Hairy Hippie Girls are kind of the selling point here. Lots of natural, often unshaven, women with long hair, tie-dyed dresses.
There is a certain campy, B-movie quality to everything they do. In a away this separates them from mainstream porn, and I found that appealing.
Some incredible amateur models from the Northwest US region. If you are really into the Seattle/Portland scenes, this is probably one of the best samplings of the region. Something about this type of porn just screams "indie-alt-porn."
Major focus on the women. Most of the time this is a result of the POV style of most of Rodney's work.
You'll be surprised how many famous names show up in his videos.
The lesbian videos here, which comprise maybe 20-35% of the stock, are some of the most realistic you will ever see and on par with what you find at sites like We Are Hairy and Abby Winters, not necessarily softcore, but definitely devoid of any testosteronal influences(just one dildo instead of a whole toolbox).
Since they don't always wear bras, gravity is a lot harsher on some of the models than others. It can be a little disconcerting seeing the boobs of a fifty year old woman on a twenty year old.
A lot of the models are real hippie chicks with the hygiene and grooming practices that are stereotypical of hippies. With all that hair, sometimes you can actually smell the girls through your computer monitor. Seems like maybe 1 out of every 6 or 7 is just a little too "hippie" for my tastes.
The B-movie quality I mentioned is great sometimes, but other times it is that quality because Rodney Moore doesn't know the first thing about lighting a scene. About half of all the videos will either be too dark and grainy, or so brightly lit it starts to wash out all the details, bushes get all pixelated, etc. So expect about 50% of the movies to be low-quality.
POV style only works if a) you can hold the camera steady and b) you have the light to do so. Rodney often only has one of these.
Yes, the video quality sucks, and there is no consistency in terms of the the formats or camerawork. Rodney Moore has ruined many shoots with what was an otherwise super hot chick that just couldn't be seen because he likes to shoot in rooms with natural light. This means every time he shoots something on one side of the room that is brightly lit, the other half of the room looks like it is shrouded in shadow. This throws off his white balance and causes a lot of wash. The reason I keep mentioning this is because on an old CRT monitor this wasn't that noticeable. On a nice new HD LED monitor, this can look like shit. Yeah, I said it.
So why even consider it? Well, probably for the same reason you still like to look up the girls from the 1970s on the PLAYBOY site. It's partly nostalgic for some of us who chased those hairy hippie girls all through college. And some of us get tired of seeing the ultra-professional, ultra-glammed-up porn. And maybe, as a US citizen, I would like to know that we have our own Abby Winters-esque models here in the states. Then there is just the overall feel of this site. Much like Suicide Girls, this site just screams "Pacific Northwest." For those of you who don't know, this area of the US is sort of a Mecca for the indie/alt music scene (the locals get a little miffed about this, but they are always associated with "grunge").
Yes, there are probably more cons than pros with this site. But the pros make up for it, I think. The fact of the matter is that if you are into chicks like these, vid quality is not going to be as big an issue to you. Some of these videos are probably over ten years old at this point and this borders on a retro site. As such it is a lot like getting a membership to a classic porn site. You can't fault the standards of the time for the current video quality, you just have to accept it.
Who should join this site? If you are into hairy, hirsute women, then you want to check this out for at least a month. If you are into amateurs, and particularly younger girls in their early twenties, then you want to check this out. If you like POV, and all of the above, then you want to check this out. And, if you like the smell of patchouli mixed with the aromatic flavors of a wet bush, then you will want to check this site out (you won't really smell it, but you will think you do, so what's the diff).
Will you stay member here indefinitely? probably not. A month or two will suffice for most. The updates aren't necessarily updates, just re-posting of older stuff most of the time. I don't think there is any actual new content coming from him, but I may be wrong. This is more or less an archive site. What's really scary is just how many videos there are in this archive, and how many Rodney himself was in. The guy has got to be rivaling the likes of Ron Jeremy, and he did it in about a third of the time.

-Bill through CCBill
-No download limit
-Very large site. TBP review states 1375 video scenes as of May.
