-there are usually 800 to 1200 models online at any given time, and another similar amount offline. There are many, many very attractive girls here! Every body type, nationality, porn niche, and personality type can be found here.
-I hope the site administrators dont get mad at me for saying it, but it is easy to enjoy most of what this site has to offer without spending a dime! You simply go to the site and enter any model's chat room as a guest. You can also register as a "basic" by giving them your contact info (name and email). Guests and basics cannot join group shows or do privates, but many models do strip shows and masturbation shows in their public chat rooms once paying members have tipped the requested amount.
-for paying members a video is made of all private chats you do, and kept indefinitely in your archive
-you can add a large number of models to your favorites list, and get notified by email whenever they log on
-private messaging/emails to models
-MFC is more expensive than most webcam sites ($5 a minute for private chats if you buy 900 tokens at a time). Some models do offline Skpe shows for online tips that work out to a cheaper rate than this.
-one of my biggest gripes is the lack of a user comment section for private chats. You can rate the private, and send a comment to the model, but you can't make a comment that can be read by the general membership. You can leave a comment on her profile page, but the vast majority of those are not comments about private chats.
-As others have noted, you can get addicted to webcam sites, and MFC is no exception. In addition to blowing a lot of money, you can also waste a LOT of time here. If you're low on self discipline, you're probably better off never visiting the site.
-the spot a model gets on the homepage is determined by her cam score (which is essentially based on how much money she makes). At times this seems unfair-maybe they could come up with something different
MFC and Streamate are my two favorite webcam sites, and I meant to write this reveiw right after I did my review of Streamate, but I ran out of time. Both sites have good and bad points.
One thing about MFC that is different from other webcam sites is how the membership interacts with the models. Its a little difficult to explain, but the end result is that you can get to know a model better at MFC than probably any other site. The chat room has a list of all premium and basic members on the right, a chat display in the middle, and the model's video feed on the left. The more popular rooms will often have an active ongoing discussion between the members and model that can include anything as the topic (how her day is going, what type of sex she likes best, etc). If you go into a models chat room on a regular basis, over time you will learn a lot about her. In addition to this, there is a private messaging system, so you can talk one on one with a model if you have anything to discuss with her that you don't want the general membership to see (like what you would like her to do in a private chat). Most models do some type of countdown show, where they will do a strip show and/or masturbate after a certain number of tokens have been tipped by everyone in the room. This usually results in a lot of time for the members to interact with the model. This along with the combination of active public chat and private messaging results in a better interaction with the models than any other webcam site I've been to. Again, its a little hard to explain, but MFC definitely does this well.
A few things are worth noting for new members or persons who have never been to a webcam site before.
First, many models work multiple webcam sites. If you see a girl typing for no apparent reason, she may be interacting on another site. So there will be times when you type a comment in the chat room and the model doesn't immediately respond. It doesn't mean she's being rude. Other sites have their own unique sounds that you may learn to recognize if her sound is on(MFC has a distinctive "chime" sound when the model gets a tip).
Second, video quality will vary with the models equipment. In general, it's still not that good, and no where near true HD quality. MFC did recently add a full screen video option, but if a model is streaming at VGA quality, it will be pixelated. This is one of the more disappointing things about webcam sites, but obviously will get better over time.
Third, there are a lot of European girls here, and not all of them read and speak good English. If you have specific requests for a private chat, make sure she understands what you want before you the click the button.
Fourth, there are a few models on every site who are "time wasters" in their private chats. They will stall for time by typing questions, dancing, and generally not getting naked and doing what you want them to do. When I encounter this, I end the chat very quickly, but not before I let them why.
Finally, you really need to set yourself a monthly budget if you are going to use these sites. It is very easy to blow a lot of money. You have to ask yourself what you are looking for at a webcam site that you can't get from a regular porn site. If you don't have a good answer, then stay away from them if you don't have self discipline. I did what a lot of people probably do, initially spent a lot more money than I should have, before settling down to spending very little.
MFC prides itself on paying the models more than any other webcam site (supposedly 50% of the tips versus 25% to 30% at other sites). That's all fine and good, but I wonder if they do anything to help new models learn the ropes if you will. I've seen quite a few new models who are very attractive and you would think should do well, but they end up doing poorly, having their cam score fall like a rock, and dropping down to page 2, where very few members go (btw check it on a regular basis--there are some really hot girls there too). They may have a FAQ for new models, but I've seen too many new models make common errors that result in their cam score dropping. Things like not showing their face on their video feed, setting a token target for a strip show that is way too high, wearing too much or otherwise not showing enough of their body to get members so horny that they can't resist taking them private, etc. Having just said that, I guess I would be remiss if I didn't call out all of the assinine members who type rude comments, and the never ending crowd of freeloaders who never tip the models. I really feel bad sometimes for some of these girls. They put up with a lot of BS on a daily basis, and everyone's always wanting a free show. So guys, be nice to the girls, and do tip them if you can.
Bottom line, you can have a LOT of fun at MFC (and other webcam sites), but be careful with your wallet.

