Time to Vote: Twistys Treat of the Year

It’s that time of year again — Twistys is doing their annual Treat of the Year vote-a-thon. I’ve always been a huge fan of their photography, and we spotlight a lot of their work via the headshots that appear along side the performer filmographies.  The first round of voting is over, and they’ve narrowed the field down to six models, of which five have done hardcore movie work, so I thought I’d spotlight them to help you (a) decide how to vote and (b) watch their movies. :-)

(It’s best if you’re a fan of g/g or solo, as this batch of Treats are all no-boys-allowed.)

Chronologically speaking:

May 2010: Adrienne Manning

Nebraska native Adrienne Manning has had a long career as a web model, coming on the scene around 2006 or so, appearing on Melissa Midwest’s site and then branching off on her own. She’s only made the leap to  movies recently, and three movies we list  have focused on solo and g/g scenes…

July 2010: Bree Daniels

Bree Daniels is another newcomer with an awesome rack and a host of g/g or solo movies under her belt.

 

August 2010: Prinzzess Felicity Jade

Prinzzess gets a new name over at Twistys– Felicity Jade — to go with her other monikers: Princess Sabara and Prinzzess Sahara.  Prinzzess has long been a staple over at Girlfriends Films and Twistys was smart to jump on the bandwagon. We’ve got 69 films of hers listed (we can’t make this stuff up) and she’s smoking in damned near every one.

  

October 2010: Chrissy Marie

Chrissy Marie is the only model in this years Treat-Off that doesn’t have any IAFD credits.  This is a shame, because she’s got a bod built for sin…

  

November 2010: Emily Addison

Emily Addison‘s film work is mostly as a blonde, but at Twistys, she’s something darker – all raven haired and sultry. Like so many others on the list, Emily focuses on g/g scenes, having shot a bulk of her work for Anastasia Pierce…

  

December 2010: Sabrina Maree

Rounding out the  slate of nominees for Twistys Treat of the Year is Sabrina Maree, a g/g performer who has shot for most the big studios around – Adam & Eve, Zero Tolerance, etc – but only has a single title from each studio out right now, so she’s got seven titles to her credit, thus far…

  

So, head on over to Twistys and vote.

Fine print: you need to be a member of Twistys in order to vote, but they’ve got a special where you can sign up for as little as a buck (2 day trial) or take the annual pass for $95.40.  If you don’t like auto-renewals, they also offer a $65 for 6 months non-recurring plan.

Website Review: wicked.com

Roger T. Pipe sends along this review of wicked.com…

(please let us know if this kind of thing is something you’d like to see more of…)

Anyone familiar with adult movies in the past two decades knows exactly what to expect from anything with the Wicked name on it. They are one of the leading producers of high end adult entertainment featuring some of the most beautiful stars and the most passionate sex scenes. www.Wicked.com delivers the same quality that fans expect from their movies. The site offers weekly updates and a huge collection of scenes as well as full movies for your viewing pleasure.

Currently housing over 3,750 scenes and 1,650 different stars, it is a massive collection of high end erotica with something for everyone. All of your favorite Wicked girls are here. From the current crop including Stormy Daniels, Kaylani Lei and jessica drake to classic Wicked contract stars like Stephanie Swift, Devinn Lane, Jenna Jameson and my personal favorite, Serenity.

In addition to the contract starlets, www.Wicked.com boasts a huge collection of scenes from other top stars past and present. You can pretty much pick a girl and find a collection of scenes. From Asa Akira, Andy San Dimas, Aurora Snow, Kristina Rose and Tori Black to Asia Carrera, Amber Lynn, Alicia Rio, Kaitlyn Ashley and Taylor St. Clair and all kinds of girls in between, this site is a fantastic collection of the hottest porn stars of the last twenty years. In addition to the star power, big budget movies and hot scenes available, www.Wicked.com also offers exclusive behind the scenes looks at their movies and the stars. Unique BTS clips and red carpet reels are part of the fun. Featuring unparalleled star power, excellent video quality and a huge collection of Wicked scenes and movies, membership to www.Wicked.com is like having your own personal Wicked Pictures library.

