User comments and ratings.
Sites in the Met Art Network seem to have adopted the worst kind of regional pricing where $1 (USD) = £1 (GBP).
Too many photo sets start out with the model already nude or nearly nude.
Anyone who prefers videos would find the collection rather small here.
Rylsky is one of the more popular photographers featured on Met Art and this site is devoted to his work having started up in September 2012 and with consistent updates has grown in to a collection of approximately 218 models, 824 photo sets (around 50,000 total pics) and 86 movies. Updates come regularly but not quite daily, averaging about 5/6 sets a week.
The photos come in 3 sizes with the largest size going up to 3744 x 5616px, a medium size at 1365 x 2048px and a small size at 682 x 1024px. A zip is available for all 3 sizes and as is normal for sites in the Met Art network the zip file names always include the date of the set, the name of the model and title of the set which I love. One of my pet hates are sites that make you mess around having to rename everything you download. The majority of the photo sets are solo and fairly softcore although most sets do give you some spread and close up shots with occasional finger insertions. There is a small number of two girl sets and also a few backstage sets.
The videos have up to 6 download options 1080p, 720p, 360p, 270p, WMV and Divx avi. The 1080p videos that I downloaded were in mp4 format with a 5000 kbps bitrate and looked excellent on my 24 inch monitor. This is primarily a photography site with photo sets outnumbering videos by about 10 to 1. Average run time of the videos is around 5 minutes. I have to admit I've always found the videos of Met Art Network sites rather boring and this site was no different for me.
The layout and navigation of the site is pretty much the same as other sites in the Met Art Network that I've previously had memberships to with all the usual search features and settings options including the user defined tags. There is user interaction in the form of ratings and the possibility to leave comments. Quite often you will see the Photographer Rylsky replying to feedback from users.
The only reason I joined this site was because of an email promo I received a couple of years ago when the site was fairly new with the offer price of $7.99, surprisingly the link still worked even after a couple of years. Other than cheap email offers I have to say that the Met Art Network sites have lost me as a customer as long as they persist with the $1 = £1 regional pricing. The site was ok for what I paid but in general I like to see models starting out in a bit more clothing with a bit more tease but I knew what to expect here so I can't really complain too much.
I could go ahead and write a review that goes over what everyone else says about the site... tons of content, lots of pretty women, etc. But the one thing that stands out as I go through the hundreds and hundreds of models is how many pictures look blurry, upscaled (as in pixelated) or otherwise distorted. I'm only interested in downloading the highest resolution pictures and it really amazes me just how many aren't worth saving. I tried to nail it down to particular photographers or shoot settings where the problem shows up but there's nothing constant to nail it down - it's just throughout the site. Touting how many megapixels your pictures are doesn't mean much to me unless they're clean and clear.
Don't get me wrong - there's still a lot of great content here. But, at the same time, it'll be a long time before I re-up here, if ever.

1 new update a day
Some older sets are not exclusive
The site has been around since 2009 but some of the sets pre-date that.
The models are generally young and all shapes, sizes, ethnicity, hair color, some hairy, some tattoos, etc.
This site is, to a large extent, sort of an evolution of the "girl in the woods" theme with the idea that you are observing a model in a more natural environment instead of a studio environment. Often the idea is that the model doesn't really know you are there or doesn't pay much attention to you, the viewer. About 50% of the sets are solo girl in a straight modeling scenario. Many of these sets are of very, very attractive girls that are just standing or in other conservative poses. Another 40% are female masturbation sets that range from boring to pretty interesting. And the remaining 10% are girl/girl scenes. I need to say that the majority of these are very conservative sets with few money or close-up shots. (There are some Oh My God models, but they are not necessarily doing OMG things....) There are notable exceptions, though. It depends on the model, I guess. There also is a wide mix of eye contact. Some sets have models that never make any eye contact with the camera at all. Earlier sets are better, but the quality of those sets is not as good. Oh, most of the sets start out with the model(s) clothed. I noticed some models remained clothed for 75% or more of some sets.
