Pretty much all of the above for me. But since I found TBP/PU my purchases have been a lot less risky.

Changes at Amateur Allure

As of July 28, 2014 Amateur Allure has partnered with four other sites to offer some licenced scenes. Currently there are ten scenes each from Fucked Hard 18, Gloryhole Swallow, Jules Jordan and Mr. POV. According to the announcement more will be added each week. A Fucked Hard 18 scene will be added on Mondays, a Jules Jordan scene will be added on Tuesdays, a Mr. POV scene will be added on Wednesdays and a Gloryhole Swallow scene will be added on Thursdays. The usual weekly Amateur Allure scene will be uploaded on Fridays. Iím familiar with all of those sites and the uploads seem to be older material.

Iím a big fan of Amateur Allure and it has been my all-time favorite porn site since I first joined back in January. I hope that these changes will bring in more members that will then allow the crew to continue to make their exclusive scenes. It certainly adds a lot of value to a membership even the site does cost more than the average site membership.

If anyone from the site reads this Iíd like to make two suggestions that might also be effective in bringing in more revenue:

Remaster the hundreds of older scenes that are already on the site. They are currently only available as QuickTime videos and are broken down into three segments. Iím not technically minded, but if it was possible to stitch the three segments together into one full scene and convert them to a more common file type that would be a great bonus for members. The video quality would obviously be lower but having better access to the older scenes would be great.

Consider a loyalty discount. Once currency is converted the membership costs me $40 per month and with four scenes being added per month that means that I cancel my membership and rejoin for a month every three or four months to keep the cost per scene more reasonable. If they dropped the monthly price to perhaps $20 for rebills Iíd probably just sign up and stay a member for as long as the siteís around. I suspect that most members are like me in that the first time you join there is extensive downloading going on but subsequent memberships are low use since all Iím doing is getting a dozen or fewer updates.

Agreed. Another annoying choice is how he splits material between Jules Jordan and The Ass Factory and expects $30 for each of those memberships.

I just rejoined this site and it appears that the issue is that the links time out very quickly. I didn't have any problem with downloads failing but I couldn't queue up scenes in my download manager like I used to be able to here and still do with most sites. It means more work to get the scenes you want and it is annoying but it's still some great porn for those of us who like hardcore with a harder edge.

Didnít there used to be a TBP discount for Jules Jordan?

Maybe Iím dreaming this up, but didnít we used to get a $19.95 discount price when joining through TBP? Not having that discount will definitely mean I donít rejoin here as often as usual.

Links have a short lifespan

I donít recall having this problem the other times Iíve been a member here, but all the download links seem to time out after ten minutes or so. This includes any links that you queue up with a download manager but also includes the links on the actual scene pages. I prefer to open the scenes I want in separate tabs and then download them from there, but after a few minutes the page needs to be reloaded to make the links active again. Itís not a deal breaker, but it is annoying.

The issue about having the 24 hour wait for me is that if I get cut off at 9PM one night then I may not have time to go on that late the next day so my wait time becomes much longer than 24 hours. Download limits really bug me...

To make matters worse, their download limit seems to be arbitrarily imposed and can even change from day to day and user to user. This is counter-intuitive, but when you download HD files you can download more. I was often able to download up to 40GB per day the last time I was there as long as I stuck to HD files. The problem is that there often isn't any consistency so what I experienced a few months ago may not be the case now. But try the HD if you have the capacity and you may find you can download more.

85.0
Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: - A small collection of scenes featuring some of the most petite U.S.-based models working today
- Ultra HD for those who want it
- TBP Discount
- Supports download managers
- Options for downloads
- Simple and effective site layout
- Photos available (single and zip)
Cons: - ĎTinyí doesnít just describe the models
- 4K may be the answer to a question few are asking
- Updates are irregular
- Could / should be bundled with other sites until it grows
Bottom Line: Iíll get this out of the way first: I have no need for 4K videos so I didnít download any to keep. I view most of my porn on a 24Ē monitor so going that large just doesnít give me any advantage. When you factor in the file size the negligible benefit for me in viewing is offset by the extra space needed on a hard drive. For those who are interested though, the 4K files come in at 4096x2160, 10,000kb/s and 23fps.

And Iíll get the siteís main drawback out of the way now too: Ďtinyí doesnít just describe the models on the site. There are currently only 12 videos uploaded as I write this. A secondary drawback is that the update schedule is irregular so I canít give any indication of how quickly the site will grow. The site started in early May and by the end of May eight scenes were available. No scenes were uploaded in June and they have since added four scenes in July (as of the 15th). But since the site is affiliated with a large online porn company I suspect that they will continue to grow.

The scenes they do have are very well shot and presented with excellent production values. The models are all mainstream porn models and theyíre a whoís who of petite models working today. These are: Ava Taylor, Chloe Amour, Chloe Foster, Dakota Skye, Dillion Harper, Emma Stoned, Jenna J Ross, Kacey Jordan and Kacy Lane. Eleven of the scenes are b/g and one is b/g/g.

