I got a mailer to join this site at a discount - hadn't been a member in quite a while, and the price was right, so...
My first attempt was through the VSX biller and it told me that it wasn't going through, for some reason. So I tried with a different credit card. The site directed me through a different biller and I had no problem joining. A while later, I noticed that I got "Thank you for joining" e-mails from both billers. That wasn't good. I filled out a form on the site's Support, gave my details. I think I had an answer in 10 minutes that they had confirmed the 2 billings, cancelled one, let me know which membership was going to be ongoing.
Great prompt classy professional Customer Service - you gotta love it!
I periodically click on the "Join Now" button at some sites just to see if they have a bargain - I've been pleasantly surprised every once in a while. Mainly 1 By Day's price just keeps going up. But today I noticed that they have a new promo - Join Now and get a limited time membership to their "main lesbian site", Euro Girls On Girls.com
30 day membership of 1 by day gets 1 week of the other site
60 day membership gets 2 weeks,
90 day membership gets 3 weeks
150 day membership gets 1 month
yearly memberhip gets 2 months
This is the kind of promo that, to me, screams "We're cheap fucks and we hate giving bonuses", but others may like it.
This site USED to have some of the most unique content on the internet - shot-on-location craziness with gorgeous women with perfect bods being pursued by evil prison guards or zombies or whatever and fighting back with martial arts or big guns. Then they did some really wonderful surreal stuff with Susana Spears as a drunk Super-woman and other such stuff.
At a certain point, they started licensing material and throwing it up as "ActionGirls Recruits", which was fine as a supplement to their original material, but now they seem to have gone the "Babelicious" route where it's just "Throw Something Up As An Update And Call It A Day".
Where once this site was doing some of the most original material on the internet, that seems to be all in the past. What original vids they do now could have been done by Playboy or any paint-by-numbers "erotic vid" site. And they have even stopped regular posting of those. The most original stuff they do now is shoot girls against weird blurry backgrounds and call them "jungle" shoots, etc.
I haven't been a member of this site for a while, but I check their content fairly often. It's worth nothing that they seem to be widening the range of the vids they have been posting lately. They have been posting un-censored no-mosaic vids - probably only a handful on the site so far. These used to be quite a rarity with Japanese porn and only involved porn-stars past their prime, but Maria Ozawa broke that mold, doing un-censored vids at the height of her career, and more top Japanese porn babes followed in her wake. They are also posting more extreme vids - like the studio, Attackers, and some of the human toilet vids that have become a recent fetish in Japan - Maria Ozawa did one of those a few years ago, as well.
Ya know, you can have a site that has great updates on a regular basis, but if you click on a page and it takes forever to load - and then you finally get to the page where you can download a vid and the damned thing times out before you can even START your download, what difference does it make?
It's just waving great unattainable material in front of a horny member's face and saying "Ha Ha! See what you could have if we actually had our shit together enough to have a site that worked?"
Actionjav.com used to have what to me was a confusing pair of membership options - VIP membership was a monthly join of $34.95/month and gave you access to vids in RealPlayer and WMV format. Then they had a DIVX membership that was a bit less expensive, as I recall, and gave those members a set limit of gb to download within a month. Those members were only able to download vids in the DIVX/avi format. Once those members hit their download limit, or the 30 days, whichever came first, their membership was over.
Actionjav.com has now made a change to one membership option - $34.95/month - with access to all content. Those members who had purchased the DIVX membership will have their membership converted to a monthly membership - I don't know if it will automatically renew at the higher price or not. But they might gain a lot if they have been frenetic downloaders and were about to reach their limit and now have the remainder of the 30 days to download to their heart's content without a download limit.
On the downside, they have backed off from their 5 vid update schedule/day - they now promise 4 or 5 updates per day.
I don't know of another site in this genre promising and delivering 4 or 5 complete recent jav's per day, so they haven't killed their site, just making things less confusing membership-wise and saving themselves a bit of money by cutting back a bit on the updates.
Their only price option - $34.95/month - is rather high, but their update rate - 4 or 5 complete vids - not just scenes - a day - is the highest I've seen for sites in this genre and they don't seem to be updating with junk either.
Because they update at such a high rate they have a "become a reviewer" program where members can register to review vids that are awaiting reviews, then they get some amount of credit for making those contributions to the site.