The first thing that strikes me about this site is how dark it is. Everything is dark. The site, the sets, the lighting, the videos, EVERYTHING! Older sets are a little better in this regard, but you will generally think there is something wrong with your display. Newer images are dark, contrasty, very shadowy. Distracting. Annoying. Generally awful. I batched a couple of sets through Photoshop and auto-adjust increased the brightness in most images by 50% or more. That is a heck of a lot and it is not accidental. They are deliberately turning down the brightness on these sets. You have to work to make images this dark. Really work.
The second thing I noticed was how hard the webmasters are trying to get you to go to the live site. When you get to the landing page, you don't see a single girl on the site you are paying for. instead you get a full page of images from the two live-cam sites that seem to be taking over the Met-Art network. You have to scroll down to see the contents of the site you already paid for. The webmasters are apparently experimenting with where best to put these live-cam ads as they can be found in different places on the various Met-Art sites. This is the most intrusive placement, right at the top of the main page and present on every page on the site. Stop it! Really. Just stop.
Another thing is the almost complete lack of playfulness, compassion or interaction with the viewer in many of the sets. Some of these models have all of the expressions of a check-out girl at K-Mart, meaning none. Even models that normally shine are somehow less expressive here. This is not in any way erotic as the name implies.
And the last thing to note is how inconsistent many of the sets are. More recent sets seem to follow that dark theme for the most part, but some sets are not like that at all. Some sets are very short, some are filled with close-ups, some are not. Some girls are almost entirely fully clothed for the whole set, some are not clothed at all. Some have eye-contact, many do not. You can tell if you are familiar with other Met-Art sets that some of these sets seem like they might have been B-roll or too weird to put on Met-Art. For example, there is an outdoor set of Lorena, beautiful Met-Art regular, where she is entirely covered in red mud in every single image. Really? Has to be a B-roll.
Navigation is generally good. There is an options section that allows you to set defaults for image size, number of thumbnails on a page, etc. like some other Met Art sites. The search function has user defined tags, which helps if you are looking for a particular trait that others are likely to define, like ginger or spread. But it could be better.
Bottom line? Good site to visit once, I guess. I personally don't like it anywhere near as much as other Met Art sites like Met-Art itself or Errotica Archives. You can actually see the weird evolution/devolution from a site similar to Met Art in the beginning to a site that now looks more like a bad graphic novel than a soft-core porn site. There is a decent amount of material here and some of it is pretty good, but be prepared to sift through a lot of dark, odd and often slightly off pictures to find things that really float your boat.
I wish I could be more enthusiastic, but this site just doesn't live up to Met-Art standards.
I'd really appreciate feedback from existing members of MetArt.
I've often been tempted to join the site, but one thing puts me off: all the sample images I see from the site are what I'd call "end of photoshoot" shots; the model is either completely nude or close to completely nude, showing everything.
To me a whole gallery of nude shots isn't that appealing: far better is a gallery where the model starts off fully-clothed (or at least partially-clothed, and then progresses to nudity and the kind of poses I see in the Metart samples.
Would I find this kind of gallery at Metart? It's hard to tell because all the available samples are the nude shots: but I'm hoping this might just be because the nude shots have more "pulling power" to get people to join. It's just my thing that when I look at one of those shots, my first thought is "I wish I could see you fully-clothed, and THEN see this shot...".
Thanks in advance for any comments about whether MetArt would provide this, or whether I should look elsewhere!

Top rated softcore site
Some of the most beautiful models on the planet!
The site is HUGE!
Spectacular imagery and sets
Dozens of outstanding photographers across Europe
4-6 updates PER DAY!
Excellent search capabilities
Excellent navigation and "window" management
Excellent range of photo and video resolution
Download speeds are consistently fast.
Customer service that ANY on-line company would be proud of.
