Tia’s website is a great example of being a website where you join for the girl, not just for the content.
She's a gorgeous South Korean with a beautiful complexion, athletic figure and large, fake boobs. She covers every fetish I can think of; solo, lesbian, blowjobs, deepthroat, hardcore, DP, gangbangs and bondage.
There's currently 197 videos (including webcams), and 234 galleries of varying size and quality (to the extreme) but probably averaging around 100-150 pictures. In addition there’s a webcam archive (35 videos, approximately an hour long, but these also appear along with video updates), an online store, short bio, Tia’s wishlist, Diary and VOD from AEBN.
Content is separated into three main categories; Photos, Movies and Recorded Webcam Shows. In each category you can sort by date, popularity or by title. There is a mixture of talent both male and female. There's also a few Fan Fucks which appear to be genuine.
There are 20 updates per page with a thumbnail, the title, running time, and when the update was added. When you hover over the thumbnail, it animates as a slideshow previewing the update – the problem with this is that if it’s a long video, only the first half of the video appears in what is presumably an automatically generated preview so it often doesn’t really give much of a taster of what the video’s like. All content is watermarked, often twice with Tia Ling’s watermark, and the watermark of the site the video was shot for (eg, Evil Angel). On lower-quality content this is quite intrusive.
Clicking into the update, you get the option to rate out of five, leave a comment, add to favourites or suggest category keyword tags. Not many people rate or comment, and I’m not sure what the ‘suggest category keyword tags’ feature is, but this too doesn’t seem to be utilised.
On video updates, you can watch a Flash version on the site, or download an MP4. The Flash video doesn’t allow you to skip to any point while the video is loading (as Youtube would). This is a bit annoying as you can’t really use the Flash video as a preview prior to downloading. MP4 is the only format available on the site, which of all the formats is probably the best. There are no other formats available, and there is no indication of file size.
Be warned; some videos have a huge file size. The latest update had a 790mb file size with no option to download lower quality videos. Download speeds seem good, though, and there’s no apparent download limit. The average file size is probably around 400mb, though, but the trend lately does seem to be weighted towards larger file sizes.
Tech specs for the videos vary as most are not exclusive to Tia, but newer updates are 1280x720 and older ones being 720x480. Cam shows, which although appear archived on a separate page, are also mixed in with the other videos. The file size for these is around 40mb, and are 320x236 with the video being very juddery.
Like the video content, the quality of galleries varies dramatically. The average gallery size is probably around 100, but there’s galleries with fewer than 20 images, and others with over 300.
The biggest complaint I have, and it’s quite a big one, is that galleries comprising of screenshots are mixed in with photoshoots resulting in a huge gulf of difference in terms of quality. Ranging from 640px on the longest side to 1280px, nothing blew me away quality-wise, and frankly the majority was disappointing. This is definitely a video site, although there are nice galleries if you look hard enough.
Navigation is generally OK, although it definitely can do with refining. There is a search box at the top of each page, with a category drop-down. The only category listed is ‘stockings’. It’s a shame you can’t leave the search box blank and select a category (eg, Blowjobs) to see all blowjob videos. I suspect the functionality is there, it just hasn’t been set up.
The update schedule is generally once a week. All content is dated and forthcoming updates are displayed on the homepage with screenshot and when it will be appearing on the site. Although the site has a history of regular updates and all content is updating, there haven’t been any updates since the end of November, with the next update due in early January.
Tia Ling is a natural talent and I’m a huge fan. She is confident, exciting and is incredible versatile. None of her content is formulaic - for example her BJs range from slow and sensual to a full-on face fuck. Her site is a dumping ground for her content, so although many of the videos are incredible, the content is a huge mix. Some exclusive, while a lot of it isn't.

