-One of my favorite glamcore sites.
-The selection of models is outstanding. Most of the models are either attractive or gorgeous.
The photography and videos focus on making the models as attractive as possible, and it really shows.
-Easy login. Username and password can be saved. No captcha required.
-Good site design. Can search site by updates, models, or videos.
-Large thumbnails clearly show what the models look like, what models are in each video or photoset.
-Long time before site timeout.
-Content has date posted to site.
-No download limits.
-Fast download speeds. I get over 2.1 MB/sec, which is close to my max download speed.
-Download manager works. I use DownThemAll.
-Videos and photo sets are professionally shot. Excellent lighting, good colors, good sound control (no random extraneous noises), most of the photos and videos are well-focused.
-Good update rate. Last couple of weeks, they have been adding one video or photoset per day.
-The cons are basically minor. This is one of the best glamcore sites available. I'm basing that on the quality of the models (attractive to absolutely gorgeous), the high quality of the videos and photosets, how easy the site is to use).
-No search function if want to search by type of sex action, hair color of model, breast size, or other factors.
-If you don't like glamcore (some PU members call this heartcore), you won't like this site. There is no gonzo sex, no rough treatment of women.
-Many of the videos have brief moments where the video is slighty blurry. This is an "artistic effect", which I find stupid and annoying. I want my videos crystal clear, not crystal clear, with occasional blurry shots mixed in.
-Glamcore usually has soft "mood music" in the background. I prefer a video without any "mood music" or any background music.
-Models are white, late teens to early 20s. Some PU members might want a wider variety of models, different races, more of an age spread.
This is one of the best glamcore sites on the Internet. The models range from merely attractive to drop-dead gorgeous. The videos and photosets are high quality, professionally shot, to emphasize the beauty of the models. The sex is slow, sensuous, romantic.
There is a mix of solo, boy-girl, girl-girl. There are a few with 2 boys-1 girl, 1 boy-2 girls, 2 boys-2 girls.
I believe the site contents are exclusive. Although many of the models can be found at other sites, the videos and photosets at the site are exclusive.
There is a nice amount of content. The site has been around a number of years (2009 or earlier?). It used to be called "Beauty is Divine". When it first started, it was strictly a softcore teen glamor site. I don't believe it had any videos, only photosets. Each photoset had a small number of photos, and the models were uniformly lovely. The photography was high quality. Then the site name was changed to X-Art, and they started adding videos, and changing the approach from softcore to erotic glamor, which slowly evolved to glamcore, where the photosets and videos show actual sex.
Photosets can be viewed online, or downloaded.
Photosets from the last few years have about 100+ photos per set.
The earliest photosets had 25 or fewer photos per set.
Download options include a zip file in three definitions:
Videos can be streamed online or downloaded.
Download options have choice of many definitions:

If you like tender young teens, in gorgeously photographed photos and videos, then this site is worth visiting.
As I said, this is one of my favorite glamcore teen sites.

excellent picture and vid quality, easy search of models.
Video presentation can be downright awful with every single video opening with constant fadeouts to a blank screen and back again. One video of a new update in february is 12 mins long the first 3.5 mins are unwatchable because of this constant fading out. Weather its supposed to be arty or something I just find it extremely annoying and distracting when I want to be concentrating on the action of the girl, not wondering if the video is going to fadeout yet again. This is a MAJOR issue for me.
Excellent all round but but the terrible presentation in the opening minutes of videos really must be sorted out.

+ Strikingly beautiful models. (Tend to be young/natural looking)
+ Sex scenes are well produced/shot.
+ 3 content updates a week. (Mix of video/galleries)
+ Good monthly rate. $19.95 without a TBP discount.
+ Content appears to be exclusive.
+ A large portion of the video content is hardcore, boy/girl.
+ Good mix of Euro and American girls.
- videos start with music and credits rolling before the action starts.
- Struggled with using the download manager on this site.
- While the models are beautiful, they tend to have favorite girls that show up frequently in the updates. A little more variety would be nice.
