I have been a continuous subscriber to 21st Sextury since 2009. It was one of the best sites around. Just 10 bucks a month and always a lot of good new material whenever I logged on.
So looking at the last 6 months or so I can just say: "What the heck happened?"
This site has gone completely sideways:
* First there was the godawful new design. The old design was simple, clean and efficient. The new one is bloated, buggy, annoying and a general design disaster.
* Then there was the video formats: no more WMV videos. I was told it was "obsolete". Maybe so, but that is what works best for me and is what I prefer as a customer.
Still, I could live with the design horror and the technical deficiencies if the material was still good. But not so:
* The missing photosets. Since 2010 or so there had always reliably been hi res photos with each set, now it seems mostly hit and miss.
* The photography quality itself has deteriorated greatly. Photos used to be super sharp, good lighting and color contrast, etc. Highly professional stuff, some of the best around. What do we have now? Blurry and washed out looking pictures seems to be the new norm.
* Hi res pictures when they do exist at all look like basic blownups of the low res stuff, sometimes you can even see the scaling artifacts.
What the hell is all this? Can't they or won't they invest enough in staff and equipment to keep the quality up?
I will be dropping my subscription if this nonsense doesn't change soon. Never mind the 10 bucks, it simply is not worth my time to put up with the technical hassles and mediocre quality.

- Large database of content. The scope of content here is huge!
- Great diversity of sites and content. Many kinks to choose from.
- Organized by Site, Model, Kink/Category, Network, etc... Good search functions.
- Beautiful models - You'll probably find some of your favorites here.
- Loyalty "Locker" to keep your favorite scenes indefinitely.
- Many channels haven't been touched in years. Many get very few updates.
- Much of the old stuff doesn't compete with today's standards.
- They re-hash their content (IE: "Best of " series)
- The sort by rating seems to be rigged or not working properly.
- Overall scene quality and diversity seems to be waning over time.
While I've been a member for some time, I think I'm going to move on to greener pastures. While there is some great stuff here, Keep that in mind that channels dry up, and new Networks (like 21Naturals for instance) may appear that require a separate subscription.
While in the past I would have given this site a higher rating, they seem to be going downhill a bit.
The large library with some decent quality scenes are here and worth considering - just realize it may take some digging.
am I the only one who is thinking site is going to worse? this site used to be my favorite but over the course of last year, I saw that quality is going down. Not only number of anal scenes decreased but also quality of the girls doing them.
they use some American porn stars but only for soft content same for the good looking east European ones. only anal content is coming from really ugly girls. what happened to anal teen angels?
don't think I will renew when my membership expires :(
I usually never read user comments for the models on adult web sites but for some reason I started to read the ones on the 21 network because an awfully ignorant comment caught my eye one day. It is to be expected to read immature comments like "I'd like to jizz all over her tits" and stuff like that, but I found TONS of comments that are degrading the models, calling them ugly, whores, and stuff I'd rather not say. One comment read "look at this filthy whore, her breath reeks," another one read "typical fat ass american trash, what a whore" another one read "this bitch is so ugly it's a miracle they found a guy to do her," and I can go on and on. It simply blows my mind that a professional site like this doesn't have a moderator to delete the ignorant comments. How would these models feel if they happened to read those comments? Not very good. Makes the site seem careless to me, like they don't care about their models. I don't know why this bothers me so much but it does.
I noticed that in the picture set for each video there's WAY more cum than what they guy actually shot. Are the pictures touched up? A perfect example is Abbie from Anal Teen Angels (12/25/2011) In the picture set she has thick gooey cum piled on her pussy like whip cream on a sundae but in the video 90% of the cum ran down her side and there was hardly anything on her pussy. I noticed this countless times on every site on the network.
That as soon as I cancel my membership the server is now super S-L-O-W. 100 mbs per second internet speed but it's taking 6 minutes to dl a 180MB clip, which was taking 15-20 seconds before? Strange...
