+Access to 579 titles which I believe is close to the entire Wicked libray.
+Content is dated and they update with one new movie each week..
+All the videos can be streamed online.
+All the videos are offered in the mp4 for download with 640x480 resolution for all them, while over 200 of the most recent titles are now also offered with 720p resolution and the last 40+ titltes are also offered in 1080p.
+Unilke most sites like this. You can actually download the entire movie rather than just the scenes. Resolution is the same as the scenes.
+Each movie/scene has multiple tags attached to it and it's possible to search using tags words.
+You catch for free all the Wicked live shows.
+You have access to some bonus content live BTS and award show stuff.
+You also stream over 3000 pages of videos in the bonus section(see con).
+the TBP discount is sweet.
-I don't know if it's recent but the site often stopped working for no apparent reason which requiried me to log back in.
-Advertising tends to take about 1/5 of all the pages and it's a lot more on certain pages.
-Load times to stream videos is a little long sometime.
-You get access to some camgirls but the good stuff requires that you pay for it so is it really worth it?
-There are over 3000 pages of bonus videos that you can view online but the tags are all wrong, you always get an error message going from one page to the next and quality is not very good on most videos.
*-I'm putting this in the con only because some people are rabid about condoms so be warned that Wicked is a condom company going back a long time.*
**Ihave been a fan of Wicked since the 90's so it's a little strange that I never thought of joining their site until now. I don't mind condoms and I prefer a story with my porn and this is basically what Wicked does. I suspect that they try to target more the couples market than the gonzo one but that doesn't mean that there isn't any heat in their scenes because there is. They also have a certain number of contract stars so if you are a fan of these ladies then you are almost obligated to join this site because most of them haven't done much except for work for Wicked.
**I was pleasantly surprised to see a studio site offer the majority of their library and even more so to see that you can actually download the entire movie and not just the individual sex scenes. I was happy to see that the video quality on the older title is quite decent. Resolution is only 640x480 but seeing as these movies were never filmed in HD then trying to convert into a higer resolution would probably be a really bad idea.
**My only major issue with the site is that it kept on stopping to work and you had to log back in and find the page you were on. The other one is in regards to the bonus videos. If you are going to bother and put some bonus videos then why not make sure the system works. Otherwise it's usueless filler that slows down the servers.
***The only people that should avoid this site are those looking for pure gonzo porn and those who can't watch porn that has condoms in it.***

Wicked Pictures is a studio that Iíve liked for years but never really downloaded much of their stuff. To make matters more difficult, there are two sites that are either operated by or affiliated with Wicked. Obviously the technical information in this review only applies to this site.
I started watching porn in the mid-1980s when Gonzo had yet to be invented. Most porn that could be rented in those days followed a fairly standard pattern: studios had a few contract models, the movies involved acting and had a plot. And there seemed to be a rule that every movie needed a lesbian scene. Wicked still subscribes to this formula for many of their movies, even the newer ones. This is neither good nor bad, but only to give you a sense of what youíll have access to.
At any given time Wicked has several models working on contract. There are pros and cons to this since if you like a model but donít like Wickedís style then youíre out of luck. If you donít like a particular model youíll end up seeing a lot more of her than youíd prefer, but on the other hand if you do like a specific model youíll have access to a lot of her work. I found several models that I really like had been Wicked contract girls so this site gave me a great opportunity to get some scenes I didnít have.
If there could be a ďWicked GirlĒ look, that look tends to be to the bigger-breasted women, many of whom are artificially enhanced. But as a fan of small breasts on petite women there was plenty to keep me happy too.
On another neutral note (for me, though it could be a pro or con for others) Wickedís policy is for condoms in all scenes except for oral. The guys still pull them off for the money shot though.
The site is fairly large, offering 577 DVDs. These range from DVDs released in the early 1990s to newer releases.
Navigation is fairly straightforward: you can sort the site using scenes or DVDs, and you can go to specific models. After that any sorting or searching begins to fall apart. Each movies has tags applied to it, but those tags arenít searchable and donít seem to have any impact on the search function either. For example, I searched the term Ďanalí and got many anal scenes, but I certainly didnít get all the anal scenes with that search. They really need to have a better search function.
When you open a DVD page there is a large screen at the top of the page where the movie can be streamed. There are a list of tags and performers, and then vertically down the right side of the page there are small thumbnails for each scene. The good news is that you can download the entire video very easily. The bad news is that if all you want are scenes this can be more confusing. Once you open a page for a specific scene the only information available is the female modelís name. There are no tags on these pages to give any indication as to whatís in the scene Ė just who. I downloaded scenes that I normally wouldnít have because the only information I had was female talent. For example, if I went to movie XYZ I could see that the Ďanalí tag is there so there is anal in the movie, but site doesnít tell me which scene has anal. I even downloaded what I though were b/g scenes that were actually lesbian.
Viewing the scenes is easy. There is a streaming option right on the page (which doesnít download or play automatically Ė full marks for that!). Downloading the scenes is easy using a drop-down menu to select the available resolutions. I give the site credit for making good quality uploads available. Obviously the older material wonít look as good, but on the newer material options are available. While not all options are available on all scenes, the possibilities are: DVD, 720p, 1080p and iPod. Iíd normally have selected the 720p but I found that the DVD quality was quite good so I chose that Ė and saved some disk space too. One caveat: the files are only available as mp4. No other options are available. The DVD files come in at 720x400 @ 800+ kb/s and 24fps. They look better than the specs suggest, and the HD stuff looks excellent.
