Buying adult DVDs online
April 6, 2005 2:59 PM   Subscribe

Can anyone recommend a good online retailer for adult DVDs?

I don't want to risk throwing money at any shady, fly-by-night operation. When I say "good" I mean all the things you'd hope for from an online retailer-- broad selection, good customer service, reliable site security, reasonable prices. You know, like Amazon, only for porn.

Wouldn't you rather purchase them with cash in person so as not to leave an embarrassing record which will come back to haunt you should you ever be nominated to the Supreme Court?

I, um, heard from a friend (of a friend) that Adult Video Universe was pretty good. It's run by the same people as cduniverse.com

I have been well pleased with the service of TLA Video.

Bonus feature: You can compile a "wishlist" of desired titles to share with your friends and family for birthdays or other gifting holidays.

Of course I would, caddis, but I'm looking for an obscure '70s softcore title and no brick-and-mortar retailer around here has heard of it. I gave up on any political ambitions years ago. Thanks for the suggestions!

Can't believe noone has mentioned Good Vibrations!

Don't forget NC natives Adam and Eve! They've always done well...I hear.

I have never purchased from them, but Blowfish has good organization of their video site and the reviews are interesting.

I heard from a friend of a friend of a friend that the forums at dvdtalk.com have a section devoted to answering this question.

Well? Do you want help finding it or not?

But Adam & Eve is a generally decent place; I have friends who work there.

(Interview with Adam & Eve founder Philip Harvey, including lots of info about the company's fascinating history and its aggressive, long-term defense against government attempts to shut down its mail-order business. Like I said, a decent place.)

Since everyone seems to be so fascinated by exactly what '70s softcore title has captured the imagination of Faint of Butt, it's Alice in Wonderland. I'm a huge Carroll fan, and love collecting unusual Alice adaptations. There, I said it. Happy now?

Seriously, though, thanks for the recommendations. I really appreciate it.

DVDEmpire is my favorite online source for DVDs, and they have a companion site at AdultDVDEmpire.

Greencine has: choose "Adult" from the "Browse Titles By" dropdown.

They don't have the erotic Alice in Wonderland, though.