Was a member approx. 2 months prior to this review.
Beautiful girls, professionally captured on video and photo, making them look at their best.
Girls look sexy and glossy, but natural enough, to not make them look jaded, old, tired, or professional.
Very high spec video and photo.
A good variety of download and streaming options, including zipped photos.
No DRM, download limits, or regional discrimination.
A massive amount of content, that is also exclusive.
New updates across the network, although some sites are no longer doing this.
Given the amount of content, quite good navigation. The home pages look inviting.
Not too much abuse of the models.
The best network for mass produced porn at a bargain price that looks sensational and expensive.
Sadly, pre checked cross selling means the network cannot be trusted.
Home pages slowed down my computer considerably using internet explorer.
Mass produced homogeneous look. Too many photos and videos look the same.
Little build up, stripping, or teasing.
Too many tattoos and fake breasts.
Not enough ethnic, weight, or age diversity. Some models are painfully thin.
Models appear in my opinion, far too many times across the network, and that has worsened recently.
Some sites have stopped updating.
Not great customer support.
There was a special $9.95 discount available for a while from PU/TBP, which created a dilemma and even a crisis of conscience. Although I never thought I would subscribe to a site that had pre checked cross selling, I could either steal from them using free download forums, or steal from them legitimately at $9.95, and at that price it certainly is stealing.
I had subscribed to 21 Sextury before, but had not renewed after I had decided not to subscribe to sites using pre checked cross selling. For once I decided to bite the bullet and subscribe for one month, being very careful to cancel early, as renewals were $29.95, a more expensive rate than the usual PU/TBP discount. I must have downloaded about 80gb, and that was a small percentage of new updates since my last time there. I am happy to steal legitimately for this one time.
I have heard members complain of lack of customer support. I had one incident where I was locked out. I contacted customer support and received an automated reply. I was automatically given a new password because the other one was supposedly cracked and being used. This isn't the first site where this has happened. I am getting a lot of this nowadays.
The member pages did seem to slow my computer down a lot. Staying on site meant downloads were slower on IE, so to get higher speeds I left the site, after which download speeds went up. I found it virtually impossible to stream at any time of the day.
To give you an idea of their quality here are some of the picture sizes across the network : 3744x5616 1.5-3mb in size, 3456x5184 around 2mb in size, 3840x5760 2-3mb in size, 2832x4256 1-2mb in size. Videos are 1920x1080 and around 8160 kbps.
The type of model is usually young, white, and slim, with the focus on her for the most part, and there is thankfully not too much abuse, either physically or verbally. The video action starts almost straight away, with no build up or tease, and although you have that mass produced thing where ten photos all look the same, at least you have some glorious shots of the girls, and not too much close up gynaeclogical stuff.
I agree with the view that there are too many samey looking updates, with the same models doing the same thing, from the same angle, in the same lighting, but video and picture dimensions are of very high quality, and it all looks astonishingly professional. Even though there is a large amount of anal and lesbian, there are plenty of other types of vanilla material. One complaint is they seem to be using the same girls many times across the network, possibly just to bump up the number of updates.
For me they are the one network that not only mass produces quality porn that looks sensational, but also gets the balance right between sleaze, eroticism, innocence, and hardcore action. If you could go back four years and show one of these videos or picture sets to a porn fan, they would hardly believe it. You would think the network would charge around $50 for material of this quality. They aren't, so you have to put up with the mass produced look and other negatives. In my opinion they do it better than any other network.
If they didn't have pre checked cross selling I would be a member all the time, and would have little reason to join other sites or download for free. I shouldn't be saying this because I hate them. I hate them because they produce great stuff, but their cross selling means they are not to be trusted.

