It isn't usually anything to worry about from your end.
If you want to know more about how they do it you can do a search for "brute force attack" and "dictionary attack" and you'll find explanations on the lengths hackers go to exploit security systems.
From wikipedia:
"As of 2011, commercial products are available that claim the ability to test up to 2,800,000,000 passwords a second on a standard desktop computer using a high-end graphics processor."

One word passes all in lower case will make it very easy to hack.
Choosing difficult passwords using a mix of capital and lower case letters, numbers and permitted symbols, with at least 8 characters, will make it a lot more difficult for them.
A decent security system will block the username as soon as it's been exploited. It's how the system then treats the authorised user in getting back into the site that's the issue.
I realised a long time ago that over 90% of blocked usernames weren't the fault of the authorised user which is why I installed a system that allows the user to retrieve a new random password instantly, as often as he likes.
There's no reason to treat customers like criminals and totaly block access because of hackers.

Sorry for the long post but hope that explains it somewhat. http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

Sounds like a Brute Force Attack with your login being one that was hacked.
We get them all the time so found it easier for us and the customer to install a password retrieval system whereby the user can retrieve a new password instantly using their e-mail address when they've been blocked.
There are no privacy issues to worry about and most site owners should know it's rarely the customers fault as sharing passes isn't as common as BFAs. http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

tubes aren't as bad as some of the forums as a lot of websites post their own videos for promotion now.
If there were more like you, and the other members here, our budgets for shooting new content would be a lot bigger http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

I paid for it and downloaded what was on offer.


That's one way of looking at it but it has now become known, certainly amongst those doing it and site owners, for taking from the site and posting it on another site for others to download, usually free of charge.
I've had one of my sites removed from 3 different places this week. They'll probably be back within days so it's a big time consuming job keeping a watch but luckily I have a lot of people give me a heads up quite quickly, mainly paying members I'm glad to say
If someone was to rip my site for their own use, that's fine by me http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

It's the cheaper bandwidth and bigger harddrive space that has enabled us to deliver better quality content. That's what the paying customer wants...better quality and the ability to download everything that's being offered within his membership without limits.
Paysites are now competing with tubes that give surfers as many videos as they want to watch totally free so why should a paying customer be limited?
It doesn't make sense.

Nice looking content btw http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

sorry didn't have this thread added for e-mail replies...

No, I don't regret stopping by at all
Bandwidth isn't a worry for me at all, that's correct.
My videos have been 500mb+ for a while and with 1 or 2 new videos a week plus 1 or 2 big photo zips I have no worries with people downloading everything.
Anyone with a problem isn't getting a good deal on their hosting. It's far far cheaper now than it was just 2 years ago and if they're not asking for a price reduction every now and again then they're paying too much. If they don't get a lower price there are plenty of good hosts waiting with good deals to get the business.
The ONLY problem I've found is when too many are using download managers at the same time during busy periods it can slow the site down but that's only happened a couple of times in the last few years. Busy periods tend to be 10pm to midnight GMT.
Password traders aren't an issue with the correct security in place. Passwords get hacked every few minutes, sometimes 20 different ones in a minute, but they're blocked straight away and members can retrieve a new pass themselves instantly.

Anyway, if you join a site and want to download any amount you should be able to without feeling guilty, that's what joining a site is all about. The days of putting restrictions on paying members should be in the past. http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

Yes, Just Danica is just Danica and aimed at the army of fans she's grown in over 30 years modelling.
When you watch one of her videos it's not hard to see why she's so popular.

I'm starting to shoot new content for an old site of mine in February. It was very popular in the early 2000's but I'm afraid the photo quality and size on both the pics and videos is nowhere near up to scratch now and as the guy that shot the content isn't around I don't have the originals to up the quality. It's a shame as I think the original content really is bang on subject. http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

Analising the logs of every user would be a job in itself so no, although I do have stats available for that kind of thing, I don't have time to go into the details of each one.
What I do tend to do regularly is see which sets/videos are the most popular overall and can see at a glance if something isn't quite right and then look into the reasons why. http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

Danica Collins site JustDanica.com
Danica has big natural boobs and a fantastic arse.
Her photos are some of the best quality you'll find on any site, although being just one model it might not be for you. http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

some you win, some you lose - as long as it averages out to being profitable overall I'm quite happy.
Initially people joining tend to download a lot but then settle down after a few days to downloading what they like rather than everything.
Bandwidth is so much cheaper nowadays that it isn't really an issue for any size of site. It's more about whether their server can cope with the peaks. http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

Some people prefer pictures, some people prefer videos.
Some people prefer streaming, some prefer download.
I've found the best way is to offer as many options as possible with the downloads being the best quality, bigger file sizes.

