Wow, $ 34.99 a month now! Either their "scary hairy" emphasis is attracting tons of new subscribers and they are cashing in on it, or the number of subscribers has dropped so dramatically that they have to raise the price in order to stay afloat. All other ATK sites appear to have kept the old subscription price.
Today is the first time I tried to return to this site and am getting an error message every time I try to sign in. Coincidence? Or did they cut me off the moment I cancelled?
14/12/13: This comment was premature. I was able to enter this site without problems today. Does not appear to be friendly to Firefox' DTA though, because the attempt to download a zipped picture set failed again until I used the built-in browser downloader.
I am too lazy to do a review at the moment, so, just a few first impressions. Downloads of zipped picture files impossibly slow on this, my first day. (4-6 KB!!!!!). Couldn't get a single set. Download speed of videos was great at my max of 2.35 MB/s but speed within the site itself was ultra-slow. Some models' names listed on their join page cannot be found once you are a member.
A few of the downloaded videos are incomplete and stop in the middle. Many videos feature Russian dialogue and are repetitious as well. Too many models obviously into their twenties already despite the name of the site. Too many anal videos .. a question of taste, I know, but for me that's the death knell of a site and I won't be back. And what the heck am I doing in a site that doesn't feature mature women??? I guess the price looked right but I am on my way to cancel.
P.S: This might not be of importance to most but I tend to watch videos on my smart TV through a memory stick but they cannot be watched that way. The sound codec for their wmv files is missing.
Here is how the SCORE webmaster replied to my comment below Pat's:
"We have listened to your comments and all our postings are now available for download on all our websites" but here it comes: "with the exception of HD content which is only available for 5 weeks after the day of posting."
Then later on he/she replied to Pat this way (paraphrased:) "Videos can be downloaded from all sites." Which was always the case! Question still is: since this site practically had HD contents right from the beginning (if I remember correctly) can I now go all the way back and download ALL HD videos or not????
I am happy to report that the previews of the videos and full picture sets are back! This is one site that keeps drawing me back to it, even though lately I have only been peeking, but judging by the updates things are getting better for my taste. I notice quite a few sets where the model actually wears panties and bra and some even start fully clothed. Might be time to re-join soon, as long as the webmaster doesn't decide to start including b/g material. :-)
One thing I used to like about this site was that you could look at a whole set (at least the thumbs) of pictures, or a short video preview, and make up your mind, based on the teasers, if you wanted to join or not. It's gone. All you get now is a quick trip to the sign-up page. Really too bad because it was those previews of whole sets (and glimpses of a video) that made the site different and classy.
They remind me of myself, five years ago. I had subscribed to an erotic site for the first time and it blew me away. I let the webmaster know how much I liked her (his) site and Abby (Winters) suggested that I publish my high opinion in Porn Users. Of course, I did not do a review but made a comment instead. I did not see myself as a shill for the site and saw nothing wrong with it. If I remember right, quite a few climbed all over me for that. BTW, I am still grateful to Abby Winters for sending me here.
One thing is that many videos just give you a green screen when streaming, another problem is that the streaming has been unusually jerky for days. The download speed as well has been well below average for the past few days, No, no other sites do this to me. Maybe a bigger server is finally required? The reason I comment here is because VB have not responded to the complaints about these issues when they were brought up on the site.
I got my hopes up when my eyes lit on all the "strip" tags underneath the scenes, contained in this site, until I realized that every site I have ever belonged to is a strip site by their standards if it means that a model takes only a couple of items of clothing off.
"Strip," to me, means more than taking off a bikini top and bottom, or a bra and panties. Another site that can't quite deliver to my taste. This is just a personal observation, since they call themselves a glamour site and not one that majors in full strips.
Sorry, TBP, I could not subscribe to this site through you no matter how many times I tried (see comment below) so I purchased a subscription through Epoch directly.
First impression: 12888 videos with ho-hum contents. Only the later videos are true HD while many are 640x480p. I wanted to subscribe to a Japanese site because people are always raving about the "weirdness" of some JAV porn and I was dying to find out how weird it gets. :-)
Well, if you are looking for different, don't bother. It is basic porn, mostly masturbation or oral, wearing Japanese faces.
This is made worse by the abundance of those over-sized hiuge wands that might delight the ladies but manage at the same time to hide what you want to see.
Another purely PERSONAL observation (and disappointment:) far too few really mature women in the lot! I looked under mature and MILF and most wouldn't be much past their early thirties.
The final puzzler: When looking at my personal settings I find that I have a "standard HD account" with the possibility to upgrade! I didn't dare hit that button but am wondering what I would be upgrading to if I did. Maybe all that "weird" stuff I couldn't find? There is no mention anywhere, when first subscribing that there are any standard and higher grade plans.
If you like Japanese girls (and I do), it's not too bad a site, but it is leaving me disappointed because of the sameness of much of the material. A younger person might enjoy it but, trouble is, I've seen it all.
Just wanted to see what a site with "streaming only" has to offer and cannot connect to their server, I tried their sister sites and all of them appear to be down! I wouldn't be terribly upset if they stayed down because no price is low enough for me to ever subscribe to a site that does not allow downloads.
I tend to keep my eye on this site because I usually re-subscribe when enough updates have accumulated to make it worth my while. However I have noticed, to my regret, that they appear to be running out of mature models because quite often the same model is featured two, three times in the space of a couple of weeks. Can we expect some new models soon or are they just too hard to find?
