Odd poll in that there seem to be several options missing - no "love it" option for those who love both Euro/US and Japanese, no option for me where I quite like bukkake but don't love it, and no option for "other"
So I think it's a bit unfair as obviously people like me can't vote, those who have no preference over where it's from can't vote, so the result is overwhelmingly biased towards those who don't like it.
It's strange because I think she's great - she's been doing strip tease ever since I've been into porn and it doesn't get boring, but I always join her site every 6-or-so months and every time it just leaves me feeling unfulfilled - it's a shame.
Thanks for the updated review. This was a massively disappointing site for me. Anna's great but the content is pretty poor, and I think there has only been about one hardcore update since I left over a month ago.
I don't mind a few, so long as they're obviously ads and not trying to trick you into thinking it's additional membership content. If an ad means I discover another porn site, then IMHO that's a good thing.
I'm not a fan of regional pricing, and although I respect Capn for his passionate stance on the matter, I think 15 points is far too many to consider docking a website for regional pricing.
Like you noticed, I've updated the review, reduced the score by 3, but I'll let PU members draw their own conclusions. The score is illustrative of my thoughts on the site. I've gone into detail in the pros/cons, so if a particular issue (eg, regional pricing) grinds somebody's axe, then they have every right not to join the site - I'm only sorry I missed this in the first review, but like I say, quality of content is more important to me than regional pricing which is why it slipped the net.
I don't know the whole story about regional pricing - for example, I don't know if webmasters have to shoulder extra costs from international members, so it's not really for me to by judge, jury and executioner.
I don't really notice any flaws vs standard definition. Regardless, though, I think 'flaws' add character. Always mystifies me when a website goes through the effort to photoshop out moles etc, but then leave them in the video.
Interesting, and if true, not particularly surprising. Her website did seem to have a lot of recycled content, and you've just reminded me of another con which is that their preview section implies (well, basically says...) Anna is NOW LIVE when she actually isn't.
With regards to 10 year-old content, yeah, I think a lot of the content is basically recycled from her old site, and it seems her webcams aren't even live which is unacceptable really.
The H/C content? Pretty sure that is new because her figure is different. She took a year-or-so off (at least) while she had a baby, and her boobs are definitely not as pert as they were.
I think regional pricing is bit of a cheek, but I don't feel as strongly as you - 15 seems a lot to reduce the score by! I have put it into the cons, and will let people draw their own conclusions in this respect.
My personal POV is that videos are more important to me, too, but that doesn't mean I don't care about videos. Frankly I'm not a photo collector per-se, but so far I've not actually downloaded many photos just because it's quite hard to know where to start!
Like I say in the review, I'm quite choosy about photos I save, and I think if zips aren't a consideration, then it would be better IMHO to be able to right-click thumbnails and save the JPG which would effectively halve the amount of clicking. Not sure if the full-size JPGs are on individual pages to thwart pirates, though.
Thank you for the reply. I ran out of characters to explain about why WMV files are no longer available, but I certainly didn't mark the site down for that.
I understand why from a webmaster's POV you don't offer ZIP files, but it does make it hard for members. I think I would find it easier if you could right-click thumbnails and save the link. I thought it was really important to communicate this to readers.
Chica's Place is a great website, so I'm really happy that your aspirations hardcore-wise are similar. Actually laughed that some people are disappointed because it rules them out of the picture - they sound like Beliebers who begrudged Selena Gomez for dating Justin Beiber (and no, I'm most certainly not a Beiber fan!)

See my Bella Pass review for in-depth thoughts on the network as a whole.
A note on Bella Network's piracy policy: Bella Network has a very strict piracy policy. They are extremely clear with this when you join. Sometimes legitimate members MIGHT get blocked - Bella have have made improvements to their customer service so that this can easily be investigated and rectified.
Iíll cut to the chase and say this is one of the best amateur solo model websites I have ever joined.
It has all the benefits of a solo model website (personality, insight into the model etc) while being part of a slick, regularly updated network.
Membership includes access to the following bonus sites:
Katie Banks - very similar to Bryci, with content being softcore Talia Shepard - youíll probably like Talia if you like Bryci - softcore Hunter Leigh - beautiful model, relatively new. Nudity but no toys Lexi Mason - extremely petite, relatively new to Bella Ava Dawn - site no longer updating but has over 50 videos Monroe Lee - super-curvy but site no longer updating
If you like Bryci, Talia Shepard and Katie Banks are from the same mould. Bryciís site is currently the only one with hardcore content, but both Talia and Katieís sites are comparable size-wise to Bryciís.
You can browse content from the whole network, or just Bryciís site using a drop down in the top right. You also have a very good search function where you can search by niche or by site.
Bryci has the usual sections for photos and video content, but in addition to this:
BIO: A hugely comprehensive biography. Features her essential statistics but also a very, very in-depth profile with information about her and her site.
CANDIDS: 71 candid galleries featuring Bryci. Some are her out and about or on holiday, many are self-shot pics featuring her in various states of undress.
BLOG: Regularly updated and from what I can tell, actually written by Bryci. Includes personal updates, previews of forthcoming galleries etc, and various candid photos.
BABECHAT: Video web chat featuring models from Bella Network. Bryci doesnít seem to be on the schedule, but Talia Shepard and Katie Banks make frequent appearances. She might be just taking a few weeks off, though, as there are plenty of videos of her in the archive.
WALLS: Lots and lots of stylised wallpapers.
Currently 308 galleries, approximately 80 photos each. If you hover over the gallery thumbnails they animate to show a sample of images inside. You can sort galleries by most recent or by name.
All images are downloadable, feature a small, translucent watermark and can either be viewed at 1500px or 4000px. Zips are not available, and batch download programmes are prohibited, which is a big mark against the site as itís hugely time-consuming to download images. You canít right-click thumbnails and download link because the high-res images are placed onto a web page, so youíd download this, not the image. It makes the concept of even downloading a sample of images quite a bewildering prospect. The majority of the points deducted from giving the site a perfect score are because of this, and Iím not even a huge photo collector.
Currently there are no hardcore galleries. Most galleries feature Bryci enjoying her own company in the form of strip-tease and/or masturbation with or without toys. Sheís extremely charismatic in front of the camera and oozes confidence. Most updates are shot in and around the house in the bedroom, bathroom etc, but any updates outside are well-lit and still very polished.
Currently 341 videos including webchat archives and behind-the-scenes. The video pages again feature animating thumbnails, but the animation generally only shows the first part of the video. Webchat archives and BTS are mixed in with the standard videos which is a minor niggle. You can either stream a Flash video (skipping to any part as it loads) or download the video in a number of sizes/formats:
* As of March 2013, WMV is no longer being added, but it is still available on older updates
Videos are excellently shot. The majority are softcore with Bryci stripping and playing with toys or masturbating, recent videos feature hardcore. Currently there are six hardcore videos (since March) so although thereís not too much at the moment, itís being added frequently so will build up quickly.
The first two were artistically shot (in the dark or behind shower curtain), and although and the next was poorly lit, the others are well shot. Most hardcore has so far been POV, but the most recent had a version shot POV, and one from a second camera. Bryciís foray into hardcore is confident and assertive, and although already impressive, Iím sure technically the videos will improve in terms of lighting, angles etc as more and more content is added.
Most videos are in the region of 10-15 minutes long. Webcam videos are also mixed in with video updates and are around an hour long.
Bryci is wonderful, and her site does her justice. Thereís a lot of bonus content on her site, and plenty of relevant bonus sites youíll like if you like Bryci. The difficulty of saving images is a big mark against the site, while most other criticisms are minor at best.
