XMuse has 15 videos that give you great-quality playback as well as files for your iPhone. There's a 5GB daily download limit though. Now, the vids aren't very long, so I mistakenly assumed that they would merely be recorded during the photo shoots. However, they are actually vignettes with a bit of a plot and a soundtrack.
The first one I watched has a model going up the stairs, taking her clothes off and then masturbating in a bathtub. She starts pleasuring herself while having a fantasy about another woman. The scene briefly turns black and white as she imagines herself wearing a bridesmaid's veil and nothing else while making out with a girl who is also nude except for a bridal veil. It's very romantic, even if there's certainly enough lesbian action to make it quite sexual.
You'll also find 131 photo galleries with crisp high-res images to download in Zip files. They make it clear that they care more about quality than they do about quantity, so they choose only some of the best pics to be featured in each spread. However, you can also find an archive with some of the photos that didn't quite make the grade. They are displayed in smaller frames, but are still quite good.
I like the creativity in the photography here. For example, I simply love the spread showing a girl dressed as a bride with her female lover with slicked back, side-parted hair, a dark suit and jaunty fedora. It turns out that the bride has lacey thigh-high stockings under her dress, but she isn't wearing any panties.
Updates are weekly and usually involve fresh photos rather than a new video. There are links to some blogs and postings advertising photography workshops and the like. You can also learn a lot about the ladies through the model index and there's always an amusing and illuminating little blurb about each one. Overall, I like the personality shining through X Muse and it doesn't hurt that a membership is inexpensive.
