Please don't think I was just picking on you. These 100's have been bothering me for a while and yesterday was my day to snap on it.
Unless you can measure it with some sort of ruler, when isn't it subjective.
Anyway, I agree, Abby Winters is the benchmark, standard bearer, leader of the pack, for amateur sites and I'd go further and included commercial sites as well. There's not a better site out there considering all things. They do some much brilliantly, but they're not perfect. You said as much in your reply and gave Abby a 100. To me it's a 98.
Perhaps the real issue is this cancer of grading on a curve. Sure made a lot of parents and teachers happy, but it is to education what the Ford Mustangs of the late seventies are to the Mustang line and cars in general. An ill conceived inflation of a good idea.
So forgive me, but I just couldn't take it any more.
I agree with what everybody said, especially the part about it not seeming like a real review. The pros part is ok if he loves it that much, but the rest seems like an advertisement. It is definitely not helpful to the site to have him give it a 100 because no site is perfect. The only way I'd probably give a site a 100 is if they hand delivered everything to my house and I got to meet with the performers! But, as roseman pointed out, I would like to hear what he has to say because many have rated this site only a couple points lower than 100 and maybe it has fufilled all his needs, which would be awesome if I could find that for myself.
Its not the 100 score that bothers me as much as the lack of an actual review.
I still don't know whether the site has DRM, the amount of content available or anything else for that matter.
Some more information would be helpful, especially regarding content, download speeds and updates
Do not beleve review. This site is one of best on
the internet. I joined over 100 site in 10 years and this site has best girls, best video, best picture quality. Some shots are very vaginal, that is true. Most shots are glamure. He must not be member, old videos are available.
This persons review is not to be trusted. Look at other reviews.
I agree especially with this review. The site is a very good value, possibly the best (?), especially now that 1536px shots have become the norm since at least Feb. of this year. This makes it superior to ATK Premium, which costs the same and offers fewer pic sets per day at the same size.
The videos are below par in quality, though, and specific "encounters" are divided up into MANY small files strewn over several weekly offerings -- very annoying if you're into vids.
I do remember when ATK had the AMKingdom logo instead of the ATK one, and do believe their main office is in Florida. The CS rep that responded to my email kept mentioning UK and members "favourite" model instead of favorite. I actually wrote to complain to them also about the treatment of some of the models in the behind the scenes clips. If you have watched any of those, everyone from the photographer to the hairdresser/make-up person, and the woman who asks questions have British accents.
In one though, with Eve Angel, they go to Hungary, her home country, and have her walk around the cities with them explaining history. She speaks and understands very little English. They start asking her the dumbest questions, "What happened at this spot in 1958?" because there is a marker that says 1958. She was born in the early 80s. Also, "Could you point at that building and tell us what it is?" It was obvious that pointing is seen as rude in Hungary. She says no. They continue with these boneheaded questions. Then it hits a boiling point when the cameraman asks her to, "dance a little" thousands of Hungarians walking around. She says no. He says, "Ok, show us something." She says no. He asks something else, the woman with him asks something else. Finally, Eve says, "I'm not doing that! All the f*cking Hungarians around, it is not right!" she also tells them she is not happy with the shoot, they are being too personal that she is there to model.
I expect this type of badgering from some of our US sites like Bang Bus who are in it for humor as well as sexy. But I thought it was really sad for the ATK sites to badger a model like this. She was fine with spreading nude, in privacy, for the behind the scenes, changing clothes in front of them, everything, but you could tell they went too far by going against Hungarian customs.
See, I'm on the opposite end as you when it comes to women. Being from California, most of the US pornstars look just like girls I see everyday out here. I have some US models I like, Eva Angelina, Aria G, Teagen for example, but I tend to prefer the Euros. Even so, didn't want you to think I was trying to debate your score. I was mainly just letting you know what they had told me.
I too have wondered about the Premium label. I wouldn't have posted this if I hadn't seen where you are from USA like I am. Seems they speak a different English than we do, according to the email that I received back from them, "ATK Premium is a collection of the best from each of our sites, ATK Galleria, ATK Hairy, ATK Exotics, based on model popularity."
Which does make some sense when you think of it. Kind of like a Greatest Hits cd or Best of cd. I explained to them that I thought maybe it would be higher quality on the pictures and/or videos. Their reply back, "If it were higher quality video and pictures; don't you think we would be charging more for it than we do for the other ATK sites?" I thought about digging a hole to bury my head in!
I really like the design of the site that allows you to preview:
-what the models look like.
-the quality of the model pix (quality of the pix is poor to OK, definitely not high quality).
-the quality of the videos. Good quality videos: sharp, crisp focus, good flesh colors, good lighting.
In a PU poll a few days ago, the question was asked: "In a porn shoot, how important do you think the setting and decor is?"
This is supposed to be a "reality site", where no effort is made to dress up the models or the action in the videos. The setting and decor are two steps below Hamburger Helper.
I'm not looking to join this site anytime soon. My personal taste is more for glamor pix.
But your review is nice: short, yet covers the essential points.
I tried the trial maybe a month ago, maybe longer. The trial was almost completely worthless, nothing like a Reality Kings or Bang Bros or Brazzers trial. Couldn't download on the trial either. I don't know if you have the full or trial membership though. But either way, it was a bad first impression for me, don't know if I'll go back.
Also missing a few updates that I saw on the tour.
Ughh, thanks for pointing out this is a streaming site only. I was pretty excited at the content of this site after seeing the tour because it reminds me of the site College Fuck Fest which I rented a few DVD's back in the day when I rented stuff and enjoyed the content. But, I can't join a site that only streams, I'm a fan of downloading so I can watch at my leisure and especially now that my time to watch has diminished a lot lately. Thanks for the review.
Sorry, I was going by the URL you sent me in email which was the site I posted here. I'll be happy to look into the other you've (now) provided and barring any snags, the TBP Editors will get it added w/in the next few days.
Be aware, if it's a clone of the other site, it may will NOT qualify for a listing.
Ouch - sorry to see the snookering you got caught by. Yeah it is a rule of thumb that those checkboxes are generally "in addition to" the cost of the site you were actually trying to join. I've actually not seen any site trying to hawk anything more than a trial membership off with that option. Pretty shady if you ask me. You might consider putting a warning note on the Exploited College Teens site (if you haven't already).
That said, I'm with you on this site - very staged (there's no such thing as reality porn) and very amateurish. I'd be surprised if anyone really thought they were getting their money's worth here, but you never know. Although - he does have an Ellie Idol episode up, and that's worth a lot by itself :)
I fully agree with you on the quality of the websites, though the navigation could use a bit of a make over in my opinion.
As for the fact that the other websites are not included, this really annoyed me at one point.
Also, for some reason I was waiting for something spectacular from this website.
Like a drill-do that just goes berserk and REALLY messes up a girl or whatever. Just something that we have never seen before.
Though that video is still to be made by Kink.com...
Otherwise a fun website for sure. Great review!
