All that talk of changed lay-outs and bigger pictures made me subscribe once again. I really wish I would stop doing things on a whim because what good is a bigger picture if the set is mind numbingly boring. Each model seems to be basically in drab outerwear, with maybe a bikini panty for lingerie if one is lucky, and that's it. Three days back, 24 picture sets later and not one of them could be called erotic. Wish I had looked a bit more closely at the poster's comments below mine! Another wasted subscription.
Over the last couple of weeks, ATKHairy has started to increase picture sizes, and from a few photographers/studios they are of good quality, but most are still of a disappointing that does not do justice to the girls, and the sets and scenes are still repetitive and mostly boring.
The default pics now are too big to view comfortably on a monitor (even my 27" Dell) so are really not that useful, and with the poor depth of focus and digital artifacts (from too much jpeg compression?) they really are not worth viewing at their full resolution.
Videos are now sometimes available in more up-to-date formats, with the old WMV, and now SD MP4 nd HD MP4 formats available. Many of the links to the new formats do not work - as if they intended to put the files up, but something went wrong. Gradually improving though. Typical sizes from today's update: WMV 156MB, SD 189MB, HD 564MB to give you an idea. I have tried a few of the SD and HD videos, and they are a big improvment, but like the photographers, the videographers seem to be mostly just not quite expert enough to get the best out of the girls.
Most male orgasms in the "action" photo shoots are fake, very odd in a site that claims to be "natural"!
Overall, the better quality is an improvement, but it would be good to see fewer sets of pics and better quality, and videos that really get the best out of the girls.
I was just going to upgrade my review to 99 but discovered I could no longer edit it so I'm taking the lazy man's way out by saying I promised this site a 99 once its content increased and it has. I don't think I'll have reason to rue the decision to give a site my highest mark ever because:
Content has increased considerably!
There are now three updates a day (2 Picture sets, 1 Video)!
Quality and erotic value of the picture sets and videos are far superior to that of its present competitors!
Webmaster is still as attentive and personally involved as he was at the beginning!
May this site escape the ravages of the present economic downturn, it deserves nothing but success!
You may have noticed I didn't mention lingerie. I am saving my 100 for the site that features the most sets featuring erotic undies percentage wise. Haven't checked out all the updates of this site yet so, who knows, I might do the unthinkable yet and give a site the perfect score! :-)
I like this site and really want to see it succeed, especially with so few quality hairy sites out there. But more and more, it's starting to feel just like ATK Hairy. Most of the models are the same ones that appeared on ATK a month or so before, and there isn't much turn-around. The same old faces keep reappearing. Also, although the image size is bigger than ATK, the fine detail in pictures just doesn't come anywhere close to what you'd see on Met-art or a few other high-quality sites. This might be down to poor photography, but at 3000 pixels, you should be counting pores on the skin, yet many sets on WAH just look soft in close-up.
The poses are also getting to be quite boring. Every set is much the same, with corny lingerie up to the last page.
As I said, I want this site to succeed and be good, but it's getting too repetitive and the image quality isn't among the top sites. I'll see how it looks in the future.
... I had been away from this site for quite a few months and found when I returned a handful of sets and models that really appealed to me, but now that I am well into the second week of the present subscription gloom settles on me once again as I contemplate one poorly costumed, poorly done picture set after the other offered in the daily updates.
They are so incredibly hum-drum, mostly with models to match, that only a newbie could possibly find them exciting. I could drop my review score even further but am tired of fiddling with it, so for old times sake, when this was a glorious site, I am going to leave it alone. But, man, what a disappointment.
Where are all the good photographers, the ones who don't make a set look like screen caps when it comes to pictures, with one looking the same as the one before it and the one after, page after page, set after set.
And when will their videos finally come into the 21st Century? I am very disappointed in connection with the downfall of a site once rated by me as one of my "most favorite porn sites!" I would be so happy to make a more positive comment because of the fond memories I have of better days .. let's hope that down the road I'll be able to do so once again.
Nov. 13, 2010:
I just downgraded my review to 70 because during the past 13 updates containing 104 picture sets only FIVE were voted as being "hot" by the subscribers. Only one set was rated hot by me and I even deleted that one after having a more thorough look.
I hate to sound like a shill for this site but I love the way they make it easy for potential subscribers to make up their minds by making it possible to look at complete picture sets in their tour to see what they are all about. I just took a look at a couple of their latest updates (in reduced format, of course) and am about to re-subscribe because I actually found some sets containing sufficient lingerie to keep me happy.
As you know I gave them a high score in a review and I still think it was well deserved because they pay such attention to details that are so important to their potential clients.