-fantastic girls, the best of europe (mainly Hungarian and Czech)
-the girls know each other very well usually, so there is a good connection
-some scenes have very true emotions
-huge amount of lez scenes
-some really nice life videos of the models
-girls like Sandy, Blue Angel, Sophie Moone, Katy Campbell have their own channel over there with regular updates
-the scenes are uninspiring, predictable
-girls wear often awkward dresses and have cheap looking makeups
-regular usage of big toys
-camera often swings around the girls and makes strange looking close ups
-lots of weird, pervert material like girls fighting in a fightclub, extreme stuff (s/m, bondage), lots of scenes focused on anal
Porn site that the greatest advantage are the girls that work for them and the filmmakers sometimes don´t interfere too much and let them enjoy, and that is the best they can do:) Otherwise it´s an usual porn stuff, nothing spectaular visually, in terms of new ideas, concepts
21Sextury has the best hardcore image resolution which is great for my 4k ultra high defintion 3820x2160 monitor that I have come across in an adult website, but I just wish they would include 10 times more images like about 1000 images per session. It may not be possible since it will take up a lot more size.
I know Brazzers offer about 1000 2460x1600 images per scene or session, but the quality is lower, so there is a compromise between quality and quantity.
@webmaster any change the website will offer more images per session?
There is no doubt that the 21sextury network is one of the best site on the web. However, when it comes to navigation it is totally a mess. Many broken links. Filtering the content is problematic. More importqnt is you cannot navigate hq content in your browser. If you want to see hq photos from a photo gallery of a model, you have to download ALL the hq pics in zip format. Most of the time I dont want to see all the photos but I just want to see some of them. This is very frustrating. Other than these problems site is great. Lastly, there is no need to ask about anything in the customer area because they wont answer you.

-Low intro price of $9.95 first month, recurring $29.95/monthly.
-Loads of attractive models.
-Wide variety of models. You get some content of your popular porn stars, and loads other girls as
-Fast download speeds. I get over 2MB/sec, which is close to my max download speed.
-Easy login. No captcha.
-No download limits.
-Long time before site timeout (I just got timed out. Lost my place. So this site is not as generous as some in site timeout.)
-Professionally shot videos. Good lighting, good colors, good focus, good sound control, etc.
-Lots of niches covered.
-Easy navigation. But there are so many attractive models, you get tired looking through the videos, trying to decide which to view.
-Lots of viewing options. Can stream, or download in different definitions.
-Zip file for photosets.
-Content is basically exclusive.
-The cons are basically minor.
-The $9.95 for first month is a great bargain for a great network. But renewing at $29.95/month
makes you wonder about renewing.
-There is a pre-checked cross-sell, but it was easy to see and uncheck.
-Initial signup was a little strange. I was rejected 4 times when I tried to use a Master card to sign up. I switched to a Visa card and was accepted the first time.
-For some videos, I get the message: "A plugin is needed to display this content". Most videos will
stream, but a few don't.
-The ultra high quality video files can be large. 1.4 GB for a runtime of 32 minutes.
-The search box returns can be buggy sometimes. You enter "Mia Malkova", who has 2 videos and 2
matching photosets, and the search returns, "Your search - Mia Malkova - did not match any documents." The search box is supposed to search the entire network, not just the site you are currently logged in to.
-The default filename is a random number.
The site/network is easy to use, once you get over how many models and videos and photosets there are. It should be a real pleasure going through the high quality contents of attractive women doing dirty sex. But the sheer magnitude of the contents-strangely-almost makes it seem like work.
Sites like X-Art and Diesel Access network, while far smaller, just seem easier to use, because,
psychologically, you know there's less material. And I like or appreciate the models at X-Art and
Diesel Access network more. The videos at those sites seem more intimate, the approach is more
glamcore/heartcore. I don't mean the 21SexTury videos are gonzo. But the models at 21Sextury appear more hardcore pros, while the models at the other two sites I mentioned just seem to give a softer, more real vibe to their performances.
-The best things about this network/site: A large number of lovely models. The videos are crystal
sharp, well focused, good lighting, professionally shot, good colors.
-What is unusual, is that the accompanying photosets are really high quality. The photos are taken by professional photographers who know what they are doing. So you have high quality photos of lovely young models in sexual situations.