-Models are a nice mix of races, ages, body types, you name it. He even has Bridgett the Midget.
-Excellent attempt to modernize the site by remastering the older videos and replacing the older ones. They are presently updating almost daily. In June there were 21 updates in 30 days. There are still many hundreds left to do.
-Works well with download manager. Fast enough downloads and I was able to do six at a time. I did about my max on Verizon Fios, 2.4MB.
-Rodney loves women with pubic hair. For me this is a turn on.
-Rodney loves women, PERIOD. He compliments them, eats their pussies, and generally does whatever it takes to make a scene work for both parties. He makes his partner feel appreciated with a refreshingly respectful approach.
-Nearly every scene is a creative scenario. Some are well done, many are not. Rodney has a sense of humor that is often very effective
-Prechecked cross sales when you sign up
-Many videos not yet upgraded and are poor quality Quicktime and not downloadable. I could not find specs for these, but they are not watchable. Grainy and tiny, my best guess is something like 240x120 or something along those lines.
-Quite a few videos are not yet downloadable as a whole video, only as MPEG1 clips,barely watchable. No specs for these but are something like 480x320.
-The most recent videos are nowhere near HD at 960x540, 2643 kbps.
-Oldest photos are very poor quality screenshots. These are not zip downloadable either.
-The most recent photo sets are barely acceptable at 1280x800, zip downloadable. Small sets of under 30 photos.
-Confusing navigation. If you want a particular model, she may have a video but you may not see her name listed. Also, some models have inconsistent spelling. The model directory has her as Jynx Maze, but the welcome page has Jinx Maze.
-Rodney loves to worship women’s feet. Not my fetish.
Rodney Moore specializes in videos where his Rodney blasts are on his partner’s face. He also loves to use women who sport hairy bush. Trimmed, untrimmed, he loves them all. If these are not to your taste, this site is not for you.
If you went to a video store in the 90’s or even the 00”s, Rodney’s videos were to be found in large numbers. He had several different series, such as Horny Hairy Girls, Monster Facials and She Swallows. The content is similar in all the videos. He uses a scenario to start the scene. In one he is buying a house and gets the real estate agent to have sex with him. Or, a woman answers an ad for something he is selling. Sometimes he tries to use humor, like finding a woman in the closet or in a garbage can. In total he has more than 1500 scenes, so there is a lot of material that he could eventually post on his site.
In most scenes, there is a lot of foot worship, pussy eating etc. He is very complimentary to the women, telling them how beautiful they are and how much he wants to have sex with them. Many of the models are very attractive, even beautiful, but most are average or a bit better looking. No fake breasts, almost zero tattoos, light or no makeup, they appear to be normal everyday women who appear to be doing just this one video. No stripper clothes or slutty outfits, what you see are women wearing everyday clothes that they take off. There are also some softcore videos of public or semipublic nudity and some that focus on teasing up the skirt or showing their rack, butt or pussy. Nice. Some of the women are porn stars, like one of Sylvia Saint, but most are not. There is vaginal, anal and of course blowjobs. Some of the vaginal is missionary and not the usual way that vaginal is shown.
What is frustrating about the site is that the material is old. The cameras were not the best, so even remastering the videos does not guarantee excellent results. If the original is just ok or poor, the best you can do to improve it is nowhere near HD. Many videos are of very poor quality and cannot be downloaded. That is a shame, as I got the feeling of being tantalized with material that I can’t enjoy. Some of it looks very interesting, but non downloadable Quicktime? Many videos are only slightly better, but can be downloaded only as clips. If you want HD, you wont find it on this site. Even the best videos on the site should be watched on a computer screen, but not on an HD TV.
I have read many of us say that pregonzo video was a lot better. Many have stated that they liked some degree of pubic hair. It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that the past was better just because we don’t care for much of today’s porn. The truth is, when I saw these videos I did feel that these were better than what we get today; it is not just nostalgia. It is not that our memory plays tricks on us. If you liked Rodney then, you will like him today as well.

