The main membership page is quite busy, but everything is organized in such a way that it does not at all feel overwhelming; preview filters are arranged in tabs, browse-tools are out of sight until you choose to employ them, and the main menu wisely sticks to only the bare necessities. So, with no cumbersome navigation to obstruct me, I dove headfirst into a sea of exquisitely hardcore sensuality.
This is a case where the tour page gives you a very good idea of what's in store for you in the membership area. The acts we witness are undeniably hardcore — solo masturbation employing a wide variety of toys, lesbian cunnilingus, energetic doggystyle poundings, etc. — but they are softened via a clever mix of romantic elements(like the episode where Ryan Ryder croons for Anissa Kate or the countless others where couples lovingly kiss and caress), carefully timed soft music, mood lighting, and peaceful and serene, damn near idyllic settings.
I also have to applaud them for their choices in performers. Unlike a lot of the other MET Art
sites, Sex Art
makes use of quite a few well known porn stars. But keeping with their rather rigid standards for a more soft, natural look, they have avoided the, shall we say, battleworn performers. It must have been difficult to find performers well experienced in hardcore who were also capable of showing a softer side, but they managed to do just that, and the results are stunning.
I was also impressed with their output. The site launched mid-2012, but despite that it has managed to amass an impressive 1059 videos and 1477 galleries. Looking back through their archive, I see they have been averaging 13 new videos and 17-18 new galleries each month on a consistent basis, which translates to daily updates. So, you certainly won't have to worry about getting your money's worth.
Another great thing about this site is that they are making constant improvements. Looking back at their oldest updates, it is clear that they have expanded their repertoire of camera, lighting, and editing techniques. And despite having already filmed so many episodes, they are still constantly coming up with settings and scenarios for their lovebirds.
One recent notable improvement is in the area of video playback quality. Since the site's debut, they have offered 720p and 1080p high-definition, but on March 8th, of 2017, they made the jump to 4k HD with an update entitled Tryin' To Resist
. Oh, and just in case you are worried about the hefty file size that a 4k entails, don't. Just as promised on the tour, download speeds 'round these parts are "blazing fast." In fact, the last scene I downloaded clocked in at 8 megs-per-second.
But if you aren't into HD video for whatever reason, they've got you covered, too. Every scene can be streamed or download in 4 different playback options ranging from 270p SD all the way up to 1080p HD.
Of course, any of you familiar with the other Art sites are probably wondering about the still photography. Well, just as expected it is positively stellar, showing similar levels of care and detail that one would expect from MET Art
. Sets sometimes contain as many 140 images, and they are available in in 4 different high-res options: Low(1,024 x 682), Medium(1,365 x 2,048), and High(5,000 x 3,333). The images range from 12-22 megapixels, and are clearly shot on good gear, too, so you don't have to worry about that high-res, blown-up rubbish found on other sites that will remain nameless.
To be honest, I had a hard time finding anything to complain about here. I suppose my only legitimate gripe would be that, while the model pages are loaded with lots of helpful options, they are awfully light on information. The vital stats and country of origin were a nice touch, but I do wish they would have included a bio, however brief.
With so many raunchy hardcore sites on the market, all blending together in an indiscernible sea of filth, Sex Art
is like a breath of fresh of air. I think it will particularly appeal to those looking for something a bit softer and more sensual, and as one of the tour blurbs smartly pointed out, might even be ideal for guys out there looking to ease their wives and girlfriends into watching hardcore with them. It also gives you a lot of value for your money, as they are updating at a rapid pace, and showing the sort of constant adjustments and improvements that you'd hope to see at any site you are investing your hard-earned money in. I was particularly impressed with the recent addition of 4k HD, which, as far as I know, none of the other MET Art
sites have employed yet. What more can I say? I just can't recommend this one enough.