-Attractive, often gorgeous models, often shot early in their careers. Upscale location(s) for the photo shoots help out too.
-Excellent video quality! The HD videos are really good!
-I really like the pussy close up videos-they are very well done.
-Many of the masturbation videos end with real orgasms and oozing girl cum.
-Most of the models have an interview video that does a good job of letting you get to know them a little better. The models can also post a comment on their experience with FTV after the shoot is done.
-They do have occasional lesbian videos which I think are well done. I really liked Malena Morgan and her gf.
-the photo sets are almost an after-thought, and although they are pretty good in general, the one thing they lack is size (many are only 1500 px on the long dimension). This is probably my biggest gripe, especially since they have so many really hot models.
-site navigation could be improved with a better search engine. Its organized by update date, and you can search models alphabetically. Having said that, from my perspective there really are no search tags that can reliably find models I really like. You never really know until you watch their videos.
-there seems to be just a few main locations that most of the videos are shot, so you will start to recognize them again and again. One place that they use for most of the outdoor shoots is some type of office building--usually there aren't many people around, so it appears they go out there on the weekends. There is also a nice house (mansion really) that they use for the indoor shoots. Still, more variety would be nice.
FTV stands for "first time videos", and while it may not be true for every model that FTV was her first porn shoot, its probably not far off. Many of the girls still have a youthful energy and innocence that you usually don't see in your average experienced porn star.
FTV has been around for quite a while, so there is a lot of content to go through if you are a first time member. It took me 4 months to go through the most recent three years or so. The updates only come once a week (one new model, each with about 9 to 12 videos and 4 or 5 photo sets), so its not a site that I would stay joined to forever. Rather, its the type of site that you go back to once a year or so, after your initial membership.
FTV has a few themes that feature heavily in its videos: public nudity and flashing (usually 2 or 3 of a models vids will include this); masturbating with extremely large dildos, vegetables, and/or hands (fisting); and real masturbation videos that often include extreme pussy close ups. The public nudity and extreme insertions don't really do much for me, but I love their masturbation and pussy close up videos. That along with the model interviews, "freshness" of the models, and excellent video quality are what I really liked about this site.
Bottom line: there is a huge amount of quality content here. Definitely worth joining!

-Models are all gorgeous, young Russian and Eastern European girls
-Technical quality of the photos and videos is excellent!
-Site navigation works well, as with all of the Met-Art administered sites.
-The photography is softcore, with only occasional touching and finger spreading. Having said that, most photo sets do include some explicit close up shots.
-The site preview is very good--you can see short photoset previews of every set from every model, and teasers of all the vids.
-Signing up and canceling are through CC-Bill, and gave me no problems
-The only real con for me is the relative small size of the site. Currently there are 171 models. Likewise, the update frequency averages one photo set or video a day.
-The videos are in Met-Art style, which is to say they are soft-core (no masturbation or sex). This obviously will not appeal to fans of the typical hard-core video site.
Fans of Met-Art will recognize the name Rylsky, as he is one of their more prolific and better photographers. I have always liked his work on Met-Art, and eventually once his site got large enough and had enough sets of my favorite models, I had to join for a month.
While the site is still relatively small, the photography is high quality, and his models are gorgeous! If you are familiar with his work at Met-Art, then you know what to expect. All photosets have zips with 3 different resolutions, and the videos likewise come in several sizes, including 1080p HD. Videos are available for streaming or downloading.
One feature of the site that I appreciate is the comment section. I think Met-Art added this last year to their main site, and now all of the sites they administer have it. Rylsky is one of the few photographers who actually responds to user comments, and listens to their input. For example, in one of the first sets he published on his site that had a model touching her pussy, several members complained. He responded by posting the same set with those photos removed. Similarly, he includes more sets with unshaven models than you will find on Met-Art, as there are lots of member requests for natural girls (just not from me, LOL).
I got a promo price of $19.00 for the site when I joined SexArt, and while some may find this a bit high for a relatively small site, I was certainly happy with my membership. As time goes on, and more models are added, the site will only get better.
Bottom Line - If you like Met-Art style photography and video you will like this site. The preview is very good, so you can see exactly what you are signing up for.

--Lots of beautiful girls in and out of hot bikinis!
--Generally upscale locations for the photo/video shoots
--The video is 720p HD for the last approximately 4 years, and looks great!
--Photos and videos are explicit...nothing left to the imagination, and always have good close ups.
--Some very good masturbation vids can be found here, though not enough with just fingers for me.
--I had no problems with site navigation (it's fairly basic), and I got good download speeds.
--unique file names for both photo zip files and videos that do not require renaming.
--Way too many girls with fake boobs. Also too many with natural Ds for my taste.
--Update frequency is low (13 to 14 updates a month).
--Too many vibrators for me; I prefer to watch a girl masturbate with her fingers.
--Current photo resolution is 2000 pixels on the long dimension, which is a pity because they are very good. Older material is less than that.
