Nominated for an Xbiz award for Photography site of the year, Watch 4 Beauty (W4B) is a rare gem indeed. It is all about high class photography and sensuous videos with genuine girls giving subtle performances. It is based around a magazine style of presentation and takes an e-zine format. This makes it look completely original and very different from most other adult sites. The style and design of the tour, plus the things that you find on it, are the same as you find when you sign up, and the signup prices are set at very reasonable levels.
We are looking at glamour girls and glamour photography here, as the main thrust of the site, with backstage photos and videos of the models, casting sessions, stories from behind the scenes, as well as all the high class art photography content as promised. These are professional shoots with varied locations and varied, though always top, models. These girls are mainly Eastern European, though others do come from other parts of the world, hence the nice variety, and the site has been running a long time so it is well established and built on a solid foundation.
What you see on the tour is what you find in the members’ area, with this unique design and no standard layout as such. The principal content is shown down the centre of the page between two columns. In the left column you find the blocks of colour and words that take you to the Updates, Models, Magazines and Cams. As far as I could make out the cams area gives you some free time to a cam site but after that you might have to pay. The Updates area is where you find the standard approach to content with photos sets and videos, and the Magazine area gives you the images, texts and details as any magazine would.
The main central column is where things happen, with other links built into those side columns, things such as the forum access and newsletter details. I did find his central column a bit on the thin side at times, and this made the magazine content feel more like a blog than a magazine. But everything worked and loaded fast and this original design works really well in all other ways. When you find a photo set you simply click a thumbnail for the larger image and from there you navigate through sets. There are slideshows available.
Videos were also embedded into the central column in some posts, where they streamed. But look to the left and you find links to Films and then, reading down the pages, you click into all the varied scenes on offer. Here you can stream or download, there are WMV, MP4 and mobile versions to take and a goodly amount of download options for you. This is by no means your standard members’ area, the design is smart and unique though may take you a few moments to get used to. Once you do though it’s smooth and plain sailing all the way.
As I was getting to grips with the design and layout I counted the content. Heading to the Updates area I found 24 pages of galleries with 60 sets per page, giving me a total of 1,420 galleries, with various numbers of shots each, dating back to 2005. Here images clicked up to smaller online-suitable sizes which had been scaled down from the original. This is to make viewing online easier. The full sized images were up to 800 x 1,200 in size where they remained clear and fine to see. You have a choice of how large you view the images and there are several choices for zip file downloading as well. Some of these galleries come with videos to stream.
In the Films area I found 190 films dating back to 2005. Runtimes are stated here and tend to be short, around the three minute mark, though some were up to 14 or 15 minutes, not many though. Older movies may not have the same high quality options as more recent ones, but I found the same amount of download choices, with various file types and resolutions. The more recent films were at 1,920 x 1,080 in resolution. They are solo, sensual, strip and pose films that give you plenty of time to examine each girl in the full and totally naked.
Looking at the Magazine area there were 436 editions dating from 2010. Each one is shown in the main column with an image and title, plus a little intro and a Read More link. Click that and you open the full magazine with photos, articles, well written texts and some embedded videos. Oh yes, and plenty of sexy girls in the images as well. Subjects range from travel to sex, so there is plenty to read and see.
There are no bonuses as such, but you can access the extensive model index where there are stats, links and some very glamorous, desirable and hot girls from all over Europe to check out.
- Exclusive content;
- Excellent quality photography;
- A great line up of very glamorous and sexy models;
- Well written articles in the magazine area;
- Original design and layout.
- Older content is not the same quality as more recent content, with lower specifications;
- A little more information about the girls in the model index would be good;
- The central column can make the content look a bit squashed up.
It is only occasionally that something completely different and original comes along and Watch 4 Beauty is it. A mix of glamour magazine, top-shelf publication, video and gallery site, what you have here is not just unique. It is also awesome quality and the girls are top models for sure. You get good download options for both videos and galleries, lots of exclusive content and some very interesting magazines to read as well. The signup price is good, the site is outstanding and original, and if you are looking for quality time with quality girls in a quality site, then this is it.
“Good to see a magazine site that’s not at all sleazy. This one gives us some very nice content and it is all the kind of thing you would expect to pay a lot for if you bought it in a shop. Hot Euro babes for sure, but it is so much more than just a porn site.”
“Great pace to view for classier porn, good old fashioned pin up girls and leggy blondes, good quality photos from professional artists, brilliantly laid out in a unique design. The kind of thing the adult industry need to do more of. I was really blown away by W4B and I think I shall be staying for a very long time.”
“It only takes you a while to get used to it if you are so used to standard, template design, porn sites. It’s a nice setup with a good design, and yes it is unusual but it works. But talk about sexy women, I mean these must be top models form fashion shots and stuff sure? Great line up of girls in a great site.”
