Pros: - Tons of content.
- Very cute models.
- Stays within the teeny niche.
- *Some* of the video content is top notch.
- Newer pics are decent at 800x1200, and there are quite a few, to say the least.
Cons: - What the hell does Seventeen mean?
- Way ! too expensive for us yanks. 40+ buckaroos.
- Choices are great, but this site overwhelms you with choices, causing navigational havoc. See BL.
- Pic size could (should) go up a notch. Older pics are just too small for the jaded collector of 2008.
- No zips
- "High" quality option for vid downloads not so high, at least for the vids I checked. In fact, at 604 kbps, it looks dismal at full screen.
- Pages take too long to load because of all the fancy but useless pic-frame borders and variously-colored backgrounds.
Bottom Line: I was turned down at first by this site but they took me on my second try. So here goes:

I'm disappointed. Main problem: the site needs Organization. Categories are a good thing, but this place is category mayhem. There are 35+ picture-gallery categories, and a few of these are split into "gallery" and "archive". Some categories have separate numbered archives. In the vid section (which is called Seventeen Cinema [I think] and requires another log-in) there are 42 categories, or "labels". The vids are taken from full-length DVDs which you can order and are not entities unto themselves. Most vids offer high and low downloads. Some offer "full", which means highest quality: 2100 kbps, 720X540. These vids look great.

For pic collectors like Willy, who has short term memory loss in spades, all these categories are too much: blondes, brunettes, redheads, wet teens, shaved teens, kinky teens, schoolgirls, highschool girls, dirty teens, anal teens, left-handed teens, vertically-challenged teens, teens who read Proust.... you get the idea. There are some great sets and tons of cute models, but while I'm browsing and clicking I keep wondering what I might be missing someplace else. There is a model directory, but each name I clicked on merely took me to a set of four or five pics: not thumbs leading to sets or vids, just pictures! What's the point of a directory if it doesn't direct you to the model's content?

I'm running low on characters. BL: save your dough, yanks.

Drooler (218) Thanks for this review. It is by far the best of the three posted to date. I've thought of joining this site, but the relatively small pic sizes (by today's standards), slow loads, poor navigation, and category overload -- not to mention the price of admission to all that -- are not what I want to experience.

Categories are supposed to help us find what we want more quickly, so there can't be too many. With 35+ here, they loose their value. It's kinda like inflation.

Hi Drooler,

Thanks for the reply. When we do a review we sort of harp on the negatives, that's part and parcel of the whole thing; but when all is said and done, if the people behind this site were to take all the material they have and present it in a more accessible fashion, say, the way ATK does, then they would have one of the best sites going. Higher-res pics would be a good move - a necessary move now that it's 08, in my opinion - as would a slight drop in price, though that might be a problem only for those of us in the states.

To be truthful, I prefer the European approach to presenting beautiful young women, and the hardcore material, vid-wise I mean, comes across as being far less mysogynistic, and just less sleezy in general, compared to American porn. If Club Seventeen could manage to offer at least some of their DVDs in full, via download, now that would easily justify the 46 US dollars.

We do harp on the negatives, and it is part and parcel since we'd like things to be better. We're squeaky wheels, but not just to make noise.

I also generally prefer the European approach, also in nude photography. It often has a more refined sense of style that I prefer. Sometimes the American approach is a refreshing and more familiar-feeling change, but it takes the right sites to do it. Danni.com is an example, though it depends on the photographer.

Doug62 (Disabled) For the meaning of the name Seventeen
This site has been around for years and if you check their website faqs they mention the international legal age of 18, well years ago that was not the case while the age here was still 18 the legal age elsewhere was different and varied in fact years ago you would not have been able to join the site because their legal age would have been younger then our legal age years ago.
Since this is a Dutch site their legal age years ago was either seventeen or younger hence the name of the site kind of like the 18Eighteen website . In fact if they had started today instead of years ago they probably would have been called Club Eighteen because of the legal age there.

Wittyguy (95) Thanks for the review on this site; good review and funny by the way. I had joined years ago and was recently thinking about checking it out again. Sounds like the site has kept on going strong. I'll probably pass at the moment given the smallish pic sizes and premium pricing.

P.S. Congrats on winning the $100 raffle, you beat me out (I got the $50). Who knew ordinary Joe's writing about porn could make it big ;)

Doug!

Sorry I neglected to thank you for your explanation of the site's name! I'm surprised they have stuck with the name.