Been a member for a few weeks, found everything to be fine. Just what I expected from the site after reading reviews and looking through the samples. Have been a member of the "other" hairy site a few times - all OK with wearehairy so far...
Except, I've had a few login issues recently. As in the Members link doesn't respond, keeps timing out...
Any other wearehairy users having similar issues (late October 2010)?
I've mailed support, so will wait and see what the response is like...
Just finished another month on Hairy. It's getting even more repetitive; how many identical sets of the same model can a guy sit through, no matter how nice she is? Just when you think a model has gone away, she comes back a couple of months later for yet more endless sets of the same poses.
Sadly, Sean R remains the only photographer turning in sets with pro quality. All the others are either falsely-sharpened, have bad depth of field, bad lighting, or the images are overcompressed, giving unrealistic images.
And the models? A few occasional cuties, but still too many bizarre tattooed skanks with body piercings and weird makeup.
I just wanted to let everyone know that the good people at We Are Hairy hooked us up with special discount prices. They included a monthly, 2 month & 3 month discount options. This site scored well and if you have been on the fence about checking it out, now is a good time :)
I won't change my score for the site because I still think they're good at what they do, and the site is still relatively new, but video fans might be somewhat disappointed here. It's two updates a day, but an average of every fifth or sixth one (sometimes more) is a video, some of which are non-nude interviews.
Looks like this will be my next join. The navigation looks like it'll be easy to get around the site. The video quality of the flash video previews alone look good enough to make me think this'll be a winner. A review will be forthcoming, of course.
Everything I said in my review re. quality of the site I consider to be true. In my eyes it easily surpasses ATK Natural and Hairy which used to be the top site for hair lovers but made no effort to improve their video quality, so my score stands, this is at the moment the best site in this niche, but ...
... one word of warning: if you are a lingerie lover this site will disappoint you. So I would modify my statements by saying if you are under thirty and are used to cotton undies or no undies or too few undies this will be your home from now on.
If you are over forty and like slow strips from fully clothed, slowly revealing ALL the lingerie (does anyone wear bras these days?) until completely nude you will be doing a lot of looking forward to the next update because this one doesn't quite cut it.
As always, my comments regarding lingerie are completely subjective. Agreement is not expected. :-)
It is quite refreshing to see so many young faces among the unshaved. I hope it will become a trend and everyone will go back to natural. My dream: no tattoos, no piercings, no fake breasts, no shaving!
Now if this new site would only find some mature women to add to their collection. That shouldn't be terribly difficult because most mature women would rather not shave, anyway.
I know, I know, that's all you see in Porn these days but ask any woman over forty of your acquaintance if she shaves and I am willing to bet that not one of them does. Of course, be prepared for a slap in the face! :-)
Ah, but I got side-tracked: Please, webmaster, track down some attractive MATURE models (thirty and up) with bush for those of us who find teenies a bit too young. Thank you!
I've just canceled my membership on this site too after pretty much 5 years continuous membership. As many others have commented, it has become very repetitive with the same girls shot by the same photographers every two or three days. In days of old it used to be 7-10 days before you saw the same girl twice.
It has also moved more mainstream recently - Aria Giovanni is on here these days. Nothing against her, she's a gorgeous woman, but hardly an "amateur".
And finally my old favourite Sean R. seems to have lost his mojo. As I put in my review on here a while back he used to shoot the most fantastic close-up gaping pussy shots, but he's not quite so up close and personal any more.
Any finally, finally! still don't bother with the video!
The site rep says she looks at this site everyday, so this should get her attention.*
I joined this site a few years back and enjoyed what I saw - except for the fact that I had to play with video editting to join clips together. In this day and age, I think that's just too old school. So, assuming the information on TBP is up to date and they're not already online, I hope ATK is considering putting full-length video up.
*Comment editted to correct my gender gaffe. Thanks Capn for pointing that out. : - )
After 8 years of constant subscription, I canceled my membership to ATK Hairy at the end of my billing month. Why you may ask?
Not because I think the site sucks.
Not because I am unhappy with customer service.
Factors contributing to my leaving are the following.
(1) After being a long-term subscriber I realized that there was no real incentive or discount for loyalty. I can always rejoin.
(2) A BIG reason is the site doesn't have as many American girl next door types as they used to. I generally do not like the Eastern European models and near-pro models. I like amateurs and hairy ladies that the site purports to get. Get more and I will come back.
(3) No interactive user forum for sharing comments.
(4) Some of their most used photographers are not that good and too tame. For example of two extremes - T. Mayes is lame, Sean R. is great.
I will use the money to subscribe to other sites and review them and if they suck worse, I'll be back to ATK Hairy.
