Review of Erotique Digitale:
Sometimes when you go out, you see one of those art stores. And you look in the window. Some of the things you see, you say, hey, thats really cool! And some of the things you see, you wonder what the hell it is and why it is called art. But art is a subjective thing. One piece of artwork can mean the world to one person, and be a complete piece of junk to the person right behind them. Some would say that is the beauty of art, that it is so personal. Well porn is the same way. One mans good porn is anothers junk. And today it is even more relevant because we are talking about a really artsy porn site, Erotique Digitale.
Erotique Digitale is a website with a focus on what the artist calls "the new erotica." This erotica is a blend of glamour, fetish,and fashion pictures. It's very artsy and not for everyone. This site was formerly called Kellylind.com, so if you are familiar with that site, this is just it's continuation but in the form of a megasite, since they now have more content. Kelly Lind is actually the man behind the site and behind these pictures. So basically, if you are up for artsy erotica, keep reading!
When you first sign into Erotique Digitale, you are given a nice front page. There is a big picture of the latest picture update, not even a thumbnail but a picture, with the three previous listed as thumbnails underneath. There is one bigger thumbnail for the latest video as well. There is a description telling of the artists work. On the side there is a sidebar that can take you pretty much anywhere you would want to go in the site. Overall, this is a pretty clean site design that works really well.
The pictures are the big focus here. You have options! The pictures are organized by date, or you can also sort them by category. The categories here are pretty untraditional, and they include: Artistic Nudes, Fetish, Glamour, Toys, Experimental, Girlfriends, Innocents, and Women In Bloom. When you go to a gallery, you get some good thumbnails. Click on one and you get a pic thats 864 x 1152 pixels. There is a system in which when you click on the picture, you get thumbnails of the next and previous picture you can click on to move on in the gallery. Or, if you prefer, you can start a slideshow as well. You can also download a zip file of all of the pictures in a series. As far as options go, this site fires on all eight if you ask me.
The quality here is pretty stunning too. The pictures are very crisp and clear. They are also well thought out pictures, and some may say thought provoking. It's obvious that a lot of time and energy is put into the pictures. And the niche they have created for themselves actually works, but like I said, it might not be for everyone. I'm not the biggest fan, but I certainly can respect the time and effort it takes to do shots like these, and if you like this kind of stuff, this is really good.
There are also videos on this site. They come in either WMV or Quicktime format. All options are given to you in full video format. For both, you have the quality options of Dial Up - 128k, Cable/DSL - 256k, or T1/High Speed - 512k. Well just looking at these options you can see that even the high speed quality is about medium level. So the videos don't really stand up to the pictures as much. But they really aren't meant to. The videos here are more along the lines of additional material than actual standalone content. For example, a big portion of the videos are just behind the scenes stuff from the photoshoots. They are not horrible in quality, but I just think it's safer to say that these are cool additions to the pictures, but if you are looking for videos, it might be a safer bet to look elsewhere.
So what is this site all about? Well, it's very unreal. All of the girls are very made up, all of the shots are all very artsy. It's about as far from reality as you can go in porn. It's like the anti-reality site really. That was what I personally didn't care for, because I like to see stuff as its real. I know I am not everyone though, and there will definately be a market for this kind of stuff for sure. The girls are all really good looking, and that is definately a plus. Like I said, there is a big "made up" factor here though. The action here is definately not softcore, but it's artistic hardcore. One of the videos I downloaded even had fisting. But it made fisting seem so beautiful and natural, hehe. There is some artistic nude stuff, but there is also some hardcore stuff, so just because the pictures are beautiful don't pigeonhole it as a softcore site.
While there are no bonus sites per se, there is a section of extra photo shoots. There is also a webcam where you can check out the sets being photographed, as well as a journal. This all adds up to some decent stuff. Also, there is a trial option which is quite pricey, but at the same time, cheaper than the memberships and you can try to get a lot of the content in a day!
At the time of review, there were a total of 90 models, each with several photosets. There was a total of 154 videos as well. A very nice amount of content. Updates come every two or three days as well, so that is definately a big plus as well. Overall, there is a nice amount of content here and if you are a fan of the stuff you will be pleased.
Great quality photographs, plenty of content, and a nice update schedule make this site very awesome. Not everyone reading this will be into it, but if you take a combination of the previews and my description, and like the concept, than check it out, it's definately worth it!