I've recently had webmasters contacting me asking me to take down my downloads and go streaming only and that if everyone sticks together it will stop piracy and bring back sales.
I told them in no uncertain terms that I thought it was the most stupid idea I'd heard to date.
There's nothing worse for business than putting stupid restrictions on legitimate, paying users. http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

Site ripping is now meant to mean where someone downloads a full site and then posts it on pirate sites for everyone and his dog to download free of charge.

I don't have any download limits. My view is you pay your money you download whatever and however much you want, when you want it.
Sites that impose usage limits are only going to piss off legitimate users and that's bad business in my view. Surely a site wants its legitimate users to download and enjoy every update and not have a constant battle with restrictions. I see users unhappy on some sites as they've reached a limit and can't download the latest update until their limit has expired. That's not what joining a site should be about and those site owners are the first to blame site ripping and piracy for their sites failing whereas the real reason is their lack of understanding what the end user really wants - and has paid for. http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

Sorry if it's not what you're looking for but Danica Collins is a mature solo model and her site Just Danica has gone from strength to strength since launching on the 1st October 2010 and is updated twice a week like clockwork.
Danica works the site harder than any model I've worked with, replies to all the e-mails, Member requests etc.
and the content is top notch:
The photos are in 3 sizes, 1280/2000 and 3000 and each size zipped.
The videos are a huge 1920 x 1080 (HD) full screen but also available to download in lower resolutions (720) or stream.
The site was only 3 months old when TBP reviewed it
http://www.thebestporn.com/review/justdanica/
and unfortunately no PU reviews as yet. http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

Yes, you do become reliant on them to secure your site because that's what you pay them to do but after watching everything for a few days you soon realise just how good a job it does. http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

Mistress Kent, you don't use any password security?
There's a large number of very good programs available that will enable you to sit back and make your porn without having to worry about hackers and password traders.
The best is Phantom Frog.
Not only does it immediately block unauthorised password usage but it changes the password so that only the person that joined the site can retrieve the new one using the e-mail address he joined with. The member can retrieve it instantly this way without having to wait or contact you.
Most aren't blocked due to sharing passwords, they're blocked due to hackers/brute force attacks. This means legitimate users often get blocked through no fault of their own and are more often than not a bit pissed off about it, and rightly so.
From monitering usage for many hours a day I now spend next to no time dealing with password issues and can leave the house, go on holiday or fly to the moon, happy in the fact that my site is secure.
There's a lot more it does that I won't go into here, suffice to say it works very well and I highly recommend it.
E-mail me if you have any questions, I'd be happy to help.

I've been doing this for over 4 years and it works well.
Join the full site for $29.99 or buy individual scenes for $4. I've also tried a few photosets in zips with some success and plan to add a lot more this year.
$4 is about the minimum I can ask due to the costs of affiliates, processing, bandwidth etc taking the lions share.
Some people just want to download certain girls or one scene now and again whereas others will buy every scene I add which amounts to far more than joining with the monthly fee - never have figured that one out! http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

I've offered the 2 size zips for a while now, 1280 or 2000 resolution, and the 2000 are a lot more popular.
We always edit our sets down to around 120 pics, when we get down to that it gets difficult to leave any out. GG sets can be hard to get down below 150 due to far more photo options/views.

A new site I've recently launched I've gone with an extra 3000 resolution size (as well as the 1280 and 2000) as I feel the photo quality is just so stunning at that size that I wanted to give the highest quality I could. Sets in this site are around 70-80 pics.

Making zips on the fly is too much of a burden on a server and could cause more bad feelings than it's worth if it failed to zip a selection of pics. Not sure I'd want the hassle of that.