- Exclusive content of TS models featuring full solo masturbation.
- A good mix of ethnicities as far as white, ebony, and latinas go. Small asian mix.
- Updates are alright at 2 new scenes a week plus an old video is remastered.
- Newer video scenes are available in full scene downloads while older ones are only available in clips. New videos are in WMV format at 796 X 488, ~1,500 kbps. MPEG and MOV format available for most older movies. There are varying resolutions and bitrates with older videos, 640 X 480 or lower with average of 1,500 kbps.
- There are photo shoots and video stills available, 1200 X 800 is the highest I've seen. Most are smaller. They are not large sets but are available in zip format.
- Model Index which displays models A-Z plus the extra sites content as well. This includes a small mix of BJ scenes, hardcore, and domination.
- There is forum for input but it's outdated. However, it is active.
- Upcoming updates are shown in advance.
- Fair price.
- Site design is just downright amateur. While it's easy to navigate, it just looks bad. After all this time the site has been around, I'm surprised that the owner has not hired a designer to help out in this.
- Site updates are not dated. Would be nice to see dated updates for the new ones and ones to come.
- This is a video site, while photo sets are offered, they are extremely lacking in both size, value, and content.
- Bonus sites are listed as seperate sites but these are just different sites with the same content found on the main Shemale Strokers page. Meaning, all the content within these 'bonus' sites can be found on the main site.
- While the videos vary in appearance, even the newest ones could be better in terms of quality of clarity. These are some of the best shot videos I've seen, but the actual clarity should be better this day and age.
- Older videos are only available in clips.
Shemale Strokers is shot and maintained by videographer Sammy Mancini. He provides great technical camera work and often brings some innovativeness to solo masturbation scenes that can get stale quickly. While you do get quite a few videos of models that appear to be doing the scene as 'just another day at the job', there are so many extremely sexy scenes which makes the site a wonder.
The innovativeness that is brought to the forefront can usually be seen in the ending cumshot. While the majority of sites with solo masturbation usually just have the model cum on their stomach and on to the floor, Sammy usually finds great ways to change this up. For example, the models will usually cum on their stomach but he also provides footage of them cumming in to their hand, on to mirrors, on to black surfaces, and even on their own faces. Plus, he even did some scenes where when the model cums, you get a shot of the cumshot with a look at their face as well in split screen to see how much the models were in ecstacy. It's these crafty shots that make the site so wonderful in my opinion.
While the actual location of the scenes are pretty much standard being a bed or a couch. It's quite obvious Sammy travels to the locations to get the footage. So, I'd say plenty are within the models' own home which I think may create a comfort which leads to extremely hot scenes. The scenes usually start with a short interview, undress, then masturbation to cumshot. Just like most standard solo masturbation sites (including sites with models that are genetical women as well), you do get the models that lay there with no emotion. However, in all honesty, I'd say the majority here are quite in to the scenes. You can truly feel some passion and tell they were quite horny during the scenes.
The make-up and dress is usually quite casual in manner. There is not an extreme amount of glamour within the scenes with a decent amount of make-up (which is to be expected in TS sites). But, nothing too overboard. All-in-all, I see these videos as Sammy going to the models house and them dressed as they would to go out shopping or to the mall. It's actually quite refreshing to see this attire when it comes to TS models because a lot of sites like to glamourize their TS shoots.
The actual models are mostly North American but Sammy provides a lot of variance. Another refreshing aspect is the fact that a lot of Ebony TS models are represented here which I don't get to see very much unless wanting to join a specialized ebony TS Site. Overall, there is a great mix to the model index in terms of ethnicties.
Overall, the site is a winner. Unfortunantly, the actual clarity of the footage provided is what is holding the site back from being in the 90's for me. While the videos are not entirely bad and I found only a selected few to be unwatchable, they are just not up to date in the standards. But, the camera work is beautiful and the reformatted ones look better. Recommended.

- Semi regular updates
- Well know stars as well as amatuers
- Many niches (facials, BBW, bushes, storylines, etc...)
