Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: - Large studio
- Big-budget, plot-based DVDs
- 500+ DVDs
- DVDs appear to be complete
- A who’s who of A-list models
- A lot of scenes with normal clothes and makeup
- DVDs ranging from 2005 to 2014
- Updates regularly
- 50% TBP/PU discount
Cons: - Streaming only
- Emphasis on models with large breasts (real and fake) – this won’t be a negative for everyone
- Older videos stream in lower resolution
- Older videos download the whole movie to your cache, which could be an issue for those with caps
- Tags don’t appear to be effective in finding scenes
Bottom Line: There are two things any prospective member should know before considering a membership here. The first is that the site offers streaming only (though a recent comment stated that with the right software the HTTP stream can be captured). The second is that this studio specializes in plot-based porn, some of it with a big budget and location shoots. If you prefer gonzo this might seem a bit tame for you. (One advantage to plot-based porn is that when the plot involves normal life – as opposed to pirates, for example – the model’s clothes and makeup are more natural. This is big plus for me. I’d rather see a model in jeans and light makeup than wearing PVC clothes and garish makeup.)

The site is fairly standard for a studio site and it has many of the same flaws that other studio sites have. While the porn itself is quite good, the site lets it down. Digital Playground is a lot better than some other studio sites, but not as good as many exclusive sites.

The site currently has just over 500 DVDs available. It certainly looks like all the scenes in each DVD are available. There is also the ability to sort by scene and while most of those scenes can be associated with a DVD it does appear that some of the scenes are (for now, at least) not part of a DVD. It may be that the scenes get assembled into the DVD once they’re all uploaded. It looks like there is one scene uploaded each day although there does appear to be the occasional gap.

As can be expected with any website that has material ranging from 2005 to 2014 the quality of the older stuff is less than the newer stuff. Most of the older DVDs are available in four resolutions: 720, 576, 480 and 320. New DVDs are available in 1080, 720, 480 and 320. Approximately 25% of the videos offered (and all of the new uploads) have the 1080p option.

I don’t normally join streaming sites, but one thing I noticed with the older movies could be an issue for some members. Even though you could select a specific scene from a movie, clicking on that scene started streaming the entire movie from the beginning. While it’s inconvenient to have to scrub ahead when you’ve already selected the scene you want, for those with a download cap this means you’re using unnecessary bandwidth to see a scene. This problem doesn’t seem to occur on any movie where the 1080p stream is offered. On those the specific scene you want is queued up.

Another quibble is that the tags don’t work well. There is an extensive list of possible tags so I selected ‘anal’ to get a sense of how many anal DVDs there were. The result was six DVDs. That was disappointing, but not entirely unexpected as Digital Playground does seem relatively more couple-friendly than other studios. But it turns out there is a lot more anal here than the tags revealed. The tags don’t appear to be an effective way to sort scenes.

A definite advantage to the site is that since this is one of the major studios and it’s been around a long time, their cast lists are usually a who’s who of A-list models. They also have a few exclusive models.

Speaking of models, this is a subjective complaint, but the studio tends to shoot larger-breasted women than I prefer. Many of them are natural, but a lot are enhanced. (Teagan Presley, a favorite of mine, has a lot of scenes here but they are almost all post-surgery.) If you like A-list models with bigger breasts though, this site should be considered.

The site isn't perfect but it does have more hits than misses. The streaming-only is likely a deal-breaker for many, but that may be offset by the 50% discount offered through TBP/PU. A membership gives you access to some big-budget porn with some of the biggest names in the business. This is a definite ‘maybe’ for a rejoin but as long as you’re okay with streaming I’d recommend checking it out.

You and I are roughly the same age and for me the golden age of porn was from maybe 1993 to 2000. A lot of the reasons for that are personal and specific in that prior to 1993 porn videos were very hard to get where I lived thanks to draconian laws. But it became available in the early 1990s as porn started to move to gonzo. Gonzo then was a lot more fun to watch then the plot-based stuff of the 1970s and 80s. Those were the days when John Stagliano and Joey Silvera were creating and defining what would become modern porn. I do wish the quality was better, but I'll always be happy with a site that allows me to rebuild the porn video collection from my early days.

(In a way it's like music I guess. I grew up in the 1970s and most of the music I listen to is from that era. I'm not sure I could name five modern, popular bands.)

Going under the knife is the only potential reason that I would stop collecting NEW material from a star. It would never stop me from collecting and watching pre-surgery scenes though. And this isn't a hard-and-fast rule for me either. One of my favorite stars is Aubrey Addams and I continued to collect and watch her scenes after she got some (entirely unneeded) modifications. But those add-ons weren't garish and didn't hurt her overall look, except for a diminishment for guys like me who prefer small breasts.

