Iím a big fan of Seymore Buttsí movies. He was one of the best and most prolific producer/directors in the business for a while and his movies were unique. He offered a true gonzo style that was fun to watch, he focussed heavily on anal sex and ass play, and he had some hot women who worked almost exclusively for/with him. The porn business was better for his contributions.
This is purely speculative, but I donít think that this site has any actual affiliation with Adam Glasser, aka Seymore Butts. I think this because Glasser seemed to take a lot of pride in his work, and justifiably so, and, excuse the pun, was anal about his work. This was demonstrated in the series about his business titled ďFamily BusinessĒ that aired on Showtime. There is nothing about this site that shows Glasserís quest for high quality.
The really odd thing about this site is that while SB was all DVD-based porn, the site isnít arranged by DVD title, itís arranged by scenes only. There are a dozen scene thumbnails per page with a brief description of the scene but youíll need to open the link to a scene before you can see what DVD itís from. And even then the DVD title isnít a clickable link to the other scenes in the title and there appears to be no way to search or sort by title. Maybe this will annoy only me, since I prefer to put the scenes from a DVD in a folder with the DVD title.
There are currently 192 scenes on the site, though saying Ďcurrentlyí might be misleading as it implies that the site is updating. The last scene uploaded was about seven months ago, so while I canít say for certain that the site isnít updating, it sure looks like it isnít. And with only about one-third of SB titles uploaded it isnít like theyíve already run out of material.
It appears that the site had a major renovation between the time when RustyJ reviewed it 14 months ago. Rusty reported the downloaded files were in WMV format and were all large. There are no download options offered: there is one link labelled Ďdownloadí and you take what youíre given. I downloaded 116 scenes and all of them are in MP4 format. While there are a few files that come in slightly over 1 GB, the average file size is about 300-400 MB. The files I downloaded are all 1280x720, 3000 kb/s and 29fps. Those arenít bad specs for scenes which are at least a decade old and in a lot of cases may be much older than that. Subjectively they look good.
The site itself could also have benefitted from a renovation. While Iím a proponent of keeping things simple, this site might be too simple. The layout is basic with not a lot of options to search. The Ďpornstarí tab only lists 12 models, to give you an example of how weak the site design is. But with less than 200 scenes offered, the weak site design isnít a big issue.
Streaming is available, though I didnít try it, and there appeared to be no streaming options.
I used a download manager to queue scenes for download and had no problems. Download speeds were what I usually get with other sites. I downloaded a lot in a day and never encountered any kind of limit or throttling.
The site offers four membership options: two trials (three and seven day), one month and an annual membership. I wouldnít normally offer advice here, but I think it is sound advice to say that no one should consider an annual membership given the size of the site and the fact that thereís been nothing added in seven months. I opted for the seven day trial but in hindsight I should have gone for the three day trial instead, but without any kind of a tour available to prospective members I didnít know what to expect. More advice Ė learn from my mistake. As Warren Buffet once said, itís great to learn from your mistakes, but its better learn from other peopleís mistakes. The seven day trial was full access and TBP reports that the three day trial is too, but I canít confirm that.
The site bills through Segpay so you can be assured that your membership will be fairly easy to cancel. One thing I didnít try so canít confirm, is whether your access is cut off after you cancel the trial membership.
While SB videos are offered elsewhere, such as Videobox, the file specs here are better, so if youíre a SB fan and looking for some of his stuff, this may be what youíre looking for.
The bottom line is that if youíre a SB fan this can be a good value if you opt for a trial. The downside is that if youíre a SB fan looking to add some titles you donít have there is no way to see which titles are offered here, and once you are a member there is no way to easily find the titles youíre looking for in the site. The upside is that for such Ďancientí porn as this, itís been encoded in a way that makes it look good despite much of it having been shot on videotape. Iíd recommend a trial membership, but make sure you go in with your eyes open.

1920 x 1080 videos.
No sneaky checkmarked gotcha! boxes on the credit card page when initially signing up.
Website is pretty responsive while you're repeatedly logging back in.
Seymore Butts' site is included but not the focus of the review (only showing four videos with Shane, btw).
It logs you out every ten minutes if you're downloading videos, and you have to enter captcha to get back in. It doesn't force you to log back in as frequently if you're only streaming the videos.
Download managers don't work. Let me rephrase: Queuing doesn't work, and if you try to download two videos at the same time one or both will usually fail. LOADS of 416 errors, and downloads don't resume where failed.

-Cheap. 9.95$ a month is a bargain. One pint less a month and you've saved the cost of this site. No regional pricing nonsense either.