Most of the sites focus on a particular niche. At other networks, there might be little attempt to focus the content. But this network makes an effort to supply content specific to the theme of the site.
-Can view the photos online, or download the photoset in a zip file.
-The photoset zip files give two options: normal, and high resolution definitions. (Older photosets
might have just a normal definition zip file).
-Photosets have 100+ photos per set.
-Can stream or download the videos.
-Video runtime averages 30+ minutes per video.
Older videos give you a choice of medium or high definition for download.
Newer videos give you more choices for definition for download:
Low quality H.264
Medium quality wmv
Medium quality H.264
High quality wmv
Ultra high quality wmv
Ultra high quality H.264
-You can download the entire video, or can select partial scenes from the video for download.
-With so many sites (you get access to 39 sites), and so many models, and so many videos and photosets to examine, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. Just bite the bullet, and keep looking, and you will almost certainly find models and videos and photosets that will appeal.
The introductory price of $9.95 for the first month (recurring at $29.95/month thereafter) makes this a real bargain. I don't know why I haven't tried this site before.
Some sites have poor preview pages, that show very little of what the site offers.
21sextury has a great preview pages.
The thumbnails show clearly what the models look like.
You have some really nice-looking models.
The videos look professionally shot.
You get to see short samples of the videos.
Reading the PU site reviews, scores range from 80s to 90s.
This is not directly in my comfort zone, as far as the type of sex action. I like a slower approach to sex. The sample videos I saw are like a bucking bronco at a rodeo.
Bu with a first month offer of $9.95, and a ton of gorgeous models, it's worth a try.
So I will sign up tomorrow.
OK. I signed up at 21sextury.
For some reason, the signup page rejected my Mastercard credit card 4 times.
I then tried a Visa card, and the signup page accepted that card.
The biller is Epoch.
After accepting my registration, I got a URL page that said, in part:
The first step of your purchase was successful.
Soon you'll receive a mail to your registered email address. Please click on the link you'll find inside the mail to finalize your registration.

I checked my email, and found 2 emails from Epoch or 21Sextury.
One email said:

At My Horny Asians (part of the 21sextury network), they advertise $9.95 Month.
You click on the hot link, and you get 3 options to sign up:
1. 1 year, no rebill, $9.95/month, billed at one installment of $119.40 at one time.
2. 1 month, rebill at $9.95 after 4th months. In the first four months you pay $19.95/month.
3. 3 month, rebill at $19.98/month. Recurring at $59.95 every 90 days.
So I don't see any option to sign up for $9.95 for the first month, whether it's one-time only, or $9.95 for first month, and a higher price for succeeding months.
I've seen a similar advertisement at another site, where they advertise $9.95/month, but it turns out, when you go to the signup page, that is the rate for a 1-year subscription.
Which seems slightly deceptive to me.
If they advertise $9.95/month, and at the signup page it turns out that $9.95/month is only available with a 1-year subscription, I wonder if that is legal.
There are supposed to be "Truth in advertising laws".
FTC Resources for Reporters
Truth in Advertising and Marketing
When consumers see or hear an advertisement, whether itís on the Internet, radio or television, or anywhere else, federal law says that ad must be truthful, not misleading, and, when appropriate, backed by scientific evidence. The Federal Trade Commission enforces these truth-in-advertising laws, and it applies the same standards no matter where an ad appears Ė in newspapers and magazines, online, in the mail, or on billboards or buses. The FTC looks especially closely at advertising claims that can affect consumersí health or their pocketbooks Ė claims about food, over-the-counter drugs, dietary supplements, alcohol, and tobacco and on conduct related to high-tech products and the Internet, such as the dissemination of spyware. The FTC also monitors and writes reports about ad industry practices regarding marketing of food, violent movies, music, and electronic games to children.
When the FTC finds a case of fraud perpetrated on consumers, the agency files actions in federal district court for immediate and permanent orders to stop scams; prevent fraudsters from perpetrating scams in the future; freeze their assets; and get compensation for victims.
