Pros: - A mega-site that still manages to get specialties right
- Something for everyone
- 2-3 updates per day
- Broad spectrum of niches
- Many different types of models
- Logically laid out site
Cons: - Many complaints of misleading practices
- Links time out very quickly (2-3 minutes)
- Not all sites update
Bottom Line: Bangbros seems to be the most polarizing of the mega sites that gets reviewed here, and it doesnít really have to be that way. The sites included with the basic network are large, many (but not all) are updating regularly and all offer some great porn. But working against BB is the perception of misleading signups and shady billing practices. It seems unreasonable to me that BB isnít aware of these concerns since the misleading signups are obviously a choice they made (and the billing flows from that) and if they are aware of the concerns, it baffles me why a site of this calibre would continue to do that.

BB really needs no introduction, but Iíll add a quick one in case someone has just discovered internet porn. BB is a large network of sites, which isnít unique, that offers sites catering to just about any niche a member could be interested in. Anal? Lesbian? Big breasts? Reality? Glory Holes? Theyíre all here. What sets BB apart from most other mega-sites is that (at least in all the niches I downloaded) they are done really well. So many other mega-sites have a feel of a low-cost buffet where your appetite will be sated but you wonít rave about the quality. In the niches I viewed I was pleasantly surprised to see that just because the network covers so many niches that they still seem to be able to understand what makes good porn within a specific niche. For example, I love both anal sites and glory hole sites and the BB sites Mr. Anal and Glory Hole Loads are among the best of each niche that Iíve seen. Each could easily be a stand-alone site and still have value. I have every reason to believe that the same thing applies to the niche sites that Iím not interested in.

The other great thing about BB is that they offer models from a range of ages, body types and ethnicities. The models also range from A-listers to relatively unknowns.

Iím going to break with my own convention of providing a lot of detail in a review because I donít want to risk misleading anyone. The reason for this is that I added an optional ďSuperPackĒ of sites that appears in the scenes available to me. To give the number of scenes available would include those and mislead someone who buys the basic membership. But donít let me mislead anyone in the other direction either: the basic membership includes thousands of scenes. For a first-timer or a recurring member there is real value here.

The site started adding HD videos in January 2009. Prior to that the videos were available in WMV (852x480, 1500kb/s), and MP4 (720x404, 1000kb/s and 852x480, 1500kb/s). The HD videos are in MP4 and come in at 1280X720 at 3000kb/s. Those arenít the best the industry has to offer, but they look good on both a monitor and a 50Ē TV.

The network is logically laid out and has a search function and also uses tags. I canít speak for the effectiveness of those, as Iíll explain.

Perhaps the biggest issue with the network is their apparent use of misleading upgrades. Many PU members have reported that all they have done is click on a thumbnail and ended up joining something that they didnít intend to join Ė and being billed for it. I have good reason to think that this is an accurate description of what can happen, so in the interests of providing a public service Iíll make four recommendations:

ē If you only subscribed to the main network, when you go to the main page ONLY click on the link to the ďBang Bros Pack.Ē Thatís what you bought and paid for. Clicking on any other link MAY cause you to join that site.
ē When youíre in the BB Pack that you bought, be extra careful about using the search function and tags as these MAY bring you scenes in a site outside your pack. Opening that scene MAY cause you to be signed up.
ē Keep your joining email Ė it will provide you a link to a site where you can cancel. (This worked for the main network for me, but I did need more effort to cancel the add-on even though I had the right link.)
ē If you donít want to be rebilled plan to cancel a bit earlier than usual in case you have problems. Your membership will still be active until the end of the subscription Ė at least it was for me. (I should also add that even though I had problems cancelling the add-on it was quick and effective.)

One other minor issue is that while download managers seem to be permitted, the short life of the links make it impossible to use a manager to queue downloads. Links die after 2-3 minutes, so even with a fast speed (I saw 11MB/s regularly) queuing more than two HD scenes wasnít worth it.

So would I recommend this site? Absolutely. They are among the best Ė and maybe the best Ė mega-site on the internet today. They offer something for all but the most extreme tastes, and what they offer is top-quality. The website is logically laid out and easy to use. My bottom line with BB is much like it would be for a lot of sexual activities: have fun, but go in with your eyes open and use protection.

Pros: - 42 sites (though not all are updating)
- Several unique niches
- Excellent mainstream porn
- Supports download managers
- Good mix of models
- Good mix of niches
- TBP / PU discount
Cons: - Vague daily download limit
- Some sites no longer updating
- No active anal site on network
Bottom Line: I had been a member here before and liked the network but didnít like the daily download limit. What I didnít like most about that limit was how vague and even arbitrary it seemed. Some members reported not encountering the limit, while other like me were cut off well before the limit stated in the siteís terms. The limit is still there, and itís still vague, but I didnít hit the limit often despite downloading a lot (Iíll explain that) and the network does offer some excellent porn.

The site is logically laid out with the main page showing all of the network updates available. There is a tab that brings you to a page with links to the specific sites. Each site has its own page that looks like the home page. There is a useful search function in that you can enter a term and a drop-down menu appears with some suggestions that you may be looking for.

The network offers a really good mix of models and niches. There really is something here for most tastes: legal teens, MILFs, big breasts, big assess, women of color, party sites, girl/girl and anal. There is also a good mix of models with some big names and some lesser-knowns.

The biggest difference for me this time was that I only downloaded HD scenes. There are four download options: WMV, and three MD4s (low medium and HD). I didnít sample any other resolutions but the HD scenes are 1920x1080, 10,000kb/s and 29fps. Streaming is also available (no options on resolution) and clips are available too. There are also both pics and screencaps as singles or zips.

The network has 42 sites. To save me from adding details to each PU page, here are some basic details. Iíve grouped them by when they update and the number indicates how many scenes there are currently:

Updates weekly: Cum Fiesta 616; 8th Street Latinas 566; Round and Brown 503; MILF Hunter 588; We Live Together 537; Mikeís Apartment 588; Big Naturals 624; Mike in Brazil 469; First Time Auditions 360; Euro Sex Parties 470; Street Blow Jobs 577

Updates every 2 weeks: Money Talks 171; Pure 18 344; In the VIP 279; Monster Curves 204; Moms Bang Teens 43; Teens Love Huge Cocks 24; Tranny Surprise 409

Updates monthly: Happy Tugs 47; Big Tits Boss 164; Hot Bush 53

No set update schedule: MILF Next Door 231; CNFM Secret 51

No updates: Captain Stabbin 265; VIP Crew 26; Flower Tucci 28; Team Squirt 52; Itís Real 21; 40 inch Plus 67; See My Wife 28; Saturday Night Latinas 24; Bikini Crashers 4; Girls of Naked 23; Cum Girls 29; Dangerous Dongs 20; Extreme Asses 44; Extreme Naturals 47; Real Orgasms 26; Top Shelf Pussy 3; Wives in Pantyhose 13; No Faces 6; Mega Cock Cravers 1

This is a personal opinion, but Iím disappointed that they no longer update VIP Crew and Bikini Crashers. Iím a big fan of party sites and these were well done. (In the VIP still updates, but the dead sites offered some twists.) Iím particularly disappointed that Captain Stabbin is no longer active. With this site no longer updating, RK is in an odd position of no longer having an anal-themed site on its network.

The network started adding the HD option in September 2010 so if you insist on HD youíll still have access to almost 700 scenes. Keep in mind that the advantage to the HD scenes apart from quality is that you can download more before hitting the daily limit. One drawback is that that many of the files are large, coming in at more than 2GB.

The site supports download managers and I had no obvious problems with time-outs.

While RK isnít the only site on the internet to impose a daily download limit, they are unique in having one that seems vague and random at the same time. The limit is imposed differently if you are downloading HD or SD videos. If you opt for HD files, as I did, the limit was very reasonable, but since it was also higher than what is set out in the siteís terms and conditions document that may not always be the case. The siteís terms state that a member may ďdownload up to 10 gigabytes of data each day, and additionally up to 15 Ďbigí movies as defined in Manwin Billing's sole discretion.Ē The last time I was a member here I downloaded SD files and would be cut off at 8 to 10GB per day. This time I took only HD files and could usually get 30 or more files (at an average of 1GB each) before I was off. So while there is a limit, if this is how itís being used then it isnít too big an issue.

The last time I reviewed RK I scored it much lower and that was solely because of the download limit and my perception that I should avoid HD because of that limit. This time around I took only HD and the limit for those is almost reasonable. This is a huge network with a lot of great porn that is easily accessed. Apart from my general opposition to limits and my subjective wish that three of the sites were still active I can still recommend RK as long as a prospective member knows what to expect. Itís a lot of excellent porn for the money, especially considering the TBP discount.

Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: - New studio site
- Affiliated with Open Life and Erotica X
- All scenes directed by Mason
- Supports download managers
- Many choices for viewing scenes
- TBP / PU discount
- Several Ďfirstsí
Cons: - Small site for now
- Videos arenít associated with the DVDs they appear in
Bottom Line: Hard X is both a new studio and new website that features videos from the studio. The studio (and site) feature scenes directed by Mason, formerly from the Elegant Angel studio. Itís also a sister site to Masonís other studio/site Erotica X. Obviously the scenes at Hard X have a much harder edge than those at Erotica X. In my opinion, Mason is one of the best directors in the business. She brings a unique feel to her scenes and brings out the best in her performers.

One of the reasons Iíve been waiting impatiently for this site to go live was that Mason has brought a number of Ďfirstsí here. Iím a big fan of anal scenes and Hard X made a (justifiably) big deal over the first anal scenes for Maddy OíReilly and Annika Albrite. The site promises more in the future too.

Iíll deal with the major negative element first, since it will likely be a deal-breaker for some potential members. Because the studio is new they donít have a big catalogue yet, so the site is small too. There are currently only 30 scenes available. Since the site only launched last week I canít verify an update schedule, though the site itself has an Ďupcomingí tab and that shows a new scene being added per week. Yes, I know that seems slow, but this is a new studio and they donít have a lot to offer yet. A potential member will have to make his or her own decision on value, but with the TBP / PU discount I think this is a great value. I think that this isnít Ďcommodity porní but is unique and uses A-list models in scenes with high production values. I like to think of sites like this (and Erotica X too) as high-end steakhouses in a world of greasy buffets. (And yes, I realize that my analogy is unflattering.) TBP reports that the site also offers a full 2-day trial. This would be an incredible value for someone who just wanted to check out what the site has to offer.

The other negative is probably more subjective, but when Iím on a studio site I prefer that the videos be grouped by DVD title or capable of being sorted that way. For some reason, Hard X doesnít do that. I hope as the site grows they add a ďDVDĒ tab.

The site is well laid out with four scene per page, each with one large screenshot and two smaller ones. The scenes are titled with the modelís name in the title. There are tags for specific niches and the modelís name is a tag too. Each scene opens into its own page where you have all of the same information and brief description of the scene too.

As with all Open Life sites, there are a range of options for viewing and downloading the scenes. Streaming is available in seven resolutions ranging from 160p to 1080p. Downloads are available in WMV format (160p, 240p, 360p and 480p) and MP4 format (160p, 240p, 360p, 480p, 540p, 720p and 1080p). I downloaded the 720p and those are 1080x720 at 4800kb/s and 29fps. They look crisp and show no pixilation. Those files are, on average, about 1.3GB in size.

I had no problems using a download manager to queue up the scenes I wanted. There were no unreasonable time-outs on the links and my downloads hit and sustained the maximum speed that my manager allows (11mb/s).

The bottom line is that I highly recommend that you check this site out of you like hardcore porn with a slightly rough edge. This contrasts well with its sister site where the hardcore is softer and more couples-oriented. The site offers some excellent porn with some of the biggest names in adult these days. The site is well organized and logical. There are lots of options for viewing or downloading the scene too. When you add it up and apply the TBP discount I think this is a great value. As the site grows, it will become an even better value.

Pros: - Rare sub-niche within BDSM
- Large site
- Many download options
- Streaming available
- Mainstream and fetish models
- Effective site layout
- Allows download managers
Cons: - May no longer be updating
- Search function ineffective
Bottom Line: Kink.com sites have a lot in common, and thatís a good thing. The pros are significant while the cons are more detail issues on the periphery. Overall, any Kink site is worth the membership fee if you like the niche.

If this is the first review youíve read of a Kink site be aware that Kink is likely the leader in online BDSM material. A key element to their success is that they seem to treat the models well. Both before and after the scene there are interviews with the model that make it clear that there is full consent and a safe word is in use. This is not BDSM porn focused on the pleasure of the Dom(me) in inflicting torment, but clearly focused on the subís pleasure in receiving that torment.

The general niche with any Kink site is BDSM, and the specific niche here is the use of electricity as a means of torment. Various implements are used, both externally and insertables, that cause the subs to squirm. In a majority of scenes, the electrical implements are used while the model is in bondage or restraints.

The site is laid out like all other Kink sites. There are a number of shoots per page and an easy way to advance the pages. The number of scenes per page is user-selected depending on how much detail you want.

Itís a good thing that there is a simple design because the search functions are pretty dismal. It may have been the way I was using the functions, but I couldnít find anything I was looking for. And I found that the model search didnít work either. I was given a list of all the shoots a model may have, but I couldnít access it that way.

The site began back in 2002 and updated regularly until recently, so there is lots of material here. There are currently 537 videos available on the site. Kink appears to have been an early adopter of high quality videos because the vast majority of the scenes here are available at 1280x720. The highest resolution on the oldest files is only 640x480 but Iím not going to criticize that since it was good back then.

Like other Kink sites, there are options for downloading the scenes. Streaming comes in four Ďsizesí and downloads come in WMV and MP4 formats. Within those choices are different resolutions. I downloaded the highest resolution MP4s offered and those came in at 1280x720, 5000kb/s and 29fps. They look great on a 24Ē monitor and look fine on a 50Ē TV too. Some may criticize the lack of 1920x1080 but I find that the increased file size isnít warranted by the increase in quality unless youíre using a huge TV. The site permits download managers.

A highly subjective negative for me on this site is that it uses Dommes rather than Doms. Kink.com appears to be an affiliation of sites by different directors who work under the Kink roof. In this case, the site appears to be run by a popular director and sometime model, Princess Donna. Since itís her site, she calls the shots and sheís the Domme. A corollary to that is that there is almost no b/g sex here so donít come looking it. There are some scenes that have it, but there are likely less than a dozen.

Perhaps the biggest negative for the site is that it no longer appears to be updating. After regular updates for 11 years, the last update available is now eight months ago. Thatís not to say that itís dead, but for now it may be safest to consider that there wonít be new scenes. There is often debate about this, but the fact that the site is no longer updating is only a minor issue for me if Iím joining for the first time. With 537 scenes available at an average of about 45 minutes each I think this is an excellent value for the first-time member. Obviously this equation is quite different for a repeat member.

One difference here that I like, and I hope Kink maintains, is that they are honest about the lack of updates. The scenes are dated so anyone can see that there may be no more scenes added. But I hope that a prospective member would also consider 537 top-quality scenes to be great value. This contrasts with another Kink site, Water Bondage, where they have removed the dates and a prospective member could be misled into thinking the site was still active. Wired Pussy is a great site that doesnít need to hide the fact that it may be dormant since it is a good value anyway.

Like other Kink sites, this one got better as it progressed. The newer scenes have some creative bondage and implements, and while many of the older shoots had only fetish models, there is a steady stream of A-list porn stars lining up for some electrical play in the newer shoots.

The bottom line is that this is a Kink site and that means that all the good reasons to join are here: high quality scenes, top models, great production values, innovation and uniqueness, and an intuitive website with easy downloads. The fact that it may have stopped growing shouldnít deter a new member because at the membership price this is still a great value and highly recommended.

Pros: - 195 exclusive scenes
- Many true amateurs
- Among the most realistic sites around
- Great site for fans of oral, cum play and swallowing
- Simple and effective layout
- Multiple download options
- Supports download managers
- No download limits
- Broad range of models
- Excellent camerawork and lighting given the conditions
- Excellent choices in editing
- Updates weekly
Cons: - Limited thumbnails of model
- Broad range of models means youíll see some you donít like
Bottom Line: I look for objectivity in a review, and I strive to provide the same when I write reviews, but sometimes a site comes along that makes it tough for me to do that. ĎHeatí in a scene is definitely subjective, and in this case, for me, the heat isnít just turned up to eleven, itís turned up to Ďinsane.í I think my monitor was about to catch fire.

I wouldnít normally join a gloryhole site, but Iíve been trying to collect as many scenes by a beautiful young and relatively obscure model named Claire. Sheís not done much, and she looks like a pretty girl-next-door type, so I was surprised to see her doing something like this. She has four scenes on the site and at least one of them is already a favorite. But to my surprise, I was hooked on this site after watching a few scenes.

For me, the heat comes from the realism. I recently started joining casting sites, where the premise that an unsuspecting model comes in for some information on the adult business and ends up trying out. Obviously, in a world with legal requirements for ID these scenes are staged. But here, while they are still staged, there is an element of realism that Iíve never seen before. While the female obviously needs to be properly documented, the males can be a lot more anonymous. It doesnít strain credibility to think that a model could be brought into a video booth and guys would stick their dicks in for some oral. To add to the chances that these arenít fully staged, the siteís FAQ page has contact information for anyone whoíd like to have their penis star in a video.

Some scenes have a bit of a setup with an interview, but others donít. The action takes place inside a booth where the model services between five and ten men, sometimes more. In most scenes there is cum-play and swallowing. Some scenes have vaginal sex, a few have some anal, and several have two girls. The average length of the scenes is around 35 minutes, but some last over an hour.

Speaking of the girls, there is a broad range of looks. There are some that are young and beautiful, some heavily tattooed and pierced, some BBW, some MILF. The upside is that there is likely some here for every taste. The downside is that you might see some models that you donít like. Unlike most casting sites, I canít find much information on many of these models, which may means theyíre true amateurs.

