Babes Network apparently focuses on its models, though the exact niche that it occupies (or at least tends to) is Art Porn. It demands high artistic and technical quality, but also has much higher value than standard hardcore porn. This resource was designed to become one of the famous Art Porn sites, such as X-Art or Nubiles. Well, let’s see!
What we really get inside the Babes Network is a good amount of high-quality porn videos, with a good percent of hardcore / group sex scenes. The scenes are fine, though some pornstars tend to overact. There are four bonus sites in the network, conveniently covering some essential niches: Black Is Better, Step Mom Lessons, Elegant Anal and Office Obsession. Thus, despite the site’s inclination towards producing high-quality artistic porn, it still lacks something to become as great as the best sites in this niche, imo.
Typical scene last for just 15-20 minutes, and includes a standard scenario of a hardcore porn movie (though there is a plenty of solo and lesbian / group sex scenes, they pretty much follow the same pattern). What is special in these scenes, exposed by Babes Network, is some overwhelming passion, the girls show. They are really so happy to fuck, like they haven’t seen a dick for months. Some videos are pretty neat, some are great, but many are just a bit sick because of overacting. Anyway, it’s sure that you can get a lot of fun over here.
+ Fine amount of content
Of course, 877 videos and 881 photo sets are not that much for a network, but still enough for an average user. The collection grows by days, which is important. Average video playtime does not exceed 20 minutes, and is slightly higher than 15 minutes (though not much difference in playtime between early videos and the recent ones). Photo sets contain conventional 80 photos in average, which is quite enough (unless you need 30+ variations of every photo under a bit different angle). There are no screen caps and no bonus scenes except for those included in the network.
+ Fine Full HD quality
Babes Network offers a good choice of Full HD videos (major part of their collection is available in Full HD format). However, the bitrate is not that high: just 6,000~6,500 kbps, which is quite average for 1920x1080 mp4 files. Anyway, the quality is fine, and these scenes are pretty enjoyable. Other formats that the site has to offer is 720p HD and 540 SD, both as mp4 files, downloadable and streamable. Photos have resolution of 798x532 if you choose to watch them in browser, or you can download high-resolution photos (2240x1680) in zip archives.
+ Stable and frequent updates
Babes Network updates every day, adding a new video or a new photo set daily. There is an update schedule in Explore -> Coming Soon section, where members can preview the few next updates, including a cover with some essential information and a trailer / some photos. The update frequency is quite enough for a small network, and it won’t keep you waiting for the new scene to come. Though, I believe that the update pace has been slowed down a little bit past the few last years.
+ Generally friendly and functional design
The page layout is nice on Babes Network. You get large and high-quality scene covers, quick access to photos / videos / models / etc. via the upper panel menu, drop-down menus to save some time, tolerable color palette and high functionality of user interface. Thus, you can comment and rate any scene, add them to favorites, and even add models to favorites to track the coming updates with these girls. Embedded player is simple but it works fine. You can adjust download quality and save whole photo sets as zip archives. There are not many ads, but the pagination is very limited.
+ Beautiful models with some info in their profiles
What I always value, is information about models exposed in their profiles. Babes Network doesn’t offer through descriptions or detailed biographies, but at least they show us some stats for each model in their index, plus a conventional list of the girl’s scenes. Model index allows filtering girls by site or date, and sorting them by rating / number of views / date. You can also use simple Search to look for a particular model, or just use links provided in each scene.
+ 4 network sites
Except from Babes itself, the network includes four more porn sites: Elegant Anal, Black Is Better, Step Mom Lessons and Office Obsession. They apparently feature such niches as Anal, Interracial, Milf and the Office setting (has something to do with Fetish). Though the most scenes are published on Babes, these few site grant you the valuable diversity, so you can enjoy something more than plain “passionate” fucking.
- Pre-checked cross sales
While most sites have pre-checked cross sales, on Babes Network it becomes a real problem. It’s not easy to spot them, and it’s even harder to get rid of regular rebills. Yeah, many members complain about problems with cancellation of the sites they haven’t subscribed to willingly, not even talking about refunding. Thus, be extremely cautious when you sign up for Babes Network — a missed pre-checked cross sale can cost you extra few hundred dollars.
- Some overacting, lame camera work etc.
The porn sites that claim to belong to Art Porn niche, should be flawless. Babes Network isn’t. Some pornstars use to overact during their scenes, which makes you laugh or just feel embarrassed watching them, instead of getting excited. Also, the camera angles and close-up ratio are not perfect in this case, which irritates the watcher sometimes. It would also be nice if the photographers could shoot the whole babe, not cutting her legs off to fit her in the frame.
Expectations vs Reality
During the free tour around the landing page, and a sign-up process, you may have seen such claims as 412+ picture sets, 2240x1680 picture resolution, 100 pictures per sets, 411+ movies, 18 minute average length, full length videos and HD porn. Not very promising huh? In reality, they exceed their own promises by far: you get at least twice more photos and videos, and Full HD videos with good bitrate. Photo resolution is stated accurately. Thus, I see nothing that we could blame the producers for. Maybe, it’s just that the promises are a bit outdated.
Prices are average, or maybe a little higher: $29.95 for 1 month of membership (rebilling at $24.95), $1 for a 2-day trial, which rebills at $39.95 (total rip-off, avoid at all costs!), or $99.95 year. Pre-checked cross sales include Babes Premium, Twistys and possibly some other sites. Make sure that you’ve unchecked them all! If you’re looking for a discount, you can expect something like $9.95 for the first month (still rebilling at $24.95). Look for it around the web.
As you can see, Babes Network is a fine collection of high-quality, though not flawless, porn videos. Good amount of scenes, nice cast of models, regular updates and usable design pretty much outweigh possible problems with cross sales and cancellation. If you love some artistic porn, you would enjoy Babes Network, so pay it a visit, maybe.