All of the scenes are vaginal only. Iím not sure what constitutes couples porn, but it is fair to say that these are not rough scenes where the model endures some hard sex, though some may see it this way since the site does flaunt petite models with large men, so it isnít true artcore either. The scenes range from approximately 20 minutes to about 35 minutes.

The site is simple and effective, which it should be since it is this small. There are search functions which may prove useful as the site grows. Each scene opens into a separate page where a trailer is available, as are screencaps and photos. The photos are available as a zip but the screencaps arenít. There is streaming available in SD and HD, and downloads are available in MP4 format (4K, 1080p, 720p and 480p), in 480p MPG1 and as WMV in 720p. There is some way to view the scenes that will satisfy most users. I downloaded the 720p MP4 which arenít exactly that. They come in at 1280x674 and 23fps. Oddly, the bitrates vary widely from scene to scene with some being as low as 3,000 kb/s and some being as high as 10,000. Subjectively they look great even though the numbers are a bit lower than competitor sites.

The site supports download managers and I had no issue with links timing out in an unreasonably short time.

The site offers a TBP discount which is a good thing because until it grows it would be a poor value at the full price. The same company has 61 other sites listed here (Casting Couch X being the only one Iím familiar with) and it would be a good idea to bundle it with other company sites until it grows.

The bottom line is that at $18 for 12 scenes (with more to be added, presumably) the site likely isnít a good enough value for the casual user. I think it represents fair value at the discounted price since this is a niche I like and many of the models here are those who are on my list of current favorites. I think the real measure of value here will be how quickly the site grows and how close they are able to stick to their premise of petite models while growing the site at a reasonable pace.

I'm surprised at your comment that there is a lot of anal stuff and ATM there now. I was a member earlier this year and don't remember there being much anal. But as an anal fan I may not notice it as much as someone who doesn't like it.

Beware the pre-checked cross-sell!

Yes, I know that I should have noticed the warning on the TBP page, but I didn't. And to make matters worse the biller (FX Billing) lumps your agreement to buy adult material in with the cross-sell. I'm not sure if you could even join without getting the cross-sell because you need to tick the box to affirm you're legal to buy porn.

Not knowing that I had signed up for another site, I also didn't cancel it right away and got rebilled today. The site is NS Premium, which has some affiliation with New Sensations. Here's the thing though: after being charged $40 on the rebill I go to the site to find out that when I try to download anything I get a message that I'm not a valid member and that I now need to buy an upgrade!

I had an online chat with the biller and they've not yet agreed to refund the $40. My preference would be a refund, but I'd even accept a functioning membership for that price.

Make sure you try uncheck the box if trying to join Bikini Dare. If you can't join without accepting the cross-sell, then don't join Bikini Dare at all. It isn't worth the hassle.

I selected yes, but for me price is only one element of value. If a site charges more than average but offers a lot of exclusive content with high production values, then that will be part of the comments I make in the review. I always try to give some objective reasons why I think a site is good value even if it does have a high price.

Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: - Youíre only out $9.95 on joining
- Videos and photos
- Some attractive unknown models
- It is updating
Cons: - Streaming only
- Small site
- Old, old, old videos
- Some unattractive unknown models
- Photos but no zips
Bottom Line: Two things came to my mind not long after logging into this site for the first time. First, if I were to create a website it would definitely look a lot like this. Seriously, I have no knowledge or skills in creating website nor do I have access to anything decent to put on such website, so it would look terrible and have almost nothing to offer. Second, as Warren Buffet said, itís good to learn from your mistakes but itís better to learn from other peopleís mistakes. Thatís the real value of Pornusers: no one else needs to make the same mistake I did in joining this site.

This site says that itís affiliated with Mike South, a man-about-porn for many years. Heís in all of the videos (and if you want some creepy insight into this site, for whatever reason he seems to be wearing the same underwear in all the scenes).

In the interests of being fair Iíll address the positive aspects of this site first: a couple of the scenes feature beautiful women in sexual situations. There are facials in every scene. Unfortunately, the good news ends here.

Now for the bad news:
ē I may have assumed too much, but with a site called ďStripper FacialsĒ I expected some element of stripping (pole dancing, lap dancing) and facials. There is only one scene I can find with any of that. The rest of the scenes are billed as strippers getting facials. The problem with that is that this is conceptually no different from waitresses or nurses getting facials. It still looks like standard porn. For someone looking for stripper themed porn, this isnít it.
ē The preview pages are misleading. A prospective member is told there are three different file resolutions: ďHi Def, Standard Def and Dial up sized full length videos.Ē Sounds good. But once inside only one video is offered in anything close to HD. For the other scenes, the HD and SD both come in at 720x480 but the bitrate is higher for the ďHDĒ file (2500 vs 900).
ē How long ago was 720x480 at 2500 kb/s considered HD? While the site boasts of regular updates, most of those updates appear to have been shot in the last millennium when 720x480 might have been HD. Seriously, given the looks of the models and the video quality these videos were likely shot a long time ago.
ē Many of the models are just marginally attractive. Part of this is that so many of them have the typical big hair, heavy makeup look of the 1990s, but part of it is also that many of the models arenít all that attractive.
ē There are currently only 30 scenes uploaded but two of those have broken links.
ē The videos are streaming only.
ē There are photos, but no zips

The site does promise updates and it does deliver. There have been several updates since I joined but unfortunately those updates are videos that are like the others that are here: they have a distinct look of having been recorded as long as twenty years ago. For the Ďnewí uploads, there is no improvement in video resolution.

