Possible Future Sister Solo Model Site

Recently I logged on to the site and there was a poll concerning the possibility of creating a sister site of a single model, a Czech girl named Lexa (not to be confused with an earlier Canadian model named Lexy).

I am not too wild about spin-off sites, even if I love the original, as I do so strongly with InTheCrack. In this case, they are considering her because of positive member feedback and because they consider her one of their most attractive models. I have no problem with the latter; she is a raven-haired beauty with flawless skin and a body to die for (if looks could kill...). I mean really, if she alone was what decades of monitor technology come down to, then it would be a good thing.

My beef is with the former, as I don't really understand what all the feedback could be about, unless it is based solely on her looks. Again, she is gorgeous, and probably near the top of their models in that regard, but she is almost totally a softcore model. I am talking little, if any, masturbation, with some mild spreading, no toys, nothing nasty, and mostly just stripping and nude posing.

I originally joined the 'Crack for the action and the unique perspective on it, as much as for the eye candy of the models, so I am a little disappointed that they would consider a separate site for someone so unwilling to do what so many of their other models seem to have little trouble doing.

Any feedback about this from members, past and present, would be appreciated.

lk2fireone (194) I am not a member, but I love giving my opinions, even when I know little about what I'm saying.
I do like eye candy, and the tour pages of inthecrack has some lovely models.
If the owners start a sister site, they could charge separately for the new sister site, or make membership in the new sister site part of the basic membership for inthecrack. There is obviously additional expense for opening a new, separate site, but the amount of content for a new site would probably be small, and even if current/former members of inthecrack really liked the Czech girl named Lexa for her looks, it doesn't seem likely the new sister site, by itself, would generate enough revenue to pay for its costs. Especially in the current economic downturn, when porn revenues are supposed to be dropping, and even major sites are supposed to be hurting financially.
So I think the best approach would be to offer membership in the parent site, inthecrack, and the new site (call it Lexa, for simplicity), for the same basic fee. And then, if the new site does become popular (measured by membership hits or whatever), the owners could possibly consider raising the membership fee, instead of spinning the new site off as separate membership fee.
Am I just spinning my wheels, or am I saying anything useful? Not really sure.
But even if the main focus of the new Lexa site is Lexa, I would assume she would have "guest" models on the site, because that is what many solo model sites seem to do. And if the sister site increases the amount of content available for your viewing pleasure, as long as the membership fee is not increased, I don't know why members would object to the new site.
Sorry, I don't really understand what your objection is to: Is it the creation of a new site, because you think the model Lexa will appear less frequently on the old site? Or is it that you wouldn't mind a new sister site, if they chose a good-looking model that did hardcore action instead of the mainly softcore Lexa? Or is it something else?

Drooler (220) ik2fireone had a lot of thoughtful comments on Lexa, as she's called at the 'Crack. She has done hardcore, btw. A small sampling can be found at her page at SportyOne. And yes, she's known most often as Melisa; sometimes as Carrie Du Four.

Anyway, softcore does seem to be her main bread 'n butter, but I haven't been terribly thrilled with the way ITC has presented her. They just don't do poses and thigh-up pics of her amazing ass like the one of her at Twistys, or better yet at Stunners, standing at a post and looking back amorously with both cheeks in glorious bilateral symmetry.

The typical way ITC does all of the models is side angles, full body standing without a view of the girl's face, and all manner of closeups. They seem to do EVERYTHING but the kind of pics I'm after: You can at least see the girl's face; she's looking horny; the top of her head is all there; her butt is completely there and "evenly cheeked" and unwatermarked. (A tall order, I know!)

Lexa will probably look great at her own site through ITC, but I doubt I'd care much for it just the same.

Denner (233) Another PU who do not get the picture here.
ITC is in itself a unique site - with very fine content in a good variation of models - why do an extra solo site for one model - and maybe later others model...it may seem like a question of getting more customers for the company, only...instead of having the same material at ITC.
This feedback could be a trial - if it works - then other model could follow - and customers at ITC may want to spend extra bucks for this models new special site...

I think of the idea of opening a new sister site as a marketing tool, to increase interest in the site (with the hope that more members will join) and with the possibility that the new sister site might be a source of added revenue. If you look at met-art and metmodels, that is what was done, I believe. The main purpose of metmodels was to increase the revenues (money) that was paid by potential members of met-art. Maybe the owners/operators of met-art and metmodels can claim some artistic or intellectual reasons for the creation of metmodels, but I think the basic reason was just to make more money. There is no real reason for metmodels to exist separately except for marketing purposes: The two sites are the same, except that metmodels is a site with far less content and a much smaller amount of updates. You join metmodels only if you want to see the additional photo-sets that are not posted on met-art. Personally, I don't have the extra money to join both sites, so I spend my money at met-art, which is the much more valuable site because of the massive content and frequent updates.

I would rather them devote a separate site to a more hardcore-inclined model. If their intent is to attract customers who don't necessarily want to spend all their time looking through a macro lens then the current possibility of using Lexa makes sense, I just won't be joining.

When I filled out the poll, I had to look up her sets -- she currently has four -- as she was pretty forgettable as far as my favorite ITC models go. Yes, super hot, but content that is too boring for me to have remembered her. If they can make more money, good for them, hopefully it can contribute to the main site (as if needs any improvement! :) ).

Note to those who are concerned about Lexa not being hardcore enough.... your assessment could be somewhat accurate based on the 4 sets that are currently on inthecrack. There is some finger masturbation in these sets but it is not her forte. As with many girls any genuine masturbation action requires the right atmosphere and frame of mind to pull it off successfully. As she has become more comfortable with us she has somehow cleared this hurdle with some of our more recent as yet unreleased sets. You may not yet see it in her next few sets but some later ones she does use dildos and even has real orgasms. Additionally her personality really starts to shine in some of these as she gets over being shy about her broken English and she becomes really very charming. We may not see her peeing or using a speculum any time soon and we respect her for knowing her boundaries. You have to admit that the girl has great quality and integrity for not caving to pressure to perform certain acts. We actually like her for this. As for those hardcore sets she had previously done it was only done when she was young and inexperienced with productions telling her this is the only way she can make a decent go of it. She soon found that not to be the case and has regretted doing this ever since. We at inthecrack want no part of pressuring or convincing her that she will need to do certain content. Neither do we consider our most hardcore content to be the ultimate goal. With Lexa she is just plain gorgeous and sometimes just feasting your eyes on that beauty is pleasure enough.

As for the sister site, at this point it is only an idea that we wanted some feedback on. We're only considering it because we'll likely never tire of shooting Lexa and she really deserves to have her own site. It's one way we can shoot as much of her as we like without over saturating inthecrack with one model. However the only way it can happen is if it is financially feasible and inthecrack does not suffer because of it. Early indications are that it is not financially feasible and we'll likely keep adding her sets to inthecrack.

Another note of interest. Survey results indicate that a full 70% of members consider Lexa to be in our top 10 models. 20% consider her to be our number one most beautiful model. She is a goddess! Perhaps most appealing of all, she doesn't seem to know how beautiful she is. With any suggestion of this she will adamantly deny it and think you are oddly disillusioned.

I seriously doubt anyone would likely ever tire of shooting her! ;) And it's nice to see a brunette in the top 10 -- are there any redheads there too?

It sucks that her earlier hardcore was the result of pressure, as this is the cause of much irritation for fans when they see models do shit that they feel is just trendy or dumb (implants, tattoos, etc.). Well, whatever you do, keep bringing her, and other top models, back for more!