I enjoy the young, natural models and have become bored with the handful of European sites using the same models, doing the same old sex scenes. X-Art is a refreshing change.
X-Art delivers on their tag line "Beautiful erotica". Many sites choose beautiful models, as X-Art has done. They take it a step further using creativity in setting up sensual sex scenes and know how to use the camera to accentuate the models and the sex.
If you prefer rougher sex (slapping, spitting, anal, etc.) you may be a little bored with this site. Aside from that, the sex is definitely not softcore. Most of the boy/girl sex scenes have some combination of blowjobs, handjobs and intercourse from every angle. I'd say about two out of every three videos is boy/girl. The rest are a combination of lesbian and solo.
The Web site is intuitive and easy to navigate. Videos can be sorted by update or most popular. The models can be sorted by popularity, newest model or model age. There doesn't seem to be a way to sort/filter picture galleries accept seeing them as they come in on the update tab or by finding a model and accessing the gallery through her page.

- Many very attractive models
- Sensual hardcore scenes and solo
- Mix of European and US models
- Great photography and videography
- Good update schedule - 3 per week
- Login doesn't time out
- Material improving in terms of quality and creativity
- $=£ regional pricing
- Short on ethnic diversity
- Likewise for ages - most models are very young
- A few anal scenes, not really my thing
- Likewise for group
- Basic browsing/searching facilities
- Could do with a just little more tease
- Arguably a bit formulaic
- Not all videos and photosets correspond
I've never really been much into hardcore; but following an enjoyable join at Joymii, this new-fangled artcore genre is growing on me (something is growing, anyway) - although a bit idealised, I like the portrayal of sharing sex between couples - and taken with a pinch of salt, I find it very arousing.
So I figured I'd take advantage of a good offer I received and try it out.... speaking of which, I'll get the main negative out of the way. This seems to have joined the ranks of sites who think that $1=£1; so the price for those of us in the UK is about 60% higher. I'm skirting over this since the offer I received seemed to work in $, but UK/Euro users may want to try joining via eg Tunnelbear.
The basic stats of the site:
* Approx 150 models
* Approx 300 photo sets, dating back to 2008, approx 60 shots in each, in zips, up to 4K
* Approx 200 videos, from 2009, approx 10-15 mins, in combinations of WMV/MPEG/MOV, up to 1080
The look of the site is clean and modern, but the navigation is fairly basic; there is a model index; then just a list of updates, either all in one page, just all videos, or browsing all updates by theme: GB/GG/Group/Solo. They have enough material here to invest in a bit more ease of use; but it's nothing to complain too much about. Clicking into each gallery allows you to rate and comment on the gallery, which is a nice touch - although there are plenty of daft ones there.
The sites's tagline - and the theme - is Beautiful erotica, which I guess sums it up; hardcore sex, but more tender, realistic and creatively/artfully shot than regular porn sites. Actually, looking at the earlier material, they seem to have started out largely with solo photoshoots - I found them a bit clinical and dull, but they have got into their stride - it's good to see a site where the material is getting better as opposed to going downhill like so many.
It's very, very similar to Joymii - I think Joymii started afterwards so I suspect it borrowed heavily from X-Art - imitation and flattery, etc. It is therefore very easy to compare the two; so I'll expand on a few differences/similarities:
* Models: both sites have a mix of US and European models; many popular girls appear there, and there is large overlap between the two. But X-Art focuses more on the 18-21 range; I prefer a slightly broader range, but either way they are all stunning.
* The photography and videography in both are without fault. However, I find a little more creativeness in Joymii's camera angles, colour and sets; X-Art's sets are a bit over-idealised, tropical cabanas and the like. OTOH, some recent videos at X-Art have a bit more of a story - although there's no dialog, they have lent it a very cinematic feel, which is interesting and adds to the atmosphere. In particularly a couple of voyeuristic scenes which - with the subjects implied consent/collusion, is very exciting - more of this please!
