I've been a member of this site 5 or 6 times over the years and keep forgetting to write a review. It keeps drawing me back.
Here's the good and bad (absolutely no ugly).
This is a site with photography that ranks up there with the best in this genre...perhaps THE best. The photo sets and models themselves are generally spectacular. In fact, there are a few exclusive models here that are the absolute pinnacle of beautiful female form. Translation: They have perfect, perfect bodies, pretty faces and bright eyes. The models are 18 to mid-20s, fit, clean, totally natural, mostly clean shaven and just drop-dead gorgeous. Very few piercings and next to no tattoos. The more recent models are very open. I've never used this word in a review before. Delicious.
Lets talk about content:
The site has been around since 2004. I can't get a good read on sets, but it is at least 3000 or so, plus about a video or two a week for at least the last few years. Of course the older sets tend to be a little more "observing a naked girl in the woods" but for the past few years, the shooting formula has been damn near perfect. Great mix of full body and close-ups in various poses. Sets and outdoor locations are great. Interaction is great. Lighting is consistently terrific. Posing is great. Nothing awkward or uncomfortable anywhere.
The videos are sometimes of the photo shoots and sometimes shot separately on the same set. The girls start naked or disrobe and are usually undressed by the halfway point. Any close-ups, etc are reserved for the last few minutes of the video and there is rarely any masturbation. These are not bad videos, but they are not terribly exciting unless you really want to see how a particular model moves. They come in multiple sizes and formats from standard definition (272p) to 1080p. Older ones are in 720p.
Just a reminder that this is soft core. There is no guy/girl sex, no toys, no insertions, etc., with maybe a little bit of masturbation and few girl/girl sets just touching and leaning. (If you want that in this format, go over to Joymii.) At Femjoy, you just get beautiful unobstructed view.
So..what's not to like? Well...I know the webmasters are working on improvements, but there are a few things that keep me from rating this site right up there with the best. I know they will be reading this so forgive me if I direct some of my points to them.
First, the navigation is a little off. there are a few too many clicks to get where you want to be and not enough new-window options. When you click on a set from the home or updates page, a new window opens for that set and then all actions happen in that window. Click to see images, and a limited number of images appear in a gallery. Click on "show all" (nice pun, I guess) and all of the images appear. What, are we still in dial-up times? Just show me ALL the images when I ask to see ALL images, please. This doesn't sound like much, I know, but it is a little odd to navigate through. ..Then there is selecting a picture. When you click on an image from a gallery, it opens up in the same window that the gallery of images was in. Click back and you are taken back to the top of the gallery page regardless of where the image was that you clicked on. This may also seem like a little thing but when looking through many images, it is unnerving. What SHOULD happen is that each set should open a window/tab and each image within that set should open a window/tab. Or better yet, the whole thing should be user selectable like several of the other top-tier websites are. To their credit, the navigation options once looking at an image are pretty good (larger image, next, previous and back to gallery).
And my last little nitpick is with the file sizes. There are three image size choices: "Quickview Edition" images are 800k wide. "Collectors Edition" images are 1200k wide and "Poster-Size Edition" images are 4500-5500k wide. Wait, what? (Insert captain Piccard meme here) Who the fuck looks at 800k images anymore? Even iPhones are 960 pixels wide/tall! My smallest computer screen is 1900 pixels wide. So the two smallest images sizes are waaaay too small to fill my computer screen and the only other option involves 5500 pixel, 2 meg images and a zip file that is a third of a gig! There is just something seriously outdated with this thinking. I appreciate the larger images, but they are a little too large to be loaded and kept exclusively. What is needed is a 1200, a 2000 and a max resolution (4500+) image size. I have been told they are working on fixing this and will happily report when it is fixed.
Bottom line? If you are into soft core and like young, OMG beautiful girls, don't hesitate. Just join this site. This is one of the few sites that I would recommend for an annual membership because of the terrific soft core content. There is enough here to keep you entertained for months.
