One detail that concerns a pet peeve of mine. TBP says the watermark is medium sized. I've seen sites where "medium" looks like large and distracting to me. What's the logo here look like? Is it bright or subdued in color? Is it stuck in a corner where (I think) they all should be? An overbearing watermark can really kill an otherwise good video. ARE YOU LISTENING SCORE HD?
A NICE ADDENDUM:
Upon cancelling, I was prompted to explain why I was cancelling and took the opportunity to explain most of the above. Despite my criticisms, the response I got was positive and well-taken, although I will say it doesn't really change how I feel about the site. The horrible economy are what force the ad placement and the inability to update more full-length content. The interviews, I'm told, are just one of those things that people either love or hate. I just happen to be in the hate category. And the tattoos and piercings are just a trend that's growing and getting harder to avoid. I can accept all the responses I got from Billie (webmistress) as very valid and I appreciate the quick response I got from her. But, again, this site is ever so close to what I'm looking for - but it does fall short in my eyes. Maybe time will tell and things here will swing more towards what I'm looking for.

- Bonus video links not valid
- Signed out seemingly at random
> Video is available in 5 downloadable formats MP4 HD 1280x720 @ 4500 kbps, MP4 720x406 @ 755, WMV 1024x576 @ 3100, 3GP 704x576 @ 1500 and 3GP Low 352x288 @ 1200. The in browser flash player features similar resolutions & files sizes.
> The pictures are available in two sizes and both in zip files - 1280 and 2826 long side. But the quality isn't up to today's standards. The larger pics look grainy, like they were upscaled with a basic photo editor. Now including a few Girls Out West picture sets, they're only available as small 1000 pixels long side.
> It's hard to get a fix on the update schedule or figure out how to explain it in print. Sometimes there are two releases on the same day with any mix of masturbation video, an interview, a "cum face" clip or a biography, sometimes it's any one by itself.
> The page-to-page speed looks like it's hampered by some sort of security. Clicking back or forward, I noticed seemingly random numbers preceding the page URLs. I think that also has something to do with my getting logged out at times. That caused some of the downloads I had in queue on my download manager to download to 35 kilobytes, meaning they had to be downloaded again.
Whispering Lily is one of the extra access sites listed as a masturbation social network and a place to chat with other members and browse personals. I'm not too interested in that sort of thing but tried to check it out for the sake of this review. Unfortunately, I kept getting logged out and getting a server error when I tried to get back in. I stopped trying.
ClubStroke.net is a masturbation site featuring guys. Not my thing, so no comments forthcoming. :grin:
SoloTouch.com is the place for masturbation stories - with referral links to still more sites. STOP WITH THE ADS!
The 31 bonus videos all date back to 2004-2007 and haven't changed since my last signup.
The bonus videos feeds show this message: "The website that brought you here is not authorized to link to this video feed". A real WTF moment.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
It seems I didn't wait long enough to sign up here again. The updates still include biographies, "cum face" short 20-30 second videos (like those on Beautiful Agony), and non-nude interviews. While I'm sure there are fans of these, I still don't call them update material - especially the bios which aren't called an update on any other site I've seen. They're still just four pages of questions and answers. It's a masturbation site and that's what I want to see. I'm not interested in knowing what her first time masturbating was like or about the waterfalls in Oregon. I also wasn't too thrilled with having to figure out whether a video was an interview or a full episode. They do list the time of each video, but you have to watch the animated gif preview or go to the screen caps to see what's what.
One of the biggest things that had drawn me to this site in the first place was the girl next door look to the models. I don't like glam, I like average looking. Tattoos, piercings and fake tits were almost non-existent. The latest models are now putting that to rest. Girls with full sleeves, large skull tattoos, nipple and body piercings are distractions I can do without.
I don't know if they've changed or I just didn't notice it my last time in, but the layout and navigation definitely need streamlining. If you can, picture this: The home page shows three columns, "Cumming Soon" preview thumbs on the left. In the middle are Recent Updates, Social Network links, What's Hot, Member Poll and some ads. On the right, Social network links (again), Most Popular Girls, another ad, Most Viewed and Most Popular updates and support links. Way too busy for my taste. There are too many links that jump you to different parts of their network - and far too often they link you to yet another offer to join another site. One minute you're in Yanks, the next you're in WhisperingLily. And damn if there aren't ads on every page. Stop trying to sell me something and give me what I signed up for! And that's what I see as the biggest shortcoming of the site. After over a year since my last time in, I only downloaded about a hundred masturbation episodes. That might sound like a lot, but they're about 10-minute average length and over a full year's worth of content. If the pictures were clearer, I might have saved a few more of those sets as well, but the quality just isn't there. As was noted in another review, this site has a lot of potential but somehow manages to fall short. Even with all the positive aspects I see, the cons really hurt the overall experience. The core material is really good, with (unlike another well-known masturbation site) well-lit, "see-it-all" scenes. I would only recommend this site to a first time subscriber or someone who doesn't mind waiting a long time for the full scenes to build up.