--Almost all of the shoots are done at pools. I would love to see more done at nice beaches.
I have always had a thing for hot girls in skimpy bikinis! For me this goes all the way back to junior high when a friend brought his dad's Sport's Illustrated swimsuit issue to school, back to my teenage days at the local pool, spring break craziness in college, and several ex-GFs and my ex-spouse who indulged my love of bikinis.
There are a number of bikini sites out there. I like skimpy bikinis, but not bikinis that leave nothing to the imagination, like the ones that are only strings. I checked out the free tours at several sites, and settled on Bikini Riot.
Right away there were several things that I really liked. First, no pre-checked cross sells when signing up, & they let you choose your username and password. Once into the site, it was easy to get around, and I quickly discovered the good file naming protocol: all zips and vids have a unique name that incorporates the model's name, usually some reference to her bikini, and the resolution (for videos)--no renaming necessary! Little things like this tell me that the site owners care about customer satisfaction.
There are approximately twice the number of videos as photos. Basically each photo shoot has a video shot simultaneously, and then they do a separate video with the girl in the same bikini. In the stand alone video, the girl plays in or around the pool for a little while, strips out of her bikini (sometimes a little too quickly), and then masturbates, usually with a vibrator. I would like to see a little more time with the girl in the bikini, maybe walking along the pool (front and rear views). The photos and videos always incorporate some good close up views--nothing left to the imagination here! Some of the videos of the photo shoot don't really add much, but at other times they provide an interesting behind the scenes perspective.
The videos have been exclusively 720p HD since 2010, and a majority from 2009 are also 720p. The videos look great, and whoever shoots them does a good job balancing whole body and close up shots. Another thing worth noting, the sound quality is excellent, and really gives the ambiance of being right there. Almost all of them are at pools, and they seem to always have some type of blow up plastic raft around.
The photos are very good quality...well focused and with good depth of field, and they use flash to reduce strong shadows (some of the videos do have objectionable shadows, since obviously they don't use flash when shooting a vid). The only downside to the photos is the resolution--only 2000 pixels on the long dimension. I would definitely like to see that between 3000 and 4000.
The models are mostly US girls, and as I noted above, there are way too many fake boobs for me (maybe as many as half). Most of the boob jobs were good as far as that goes (no bad scars, etc), but I strongly prefer natural girls. They also have a lot of girls with natural big boobs, so if you're a big boobs lover, you will really like this site. I would say that many of the models conform to what you would think of when you think about Los Angelos based porn stars--lots of big boobs and good bit of fake blonde hair too. From a facial beauty standpoint, they are all 8s, 9s, and 10s. Quite a few well known US porn stars can be found here. I found at least a dozen of my favorites, and for me, the numerous vids and photos of Carli Banks were almost worth the price of admission alone.
I counted 111 different models on the model page. Most girls have at least 3 or 4 videos and photoshoots. The update frequency is one of the more disappointing things at Bikini Riot...only 13 or 14 updates a month (an update is either a photo or video set). Their material is very good, but this is not enough to keep me around for the long term. I have been busy in the month that I've been there, so I'll probably check in every couple of years or so.
I had no problems with site navigation. They have pages for updates, models, photos, and videos. No search feature, but with only 111 girls, it's not too hard to find what you're looking for. Models use their most common name here-another little plus. I got good download speeds. Not sure if a download manager would work, as I don't use one.
There are two bonus sites, both of which are fairly small. Riot Girls has about 12 models and a total of about 75 sets. These are done indoors, and usually have the girl in lingerie at the beginning, and end with a masturbation scene. Euro Sinsations has about 40 models, most with only 1 video and photo set. There were some navigation issues with that site, and it could use a little work. Overall, the 2 bonus sites add some value, but the main site is really most of what you get.
Bottom Line: Some gorgeous girls in and out of hot bikinis! Great looking HD vids. Too many fake boobs, and a low update frequency were the main cons. Overall though, a high quality site, definitely worth checking out for a month
Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Huge number of attractive models going back over a decade! I think its well over 2000 girls.
Updates include 3 photo sets a day (6 days a week), and 1 or 2 videos a day
Content appears to be exclusive (except for the feeds)
Photos and videos have just the right amount of explicitness for me (meaning pussy close ups and spreads, but nothing extreme like gaping or speculums). No pussy shy girls here!
Photo sets have a good variety of poses-front view, rear view, laying down, doggy
Flash player for videos works well-I can scan through a video very quickly to see if I want to download it.
Zip files for photo sets have unique names--no need to type in a name when downloading.
My biggest gripe is the with the site layout and navigation. There doesn't seem to be a way to list ALL photo sets by date, or all models by date of first appearance. This makes it a little bit of work to view all the new material posted since my last membership there (you have to go through 5 different photo categories to do this).
The solo girl videos (which usually involve a quick strip and masturbation) are kind of hit or miss. Some girls give good performances, others seem a bit apprehensive. I would prefer for the stripping to be slower and more seductive. I don't see a lot of real girl cum here, again suggesting maybe the girls aren't really relaxed.