With a video booth as your set it would be easy to have poorly shot videos. That doesnít happen here: the videos are well lighted and shot. The cameraman obviously knows what heís doing.

With scenes like these the editor might be tempted to cut lots of dead air out and keep the action flowing. That doesnít happen here. First, there isnít a lot of dead air, and second, the editorís choices keep the realism and heat up. Bad editing could ruin the site, but the good editing they have adds a lot to it.

There are currently 195 scenes uploaded, but maybe 20 of those are two-part scenes so that reduces the number a bit. The site updates with one new scene added per week. All the scenes offer some choice in how you view it. Streaming is available, but only at a fairly low res. Downloads are MP4 only and usually offer 480x270, 960x540 and 1920x1080. I downloaded the 1080 when they were available and those come in at that resolution with a bitrate around 5000 kb/s and 29fps. They look good. On some videos the highest is 960x540 but those are rare.

Others here have reported a daily limit. I downloaded a lot in a few days and never hit any limit, so that may be gone. I used a download manager to queue scenes and had no issues with that. The download speed was always the maximum that my manager will allow.

The site has a simple design, but since it focuses on one niche it doesnít need to be more complex. You can sort by update and model, there is a search function and each scene has tags. One minor flaw is that there are limited thumbnails of the models so you canít really tell if you want the scene. Thatís not a big deal since you can open the photos and see more.

There are photos, but I canít speak to them. This really is a video site.

One innovation in most scenes is an unobtrusive Ďcumshot counterĒ in the lower left of the screen that counts off a running total of satisfied customers. I like it and miss it on the scenes where it isnít used.

As with any niche site, thereís no sense in joining if you donít like the niche. But here there are several covered: oral, cum-play, swallowing and multiple shots. If you like any of those, you might like this site. If you do join youíll get a lot of unique and exclusive scenes on a simple but effective site and those scenes are well shot and edited. Youíll get all this for a very fair price making this a great value. Not only do I recommend it, Iíll be a regular there myself.

Pros: - Unique porn from a great producer/director/actor
- Some unique female models
- 192 videos from approximately 50 DVDs
- Videos in MP4 format
- Videos look good considering their age
- Offers a full trial
- Bills through a reputable biller
- Supports download managers
Cons: - Last update was seven months ago
- Not organized by DVD title, though thatís how it was produced
- Site is poorly designed, even for such a small site
- Many of the videos are available elsewhere
- No options for downloading Ė one format, one size
- No Ďtourí pages for prospective members
Bottom Line: Iím a big fan of Seymore Buttsí movies. He was one of the best and most prolific producer/directors in the business for a while and his movies were unique. He offered a true gonzo style that was fun to watch, he focussed heavily on anal sex and ass play, and he had some hot women who worked almost exclusively for/with him. The porn business was better for his contributions.

This is purely speculative, but I donít think that this site has any actual affiliation with Adam Glasser, aka Seymore Butts. I think this because Glasser seemed to take a lot of pride in his work, and justifiably so, and, excuse the pun, was anal about his work. This was demonstrated in the series about his business titled ďFamily BusinessĒ that aired on Showtime. There is nothing about this site that shows Glasserís quest for high quality.

The really odd thing about this site is that while SB was all DVD-based porn, the site isnít arranged by DVD title, itís arranged by scenes only. There are a dozen scene thumbnails per page with a brief description of the scene but youíll need to open the link to a scene before you can see what DVD itís from. And even then the DVD title isnít a clickable link to the other scenes in the title and there appears to be no way to search or sort by title. Maybe this will annoy only me, since I prefer to put the scenes from a DVD in a folder with the DVD title.

There are currently 192 scenes on the site, though saying Ďcurrentlyí might be misleading as it implies that the site is updating. The last scene uploaded was about seven months ago, so while I canít say for certain that the site isnít updating, it sure looks like it isnít. And with only about one-third of SB titles uploaded it isnít like theyíve already run out of material.

It appears that the site had a major renovation between the time when RustyJ reviewed it 14 months ago. Rusty reported the downloaded files were in WMV format and were all large. There are no download options offered: there is one link labelled Ďdownloadí and you take what youíre given. I downloaded 116 scenes and all of them are in MP4 format. While there are a few files that come in slightly over 1 GB, the average file size is about 300-400 MB. The files I downloaded are all 1280x720, 3000 kb/s and 29fps. Those arenít bad specs for scenes which are at least a decade old and in a lot of cases may be much older than that. Subjectively they look good.

The site itself could also have benefitted from a renovation. While Iím a proponent of keeping things simple, this site might be too simple. The layout is basic with not a lot of options to search. The Ďpornstarí tab only lists 12 models, to give you an example of how weak the site design is. But with less than 200 scenes offered, the weak site design isnít a big issue.

Streaming is available, though I didnít try it, and there appeared to be no streaming options.

I used a download manager to queue scenes for download and had no problems. Download speeds were what I usually get with other sites. I downloaded a lot in a day and never encountered any kind of limit or throttling.

The site offers four membership options: two trials (three and seven day), one month and an annual membership. I wouldnít normally offer advice here, but I think it is sound advice to say that no one should consider an annual membership given the size of the site and the fact that thereís been nothing added in seven months. I opted for the seven day trial but in hindsight I should have gone for the three day trial instead, but without any kind of a tour available to prospective members I didnít know what to expect. More advice Ė learn from my mistake. As Warren Buffet once said, itís great to learn from your mistakes, but its better learn from other peopleís mistakes. The seven day trial was full access and TBP reports that the three day trial is too, but I canít confirm that.

The site bills through Segpay so you can be assured that your membership will be fairly easy to cancel. One thing I didnít try so canít confirm, is whether your access is cut off after you cancel the trial membership.

While SB videos are offered elsewhere, such as Videobox, the file specs here are better, so if youíre a SB fan and looking for some of his stuff, this may be what youíre looking for.

The bottom line is that if youíre a SB fan this can be a good value if you opt for a trial. The downside is that if youíre a SB fan looking to add some titles you donít have there is no way to see which titles are offered here, and once you are a member there is no way to easily find the titles youíre looking for in the site. The upside is that for such Ďancientí porn as this, itís been encoded in a way that makes it look good despite much of it having been shot on videotape. Iíd recommend a trial membership, but make sure you go in with your eyes open.

Pros: - 24 videos
- 6 of the videos are casting interviews lasting just a few minutes
- Updates with a new full scene added per week (interviews arenít counted as updates)
- Unique take on a relatively rare niche
- Beautiful models
- Great productions
- All scenes offered in six different resolutions
- Allows download managers
- Excellent use of tags
- Photos available (as singles or zips)
Cons: - Iím not a big fan of the editing style
Bottom Line: Iím a big fan of the casting niche; I find that when itís well done it can be exceptionally hot. Yes, I know the models are acting, but when they are relatively new to the business and seem a bit nervous it adds to the heat.

Most casting sites follow a fairly simple formula: the model arrives, is told about the business and is then asked to strip and eventually to perform for the camera. Thatís present here, but the site adds a twist that Iíve not seen elsewhere: there is a Ďcasting directorí who is behind the camera and heís assisted by a beautiful model who is also trying out for a casting director position.

There are two broad categories of scene here: interviews with the prospective female casting agents, and then the scenes where new models are put through their paces. There are currently six interview scenes and these are fun to watch and involve some nudity. Theyíre pretty short though, at less than five minutes long each.

As of today there are 18 actual casting videos. Those range from 15 minutes long to just under and hour, with the average around 35-40 minutes. Like most casting sites, they follow a bit of a formula, and thatís not a bad thing. The prospective model arrives and there is some talk between her and the female casting agent, the model is talked out of her clothes and photographed and videoed by the female agent. The female agent gets partially nude, a male model is brought in and the female agent directs the action. (I should add, just to be clear, that the female agent is a porn star too and also very beautiful. All the models fit the Nubiles mold for beauty.)

This is purely subjective, but I see casting videos as a bit of a hybrid between hardcore and behind-the-scenes stuff. I find the editing style here leaves too much out. This is just a preference, but Iíd like to see more of the set-up and the move to different positions rather than an edit. I suspect that at least some of the motivation is to maintain the high standards that Nubiles has.

Two things that these videos really have going for them over standard casting videos is that the interaction with the female agent really adds a unique twist, and I really like the fact that the scenes Ďbreak the fourth wallí and we see the female agent taking photos and videos. The added bonus of this is that we also get two different camera angles.

Each scene is offered in five MP4 resolutions and one WMV. MP4s are 1920x1080, 1280x720, 960x540, 640x360 and 480x270 and the lone WMV is 1280x720. I downloaded the 1280x720 MP4 files figuring that theyíd be a good compromise between quality and size. Bitrates vary, ranging from under 4,000 kb/s to over 10,000 kb/s. Frame rates also vary, with a few scenes at 23fps, some at 59 and the majority at 29. I wonít pretend to understand why the site made these choices, but I can report that whatever the site does, it does it well: these scenes all look sharp and crisp with no pixilation with movement.

