Goddess Nudes (2)
Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
||--Lots of very beautiful girls here! Updates 5 days a week (one set each day; works out to 260 sets per year, total of about 870 sets at this time).
--Exclusive content as far as I can tell, except for just a few photo sets
--most recent pics are in the 4000 to 6000 pixel range (long dimension of print size sets). There are 2 resolutions (screen size and print size).
--all sets have zips, and I get good download speeds. No excessively large zip files here!
--generally good photography
--first month price is only $4.95 (rebills at 9.95)
||--Primarily a photo site (I only found 2 videos)
--The navigation has a number of issues, and could be improved in that regard (see below).
--No search feature or search tags here at all. You have a chronological index and an alphabetical index.
--Too many outdoor sets for my taste. Also, roughly 50% are all nude sets (no clothes to strip out of).
--Occasional photo sets have poor focus (I thought it might be poor quality scanning from slides, but the webmaster told me they are not scans).
--The first 26 galleries from 2009 don't have galleries that can be viewed on the website--they only have zip files to download. Shouldn't be that much work to fix.
--The site is advertised as the more explicit alternative to the parent site (Domai.com), but there are still some sets that aren't very explicit.
||I was a member at Domai.com about 4 years ago, and came accross Goddess Nudes recently when searching the model indexes for some of my favorite models. Several of my favs had sets there, and when I saw the price was 4.95 for the first month, it was a no-brainer to join. Goddess Nudes is run by the same guy who operates Domai.com. I remembered Domai as having not very explicit photo sets, that were mostly all nude and mostly outdoors. Goddess Nudes is advertised as a similar site to Domai, but with more explicit photos.
Once I joined, a quick perusal of several photo sets showed that was true, but I have since come accross a number of sets that disappoint me in that regard. My ideal solo girl photo/video site would have a good variety of poses in every photo set, to include several spread leg and pussy close up photos in every one. You get that in some, but not all, of the sets here.
The models here are generally very beautiful eastern European girls in the 18 to 25 age range. There are quite a few that I have not seen anywhere else. There are some popular European models here, but perhaps fewer than at other sites. For some reason very few of these girls are listed at my favorite model index.
I remembered Domai as having almost exclusively outdoor sets, and that appears to be the case here as well. I'd like to see more indoor sets, especially some in nice luxurious beds.
Roughly 50% of the sets here start with the girl having some clothes on (I didn't really do any counts of this, so I may be off a little). The other 50% or so are all nude. There is not much slow seductive stripping, although that is something that is hard to do properly with photo sets (much easier and better with video). Many of the clothed sets start with the girl in bra and panties.
I found some occasional photo sets with poor focus. Most of the newer sets are very good, but overall this site falls short of other top photo sites like Met-Art, Femjoy, and MPL Studios in the quality department.
The site is set up almost identically to Domai, which is to say, it has some navigation issues. When you log into the home page, there are currently about 3 and half months worth of photo sets on the main page (roughly 75 sets). Each set has a large thumbnail on the left side of the browser window. Only the left side of the browser window is used, so the end result is that the page is at least 4 times longer (top to bottom) than it could be if there were 4 thumbnails going accross the page. OK, not such a big deal you might say. But when you click into a photo set, and then back out of it, it takes you back to the top of the home page. You then have to scroll all the way down back to where you were (while trying to not get distracted on the way). This also happens on many (but not all) of the yearly index and alphabetical index pages as well. I know there is a way to code in html that takes you back to where you were on the previous page, but that is not done consistently here.
You might think with 260 photo sets a year, each yearly index page would have links to sub-pages for each month. Nope, you get the same extemely long (top to bottom) page that includes all sets for that year. You might also think once you were in a given photo set, that you could click on a link to show all of that model's photo sets. Nope, you have to go back to home page (which sometimes prompts you to log in again), and get there via the alphabetical index (which again often involves lots of scrolling).
These are not huge issues--you can still find you what need, and with 870 photo sets, the site isn't so large that these issues would be a deal breaker (though I hope Domai isn't still like this). Still, it doesn't seem like it would take that much work to come up with a better design.
All complaining aside, the bottom line is the bottom line. This site only costs $4.95 for the first month, and for me that was a great deal. I got a good number of zip files of some gorgeous girls, including several of my favs. Definitely worth checking out!
