I have a large house with 6 wireless access points and 3 SSIDs including a guest network for my kids friends to use. It is all tied to gigabit Ethernet run into most rooms (I still prefer wired connections when possible). I have a dedicated Windows server for audio, video and Tivo file storage (about 16 Terabytes now)in an A/V closet that includes whole-house audio and a managed Cisco gigabit switch with POE. I just checked and there are 28 DHCP lease connections including A/V components (stereos, Blu-ray players, TVs and 3 Tivos), 4 game consoles, 4 iPhones, 3 iPads, a Nook and 7 computers....all connected through a Docsis 3 router to one really shitty Comcast cable connection. I guess that would make me a computer nerd. When I load Net-stumbler onto one of my laptops, I can see 18 different wireless networks from my bedroom and I live on a pretty big piece of land. Apparently, I am surrounded by nerds, too. If you live in an apartment, grab a copy of net-stumbler so you can identify the least used wireless channels and reduce interference from your neighbors.
Free sites provide an opportunity to see new things that you would not ordinarily see in your proverbial back yard. The new higher end sites like Watch 4 Beauty post on the free sites and draw a lot of customers that way. Now days the POV sites are the big deal. I will also sometimes scan free sites for interesting models, then go to one of the porn wiki sites to find out where the model is. Found some interesting sites that way.
A few of my favorite models are total stunners but have tiny scars in one place or another (i.e. leg or knee). By looking for and finding the scars, I can tell whether the images are PhotoShopped. Same with moles. No moles at all? Probably shopped.
Wow. Porn destroys a lot of beautiful women but some are just amazing for a decade or more. This may also depend on the intensity of the activity. Some exceptional European photo models are still going strong after 10+ years, but they just do photos and solo videos. Personality has so much to do with it. Smart, interesting ones that control their careers can go the distance.
Hey RustyJ, I think you hit the nail on the head with the feel in House of Taboo. It is glam bondage. There is a lot of make-up and nice fetish clothing but no real roughness at all. (Straight peeing should not be in this category these days.) But here's the deal. Even with light bondage, the model needs to be tied up well or tied firmly to something. Bondage is about trust, after all and faking bondage destroys the trust concept. When I look at the images here, many, many of them show a girl in handcuffs that aren't clasped or a girl tied in a way that she can clearly slip her hands or legs out of. And seeing a girl that is tied up suddenly slip free and masturbate SO defeats the purpose of the set. Yes, Kink.com is pretty brutal and the models are usually not glamorous, but there are other sites that strike a MUCH better balance between fake glam and "OMG she's tied down tight to that machine and has come so many times she's drooling uncontrollably" bondage. I'm not a huge Hustler fan, but the Hustler Taboo site does glam bondage pretty well. Check it out if you haven't already.
Watching American porn where the girls talk (as in, talk at YOU) in English is great, but many American models are...um...too enhanced. The volume of young, fresh, natural interesting European models is just amazing. One category you missed is Brazilian. Holy shit some of those women are unbelievable...even with the enhancements.
I have three that I now buy annual subscriptions to...no brainer when they go on sale for, like, $89.00 a year (that's three months if buying monthly). Then I buy monthly subscriptions when I see something interesting, so I probably have 4-5 at a time.
I have several home-built computers and keep them for 5+ years but do incremental upgrades between major overhauls. I bought the fastest AMD CPU made about 2 years ago and it is still up there, so I recently upgraded the motherboard (new chipset), memory and installed 2 SSD drives...one for the OS and one for cache. The thing boots up in 7 seconds and pegs the top of the Microsoft Experience index (for what that is worth) at 7.9 in every category. The biggest bang for the buck speed-wise these days is in Solid State drives. Just upgrade your drive. Seriously. Do it.
The problem with the 3D technology sites use today is that it is old tech, as in red-blue tech. I have not seen any decent polarized (modern TV) 3D porn yet. Making polarized 3D look real takes a LOT of processing power when rendering (creating) and a decent amount when displaying. I'm not sure the industry can afford it.
A lot of sites don't really separate video from photo updates, so it is really by the image or thumbnail. It also depends a lot on what I'm in the mood for. Some sites are predominantly video so I will browse until I find a model I like and then browse for more of her. Bottom line though, it is the thumbnail that decides if I click to watch the video. There has to be something really appealing in that thumbnail for me to click on it.
It's all about the package. There needs to be beauty, some softness and some firmness. ...and absolutely no hard steroid face. Huge muscles on a girl? Pass. Ballet dancer body? Yes, please. Flexibility turns me on, too. There are a couple of girls on Met Art that are athletic and flexible but not too muscular.

The regular price is insanely expensive.