* Each site has a fairly similar split of solo, girl/girl and girl/boy material; all of which works for me, although I'm more interested in the actual sex scenes here. X-Art goes a bit further with some group sex scenes and also some anal; neither of which really work for me.
* Joymii has the better site design (over-AJAXing it notwithstanding); I also like the fact that all updates are paired - one photo set and one video per scene. Many videos on X-Art don't have matching sets.
* Both sites could do with just a bit more of an element of tease. The clothes come off just a bit too quickly, and whereas I can understand they don't want to feature girls dolled up in tawdry lingerie, some more undressing wouldn't go amiss.
Overall, this is a great site; and although possibly one of the originals, it is good that other sites in the genre - as listed in Elephant's post on the forum - are keeping it on it's toes - some of the newer material there has very high production values to keep them in the running. I slightly preferred Joymii, but purely as a matter of personal taste; so I'll score this only slightly lower - but it loses another point or two for heavily biased regional pricing!

- Unbelievable hot models
- Great use of light in films, awesome and stunning
- Great download option and now in 1920 x 1080
- Awesome group scenes, very unique and fresh
- Photo quality is stunning 8 times out of 10
- Scenes now are just right length (they were too short)
- Nice clothes especially nice white panties seen often
- Great at hiding tattoos
- Some earlier films are very short
- Some earlier films have music all the way through
- Too many cum shots on the back, not my cup of tea
- Not many anal scenes
- Some scenes not 1920 x 1080
- Some girls only have photos which is frustrating for a video fan
- Search options could be better
Is it perfect, well no site is, did I enjoy it (or am I enjoying it as I've only been a member for a week), hell yeah this site has lots going for it and in a couple of years I think will be truly awesome, especially if they get to 5 or 7 updates a week. Currently though it's not bad with 3 updates a week.
I would of liked more anal scenes as shot in this beautiful style they look truly hot, but anyway I get not everyone likes anal scenes. cause the girls are so hot here seeing them is enough. I really loved their group sex scenes and would of loved more of them that's for sure, the one in the stretched limo with 4 girls and a guy was breathtaking and very unique.
Thing that sets this site apart from most sites is they can make the most beautiful movies, crystal clear closeups of faces, loads of angelic white light, coloured to perfection, don't ask me how they do it but it looks divine and really professionally done.
I liked and loved lots of the photos too, but some not so good, its hard to shoot people having sex on a camera though and you can't always capture the action in the shot without it looking like it was cut off. That said quite often here its simply perfection and you see a true classic photo that is oozing eroticity.
With some of the solo and lesbian work in photo here too, its damn right bloody mind blowing, some of the Franziska Facella ones are beyond dreamy, I've been a fan of hers for ages and she looks cute on other sites but here she is like a true angel and the makeup and light used on her is simply the best stuff my eyes have ever witnessed and I've seen some really good fashion photography which is a huge passion of mine.
Its a newish site so doesn't date back too far but I would say I totally recommend you take a visit here, it's really opened my eyes to how beautiful porn can actually be and it doesn't need to be women dressed up tarty and cheap, here the girls shine, they look stunning, they look to be having fun and it comes through in the movies.
If they do more group scenes and anal ones and get more facials too but all shot like this I'm going to be a fan for life. They are heading in a direction I would like to see porn, which comes away from its roots a bit and becomes all classy and sophisticated.
They lead the way to new horizons of porn I hope and its a case of getting more content and bringing back one of the girls with just photos and doing movies with them.
I can honestly say though with the calibre of models, never on any other site have I nearly clicked on every model, its unheard of with me to be honest, but there are so many gorgeous girls here it's unreal, where do they find them I don't know but many will have you falling for them.
I also loved the fact they try and hide tattoos, I really hope they try and keep tattoos away from this site as well as they can, a girl called Addison who looks absolutely stunning, just found she is called Mia Manarote and has one large one on her arm but in the awesome video of her I never noticed it, so much more beautiful without it in my opinion.
Over and out then but I did really enjoy this site.
I'm only rating it 92 because it is a smallish site but it's certainly heading in the right direction in my eyes.