I've been on the site for about a week. It seems that the more you download, the slower things get. Up to about 1.5 GB of photos I was seeing download speeds for 2-3 MB/sec. After that the speed begins to decrease. At about 3 GB of photos the speed is down to about 200 KB/sec. Beyond that its slower still. You must wait 1-2 days before the system resets. I've seen this cycle repeat 4 times now. The slowest speed I've seen is 100 KB/sec.

Just got the email offer this morning in my spam box.
It's been a long time since I was a member of femjoy (I perfer Metart, or MPL Studios).
But for the price, it's worth thinking about a join.
I'm afraid they've gone too far for us - successive scenes with anal is just too much. We've cancelled membership. A real shame, this was a nice site, but they've obviously decided to change their target audience, and we're not part of it.

- Very attractive models
- The site corporate style with brightly colored videos is refreshing
- Stunningly beautiful films, the "joy" in the title is well chosen
- All exclusive content, I think.
- Very quick and reliable downloads, always maxes out my internet connection (around 2 MBytes/sec).
- Multiple sizes and resolutions of photos & videos, although I only ever download the highest. Recent videos are true HD.
- Earlier material had highest video resolution of 720p, but very good quality. EDIT - see below, all available at 1080 now.
- Little variety of models - almost all white, slim, 18 - 25.
- I was going to say that so far Joymii has held the line against including ugly mysoginistic male-oriented material like anal. Sadly, they have just cracked, and are increasing the amount
- As someone else said, the photos don't quite match up
- Well known models, but all seem to be under different names which is irritating
Joymii is another very good, genuine glamcore/heartcore site. They update pretty much every other day, not quite alternative photo sets & videos, but more or less. Most videos have accompanying photo sets. It features a mixture of BG, GG and solo material, a fairly even mix these days, all shot with the same bright sunny style.
It doesn't have quite the artistic quality and variety of, say, SexArt, but within its limitations, the films are beautiful to watch. There is some fairly wild sex, but it is all bright and happy looking. My wife generally prefers the BG films here to those on SexArt, this site was her favourite. It is simply reliably very good, with very few duds - I kind of prefer the riskier peaks & troughs of SexArt, but I liked both. We had planned on renewing, but have decided to cancel due to the inceasing amount of anal on the site. These sites need to understand that while anal, dp and similar gross-out stuff might appeal to men on their own, it is a HUGE turnoff for most women, and therefore to most couples. Having much of it will drive the site straight down to mainstream porn, it seems really silly of these sites to rob themselves of their USP.
The content is obviously of the highest quality, the models are beautiful etc... With that said, I feel they could use some more diversity( as is the case with other similar sites)
Now, to the tech aspect of things, it's getting ugly. They have a timeout link limit at less than an hour. They don't support multiple connexions on the download manager, and many, many times, downloads seem to stop out of the blue. Whatsmore, their server doesn't support resuming downloads, so this only makes things worse.
Download speeds also vary greatly. Sometimes they are good, sometimes they are low.
Also, another thing that comes handy to me when using IDM, it's that it has a feature where it dates the file downloaded with the timestamp of the server, so I have date info on all the files without having to put it in the filename. Well, this works on every site EXCEPT Joymii.
So, while the site is very good content-wise, it makes life difficult with regard to the downloads.
I've been checking back their updates page lately and oh boy it doesn't look that good... :
- models' quality drop (at least for me)
- less and less videos
- site is so slow (am I the only one from Europe having issues?)
I mainly joined this site thanks to the discount price. Just thought I would throw that in as a reason for other webmasters to take the discount route.
I'm still a little iffy on the whole heartcore genre, but I do like the content better here than on the other heartcore sites. I have a few of the same complaints I had with Sex Art, I don't understand why solo sets are included, unless this model is extremely good at masturbation, dirty talk and has a lot of charisma. Eve Angel didn't do the talk at all, but she set a standard very few solo models reach, thanks to her ability to communicate with body movements and eye contact with the camera. The other is more minor complaint and it is the girl/girl content. I don't understand why one of these heartcore sites haven't tried 100% boy/girl. Maybe one has and I haven't found it yet?
