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?

-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.

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!
As always, these guys are fairly aggressively marketing to ex-members like myself. Their latest (Halloween-themed) e-mails advertise a deal on six of Met's sites, mostly on the harder end of the scale, including one called MagikSex that I hadn't previously heard of. Anyone know what the deal with this site is - how long it's been around, whether it's a pre-existing site or a newly created one, etc?
From the previews I looked at, it seems like the hardest site in Met's network currently with the possible exception of Ninn (e.g. there's a fair amount of orgies and DPs), but still artsy. However, oddly for this network, I've seen some of the content before - at least some of it seems to be repackaged from various Private films. So seeing it on Met's network is odd, to say the least.

- Recent material very well made and very stylish, beautiful standard of films.
- Recent photo sets very interesting & original.
- Greater variety of models than normal, including some a little older, and some latin girls.
- There seems to be a lot of genuine sexual excitement in the models, they really looked turned on and I often can believe that they have orgasms.
- Very quick and reliable downloads, always maxes out my internet connection (around 2 MBytes/sec).
- Multiple sizes and resolutions of photos & videos, up to 1080p, although I only ever download the highest.
- Site doesn't seem to time out. When I first joined I stayed logged in for several days while downloading the old material.
- Quite a few Paul Black movies - my all time favourite. You wouldn't believe a film with just one girl in it would be so exciting and different.
- Most films are relatively short - 5 to 10 minutes - and well edited.
- The earlier material is rather uninspired, and quite a lot isn't exclusive.
- Some of the earlier films are a bit pixellated - claim to be HD but I'm not so sure.
- Rather too many models with tattoos and piercings for my tastes.
- Some of the older photo sets are far too long, with endless almost identical photos.
- The logo on the films is a bit intrusive although it is a bit better on the recent films, the logo on the photos is much smaller.
- The cross-site advertising is a pain.
- It is possible to vote, but there is no comment mechanism so there is no feel of any community membership.
The basis of The Life Erotic is stylized female masturbation - there is some g/g material but that also concentrates on the act of masturbation rather then regular lesbian sex. These days there are daily updates, 2 films and 5 photo sets per week, earlier there were 4 updates per week with rather fewer films.
I really like the current material, even when it is a bit dark for my tastes or when the girls have a few too many tattoos or piercings, it is so imaginative and well made that I still enjoy it. The earlier material isn't as good. Concentrating on solo female masturbation is a bit limiting, and it obviously took a while to find the right style. The current material is amazing, but pre-2012 isn't great. With 2 films produced per week, this means there isn't a huge amount of top quality material. That's really the only thing I can mark the site down for.
It might seem a bit limiting to concentrate on solo masturbation, but they are managing to make it very varied and interesting with some great scenarios. It may be all solo or GG, but in my experience the scenarios make it genuinely for couples too. Personally, I like to see member comments on sites, although I rarely join in as I tend to be downloading the material a week or two late, and I definitely miss having comments on this site - I think they are missing a trick here as one of the ways to encourage membership rather than piracy is to make a community of the site. I joined relatively recently for a year, and am almost certain to renew.

- Stunningly beautiful cinematic quality films
- Almost all attractive models, many from MetArt.
- Increasingly active comments from users. They can be a bit pretentious, but are often interesting.
- They have promised that they don't fiddle votes, and only block abusive comments.
- Very quick and reliable downloads, always maxes out my internet connection (around 2 MBytes/sec).
- Easy navigation and basic search facilities. All updates are clearly dated.
- All exclusive content, I think.
- Multiple sizes and resolutions of photos & videos. Videos up to 1080p.
- Streaming available - never tried it
- So far, unlike for example X-Art, SexArt has held the line against including ugly mysoginistic male-oriented material like anal.
- Around 200 films and slightly more photo sets. Daily updates - 3 films per week.
- Other interesting material, including interviews with models. After a long pause, these are starting again.
- 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, and some less attractive models recently.
- Cross-site advertising is a pain.
- 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.
- Recent issue with the Los Angeles operation (due to the mandatory condom laws), which has reduced the variety of material over the last few months.
This site is very firmly in the "glamcore" or "heartcore" genre. They started off with a lot of heavily artistic material, but are now concentrating on making the sex as real as possible. 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 is a fairly even mix of solo, GG & BG films - for a while there were no solo films but they have made a comeback recently. The films are pushing boundaries of eroticism and getting a real connection and excitement, but the photo sets often just look like more explicit MetArt photos. Stylistically the photos & films don't match.
There is a real effort with the setups and stories for the films, and several have really changed my ideas of what can be done with erotica. The films mostly have good scene setting, and a fun or romantic bit at the end, which make them feel much more intimate and real. I find this much better than a film that is nothing but sex. There have also been two long series of films (Snow Fun and currently The Game) which allow time for a bit more character development.
I particularly loved the more stylized and artistic earlier material - the body painting etc which have been criticised in other reviews. While I really like the current material too, I do find that my favourite films are almost all the earlier ones which is a slight concern.
I must be honest, I love this site. A lot of the films are an absolute joy to watch. Some people may complain that it isn't hard enough, but it is wonderful to see material that is done with such respect for the performers and has no sign of mistreatment or ugliness whatsoever. In fact it is a real indictment of modern porn that people will criticise this site because models don't get mistreated or hurt.
It isn't perfect, and I'm not that impressed by a lot of the photo sets, but they are trying hard, and are brave enough to try things which might be less popular. I will definitely be renewing when my current annual membership ends. If you are unsure about joining a porn site because of what you might see, you will find nothing nasty here.
MetArt adding a tinge of more eroticism to some photosets.
MetArt is still softcore. But yesterday, 2013-10-19, they added a softcore lesbian photoset of two models. The models actually were shown touching and kissing each other's breasts, as well as kissing each other on the lips. A few years back the models might have looked at each other with their eyes, but fondling was strictly forbidden.
I guess Met-Art is trying to boldly step into the new world of eroticism, where being nude is not enough to satisfy its audience.

