I don't know which site you experienced, but I can tell you for sure that we at FigureBaby pay very close attention to reviews and comments. Porn Users offers us a great service which allows us to gather feedback and communicate directly with our customers, who, after all, pay our bills. I don't always join the conversation personally, but I am aware of what people suggest and request. The downside is that it's easy to rest on ego and anticipate positive reviews, but, while compliments are quite flattering and much appreciated, we could not serve our customers without the complaints. Cons in a review are gold for us because it tells us what we need to fix or improve, and that's what truly makes us better and keeps you happy (I hope). So, that said, keep the suggestions coming! And let me also say thanks to Khan for providing this great resource.

Thanks Kahn!
mbaya, check your email.

gonzooprano, I still shoot film, but don't use much of it on FigureBaby. It's ironic because I'd love to see more sites with content shot on film. Hope to see your work some day!

Hi mbaya! I'm sorry no one has gotten back to you. What email address did you send the message to? We are looking, and are anxious to solve your problem.

New sites might charge more, or follow common practice and charge what the majority charge because it seems like a good place to start. We took a long look at pricing over the Summer and really had to ask why any site is $20-$30, even for the best content and the largest archive. Porn is no longer an insulated entertainment channel. We are competing with all online options for the same amount of consumer cash, and this includes services like Netflix, Gamefly, sports insider sites, gossip sites, pay for content blogs, Groupon, and almost anything else a user could choose to spend their entertainment budget on. Bottom line is monthly site fees average $5-$10, not $20-$30. We adjusted our pricing to match these mainstream options and saw an immediate 500% increase in conversion and retention, and it hasn't stopped improving. In the end, FigureBaby does much better at $6 than it ever did at $18, and that means more profit and more photos and more growth. Hopefully, I, and the other site owners who commented here, can lead the way as advocates for lower prices. It works, it's fair, and we can prove it.

Hi otoh! I can personally recommend FigureBaby as an option. We emphasize personality, and I think you will find alot to like, but I must admit we do not show masturbation or toys, which may fall a little short of your requirements. If you'd like to see that as well, Yanks is a good companion site and you can see many FigureBaby models in photos and videos that are more explicit than you will see on FigureBaby.

Some other sites to check out include Torrid Art, which features photography, FTV Girls or X-ART, which feature both photos and video. ATK, Nubiles and Karups all have what you seek, but they tend to feature 18-24 year old models, and hardcore. The European sites are also good options, and you might want to look at sites like LSG Models, MC-Nudes, or FEMJOY, all of which offer some or all of what you are looking for.

Good luck and I hope this helps!

I'll second the recommendations for OnlyTease and Torrid Art. There are a number of smaller, high quality sites specializing in still images. Be sure to check out sites like David Nudes, Grace and Beauty, X-Art, etc. Also, don't forget the big sites like FEMJOY, LSG, and Hegre, although FEMJOY and Hegre are more all nude than tease. FTV is worth a look, too. They are video heavy, but the photos are gorgeous. And with all that, you can see my work at FigureBaby.com. Good luck!

It's still possible to create unique filenames without compromising server security, but you are more exposed to theft. We create our ZIP filenames dynamically with unique, descriptive, human readable filenames. I realize we make it very easy to pirate our content since it is already prepackaged and labeled, but my concern is for the people who pay me to provide a fabulous, convenient website. We'll find other ways to deal with security and theft. Please don't misunderstand though. Reg makes excellent and correct points about why some would choose to use unfriendly naming. We just take a different approach.

I second the TorridArt recommendation, but also try FigureBaby.com. We're completely softcore, and we share your distaste for adult toys in the picture, although we have been known to play with Legos. We're much more of a boutique site, and we do things a little out of the ordinary, preferring more complete storylines and working more extensively with individual models. This is also true of our friends at ceepink.com, a fairly new site, but one worth a look. If you want something with a broader audience, and a little more standard as far as photography, you should take a look at some of the European sites such as FEMJOY or LSG. And, of course, Met-Art is still the major player in the niche.

Yes, Noname Jane is one of our regular models. She was known as Violet Blue, but there was a legal dispute over the name. Now she's Noname Jane.

FigureBaby.com stopped using regional pricing for the exact same reasons. With our audience mostly in Europe, we felt it hurt us more than it helped.

Nakedby, Skokoff, TorridArt, Pretty4Ever, Stunners, Babelicious, EuropeanGlamourGirls, and even Matts all come to mind (my "soft core" mind, LOL). Every one of those sites has reduced output considerably -- extremely in some cases. Like, Nakedby had only one update last month! Stunners has gone from two galleries per day to one. Matts didn't update between Nov. 9th and Nov. 20th.

Then there are the ones that seem to have thrown in the towel: ClubSilviaSaint (I don't quite buy the official reason for no more updates), BlueFantasies (two updates in October, zero this month), and Denudeart, which has been 404 for a while.

At least some sites seem to stay strong and haven't gone down the "slim pickin's --> fewer subscribers --> slimmer pickin's --> ..." tube.


Some sites are staying strong, but strong as defined by their business plan. FigureBaby is one of them. We continue our regular update schedule only because we planned to be conservative from the start. Sites that didn't over commit or over extend their content are weathering the storm. In the process they can hopefully find interest in their niche as people get bored with the cookie cutter content of the big sites, and start to look for something more interesting and specific. We're doing all right, and lots of others will too.