This is, admittedly, nit-picky, but for those who prefer a specific file type there is an issue youíll want to be aware of. My choice was to download the 1280 MP4 files. When I went to each scene the download choices are listed at the bottom in relatively small font. The problem is that the placement of the links for the 1280 MP4 and WMV files are swapped in at least six videos. All you need to do is pay attention, but if youíre like me and donít notice it until later youíll wonder how you managed to click on the same place for each scene and get two different file types. Clicking on the second-from the left file option is usually the MP4, but in some scenes itís the WMV.

The site updates with a new scene added each week. The interviews are short and donít count as an uploaded scene.

Like the main Nubiles site, this one uses tags to select for certain things you might be looking for in a scene. It may seem like overkill now as the site is small, but as it grows these tags will become a real advantage. The main Nubiles site does a lot of things well, but their use of tags sets a high bar and Iím glad to see them use it here too.

I donít collect photos, but it appears that this site follows the same high standards for the main Nubiles site. Photos are available as singles or zips in three resolutions: 5600x3700, 2000x1333 and 1200x800.

The bottom line is that this is a small and growing site with a unique take on the casting niche. The price may seem high, but for the fee you get access to the full Nubiles site too, which is certainly a great value. The models are stunning, the production values are great, the site is well laid out and the scenes are hot. Iíd recommend the site and it is one that Iíll rejoin once it grows more.

Pros: - Part of the Kink.com family of sites
- 480+ scenes
- Updates weekly
- Standard-setting production values
- Many viewing / downloading options
- Many A-list models
- Rare niche (bondage AND sex)
- Supports download managers
- Clear model consent
- Excellent value
- Photos available as singles and zips
Cons: - None
Bottom Line: For those who know Kink.comís sites, Sex and Submission needs no introduction. S+S is one of their older sites and dates back nine years. All Kinkís sites focus on consensual BDSM play with each site adding a twist. Here the twist is sex. That may seem self-evident, but many of Kinkís sites donít have a lot of actual sex and when they do it is secondary to the specific niche. Here the sex is front and center. The sex isnít plain vanilla though, as there is always an element of D/s play and sex while in bondage or restraint. Kink.com is, in my opinion, the best BDSM company operating today.

For those unfamiliar with Kink, donít confuse them with ďAbuseĒ sites. Those sites seem to revel in making the model miserable. Kink is the opposite: the models get to explore this facet of their sexuality in a controlled environment and it is clearly all about their pleasure. Itís hard to explain, but this isnít misogynistic BDSM.

As with other Kink sites, this one goes out of its way to ensure that the model fully consents to the play. There is an interview in each one where the scene is discussed and the safe word is made known. I know there are some who reject this approach and think that the consent itself is forced, but there is no evidence to support that position. One factor that, in my opinion, speaks well for Kinkís professionalism are the numbers of A-list stars who shoot scenes here, and many of them shoot multiple scenes. I suspect that if Kink coerced the models that no A-list star would work for them, let alone shoot multiple scenes. Adding to this position is the fact that many of the A-listers are definitely not fetish models.

The site currently has 480 scenes. Older scenes start with an interview and jump right into the action. Newer scenes are scenario-based which can add to the heat. There is bondage in several positions, with sex in most of them. If the model does anal, there is usually some anal. The scenes close with an interview which can be interesting to watch to see what the model liked about the shoot. The average length of the scenes is a little over an hour. The scenes canít be said to meet usual standards in that Kink.com sets those standards. Set creation and production values are the best there are. For scenes that strive have a dark feel about them, they succeed but they donít look actually dark. They are all well light, shot and edited.

The site updates with one new scene being added per week.

As with all Kink sites there are a lot of options to watch the scenes. (Obviously the older scenes have fewer options) There is streaming in four available resolutions. Downloads are available for portable devices, in WMV and MP4 formats. Each of those offers a choice of resolutions. I opt for the highest quality MP4s and those come in at 1280x720, 5000kb/s and 29fps. My experience with the next largest is that they are 960x540 at 1500kb/s. A few of the older scenes appear to have been remastered to a higher quality, but some havenít. The highest resolution for some of the older scenes is 640x480 at 825 kb/s, but keep in mind that these were shot in 2005 so they were up to standard then..

Another difference exists between the oldest and newer scenes on the site. When Kink first started the scenes were relatively simple: ropes, chains, spreader bars, etc. were common implements. As Kink matured the scenes became a lot more innovative in the means to bind the models. Kink clearly has some creative minds at work. A majority of the scenes are innovative and very interesting.

Photos are available, though this is really a video site so those are secondary. I donít collect those so I have no information on them.

Download managers work for queuing scenes. I found the links timed out at about an hour, which is reasonable.

Kink.com isnít a network so each site requires a membership. The good news is that when youíre a member to one site you get a discounted price for the others. I usually take advantage of this by joining the cheapest site I want at the full price and then get the discounted price on the others. Iím on their mailing list but havenít seen an offer in several years.

The bottom line on this site is simple: if you have any interest in this niche you should seriously consider joining. For the price, you get access to almost 500 scenes, regular updates and many big-name porn stars doing some interesting fetish work for the best company in the BDSM business. The scenes look great, the bondage gear is innovative and the models really seem to enjoy the play. This is an excellent value and I highly recommend it.

Pros: - 9 videos, 7 picture sets
- Unique niche
- $20 membership
- Videos in three resolutions
- Photos in zips or singles
- Photos in two resolutions
- High-res photos look amazing
- Supports download managers for queuing files
- Definitely all exclusive
Cons: - Small site
- No obvious update schedule
- Music replaces sound
- Would be much better value packaged as part of a network
Bottom Line: Leave it to the folks at The Best Porn to expose me to a niche I neither knew existed or liked it: girls getting naked while working out. There is really only one reason why I joined, and thatís to get access to a scene by a model I like who has only done a small amount of stuff. The fact that the site isnít terribly expensive at $20 and billed through CC Bill sealed the deal.

The site is very small, with only nine videos and seven photo sets offered. While thatís definitely small, you need to keep in mind that many of the scenes are well over an hour long and one falls just short of two hours.

The site has a very narrow (and unique) focus: girls at a gym, solo, who begin a workout, strip off their clothes while working out and complete the workout while naked. There is little variation: there is one scene with two girls with some sex, and one scene is shot outdoors, but other than that it follows the same formula. Consider this more a nudist site than a sex site.

The scenes are undated so I canít determine what update schedule, if any, exists. The site allows member comments on the scenes and the most recent scene has comments. Yesterday when I checked the comments the most recent said it was posted three months ago. Today it says it was posted on December 2, but doesnít give a year. I think it is safe to assume that if the site is updating there is no set schedule beyond glacial.

The site offers videos in three resolutions: 1920x1080 (9000 kb/s), 1080x720 and 640x360. While I found most of the video to be crisp and clear, I did find in some of the videos that where there is fast movement the edges become slightly pixilated. I donít understand the tech side of this so I donít know if this is something the site could even avoid.

A unique feature is that you can download an ISO version that can be burned to a DVD to watch on TV.

The site permits download managers for queuing scenes and zips.

The photos are available as singles or zips and in two resolutions: 3744x5616 and 1200x800. The high-res pics look incredibly good. If youíre a photo collector these might be worth joining to get. Photo sets range from 100+ photos to 800+ photos.

My biggest complaint about the scenes may be subjective, but I suspect that many others will agree with me. Iíll let any potential members decide on their own. The site has chosen to overdub the sounds of the workout with music. This isnít that there is music playing over top of the sounds; the sounds are gone and completely replaced by music. To make matters worse, in my opinion, is that the music is that techno-shit that seems to be overplayed in gyms. You might be able to convince me that this crappy music belongs in a gym (but donít bet on it) but youíll never convince me that it belongs in a porn video. Even a solo video where the intention may be to create a sort of gym atmosphere. Iíd rather hear the interaction with the crew than the music.

This site is one of ten that was added to TBP recently from a company called David Weisenbarger (David Nudes, HD Studio Nudes and more). I do not have memberships at any other of these sites but it appears that they are all relatively small (though some are fairly big), that they feature mostly solo models with rare g/g sex. My role in the porn biz is as a customer, and as a customer I am unlikely to join any of their other sites simply because they arenít a good value at $20 to $25 per site. (And keep in mind that production costs here are at the low end of the spectrum: no expensive locations, solo nude, no sex, no masturbation.) All the sites added together would make a fair-sized network and by charging a fair price theyíd probably generate exponentially more business. This has nothing to do with the review, and Iím obviously only speculating.

The bottom line? the site is small, but it is relatively inexpensive at $20. It bills through CC Bill so you can join in confidence. If this is a niche you like or there is a model here that you want to see then you may be willing to spend the $20 to join. For everyone else, the site is too small with no predictable growth to make this a good choice. As it stands now, and with no obvious changes coming, this site isnít a good value. If this site ever becomes part of a network or package deal Iíd reconsider my opinion.

