Pros: - Without question, the finest collection of models
- Content wants to be exclusive, but the older sets are widely available, I assume those were originally owned by Viv, but he licensed out the older sets
- Pictures come in zips
- Navigation is very easy to use
- Download speeds are not really a huge part here, since it is mostly average resolution pictures
- Good enough price at $19.95
- Viv's experience and professionalism as a photographer/producer really shows
Cons: - Well to start with, if you're coming here for videos, don't. The videos here are trailers, some interviews, though I will say that some of the trailers are 3-5 minutes and are pretty good.
- The picture quality can be frustrating. The biggest pictures available on the site are 1280 high end
- Zip file pictures are only 1024 high end
Bottom Line: I will start by saying that Viv Thomas' work is my favorite on the internet. His taste in models, the way he photographs them, the fetishes he touches upon are the same as mine.

This site to me is the best site for pictures only. I know the resolution isn't up there with Met-Art, but I much prefer Viv's models and the style of his sets. The girls almost always start out dressed in the picture sets. Pantyhose is usually involved if they have a skirt on. I guess what I'm trying to say is he likes the girls to look classy before getting dirty.

Unlike most sites though that the models are all dressed up on to start a set, they do get dirty here.

One of the best parts about this site is the constant flow of new material involving the top tier Euro models. The settings range from a tropical mansion, which I'm guessing is the Viv mansion, to in the bedroom.

There is an active forum on the site that the models do stop by on. Viv is fairly active on it as well and talks very candidly in his posts.

All of your favorite Euro models are here, except one for me and that is Aneta Keys. Besides that one, Eve Angel, Sandra Shine, Sophie Moone, even Sandy from Club Sandy, Nella, and by now you are getting my drift. Wish the resolution was higher, but I have been looking over it for 6 months. So, it isn't too big of a hindrance for me.

Viv is the Hugh Hefner of Euro porn and for any fan of legs, butts, pantyhose, beautiful faces and settings, I highly recommend it!

Drooler (220) I'd definitely recommend this site for someone who's never joined. Last I looked they had an even cheaper 7-day price. While it isn't always true, Viv Thomas's stuff tends to give a good emphasis on ass. There are treasures to be found here of Eve Angel, Mia Stone, Sandy (Zsanett Ergerhazi), and LOTS more.

I remember the first time I joined (back when 1280px was something to hoot and howl over) and I was like "Wow, fucking WOW!"

Now, I'm almost totally burned out on the 1280px limit there. He actually had a small number of sets that were, I think 1600px (of Kristina Banks, for instance). And they'd had a poll asking what the max pic size should be. This was maybe last year (?). 1600px was one of the choices.

Anyway, plus ca shittin' change. I wish they'd at least go to 1600px! But nooooo ...

And about licensing, some of the fairly newer content is showing up elsewhere, too, of Trisha Brill, Vendula, Zara and others at Europornstars and in at least 2500px.

Hey Drooler,

Agree, I have to think if I was a photographer, my pictures would come out looking something like Viv's because of his love of the lower body, including legs.

Some of the newer content also shows up on Teen Dreams in better resolution. One that stands out to me is the Eve/Mona Lisa set on a couch. The TD set is 1900 resolution high end and has over 200 pictures in it, the Viv set only has about 80 pictures in it. He does seem though to keep many of the solo sets exclusive to his site. From what I can tell, he most likely has the 3 newest sets of Eve solo, and I haven't seen those anywhere. I can agree too about the resolution. I wish he would bump it up a notch or two. I think one of the big selling points for me is the continuity of the site. You never hear of a model doing one set, then refusing to work with him. And because of that, you do get the idea that he gets the best out of the models, the big smiles, seductive looks, etc..

I have been a member here off and on now since I think 2003, and admit that I've let the membership recur way more than I should, just because I know he will add a few sets that I have never seen and will want. It is almost like he has a very loyal following of fans and his main goal is to keep them happy with new content of their favorites.

Talk to you later

Wittyguy (95) I'd agree that Viv's site is more focused on the pics but, like the other reply noted, I don't understand why he doesn't go larger. A lot of Viv's stuff also appears on other sites like ATKgalleria, Twistys, Sexy-babes and other mega-sites which means if other PU users have been there they've probably seen a lot of his material already. I would note that Viv doesn't seem to release full photo sets to some of these sites so you'll probably find the complete sets at his site. For my money, Viv would have to boost his video quantity and quality to score in the 90's but as a picture lover his site is still pretty good.

Hey Wittyguy,

I've found that the best place to find the full Viv sets are on Teen Dreams. I think I noted that in a reply to Drooler, a set that has Eve Angel and Mona Lisa, on Viv's site it has around 80 pictures in it, on Teen Dreams it has 220 or so. My understanding of that was that Viv considers his sets to have a flow to them. Meaning, you won't see nearly the same exact pose two or three times in the same set.

As for the scoring system. I probably should start a thread in the forum area about that, since we've had a lot of members that question scores. One thing I will note here is always check the reviewers average score. My average site that I've reviewed is 84.7, in comparison yours is 82.1 and Drooler's is 78.3. I generally rate sites higher and will, as I said, start a thread to discuss that since I have several trust ratings that say, "Trusted but his scores are too high". Be sure to check out the thread in the forum, maybe other members could also chime in about it.

Hey Exotics, not trying to bust you on your score for this one. Just stating my preferences is all. I probably have some scores that are too high/low for others too. I like your idea about the forum post as I've found some members who do a decent job of writing reviews but consistently score too high in my book. When I give them trust ratings I usually note that as part of my comment.

As for the complete sets thing, I think the "completeness" of a set depends on his contract or at least that is my guess. If he's doing a shoot for, say, Teen Dreams he'll probably give out the full set. With his own material, my guess is that he reserves some of the content he leases out to others for his own site.

Hey Wittyguy, I meant to reply back to this but got seriously caught in work and let a lot of replies pile up.

I didn't think you were picking on my score. I posted that thread mainly because a lot of members don't notice that I rarely rank a site very low unless it is terrible or a gimmick or rip-off.

I like to call my scoring system a curved one. Really bad porn pun there. Since I usually won't review a site that is below a 70, instead posting a comment to warn others, my ratings range between 70-100, so 85 is the middle. I know that Toadsith also talked about this. I had reviewed other things as well like he was talking with netflix. Mine usually pertain to weight lifting equipment, where we gave "dumbbells" as ratings, 1-5. So, the larger scoring scale gives me some problems.

Just wanted to clear that up so you didn't think I took it personally.