Download managers are supported with no obvious timeouts. Download speeds were up to usual standards for similar sites.
The site does update by (apparently) adding one DVD a week. The schedule isnít easy to determine because they only use a ďreleaseĒ date which with older titles is clearly the date the original movie was released (it certainly wasnít added to the site in 1993) and with more recently added titles seems to be the date it was uploaded to the site.
The bottom line is that while the site has some flaws, Iíd still recommend it. Wicked isnít cookie-cutter porn like so many other studios. The material is great, I only wish the site did that material justice. And with the TBP/PU discount, the site is a good value.

Just thought I would warn folks, that someone appears to be hacking passwords to this site, I used a relatively complex password, yet it was apparently hacked as someone ran up $300 in charges or so on the cam sites here - which I had never even used let alone paid extra for, so make sure your password is quite secure if you choose to join here (customer support was nice and say the issue is resolved and I will be refunded the money, but still a nuisance).
I also had a cancellation issue here, I swear I cancelled it on their site yet continued to be rebilled, perhaps I just didn't click enough of the "are you sure" type buttons, but I think I am going to be avoiding this biller from now on (paywp).
Please note that I'm not even remotely suggesting that someone was trying to pull a fast one, I merely want to post that I had a membership cancellation issue in case it happens to more than just me.
I joined this site on August 28 through the site. The biller was Epoch. I didn't receive an email confirmation but the correct charge appeared on my credit card statement.
Today (September 22) I went to the Epoch site to cancel my membership but the site had no record of it. I used Epoch's chat function and the staff member there couldn't find it either. I was on with the support staff for about 15 mins before they could locate the charge and cancel the rebill. I asked, but they had no explanation for why I couldn't locate the membership on their site and why it took so long for their own staff to locate it. I did appreciate the Epoch staff patience because they certainly said and had reason to believe that I had made an error and the charge was actually with another biller.
I have no idea if this is a warning to others or just an unusual circumstance. Others may want to weigh in on their experiences. Prospective members should be aware that there was a problem cancelling.
I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on the special price we have for Wicked Pictures. The special $14.95 price is going up after today. Don't worry.... It is not all bad news! We have been given a special $19.95 price that we can offer our users. The new price is still a great value at $10 off regular price & the lowest you will be able to find.
So if you had an interested in checking out this site, you might want to do it today!
I have really liked the content I have seen from Wicked and as someone who thinks Brazzers has really turned their network around, I find myself willing to give most any site they are involved with a try. It has a good price so I will probably join it anyway, but they really could benefit from a better tour. My main thing when considering joining a site I've never joined is to be able to see the models they have. Wicked Pictures tour shows maybe 12-16 models and tells how much content they have of those models, but when you click the model list to see the other models, it takes you to a join page instead of the model list.
I don't know if this is something they are maybe working on, but being able to see a full list of the models would have made me join already. Plus all their other sites have full tours, so I don't really understand why Wicked Pictures doesn't. One model in particular has become a "reason to join" but she may not be on here, Jynx Maze. And if it's not something they're working on, maybe a little nudge to consider it? Everything looks good with the site, content, price, would be a shame to possibly lose potential customers because of a lack of preview options to view available models.
It is still quite lacking, and while they have a note at the top listing all the great features that will be added, none of them currently exist. It states they will add photos, forum, behind the scenes stuff, and search in 2011 (like April or December?). I am sort of curious why they bothered to launch the beta before adding some of these items, particularly search/photos/ratings/model thumbnails.
Luckily one can still access the old site which still appears to have most of the above. Also, a couple of the movies I have downloaded have the most ridiculous watermark I have ever scene - a solid Wicked smack in the middle of the video.
Their old site was by no means impressive, but it does have some nice categorization, a search feature, and most of the models in the index had a photo attached to them (many don't on the new site).
That said, I still generally like their material (aside from the excessive fake breasts) and the discount price is certainly excellent ($15). Hopefully they will finish the job with the new site shortly.
I would vote WickedPictures.com the #1 Most Confoundingly Directionless Site on the internet. Two weeks ago they had me raving about the huge new pics in their new galleries. Then I logged in yesterday to see that they were promoting their new Members Area, which has NO Galleries - No Pics - None! That's easily half the material on the current site and - for a pic fan - a big reason for the appeal of the site. I would be thinking - "oh, they just need a day or 2 to add the galleries" except that nowhere on the newest site promo does it even mention pics or galleries - it's all about how many vid scenes they have.
Oh, and on the old site, which we still have access to temporarily, the newest galleries are not the new huge size pics, they're back closer to what they used to be.
Oh, and on the new site, the big "upgrade" they promote is the ability to stream and download all vids at 720p - not one of the vids I tested had the sound synched with the vid - not one!
I was completely blown away to log onto WickedPictures.com today and see that the newest pics of Kaylani Lei are posted at an immense 2832 X 4256 - I love seeing every detail of her gorgeous bod - including her wonderful eraser-like erect nipples - mmmmmmmmmm.
I hope this is a change that stays. I wouldn't be surprised if some members complain about how long pics load. I don't care, since when they load, they look so freaking awesome!
Now if they could correct the date of the upcoming Live Show - it's saying the next one is December 6th - and I don't think they mean 2011. Pardon me - I own no time machine.
