Cons: File sizes of zips not listed
Video run times not stated
No search engine or tags
No separate category for photo updates
Not much ethnic diversity in the models.
Some models donít have much content
Some models have no solo sets.
Many small photo sets (only 20 to 40 pics)
Overall photo collection surprisingly small for a site that has been online nearly 5 years
A lot of the sets start with the model already nude or wearing very little so not much in the way of stripping or teasing
Bottom Line: Following on from two excellent reviews of this site by rearadmiral and lk2fireone in the last week or so itís difficult to know what I can say about this site without repeating everything thatís already been said so Iíll just try and look at it from a different perspective as my main interest is solo softcore photography and I have little interest in the lesbian, boy/girl action or videos.

The earliest updates on X-Art are dated November 2007 and it looks as though it started out as a photo site for a couple of years with videos being gradually being introduced by the end of 2009. Today the site is more video focused and you can expect at least every other update to be a video. The site advertises ďupdates every Monday, Wednesday and FridayĒ but they seem to have stepped up the update rate recently and itís looking like about 5 updates a week in recent times.

After logging in the main navigation options you are provided with are ďupdatesĒ, ďvideosĒ, and ďmodelsĒ. Oddly they donít provide a separate category for those of us who only like to browse the photo collection. When selecting updates you will get all 500+ video and photo updates listed on one page so be prepared for a lot of scrolling. You can sort the updates by most recent, highest rated or title and you also have sub categories for solo, lesbian. boy/girl and group sex.

The model index is nicely presented listing all 140 models on one page with a nice sized 300 x 200 px preview picture along with her name, age and country of origin. You can sort the models by rating, date added, alphabetically or age. They donít provide any other search options if you wanted to search models by hair colour or breast size for example. The models are mostly 18 to early 20s here with a good mix of European and US girls but little ethnic variety. The stand out models for me here were Francesca and Caprice who both had a fair amount of updates each.

Clicking on a model will present you with all her available photo sets and videos so I decided the best way to find the solo photo sets I wanted would be to work my way through the model index alphabetically. 5 out of the first 6 models I checked didnít even have a solo photo set so I soon started to think I wasnít going to get a lot out of this site. Add in the fact that when I did find sets to download very often they only had 20 to 30+ photos in the set so it soon became apparent that this is not a high volume site for photo lovers on the scale of Met-Art, MPL Studios or Femjoy. In the end because some models didnít have any solo sets I just ended up downloading every solo and girl/girl set from the site which came to a grand total of just under 15,000 photos.

However what the site lacks in quantity of photos they certainly make up for in quality. These photo shoots are beautifully crafted and are as good as anything you would see at Met Art if not better in my opinion. The models are all naturally beautiful mostly without fake breasts or unsightly tattoos apart from the odd exception. I would guess there is some touching up going on in these photos because the modelís bodies always look absolutely flawless, moles and marks on the models skin that are visible in the videos have disappeared in the photos so if you like to see all the imperfections on the models then maybe this site would not be to your liking. I also love the photographerís style the way he creates the sets using a lot of white backgrounds, often the model will be presented on a bed covered in white sheets or against a backdrop of white curtains or on a white sofa and often the model will be bathed in a hazy sunlight as it penetrates a nearby window to give the whole thing a kind of dreamy look. Many of the shoots start out with the model already nude but on the occasions when the model does wear something often it is just some simple white lingerie to give the models this look of youthful innocence.

I wonít go in to any great detail on the video section in this review as itís not my area of expertise and was covered by the other recent reviews. Overall this is a high quality collection of photos and videos and my only real complaint as a photo lover was that it left me wanting more. With the siteís emphasis now shifting more towards videos and hardcore action only about 1 in every 6 updates hold any appeal for me so I canít see myself returning here any time soon. If your preference is for videos then you could probably add 10 points to my score.

lk2fireone (194) Excellent review. Lots of actual details and opinions about the site. Clearly shows how the value of a site's contents depends on each person's personal preferences; yet also tries to give a balanced overview of the site.

tangub (151) REPLY TO #1 - lk2fireone :

Thanks for your kind words lk2, much appreciated. That was a difficult site to review being conscious of the fact there were already two recent fine reviews from your good self and rearadmiral and not wanting to repeat everything over again I hope I managed to achieve my objective of putting across a different view point without doing the site too much of a disservice because they clearly excel at what they do even if a large part of it doesn't hold much interest for me. Once again thanks for your help in locating the discount sign up link.
