Viv Thomas review
Summary: Viv Thomas is a large, long running site with a library of hardcore, lesbian and solo masturbation movies and galleries. The girls are all beautiful European glamour models, and the content has a more sensual approach, though it is also very explicit. The 720p HD downloads looked good, though not as clear as HD should be. It is a good collection and the porn is a lot of fun, but in some ways the site is beginning to feel dated, and the navigation isn't as handy as it should be.

"Unbelievably hot girls having great sex!"
- Daily updates
- HD Video
- Over 161,128 images, 1,284 videos and 756 models
The tour makes quite an impression about what Viv Thomas has to offer, and I think one of their tag lines sums it up nicely: "Unbelievably hot girls having great sex." That's what you'll find here - mostly European babes in glamour videos and pictures, naked, masturbating, having sex with other models and having sex with men.
A glance through what is offered reveals content a bit more reserved and sensual than the hardcore you'll find on other sites, but decidedly more explicit and sexual than your typical erotica site. To learn more, I'll have to sign up.
The porn review that follows covers everything I found inside the members area, and supplies you with all the details you need to know to decide if Viv Thomas is the right site for you.
Viv Thomas has been online for a long time and finally we are paying it a visit. We may be a little bit late - there was a certain feeling of having seen this material before and some of the media options looked dated. A few years ago, the site would have been at the top of the niche, but in 2012 the overall quality available here just isn't at the top of the game any longer. In any case, there are hundreds of beautiful girls, and a lot of fun erotic and hardcore content that is very much worth exploring.
Large Library of Glamour Girls in Action
One of the best things this site has going for it is its size - the library here is pretty massive. There are over 1,200+ videos, 2,800+ galleries, and 750+ models.
That size includes variety, too. All of the content has a certain glamour look to it, but you'll find everything from pretty girls stripping and masturbating to hardcore, baby oil-slicked anal sex and multiple partners. Even the anal sex scenes are slower and more sensual than your average porn site, which is a certain plus in Viv's column.
The models are very beautiful European girls, and you'll find a lot of popular models here: Eve Angel, Angelika Black, Aletta Ocean, Sophie Moon, Zafira, Silvia Saint, Cindy Hope... some of the girls were on the site many years ago and their content is a bit dated now.
720p HD Video Looks Good
Most of the new updates are offered with a 720p HD download options available. It is an MP4 download with a 1280x720 screen (4 mbits). It looks great, but to be honest most of the videos lacked that extreme clarity that high definition should have. So the movies are HD in resolution and size, but the playback quality is a little shy of what it ought to be.
Professional Picture Galleries
The galleries are professionally composed and look like they've had a little airbrushing and touch up done to make the pics perfect - a standard glamour gloss effect on most. I found images of two sizes 1280x960 and some newer galleries that were 2400x1600 at the largest. The photographs are high resolution, but I was a little disappointed that they didn't use the larger resolutions more frequently and consistently.
Streaming Video, Download Alternatives
You can stream the movies at Viv Thomas online instantly in their Flash video player. It is pretty fast and responsive, and the picture quality is good, too. You can also opt to download in a good quality MP4 (720x400 screen; 2.2mbits) or a good quality WMV (640x360 screen; 1.5mbits).
There are updates every single day. Usually either a video or a photo, but some days will see two galleries, or a video and a gallery, added. The constant, everyday updates have been a big part of why this site has grown so large.
Navigation Is Lacking
The site doesn't look bad, but it seems that they put too much effort into the appearance and not into thinking out the functionality and building tools that work well. To be fair there are a good number of ways to look for content - you can browse videos, pictures, models, films, do advanced searches and sort results by category/niche. But the site feels clunky, and making use of those features isn't always obvious or intuitive. I also experienced very sluggish page and content load times on every visit.
Material Feels A Little Ordinary at Times
The porn here is great, but there was something dated about it - like I had seen it before a few years ago. The whole glamour look and style was very popular a few years back but not so much anymore, and I think that's what makes the content feel old, even though it is a lot of fun, varied, and stars beautiful girls. I also felt that they could have taken things a little bit more explicit without giving up the sensual aspect the content radiates, as the current trend in this niche tends to be running towards getting more intense, rather than the other way around.
A lot of content here, both videos and galleries, starring beautiful European girls, but some of the material lacked that special spark that great sites have.
Viv Thomas feels just a little shy of greatness. The site isn't put together that well, so browsing is a little bit of a hassle. The 720p HD downloads look great, but are also less than HD in terms of clarity. The pictures weren't available in that large of a resolution. But the girls are beautiful, and the sex and interaction is sensual and hot. Even so, there was something a little bit familiar about this glamour site's porn. To make it work as well as it should, they'll need to improve their website and their content quality. Surfers into this niche will expect it from them.
I thought that 21 Sextury would be a site that fans of Viv Thomas would be interested in. The porn there is decidedly more intense and hardcore, but features gorgeous European babes (many of the same girls in fact) and has amazing content quality - 1080p HD video and super high res galleries.
Joymii is another great pick, and has a more erotic/sensual approach that is even more alike to Viv Thomas. They offer great content quality, lots of updates, and gorgeous European models.
