This is another site on my list. Was hoping it would be networked with some of there other sites, but looks like they have built up a lot of sets now.
My question is on full access. If I understood the comment I saw on OnlyAll sites, the rotate sets or give you only a few sets, and then you have to pay for more.
Do we get all the content from launch of the site? Not many sites do this, though since this is a special niche site, I can see them maybe pulling material or limiting. Not that I agree with it and generally stay away from such policies.
Thanks for any help.
For a while they had an offer of $9.99/month. But that apparently expired.
I was just a member, and they sent me an email inviting me back, at a special price of $24.99/month, which is their regular price.
PU offers a discounted price of $14.95/month (recurring).
(Automated programs sometimes don't make a lot of sense. It's nice that they have a automated program offering a special price to former members. But when the special price turns out to be the same as the regular price, you sometimes wonder if anyone is asleep at the wheel driving your machine.)
Why do they have a captcha when you want to check the balance on your gift card?
You have to enter the number of the gift card.
Then you have to enter the captcha.
Who the heck is going to use this service to steal something, or play games, or whatever. Why add a captcha, when some of them are so fricking hard to read, you have to enter the captcha several times before you guess it correctly.
If I were God, I'd design to world to suit me better. First, I would assign 100 of the most beautiful girls to satisfy my wants. Then I would increase my wants to satisfy those lovely girls.
I joined here on a whim, due to the very good TBP price. It's nothing revolutionary, but it's a solid site with lots of content - my review to follow. But for such a big, high-profile site, the members area is a little disappointing. Page loads are slow and there are frequent errors when loading pages (sometimes have to load 2-3 times to get a page to work).
As noted in a recent review, the advanced search - which is essential for a site of this size - is AWOL, so just paging through the models is the best way to browse. And although you can add photographers as favourites, there doesn't seem to be a way to click through and see all their material.
Granted it's a bit churlish to complain for the price! But a site like this should be more on top of this stuff...
I got my hopes up when my eyes lit on all the "strip" tags underneath the scenes, contained in this site, until I realized that every site I have ever belonged to is a strip site by their standards if it means that a model takes only a couple of items of clothing off.
"Strip," to me, means more than taking off a bikini top and bottom, or a bra and panties. Another site that can't quite deliver to my taste. This is just a personal observation, since they call themselves a glamour site and not one that majors in full strips.
This site is currently not accepting new members - presumably in preparation for the switch to being managed by Met Art? I'm hoping that's soon - I'm quite a fan and as I am a long-term member at TLE, I can join any other network site for $10 :)
Interestingly, Holly's other sites, like Holly Core and Forever Vamp are still taking members - there is some overlap in the material here with her main site so I wonder what is/isn't happening with these?
A recent back-and-forth with another veteran PU brought to mind once again how this site gets short shrift in an odd way. It's rarely mentioned in the ALS Director's blogs. It hasn't been added to the MetArt Network as ALS Scan, it's more high-profile sister site has. And yet it features models that are just as hot.
I'd been wondering what happened to the shoot that ALS had done with Jessyca/Jessica Swan, an incredibly hot young Hungarian babe that Alex had mentioned once in the Director's blog as having been shot, then not talked about since. I was amazed when I glanced at ALS Angels for the first time in a long time today and I see that their new update is none other than Jessica Swan.
Time for me to re-join - and the cost of joining - 1 month $24.95, 2 months, $34.95, 3 months $44.95 and damned generous given ALS's quality.
Download managers do not work effectively on this site because the links are only active for 1 hour.
This is from their FAQ:
"My Download Manager Isn't Working
Our new members area experience was designed to be viewed on every device we could get our hands on. Unfortunately the way the Android operating system works with its video player, we had to do some crafty authorization techniques to make our site work on Android phones, tablets, the Chromebook, as well as all other implementation.
One of the trade offs is that our download links are only valid for 60 minutes. So if you use your download manager to queue a download for while you're sleeping, that will no longer work. We apologize for the inconvenience. If Android ever fixes this issue, we'll be sure to roll back to a more standard way of linking."
BTW I don't accept their excuse because other sites work around it and Android don't require them to expire their links witin 1 hour. 24 hours would be reasonable and would be an easy change if they genuinely want to support download managers.
Also I think the Site Details for the TBP review need to be amended to note that Download managers don't work properly.
I just joined Bikini Riot, and really like the site so far! Lots of gorgeous women in sexy bikinis! The photos and videos look great--vids are 720p HD (last couple of years), and both photos and videos are well done. Site navigation is simple and intuitive. On the negative side, there's too many fake boobs for my taste, the update frequency is a bit low (though there is a lot of archived material), the high res pics are only 2000 pixel on the long dimension, and the videos are basically the same thing every time. But that's really not bad when the girls and their bikinis are so hot! I haven't even gotten to the 2 bonus sites yet. I'll post a review in 2 or 3 weeks.
