Viv Thomas Review by Maggie Viv Thomas

Intro

VivThomas.com is the website of the UK's leading glamour photographer and videographer, Viv Thomas. Dubbed "the master of leg sex." Thomas' photos portray very glamourous models in hardcore and softcore high-quality content. He has been published in numerous men's magazines and his work can be found on many of the top erotic websites. He has been capturing beautiful pictures of beautiful women for over twenty years now and only on VivThomas.com can you view his large archive of erotica. The tour is quite professional and I know we're in for a high quality treat.


The Pros

  All original content.

This is an exclusive collection featuring the original photography of Viv Thomas. Much of it is exclusive, although I think some of the older scenes might have been leased out and the videos are available for purchase as DVDs. Anyhow, this is the spot to see Thomas' latest and greatest shoots, and enjoy his early galleries of today's most popular models, as well as his discovery of new beauties.

  Large collection!

There is so much to enjoy here. The site currently contains more than 128,000 pictures and 717 videos. The collection dates back to 2001, so it's no wonder the site is as large as it is. This is a really intriguing look at glamour porn through the last decade.

  High quality material.

You can expect gorgeous photos and videos featuring some of the most beautiful models in the world. He has shot some of the most beautiful adult models including the likes of Adele Stephens, Sandy, and Sophie Moon. All of his models are gorgeous, glamourous women. The photography is wonderfully professional and really captures the models at their best. The scenes are sharp and well-lit. Attention is paid to every detail in the scene for some all-around beautiful galleries and videos.

  Easy to navigate.

Thanks to a polished and professional design, along with lots of helpful user features, getting around the site is no problem. There are categories for the videos and photos, and both sections can also be viewed by popularity and date added. There's an alphabetical model index and a keyword search, as well. Everything is cross-linked so it's easy to jump from scene to scene. The site just underwent a redesign and it's really paid off.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Photos are offered in four image sizes, zip files, and slide shows.
  • There's an active community with a forum and live chat. Sometimes the models participate, too. Thomas' blog is a must-read.
  • Daily updates. In fact, the site is updated with multiple new scenes each day, keeping the site growing at a great pace.
  • Members get access to Viv Thomas Live Cams, although there is an extra cost for the private shows.

The Cons

  Videos in clips.

The videos are updated and displayed in clips. This means that it may take several days for a complete video to be added. Also, there's no option to view the entire scene in one file. They do make it easy to find all the clips in a scene, at least, but more could be done.

  Videos could be sharper.

I had no real issue with the video quality, only that I'd love to see some HD video by Viv. At 1500k and 640x480 in size, these scenes aren't really keeping up with the quality of the times. Granted, Thomas does have a separate video site but with so much video content here, it would be great if it lived up to the quality that is associated with his name.

Minor Negatives:

  • Photos could be larger. The largest you'll see is 1280x852. That's not bad, but from a photography site like this I expected much bigger.
  • Slow downloads. These speeds were much, much slower than what we see on other sites and the download manager didn't help at all.

Bottom Line

This large, high quality collection is a great join for glamour fans.

Nearly 10 years after its launch, VivThomas.com still impresses. The large collection of original content is one that all glamour fans will enjoy. They've done a good job at keeping up with the times with the recent site upgrades. A few technological upgrades (larger photos and HD videos) would put the site at the front of the pack. The cost is $25 a month, which is very fair for a collection like this. If you enjoy beautiful models in high quality scenes, definitely check out VivThomas.com.
