I visited the site today and found out that Camille is no longer a part of The Art of Blowjob, and has been replaced by Clara and Laura.
I didn't realise this, but Camille had a motorbike accident and broke her leg badly hence no updates. But even before this, she had apparently had fallen out of love with Mike, the webmaster, and her on-screen partner. As you can imagine, they couldn't continue the site together.
So she has left the TAOBJ, with Mike and Sophie (not sure what her relationship is to Mike) looking after the site, and Laura and Clara both being new to the fold. I think they look great, but The Art of Blowjob basically *WAS* Camille in my opinion. She will be greatly missed.
Interestingly, there's also a site called CamilleCrimson.com, which I didn't realise until today. She has also left this site. I think it would be hugely cynical of Mike/Sophie to continue using her name unless she gets a fair share should they decide to keep updating it with archived content. They said the future of the site will be decided in the New Year.
There are blog posts on the sites involved explaining this in more detail, but looking at the PU rules it doesn't look like I'm allowed to post links to this.
As the webmaster, James, has said, there is no longer regional billing which is great news.
Bryci has amassed many HC videos since I've been a member - there's now over 30 with her having sex or giving blowjobs. Really great work. The majority of updates are now hardcore, but there's still a lot of solo stuff.
The only cons are the lack of zips, and the download speeds seem pretty slow, too.
Tried joining KT's site and got an email saying my membership has been 'denied':
"Thank you for your interest in making a purchase from http://www.kt-so.com. For your protection, your transaction has been declined by CCBill but may still be eligible to be approved following some additional action on your part.
"Please call our Consumer Support Department at 888.596.9279, or the International toll free number below if outside of the U.S., to proceed with the process if you have not completed your purchase elsewhere."
I see they have a UK number for CCBill but honestly it's pretty embarrassing and I'd be interested to know why this is the case and if anyone else has had the same problem?
Not sure there's much to say on top of the reviews already here, but here are a few of my thoughts from my membership:
This site is exceptional value for money with the PU discount and has an almost bewildering amount of content. Happy to see most content is downloadable (ie, everything I've encountered so far), and lots of options size-wise (I was concerned every video would be 1gb).
My only complaints are that despite selecting 'female only' I was still seeing shemales crop up in results. Also, too many of the sex scenes involve anal which I'm not a fan of.
Happy that there are lots of models and each seem to have a decent amount of updates, probably averaging around 3-5 for each model (most more, some less). I'm digging Riley Reid. Too many models have horrible, ugly tattoos though.
But yeah, definitely very impressed; by far the best-value site I've ever been a member of, and one I will definitely be rejoining.
I'm not sure if I will do a full review of Throated, but it's a pretty good site, although just hasn't 'clicked' with me. I can't put my finger on why, which is why I'm erring towards not reviewing it.
I think part of the problem is that most girls I've encountered have only done a single scene each - there's hundreds of girls, but as a result they're all a bit anonymous somehow. I prefer to explore a site, find some favourites and invest my time in them, but no sooner do you watch a scene and get into a girl, you realise that's the only scene the site has to offer for her.
Despite this, it's a good site with good content, good quality, good navigation and the fundamentals are all there.
There's only one review in this recent flood that I would call balanced and fair. The others seem disproportionately biased. None of them seem to justify why their scores are so much higher than any of the other sites reviewed here on PU. Most of the pros seem applicable to most sites reviewed on Porn Users.
It makes me angry that their site admin sends people here to write such glaringly unbalanced reviews. It comes across as desperate and because episodes like this ruin the integrity that PU has, I won't be joining the site out of principle.
Tia has now retired and there are no updates scheduled on her website, at least for the time being. She announced to members her retirement several months ago, so compared to most sites where the model just goes AWOL, she has been great at keeping people informed.
My membership's ended on Anna's site, so I thought I'd give my final thoughts. During the month there were 4 gallery updates (none hardcore), and 2 video updates (1 hardcore). Most content was the same kind of stuff you'd get on her old site. The hardcore content was disappointing and in a minority.
Updates still erratic/less frequent - review updated
Have updated the review and reduced the score as unfortunately the updates are less frequent than when I originally wrote the review. While they used to be weekly, now it averages around one update every two weeks (six updates this year, and we're in week 12 of 2013).
The site seems to be updating with new content, still, no reason to suggest they're stringing out old content, but I hope Chica's not losing interest in the site as it really is a fantastic site in every other respect. I think amateur websites really need to update at least weekly.
I saw on another forum that Tia Ling is retiring. Not sure what that means for her site as I'm not currently a member, but thought I'd let people know. Happy for Tia, though, and hope she enjoys her post-HC life :)
Have rejoined Tia's website, and thought I'd add a couple of bits in addition to my review from the last time I was a member.
Firstly, video size. A lot of the videos are huge, at least by my standards - most of the newer ones seem to be around 700mb.
For me, with a finite amount of HD space, this is too large. There's no options for downloading lower-quality videos and no indication of how large they are before downloading. I would definitely increase the rating of this site if there were different quality options available as surely I'm not the only person who is reluctant to download too many 700mb videos?
Secondly, I mentioned in my review about navigation whereby there's a search box and a drop down with different categories that doesn't work if you leave the search box empty. I suggested that this might be a work in progress but this doesn't seem to be the case.
In fact, the category list has shrunk and now only includes one category; 'stockings'. Again, this would really improve the rating of this website if you could filter videos by category.
Other than that, it's a really good website and with these refinements, it would be even better :)
Update schedule a bit more erratic than it used to be
Have rejoined Chica's website. It's still amazing but the update schedule isn't quite as sharp as it used to be. I would say updates average about once every ten days, as opposed to weekly.
I'm not sure Chica promises weekly updates, and all updates are dated in the preview area, so it's not like they're deceiving you, but thought it important to point this out as my review said at the time that updates were pretty much always weekly with Chica apologising on the rare occasion they weren't.
Out of the last ten updates, four were posted after a week, four were posted after 9-10 days, and two after 13 days' wait.
Everything else about her website is great, so hoping she can get back onto weekly updates soon.
Looks promising, but from what I can gather there's not any HC action on it yet. Definitely worth keeping an eye on, though.
Also, apologies for my super-vague review on the left, I reviewed it a while ago before I realised/appreciated how in-depth the reviews here should be - I should have used the comment section for my thoughts really.