The site itself is laid out in a simple way, which Iíll never fault, but the overall look harkens back to the days when we all suffered with dial-up and site design was necessarily simple. Simple is one thing, outdated is another. This look is outdated.

The bottom line here? Even at a low monthly price of $9.95 this is far from a good value. The overall concept is one which could be done so well but it isnít here. If the site doesnít plan to shoot new stripper facial scenes with modern equipment and offer them in true HD (with downloads) then the least they could do is provide a time machine to take the members back in time to when this could have been a great site. My estimate is somewhere around 1999 would be about right. But hey, consider that you could get filthy rich selling Y2K fears.

I'm glad I could help you out. I do think that VB passed its prime a long time ago. I think the only reason they can offer such low prices is that they upload crap and only in low resolutions by today's standards.

Like you, I'll celebrate if Kink ever offers some kind of network access.

I wish I had the answer on costs for you, but in all the comments and reviews it seems no one, including myself, ever noted that. But some of the more recent information there does suggest that the pro-rated pricing for the add-ons is still in effect, which means that you can control what you pay provided you cancel your main membership after a month. If you're confident that you can get all the Kink scenes you want in a few days then sign up to Kink with three or four days left on your VB membership and you'll only be charged for those few days remaining. But if you forget to cancel you'll be charged full price for both VB and the add-on at the start of the next monthly billing cycle.

I don't remember what the file resolutions were either, but I can say that I have since deleted all of them. I'm guessing 540x480 or somewhere around there.

I agree with you that it would be a great idea for Kink to offer some 'buffet' kind of membership where a member could access a specific number of scenes across all their sites for a set fee. One thing about Kink though, is that if you join one site you get a discounted price to the others. But that's still an expensive proposition. Kink does offer some form of pay-per-scene but I don't know how much it is per scene. If you're really only interested in a few scenes that may be a cost-effective way to get HD scenes at a reasonable price.

I don't have the answer for you, but the last time I was a member there the add-on 'channels' were pro-rated to the remaining length of your first month. So if you joined VB on July 1 and also joined the Kink channel on July 1 you paid the full price. But if you waited and joined Kink on July 20 you were only charged for the one-third of the month that you used. That was valuable if you were only staying a month. Subsequent months you'd be billed full cost for both VB and the Kink channel.

One major caveat, VB really seems to have changed their business model. They don't seem as transparent as they once were and they could have changed the billing practices for the channels.

One advantage though is that the Kink channel gives you access to shoots from several different Kink sites so you can get samples from a lot for a lot less money. The biggest disadvantage is that the file resolutions on the Kink channel are far lower than what you can get on an actual Kink site.

I hope this helps.

It may only be symbolic, but I think asking Rick and Khan to delist a site that has a proven issue is a good idea. While there may not be too many of us who are active on this site I'm confident that there are thousands who rely on it for purchasing decisions. If TBP/PU could delist a site it may have an impact.

Consider the recent delisting of German Goo Girls after members repeatedly complained of fraudulent billing. Sure, the webmaster weighed in each time promising to fix it, but until the site chose a reputable biller it needed to be delisted.

Khan's right on this. I see the discount when I click 'join' so the most likely issue is a cookie from an earlier visit. Clear your cache and you should be fine.

I'm no fan of caps either, but one this low is a real pain in the ass. What's especially annoying is that they offer HD scenes that will reach the cap very quickly. Their justification for it is that it prevents some heavy users from hogging the bandwidth but if that happens at this site why isn't it an issue at other sites too? And isn't throttling a better solution for those rare times when there might be a lot of users on the site? I'll never be a fan of caps, but I can live with reasonable ones. This one isn't reasonable.

Thanks for weighing in on this.

Khan - I owe some apologies - to you and to Amateur Allure. I have several memberships on the go and when I sorted through this following your comment I realized that I attributed the cross-sell to the wrong site. The cross-sell came when joining Casting Couch X.

Is there a way you can remove this entire thread as it is both misleading and irrelevant? If not, I'll add a new thread with a mea culpa to make it clear that this was my error and nothing to do with Amateur Allure.

Agreed. Once your collection reaches a certain size then the ability to search effectively becomes important. Besides carefully cataloguing the actual sites/scenes/DVDs/models I keep a Word document that lists everything so I have two ways to search. On top of that, I flag scenes I like by creating a shortcut to it and then when I plug a drive in I can search the term "shortcut" and up come all my favorite scenes on that drive.
