It's all B roll!

I rejoined EB as part of a special with Watch4Beauty. The EB site has had a slight freshening, but I'm not terribly impressed with the most recent content. First, it is all "B" roll! It seems as though these are sets of slightly less attractive models or, if mainstream models, slightly lesser quality sets. So they may not have been good enough for the main site, Met Art, when they were taken. Second, it is an odd collection of old and new sets. I recognize several models that retired back around 2008 or earlier and here they are in "new releases" this month with different names and the exact same look. A few models have sets from 2007 and new sets in 2014 and they look exactly the same...because they are old sets just being released now. (To their credit, EB lists the age of the model when the sets were taken, but I don't think those ages are accurate.) That usually only happens because the set was not rated very highly back when the model was popular but now, what the heck, who cares, release it! Fourth, some sets of once popular models might be a bit off because when these sets were taken, these models were very near retirement. There are a few sets where I looked at the model, recognized her and although she was still very attractive, she was several years older than she was at her peak. My typical male reaction was "Wow, what happened? She used to be really hot!" There is nothing that reminds you that YOU are getting old more than images of a favorite model showing that SHE is getting old. Depressing. There are also a few sets from the time before a popular model perfected her look. A lot of eastern European girls took a little time to perfect their looks and some of these sets are the "before" pictures. And lastly, releasing a set in 3 parts is positively annoying. There is no reason for this other than to string us along and get more money. Many Met Art sets have 120-160 images in them. These EB sets usually have 40-60 images spread over 2-3 or more pages of 20 images a page. They either do that to minimize load on their servers, or to make it look like there are more images. Either way, its a really cheap trick!

This site is still better than a lot of others out there, but it is really unfortunate when a good site goes mediocre.

I'm with you on the anal thing. I can't think of her name, but there was a beautiful tall, athletic dark haired eastern European model that appeared on the scene a few years ago. First saw her on Met Art, I think. Then she popped up everywhere and soon had her then perfect boobs enlarged. Next time I saw her (not on Met Art, of course), she's doing anal. All I could think of is "awww". You can't unsee stuff like that.

So...the reason I wrote the survey is to see what people think about seeing certain models EVERYWHERE and their thoughts on models that just don't seem to have the same, um, bounce that they once did. The girl named Malena/Maria seems to be everywhere these days. Caprice and Melissa Mendini are very, very popular models that, although beautiful and versatile, just seem, uh, a little over exposed. Malena Morgan is another very popular bombshell that I have seen in some sets lately where it just doesn't look like she's having any fun. I don't know if they are just crappy sets or what.
I just joined Twisty's for like the 10th time on a bargain sign up. There are a lot of great models there (including 35 sets of Malena, 31 sets of Caprice and 41 sets of Melissa Mendini), but also some older (30+) models and porn stars that I would prefer to think of from...kinder years.
Some models look great forever, some are one-shot wonders (pun intended) and a lot kind of evolve or devolve from the pressures of the business.
In the end, though, there are models we like no matter what, models we don't like very much and a whole lot of models that we will gladly look at until somebody more interesting comes a long.

Eufrat is a great example of somebody who has been modeling for a awhile but still has a great attitude and appearance. Lorena is another really lively one. There will always be great models that will look good well into their thirties or until they retire (Like Marketa Belonoha).

Yes, I had a chance to look through things in more detail and agree that it doesn't seem to be as good as it used to be. The advertising alone seems like it has doubled and I complained about that in 2012. It is funny that you mention score rigging as there are a lot of new , pretty average videos of pretty average girls rated 9.6 or higher, something I've never seen in any site. Now I know why. It is remarkable how many good sites have been destroyed by new owners that are just out to recoup their investment. This is probably one of them. Probably still worth it for $10 once every couple of years or so.

Just foined for $10!

They are running a promo for $10! (watch out for the cross-check) I just re-joined so I haven't seen much, but so far it looks about the same as it did in 2012 with more content. They still don't display sets on one page. Videos are 720p max and images are 3000 across max. Many very (too) familiar models here. Very easy to download zips. A lot of advertising...
For $10 I don't know how you can go wrong! (Read my old review.)

I Just Rejoined under Met Art Umbrella

I wrote a review back in January of last year and am very happy to say the old login/password issue is gone! The photography is even better than it was last year and the collection is simply excellent, among the best soft core on the Internet. Now if only they would update once or more daily....... If you have never been to this site, I highly recommend it!

My level of remorse depends on how much I spend on a site and how it misses the mark. For $10, I'll try anything that looks interesting and won't be too upset if it is not all that was promised. For $20, I'll be a little more critical if it misses the mark. For $30, the site had better perform as good as or better than promised. I generally will not join a site that is more than $30 although there seem to be a growing number of fetish sites out there that exceed that.
Also, I will generally not join a site that doesn't have good reviews here and will brace myself for disappointment if I want to join a site that has no reviews here. Still, once in a while I get taken..or at least feel like I did.
I just remembered...I have experienced remorse a couple of times for reading bad reviews here and joining anyway! Read the reviews!

Oops. Starting writing and the edit timer ran out...