I've been around long enough to remember when DDF was owned by Dennis De Franco, a European photographer who shot for magazines and made Sandy famous. His work was simply spectacular. That was nearly 20 years ago. Since then, DDF has gone from his name, to DDF productions to DDF network. Dennis has either sold the site or no longer has very much to do with it. That's a shame because whoever runs things now is trying to be all things to all potential customers.
The site feels a lot like Twisty's or the long gone Danni's Hard Drive. The collection is huge but the girls are...let's just say many of them have moved a little too far down the porn star path to be really attractive. There are a LOT of enhancements, tons of porn moans and the percentage of anal is far above my threshold of tolerance. (Why so many beautiful or once beautiful girls subject themselves to anal is completely beyond me. And what is with all the gaping asses? If you are into anal and gaping asses, sign up now! You won't be disappointed!)
But I digress, let me tell you a bit more about the sites:
"1 by day" is one of the original sites that provides one video/photo set a day. You know many of these models, but it could be from years ago. Zafira (current), Peaches (last set in 2008) and Eufrat (2013) are among the most popular. Almost every set starts with the girl clothed, then a strip, then maybe a few straight nude shots, then come the fingers and toys. Lots and lots of toys. (If you like toys, then sign up now!) Many of the newer sets look truly new and are of girls I have not seen before. But the formula is generally the same with every set including (simulated moaning) masturbation or insertion. The oldest sets in 1 by day go back to 2001 and the old ones look almost exactly like the new ones except there are no anal shots and not as much insertion in the older sets. With 15 years of sets, you WILL get lost in here if you aren't careful. DDF Busty is a site full of...huge, huge boobs! These are mostly double-Fs at least. Some look pretty good but many are clearly not well done and a lot of the girls have the full figure to support that mass up front. This is more of a full porn site with sex, fisting, blow-jobs and boob sex, with the obvious feature up front. If you are into truly ginormous boobs, you will get your fill of them here. DDF Busty goes back to about 2005 with a set every two or three days for that entire time.
Hands on hard core is pretty much as it sounds. These sets go back to 2003 with SV videos and images in each older set. I can't quite tell when these went HD but I see some 720 as far back as 2005. This is the site that is...um...filled with anal and there is some double penetration and multi-way stuff as well. Hot Legs and Feet is a fetish site for stockings, shoes and feet. Most of the sets are regular porn with the camera or video emphasizing the feet. Lots of shoe heel insertions... If you are into that stuff, the sets are not bad. The sets go all the way back to 2001 with a few sets a week for that entire time but there are a lot of duplicates to the other sites.
One other site I want to mention is House of Taboo. This is supposed to be a B&D and kink site but if you have ever seen any of the better commercial sites of that genre, you will be pretty disappointed here. Maybe 1 scene in 15 looks even remotely genuine. There are some pee scenes if you are into that, though.
There are several other much smaller sites including "only blowjobs", "Euro Girls on Girls", "Euro Teen Erotica"(6 sets with Anjelica here), "Hairy Twatter" and "Sex Video Casting" which is a collection of casting videos. There are also a handful of one-girl sites like Sandy and Cherry Jul.
So, the bottom line is that there is a LOT of stuff here and there are micro-sites that look like they fill most niches. The quality is decent, the models are mostly popular porn stars and the navigation is consistent and fairly intuitive. But the problem is that they try to fill so many niches that the site doesn't really excel at any of them. I'm not really into hairy twats, feet, peeing, fake bondage, watching blowjobs, fake orgasm moans, bolt-on F-cups, massive insertions, double penetration, anal or gaping. So the sites that feature those things are not something I want to pay for. Fortunately, there is a reasonable amount of good quality solo and straight material spanning a decade and a half. is it worth the $44 or so regular rate? Well, sorry, no. I waited and finally got an intro deal for $25. If you see it for $29.95, go ahead and try it.
If you are into a wide variety of different niches I mention above, sign up now. If you aren't into some of those things, look around for discounts and sign up when you find one. But if you are into any of these niches exclusively, you should probably sign up for one of the many other niche sites out there.
So I'm back. Go to the site through PU and the monthly price is now $38.95!!!! I open Chrome and go direct to the site and get a $29.95 option. I tried to purchase that repeatedly but the option will not load the Epoch pay site (the $99 annual option will, though.) (Yes, I cleared the cache, etc.) Tried Mozilla and it is $38.95. Three months in a row I've tried to join this site. Three months in a row I've gotten something that bothers me enough to pass. Off to Joymii, I guess!
So I am sitting here looking for another site to join and again came back to DDF. This time, when I followed the link from PU, the sign up link only shows 2 options. Sign up for 3-MONTHS at $89.99 or sign up for a year at $99.99. Wow, that is just ballsy. On a whim, I went direct to the site in another browser and there is a one month sign-up for $29.95 but it renews at $44.95! So they are randomly changing their pricing and options and might even be thumbing their noses at PU. I'm going to pass...again...
