I like how you set it up for precisely the reason that you state. I'm one of the members who, as you note, only want to see sex and not solo girls. I appreciate the effort to do that. It made a Nubiles membership more valuable for me. But listing what site the scene is from could be useful too.
BTW - I just rejoined to get access to your new site, Driver XXX, and I'm impressed. That will be a regular rejoin for me as that's a niche I really like.

- 300 scenes
- 30+ are exclusive to this site
- Supports download managers (but links time out in 10-15 minutes)
- High production values
- Top models in the business
- Not misogynistic, the models are obviously having fun
- Tons of ass play and anal sex
- Very large file sizes
- Some may see his work as repetitive, formulaic
- 90% of the scenes here aren't exclusive
- Scene links time out (10-15 minutes)
Most readers here will know Mike Adrianoís work and those who do will either have a solidly pro or con opinion of it. Heís not polarizing because his work is like Max Hardcore, because it certainly isnít, but his work isn't for everyone.
For those who donít know Adrianoís work, itís fair to say that he has a signature look and feel to his scenes. Most of his scenes are shot in a combination of an outdoor setup and an indoor room. He only shoots the biggest stars in the business, and his scenes all have a definite ass theme to them. Even those rare Adriano scenes that donít feature anal sex are still ass-focused. Other things youíll see a lot of are sloppy blowjobs, lots of drool, ball-licking, male-on-female rimming, many scenes have female-on-male rimming and tons of anal sex. Itís important to note that while some sites could treat these sex acts in a way that was degrading to the female models that doesnít happen here. There is no hint of D/s or misogyny here; the models really look to be having fun and Mike Adriano is truly an ass worshipper. Some may find fault that most of his scenes follow a formula but my thought is that since he found a formula that works thereís nothing wrong with sticking to it.
There are currently about 300 scenes available but a prospective member needs to know that only about 30 of these are exclusive. Adriano is a prolific director and performer and is one of the leading directors at Evil Angel. He also shoots for Bang Bros. A member here will find a lot of the same EA scenes on this site too. The good news is that this lack of exclusivity is factored into the price. In my opinion the price of the membership is fair even if all you want are the exclusive scenes.
Each scene opens into a separate page with only one option to stream and three download options, all of which are MP4: 1920x1080, 1280x720 and 704x480. Iím not sure how theyíre encoded but the file sizes are a lot larger than Iím used to seeing for similar specs. The 720p files are all around 3GB each and the 1080p files can top out at more than 5GB. The file sizes may be an issue for some users but given the quality of the porn I didnít find it an issue. The file sizes may also be a reflection of the fact that most of the scenes are near an hour long and many are over an hour long.
The site supports download managers but the links do time out after 10 or 15 minutes. The download speeds varied from okay to great, but given the size of many of the files it wasnít possible to queue up more than two or three 720p scenes at a time.
The site updates with a new scene being added approximately every three days. An important point, however, is that only one exclusive scene is added per month.
I didnít look all that hard, but if there are photos on the site they aren't obvious. Itís fair to say that Adrianoís work is geared to video collectors anyway.
The bottom line is that this is an excellent site that is definitely worth joining. If you like high-quality videos of the top names in the business doing some nasty things and enjoying it, then this site is for you. If youíre already a Mike Adriano fan you just need to be aware that 90% of the scenes here are available elsewhere, mostly on Evil Angel. But if you are truly a Mike Adriano fan the membership fee is still worth it for the exclusive scenes.

- Tens of thousands of videos
- Some of videos appear to be exclusive
- Some videos have decent resolutions
- Few and irregular updates
- Most sites not updating
- A lot of overlap between sites
- The one main site uses low-quality updates
- Almost a clone of Pornstar Network
This review may be a lot more ambiguous than what I normally write but I seem to have more questions than answers about this site (these sites?).
The network is made up of 25 pornstar sites, a mega-site, a Ďmeduim-sizedí site and four niche sites. I canít even give an educated guess as to how many DVDs or scenes are available here because there is a lot of overlap between the Ďsites,í but it would be safe to say that there are tens of thousands of videos here. Sounds enticing, doesnít it?
Of the 25 pornstar sites only four are updating and the update schedules of those can be generously described as sporadic. There can be two updates in a week and then eight months until the next one. The niche sites no longer update. The medium-sized site, called Premium Pass also doesnít update. The mega-site, Premium Vids, updates with a new DVD being added almost daily. That sounds okay doesnít it?
But maybe not. I havenít been a member at Pornstar Network in a while, but having had a membership at PSN a couple of years ago I was immediately struck that Premium Vids is exactly the same as PSN. Comparing the PSN tour pages to PV shows that PSN says they have a lot more videos though, but that may be a result of PSN requiring an upgrade to access all their videos. This is just speculation, but maybe PSN minus the upgrade-required vids equals Premium Vids.
