You don't have to review porn for very long before you start to get jaded. Let's face it, every dedicated porn surfer has probably seen way too much of this stuff than is healthy, and pushing the envelope is getting harder every day.
All of which makes the Hegre Archives such a relief. Welcome to a new experience in porn. Here are young girls (very young, in our humble estimation) without big make-up, saline boobs, exotic piercings or skanky tatoos. OK, a few of them have tatoos, but you know what we mean. These aren't pornstars or strippers. They are beautiful international amateurs captured by Norwegian photographer Petter Hegre.
On the scale of gonzo to high art the Hegre archives definitely lean toward the art. There is no hardcore action or even masturbation. And if you want kink you can pretty much forget it. But that doesn't mean it isn't erotic! If you are someone who likes looking at naked women--and we'll bet you are if you're reading this--then you really owe it to yourself to check this site out. Sexy yes! but you'll fall in love too.
The site itself is impossible to knock. It just doesn't get any better. Design is very clean and easy to navigate. The only thing we missed was a model locator-index, which would have really come in handy given the number of pics there are. The emphasis is on still photography and the site features huge clear pics that will make your screen seem like a window into another world. The effect is that much like actually being there. The feel is all natural, with a lot of natural settings and relaxing models.
Updates? Daily. Content? All exclusive, all girl, sometimes two girls playing together, with a total of 22,760 pics when we visited. Extras? There's a great E-zine (we can't believe we're saying there's a great porn zine out there, but it's true!) called Fresh. If you're even slightly interested in what's happening in erotic photography you won't want to miss it. The site also features an interesting "Photoforum" section where pictures are sent in by members (Petter throws in his two cents on occasion).
The movies (updated weekly) were pretty basic "behind-the-scenes" stuff (pose and relax, here comes the camera, cue the dippy jazz music, etc.). The quality, however, was excellent, with over 30 movies of 20-25 megs each. This isn't really our kind of thing (movies are best when there's some action or a story), but it is very professionally done. It certainly stacks up well with the rest of the stuff out there.
Yes, we are jaded porn reviewers. Around here we tend to like it pretty rough. When we think high art, erotic "nudes" we roll our eyes too. So take this into account: When we visited this site we felt we already had a bias against it. And we were converted! Praise be to Petter! Hallulejah!