Only one thing in the CON category:
Too much cross-selling to the other sites in the network.
I noticed there were no current reviews of this site so I thought I would write an update to a review I wrote two years ago.
I've been a member of this site off and on for over a decade now and am a loyal, permanent customer. It is without a doubt one of the best softcore sites on the internet. The models are spectacular, the sets are great, the clothing, hair and make-up are usually perfect, the variety is great and the girls generally look like they are having a good time. Nothing cheap or poorly done anywhere, period.
Navigation is also very good and the way the site opens tabs for sets and individual images is the best I've seen. I've actually used this site as a reference to other webmasters with sites that have mediocre navigation.
There are several exclusive or nearly exclusive models on this site that words cannot describe. Many are well known European models but many are women you've never seen before but will want to see again and again. The girls are almost entirely all natural. The images you see on the main page and tour are perfectly representative of the images in the site as are the scores of the models (over 150 legitimate 9+ models).
To be clear here, this is a SOFTCORE site. If you enjoy looking at incredibly beautiful naked women positioned in ways that tastefully show off their assets, this is a great site for you. The site is mostly solo sets with a few two-girl sets and an occasional masturbation set. Sexy, but no sex. If you are looking for hardcore, insertions or kink of any kind, you will need to look elsewhere. Pretty much the only gaping here will be your mouth just before you say "Oh my fucking god this girl is beautiful"....and you will say that a lot!
There is really only one negative that I'm going to mention here and it is more of a customer service thing than a fault with the site. Met Art is part of a pretty big network which includes Sex Art, the Life Erotic, Errotica Archives, Erotic Beauty and a few others. Unlike many other networks, you have to join each of these sites separately. OK, I can appreciate that the individual owners want to maximize revenue. What I find a little annoying is that in Met-Art, when you look at a set of a model, a section sometimes appears at the bottom of the set that says something like "more of this model:' with a bunch of images that are links. Well, although there may be more of this model on Met-Art, the links are NOT WITHIN THE MET ART SITE. They are links to offers to join one of the other sites in the network where more images of this model exist. Since I first mentioned this a few years ago, I have seen a few other networks that do it but some of those are all inclusive networks with free access to the other sites. There is always a link on the top of each page that will get you to the models "profile card" within Met-Art (just click on the model's name), so after a while you will learn to ignore these links at the bottom.
Now, in-spite of that cross-selling tactic, the guys at Met-Art are gracious enough to discount the other sites once you join Met-Art, sometimes providing significant discounts, as low as $5-10 for a month for each site. To be fair, these sites have their own flavor and plenty of unique sets. And pretty much every site on the network is the same or nearly the same quality as Met-Art, although some of these other sites are considerably smaller.
Oh, and here's an interesting one. They have a cam site called MetCams.com. I do not partake in cam sites very often but browsing this one brings up several of the top models that are showcased on the Met-Art site. A few years ago I, um, came across Mila I., one of my all time favorite Met-art models, on the cam site and I could not resist. She did not disappoint, I was completely satisfied and I have a memory that (oddly, I admit) rivals a few from high-school. Clearly, the cam site is not soft-core....
I also want to say that the customer service for Met-Art and their network is simply outstanding. They are very responsive and have cleared up billing and other questions/issues immediately whenever I have had to contact them.
So...if you have not yet been to this site and want some seriously great softcore imagery and video to add to your collection, Met-Art is a MUST. I have an annual membership and have joined nearly every one of the other sites in the network for at least a month. This site and every other site on the network is totally, completely worth subscribing to.
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.

* Featuring some of the big EU pornstars
* Many different download options
* Pretty good connetion
* Confusing nagivation
* Crappy video quality!
* Comes with prechecked cross sales
* One-Click upgrade "options"
* Number of scenes/movies is not that large
I joined this site because I was looking for scenes of some of my favorite EU girls and since the review on TBP seemed pretty good, I decided to give it a go, and regretted my decision just a couple of minutes later.
