Summary:

This site did disappoint me a little but maybe I set them up for a fall by trying to compare them to one of my favourite sites. Being honest, in its own right this isnít a bad site. The site design is superb and there is some good quality content on offer it is just a shame that the hardcore and lesbian content couldnít be up to the same standards as the solo stuff. The site is also let down by not offering some of the super high quality images and videos that I was hoping for. So all in all, not an outstanding site but then on the other hand itís not a terrible one either. Therefore itís probably worth a look if you want a mix of hardcore and solo content, but that fact that the support is rather lacking really does need sorting out before I will properly recommend the site.

General:

One of the first reviews I did was for InFocusGirls.com and that site simply blew me away. The trouble is I have never found a site that quite matches up to it, but as I looked through the tour for SecretVirgin.com I was very reminiscent of that momentous day and I got even more excited when I realised that this site doesnít just offer solo girl, they have got lesbian and hardcore action to boot. But can they match the amazing quality of the models and content because if they can then I could have a new favourite site on my hands.

One of the first things that made me draw comparisons to inFocusGirls.com was the bright green colour scheme that, ok, isnít going to be to everyoneís taste but no one could argue that it isnít well put together and looks professional down to the last detail. The navigation works by giving you the regular options: updates, photos, videos, favourites etcÖ but if you hover over each of these options you are able to drill down in much more detail. So for example if you hover over the models tab you can then select models with photo, models with video or models with photo and video. This is brilliant and allowed me to jump straight to the content that I was after.

The support on offer disappointed me no end, as up to this point it was all looking very rosy for SecretVirgin.com. There was a small number of links to download some movie players and plug-ins but that was about it. As I always say, the least I expect from a support section is an FAQ and ticketing system. For some reason for most sites the support section seems to be more of an afterthought and something to be rushed at the end of the design. This really shouldnít be the case and unfortunately seems to be the way things went with this site.


Content

I can neither dispute nor confirm the virginal status of any of these girls. Why? You want the truth? You canít handle the truth! No but seriously, what I can confirm is that a fair few of these girls are stunning and, in fact, as I flicked through the pages of different girls I spotted several that caused my jaw to drop.

Content is, as I have already mentioned not just solo girl. That was a big surprise as from a site of this sort that is all I would usually expect. But luckily on top of the solo stuff there are also lesbian and hardcore shenanigans to keep you interested.

There is no search tool available apart from a simple text string search bar. This was another little disappointment and something that would be superb to add to this site. Ok so the drop downs help you to choose between different types of content but there really is no substitute for being able to find exactly what you want with a few clicks of the mouse.

There is a favourites system in place which allows you to add any models, photo sets or videos that you think look interesting. But apart from this there really arenít many other extras to speak of. Saying this though, as you go through the site looking at the videos and especially the photos there are little touches that I will go into in the relevant sections that make browsing the content a real joy!


Video Section:

The videos are advertised as HDV but in fact it is only the solo girl videos that have this option available. The lesbian and hardcore videos are DVD rips rather than, what Iím assuming is the case, filming them themselves like the solo girl videos.

When choosing which movie scene to watch there are some great little touches; such as the screenshot slideshow that automatically plays. This means you can really get a feel for the video before you download it and decide whether or not it is going to be your sort of thing or not, plus it just looks pretty cool!

Most of the videos, not all, give you the option for downloading the entire movie in .Wmv (hardcore and lesbian - 720 x 576 with a bit rate of 2.11 Mbps or solo - 1280 x 720 with a bit rate of 2.86 Mbps) or if you donít want to wait for the massive download you are able to get it in several parts in .Wmv (hardcore and lesbian - 512 x 412 with a bit rate of 799 Kbps or solo - 1280 x 720 with a bit rate of 2.86). The solo girl videos that where advertised as HDV did disappoint me a little as they are not all that different from the DVD rips with regards to the bit rate and all that they had done is up the resolution of the videos. HDV is difficult to define but I would say that nothing below 3.5 Mbps warrants being called HDV.

Updates come to the video section every other day, which is great but I would have liked to have seen a few more solo girl updates as the majority of them did seem to be the hardcore DVD rips.


Photo Section:

Much the same as the videos, the solo girls stuff was of a much higher quality than the lesbian and hardcore stuff. The solo girlsí photos come in at 1600 x 1067 whereas the lesbian and hardcore only come in at around 1024 x 768. Neither of these resolutions is awful but a little bit of symmetry between the two would be good.

There are a few options that, when viewing the full size photos, will come in really handy. The best of these has to be the little drop down in the top right of the window that allows you to jump straight to other sets from the girl and even change the girl that you are currently viewing. One other little option that I am sure you will find handy is the ability to vary the amount of thumbnails per page. You also get all of your regular back, next and slideshow options.

Updates come every other day on the opposite schedule to the videos; this means that you will always have something new to look at.