Not being a member, I don't know how much credit reviews earn, but it could be a good way to bring the high price down to earth while taking advantage of their excellent rate of updates, which is far in excess of Asia Movie Pass (the bukkake vid site), 1 vid per day, or jsexnetwork, which is erratic in their updates, but averages 1 per day, I believe.
A recent back-and-forth with another veteran PU brought to mind once again how this site gets short shrift in an odd way. It's rarely mentioned in the ALS Director's blogs. It hasn't been added to the MetArt Network as ALS Scan, it's more high-profile sister site has. And yet it features models that are just as hot.
I'd been wondering what happened to the shoot that ALS had done with Jessyca/Jessica Swan, an incredibly hot young Hungarian babe that Alex had mentioned once in the Director's blog as having been shot, then not talked about since. I was amazed when I glanced at ALS Angels for the first time in a long time today and I see that their new update is none other than Jessica Swan.
Time for me to re-join - and the cost of joining - 1 month $24.95, 2 months, $34.95, 3 months $44.95 and damned generous given ALS's quality.
Alex has been posting speak peek photos of the sets that he shot of Andie Valentino just this weekat ALS Scan. They are absolutely phenomenal. In my opinion Andie Valentino is one of the most ravishing, beautiful women to ever have taken off her clothes for the camera - just an awesome body with enough unique-ness facially to make me want to see more and more and more of her.
I hated - no, I detested - what Twisty's did to Andie's photosets. They must have thought she was the homeliest woman alive to have given her the blurry-face kabuki treatment they did. Alex's pics of Andie are the antidote to that horrendous crap. I can't WAIT to see the full sets posted at ALS Angels (the big-boob sister site of ALS Scan).
Knowing that I'm a long-term member of ALS Scan, Alex asked me to do some beta-testing of ALS's new pay-per-scene site. Being more into perusing full sites, I have to confess that I didn't get around to it until the new site was already open to the public. I won't quit my day-job.
But the site is open, so I figured that I'd get my ass moving and see what my impressions are.
First of all, it's a very clean un-cluttered design, unlike MANY sites these days that have so much advertising for other sites that it's hard to even see the material that you joined the specific site for. This site doesn't even advertise ALS Scan - which it might want to do in a non-intrusive way, since many who discover ALS through this site might want to see more.
At this site, you buy ALS Dollars with a credit card and then you purchase individual scenes - photo-sets or vids.
The price-point strikes me as very generous to the consumer. Where a month's join to ALS Scan would be $29.95, you can go to this site and say, "Oh, man - I want to see Amy Brooke" and buy a single "normal res" photo set of approx 300 pics at $0.99 or a single "high-res" photo set at $1.49 - or you can get a bundle of all of the photo-sets at a slightly higher price in either normal or high-res.
For vids, you can buy a "stream" of a vid - no download for $0.99, or a 720 download - DiVX or MP4 HD at $1.49 each or a download at WMV 1080 for $1.99/scene or again you can buy a bundle or the vids at any of the resolutions - the bundle of the 6 vids at the highest res is $7.16.
All the vids have pretty full descriptions of what type of action is included.
It's a pretty great alternative to a full-site join. I know that I've definitely been excited to see everything that a site has of a particular performer and here you could get all of ALS Scan's material of Amy Brooke at just under $10.00 - 1/3 the price of joining the site for 1 month.
I looked at one of the 720 MP4 vids and one of the 1080 vids I downloaded (I was provided with some ALS bucks in my account by the site for beta-testing purposes) and the 1080 vid looked more sumptuous to me on my system, but the 720 vid looked excellent at fill-screen mode. It wasn't exactly a 1-to-1 comparison, since the 1080 vid was an outdoor scene and the 720 vid was an indoor vid.
I'm also impressed with how current the material is being posted on this site. They have all of the Gigi Rivera material that ALS Scan has posted, so they seem to be seriously committing to this site as a consumer alternative to joining the monthly site as opposed to doing some "wait 90 days until you can get new material On Demand".
ALS has created a very appealing site here in my opinion and made it very easy for people to use it and enjoy it.
Would I give up my membership to ALS Scan and just go the On-Demand route?