But internet sites advertise $9.95 month, and then at the signup page, it turns out that only applies with a 1-year subscription.
So I guess it's misleading, but legal.
Edit01: If you use the PU link to 21sextury, you can join that network for $9.95 for the first month, recurring at $29.95 every 30 days.
The 21sextury network includes access to My Horny Asians. So there are sometimes work-arounds to getting a cheaper subscription price.
Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
-Gorgeous women (over 3000 models)
-Great sex variety (over 10,500 scenes, most exclusive)
-Great variety in women
-Files reasonably-sized and look great in 1080p
-At least 1 update per day
-No download limits
-Nonsensical file naming
-Navigation is a mixed bag
-Scene search could be better
-Very few "American" scenes in HD (not necessarily a con to me but could be for some)
Simply put, 21sextury knows how to make good porn but not how to distribute it.
-This site has more gorgeous women than several other sites combined. There is definitely a more Euro focus, but if you like models who are on the thinner side while still having breasts, then this is the place for you. Sometimes, a search of their "chubby" models can be humorous, since some of them could be considered slightly overweight at worst. They do have several of the more popular "American" models (i.e. Gianna Michaels, Faye Reagan) but they tend to be on the bonus sights which are typically only in 480 resolution.
-Though there is a bit of a Euro focus, there is still a lot of variety in the women. They have women ranging from super-thin to the ultra-voluptuous. Many of the women fall in the "athletic" body type, but there is variety in looks (be it hair, breasts, face, etc.) that prevents me from feeling like I am looking at a bunch of clones.
-Most of the videos since 2010 (maybe a little earlier) are 1080, and there is quite a bit of 720 from the years before that. The file sizes are quite reasonable, with a 20 minute video coming in around 900MB
-The videos are well-shot. They tend to set everything up so the model is the main focus, and keep the angles and positions varied throughout.
-There is great sexual variety on this site. Even without subscribing to 21sextreme, this site provides a wide array of sex, even into the kinky categories. Most scenes contain anal in some aspect, but there are a number of hardcore scenes that are vaginal-only. While this may be my opinion and sound odd, the anal is not often treated as "special," and by that I mean that they do not make it a big deal, say "here we go!" or have an upping of the ante to be more aggressive when anal happens; it is simply another hole. There are plenty of DP's and quite a few, though not as many, BGG scenes. If you are not in the mood for hardcore, there are plenty of lesbian and solo videos. NudeFightClub is a different take on the lesbian scenes, as there is only about 5-10 minutes of sex at the end with a majority of the video focusing on them rolling around and pulling each others' clothes off with a minimal degree of aggressiveness.
-The site provides at least one, but typically 2 updates per day.
-The site download speeds are good, there are no download limits, and there is no DRM attached to the file.
-The file names are all in some code that makes sense only to them. Renaming files is necessary for future reference. Personally, I found it easy to add downloaded scenes to my favorites to make sure I did not download them twice and/or could remember the name and model.
-The site navigation, while not horrible, still has plenty of room to improve. When you look at a model's scene history, they are in a seemingly random order and it can be annoying to find her most recent scenes. Sometimes filters do not reset even after you click the option, leave the page, and come back.
-While tied to the navigation, the scene search became an annoyance. Originally, they had over 100 options, as well as the ability to search just about anything and in full combination (anal scene, outdoors, long brown-haired model with trimmed bush and medium pear-shaped breasts could be searched and you would still have options) and then they removed it to more generic categories. I find it ironic that they went from more detailed to less, especially when they already had the details in the system.
-If you like the more traditional American porn, there are few scenes and fewer still in any kind of HD. This does not bother me, but anyone looking for this would be better served elsewhere.
All in all, I was a member for a month longer than originally planned and was still finding new and intriguing models and scenes. I have no reservations about joining again in the future, as the girls, sex, and presentation are all top notch. Even the cons are more annoyances that can easily be worked around and do not ruin the experience.
