||-- Lots of picture sets
-- An engaged community of models and members who participate in an abundance of groups both sexual and non-sexual
-- A well-organized home page allowing for easy navigation
-- Models representing lots of shapes and sizes, all of whom reflect different notions of beauty
||-- Quality of pic sets varies markedly
-- Some models won't be to your liking, more so than on other sites where you find a more consistent level of beauty
-- Videos are brief and eclectic, not typically erotic (and, usually, superfluous)
-- Pic sets can't be downloaded
||Welcome to the post-Rigel era at Suicide Girls. Rigel was a popular model (and administrator) on the site until 2010, when conflicts at the company -- as well as a desire to return to school -- hastened her departure. She represented the ideal SG: gorgeous, shapely, inventive, and, of course, irresistible thanks to her stunning tattoos. A new Rigel set was an event -- you knew you'd get high-quality, erotic photos shaped around a creative concept. She was the best.
Her exit came after the site began expanding its model roster, and, given the influx of new talent, the quality of the photo sets diminished, and the models themselves became less compelling. Fewer and fewer captivate me now, and it's difficult to keep up with the ever-changing and expanding roster. (Only a handful of true stars, like Annalee, remain.) Many of the sets will leave you flat; others will have you scratching your head. Occasionally, you'll find a model and set that capture you. Quality control seems lacking, though part of the aim of the site, no doubt, is to be more democratic in who they feature. It is what is -- no more.
One of the advantages of SG is the active (and large) community, comprised of both models and members, who post to the site's board and who participate in an abundance of groups that cover sexuality, religion, philosophy, the arts, and pop culture. Many of the groups have active discussions. I suspect some members, like me, continue to buy a subscription merely to keep abreast of group goings-on.
On the topic of subscription rate, it's not expensive. You pay $49/year, and if you let your membership lapse, eventually you'll get an offer to renew at $29/year. So it's not a prohibitive investment, and, frankly, it's not worth any more than that, unless your fetish happens to involve tattooed and pierced women.
I've become bored with the photo sets -- they rarely have the charm that Rigel's sets (and those of other classic models) exhibited. But once in a while you're treated to a gem, and the community is always there to engage with. In addition to the pics and videos, you'll find blogs (by both models and members), interviews with well-known figures in the arts community, and a chat feature.
