Pros: *Excellent collection of models
*Very well taken pictures of a very high quality
*Videos are of a decent quality (and no DRM 'orrible crap that it is...)
*The all immportant .zip downloads :-)
*Part of a tried and tested network, including 3 MASSIVE bonus sites and some lesser sized ones
Cons: ?What's with the way .zips are d/loaded, what was wrong with the old 'right click/save as'???
?The music in the video's is... Erm... Yer, not good...
?personal experience suggests Bandwidth limitations (could just be high usage though)
?Limitations on simultaneous downloads (a network thing)
Bottom Line: I had a nice surprise when I signed up for the three main other sites (EuroBabez, Sexy-Babes and DreamBabes) which, as far as I'm concerned were value for money alone (although dated in look, navigation and, well, a redress has been promised, which should be nice) Babelicious is a promising new site, it takes time to build up to the size and scale of the likes of Twisty's, but the rest of the network covers this, and if the network is dragged up to the same standards as this site, Twisty's will be in trouble. As a site in it's own right this is worth a look, when you take into account the rest of the bonuses this site is an absolute must for those who are after a good variety of good quality porn...

Drooler (220) I agree that the way they do zips is a pain. Because it's scripted in some way, it adds about 4 extra steps to the process if you use IE7, unless you can figure out which security features to turn off. The answer is not transparent to me, nor am sure that I want to switch them off anyway, just for this site.

And it's not an issue at all with sites that use the conventional "Right click ... Save As ..." method.

Hi Gonzo
Thanks for the review.

Regarding the zip files. We have them like that on this site, and not in the others, because you have 3 different sizes of zip files to choose from. Thats why we decided on a drop down list. We COULD have regular links for "right click - save as" but we couldn't figure how to add them to the pages that would fit in the designs nicely. If you can think of a way that would work we are all ears :)

Music.. yes, we cannot please everybody on this front, so we have decided that 90% of the videos wont have any at all.. just the sweet sounds of the girls moaning!

Site Speed.. Although oure site is nowhere near slow, sometimes at busy periods the site doesn't run as fast as we would like. We are growing very rapidly and we are waiting on a new server to be installed that should speeed things up considerably. One thing I would like to mention to any prospective members, I've never had a download go slower that 500kbps which is in my opinion very good.

Thanks again for the review Gonzo, don't forget to leave your comments in our members area - we always love to hear from our members!

Best regards

Cheers for the prompt and thorough reply :-)

I can't remember the specific site, and I only recall seeing it on one, but instead of offering multiple links on every page they've set everything to a defualt 'medium setting' and every user gets a settings page where they can customize how they experience the site (images can be opened in new/same window, in a html page or image only, movie and zip downloads can be set at maximum, stuff like that) which I liked, I got on with it well, what others thought of it I do not know, but it seemed like a good idea, and it worked flawlessly... Although the zip's could be downloadable from the model page, under each image for the set you could have a small S,M,L for the 'right click save as' method (I am a fan of this method, had you guessed...) ;-)

Regarding download speeds, I'm currently downloading from your site at 343kbps, which is quite good, earlier it was floating between 120-140 though, and I know from previous experience that I'll get something from another site simultaneously at 900kbps to 1mbps without it affecting the Babelicious download, I can also only download 2 files simultaneously form your site, yet still download from others, and still at a higher rate. The speed isn't my main gripe, it's the dual download only, and this affects the sister sites too, if I'm downloading 2 files from one I can't download from another til they stop, but then again, I may just be being greedy here... :-D

While I'm at it, what's with the massive emphasis on ratings? I'm neither for or against it, but I do pretty much ignore it and look for myself regardless, but you guys seem to have dedicated quite a lot of space and page size to this subject...

Hey Gonzo.. I thought I would follow up to your comments on the download speed. We have just purchased a new server for Babelicious. The speeds should be much better now, but please let me know. I want it as fast as possible for everybody :D

(with regards to the personal settings page - thats been something ive wanted to introduce so you can be sure that it will happen - just right now we are busy working on the new version of sexy-babes!)

Hey Gonzo

I was just browsing a few reviews and messages, and saw yours about only being able to download 2 files at a time - I've had that problem before with certain specific sites.
If you don't use it already, I really recommend to use FDM - Free Download Manager. Just google it and you should get a link to download it. That way, even on the slower or more restrictive download sites you can just put your FDM to work downloading through the night while you're asleep! I always use it nowadays, most sites allow it. Hope this is of help.
Regards
Davit
