Celebrate Ten Years of User-Generated Porn!

xHamster is celebrating its tenth birthday this month, marking over a decade of helping horny, exhibitionist xHamster fans a place to upload and watch personal sex videos. That first video — a sex scene filmed in a sauna— launched a company which now boast over 30 million daily users, and ranks as one of 100 most visited websites in the entire world. 

“That sauna helped launch not only a business, but a lifestyle,” said Alex Hawkins, VP of xHamster. “Unlike other tube sites, we don’t depend on studio content, but rather have built a community of two billion likeminded users who enjoy sharing their private videos with the world.”

xHamster now boasts over 4 million videos from nearly two billion users in 197 countries and has helped lead the way for other tube sites, and the adult industry in general. The company has been at the forefront of technology, privacy and the rights of LGBTQ community. 

In the ten years since it launched, xHamster has:

• Pioneered privacy protections for users, becoming one of the first sites to go to the secure HTTPS protocols, and fighting the UK’s Digital Economy Bill, which would require adult visitors to register with a government porn database.

• Worked with users in countries where sexual and political content is banned to evade blocks and filters.

• Used its power for the good: protesting North Carolina’s controversial HB2 anti-trans bathroom bill, the defunding of Planned Parenthood, Utah’s refusal to provide sex education in schools. 

• Created its own successful beer line, xHamster beer, and a silicone doll, xHamsterina.

• Launched original, sex-related programming, including: Sex Factor, a hit porn reality show with a million-dollar prize; the raunchy, SFW cartoon series xHamsterland; and the acclaimed sex ed series The Box.

To celebrate their ten-year anniversary, xHamster has created a portrait of the xHamster logo using thumbnail photos from thousands of users.

This month, xHamster also debuts a new version of the site with a low-light “go dark” function, that keeps your nighttime visits discreet.

“We’re a different type of porn company, and invested in the well-being of our users,” said Hawkins. “Our users have responded to us. In the next ten years, we hope to be the first adult company to become a mainstream media brand, with not just porn, but original mainstream programming, an advocacy arm — maybe even a theme park. We’ve grown so much in the past ten years, and we’re dreaming big.”

I have a few vids that are getting pretty good weekly view numbers, so now I'm getting hit pretty much daily by the scammers trying to get me to Friend them. They used to leave spam comments to my stuff, but I think the site admins figured out a way to stop that. But I still get the scam friend requests. What I do now is deny the friend request, but go to their profile page and post this message:

WARNING: the scam website this user is advertising contains numerous malware attack vectors affecting Windows computers. BEWARE.

If enough comments like this start showing up on these scammers' profile pages, it will eventually "poison the well" enough that they might stop.

Will Xhamster ever develop software to rid site of the worthless scumbag that has hundreds of these fake accounts ? Is there anyone in the Xhamster community with the computer expertise to create software that could be changed as this scumbag creates any new wording.It would detect these "key" words & automatically drop these bogus criminal profiles ?