I give this site a solid recommendation and the rating will only increase as the navigation improves.
Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
-Variety of models, themes, and 'genres'
-Really hot girls
-Unfathomable amount of content (you won't scratch the surface in a month).
-HD Quality on many movies and photos
-DL Manager friendly (mostly)
-User interface is buggy
-Log ins time out after approx. 1 1/2 hours of inactivity (too short for my tastes)
-Renewal price expensive compared to initial discount.
-No download resume support with DL managers.
-General feel of the scenes is monotonous (see Bottom Line)
-File sizes are unlisted (hope you like surprises)
-Customer Service is a Joke
I'm a returning member to this site after being off it for a few years. The Bottom Line is that this is a site that I like the idea of more than I like the site itself. In other words, the site appeals to me when I'm not a member, but quickly bores me once I buy a membership.
That being said there's a lot to like about this site. It features some of the hottest girls in the European industry and a few familiar faces from the American (e.g. Tori Black, Samantha Ryan, etc.) The site is huge with a nice variety of niches to suit your needs. Many videos (and certainly about all of the one's released in the last few years) are full HD. Photo sets are zipped for download (which I still can't believe isn't a universal feature on adult sites). Updates are daily and are a good mix of genres.
The bad side is that despite the variety of niches, the scenes don't vary that much from each other. Granted that, to an extent, one anal scene has a lot in common with the others, each scene is practically the same setup. Their porn could benefit from an awareness of particular fantasies and situations, rather than just particular sex acts. While what you get is good for the PU discount on your first month, it's just not good enough to keep me around for another month for $29.
Lastly, the site has made some major improvements to its technical aspects since I was last a member, but its still lacking. For one, it's buggy: I'll sometimes select a filter to sort scenes or models by, only to return to browse other scenes to find that I can't remove the old filter. Likewise, when you view a model's profile, it will have a preview pic of four or five of her scenes. These pics are supposed to be paginated (i.e. there's a link just above them for you to go to the next page) but clicking on 'next' will just reload her profile. If you want to view all of her scenes, you have to click on a different, not-quite-as-visible link.
For another, the site lacks some basic features. Video links don't indicate their size, which is problematic when deciding which quality video to download. The website appears to log users out after only a couple hours unless the page is refreshed regularly. This is particularly frustrating when in the middle of downloading a large file because, while they have support for download managers, they do not appear to support resuming a download that has been interrupted (I'm using FDM, so, of course, your mileage may vary).
That being said, I do recommend giving this site a chance if you catch one of PU's discounts.
ADDENDUM 1: The problem with the site automatically logging you out is apparently a problem common with wireless connections: if you don't have a static IP, their system will intermittently identify your computer as a different user and will bump you out of the members area; while I understand the logic behind it, it keeps users from sharing their passwords, it's an inelegant solution that produces infuriating results. I did have some success using the Firefox addon "Reload Every" however, even that didn't completely avoid the problem.
Addendum 2: Since I've written this review, I've encountered 21sextury's less than astounding customer service. I found them a little rude and very unhelpful. In response to an issue I was having, their reply was essentially: 'well, the problem is on your end: You fix it'. The support request was then closed without further ado. When I tried to click on links that would allow me to re-open the request and ask for more information, none of them worked, they all just redirected me to their homepage.
Clearly, whoever runs their customer service needs some lessons in troubleshooting and customer relations. My experience was bad enough to reduce my score from 81 to 76
The site navigation has become a complete joke. If you go to a models page it lists her scenes in a completely random order. It used to always be in chronological order, but not anymore. For a model like Sandy with a few hundred scenes, it's impossible to find anything specific if you're looking for newer stuff. There are no sort options whatsoever. I submitted this issue at least a week ago, never heard anything.
