- Very large archive of files going back to 2004, although there are a lot of gaps.
- Very quick and reliable downloads, always maxes out my internet connection (around 2 MBytes/sec).
- Films are very well made and very stylish.
- Plenty of diversity in the models.
- Mostly exclusive content, but some has logos of other sites like Marc Dorcel.
- Multiple sizes and resolutions of photos & videos, although I only ever download the highest available for any update
- Streaming available, again I haven't tried it..
- A lot of the earlier material is very low definition, as low as 360p. Low bitrate makes it unwatchable on a large screen.
- The website is poorly laid out. New updates aren't clearly dated and the names on the updates are very inconsistant.
- The cross-site advertising is a pain.
- Many of the photo sets don't have zip files.
- Many photo sets are of very poor quality. Many are out of focus, poorly lit, and low definition.
- There seems to be a lot of duplicated material with different names.
- I'm not really sure if there is any actual new material. After joining I noticed that Met had actually announced buying the Ninn archives, rather than the Ninn site, so it is possible that they are just re-releasing old material at higher definition.
- Although it is possible to vote & comment, there are very few votes and almost no comments, so there is no feel of any community.
- There are quite a few dead links and empty tabs in the updates. For example the 2006 tab is empty.
Michael Ninn is mainly very stylized and fetishistic material, some of which is genuinely artistic. Films and associated photo sets are released together at varying frequencies.
I joined this site as a special offer when joining SexArt. It gave an option of a very cheap membership within one hour of joining SexArt. I did a quick look around, and thought this site might be interesting. Unfortunately I had only seen some Solo Erotica and Innocence material, I had missed the abusive stuff. I'm afraid it isn't really my thing - I am very aware of the nasty abusive side of modern porn, which is why I despise so much of it, and a lot of the material on this site is exactly the kind of stuff I don't want to see. Much of the material isn't just fetishist, it is very nasty, aggressive and often looks very violent. The girls frequently seem to be in extreme discomfort, if not pain. There is a huge amount of slapping, humiliation and abuse. The BG material is pretty much 100% anal, and often shockingly brutal. Having said that, the films are well made and very imaginative and must have a high budget for porn, and I have found maybe 10% of the films which I can enjoy. The photo sets are mostly a waste of time.
I'm not sure how this site is meant to fit in with the other Met Art sites which, except for the mysterious Magiksex, all seem to be done with great respect to the performers. To be honest,the presence of this kind of material made me question continuing with any sites on the Met Art network. They need to be a bit careful at least with the cross site advertising if their network is going to include material like this.
It seems that the material is old, and with no comments or interaction and a somewhat uneven release schedule the whole thing has an air of a neglected backwater. It really is material for the most hardened porn consumer, certainly not for couples, and my wife and I found a lot of it sickening. I won't be renewing the membership.

This is a unique site content-wise as far as I can tell. Being tired of the classic gonzo porn, I found my self searching the web for something more "artistic", with beautiful models, good production etc.. Naturally I stumbled upon sites like Sex Art, X-Art, The Life Erotic. The thing with these sites, and this is a matter of personal preference of course, is that while they are top notch sites with high quality content, I found many of their updates quite soft for my liking.
Then I found Michael Ninn. If I had to describe the content of the site, I would characterize it as "Artistic Hardcore". Because it may be part of the Met Art Network, but make no mistake, this is mainly a hardcore site.
As far as content goes, there's a wide variety: Solo, Girl-Girl, Boy-Girl, Anal, Double Penetration, Double Vag.
All of the content in the site is dated, but there's a quirk. Many of the updates, while they might be released nowadays, have definitely been shot years ago. For example there's a 2012 Katsuni update, where I can clearly see that she's pre-boobjob at least 4-5 years back. I'm not sure if this is actually a negative or a "con".
Some technical notes:
HD content is not much. From August '12 and back it's 360p SD, or what they call 480p HD , which of course isn't HD (lol). Also some videos come with low bitrate for my tastes. For example you have some 1080p videos with 2000K bitrate. Also something that is more of a director's choice I think, is the fact that in some videos there's a certain "choppy-ness" which is by choice. That gets on my nerves sometimes, but what can you do, none's perfect. :P
I've gone through 3 years worth of updates, and have found about 3-4 duplicates, and 5 missing updates. Updates that were listed in the browsing page, but their link was "dead".
Although I don't do much streaming, the web-player is a bit slow. Buffering times could be faster, as it happens with all the network's sites.
One thing I have appreciated is that there's no timeout in their download links. You can queue as many as you like in your download manager and leave them for hours. I have confirmed at least 10+ hours of no timeout, and download speeds that maxed my connection easily at 1,5MB/s
Photosets: I personally don't download photosets, but from what I've seen, every video has a matching one, and it's offered in either a slideshow at the site, or as a zip download. Quality varies. I checked some of the recent ones, and they are at 3000x2000. Some of the older ones(a year back) I found at 1500x1000.
Bottom line: For me, content wise this one of the best sites I've ever seen. It covers a wide variety of niches with top of the line production. Also , the ability to have 2 minute previews as a non member is excellent, because this might not be for everyone. There are some technical issues that need to be ironed out and the lack of HD and that's why I can't give an "Excellent" rating.
The original full price of $29.99 I would say is a bit steep for this site given the lack of HD content, but if you can get in for $20 or less I say it's more than worth it.
