I agree with Maggie's review about Penthouse: a great site and I was pleasantly surprised by the content. However, one annoying feature of the site is when using a download manager, the site times out very quickly. If you wait for each movie to download in the queue, after about 2 or 3 movies, the site times out.
I've been a happy member for about 20 month. Over the past 6 months, Totem, the developer, has made major upgrades to the software and is continuing to enhance and refine its capabilities. They've been releasing improved beta's every 2-3 weeks and official versions every 8-10 weeks for the past 6 months. I expect this will continue for at least 6 more months, but don't let that make you hesitate the betas are pretty good and the main features work property.
Here are the major changes:
WARNING: The prices shown in the new review here are wrong. They have gone up.
1. There is a new pricing structure. It is no longer possible to buy a subscription of any sort. You buy credits in blocks of 2, 8 ,25 or 50. The price per credit goes down as the number of credits you buy goes up. You use credits to buy "cards" which consist of about 20 "clips" totaling 20-30 minutes of play time. Cards are priced based on the technology used to produce them. The oldest cards were recorded in 480p resolution and are not really recommended unless the model is a special favorite of yours. The next oldest cards were recorded in 720p. Until recently the newest cards were recorded in 1080p and can be downloaded in either 720 or 1080, but the price is the same regardless of size and higher than the original 720p cards. Some of the newer 720 cards were actually recorded in 1080 and are slowly being remastered and release in both 720 and 1080. The price of these remastered cards goes up from the 720 price to the 1080 price, but if you already own the card the quality upgrade is free. About 4 months ago, they began releasing 3K (1620p) cards which are available in 720, 1080 and 3K at the same higher price. The 3K cards have much improved production values and are a real improvement even if you have a small screen. Fixed discounts are offered to members depending on the number of cards they own.
2. Full screen mode. The basic mode is to play clips on you working desktop. The girl performs in front of any open windows you may have. A new feature allows one or more girls to dance on a full-screen screen saver type background. Many members have created and posted their own backgrounds enhancing this capability.
What the hell, seriously, not only did they stop having video updates but they REMOVED all the videos they had on the site. What a genius idea, let's give people LESS content. Let's get rid of all the stuff we already shot, yeah brilliant!
It looks like MC-Nudes.com must have acquired the content from the now closed site teenrotica.com, and they are uploading it, including the peeing sets. This is great news. I hope that now that MC-Nudes.com has crossed the line into peeing, maybe they will shoot some new content of their own!
Yep - I'm back on the site and wondering what's going on with the download speeds and the use of download managers. Just tried to download a video using the same manager I've always used and it quickly ended, giving me a 52 k/b file. And the browser speed is horrendous, running from around 75 to 100 kb/s. Nothing like seeing 1 hour, 10 minutes to finish a 300 meg file...
Anyone else been here recently or currently who can relate their experience with downloads?
On the plus side (sort of), I saw a reference to their making changes in the lighting on some videos and I look forward to seeing what that's all about. Just wish it wasn't taking ages to see what that's all about. First file to be finished in 47 minutes...
And today, 10 meg speed. Took seconds to download a 315 meg file. Not sure what was up last night. I've seen a site have some variation in server speed from day to day, but nothing this radical.
Constant 75-150 kb/s speed. Been mostly slow all week, with very few spikes of real speed. I'm getting way better speeds using a flash recorder on YouTube. It's ridiculous spending money for this.
I discovered this site the way I've discovered most of them over the last four years. Putting phrases into search engines, especially those that can search images and I turned up some hot shots that turned out to be from this site. I had to subscribe because I am big into this genre, but as it would appear others have found out, the content is severely lacking. Short, low quality videos, with updates far and few in between. The models appearing, while a healthy variety, are not what you might call 9s and 10s. I was happy to take a look, but I've since moved on and have not looked back.
I'm happy to see that reason prevailed with the management of this website by creating a much better site name that won't attract the authorities.
As I said in another post, I was unwilling to have a porn site that calls itself Club Seventeen on my computer in any form. While it's very unlikely that my computer would ever be taken from me and searched by the authorities, can you imagine how hard it would be to convince them that Club seventeen does not contain child pornography. Child porn includes any person younger than 18 years who appears nude and/or in sexual situations.
Cloning the Club Seventeen site into a more generic name like Club Sweetheart was the right thing to do.
It seems like when i joined the site that was maintained really badly and had shady mechanisms in place but it turns out that when i registered it was during oan ongoing ddos attack of some sort and so my comment was based on these troubles. The site should not be blamed anymore but i will describe what happened anyways.