- Multiple links to same scenes. You may download same scenes twice.
- dont have complete scene downloads, just clips.
- Older scenes only have quicktime format and unable to download without quicktime pro.
- The web page format needs to be redesigned
A website with good to great content for people who like different things. Unfortunatley the navigation and web design take away from it severly. These are fixable issues but apparently have been issues for a number of years.

i have been a member of shemalestrokers.com a long time now and will continue to be for a long time.First off this site is more of a solo site it does have some hardcore stuff but not alot.Now the videos on the site are great.Sammy really takes pride with the camera in his hand he gets good angles he does nt go overboard with the closeups like some sites do and always captures a good cumshot.Just about all the scenes end in a cumshot which is extremely important to us shemale fans.Now im looking at my collection and the dimensons and bitrates of the wmv scenes can vary ranging from 640X480 to about 900x506 as one of my scenes is.The bitrates range to from 1200K up but generally the quality is very good with some of the older scenes being average,but sammy is making a effort to reformat these scenes which is good to see.There is one big problem with the newer wmv videos some of them can not be fast fowarded for some reason now i have this problem some people said in the forum its due to having a old computer but im not sure and im not the only person with this probem its a ongoing issue thats been mentioned countless times,as a result i use the quicktime clips but im fine with them there quality is good .Now im not sure of the dimensions or bitrates of the quicktime clips but they are great looking and can be viewed and full screen nicely.One thing i like about the video work is its never the same sammy always keeps in interesting sometimes you get a short interview with the girl telling us about herself,you get models talking dirty to the camera which is a real turn on theres dildo work with a neat dildo seat which i like.The cumshots are always taken in different ways sometimes the girls cum on spoons,cups or plates and lick it off or even cum on there own faces its aways getting mixed up,its simply not a repeat formula that you get with some sites.The pic sets are kinda small usually about 50 or so and pics are just stills taken for the videos but they are good quality there is a zip file option to which is good.The site updates twice a week which means 2 new girls a week with a random reformated older clip appearing whenever.This may be a small update compared to other sites but the quality of the camera work more than makes up for this im happy with there update policy.So all in all shemalestrokers is a solid site the video work is excellent(with some issues that need to be adressed)all scenes end with cumshots which is important to us shemale fans it has a big model data base that will keep new members busy and hard.I recommend this site to anyone its a gem so check it out

Rodney Moore is content in need of a website: a complete site redesign is in order. The vast majority of the content is in MOV with no easy way of being downloaded (they actually recommends you hunt through your temp. internet files). Newer content allows WMV or MPG downloads. Some sets do have screenshots and many sets have matching photos – but zip files are available only to the newest content.
Granted, there is a ton of content – some dating back to 1997 – over 1000 models. Everything is excerpts from DVDs Rodney Moore has produced. Problem is, often times much of the DVD isn’t available and a full, single file download is out of the question. Video quality & resolution is all over the place – some of the newest is HD – most is small; you usually get professional lighting mixed with amateur cameras with lens vignetting – it is almost bipolar.
A lot of time has been spent on categorizing, there is a good model index and if you just want highlights of a video – this site is for you. However there’s no search engine of any sort.
It pains me not to be able to rank this site high – the content is truly great: outstanding cumshots, a diverse group of models from pure amateurs to seasoned professionals and every body type, lesbian sex, boy/girl sex, et cetera. Production values aside – Rodney Moore has an eye for interesting porn and models. Simply though, the learning curve for the site navigation is so steep that I’d rather rent his DVDs than deal with this site.

.highly sexually charged
.2 speeds download, 1 streaming
.hundreds of original episodes
.girls love what they do
.Rodney is busiest (and luckiest) man walking
.sexual sections are as large as some entire websites
.regular updates, easy access and navigation
.maybe too much BJ sometimes.
Hefner and Christopher have nothing on Rodney. This man seems to handle each episode personally whether from behind or in front of the camera. His mark is on everything. A sexual pervert second to none. That was a compliment.
