hegre-art.com is a spectacular erotic photography (softcore) site with some interesting and remarkable features. The girls are beautiful and the photography is always stunning. Most of the imagery is excellent, but the signature component to this site is probably the very well done erotic massage and tantra massage shoots and videos. Navigation is generally very good and the images come in a wide range of sizes up to 10,000k. The models are predominantly european, with a few well known US names mixed in. Oh, and the site is an excellent value for the money compared to other similar sites.
Couple of small things. First, it is too difficult to get to the larger images for each set and when they load, you cannot move through them because they each load to a separate page. The page-back navigation is a little clunky, too, as it usually does not immediately take you back to where you were before. Oh, and I was completely unable to get the site to work on Internet Explorer 9, although it works fine on Chrome. Something about cookies, I think. Not a hige deal as I use several browsers but it might be for others. Generally, if you can get into the previews, you can get into the site.
This site is dominated by really well done single model erotic photo shoots and softcore single-model videos, but most of the models are absolutely beautiful and the photography is among the best on the planet. The models are probably mostly 20-30 with a few really outstanding 18 year-olds. I think the point here is that this is NOT a teen or hard core site. It pays homage to the best of the female form. The models are all shapes, sizes, ethnicities and colors, but generally very shapely (probably some of the best breasts on the net here.) There is full nudity, but many models are conservitive, meaning they don't all do close-ups, spread eagles, etc. There are very few sex scenes and I can't recall a single toy or vibrator on the entire site. There are a lot of beach scenes and a handful of group shots where it appears a gang of girls was rounded up and shipped off someplace exotic for photo shoots. The result is more of a veuyers nude-beach fantasy than a photo shoot intended solely to get you off.
Perhaps another, much more esoteric way to put it is that this site is like a fine wine store. You can get a great buzz on fine wine, but part of the experience is appreciating the wine as you do. If you are just looking to get drunk quickly, go to the liquor store and buy some mad-dog. If you can appreciate this analogy, this site may be right for you. If not, skip it and go straigth to a hard-core site.
The signature item for the site is erotic massage, basically taking a beautiful girl, covering her with oil and giving her a professional massage, complete with happy ending. These are nicely and professionaly done, with no talking, no artificial moaning and no acting involved. Lookout, though, there are a few of these sessions with men.
Navigation is generally very good, with the option for thumbs, slides or something called journal, which takes all the images in a set and stacks them at roughly screen size.
There are, according to the site, over 200,000 images in 3300 galeries. The collection dates back as far as 2002. The images from that timeframe, although generally good quality and consistent with the theme of the web site, are small by today's standards at about 2000x1320 max.
The site seems to use mostly eastern european models with a few nearly exclusive resident models. Look up Anna S, an apparently French stunner, or Luba, a long-time regular.
If you are into large images, this site has some of the largest and best on the net, some as large as 7500x10000 pixels (That's close enough to see pores or over 11 feet tall at 72dpi!). Do you want a lifelsize image of Melissa Mendini standing against a white wall in nothing but high heels for the back of your closet door? (assuming you can print it.) Well, here's the place to get it and many, many more like that. The only problem is that you can't get to these large images via the thumbs. You have to go to slides, click through the slides, preview the image you are interested in and then choose the size. You can also go to the journal, wait for all the images to load, then scroll down and choose your size from there. There are, on average, about 6 sizes per image ranging from very small to larger-than-life. Older sets have almost-as-large-as-life images.
I would recommend this site to anyone who is tired of the teenybopper or hardcore porn sites and is just looking for some really beautiful women to look at for a while. I would also recommend this site to anyone who likes Met-Art, or Femjoy.
*Newbie reviews and ratings don't count toward a site's overall score/rank until the user reaches the Rookie status level (5 points). This rule is needed to help prevent fake (or heavily biased) profiles and reviews.
If you click on a downloadable zip file for a picture set, it takes up to 1 minute to "find" the file and another minute before the actual download starts. (At least that's the case on my side). Also, during this search phase, the browser (FF 17 in my case) is basically frozen, you can still ATL TAB to other programs, but the internet connection is taking a nap.
So, if your download doesn't start right away, give it a little time.
Very difficult to cancel monthly fee. Hegre-Art Staff doesn't respond back to emails. Error message with redirect when trying to cancel. Have not been able to get any help from webmaster or billing company.
Very disappointed in lack of customer service. Why do companies continue to conduct business like they are on the hustle. I would have expected more from this company.
I've not been here in ages and thought I'd check it out, noticed they had some nice looking movies but some stated as short as 4 minutes. That does seem too short, no point getting a video camera warmed up for 4 minutes, don't really see the logic in making such short movies.
I have mixed views on the style of Hegre Art - although technically good, I find it a little bland. But for the resolution fiends, I notice that in the past few months, sets are available at 80 megapixels. A closeup would probably reveal more detail than you could see with your own eyes!
More than most softcore teen glamor sites, Hegre seems to make people respond in different ways, from loving the site to finding the site a bore. The PU score for the site is 77, while the TBP score is 92. That is quite a range.
VideosZ has a PU score of 75 and a TBP score of 92. VideosZ is a hardcore video site, instead of a softcore glamor photo site.
But I think it's interesting how some sites seem to polarize the members at PU.
