Digital Desire review

Category Erotica, Glam

Price

$24.99/Month

Arguably the life's work of the late J. Stephen Hicks, Digital Desire was once one of the online porn world's most acclaimed and respected softcore websites. Now in a state of flux due to Hicks's recent passing, Digital Desire seems to be falling a little from its formerly top perch. Its 720p videos are outclassed by other sites' 1080p formats, older updates are being presented as new, and scenes just don't have the same impact they once did, having now become predictable and formulaic. That said, there's still an amazing archive of beautiful, atmospheric nude modeling shoots and masturbation scenes here keeping Hicks's legacy intact… for now.

Digital Desire review | Mr. Pink's Porn Reviews
MrPinks.com review date - 09/04/2013

Overview:
Taking the boundless range and variety of human sexuality and attempting to distill it into digitized form is not a task for the weak, the uncommitted, or anyone afraid of such a monumental task. One man who braved that frontier, albeit in a fairly narrow way, was J. Stephen Hicks, the late proprietor and head photographer of Digital Desire, a site focusing on high quality images intended to arouse your erotic appetite like no other site on the 'net. Digital Desire has been in operation for some 16 years and has, in that time, gone from a small and largely unfulfilling Internet upstart to a revered member of the online erotic elite. Promising its members more than 250,000 images and 1,000 videos starring 1,500 women, some of them the most erotically charged nude models currently working, Digital Desire hopes to calm your shakes and get your libido all in a tizzy. Where other adult sites would attempt this with a barrage of explicit hardcore activity, Digital Desire instead opts for refined sensuality with its predominantly softcore material. Getting inside the Digital Desire archive will cost you $24.99, but with erotic treasures that must be seen to be believed, it's not really a question of if you'll indulge, but when.

Pros:
You could toss burlap sacks over the incredibly enticing women of Digital Desire and millions of men would still thrust their groins (and their coins) in this direction. Bridging the hardcore and erotica worlds, the model roster includes Mia Malkova, Gianna Michaels, Megan Salinas, Lexi Bloom, Charmane Star, Jana Cova, Abella Anderson, Aria Giovanni, Shay Laren, and Alisha Klass, among many, many others.

Digital Desire is another erotica site that has made strides into hardcore territory, although those seem to be tapering off of late. What's left online is a good mix of softcore and slightly harder content that celebrates the female form in repose, while masturbating, and posing for an audience. he moody lighting and smokey bedroom locations bring plenty of atmosphere to what might otherwise be fairly dull shoots.

Known around the 'net for its extremely high quality imagery, Digital Desire delivers powerful photos and videos that provide immense detail in each beautifully-shot frame. Photos can be viewed online at 800, 1024, 1280, 1600, and 3000px, while videos reach 720p High Definition resolutions and look great streamed or downloaded.

Not content with merely providing its members with 2,716 photo galleries and 1,028 videos (and daily updates to the archive), Digital Desire also offers a wealth of bonuses to all members: desktop wallpapers, backstage and behind-the-scenes content, audition and casting footage, daily featured photos, and an active forum where members, models, and webmasters can share stories and opinions.

Cons:
Digital Desire might have a range of photo viewing options and resolutions, but videos aren't so well served. Limited to the (admittedly strong) 720p HD video format, these videos are beaten by many other erotic nude sites offering 1080p formats bringing stronger imagery and more vivid sound.

For some time now, Digital Desire has been producing video content focusing on sultry poses and rather tepid masturbation. While these kinds of scenes do offer some light thrills, the thrills run dry pretty quickly. The formulaic, predictable videos are a common cause for complaint in the forums.

As Digital Desire tries to recover from its founder, J. Stephen Hicks's recent passing, old content is being presented alongside new releases. While this is certainly understandable - I'm sure the entire Digital Desire family will be mourning Hicks for a long, long time - it's nonetheless disappointing and can be confusing to those who might not read the user comments below each update.

In a state of flux and nobody really knows where Digital Desire is headed, least of all those behind the wheel. Forum threads ask members what they'd like to see in Digital Desire's future, but everyone has a differing opinion and it all seems to be leading, well, nowhere in particular.

Conclusion:
When the founder, owner, and lead photographer of an adult website unfortunately passes away before his time, those he (or she) worked with are left to try and keep their friend and partner's creation running smoothly, not only for the fans but to maintain a legacy and reputation that took decades to achieve. When J. Stephen Hicks passed away from cancer in February of this year, the future of Digital Desire was cast in an uncertain light. Now, six months on, the future is still unclear. Videos peak at 720p resolution and can't quite match the 1080p formats seen on other softcore and erotica sites; the update schedule now sees more reposts of older content than ever before; there's even some serious discussions concerning what Digital Desire should and will be happening in the forums. Whatever the future holds for this once magnificent site, there's more than enough high quality softcore content here to keep any fan aroused and entertained for months on end. As long as that material remains online and accessible, Hicks's legacy and influence will not be dimished.
