We're adding a new website today: Erotica X. There are ten reviews so far.
Erotica X seems to have started operation around Fall 2013. It is very much in the spirit of XArt and its other imitators. The videos, which are all available in Full HD (1920×1080), as well as lower resolutions, feature beautiful people and beautiful scenery, and they are extremely well shot. The focus is almost exclusively on heterosexual scenes. There is only one masturbation scene so far, and there are no homosexual scenes.
Erotica X is clearly striving for quality over quantity. They post a new video only about once a week, but the performers are mostly well-known, and well-established: Allie Haze, Presley Hart, Dani Daniels, Seth Gamble, Johnny Castle, James Deen, and the like.
The videos are a bit longer than XArt's, mostly because there is usually a fair bit of setup, as much as five minutes. It can be as simple as a couple walking along the beach, holding hands and kissing, as in "Message in a Bottle", or as developed as a guy asking his girlfriend to move in with him, as in "The Moment I Knew". But the story is not the focus. It is there to provide some context for the sex, and we have found that, in most cases, it does so successfully.
As for quality, we are extremely impressed so far. The overall feeling tends to be fairly romantic, but the sex is not overly soft, as "romantic" can sometimes imply. More importantly, there is almost always genuine attraction between the performers, and one has the sense that they are really into having sex together.
The camera work tends to be somewhat better than with XArt, Dane Jones, SexArt, or JoyMii. The focus is still a bit too much on the female performer, and the male performer can be cut out of the frame in the usual sorts of places. But this happens less often than with with the sites mentioned, and more effort seems to be made to shoot the male performer's face when, say, his partner is blowing him. There are also fewer genital close-ups than on those other sites. There are some, but they have a more natural feel.
We thus feel very comfortable recommending Erotica X to people interested in feminist porn. It's the best site we have seen of this kind.
Bunch of new XArt reviews today. There are two great ones here, but a lot of the rest are really mediocre and, in one case, quite bad. We suppose the only thing to say is that XArt has become extremely inconsistent. There's great stuff at times, and then incredibly crappy stuff.
We suppose it's a good thing that we're now getting a lot of spam comments. At least it proves we're visible.

We continue to try to catch up with the recent videos from XArt, which seem to get better all the time. Most of these are from September and October, and there are several here that are just excellent. The various videos with Jessica and her boyfriend Calvin are almost always worth watching, though we do sometimes find the dance-like positions a bit unrealistic and distracting. Still, there is genuine passion between them, and the sex is otherwise very authentic.
As you'll see, there were also a few that were disappointing. Victoria Lynn and Jason were apparently an amateur couple, and they seem very nervous.

Ms Naughty has done a nice retrospective on what happened in 2013 with "porn for women". Her main point, which continues to seem absolutely right to me, is that most porn is porn for men. It is, overwhelmingly, conceived, shot, and edited by men, for men, and it embodies a very male perspective on sex. It is, to borrow a term from her, made for the cock, not the clit.
