Here's a letter I just sent ccBill within 20 minutes of joining MPL Studios. PU Sysadmin, there isn't really a forum here to discuss account management systems, so I'm dropping this on the related website in the hope that both companies will notice. CCbill is generally MUCH better than the other account managers, but lately, I've had a lot of problems with them.
Here's the letter.
I’ve been happy to use ccBill and have been trusting you as a billing provider for years. Check my email address and you will see a history that is as long as your business has existed. But lately, service has gotten so poor that I am uncertain if joining a site that uses ccBill is worth it.
Tonight I joined MPL Studios for the first time. Not only did ccBill generate a RANDOM password and username, which I hate enough to cancel subscriptions over, but the lsgmodels login pop-up prevented me from toggling back and forth from the ccbill username page to the login. When I finally opened ccBill in a different browser and was able to get the insane user name and password info, the MPL Studios site would not let me in. I can only assume that I exceeded some kind of login attempt limit imposed by you.
Look, you guys are among the better account administrators out there, but I recently cancelled my subscription to met-art because I attempted to log in on several occasions and was unable to because YOUR login servers were down. I cancelled a subscription to Watch 4 Beauty because the random password was soo damn difficult to deal with, I gave up.
As a 20 year IT professional, I understand the importance of security, etc. You are going to tell me something like “the host web site required...” Bullcrap. As a leading service provider, you are in a position to explain to the host that random passwords cause them to lose customers. And a lockout after a certain number of attempts should redirect me to YOUR site to reset the account, not leave me mad enough to cancel the account immediately. In the end, any web based service must satisfy two needs to be successful. It must be convenient and it must be reliable. Random passwords make your service incredibly inconvenient and the inability of a user in good standing to log in to a site he/she paid for makes your service unreliable.
PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES!!
And while you are at it, unlock my account on MPL Studios so I can use the account I JUST PAID FOR!
Now, after I wrote this letter, I went ahead and called ccBaill. They told me that MPL Studios will not allow them to reset passwords that get locked out and that only they can do it. So now I'm sitting here witha paid subscription I cannot use. I will be sneding a letter to MPL Studios, as well, and I have already cancelled my brand new subscription because no website should subject thier customers to this kind of nonsense.

The first thing that struck me about this site when I joined was how gorgeous their models are. You would be hard pressed to find any other site with more attractive models. The site is primarily a photo-set site, although they do have quite a few videos as well. Most of the videos are strip and masturbation, although they do have a few lesbian vids as well. The photo quality is very good to excellent overall, although some of the sets do suffer from less than top notch lighting. If you are a fan of Macy B from Met-Art, I have to point out that this site has her best and most explicit work. She is definitely one of my new favs. I joined with their current (as of Dec 2012) discount of $19.95 a month, which is well worth the price. No problems with site navigation or download speeds. They do not permit multi-threaded downloading, but thats not a problem for me, as I dont need the entire catalog.
A fair number of their models are somewhat shy, and do not do any explicit pussy photos. This applies more to the earlier than the recent models. Another minor quibble is that some of their videos are released in parts, each about 5 to 7 minutes long.
Gorgeous European girls posing nude! Mostly a photo site, but more video as of late. The discount price is a great deal.
MPL Studios is currently offering $19.95/month recurring.
Site says it's a limited time offer. This has been offered at this price before, but there's no way of telling how long this offer will last.
If you haven't been a member of this site before, and you like softcore teen photography in the style of Met-Art, you will probably like this site as well. High quality, glossy style softcore teen photos. They also have videos, with some that are HD. But the main draw is the photosets.
What a PITA! I'm usually obsessive about researching things but I dropped the ball on this one. I think I got myself locked out in less than 24 hours of my membership! The site owners are WAY too strict. I actually downloaded only 1 zip yet it appears they still locked me out anyway. I'm guessing simply looking at a lot of the sets is against their rules because I received an "Internal server error" message and now I'm looking at a blank browser. I already regret this site membership.

Limited search and sort options for such a large photo collection.
Photo set cover not included in the zip as they do at MET.
As to be expected with any site that has been around a number of years you will find the older content to have a lower maximum resolution and fewer download options. Earliest photos often max at 1024 or 1200px and oldest videos only 320x240.