One example of a model I used to actively seek out was Teagan Presley. Her meteoric rise in the business was entirely predictable given her looks and attitude. But then she took it to the next level and modified her looks substantially to join the ranks of models who do that and then seem to achieve a notoriety rather than fame. I don't collect new Teagan scenes, but the old ones will have to be pried from my cold, dead hands.

I agree with all of the above. The only additional comment I can make is that I'm grateful for TBP/PU.

Pretty much all of the above bug me. My least favorite has to be the randomly generated username and password that I need to copy and past into the site each time.

I wondered about this too but also wondered if it violated the PU rules in asking as it could be considered defeating their DRM. This is a site I've been interested in joining for a long time but wouldn't even consider it because it was streaming only.

Thanks for providing this information.

Downloads can be very slow

One thing I didn't mention in my review (I forgot...) is that at times the download speeds can be very slow. On most sites it is common for me to hit 12-14 MB/sec. On LP I have hit that though the average speed is usually half that. There are times, however, when the download speed is as low as 1 MB/s. Those times correlate with peak download times in Europe rather than in the U.S.

Welcome to PU.

And welcome to the VERY large club of people here who have been scammed by BB. I've said this many times before, but BB is like a minefield: you really need to be careful about where you click because one wrong click can literally cost you. I've also said this many times: BB is a great porn site that could be very successful without all the bullshit they use. It seems to me like they actually want to run scams rather than just run an honest site.

I rejoin occasionally, but I've learned how to step carefully to avoid what you're going through. But on my first time in I got scammed the exact same way you just did.

It does, as long as the site's okay with that. I prefer IDM over Free Download Manager because it offers support (I had a problem with FDM that couldn't be resolved). One other thing I really like about IDM is that it allows me to download just about any streaming video. I download a lot of DIY videos from YouTube and it's handy to have them available for playback even if you don't have an internet connection.

Thanks for the tip. I've heard of clips4sale before but always considered that to be an expensive way to buy porn. But it seems that same thought didn't occur to me when I joined LP...

Been there, done that, and I don't mean that with even a hint of sarcasm. I'll never understand why BB feels the need to screw customers over like this. You read the comments here and it's complaint after complaint of shady practices. I rejoin BB occasionally but I am always careful when I'm a member. As you learned, clicking on a thumbnail may get you a new membership - and one that's hard to cancel.

Don't give up on sites with no independent biller though. 90% of the time that's a good rule to follow but there are some great sites out there that don't have an independent biller that are still honest and easy to cancel. The PU reviews and comments will usually call out shady practices. German Goo Girls is a good example, except that they do have a biller but it happens to be a corrupt one.

I compare it to a company like Kink.com that has some porn that pushes the envelope a bit but still uses the traditional subscription model. The Kink shoots have to cost as much or more than the LP stuff does. Apart from VOD sites I don't know of any other site that bills subscribers like this. And I hope there aren't many others...

I'm glad I joined, because I had wondered about the site for a while, but with the cost per video I likely won't be back.

But it is some damn good porn though...

I agree that this should be a trend that catches on. Most sites use multiple cameras so I'd like to see more user options to see those other views. If the editor wants to show me some guy's hairy ass I could use a different view. I find the woman's facial reactions more arousing than a hairy male ass.

I'm a bit confused about the question. Joining and reviewing are two different things.

A TBP/PU discount on a site I'm interested in will definitely make it more likely that I'll join. A lot of the sites I've joined since becoming a PU member have had discounts.

But when it comes to reviewing and scoring a site I hope that the discount doesn't factor in. I certainly mention the discount as a positive thing, and I note that it improves the overall value of the site, but I try to think objectively about the site itself. Price is only one factor.

For me it is usually a hardcore site with 18-22 y.o petite models. Luckily for me that's the sweet spot of porn so I have no shortage of options. I do step outside that occasionally for different niches though my model preferences never changes.

68.0
Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: - Good mix of models
- Appears to update regularly
- Videos and photos available
- Streaming and downloads
- Options available for streaming and downloads
- A few pregnant models (if you’re into that)
- Supports download managers
Cons: - Model treatment leans to Misogynist side of scale
- Six-hour download limit (but reasonable)
- Some recent uploads are full scenes of older segments
- Some models have only photos
Bottom Line: This site follows the same formula used by several other sites where it appears to be a small operation. The scenes are shot by a mix of POV and tripod mounted cameras and the models are relative unknowns or are at least in the beginning of their career. This style is used successfully by sites like Exploited College Girls and Amateur Allure and with less success by sites like Broke Amateurs. Unfortunately I have to add Broke Models to the lower end of the scale for the same reason that Broke Models is there: while the porn itself is decent the site is flawed. As an armchair critic I’ll never understand why site owners make some of the choices that they do.