The first 5 days the server would boot me after downloading 5 - 10 movies . i would get constant error 503/504s (they basically blocked my ip from being able to view their site) for 20 minutes even after i was finished downloading.
and than i was promised the trouble was fixed and instead they have now throttled my download speeds (from 3.5 Mb/sec) to 150 kb/sec..
they advertise as no download limits and no other site has ever done this to me so i feel its not somethign that should be expected... I would understand if they throttled my speed to 50% but down to 5% of my top speed is pretty bad.
They should change their advertisements to reflect the download speed limitations as its pretty blatant false advertising
Their collection is great and vast but who cares when they are so restrictive on your downloading. If they cant handle high download speeds they shouldnt try or pretend to. Its very frusrtating that such a highly regarded site has such shady mechanisms in place.
EDITED 2: Everything has been working without any problems for the last couple of days so it looks like it was just a matter of bad luck by registering during the atttack on their website... since i have had no more problems though.... just like to let people know that my experience was based on my first week of subscription and it seems like it was just really bad time to register during the attacks.
I would definitely reccomend this site now if you are one of those people that likes sites with a lot to choose from..
FINAL EDIT: Since the DDOS attack ended i have had absolutely no problems with this site.. no limitations and no server errors.. it truly was just bad timing
I was also given a free 2 week pass to ATKPremium for the server troubles during the few days that they were attacked..
I hadn't browsed on this site in a while and I was very surprised to find that it seems they've taken down all the video content from the site in the past month or so (Sept/Oct '14). I'd always thought of this site as much more of a photography site anyway, but did they really do away with ALL their video content?
Although the site didn't have a lot of videos, at least compared with most other sites, virtually all of the videos were wickedly hot. Wildly uninhibited performances by well-known stars like Eufrat and Carmen Gemini as well as girl-next-door types, all of whom looked like they truly enjoyed showing themselves at their nastiest for the camera. Too bad that now seems to all be gone. I never got around to actually joining but now I know I definitely won't. Most of the appeal for me went away when they took down the videos.
Actually, reading some of the other comments esp. regarding all the potential malware associated with this site, I'm glad I didn't.
Maybe if they bring back the videos AND do something about the malware problems, I would finally get around to joining.
I rejoined EB as part of a special with Watch4Beauty. The EB site has had a slight freshening, but I'm not terribly impressed with the most recent content. First, it is all "B" roll! It seems as though these are sets of slightly less attractive models or, if mainstream models, slightly lesser quality sets. So they may not have been good enough for the main site, Met Art, when they were taken. Second, it is an odd collection of old and new sets. I recognize several models that retired back around 2008 or earlier and here they are in "new releases" this month with different names and the exact same look. A few models have sets from 2007 and new sets in 2014 and they look exactly the same...because they are old sets just being released now. (To their credit, EB lists the age of the model when the sets were taken, but I don't think those ages are accurate.) That usually only happens because the set was not rated very highly back when the model was popular but now, what the heck, who cares, release it! Fourth, some sets of once popular models might be a bit off because when these sets were taken, these models were very near retirement. There are a few sets where I looked at the model, recognized her and although she was still very attractive, she was several years older than she was at her peak. My typical male reaction was "Wow, what happened? She used to be really hot!" There is nothing that reminds you that YOU are getting old more than images of a favorite model showing that SHE is getting old. Depressing. There are also a few sets from the time before a popular model perfected her look. A lot of eastern European girls took a little time to perfect their looks and some of these sets are the "before" pictures. And lastly, releasing a set in 3 parts is positively annoying. There is no reason for this other than to string us along and get more money. Many Met Art sets have 120-160 images in them. These EB sets usually have 40-60 images spread over 2-3 or more pages of 20 images a page. They either do that to minimize load on their servers, or to make it look like there are more images. Either way, its a really cheap trick!
This site is still better than a lot of others out there, but it is really unfortunate when a good site goes mediocre.
Most here probably know the deal:
You just signed up/payed and look forward to login on a new site - and then nada.
This site looks just fine in the previews - som quite unfamiliar and great looking models....
But...I keep getting: Login og password invalid. By, George..I know how to write those two ....but still - and then: Wait 15 minuttes and try again. And the same over and over again...
No answer so far from neither Babefox or CCBill......grrrrr!
I was going back over the list of my old reviews to see what was what with some old sites I'd signed up for. The old timers on here might remember the "exchange" I had with good ol' Matt so it wouldn't surprise them that I was chuckling a bit before I even clicked on the link for this one.
NO MONTHLY SIGNUPS? Is he serious? $49 for six months is the minimum. That's a money grab I've never seen before.
