Pros: +Beautiful European babes (most are very familiar)
+Exclusive content
+Some of the photography looks professional
+Zips (of “large” photos, but "large" varies)
+A few models have their own "Best Selection" pics at 2000px, and there are also 3000px in a main section, but see the con's and bottom line. (It's not very impressive.)
+60 video clips (yes, “clips” is the word) are mpgs. 49 are labeled “HDV,” which I assume is the “hi def” mpg format. They do look very clear, but see the con's.
+Navigation is pretty straightforward
Cons: -VERY slow server is possible, or just not all that fast.
-Photos: too often too much darkness/shadow.
-Gallery thumbs are too small.
-Galleries (thumbed lists of photosets by model) are sometimes disorganized
-Shoots broken into 2-6 smaller photosets (each with files numbered from 01, so compiling them is a pain)
-“Large” image size ranges from 1024 to 1280 to 1600px (but not many 1600’s)
-“Best Selection” 3000px photos is a rather meager collection of randomly chosen shots. Hyped in the visitor’s area, it rates highly for the “So What?” factor.
-Video shoots, like photo shoots, are piecemealed into 2 or more “clips,” which are too brief.
-Archives only by models or videos, and none have dates of publication
Bottom Line: 24kbps to download a 40MB video clip to take the better part of a half hour on a 20mbps connection then quits 20% of the way through? Then again, 63% of the way through? Then I went for a third clip, and it died in transit, too.

That was my first experience. Fortunately, after a few days, the speed was slowly getting up to 430Kbps. Still not great, but not awful.

Why not make ALL of the images available at 3000px, instead of doing this “Best Selection” shtick? As a subscriber, who paid $22.95, I would like to have the authority to choose what is "best" at that size.

And they should replace those teeny-tiny gallery thumbnails with something larger and easier on the eyes.

The site design is highly stylized and unique, and I think it looks rather attractive. And it’s all solo posing, with nary a plastic Danny in sight. So there are a few pros here, for sure, but not enough to recommend another PU who likes this kind of site to join.

Denner (233) What a great LOOKING site and what serious cons. Too Bad.
Even if most girls are well known to most of us there sure is a couple or more rare ones..
And only MPG in videos?
The quality in the preview video looks all right - and strangely enough I got almost 700 kb/sec when downloading - but that speed might only work at the preview-section...

And BTW, Drooler: are those videos of photoshoots??

Drooler (220) REPLY TO #1 - Denner :

The videos are "companions" of the photoshoots in content, but they're in different sections of the site (photos mostly through the models index).

The download speed difference might have to do with our respectively locations in relation to the site. We've seen this kind of thing before. I'll try asking them if they can fix that on my end, and if they do, I'll change the review. Might be a day or so as I'm in a time squeeze at the moment (life happening).

Monahan (42) This review brings back memories, and not fond ones, of the early days of what looked like great material on sites with lousy D/L speed. I'm spoiled these days and sites that get cheap on the delivery side of the business will have wasted their money building the content side because no one will buy, or if they do they won't stick around.

Drooler (220) REPLY TO #3 - Monahan :

Same here. Really, I now can't believe the patience I used to have. It was like "Click, go somewhere in the home to do a little something, come back, and get ready for slowly rendering pics from thumbs." I didn't even bother with zips, and forget about videos!

But now, with everything from the main conduits of the Internet to the RAM on my machine being so much better, I'm very happily spoiled. At least as happy as spoiled can be. ;)

Hey Denner,
FYI I'm now getting up to 430Kbps. I've changed the review. I still don't recommend the site though. I would if they'd do all of the photos at 3000px, did longer videos, and had things better organized and labeled.

Drooler (220) REPLY TO #6 - Denner :

$40 for a year! Shit. I got a year's subscription back in Nov. for twice that much. It does include the VIP pics and vids (mostly that's "toys added" -- but, you never know!).

I think their vids are pretty good. Some are kind of dull, but I like Aneta Smrhova, etc. And Marie P (Maria at LSG); she gets into doggy position and goes "woof-woof!" (Pant-pant.)

The pics are grainy sometimes :-(
And sometimes the cropping ("head scalping" would be more to the point) and that watermark are a big bother. But I thought $80 per year was pretty reasonable for a year-long shot at some goodies. And I rationalized: really 13 months since I'd been away, so $6.15 per. And they've got Lucy Lee! I just adore that girl.

Anyway, looks like you're on another trip into Candy Land. ;)

Well, buddy - just for your info - the 40 bucks is included the vip-thing.. see this:

And yes, this is not top of the class - videos nor photos - but for that price it's quite ok!

Drooler (220) REPLY TO #8 - Denner :

Yeah, I got the e-mail about this, too. Saw it soon after I'd written to you today.

Anyway, enjoy your $3.33 per month subscription. It really is incredibly low!

LSG - BTW: Yep, bro - I'll try to enjoy a whole year here - but after browsing a bit, I realize (and remember): Not very exiting and not much new under the sun.....
