I don’t normally start off a review with a sales pitch, but that old adage “you get
what you pay for” really does apply at this epic softcore site. To be honest, it
should come as no surprise as The Life Erotic is from the same team that brought
you Met-Art.com, MetModels.com and the spin-off title ErroticaArchives.com - all
stunning sites in their own right. Erotica is their business and there is no finer
purveyors of beautifully composed artistic impression in the adult world. To call
this PORN is a great injustice - it is ART in its truest form.
TheLifeErotic.com was launched back in May 2009 and over the past couple of years
has steadily grown into a moderately sized collection of ultra high resolution imagery
and High Definition video. Its been way too long since I visited a Met Art site and
the first thing that struck me was the content at this site is much more explicit.
The site blurb expands upon this with catchy phrases such as “edgy erotica”, “masturbation
art”, “creamy orgasms” and “beyond beauty”, and I have to agree - for a nude art
site this is pushing the boundaries - it only works on this level because the graphic
imagery is diluted by photographic expertise. See, call it art and you can get away
If I was to be critical about anything at The Life Erotic, it has to be the uninspiring
scheme - I can appreciate that the content should always shine through but the depressing
dark grey backdrop turned me off. Likewise, navigation and layout could be improved
or at least more slick and in depth (there are no model bios or search tools for
example), but on a positive note everything worked as promised with no dead links.
Perusing the model database (split alphabetically A-C, D-J, K-M and N-Z) I saw a
handful of well known Euro adult stars such as Ariel, Carmen, Chikita, Eve, Lucky
and Teresa aka Jana B (my personal favourite from OnlyTease.com fame), but the majority
were delectable fresh faces which is always a delight. Right now there are 236+ models
spread over 325+ photo sets and 89+ HD movies.
Videos are available to download in three resolutions, 1080p HD, 720p HD, 432 (WMV
and MOV), plus a useful 30 second low resolution streaming preview (Flash media).
Average running time is 10 minutes and the 1080p productions are visually outstanding
as to be expected.
Photo galleries are displayed perfectly and available in three sizes (Life Size 4288
pixel, Over Size 200 pixel, and Screen Size 100 pixel), plus a life size zip file
for downloading. Awesome quality throughout. Expect 60+ arousing images per set.
Action, if you can call this sort of thing “action“, focuses on solo girl masturbation
(with fingers and toys) set in imaginative locations and exploiting dynamic mood
lighting to the max. There are 29+ two girl lesbian scenes which get very steamy
with lots of pussy eating and nipple nibbling to be relished. Again the emphasis
is on the erotic, albeit edgy, artsy side so you can expect some monochrome/sepia
sets to keep that element real.
For a site with a distinguished lineage The Life Erotica definitely lives up to all
expectations and while it is heavily influenced by its predecessors its not a clone.
If you take pleasure from carefully thought out creative work and photographic skill
then this is most definitely for you. Hardcore fans? Well this probably isn’t for
you unless you want a break from the monotonous pounding that every day porn provides.
Membership costs from $29.99 for 30 days right through to $99.99 for 365 days unrestricted
access. There aren’t any bonus sites included, but you can expect 2-3 updates per
An uncompromising sensual and visually stimulating experience - highly recommended.
