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.
Was a member approx. 4 months prior to this review.
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

Following my recent review, my subscription ends in a few days and this is my last time home, so I've just downloaded the last material I will get from here....
We kept a film with my favourite model Susie (Dido elsewhere) to watch at the end... what a shocker. It was a washed-out, blocky, pixelated mess - I can't believe anything this technically poor was put on a professional site, effectively unwatchable. As I said in my review, clearly no-one is bothering to check on the quality of the material any more.
I also quickly looked at another film - it was a DP scene with James Deen, so it had a pretty high uggh factor to start with but it did have a sort of creepy fascination. The girl was a scraggy little thing with buck teeth, an average little porn girl and a long way short of the standard x-art used to have. It was just shot from the middle distance with no style, and the end was careless - a guy came on her face, a quick clunk edit to a shot of her with obvious fake cum for 2 seconds and clunk, the film stopped. No time or care taken at all.
These two films sum up why I am out of this site... It really isn't glamcore any more.
I for one wish X-Art would hurry up and launch their harder-hardcore version -- it that is indeed still in the pipeline.
I keep looking for videos that explore more vigorous anal and facials but with X-Art models, style, production values and beauty.
One idea I've become increasingly drawn to is seeing "glamour bukkake" or high-end, high-quality art videos devoted to women consuming semen slowly from their faces. It doesn't have to be a gross-out 20 men who provide the semen, but it might be from 2 or 3 guys.
The point is there really aren't any HQ artistic videos exploring the semen fetish today out there. Glamorous facials that take some camera time (like 5-15 minutes) and show lots of semen worshiping and slow semen eating -- this sort of fetish I would love to see from X-Art.
All with lots of eye contact.
Many men get off only after the male actor has ejaculated. For that very reason, X-Art and other glamour sites ought to spend more time on the post-cum head and various fetishistic ways of eating cum. Perhaps from champagne glasses or pacifiers, perhaps just right off another female model's face, perhaps off a glass table top.
But something harder-edged and more fetishistic is in order. Not gross and mindless, like "1000 Facials" or some German/Japanese bukkake high-volume site, but something artistic and expressive of the love a woman can show for a man's sperm.
I joined this Website lst week with a 1 year subscription. Since then i'm struggeling with a lot of technical issues. Contacting Support but there is no solution:
- session timeout after 15 minutes, re-login forced
- Password is showing in clear text, not masked
- missing Login-button on Login-site
- missing file details on WMV-Files (runtime, codec, etc.)
- filesize of the Videos up to 1,4 GByte for 20 minutes (HD)
- downloading via IE10 native download Option results in Long time waiting (up to 60 minutes), downloadspeed starts with 2MByte/s and Drops down to 300kByte/s. some downloadmanager dosn't work (FDM)
The have nice Videos and pitureset's, but the usability of the Website is really nerving and not user-friendly.
I've had subscriptions at X-Art twice. The women are almost all gorgeous (d'oh), although a number of my favorites from 2011 are no longer appearing. Of late the videos have gotten (to me) repetitive and tedious. Far less g/g than previously and a lot more b/g, where they have fallen into their own pattern for every scene. I do prefer their gentle approach to sex over most h/c (no spitting, choking, atm, 40-min bangs) but now it's pretty boring.
X-Art has a new feature I just noticed. Live cams. I don't think it's a service that X-Art itself created. It's more like a link to a live cam feed that X-Art links to. So X-Art members can watch live cams, for free for the public chats, or by paying a fee to enter the private chats. Just like a lot of the adult sites seem to be doing.
I remember the old days when Met-Art had their live cam shows. But that was different, in that Met-Art itself created the live cam shows, and allowed members to watch the shows the girls put on for free (public chats), or by paying a fee to watch the private chats. The Met-Art cams were special, because the girls were regulars, and the shows they put on, which were mainly not that explicit, were really audience friendly, and the girls often developed a rapport with the audience members. It was more like a club than the live cams that are offered today.
Many of the live cams today, although supposedly free, are basically designed to cost the members money. The old Met-Art live cams were less designed to cost the members money. You could enjoy the girls shows for many hours each day for free.
Unfortunately, Met-Art dropped that service many years ago. They did offer a link to a live cam service afterwards, but that service was more like the ones that are currently being offered, which are designed to make money off the members, instead of being truly free.
I finally took the plunge and joined, very impressed
I was always impressed by xart looks and the models looked great, but had feared it maybe too soft for my tastes and not so into solo scenes.
But joined last night and have to say I'm really impressed, its softer hardcore that's for sure but makes a refreshing change and I find theres lots of models I like with either a lesbian or boy/girl scene and it's great to see not just solo stuff which I wouldn't of joined to be honest if that's all they did here, Its a really good site, I'll full review soon.
Site asks for username and password, and says the link may not be secure.
Sometimes, you're already in the members area, but you click a link to download a photoset or video, and you have to give your user name and password again. But what's worse, you see on the form where you enter the information, the notice: "The server uses Basic authentication, which means that the method used to send your user name and password to the server may not be secure."
So I log out, log in again, go to the model page, hit the link to download the video again, and I still get the popup asking for my user name and password, which the message that the method may not be secure.
As far as I know, I've never been a member of a paysite that asks me for my user name and password, at the same time telling me that I am using a link that may not be secure.
I've been blocked in the past, because a paysite said either my username or password had been hacked.
So I don't want to get blocked again, by using a non-secure link to send this information, that is supposed to be confidential.
But I still want to download content, and this is frustrating.
Not sure if I am allowed to post about another site here, but there is a link at Freeones for 1 month access to X-Art for $9.95. If you were waiting around for enough new content to make it worth your while, this may make it the right time to join/re-join. Cheers!