Lastly I would also like to see tags more with say the category like threesome, anal. There is tabs on the video page Male-Female Couples, Group Sex, Lesbian and Single Girl but could do with more search options

A lot of the sets start with the model already nude or wearing very little so not much in the way of stripping or teasing
Following on from two excellent reviews of this site by rearadmiral and lk2fireone in the last week or so itís difficult to know what I can say about this site without repeating everything thatís already been said so Iíll just try and look at it from a different perspective as my main interest is solo softcore photography and I have little interest in the lesbian, boy/girl action or videos.
The earliest updates on X-Art are dated November 2007 and it looks as though it started out as a photo site for a couple of years with videos being gradually being introduced by the end of 2009. Today the site is more video focused and you can expect at least every other update to be a video. The site advertises ďupdates every Monday, Wednesday and FridayĒ but they seem to have stepped up the update rate recently and itís looking like about 5 updates a week in recent times.
After logging in the main navigation options you are provided with are ďupdatesĒ, ďvideosĒ, and ďmodelsĒ. Oddly they donít provide a separate category for those of us who only like to browse the photo collection. When selecting updates you will get all 500+ video and photo updates listed on one page so be prepared for a lot of scrolling. You can sort the updates by most recent, highest rated or title and you also have sub categories for solo, lesbian. boy/girl and group sex.
The model index is nicely presented listing all 140 models on one page with a nice sized 300 x 200 px preview picture along with her name, age and country of origin. You can sort the models by rating, date added, alphabetically or age. They donít provide any other search options if you wanted to search models by hair colour or breast size for example. The models are mostly 18 to early 20s here with a good mix of European and US girls but little ethnic variety. The stand out models for me here were Francesca and Caprice who both had a fair amount of updates each.
Clicking on a model will present you with all her available photo sets and videos so I decided the best way to find the solo photo sets I wanted would be to work my way through the model index alphabetically. 5 out of the first 6 models I checked didnít even have a solo photo set so I soon started to think I wasnít going to get a lot out of this site. Add in the fact that when I did find sets to download very often they only had 20 to 30+ photos in the set so it soon became apparent that this is not a high volume site for photo lovers on the scale of Met-Art, MPL Studios or Femjoy. In the end because some models didnít have any solo sets I just ended up downloading every solo and girl/girl set from the site which came to a grand total of just under 15,000 photos.
However what the site lacks in quantity of photos they certainly make up for in quality. These photo shoots are beautifully crafted and are as good as anything you would see at Met Art if not better in my opinion. The models are all naturally beautiful mostly without fake breasts or unsightly tattoos apart from the odd exception. I would guess there is some touching up going on in these photos because the modelís bodies always look absolutely flawless, moles and marks on the models skin that are visible in the videos have disappeared in the photos so if you like to see all the imperfections on the models then maybe this site would not be to your liking. I also love the photographerís style the way he creates the sets using a lot of white backgrounds, often the model will be presented on a bed covered in white sheets or against a backdrop of white curtains or on a white sofa and often the model will be bathed in a hazy sunlight as it penetrates a nearby window to give the whole thing a kind of dreamy look. Many of the shoots start out with the model already nude but on the occasions when the model does wear something often it is just some simple white lingerie to give the models this look of youthful innocence.
I wonít go in to any great detail on the video section in this review as itís not my area of expertise and was covered by the other recent reviews. Overall this is a high quality collection of photos and videos and my only real complaint as a photo lover was that it left me wanting more. With the siteís emphasis now shifting more towards videos and hardcore action only about 1 in every 6 updates hold any appeal for me so I canít see myself returning here any time soon. If your preference is for videos then you could probably add 10 points to my score.

X-Art isnít a site that Iíd normally join because I prefer porn that has a harder edge to it, so I was pleasantly surprised that I liked this site as much as I did. The site has that elusive combination of stunning models, excellent technical elements and a user-friendly website. Many sites get two of those components right but few have them all. Iím convinced that the sites that do get everything right do so because of site owners / webmasters who actually care about the material theyíre producing and putting on their site.
