Previews sure look good and the monthly price looks ok although I think I saw the ugly regional pricing. I guess I could live with it now that the euro is weak again.
The interface is fancy and manages to hide the total number of scenes and update frequencey from me. Can anyone comment? Just the real action scenes, I'm not interested in solo, talk and having fun ones as some certainly look like that.
All is 1080p? How are the photos, are they high resolution and zipped?
Maybe against my better judgement I rejoined briefly on a discount to pick up some updates I liked the look of. Seriously this site has gone downhill, but now they seem to have stopped bothering completely.
There have been loads of days recently with no updates, lots of old stuff being reposted (without stating it is old), and almost all the blogging is about the rough new site Colette.com.
In the last 4 days there has been 1 update, and that was a reject from Colette.com which wasn't hard enough for that site - it was with Aubrey who had just done an anal scene and been so hurt by it that she couldn't do the anal planned in this scene so they just stuffed it up on x-art instead. It really is just rough hardcore porn now, and Brigham Field seems to have almost nothing to do with the site any more.
They seem to have given up on this site completely - why shouldn't the members do the same?
The way they film the video is get amazing. I like that they don't get into the useless staged conversations to get to the sex. They just let the models do their thing, and the models have great chemistry with each other. Great stuff.
Anybody else having trouble downloading from this site. It's terribly slow and can take upwards of 15-20 minutes just to download even the 960X540 file format. I really enjoy the site but I had to cancel my subscription because of this issue.
Following my recent review, my subscription ends in a few days and this is my last time home, so I've just downloaded the last material I will get from here....
We kept a film with my favourite model Susie (Dido elsewhere) to watch at the end... what a shocker. It was a washed-out, blocky, pixelated mess - I can't believe anything this technically poor was put on a professional site, effectively unwatchable. As I said in my review, clearly no-one is bothering to check on the quality of the material any more.
I also quickly looked at another film - it was a DP scene with James Deen, so it had a pretty high uggh factor to start with but it did have a sort of creepy fascination. The girl was a scraggy little thing with buck teeth, an average little porn girl and a long way short of the standard x-art used to have. It was just shot from the middle distance with no style, and the end was careless - a guy came on her face, a quick clunk edit to a shot of her with obvious fake cum for 2 seconds and clunk, the film stopped. No time or care taken at all.
These two films sum up why I am out of this site... It really isn't glamcore any more.
I for one wish X-Art would hurry up and launch their harder-hardcore version -- it that is indeed still in the pipeline.
I keep looking for videos that explore more vigorous anal and facials but with X-Art models, style, production values and beauty.
One idea I've become increasingly drawn to is seeing "glamour bukkake" or high-end, high-quality art videos devoted to women consuming semen slowly from their faces. It doesn't have to be a gross-out 20 men who provide the semen, but it might be from 2 or 3 guys.
The point is there really aren't any HQ artistic videos exploring the semen fetish today out there. Glamorous facials that take some camera time (like 5-15 minutes) and show lots of semen worshiping and slow semen eating -- this sort of fetish I would love to see from X-Art.
All with lots of eye contact.
Many men get off only after the male actor has ejaculated. For that very reason, X-Art and other glamour sites ought to spend more time on the post-cum head and various fetishistic ways of eating cum. Perhaps from champagne glasses or pacifiers, perhaps just right off another female model's face, perhaps off a glass table top.
But something harder-edged and more fetishistic is in order. Not gross and mindless, like "1000 Facials" or some German/Japanese bukkake high-volume site, but something artistic and expressive of the love a woman can show for a man's sperm.
I joined this Website lst week with a 1 year subscription. Since then i'm struggeling with a lot of technical issues. Contacting Support but there is no solution:
- session timeout after 15 minutes, re-login forced
- Password is showing in clear text, not masked
- missing Login-button on Login-site
- missing file details on WMV-Files (runtime, codec, etc.)
- filesize of the Videos up to 1,4 GByte for 20 minutes (HD)
- downloading via IE10 native download Option results in Long time waiting (up to 60 minutes), downloadspeed starts with 2MByte/s and Drops down to 300kByte/s. some downloadmanager dosn't work (FDM)
The have nice Videos and pitureset's, but the usability of the Website is really nerving and not user-friendly.
I've had subscriptions at X-Art twice. The women are almost all gorgeous (d'oh), although a number of my favorites from 2011 are no longer appearing. Of late the videos have gotten (to me) repetitive and tedious. Far less g/g than previously and a lot more b/g, where they have fallen into their own pattern for every scene. I do prefer their gentle approach to sex over most h/c (no spitting, choking, atm, 40-min bangs) but now it's pretty boring.
X-Art has a new feature I just noticed. Live cams. I don't think it's a service that X-Art itself created. It's more like a link to a live cam feed that X-Art links to. So X-Art members can watch live cams, for free for the public chats, or by paying a fee to enter the private chats. Just like a lot of the adult sites seem to be doing.
I remember the old days when Met-Art had their live cam shows. But that was different, in that Met-Art itself created the live cam shows, and allowed members to watch the shows the girls put on for free (public chats), or by paying a fee to watch the private chats. The Met-Art cams were special, because the girls were regulars, and the shows they put on, which were mainly not that explicit, were really audience friendly, and the girls often developed a rapport with the audience members. It was more like a club than the live cams that are offered today.
