Excellent review. I basically agree with everything you wrote. Except possibly I don't find the cross-selling very annoying, compared to what many other paysites do.
Obviously, I would like to get their entire network for free, after joining any one of the network sites, but we can't have everything.
I think that Metart is the best value in the network.
I even paid for a lifetime membership to Metart. I only wish I had done that from the start, because it would have saved me the monthly and annual memberships to Metart that I have paid for. Except that I think for many years while I was a member, they didn't offer a lifetime membership.
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.
On the other hand, there are so many past and future models, we should still appreciate the content that is available to us.
It seems more and more common that support staff at many businesses are worse than useless.
I bought an item through Amazon. The item was not sold from Amazon, but from one of its commercial partners.
The partner overcharged me about $7 on the item.
I complained to the partner's support staff, in an email.
The first email response I got from the partner support staff said the $7 overcharge was justified, according to their records.
I sent a second email, stating again that I was overcharged $7, and I should get a refund.
The second email from the support staff stated I was not overcharged $7.
I sent a second email, stating that I had been overcharged $7.
The third email from support staff asked me for proof that I had been overcharged.
I sent a new email, with photo copies of the original coupon I used, the original price I should have paid, and a photostat of the charge from my credit card company.
That was proof that I was being overcharged $7.
The next email from support staff said they were sorry I was having a problem, and to please explain what my problem was.
The funny things are: with every email I sent to support staff, I included, in the heading, the ticket code for my complaint.
And I explained, in each email I sent, a summary of my complaint about the overcharge.
As well as sending with each email, the add-on of all previous emails I had sent.
And from the second email on, the support staff member who sent the replying emails was from the same support staff member
Finally, I sent an email to Amazon, with the confirming photos showing I had been overcharged (copy of coupon I used, copy of bill from the partner that shows the overcharge, and copy of my credit card statement that showed the overcharge).
And Amazon gave me a credit for the overcharge.
I've been a member of Metart at different times for the last 10 years or more.
I can't say I've seen every photo set or video they have posted.
But I never came across a peeing scene.
My guess is that the person who told you about the peeing scenes was talking about Grigori Galitsin, who contributed to Metart in its early days.
Galitsin did make some videos featuring peeing, masturbation, lesbian sex, but that content was posted on his own site, not on Metart.
And the Galitsin photo sets that were posted on Metart (which were strictly softcore), were removed from Metart, after Galitsin ran into legal problems with Russia.
Met-Art posted a new video, 2015-03-22, with model Adiba, titled: Viola Bailey.
What's new is this is a solo masturbation video.
A few years ago, Met-Art was strictly soft softcore. A girl would almost never touch herself. Or if there was a two-girl gallery, the two girls might kiss on the lips, but that was usually as far as the overt sex would show.
I'm thinking that Met-Art might show a boy and girl together, in the next few years.
I'm not computer knowledgeable, but 2+ GB for 720p video seems way too large.
The coding formats/algorithms used can make a big difference in the file size.
I'm guessing that those files could be shrunk a lot by better choice of file format/codec/whatever.
Even though hard drive prices keep dropping, 2+ GB files will use up a lot of hard drive storage. And even more so for SSD storage.
Thanks for the kind words.
I reviewed this network a few year ago (2011-12-04), and gave it a score of 91.
I decided to give a score of 95 this time, because they keep adding such fine-looking new models.
Just because a model is beautiful doesn't mean her hard core videos will be great.
But I do enjoy looking at beautiful girls.
I even paid for a life-time membership to Metart (my favorite softcore photo site).
Current Member for over 2 months (at the time of review).
-Recent price (with a PU discount) is $14.95/month.
-Massive amount of hardcore teen videos.
-Easy navigation to the different sites.
-Hot links for each model to the different sites her videos and photo sets appear.
-No download limits.
-Good download speeds. I regularly get 1.10-2.60 Mb/s.
-Download managers work. I use Down Them All (a free program) with this site.
-The recent videos are professionally shot: Good focus, good lighting, good editing, no annoying random sounds.
-A large number of different sites that cater to just about most teen hardcore categories
-You can choose to download the entire video, or you can choose to download the specific clips of that video that you want.
-There is a zip file for each photo set.
-Easy login. A very long time before you are logged out because of inactivity.
-Multiple choices for video download: HD 1080p, HD 720p, SD 540p, LD 405p (for portable devices).
In my estimation: all of the cons are minor, compared to value you are getting at this network.
-Almost all models (females) are Eastern European. That is a minor con. You get a huge number of very attractive to really lovely white
European teens from Russia and surrounding areas. Some people want more variety in the models, age-wise, race-wise, body-wise.
Most of the teens are slender or medium build. I have no problem with that.
-The videos download with a number as the name of the file. It would be better if they named the video in the following format:
name of model_date posted to network_name of site.
-Older videos don't have the higher definition of the videos from the last few years.
