Digital Desire Review by Will Digital Desire

Review by Will

Released May 24, '16 , Written May 2, '16

It might make you feel rather old, but yes, Digital Desire has been online for over 15 years now. But that longevity doesn't mean that this gorgeous collection has stopped evolving. Because although it's still primarily a masturbation site, there's now lesbian and straight action, still very artistically shot with production values that remain through the roof. Founding photographer J. Stephen Hicks may no longer be with us since his passing in 2013, but his commitment to high-quality content lives on here.

The Pros

  Beautiful Women Beautifully Captured

It always helps to have a professional photographers behind the scenes when it comes to adult productions. It really elevates the scene to something sophisticated and classy that might even be called "erotica" rather than merely pornography. Of course, high production values can only do so much for a site, because for the content to be truly outstanding, gorgeous models are needed. This site has those in spades.

  Sometimes You Want to See How the Sausage is Made

You might lose your appetite if you knew what sausage casing was made from, or if you knew how fast food chicken nuggets are manufactured, you might not order them ever again. Yet, when it comes to the making of the material here, you might actually enjoy seeing the goings-on backstage and witness some of the casting experience. The talent search in particular gives you the chance to see the girls in a rawer state compared to their polished appearance in the final product.

  The Heat Goes On - High-Quality Continues

They're adding Full HD footage along with crisp high-res photos (3000x2000) as frequently as they have for quite some time now. Currently, there are over 3,250 videos and more than 1,360 photo sets so there's already an abundance of quality content to enjoy. Surely that's evidence of their commitment to continuously growing a collection that's been the calling card of this amazing site for more than a decade now.

Other Good Stuff:

  • A lot of sites let you give feedback, but not all of them have members who actively participate in the process. That's not the case here, because the members really let this company know what they think of the material.
  • There's a blog that encourages even more interaction with members. There's also a Twitter feed and they always seem to tweet at least once or twice a week.

The Cons

  Quality Does Vary - As You Would Expect

With more than 15 years online, you know that not all of the content is going to be equally stellar in quality. Not all of the fine photography is presented to you in high-res images, as the oldest pics are only 1024x670 in resolution. And, surprise, surprise, not all of the footage comes in HD, let alone Full HD. Of course, it's the older archived content that's affected by the quality issues.

  No Bio for Models and Some Have Limited Content

You won't get any info about the beautiful women here through the model index, because there aren't any bios for the babes. Also, apparently some of the models only appear in photos and only a spread or two. It makes sense, though, because they seek out fresh talent all the time and there will always be girls who do a one-and-done when it comes to an erotic photo shoot.

  You Must Commit To Three Months Minimum

There no longer appears to be a monthly membership option. Instead you must join for at least 90 days, but the cost is quite reasonable - at least once you break down what each month is. Still, for some folks, paying $40 at once will be quite the pricey commitment, although at least you can sample some free pics and watch trailers before joining.

Minor Negatives:

  • There's a pre-checked cross sale and some member area upsells, like more than one link to white label webcams.

Bottom Line

Quality has long been the hallmark here and that tradition continues.

This collection has always been beautiful and it continues to this very day to be a truly outstanding collection. The only thing that might have been holding it back from being the total package was that for a long time it only had masturbation and lesbian action. Nowadays, though, you will see many straight couples showing up in the newer shoots.