The biggest issue with this site is most certainly the quality of the movies. Except from a few notable exceptions, the majority of the scenes are just a blurry pulp. And yes, I'm talking about the 1080p scenes! They mostly look like 640x480 scenes "blown up" to 1080. Absolutely no details, not even close to the standard HD quality of other sites. It's a pity, because most of the scenes are quite well done with good lighting and pretty good action.
The second issue of this site is the navigation. I've subscribed to many sites in my lifetime and I've seen some unusual and plain navigations in my time, but this site tops them all. There is basically no clear distinction between "movie" and "scene". If you click on a model, you will be directed to a number of links, which will lead you to either a picture set, or a scene, or a movie (where you have to find the scene you were looking for). Some movies are actually some kind of long trial movies. It's just a mess.
Talking about search options: you can manually enter search words, but the scenes are tagged by the customers, so there's a big chance that you'll miss the scene you were looking for, because the tag was actually "big natural breast" instead of "natural tits".
I have to say that this site is a big letdown for me. Maybe I expected too much, maybe I should have read more/other reviews first. I strongly disagree with the TBP review here, this site is NOWHERE in the 80-ranks.

- Cinematic quality films
- A lot of attractive models, many from MetArt.
- Active comments from users.
- Very quick and reliable downloads, always maxes out my internet connection (around 5 MBytes/sec).
- All updates are clearly dated.
- All exclusive content
- Multiple sizes and resolutions of photos & videos. Videos up to 1080p.
- Streaming available - never tried it
- Around 350 films and slightly more photo sets. Daily updates - 3 films per week.
- Little variety of models - almost all white, slim, 18 - 25.
- Photo sets by and large not so good.
- Rather too many models with tattoos and piercings for my tastes, inceasing number of less attractive mainstream porn models recently.
- Cross-site advertising is a pain.
- Recent site revamp is a big step back, with prominent adverts for webcams in the middle of the screen, and a very difficult to follow and uneven layout.
- Photo sets which come with the films are very variable, partly because the lighting is set up for films and they are obviously done in a hurry.
- The sex is becoming harsher and less joyful. Over recent months almost every scene has had to include something "controversial" - blindfold, gag, ass licking, toilet sex, anal, humiliation, or the scene is so dark you can't see anything anyway.
- The films are becoming far too long. 30 minutes is now common, lots of dark, meaningful guff followed by the kind of sex you don't actually want to watch anyway.
I am rewriting this review as the site has changed out of all recognition since my last review just from over a year ago. The basic facts listed above haven't changed a lot, but the material they produce has.
This site was in the "glamcore" or "heartcore" genre. They seem to be now concentrating on "fantasy", by which they clearly mean "male fantasy", and the material often now has an ugly edge to it, as though beautiful sex is no longer enough (for us, beautiful sex is ALL).
They release 3 films a week, mostly with associated photo sets, and separate photo sets on the other days. The films are markedly higher quality than the photos. There was a fairly even mix of solo, GG & BG films - for a while there were no solo films, and over the last few weeks it has been almost exclusively GG. For a while the films pushed boundaries of eroticism and getting a real connection and excitement, but now they have fallen back on being controversial for the sake of it, like they don't know what else to do.
The photo sets have always been of mostly much lower quality, often just look like more explicit MetArt photos. Stylistically the photos & films don't match. The are very few BG photo sets, and they are of pretty low quality.
My last review stated that I would definitely rejoin. In the end I took a break and have dipped in for a couple of single months since. We've now cancelled for the final time and won't be rejoining. The films just aren't fun anymore. We watch the early films - bright, simple, beautiful, short & disciplined, and above all FUN, over and over. I don't think there has been anything released over the last year that we have watched more than once. The films are getting longer and longer, and darker and uglier.