MPL Studios is another one of those arty nude sites featuring a fine collection of 210 stunning young models over 90% of who originate from Russia and Ukraine. Although the ages are generally not given I would say the majority of them look 18 to early 20s so its really a site for fans of the skinny small to medium breasted Russian teen look. The photo collection is the main emphasis here with the photo sets outnumbering the videos by almost 10 to 1. Some of the most popular models here such as Alisa, Anya and Maria have an incredible amount of content with well over a hundred photo sets each.
The site’s navigation allows you to browse the collection by updates (year and month listing), a separate page for the videos or via the model directory. I have to admit I found the layout of the model directory a little odd. The models are spread over 18 pages and it seems to be in no particular order. There’s no option to sort the directory either alphabetically, by date added or by rating so if like me you like so go through the models alphabetically then the easiest way to browse the site is to select the model you want from the drop down menu in the search engine and from that models page you can browse through to the next model’s page in alphabetical order. There’s also a basic search function allowing you to search the models by country, hair colour, eye colour and breast type but quite honestly I found all the models beautiful here and just wanted to go through the collection and download the photo sets of every one of them. Those who are more selective might bemoan the lack of a more advanced search option allowing you to search the photos by type such as indoor/outdoor location, clothing/plain nude or even the ability to search content by a certain photographer.
The photography here is of a high standard and the photos always look sharp even at the highest 3000px resolution with good colour and excellent lighting and often feature the models in stunning outdoor locations. There’s a variety of shoots ranging from plain nude shoots to partially clothed and also some public flashing in city locations such as St. Petersberg which I really enjoyed.
The videos here are certainly more interesting and erotic than the usual “girl standing around being photographed” type of videos you get on these nude art sites. You’ll find some intimate masturbation scenes and some passionate two girl scenes in amongst the collection. The videos are generally around 5 to 6 minutes long and usually feature some soft background music but you can still generally hear the models moans and groans over the music.
The only other thing worth mentioning is that you also get access to free public live cam shows and if you like one of MPL’s most popular models Liliya there’s a link to join her solo site with a $10 discount.
Overall an excellent site for lovers of softcore nude photography which I thoroughly enjoyed and was tempted to score in the 90s but the higher than average price and annoying download limits and restrictions just took the edge off it slightly so I’ll settle for an 88.
Was a member approx. 5 months prior to this review.
- Superb models are top notch
- High production values
- Easy to navigate, uncluttered layout
- Classy feel to the site
- Would prefer another option or two concerning photo size.
- Did not see support for mass dowloading tools.
- Dowload speeds seemed to slow after a few sets.
After joining MPL Studios for the first time about 3-4 months ago, I can say that I am looking forward joining again, or am I? It's no secret that MPL is proud of their site via their pricing and with it being over $30.00 American currency many balk at doing so until content is fresh again. As is the case with many of us purveyors, the site added one of my favorite models who is now up to 4 sets after my expiration and that is a clear sign that they are updating frequently.
MPL Studios is of course, a site similar to Met Art in many ways, but of late they are on top due to booking some really hot models, namely Amiele, a fine young lady who has yet to appear on Met Art. The overall quality of the site is amazing. There just seems to be very little bad content on the site IMO, making surfing easier for those who want to avoid the usual additional fodder.
While Met Art still has better resolution on their picture sets, MPL is close enough to satisfy those who appreciate beautiful young models. The sites content is still building and give this site a year or two and they will be as good as any art nude and or softcore site around. The site is obviously not for those who seek hardcore porn, but the trade off is the high quality of babe, some which have very little content floating about on the web, like a blond jewel named Heather.
There videos are well done, better than Met Art and more revealing. They could still be better but overall they are quite satisfying. MPL Studio's search features are decant as well, but simply going down the list of models was a convenient way to find the best content for this user. You can also find hot models you grew up loving, like Svetlana who has over 50 sets. And they use backdrops to their feature offerings as good as anyone in the business.
I would like to see them up the pix count on some of their photography for some sets downloaded seemed distant. MPL has a high standard of presentation and they come off professional in every way. It's nice to see the rare combination of tasteful, yet explicit sets and vids. They currently have 140,000 plus images and close to 300 videos which seem to get better as they hatch.
One of the things I noticed the first go round was that while their stable of models was really good, they needed more. Well, it seems they read my mind and have since been adding more quality models to the fold. The models do not look rough in any way. They look happy, relaxed and that makes for some good stuff. Rumor is that the site pays their models well and concentrates on keeping fresh faces coming.
