My Opinion About JuliLand

Just looking at the mini-promo reel that JuliLand features, I can already see the infinite creative possibilities that truly make erotic photography and video sites so awe-inspiring and sensually exciting to me. My attention is already captivated before I get to the members' page, and there's no better sign of my anticipation than that.

JuliLand is the brainchild of sexpert Juli Ashton. If you haven't heard her name before, then you can check out the about page in the tour where you'll find out that her portfolio consists of host to Playboy TV's Night Calls Live series and numerous adult films. Richard Avery is the photographic force behind the images on JuliLand.com, and in my not so humble opinion the combination of these two and many other talents make for an intensely erotic experience.

I soon discover that there are daily updates. The members' area isn't much different from the tour and it's easy to navigate through the main sections of the site. Aside from an about and news page, there are six menu options. JGrrls is where you can find profiled models every month and this section also provides you some extra depth beyond the outward personas of these sexy babes. There are 22 model profiles, but the site hardly limits itself to these babes alone.

Fotoland offers 125 sets shot by Avery, and my heart skipped a beat or two seeing names like Dita Von Teese, Aria Giovanni and former Penthouse Pet, Celeste Star, among others. Models are definitely the cream of the crop in this section. I was specifically interested in experiencing the sets with Nautica Thorne, because I often see her on amateur sites with little or no make-up and with her legs spread. I was eager for something different. There were at least four sets featuring Thorne in this section. I was a little disappointed. The chick is great, and I loved seeing her in images with a bit more edge. The photos were bang on, but looking at all four sets simultaneously, I realized there wasn't as much originality as I'd hoped. Make-up, location, lingerie and props changed, but the poses were too similar and spreads flowed repetitively from clothed or semi-nude shots to Thorn with her legs spread and either a finger dipped into her pussy or a toy protruding out from her kitty. Perhaps this was Avery's consistent vision of her, but I'd have enjoyed more daring sets. In any case, all can be downloaded in zips, and there are 15 to 25 shots in each. You can view 620x809 images online and the download photos are slightly larger, although surprisingly there aren't any 1024 or larger full-screen images.

Playland is another photo section. Here you can find wallpapers and another 11 sets that aren't found elsewhere on the site. I particularly loved the fact that Juli appeared in a number of the photos. It exemplified that she's not only lending her name to the site, but is an active participant, which is reiterated in the 69 podcasts available to members. The line-up of interviews is impressive. Many of the models in Fotoland are interviewed along with legend Nina Hartley and well-known author and columnist Tristan Taormino.

MovieLand contains 125 episodes. You get a choice between streams, iPod downloads and 800Kbps QuickTime downloads, which are packaged in zip files. The three minute film I watched had a music track that worked well for the erotically charged vignette called "Clean". Basically, a film grabs hold of a theme and, using that, the filmmaker illustrates a moment in time. In this movie, the model Ruby Luster's face is smudged with make-up, which is quite possibly symbolic of a mood or event. She showers away the colour, soaps up her body, and the grit of the day trickles down her skin and spirals down the drain. For those who enjoy experimental erotica, the films are intriguing. However, if you're looking for highly sensual movies to stroke to, I'm not sure that many of these videos will suit your needs.

Final Verdict

JuliLand is different from other erotic and photography sites that I've seen, but this is hardly surprising, since photographer/filmmaker Richard Avery brings his own unique style to each photo or video set. I'd call him a bit of a minimalist. He doesn't appear to like using an overabundance of props. Studio locations, which definitely represent his fashion background, appear to be his favourite space, and stark lighting is often, though not always, blasting through each shot. His approach puts emphasis on the bare beauty of the feminine form, and without all the usual adornments. I often felt he stripped his models of the typical glamour that the more famous of the bunch might be used too. In this way, Juli Land is refreshing and, from an artistic POV, I am intrigued, fascinated and excited. However, for those of you looking for less art and more boudoir sensuality, I can't say that you'll find it here. While this doesn't make JuliLand any less sexy, I think the site will best appeal to palettes that enjoy the erotic taste of fashion edgy.