The camera guys shooting the videos tilt their cameras way too much!
The boy/girl hardcore vids have improved since the last time I was there, but I still rarely find any worth downloading.
The photo/video sets have too many chairs and sofas, and not enough beds. The furniture could be more upscale too.
KarupsPC is primarily a solo girl photo/video site. Each model typically shoots 5 photo sets and 3 videos. The more popular girls have more than this. Some of the models do hardcore B/G videos (most do solo vids only), but recently these have averaged only about 1 a week. For example, in the last 3 months of 2012, there were 117 solo girl videos, 13 B/G hardcore videos, and 2 G/G lesbian videos. The hardcore videos have decreased in number from a couple of years ago (possibly due to the syphillis outbreak and new Russian porn law).
The models are generally attractive, although there are more "7s" and "8s" here than at some other sites like Met-Art and Femjoy. They do have their share of beautiful girls, and it seems like all of the most popular Euro girls have some material here.
The photo sets have zips and come in 3 resolutions: 1024p, 1500p, and 3000p (long dimension pixels). Older sets have only 1024 and 1500. I am not certain, but it appears that some (maybe all) of the photo sets are vid caps from the videos. There are never any flashes going off in the videos, and the photo set that corresponds to the videos doesn't seem to be noticeably different. Again, I am not sure about this. Having said that, the photo sets are well lit and in focus, and generally well done.
I noted above that there are very few if any "pussy shy" girls here. Just the right amount of explicitness for me. Also, some other things that you DON'T find here: pissing, speculums, huge dildos, public nudity, and I don't remember any anal action either (certainly not with dildos). I only found 1 video with "squirting". All of this is fine with me, as I am not into any of the above.
The 50 most recent photo sets and 33 most recent videos are on the home page. The homepage also has 2 buttons for the videos (Hardcore and Softcore). The photosets have 7 buttons/categories, and I really don't know why, as they are so similar. Those categories are Amateurs, Exotics, Girls with Toys, Hardcore, Models, Older Women, and Teens. I wish they would put them all on one main page organized by date, and then have the buttons. The search feature is OK, but needs more categories. It's a little work to get through all their content (of course they have a lot of content!).
The sets for the photos and videos are pretty basic, and as I mentioned above, they have too many chairs and sofas. Sometimes the models just don't look comfortable. They used to have some horrible painted sets with loud colors and painted bricks, but it appears that those are history. A little more variety would be nice. And more beds too.
The videos come in 3 resolutions: mobile, "medium", and HD. The HD is 720p (I don't remember any 1080p), but it still looks very good when full-screened on my 17" laptop monitor (my monitor is 1080p). I'm not sure what resolution the medium vids are, as I only download the HD. The videos come in MP4 and WMV formats. The flash player works very well, and is a big improvement from the last time I was there. The older videos (5 years or so old) are usually in 2 to 4 parts--I remember having to download and join those (ughhh). It would be nice if they could join the older ones for us.
The hardcore B/G videos are not a main feature of this site (at least, the ones done with their models). Apparently some of the members have requested more hardcore, so in response to this, they have several different "feeds". The main hardcore feed has a huge amount of material, but to me it is B and C grade stuff with B and C grade models. It also is not shot in the same style as their hardcore, so I really don't know why they bother. They also have video and photo feeds from Viv Thomas, but the videos are not HD (pity because many of those are good), and the photo sets don't have zips. They also have a webcam feed (which I didn't bother with) and several others including Sex TV, Paradise Feeds, and Whore Hunter. None of the feeds really interested me, and it would be nice if there was an option to join the site without these, as I am sure everyone is paying for them.
The Karups hardcore B/G videos were nothing special for me. In particular, the girls just don't look like they are really enjoying themselves. Another pet peeve, every freaking one that I've seen ends with a facial cumshot. Please Karups, add a little variety here! There has been some change in the videos--most are longer than I remember and less repetitive, but I still don't find many worth downloading. The rare girl/girl videos are better, with some on par with the better lesbian vid sites.
Bottom line: Despite all my nit picking, KarupsPC is a solid solo girl photo/video site. I have been a member there 5 times now in as many years, and always find a lot of good material to download when I go back. A first time member should do the 3 month membership, as 1 month is no way enough time to work through all of their content.

12-30-1203:26am (Update History) Reason: Added important info about the shortcomings of the search engine
Met-Art has a huge number of very attractive models (2700+). A new user could easily spend months going through the entire site. They usually have 4 to 6 updates a day. Excellent photography overall. This is primarily a photo site. They have videos, but they are very soft core. It is also primarily a solo girl site--the occasional "lesbian" sets are really just 2 girls posing together. Another thing worth noting (not necessarily a "pro") is that their Met Live Cams is just their name branded version of Streamate. I don't think there is any advantage to accessing it through their website, and I've only seen one Met-Art model there (Malena Morgan). The main attraction here is the huge volume of quality photos of beautiful naked women.
