A quick tour revealed that WAH has been doing four updates a day since August! Very impressive. It does my heart good to see that this site is prospering and ever improving (despite my rather "frightened" comment a while ago.) I really was scared that "scary" hairy would take over, but don't see much of a sign of that happening. Thanks, Basil, for sticking with a good formula. Now, please give me more models in lingerie! :-)
I was doing some studying, and got in the mood to look at some naked chicks. After logging in and browsing ATK Hairy some, I started getting into the mood to study again. I'm about to turn off my computer to go study, instead of getting off to porn.
Good for me. Not so good for ATK Hairy.
The ATK Empire is still great, and the new Hairy site layout is still impressive, but I only like a few standout girls on ATK Hairy right now. To each his own, but like someone here mentioned earlier: the users comments at ATK Hairy say it all. One dude was raving about a girl's peach-fuzz mustache - I kid you not! People will complain about girls only having bushes. It's bizarre.
I'll break it down, because I don't want to complain without giving specifics. It's all opinion, of course.
1.) The Eastern Euro chicks are just as generic and skippable here, and look far from natural. Too model-y. And too often the photography of them just sucks.
2.) Too much Sean R. Way overrated. His girls have become more garish on this site, as well.
3.) I believe there are naturally-beautiful girls, and there are girls that are ho-hum. That's just the way of the world. Lately at ATK Hairy, if a girl is hairy, it doesn't matter if she's ho-hum - she gets automatic entry.
4.) Too many of these girls have long, lifeless, drab hairdos. Especially the non-American girls. I like short hair, and I like long hair. I do NOT like unstyled hair. Someone call Stacy and Clinton on some of these chicks. Salons are not a bad thing. If I wanted it that natural, I would jerk off to Nat. Geo.
5.) A lot of the newer photographers that have lately made ATK Galleria and Exotics extra enjoyable don't even have a presence on ATK Hairy. That can't help things, IMHO. I seriously doubt that all those photographers are anti-pubic hair. Is it because they take pictures of girls that are worth looking at?
6.) Too much hair-frenzy.
So, that's the bad, and it's starting to monolopize that site. I wish they struck a better balance with the things I do like about the site:
1.) The photographers Atomic W., Angela W., BMB, Afterglow, R. Field. They usually find cute girls. If it weren't for them, I'd never join the site.
2.) Yes, I like the young, trendy, American, porn-nubile look. But I also like the cute, bookstore, future grad-student look. ATK Hairy used to excel at this. Now I wonder if they're conceding to the hair-freaks and shying away from this.
I hate to be critical, but hopefully it was constructive. Time to hit the books.
... because I like the webmaster and his enthusiasm too much but I would ask all those who read my review to take off at least 10 points if they are not into a "hair" fetish.
Nine updates this month alone feature models with hairy legs! Mind you, this still leaves 51 fairly straight updates, but the site is starting to look way too earthy for me to feel comfortable seeing it listed at a whopping 99 under my name.
Therefore to all ye who may be tempted to subscribe: if you are into body hair in general, including anal, pits, arms, legs, this site will still rate very highly with you given all its good points. The quality, the lay-out, the search engine, the updates, the friendly and helpful webmaster are all still there.
If, on the other hand, you like clean looking girls who have remained traditional by keeping their pubic hair but who shave their legs (as everyone except for hippies and women in rural Transylvania did for as long as I can remember,) then an 89 would be a more realistic rating for you these days.
This is still a pretty good score for a pretty good site, I think! And with a bit of sifting you'll still get a lot of good stuff. I just don't like to see my 99 connected with hairy legs! Ever! :-)
You've been taken over by a different breed. I sincerely wish you luck, after all lovers of hairy legs, pits, bellies, cracks, have to have a site too but there has never been a time in my lengthy life time where I have met anyone who was turned on by extreme hairiness .. except now and that's why the reference to a different breed.
The site owner of ATK Natural and Hairy tried to tell me that people having my taste were still being catered to and he/she "proved" it by stating that only 38% of recent updates catered to the extreme crowd. ONLY 38%??
This love of hair everywhere on the body is something brand new to me and does not fit my ideal of feminine beauty. So, off to "shaved!"
I hope lovers of "extreme" hair see this comment as well because it can't hurt to get new subscribers who like the niche, and I am certainly not out to undermine an otherwise fine site or to dispute their users' taste ..!
"We Are Hairy" are certainly not as prejudiced in favor of extreme hair as is ATK N&H at the moment but judging by their recent updates they are getting there.
Thank Heavens I got used to the shaved look in the meantime, otherwise I'd really be stuck for anything to subscribe to.
I am sincerely sad about the recent developments but also sincerely glad that room has been made for the fetishists in the hairy category to look at and enjoy what they like best. Still wishing the best to this site and its webmaster, I remain,
I'm taking it that Advent will read this! ;0)Now there are a quite a few different sites in the network, how about offering discounted membership on additional sites?
I am not just talking about a package deal on all sites, I'm thinking how about a sliding scale of additional discount based on the number of ATK sites you currently hold membership to?
I can see it might not be viable but I think it would be a good angle to increase membership across the sites.
After having seen that the honourable Messmer gave this site a 99 I couldn't resist and had to join it immediately. Now there's a lot of new content waiting for me to explore some of it is already downloaded and I was able to watch some of the movies they offer. This is a dream for those not afraid of hairy pussy. I did find some models also appearing on AllOver30.com and I'm quite happy with the mixture of mature and younger hairy ladies/girls.
Guess I'll have to write a review soon. The best model so far is 41 year old Carmen who knows exactly how to tease :-).
Despite a major revamp, user defined zips have still not made an appearance.
A shame, because I like most of the revamp.
A choice of full set zip sizes is an improvement, but not really what I am looking for.
I am at a loss to understand the many subscribers who downgrade a set from this site because it doesn't feature enough leg-, arm-, pit-, belly-, buttock hair!
This is one of the advantages of having a comments section now, you get to find out how your fellow users feel about a particular set or video and it sure makes me once again an outsider.
I suggested today that maybe the site should be renamed ATK Scary Hairy because more than 50% of today's 8 updates featured body hair other than the pubes. Who in tarnation would find a hairy leg exciting? Well, in this case, almost EVERYONE, it seems.
I am sure I will get the required thumbs down in the site from the body hair lovers so that my comment will disappear because the "community" disapproved of my scathing remarks. Argh, I guess that's democracy! :-) And I was being provocative and judgmental, I'm afraid, so I'll deserve being shunned!
Still .. hairy legs as a turn on? Who would have ever thunk it?
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!
