Metart Acquires VivThomas.com

Metart COO, Shaun Lenihan, is pleased to announce that the company has acquired VivThomas.com for its Metart Network of adult entertainment properties.

Metart and Viv Thomas entered into a website management agreement in March 2013. When Viv Thomas recently announced plans for his retirement, negotiations were opened, culminating in the outright purchase of VivThomas.com by Metart. The change of ownership will have no effect on existing affiliates as they are already in the Metart program.

A fixture in the international adult market since the early 1980s, Viv Thomas has created an instantly recognizable style and crafted a massive catalog of high end erotica.

In collaboration with his wife and a support crew of artists and technicians, the VivThomas brand delivers beautiful people in wonderful places and combines passionate, explicit action with intense, pure emotion. Long recognized as a leader and innovator of lesbian erotica, VivThomas.com also offers boy/girl content, further broadening the appeal of the brand.

The Viv Thomas motto - "A Cut Above The Rest" - is a guiding principle of the company that has earned it a large and loyal fan base as well as numerous awards and the respect of leading industry professionals.

Viv Thomas was delighted to hand over the reins to Metart who will carry the VivThomas brand forward as their own, while honoring the style and vision of its creator.

Speaking from his base in Portugal, Viv Thomas said: "My career has been a roller coaster ride with all the thrills and joy, ups and downs, and the pure pleasure of working at something I loved. VivThomas.com and Metart is the perfect match, I can't wait to see what the future holds."

The Science and Psychology of Erotica...for Loving Couples

[Photo credit: Miguel Pires da Rosa, original image via Wikimedia, Creative Commons licensed.]

For a single, romantically unattached individual, graphic erotica is a natural, obvious, and even necessary part of a satisfying sex life. We all have needs, sexual needs, and viewing erotic photos or videos is a convenient, effective, and powerful stimulant — readily available fuel to ignite the libido and inspire orgasmic activities. But savoring sexual entertainment in private, when one is alone, can present problems, challenges, and even opportunities for personal growth, when the individual becomes part of a couple.

A recent study, published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy, examined the effects and influences of erotica and porn on the relationships of heterosexual couples. Kevin Alderson and Marley Resch, leading a team of Canadian researchers, recruited 340 females to participate in the study. The participants, students or employees of a college in western Canada, ranged in age from 18 to 41 and all were in committed relationships with males who admitted to consuming pornography.

The study's participants completed a range of online questionnaires to determine their personal porn viewing habits, and their so-called "distress level" regarding sexually explicit material. They were also asked if they felt that their partners were honest and open about pornography consumption, as well as their general satisfaction with their relationships.

Not surprisingly, Alderson and Resch's study found that women who felt that their partners were truthful about their use of erotic entertainment reported higher levels of satisfaction with their relationships as well as lower levels of distress about erotica.

The study also examined couples who viewed erotic materials together. While couples who mutually consumed porn reported no significant impact on overall relationship satisfaction, a lower distress level was revealed.

While enjoying erotic entertainment goes hand in hand with autoerotic activity, and is considered by many an intensely private and personal matter, the study revealed that openness and honesty are key to successfully integrating adult entertainment into a committed relationship.

Dr. Frances Walfish, Psy.D., a noted author and psychotherapist, supported the study's conclusions. "Being honest about pornography use with a partner indicates that the person is comfortable with their own sexuality and the things that sexually titillate, stimulate, arouse and turn-on their excitation,” she explained to MedicalDaily. Dr. Walfish added that, “When both partners are equally open sexually and emotionally, pornography can be an exciting, wonderful foreplay. Often, watching can stimulate ideas, themes and scenarios that can elicit spontaneity and adventure for the couple."

Truer words have seldom been spoken — all the more reason to share and enjoy the Sexart experience with a lover!

    Beautifully expressed, Witchit – that you for the wonderful feedback. While I do appreciate all our 18 and 19 year old cuties, I think the maturity someone like Emylia brings is a fantastic change of pace. You can see how confident and comfortable she is with her sexuality. Her connection with Michael is so authentic, it's pure pleasure to watch. I'll be delighted to pass on your regards to Emylia; if you've read my interview with her on the blog, you'll be aware she doesn't even know how special she is, and of course that's part of her charm :-)

    That was quite beautiful. Quite apart from offering the wonderful gorgeous Emylia and hunky Michael, the sex was almost completely natural, with very few of the stereotyped positions that are so commonly used in mainstream porn. In trying to ensure that no detail is obscured those videos end up leaving the sex looking like an anatomy lesson.

    The camera angles in this scene did so much to emphasise the passion above the physical sex that just about the only improvement I can think of would have been to cut to a close up of Emylia's face when Michael came inside her. That little gasp she gave as he flooded into her was more erotic than a hundred facials, in my opinion.

    One of the other places where SexArt really steps out of the mainstream is when it comes down to the woman's enjoyment, and Emylia came several times, and I did along with her. The way they kissed so frequently also made it seem very real, as did the continued eye contact they had. Even the way Emylia held Michael helped up the erotic tension, although in the first half there was still quite a bit of separation between them as he succumbed to the old business of holding his body away from hers to expose the action. When Emylia was in charge she was so much better about lying on his chest and it did nothing to detract from what must be one of the best scenes on this site.

    A great deal of the erotic heat in sex comes from the reactions of the couple to each other. I would go back to that gasp of pleasure that Emylia gave when Michael came inside her. Did the shot of his come leaking from her add to it? No, but then what possibly could?

    If the directors and actors who work for SexArt want any justification for why the members like creampies (horrible word) this video is it. I would go back, edit out the leaking semen and force every maker of erotic movies to watch it, because I really don't think it gets any better than this.

    Apologies for the essay, but the team produced something extra special here, and I would love it if they did it again and again. It is this kind of passion that makes SexArt the special place it is. Blow a kiss to Emylia from me.

    Simply sexy, just hot. Fantastic sex scene between a super erotic couple.
    Emylia Argan is so incredibly seductive. When I see her, I melt like ice in the sun. Her beautifully shaped pendulous breasts are among the most beautiful that I know. They belong in my personal hall of the most beautiful breasts in the world.