First the good news: the site does offer some good porn if you like this niche. I like that the models are relative unknowns and range from nervous to confident. Their looks and body types exist on a range but all are relatively petite. If you like some color in your models you won’t find it here as they are almost all Caucasian with a few Latina women thrown in. For those of you who like pregnant models you’ll find a couple here. (Dani Jensen and Jodi Taylor seem to be this only A-list models here.)

The scenes are structured in the same way used by many of these sites (and I should add that the male’s voice is familiar so he may be behind other sites too). The scene usually starts with the model fully dressed on a bed while she is interviewed. Eventually her clothes come off and the fun begins. The camera work isn't bad, but POV and tripods have limitations so don’t expect award-winning camera work here.

A trait I don’t like in my porn is common here, namely rude treatment of the models. This could be staged though. I contrast the written scene descriptions at Amateur Allure, which may say something like “Here today is a stunningly beautiful model from Florida…” to the written descriptions here which tend to be more like “Today’s skanky whore is from Florida…” The same goes for their on-screen treatment. Admittedly, AA and BM aren't really competitors but I used this for a comparison. I also have to admit that for comparison choosing AA may be unfair as they do use some stunningly beautiful models whereas sites like this seem to recruit from a lower strata in the model hierarchy.

Another trait I don’t like (mostly because it adds nothing to the scene for me) is the use of the ‘surprise’ creampie. This is used a lot at Back Room Casting Couch too. These may be staged, but the premise is that the models aren't expecting to have the guy come in them and some of them aren't happy about it. I think the intended effect is further debasing the models and that isn't something I’m into (unless it’s part of a BDSM scene where it fits into the context).

I can’t say for sure how many actual scenes are available on the site through its safe to say there are about 65 scenes. The reason I can’t say for sure is because of a bit of a fast one the site pulls. With older uploads (and they’re not dated so it isn't easy to give specific details) the scenes were broken into segments. But in some cases the more recent uploads are simply those segments joined together as the complete scene. Apart from passing off an older scene as a new one, I downloaded duplicates without realizing it. Several times I was pleased to see more by a model I liked only to be disappointed that it wasn’t different. The other problem with this practice is that the site has a download cap of approximately 15GB per six hour period. I’m no fan of download limits but I can live with reasonable ones like this. But when there are duplicate scenes that aren't labelled as such that eats into your allotment.

Another problem with the download limit is that while it is supposed to reset automatically after six hours on one occasion it didn’t. Given that there is a message telling the user how to contact support for this very problem I assume it occurs fairly frequently.

I can’t give an exact update schedule but it looks like a new scene is added weekly. The most recent update is a new scene and not one stitched together from older segments.

There are three listed download resolutions though for some reason two of them are the same. I downloaded the highest available (WMV) which came in at 1280x720 and 5000kb/s. They look good on a 24” monitor.

The site offers photos too, and while I’d normally consider that a good thing in this case I was disappointed to see that many of the models only have photos and no videos. The photos are 1800x1200 and are available in zips.

I had no trouble using a download manager.

The bottom line is that this is some good (but not great) porn that’s let down by the site. If you like scenes like this with relatively unknown models in well-shot amateur scenes then this may be worth a look. The price makes it a fair value but I suspect that this will be a one-time-only membership for me.

Reply of Cum Play John's Comment

I agree with you that while the site is great it could be better. My suggestions are to have more scenario-based scenes, even if they're simple. They've shot a few where the female plays a real estate agent or a hotel manager or even as simple as the Samantha Rone scene where she shows up in a bikini wanting to go to the beach. I like the formula they have but would like to see them drop in something different more often.

I'd like to see some BTS stuff. They have a BTS page but all it is are photos and descriptions.

I like the sex as it is but really like it when after the first cum shot the female gets undressed while the male stays dressed. I'm a big fan of that and even though they do it maybe half the time I'd like to see more of it.

I really agree that extended cum play would be great, as would more scenes with multiple men, even up to a bukkake (or, to be more correct, a gokkun).

AA has been my favorite adults site for a long time. I'll take what they give but it would be nice to see a few improvements.

Thanks for the comment. I said it earlier, but it bears mentioning again: when your site takes three experienced porn buyers to figure out you may be doing it wrong. I'm sure their porn is expensive to make - many scenes have multiple models and most feature some extreme acts - but I agree that if they simplified their business model they could improve sales. I first heard about LP on another forum and it was raised by someone who asked a legitimate question as to whether the site even took memberships from outside Europe. That may be a silly question for any other site, but this one is so complex to join and use it was a valid question.
