Just take the tour and look at the last, let's say 10 - 14 updates. Dildos, dildos, dildos, dildos, hardcore, hardcore, hardcore. I'm sure they'll do well with that formula, apparently that's what most people want, but regrettably it is now one less site I want to subscribe to. I won't mourn when my present subscription expires. And it was such a class site, too. :-(
I was finally ready to take the step and subscribe but am being scared off because I see nothing on the join page that indicates that the financial transaction would be secure. The page itself proclaims that it is 100% secure but Firefox is silent on the subject. How does it look on other browsers? That little lock on the bottom used to be helpful.
Just got a notice that my membership had expired despite the fact that I still have almost 3 weeks to go. They weren't slow in cutting me off either! That's why I appreciate Billing Companies like Epoch and CCBill who have never made a mistake like that in connection with a cancellation. I sent KarupsOW an email and we'll see how promptly they re-instate me, if at all.
Update: I finally got a response after three emails and apparently there's a glitch with their Billing Company that affects users who signed up around Jan. 15 and later. They are working to resolve it and will add additional days to the subscription as a compensation. Review being restored to its original score.
I wonder how many lovers of mature women do not subscribe to this site because the water mark is too big, too brash and too destructive to the pictures (placed in the wrong spot). This glaring self-promotion might be tolerable on the first picture of a set but on every single pic? Webmaster, if you are looking .. I would be a subscriber if you ever decided to reduce the logo to a more modest, more unobtrusive size.
I noticed in your review that you mentioned the intrusive watermarks. See my remarks below, so thanks. Maybe one of these days the webmaster will take notice and people like me who hate their big yellow glaring logo will be able to subscribe.
I keep going back to this site time and time again, tempted to finally take the plunge and subscribe and there's always something to stop me from doing so. This time the fly in the ointment is found in their limited tour.
How the heck can you judge the quality of their videos if they offer you a "reduced quality sample" only? The end effect is that those who are interested in videos will say, "I'm going to stay clear of this site because I'm not quite sure what I'll get!"
For someone who looks forward to the daily updates and is looking for solos without dildos this would be an aggravating disappointment. Eight (for our taste) useless updates in the space of a bit more than a week would set me off, I know. :-)
The same disappointment would be felt by hardcore lovers or lovers of dildo sets when there is too long a stretch of softcore. I think a bit more mixing up of the material is still required! Hope this is taken as positive criticism because I still love this site.
No Special Discount! OOPs .. apologies to the site!
Just checked and our users are being charged the regular price of $ 29.95. Too bad, The site looked fairly promising.
In fairness to the site and for the sake of those who might not read the replies .. the site does offer a discount to this day. Something was wrong with my browser settings. My apologies for the misleading comment.
Here is how the SCORE webmaster replied to my comment below Pat's:
"We have listened to your comments and all our postings are now available for download on all our websites" but here it comes: "with the exception of HD content which is only available for 5 weeks after the day of posting."
Then later on he/she replied to Pat this way (paraphrased:) "Videos can be downloaded from all sites." Which was always the case! Question still is: since this site practically had HD contents right from the beginning (if I remember correctly) can I now go all the way back and download ALL HD videos or not????
As you can tell by my review, and by my various comments, AO30 has always been more to me than just another site. I have subscribed over and over again and even though there were periods of drought for me, there was also the odd brilliant set of pictures that compensated for the many that were just so-so, but I must say that the disillusionment is getting the better of me.
For one thing, many of the new models lately have not really been that appealing to me. As someone else wrote in connection with this subject, mature models are exceedingly hard to come by, so I can't blame the site or the photographers for this but it's the sad truth that there haven't been that many that managed to stir my blood lately. They might have if they had worn some slinky lingerie, darn it. A woman doesn't have to be beautiful to be alluring and sexy! And this brings me to my,(granted) purely subjective, disappointment with the majority of the shoots, because sets offering pretty lingerie in a reasonably drawn out strip tease (which is my niche) are exceedingly rare because most models have gotten into the modern habit of going "commando," because once that dress is off that's it! Maybe a foam rubber bra now and then but no more!
However, my biggest disappointment is with the videos. They are all marked HD, they all have the right specifications to qualify technically, but most are dark and certainly not as crisp as true HD should be. The picture when viewed in full window is frequently blurry and washed out looking, there are exceptions, of course but not too many.
I've downloaded quite a few that contain my favorite models but haven't kept a single one because, when I put them side by side with videos from Anilos or Reality Kings (and their downloadable files aren't even HD), for instance, I find them sadly inferior.
And so, once my present subscription is up, I think it will be good-bye. This time most likely for good. And somehow I feel like a traitor because I have developed an emotional attachment to this mature site over the years and feel almost protective of it.
So, on a more positive note and in order to appease my conscience let me say to all those who enjoy plain nudes, with little or no adornment (after page one of a given set), don't let my rant get to you. If lingerie isn't that important to you and if you are more into pictures than videos then AO30 is, still and all, a darn good matures site!