The videos are way too soft core for my taste. They are really just an extension of the photo sets. There is no masturbation and not enough explicitness in the videos for me. The site seems to have a rule against the models touching themselves, so there is no pussy spreading here. Too many models don't do explicit pussy photos. The 2-girl photo sets are not lesbian photo sets--they are pretend lesbian photo sets. There is rarely any actual kissing, and no pussy play etc. I guess the site has a rule against actual sex. I know thats their niche, but it does get annoying sometimes. Many other sites have shown that it can be done tastefully. Some of the photo sets do suffer from less than top quality lighting (this seems to be an issue with some of the European photogs). A lot of the sets have too many redundant photos--by that I mean photos that are nearly identical. This makes many of the sets unnecessarily large. Some user submitted search tags do not seem to work at all.
Probably the best soft-core porn site out there, with a huge number of very attractive girls, quality photography, and lots of daily updates.
One month is nowhere near enough time to explore all of the content. In fact, narrowing down the 2700+ models to find the ones you like is the most problematical aspect of Met-Art. Their search engine uses 9 standard tags (e.g. hair color, breast size, etc), and this is useful to a degree. They also have user submitted search tags which potentially could be much more useful. For example, you can search using the term "beach". However, many of the user submitted search tags do not return all sets that have that tag. One example is the term "perfect pussy". Its in the 100 most popular user submitted tags, but when you enter it, only 15 sets are found, all of which have the word "perfect" in the name of the set. It would be very useful if they could get that fixed. Bottom line though, this a must join site, even if you only try it for a month.
Update: I contacted Met-Art support about the user submitted search tags not working. The next day I got an email back from them, stating that they had corrected the problem (I checked, and they did), and as a way of thanking me for alerting them to the problem, they gave me a free two week trial to one of their other sites! Sweet!

The video quality is excellent, especially with the newer videos! Models are very attractive and young (18 to 25). Photo sets are very good quality, and do not appear to be vid caps. Site navigation is good. Updates with 2 new models a week on average. The site is a little different than most porn sites. They claim to be the only pussy classification site on the web, which is probably true, although I think maybe there should be more than 3 types (LOL). The 3 categories they have are the "puffy peach" (model has fat labia majoria that hide her clit and labia, and create "pussy cleavage"), the "big taco" (model's clit and labia are visible in a standing pose), and the "juicy cherry" (model's clit and labia are long and hang down). Each model starts out with one video and one or two photo sets. The videos involve a sexy strip and then some pussy play, either with fingers or toys. I had no problem logging into the two bonus sites.
Many models have only one video and one photo set. I don't understand why--maybe they dont book them for a full days shoot. I would definitely like to see more sets of many of their models shot in their style. The videos do seem to get a bit repetitive and similar after a while. It would be nice to see more of the girls masturbating to orgasm. There is a little more pissing than I like--thats not something I'm into.
Excellent video quality with attractive young models. A lot of archived content. Some of the bigger names in Euro porn stars can be found here including the gorgeous Caprice. A few of the things you will find here with regularity are pussy close ups, pussy pumps, camel toe panty play, labia stretching, anal beads used up and down on the pussy, and pissing. A pussy focused site that is pleasantly different from the standard photo/video porn site. That along with the beautiful girls and high video/photo quality make Wet and Puffy definitely worth joining for a month. The free tour is pretty good if you've never been there before.

-there is a large selection of models (100s), with many very attractive girls. Quite a few are unattractive, but you should be able to find dozens that you like.
-models can do "Gold Shows" which are typically priced from $2 to $5 for a show that lasts 5 to 10 minutes. Most girls do a fairly standard routine in their gold shows, but its an inexpensive way to see what they've got, and what they're willing to do.
-private chats here are not as expensive here as some other sites (like MFC or Naked.com). They are typically $3 a minute, and often less. Many of my favorites are $2 a minute. The model sets her prices.
-you can spy on the regular pvt sessions. Once you enter, you'll be charged for a minimum of one minute. But it makes it possible for you to check out the girl's body for a few bucks if she doesn't do gold shows.
-you can click on a button that makes your chat invisible to other users...so only the model sees what you type.
-the model notification thing they have that notifies you when one of your favorites is online has never worked for me.
-the favorites list (where you have your list of favorite models) has also never worked properly for me. I think it allow about 10 to 12 models per page, but when you go to page 2 or 3, often you find models that were on page 1 or 2. When you go back to page 1, it's not the same models listed as when you first opened it.
-some of the European girls struggle with their English, which can cause problems when you are trying to explain to them what you want them to do. Fortunately you can email them on their model page if you need to explain something that might be complicated (saves time in private chat)
-models can permanently ban you, and it has happened to me a couple of times for absolutely no valid reason. Other sites set a 30 or 60 day max ban length. One model I am fairly sure banned me by accident (confused me with another member w/similar name).