I have now tried on two separate days to join this site. Biller is Epoch but I get no response once I click "complete transaction." It couldn't be my credit card, Epoch accepts it all the time. Has this happened to anyone else?
There is a clear cut division between those who love full body hair and those who like things more moderate eg. possible pit and pussy hair but no more than that.
Just to make a decision easier for either side here is a clear statement of intent by ATKowner addressed to someone who expressed a desire to see an otherwise gorgeous model without her heavy leg hair:
ATKOwner to xxxx:
I doubt very much if Monica would consider shaving her legs and to be honest with you we would not pass on such a request to her as we are about promoting hairyness in women. So we generally encourage women to grow out if they are willing but not the other way around.
I was just reminded of this great British site I have subscribed to twice in the past and would like to re-subscribe but having moved on to downloading HD quality movies only I wonder if they are now available on this site. Thanks for an answer.
PS. Sorry, should have gone to our TBP review first. I see that their movies are now available in 1080p which is great. So let me rephrase: How long have they been updating their videos with a 1080p HD option? For a year, six months? Or shorter?
On the 25th of November I wrote: "Going from glory to glory" because, as compared to another hairy site, this one appeared to have gone back to being moderate when it came to the publication of "hairy legs" sets.
So, here I am, just about to re-subscribe because I really like the new models, but to make sure I don't waste another subscription on a site I get nothing out of any more I do a quick search under hairy legs (my pet peeve) and get 17 updates since Jan. 2, 2013!! SEVENTEEN hairy legs sets/videos in 16 days.
This sort of puts an end to the standard exhortation by web masters that "if you don't like hairy legs you can always look at something else," because 17 updates in half a month is more than just the occasional nuisance that I can choose to ignore, it is a sizable chunk of the updates. This is insane.
From now on "shaved" is in as far as I am concerned .. with a sad farewell to two of my favorite hairy sites .. and one of my favorite web masters ... who, no doubt, does what is best for the bottom line but is no longer able to please a moderate "hairy bush" lover like me.
The usual disclaimer: My discontent is in no way a reflection on the value of the site itself. The material is still top quality, the rate of updates is still excellent .. if you love hairy legs go for it. You can't lose, unless Basil's search engine was off!
This is written with more than a tinge of sadness because their main competition, as well as this site, were staples in my diet for years and it is like losing old friends. But times and tastes change, so what can you do?
Happy to see some lingerie sets in the recent updates.
This is another site I check almost daily for their latest updates and am pleased to see that they actually updated with some sets that feature lingerie during the past week. I am hoping that great day will come, and soon, when I see enough updates like it so that I can return to what once was my MAIN mature site. There is nothing like a mature woman wearing mature clothing, including panties, bras, stockings and garter belts :-)
I like to keep my eye on this site, just to see if it is worthwhile re-subscribing, and noticed that the latest updates listed on the tour are from December 29, 2012. Could a member please clue me in if the updates are still on a daily basis. Thanks.
While this is an excellent site haters of enhanced breasts should be warned that out of approx. 400 scenes only 90+ contain natural breasts. This percentage goes for pretty well all of NA's mature sites. I currently subscribe to NA and am happy with my short term trial but this is a fact that has to be mentioned.
... because they feature so many models with fake breasts, especially in their mature sites, but have, despite my better judgement, taken the step of subscribing in order to take advantage of their exceptional offer of $7.95 for a one month trial. Surely there had to be SOMETHING that would appeal to me in this huge site.
First impression: for a one month subscription this is really a good deal, despite my previous whining, because they have an excellent search engine. By clicking on "natural breasts" in their Cougar site, for instance, I came up with 29 hits and this was only in one site. I also found two of my favorites, Rayveness and Faye Reagan under "natural."
Overall, natural breasts may be scarcer than hen's teeth but you still get more than your money's worth just by clicking in the right places. So, NA, my apologies .. in my past criticisms I did throw out the baby with the bath water. :-)
Edited 20/12/2012, 22:49 AST:
hodayathink tells me that the percentage of natural and enhanced breasts in the whole site is roughly 50/50. I will take his word for it, therefore consider the comment above modified. Naturals are NOT scarcer than hen's teeth! :-)
This site has changed almost beyond recognition. After having signed in you have to move cautiously, as in a mine field, because you are first of all being redirected to a page that offers all kinds of upgrades and subscriptions to other sites. After you find your way back to the latest updates then you'll detect that by clicking on certain ones for a download you will have to unlock a different site first for an additional $19.95 a month.
The promised 1080p videos in the tour pages are probably on one of the sites you have to add (unlock) and this is way too easy to do. Just click in the wrong spot and this site will be automatically added, using the credit card information you gave to Bangbros! Tiptoe very carefully through the Bangbros. tulips!
PS. Not being careful is probably what happened to whowho (comment below.)
P.P.S. I am so disgusted with the underhanded way this company is doing business now that I will let the remaining 27 days lapse without a return visit. No hardship in any case because I subscribed for the non-existent 1080p videos in the first place.
P.P.P.S. I finally got an answer from support but, as usual with bigger sites, it was a generalized answer that didn't give me the info I was looking for. It told me how to download an HD video, something I already knew, but didn't tell me where to find the advertised 1080p ones. I wrote them back, wanting the specifics on that one but never received an answer. And there it stands.
