Intro

Viv Thomas is the website for famous photographer and content provider, Viv Thomas. Here you will find over 138,000 images and 1,250 videos of some of the hottest, most familiar girls on the Internet. And nowadays, you can also find some fresh faces too! From good ol' old school classics to busty blondes, European babes, lesbians, rookies, hardcore, leg lovers and more, it's all here. The site is new and improved and is actually a pleasure to browse. It offers quite a bit of handy browsing features to help navigate through the massive archives. New full scenes are added daily and new photosets are added every other day. A membership to this quality site will set you back about $25 bucks per month.


The Pros

  Large Archive & Variety of Entertaining Viv Thomas Content.

The content here is very consistent and extremely high quality offering some amazingly hot chicks in both hardcore and softcore settings including full spreads (extreme close-ups), toy play, boy-girl, girl-girl, role playing, 3somes, 4somes, hot legs and feet, busty babes, old school 80's porn, and much, much more. There's a great variety of content to be found here, all of which is very high quality and enough to keep even the pickiest of porn connoisseurs happy for quite some time.

  High Quality Content.

Quality has always been key here and it's nice to see they continue to improve. Even though only a very small portion of the videos (seemingly at this point) appear to be offered in HD quality (118 scenes and counting), when they are, boy do they look great! Newer, non-HD videos look good still at over 3300k (720x576).

The photos feature some of the most beautiful women online, some you may recognize while others will be fresh faces. The sets are professional shoots offering great lighting, camera angles and of course, super high res specs. Newest images come in over 2400 pixels.

  Professional Site Design.

Member's area pages are clean and well-built. They load fast and there are just enough options to keep getting around a piece of cake without getting overwhelmed or lost. You will find content categories, a model index, sorting tools, a keyword search feature and cross-linking to make jumping around easy. All scenes offer preview thumbs, Flash streams, box covers, descriptions, user ratings & comments, etc.

  Daily Updates.

A new video scene is added daily! That's no easy feat and definitely a big bonus to member's who like their daily dose of material. New image sets are added every other day, which is also respectable.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Images are offered in at least 2 size formats, and for the older sets, up to 4. There are ZIP file downloads available as well. Full length video scenes come in multiple download formats WMV, DivX, MOV) along with a nice-looking Flash stream.
  • A large member community with a ton of extras. There are user forums, blogs, and plenty of bonus areas to keep users interacting and busy. Members also get access to Viv Thomas Live Cams, although there is an extra cost for the private shows.
  • Behind the scenes, on location, interviews and even a section of "banned" videos add a little something extra to check out.

The Cons

  Most, But Not All Video Updates Are HD Quality.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like they've integrated the HD specs into all of the newest videos being added. Currently there are about 118 scenes that offer it, with the rest of the content falling somewhere just a tick above average in quality. The good news is that even the clips from 1999 barely show their age at 1500k, and I was also pleased to find consistent download options, even for these clips.

  No Advanced Search.

While the categories, tags and keyword search feature are all helpful tools, a super, duper advances search would be great! Something where you can filter through the content by multiple specifics such as hair color, location, sex act, breast size, HD, photo/video, any or all of these all at once.

Minor Negatives:

  • Some models offer quick bio stats, but many do not. Some additional & more consistent model information would be preferred.
  • Older image sets come in around 1280x960 in size.

Bottom Line

Quality site, quality porn; a big hit all around.

Looking over some of my past reviews of Viv Thomas I am more than pleased with the amount of advancements they've made to the site in recent years. The addition of HD videos is probably the most exciting - and these are true HD beauties - followed by the clean & professional design. Updates are added constantly, the models are fresh and gorgeous, all of which is reflected in the site experience as a whole. The $24.95 monthly charge is more than fair for all that you get with your membership here, including the community extras that provide a decent amount of bonus fun.