I am a four time subscriber to this site and my latest subscription leaves me immensely disappointed. The models have become second rate, the photography is repetitious and boring and the videos are still far from acceptable. I downloaded seven of one of my favorite models the other day and five were unwatchable in both wmv and mov formats. The support specialist has promised to have them fixed within the next 48 hours but with a bit of care there shouldn`t have been a need to fix them in the first place.
Out of the last three updates, which to their credit have always been huge, I've downloaded ONE set of pictures. My main pleasure has been to grade the picture sets with a one or two out of five points. No doubt personal preferences might have a lot to do with my complaint because most models this morning received the designation hot. Go figure, maybe cotton and wool and denim are considered hot nowadays.
Paris P (90)
Models: Americans. Pretty gals, many GND types.
Sets: Outdoors, indoors. Lighting very good.
Direction: Good. Being a female photographer gives her a different perspective. You can tell that the models look comfortable and ready to do what asked. Her framing of shots is excellent.
Face Shots: excellent
Body Shots: excellent
Crotch Shots: Very good
Ass Shots: Very good
Explicit close-ups: good
Overall: A strong photographer.
Models: Americans. Very similar selection as Alicia S. More to the glam style, lots of make-up.
Sets: Definitely stages areas, indoors, lighting good
Direction: Almost glam style. Lots of dildo stuff. Gets them to pose ok.
Face Shots: good
Body Shots: good
Crotch Shots: good
Ass Shots: good
Explicit close-ups: ok, could use more.
Overall: Good work. I have to wonder what the relation between Alicia, PKM and HMB is. Very similar. Shared models…. Hmmmm
Riley Williams/RWL (90 – 5 = 85)
Models: Americans from the Pacific Northwest. Very many GND types. Mostly college gals. Wide range of sizes, shapes, colors. He recently returned from a break for a couple of years. His later models tend to be overweight.
Sets: Outdoors, indoors. Lighting very good.
Direction: Excellent. He is a master of posing the models and getting the shots he want. Models always look comfortable and ready to do what asked. He also needs to increase from the scant 70-80 shots per set he provides (-5)
Face Shots: excellent
Body Shots: excellent
Crotch Shots: excellent
Ass Shots: poor to good
Explicit close-ups: very good. He used to do peeing sets, but seems to have stopped this. In general he seems a bit tamer than he was in the early 2000’s
Overall: An American master. He needs to upgrade his model stack a little, but he has the skills. I personally wish he would get more ass shots that were not from a weird angle. Be direct now and then.
Roman K (75)
Models: Russians. His models are cute, but have too much Russian porn-star in them and lack realness. Pros and Ams.
Sets: Moslty indoors. Lighting good.
Direction: good. Not very innovative and his poses are boring.
Face Shots: very good
Body Shots: good , mostly at distance
Crotch Shots: poor
Ass Shots: poor
Explicit close-ups: poor , some peeing shots
Overall: Roman is typical of Russian porn. There is a sterile quality and the models do not generate much life as compared to J Ant. Much of the posing is from a distance and there are far too few explicit shots.
Robin W./RWA (80)
Models: United Kingdom. Nice mixture of looks, ages and sizes. Typically shoots the same gals as Sean R.
Sets: Mostly indoors, good lighting
Direction: Very good. Gets them to pose ok. Could be more versatile. Models seem comfortable. Good with a camera
Face Shots: Very good
Body Shots: Very good
Crotch Shots: good
Ass Shots: poor
Explicit close-ups: generally poor
Overall: Good models. It is nice to have a different perspective on the same models that Sean R uses. Robin is much more tame and not very explicit. Score would be better if he included some more ass shots and was a little more explicit.
Sean R. (95)
Models: United Kingdom. Nice mixture of looks, ages and sizes. A whole lot of variety from freaks & skanks to moms to GDN types.
Sets: Mostly Indoors. Lighting Outstanding
Direction: Excellent. This guy knows how to get the models to pose to get the shots he wants. At the same time, the models seem comfortable.
Face Shots: very good
Body Shots: poor. Rarely shows good shots of the breasts and full body shots.
Crotch Shots: Excellent
Ass Shots: Excellent, he is one of the few that can really frame a female ass and associated nether regions to get the greatest shots.
Explicit close-ups: Excellent
Overall: The premier ATK photographer today. Lots of shots, lots of poses. He knows how to frame a shot and get the right lighting. Others should sit up and take some lessons from Sean. He is a master at explicit photography. His weakness is that he universally fails to take many pictures of the models full bodies and breasts. Yes, they are there, but you have to look at a lot of shots to get an idea of what their bodies, in total look like.