I'm pretty sure its similar to OT in the fact there's little full nudity as some of the girls on there don't work to those levels. Carmen for example won't do open leg although she will be in next months Escort magazine doing so, just not yet ready to do so online http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

One of my pet hates and the reason none of the models on my site have boobjobs and never will. They look unnatural and ruin the whole look of a girl in 99-100% of cases.
Several have gone on to have boob jobs after shooting with us so they don't get another shoot. Shame others in the industry didn't adopt the same approach. I hear one company even paid its models to have the op, to me that's obscene.
Some excellent models started out with us (Natalie Heck, Sophie Dee, Michelle Barrett etc) and had great natural bodies, now they look completely out of proportion.
Shame. Rant over :) http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

Then I think you'll be pretty much satisfied with Suburban Amateurs. The dressed and part dressed girls, as well as the clothing, are a huge part of our photosets and videos....and not a fake boob on the site :) http://www.suburbanamateurs.com/freeview/

They haven't been shortened but they are just the tops. Most nurses tend to wear trousers rather than stockings in real life ;)

I've lowered the price and allowed a bigger discount for longer term subscriptions. I'll see if that has any affect over the next few months.

Not much point in us asking for more of a model if she has long left the business.


Check the "calender" tab on the top nav bar, it goes all the way back to 2003.
Also, the "Photos" tab has the photo updates all listed and dated in order as does the "movies" tab for movies.
"View all updates" shows both dated and in order and all go back to 2003.
All updates are current models.

Although some (a lot?) of the time girls will keep items such as stockings on everything is on show in every set.
I could do a category for "full nudity" where they take everything off though..

Yes, we've got a few now and would like more but finding the right ones for the site isn't that easy.

This is my particular passion. I never can get enough of this style of set.
I suppose you might call it a Full Strip Fetish?


I can only think of a few sets in the site that actually start nude and some of those are the girls dressing, pulling on stockings etc.
If we're short on anything it would be the non-explicit nude, mainly in older sets as we've been trying to take more of these for a while now.

Turtle neck sweater (Polo Neck - Brit), jeans & boots is a particular favourite. I also like formal or evening wear.
Uniforms are fine provided they are the real McCoy & not a tacky 'play' uniform. The real nurse uniforms you use are good. Some are too short to be realistic though.
It is always nice to build up anticipation with a few fully clothed full body shots. Reclining poses, both clothed & nude can be particularly erotic IMO
Landscape format is particularly good for this, more intimate than the formal & distancing portrait.


Although the design shows the thumbs cropped in portrait we do have a good mix of landscape/portrait photos.
I must admit we have used some of the "tacky 'play' uniforms" in the past lol - but all 4 of our nurses uniforms are real.

I think their removal can be a very erotic part of the strip, if performed & shot well.


A large part of our fanbase are legs/stockings/heels/feet lovers. Some like feet in nylon others like bare feet and so on. We shoot each girl in a variety of different outfits and styles to try and cover all angles.
We could shoot each style for a different site but that would make each site a lot smaller and updated less often.


Originally Posted by Capn:

Sure that is all well & good, but please lets have a proper look at the model fully nude beforehand without the squeezing, groping & rogering.


We do shoot about 30-40% of sets with toys but they only come out in the last 15-20 photos of 100+ photo sets.

I couldn't agree more. I'd prefer to see every girl with hair but very few have nowadays :(

If you can't get near that, maybe offer a cheaper option without the bonus sites?


As the $'s dropping against the £ I'll be reducing the price to under $30 again.

Hi guys,
I've just found the forum while checking out my updated review here so this is my first post.
Striptease is something I love and we cater for it in both our pics and videos at suburbanamateurs.com
Almost every set starts off fully clothed and then a slow striptease, not always to nude but always to rude. We feature girls in stockings, uniforms, pantyhose, casual clothes etc.
We do go to masturbation mainly with fingers but toys too, we try to mix it up.
Since the beginning of August photosets are now at 1280x853 and 2000x1333 (the bigger size are also zipped) and videos are getting better quality all the time and in full length wmv, divx, ipod and streaming flash as well as 1 minute wmv clips.
While revamping the site we took in a lot of the feedback from PUs so hope you like the new look and easy navigation. The freeview is a copy of the members area so you can get a full feel for the site including using the search and post comments without joining. I think the only thing you can't do as a non member is vote for the girls.

Anyway, please take a look and let me know what you think and thanks for reading.
