PaulRaymond.com is up for review today, and this is the exclusive website of the publication company behind such magazines as Mayfair, Escort, Club, Men's World, and more. The content definitely has a magazine feel to it with beautiful models and high quality, though I don't know if the translation to the internet world has gone well for them honestly. Read on to find out more, but you can join this site for £15 per month, which works out to around $23 currently.
Lots to see overall.
There's definitely a decent amount of content up here. I don't know if this is everything he's ever shot, or what, but it's all good. Over 600 photo galleries, and over 1,700 videos up. I'm really surprised there are more videos than photos on a site like this, but I'm not complaining.
Other Good Stuff:
Of course, all of the content here is all exclusive. It's expected these days, but worthy of a note here.
Downloads aren't easy to come by here.
Damn, this site sucks in terms of download options. The photos can be downloaded one at a time, but that's about it. There are no zip files, which sucks. Even worse, the videos are all in-browser only, so nothing is downloadable there, either. The final straw is that the in-browser videos aren't even truly streaming as you can only jump as far ahead as you've actually downloaded, and the video buffered a lot for me, which I haven't seen in years.
Navigation could be better.
There's a photo and video section, which is great, plus a models index. Nice. There are the basics. But where are the features here? The site is pretty large, so I was hoping to see some categories at minimum, if not a full-blown advanced search setup to help you find specific types of content here.
Quality needs work.
Let me clarify here. They shoot great material with professional lighting and camera setups. However, the translation to the internet world has not been kind to this material. The pictures are tiny. The videos are grainy. Nothing is shown off here in terms of how good they probably look before they're compressed and put online.
No scene info.
The site feels like it lacks personality because there's no information on the scenes or models here unfortunately. You can check everything out, but don't expect to get any background material or bios on these girls, or the content.
Their default view for photo galleries is a slideshow. Each picture is up for about 1.5 seconds it feels like, which is very fast for a slideshow. You can turn it off, but it takes that extra click.
There's a decent amount to see, and good quality, but a lot of changes are needed here.
PaulRaymond.com offers up a nice base of content, but falls pretty far short in terms of a paysite these days. He knows his way around a camera with great sets and videos, beautiful girls, and some good quality. However, things like good quality don't fare well when the pictures are smaller than the ones we used to see years ago on amateur sites, and the videos aren't even downloadable. Until these issues are brought up to date, I just can't imagine people getting too excited about this one right now.

Original magazine-style content featuring lots of solo sets, plus some girl/girl action as well.
Only single images are downloadable, can't get speed info.

My Opinion: Yes, it looks like they shoot all their own content here. I'm not sure if it's available elsewhere, though, since they do magazines and DVDs it seems.