I originally joined this site when it was about 6 months old, and absolutely loved it, it did everything I wanted as far as the films were concerned even if the photography wasn't as good. It has been on a long gradual slide since then. I watch erotica with my wife who has a hair-trigger as far as ugly material is concerned, and she just doesn't like it any more. They've clearly run out of ideas and are just pushing down the obvious easy route of nasty sex claiming to be "brave". If you think anal sex is a "Milestone", you're not making glamcore anymore.
I've given the site a higher mark than I otherwise would because it still has the library of amazingly gorgeous early material. Even if you would dislike the current material as much as we do, it is worth joining for a month to get that first year - 18 months of absolutely ground-breaking erotic films.
While the site is still a long way from violent abusive mainstream porn, it is nothing like the beautiful, elegant, joyous place it was. It is no longer really that female or couple friendly, more a place for hardened porn addicts who fancy something a bit classier looking.
All the glamcore site move in this direction in the end - see what happened at x-art & joymii. It seems that a couple of years producing bright, beautiful, female friendly material is about the limit. Then they just become harder, nastier, darker, all in the name of "development" but really just chasing the male porn addict market. Given the state of that market, it seems a strange thing to do. I guess we will just wait around for a new high quality site to appear, and follow that for it's period at the top.
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.

--models are gorgeous!
--photographic and video quality are excellent
--explicit but tasteful posing
--videos are far better than those at parent site Met-Art
--easy site navigation, signup and cancel through CC Bill
--3 sizes of zip files and multiple video resolution and format options
--comment section with participation from the photographer
--good site preview
the only real cons relate to the relatively small size of the site:
--only 114 models at this time
--updates with about one photoset or video a day (wish it were more)
--some photosets broken into 2 sets of about 60 photos each (applies mainly to older material)
--some sets shot using a lower megapixel camera (6 megapixel)
--the user tags search system doesn't have very much user participation, and as such, isn't very useful
Eternal Desire is one of the newer sites in the Met-Art family, and consists exclusively of the work of "Arkisi", one of Met-Art's better and more prolific photographers. The site was launched in February 2013, and now features 114 different models.
The models are gorgeous European girls in the 18 to 25 year old age range. Only 8s, 9s, and 10s here, with most of them on the top end of the scale (or off the scale!).
The site consists primarily of photo sets, with a small amount of videos (there were 8 videos released in July, August, and September of this year).
The site looks and navigates very much like Met-Art, which is to be expected as it is one of their sites. I had no problems whatsoever navigating around the site, and my download speeds are always good. I don't know if download managers would work, as I don't use them.
The photographic quality is excellent--lighting, focus, etc are all top notch. One caveat to that is that some sets are shot as low as 6 megapixels. The sets are upscale (often with fine furniture and well appointed rooms), and the girls wear nice outfits and lingerie. The makeup is well done, and not overdone (IMHO). The posing is explicit, but not vulgar, and always seems to include a few good pussy close-ups. Occasionally there is too much fingering and finger spreading in the photos for my tastes, but there are very few sets that actually disappoint me.
The videos deserve special mention and accolades. Any of you who have been a member at Met-Art know their videos are kinda lame. Not so at Eternal Desire. There are explicit lingering views of what you really want to see, and lately, quite of bit of fingering and even finger insertion (though not overdone). The girls interact with camera quite well and seductively. Instead of being a waste of time like many of the videos at Met-Art, these are videos that you actually want to see. The resolutions come in 720p and 1080p, plus a few smaller sizes as well. The HD vids are in MPEG4 format.
The only real cons for the site relate to its relatively small size. 114 models is still small compared to many, and 1 photoset or video day is a lot less than the mega-sites. Eventually I noticed enough of my favorite models there that I had to join. I've been there 2 months now, and I'm finding it difficult to leave (no doubt as soon as I do, several of my favorite girls will have sets published).
Like most of the Met-Art sites, there is a comment section, and Arkisi occasionally participates.
I wish all sites were this good!
The site preview is excellent, so if you are a fan of erotic photography featuring totally gorgeous women, you should definitely check it out! I got the PU discount price by navigating there through their review page.
