Russia doesn't just intoxicate us with its world-famous vodka. It also brings us MPL Studios with erotic photography of gorgeous, mostly European, women that leaves you feeling more than a bit tipsy from drinking in the images of youth and beauty. Much of this art is captured on film in and around beautiful Saint Petersburg by world-class photographers.
MPLStudios has a collection that stretches back to September 2003 and it includes women from Armenia, Australia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Russia, the U.K. and the Ukraine. You'll see softcore posing, some gentle self-pleasuring and a lesbian encounter here and there that can vary from simple kissing to some fingering or even a bit of licking.
There is a separate video section and all the updates, including pics and vids, are split up and listed first by year and then by individual month. You can also browse by model using a name or selecting attributes from a dropdown menu, like eye and hair color or breast size.
You'll find 312 videos and they've evolved over the years from coming only in DivX-encoded AVIs to also offering Windows Media, QuickTime, MP4 and 3GP options. You can expect from mediocre to high-def playback. Earlier vids are split into clips that are downloadable in Zip files, but many of the newer movies offer several choices of full-length versions.
Now it's safe to say that by the time you read this review, you'll find over 2,723 photo sets, because updates are daily. As you might expect from a photography-focused site, the pics are always large and crisp with many offering a high-res viewing option alongside some smaller pics. You also have Zip files to download and sometimes you can choose what size of photos you want.
Also the design and navigation is a bit awkward, despite being revamped. After signing in and clicking on some links, it may look like you need to sign in again when you really don't. It's not a huge deal, but the current scores for those two criteria need to come down a smidge. Still, overall, MPL Studios seems worth joining, but you'll need to be careful not to have multiple downloads going at once to avoid being blocked.