I have a long term subscription to Met Art and although a few sites in their affiliation group are discounted or sometimes free for trial periods, many of the sites that were once $10 a month to Met-Art members are now full-price. So ED is $29.00 as of the date of this note. That's really too bad as I used to join an extra site in the network every month or so. At $10 or $15, I wouldn't think twice before joining. At $29.00, these sites are competing with literally every other site on the Internet and this network usually loses out on the opportunity to earn my subscription money as I'll chose some other site I have not been a member of before. If anyone finds a discount, publish it here!
I'd let my membership of TLE lapse as the quality of the photo sets in particular had slipped a bit and they only release 2 films per week. However, I decided to rejoin for a month.
The bad news is that the photo sets are still a bit down on what they were a year or so ago.
The good news is that they have stepped up the release schedule. They now do 3 films a week (instead of 2), and release a photo set every day (they used to do photo sets on the days that they didn't do films). So thats 3 films/7 photo sets instead of 2 films/5 photo sets.
I don't think its enough for me to become a long term member, but I'll definitely dip into it more often.

I asked Khan to list this site and he told me that it had been delisted as it was gone. It now is up and shows several reviews and comments. If I had read them, I would not have joined as it just isnít my taste. This is certainly a matter of opinion and my purpose here is not to write a review.
My issue is with trying to get a refund. There was no confirmation email as many sites send. Another sign that something was not right was that although having CCBill, they did not take Mastercard. Too many charge backs maybe?
I was on the site less than an hour when I realized it was a disaster. I downloaded very little and what I did I deleted immediately. There was no link for contact us. I found one addressed to prospective models and reached out to the webmaster. Email not functional. I found a link for information, also not functional. I contacted CCBill and asked them for a refund. They told me that unless the site did not work, no refund. I explained the problems to them and they tried the email addresses. Several hours later they issued a refund.
By the way nothing has changed on the site since Spencer's review two years ago. The last update was August 2012 although they claim three updates per week.
I've been a member for about 6 months now. The product is unique and enjoyable. As the reviewer noted it can easily get expensive.
The software is free. They make money by selling shows which they call cards. A card consists of 15-20 individual clips all of the same model in the same costume. Each clip is from 15 seconds to about 3 minutes in length. Some clips are fully clothed. Some clips are strip tease. Some start naked. Some have props like a dance pole. Typically, they will hire one model to create 5-6 cards during a 2-3 day recording session. They release about 5 new cards every week. Most cards are solo acts, but they have a few pairs.
There are a variety of ways to buy cards. A subscription will get you a random choice of cards each week, not simply the newest. This is the cheapest per card, but you have no choice. The most expensive way to get cards is to buy them at full price, $2 per. There is a middle ground. All cards eventually rotate through a demo area where you can sample some short fully clothed clips and buy the cards a half price. I've bought most of my cards through the demo route.
One of the other comments here was that customer service is nonexistent. That's not quite right, but it is not very responsive. However, the forum on the web site has very helpful moderators. Before you spend a lot of money, visit the forum and read some of the message threads. The web site also lists all the available models and shows so you can get a good idea of what's out there.
Over the years, they have improved the technical quality of the cards. The original cards were 480p of vertical resolution. These are now essentially obsolete, but some "best of" collections are still available as "classic" cards. The oldest regular cards are 720p. For the past 2 years all cards were recorded in 1080p. These start at about card 600. However, they were released at 720p. Since about card 900, all new cards have been released at both 720 and 1080. They are now reediting and rereleasing the cards between 600 and 900 in 1080p. They claim and the newest cards have been recorded at about 1600p and that they will be releasing 1600p versions of those cards real soon now.
Other than improving the resolution of the cards, they have been very slow to add new features. The web forum is full of requests and recommendations for improving the product, but very little seems to have been done over the 6 month's I've been present. However, as a software developer myself, I must admit that adding new functions and testing them is time consuming. It is clear to me that they have a very limiting software development staff.
The software essentially presents clips (not cards) in random order. It is possible to make playlists of selected cards to control what you see, but not much more. However, there is third-party software that will let you create multi-clip shows to more exactly suit your tastes.
In recent months they have been splitting their photo sets up in to 2 or 3 parts so instead of a complete photo set every day you now only get a half or third of a photo set for your daily update and usually have to wait 1 to 2 weeks to complete the set. A disappointing development for one of my once favourite sites.
Been here years ago - so why not try it again.
Well, yes I did - it's like back years and years in porn/style/quality.
They got over 8000 vids, wauw - and over 25.000 galleries.
But: None of that is real great material - it's like going back to the 1990th. And when looking for some earlier models: The vids are - still - close to trash - poor quality - no editing here.
And the newer material: Boring - for most models....and certainly not all here are exclusive - and in spite of the vast amount, I vasted my $29.95
