Elephanttube.com is a free tube site featuring a large range of content across all major porn genres. Despite boasting a very large collection of more than 51 million video clips, Elephanttube, unlike other free porn sites, doesn't actually host any of its own content on its web page. Rather, Elephanttube sources its material from other free sites and sorts them into categories on its home page. Effectively, Elephanttube acts as a porn indexing site rather than a typical hosting site, even though it functions like a normal porn site in practice. The original site of any given video is listed under its thumbnail, and when the user clicks it, they are taken to the original site where they can view the video.
Elephanttube appears to be maintained by PB Web Media B.V., a Dutch information technology company based in Haarlem, Netherlands, that manages a network of over 100 adult and browser game web sites. Their legal information seems to be outsourced to a separate company, AdultWebMasterNet.com, which handles any complaints directed towards the web site. As of November 2018, they are ranked 7,982 globally and 5,607 in the United States by Alexa, meaning they are a fairly popular web site.
The content available on Elephanttube is, as previously mentioned, sourced from dozens of other free porn sites. It appears that none of the videos available are hosted on Elephanttube itself. Elephanttube lists a wide range of popular categories on its front page, such as MILF, Teen and PAWG. Clicking on one of these categories then takes users to an index of videos available on different web sites. The videos average from 5 to 10 minutes in length. When a user clicks on a link, they are taken to the original host web site, which may vary in quality from excellent to terrible. While this allows Elephanttube to advertise a wide range of content and an enormous library, the different sources of the videos presented make for a widely varying experience in quality. Likewise, this lack of consistency means that users can't be certain of the safety of their browsing devices while using Elephanttube. This is a strange set-up in a time where most free porn web sites host all of their own content. Elephanttube seems to be more of a middle man than anything else.
Despite that, the selection available is incredible, featuring just about anything one could be looking for in a porn video. The benefit of sourcing content from dozens of web sites is a vast body of content to choose from. However, users should take care to ensure the host sight of the content they are interested in is safe to use. Elephanttube features a “Submit” link as well, suggesting that they accept (and presumably host) amateur content, but the link to do so is dead, and all of the amateur content found on the site appeared to be links to other pages, like the rest of the content available. Elephanttube is completely free to use and there are no accounts to sign up for.
Elephanttube's home page features a wide range of categories up front, marked by related thumbnails. These categories include everything from popular stand bys, to more niche and fetish categories, such as BDSM, Jerk Off Instructions and Femdom. Further, after scrolling past the categories listed by thumbnail, there are further listings of dozens more categories sorted without thumbnails, providing users with a very wide selection to browse. Any of the few things not listed can be easily found via the search bar featured at the top of each page. Elephanttube also notably has the option to sort all videos in all categories by three larger, main categories: Straight, Gay and Shemale.
Like most free tube sites, a large amount of the content comes from longer, full-length movies made by professional porn studios. Consequentially much of the content available features well-known porn stars and niche favorites alike. Unlike most other free porn sites, however, there is no option to browse videos specifically by actress, apart from the use of the search bar. This creates a hit-or-miss scenario where much of the content a user may be looking for gets overlooked by the web site's search algorithm, whereas content a user isn't interested in may get lumped in with other search results. The lack of categorization by star seems to be an oversight on the part of Elephanttube, as this is a common and popular feature on many other free porn sites.
As part of the Netherlands-based adult web site network PB Web Media B.V., Elephanttube is a member of a fairly large network of other porn web sites such as TubeGalore, iXXX, FUQ, HDPorzo and MatureTube. These other web sites work similarly to Elephanttube, offering index searches of free content hosted on other web sites. There does not appear to be any subscription service offered by this network.
Elephanttube is completely free to use and there is no subscription fee needed to use its services. Likewise, there are no accounts, free or paid, that users can sign up for.
Unlike most free porn web sites, Elephanttube indexes its content rather than hosting videos itself. While it may function like typical tube sites in practice, all videos available for viewing are sourced from dozens of other free web sites, meaning that users are taken to those sites when they select a video from Elephanttube's line up. While this enables Elephanttube to boast a massive collection of content spanning dozens of genres and niche interests, the quality of the original host web sites varies dramatically, from top notch to practically unusable. Most of these third-party sites fall somewhere in the middle, featuring short clips of standard definition content. While this is not necessarily a dealbreaker for Elephanttube, its an odd business model to use in an age where most free porn sites host their own content, and therefore have control over the user interface and experience when viewing videos. It can be hard to find good content available on a decent third-party site through Elephanttube. The safety of these linked web sites for browsing should always be a consideration when using Elephanttube. This can make for a frustrating experience, especially considering the availability of better web sites that feature centralized video hosting.