Furthermore technical support is non-existent as has ALWAYS been the case. Sure you can submit problems like this but you're just wasting your time as no one will ever answer them. Their link for checking submitted problems is a fake and just sends you to the site homepage. As such I suspect the problem submissions page doesn't actually submit problems either. Their email address is worthless as they don't reply. It most likely goes to a mailbox no one ever checks.
Simply put as has always been the case they don't care one bit about customer support. However, at least in the past you could still find what you were looking for, now with content displayed randomly, in no specific order, you can't even do that for models with more than a small number of scenes.
Just logged in today and now I'm finding that when I click on a scene page the damn videos start streaming automatically. It's never done this before so I'm assuming this is another so called upgrade or improvement to the navigation?
21Sextury has released a new "network" called 21Naturals. Seems to follow PassionHD and similar in white light, low contrast style with more couples themed action. Why it had to be another package entirely and not just a site, beats me.
Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
A huge network featuring 39 sites covering a wide range of niches.
Over 10,000 scenes and more than 2600 models.
Almost everything since 2009 comes with stunning quality hd video and high resolution photos ranging from 4000 to 6000px on the long end.
Photos downloadable in zips in a choice of 2 sizes.
Latest videos come with a choice of 6 download options in h264 and wmv formats, a mobile option and 3 streaming options. Videos available as full scene or broken in to several parts.
Normally 1 to 2 new scenes per day across the network.
Excellent download speeds
Unbeatable value for money at only $9.95 for the first month with PU/TBP discount.
Billing by Epoch with no regional pricing
Watch out for the pre-checked cross sells at sign up
Price increases to $29.95 after the first month.
The different sites lack any real identity; they all look the same and use the same layout and navigation. It just feels like one big site in my opinion.
Unable to browse the high resolution photos online as they only come in zips.
File sizes not listed for zips or videos.
Some ridiculously large file sizes.
Personally I found the site layout and navigation extremely frustrating to use.
Very few new updates of interest to those of us who like solo content.
Iíll admit Iím probably not the typical 21Sextury subscriber since Iím not really interested in hardcore action or videos and since my preferred niche is generally softcore photo based sites much of the content here is way out of my comfort zone. However Iíve seen enough previews of their content on free sites over the years to know I should expect to find more than enough solo content on sites like Pix and Video and Club Sandy to keep me occupied for at least a month.
I did not like the navigation or layout of this network at all and found myself very frustrated trying to navigate around and find what I wanted. The first time I logged in I seemed to spend a couple of hours just aimlessly clicking around trying to figure out a way to navigate the sites I was interested in. There was a long list of scene filters down the left hand side of the screen which I couldnít get to work in Internet Explorer but later discovered they worked in Chrome so switched to that and managed to find a method for downloading my content. I was able to select a site (ie Pix and Video or Club Sandy) then check the ďsolo-masturbationĒ option and that brought up all the content I was interested in. About 9 or 10 days in to my membership the site seemed to undergo some kind of upgrade and those scene filters disappeared so I became frustrated again at having to find another method to navigate the content. The scene filters are still there but they only show up when you select ďscenesĒ which brings up a list of the entire network scenes. If you select an individual site such as Pix and Video which in itself has 2,841 scenes there is no option that I can see to search or filter those scenes within that individual site. I would just like to be able to select a site (i.e. Club Sandy or Pix and Video) and then select solo scenes within that site.
I also donít like the way the model index is displayed. I like to see the models name and photo but here you only get photos. You have to hover your mouse over the photos to find out the model info. When you select a model and see her scene list you then have to hover your mouse over the preview picture for every scene to find out which site it comes from which I find really irritating. Hovering your mouse on the scene preview picture can also bring up a series of preview captions but I found it a bit hit and miss whether those actually display. When I find a model like Sophie Moone or Sandy with the number of scenes running in to the hundreds spread over several pages it would nice to be able to filter the scenes also within the modelís page (i.e. select Sandy solo scenes).