I first got into Webcam sites about 2 years ago, and have tried several since (Naked.com, MFC, Streamate, Live Jasmin). Streamate is tied with MFC as my favorites. On Streamate, I usually only do Gold Shows, but if I can find a model that I really like, and her private chats are $2 or $3 a minute, I will occasionally do a private chat.
As others have noted, Webcam sites can be addictive, so you have to be careful. When I first got into them, I checked my credit card statements after the first 5 months, and was shocked when I added it up and had spent over $2000! I looked in my mirror, and said WTF dude, are you crazy? Now fortunately I have a good job, and I do get to work a good bit of overtime, but I decided that it generally wasn't worth it. So I banned myself from the sites, or more specifically from doing private chats. I've fallen off the wagon a few times, but nothing major.
If you're going to use these sites, you have to ask yourself what do you get from them that you can't get from the typical $30 a month video porn site. There is an intriguing element of "reality porn" with these sites, in that you can tell the model exactly what you want her to do. When you add to that the fact that you will find models that are very appealing to you both physically and from a personality standpoint, it is easy to see how it can become addictive. In my case, I love to watch a girl doing a slow strip tease in a fairly specific way, and then masturbating with her fingers until her pussy gets really juicy and she cums. I haven't found a regular porn site that has the models perform exactly how I would if I were the director. So I still do the occasional private chat when I find a girl that I really like.
One tip that I can give to newbies is to make sure you use a video capture program to make your own videos of your private chats. MFC and Live Jasmin are the only 2 sites that I know of that do it for you, and I think it costs extra on LJ. I use Capture Wiz, and have been very happy with it. It has a time counter on it, so you can track your time in the private chat (Streamate does not have a counter for you to monitor).
The private chat rating comment section is very useful here, and you should definitely read a models comments before doing a private chat with her. If a model is a "time-waster" (stalls for time with needless questions or otherwise doesn't listen to you), someone will generally have made a comment about it. I always take the time to leave a comment after a private chat. If you have to leave a bad one, be advised, the model will probably ban you.
The last thing that I should mention is the subject of video quality. This will obviously vary from model to model depending on their video equipment, but none of them on any site will even come close to true 30 frame per second 1080p HD video. I do like some pussy close up time in my private chats, so I usually ask the model to zoom on her face in free chat to see what her cam quality is. Some of the girls only have digital zoom, but a few use camcorders and can zoom right in with very good quality. Ten years from now the "net" will probably easily handle true HD video streaming, and webcam quality will be much better too. It's going to even more addictive! Hopefully I'll be a rich dude by then.

The first thing that struck me about this site when I joined was how gorgeous their models are. You would be hard pressed to find any other site with more attractive models. The site is primarily a photo-set site, although they do have quite a few videos as well. Most of the videos are strip and masturbation, although they do have a few lesbian vids as well. The photo quality is very good to excellent overall, although some of the sets do suffer from less than top notch lighting. If you are a fan of Macy B from Met-Art, I have to point out that this site has her best and most explicit work. She is definitely one of my new favs. I joined with their current (as of Dec 2012) discount of $19.95 a month, which is well worth the price. No problems with site navigation or download speeds. They do not permit multi-threaded downloading, but thats not a problem for me, as I dont need the entire catalog.
A fair number of their models are somewhat shy, and do not do any explicit pussy photos. This applies more to the earlier than the recent models. Another minor quibble is that some of their videos are released in parts, each about 5 to 7 minutes long.
Gorgeous European girls posing nude! Mostly a photo site, but more video as of late. The discount price is a great deal.

--Lots of very beautiful girls here! Updates 5 days a week (one set each day; works out to 260 sets per year, total of about 870 sets at this time).
--Exclusive content as far as I can tell, except for just a few photo sets
--most recent pics are in the 4000 to 6000 pixel range (long dimension of print size sets). There are 2 resolutions (screen size and print size).
--all sets have zips, and I get good download speeds. No excessively large zip files here!
--generally good photography
--first month price is only $4.95 (rebills at 9.95)
--Primarily a photo site (I only found 2 videos)
--The navigation has a number of issues, and could be improved in that regard (see below).
--No search feature or search tags here at all. You have a chronological index and an alphabetical index.
--Too many outdoor sets for my taste. Also, roughly 50% are all nude sets (no clothes to strip out of).
--Occasional photo sets have poor focus (I thought it might be poor quality scanning from slides, but the webmaster told me they are not scans).
--The first 26 galleries from 2009 don't have galleries that can be viewed on the website--they only have zip files to download. Shouldn't be that much work to fix.
--The site is advertised as the more explicit alternative to the parent site (Domai.com), but there are still some sets that aren't very explicit.
I was a member at Domai.com about 4 years ago, and came accross Goddess Nudes recently when searching the model indexes for some of my favorite models. Several of my favs had sets there, and when I saw the price was 4.95 for the first month, it was a no-brainer to join. Goddess Nudes is run by the same guy who operates Domai.com. I remembered Domai as having not very explicit photo sets, that were mostly all nude and mostly outdoors. Goddess Nudes is advertised as a similar site to Domai, but with more explicit photos.