The site currently has 139 models. Most of those models have both videos and photos but there are a few who only do photos. Many donít have a lot of material available but there are a few who have lots of material so it balances out.
There isnít a lot of variety in the models; theyíre all Caucasian (with one or two Asians), young (18-25) and thin (but not skinny). This isnít a problem if, like me, you happen to like the type of models that the site selects, but if you prefer fuller-figured women or different races youíll not be as happy with the site. There is a mix of nationalities too.
The models are naturally beautiful, not the airbrushed, heavily made-up models that many other sites feature. Unique features like freckles are allowed to shine through, giving even more appeal.
The site has many things going for it, but one thing that really sets them apart is the chemistry between the models in the lesbian and b/g hardcore scenes. The chemistry is obvious because it exists, and also because it doesnít exist in most other sites. In most other sites the overriding feeling that the viewer gets is that here are two people being paid to have sex. Obviously the models here are also being paid, but they seem to be into the sex too. This is an assumption, but Iíll give credit to the models themselves and to the site staff who obviously play a role in creating and then capturing that chemistry. The chemistry in the scenes likely makes this a couples-friendly site.
The site offers lots of choice on how you can download or view the material. Videos can be streamed and downloaded. All videos have multiple options for downloads, though those vary depending on when the video was uploaded. The scenes are always available in WMV and Quicktime formats with lower resolutions for mobile devices being added more recently. WMVs and Quicktime videos are available in 960x540 and 1280x720 (5,000+ kbps) and in newer videos theyíre also available in 1920x1080 (8500+ kbps). I download the WMVs and theyíre in codec 7 and 30 fps. The videos are relatively short with the average being 10 to 12 minutes. A previous comment noted that these are too short, but I donít agree with that. The videos have a natural feel to them which lends itself to the shorter format. Subjectively, the videos look great.
The photos are also available in different resolutions Ė 1200, 2000 and 4000 pixels. Theyíre available as zips. The number of photos per set varies from a low of 30+ to a high of 120+ but the average set has about 80 photos in it.
The site updates daily on weekdays with either a video or photo set being added.
The site allows download managers (I use Free Download Manager) and there are no obvious timeouts.
An interesting feature is the use of original music in many of the scenes. Normally music isnít something that Iíd notice, but the choices here really do add to the feel of the scenes.
There isnít really anything to complain about, but I do have a couple of minor issues. I like behind-the-scenes clips Ė especially on sites like this where it gives a chance to see more of the modelís personality. While BTS material is available here, and even has its own tab, I canít figure out how to download the clips. It appears that the only option is to stream them. Iím assuming that the site made a conscious decision to do this, but I wish theyíd make them available for download.
There isnít a search function available, nor are there tags. The videos can be sorted, however, depending on theme (solo, g/g, b/g). Normally Iíd criticize a site for such a glaring omission, but in this case Iím not. The reason for that is that the site seems to be focused solely on the models. I realize Iím making yet another assumption here, but it is possible that the site made a decision to not offer a search function or tags as a means of keeping the models more real. Thatís how it feels anyway Ė I appreciate stumbling on an incredible hardcore scene with a beautiful model and that makes me appreciate it more than if I could select ďshaved pussy,Ē ďhardcoreĒ and ďanal.Ē Or maybe Iím just over-thinking this.
The bottom line for me is that Iíd highly recommend a membership at X-art. If you like the type of model featured on the site it has a lot of varied material available for a great price. Not only would I recommend the site, but itís on my list of sites to join again.

The girls here are all absolutely beautiful. If you like Met-Art or FemJoy, you will also really like this site. Although many of the same girls are here, most of them seem a little less inhibited and this is the only place I've seen were so many of them agreed to do sex scenes. Most sets include both images and videos (listed separately under each model's profile) and the videos are not just video of the photo session, they are all well done, dedicated videos. Both images and videos are some of the best quality I have seen on any site. The girls are natural, trimmed or shaved, and solid 9s on the combo body-face scale. Every image and every video is high quality, with no older shoots or videos to dissappoint. Even the music selection and timing in the videos seems well done.
