Digital Desire Review by Duke Digital Desire

Review by Duke

Released Dec 17, '14 , Written Dec 10, '14
Intro

Digital Desire is a long-running site with a collection of high-quality downloadable content from photographer, J. Stephen Hicks. It's been around for well over a decade and contains over three thousand photo galleries and over one thousand videos. The style is erotic glamour softcore with beautiful models in solo and the occasional girl/girl shoot. The guest tour provides a nice preview in terms of the content samples that will give you a feel for the models and style. A section under the Company/Who Are We? header link gives background details about their concept and history. For membership they've kept the monthly price quite low at just under twenty bucks a month.


The Pros

  J. Stephen Hicks Photography/Videos, Stylish Glamour Softcore.

Digital Desire's content is top-flight glamour softcore with gorgeous models. It meets the high expectations you'd have from a professional photographer site with all sorts of indoor/outdoor settings, clothing types, and hot babes. Solo erotic teasing softcore dominates the collection and then they drop in the occasional girl/girl scene as well.

  Dedicated Sections of Backstage & Casting Content.

To go along with the site's main glamour/erotic shoots there are Backstage and Talent Search (i.e. casting) content with a bunch of photo galleries and a few videos in the backstage area. This stuff adds brings a nice little extra element to the content and I particularly like the talent search which are a wide mix of girls and quite raw photos compared to the main content's polished look.

  Large Site, Steady Updates & Sharp Site Design/Tools.

Content dates reach back to 2000 on the photos and 2004 on the videos so it is a site with more than a decade's worth of content. Totals are over three thousand for galleries and one thousand for videos. Updates are made just about daily and there is a long track-record of growth. The member's area design is professional and sharp with content filtering tools and a model index.

  High-Res Photos & HD Newer Videos, Nice DL Options.

Pictures quality is 3000x2000 at the highest level and they have up to five image sizes for online viewing. There are gallery zips for saving the sets. Videos have MP4/WMV full-scene downloads up to 1920x1080 HD which looks excellent. There are a range of other quality levels along with in-browser Flash streaming.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Members can post feedback and comments on the content and there is a lot of activity from users. The posts make for some interesting reading as users as they share their opinions on the models and shoots.
  • Digital Desire has a site blog with photos and written posts along with a Twitter @DigitalDesire1. There is also a message board that is somewhat active with occasional posts and threads.
  • The monthly price is pretty inexpensive at around twenty bucks.

The Cons

  Content Quality Varies, One Quality Level for Gallery Zips.

As you head back into the archives the quality options do dip with mid-range pictures topping out at around 1600x1067 and then 1024x670 for the oldest. While they do have multiple levels for online viewing they do only have one quality for the zip downloads which is surprising to me for a photographer-based collection like this. The videos also have some HD that are at 1280x720 and then older movies are standard-def at 640x480.

  No Model Information, Some Models with Photos Only.

The model index is a summary of the girls' appearances however there aren't background info or physical stats provided. Same for the content shoots where there aren't written summaries of the action. Amount of content by model does vary quite a bit and I did run into a number of girls that have just photos without videos. Some girls have an array of shoots and others can have just one or two galleries.

Minor Negatives:

  • No file size information is provided on the video or gallery zip downloads.
  • The 5-star member rating system isn't all that useful. Nearly all the content items fall between 3.5 to 5 stars so that type of system doesn't really tell you much.
  • Ther is a pre-checked cross-sell on the join page and also a couple member's area upsells like live cams.

The other
  • Videos have soft background music.

Bottom Line

Beautiful girls in stylish softcore photos/videos from photographer J. Stephen Hicks.

Digital Desire matches up to the expectations I have for a professional photographer's site. The design is sharp and stylish as is his softcore content. I love that they mix in quite a lot of behind-the-scenes and talent casting galleries which adds another dimension to the archive. The site has been around a long time, continues to update, and has increased the content quality along the way. All around it's an impressive site for softcore fans looking for a collection that mixes together both photo and video content.