Either way, for me, I liked it much better than Sex Art. Will review it over the next week or two once I've had a chance to see it all.
Is there anyone a current member or recent member that could tell me if this site is like X-Art or Sex-Art. I really liked X-Art and this site kind of looks a little bit like it, but I don't want to waste any money. Thanks in advance.
Continuing the saga of regional pricing on this site...
It seems to persist, by way of the $25 site being 25 in Europe. BUT with the new TBP discount - I received it in the PU newsletter and it seems the same when clicking through from the site - the $15 offer seems to apply even in the UK.
This is a great site - for me it slightly wins out over it's closest competitor, X-Art - and worth joining at this price.
Even though I am not currently a member there, I often check the home page at Femjoy to see if any of my favorite models have a new photoset or vid. Yesterday I saw something I've never seen before on the updates page at Femjoy--a model with a toy! The new girl Sandy E had a toy in her pussy. Not big or realistic, but still a toy. A trend I'd like to see continue, as long as they don't do it in every set.
I watch porn with my girlfriend, and this is her favorite site.
The things i can add from my experience:
They are adding new models, some ebony, some asian, all beautiful and thatīs wonderfull because it adds some extra flavor.
The only thing that i donīt like is the audio on the movies. In a few of them you can hear people talking behind cameras, walking or even running on the set. Thatīs dissapointing because the overall quality itīs amazing.

This site is a bit of a departure for me - I'm usually into softcore photography but every so often I have a hankering for a bit more action. However, I prefer something a little more... arty is the wrong word, because we're still talking about smut here - but perhaps balanced. There are a few of these contemporary, tasteful (again, previous comment applies) sites around now, such as X Art - I went for Joymii since at least to me it somehow seemed to have a bit more character, and focused less on the 18-21 models, I prefer a broader range.
A roundup of the content: this is hardcore/midcore content; a mixture of solo, GG and GB scenes. Each scene has one movie update - generally about 10 minutes, available in a few formats up to 720p - and one photo update, consisting approx 50-70 pics, a good online viewer and 4 sizes of zips up to 5K or so. Updates come fairly consistently at about 2 pairs per week, and there are approx 150 of each, featuring perhaps 70 models. The models are both US and European, with many popular girls - the former including Holly Michaels, Marie Macray, Dani Daniels, Shyla Jennings, Karlie Montana, Celeste Star (a favourite); the latter including Caprice, Eufrat, Ariel, Connie (Josephine here, another favourite).
The site itself is generally good - although note it has regional pricing; $20=£20 does not compute. It's odd since sister site Femjoy doesn't seem to; either way, I was somehow able to circumvent that - I have no idea how! The form just suddenly decided to offer me the $ price. Once joined up, the site has a clean, contemporary design; which actually hides a few shortcomings. It's a bit too AJAX-heavy (pages which change without the actual URL changing), which leads to glitchy back button behaviour and the like. Links time out so if you have a page open for a while you need to refresh for the download link to work. The filtering is also quite lacking; the only real choices being 'Popular' and '2-3 some' - the latter including B/G and G/G material, which for some folk is quite a big distinction; it could do with a few more options there.
What sets this site apart, though, is the quality of the videos. Although they don't go up to 1080p, they are really sharp; but over and above that, they are just so well done. Gone are the gaudy colours of most porn; these are well lit, bright, but muted and subtle. The videos usually start off with a little music; it's fairly unobtrusive and fades out after a few minutes. The camera angles are often creative and interesting; lending a bit more context to the scene; showing closeups where necessary - but not necessarily of the obvious bits, but better for it!
The locations too are good - I don't mean to come across all metrosexual, but I find the interiors (not *those* interiors) in most porn really offputting; all those chintzy bedspreads, or faux-deluxe regency-type interiors... here we have bright, spacious rooms, nice contemporary furniture, lots of natural light. And similarly, although the models tend to be naked more often than not, where they do undress the clothes are nice, casual and flattering - nothing tacky or faux-glam.
