I don't know - I think if an analysis were done comparing ALS Scan & ALS Angels both to Met Art & their related sites in terms of the overlap in models, I would expect that the percentages of the 2 sites would be fairly close.
I don't think you were "off" in any way in thinking that both ALS Scan AND ALS Angels would be part of MetArt's network - especially when you think about the universe of models that Holly Randall has used on her site - many of whom are more ALS Angels material than ALS Scan in terms of age and boob-size.
It may just be a matter of time and prioritizing. ALS Scan has always been the more high-priority site for Alex and Co.
I'm more of a video collector and these sites tended to favour photos. I've kept some of the videos and they were probably substandard resolution even five years ago. One of these days I'll take the plunge and join a couple of solo sites again.
Yes, they're the same. Since I only want a few of the "hi" sized pics, I've resorted to opening the pic, looking at the browser title bar, and using that to get the photo number and just typing it in in place of the super long goobledegook default file "names."
Another weird thing I hadn't mentioned before is that for some reposted sets, the medium and hi sizes are identical, though they are labeled medium and hi (or high, can't recall off hand). So you can download a zip of each and they're really the same size pics.
Anyway, I've liked the photo quality and babes (mostly) at ALS Scan, but with these new changes, along with the addition of hardcore, it's become less appealing.
I'll probably go back some time, but there's no hurry.
I agree that Joymii has something that the others may be missing. I've been loosely tempted by Sex Art, especially as there are some tempting offers as I am currently a member of TLE... but it does strike me as slightly artsy nonsense :) Not that's necessarily a bad thing - but still, not always what one is after. Babes is OK - a little formulaic and very similar to Digital Desire, just with hardcore - a review will follow.
Interesting that you mention the jarring when seeing the same model with different partners - one one hand the whole porn thing is a suspension of disbelief, so it doesn't bother me quite as much. But on the other, one of my favourite models is Connie/Josephine - apart from her quite jaw-dropping figure, she only seems to do hardcore with the same guy; I guess they are partners and to me it shows, and makes the scenes considerably more believable.
Glad you like it! I'm generally more into softcore, but the heartcore genre has won me over a little - this site remains by far my favourite so far.
I find it has a bit more personality than X Art, which is a bit too perfect-teens-dreamy for me; I especially like the camerawork at Joymii (although I find the photography lacking in atmosphere comparison to the video direction). For me it as the right balance - is a bit arty and sensual but not too seriously or at the expense of actual excitement or fun.
I'm currently a member at Babes.com - it's good, but still has half a foot planted in more typical porn. After that, my next one will be Dane Jones, perhaps?
Good catch, exotics. She is definitely hot. This site's page at TBP says that it bills through CCBill, but clicking through to Melissa Pass (which gives access to Val's site too) says there is no independent merchant. I might consider joining, but I'd definitely prefer to see a reputable biller used. (Plus, my preference would be for the lovely Val to have A-cups, but a guy can't have everything...)
[Edit - I was browsing around on Val's site and it appears that if you join there (through CCBill) you still get access to all the sites on Melissa Pass - and it looks like the price is lower for a three month membership through Val's site.]
Renna was with us up until last week. She just gave birth and simply didn't have time to do her site and cam, be a Mom, wife etc so she chose to retire her site. We respected this completely. She's an amazing woman and we wish her all the best!
Hunter will have videos added shortly - We bought her site from her old webmaster, and some of the formats weren't compatible with our system so we had to make changes.
We are adding some multi model sites shortly (in Feb and March) that will feature hardcore photo sets and videos.
We're trying to add some bang for the buck :)

thanks for your review, your time and of course, your support!
Nice review Exotics! I checked out the network, and it looks interesting. I actually like one of the other girls (Hunter Leigh) the best, although Bryci does have a nice pussy. It would be nice if they had more girls with natural boobs.
I appreciate the webmaster responding to all reviews here, even when the reviewers are only bitching and moaning. BellaNetwork, have you considered modifying the download limit to allow a greater limit in the first few days and first week that someone joins? I know my downloading is heaviest at any site I join in the first week I'm there, and I think that's probably true for most others also.
The lack of zips for the photos would be an issue for me too. Very few sites take that approach. BellaNetwork, I know its gotta be frustrating to see your content posted somewhere illegally, but this doesn't seem to be an issue for most websites. We've had this discussion on the forum, and the general consensus seems to be that people who download pirated content wouldn't pay for a membership anyway, so you're really not losing anything. Just speaking for myself, I don't have the time to go searching all over the net looking for free content (especially since there are usually viruses and malware where u find it); I am more than happy to pay the monthly fee and get it from the legitimate source.
If you had zips and a few more girls with natural tits, I'd try the network for a month. Hopefully you plan to add more girls.
