I've been a faithful follower of both VivThomas and SexArt for over two years now, and I've experienced an abundance of ups and downs. SexArt, in bold counteraction to VivThomas, has had a distinct philosophy since its early stages, constituting an unwavering foundation, on which the site managed to grow and prosper steadily. I consider myself utterly picky when it comes to adult entertainment, which's exactly why I'm aware of a very limited number of sites, alongside the above-mentioned, that accomplish to come up to my "standards". Oh, apropos ... this ought to be interpreted as a compliment. ;-)
SexArt has developed marvelously over time IMHO, while VivThomas continues to be a bit of a "difficult child", not having a conclusive cognizance on where it stands now, and in which direction it wants to step next.
So, yeah, you may be fed up to the back teeth to hear it yet again, even so, yes ... VivThomas has deteriorated greatly. The filming is technically mediocre, artistically - kind of - stony; true storytelling is done very sporadically, say, at one point we get the full package comprising a proper prelude along with dialog, then we are obliged to get along with a straightforward entry into the action. It is appropriate at times, I'll not argue that ... Furthermore, I fail at persuading myself into really have veneration for the models Guy choose, but ... I already went into it, so that's that.
All in all, I'd prefer to walk away right now, as I'm seriously frustrated and mighty disappointed. However, I still have the vehement wish to experience a 'bigger and better' VivThomas. And I assuredly don't want to miss out on the Next Big Thing, right?
I really do hope you stick with it, GoldenEagle. I think you have some very fair criticisms, some of which I've already responded to elsewhere, so I won't keep repeating myself. I just want you to know that we do take members' critique very seriously... I hope the many interesting moments, story ideas, strong signs of improvement, cute girls and assurance that we really are working hard will keep you here for long enough to prove it to you! :-)
If not repeat yourself, can you link to your previous responses. I feel the same way kind of. If I want shitty lesbian porn, I'd go to porntube any number of porntube clones. I still believe that VT can be what it claims (a cut above the rest), but lately it's been lacking imagination and substance.
Hi Nick, if you look at any of the recent movies and photosets you will see all the comments from other members (which you may find interesting to read) along with my responses, and those of our director, Guy. What it boils down to is that we welcome constructive critique from members, discuss it in depth and then put it into practice. You can see VT evolving from when Guy first took the helm until now, and this evolution will continue. Basically, we won't rest until everyone is happy! A lot of changes have already happened, based on feedback from members, particularly with regard to developing the storylines, and there are many new developments in the pipeline – they just take a while to go through the production process. Guy has just shot some movies in Budapest with a lot of gorgeous new girls (and a few older favourites) so I hope you will find plenty there to enjoy!
Interesting to compare the approach of Pierre Collant with that of Don Caravaggio. With the former, it's straight in to the action; no messing around. With the latter, we have a little build-up, a bit of scene setting. I think I know which I prefer.
It's top of the agenda to bring more of the 'flavour' of the scene into the photographs, ShereKhan. I know you're probably tired of me saying it lately, but it really is being worked on :-)
Don is an amazing photographer of course, I'm really excited to see his work here at VT.
Talia and Leila look so adorable together.
This is from scene three of 'Truth or Dare' – naughty Leila finally gets her hands on Talia :-)
Same old,same old.I have been looking at these sub- standard photoshoots for Three Months.Would the last person who leaves the New Viv site please turn out the lights.Finally I cannot believe I am paying for this absolute S. .
Gladian, as I've already mentioned a few times, the photographs are the next thing under scrutiny and being worked upon very hard right now. I totally understand your frustration, but please recognise that improvements can't be implemented instantly, it takes a while to see the results filter through. I hope the major improvements in recent movies (which have met with vary favourable comments from most members) will reassure you that we do take it really seriously and listen to what members say. You know I won't rest until everyone is happy...!
Good luck with that, Rose! Are you sure you've not made a rod for your own back there?
I have, of course, ShereKhan! But I'm okay with that :-) VT is very dear to my heart, and I want everyone to feel the love :-)