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 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!
I'd let my membership of TLE lapse as the quality of the photo sets in particular had slipped a bit and they only release 2 films per week. However, I decided to rejoin for a month.
The bad news is that the photo sets are still a bit down on what they were a year or so ago.
The good news is that they have stepped up the release schedule. They now do 3 films a week (instead of 2), and release a photo set every day (they used to do photo sets on the days that they didn't do films). So thats 3 films/7 photo sets instead of 2 films/5 photo sets.
I don't think its enough for me to become a long term member, but I'll definitely dip into it more often.

ALS has been setting the bar high for years.
-all models are shaved and otherwise natural
-over 500,000 pics in zips
-overall amount of content is overwhelming
-lost count of videos, but I'd guess over 3000
-most videos in 1080P
-mostly solo and g/g
-subjects also include b/g, peeing, dildos, speculums, fisting, anal insertions, anal fisting and lots of outdoors and BTS
-newly redesigned and searchable website with tags (90% of peeing content was tagged correctly, I looked at everything on their site and tagged the remaining 10%. You are welcome.)
-one, sometimes two updates daily
They are remastering lots of their older stuff. How cool is it to see those favorite pics of yours from years ago in more detail than ever before? This is one of the coolest things going on at ALS right now. I give them so much credit for staying true to their roots, and for putting in the real effort and investment that it takes to do this.
I honestly can't come up with any cons here.
Some past reviews have mentioned their introduction of b/g content as a con, while other have considered it a plus. I'm pretty neutral on it personally. To those who feel that ALS is straying from their roots with b/g content, I will say that is not true. ALS has done b/g content in their early days too, including one video with Mia that I'm thinking of, it was just rare back then.
The merger with Met Art was totally a good thing, all concerns regarding that have not played out, and they have kept everything that made them unique and great while totally modernizing their site.
You may notice some of the oldest archived sets appear thinned out. This is not new, they were thinned out on their old site too, actually those old archived sets were just samples of what was once available on CDGirlsOnline.com. As part of their renovation with Met Art, ALS had actually brought more pics back online than they had before.
ALS - All Ladies Shaved. I obviously love this site, because I have given it my top score. If you look at all of the sites that I have scored close to 100%, they all have one thing in common - they are large, high quality networks that are run like the best of the small operations. This could not be more true of ALS - they go to every length possible to please their customers. Usually, the "Bottom Line" is the section where I go into objective detail about a site. With ALS, I will ask you to forgive me for being a bit subjective, because I would rather tell you the story of my own personal experience. ALS is a site that dates back to 1996, just about my earliest days ever seeing online porn. I didn't find them in the 1990's though, they first came to my attention in the early 2000's. I remember that ALS's pics were the first that I ever saw in 1200x800 resolution back around 2003, and I knew they had just raised the bar on everyone else. Those 1200x800 ALS pics still look amazing today. Back in those early days, I got what ALS pics I could from TGP's and the like because I was not in a position to get a full membership. Over the years, I lost many files, first due to an ill conceived idea to delete my collection, and later to a hard drive crash, but ALS's pics were among the ones that I remembered the most.
So I finally joined ALS a few months ago, hoping to rebuild my old collection and check out all of their new stuff too. I was impressed with the amount of content on ALS's site. They are one of those sites that you really can just get lost in, due to the overwhelming amount of pics and videos. ALS has a very distinctive style. It goes much beyond just having all of their models shaved. They love to do shoots at the beach and by the pool on bright, sunny days. Their models are young and slender with natural breasts and few if any tattoos. They always look like they're having a lot of fun too, and you can see lots of behind the scenes videos where the models are just having a good time with each other and with the staff. At the same time, with all of this lighthearted fun going on, ALS can really push the boundaries. ALS is the only site I can think of where the models seem to be having such a fun time while doing things as extreme as fisting, using speculums, and putting clamps (the ALS "dreamcatcher") on their pussies. Of course, there is lots of peeing too. So, there I was, downloading all of this great stuff from ALS, when I realized that something was missing.
