- Overall solid photography and production values and a clean but simple layout.
- Attractive, youthful, slender models, mostly euro with some porn star cross overs.
- Good download speeds, with a nice variance of photo file sizes.
- Apps are offered for IPhone and Android.
- All material is exclusive.
- Large Model Data base.
- The search engine for models consists of A to Z or models name making it time consuming to searh the site in an efficient way.
-Some of their better models are shot in a very softcore way. Little use of lingere and too many straight birthday suits in some sets.
- Mild decline in the quality of recent models.
- Watch for upsell when joining, CCBill was slow to respond to issues.
FEMJOY is an art nude site which caters to those who like young, generally pretty and natural women. It is softcore, so no insertions other than an occasional finger tip nor toy play and all of the material is exclusive. The current price for the site is 19.95 recurring which is a bargain if this type of site interests you and especially if you've never been a member.
You have several photo formats which is nice and all pictures within the last four years are high resolution. The zip files offered are small, standard (my preference) and large and the download speeds were above average for me.
I personally ran into to no download limits but I do not have a mass downloader. Still, I was able to pop out up to 20 plus gallery downloads per session with no trouble.
FEMJOY uses what I call mildly deceptive advertising where they want you to see the more and not the less. They claim up to 3 updates daily and up to 2 new videos per week. Well, I saw that happen just once in both categories. FEMJOY has a wide selection of models, up to 750. There has been a ton of brunettes and not enough blonde's in recent months and in my humble opinion, they haven't had those knock out main stay models since the last time I joined.
To clarify, I waited a solid two plus years between memberships and it took that long for me to justify joining again from simply following their updates and models.
The videos offer what is more or less a flash player and formats for windows are 640 x 360 or 1280 x 720. The smaller files were adequate for my tastes. They offer the same exact sizes for Quicktime and have an Ipod feature as well and even a small playstation portable. Also added are apps for Android and my preferred IPhone. but I found neither compelling enough to use or go through the mild learning curve associated.
The quality of the videos are good with nice production values but they are softcore for sure and some seem repetitive, especially if shot by the same person. The photo's are sharp and clear with not too much fodder in the sets, but like the videos and one of my main gripes, look the same when certain photo artists are used.
Some of the artists just have the same old style over and over and the same backdrops as well which gets boring quick to a true photo enthusiast. But quality is there which brings me to my main gripe and one that frustrated me greatly and dropped my rating several points.
The search features are deplorable for such a quality site. Forget typing in blond or red hair and blue eyes and such for it isn't there. And when you go to the models section your eyes will cross trying to pick out models that float your boat.
It is very clunky and difficult to pick through for the photos are not always reflective of the models you will see upon clicking on them. It took me the entire allotted membership time to dig out the models and zip files and vids I wanted to keep and this is just unacceptable for a site that should have a search feature that matches the overall quality of their productions.
You can search models A to Z or by name and we all know models names change from site to site and that is another gripe towards better model identification. The main stay models they do have, unfortunately are more PG, meaning no views of the real goods, save a shadow or two.
Another negative was when I joined it took three hours before I could log on which was a major turnoff, but all sites generally come with one glitch, so no big deal. However, it took CCBill five business days to respond to a complaint and had I been down that whole time, they would have been extremely slow to repsond to the issue.
That is not necessarily a problem of the FEMJOY staff who uses their services. They also offer EPOCH as a way to pay as well. There is one cross or upsell to watch for when signing up.
Overall, the quality of the models and photography and such is well above average, but in my opinion this site trails Met Art and especially MPL a site I now think sets the pace for art nude erotic photography in this niche.
I recommend FEMJOY for those interested in these types of sites and feel it is a very good site. I am a very picky purveyor and I found quality but not without some serious work and the aforementioned crossed eyes.
One telling thing for me which makes it clear it'll be another two years before I revisit was that in the entire month of the membership, save two days left, I downloaded 10 of 63 photo updates, which shows a slight decline in quality per average. I dowloaded the majority of 19 models content.
That to me is a great value but I expected more in that I waited over two years between memberships. If this makes any sense, I was both a satisifed customer that was a little disappointed at the same time and I absolutely detested how hard it was to search the models for the material I covet.

Femjoy used to be the site that never gave discounts. But they have come on strong. First with that 2 for 1 deal. Now its only $19.95 a month. So this may be yet another opportunity to become a member. I think it rebills at the same price but I am not sure so you will have to check that one out..