Well...yes, there could be a little more content. The site, it seems, has only been around since 2008 or so. But in the balance between really good imagery and volume, I'm pretty happy here. I couldn't find a single set or even an image in a set that was just added to create filler. Quality beats quantity every time in this case. For the money, the site is well worth it.
This is a VERY well done site. The photographers and videographers do a spectacular job of focusing on the girls..and I don't just mean keeping them in focus. The sets, lighting and overall environment combine to create exceptional imagery. The videos seem pretty genuine and there are some really excellent videos both of solo girls, couple and girl-girl scenes. They've managed to tap every single exceptional European and American model. Go look at the model list and you may recognize many of the girls. Most are among the most beautiful in the industry. And, as I said, the crew here brings out the best in them...in every single set. Several of the models look far, far better than I've ever seen them on other sites. Perhaps it is, judging from the fact that many of the sets are in the sun or on an island someplace, that it seems these folks have a decent budget and can afford to take the models someplace really fun for the shoots.
Navigation on the site is good, allowing you to list by update, model names or model rankings. Downloads are fast. Image selection once in a set is good. Select the image size you want, click on the images tab and then any image you click on will open in the size selcted. You can then choose larger or smaller from within each image page (nice feature). Zips are available in several sizes, usually up to 2500x4000 pixels.
The images are all focused, lit and cropped nicely with no odd or distorted angles, giant panoramas or distractions in the images. Perhaps the only personal thing is that there is a slight shortage of images showing the entire model in a natural position (i.e. without the legs or feet cropped). I'm not a foot fetishist, but I do think several complete images of each model once she is undressed would be nice.
If you have been to to the top-tier photography sites like Femjoy, Met-art, Met-Models, Errotica-Archive, Earl Miller, Ron Harris, etc., then you owe it to yourself to check out X-art. If it isn't among the top-tier sites now, I sincerely believe it should and will be soon.

This site has some very good looking girls and has them in a wide variety of videos and pictures. Most models feature in Boy-Girl, Girl-Girl and Solo, so alot of variety.
-The girls have very good looking body's and faces
-There a few well known models there (Francesca, Caprice, and others)
Videos are in HD resolutions 1920x1080, 1280x720 and some lower resolutions for mobile devices such as phones, iPods and for people with lower bandwidths.
The video & picture quality are amazing. There is alot of attention payed to lighting and the sets, the sets and videos have a very clean look to them.
The videos are all watchable and have a unique feel to them, they don't get boring and repetitive like other sites.
Good download speeds, with support for download managers. There is no daily download limit.
(I used JDownloader and Flashgot)
Some models only have picture sets and don't show in any videos. But this is only a minor disappointment because the picture sets are normally very good.
Not much content, and isn't updated all that often (2-3 times a week).
The site has a very dreamy, erotica feel about it, the scenes have a very clean look to it, and would recommend this site to everyone.
The quality was very impressive, the sets were nice (Both indoor and outdoor), the clothes the models wore were nice (For the short period they were wearing them).
One thing i hate with most pornsites with Boy-Girl videos, they focus too much on the guys and not enough on the girls. X-art focuses on the girls mainly, and most of the time the guys aren't completly in the picture.
There isn't that much content, i did a siterip back in september and all up it was about 80-90gb (downloading 1080p videos and all picture sets).
But the price is very reasonable at only $20 US per month.
Here's a list of the video formats and resolutions
-1920x1080, 1280x720 & 960x540 are in the Apple .MOV format
-1280x720, & 960x540 are in Windows .WMV Format (But some newer videos have 1920x1080 in WMV Format)
-They also have a 640x480 for mobile devices but i am unsure of what codec it is
-They have pictures sets which are downloadable as Zip Formats, in high resolutions as high as 4000x4000
Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
- Around 130 video scenes and a lot more images (they update 3 times a week, twice with image sets and once with a video, the images go all the way back to 2007 so you do the math, but there are a lot :)
- Videos available in various resolutions up to 1920x1080 HD and images available in 1200, 2000 or 4000 PX.