If that isn't a big enough issue, the mega-site relies heavily, and perhaps exclusively, on lower-tier studios with unknown models. Many of these are also very old so the video quality is pretty bad too.
I did check the video quality on some of the later updates on the pornstar sites and those are not bad at 1280x720. I suspect the proportion of videos with that resolution is quite low.
I canít say for certain, but a lot of the videos on the pornstar sites seem to be exclusive (with the possible exception of Pornstar Network).
Perhaps the strangest thing I experienced with this site is that as an avid porn collector I downloaded exactly zero videos from this site (other than a couple of samples to check resolutions Ė which were then deleted). This occurs so rarely that Iím not even sure if it has happened to me.
So would I recommend this site? Only to a narrow group of collectors who find that a favorite model has some scenes here and he just has to get them. Other than that Iíd stay away from this site. Itís mostly a collection of older videos, many of them from low-grade studios with unknown models. If you have $20 to spend on a porn membership you can do a lot better than this.
I think high praise of a site is to tell readers that I liked it so much thatís Iíll definitely be rejoining it again. In this case, itís fair to say that Iíll never join Premium Pass again.
This is an excellent review. I really appreciate all the detail. This is a site I've thought about joining but never did and I think I'll pass now having read your comments. The model age is 10 years more than I prefer and I'm not a fan of big, fake breasts. (Or any fake breasts, for that matter.)

- Interesting and rare niche
- Part of the well-known Kink family of sites
- Good looking models
- Great production values
- 51 scenes
- Updates weekly
- Supports download managers
- Low price for admission to the Kink world
- Likely too narrow a niche to attract many viewers
- New site design is less user-friendly
- Download speeds can be slower than average
- Wide gap in file sizes between highest and next-highest resolutions
BDSM and D/s is a porn niche that I enjoy. Iíve always found that Kink.com offers some of the best BDSM and D/s videos available anywhere. One of my wishes was they would show more behind-the-scenes or Ďhow toí videos since in most of their videos the model is shown already tied up, suspended or whatever without ever showing how she got there. Then thereís just the basic stuff of a BDSM or D/s relationship dynamic that seems fascinating. Members to any of Kinkís sites didnít usually get to peek behind the curtains. And then along comes Kink University and that niche is filled.
Itís important to note that Kink isn't a traditional hardcore sex site, though there is sex here. It isn't a typical BDSM, D/s site either. All of the videos have an instructional element to them regarding the BDSM and D/s activities seen throughout Kink sites. Youíll find videos on rope tying for beginners and for more advanced couples, videos on how to safely use some toys, how to build a home dungeon and how to have anal sex. There are also videos on how to get into the lifestyle, how to use positions and protocols. In short, if you can see it on a Kink site there is probably a video at KU giving you advice on how to bring that home.
If youíre a Kink regular the models here are those youíll be familiar with. Kink seems to have a group of semi-mainstream-porn models who do a lot of fetish work and those models appear here too.
Production values like lighting, sound and editing are all typical of Kink sites, which is to say that they are among the best in the industry. Kink obviously cares about putting out good videos.
The site is currently fairly small but given the uniqueness of the niche I canít fault it for that. There are currently 51 videos available and a new one is added each week.
Clicking on a thumbnail for a scene opens another page where you have the option to stream or download it. I didnít see any resolution options for streaming. Downloads are mostly offered in MP4 version with four resolutions being offered, those being listed as hi, med, low and Ďfullí which is HD. Because of the nature of the videos I opted for the Ďhií files since they were the best compromise between file size and resolution. Those come in at a fairly low (by todayís standards) resolution of 960x540 and 1300kb/s. They donít look bad on a 24Ē monitor or a 32Ē TV. I avoided the full HD downloads because they tended to be up to three times the size of the next lower file. I did download one HD file to be able to compare the specs and it came in at 1280x720 and 5000kb/s. Those specs aren't bad but Iíd expect better in a 50 minute video that is close to 2GB in size. I wish the gap between the files wasnít so big.
The site allows download managers and I had no trouble with the links timing out too quickly. I havenít had any Kink memberships in a while but I donít recall download speeds being this slow in the past. In the past I donít recall download speeds being remarkable for being slow or fast, but my experience with this site is that they are far slower than Iím used to seeing elsewhere. But maybe Iím just hitting the site at the wrong times.
Other Kink sites Iíve been a member at have offered photos but I donít see any photos here. Maybe Iím missing them.
I know some of my comments here have seemed a bit inconclusive and thereís a reason for that: it appears that starting a few days ago Kink has started to roll out a new look for all of their sites. I found their old look to be simple, effective and easy to use. Maybe itís just that the look is new and will take some getting used to. Right now though, the site redesign looks like it was done just to give it a fresh look. For all I know maybe members were complaining that the site looked stale, but Iíll always be opposed to change for the sake of change.