Couple friendly porn - Some of the scenes on this site are my wife and I's favorites!
They treat the male models as people as well. They actually get a model page.
Good diversity for this genre - They seem to use different people that give good diversity to this style of porn.
Photo set with most every video!
It's hard to put this in cons - but because of the diversity of creators - at time there are scenes that are just dull.
No EASY way to find scenes by kink or category. There is a user submitted function - but I would like some effort put in by SexArt to categorize a bit.
While the content is more hit and miss than other sites, you get a lot of bang for your buck here due to the daily high quality updates, and some of the best unique, sexy, couple-friendly porn out there! The site is easy to use, easy to download and they pay attention to the details to make it a great site!
I firmly believe that a web site is only as good as its customer service. Once again this week, Met Art demonstrated that it is an AWESOME web site by providing some of the best online customer service I have ever experienced.
I upgraded my subscription from monthly to annual. My monthly subscription was through Epoch and my annual subscription is now through their new biller(Rocketgate?). What I did not realize is that Epoch had already queued me up for my monthly charge, which I saw on my account a few days after upgrading. I sent an email to Met Art support telling them about the issue. Within a few minutes, here is first class the response I got:
My name is amnon and im the CEO of MetArt,
So sorry for your trouble; however rest assured you are in great hands and our support team is looking into this issue ASAP.
we will make you happy.
all the best,
OK, I'm not easily impressed, but here is a guy who truly understands how important it is to be responsive to customers.
So many other websites (adult or otherwise) really don't care when there are problems and some (often adult) are downright obnoxious (Go look at the chain of my MPL Studios comments. I complained about an easily resolvable problem and MPL Studios blamed ME and permanently kicked me off of their site.)
Oh, and yes, I was promptly refunded the Epoch overcharge and received a follow up email from Met Art customer service to ensure everything was OK.
Kudos to Met Art for not only having a terrific web site, but for ensuring that, in the words of the CEO, "I am happy". Yes, I am happy. Thank you very much!
I saw one video of Meddie and Stacy, titled "Afternoon Orgasms", posted 2012-11-09, that is a shortened version of the same video posted at Beauty Angels (part of the Teen Mega World network). Meddie is called Meddie at TMW, but the other model is named Stasy. That video was posted 2012-04-16.
Very good video, 2 attractive models, nice lesbian scene.
I was wondering why some models and their sets have been deleted. Have returned to the site after a hiatus and went looking for some of my favorite models; only do discover some of them, and all their seta, missing. Berengere A, Alessandra D, and Roarie A come to mind immediately.
Does anyone know why Met Art deletes some of their models and all of their sets?
What's the deal here, with this 50% off promo email
Just seen an email from Met Art network with yesterdays date and said 50% off which is $14.99 but when you click the join link it says $29.99 and even better for me in the UK £23.61 cause of ccbill ripoff regional pricing thing. So not a deal at all and at nearly £24 one of the most expensive out there.
Just wanted to quickly share my experience with the Metart Network's customer support.
I had read in the forum that after joining one site , you can join any other for $10 recurring. I didn't know that this offer stands only for an hour and is given by an automatic link, which after an hour expires. After that, it's $20 recurring.
Now, I don't have a credit card, I use a debit VISA card, which I use only for online shopping, so I rarely keep any money on it, which means I have to manually put money in, whenever I want to purchase something. I had $20 in, so I got SexArt, with the intention next day to try TLE, Ninn,Randall, at such a great price.
To my surprise, I found that this offer would be valid for only an hour (it was the evening here, couldn't make any deposit). So I'm emailing their support to tell them what happened.
Not only they were polite and responded fast, they REFUNDED my initial purchase, completely cancelled my membership, so I could rejoin next day from start and get the discounts for all the sites I wanted.
This kind of customer service is awesome,hard to find I think in the adult websites industry, and creates loyal customers. Qudos to them.
The ONLY thing I would like to see from them support-wise, is a live chat, which is much faster than email exchanging, although as far as e-mailing goes, they were very fast with their responses. Over 13 emails exchanged in 24 hours.
There's a new photoset at Rylsky Art featuring a model named Jeff Milton.
In spite of her boyish name, she's a knockout.
I wonder where they get the names they use for these models?
Rylsky Art is a new site, started last year. So the site contents are still small.
But Rylsky is a fine photograph, featured at Met Art.
And he has an eye for attractive young teens.
As the site adds more content, it will be worth more.
I wouldn't recommend joining the site, unless you have a favorite model that is featured here. Or you got a steep discount from the $29.99/month regular price.
The style is basically Met-Art softcore approach, with just a touch more harder edge.
But no hardcore that I've seen. No boys at this this site. Just solo girl, or soft girl-girl.
I recently joined the site and I thought this was a pretty good site; although, the image sizes aren't consistent in resolution size. Also, in my opinion I think they should've cut out some similar images in the galleries to make the sets a little bit smaller in size. The site was well organized and easy to navigate through.