I had some pics from the earliest days of ALS that I just couldn't find anymore. Actually, as I would later learn, the pics that I couldn't find were shot and watermarked by ALS, but they were never on alsscan.com or alsangels.com. They were only released on CD by CDGirlsOnline.com, a site that is long gone. CDGirlsOnlines.com was a site that sold CD's of pics via mail with exclusive ALS pics that couldn't be found on their websites. I was let down, thinking that I might miss out ALS's original, earliest work.
So, I contacted support, and they were incredibly helpful! Support passed my email along to several other employees, each of who were remarkably helpful, until it ended up with ALS's content manager. We compared notes about ALS's pics from it's earliest days, and we looked over the really old stuff that I had in my collection. Almost all of the stuff that couldn't be found anymore was from CDGirlsOnline.com. Despite the fact that they had closed CDGirlsOnline.com years ago, he went the extra mile to help me out. So far, he has found thousands of rare, old pics from CDGirlsOnline.com. The ones that he has found so far were released only for a limited time as bonuses, bloopers, and outtakes on the ALS sites and then removed. Out of incredible generosity, he has made these classic ALS pics from CDGirlsOnline.com available to me. Some people feel inclined to guard and keep secret the rare things that they come across. I would rather as many of you as possible enjoy ALS's pics, so that is why I am sharing this information with you, with ALS's permission. These old pics - bonuses, bloopers, and outtakes - are available to you as well, if you sign up as a member and ask politely. ALS has made no announcement that they will be remastering these pics, posting them on their sites, or making them available indefinitely, but they are available right now by special request. They are not up to current ALS quality standards, they range from 400x600 to 1200x800 in resolution, but they are the sharpest 400x600 pics I have ever seen. It's also really cool to have ALS pics with watermarks dating back to 1996, even if the resolution is low by today's standards. What's more, ALS tells me that they still have everything that they ever shot, some in RAW files, and the earliest content on analog color film, all saved in a storage locker somewhere. Isn't that the stuff of legends?
In recent months they have been splitting their photo sets up in to 2 or 3 parts so instead of a complete photo set every day you now only get a half or third of a photo set for your daily update and usually have to wait 1 to 2 weeks to complete the set. A disappointing development for one of my once favourite sites.
First of all I have to say that I joined this site thanks to a 1 day free trial offer, so I cannot complain much since I didn't pay for it.
The reason I joined was, basically, to get access to the videos by some of my favorite girls, in particular Little Caprice (Caprice A in this site) and Blue Angel. And so I was a little dissapointed to see that there were only to videos of each, and although they were in fact highly erotic and extremely well filmed, well, I was expecting more.
During my 1 day free trial, of course, I also browsed and downloaded pictures and videos from other models, but I have to say that, after a while, and if the models didn't seem remarkable enough, it all started looking the same to me. I lost interest.
It's a pity because, in other aspects, this site seems made precisely for me: it offers high quality, sensual erotic material, without the hardcore, often extreme, sometimes disgusting stuff that you can find in most sites. Videos are filmed with care, and actors and actresses act passionately and with tenderness. Of course, if you are looking for a more extreme take on sex and porn, this site will probably dissapoint you.
From the technical point of view, I have almost nothing to complain about: you can stream videos (although I couldn't get to fast-forward) or download them in different qualities. Download speeds were good, and there didn't seem to be a download limit, even in free trial mode.
All in all, this site is excellent in the quality of the videos (technically and artistically), very good in relation to the beauty of models, quite good in design and navigation. It just gets a little repetitive when you browse through the archive. But hell, what site doesn't get repetitive after a while?
Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
-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.
I've seen them for a while now on the met art network sites, says free day then you are charged $30 or something. Has anyone anymore info, is it legit, can you download anything on your free day and is it possible to cancel in time or do they charge you even if you cancelled as soon as you signed up.
