||*A lot of models - known and unknown (to me). You'll easily find your favorites and be introduced to new favorites.
*High-Quality Photography - primary focus of the site. Somewhere between Playboy and Penthouse on how "raunchy" they get with most of it. Image quality is way better than Playboy Cyber Club on all counts.
*A lot of the models are really gorgeous.
*Can save images individually or download sets.
*Variety of videos types/themes (Playboy style Pan&Scan, Interviews, Masturbation, Toys, Girl-Girl)
*Retro! Some of the photographers have been doing this for quite some time so there are shots of some models from the past during their prime. I've not found a site that has a back catalog like this.
*Some really great masturbation scenes. Brea Bennett, Cody Milo, and Carli Banks are favorites.
*They offer a few download options for the videos depending on your bandwidth and codec preference on many videos.
*Plenty to see and regularly updated.
||*I believe they were transitioning to a new site design which may be in place now, but at the time it made for some challenging navigation and some really dated designs.
*Videos cover the same time spectrum that the images do - so it can be hit or miss with the quality.
*Videos are very Playboy-esque - the female body is a temple to be worshiped kind of thing. Music in all of them; wipes, fades and transitions. Too much "art" for my tastes.
*Video Themes are kinda gimmicky and lead to some duplicates. A video called "X" can actually be a 5 minute segment of a longer video called "Y". You learn the patterns.
*Audio, specifically on the masturbation videos, would switch channels on me depending on where the model was in respect to the camera (left only, right only, left & right) Totally could be an issue rooted in my PC - I couldn't track it down, though.
||It's from the J. Stephen Hicks Studios, so this is nude photography-centric. At one time that would have been right up my alley, but I've aged to the point where "pictures of naked girls," sadly, just doesn't do for me what it used to. I do admire the skill of these photographers, though. These are fantastic images. My primary reason for joining this site was because I knew they had an "extreme" section where some of these gorgeous ladies would be doing a lot more naughty things on video.
I've found that photography-centric sites all seem to have the same approach to videography. They put in so much "artsy" stuff that it ruins it for me. I can really do without a music track. I'm also not a fan of the pan&scan her body and intersect the transitions with a lot of Star Wars style wipes, fades, and zooms. I'm probably hard to please in these regards.
If photography is an interest for you (Playboy, Mystique, Penthouse) - this is more than worth your time and money even for an extended subscription. There is a lot to look at and appreciate.
The videos are worth a month, but even the ones I saved to my hard drive ended up getting deleted rather quickly. Even with a poor connection like mine - I was done & canceled well before my subscription was due to renew. I'm clearly in a video phase.
