GodsGirls falls under the umbrella of ‘alt-porn’. Pioneered by the venerable Suicide Girls, this genre features young ladies of various subcultures, sub-subcultures, and so on in all their nude glory – hipster, punk, rockabilly, goth, mod, and all the various permutations thereof. You know the drill. Tattoos undulating across wide swaths of creamy female skin. Nipple piercings, nose piercings, lip piercings, clit piercings. Creative hairstyles. Here fashion and sex are irrevocably entwined.
I’d had my eye on GodsGirls for some time and was quite looking forward to doing the review – and if anything, the members area exceeded my expectations. Always refreshing when that happens. What you get is a site brimming with counterculture erotica content alongside a genuine community feel.
There is a massive amount of material here. Over 500 models online, depicted in various states of undress in both photosets (over 3000 galleries) and videos. The vibe goes from truly homemade/self-shot sets through well-composed professional photography – there’s even an option to filter the DIY from the pro shots. The quality is excellent even with the homemade stuff, and they are quite creative – interesting costumes, props, settings, lighting, etc, gives a lot more depth than the typical ‘naked girl posing in studio’ scenario.
Each girl also has a detailed profile, and most of them keep journals/blogs on the site that allow for an intimate glimpse into their lives. Many of them regularly interact with subscribers (members are also able to post profiles and journals) and other models. There’s a busy online forum and live chat as well.
As such, GodsGirls straddles the line between well designed alt-porn site and social community, and that is a good thing. The sheer variety of sexy, interesting girls is enough to keep you passively busy for quite a while, but these interactive features really allow members to become participants in an alternate world of smokin’ hipster ladies.

A thoroughly hot and enjoyable alt-porn site, with a unique melding of genuine do-it-yourself-ness, professional polish, social networking, and the requisite smorgasbord of beautiful young rock-n-roll ladies. Highly recommended.