There are some lovely models in low-quality videos that would be much more appealing if the video quality was better (higher definition, better lighting, better focus). Since most porn models only last a few years in the business, you're not going to find better videos of these models.
-Some PU members have noted that the network often comes out with new sites for a new niche. And that older sites often stop updating.
This can be frustrating if you really like a particular niche, such as tricky-masseur or old-n-young. But with so many sites offered, they can't keep making content for every niche they have.
-Some of the content is non-exclusive. You can find some of the tricky-masseuse videos at 18 Only Girls (Diesel network) and Rub A Teen
(Team Skeet network), but the videos were posted at Teen Mega World years earlier.
-The watermark for the videos is overly large.
-I would like some personal bio about the models. Age, height, weight, country, maybe a brief interview of the model, what she likes.
Porn is fantasy. A bio, although probably fake, still creates a link that makes the model seem more real.
Network stats (as of Mar 12, 2015):
Total Number Of Sites: 28
The network goes for a natural style: the girls use very little make-up, very little airbrushing.
One major positive: the site/network is continually working to improve itself.
I don't mean that major changes are happening each month.
But over the years, the network has become much more user friendly.
1. They put in an excellent model directory, which gives hot links to all the content the model has on the different sites.
There is a good thumbnail of the model to show what she looks like.
2. Switching between sites in the network is fairly easy. That was an upgrade done several years ago. You don't have to re-enter your
username and password to switch sites.
3. The update schedule is excellent. One new photoset or (matching) video each day.
4. The quality of the photo sets has improved over the years. The individual photos in a photo set used to be much more like screenshots. But they are improving the quality of each photo, by better framing, whatever. The photos are several grades below a photo site like Met-art or MPL Studios. But some of the recent photo sets, because of how attractive the individual model can be, are finally worth collecting.
Maybe I am being too subjective in my review. But when I compare Teen Mega World to other bread and butter (not high class glamcore) mega sites, I think Teen Mega World deserves a higher score.
1. Naughty America just has too many videos that I don't enjoy wading through to find the ones I do enjoy.
2. netFameSolutions (Devils Film network) also has too many videos I don't enjoy, which makes it harder to find the vids I do enjoy.
But netFameSolutions has some truly hot videos.
3. 21Sextury used to be a great network, but the quality of the content, and the site navigation issues, have lowered the network's value.
X-Art and some of the heart-core sites give you a more erotic style, high-quality video.
But for bread and butter teen hardcore videos: because of the massive amount of content, the wide variety of niches, the large (and
continually increasing) number of attractive to lovely young girls, and the low price, this is one of the best values for teen hard core videos.
I've had monthly subs, and yearly subs, to this network.
People often say you get what you pay for.
But with TMW, you get a huge amount of high-quality videos for a very low price.
I also got some "free offers" to join Femjoy by paying $30 to join Femjoy and Nubiles.
That's the beauty of advertising: Create words to describe things in the best, most attractive way. Forget logic and common sense... For $30, you get Femjoy and Nubiles, which is the the list price of Nubiles by itself, so you are getting Femjoy for "free".
Anyway, this morning, I got a Christmas special email offer to join Femjoy for $14.95 for 1 month.
Occasionally, Met-Art deletes the photo sets of some models.
I assume this is probably done at the request of the model.
But I found that one photo set of the model named Anita C at Met-Art has been deleted.
The photo set is named "Chariye", originally posted 2014-04-26.
Anita C has plenty of other sets at Met-Art (and Femjoy and MPL Studios and many other sites), so I don't know what the reason would be for deleting this particular set.
I use Down Them All, a free program, that works well at most paysites I've joined. Including Metart. I've set up queues with 6 or more links, and can't recall any problems with the download at Metart (or most other paysites I've joined).
Try Down Them All, a free, easy to use program, and report your results.
Really pays to read the fine print.
$US99.95 every 30 days after the initial period!
Either that is a mis-print (pricing error), or a scam to trap the unwary.
I wonder how many people will be caught by this?
I've always thought Hegre was a major site, ethical.
If I was stupid enough to pay S99.95/month on re-bills, I'd never join this site again.
This doesn't apply only to Devils Film, but to the Fame group network/family.
When you cancel your membership online, you are using a non-secure connection.
They ask you to enter the following information:
Site (You joined through)
I think this is poor practice.
Not only are you sending your username and password and email through a non-secure connection (no https in the URL), but I would assume that any professional hacker could easily capture that information.
I do not understand why they use a non-secure connection when requesting private data.
Cross sells are ok if unchecked, but most cross sells that I've seen are still checked, as the default option.
I think I only got caught once with a pre-checked cross sell. I immediately (within 5 minutes or less) called the billing company, but they would not reverse the charge.
So I spend a lot of time whenever I sign on to a new site, looking for the cross sell. Sometimes they are hard to find.