One spin-off advantage to having a membership here is that it is among the lowest priced Kink sites. Thatís important since once you are a member to one site you get a discounted price to all their other sites. I usually join through the cheapest site Iím interested in and then over a period of a few months rejoin other Kink sites that I like at a discount. I can save a lot of money this way.
Like so many other sites any recommendation has to be objective. This site offers 51 scenes (and growing) in a niche that isn't found anywhere else (that Iím aware of), the models are good looking and the production values are high. Objectively I can definitely recommend this site. Subjectively, well thatís your call obviously. BDSM and D/s videos are still considered outside the mainstream for porn so the market isn't huge, and the market for this site is further reduced because not everyone into BDSM and D/s would be into these Ďinstructionalí videos. But if you do have even a passing interest in this kind of video I recommend giving it a try.
My HP experience is a bit different. I had always had a Dell custom built and was careful to get as much performance as possible for my money. A few years ago I realized that my computer was getting a bit old and that I just didn't need the horsepower that I once did so I just went to Costco and bought an HP off the shelf. It's probably fine for what I really, really need, but I still find it slow. Part of that was a glitch that appeared early on. It had 10GB of RAM but then the whole computer stopped working. A tech couldn't explain why, but it worked fine if one of the sticks of RAM was removed. It made no difference which one was removed. There were two 4GB sticks and one 2GB stick so the 2GB was removed. But I find now that it doesn't like multi-tasking. If I'm downloading something using IDM then the computer is pretty much useless for anything else. Maybe IDM is a huge resource hog. And given the age of the computer I'd expect the USB slots to be at least 2.0 but the way they transfer data I'm guessing that they're 0.05! Sloooow!
Next time I'm likely going to have one built by a local shop. I've developed a relationship with this place because to send my HP for warranty work requires shipping it to some place faaaaar away and waiting for a month. I can pay and get it fixed in a day. But that means that warranty I paid for is money pissed away.
But I'm sure a lot of this is because I should have done more homework before buying...

- Some fresh models early in their careers
- Lots of download and streaming options
- Good production values
- TBP Discount
- Small site
- Updates are very slow to arrive
- Site will remain small unless the update schedule is increased
- Download speeds varied
- Would be better off as part of a network
When I saw this site listed as a new site on TBP I signed up. Iím a big fan of collecting Ďfirsts,í and especially collecting first anals. I knew this would be a small site since it was just starting out but I had high hopes that it would develop into a great site for this rare niche. And the fact that the site is affiliated with Porn Pros gave me some comfort too. I went into the membership with my eyes open and the scenes are good but unless one fatal flaw is fixed this site isn't worth the membership right now.
There are currently only nine scenes uploaded. For a new site in a narrow niche thatís to be expected though. The problem specific to this site is that it appears that they only add one new scene per month. When the site started they added one new scene every three days and then they went a month before a new scene was added. Unless they pick up the pace this site will be a low value for a while.
The scenes themselves are well done. All of the models are typical porn cupcakes in that they are young (18-20), petite and natural. Several of the models will be added to my list of favorites and I hope to see a lot more of them in the future.
Of the nine scenes one is billed as the modelís first scene ever, one is the modelís first interracial scene, two are each modelís first (vaginal only) gang bang and five are the modelís first anal scenes.
The videos are available in streaming or as a download. Streaming is available in two resolutions. Downloads are available as MP4s in 1080p, 720p and 480p, as a 480p MPG1 and as a 720p WMV. I downloaded the 720p MP4s and those come in at 1280x720 and 2,600 kb/s. While the bitrate is low there is no pixilation at all and the video looks sharp.
Photos are available too Ė as singles or as a zip. The zipped photos are 1500x1000.
The site allows download managers and I didnít have any issue using one. Download speeds varied from average to poor Ė I often saw download speeds drop below 1MB/s. (The site seems to be affiliated with Porn Pros and I have that same issue there too.)
So would I recommend the site? Probably not, unless you really need to have one or more of the scenes. Even with the TBP discount this site isn't a good value and unless they start updating more often itíll be a long time before it is a good value. This is an under-served niche and the site could be a great stand-alone site if it was updating more frequently. As it is now, however, the site would be far a better option as part of a larger network.
I can't really say, but I can say that since the Canadian dollar has lost a lot of value relative to the U.S. dollar it has affected my porn buying habits - of European sites that use the U.S. dollar and of American porn site.
We're definitely on the same page when it come to glory hole sites.
When I first joined GH Secrets the previews made it look exactly like GH Swallow (I was worried it might even be a clone) but I was only slightly disappointed to learn that they use a mock GH. But it sound like you and I share a trait: the fact that GH Swallow is recorded in an actual adult theatre adds a whole different layer of heat to the scenes.
