Images4sale has some unique content not seen anywhere else. You can choose to purchase only the shoots that you want. Some companies keep their images4sale.com stores open after they close their paysites, so you can find some rare content if you are willing to pay. There are also a number of amateurs who post here, and it's often, but not always, a cut above the free amateur pics online. The quality of the content is whatever the store owner chooses to upload.
-300 independent image stores
-likely millions of photos but unable to know exactly
-support is responsive and helpful
-resolution up to 3000x2000 seen
-can preview sets with thumbnails and 1 full sized iamges
Images4sale.com does not present a value proposition that generates interest for most customers. Charging $3-10 per photo set is a bit expensive for most tastes.
-prices too high
-resolutions as low as 320x480
-many files cannot be downloaded after purchase
Images4sale.com is the little brother of clips4sale.com. Unfortunately, while C4S has taken off, I4S has been left behind. It's not that they don't have tons of content. You can search your favorite niche on I4S, and you will find dozens of studios selling photo sets. It is very much a backwater of the porn world though. It doesn't exactly get a lot of conversions. For example, I purchased a photo set a few days ago, and it was the only sale the studio had made since it's creation in 2007. You can tell if this is the case because each studio lists it's top selling photo sets. If nothing is listed, they have never made a sale. I actually cannot count the studios where my purchases were the only sales ever logged. I talked with an I4S studio owner the other day who confirmed this, that I was the only one who ever bought anything from her studio. I like digging deep for rare porn, so there is something oddly satisfying about this. To see a nice looking shoot online, and think of the effort that went into producing it, and realize that no one has ever purchased it, no one has probably seen it besides the producers, and then to buy it and be the first and maybe only customer to lay eyes on it - there is something very satisfying about that, and it is worth $5 to me. This is the appeal of I4S. You can go way off the beaten track and be the first or even only customer to see the shoots of your choosing. Considering that each shoot would take hundreds of dollars for you to produce, this is a good deal.
Unfortunately, there is a major problem with I4S. Upon purchasing and being billed for a photo set, you may find that it no longer exists on their server. This problem seems to affect about 20% of their photo sets. Support will respond promptly and offer to substitute another photo set, but still, this is a big problem. I had other photo sets that I wanted, so I took the substitution, but I can't imagine that they wouldn't give your money back if you pushed for it. You would be justified in initiating a chargeback if they didn't, and you could get it back, so don't let this drive you away, but be aware that the shoots that you want may actually be gone.
It is not clear why shoots have gone down like this in such large numbers. In the first case I came across, support said that it was deleted by the studio owner. I got a hold of the owner though, and she did not delete anything, and she is going to search her old hard drives for the content. I suspect that I4S knows more than they let on. The damage is widespread enough that I would guess it was probably a server failure on their end, and they haven't been able to go back and take down the affected sets from the preview/purchase pages.
They also lose points in my book for taking down their person to person peeing content. I have still been able to purchase some directly from the owners though through channels outside of I4S/C4S ;-).
Finally, it is an interesting sign of the times to compare C4S and I4S. Both charge about $3-10 per purchase, which is either a single photo set or a single video. C4S has been a raging success during these trying times for the industry, while stores that have made more than 4 sales on I4S are the exception not the rule. I guess it really is true, unfortunately, that most people just value photos a lot less than videos.
I still look at $5 for a photo set as a good value for me, even though I realize that it is not a good value for the vast majority of people. Like I said before, to book a model for a shoot and do it yourself would be hundreds of dollars, so this is still a great deal to me. I never thought I would make it though the content at such an expensive site, but I have finally done it. I looked over all of their peeing content, and downloaded about half of it, the best half. I skipped over models who didn't show their face, extremely poor resolution, amateur models in very bad shape, and content that I already had from other sites. I can't recommend doing that for most people, but just try this - look up your favorite niche, browse through the studios, find something totally obscure but appealing and download it - you may be the first one to ever do it!

18Magazine.com is a network that includes content not only from 18Magazine but also from 66 other websites. This is not just one site's worth of content that has been broken down into many sites, these are truly distinct sites capable of standing alone. Some definitely originated independent of 18Magazine.com and were brought in after closing.
-66 sites worth of content
-1024x768 resolution is not bad for older content
-weekly updates on main site 18Magazine
-mostly softcore, but some bg, gg, and peeing
-beautiful natural amateur models
You can't join an old site like this expecting it to match up to the best of today. 2005 seems to be the year in which most of their content was produced. This is great if you are a bit nostalgic, and if you are into photos because resolution was decent then, but the videos are lacking. I would not join this site if you are purely a video collector, unless you have a real reason to want these videos.