1)Low-bitrate content (despite being HD resolution)
2)Site navigation is a bit confusing at first
This site has stunning models and great video directing. They look almost cinematic. Really quite an attractive site. However, I can't bring myself to staying with them.
To me, the biggest disappointment with SexArt is its video bitrate. This could have been right up there with my favorite sites (e.g. X-Art, Nubile Films), but instead, I couldn't wait to leave. While all videos are HD resolution (1080p), the low bitrate encoding makes them look choppy or too soft. If they'd only raise the bitrate to at least 7000K, then I'd go back in a heartbeat.
As it stands, I'd rather spend my money elsewhere. I'd still recommend it if you only want to go in for the pictures of the models, or you don't mind the low bitrate encoding.
Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Decent collection (about 1000 sets, I think)
Generally very attractive models
Many familiar models
Excellent value for the money
Photography is generally very good
Images available up to 3200x4800
For the price, you will not be disappointed!
Navigation is extremely basic
Site formatting is also very basic
Only a couple of videos (it is a photo site...)
Only 2 zip file sizes (but good choices)
Only 2 image file sizes (but big enough)
For less than $10, I figured I didn't have much to lose and I ended up getting MUCH more than I expected.
This site has several years worth of about 5 updates a week. The models are generally Eastern European. Many have been in Femjoy or MetArt, but there were also many, some quite beautiful, that I had not seen before. Some of the best European models on the planet are on this site, although most have different names. If you like Dominika, Katya or Mila on Met Art, they are all here. There are even a few nice sets of the now-retired but forever revered Marketa.
Neither the site nor the sets are quite as polished as some of the more expensive softcore sites, but I guess that is to be expected in this price range. There are many models that I've seen elsewhere and I just cant tell if the sets are from when they were younger, or if the girls just aren't wearing make-up. The tendency here is to use less or no make-up, so if you are not into the glam look, this is another treasure-site.
The sets are generally good quality, both indoors and outdoors. Lighting is good. The amount of "reveal" depends on the models, but most sets start out in lingerie or fully nude and about half have close-ups. There are no toys, insertions, etc., although there are a few scenes with two girls. This is not an "in your face" site...more of a girl-in-the-woods or girl-in-her-bedroom thing. Interaction with the photographer is generally very good, depending on the experience of the model, and many look like they are having a pretty good time. Kudos to the photo crew for that.
All sets are dated on the main thumbs page for each year. File names are reasonable for both the images and the zip files, so you don't have to go through hoops to save them. Since each set is listed since the site was created, you can tell that there is no recycling going on like at some other sites.
The navigation on the site is very, very basic. The update page is not formatted, so the update thumbs just go down the left side of the screen for ever. The two choices under each thumb are "screen sized" (currently 934x1400) or "print sized" (currently 3930x5988) older images are slightly smaller, but still pretty big.
So for navigation, you click on an option under a set image (screen or print) and then click on an image. To get back to the main page, you back out with your browser. There are no pop-ups or viewers. Once in a set, you can also download a zip file of images in the size you chose to get into the set (screen or print). NO toggling between image sizes or even choosing multiple zip file sizes once you commit to screen or print for the image sizes. No forward or backward movement once you chose an image to look at. Just page back and pick another image (or shift-click to open a new window). This works, but it seems so 1990. Perfectly acceptable, though, for the no-frills price.
I would have scored this site a little higher if it were not for the navigation. It is an honest site that is in the business of providing quality softcore images. They don't fluff it up and they don't steal your money. That is a rare and terrific thing in this industry and I will be back both for the images and to help ensure they stay around.
Bottom line? This site is a terrific deal! If you are tired of paying $30 to get into a new site only to be disappointed with quality or quantity of content and you like the softcore genre, then this site is a must-visit. C'mon! for under $10, you've got absolutely nothing to lose!
