21 Naturals review67%
I’ve looked at a lot of hardcore sites on this site, especially reality hardcore hardcore offerings. These run the gamut, of course, being anything from some of the best to some of the worst paysites around – and it can seem, sometimes, like they are everything that’s around in terms of premium porn sites. That’s absolutely not the case, however, and as a result I do relish the opportunity to show you something different every once in a while. Today’s review is one of those different offerings, since 21 Naturals isn’t reality or even hardcore – this network’s genre is glamcore, and not only does the team behind it know that very well, they know precisely what they’re doing with it too. I adore the really erotic, couple’s feeling of all the content here: it’s not trashy or raunchy at all, even though it’s definitely full of great sex. To be clear, of course silly raunchy hardcore is fine, but sometimes you just want something different, so let’s get into the details.
Decently Sized Network with Several Niches, Bonus Access, Good Design & User Features, Frequent Updates, Downloads
The network is pretty well sized, with at the time of writing a collection of nearly a thousand videos and galleries. The content is spread across three sites, one of which is the network itself. The other two are 21 Foot Art and 21 Erotic Anal – perhaps not all for everyone, but most folks will enjoy at least two of three, which two depending on particular tastes, I think. You also get bonus access to a good variety of bonus sites from 21 Sextury – definitely a worthwhile membership feature, given how highly these sites (and their network) has been reviewed not only here but elsewhere. The design and user features are also nearly perfect. An excellent model index, a professional design that’s easy to look at, favorites, good tagging, ratings, comments, and even some individual customizing – only one thing is missing here. We’ll talk about that one somewhat later. Updates are actually nearly perfect here – they’re not daily but they’re really quite close at three to four times per week on average. Oh, and one of my pet peeves is also missing – downloads are easy and convenient, without any limits or secondary paywall that I saw any evidence of whatsoever.
No Advanced Search, Resolutions Could (Should) be Higher
You may have noticed that above, I didn’t talk about resolution. Well, there’s a reason for that. The highest resolutions you’ll find at 21 Naturals is full HD 1080p. This has become the standard, and for very good reason, across the industry – and usually that’s good enough. It’s dropped from being a strong point to simply expected for most sites – but glamcore is different. With such a focus on the art of the production, I’d definitely expect to see 4K here, and they’re just not there yet. The only other thing that I really feel needs to be addressed here is the lack of advanced search. Especially given the network’s fast pace of updates, the lack of advanced search is really going to become a major sore spot in the year or two coming – there should be more than one hundred and fifty videos added at the current update pace every year, and as the network crosses the four-digits of content and continues, finding what you want is going to become harder each week. And beyond those, none of the drawbacks are really worth being talked about in the review itself – only two of them made the cut, which is in and of itself something I find impressive.