Femjoy is back to the regular pricing. No more two months for one deal. I did not know if it rebilled at 29.95 for two months anyways. Does any member who joined at the bargain price know if it rebilled at 2 for 1 rate? I cancelled out of the rebill about a month ago. I seldom rebill- though I should have this time.
Femjoy models need more makeup in their photosets and videos.
This is a matter of personal taste or personal opinion. But:
I've been a member of femjoy about a month now. The site has some great-looking models, that you will see at other teen glamour sites. And the photography is high quality by top erotic photographers. But my gripe is that the models basically need more makeup to bring out their attractiveness. I'm not big on models (or people in regular life) wearing excessive makeup. But with a video or photoshoot, unless you use a minimum of makeup, the model will normally appear less attractive. Met-art usually gets it close to right, and the models usually appear to be attractive to very attractive. Femjoy uses less makeup on their models. The same models, the same photographer, and the photoset will be better looking at met-art than at femjoy. That is partly because of the makeup difference; also met-art allows more variety of costumes.
femjoy is almost entirely nude, very little use of clothing/costume, and any clothing used at femjoy is very simple. Femjoy is going for a very simple, natural style of photography with their models, and it detracts from the presentation of the models. I realize appreciation of a model's beauty is a personal taste, but if you see the models of Victoria's secret, or world-class supermodels photographed without makeup, and in old, cheap un-colorful clothes, it takes away a huge amount of the glamour and allure of the models.
There are a huge number of lovely models at femjoy, but the photosets don't bring out the eroticism of the models. The site is trying to present lovely girls as "the girl next door", with a very natural, simple style, but the style reduces the attractiveness of the models in the photosets.
Even if you are using the "girl next door" theme, which was probably first made popular with Playboy back in the 1950s and 1960s, for nude photography, you still want the model and photos to be as attractive as possible, with an erotic appeal. You don't want to take a good-to-great-looking girl, and produce a bunch of photographs that just look blah and unappealing. Met-art, in general, takes good-looking girls and makes good-to-great-looking photos. Femjoy takes the same girls, and makes photos that are less good-looking. That's a shame.
I see from the comments and reviews that other PU members don't necessarily agree with my opinion on the need for more makeup at femjoy. But I think my opinion has merit, and frankly, I'm surprised some PU member hasn't already expressed a similar opinion.
This is not one of my "Google" and find some Easter Egg special either - I just glanced at the site as I do periodically, and they're offering a pretty great deal, as compared to their usuals - $29.95 US for 60 days recurring.
Wait a few minutes before logging on after joining
I decided if I could handle two for one.. and joined
I had no problems logging onto the site. The screen tells me to wait about five minutes before logging on..so thats what I'd suggest..
Other than that. No gimmicks to the deal..Still two updates a day..The girls are gorgeous; beautiful skin; well posed; gorgeous outdoor locations; elaborate sets.. and the beautiful girls just take my breath away..the beauty is so finely polished to the smallest detail; hair; earrings; make-up--
the power of beauty..
I just signed up with Femjoy, based on Mr Fountain's comment that a membership is now offered at $29.95 for 60 days. I gave my name, credit card information, etc. to CCBill, and was given a username, password, and subscription number. However, I can't log on to the user area of Femjoy with my username and password. I transferred to CCBill to see if I can find what the problem is, and CCBill shows I have no subscription/membership at Femjoy. I will try to log on at Femjoy later. One problem, besides being not able to log on to Femjoy member area, is the warning at log on that after 3 attempts to log on to member area, "you will be ...". (It doesn't say what you will be, other than dotted 3 times, but I suspect I will be barred from being able to log on for a number of hours, or maybe barred for 1 day.
Not a good start to my membership. Even tho CCBill shows I do not have a membership, after I gave my credit card and other information, I was then given a subscription ID, so I think I do have a membership, even tho it's not working properly.
Edit 1: OK, checking back at CCBill, it now shows I do have a membership at Femjoy, which started today.
Switching back to Femjoy, try to log on, and still can't get into member area. Will try again later. Hope that I am not barred from site because of prior attempts to sign on.
Edit 2: A side note: I used to get confirmation emails whenever I joined a pay site. I did not get any confirmation email yet from CCBill for this membership (recently I also did not get any confirmation email from another paysite membership).
Tried to log on to Femjoy member area, still can't get in.
Is it too much to ask for that once you pay for a site membership, you should be able to log on easily?
Edit 3: I can now get into member area of Femjoy. I still have not gotten any confirmation email of my membership, but as long as I can get into site, that's the main thing. Some of the models are gorgeous.