As an ongoing rant, I never fail to be surprised at how thinly veiled sites are getting in regards to a theme. Maybe my memory suffers, but didn't they use to try to make us believe the scenarios just a little bit? The women on this site are clearly not housewives and I doubt highly they ever will be. They don't even change the names anymore!
I don't know about anyone else, but a little bit of fantasy would be nice and since they have gotten so blatant with the lackthereof perhaps I'm in the minority. Admittedly there is a fine line between effective fantasy elements and an enormous cheese factor, so it isn't easy to do. However, could they at least try? If not, why even bother with the housewives theme? Why not just call it Pornstars Screwing Each Other?
Does anyone know if they stuck to their new business model of allowing you to download the latest updates only (see the three comments below this one) or have they gone back to their old way of doing things .. in other words allowing you to download everything in their archive? I, frankly, did not expect them to last longer than a couple of months after the change but see that their site link is still up. Any present members?
I keep going back to this site over and over again because they appear to be the only quality site when it comes to mature women, but I invariably get frustrated because there are so few updates that appeal to lovers of really mature women over forty or to lovers of soft core. Too many dildos, too many b/g videos and picture sets have pushed their way into this site which has cheapened it in my eyes. No doubt, some will subscribe now who normally wouldn't have because of the introduction of harder material. (see comment below) But I can't get rid of the feeling that it was a better site before. Purely subjective and personal!
I just had a look at August's updates through this site's tour and don't see one single older woman as advertised in the site's banner? Or maybe modern miracle cosmetics make mature women look as if they are in their twenties? Doesn't this defeat the purpose of a "mature" "older" site, though by robbing it of its uniqueness. After all take away the mature look and you will find other sites just like this one all over the place. Just a comment, this IS a good site but I no longer see "older" in it. I hope August's updates are a fluke.
I have some good news about this companies policy in regards to downloads. I don't exactly know when this happened but it has to be quite recent. All I know is that you can now download all of their library as opposed to only their most recent videos.
I read somewhere that this is for all of their sites but I can only confirm it for this one and 60 plus.
Updates are below par for ATK sites and just as unimaginative as the later Aunt Judys/Older Women ones. You may take the unimaginative with a grain of salt. Not everyone has my taste.
There are also careless mistakes like labeling a video of a 33 year old woman as that of a 21 year old MILF.** Okay, that is nit picking but still indicates to me that not enough care is taken when it comes to descriptions etc.
** Added 5pm ADT: Just found out, after downloading said video, that it does not deserve the label HD. Picture may be 1080p but is way too soft and blurry.
Streaming no longer works even though you can still click on it but it will do nothing but buffer forever without going anywhere. This is not a glitch but was done on purpose in order to help increase server download speed.
Download managers are forbidden.
Site has potential. I love how they have changed it to the same look as that of all the other ATK sites. I love that videos are now available at 1080p, but seeing that all the old AJ/OW videos were technically inferior and the updates of videos are relatively slow compared to other mature sites I would give this "new site" a few months before I joined, to allow them to build up a reasonable inventory. I am sure, given ATKs record, that it will be an excellent site eventually.
I'd love to join this site and the network
it belongs to I'm just not sure how much is
downloadable. Any recent members who have
this info? I wont join a network that
only has streaming video. If I'm paying
for it I want to be able to keep it. Also
if the videos are good I'll be sure to join
the site again in the future. I think most
people using Pornusers feel the same about
streaming as opposed to downloadable video.
From http://www.nolimitweb.nl/terms.htm :
"The occurrence of complaints from Customers, inquiries, Credit Backs or Charge Backs with respect to the Client's program or service may be cause for termination of this Agreement if such events occur with unacceptable frequency as determined in the sole discretion of the Company. In addition, The Company reserves the right to charge the Client reasonable fees and recover its expenses on account of Credit Backs, Charge Backs, or excessive customer inquiries." - have anybody seen anything like this? These guys seem to reserve the right to charge members as much as they wish, at their sole discretion.
I don't mean to single out this site more than any other, but am I the only one who is tired of porn sites claiming that, unlike all the others, their reality site is actually real? They all sell it well at the beginning by saying, "We were tired of all those fake sites ourselves, so we decided to make something different." Then, when you head into the tour pages you immediately notice that the supposed "wife" in one of the episodes is a known pornstar!
It's possible no one else expects much integrity from a porn site and is very happy to just be provided with naked people having fun with their private parts, but I find this less than honest when presenting something where you have people paying money to view your product. Case in point: On the main page for this site we have two wives, one named Gianna, who just happens to be Gianna Michaels, pornstar extraordinaire! Maybe I'd let it slide if it was her actual husband, but from what I can tell she isn't even married!
Anyway, I'm probably making too much of this, but when you read, "Wintess Real Couples Try Swapping For The First Time!" you usually figure there's at least a small chance you'll witness real couples try swapping for the first time. Or is it just me? ;)
I have checked the sign-up page for this site since I was going to give it a shot, but the discount that is supposed to drop a significant chunk from the price doesn't work. It takes you directly to a "trial subscription" page with a 1.95 price. I'm looking for the full subscription discount here.
