Velvet Mag Review by Vanessa Velvet Mag

Review by Vanessa

Released Jul 4, '13 , Written Jun 26, '13
Intro

Velvet Magazine is where you will find extremely beautiful girls in hardcore sex scenes. This site is a part of the Swank Pass Network of sites currently offering more than 420 videos and 1,200 image galleries here alone, with the Network offering a total of 13 sites including this one.


The Pros

  Pornstar Content/Lengthy Videos.

Velvet Mag offers a nice variety of both fresh-faced and well-known models/pornstars in extreme hardcore content including many niche themes. The videos run anywhere from 5 minutes and up in length. All content is true to theme. These are some very sexy pornstar/webmodel babes with hot bods. Many of the scenes were shot by professional photographers, offering up a unique collection content & scenes.

  Advanced Search Feature.

The advanced search tool lets you search by any combination of categories, keywords, and date. Photos and videos can be sorted by date, name, and popularity. If you prefer to browse just the content from this one site, that's an option, or you can search through all Network sites using this feature.

  Many Viewing & Download Options.

Videos have some good viewing options. Each scene is offered as both clips and full-length scenes. The clips play as wmvs in 2 quality settings. The full-length scenes have those same wmv options along with a Flash stream in 2 quality settings.

  Network Access.

Members of Velvet Mag also gain access to the Swank Pass Network, which currently houses about 13 sites total, all under one main Network homepage for easy browsing between and within sites.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Between the articles, interviews, bonus material, news, and magazine issues they have, there are really quite a few extras to check out. They should keep you busy for a while, as long as you're not here just for the photo and video content.

The Cons

  Older Quality May Be Lacking & Could Be Better Overall.

Recent videos have consistent bitrate speeds of 1500k to 3000k, however, don't take that to mean they all look as you would expect. Sizing can range from 720x480 down to 480x360. At times the photos don't look as sharp and in general video quality could stand to be improved to meet todays' standards of HD quality or something close to it. The oldest content doesn't look so hot either but with content dated back to 2005, that's not so surprising.

  May Be Some Non-Exclusive Content.

I'll be honest by saying I really don't know for sure whether anything here is or isn't exclusive. But I can tell you my impression is that it isn't. Content overall seems pretty generic for the niche and considering no model index or bio information is offered for the girls, it only strengthens this impression.

Minor Negatives:

  • Plain design. This is some kind of site script that I've seen many times before so the actual layout of the pages is a bit repetitive. The actual look of the site is pretty plain. It's more function over form.
  • There are some member's area ads. They really clutter up the site and detract from the network's own content.
  • WMV is your only option for download. A age user agreement must be clicked on before downloading each film. Older videos don't offer full-length downloads.

Bottom Line

Dirty models in hardcore scenes but quality could stand a boost.

Velvet Mag isn't quite the fresh and exciting site I was expecting to see, but it is rather large and offers some great scenes from your favorite & "dirtiest" webmodels & pornstars. The lack of content and model information doesn't help add to the atmosphere, however. The 3 things you can expect from this site are: weekly updates, nice-sized collection of content, and multi-site access. Other than that the whole of it just fell a little flat for me. Quality has gotten better over the years but could still stand to be boosted up a notch, and the content as whole just needs to be showcased better. Overall this was just a very so-so site for me, but multi-site access does sweeten the deal.
