Bottom Line: Paul Raymond is a famous UK publisher of 'top shelf' pornographic magazines, including Club, Men Only, Razzle, Mayfair, Mensworld and Escort. These form a vast collection of images that date back to 1971 and feature many models who went on to fame and fortune. All this together in one site sounds great, but in practice it's a woeful attempt.

Users are enticed to "Sign Up Now for Free!" for access to model profiles and "XXX videos and pictures". But on the face of it, a free account doesn't gain access to any real content, clicking on an image or video brings up yet another pay to join page in a classic 'bait and switch' tactic.

Once into the site, content is divided up by magazine with the same user-interface for each. Aside from the magazines, there are sections called Escort DVD, Jo Guest and Full Length Videos. There is no model index, no video index and although new additions are listed chronologically, the small thumbnails are cropped and untitled which makes it impossible to learn anything from them. Although each performer does have their own page accessed via a photo set or video, the content is so poorly organised that it's easy to overlook many elements.

Each photograph is presented in a box within the site's layout, and that restricts its resolution. Although the height varies, no image is wider than 720 pixels, and that's poor to say the least. There are no zip file downloads or any easy way to grab a sequence, so downloading an image set is by design a tedious process. The sets themselves also vary considerably, some have as few as five or six photographs, but in many cases they're much harder than you'd see in a Paul Raymond magazine, one area in which the site does deliver. I was surprised to find some content I'd seen elsewhere, a set from MET Art being one example.

Video quality is equally poor although the content itself is varied and features many classic models in hardcore and lesbian scenes. There are no deliberate video download links and streaming Flash is the only viewing option. Recent additions are 480×320 at ~1,750Kbps, but the majority are a woeful 400Kbps and have jerky, low frame rates, many are even the wrong aspect ratio and have interlacing artefacts.

I cancelled my membership after a short period and my access was revoked, but my card was still debited for the following month and now I'm waiting for a refund. Subscriber beware.

*Newbie reviews and ratings don't count toward a site's overall score/rank until the user reaches the Rookie status level (5 points). This rule is needed to help prevent fake (or heavily biased) profiles and reviews.
