Torrid Art is a small adult affiliate program with a single high quality site in the glamour niche, featuring the erotic photography of Ryder Aedan Perry. As is typical of the niche, the content would best be described as softcore, mainly centered around photos of beautiful babes stripping and/or posed provocatively. However, a good portion of that content is a bit more explicit than that which typically exemplifies the niche. To put it bluntly: there’s a lot more pussy on display than you will find in most other glamour programs. Most importantly, affiliates will be pleased to note that Torrid Art is an active program that continues to update, with new content added every couple of days on average.

Torrid Art provides their affiliates with a site link code and banners of course, as well as hosted galleries and corresponding content sets for the express purpose of promotion. While that initially may seem very limited, there are A LOT of hosted galleries and content sets to choose from. Affiliates looking for particular girls can easily browse the gallery/sets by model, year, hair color, and ethnicity. Furthermore, since Torrid Art is a CCBill program it is an easy matter for affiliates to create their own deep-links to the vast number of update pages included on the Torrid Art site. However, where the galleries offer full size images, the update pages do not. We would also like to mention that while the galleries and update pages are lacking in any appreciable unique text, affiliates needing inspiration for drafting their own promotional copy will find some great unique text content on the individual models pages.
As mentioned above, Torrid Art is a CCBill program, meaning that the program uses CCBill to track visitors, collect payments, and disburse affiliate commissions. Many affiliates feel that a program voluntarily removing themselves from any direct influence over sales reporting and affiliate earnings warrants some added trust, but we typically suggest affiliates verify for themselves that their CCBill ID is actually passed along to the join pages to ensure they will be credited with any resultant sales. We see no issue with the Torrid Art site and program, it’s just a good habit we suggest affiliates adopt.
All in all, we are rather impressed with the Torrid Art program. Regular updates to the site and promotional tools is certainly a plus, but we rather like the more explicit take on the glamour niche, if for no other reason than to provide surfers with a little variety that is otherwise absent. Affiliates promoting the glamour niche who would likewise like to offer their surfers something slightly more explicit should check them out.