I can recall two models I liked who had it done (I won't name them) and they looked like circus clowns after that. So while I chose 'never' as my option, I only did so because 'never, never, never, never!' wasn't listed!
Definitely one of the advantages that Glory Hole Swallow has is the realism from using a real glory hole in a real adult theatre. For me, and it sound like for you too, that adds a lot to the scene. Obviously there are a lot less risks going with a staged setting, and the staged booth here is better than the fake bathrooms that most other sites use.
You're likely right about the male talent too. At Glory Hole Swallow they have a forum where the members can sign up to be one of the guys getting a blowjob. Glory Hole Secrets has an FAQ page and I expected to see something to that effect too but didn't. The absence of that tells me that they use known talent.
Still, it's a good site even if they are trying to copy Glory Hole Swallow - at least they've chosen a great site to emulate.

I suspect that most porn buyers are like me and wish that this niche didnít need to exist. But in a world where so many porn money shots are the guy jerking off on the girl this site is needed. The whole premise of the site is that the girls finish the guys off in every scene. (Thatís the premise, but there are scenes where the usual happens.)
Iíll start with what this site does well Ė its good porn. The scenes feature top porn models and the scenes are all fairly hot and fun to watch. And there aren't many jerk-off sessions either Ė most of these girls do finish the job.
This site is really made up of three distinct sub-sites: Mano Job, which features handjobs, The Dick Suckers, which features blowjobs, and Mr. POV which features hardcore b/g sex. Itís a great idea to break the scenes down into those sub-genres because many people may prefer one niche over the others. I find handjobs boring to watch, for example, so I could filter those out if I wanted to.
The site currently has 1400+ scenes available with a new one added every day, making it a good value. In case anyone is interested, Mano Job has 850+ scenes, The Dick Sucker has 300+ scenes and Mr. POV has 280+ scenes.)
The volume of great porn is enough for me to recommend the site, but to allow prospective members to make an informed decision you should know that the site has some flaws. These are, in no particular order:
ē The download speeds vary wildly. I could download a scene and see 15MB/s and then download immediately after and see less than 1MB/s. I could understand if I was downloading at peak times and consistently got slow speeds but that wasnít the case. I tried different times and would get different speeds regularly. Most downloads came in at the slower end of things at about 2MB/s. In my opinion, the download speeds are the greatest flaw here. While I could hit average speeds, in most cases the downloads were well below average speeds expected in 2015.
ē Scene quality varied. The scenes had multiple download options but most offered 1080p. The 1080p quality wasnít consistent: on some scenes it was true 1080 and on others it was lower.
ē Video quality isn't the best. Iím not a tech guy but most of the scenes were a little fuzzy with some pixilation Ė and this is with downloading the best resolution available. I also found that there was a narrow band at the bottom of many of the scenes that was badly pixilated.
ē Download managers are supported but may cause issues. Iíd normally queue up scenes but since the site doesnít allow downloads to be stopped and resume I played it safe and downloaded individually.
Scene resolution varies too, but some of that is to be expected since the site has been around for 10 years. Most of the newer scenes are good with 1920x1080 at 6200kb/s and 1280x720 at 2800kb/s being common. Some scenes are lower at 1024x768 at 2500kb/s. There are even some really low resolution scene tossed into the mix but thankfully these seem rare. These are 320x240. Some older scenes are remastered and uploaded as a new scene. While I donít have a problem with that, these remastered scenes are often fuzzy and pixilated. A problem that the site seems to have is the bitrate they use which is only half of that used by many other sites. I suspect the low bitrate is the culprit for the reduced quality. The file types aren't listed but I always chose one of the two best resolutions depending on file size and those were all in MP4 format.
Streaming is also available in multiple resolutions.
The site also offers some interesting options: apart from the full scene you could stream or download just the money shot (sometimes also offered in slow-motion) and an interview with the model.
The site has a list of tags for all the common niches so itís easy to sort for anything youíre looking for. You can also sort by models.
Photos are also available, as singles or as a zip. The photos are 1500x1000 which wonít impress any serious collector, but it is fair to say that this is more of a video site than a photo site.
The TBP review says the Terms of Reference mentions a download limit but doesnít put a number on it. I canít confirm this, but if there is a limit it has to be fairly high. I downloaded close to 50GB in one day trying to find the limit but was never locked out or prevented from downloading.
Overall I still recommend the site because the good outweighs the bad. This is an under-served niche (which only shows how crappy a lot of porn is these days) and has more than 1400 scenes available on a well-organized site. The download speeds are well below average and the resolution quality could be better, but the site is worth checking out if you can put up with those flaws. I canít however, give it my highest rating which is to say that this is a site Iíll rejoin. I donít regret joining once, but the speeds and video quality issues are enough to make it unlikely that Iíll rejoin.