Download speeds were very good, but not great. They added a new set or video everyday, so you cannot complain there with the current standards out there. They feature the usual live streaming videos and their quality is above average if this is something you seek.
I feel certain you will enjoy your experience at this site if you love well done softcore.
Just joined - and it really looks like MPL - though SOMEWHAT similar to MetArt has much better/more erotic/more sexy videos...anybody care to reply on that? (it's my first time membership here, believe it or not).
More a couple of questions than comment, but too small to make a thread:
The videos here at MPL seems a lot more erotic than MetArt and others alike - only seen some trailers here and there - this is one site I do not recall being a member of - ever.
It LOOKS LIKE videos with more sexy ways - the posing and some - almost - masturbation - again in a completely different style than MetArt videos. Is that close to? - And even with more indoor than outdoor shoots? - maybe because MPL now name their shoots 'Studio Girls'.
It's a somewhat high price, so before I join: Can anyone give some more video-details here....Thanks!
MPL Studios just released its first "Collector's Cut" series of Anya. This is what they've been saying about it in the member's area:
"Each 3000 res photo series will be created using photos previously not published with the set's initial release.
These "held back" photos are not rejects. They were intentionally set aside for future release. Editing techniques have improved in the last two years as well so the timing is perfect to now release these older, previously unpublished photos at 3000 resolution, now our standard release size."
My point here is that they DO look like rejects, aka "outtakes." You see lovely Anya not at her best. She squints and frowns a lot. (The poodle mutt that appears as well in some of the pics seems more content than Anya does.) Out of the 60 pics in this first series, I kept only 22. And I'm quite a fan.
Hopefully, future "cuts" will be better, but we'll see.

-Behind The Scenes and Postcard series
-3000 pixels max
-No download manager support
There is something special about MPL Studios that most other artistic nude websites fail to capture. The first thing I notice is how happy the models are in the photoshoots, big smiles and lots of joyful faces in most shoots. The next thing I noticed is how quite a few of the shots move away from pure nude model shots towards to the artistic side of the female body. This is shown in the bodyscape series where the camera places the body as if it was a landscape to be photographed.
Tease factor is generally quite good, most photosets will avoid extreme exposure and instead focus on amazing poses, great face shots, simpler views and sometimes the “less is more” concept – which works wonders. Some clothing, but there is more clothing in the postcard series or behind the scenes sets. The models will be present in a variety of series including videos. Videos are broken into two groups, explicit and sensual, good to see a split but they are often poorly assigned.
Set location is quite varied, outdoor and indoor, old buildings, feature walls, water, bedding etc. The sets aren’t bad in size either, 50-80 images typically. What makes the sets much more impressive is the variety of the poses and/or the variety of the camera angles and focus. There are a few exceptions but most sets contain many varied shots and models all seem to be good at posing and talking to the camera.
The models on the site are also quite high quality, with mostly Russian, Caucasian and light framed models. Many will be familiar to FEMJOY and Met-Art members but with some exclusives. The great thing about the photo quality is that the models feel real, there is no touchup work, you can see the skin texture, you can see imperfections and everything feels genuine, aside from some blurry sets the quality is good. The maximum quality is 3000px on the longest size, in general this means about 6-7megapixels. This size is starting to get on the low size compared to other sites, but because of the quality and real nature of the photos it has an edge on the competition.
Site navigation needs some work; you cannot for instance head back to the main page of a gallery once you are browsing it, it’s similar to hege-art. All images default at 600px and you must click on the smaller text sizes for larger resolutions. The website didn’t support net transport for downloads, most sets aren’t large and firefox manages most downloads well enough, no resume. Update counts are at least 1 a day, recently one or two days a week will have two updates which is like a great bonus (other sites could learn from). This helps bring up the value, MPL studios is not cheap, it’s roughly twice the price of competing sites (hegre-art, errotica-archives, met-models) for the same set / picture amount. However I think the content is definitely worth the price of admission, purely to get the genuine, artistic, engaging photo series that other sites don’t have. Will be resubscribing.

+High quality photos and videos of Lilya, a very sexy Russian girl
+Zips for all galleries
+154 galleries; about half are exclusive to this site alone
+Photos at least 2000 pixels on the long end; in many galleries, they go up to 3000
+Lilya's "diary" has 27 more exclusive galleries, though they only go up to 1200px
+Videos available in wmv (720x540), avi (720x528), QuickTime mov (640x480), and iPod (320x240)
-Downloads are OK. They climb into the 340kbps range.
