The Life Erotic Review by Duke The Life Erotic

Review by Duke

Released Apr 5, '13 , Written Mar 28, '13
Intro

The Live Erotic describes itself as 'Explicit erotic art. Edgy. Intense. Exquisite'. The site is part of the Met Art Network however this site offers its own standalone membership. The full network access requires joining thru the Met Art Network site directly and it is a higher price. They do this because the individual sites like The Life Erotic do stand on their own just fine which is different than some other niche/reality networks. Here you'll find an exclusive collection of downloadable glamour erotic photography and videos in HD/high-res quality. Visitors can get a nice feel for the scope of the collection by browsing the guest tour as they update year/month archives and model index can be previewed.


The Pros

  Stylish Erotic Glamour Softcore Photography & Videos.

The Live Erotic delivers a quality entertaining collection of glamour content that is a mix of photography and video scenes. It is artistic, erotic, and stylish with indoor and outdoor settings, and some specialty items like B&W galleries, etc. The models are gorgeous and the action ranges from softcore solo to some masturbation and toy play.

  Ultra High-Res Photos, HD Videos, Nice Download Options.

Glamour sites like this should deliver on content quality and that's the case here. Photos come in around 5616x3744 or 5000x3321 except the very oldest sets. There are three image sizes for online viewing and zip downloads. Slideshow and individual picture saving are also available. Videos have HD quality 1920x1080 and 1280x720 full-scene downloads in MP4 and WMV respectively. There are also other format options and in-browser Flash streaming.

  Sharp Site, Year/Month Archive, Video Section, Model Index.

The design fits nicely with the glamour photography theme. They have the fundamental navigation tools in place with a year/month archive, dedicated videos section, and model index. IT's easy to get a handle on the scope of the collection and where things are at. Even the guest tour is straightforward and gives visitors a good overview of things.

  Daily Updates, Consistent Track Record for Several Years.

The Erotic Life has archives reaching back to May 2009. They update with one new content item per day. About two out of every three updates is a photoset with the other being a video scene.

Other Good Stuff:

  • There is a dedicated 'Photographers' section where you can browse the content by individual photographers. There are several dozen of them in all that produce content for The Life Erotic.
  • Members can rate the content items on a 10-star scale. There seems to be a nice amount of activity from users.

The Cons

  Medium Sized Site, Many Models with Photo Content Only.

Glamour photography softcore sites are quite numerous and there are a number of super-sized ones out there including TLE's sister network site Met Art. By comparison this site has a mid-sized archive that only goes back a handful of years. There are quite a number of models with only photo content and no videos at all. I ran into a lot of these when browsing around the model index.

  Search/Browse Tools Could Be Improved.

The navigation tools stay at basic levels here without going into dynamic advanced features. For instance the model index can be viewed by Top, All, or My Top Models. There aren't ways to filter down by age, country of origin, or other physical characteristics. The niche tag system is a user-driven one so there aren't many of those and they are hit-and-miss. Model info is also so-so with just basic info and they usually don't even have the country of origin field filled in.

Minor Negatives:

  • Most videos do have background music instead of scene audio which some users may not care for.
  • No file size information is posted for the downloadable video files or photo gallery zips.

The other
  • The Life Erotic can be joined as a standalone site or as part of the Met Art Network which offers a group of sites including The Life Erotic for a higher price.

Bottom Line

A solid erotic glamour photo/video site with stylish content that's been online & updating for a number of years now.

The Life Erotic delivers in the ways you'd expect from a glamour photo/video collection. They update steadily and have high-res/HD content with many download and viewing options. The site looks professional and sharp even though there is room for additional and more dynamic navigation tools. With content back to 2009 this is a medium-sized site compared to other sites of this genre.
