These days the concept of an open life probably mean something a bit different than they did even just a generation ago. With all of the social media, the insta-everything, I know more about peoples eating habits and their personal lives than I ever really care for. An open life does mean different things to different people though, in our case, we’re talking about sex, that’s because up for review today is the website Open Life. If my memory serves me correctly, this used to be a stand alone site, but now it serves as a network for multiple sites that include Sunny Leone, Bree Olson, Lane Sisters, Ashley Fires, and Open Life as well, among a collection of about 11 sites. The content you’ll find here is pretty much all hardcore, some sites do feature individual models prominently, while others are more general hardcore, if you think there’s anything general about multiple partner hardcore fucking, anal, DP, cock sucking, cumshots, and even kinkier stuff tossed into the mix. As a network review, I won’t be getting into detail about the specific sites, in fact the set up here tends to flow like one source of content, but it is still possible to visit each site individually. This review will be more about the collection as a whole, some of the sites might be different from one another, or stray a little bit away from what the network is, but I won’t be focusing on small details like that.
Logging in to the members area, you’ll first find yourself on the home page, this is where you’ll see what the latest scenes on the site are, as well as the top rated pornstars, and a few ads as well. Getting right to the action, aside from the home page, you have a couple of options, the videos and the photos. Videos and photo sets are related at times, but not always, so they are separated on the site. Videos with accompanying photos will provide you with a link, at times they are screen caps of the video, and other times they are part of the actual photo set collection. When you click on the videos or photos tab in the menu bar, if you want to see them in chronological order, make sure you select the “recent” option. There are a few other ways to organize the updates, you’ll find some drop down menus, category tags, and a keyword search feature as well. There’s also a pornstar index which does link you to any scenes the girls have been featured in, but there’s not much info about the girls. Overall I think this members area looks pretty good, the set up is understandable and straight forward, but I do think that as a network, with such a variety of material, more advanced search tools would be a big help. Some updates do have scene descriptions, some don’t, but other member features include adding to favorites, rating scenes, and links to related content. One of the issues I did find with navigation was that you can only go through about 10 pages of content at a time, and you can only move forward or back about 5 at a time, currently there are 100 pages of just videos, so you can see how this can be a problem.
Here at Open Life you’ll find 1272 photo sets, and 1786 videos, and as I mentioned before, not all of the photo sets are related to the videos, so in a way there’s probably a bit more unique updates here than you would find if every photo set and video were linked to each other. With the amount of content here, you should have no problem finding enough material to keep you busy for quite a while, but the downside is that they don’t appear to be updating anymore. Based on the date stamps, the most current video was added in the later part of 2015, and even though the photo sets are not dated, it’s kind of clear that there’s been no progress here as well. I have seen sites go on hiatus for whatever reason, maybe they are re-designing the site, or going in a different direction, but we are coming up on about 9 months of inactivity, so as for now, things don’t look too good for the future of Open Life. Value should not really be too much of an issue though, you’re getting plenty of content here, and you’ll also have access to bonus sites.
Date stamps are helpful, but at times they can be misleading, especially in this case since Open Life consists of individual sites that sort of have their own timeline. An example would be that the earliest updates here are from 1996, from the Sunny Leone site, which takes up a good portion of the early content, and just in one update, they go from 1996 to 2004. The point being, you’re going to find some pretty old content here, and with that, always comes the inevitable, that with older material, expect lower quality, and that’s just what you’ll get here. In comparison though, the most recent content looks great, you’ll find HD quality videos, with plenty of downloading options, and a high quality streaming video with multiple viewing options as well. Same goes for the photos sets, really nice looking images that were shot well, the quality can change depending on what site they are from, but overall, really good. There are multiple options for viewing these photos, including an auto playing slideshow, and if you’d like to keep these for your own collection, they do offer downloadable zip files. The same goes for the photos and the videos, you will see a drop in quality the further back you get into the collection.
Whenever I review a network site, there are always some obstacles, mostly because instead of focusing in on the likes and dislikes of just one site, consideration needs to encompass several sites that may or may not have their own thing going on. The upside though, tends to be that network sites just in general offer so much more in terms of actual content, variety, and entertainment. In the case of Open Life, I was really impressed with the entertainment, if you’re a fan of hardcore action, you should be a fan here. What helps of course is that you’ll find some of the hottest and well known pornstars featured here, and you’re not going to see just generic scenes, these are unique, hot, fun, and pretty stimulating as well. I like how Open Life offers us a pretty solid collection of photos and videos, but the fact that they haven’t updated in quite a while makes me wonder if we’ll ever see anything new here, or if they are turning into an archive site. This members area does work well, but I think better search and navigation tools would help efficiency, which of course just makes for a much better member experience. Overall, Open Life was a fun site to review, I’d say that I’m looking forward to see what they have in store for us, but I’m not sure that’s going to happen. Enter Open Life.
