Question for Met-Art members out there...Are you signed up for email alerts for your favorite models' new photosets, but NOT getting them? I have never gotten any, and wonder if they are being sent to the spam folder by my ISP. Thanks!
I just noticed it today, but they added this feature on Friday 3/15. You can now leave comments at the bottom of the photo sets. I also found out you can get timed out if you leave too many in a short while. LOL! I'm glad they added this feature.
After updating with only 4 updates daily the last couple of weeks, Met-Art has finally posted 6 updates for the first day of March: 1 video plus 5 photosets.
Although they advertise up to 6 updates daily, I noticed that back on January 13, 2013, there were only 3 updates. Recently, they have been posting 4 updates per day.
These facts are probably of interest to hardcore Met-Art fanatics. But I want to spread the word that Met-Art update rate varies. You can't expect 6 updates per day. Even 3 updates per day is more than any other softcore teen glamor site that I am aware of.
I've been a member of Metart for many years, off and on. But I just realized you can set some options on how the site is displayed.
You can show measurements in metric or imperial.
Imperial is the British system of measurements: Feet and inches for length, pounds for weight.
Although they have taught the metric system in the United States for many years, I still have to translate metric to the British system, because I grew up with feet-inches and pounds, and metric measurements just aren't natural for me; I have to translate them to feet-inches and pounds to understand what they mean.
This is a simple thing, really. But it makes the Metart site easier to use.
Also, you can select the language the site is displayed:
Deutsch (which is German, I assume)
Chinese? (I'm guessing, it's some kind of oriental language)
Japanese? (I'm guessing, it's some kind of oriental language)
? (Some other oriental language
So I guess that Metart truly is an international site, promoting softcore porn throughout the world.
I found an email today with a promo join offer for a new site Rylsky Art featuring the work of one of Met-Art's top photographers Rylsky. He's been one of the most prolific contributers at Met in recent times with a new Rylsky set being added almost every day or two. I'm wondering now if the new Rylsky sight will see a gradual decline in his work being show-cased at Met-Art.
The new Rylsky site only has about a month's worth of updates so I couldn't decide if it's worth a subscription yet even at the $7.99 promo price I was offered but the $15 cross-sell to rejoin Met-Art that comes with it might just clinch the deal
1. MET-Art (originally Most Erotic Teens) is a softcore pornography website owned by HLP General Partners Incorporated of Santa Monica, California. The site features erotic photographs of partially or completely naked women, and has been online since circa 1999.
2. Not to be confused with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
But much easier to visit than the New York City museum. And the price to visit the online site is much cheaper.
3. Headquarters: Santa Monica, California
Parent HLP General Partners, INC
It surprises me that the headquarters are in Santa Monica, California.
Almost all the models used in the early years of Met-Art were Eastern European girls.
And the photographers were mainly from Europe, as well.
Most of the models are still from Eastern Europe.
And most of the photographers are still from Europe.
What I want to really know:
If I drive down to Santa Monica, California, how many of the Met-Art girls will I be able to meet?
My guess is: Zero to none, since the site uses very few models from the United States, and almost all the photoshoots are done in Europe.
Can anyone explain to me the benefit of having a headquarters in Santa Monica, California? Versus some place in Europe. I can understand not locating in Russia or some area around there, because the authorities might turn against porn and shut the operation down or force it to move. The same thing happened with Abby Winters in Australia, I think, which is why Abby Winters moved from Australia to Europe.
When you download a photoset of a model, it includes a small bio sheet for the model.
The model sheet includes:
And maybe a few small details about what the model likes or is doing.
The age of the model refers to the age she was at the time the photoset was posted to the site. (I believe that's what it's supposed to refer to. Less probable, it was the age the model was at the time of the photo shoot.)
Anyway, the computer program that is responsible for printing out the bio sheet has been, in error, I believe, now set up to print the age the model is currently.
On the Metart site, there is a bio section for each model, and that section gives the current age of the model.
But the downloaded bio sheet, that comes with a specific photoset, is supposed to give the age of the model at the time the photoset was posted to the site.
Instead, it now gives the current age of the model.
Met-Art is probably the biggest site for softcore teen photography, based on content.
And the site just keeps getting bigger. They add up to 6 photosets and videos per day. I don't know of any softcore teen photo site that comes close to that in terms of updates.
But over the years, they also tinker with the site to make it user friendly. They have a massive amount of content, but I feel the site is very easy to use.
One example of how they to make the contents more accessible/user friendly:
Years ago, the naming system for zip downloads of photosets used a combination of letters and numbers. Then they switched to a different system, where the filenames were much longer, but that tried to describe the file contents more clearly. The system they use now is much improved:
It gives the site name, the date the photoset was posted at Met-Art, the name of the photoset, the model(s) featured in the photoset, the photographer, and the definition of the photoset (low, medium, or high).
Would be a photoset posted on 2011-05-08, with the title, "Presenting Felicia", featuring the model Felicia B, by the photographer Dolce, and the definition is high.
Personally, I would rather that the name of the model comes before the name of the photoset. And I would prefer the date of the set comes before the name of the photoset. For example:
Felicia B-2011.05.08-Presenting Felicia
That would make more sense, and make it easier to categorize, as far as I can see.
Because when you are looking over your photosets, you want to know who the model is, when the photoset was posted, and then the name of the photoset.
I pay less attention to who the photographer is. And I try to keep all the Met-Art sets in a common group for Met-Art.
But it's nice that Met-Art tries, on a constant basis, to make the site more user-friendly.
I visit Met-Art more often than I go to any museum. For one, it's easier to visit. For another, the contents are more interesting. For another, Met-Art is like a museum, that is cultural, uplifting, and stimulates the mind.
There are very few porn sites that fit that description.
This is not a news flash. They've always been boring.
I get more fun watching some commercials than I get out of watching most Metart videos. How do they make videos of beautiful, lovely models getting undressed so boring?
Many of their photosets are alluring, lovely, outstanding, really gorgeous to look at.
But my main question is: why can the Metart photosets be so alluring? And at the same time, their videos so boring?
Separately, when the downloaded Metart videos play back, there is sometimes a mosaic effect where the colors are sometimes pixellated, and that is just another distracting effect. What causes this? I don't get this effect watching videos I download from Diesel network or Teen Mega World or other sites I download from.
I don't have a gaming computer, that is set up for fast visual effects. But my laptop, and my desktop, are both fairly new, within the last year, so I should be able to play back even the 1080p videos with no problems, I would think.