Pros: - Stunningly beautiful young, legal models
- Tons of anal (yes, I know this isnít a pro for all)
- Supports download managers
- Excellent production values
Cons: - No obvious updates
- Very expensive
- Not great value for the price
- Some overlap with other networks
- Each site must be entered separately
- Sites Ďtime outí during use requiring that you follow an emailed link to get back in
- Make your username and password short and easy; youíll be using it a lot
- No network model search function
Bottom Line: I have mixed feelings about this network. I suspect that my opinion would be a lot more certain, and a lot more positive, if the price werenít so high. Speaking of price, let me address that first: I see cost as only one part of the value equation. Yes, cost is important, but this isnít the first time and it wonít be the last time I spend this much. If the site / network offers a lot of great and unique material then Iím much more willing to pay the higher price. Unfortunately, when you add up what $50 gets you here it doesnít add up to a good value.

While Iíd normally take the time to list the networkís sites and whatís available, I wonít do that this time. First, thereís no need since Evernight took the time to do that in his review, and second, because I just donít have the patience to do that on this network.

The good news here is that this is a network of 27 teen-themed sites. This is a true network in that the sites offer variations on a theme rather than just being a loose collection of scenes that could have just as easily been put on one large site. Youíll find most major porn niches here: oral, anal, gangbang, IR, etc., but keep in mind that all of the sites focus on fresh teen models. The real advantage of this network lies with the models themselves. If you like fresh faces and pert bodies then this network will surprise and delight. Honestly, the quality of the models will almost make a member forget the networkís serious shortcomings.

The models are a whoís who of the Russian and Eastern European legal teen porn biz. Many of the biggest stars are here. Of course, youíll encounter a familiar problem with these models in that the sites seem to give them different names every day so that makes it harder to follow a model you like. This network doesnít do you any favors either, because there is no way to select a model and find all her scenes on the network. That seems like something pretty basic that any network would do.

The production values on the scenes are top quality. The lighting, editing and sound all contribute to the high quality scenes.

The newer scenes are available in WMV or MP4 and in a slightly different resolution for each. There are also individual clips available. I downloaded the hi-res MP4s when they were available and those are 1920x1080 at 6,500kb/s and 29fps. They look great on a monitor and 50Ē TV. When the hi-res wasnít available I went with the next best which is 960x540 and 3,500, which, obviously donít look as good.

When I say that the newer scenes are hi-res, thatís a bit of a guess because the scenes arenít dated. I canít tell when they started offering HD. But an educated guess is that about half of the videos are in HD.

Update schedules are also a bit of a mystery. Iíve been a member for a week now and I havenít found an update, but thatís partly my laziness due to another network flaw.

I have no idea who would think this was a good idea, but there is no real Ďhome pageí for the network. There is no page where a member can go to see everything on the network including the recent updates. This network is a true collection of 27 sites and when you want to visit a site youíll need to enter your username/pass and a captcha. Every site. Every fucking time.

There were rumors of daily limits so I went looking for it by downloading a lot and found none. What I did find that periodically I was booted off the network and had to go to email for a link that would allow me back in. Download managers work too.

While I expected the scenes to be exclusive for this price, I did find some overlap with other sites. Not much, but then those are just the scenes I recognized.

One major reason I joined is a major reason why many others may not join: there are tons of anal scenes here. Anyone who doesnít like anal will justifiably think that the whole network should be called Anal Teen Core Club. There are sites that are anal-themed where every scene is anal, and there are sites that arenít anal-themed where only half are anal. Youíve been warned.

So what about value? I donít think itís here. While you get access to about 1700 scenes, many of which are HD, and most of which feature stunningly beautiful models, you have to suffer through some poorly designed sites to get those. Some may disagree, but I think a reasonable comparison is with Teen Mega World (where some duplicate scenes are located). TMW has 3300+ scenes for a TBP price of $20 while TCC has 1700 scene for $50. The last time I spent that much for a site was because the site offered some unique porn that was expensive to make and had a limited audience. TCC makes great porn, but it isnít unique and it isnít more expensive to make than comparable sites so the price just isnít worth it. Iím glad I joined because it is exactly the kind of porn I like, but with the lack of information on updates and the high price I wonít be back.

Pros: - Provides photos and videos in an under-served niche
- Wide variety of anal-themed videos
- 235 videos
- 185 photo sets
- Updates with a new video every three days or so
- Has live cam shows regularly
- All but a few videos are exclusive
- Part of a small network
- Supports DL managers
- Active webmaster
Cons: - 50GB daily download limit, but there is also a 10GB / hour limit.
- Probably a bit too extreme for many porn viewers
- Streaming begins on opening a scene link
Bottom Line: I seem to start off a lot of reviews with this statement: this site is definitely NOT for everyone. A regional brewery near here used to have a tag line: ďThose who like it, like it a lot.Ē The same might be said of this extreme anal play. Roxy Raye exists in a very narrow niche of extreme anal play. The only other site I know of that is similar is hotkinkyjo, the site featuring the Russian model with an expandable colon. The big difference is that with Roxy Raye you can download the scenes while with HKJ they are streaming only.

I know that any reader who either has no interest in this niche or finds it abhorrent will wonder how I can describe this site as having a broad range of scenes within the extreme anal niche. But Roxy really does cover a broad range of activities, albeit with the common theme of something large going into her ass. There are sex scenes (b/g and g/g), there are IR scenes, there are the large toy insertions, there are pissing videos, there are speculum videos (vaginal and anal), there is fruit and vegetable insertion (hey, sheís looking after her health), there is fisting (vaginal and anal, by self, men and women), there are regular camshows (with downloads available shortly after broadcast), there is some public nudity and there are even rosebuds. And donít ask what that last thing is. If you donít know, do yourself a favor and donít bother learning about it.

The site currently has around 235 videos with a new video being uploaded about every three days. A vast majority of these are exclusive, though there are a few uploads of scenes that sheís done for Evil Angel. Approximately 30 of the scenes are downloadable files of the live camshows that she does regularly. I didnít have an opportunity to take in a live show so I canít comment on those. The only drawback to the live shows is that prior to mid-2012 they are very low resolution. I suspect that this is dictated partly due to file size because the newer ones arenít great resolution (640x480 with some at 960x540) but are still as large as 1.5GB.

Most scenes have some download options with files being offered as both WMV and MP4 formats. More than one resolution is usually offered too. Obviously the options and resolutions improved as the site kept up with evolving industry standards. The newer MP4s come in at 1920x1080, 3000kb/s and 29fps. That seems like a low bitrate, but the scenes look crisp. The other most common resolution for older, non-HD scenes is 960x540, 2500kb/s. These look fine on a 24Ē monitor.

Photos are also offered, with most of the sets being taken as part of the video shoots. Resolutions vary here too, but most are decent at 1225x816. Photos are updated with a new set being added once every ten days or so.

The site layout is relatively simple, and thatís not a bad thing. If youíre familiar with how Hustler looks, it is pretty much the same as that. I canít find any link between Hustler and this site, but they look a lot alike. While there is no search function there are tags that help sort some things out.

The site commits one sin that is too common these days. I may be the only person who dislikes it, but I dislike it a lot: when you open the link to a scene it starts streaming automatically. I really wish that sites would stop this.

There is a download limit of 50GB per day, which is reasonable for a site with so much exclusive material. But there is another limit that is easier to hit. If at any time in a one hour period you exceed 10GB youíll be shut down for a while. I donít know how long, but it seems to be an hour or so.

The site supports download managers for queuing up scenes and I had no obvious problems with links timing out.

The membership includes access to ten sites in total. Normally Iíd provide some information on the other sites but in this case most of them are MILF-oriented and therefore not something I have a lot of interest in, so I didnít spend any time there.

Of note too is that there is an active webmaster who responds to questions here and by email. Thatís rare and appreciated.

The bottom line (pun not intended) is that this is a very good site offering some videos and photos in a rare niche. The site is easy to navigate, the videos are available with some choices, streaming is offered, there are a lot of variations on the main theme and the price is right. The biggest caveat to anyone considering a membership is to make sure you have an interest in this niche. If your porn experience is glamcore then this isnít the site to dabble in something new. This site is an excellent value and Iíd recommend it for anyone interested in the niche.

Maybe the whole site can be summed up in something that Roxy says during a scene. How often do you hear an attractive young lady say ďI think this is the biggest apple Iíve ever put up my assĒ? If youíve ever heard those words spoken for real before, I need to hang out with you.

Pros: - 580+ videos
- HD available
- Lots of download options
- Many lesser-known models
- Some A-listers early in their careers
- Beautiful models
- HD available in approximately 400 videos
- Owners are remastering old videos
- Remasters donít count as updates
- Regular updates
- Serves a few underserved niches
Cons: - Daily download limit
- Some may find the scenes repetitive (see below for details)
Bottom Line: I joined this following my interest in Ďcastingí site. While this isnít a true casting site it is close enough that it made it worthwhile joining. The site follows a simple but effective formula: models show up to tape a POV scene with lots of oral and usually some fucking.