Sometimes it pays to read the fine print. Nosing around the site, I saw something that really caught my eye:
"OUR EASY CANCEL GUARANTEE
Choose a rebilling subscription with the confidence that if you forget to cancel, we will refund your rebill charge if you let us know within 7 days, and haven't used your account since the rebill."
I can't say I've ever seen that offer anywhere else. More sites should do this! I'm sure more than one of us has forgotten a subscription and let it roll over when we really didn't mean to. It would have been nice to have this option.
But... I'm laughing because my love/hate relationship still stands with this site. I've often said that my life is a series of contradictions, a lot like my screen name. This site is no exception. I just reread some of the expired reviews and it never ceases to amaze me how good content can be accompanied by an attitude that says you can't have the least bit of criticism about it without being told how wrong you are. Still a good join - just keep your mouth shut! LOL
I'll mirror slutty's and jb's comments.
If the interviewer is being an asshole, it's fast forward time. And, like jb said, it depends on what they're talking about. I really don't care what color car she drives or what he had for lunch before the shoot.
I think it might do well for your site to familiarize yourself with PornUsers before you send your subscribers on what you call a "mission". We're always looking to expand the membership here and getting new opinions of different sites is always welcome. But sending groups of people here who jot down a few glowing words and leave perfect scores isn't what we do here.
Congratulations on breaking the record for shortest reviews. But I'm pretty sure that there are at least a couple of people on here who would like to see to some more details about the site to back up that perfect score.
Well, damn. Now we have to do a "because". Can't just click Yes and be done with it. : - )
So... Let's see... how to explain this...
I've been telling people for years that I'm a blatant heterosexual - been queer for women all my life. The female form appeals to me on many levels. I guess you could say I have an appreciation of the biology of women. I'm a guy. I can't get pregnant. Women can. I want to see it!
A great review with one omission: Creampie fans should also check this site out.
And, since it's a current topic on the forum, I have to say that I much preferred her before the implants. Not sure if anyone who's signed up there actually noticed, but they have a few pre-surgery episodes (maybe two?) online. Don't know if the scars have healed enough by now that she can finally take the top all the way off, but when I was at the site over a year ago, she was obviously hiding the scars.
Another great review from a newcomer! Welcome, Guy.
This sounds like a site I'd really consider joining one of these days. Last I saw from Lactation Fantasy, they were shooting 1280 videos and the quality was crystal clear - and that was 2011. I also saw that LF featured amateur models and no "names". If you've been on that site more recently, can you compare the models and video quality of LF versus Nadine?
If Khan OKs the listing I requested for Lactation Fantasy, you can enter comments about the site there.
I actually looked at my browsing habits a few months ago. Didn't use a stopwatch, but I figure I'm in at just over 25%. I've found quite a few other topics to rant about, not just porn. Nothing like diversity...
First of all, let me welcome you to PU. It's good to see some new names on here and get some fresh opinions.
Second, it's really nice to see a first review as
detailed and as descriptive as yours. Good job!
But... The third thing I'd like to add isn't as pretty as the first two. :-) I always get a little chuckle out of the phrase 'reality porn'. I know that's how it's labelled but, maybe because I'm older, I haven't seen anything I'd consider "real" come out of this network in years. I certainly can't speak for everyone's sexual experiences, but I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people who don't see women walking into a room, getting naked and groped within two minutes, then screwed in 10 positions in another 15 as anything real. That's the world of gonzo and, unless I've missed something from the BangBros group, that's all they offer. If I'm wrong, please tell me what I'm missing.
I hope you don't take offense at what I've said here. It's not that I'm telling you you're wrong to like what you've seen - It's my disdain for the world of gonzo being called reality that makes me feel like I have to speak up. My overall dislike of the site might have something to do with it, too. But, of course, that's my opinion. You are certainly entitled to yours. :-)
If you think it might be codecs at fault, get a program called GSpot. It'll identify what codecs were used to create a file and tell you whether or not you have it installed on your computer. Once installed and opened, it scans your PC for all installed codecs. You then drag and drop any video file to it and it'll display the results. Best of all, it's free! Available here.

I think the spammers are just generally ramping up their efforts these days. A lot of my family isn't even all that active on the Internet - and definitely not hitting porn sites - and some of them have mentioned how annoying the spam is getting to be. You know it's bad when 1) There's not much to talk about with your family, so you wind up talking about stuff on the Internet and 2) That spamming is so bad that it actually gets mentioned in conversation.
