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

Good quality pics and videos, nice women too though the scenes are rather boring. Doesnt seem to update very frequently and I reckon for the price a once ayear trip will enable you to get all the updates in one monthly go.
This is a very attractive looking site but browsing in the preview mode I have some doubts about the videos. 1080p Quicktime files are in some cases smaller than 200 megabytes when I'm used to single HD scenes being closer to one gigabyte in the least. Are they upscaled and heavily compressed or just very short?
I understand this used to be more of a photo site so could it be that those older videos despite their resolution were just a bonus?
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.