Once I joined, a quick perusal of several photo sets showed that was true, but I have since come accross a number of sets that disappoint me in that regard. My ideal solo girl photo/video site would have a good variety of poses in every photo set, to include several spread leg and pussy close up photos in every one. You get that in some, but not all, of the sets here.
The models here are generally very beautiful eastern European girls in the 18 to 25 age range. There are quite a few that I have not seen anywhere else. There are some popular European models here, but perhaps fewer than at other sites. For some reason very few of these girls are listed at my favorite model index.
I remembered Domai as having almost exclusively outdoor sets, and that appears to be the case here as well. I'd like to see more indoor sets, especially some in nice luxurious beds.
Roughly 50% of the sets here start with the girl having some clothes on (I didn't really do any counts of this, so I may be off a little). The other 50% or so are all nude. There is not much slow seductive stripping, although that is something that is hard to do properly with photo sets (much easier and better with video). Many of the clothed sets start with the girl in bra and panties.
I found some occasional photo sets with poor focus. Most of the newer sets are very good, but overall this site falls short of other top photo sites like Met-Art, Femjoy, and MPL Studios in the quality department.
The site is set up almost identically to Domai, which is to say, it has some navigation issues. When you log into the home page, there are currently about 3 and half months worth of photo sets on the main page (roughly 75 sets). Each set has a large thumbnail on the left side of the browser window. Only the left side of the browser window is used, so the end result is that the page is at least 4 times longer (top to bottom) than it could be if there were 4 thumbnails going accross the page. OK, not such a big deal you might say. But when you click into a photo set, and then back out of it, it takes you back to the top of the home page. You then have to scroll all the way down back to where you were (while trying to not get distracted on the way). This also happens on many (but not all) of the yearly index and alphabetical index pages as well. I know there is a way to code in html that takes you back to where you were on the previous page, but that is not done consistently here.
You might think with 260 photo sets a year, each yearly index page would have links to sub-pages for each month. Nope, you get the same extemely long (top to bottom) page that includes all sets for that year. You might also think once you were in a given photo set, that you could click on a link to show all of that model's photo sets. Nope, you have to go back to home page (which sometimes prompts you to log in again), and get there via the alphabetical index (which again often involves lots of scrolling).
These are not huge issues--you can still find you what need, and with 870 photo sets, the site isn't so large that these issues would be a deal breaker (though I hope Domai isn't still like this). Still, it doesn't seem like it would take that much work to come up with a better design.
All complaining aside, the bottom line is the bottom line. This site only costs $4.95 for the first month, and for me that was a great deal. I got a good number of zip files of some gorgeous girls, including several of my favs. Definitely worth checking out!
--Photosets have zip files, and are small and download fast (usually in seconds).
--One of the biggest problems I had with this site was the generally low resolution of the material, with photos ranging from 900 to 1280 pixels on the long dimension, and as many as one third of the videos below 640 x 480 resolution.
--Many of the photo sets and videos are named using a name that consists only of numbers and letters (e.g. 008ch). To make matters worse, on many of the sites, the models don't even have names. There are no model pages with links to all of a model's sets and videos--you have to find them among the single list of photo sets and/or videos.
--This is archival material that is really starting to show its age (older hairstyles, etc).
--Roughly 50% of the material is non-nude or non-fully-nude.
--The sites have updates, but the total number of photo sets and videos doesn't change, so it certainly appears that they use some type of content rotation system.
As a guy who loves to see a hot girl in a sexy pair of panties, I am often disappointed by the lack of attention paid to them on many standard softcore porn sites. So I decided to look around and join a panty site. I don't really like the British approach to "knickers", so I settled on All Panty Pass.
This is a collection of 15 individual sites, each of which focuses on a different sub-niche of panties. The sites are listed below, each followed by 2 numbers: the first being the number of photo sets they had when I was a member, and the second being the number of videos they had (my membership expired about a month ago).
I'll just cut to the chase and say that the site was really disappointing. This is archival material that is starting to show its age. Overall photo/video resolution is low, the file naming system and lack of model names is ridiculous, and the general quality of the panty content is good but not great.
The first thing I discovered when I entered the site and went to Panty Honeys was that a significant number of videos are low resolution. The first 3 I clicked on were all 320 by 240--so small as to be basically worthless. Just as I was starting to think I had been totally screwed, I clicked on one that was 640 by 480. The resolution of the videos is actually quite variable (Panty Honeys had 10 different resolutions among the 66 videos), both within an individual site, and across sites. The best site for video was Jeans and Panties, where they were all 720p. Most of the sites have some 720p, but the amount varies. The 2 biggest sites (Cute Panty Girls and Panty Honeys) each had a significant number of videos that were below 640 by 480 (20 out 66 on Panty Honeys). The videos are all downloadable with no DRM. The flash player works well and let's you scan through quickly.
The photo sets are the best feature of the sites. They are generally well lit and focused. However, the resolution is low (usually 1280 or 1024 pixels on the long dimension), and many are non-nude. Because of the small size, many zip files are less than 10 MB, and download within seconds.