Before deciding to join the site I read the reviews here and at TBP. Two recurring comments were obvious: the scenes were too formulaic and many of the models arenít amateurs.

While I agree that the comments on these two facts are accurate, I think how you see them is more subjective. There is a definitely a formula here: there is a short interview, the girl gets on her knees and gives the guy head (with various POV camera angles), there is some vaginal sex, there is more head with an oral pop shot, some cum play and a swallow. Then there is another shorter scene where pretty much the same action happens. There is nothing about this niche that requires such a set formula but I like it and it works. The goal is to show off the model and the formula works well to do that.

As for some of the models not being amateurs, this is also true. There are many well-known models here but that doesnít detract from the site. Some of the best known adult stars are here, but theyíre early in their careers. If youíre like me, this is a strong draw to the site. Also, even those models that arenít as well known are often listed on index sites but that also happens with many other Ďamateurí sites too. Porn is fantasy based so if I get to see an A-list model early in her career Iím still happy. To be fair, often when the model is an adult star the site makes note of that and doesnít try to hide it.

The site currently has close to 600 videos, with most around 20 mins long. The newer scenes are uploaded with a lot of choice. 95%+ offer streaming, and downloads are available in Quicktime, mobile (for phones and higher res for tablets), WMV (HD and SD). Newer videos are 1920x1080, 8,000-12,000kb/s and 29fps. Some others come in at 1440x1080 and 1280x720. Approximately 400 of the videos are HD and that will increase since new videos are being added (one per week) and the older videos are being remastered to improve them. This seems like a sure sign that the site owners actually care about giving the best product to their customers. The good news is that the site doesnít count the remastered scenes as updates, but the bad news is that the oldest videos on the site are low resolution and often only offered in Quicktime. I donít know how often remastered videos are uploaded.

Photos are offered and are available as zips, but this really is a video site.

Site navigation is simple, but on a simple site why complicate things?

The site supports download managers for queuing downloads, though TBP reports that download managers are blocked for simultaneous downloads. Links seemed to time out after 30 minutes or so, which is reasonable.

This wonít be a negative for everyone, but if youíre a fan of anal then there isnít much here. The site lists six anal scenes (which isnít accurate since there is at least one other that isnít listed), but only three of the anal scenes are actually exclusive.

The site bills itself as being mostly about oral, but they sell themselves short. There is vaginal intercourse in almost every scene and if youíre a fan of lingering cum play, sucking after the guy has come and swallowing then youíll appreciate the site too. One other Ďnicheí that I like but is rare is where the guy stays fully clothed and the woman is naked. That happens in a lot of scenes here and was a pleasant surprise. One of the reasons that the model may stay clothed is to hide tattoos. Some models Iím familiar with had clothes that hid tattoos, and the camera angles stayed away from any visible tattoos.

Iím no fan of download limits and Iíll never see them as anything other than a negative but in this case the site has at least set a reasonable limit or (nominally) 25GB per 24 hour period. While that is the stated limit, my experience was that I was cut off at anything above 22GB. I was also cut off at below 20GB which leads me to believe that any streaming also counts against you. The problem with that was that the only photos of the model were in the banner on the page so I often ran the first few seconds of the video to see if I liked the model. Doing that seems to count against you.

The bottom line is that this is an excellent site that has a lot to offer. While I donít agree with all of the choices the owners have made, most of that is subjective. Some people have complained about the price, and it is higher than average, but considering that this is an independent site with 580+ exclusive videos of beautiful models, the site is an excellent value. I definitely recommend joining, and Iíve already added the site to my Ďrejoiní list.

Hardcore Gang Bang

Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: - Rare niche
- Coupled with Bound Gang Bangs
- Membership gives you discounts to other Kink sites
- Many A-list models
- 59 scenes
- Updates weekly
- Usual well-done Kink.com site
- Supports download managers
- Streaming and downloads
- Choices for file type and resolution
Cons: - Not for the faint of heart, probably among the most extreme sites on the internet
- Female model name should be more prominent
Bottom Line: Let me start with a few of caveats:

ē This is probably one of the most extreme hardcore sites on the internet. Consider this a ďmay not be suitable for all audiencesĒ warning.
ē Many of the scenes use a r@ape fantasy as the scenario. I say this for two reasons, first to warn potential members of this fact, and second to tell people that I had an email chat with Khan and while he okayed describing the scenes in this way he said that using the actual word could cause problems for this site so if youíre commenting DO NOT USE THE WORD lest you incur the wrath of Khan.
ē Each scene, regardless of the scene set-up, has an interview with the model both before and after the scene. The initial interview CLEARLY shows that the model will be shooting the scene fully informed of what the scene will entail and fully consents to it and that there is a safe word in use. The concluding interview makes it clear that the model had nothing occur that she did not fully consent to. In all the interviews I watched the models reported that they enjoyed the scene.

In all my years of buying porn online this is possibly the most extreme hardcore site Iíve ever joined. Other Kink sites come close, but the use of a particular scenario in many of the scenes is what put this over the top. A membership here is definitely not for everybody.

Unlike a lot of other Kink sites, this one does use a scene setup. There is a storyline that plays out at the beginning. What I mean that is with sites like Device Bondage and The Training of O, which can be quite intense, there is really no scene setup. A model does a shoot and thatís it. Here, there is a story and much more often than not that story involves some sort of force by a group of men against a woman. No matter how you slice it, most of the scenes here involve simulated r@pe. If you think youíd be offended by that, and Iím sure a lot of people would be, then donít subscribe. Apart from the setup, the entire scene tends to follow the script with lots of slapping, spitting and generally rough sex.

If done wrong, these scenes could likely cause some problems for Kink, but each scene has an interview with the model both before and after the scene where it is made clear that model knows what sheís getting into and then the post-scene interview confirms that. There is no mistaking that this is pure fantasy.

Speaking of the models, one thing that struck me about the site, and it likely speaks to Kinkís good reputation in the business, are the number of A-list porn models who appear here. With material this extreme youíd think that only the hardest of the hardcore or fetish models would be here, but that isnít the case. Models like Chastity Lynn, Casey Calvert and Tara Lynn Foxx are here. Sure, they arenít exactly wallflowers but I am still pleasantly surprised to see them here.

There are currently 59 scenes uploaded with a new one being added each week. Most of the scenes last about an hour, with some exceeding that.

As with all other Kink sites, they get the technical stuff right. The site is well laid out and the user can change how the site looks by selecting how much information will be displayed on the main page.

One minor quibble is that with each scene the entire cast is credited. I have no problem with that, but the female should be given top billing in all cases. Sometimes you have to read through several names before you get to the female model. I buy porn to see the women. The men are just props.

Streaming and downloads are both available, and Kink offers a broad range of choices. There are four streaming resolution options available. Downloads are available in WMV or MP4 with each format being available in five resolutions. I downloaded the MP4 HD option which is 1280x720, 5000kb/s and 29fps. (For comparison, ďlargeĒ comes in at 960x540 at 1500kb/s and ďmediumĒ is 640x480 at 825 kb/s.) If you can spare the space it is definitely worth it to download the HD files. They are large though, with the average being 2GB.

Videos are also available as clips if you have a slow connection or only want one specific part of a scene.

The site supports download managers and I had no issues with links timing out with five or more scenes in the queue.

To add more value to this membership, it includes a membership to Bound Gangbangs. BGB stopped updating in August 2012. A member explained here explained that this was due to billers being uncomfortable with the content so in order to save it the models were no longer to be bound. There are 93 scenes that are pretty much like what youíll find on HCG but with the models in bondage while it happens.

Obviously the audience for this material is limited, but if you like this extreme porn (with full consent from the model) this is an excellent choice in a rare niche. Iím not aware of any other sites like this, but if there are some, Iím betting that this is better than the others.

Pros: - 372 BJ scenes
- 200+ (and growing) scenes in HD
- Lots of up Ďn comers
- Beautiful models
- Updates regularly
- Impressive options for both streaming and downloading
- TBP/PU discount
- Supports download managers
- Comes as part of a collection of sites giving access to almost 2700 scenes
- Appear to be exclusive
Cons: - Older scenes (pre-mid-2009) are in low res only
- Page-to-page navigation could be improved
Bottom Line: I realize that I wrote in my My XXX Pass review that I didnít really see this as a network so it may seem odd that Iím now writing a review of something that I donít necessarily see as a stand-alone site, but I wanted to offer a counterpoint to some of the criticism aimed at the site (and the main site, MXP) by other PU members.

First off, while he may not be around to defend his position, I think that there is a high probability that PornoProís comments are really directed at the other BJ Ďsiteí on this network, Throated. PornoPro wrote that ďWhen a guy puts his hands on the back of a girls head and tries to ram his cock down into her stomach, it turns me off big time.Ē That may describe the BJ scenes at Throated, and with a name like that it shouldnít be a surprise to find rough oral. I canít say for sure that this kind of rough oral doesnít exist on OTBJs, but if it does I havenít seen any in all the scenes Iíve downloaded and watched.