None of which gets in the way of the explicitness - there's plenty to see, but the hardcore is done to make both partners seem to genuinely equally enjoy it; if you had a likeminded partner, this is something that's easily couples-friendly to watch. And on top of all that, they seem to be getting better at it; the newer videos have more character, and although they still use toys, they are relying less on them than the earlier videos.
On the other hand, the photos, although I can't quite put my finger on it, are missing something. Technically they are good - the same locations, models etc, sharp pictures, well-lit and high resolution. But somehow they don't have the same atmosphere; they don't have the same creative angles, selective focus and closeups that the videos do. For instance, I like a bit of context, something that helps put myself in the scene - in one video the model is masturbating while on a steamy phone call, it's very exciting; the corresponding picture set features the same model, outfit, location; but no phone, and mainly just posing for the camera. The photos are obviously shot separately from the videos; I just feel they could could bring a bit more to them. But again, they are technically good and I found plenty to keep.
This, then, is an easy one to score, agreeing with both TBP and the previous reviewers; although let down on a few small fronts, I really like the content, and I may well be a convert to the genre. Suspect I shall find myself at Orgasms.xxx sometime soon!

- exclusive content
- (very) good looking models
- regular updates
- each pictures set has its corresponding movie
- crystal-clear HD vids (WMV / MOV)
- handheld encodes
- up to 5MP pictures in excellent quality
- navigation could be improved
- models "bios" are lacking real portraits and a proper index
joymii is one of the first attempts at making a X-Art look-a-like alternative, by the makers of Femjoy.
What is it, in a few words ? Hardcore done in an artistic, intimate way. Read : no closeups in your face all the time, no constant speak...
So let's get to the point : is it a success ?
Don't get me wrong, this is a very good site with very few flaws.
The main drawback is : as of today, it is yet another X-Art site, nothing more, nothing less.
So if you like the aforementioned site, then you will most likely enjoy this one.
The other "issue", for me, is the navigation. It is quite complete yet sketchy. You can't :
- filter the updates per month, year
- easily find a model without browsing all of them
What are the differences from its main competitor you'd ask ?
It's a pro site, content-speaking (not that X-Art isn't, far from that) but the atmosphere seems rather dull in comparison and the setting is often "dry".
Of course not everyone looks for that kind of ambiance, so you might enjoy this one better in the end.
It's also a pro site, design-speaking. And there, it surpasses its main competitor with few more features, like a more evolved rating system.
In the end, is it worth your money ?
If you like what you see as a guest on the site, then yes, you'll like what's inside as the only thing lacking is the download feature.

- Overall solid photography and production values and a clean but simple layout.
- Attractive, youthful, slender models, mostly euro with some porn star cross overs.
- Good download speeds, with a nice variance of photo file sizes.
- Apps are offered for IPhone and Android.
- All material is exclusive.
- Large Model Data base.
- The search engine for models consists of A to Z or models name making it time consuming to searh the site in an efficient way.
-Some of their better models are shot in a very softcore way. Little use of lingere and too many straight birthday suits in some sets.
- Mild decline in the quality of recent models.
- Watch for upsell when joining, CCBill was slow to respond to issues.
FEMJOY is an art nude site which caters to those who like young, generally pretty and natural women. It is softcore, so no insertions other than an occasional finger tip nor toy play and all of the material is exclusive. The current price for the site is 19.95 recurring which is a bargain if this type of site interests you and especially if you've never been a member.
You have several photo formats which is nice and all pictures within the last four years are high resolution. The zip files offered are small, standard (my preference) and large and the download speeds were above average for me.
I personally ran into to no download limits but I do not have a mass downloader. Still, I was able to pop out up to 20 plus gallery downloads per session with no trouble.
FEMJOY uses what I call mildly deceptive advertising where they want you to see the more and not the less. They claim up to 3 updates daily and up to 2 new videos per week. Well, I saw that happen just once in both categories. FEMJOY has a wide selection of models, up to 750. There has been a ton of brunettes and not enough blonde's in recent months and in my humble opinion, they haven't had those knock out main stay models since the last time I joined.
