My first impression of Explicite Art was of some very pretty girls in centerfold-style pics. As I took a closer look, I discovered that all the pics and videos in the site are the work of acclaimed French erotic photographer John B. Root and that the site updates every day - although the join page says the site updates 6 days per week. There is some very specific info given about the videos, including that they are offered in MPEG, DivX, WMV formats as well as for QuickTime and iPod, and the tour also says that the pics are available in zip sets.
The member area of Explicite Art delivers on most of the promises. First off, the member home page lists the latest updates for over a month, and since each is dated I can tell you that the site really does update 6 days per week. There have been 14 videos added in the past 30 days and 13 pic sets. On the left side of the page are search options so members can search the content by model or activity, and there is also the link to the live shows, and on the upper right are site navigation links.
Members can browse pics or videos by rating, date added or model name, or for those who prefer to browse by girl, there's a model index, as well. The site claims it offers 978 videos, but when I first counted the vids, I found 812. Then I clicked the ALL FILMS link located at the top right of the pages, and there I found 22 movies that each offer several full scenes. If that doesn't add up to 978 videos, it adds up to over 900, and that's pretty damned good.
The 812 movies in the ALL VIDEOS section are offered in WMV, 2 sizes of MP4, MPG and DivX, and all of these options are downloadable. The iPod videos are shown at 320x240 with a bitrate over 400kbps, and the next size up are the WMVs, which are 400x300. Next up comes the MPGs at 640x480, and tied for biggest are the DivX (which are AVIs) and the MP4's marked for QuickTime - these are shown at 720x576. All the videos are sharp and clear with good sound. Some of the large vids aren't quite as tall as the sizes listed might make you think since some have a black band at the top and bottom of the video.
Explicite Art offers 871 photo sets, each offering the pics in 2 sizes - the smaller pics are shown at 400x600 and the larger pics are sized from 1200x1800 to 2000x3000. The photos here range from good quality to magazine-pro, and most are not only extremely sexy but they're artistic. The photos range from centerfold-type nudes to hardcore, and the action ranges from stripping to showering to pissing to fucking and sucking. There's also plenty of dildo penetration, pussy close-ups and girl/girl play.
The models here are primarily European, most between 18 and maybe 26 and hot. There are some fresh, natural amateur girls here and also some babes who are made up and look like pro nude models. The photographer does a great job of capturing his models, as some seem playful, some sultry, some horny and some innocent. There's plenty of close-ups, medium shots and full body shots in the videos and pics, and there's also plenty of down and dirty sex. All in all, if you like what you see on the tour, expect to be both impressed and turned on by what you find in the member area of Explicite Art.
In addition to the other videos, there are 22 full movies in the ALL MOVIES section. Each of these movies is offered in multiple scenes in WMV format. Although only shown at 320x240, the scenes can be downloaded or streamed and unlike most videos you see in websites, these are beautifully shot and have plots that you can figure out even if you don't speak the language used in the movies. In fact, I was disappointed these videos weren't bigger because I think they are exceptional, and worth watching even if you're not a fan of 320x240 sized vids.
And let's not forget the live shows. Explicite Art offers their own live shows 24/7, and there were 2 girls online when I checked the show out. One was chatting and showing off, the other was masturbating by fingering her pussy. The video quality was good, but when I tried to chat my browser locked up. The live show here is not a third-party live show, but is exclusive to the site - as are the girls.
Explicite Art has a lot going for it from the frequent updates to the quality photography and high quality downloadable content. There's a video format for pretty much everyone and the pics are big and very good quality. Members can sort the content listings or search content by model or category. And let's not forget the live feeds. The best thing about the site is the girls - pretty, sexy, horny and there are all sorts of them sucking cock, fingering themselves, posing - you name it! John B. Root is an excellent erotic photographer, and he's created a site that is easy to use, has a lot to offer and features some of the hottest cuties around. If you're looking for a site that combines down and dirty porn with erotic art, I definitely recommend you check out Explicite Art!