SITE BREAKDOWN

Home

Navigating www.Wicked.com is fairly simple thanks to a solid design. There is a toolbar across the top of the page and a good deal of new material right on the main page at all time. Just below the toolbar is a large photo of “Girl of the Week” (Gracie Glam right now) and a list of upcoming additions to the site.

Working down the main page we get “Scenes”, “Movies” and “Girls” in sortable thumbnail format. The twelve most recent are featured, but you can also change it up to view the twelve most viewed or most popular scenes, movies or girls. They are then viewable in pages of fifteen with thumbnails, add date, title or star name, views and rating. All of these also feature direct links to the individual update pages.

The main page is easy to use, but if you prefer the toolbar, it is really well laid out.

Scenes

Shown 15 per page, scenes may be viewed by most recent, most viewed or most liked order. As of today (7/27/11) there are 2,983 scenes onWicked.com. They go back a long way and feature more porn stars than any of us would care to count. Individual scene pages feature a huge screen shots that is also one-click screaming of that entire scene. There is basic information provided including star name, add date and the title of the movie the scene was pulled from. (With an easy link to view to entire movie.) There are links to photo galleries as well and the option to download the scenes. Video streams at 240, 480 or 720p. They download at HD720, DVD or iPod quality. Photos are available in gallery or zip format.

Movies

Full movies are displayed 20 per page with a box cover shot, add date, views and rating displayed. www.Wicked.com features really new Wicked titles. As of today (7/27/11) the most recent titles are “Teacher’s Pet”, “Cougars Take it Black” and “Eternal” which are brand new titles to DVD. No real lag time here. There are currently 518 full movies available to view any time you want. Movie update pages feature a large screen shot that serves as a one-lick streaming option. Movies may be watched as a whole or split into scenes. Video streams at 240, 480 or 720p. They download at HD720, DVD or iPod quality. Photos are available in gallery or zip format.

This is pretty much the Wicked collection all at your fingertips. (Though I noticed that the movie I wrote for them, Guilty Pleasures, is not included.) All of their lines are represented here as well. There are titles from the couples-oriented Wicked Passions line. Comedies like “Boobwatch” and “Rocki Whore Picture Show” are easy to find. Their award winners like “Speed”, “3 Days in June” and “2040? are also available. If you prefer older titles, there are tons of those. The Jenna Jameson and Serenity era are well represented with some classic movies “Lost Angels”, “Conquest”, “Indigo Delta” and “Hell on Heels.” They even go back further than this with some Shyla LaVaeaux and Teri Weigel movies. If you are a fan of Wicked movies, this collection is impossible to beat.

Girls

Every girl features on www.Wicked.com has her own page. This makes it much easier to find material form the women you are looking for. Girls are shown 15 at a time with large pictures, number of scenes and ratings displayed. By default the girls are listed by most active. (jessica drake with 170 scenes) but you can also sort by most liked (also Ms. Drake with Kirsten Price in second place). Exclusive girls get their own sort and you can always sort through by first letter in an alphabetical sort. With over sixteen hundred model pages a text search would be really helpful.

Model pages feature a nice picture and many feature a text bio. Some of them are quite extensive and interesting while others are sketches. Every scene and movie featuring the actress is displayed in an easy to use system. Users can “like” a girl to improve her rating and leave comments on her board as well.

Bonus Videos

In addition to all of the hardcore action on Wicked.com there are loads of special video features to enjoy. BTS reels make a large portion of this material. Take a look behind the scenes at the making of some of Wicked’s biggest features. Red Carpet and Event videos are also featured. You can take a look at the Wicked Girls as they strut their stuff at movie premiers and award shows.

There are also bonus feeds here. They are lower quality video streams covering every niche you can imagine. There are almost fifty thousand scenes available. You can search around here and find plenty of good stuff. It isn’t quite Wicked quality, but it’s free and offers something different.