Once I got past all my frustrations with the navigation I found they do have an amazing amount of content with archives dating back to 2003. Itís a real treasure trove for collectors of top Euro models like Eve Angel, Sandy, Sophie Moone and Sandra Shine all of whom Iíve collected for years. Almost every scene I saw comes with a video and photo set. The photo shoots are all professionally done and look consistently good throughout the site. Only downside is I found the file sizes of some of the high resolution photo sets too much for my connection to handle, often in the 600 to 800 MB size range. The first day I was on the site it took me the best part of an evening to download about 30 photo sets and when I checked the size of the folder it was over 12GB so I just deleted them all and replaced them with the standard 1280px photo sets. Personally I would prefer to have a decent mid-sized photo option around 2000px.
Overall I felt the same about this site as I did about X-Art, as a first time subscriber it was well worth a 1 month subscription to go through the archives but there are so few new updates of interest to me that I could not see myself keeping a recurring subscription or even returning anytime soon. As a fan of solo content I thought DDF Network was much better with a new solo scene added more or less daily to their 1-by-Day site whereas here youíre lucky to see 1 new solo scene per week. As a first time member I give it an 85 for the huge amount of content available, if I was a returning member I would probably rate it much lower due to lack of interesting new updates

Over view :
I was a member many many years ago, the site has changed allot since then. The site is huge and there are optional other sites & services to buy.
Toads Pro's :
The site is huge, and allot to choose from would take more then a month subscription to download all the movies and photo sets. Most Movies after 2010 come in HD Hi-Res. I was impressed with the older content, some going back to 2005 for those with Nostalgia in mind. There are movies from many well knowns before they were, and before surgeries. The discount price makes it worth a join up. Tons of new material this year alone. It will having you coming back for more each day as there is allot to look for and enjoy.
The photo's in hi-res are stunning and well done a huge plus for the site.
Nothing I hate more then crosschecked ads, the site lost 5 points from me alone for this annoyance at checkout. Models are gorgeous 99% of them are knock outs. There is 1% of some very unattractive stars that looked like they had not showered and were drugged out. I took offense to this personally as it look horrible. Luckily this was very rare but annoying. If you click on models you get pictures with no names and must hover to see the name. Very annoying on a site with a thousand porn stars on it. It would have not been bad but the search engine and search check box simply are not accurate. Making specific scenes or model searched time consuming and difficult. Site constantly tries to sell you to chat, and the search finds items for site options you have not paid for. Unfortunately you find out after clicking on a movie you think you can get and now can't. Well you can at additional costs. Annoying !!!
Great site large very large. The site makes more work or seems that way due to the size and some issues like poor search engine, no name models and broken links on older content, cross checked ad and selling more sites in their search engine and pop up chats cost the site 12 points really annoyed me.
The site has unique movies and sets, many stars that are long since retired are here a nice bonus if you are looking for a treat from the past.
The site focused allot on hardcore with it being maybe 40% of all content. Followed by Lez, and Solo. The look and feel are high tech, the few bugs I found do not make this a bad site. It is a very good site with some annoying aspects.
I would have given the site a perfect score without these annoyances. As it sits the site is very good, but just misses excellent marks.
Yes at a discount most definitely, but keep in mind cross check sale and pops up. And many additional site cost. At full price this site would annoy the hell out of me. If you want to sell items don't force them by crosscheck, pop up and sales in searches. I really wanted to give the site higher marks as I see many in PU gave it much higher then me. Why I respect the other reviews the annoying factor forced my hand at a very good rating. Join the site keep in mind these issues and have fun. I am hard on all my reviews , because it is my money. 21Sextury.com is a damn good site so don't let the annoyances keep you away, just keep them, in mind.
A note I had exempted from the review was spam.
I had noticed and increase in spam and thought nothing of it just set my filter. I then noticed it was adult oriented,upon more inspection I had used and email that had no spam at all and dated going back two days after I joined spam began. I can not say it is the site 100% but joining and then more adult spam on a seldom used email? Well you be the judge. Being I can not be 100% sure I did not change the score and only made mention here.
