So I have had mixed experiences with povD in the past. When I first joined in Jan 2014 It seemed very cool. I was very impressed with the shooting style. It seems like pov where mostly the entire female is visible on screen is quite rare. Idk why this is, just butt cheeks or boobs or just a face on screen by themselves is not appealing to me as a viewer... I digress...
The first 10 or so scenes are hot. Great performers, sets, shooting, and high quality video resolution. I was happy, I thought that I finally found a credible POV site that would update regularly.
now for the second month. I was very excited to see Janice G. there but I was quickly disappointed to find the video quality was horrible. Not offered in 1080p, only 720p and the pixelization was plentiful. I mean this was not even good 720p; it was not clear video, it was dark and the color was way off. I don't see how they can get away with saying "highest quality video on the net" and not even offer a quality 720p or 1080p, much less 4K (which most would argue to be the highest mainstream quality these days). It is clearly not the highest quality.
There was also the issue of an oversized watermark that covered 1/4 the screen which included the pussy, but at least that got taken care of, eventually.
I have also noticed that they have started "recycling" many of the girls now. D.Carter is in 4 different scenes and there aren't that many vids on the site yet ...not cool. I mean maybe if they had her in different costumes or something to switch it up I would say "its cool" ...but its not
This has been my experience on povD.com
My main question to you is are the videos looking better yet? I mean are they back to 1080p? and at what update/girl did the 1080 start back up on? Any 4K yet?
Are there any other POV sites you know of that offer the full body view I am looking for? I have checked out many and so far all I really liked are povd, P.north.com, & HW101. The latter 2 sites are good but hardly update. HW101 over at Naughty A. is def worth a look if u like this style and haven't seen it.
I be very happy if one of these sites could offer up an ebony babe in full body pov. If you know where I could get a scene like this let a bro know. I would greatly appreciate the heads up, and thank you for any info you may provide.
Thanks for a great review. The Babes site was one of the very first sites I joined and it was good (not great) at the time.
Your comparison, for example, to Met Art is perfect as a reason why Babes goes off my short term join list. I like the technical excellence of Met Art but I literally fell asleep watching one of their videos last year when I was still a member (boring video, but a sip of Glenlivit scotch contributed to my drowsiness. I don't think I've ever dozed off watching a porn video.
I've evaluated the "lifetime" deal and did the match as you did. Unless you stay a member of a site for an extended period it's not a deal by any stretch of the imagination.
IIRC, all their videos have this fish lens distorted effect, like the ones in Spizoo'sPornGoesPro. This "House of Mirrors" effect doesn't do it for me, zero excitement.
I understand that making proper POV is difficult. Even more so when you are a cheapass wanting to do it alone.
So either you do it with a normal lens, and convince your viewers who never had sex that it's exactly how it goes, you either see the closeup of her face or a closeup of your dick as if your eyes were popping out of your navel. The sad thing is that they believe it.
Or you use a fish eye lens to widen the field of view, thus completely distorting her body. Neither of this is exciting for me, and the proper way to do it, by having someone else hold the camera a bit higher that the guy's head, is almost never used.
It seems that mostly it's some guy wanting to get laid, have us pay for it, and make a living out of it. Understandable, I'd do the same :). Why pay a second guy to hold the camera, customers will swallow any crap. Some even think that it's normal to have camera shake, your pelvis is in motion after all and all that. No it's not, IRL your eyes are not fixed in their orbits, they move by themselves so your image is stable. There is no excuse for shaky cam, as there is none for any Hall of Mirror porn.
Anyway, /rant off, sorry. I wish my search for a proper POV site was over. Tired of having to content myself with 5 seconds of non-crappy footage in one video out of 10.
I agree with your point and will add another element.
I, as you, would go for the cost per day bargains of 1 year memberships. But when new (to me) sites showed up on PU I would sign up for one month with the idea of going for the 1 year deals if I liked the site.
That tendency created a serious overload where I had 3 sites at once with 1 year memberships and found that I was unable to take advantage of them all (the time aspect). In fact I discovered that I would access one of those sites only once or twice a month which negated the economic benefits altogether.
Nubiles, however, by their misguided pricing strategy, makes it easy to opt out of signing up for a full year.
These days I will go in steps; one month, three months (if it is cheaper on a daily rate basis) and, after seeing what my visit rate has been during the 3 month membership period, will decide that the annual membership makes sense.
Haven't seen you around before .... but having seen this well-written review, I'll be on the lookout for future ones.
Would Be nice to have you visit us in the forum .... we could use your talent.
Read "What happened to the new membership network access" comment by elephant posted to 18 only girls site.
The webmaster stated in a reply several weeks back that there would be a new program giving access to Wow Girls and WOW PORN if you were a member of the Diesel Access network.
I don't recall the exact details.
But he stated in a reply to elephants comment above:

Webmaster Hey guys! Like always, it took a bit more time. The alpha version was not up to my expectations so I sent it back for improvements. I think, it will be released during this week, my best guess it will be Tuesday or Wednesday but again, something may go wrong!
