||+ Well-performed, imaginative scenarios and stories
+ Choice of Verotel or CCBill for billing
+ Updates a minimum of once a week, often more
+ Good quantity of existing scenes
+ Has a user forum (though it's quirky)
+ No DRM
+ Good variety of models, both male and female, and most are good-looking
+ All content exclusive
+ True to the CFNM concept, unlike some sites
+ No regional billing as far as I can see
||- Very expensive ($39.95 1st month, $34.95 after)
- If you pay via Verotel, my preferred biller, there is a $1.95 one-off joining fee- unique to this site in my experience
- Update schedule can be a little erratic
- Movies split up into often short scenes - each one counts as an update
- Not all stories/scenarios are video - some are photoset-only. This include later updates - you never know which you'll get.
- Some videos only available on sister site CFNM.TV which costs the same again to join - no discounts, and they use DRM
- Site design is chaotic, with no real search functions. Forum requires seperate log-in and is very old-fashioned and difficult to navigate
- I found downloads and streaming slow
||It's been a long while since I reviewed this site, and despite its flaws I keep going back to it, so new review time!
Not much has changed with the basic formula of the stories, which is a good thing. They continue to produce the best CFNM videos out there - imaginative, varied and fun with good-looking models, both male and female. This is true CFNM - the women's clothes stay on, always.
The site is varied in the type of CFNM it does - a bit of everything. CFNM takes two main forms - lighter, more fun CFNM where the male is more in control and admired by the clothed ladies, and darker, where it's more about humiliation and control of the men. CFNM.net tends to go more for the latter, but generally it's more humiliation than true hardcore - there is only a sprinkling of S&M scenes and even that tends to be on the lighter side. The site has a sense of fun and humour.
CFNM.net is a sister site to some gay sites though and this does sometimes show through - you'll see occasional gay sex between the naked models and insertions of dildos, vibrators and strap-ons is quite common. This may appeal more to gay men and possibly some straight women than straight men, though if you're a submissive straight man, or have a bi side, it might appeal.
In any case, it's pretty unique stuff and all of it is imaginative and well performed by generally hot models.
The downsides are largely the standard ones for this studio - downloads are pretty slow (I actually only realised this when I joined other sites from other studios and was astonished at how much faster the downloads were!), site design is basic and chaotic, with illogical layout and non-existent search functions making things unncessary complicated, and whilst the updates come at least once a week and often more, they're not done to a regular schedule.
Plus, the updates are scenes, not full movies. These are often pretty short - 10 minutes or less - and there can be a dozen of more of them to each movie. They tend to only update a couple of movies at a time, so if you don't care for a movie they're currently updating, it could represent half your updates for the next 2 - 3 months!
Technically the movies are about average - the latest, highest-quality WMV files are 960x540, 25f/ps with a bitrate arond 8,300 - though bitrate and size does seem to vary a little. WMV seems the only option, though you do get a selection of file sizes.
The photosets are a bit of a letdown for a site which focuses on pictures more than video - they're large (1100x600) but with only one size and no sets or zips - you download each picture one at a time! They also all have watermarks.
The biggest issue with this site, which has improved slightly but is still not fully resolved, is the photo/video issue. Some stories are photosets only, some have videos. At once point they announced no new videos would be made (see my seperate comment on this). They have since backtracked somewhat, but still some new stories are photoset only, so you never know which you'll get. There is also a horrible sister site called CFNM.TV which contains some of the videos this site only has photosets for, but it's the same price with no discount, uses intrusive DRM which expires downloaded videos when your membership expires, and is never updated.
They seem to have practically abandoned CFNM.TV, but it still exclusively holds some videos of photosets you see on CFNM.net. I have noticed they've started publishing older videos which were once only on CFNM.TV on CFNM.net, without DRM, though as new updates to CFNM.net. This is bit mean as they're not really new and they already publish the photosets, but at least you get to see and download the videos to keep this way without having to join yet another expensive site.
I HOPE they're planning to gradually transfer all CFNM.TV videos onto CFNM.net as "new updates" and then shut CFNM.TV down, but I don't know if they will. They seem to be going in the right direction, but are famous for abrupt policy changes so for all I know they could change their minds again! Once they said they wouldn't release any more of a story because some of it had been published on a file-sharing site, but again seemed to back-down in the face of customer complaints.
To be honest the content is so unique and hot I could almost ignore all the usual techical issues and award this site in the high 80s.
As it is, the confused policy over video prevents me going over the 70s. Whilst they've taken some positive baby-steps to improving since my last membership, which causes me to raise their score from 71 to 75, I can only give this site a qualified recommendation - look the previews and if you agree they are as hot as I think they are, then join but with your eyes wide open as to the flaws.