I'm thinking I used to spend about $20-30 a month on magazines and videos back in the...80s, plus an Atlanta, Dallas, Houston or Fort Lauderdale strip club once every couple of months or so. That was maybe 40 images per $5 magazine and one crappy video rental a week. When you consider Moore's rule of technology (doubles every 6 months-2 years), and you throw in inflation, I'd say on-line porn is about the same or slightly better value than porn of prior years.

And although I know where there are some really, really...um...satisfying strip clubs, it is hard to compare that to having a private video chat with any one of about a million girls, some of whom are popular models on your favorite porn sites, with the ability to ask her to do just about anything you can imagine right there in living color...probably for less than you would spend at a strip club.
And if you think that is cool, just wait until you see POV and real-time role-play porn on an Oculus Rift! This technology will blow your everything!

So I guess the value (and budget) is about the same but the technology makes it all much better.

A good value compared to what? Magazines? Old VHS? DVDs? Strip clubs? A date? A girlfriend? A hooker? A wife? (I'm mostly kidding...) :-)

I agree with Pat and RearAdmiral about the volume and variety available on-line being unlike anything else, ever, but I've also experienced what Greymane mentions with rip-off sites. It amazes me that some of these sites can be in business at all.

In the end, you often make a decision based on the sales pitch you are given. Sometimes the result is all that is promised, but often it is not. Thankfully, there is a community here at PU, "The community-based Consumer Reports of porn", that helps us by providing timely and accurate reviews so we know what we are getting into.

OK, I know what you mean, but I really think they have improved a LOT at Femjoy in the last 4 or 5 years. I keep all my images by year (10 years worth for Femjoy) and I just went back and opened some zip files from 2007. They are good, but sometimes these images are a little darker and sometimes the emphasis is on the overall locale with the model included in the image periphery someplace. This was pretty common in softcore several years back and was a technique made popular by Holly Randall and others from the days of Penthouse magazine (the "artsy" dark hazy look, the halo look and the High Dynamic Resolution look sometimes still used by Michael Ninn and others can go straight to hell as far as I'm concerned.) Honestly, a panoramic shot with the model in the image can sometimes be very beautiful, but it does not appeal to everyone, it should be used very sparingly and it distracts from the reason for the set, which is the model. Dark sets do crop up occasionally and I too get very frustrated with them. Fortunately, those sets are very rare. Digital cameras are much better these days, too, so the softness we used to see sometimes is also rare.

One thought....sometimes they mess with the thumbnail image to brighten it up for the text they are adding, not simply to improve the image. This may be why you sometimes see brighter thumbnails.

These days I download and unzip the zip files of entire sets instead of just individual images. I also have a single folder where I keep the very best high-resolution images because of the model, the pose and the image quality, not because of the locale. If an image I want to keep happens to have a little too much space at the bottom or top (often they are formatted portrait but could easily be cropped to be landscape), then I just load up Adobe Photoshop and crop it myself. I just looked at my jumbo best-of collection, about 1000 images, and I've probably cropped 75% of them, but I've only messed with color balance and brightness on about 10% of them. These are the cream of the crop models and images across about 30 sites, but they still required a little cropping to suit my tastes and emphasize the model over the locale. I imagine that may be the case for others as well.

Photographers these days need to be all things to all people. That means they need to do panoramas, full body shots, close ups, hands and feet, face shots, coy shots and open shots, all with both direct eye contact and averted eyes. A little of everything. Amazingly, probably 80% of the Femjoy sets and 60%-80% of the images in those sets for last few years are keepers for me. That may not sound like much, but that is an incredibly high percentage compared to the average soft core site I visit. Of course, your mileage will vary, but I think the photographers at Femjoy do a very, very good overall job these days of keeping their audience happy.

I've been to japan and the things girls do for money in clubs and parlors there are unbelievable. When it comes to fetishes, they might even top the US. I knew a top-tier American stripper who went over there for a year because the money was almost double what she made in the US. Paid for 4 years of college in less than a year! (Somebody paid her $10,000 cash to be a blindfolded, glass topped table for 2 hours including breaks.) I'm guessing this is why a lot of the great oriental porn actresses won't leave Japan to shoot a video without blurring...they probably make more and expose less by staying in the country.

So, yes, the double standard is very frustrating. But there probably isn't much we are going to be able to do about it.

The videos in general are very high quality but there are a few that don't rank up there with the rest. In general the video is MUCH better than your typical hardcore or amateur site.

I think part of the problem is the demand on photographers and models to satisfy different tastes. I happen to like full-body shots where the model is looking at the camera. Not everyone does. I don't like shots of just hands or feet. Many others do. Front, back, top, bottom, close-up, full-body, stand, sit, closed, spread, etc. Just rattling off the different types of shots takes me to about 40 images. So if there is a "formula" checklist of shot types and positions that photographers must follow in order to get top dollar for their sets, it probably automatically includes about 50-60 shots.

Keep in mind also that photographers often hire models by the day and will shoot multiples sets in one venue or in different room in the same rented house or hotel room...or that webmasters often break up photo shoots into multiple sets to save money. And if they happen to have a very popular or very exclusive model, the images get rationed out like diamonds by DeBeers, sometimes appearing years after the model has retired. So for me, it is somewhere between 30 and 100 images. I'll pull the whole set down and cull anything I don't want anyway.

