Summary
Erotic4u is a site that I’m surprised we haven’t reviewed earlier as it has been going since ‘98. Erotic4u is dedicated to female celebrities and porn stars. So if there are any famous ladies that you know got their baps out on camera, it’s likely that you’ll be able to find that clip here. The price is pretty reasonable considering the amount of content that you get access to. The tour is fairly representative of the member’s area and does in fact list the content that you will get access to. So if there is a particular celebrity or porn star that you are after, you can check to see if they’re in the site before you sign up.

General
After logging in I was greeted by a rather intimidating looking security alert concerning IP addresses. It merely warns that if your account is accessed by more than one IP address in a short amount of time then your account will automatically be de-activated. This may seem a bit extreme but it is quite common place in paysites as a method to prevent hacking and password sharing. At least, on this site, they warn you of the fact that this will happen; how many of you have tried to login to a paysite only to find your password blocked without being given a good reason?

From this "Security" page you get to choose one of two styles for the member’s area (one is the new blue design and the other is the old black design). It was nice to have the choice of appearance but I’m not certain that this will be a permanent feature as it doesn’t seem to have any real benefit. The appearance can be changed later on by clicking on a link at the bottom of the main page. I went for the blue option as it is the newer of the two and is what the site looks like on the tour (the blue design actually seems to have more sections as well). I actually quite liked the appearance and navigation of the site. The design is clean, simple, easy on the eye and doesn’t distract from the content itself (plus I like blue). A big plus is that there are little to no ads.

The site is divided into seven sections, which are: main, hardcore, bonus, what’s new, board, help and video store. The first four of these sections are content related so I will discuss these later on. The Video Store is the now compulsory link to buy DVDs and the like. The help section is a quite comprehensive FAQ list which is backed up by a help forum in the "board" section. The "board" section is a community/forum for discussing erotic4u, porn in general, random things and to get any help you may need with the member’s area.

I need to now talk about the board in a bit more detail as it is a huge part of the site. It can be considered an online community for people with a common interest. Okay in this case the common interest is celeb porn, but a lot more goes on here than just porn talk. The board has become an integral part of the site. Members can get technical assistance, discuss non-porn related topics and, of course, discuss porn to their hearts content with other members. However, the real asset of the board is the “upload forum” where you can “share your clips & pictures with the community”. I have it on good authority that this provides more than 200 GB of extra stuff and that more than 100 gigs are uploaded every four weeks.

Content
I really like the fact that the main page of the member’s area gets straight to the point. Apart from the navigation bar, the only thing on the main page is the first page of a full list (all the way from A to Z) of all of the actresses on the site. Now with the amount of content on the site this means that the list goes on for around 66 pages, so I can’t imagine too many people browsing via this method. The content can be displayed by model name and by movie title (both have an A - Z navigation bar).

The celeb videos on this site are mostly taken from mainstream movies and videos. However, there are most of those infamous home videos mixed in there for good measure. It's amazing how many famous people are nude in here as you will be surprised at how many famous ladies get out their boobs for a film or television role.

The "what’s new" section is very impressive as it is an excellently maintained database of all of the additions over the past years. You can select any update day and see what clips were added on that day. They have also gone to the trouble of creating “Top 50 Downloads” and “Top 50 Votings” lists in this section to help you out if you don’t know what to look at.

Video Section
The videos are to be found in two different sections. The main page contains the softer side of things which is where you are more likely to find celebrities. The hardcore section is, obviously, where the hardcore stuff is and features porn stars more than anything.

As this is the type of site where the content comes from a variety of different sources, there is no consistency in terms format, size, length or quality. You have to be ready to accept grainy clips sometimes to catch that ever elusive nipple slip by your favourite star! I have been informed that the people that run the site are endeavouring to replace the lower quality clips with better quality ones. This will take some time though as they have a huge back catalogue.

Videos are searchable by actress and by movie title. Each individual clip is accompanied by a selection of technical information: duration, file size, codec, nudity (whether there is any), sound (whether there is any), screen resolution, number of hits and voting (out of 10). The last two of those stats offer a good indication of whether a clip is worth watching.

Picture Galleries
At first I wasn’t sure that there would be any photos on the site but then I clicked on the bonus page (this is one of the areas that has yet to be redesigned). There are a few sets of bought in content in here as well as a database of screencaps of celebrities and porn stars. This unfortunately means that none of the pictures are exclusive to the site. Yet again there is an inconsistency in terms of size. The quality of the pictures is good on the whole; there are screen caps of a lot of celebrities so these can be a little on the dodgy side.

I would like to see the photo section redesigned so that it looks more suited to the rest of the new design.
