Whenever I log into the site, I have to first give a captcha number through the Diesel Access page. But the first number I give always returns an error message, stating that either the captcha was wrong, or that my browser does not accept cookies.
The second time I enter a different captcha number, the captcha entry is accepted, and I am able to log in.
No big thing. But I wish they dropped the captcha entirely.
1. MET-Art (originally Most Erotic Teens) is a softcore pornography website owned by HLP General Partners Incorporated of Santa Monica, California. The site features erotic photographs of partially or completely naked women, and has been online since circa 1999.
2. Not to be confused with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
But much easier to visit than the New York City museum. And the price to visit the online site is much cheaper.
3. Headquarters: Santa Monica, California
Parent HLP General Partners, INC
It surprises me that the headquarters are in Santa Monica, California.
Almost all the models used in the early years of Met-Art were Eastern European girls.
And the photographers were mainly from Europe, as well.
Most of the models are still from Eastern Europe.
And most of the photographers are still from Europe.
What I want to really know:
If I drive down to Santa Monica, California, how many of the Met-Art girls will I be able to meet?
My guess is: Zero to none, since the site uses very few models from the United States, and almost all the photoshoots are done in Europe.
Can anyone explain to me the benefit of having a headquarters in Santa Monica, California? Versus some place in Europe. I can understand not locating in Russia or some area around there, because the authorities might turn against porn and shut the operation down or force it to move. The same thing happened with Abby Winters in Australia, I think, which is why Abby Winters moved from Australia to Europe.
When you download a photoset of a model, it includes a small bio sheet for the model.
The model sheet includes:
And maybe a few small details about what the model likes or is doing.
The age of the model refers to the age she was at the time the photoset was posted to the site. (I believe that's what it's supposed to refer to. Less probable, it was the age the model was at the time of the photo shoot.)
Anyway, the computer program that is responsible for printing out the bio sheet has been, in error, I believe, now set up to print the age the model is currently.
On the Metart site, there is a bio section for each model, and that section gives the current age of the model.
But the downloaded bio sheet, that comes with a specific photoset, is supposed to give the age of the model at the time the photoset was posted to the site.
Instead, it now gives the current age of the model.
Met-Art is probably the biggest site for softcore teen photography, based on content.
And the site just keeps getting bigger. They add up to 6 photosets and videos per day. I don't know of any softcore teen photo site that comes close to that in terms of updates.
But over the years, they also tinker with the site to make it user friendly. They have a massive amount of content, but I feel the site is very easy to use.
One example of how they to make the contents more accessible/user friendly:
Years ago, the naming system for zip downloads of photosets used a combination of letters and numbers. Then they switched to a different system, where the filenames were much longer, but that tried to describe the file contents more clearly. The system they use now is much improved:
It gives the site name, the date the photoset was posted at Met-Art, the name of the photoset, the model(s) featured in the photoset, the photographer, and the definition of the photoset (low, medium, or high).
Would be a photoset posted on 2011-05-08, with the title, "Presenting Felicia", featuring the model Felicia B, by the photographer Dolce, and the definition is high.
Personally, I would rather that the name of the model comes before the name of the photoset. And I would prefer the date of the set comes before the name of the photoset. For example:
Felicia B-2011.05.08-Presenting Felicia
That would make more sense, and make it easier to categorize, as far as I can see.
Because when you are looking over your photosets, you want to know who the model is, when the photoset was posted, and then the name of the photoset.
I pay less attention to who the photographer is. And I try to keep all the Met-Art sets in a common group for Met-Art.
But it's nice that Met-Art tries, on a constant basis, to make the site more user-friendly.
I visit Met-Art more often than I go to any museum. For one, it's easier to visit. For another, the contents are more interesting. For another, Met-Art is like a museum, that is cultural, uplifting, and stimulates the mind.
There are very few porn sites that fit that description.
In the TBP site, it says: "Could not locate exclusive content information."
Most of the site contents is exclusive, I believe. But don't expect 100% exclusive content.
Two main reasons for non-exclusive content:
1. They post videos and photo sets from other sites, as a cross-selling feature. Those videos and photo sets are clearly marked as coming from other sites, along with a link to those sites with a discount for joining.
2. They post videos and photo sets from a supplier who sells to other sites/networks. I've seen some videos that were posted at the Teen Mega World network, and later posted at 18 Only Girls. However, when the videos are posted at 18 Only Girls (or at Young Legal Porn, another site in the Diesel network), the videos offer a higher definition option, and usually have better lighting, better colors, and a higher quality to the video. So I think that's a good thing, where you can get a better quality version of a video, even if you saw it at another network.
This is not a news flash. They've always been boring.
I get more fun watching some commercials than I get out of watching most Metart videos. How do they make videos of beautiful, lovely models getting undressed so boring?
Many of their photosets are alluring, lovely, outstanding, really gorgeous to look at.
But my main question is: why can the Metart photosets be so alluring? And at the same time, their videos so boring?
Separately, when the downloaded Metart videos play back, there is sometimes a mosaic effect where the colors are sometimes pixellated, and that is just another distracting effect. What causes this? I don't get this effect watching videos I download from Diesel network or Teen Mega World or other sites I download from.
I don't have a gaming computer, that is set up for fast visual effects. But my laptop, and my desktop, are both fairly new, within the last year, so I should be able to play back even the 1080p videos with no problems, I would think.
If you are a member of Young Legal Porn or 18 Only Girls, the home page for each site has a special link to Wow Girls. Click the link, then click the Sign Up Now link at Wow Girls, and you can sign up to Wow Girls for $14.97/month recurring.
That's a savings of $5.02 off the PU/TBP discounted price of $19.99/month recurring.
I've read comments by other PU members that say the download limit is no problem. Other PU members say they've had real problems with the download limit, even though they did not exceed the stated download limit.
The TBP review states:
Download Limit: There is a daily download limit (all sites in the network have a limit: you may download up to 10 gigabytes of data each day, and additionally up to 15 big movies.).
If what TBP says is true, it doesn't seem that many people would have any problem with the download limit.
But apparently the mechanism that controls the download limit is not accurate.
So I am wondering if I should pay for a membership, and then find out whether I will have download limit problems.
And, apparently, the support staff is little or no help in resolving the problem of a false download limit.
Question about the $9.95 Twisty offer in the PornUsers newsletter.
I got a reply from a PU member stating the Twistys $9.95 offer was very limited.
Would someone from PU check to see if the Twisty offer has very limited downloading, or else has full access to the site for 30 days?
Thanks in advance.
The reply I got was as follows:
Luiz (0) Unfortunately I subscribed for this offer. On the newsletter it was not clear at all that this was a trial membership. Actually, there was nothing about full or trial membership. After subscribing - and I never subscribe to trial memberships -, I found out that despite the membership being a 30 day trial, I only have access to 3 scenes and 3 photosets for the whole month! Clarifying, everyday the same 3 scenes and 3 photosets are the only thing that I have access to. I paid $9.95 for 3 videos and 3 photosets.
I always trusted PornUsers offers and have subscribed to some of them, but now, the first thing that I did, after cancelling the subscription to Twistys, was unsubscribing to PornUsers newsletter. It's a shame that PU took part on this theft.
lk2fireone (146) REPLY TO #8 - Luiz :
I sincerely doubt that PU/TBP knew this offer was so limited.
If you can't get a refund on your own, I believe Khan (or someone else at PU) will work with you to settle this matter: either a refund, or full access to Twistys for one month.
PU/TBP is not part of Twistys. But PU/TBP has stepped in to help their members in the past. And PU/TBP carries a lot more weight than an individual.
