-Bill through Epoch.
-Inexpensive three day trial option.
-A lot of genuine, never seen before amateurs that get very explicit.
-You get to download only 3 videos while a member. You also get three dvd's in the mail.
Not much content even for a trial membership.
-No choice of which dvd's you get in the mail.
-Downloadable videos can be very low quality. I downloaded two videos at 320x240, the third was 720x480. Three is all you get, if you don't like waht is offered today, tough.
-The photosets are screencaps, many of very low quality. Not zipdownloadable either. The sets are tiny, usually less than 20 photos, and the poses are identical from one set to the next. It is impossible to tell the sets apart.
-Zero model information. Most don't even have a first name.
-A lot of garter belts with nylons. I was tired of this look even when it was in vogue years ago.
-No support for download managers.
The site is realistically just an infomercial for the dvds. As such it is really hard to review its entertainment value. In a nutshell, there just isn't much here except a constant sales pitch to spend, spend, spend what can come out to really big bucks. To start with, the models are mostly true amateurs with all the plusses and minuses that they bring. A fresh face, a natural approach, no phoniness. But, you also get a BIG variation in attractiveness. The models are all over the place-some truly great, many you would never care to watch. Both the clips and the dvd's are whole video, not split into sections, so finding what interests you means you must fast forward a lot. Picture yourself fast forwarding one hours worth of video to find something in the second hour. Both the clips and the dvd's are really infomercials too. All you get are clips pieced together that are just too short to truly get hot. In this they are similar to quickie preview videos that you often see on sites webpages. The photos are almost all very low quality screencaps that you would never save and they are not even zipdownloadable. In many of the photos, and this is true of many videos, the colors are oversaturated. Further, the use of background often leads a lot to be desired. A pale model, wearing white or light colors against a white background is not acceptable. I would even call it amateurish photography or videography. There is no option to stream or download in clips and this is a minus here in that you find dozens of models in a one or two hour video. There is no search engine for the downloadable clips either. When your focus is on selling videos, I guess you don't spend much time or effort on the quality of the site. The videos are mostly $15 for a one hour video, with a $5 fee for shipping. There are discounts for large purchases, but would you spend $50 for five videos that total between 5 to 10 hours for the whole group? $450 for 50 dvds-50 to 100 hours? Or the cheapest price per video of $800 for 100 to 200 hours? Not me, not even for one video of one to two hours for a bottom line of $20. Websites are much cheaper and you don't have to store dvds. Sorry, my answer has to be don't even bother with the three day trial for $6.

Hundreds of never-before-seen girls in explicit poses
Authentic amateur feel to many of the girls and scenes
DVDs are of exceptionally high quality and very cheaply priced
Instant downloads are overpriced
Quality of online video clips and downloads not the best
Awkward navigation and lack of model index
Absence of "community" features such as a blog or user forum
The real purpose of this site is to be able to preview DVDs produced by G.D. Douglass, either in full or in part, and given that this is the case, and given the excellent quality and low prices of the DVDs, the value of membership is excellent. The models are for the most part non-professional porners, and there is a real "amateur" feel (in the most positive sense of the word) to most of the videos. Many of the older videos feature "everyday women" in retro/conservative outfits and hairstyles, and this is something that I haven't found elsewhere (i.e., except in old videos and photos of poor quality). With the videos priced currently at $10 apiece (even less if you buy in bulk), the entire package of site-as-preview and DVD ordering is really a good deal, if solo amateur girls is your thing.
G.D. himself is more grandfatherly than "nasty" in his approach to the girls. This aspect of the videos may irritate some as being "too nice and respectful." However my guess is that this is part of the key to his success in recruiting young women who are doing porn for the first time.
I do wonder about the future of this site and of Douglass' enterprise as a whole. The more recent videos often feature porn actresses that can be seen in dozens of other places, and even some of the unrecognizable faces in the newer material "look" like typical porn fodder. Douglass himself is clearly a man "of a certain age" and one wonders if there is some sort of succession plan in place that would involve him turning over at least the on-camera interaction to a younger man who would be capable of creating at least a modicum of sexual tension with the models: This is what I think is needed for the long-term survival of his video empire.
At any rate, there can be no doubt that, in terms of what he does, G.D. Douglass is a Master of Erotica.
