Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: TBP/PU discount offered
Independent payment processor, easy cancellation
Huge archive with over 10 years of updates online, 622 models, 1400+ videos and 157,000+ photos
Good variety of solo, lesbian and hardcore
Updated daily 7 days a week, usually photo set one day and video the next.
Most recent photo sets (since November 2009) can be browsed in 2 sizes, 533 x 800px and 1600 x 2400px. Older sets have 4 size options maxing at 1280px.

Choice of download options for the videos usually 640x360 wmv and mp4 plus an hd 1280x720 mp4 for the latest updates. Streaming also available
File sizes and run times displayed for videos
Good download speeds
Cons: Regional pricing
Some non exclusive content
Recent video updates donít always come with an HD option
Site design/navigation seems rather basic for such a large site with limited search capabilities.
Small thumbnail previews in photo galleries
No zip downloads for the smaller photo size might be a con for some (if anyone still uses a dial up connection and 12 inch CRT monitor)
Models virtually all white Caucasian with no ethnic diversity.
Many models donít have any background info
Bottom Line: I got tempted back here for my first visit in over 5 years due to a recent half price special offer. As a fan of solo glamour photo content I found this a great site back in 2006 with the photo quality as good as or better than most other sites around at that time but today however I do feel the quality is lagging a little behind other similar sites. It wasnít until the latter end of 2009 that the photos finally got an upgrade in size to 2400 pixel resolution and whilst these photos look good itís still below what many other sites are offering these days.

The navigation is fairly basic here with the usual options to browse the content by updates calendar, photos, videos or an A-Z model index. You then have further categories such as lesbian, boy-girl, solo girl, busty big tits, leg sex etc and then each photo set or video comes with a further range of clickable tags to help you find other similar type content. One thing that does stand out here is the huge amount of lesbian content, in fact the lesbian category under videos is much bigger than any of the other categories.

Within the collection of over 600 models here you will find many of the big name Euro models, names like Eve Angel, Sandra Shine, Sophie Moone, Sandy, Peaches and Jo and they all have an absolute shed load of content here. Whilst Iíve loved all these models and always collected their photo sets theyíve been around virtually ever since I first got the internet nearly 10 years ago so for me Iím afraid a boredom factor started creeping in as I worked my way through the collection. I found myself waiting for some hot new fresh young faces to come along and excite me but for me it never really happened.

The video collection here has come a long way since my last subscription and now includes over 250 videos in HD quality. A new video is added every other day and these are usually full length scenes between 20-30 minutes long. This guy has been making porn movies for years and certainly knows what heís doing, camera work, lighting and everything are all top notch. Watching some of the movies here kind of reminded me of how porn used to be before the internet came along where you actually have a bit of a story line and see the models attempting to do a bit of acting before they get down to action. I also found the movies to be a lot more erotic and passionate than much of the gonzo style porn around these days.

Overall a fine site and well worth a monthís subscription Fans of lesbian erotica will surely love it here as will those who enjoy seeing the models dressed up in stockings and high heels. In the glamour niche personally I prefer the style and creativity of Holly Randall and the selection of fresh young models and ethnic diversity at Digital Desire. As I primarily joined here for the photos the fact around 80-90% of what I downloaded had a maximum resolution of 1280px was also somewhat disappointing.

rearadmiral (304) Great review! I joined using the Halloween special they had and I'm impressed too. I'd never heard of Viv Thomas, probably because I don't collect a lot of European porn, but this is a seriously good site. I agree that the site is big enough that it needs better navigation.

Thanks for the feedback rearadmiral and glad to hear you're enjoying the site. I just hope my review didn't sound too negative because it truely is a great site but for me personally after spending a month at Young Legal Porn discovering some hot new talent like Gloria and Stasha and then coming back here it just felt a little dated and stale with the bulk of the content being of a group of models who seem to have been around forever. Take the current babe of the month Suzie Carina for example, there was a time when i was excited to find new content of a hot fresh young teen named Suzie Carina but i'm sure that must have been like 9 or 10 years ago. But anyway that's just my personal take on the site which is what PU is all about and i'm sure there are plenty of people who can't get enough of those top Euro models who would score the site in the 90s.

Itís funny how much alike our reactions to this site are and that the reasons for those reactions are almost identical. Like you, Iím coming off of a Young Legal Porn membership and that membership really changed porn for me. I donít mean to sound like Iím exaggerating because Iím not. Iíve been buying online porn for a long time and YLP was like a breath of fresh air. (A minor difference for me is that my favourite models are Gloria and Ivana.) I was thinking of joining Videobox again but I just donít have the desire to join another site with generic porn. Viv Thomas isnít necessarily generic porn Ė itís actually great porn Ė but it does follow the model of most other mainstream porn. When I write a review Iím going to try to be objective and not subjective. Had I joined Viv Thomas before YLP Iím sure Iíd have liked it a lot more. Thatís no criticism of Viv Thomas since I suspect that would have happened to any site that followed YLP.
