I logged into ATK Hairy today and found the site accessible and responsive. There was a message saying that ATK is in the process of upgrading their hardware due to the cyber attacks they have been undergoing, and that they were upgrading the storage system to reduce latency. Some issues would be expected as the disk system rebuilds, though.
The site is up, and as they indicated, they are making strides to overcome the cyber attacks on them. Kudos to them.
I've rejoined ATK as this is one of my favorite sites. As of today, I have experienced the server being down at least three times in the four days of my new membership. Never for long, but still unacceptable. Especially considering the content quality has slipped markedly recently while the price has actually increased. I can't even email customer service to complain because the email link to customer service is on the website, which is down. Arrrgh!
Advent, webmaster for ATK responds to my complaint below. Many thanks for the explanation for the server problems. And many venomous thoughts go to the individual(s) who launched the denial of service attacks on ATK.
The site is down again. Servers have been down all day. The problems have not been resolved permanently. This is very, very troubling.
I've been a member of ATK Hairy for years, always coming back despite the changes ATK Hairy made in direction with the site (more all-over hairy girls and fewer with just hairy pussies). But recently the quality has slipped. There have been some troubling developments. Updates have been multiple sets of one girl, instead of the eight sets of different girls, and in one case, the girl didn't even have a hairy bush! Today's update recycled content from at least ten years ago and called it the "Latest Update." Please.
The membership of ATK Hairy is long-established, and many are ready to quit the site. Much as it pains me to say it, if you are looking for good hairy porn right now, this isn't the site you need to be looking at.
I recently changed my email address, to counter the various spam I was getting, and took the step of creating an alias for every site I signed up to. Eg if my email address is email@example.com, I'd create firstname.lastname@example.org when signing up to Saucy Site. The logic being that, if you start to receive unsolicited spam, the address it comes to will tell you where they found you - and you can just ditch that address if that happens.
Anyway, after signing up here, I started getting some random spammy things - not at all related to ATK or any other paysites - to the address I set up for ATK. So perhaps they are leaking addresses somewhere...?
Am avoiding irateness here, in case a plausible explanation turns up :)
Wow, $ 34.99 a month now! Either their "scary hairy" emphasis is attracting tons of new subscribers and they are cashing in on it, or the number of subscribers has dropped so dramatically that they have to raise the price in order to stay afloat. All other ATK sites appear to have kept the old subscription price.
Just tried to join this site again. I renew at least once every couple of years. The best porn site says the site cost is $24.95 if you join through best porn BUT I found that the cost is actually $34.95.
I am happy to report that the previews of the videos and full picture sets are back! This is one site that keeps drawing me back to it, even though lately I have only been peeking, but judging by the updates things are getting better for my taste. I notice quite a few sets where the model actually wears panties and bra and some even start fully clothed. Might be time to re-join soon, as long as the webmaster doesn't decide to start including b/g material. :-)
One thing I used to like about this site was that you could look at a whole set (at least the thumbs) of pictures, or a short video preview, and make up your mind, based on the teasers, if you wanted to join or not. It's gone. All you get now is a quick trip to the sign-up page. Really too bad because it was those previews of whole sets (and glimpses of a video) that made the site different and classy.
Hopefully someone here is on the DDF Network and can check on something for me. TBP lists 78 videos online but then Maggie goes on to say that there are (were?) only 17 videos. Obviously there was some sort of reorganization at some point but it's got me wondering if they're even updating. Can anyone help here?
There is a clear cut division between those who love full body hair and those who like things more moderate eg. possible pit and pussy hair but no more than that.
Just to make a decision easier for either side here is a clear statement of intent by ATKowner addressed to someone who expressed a desire to see an otherwise gorgeous model without her heavy leg hair:
ATKOwner to xxxx:
I doubt very much if Monica would consider shaving her legs and to be honest with you we would not pass on such a request to her as we are about promoting hairyness in women. So we generally encourage women to grow out if they are willing but not the other way around.
On the 25th of November I wrote: "Going from glory to glory" because, as compared to another hairy site, this one appeared to have gone back to being moderate when it came to the publication of "hairy legs" sets.
So, here I am, just about to re-subscribe because I really like the new models, but to make sure I don't waste another subscription on a site I get nothing out of any more I do a quick search under hairy legs (my pet peeve) and get 17 updates since Jan. 2, 2013!! SEVENTEEN hairy legs sets/videos in 16 days.
This sort of puts an end to the standard exhortation by web masters that "if you don't like hairy legs you can always look at something else," because 17 updates in half a month is more than just the occasional nuisance that I can choose to ignore, it is a sizable chunk of the updates. This is insane.
From now on "shaved" is in as far as I am concerned .. with a sad farewell to two of my favorite hairy sites .. and one of my favorite web masters ... who, no doubt, does what is best for the bottom line but is no longer able to please a moderate "hairy bush" lover like me.
The usual disclaimer: My discontent is in no way a reflection on the value of the site itself. The material is still top quality, the rate of updates is still excellent .. if you love hairy legs go for it. You can't lose, unless Basil's search engine was off!
