Don't think I get it

I have a 2 month membership so I will give them the full 2 months before reviewing it since my review wouldn't be that fair or even that positive right now.

The quality is very high. I really like the photo sets as well. The ones I have downloaded top out near 6000 long end on the pictures.

Video quality is very high as well, though a little confusing. I don't know if they are doing something to optimize bitrates/file size, but full length 1920x1080 files are only 200-300 MB.

One reason the video files are small is because the time of the videos. I haven't seen a video over 20 minutes yet and the average seems to be in the 14-15 minute range.

As I had worried would be the case, the picture sets are better than the videos. I believe the basis of this site is really good, but it's going to take nearly perfect execution to pull it off. Most of the models, especially females, are younger 18-22 range, and I'm not for sure how believable an 18-22 year old can be when it comes to passionate sex.

To my surprise, there isn't much dialogue or story with the scenes which was something I was expecting a lot of. On the other hand, there is the Kamikaze Love series, which I downloaded all of, only to end up deleting all of because it was like watching an HBO after dark movie.

I will give it the two months before reviewing it with the chance maybe their steady updates will start showing some improvement.

slutty (111) I know you guys all have raid arrays and crazy hard drive space, but 200-300 GB certainly isn't small to me (I know its a typo).

X-Art and orgasms.xxx both also have relatively small files, although the full HD ones are typically 400-600 depending on length. Are they crisp, what bitrate and codec are they using?

Hey slutty, I probably could have went into that deeper than I did and will in my review. One of the big selling points of Sex Art is that it is much more erotic than your average hardcore porn scene. Considering the scenes I downloaded are 1920x1080 quality, that would automatically make the file sizes bigger, but the scenes, to me, are extremely short to be sold as "erotic". Very little story, very little talking and the sex lasts 8-12 minutes. My complaint isn't so much with the file size as it is with the scenes being very short and not being very erotic, the filesize was used more to show just how short the scenes are. If it were a 640x480 resolution clip, I wouldn't think much about the smaller file size, but at true HD, it shows how short the scenes are by showing the smaller file size.

And what you ask at the end is the interesting part. The videos are very crisp, I mentioned maybe they are optimizing bitrates or using some kind of trick to get the best quality at a small filesize. The files are listing Codec: H264-MPEG4 AVC. Bitrate is 4215 kb/s. As an example of what I was saying, the video I got that info from is a solo video. The model is fully dressed and walking in her apartment/house, she is fully nude by 1:42. The entire scene is 8:38. I hate to beat a dead horse, but it seems like erotic videos would have more than 1:42 of fully dressed to fully nude, with teasing, stripping, etc...

PinkPanther (46) Yeah, I was not excited by this site, I have to say. There is some nice photography and they're using some models that I really like, but it's too "cool" for my tastes. I want hotter and kookier and more silly and more unpredictable generally. I like Met Art because with all the variety and with all the depth of history in the site, there's always something to enjoy. This site is just a bit too "meh" for me.

I'm not a big fan of X-Art either, which is probably a close parallel to this site.

The Kamikaze Love stuff was probably some of my favorite stuff on this site, because, while it was formulaic, it had a very definite mood - and, with the exception of John Stagliano, who is posting "Voracious" in excerpts at EvilAngel.com - nobody else is doing full feature material of this sort on a web site. Brazzers dabbled a bit in it a couple of years ago, would have done well to have continued to do so.

Thanks for the info, exotics. That bitrate is sort of low, even for h.264 for full HD, but I'll trust your opinion if you say it is crisp. I still don't understand why sites brag about native resolution, as it doesn't really matter - it is the bitrate that matters.

I certainly hope the file sizes aren't 200 GB with that bitrate ;) or something funny is going on. I do agree it is a shame that the sites that try to be more 'erotic' tend to have very short videos. Not really sure why that is, and I guess in this case didn't do so well on the erotic side of things either way.

They are mostly around 200-300MiB. Even though the bitrate is lower than other sites, I assume they have optimised the encoder settings, as the video is very good.

Would it make a huge difference in crispness if I have a high end PC? I just bought the one I'm using a few months ago and it has very high specs. Seems to make everything look really good. And I agree, I thought the filesizes looked really strange for 1920x1080 videos at 4000 bitrate. I haven't been back to the site after downloading all the photo sets, which are very good, but will stop back in and download the videos towards the end of my membership to at least give them a fair second chance before reviewing it.

I was about to post a comment about my newfound interest in Evil Angel, a site, I had only added on my Videobox account before and never thought I would join outright by itself. I like the Voracious one. I'm pretty sure my problem with Kamikaze Love was that I had never seen Kayla Love, or at least I don't remember seeing her before and was hoping for a lot more of her in the scenes.

And to my surprise, I seem to be leaning more away from the softcore. My last 3 joins have been 2 Kink sites and Evil Angel. I would like to think my taste is becoming more sophisticated, but I'm guessing 9 out of 10 people would disagree!

I'm sure perfomance of your machine can make a difference, although I was merely just joking since you said 200-300 GB (gigabytes) for a video, which is freaking HUGE! Sorry if my attempt at humor in pointing out your typo was not so obvious - I just thought it was funny for some reason. 200-300 MB for a 10 minute or so HD video can be pretty good if the encoding is well done. I wish more sites did this, as I absolutely hate downloading videos that are like 2 GB, it is just such a nuisance. Even though space is cheap these days, I'd still much prefer to get more on less.

Evil Angel is a GREAT site! If you haven't already seen it, I HIGHLY recommend the "Nacho Vidal Sexual Messiah" scene with Skin Diamond being trained by Nacho and Sandy of Club Sandy fame. It's hands-down my favorite porn scene of the past year.

Skin is my favorite newer model, but I haven't downloaded anything of her on Evil Angel yet, but will now. I didn't even realize Sandy was on there, putting her in a scene with Skin sounds too good to be true!

That's alright on the humor part. I must not have caught the GB on it, meant MB. I do prefer the smaller videos and rarely download the HD versions just to save space. While I have quite a bit of space, it's starting to become a hassle trying to keep up with the different hard drives and what is on each one. I used to have a huge collection compared to most, but most of the newer PUs here are blowing me away in hard drive space, servers, I'm still under 10 TB total.

I won't say anything more about it except download it and enjoy it.

By the way, I saw Skin Diamond feature at my local strip club this past Thursday night. As hot as I thought she was before, I had no idea! This woman is staggeringly beautiful. She's got that model can't take your eye off her thing and her bod is just stunning!! Watching her on stage was a total thrill. I only wish I were a large Black or Latino guy, since those are the guys she most gravitated to and virtually every large Black and Latino guy sitting stage-side - and there were several ended up with their faces deep in her pussy.

Well, that's still more than me, I only have about 3TB of total space, and at least 1TB is taken up with music, movies, and TV shows. I also much prefer the smaller videos, 1 or 2 GB is just too much of a hassle, even if the quality is better.
