Cheap, especially with $5 promo in your spam box.
All clips are available to download in everything from low res up to 1080p formats.
Decent couples scenes if you and your significant other are into that.
No download limits and download managers work.
Small site. At the time of this writing there are 22 pages with four videos on each page, so under 100 clips total.
Three BIG "trusted partners" ads on the bottom of each page, and that's 10 points off the score immediately.
Not a bad site, but not when scenes are compared to some similar ones on their Mile High Media sister site. Plus you get the added benefit of having hundreds and hundreds of other clips for the same price as Erotica X, because you and your partner may want to warm up with a nice candlelit romance one Tuesday evening but a raunchy three-way after a few glasses of wine on Saturday.
It's a small and okay site, but, honestly, it could just as easily be a "romantic" section in the total Mile High Media (or some other Fame) collection and not an entirely separate website.

EroticaX is a new site created by the people who run the Open Life network. Itís a stand-alone site and not part of the Open Life network. The site offers a TBP discount at $15 and TBP also reports a full trial. I joined for a month so I canít independently confirm the trial is full.
For a buyer who prefers harder-edged porn Iím always surprised at how much I like sites like this. This site is the latest in a crop of relatively new Ďartcoreí sites with an emphasis on high production values and a focus more on sensuality rather than raw sexuality. Each of the scenes starts slowly with some lingering shots of the model and then moves into some passionate sex. Not to create confusion Ė this is still a hardcore site with everything that youíd expect from that. These are not hotel-grade softcore videos. The videos are also a more natural length with each running about 25 minutes. It seems that aiming for a more sensual scene by not including gagging, throat fucking, gaping and spitting really brings the length down to something closer to the time it takes for real people to have sex
Many of the scenes also use some interesting locations. While there are some beaches and other outdoor locations, they also use some pretty swanky apartments or condos.
The models in the scenes are mostly from the current A-list in the adult industry. Unfortunately the site doesnít offer much information to the prospective buyer so there appears to be no way to see whatís available before you join. But if youíre interested, models such as Allie Haze, Casey Calvert, Dillion Harper, Lia Lor, Maddy OíReilly and Teal Conrad all have scenes here. (One thing to note: I also have a membership to the main Open Life network and found one scene was on both sites. That may be an issue for some.)
As this is a new site it is still quite small with only 20 scenes being available as of this writing. A new scene is added weekly so the site will continue to grow. Depending on your interest and internet connection, a member may want to consider the trial for now until the site grows. One feature that I like is that you can select a tab that will show you what scenes will be uploaded in the coming month. The downside to that is that you may see that there is a pending scene you want to see but itís just past when your membership will expire.
The site is created by Open Life, a company thatís been recently created but was formed by another company that had been around for a while and had a good reputation. Iím not 100% sure, but damn close to that sure, that the site (and other Open Life sites) has to be affiliated with Fame Digital because their user interface and range of download options is the same. Speaking of which, there are a lot of options for downloads. WMVs are available in 160p, 240p, 360p and 480p. MP4s are available in those resolutions too and are also available in 540p, 720p and 1080p. Iíve dropped my practice of downloading the 1080p scenes because I watch most of my porn on a 24Ē monitor and the extra space on my hard drives canít be justified. The 720p files I downloaded came in at 1280x720, a bitrate of just below 5000kb/s and 29fps. The technical side is definitely well done.
Photos are available Ė as singles or zips Ė but this is definitely not a photo site. The pics are 1280x1920.
There are a few things that are a bit subjective, but they bear mentioning in case anyone else is wondering too. Likely owing to the Ďartcoreí niche of the site, some things wouldnít fit and you donít see them. Anal sex is one. One scene is tagged as anal but there is no anal in it. I think the site got a little ambitious because on the scene tagged as anal the male model accidently bumps up against Jenna Rossís anus while in the spoons position. The other missing element is the facial. Body shots are the norm here. I donít consider these cons, Iím just mentioning them in case someone expects Ďsensualí ass-poundings and facials.
The other semi-complaint that I have (that is also subjective and not factored into the score) is the editing and transitions. It appears that the site is trying to convey a more natural and passionate sex than typical gonzo, but the editors too often choose to cut out transitions between positions. I realize that there is probably a lot of forage left on the cutting room floor Ė figuratively, of course Ė but I think showing more transitions to different positions would convey more passion and, in my opinion, turn the heat up a notch.
The bottom line is that if you like high-production-value porn with some of the hottest models in the business today and you like to season your porn collection with some sensual and passionate artcore youíd do well to give this site a try. Yes, the site is small now, but the discount makes it a reasonable value that will only improve as the site grows.