Well, I just tried to sign up and see two things that are a little frustrating.
First, the discounted price is up to $33.95. That is not a cache or related issue but is a revised discount from their new regular price of $44.95 a month. Wow...that has to be the most expensive monthly porn site price I have ever seen. Good luck with that.
And perhaps more annoying is that when I first went to the discounted sign-up page, I entered my site-unique username and password for this site into the form. Then I saw that the credit card handler is somebody I haven't heard of before (DDFsupport), NOT one of the ones listed on the charge page (like ccbill), so I backed out. After a few minutes, I decided to sign up anyway and came back to the sign up page. This time, the site said my username was already in use....because I typed it in 5 minutes earlier! This was unfortunate and was enough to make me decide to spend my money elsewhere. I hate getting jerked around before I even sign up for a site. Sorry, DDF, FTVgrls.com (and ccbill) gets my money today.

Only one thing in the CON category:
Too much cross-selling to the other sites in the network.
I noticed there were no current reviews of this site so I thought I would write an update to a review I wrote two years ago.
I've been a member of this site off and on for over a decade now and am a loyal, permanent customer. It is without a doubt one of the best softcore sites on the internet. The models are spectacular, the sets are great, the clothing, hair and make-up are usually perfect, the variety is great and the girls generally look like they are having a good time. Nothing cheap or poorly done anywhere, period.
Navigation is also very good and the way the site opens tabs for sets and individual images is the best I've seen. I've actually used this site as a reference to other webmasters with sites that have mediocre navigation.
There are several exclusive or nearly exclusive models on this site that words cannot describe. Many are well known European models but many are women you've never seen before but will want to see again and again. The girls are almost entirely all natural. The images you see on the main page and tour are perfectly representative of the images in the site as are the scores of the models (over 150 legitimate 9+ models).
To be clear here, this is a SOFTCORE site. If you enjoy looking at incredibly beautiful naked women positioned in ways that tastefully show off their assets, this is a great site for you. The site is mostly solo sets with a few two-girl sets and an occasional masturbation set. Sexy, but no sex. If you are looking for hardcore, insertions or kink of any kind, you will need to look elsewhere. Pretty much the only gaping here will be your mouth just before you say "Oh my fucking god this girl is beautiful"....and you will say that a lot!
There is really only one negative that I'm going to mention here and it is more of a customer service thing than a fault with the site. Met Art is part of a pretty big network which includes Sex Art, the Life Erotic, Errotica Archives, Erotic Beauty and a few others. Unlike many other networks, you have to join each of these sites separately. OK, I can appreciate that the individual owners want to maximize revenue. What I find a little annoying is that in Met-Art, when you look at a set of a model, a section sometimes appears at the bottom of the set that says something like "more of this model:' with a bunch of images that are links. Well, although there may be more of this model on Met-Art, the links are NOT WITHIN THE MET ART SITE. They are links to offers to join one of the other sites in the network where more images of this model exist. Since I first mentioned this a few years ago, I have seen a few other networks that do it but some of those are all inclusive networks with free access to the other sites. There is always a link on the top of each page that will get you to the models "profile card" within Met-Art (just click on the model's name), so after a while you will learn to ignore these links at the bottom.
Now, in-spite of that cross-selling tactic, the guys at Met-Art are gracious enough to discount the other sites once you join Met-Art, sometimes providing significant discounts, as low as $5-10 for a month for each site. To be fair, these sites have their own flavor and plenty of unique sets. And pretty much every site on the network is the same or nearly the same quality as Met-Art, although some of these other sites are considerably smaller.
Oh, and here's an interesting one. They have a cam site called MetCams.com. I do not partake in cam sites very often but browsing this one brings up several of the top models that are showcased on the Met-Art site. A few years ago I, um, came across Mila I., one of my all time favorite Met-art models, on the cam site and I could not resist. She did not disappoint, I was completely satisfied and I have a memory that (oddly, I admit) rivals a few from high-school. Clearly, the cam site is not soft-core....
I also want to say that the customer service for Met-Art and their network is simply outstanding. They are very responsive and have cleared up billing and other questions/issues immediately whenever I have had to contact them.
So...if you have not yet been to this site and want some seriously great softcore imagery and video to add to your collection, Met-Art is a MUST. I have an annual membership and have joined nearly every one of the other sites in the network for at least a month. This site and every other site on the network is totally, completely worth subscribing to.
I took them up on the Nubile-films and Joymii 2-for-1 offer. It was a great deal. I also saw a Femjoy $14.95 for a month offer but apparently it was only valid for a few days and I missed it. Make sure to sign up to their newsletters so you don't get left out of the deals!