This is written with more than a tinge of sadness because their main competition, as well as this site, were staples in my diet for years and it is like losing old friends. But times and tastes change, so what can you do?
I like to keep my eye on this site, just to see if it is worthwhile re-subscribing, and noticed that the latest updates listed on the tour are from December 29, 2012. Could a member please clue me in if the updates are still on a daily basis. Thanks.
Ageism is so rampant in porno land that it takes courage to publish a model over forty. Three cheers for "We Are Hairy" and Tiffany T!
This new model will no doubt cause some negative comments from the younger crowd but her presence on this fine site is enough to make me subscribe once again. And if you think I am exaggerating just go to VB (if you are a subscriber) and see the storms of protest if they dare to publish a GILF video!
They say that my account is not found.
However, I can log in.
And they say "Connect by e-mail."
However, I have not received the reply of the first mail.
Nothing is not only obtained, but I will pay 40 dollars.
I am very sad.
And for a change ... something positve from me about this site!
I just re-subscribed, motivated by the positive comments of people I trust, and am delighted with what I have found so far. Plenty of mature models! Hooray! Plenty of mature models in lingerie! Hooray again! I just got finished with a download spree .. and if ATK should not publish anything else of interest to me for the rest of my subscription I already got my money's worth this evening.
Thanks for listening to your subscribers, ATK. Quite the change and improvement since I last reviewed you.
BTW, I just found a treasure trove of sets and videos of Eden, one of my all time favorites. Delight in site increased ten fold.
I joined this site a long while ago and it provided what it advertised. There were models here that you couldn't find anywhere else. That said, the photography quality left a lot to be desired and the images were annoyingly small. Still, its unique content was a strong attractor and now I'm hoping that they have improved on both issues.
I didn't do a site rip, I simply downloaded the models I liked, but that means I can't tell if the site is still updating or not. The basic web design certainly hasn't changed, but that doesn't always mean anything. Rodney Moore hasn't updated his site's design much in years either, but he updates quite frequently.
Anybody have any idea about updates for Rico's World? Any recent experience at all?
I had signed up for this site last week along with juggmaster but didn't spend a whole lot of time browsing around. Have been busy and just got around to checking out in detail today. Looks pretty decent. As I am a fan of the natural look, it is quite appealing. The only thing I see negative so far is that the photographs, although well-composed, aren't always the sharpest images when viewed at Super-High Res. The detail is there, it's just that the focus can sometimes be soft. Then again, as an amateur photgrapher myself, I know how viewing images at high res can bring out the slightest imperfections. Other than that, it looks very well done and many of the images will certainly make nice additions to my erotic art collection. Haven't toyed with videos as I am not much of a video person. Will get around to checking them out after a while so I can write a review with all my thoughts.
I really don't get how this We Are Hairy outscores ATK Hairy. In terms of layout they are about equal navigation/search-wise. Both have massive content, and some of it dates back at least a few years so they both have issues of not everything being HD. Really, when you get right down to it, it all comes down to content. And that's why I don't see why We Are Hairy is scoring higher than ATK.
WAH has some decent models, but even their best is almost average for ATK. My primary complaint about WAH is that it is almost 99% softcore, solo modeling. No action to really speak of. Even the masturbation videos they have are, well, boring.
As far as a hirsute fetish site goes, WAH is okay, they are certainly worth a look if you just want solo models doing little else than posing. However, if you want a littel range in your hairy porn, then I would certainly look at ATK Hairy because they actually have everything from "X" to "XXX."
Obviously, it's been a while since my review, so here are a few updates.
On the plus side:
The number of models has increased nicely (250+), along with it, the addition of different age and body type models. There are also a few ethnics now appearing on the site.
Picture viewing preference can now be set globally.
Custom zip files for pictures in 3 resolutions.
On the negative side:
I have to agree with a lot of the comments that have been left on here and on the site - weird camera angles, focus and lighting issues are far too common in a lot of the picture sets. Two recurring themes that bother me personally are the models pulling on their pubic hair throughout the set and similarly having to touch themselves or keep their hands near their crotch.
With the video, I've seen a considerable amount of scenes where the camera is constantly moving, almost in (for lack of a better phrase) an amateur-with-their-first-camera fashion.
I'm still an amateur fan and definitely old school - I like my women natural and I still like the site. Fortunately, Basil is one of the most attentive webmasters I've encountered and I have no doubt that anything that can be done to appeal to more people will be taken care of.
Does this website do a lot of photo editing that causes the models to have unnatural colors or causes the pics to look unnatural.
How are the poses? Are there a bunch of useless poses without having that good shot you're waiting for or missing some of those basic poses.
They should at least have these basic poses:
1)(full body nude shot with good clarity/detail) standing or lying down
2)(boob shot) from the waist up to include the cute face of the model
3) (vagina shot) model laying down on back with legs spread, but also with her face in view without being out-of-focus. Kind of like a missionary pose.