Not likely - with ALS Scan having updates every single day - pic sets of approx 300 pics or vids that average 30 minutes - that site has the edge for me
ALS Scan is now officially part of the Met Art Network. This means that the site finally has a complete make-over - very well done, in my opinion - and, though there were predictions of glitchy connection speeds, the vid I downloaded came through smooth as one could want at over 2.5 mb/second.
If you're a member of Met-Art, you can now add ALS Scan to your Met Art membership for only $10/month.
ALS Scan has started releasing material from their latest Caribbean trip. They continue to set the bar incredibly high for creating a setting where their models want to go at each other in wonderfully erotic ways.
The first vid released is centered on Tanner Mayes & Blue Angel. They're all sitting around a table, looking a bit dazed, stoned and bored when Tanner goes off, gets a dog collar and leash and puts it on Blue Angel because "she needs to go for a walk." The expression on Blue Angel's face when Tanner comes over to her is absolutely fucking priceless - it's one of those "I love you and I'm game for anything" looks that's impossible to fake. Blue Angel's fucking gorgeous and when she's really into what she's doing, it's a case of - one of the best models alive at her absolute best.
The pics they've released so far are pretty damned awesome as well. And Alex has said that they have more material from this trip than any previous, so if you're a fan of hot girl/girl material, I highly recommend this stuff.
One caveat: They're venturing into boy/girl action with this trip. There's one bj pic in the samples released so far and, according to the Director's Blog, there's at least one boy/girl fuck scene that was filmed. So a word of warning if you're someone that doesn't want to enter a site where guys touch girls. For anybody else..
It's a bit unexpected to see a scene with an intense dom quality at ALS Scan, so I'm pretty thrilled to see the new Hailey Young fem dom of Tanner Mayes. I fell for Tanner from the first moment I set eyes on her - she's like the ultimate little fuck nymph. Hailey I wasn't a fan of until I saw her energy in the first beach scene they posted of Hailey with Jana Jordan.
Hailey's a great dom and unlike most fem dom scenes, there's a great antagonistic energy with Tanner's brattiness resisting the domination. Bruce Seven used to go for that kind of dynamic in some of his scenes with Careena Collins, but most dom scenes these days are much more "know your role" where the subs just take it without resistance.
Fans of fisting, pee play, fem dom would definitely like this scene. I'll be interested in hearing about how other ALS Scan fans like it - I'm obviously pretty thrilled.
I've said it before, I'll say it again. ALS Scan is my favorite porn site - and they just proved why again with the first vid up of the 2009 Caribbean trip - 35 minutes of non-stop, unedited crazy girl/girl action - so much that this vid couldn't even stay on a steaming Anita Pearl/Blue Angel pussy eating episode while it was following crazed Jana Foxy/Jordan cavorting with Hailey Young. I love scenes that turn me into an instant fan of girls I wasn't a fan of before - that's how it is with this one. I didn't care much for Hailey Young before - now I adore her for her ability to keep up with the energy of Jana and urge her on to more - the highlight is Jana fisting Hailey with Jana kind of freaking out at the sensation and Hailey grabbing her wrist, forcing further in, screaming "Deeper! Deeper!!" Un-fucking-believable!! ALS's girl/girl stuff make most other sites girl/girl stuff look completely lame, in my opinion. There's just an unconstrained quality that is so wonderful that I've only seen equalled with some of Evil Angel's wildest stuff. But somehow ALS does it without the rough elements, just by unleashing the girls' crazed over-the-top sexuality. I just love this stuff!
And the quality is incredible - 1920 X 1080, 8062 kbps of astounding and wonderful and joyous public beach sex action.
I know public nudity and body painting aren't appreciated by everybody, but if you're a Blue Angel fan,or an ass-and-legs fan, this scene is fantastic. There are 3 vids - 1 and 1/4 hours - highest quality is 1920 X 1080 hd - 8075 kbps bitrate - just stunning - plus 33 pages of pics downloadable by zip at either high or low res - high res pics are 2592 X 3888 - stunning, stunning, stunning.
Fans of ALS Scan model Molly might want to check out AaliyahLove.com - look familiar? Yep - that's her! I happened to stumble onto her cam show tonight at the Camz network. I was watching that delightful booty bounce up and down and looking at that beautiful smile and it struck me. I asked her if she had modeled for ALS and she said, "Yes, I did" and I realized it was her. There are samples of her various sets around the 'net. Her site doesn't look half bad - just went live in its current incarnation in November.
