This is or, more precisely, was the official site of UK glamour model Melissa Debling. Melissa Debling is blonde, petite, curvy and has a phenomenal rack and no tattoos. She has appeared in UK menís Magazines like Nuts and Zoo, on the page 3 of tabloids and also on UK glamour websites like Only All Sites. I was reluctant to join this site after my experience with Official Lindsey Strutt from the same company but her looks made me take the plunge.
The type of content is very similar to that on Official Lindsey Strutt: very tame posing up to topless in casual clothes (almost no pantyhose, thank God). Videos are somewhat better here even though a bit repetitive. You get almost every video twice: as BTS of the photo shoot and as a tease segment. The only difference between the two is that in the tease segment the model looks at the camera while in the BTS she looks at the photographer. Melissa Debling seemed slightly more involved with the site, periodically replying to forum messages and posting short blog entries regularly but Iím pretty sure that has stopped.
Itís unclear whether this site will stay much longer online. Melissa Debling has for some time been warning on Tweeter not to join this site anymore. Even though, I see the site is now offering 3 and 6 month memberships. Free tour shows photo sets that have been released since my membership expired, but it seems unlikely they have enough new material to fill the next 6 months if the model is no longer shooting with them. You do get access to other sites from the company, which I didnít get when I was a member.
I honestly donít know whatís wrong with this company that keeps closing its sites after just a few months life. I was a member of a site from this company that closed without any explanation shortly after I knew about it as a new listing on TBP. Several sites from them are no longer accepting memberships or are plain and simply deleted after a very short time online.

I came across this site because of the new listings section at The Best Porn. I had never heard of the model and I knew almost nothing about the glamour business in the UK but I liked her looks and decided to take the plunge.
I like the photos. She basically wears either bikinis by the pool or bra and panties indoors. Nice, simple sexy lingerie and none of those pantyhose that seem to be so popular in UK erotica. I cannot say the pictures are technically excellent (Iím not very savvy but I felt there were some lighting issues and too many similar shoots within a set) but, for a change, I enjoyed watching a beautiful woman with a perfect bust posing in sexy lingerie that didnít make her look too young or too slutty. I donít mind that she never shows anything below the waist but this could be an issue for some.
Videos, on the other hand, offer little. Leaving aside the fact that there are endless combinations of format (flv, mov, wmv - a couple of them are even offered compressed in RAR format for unknown reasons-), resolution (from as low as 384x288 up to 1920x1080 -but letterboxed from an original in 4:3 format also for unknown reasons-) and bitrate (from FLVs at 200 kbps to MOVs at 30,000 kbps), the ones I managed to play without stuttering on my not-so-old computer were basically 1 minute BTS clips with superimposed music. I believe Iíd have gotten a better impression had the site offered no videos at all.
As for the interaction, I came out of the site knowing as little about Lindsey Strutt as before. An ďAbout MeĒ section explaining who she is would have been welcome for those who are not in the UK. For instance, the diary section had some pictures of her with a bunch of soldiers. Turns out Lindsey Strutt went to Iraq to visit the troops as a spokesperson for UK magazine Nuts but I didnít learn about it here. Thereís no point in offering so many interaction options in the siteís menu (webcam chat, diary, message board) if you then make a half-hearted attempt at it or have an ďunder constructionĒ sign for a year.
In the end, looking at this and the other site from the same company I checked (Official Staci Noblett, no longer listed here), Iím under the impression the models are more interested in posing for magazines than working for their own site. At least for me, itís not worth staying a member of a solo site if I donít feel the girl is a bit involved in it. There are other good looking UK models Iíd never heard of who have a site with this company but, given the precedents, Iím afraid Iíll have to pass.
