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?
Looking at the preview area, I got the impression that the site was exceptional. Yes, I am familiar with the major players like Brazzers, RealityKings, Bangbros, DDF, 21Sextury, etc. PureMature had this aura of sensuality and passion in stark contrast with the fake cries of "yeah fuck me with that huge cock" and anal piledriving that seems to fill said major players' sites.
Most of the movies' large thumbnails showed what I would call "true POV". Not that commonly referred to "POV" where a single guy does everything including holding the camera, that would be the POV of your eyes if they were coming out of the navel - that is just some dick and face closeups. No, these movies thumbnails show the whole of the girl's body, legs spread, taken at the level of the head or higher, which gives an impression of intimacy. This, and the beautiful sweet lighting.
Unfortunately the actual movies are a letdown. First the quality. The HD formats include:
* MPG 1280x720 2600Kbps, yes, actual MPEG (MPEG-PS) video streams
* MPG 1920x1080 10Mbps MPEG
* WMV 1920x1080 9Mbps VC-1
The industry has moved to AVC in .MP4 container, MPEG is way too inefficient. The MPGs at a higher bitrate and and 15% larger size show more artifacts and less definition than the WMVs. But since the movies seem to use a lot of white natural light, even the latter at 9 Mbps don't show enough definition. Video quality is definitely much worse than that on the major sites listed earlier.
Now the contents. Well, the thumbnails were misleading. The camera work is the same as everywhere else. Positioned somewhere randomly on the side, or long face and boobs closeups, or the navel POV (dick and face closeups). The "true POV" shown in thumbnails is of the accidental kind that lasts a couple of seconds when the camera is moving, like everywhere else. The thumbnails are way more exciting than the movies themselves. So they know which shooting angles to use to entice people, yet fail to use said angles in the movies? (They even photoshopped out Tanya Tate's ugly belly tramp stamp on the thumbnail, I thought she finally did something to look like the classy woman she would have looked like without.)
So the only thing that sets the movie contents apart from that on the other sites is the lack of "fuck me!" cries. Only the guy from cougarsinheat.com had enough patience to stay for more than 5 seconds on the same spot (too bad the site is dead), the rest are just ADD afflicted guys randomly moving the camera, and puremature.com is no exception.
I felt the same way when I subscribed to orgasms.xxx expecting to see... wait for it... don't laugh... female orgasms :).
I was a member a while back. It was a fun site with a lot of content for a solo site. Some good fetish stuff (a lot of variety). Really hot girl, if I remember right she's from South Africa, so she has one of those fun accents. :) [I love accents and dirty talk and she's good at both]
Website look dated, but she's on twitter and says she still updating.
I was a member a while ago and very happy. I only stopped because she was just starting and it didn't take me long to see everything that was there. That was back in 2007! Since then it's clear she's been very active and is still updating.
I follow her on twitter where I see she puts up discount codes every few months if you're interested she's @housewifekelly
Taking a look at the samples on this site, it seems like a great idea - the X-Art/Joymii etc formula of well-shot, sensitive hardcore, but featuring slightly older models - I tend to find girls in their 30s very attractive.
Just a shame that many of them seem to have fake boobs... I know many here agree with me, but we seem to be in the minority in the industry!
Vids okay but pain/butt navigation **DO NOT RECOMMEND FOR COLLECTORS**
I just came from Anilos to this site. It was night and day. Mommyblowsbest's increased focus on sex is good, but the technical side is infuriating.
Plus #1- The videos are decent. There are zipped photos, too. Pick your choice of standard/HD format when available and you can choose to stream and watch it or attempt to download it for later. Speeds are decent and quality is good, so there's that.
And that's where the good parts end. The problems come with everything else.
Bad #1- Navigation is horrible. There is no reason a paying user should have to click and scroll downwards four separate times simply to entire the "Mommy Blows Best" website he initially clicked to enter. If I want to know about your other sites I'll pursue them. I want one, maybe two clicks, to get me into the main site.
Bad#2- The system boots you off every 10 or so minutes. Get ready to type in captchas almost every time you casually browse the site and move on to the next model.