She just started doing chats at Camz Network last week, so I was lucky to find her.
This is hands-down my favorite site on the net - great vids, hot girls, high quality pics, high quality vids, lots of updates, awesome bonuses once every month or two.
And they are always working on upgrading the site in significant ways.
Now they have made a leap in their navigation, which was rather atomized and not so great. You had the pics under Feature Models, you had vids under Video Releases, you had vids under Directors Hottest Videos.
Now you can look in a few different places if you want, but if you are hot for a particular girl, you click on her at Feature Models and you have the links to everything they have of her under all sections.
This network of sites is only getting better. I joined through Jonni Darko's site, cause I like his stuff particularly, but you get John Leslie's site, Buttman.com, etc. Stagliano's putting a lot of energy on that site. He's putting up HD vids that are exceptionally good quality, including the Fashionistas material.
There are some glitchy things about this network - some sites require you to use your arrow keys to jiggle your way in, for some reason. There is no ability at present to search by performer, which is a real weakness. Material is also duplicated on the director's sites as well as the sites that are based on the type of material. So it's a bit difficult to get a clear picture of how much material is here. But there are more than 7 scenes updated in the network per week and the downloads are quite fast & the non-HD stuff is good quality. The real find to me is Jay Sin XXX. He's doing stuff that is at one and the same time nasty as can be and very pretty candi-colored. It's a wonderfully unique combo and he's doing loooong scenes with babes like Sasha Grey & Kacey Jordan.
Some investigation is probably warranted to determine exactly what sites you'll get when you join particular sites in the network.
The bad economy seems to be forcing competition among the Japanese movie sites in a good way for us fans. This site is advertising 30 movies added per day. I see from past reviews that at one time their rate was 1 per day. That explains why the site doesn't have more than 9,000 movies. I was wondering why they had so few if they had always updated at 30 per day.
Action JAV, another very good site, used to update at a rate of 4 per day. I noticed that they are now updating at a rate of 14/15 per day - and neither site is updating with crap either, so long as you're a fan of authentic JAV movies, which usually include mosaic and all the other eccentricities of Japanese porn.
The TBP reviews all mention an update rate of 2 new DVD's per day. I was looking at their updates and seeing 1 new DVD per day, so I started working backwards.
For whatever reason, on 1/22/08, they reduced their rate of updates by half. So if you're looking at the TBP reviews when you're thinking of joining, please be aware that the reviews were accurate up until 1/21/08, then that changed.
They seem to be wanting to enhance the social aspect of the site - or I guess that's the intent. It's a bit too complex for my pea brain to really get a handle on, but it's nice to see a site that's been around for a long while and had a rather old look to their site do new stuff. The main thing I care about - their "high" res pics look even "high"er, whether they are or not and they've got a few of their cam shows available as archives - as with all of their regular vids, you can stream them or you can download them in various resolutions.
And they are still continuing their incredibly high rate of updates. Good going, ATK
Tonight is the first time I was going to be home at the time of one of the webcam shows that ATK recently started to promote. So I click on the banner a couple of minutes before the show, I get a page with a countdown. I click on the banner after the show is supposed to start and I get the same countdown page saying there is 0 time left to wait for the show - and that's it except for 4 photos of her - what the hell?
Is this a joke? Is this a scam? Is this a bust? There's no indication as to whether the show was cancelled, is delayed, has technical problems, etc, etc, etc.
My advice - to ATK and all sites - and all businesses - don't promote things that are just going to disappoint your paying customers. It sucks!
I can't say that ATK Galleria is a perfect site. I can't say that it has perfect navigation. I can't say that every featured model is a goddess. I can't say that it doesn't generate it's moments of frustration in different ways.
But I can say that I REALLY like this site - more and more.
I like the range of styles of their photographers/studios.
I like the un-laquered quality of most of their most prominent photographer's work.
I like the huge quantity of updates.
I like that it's a site that makes me look forward to checking it out almost every day - and there's such an incredible amount of material on this site that even if the day's updates don't thrill me, I can always find some content that's new to me that does.