Many of the live cams today, although supposedly free, are basically designed to cost the members money. The old Met-Art live cams were less designed to cost the members money. You could enjoy the girls shows for many hours each day for free.
Unfortunately, Met-Art dropped that service many years ago. They did offer a link to a live cam service afterwards, but that service was more like the ones that are currently being offered, which are designed to make money off the members, instead of being truly free.
I finally took the plunge and joined, very impressed
I was always impressed by xart looks and the models looked great, but had feared it maybe too soft for my tastes and not so into solo scenes.
But joined last night and have to say I'm really impressed, its softer hardcore that's for sure but makes a refreshing change and I find theres lots of models I like with either a lesbian or boy/girl scene and it's great to see not just solo stuff which I wouldn't of joined to be honest if that's all they did here, Its a really good site, I'll full review soon.
Site asks for username and password, and says the link may not be secure.
Sometimes, you're already in the members area, but you click a link to download a photoset or video, and you have to give your user name and password again. But what's worse, you see on the form where you enter the information, the notice: "The server uses Basic authentication, which means that the method used to send your user name and password to the server may not be secure."
So I log out, log in again, go to the model page, hit the link to download the video again, and I still get the popup asking for my user name and password, which the message that the method may not be secure.
As far as I know, I've never been a member of a paysite that asks me for my user name and password, at the same time telling me that I am using a link that may not be secure.
I've been blocked in the past, because a paysite said either my username or password had been hacked.
So I don't want to get blocked again, by using a non-secure link to send this information, that is supposed to be confidential.
But I still want to download content, and this is frustrating.
Not sure if I am allowed to post about another site here, but there is a link at Freeones for 1 month access to X-Art for $9.95. If you were waiting around for enough new content to make it worth your while, this may make it the right time to join/re-join. Cheers!
Good quality pics and videos, nice women too though the scenes are rather boring. Doesnt seem to update very frequently and I reckon for the price a once ayear trip will enable you to get all the updates in one monthly go.
This is a very attractive looking site but browsing in the preview mode I have some doubts about the videos. 1080p Quicktime files are in some cases smaller than 200 megabytes when I'm used to single HD scenes being closer to one gigabyte in the least. Are they upscaled and heavily compressed or just very short?
I understand this used to be more of a photo site so could it be that those older videos despite their resolution were just a bonus?
This site has been around for a number of years.
It used to be called "Beauty Is Divine".
At that time it was strictly a softcore teen glamor site. There were no videos that I remember.
Most of the models were really stunning.
The problem was that you only had a small number of photosets, and each photoset had a small number of photos.
Then the name of the site changed a few years ago to "X-art".
They started adding videos to the site.
The videos over the last couple of years or so are becoming hardcore.
The videos have a short runtime, 10 minutes or less.
The videos are very high quality (in lighting, focus, high definition, etc.).
The photosets are also becoming not just softcore, but hardcore as well.
I think the photography of the photos is as good as any major photo site, but some PU members have commented they thought the photography at this site was not excellent.
This site is not a mega-site in the amount of photosets and videos. But almost all the models are extremely attractive. And the videos and photosets are extremely high quality.
There are definitely more photosets than videos at this site, but that is because of the site history, when the site was strictly photosets.
The current updates at the site include both photosets and videos.
The preview pages show you nice-sized thumbnails of many of the covers for the site photosets and videos. The preview could be improved by including sample photos, and by a few sample 1-minute videos, so you could get a clear idea of the quality of the photos and videos.
You will probably wish each photoset had more photos, because the models are mainly lovely, and you want to see more of them.
And the videos, at less than 10 minutes each, seem very short. You will almost certainly wish the videos were longer.
If you like the type of photography at this site, I think the
site is well worth at least a 1 month membership.
I'm thinking of taking this comment, and turning it into a site review, because it sure as hell looks like it could have been written as a site review.
Copyright Nov. 16, 2010, by lk2fireone, in case I do write a review of this site, and the material in this reply is used as the basis for a site review.
Thanks to the comments from the kind members here, I had a good idea of what to expect from this site. It's worth noting, however, that the updates appear to be coming every 2-3 days pretty steadily these days as opposed the every 3-4 days previously.
I like the content very much, and I don't regret joining. I'm a big fan of slender models doing girl/girl and solo and good photography, so this site seemed ideal for me. The content is a lot like MET-Art's, but the models are allowed to go where we always wished MET would let their models go and look great doing it. I can't think of any site that has better looking models *and* makes its models look better, MET included, cept perhaps Explicite-Art.
As other reviewers have stated, both the videos and the photo sets are short, and it's hard to tell why. The shoots take a long time to set up, and the models seem into it, and yet things are wrapped up awfully quickly, with a few exceptions. It often seems like such a gratuitous waste, and that may be the only negative I've found. You're kind of left thinking that there's a longer, less chopped-up version that's being sold elsewhere.
While I can't recommend a long-term commitment at this point, it's certainly worth a month's sub, to me anyway. I reckon that I got my 20 bucks worth, and will keep an eye on it to see if it might be worth a return visit later on. If ever they begain daily updates and/or longer videos *of the same quality* then I'd consider a long-term commitment.