That is a fantastic review, thank you. Our DL limit is 12 gigs per day, we bumped that up last week and it's per 24 hours. So far it hasn't been an issue for anyone, as that is a decent amount of download. We are looking at doing away with it altogether to be honest.
We haven't as of yet because sadly, when you run a solo model site you find there are those that would join to mass download to post torrents etc. These ladies put themselves out there, so when someone steals their content and posts it, it's quite defeating to them. As such, we have limits and protection in place to try and slow this.
That is the reason we don't offer zipped photo sets as well. When we did offer them, our content was getting posted often. When we removed zips, it's as if we slowed piracy down considerably. Piracy is part of the industry, it can also be helpful at times but still, we'd prefer our content not all over. Sorry the zip thing was an issue.
Bryci started as NN in Feb 2009, went to nude in May 2009 area. Started using toys in April 2012. Hope that helps with the timeline. :)
The wishlist button is there because people have asked for it to be there. Many people love buying her things, dressing her up if you will. I completely understand you not wanting this.
If you notice in her site, you're not force fed advertisements either. Same thing, I hate signing up for a site and it's ad box after ad box. As if signing up wasn't enough, now they want to upsell you more. We created a separate site with friend's galleries as to not be counted towards Bryci's numbers like many sites do. They tell you they have X amount of images, but many if not most of those images are other models or 'friends'. In our sites, the numbers listed are for the model herself.
Thanks again for your review, sorry we couldn't bring it up 5 points by having zipped content. Best of luck in your travels!
It's good to read an impartial review on this site from a long standing PUer without an axe to grind against the site. I would quite like to join this site but as I'm only interested in photos and like to collect full sets the lack of zips is a deal breaker for me. If I knew I would be able to download the photo sets with a programme like Firefox DTA I would still be tempted but I think the webmaster doesn't like download managers either. I think the webmaster expects us photo collectors to "right click save as" on every photo and I haven't really had the patience to do that for years. Add in the regional pricing that bumps the price up to $32 means I'll probably be holding on to my money for now.
Bryci's site is quite a good one, exotics, most definitely work at least a 1-month join. There's a lot of material - pics and vids, much of it quite high quality. The earliest stuff on the site had what I would describe as an amateur style, very straight-ahead, and really fun. As the site has developed, it has gone into more of a glam direction, but not with excessive photo-treatment. Bryci's also gotten quite a bit friskier as the site has developed, more toy-play and masturbation.
The site's run by Bryci and her boyfriend, so it's a very personal site, not very corporate. That can mean that there are gaps between updates, but then those are caught up on.
Bryci's a gorgeous petite babe with large enhanced boobs.
The other thing about the site is that you get the whole network of several sites for the cost of just joining one site, so there's a whole lot of material beyond the hefty collection in Bryci's site. And you'll also have access to whatever webcam shows happen on the network, if that's of interest to you - and all of Bryci's webcam shows are archived.
In our terms of service, we have a 10 gig per day limit. It doesn't matter where you live. If you attempt a site rip or site download, mass download etc, the server alerts us to this.
It compares your pattern of downloading with literally all other members and puts you in a priority according to the amount of requests made, page loads etc. Software that rips sites leaves a very distinctive footprint, regardless of the software or method used. The server will stop people doing this, and yeah, it's in Terms of service so if you attempt a site rip, you'd be banned. Sorry.
My job is to make sure the box is moving quickly for all members so when one abuses the box with mass requests because they're site ripping.. it slows down the box for all members who trying to access normally.
So if you download normally, you're good to go. I'd hope as a potential member, you'd appreciate we do this. We keep the box moving quickly. Means everyone is happy and people out to slow us down, don't succeed.
We're having a blast, hopefully this answers your questions but if not, feel free to email me personally. email@example.com
Thanks for the info and time to help. I appreciate it.
Actually, I have to call the number. It appears bangbros now does all their billing with the 1-800 number. When I call, they say they do not have any subscription to cancel and they know nothing about the site Cullineros. I do not have any accounts listed with the others and their support also says I do not have an account with them.
When trying to get info from the Cullineros site itself on how to cancel or get customer help, it all comes up in Spanish. They don't do that when you sign up and it is all in English when they are taking your money.
It may also be worth noting that Wunhing joined the site in September and the 8 website deal for Rachels friends was not introduced till October.
As for the site being "well overpriced" The site is aimed at the UK market because of what Rachel is all about, and at £23 for the month that equates to 76 pence per day!!
Where else can join a site that is actually run by the woman herself who is a totally real and genuine cumslut, meet her fuck her, view 30 thousand photos, some videos and take part in her adventures for real, all for £23!!