The weirdest site was the Virtual Panty Girls, which consists of animated photo sets and a few animated videos. It must have taken a lot of time to create this material, but I didn't find it erotic at all.
Navigation is simple, and each of the sites has the same layout. The opening page shows the latest updates and upcoming updates, and has links to pages for all photo sets and all videos. When you go to the photo or video pages, there is a row of thumbnails across the top for individual photo sets or videos (varying from about 5 to 9 thunbnails). There is also a list of number links for the next page of photoset/video thumbnails. Because there are so few thumbnails on each page, there are more pages and clicking than there need to be. Each site also has a link to the main All Panty Pass page, which has links to the individual sites.
As noted above, many of the models are not given a name, and there are no model pages where you can find all of girl's photo sets and videos on each site. This along with the number/letter filenames means that once you've downloaded the material to your hard drive, you really don't know what is what. Forget about a search feature on the sites and network...they don't have one.
About one-third to one-half of the material is non-nude, or non-fully nude. Even though the focus is panties, I do want to see what's underneath, so this was very disappointing.
With the low resolution, aging material, and plain Jane site navigation, the site has the look and feel of a site that is 10 years old. The price was $21 and change for a month, and while I didn't feel screwed, I think they would generate more revenue if they lowered that to $10 or $15 a month.
Bottom Line: There is some content here worth downloading, but the cons outweigh the pros, and I find it difficult to recommend this site.
Glad it worked out Cybertoad! Their site does look amazing, and I'm going to join soon. I wish they had a better preview, with a full model list.
I figured out the problems I was having with ATK Galleria--it was my Kaspersky Antivirus being a total system resource hog, and it's new cloud technology, which means it gives itself priority download access to its cloud files whenever anything is being downloaded from the net. Granted my 2 computers are getting a little long in the tooth, but I've had no issues since I uninstalled it. I was going to slam Galleria for it in my upcoming review, but the problem was definitely my equipment and software.
Cybertoad, do you think it might be your browser, and have tried different ones?
I am having similar problems at ATK Galleria, although in my case it's mainly inconsistent and extremely long download times. Happens with either IE or Chrome for me. And I know it's not my PC because a speed test on my ISP's homepage shows normal download speeds.
I really hope this isn't a real issue with Wow Girls, as they are on my list to join, and from their tour pages, the material looks awesome.
I certainly will continue to contribute reviews, as I find the reviews of others very valuable in deciding whether or not to join a site. I think a smaller raffle prize (like maybe a free month membership at a porn site) would be a cool thing to have.
I just noticed this morning that Met-Art has added yet another new site to their network. This one is called Stunning 18, and features the work of photographer Antonio Clemens. I checked out the tour, and it's pretty small to start off (28 models), but it will most likely update once a day. It's also spicier than Met-Art with finger spreading and a couple of dildos on some of the cover shots. I like Clemens' work, so I will add this one to my list of sites to join. So much porn, so little time!!!
I do love nice lingerie, my favorite items being the basic bra & panties, and sheer body suits. I also like sexy dresses, short shorts and tank tops, and short skirts. Normal clothes are fine if the girl dresses well and a bit sexy.
Settle down everyone! Elmien, it does raise a red flag when 2 members join PU on the same day, and both post favorable reviews of a site within hours of each other. Both reviews were lacking the kind of detail that everyone here has come to expect.
For what it's worth, I was a member at Viv Thomas a few years back, and there were plenty of girl/girl vids with Jo and her playmates. You are correct about her--she truly enjoys other women, and the scenes I have of her and her girlfriends are almost all very hot! But other members here are looking for detail in reviews and maybe comparison to other similar sites. That's what we need to figure out if its a site that we would consider joining.
For example, if you've had memberships at Sapphic Erotica, Euro Girls on Girls, and/or 21st Sextury, how does Jo's site compare? If you could edit your review, and provide that info, it would be a lot more useful.
Met Art just announced yesterday that Watch4Beauty will become part of the Met Art network soon (no date given). They now over 10 sites in their network. It's a great deal for Met-art members cause you can add any of the sites in the network for $10 a month.
Monahan, I was referring to general softcore porn sites like MPL Studios and Femjoy, etc. Bikini Riot is the only bikini site I've joined (I'm not counting Microminimus because its not really a porn site). I searched "beach" at Met-Art, and it returned 346 photosets, which is probably an underestimate because not every beach set gets tagged with beach. ALS Scan and In the Crack also have some good beach scenes, including video.
Hi Cybertoad. I wish they could find a few different beaches to shoot at too. There are a number of sites out there that run $20 a month specials that are probably better than Bikini Riot, which is $25. But the material is exclusive, and the HD looks good. They had enough of my favs there that I wanted to collect the material. For me it was worth it. The free tour model page doesn't show all the models, but I think you can see one or two pics from every update on the free tour Updates page. If they didn't have so many fake boobs I would have considered it a great deal.