Regarding the main site, others have complained of problems with emails being sold and slow download speeds. Iíve been a member several times and have never experienced anything negative and only had fast downloads.

Moving on to the review, this is a great site that delvers what the title promises: there is only oral, and all of the models certainly look like theyíre 18 or 19. Many of the uploads feature models who are relatively unknown or who are just beginning their porn career. This means that you get some fresh faces, but you also get access to some early scenes of models who will go on to be A-listers. The modelís looks are fairly consistent: petite, some tattoos and piercings. Basically what any 18 or 19 year old looks like these days. There is very little ethnic diversity though.

The scenes follow a bit of a formula in that they usually start off with some interaction between the model and her partner, there is often a bit of striptease and then the oral begins. The scenes may not be true Ďcouplesí porn, but theyíre close. Most of the scenes run between 20 and 25 minutes long. I canít guarantee that these are exclusive, but Iím 99% sure they are.

As with the other Ďsitesí here, the options for viewing or downloading the scenes are impressive. WMVs are available in resolutions of 160, 240 and 360. MP4s are offered in 160, 240, 360, 480, 540, 720 and 1080. Streaming is available as 160, 240, 360, 480 and 540 and mobile users can download in 160, 240, 360, 48, 540 and 720. No member should feel cheated on these options, unless youíre hooked on HD in WMV format.

I downloaded the 720p scenes and those come in at 1280x720 at 4800kb/s and 29fps. Subjectively they look crisp and sharp.

The Ďsiteí currently has 372 scenes uploaded and it is updating with a new scene being added every week. While that sounds like a slow pace, keep in mind that this Ďsiteí is packaged with seven others (a new one was recently added Ė Sun Lust XXX) so youíll get two, three or sometimes four updates per day. (Keep in mind that your membership gets you almost 2700 scenes in total.)

The one flaw here is the same one that pops up throughout this network. Some may have no issue with it too. The problem is that sometime in mid-2009 they began uploading the HD stuff. Thatís not bad, but there is a sharp cut-off point where you go from having the highest resolution at 360p and then it takes a leap ahead to 1080p. It would have been great if back in 2007 or 2008 they had started offering 720p. Having said that though, over half the uploads are available in HD and all new scenes have that option.

The site allows download managers and I experienced no time-outs, though in the past I found that links timed out at around the two hour mark. I found downloads to be fast and steady. I had no periods of reduced speeds and never had a download stop on me.

One minor complaint that Iím going to start complaining about in reviews is that when a site is structured to show multiple scenes on a page and then there is a list of page numbers on the bottom, the site should also give members the option to select a page number directly. At the main site there are 179 pages, but if you want to go to page 100 you can only click forward five pages at a time. This would make the site much more easily navigated. And this occurs in lots of sites, I just happened to complain about it here first.

As I said at the beginning of this, I donít want to detract from the other reviews and comments but I do want to let other PU readers know that I experienced no problems with this site or the others that come with the membership. Further, I really like this site and the others offered. They offer great value at the discounted price available through TBP/PU, they have a large number of HD videos and they continue to add more daily. I highly recommend that anyone interested in this type of porn take the plunge and join.

Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: - Large site
- Red Light District makes some great porn
- Access to lots of their catalogue
- Supports download managers
- Good download speeds
- Most of the newer uploads have good file resolutions
Cons: - Scenes not associated with the DVD they were released on
- Scenes widely available on other pay sites
- Many Ďsitesí in the network are not updating
- Last update at all was almost a month ago
- Site may be dying or dead
- Some scenes offer no video
- File resolutions vary widely
- File resolutions not provided
- Photos offered are poor quality
Bottom Line: I find that studio sites can be a gamble. For every one like Evil Angel that does it well, there are ten that come up short. Club Red Light is lumped in with the majority of studio sites and continues the tradition of being mediocre.

Most people will know the Red Light District studio well since they have been around for more than a decade and their material is widely available on DVD sites. As a mainstream porn studio they cover all of the regular niches. Their offerings are almost exclusively gonzo and are harder-edged. This really isnít couples porn.

The site markets itself as a network by creating different niche Ďsites.í But since the scenes are all from RLD DVDs and are all available on the main page then it really canít be treated as a network. (While CRL is the name of the network, it is also a separate site within the network.)

The sites, with some stats (number of scenes / last update date), are:
Club Red Light Ė 1099 / Dec. 7, 2013
Addicted to Boobs Ė 188 / Nov. 16, 2013
Ass Crazed Ė 148 / Nov. 8, 2013
Choke on My Load Ė 79 / Oct. 27, 2013
Cumfart Cocktails Ė 38 / Oct. 31, 2013
Cum Stained Casting Couch Ė 191 / Oct. 28, 2013
I Just Fucked My Best Friendís Mom Ė 88 / Sept. 21, 2013

Throat Gaggers Ė 110 / Jan. 24, 2013
Toe Service Ė 28 / May 29, 2013
Young Tight Latinas Ė 104 / Oct. 26, 2013

One caveat when counting the scenes: I have no idea because they arenít labelled as such, but some of the scenes only offer photos and no videos. Another caveat on updates: youíll note that the last update on the entire site was three weeks ago. Many of the sites havenít updated in months. I wonít be the one to call for last rites, but maybe we need a porn priest on speed dial.

I really canít understand why a studio who produces DVDs wouldnít structure their website around those DVDs. To make matters worse, while some of the sites have some RLD series names, and the sites have scenes from that series, there are additional scenes in there too making it harder to sort. For others like me who have a large porn collection, not identifying the DVD title means that I inevitably downloaded a lot of scenes that I already had.

Apart from not having the scenes associated with their respective DVDs, the site is laid out in a logical manner. The main site shows thumbnails for 24 scenes per page spanning all the Ďsites. Opening one of the thumbnails brings you to that sceneís page where you can stream, download the scene (if video is available) and the photos.

There seems to be a point in March, 2008 when they started offering higher resolutions. Prior to that date the scenes were offered as WMVs in 640x480 and lower. I realize that a lot of these scenes werenít filmed in good resolution so I canít fault the site for this, but they are pretty poor quality. When higher resolutions were offered starting in 2008 they were first WMVs at 1280x720 at 4000 kb/s. A problem though, is that even though some of the scenes uploaded after 2008 are labelled ďHDĒ on the thumbnail, they still only come in at 640x480. With file data not provided the best gauge for guessing resolution is file size. The last two years saw another change with the file type switching to MP4. For the past two years the files are offered as an ďMP4 HighĒ and an ďMP4 Medium.Ē The ďHighĒ are 1920x1080 at 5000kb/s and 29fps. They look good, but not as crisp as on some other sites. The ďMediumĒ are 960x540 at 3000kb/s and 29fps. I know this will sound really fussy on my part, but I do wish they offered 1280x720 to bridge the gap.

While there are photos offered (and singles or zips) there are only a few low-res photos offered with each scene, and some of those are screencaps.

The site supports download managers and I had no trouble with links timing out. Download speeds were good. I experienced a problem the first few days of my membership with the site crashing and giving me an ďinternal server errorĒ message. Usually going back to the site and logging in resolved it. It hasnít happened in the past few days so it may have been a temporary glitch.

I found that I had downloaded several scenes where the video and audio were not in sync. It may have been that with bad luck I stumbled on the few like that, but it is more likely that this occurs in other scenes too.

The bottom line is that this is a site that could have been great but isnít. RLD makes some great porn but the cons really outweigh the pros here. Add to this that the site may be dying and I am certain that I wonít be back. The only people Iíd recommend the site to would be a person who is just starting to buy and collect online porn and doesnít already have many RLD titles.

Status: Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
Pros: - Excellent site in a relative under-served niche
- 165 scenes
- Updating regularly
- Many good looking models
- Most models are Ďamateurí
- ome porn stars early in their careers
- Now uploading in 1280p
- Packaged with another excellent amateur site
- Male talent who never tries to upstage the models
- Excellent camerawork and editing
- Innovative use of split screen and picture-in-picture
- Supports download managers
- Bills through CCBill
Cons: - Only the most recent updates are HD. Older scenes can be low resolution
Bottom Line: Lately Iíve developed an interest in Ďcastingí videos and this is one of the better sites in that niche. A membership here includes a membership to two other sites: Exploited College Girls and Net Video Girls. ECG is a great site and makes a membership here better. NVG isnít terrible, but, in my opinion, it is the weakest site of the three. I should point out that the TBP review doesnít say anything about the additional sites but Iíve joined twice now and both times that was the deal. I just checked again and it is still being offered.

The siteís premise is that a guy passes himself off as a porn agent and has women come by to talk about getting into the business. The setting is an office and the scene is recorded using two cameras on tripods and a handheld POV camera. The Ďagentí explains the business to the model and then she is encouraged to make a demo tape that the agent will then use to get work for her. The demo consists of the model getting naked, masturbating, performing oral on the agent and then getting fucked. Many of the scenes have some anal sex but it is usually short. Even if you arenít as big a fan of anal as I am, the anal isnít obtrusive. Some may criticize the site as being too formulaic. It is that, but in my opinion, the formula works so why fix what isnít broken?