+A decent price if you're a true fan
-Site no longer updates
-Only 25 video postings in all; 4 fewer than that if you discount the "part 2's" of video shoots
-About half of the photo galleries are also found at MPL Studios
-Lilya's "diary" is only photographs. No big deal, but the term "diary" is a bit off, IMHO.
Pro or Con? Depends on you:
+/- 13 galleries are "Postcards" which may not have any nudity, but candid shots have their appeal
+/- 8 galleries are "Shoot Day" (BTS) style, and again the same comment as with "Postcards"
I took a liking to Lilya pretty quickly when I first saw her at MPL Studios. She's very sexy and photogenic. There's a chameleon-like quality about her, not only in her personal changes such as hair color and style, but also in how well she works in the variety of settings you'll find here. She can look elegant or simple, classy or frumpy cute.
She's got an infectious smile and a fabulous ass. Her tits are small -- and real.
The videos have music tracks. "Body Heat" is an appealing blend of classical guitar and Lilya exercising naked on the floor; the rear-end views are gratifying! "Ask Lilya" has her answering "fan mail," speaking in heavily-accented English and obviously reading a script from a laptop. I'm not complaining; she's very cute!
But I didn't care for the amount of content overlap with MPL Studios. I suppose you could say it's good for "pure Lilya" fans who would never join MPL, which at this time has a couple handfuls of newer galleries that aren't at Sweet-Lilya. Do such fans exist?
Myself, I got enough stuff to beef up my Lilya collection, which from MPL alone was rather small. Now I've got 5 times as much as before!
Looks a bit better than the old updates page, has the members area also changed? Navigation for models looks better but is this just the tour or is the members changed? I was hoping for a launch discount but no luck.
I join them couple of times over the years, I love the site plenty of nice looking girls but their security & restrictions is getting too much. In fact I recently join and unable to even get in without getting their security alert page. I canceled the account.
No download manager allowed (Security Alert page stated 1 hour ban);

# Mpl studios mostly offers nude, and or fashion style photography (behind the scenes, lifetyle, postcards from the edge); softcore shoots though-are left to be desired. As a member, I would like to see more models in sexy evening dresses and lingerie (although they do show models in swimsuits)

IF you like nudes, and really demand ultra sharp photos. Mpl studios is the nude site is the go-to site for this type. There is not a lot of softened light shooting as the other nude sites as Mpl studios likes dramatic lighting in some of their sets. But the non softened light makes for hi rez photos...
I am a member of two nude sites this month and I am overwhelmed with the sheer amount of material... Mpl has a lot of material.. and I haven' gotten throuhg %20 of it yet...
Mpl studios is also a great site for ultra sharp vids; freeze frames from these vids could pass as hi rez photos! Their is lesbian action, models walking on the beach, or primping for you in sexy lingerie. These are some of the most erotic vids...They have about 14 masterbation vids ans well as 18 behind the scenes, and interview vids..
MPls Studios vids are great... I would put them in the top five vid sites-- though they are not the top one or two--but probably third due to their realtively small collection size (concerning the ones in HDTV)....but these are a great collection of vids that vid lovers should not deprive themselves of..the non HDTV are still hi rez..If you have hi speed, then go for it..
Before joining, I read through MPL's tour and they kept pushing had this model named Anya. I did'nt know why they didn't just focus on other models. But once I joined I went to her portfolio first...the photography is top notch.. well framed and composed.. and Anya..man she is the nude model of nude models...she made me gasp when I looked at her walking along the beach in one of her photoshoots..before I knew it..Anya had me blowing my rocks off to her portfolio two times the first day. I guess you could say am a believer in Anya and nude lovers should see a portfolio such as hers.. I haven't been through her massive collection yet..I also like Maria's protfolio..and Lilya's, Alisa's... I definately would say that I need severla months to go through their selection..Like I said I am a member of two nude sites this month and their is just no time for it all...
Mpl studios currently offers 28 in HDTV and 110 vids in hi rez. Russia: about 160 models;London: 6 models; Budapest: 7 models; Prague: 6 models.
Anya has 100 photoshoots 50-60 pics each..
I would recomend Mpl studios for membership. I would say that Mpl is a nude site worth looking into if you are a nude lover..
