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.
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.
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 :-).
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.
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. : - )
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?
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.
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.
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.
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!
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. :-)
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!
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.
... 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! :-)
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.
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.
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!
Hey guys, looking to see if anyone is a current member of ATK Hairy and if they have started adding any boy/girl hardcore photos or movies to the site as of yet?
I joined All Hairy because they had hardcore hairy content, but the site just doesn't stack up to the quality of ATK Hairy so I am considering joining the site once my membership to Galleria expires. I hope they have started adding hardcore as I never understood why it was never part of the site in the first place. I see they have hairy hardcore in Galleria, but would prefer not to be a member of both sites at the same time to get what I want with hairy girls.
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 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.