No longer discounted

I have a long term subscription to Met Art and although a few sites in their affiliation group are discounted or sometimes free for trial periods, many of the sites that were once $10 a month to Met-Art members are now full-price. So ED is $29.00 as of the date of this note. That's really too bad as I used to join an extra site in the network every month or so. At $10 or $15, I wouldn't think twice before joining. At $29.00, these sites are competing with literally every other site on the Internet and this network usually loses out on the opportunity to earn my subscription money as I'll chose some other site I have not been a member of before. If anyone finds a discount, publish it here!

This is kind of a funny question because it is probably based on what we WANT to see vs. what we ACTUALLY see. In the US, with our weird views toward nudity, there are very few topless and nude beaches, but no matter where you find them, they are not the eye-candy havens you would think. Most are filled with much older men and women that you don't particularly want to see naked. You just can't un-see some of it. Then there are the gawkers who don't get that nude/topless beaches are not exclusively for the 20-something crowd. The few good looking men and women that do show up at these beaches are often (not always) just exhibitionists looking for a venue. South Beach in Miami is probably the best topless beach in the US and it is a lot of fun to visit, but be prepared to see a few things that will....well...spoil the view.

Absolutely true about the fish eye. What is interesting about this site is that many (not all) of the videos are a mix of go-pro on the head and tripod-over-the-bed-behind-the-guy video. This method avoids the shake-as-you-bang effect. There are also a few seconds here and there where one of the cameras is visible. One of them is a small, decent quality HD video camera with internal stabilization. And there almost always seems to be a 2nd person involved in the shoot in one way or another. So these guys are not out to make cheap videos, they are out to make a lot of money by spreading their collection over as many sites as possible. That strategy will work once their collection is a little larger, but right now it is just frustrating.

No long term discount?

I've recently started subscribing to sites for a year at a time because, after doing the math, I realize I spend that much at my favorite sites anyway and the longer memberships are usually great values. Usually...except...not with nubiles.net. A 1 year membership with Nubiles WITH the PU discount is $209.00!!! $209??? Wow, that is a lot! A regular, undiscounted 1 year membership with Met Art is $99. Femjoy: $99. MC Nudes: $99. Twisty's: $119. Als Scan: $139. There are a couple of sites that charge $150 or so for a 1 year membership, but very, very few that charge $209. Since there is no real incentive for me to sign up for a year (3 months free compared to others 6 months free), I guess I will have to join for a month or two and then quit for awhile like I used to do. Oh well... A pain for me and a loss of revenue for them.

OK, just to clarify, the refund was for a double billing. I paid Rocketgate for the annual subscription and then a few days later, Epoch charged me for the old monthly subscription because they did not get notice of the change. One moral to the story is that if you are going to upgrade, don't wait until a day or two before your original subscription would normally rebill. Give it a little more time than that....maybe a week in advance. You aren't losing anything because the upgrade only kicks in when the old subscription ends.

Top notch customer service

I firmly believe that a web site is only as good as its customer service. Once again this week, Met Art demonstrated that it is an AWESOME web site by providing some of the best online customer service I have ever experienced.

I upgraded my subscription from monthly to annual. My monthly subscription was through Epoch and my annual subscription is now through their new biller(Rocketgate?). What I did not realize is that Epoch had already queued me up for my monthly charge, which I saw on my account a few days after upgrading. I sent an email to Met Art support telling them about the issue. Within a few minutes, here is first class the response I got:

=================

Hi Scott,

My name is amnon and im the CEO of MetArt,

So sorry for your trouble; however rest assured you are in great hands and our support team is looking into this issue ASAP.

we will make you happy.

all the best,

Amnon
===========================
OK, I'm not easily impressed, but here is a guy who truly understands how important it is to be responsive to customers.
So many other websites (adult or otherwise) really don't care when there are problems and some (often adult) are downright obnoxious (Go look at the chain of my MPL Studios comments. I complained about an easily resolvable problem and MPL Studios blamed ME and permanently kicked me off of their site.)

Oh, and yes, I was promptly refunded the Epoch overcharge and received a follow up email from Met Art customer service to ensure everything was OK.

Kudos to Met Art for not only having a terrific web site, but for ensuring that, in the words of the CEO, "I am happy". Yes, I am happy. Thank you very much!

The images are shot in very high resolution so when you blow them up, they are still sharp (unlike some sites that just take smaller pictures and increase their resolution). Many of the images are very sharp, but unfortunately, when you magnify blurry, you get VERY blurry. It all depends on the source image and the focus point that the photographer chooses.

Well....lately I've been trying foreign clubs (russian and latin) and this one popped up on my radar. I noticed that they now have a payment option for ccbill, so apparently they are figuring out that we don't want to be billed directly. I will probably try them within the next month or so and will write a review when I do.

Wow girls vs. 18 only girls

Hey,

I'm looking at the previews to these two sites (wowgirls.com and 18onlygirls.com) and the images and videos are almost exactly the same, but they do not appear to be part of a network. Anyone have any info about that?