-Exclusive Seymore Butts content. I really do like his stuff and the man himself is ok too which is important since directors appearing in their own stuff are usually douche bags
-Superb female models that rarely appear in anybody elses videos. Alisha Klass, Mari Possa and McKayla Matthews in particular
-Streaming video quality is good and they work fast
-Decent download speeds over 6 megabytes per second. DL managers work, no download limitations
-Strong ass focus (both female and male) not seen on many sites. This might also be a con for some
-Fun, relaxed approach and atmosphere in scenes
-More girls than guys in nearly every scene. I wish other sites also understood how important this is. I'm talking especially about you 21Sextury
-Video comment sections are spammed full of nonsense links and nobody seems to care
-Some few downloadable wmv videos are badly encoded and horribly pixelated like watching lego porn. This problem looks exactly like "HD" videos on Hustler site. The streaming versions are ok. These are the clips which don't say they are taken from a certain DVD title
-Unreasonably large files. 40 minutes of upscaled wmv can take two and half gigabytes
-Many "HD" files are upscaled normal definition material which is pretty obvious when you consider that models like Alisha Klass quit before HD was invented. TBP should notice things like this in professional reviews. Not sure if there's a single scene shot in HD
-No onsite option to cancel your subscription. Luckily the biller is SegPay and it is very easy to do on their site
-Bad preview as mentioned in the discussion on the comments section. You must take the plunge to see if they have the titles you do not have yet
I took the chance to subscribe a non VOD Seymore Butts site the moment I noticed one was available. I'm generally strongly oppsed to any porn with the director having a strong role in with few exceptions and those include Seymore Butts (well, if you can get by his hairdo) and Rocco Siffredi. These are examples of guys who don't appear total douche when chatting with models or participating themself. I guess everyone knows at least the name Seymore Butts, with all the reality show and stuff he's maybe one of the most recognized names in the industry.
Over the years it seemed that very little changed in Seymore's style. His titles were very similar in general theme with all being kind of home made gonzo porn. Even his studio name reflected this. A typical scene starts with Seymore entering his house or swimming pool area while shooting freehand only to eventually find some people having sex in his house after placing his groceries in the fridge, feeding the dog or doing other similar activity. Sometimes he's himself in the action, usually with the camera seemingly on a tripod or shooting handheld in POV style. The production values are low but the action is fun and genuine feeling with good enough quality.
Seymore has strong focus on anal sex and girls so all is good there. You can expect to see more females than males on these scenes but be warned: You'll also see lots of male ass as that is one niche he seems to be fond of. Nothing as heavy as strapon action though but lots of licking, fingering and some toys. In the end it's the females who get the harder treatment. Every scene is hardcore, no posing or soft stuff. Some girl/girl scenes but even they usually have guys entering sooner or later.
Models are very high quality, the most famous ones being those who Seymore used to date (or possibly be married with) at the times, Alisha Klass, Mari Possa, Taylor Hayes and Shane. There are few others too who used to work with him a lot, McKayla Matthews being the personal favorite of mine.
Most of the material comes from Seymore's DVD releases and are labeled accordingly to which one they are taken from. The scenes are long and they seem to be upscaled quite nicely. There are also some shorter ones with very nasty pixelation that requires media player post processing to be viewable. Those pixelated scenes are quite easy to tell apart by significantly smaller file size and not being from any named DVD title. Strangely they look very good streaming. The DVD titles scenes are upscaled to 720p, a practice which I'm not entirely in favor of as it ends up wasting space without bringing in more information. The quality is as good as it gets with the originals though so I'm not complaining.
To date this site has some 150+ scenes and updates roughly once a week. As you can also read from the discussion under comments section, Symore Butts is probably very much not active director so I don't think it's realistic to expect anything new here. Also worth noticing is that this site doesn't have nearly all his videos (at least not yet) and the previews aren't very helpful so if you are a fan of his with a collection downloaded from elsewhere (this is not exclusive stuff by any means) or even bought on DVD's, you are going to find lots of stuff you already have. Then again, less than 10$ isn't going to make too big gap in your budget compared to the cost of some more popular sites here.
Slight nitpickings would include automatic streaming video start upon loading a scene page and the totally nonsense file names. For the sake of knowing what you have, I'd like all sites to follow some logic in their file naming if they don't want to put the actual name of the scene in it. Personally I could easily rate this site as high as 90 or more as my past with Seymore is more like good memories than a large collection. I would also factor the price in. It's not often that you find something this cheap and with a known biller to give more security. My high'ish rating reflects what they give me at this low price and leaves out the fact that they could give me even more.