In the members area Playboy Plus has separated the Playboy Girls galleries for an additional charge. If you un check the box and click on the link to get more information they automatically charge your credit card an additional 49.95 on top of your paid monthly subscription. You get no confirmation page or option to decline this fee. A day later you'll get an email stating they charged your card.
Signed up here the other day and so far loving the high quality photography and the collection of first time never seen before models which features a good percentage of exotic beauties from Asian and Latin countries.
The video collection is rather limited though, only 13 total on the site and only 1 video update in the last year. Also there are no downloads available for the videos and even though the highest quality streaming states 720p it doesn't really look hd.
Hopefully I'll get back with a full review in the next week or so.
It's been 2 years since I've been at this site so I was interested to read the latest review at TBP. Under cons they quote " No ZIP files for the image sets". They certainly had everything zipped two years ago so have they now removed the zips or is this just an oversight on the part of TBP? Are there any current subscribers out there who can confirm or deny the presence of zip files?
Metart starting to offer sensuality in its videos.
A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned in a comment that Metart was starting to add a bit of eroticism to their videos. The video I cited was posted 2013-04-01, titled "Spera". The model is Christel A.
For many years, the Metart videos, featuring lovely young nude teens, were boring or sterile.
The Spera video definitely has a bit of erotic feeling to it.
Today, I saw a public preview video at Metart, titled "The Girls of Metart", starring Sapphira, that definitely qualifies as erotic art.
If, in the future, the videos at Metart follow this new direction, they will be a strong addition to an already great site.
One word of caution: If you watch this video, don't expect the great mass of videos at Metart to have this erotic quality: This is a new direction, a new sense of erotic exploration in their video library. The older videos, in spite of the lovely models, are basically boring and a waste of time to watch.
But the newest videos, just based on the Spera video, and the newest preview video named "The Girls of Metart", is really an amazing advance in eroticism. In the newest videos, girls are allowed to touch themselves, and each other. This is still softcore, but in the older videos, girls basically did not touch themselves, or each other, in a sensual way.
I mainly joined this site thanks to the discount price. Just thought I would throw that in as a reason for other webmasters to take the discount route.
I'm still a little iffy on the whole heartcore genre, but I do like the content better here than on the other heartcore sites. I have a few of the same complaints I had with Sex Art, I don't understand why solo sets are included, unless this model is extremely good at masturbation, dirty talk and has a lot of charisma. Eve Angel didn't do the talk at all, but she set a standard very few solo models reach, thanks to her ability to communicate with body movements and eye contact with the camera. The other is more minor complaint and it is the girl/girl content. I don't understand why one of these heartcore sites haven't tried 100% boy/girl. Maybe one has and I haven't found it yet?
Either way, for me, I liked it much better than Sex Art. Will review it over the next week or two once I've had a chance to see it all.
This site gives the impression that it is updating daily but in reality all they are doing each day is taking a set from the bottom of the updates page (October 2010) and placing it back at the top with the current day's date. Hopefully I'll find time for a full review next week.
Is Metart starting to add a bit of eroticism to their videos?
For years, I have mentioned/complained that Metart videos are boring, in spite of the lovely models the videos have featured.
Today, I saw a video from Metart that actually has a bit of erotic feeling to it. The model does a mild strip-tease, and she actually touches her breasts. She also glides her fingers over other parts of her body (shoulders, belly, thighs, etc.). This is really softcore eroticism, but it's a vast improvement over past Metart videos.
The video was posted 2013-04-01, titled "Spera". The model is Christel A.
Question for Met-Art members out there...Are you signed up for email alerts for your favorite models' new photosets, but NOT getting them? I have never gotten any, and wonder if they are being sent to the spam folder by my ISP. Thanks!
Joint this site. When opening HP for members you are informed to download 1 pic set per hour. This hint is on top of EVERY side.
Good photo contend, less videos.
When exceeding the "1 set/h" strange broken downloads occur.
In practice there is a download limit, cause it protects you from downloading in this annoying way.
have quitted the site after finding this out.
I just noticed it today, but they added this feature on Friday 3/15. You can now leave comments at the bottom of the photo sets. I also found out you can get timed out if you leave too many in a short while. LOL! I'm glad they added this feature.
Easier to build a collection of playmates through newsgroup.
Even though many of the photos of playmates are available at this site, it's easier to build a collection of playmates through a newsgroup than it is through Playboy PLus.
The collection will also be more complete through a newsgroup.
The problem with a newsgroup is that you have to learn to use a newsreader, and pay for the newsgroup access, and a few other methods you will have to learn.
But for fans of past playmates, a newsgroup offers more complete files (in photos, not in videos), and an easier method of collecting and sorting your photos.
It's been many years since I belonged to a newsgroup, but Playboy Plus made me realize that poor site structure (and other problems with the site) makes newsgroup access a worthwhile alternative for collecting Playboy material.
But there is a lot to learn about how to use a newsgroup effectively.
