||- Older content is lower quality, and some scenes are quite short
- Some scenes that are both taped and photographed lose overall focus (see bottom line)
- Some models are not that hot, or just too hairy
- There is occasional camera work that some may find annoying, but it's not that bad
- Almost exclusively French, though site is offered in several languages (English, French, German, Japanese), so France-haters might dislike it
- Condom use may be a turnoff to some
||Ah, France: the women, the wine, the food...the porn? Yes, I had my doubts about an almost purely French site, especially considering I prefer German and British content when I think of European porn. It is not that I do not like the French; I do, but I think of them as purveyors of more erotic material, rather than the crazy, but bland, style of perverted arts we produce ad nauseam here in the U.S. But this is exactly what I like about this site.
It is neither a pure closeup/gynecological style nor a beautiful, but boring, glamour photography one. Instead it is a mix of hot young, almost all French, girls who do only what they are comfortable doing, never what they feel they "have" to do. Fortunately that covers a lot of ground, from the soft through the hard, and lots in between, including quite a bit of fisting and some peeing (if you are looking for any of this).
These girls seem to be more on the amateur side, though not so much that they have no clue as to what they are doing, or how to do it well and make it look good. Some are no doubt professionals, but there are few implants or models who sport the typical American porn look. There are a few tattoos, but mostly on the guys (maybe three or four very lucky Frenchman who get to really enjoy all these models), and there are more piercings than other modifications. Quite a few are hairy, even by our demanding standards, but it really didn't bother me because of the sheer enthusiasm they show towards their work.
My major complaint is the whole video versus photography approach. Both are captured quite well, but the overlap can be annoying. For example, a photoshoot with a bunch of pics of the cameraman/woman, or a video with the camera flash going off every few seconds. Somewhere in the mix of things the thrill is gone and I am too distracted by the other camera to fully enjoy the videos or pics. This hurt the videos more than the pics, since you can just delete the pics with the camera in them, but I think it keeps quite a few videos from being really good.
Others have cited the camera work, but I like it since it means videos that are actually edited (sometimes with music, instead of just plain porn "dialogue") and not just a single 20 minute take. They also use two or three cameras in some scenes, and it makes for some interesting and enjoyable videos.
There really is a loving and consensual passion to the content here, particularly the hardcore scenes (straight or lesbo). It is something that seems to be missing from most American porn of late, and I forgot how much more I could enjoy things when the sex is an act of physical love and not one of physical degradation. It makes the models more relaxed and comfortable in what they are doing, and to me that is truly erotic.
