Pros: +Access to 579 titles which I believe is close to the entire Wicked libray.
+Content is dated and they update with one new movie each week..
+All the videos can be streamed online.
+All the videos are offered in the mp4 for download with 640x480 resolution for all them, while over 200 of the most recent titles are now also offered with 720p resolution and the last 40+ titltes are also offered in 1080p.
+Unilke most sites like this. You can actually download the entire movie rather than just the scenes. Resolution is the same as the scenes.
+Each movie/scene has multiple tags attached to it and it's possible to search using tags words.
+You catch for free all the Wicked live shows.
+You have access to some bonus content live BTS and award show stuff.
+You also stream over 3000 pages of videos in the bonus section(see con).
+the TBP discount is sweet.
Cons: -I don't know if it's recent but the site often stopped working for no apparent reason which requiried me to log back in.
-Advertising tends to take about 1/5 of all the pages and it's a lot more on certain pages.
-Load times to stream videos is a little long sometime.
-You get access to some camgirls but the good stuff requires that you pay for it so is it really worth it?
-There are over 3000 pages of bonus videos that you can view online but the tags are all wrong, you always get an error message going from one page to the next and quality is not very good on most videos.
*-I'm putting this in the con only because some people are rabid about condoms so be warned that Wicked is a condom company going back a long time.*
Bottom Line: **Ihave been a fan of Wicked since the 90's so it's a little strange that I never thought of joining their site until now. I don't mind condoms and I prefer a story with my porn and this is basically what Wicked does. I suspect that they try to target more the couples market than the gonzo one but that doesn't mean that there isn't any heat in their scenes because there is. They also have a certain number of contract stars so if you are a fan of these ladies then you are almost obligated to join this site because most of them haven't done much except for work for Wicked.

**I was pleasantly surprised to see a studio site offer the majority of their library and even more so to see that you can actually download the entire movie and not just the individual sex scenes. I was happy to see that the video quality on the older title is quite decent. Resolution is only 640x480 but seeing as these movies were never filmed in HD then trying to convert into a higer resolution would probably be a really bad idea.

**My only major issue with the site is that it kept on stopping to work and you had to log back in and find the page you were on. The other one is in regards to the bonus videos. If you are going to bother and put some bonus videos then why not make sure the system works. Otherwise it's usueless filler that slows down the servers.

***The only people that should avoid this site are those looking for pure gonzo porn and those who can't watch porn that has condoms in it.***

rearadmiral (340) Great review pat. I found your take on this site interesting because while our tastes in porn are quite similar there are a few differences that can be seen by comparing our views on the site. If anything, I'm now thinking that maybe I scored them a few points too low.

Condoms aren't a deal-breaker for me, but my preference is to not see them, but I do respect Wicked for the position they've taken and obviously enforce.

The biggest difference I found between Wicked and many other porn sites is that Wicked really makes 'traditional' story-based porn. That's rare these days. I wonder how important that is to a lot of viewers. For some, it might mean that Wicked stuff can be viewed as couples porn, but for me, I have to confess that I just skip ahead to the sex.

I agree that our taste are very similar. I think your recent review was the reason why I joined this site. I really don't mind condoms and in many ways I'd rather see more of them. I'm tired of reading about a new outbreak or this girl leaving wafter she got another STD.
For that reason I gave the site a slightly higher score than maybe somebody less pro-cpndom would.

I think the biggest suprise for me was the ability to download the complete movie. It makes perfect sense when you cosider that they offer scenario driven porn but I think most other sites would not offer the option even if they could simply because it's cheaper not to. The fact that you get access to most if not all of their library is alo a big surprise. Man i wish other studios would do like Wicked in that regard.

slutty (111) Nice review Pat,

I agree with you entirely. I wish the navigation here was a bit better, they used to have scenes tagged and stuff where their old site, but now it is just a model index. I think it is a highly underrated site. I was a member here last month, and never had any logout problems, so must be a recent thing, perhaps high server demand?

I don't really know Wicked all that well and I didn't know that most of their titles are on the site. Had I known that I would have definitely included that as a 'pro' since it really shows the studio's committment to the internet.

I was also pleased to see the full-movie option available. I prefer scenes, but I did download a few full movies of some older titles with stars that I like.

On an unrelated note, I'm disappointed to see that Elegant Angel hasn't made "Lexi" available to VOD sites yet. I was looking forward to seeing Lexi Belle's first anal scene this weekend. It looks like I'll have to wait a while longer.

I think they are going to withold the VOD release until they've sold a few dvd's and blu-rays first. I don't blame them because it must have cost them dearly to get her to do anal. I'd be surprised if she did it for less than 10,000 and I'd have no problem believing that it cost them 20,000. We are afterall talking about the Holy Grail of anal pornstars. I can't think of any other girls in recent history whom people thought would never do it and that includes me.

I hope the log out is due to excessive traffic because that is good news for porn fans. More people joining a site means more money for the studio and that often translates into more porn. They have just signed Samantha Saint to a contract so hopefully we get to see her in some Wicked movies in the very near futur.

You're probably right. I hope they paid Lexi a small fortune for the movie, and particularly the anal scene. I also hope that Elegant Angel makes a ton of money off of this too. Studios making money from making good porn is good for the talent, good for the studios and good for those of us who actively buy porn.

One thing I don't get is how online sales and DVD sales are related. I agree that they may want to drive DVD sales for a while, but that presumes that there is more money to be made there. But is there? I don't know what the markup is on a DVD, but a VOD must be mostly profit since the cost of making the movie is amortized across all sales so a VOD's cost to the company is bandwidth on their own site or licencing fees to Adult VOD sites. I'm guessing that I'm not the only person who doesn't but DVDs and is sitting here with my credit card ready to give someone money who will let me see the movie as a VOD or download.

I think that Elegant makes a decent amount of money on dvd and Blu-ray sales and they know that if the movie is made available on their own site too quickly then they will lose some of that money. Who will pay 20$ for a dvd and more importantly wait the week it takes to get delivered when they can access it right away for about that price and get plenty more as well?

I think the profit sharing on VOD sites isn't all that lucrative for studios so it's a catch 22 for most of them. Do you make your new super indemand movie availabe to VOD sites and thereore get some money or withold it and chnace that the movie makes it on tube sites or torrent sites and lose money.

Good point... but Elegant Angel could also rent it via VOD on their own site I suspect.

That's true but I'm not aware of any studio site that does this. It could be a technology issue. I mean VOD requires members pay for streaming time and you have to monitor that time for each member so that is a lot of people on your servers.

I guess that's why they use AEBN and Hot Movies for their streaming services.

Good point. I recall seeing a "VOD Coming Soon!" claim on a site and I thought it was EA's own site, but it may have been Adult DVD Empire.
