||- A resounding yes! The photos have been added to the video site and are zipped.
- Viv Thomas, to me, is probably one of the top 3 producers/photographers of Euro porn.
- Right at 900 video scenes
- Videos are good, not great, 640 high end, 2000+ bitrate, looks good on my monitor. There is talk of HD videos coming soon.
- Pictures are still a bit smallish, 1280 max, but are zipped and there is talk of 1600-2000 high end in the future.
- Excellent download speeds
- Navigation works perfectly, even with the added photo sets. I use the model search, click model, page opens has videos here, pictures there, click the one you want and there you go.
- Photo sets date back to 2004.
- Updates have 14 updates this month, today is the 15th, so either a video or photo set each day.
||- Things are going good when I start nitpicking on the first con, would like to see the HD videos and higher resolution photos happen.
- Some of the photo sets are small in amount of photos, some sets are as small as 45 photos.
- Photo sets are non-exclusive, but not all of them, there are some exclusives and though non-exclusive, they were shot by Viv, he has just leased them out to others. A few of the videos are now non-exclusive, Videobox has recently added several of Viv's DVDs. Videos also can be gotten from Teen Dreams as bonus videos, but are of lesser quality, sub-1000 bitrates.
||One of my older external drives crashed last year and I lost 85 GB of Viv videos because of it. Luckily for me, I had separated my favorite models videos from his site onto another newer drive, but still I had planned to return. I don't know when the zipped photo sets were added, but that was a huge surprise to me.
The catch and where a bit of confusion comes in, the photo updates here are not the same as the photo updates on Viv's photo site, BUT the archives are very similar. At this point though, the pictures are icing on the cake.
The videos, we talk a lot about how hardcore porn has lost something. Usually the word "eroticism" comes up, and I do believe Viv does eroticism better than any producer in the world.
Some of the things we see in current hardcore porn, men spitting on the women, slapping, and the almost always facial. You will see facials in Viv's videos, but no more often than you will see cumshot to the boobs, to the back/butt, to the stomach. A lot of the b/g scenes end in whatever position they are in, meaning you don't have to sit through a guy standing up and beating himself off to cum on the girl's face. If they are in doggy, the guy pulls out and cums on her back or butt.
There is no smacking, no spitting.
Viv's greatest strength in my opinion is his ability to get the best out of the female models. One can see it now with the model Cindy Hope, Cindy is a very cute model, but she has never shown that much that would lift her to superstar status. Her newest video for Viv, has lifted her to superstar status. She always seemed to be going through the motions, now she looks to be enjoying herself. I could even go back to Eve Angel's career before Viv, she was a cute average model. Viv had her in a few b/g scenes, then put her with other girls only or solo and she won an AVN award for best lesbian scene.
I will keep every video I download from this site on its own WD Passport hard drive and won't delete them. That is how good the videos here are.
Here are some numbers direct from the members area. Just to show the high number of top Euro models he has on this site and how much content of each.
Eve Angel - 30 videos, 32 photo sets
Peaches - 29 videos, 37 picture sets
Mia Stone - 8 Videos, 21 photo sets
The criminally underrated Sylvia Laurent - 10 videos, 18 photo sets
Sandra Shine 25 videos, 25 photo sets
Now to throw the huge staggering blow. The lovely, innocent but oh so dirty Jo, Monica Sweet, 72 videos and 63 photo sets!
Not to worry, these are just 6 or 7 of my favorites, there are over 700 more models on here. I think though you can see just how much content there is by looking at those I focused on.
At this point, with all of the same ol', same ol', sites out there, I can recommend this site as highly as any site on the internet. Oh and there is a nice mix of b/g, g/g and solo. The g/g scenes are probably the most believable on the internet. Highly recommended.