Yeah, there's someone at MPL who does not take criticism very well. I've had an experience or two myself. It's still a great site. It's like eating at a restaurant that is as famous for its food as it is for the churlishness of the hospitality staff.
Ariel's awesome and there is TONS of material on her site. It's oddly organized - you'll find a lot of material under her blog, for instance. It's easy to miss things if you don't click around in all the nooks and crannies.
Looks like I need to keep looking around. There is one bonus site that isn't bad called Ariel Rebel. Although I don't recall seeing the girl before, the solo site has Recent updates, decent vidos, etc.
Great, in-depth review, with a lot of good points. You are selling it a bit short on the numbers though; a quick look at the list of sets shows > 700 sets; and don't forget the approx 500 videos.
If you go back a year ago, you'll also find they did experiment with some slightly more explicit stuff - see Emma/Emmanuella's sets (they also have quite a few late 20s models, of which she is one), where there is some masturbation, which worked well.
This was one of my favourite sites - I had a continuous membership for 2 years, but have recently stopped; partly because I have less time to spend on porn of late; but also, if I were to review it again now, I'd score it a bit lower than the very high score in my review, since:
* Updates are no longer daily - that's fine for the price of the site, but I'd need daily updates to subscribe for a year;
* The forum is gone - had some good chats on there with fellow members
* Most importantly - recent updates seem to be more studio-based; whereas what I love about the site is the voyeuristic nature of the locations - outdoor/bedroom/hotel/apartment etc
Oh and you are right it's a bit glitchy! It went through a couple of redesigns while I was a member, but never quite right.
But with all that, I'd still score it in the high 80s, especially for all the great archive material - and lots featuring models dressing and undressing from great lingerie and nylons.
Great review skippy, I had those same navigation issues when I was last there nearly 2 years ago. I find it incredible that some webmasters can't seem to grab the simple concept that when we hit the back button we want to go back to the page we came from.
The only issue that came into play regarding this customer was his inability to login for the first time using the Username and Password assigned by CCBill. The customer wasn't being blocked on our end for violating any rule. He simply wasn't entering his login details correctly...and so he was locking himself out. We choose to have strong passwords assigned rather than allowing easily cracked, easy to remember logins as a first choice for new members.
Upon signup, we provided this customer a working login to our members area. However, we can't do the logging in for him.
It should be noted the customer never requested to have his login changed by us, nor did he ask for any help testing his existing login he was having trouble with.
Both we would have done gladly had he asked for help.
It should also be noted: 12 minutes after we received the customers email, the same email he posted here, he had logged in successfully and already downloaded a 4000 res set. Nothing changed on our end. He had the ability to login all along. He just wasn't entering his login details correctly leading up to that.
To save him further frustration, we closed his account, refunded his subscription, and sent him notification.
Over the last year or so, I have made a point of writing down my subscription ID number, user name, and password immediately after signing up for a site. I keep these all in the same little notebook. They come in very handy when you go to log in, and when you go to cancel.
I hate the random usernames and passwords too, but I just view it as a necessary evil to deal with. Some of them are so bad I can never memorize them.
MPL is one of those sites that seems to be overly concerned with people trying to download their entire site. They have a list of rules right on the home page that seems just a bit over the top to me. However, I am very selective about what I download, and I don't use a download manager, so I never ran into any problems at their site. Having said that, I did notice more than once that after being on their site for about an hour or so, the back button on my browser didn't work anymore. I wasn't sure if this was problem with the browser or their way of trying to throttle me. It didn't work, as there were buttons at the bottom of each photo page to go back to the gallery. I think I had the same issue at another site, so I wasn't sure what the problem was. I doubt if your lockout originated from CCBill--you probably violated one of MPL's rules without knowing it.
I'm not an IT professional by any means. I can turn a PC on and off, and that's about the limit of my tech knowledge. (I can also click a mouse at the screen, and hope that will accomplish whatever it is I want to do).
But CCBill is one of the better payment processors, in my opinion. I've always had a good experience dealing with them. They send confirming emails when I subscribe or cancel a membership, which seems to be rare today. And it's nice to be able to search their site for membership information.
I don't like random passwords. But aren't those a function of the paysite, and not the credit card biller?
I certainly understand your frustration. But instead of blaming CCBill, the problem seems to me more with the paysite. The few times I ever had to contact CCBill customer support, it seemed to me I got courteous agents who tried to be helpful. CCBill can only do so much, they are only a billing agent, they don't have complete control of the account.
I've had problems with paysites in the past. But I don't blame CCBill for those problems. I think CCBill is a positive factor for me in joining a site, because I know that it will be easy to cancel a membership.
I also got locked out of MPL with no explanation. Apparently I had exceeded an unknown download limit which at the time wasn't stated in the Terms and Conditions. I got a fairly quick response from their webmaster, the block was removed and they even added a couple of days to my membership for the inconvenience so I couldn't really fault their customer support. I would be surprised if they don't sort you out quickly.