To clarify, I waited a solid two plus years between memberships and it took that long for me to justify joining again from simply following their updates and models.
The videos offer what is more or less a flash player and formats for windows are 640 x 360 or 1280 x 720. The smaller files were adequate for my tastes. They offer the same exact sizes for Quicktime and have an Ipod feature as well and even a small playstation portable. Also added are apps for Android and my preferred IPhone. but I found neither compelling enough to use or go through the mild learning curve associated.
The quality of the videos are good with nice production values but they are softcore for sure and some seem repetitive, especially if shot by the same person. The photo's are sharp and clear with not too much fodder in the sets, but like the videos and one of my main gripes, look the same when certain photo artists are used.
Some of the artists just have the same old style over and over and the same backdrops as well which gets boring quick to a true photo enthusiast. But quality is there which brings me to my main gripe and one that frustrated me greatly and dropped my rating several points.
The search features are deplorable for such a quality site. Forget typing in blond or red hair and blue eyes and such for it isn't there. And when you go to the models section your eyes will cross trying to pick out models that float your boat.
It is very clunky and difficult to pick through for the photos are not always reflective of the models you will see upon clicking on them. It took me the entire allotted membership time to dig out the models and zip files and vids I wanted to keep and this is just unacceptable for a site that should have a search feature that matches the overall quality of their productions.
You can search models A to Z or by name and we all know models names change from site to site and that is another gripe towards better model identification. The main stay models they do have, unfortunately are more PG, meaning no views of the real goods, save a shadow or two.
Another negative was when I joined it took three hours before I could log on which was a major turnoff, but all sites generally come with one glitch, so no big deal. However, it took CCBill five business days to respond to a complaint and had I been down that whole time, they would have been extremely slow to repsond to the issue.
That is not necessarily a problem of the FEMJOY staff who uses their services. They also offer EPOCH as a way to pay as well. There is one cross or upsell to watch for when signing up.
Overall, the quality of the models and photography and such is well above average, but in my opinion this site trails Met Art and especially MPL a site I now think sets the pace for art nude erotic photography in this niche.
I recommend FEMJOY for those interested in these types of sites and feel it is a very good site. I am a very picky purveyor and I found quality but not without some serious work and the aforementioned crossed eyes.
One telling thing for me which makes it clear it'll be another two years before I revisit was that in the entire month of the membership, save two days left, I downloaded 10 of 63 photo updates, which shows a slight decline in quality per average. I dowloaded the majority of 19 models content.
That to me is a great value but I expected more in that I waited over two years between memberships. If this makes any sense, I was both a satisifed customer that was a little disappointed at the same time and I absolutely detested how hard it was to search the models for the material I covet.

This site has some of the best looking women, as well the shear amount of pictures and video is why I signed up for a year long membership. Their updates are on a daily basis and that was another reason for my sign up.
The site design and the throttling:
There needs to be a search ability meaning like most sites you can search hair color / Breast size and so on. Have not found that here.
Throttling is insane, Meaning just surfing the site can cause the throttling to kick in and ban you for 3 Hours. Plus downloading does the same thing.
I understand the need to throttle people on downloads but not the site activity.
Suggestion to the site if they read this is to add a meter to the site on each users profile so the user can see how much data has been used and slow it down.
I have a very fast internet connection and its frustrating to get that your limit message even while looking at pictures on the site or streaming video.
If you sign be prepared to go extremely slow and do not spend to much time on the site or you will get limited and since there is so much content is almost impossible to review without getting limited.
The Pictures and videos are really nice
Update. Sent email to webmaster concerning the throttling and they came back and said they are reviewing the throttling and possibly going to remove the restrictions. But the other statement that got me was leeching and their statement the throttle is set to keep people from leeching their site.
But the issue with that is I'm paying for access so leeching is not a true statement if it was free then I understand but this is a paid site.