01-02-1207:33am (Update History) Reason: Changed review on the basis of negative trust rating left on my profile
- Tia is very hot with athletic body, large (fake) boobs and a very pretty face
- Good mix of content - movies and pictures
- Lots of niches and fetishes catered for - B/G, G/G, blowjobs to anal with anything in between, gangbangs and orgies
- Fairly good update schedule for Tia, and also updates for other sites in the network including Asian Sex Club, Tera Lee, All Asians, Filipino Fuck etc
- Navigation is pretty good and you can sort updates in different orders (by date, title etc)
- Members can now rate updates and leave comments
- Not all exclusive content which means quality is inconsistent, ranging from good quality photos to screengrabs from movies
- Video quality also varies, and you can't tell filesize until you download (it does have running time on the update though)
- Not much in the way of introduction for videos/updates, but not a big problem as you can view a Flash video before downloading
This is a pretty large, comprehensive website, and caters for possibly the largest range of niches and fetishes that I know of from a solo website.
Tia Ling seems to try her hand at pretty much anything. There's inter-racial, blowjobs, footjobs, handjobs, masturbation, orgies, gang bangs (one of which she gets 10 facials), anal and also domination if that's your thing.
This is Tia's website so she appears in pretty much all updates, but there's a few guest stars, plus daily updates from the network her site is a member of. Honestly not many were particularly of interest to me as I'm generally a fan of solo sites, but if you like Asians, Filipinos etc, then this is obviously a huge selling point.
Tia is a constant in updates (obviously), but there's a lot of different male talent (and female talent too, of course). There are a few solo videos of Tia, also 'fan fucks' which frankly I'm always a bit cynical about, but it's obviously a different guy and adds to the variety. I know a lot of people don't like seeing the same guy in every video, so the fact there's a lot of guys at Tia's disposal is obviously a big plus point in that respect.
Navigation is pretty much as you'd expect. It has vastly improved since I was a member 4 months ago, and all content is downloadable. You can download WMV files (most seemed to be in the region of 100-500mb) and ZIPs of photos. I am normally only a member of one website at a time, and I cannot afford to stay a member of every website that doesn't let you save content, so it's really good this has been changed.
The updates are displayed as simple thumbnails with the title of the update, a 5-star rating which you can contribute to, and how long the video is/how many photos there are. Future updates also appear at the top of the page to give you an idea of what's to come.
If you hover over the thumbnail, it scrolls through 5-or-so different screenshots/images to give you an idea of what is in the update. The only problem I've found is that if the video is long, it only shows scenes from the first half of the video, so it doesn't necessarily give an accurate representation of what's in the video. But there's a Flash version of the video online, so no big issue.
When you click on the thumbnail you have the choice of playing a Flash version of the video or downloading a WMV (in the case of videos), or browse through thumbnails or downloading a ZIP (in the case of photos).
The Flash version of the video is good in that you can click anywhere on the timeline while it's loading and it will skip to that point. It's like Youtube in that you don't have to wait for the entire video to load before being able to skip to the middle and end to see what the video's like.
Most of the recent videos are excellent quality, with older videos being more inconsistent as I think some are from other websites that Tia's done shoots for.
Photo-wise, you can browse thumbnails, view them in a slideshow or download a zip. There are watermarks, but generally not too intrusive on the larger images, but obviously are proportionally larger on the poorer quality images.
Image-wise it's a mix. The proper photos are really good quality, very sharp and very clear. These are very good. Gallery size ranges from 40-200 photos.
But there are a fair few galleries comprising of screenshots - these range from adequate to poor in quality. I personally think updates like this could do with being separated from the main photo updates and maybe clumped with the actual video updates. It's not a huge issue to me as the good quality photos are there, and the good quality videos are there, it's just the screenshots kinda dilute the photo offerings somehow.
Other features include the ability to sort updates by Most Recent, Most Popular (as scored by members) and by Title Name. You can also add tags to updates, but I'm not sure if this means you can then view by tags.
There is a search box at the top where you can type in the name of an update etc, but also select the category (Lesbian, BJ etc), and the site (network-wide or Tia's site). Unfortunately leaving this blank and selecting 'Blowjobs' and 'Tia Ling' doesn't seem to display all Tia's blowjobs, but admittedly this could be a work in progress (hope it is, as it will really improve navigation).
Finally, there's a basic bio with her vital stats plus turn ons/offs, store (autographed photos of Tia etc), Tia's wishlist (from suitcases to lingerie!) and FAQs which touches on the essential things like how to cancel membership etc.
'Live Webcam Shows' is currently unclickable and coming soon, so hopefully that will be live soon (will update if it does become available).
Tia's website is really good. It has a huge mix of niches, lots of large videos and lots of photos. Navigation is FAR improved but could be slightly more refined here-and-there, plus I think keeping the poor quality screenshots separate would be another positive step to take. Well worth joining!

If you like Pictures and Lesbians sites. It would be ok. Tia Ling is favourite, site is a bit of a let down value wise.
Tia Ling is Fantastic. Huge Fan. However the site needs a lot of work and was rather disappointed at the quality and quantity of Material. No Downloads available. Streaming content Only. Limited content. I was under the impression there would be more from her Movies. Hopefully in the future, there will be a bigger investment on this site. Navigation of site needs work. Perhaps a bundle packagage with other stars for a better customer value.
Don't see the value for the money. Reduce cost.
More bonus sites, add Download tabs, Include more scenes.

This is the site of Tia Ling who according to her bio here is a 34 year old Korean glamour model/porn star although judging by her natural sounding American accent I would guess she’s not spent much time in Korea, in fact a quick search of the iafd database puts her at 2 years older and born in Cleveland, OH. She’s 5 ft 1 inch tall and sports a pair of fake 34c tits and has a nice fit toned body for her age and a tribal tattoo on her lower back. I’m not quite sure what the deal is if you join her site directly, the join page here shows $5 less than I paid to join 88 Square but I see no mention of bonus sites in her tour area.
There’s a decent amount of content here for a solo model site with currently 174 photo sets and 112 videos dating back to June 2007 and according to the dates it looks like we’re still seeing one new update per week. Only problem is it seems the site does everything it can to try and restrict paying members from actually downloading anything with streaming only videos and no zips for the photos and even the right click has been disabled when you view the photos online using the flash photo viewer of slide show facility. The one piece of good news here is that I found I was able to easily grab the photo sets using Down Them All in Firefox. The photo and video sections are basically categorised into three sections, Solo, Action and Fetish, the action featuring both lesbian and boy girl hardcore, and the fetish section featuring some foot fetish, spanking and bondage stuff.
There’s also a live show section for where you can view previous live cam shows. The last show is showing as 197 days ago with no indication of any more shows forthcoming. Other features include a diary which still looks to be updated each month and a store where you can purchase various Tia souvenirs such as autographed photos. Overall as a standalone site I couldn’t really recommend it with the lack of download options and even as a free bonus site a couple of hours was enough to find anything of interest to me.