-most are circa 2005 and 480x324
-newest videos are 736x540
-18Magazine is the only site of the 66 included in the membership that is still updating
This site has been around long enough, I think it is time that it got a review. It includes quite an extensive network of sites, and it would be exhaustive to cover them all. I joined 18Magazine.com specifically for one of the legacy sites in it's network, CrimsonTeens.com, so my experience centers on this. CrimsonTeens.com is a little known site. It was online from 2005-2008. Luckily it's content was brought into 18Magazine.com so we can still enjoy it today. It features many of the things that the more nostalgic fans of softcore porn crave including natural women in elegant settings. The scenes start out with the women dressed in either something appealing and classy or in lingeree, and they slowly strip down, not going too fast, but getting naked about half way through the shoots. They are basically a softcore site, but they go one step further and do a number of great peeing scenes too. They bring the same touch of style to their peeing shoots too, and to top it off, the models always seem to be peeing into crystal glasses or fine china. That's a touch you actually don't see too often, but I like it a lot.
The bottom line is, if you love softcore photography, or classy peeing, then check out CrimsonTeens on 18Magazine.com. Then spend some time on the rest of the site, it is extensive.
There may be a small niche for smart sex toys though, and that raises the question of what really is a robot. Vibrators are one thing, but imagine how women would like a vibrator that is also an autonomous pleasure machine capable of learning and adaptation. Just a thought.
"I can be mildly disappointed when I find that some content from the site was removed. It's hard to determine if the removal was done at the request of the model, If done at the model's request, that shows a respect for the model."
Most of the time you don't know, and model's request is far from the most common reason. I can think of a few sites that have told me they did this at their request though. AbbyWinters.com is one well known example, where models can buy back their shoots if they want them down. It does show respect for the models, in keeping with the AW brand of being a model friendly site. I guess I can't blame them for it.
Then again, there are massive sites like 21sextury.com that have never taken anything down, despite certainly having received requests, and I can say I am definitely glad they have kept it all.
"On the other hand, there are so many past and future models, we should still appreciate the content that is available to us."
So true. Enough cannot be said for the models and producers still creating and distributing great content.
You may be right. Someone posted elsewhere that they thought they remembered some of Galitsin's peeing shoots being posted on Metart, but they weren't sure because it was a long time ago. You seem to remember it clearly, so I will take your word for it.
Okay, so I heard back from the owner in this case, and they think it was an error on the C4S server, because they did not want to take that clip down. They're going to try to get me a copy, which is great.
Back to the original topic of the poll, I think it detracts from the entire site when you remove content, even if it's just a handful of models. Joining a site only to find content missing is like buying a book and finding that certain pages are gone.
Something like this just happened to me the other day, although I'm not sure if it was at the model's request or not. I purchased a number of clips from a clips4sale.com store. They all downloaded fine except for one. So I contacted C4S support, and they told me the clip had been deleted by the store owner. I went back to check the store, and sure enough, the clip was no longer listed.
I could not believe it that in the seconds between me paying for a clip and downloading it, the store owner deleted it. I emailed them about it, and I'll let you know if I get a reply.
Many people unfortunately don't pay for their porn. Of the minority that pay for it, fewer still go one step further after getting their fix and actually review it online. I think we're in the minority.
By the way I was going to PM you this question, but even though you have PM's enabled, the link to PM you is not working for some reason. Please PM me the full details, I am curious, or post here if you want to.
It's kind of crazy that almost 3 years have gone by since PSP closed, and people still haven't let it go. Brazzers must have thought it would be quietly swept under the rug after a while, because there is no way they could have predicted such a strong and ongoing response from their customers. Taking it down just gave it notoriety. It's ironic that PSP is now by far the single most powerful brand name among the Brazzers sites, and yet it is the only one that no longer exists.
You may be surprised, but my answer is no to new fetishes. I've had my fetish for my entire life, long before I ever saw porn.
As I read this question more, it is difficult to answer because fetishes are very different from interests. Sure, I've developed new interests from watching porn.
Have I talked with people who discovered a pee fetish through porn? Sure. But in my case, I didn't have to be exposed to it, it was just the way I was. Most guys got turned on by tits and pussy. I got turned on by tits, pussy, and women's piss.
Almost no kinky stuff as you said, but there is the rare gem. I'm a member at this site right now, I'm about a quarter way through their videos, and I've seen three where they get the model to pee for the camera so far.
I've come across the best in tech support, the worst, and everything in between. You can't expect much from half the sites out there, the rest will usually try to help, and some rare sites will really go the extra mile.