- Some incredible images of young looking models, for the most part each scene has around 40-60 images and the girls usually start already naked or almost naked. Some very good, artistic shots and a lot of play with light on the girls forms and interesting angles.
- A lot of exclusive models, that look very good (you get to see nice breasts and round forms, but no extra fat)
- Starting to include hardcore and lesbian sex, and the videos are keeping the site's general vibe.
- Good download speeds/ no issues with downloads, log-in or navigation.
- Enjoyed the description of each scene, which although on the long side are nice erotic stories
- Videos are around 6-8 minutes each and the solo ones feel like they don't have much of a climax. For almost all videos the action starts as soon as the scenes opens, making for a bit of a rough-ish intro.
- I would enjoy a few more outfits (stockings, high heels etc.) A lot of the models are completely naked for the entire scene.
- Some of the models only have a 2-3 photo sets. I'd love it if they could get a few solo sets, a lesbian and a hardcore set from each girl.
- Some sets have as low as 10 photos. The 40-60 range is nice, especially since most girls start out naked, but why not have more images, since they already have the model in the studio and are paying her?
- The vibe of the videos can be either a big plus or a a negative. They start with a musical intro and are edited to feel very erotic/ dreamy. The camera doesn't really do close-ups of the girl, there are white sheets all over and the lighting feels very erotic. It's a unique vibe and some might love it.
I joined this site looking mostly for some solo shots of girls I haven't seen before. In that aspect the site delivers very well. They have around 100 models and are constantly updating with more girls. They select almost entiurely European and American models and while I wish they had more Asian or black girls, the selection they have so far looks great (Quite a few readheds, different body types and a lot of very cute faces). Also, while they do have a few better known models, for the most part I believe they showcase newcomers to the industry, with a lot of girls I have never seen before.
The photos and videos all have a very erotic approach. There is a lot of focus on light, shadows and forms. The scenes are named stuff like: "Just married", "Young love", "First time", "Sex, love and happiness" and each video starts with an orchestral musical piece that leads into the action. The entire focus is on the models, their supposed innocence and nudity.
There is a particular vibe to the site and it's consistent from the design, the elaborate descriptions of each scene (they are longer than many other site I've seen and each one seems to be unique and thought out, a mini erotic short story for each shot) to the type of models they choose, the locations and action in the scenes. It all feels like an artsy, softcore site although they have boy-girl scenes as well as a lot of toy play and lesbian sex.
If you're into that Teen-dreamy, 18 year old innocence vibe the site is very consistent and delivers excellently with a variety of models and types of scenes. They also have quite a loty of outdoors scenes as well as scenes inside large architectural structures. Very interesting from an artistic perspective and I saved many images to use as wallpapers.
The closest site I can compare it to is ftvgirls.com but here the girls seem to fit into the young adult, innocence niche more neatly than FTV. Also the quality here is much higher and downloads were much faster. Some other similar sites are of course Met-Art and Nubiles, but I'd say Nubiles is more hardcore than this site and Met-Art a more softcore.
Overall you have to make sure you like this type of content before joining since there is no network site to offer different content. Also you have to be sure you like photos since most of the content here is images (although they are updating new hardcore stuff regularly).
Now that we determined who the target audience is for this site I'll comment a bit on the negative aspects. Videos feel too short and many of the photos scenes are also on the short side. While I don't mind 8 minutes of video when they are as well edited as the content on this site. I do wish they would offer more variation. Different outfits, more stripping, foreplay before the sex or lesbian action would be nice.
Also I remember one scene with 3 girls where they only offer 13 images. That seems like a criminal waste. Even if the girls weren't going to do a lesbian scene they could have a few more shots of the three of them touching or getting each other naked.
Speaking of lesbian scenes, right now there is no really easy way to find all boy girl, lesbian or solo scenes. You can navigate the site by videos, all updates or model index. More options would be nice, a category search will become a must as the site grows.
