When we started this Japanese porn review site over 2 years ago, it never occurred to us just how many online Japanese paysites there were. Even after the first 30 reviews, we thought that we’d already found all the best J-porn sites. But every now and then, a site comes to our attention that deserves special attention. Today’s site is HGMO.com, or “High Grade Movie Online.” The only way to describe this site is a massive uncensored network without the bullshit. There are no false advertising claims and no spammy advertisements. Just a ton of authentic content in an easy-to-access site design.
The site design is plain, but effective. It’s a good example of how you don’t need a flashy site to be a good one. The landing page displays the most recently added scene by big and small screenshots. On the right are the latest 6 updates displayed by date. Underneath are all the categories including some unique ones as well. I had to do a Google search to find what some of these niches actually meant. It turns out that Coprophilia is the name for the shit fetish porn. Don’t worry, it’s not all creepy stuff, and for the most part, it’s high-grade content all the way through. Other interesting categories included “Lolita complex,” “Insult,” and “CIM” (Cum In Mouth). Of course, there are also the main niches known from Japan including schoolgirls, anal sex, and bukkake.
There are two ways to go about finding your preferred movies. The first is to click on the MOVIES page from the top menu. This will display all 1771+ uncensored movies by date. Each page displays 36 scenes displayed by small screenshots. It’s a little too small for my liking, but you can just increase the size of your page display (ctrl + will do the trick). This way you can quickly sift through the massive archives of video content to quickly find something that catches your attention. The other way is to use the categories, but they don’t always give a perfect match. Just click on any category from the home page and you’ll be taken to the movie page with that category filter in place.
Movie formats come in standard MPEG and WMV formats, so you should have no problems getting them to play. Most movies come in full-length download options in both formats, but others are broken down into 3 or more split files. I’m not sure why this is, but it seems to be only with the older scenes. The site goes back all the way to 2003, but back in the day, the internet connection simply couldn’t handle such large downloads. Each file is approximately 1GB for MPEG, and about 3GB for WMV. There is a download limitation of 5GB per day, which limits your daily downloads to only 2 or 3 movies per day.
Here’s where things take an unexpected turn. Monthly membership to HGMO will set you back $69 per month. Authentic sites like these which are based in Japan tend to be more expensive, and if you’ve ever bought a porn DVD in Japan, then you’ll know how expensive they are. But compared to the English-marketed sites, it’s over double the cost.
Genuine Japanese porn without the censorship is hard to come across. And for high-quality uncut J-Porn, this is one of the better sites we’ve seen. It’s also one of the more expensive ones. I can understand the high cost, but what I don’t understand is the download restrictions. If it weren’t for that, this site would have received a far better rating.