Bad #3- Download managers "work", but they can't be reliably queued. You'll be lucky to get two 720p videos downloaded before it kicks you off and changes a few letters in the address of the site so that you can't restart the download. Very irritating.
That being said, if you have no storage plans and just want to give them $20+/month as a streaming content provider then this site makes a bit more sense (still too expensive as that solution), but only up to the point where you remember Videobox and the other cheaper, more reliable, and more download-friendly big players. The MBB girls are cute, but they're not exclusive to this company. They've done other films, and other films are linked (DVDs from Evil Angel, Private, Wicked, Zero Tolerance, etc. are all linked and, I assume, visible) through the MBB website.
The scenes appear to be exclusive, but the girls themselves can be found most anywhere.
**I don't recommend if you have any intention of collecting the scenes you're interested in. It's an exercise in frustration.**
The only reason I could see putting up with the anti-download measures and constantly being forced to log back in over and over and over within two to three hours is if I planned to make the site an expensive alternative to owning a hard drive.
And even then there are better and cheaper alternatives to that.
While I was still in my third week of the subscription to this site I was greeted with a red warning page informing me that I had been "blocked from this site forever!"
There was a link if one wished to find out the details as to why one was no longer welcome but email through that link bounced (server not recognized).
I even got after Epoch to see if they could possibly find out what had happened but they never responded. I swear I did absolutely nothing illegal, I don't share passwords, I don't use proxy servers, I don't share material I download, I don't rip whole sites .. so I am still baffled as to why I was blocked. I gave up trying because I only lost ONE update (they only have one per week) so wasn't really affected all that much but it bugs me to this day!
I'm actually a member of 50plusmilfs.com and I didn't know that just recent updates were downloadable just few weeks. The reason I joined this site was just for few videos I can't download now! I don't like watch porn in streaming. So I sent an email and the reason was because of "pirates". This site is part of the Score Group and I've been a member of Scoreland and Scorevideos, and all of their materials can be downloadable.
I feel I got trapped.
So be aware before signing up for this site that you can't download most of videos.
... I just want to point out that this site's water marks are preposterously, irritatingly, monstrously huge. There is a big solid one, an inch-and-a-half high and four inches wide on the bottom right (all measurements are rough guesses) and another big but transparent one on the top left! Talk about overkill. If you hate huge water marks as much as I do, be forewarned.
I've been trying to sample this site but keep timing out. Hope this is only temporary. I can't wait for the official TBP review to come out in early December because the site itself definitely looks as if it could be right up my alley!
P.S. Just tried three more of the Nasty Czech Cash sites and can't connect to any of them. Either they have most of their sites on one server or they've gone out of business???
The "comments" section of this site is almost starting to read like a personal blog of mine. Praise, then condemnation, then praise again etc. etc. I am starting to be deeply embarrassed about the whole thing as I look back on what I wrote previously. But here it is, in a nutshell (and I hope it will also be my last comment on AO30):
I have looked high and low for a good mature site over the past few years, found some that were good but also a lot that were not so good, and now, after approximately four years, I must say that despite the perceived negatives I have bitched about on a regular basis .... models forgetting to bring enough underwear to a shoot, many models being too young for my taste, the introduction of hardcore .... this site has nevertheless turned out to be the best in its niche. For me!
I have, consistently and with ever increasing despair, checked out most mature sites but won't waste any more time looking for something better. So, I'll stop sulking over not getting my way often enough and will just accept the fact that OVERALL this site gives me what I am craving after all, even if it is not on a daily basis.
So AO30, my apologies for my wavering support. As a token of my repentance I have just re-subscribed! :-)
Not even for Tina! Judging by All Over 30's latest updates they are still on their descent into the depths of ever increasing hardcore material. The place crawls with "Ladies in Action" and "Ladies on Ladies" updates. I get that already at Videobox, when I go to AO30 I expect to see solo mature ladies stripping with a bit of masturbation thrown in. That's how I remember their golden age.
However one man's loss is another man's gain. Their new business model (and my plaintive wail here) should get them a lot of new subscribers who are always clamoring for more hardcore!