Some more bonuses would also be nice. Right now aside from the main content all the site offers is a behind the scenes blog which is kind of interesting, but not extraordinary (Just some updates on where theya re shootinga and the occasional behind the scenes image). If they partnered up with another similar site they could offer a much better deal. (They do have some live chats, but I don't think they are part of the membership and cost extra)
Bottom line: The site is well done and offers good content even if it's a bit on the short site. Good quality and fast downloads. Hot models and nice boy-girl, toy and lesbian scenes. If you like any of the models in the preview or really like this type of sites X-art could be a good deal. If you want gonzo hardcore, anal sex or a bigger focus on clothing/ heavier make-up, this site will probably disappoint. Don't sign up expecting Brazzers or Reality Kings, sign up expecting a more hardcore version of Met-art.

This site has been around for a number of years.
It used to be called "Beauty Is Divine".
At that time it was strictly a softcore teen glamor site. There were no videos that I remember.
Most of the models were really stunning.
The problem was that you only had a small number of photosets, and each photoset had a small number of photos.
Then the name of the site changed a few years ago to "X-art".
They started adding videos to the site.
The videos over the last couple of years or so are becoming hardcore.
The videos have a short runtime, 10 minutes or less.
The videos are very high quality (in lighting, focus, high definition, etc.).
The photosets are also becoming not just softcore, but hardcore as well.
I think the photography of the photos is as good as any major photo site, but some PU members have commented they thought the photography at this site was not excellent.
This site is not a mega-site in the amount of photosets and videos. But almost all the models are extremely attractive. And the videos and photosets are extremely high quality.
There are definitely more photosets than videos at this site, but that is because of the site history, when the site was strictly photosets.
The current updates at the site include both photosets and videos.
The preview pages show you nice-sized thumbnails of many of the covers for the site photosets and videos. The preview could be improved by including sample photos, and by a few sample 1-minute videos, so you could get a clear idea of the quality of the photos and videos.
You will probably wish each photoset had more photos, because the models are mainly lovely, and you want to see more of them.
And the videos, at less than 10 minutes each, seem very short. You will almost certainly wish the videos were longer.
If you like the type of photography at this site, I think the
site is well worth at least a 1 month membership.
I'm thinking of taking this comment, and turning it into a site review, because it sure as hell looks like it could have been written as a site review.
Copyright Nov. 16, 2010, by lk2fireone, in case I do write a review of this site, and the material in this reply is used as the basis for a site review.
Thanks to the comments from the kind members here, I had a good idea of what to expect from this site. It's worth noting, however, that the updates appear to be coming every 2-3 days pretty steadily these days as opposed the every 3-4 days previously.
I like the content very much, and I don't regret joining. I'm a big fan of slender models doing girl/girl and solo and good photography, so this site seemed ideal for me. The content is a lot like MET-Art's, but the models are allowed to go where we always wished MET would let their models go and look great doing it. I can't think of any site that has better looking models *and* makes its models look better, MET included, cept perhaps Explicite-Art.
As other reviewers have stated, both the videos and the photo sets are short, and it's hard to tell why. The shoots take a long time to set up, and the models seem into it, and yet things are wrapped up awfully quickly, with a few exceptions. It often seems like such a gratuitous waste, and that may be the only negative I've found. You're kind of left thinking that there's a longer, less chopped-up version that's being sold elsewhere.
While I can't recommend a long-term commitment at this point, it's certainly worth a month's sub, to me anyway. I reckon that I got my 20 bucks worth, and will keep an eye on it to see if it might be worth a return visit later on. If ever they begain daily updates and/or longer videos *of the same quality* then I'd consider a long-term commitment.
This site has some absolutely yummy models. But as Drooler noted in a comment on July 29, 2009, in spite of the high-quality photos, the quantity of pix seems small. Any recent members have an opinion on whether the site is worth joining for a month? Like I said, some of the models are fucking gorgeous.