Most of the models are unknown to me, though there are a few who went on to porn careers. Tanner Mayes (as Evangeline), Kacey Jordan, Shawna Lenee (as Kara), Amia Miley and Chastity Lynn are here, early in their careers. While there is no way that the premise could be real (given the paperwork involved to do porn), the models play the role well and really add to the feel of the scene. There is some variety in models with different body types, though the majority are Caucasian and petite. Most of the models are very good looking. There are a few videos with pregnant models if youíre into that.

There have been negative comments about the male Ďagent.í I donít share those opinions because I find that he knows that members arenít joining to see him so he is unobtrusive.

Using two stationary cameras and a POV camera could be the siteís weak point, but it isnít. The camera work and editing are great and really work well for the atmosphere. One feature that I really like is the use of split screen or picture-in-picture. For example, the model may be bent over the desk in a standing doggy position and one half of the screen is a camera pointing at her face while the other half is the POV camera held above the modelís ass.

There are currently about 165 videos on the site with most being about 30 minutes long. The site does update regularly, but since my membership expired four days ago I canít confirm the update schedule but my recollection is that it is at least one new scene per week.

The scenes are only available in one file type, WMV, but they are available as clips or as the full scene. There are usually two resolutions available (labelled as high and low). I only downloaded the highest resolution full scenes so I canít comment on the lower resolution or clips.

Speaking of resolution, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that the site appears to have undergone a re-work and at the same time it looks like the last 12-15 uploads are available in 1280x720 at 3500kb/s and 29 fps. These look great. File sizes are between 500-800MB, though there are a few that hit a gigabyte. The bad news is that before the site started uploading HD the resolutions were lower. With a lot of the older scenes on the site that can be pretty low. Most are 768x432 (which still look good), some are 576x324, some are 640x360 and some 480x360. Obviously the smaller resolution files were uploaded a long time ago and donít look good by todayís standards.

The site supports download managers and I had no issues with links timing out. I didnít encounter any speed reductions or download limits. The site bills through CCBill.

The bottom line is that this is an excellent site if you like this niche. Itís packaged with another excellent site (and a mediocre one too). The models are good looking and the scenes are fun to watch. The production values are good with good camerawork and editing. While the site has started uploading HD videos that was only recently so most of the videos are of lower resolution. Not only do I highly recommend this site but it is on my list of sites to regularly rejoin to download new scenes.

Pros: - Large site with 460+ videos available
- Ability to sort videos
- Updates daily with one scene per day being added
- Videos available in streaming and downloads
- Videos available in multiple resolutions
- Photos available (singles and zips)
- Beautiful models
- Good mix of American and European models
- TBP/PU discount
Cons: - Some ads and upsells
- Photo resolutions seems a bit low
- Only one video type (MP4)
- No anal (which many will consider a plus)
Bottom Line: This review isnít technically a review of Babes network but is of the identical clone, Babes.com. I really canít imagine why a company would have two identical sites, but they do.

This site is another in the Ďartcoreí niche with hardcore porn done with a softer edge. If youíre looking for slapping, throat fucking and lots of anal pounding, then youíll want to look elsewhere. There is none of that here.

What you will find here are lots of scenes with beautiful women in solo, lesbian and b/g scenes. The site has offers the ability to sort by scene type, which is an excellent feature for getting to what you prefer. My preference is for b/g, so selecting for Ďcouplesí removes the solo and lesbian from what I can see. The hardcore b/g scenes all follow a familiar format with kissing, foreplay (for both partners), vaginal sex and the money shot. As is the norm with these kinds of sites, the scene lengths are approximately 20 minutes each, in keeping with the natural feel that the site is trying to create. The production values are high with good lighting and editing in the scenes. The lesbian and solo scenes offer what youíd expect with scenes in those niches.

The models are a mix of American and Europeans. Some are well-known porn stars while others are lesser known. They are all relatively young (18-25) and most are petite. One advantage to sites like this that have more sensual scenes and also offer solo and lesbian is that they seem to attract newer models who may only do solo or g/g for now. Itís a great opportunity to see some new models (like Emily Grey. Please, please, please, Ms. Grey, make the leap to hardcore!)

The site is fairly large with 189 couples videos, 95 lesbian videos and 179 solo girl videos available. The videos are all available as streaming or downloads. Streaming is available as RTMP or HTTP (I have no idea what that meansÖ) in 720, 480 or 320 resolutions. Downloads are available in 1080, 720, 480 and mobile resolutions. MP4 is the only file type offered. I found the 720p videos to be a good compromise between video quality and file size. The 720p videos come in at 1280x720, 4000kb/s and 29fps. Subjectively, they look great with no pixilation that some sites still have at higher resolutions.

The site supports download managers and I had no problems with the links timing out. The download speeds were what I get with other sites so they donít try to limit speeds, even at peak times. Updates are made daily with one scene per day being added.

The site offers lots of photos too. Currently there are 122 Ďcouplesí photosets, 95 lesbian and 179 solo sets. The photos are available as either zips or singles. The few photosets I downloaded all had a little over 100 photos. Photo resolutions seem a bit low at 1663x2494.

There are no obvious negatives to the site. There are ads and upsells, but those happen at other sites too and they arenít obtrusive or distracting. I did find it a bit annoying that when sorting scenes you had the option to see what scenes are available on other company sites like Brazzers, Mofos and Twistyís. I think the trade-off is that if you really like a model it gives you access to trailers and you may want to join another site if you like what you see.

The bottom line is that this is an excellent site with some great sensual porn available. The models are beautiful and the sex is hot. At the discounted price available through TBP/PU this site is a great value if youíre looking for porn with a softer edge.

Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: - 20 videos
- Updates with one video added per week
- High production values
- A-list models
- Sensual more than just sexual
- Run by Open Life
- TBP / PU discount
Cons: - Small site (but growing)
- No tour pages
Bottom Line: EroticaX is a new site created by the people who run the Open Life network. Itís a stand-alone site and not part of the Open Life network. The site offers a TBP discount at $15 and TBP also reports a full trial. I joined for a month so I canít independently confirm the trial is full.

For a buyer who prefers harder-edged porn Iím always surprised at how much I like sites like this. This site is the latest in a crop of relatively new Ďartcoreí sites with an emphasis on high production values and a focus more on sensuality rather than raw sexuality. Each of the scenes starts slowly with some lingering shots of the model and then moves into some passionate sex. Not to create confusion Ė this is still a hardcore site with everything that youíd expect from that. These are not hotel-grade softcore videos. The videos are also a more natural length with each running about 25 minutes. It seems that aiming for a more sensual scene by not including gagging, throat fucking, gaping and spitting really brings the length down to something closer to the time it takes for real people to have sex

Many of the scenes also use some interesting locations. While there are some beaches and other outdoor locations, they also use some pretty swanky apartments or condos.

The models in the scenes are mostly from the current A-list in the adult industry. Unfortunately the site doesnít offer much information to the prospective buyer so there appears to be no way to see whatís available before you join. But if youíre interested, models such as Allie Haze, Casey Calvert, Dillion Harper, Lia Lor, Maddy OíReilly and Teal Conrad all have scenes here. (One thing to note: I also have a membership to the main Open Life network and found one scene was on both sites. That may be an issue for some.)

As this is a new site it is still quite small with only 20 scenes being available as of this writing. A new scene is added weekly so the site will continue to grow. Depending on your interest and internet connection, a member may want to consider the trial for now until the site grows. One feature that I like is that you can select a tab that will show you what scenes will be uploaded in the coming month. The downside to that is that you may see that there is a pending scene you want to see but itís just past when your membership will expire.

The site is created by Open Life, a company thatís been recently created but was formed by another company that had been around for a while and had a good reputation. Iím not 100% sure, but damn close to that sure, that the site (and other Open Life sites) has to be affiliated with Fame Digital because their user interface and range of download options is the same. Speaking of which, there are a lot of options for downloads. WMVs are available in 160p, 240p, 360p and 480p. MP4s are available in those resolutions too and are also available in 540p, 720p and 1080p. Iíve dropped my practice of downloading the 1080p scenes because I watch most of my porn on a 24Ē monitor and the extra space on my hard drives canít be justified. The 720p files I downloaded came in at 1280x720, a bitrate of just below 5000kb/s and 29fps. The technical side is definitely well done.

Photos are available Ė as singles or zips Ė but this is definitely not a photo site. The pics are 1280x1920.

There are a few things that are a bit subjective, but they bear mentioning in case anyone else is wondering too. Likely owing to the Ďartcoreí niche of the site, some things wouldnít fit and you donít see them. Anal sex is one. One scene is tagged as anal but there is no anal in it. I think the site got a little ambitious because on the scene tagged as anal the male model accidently bumps up against Jenna Rossís anus while in the spoons position. The other missing element is the facial. Body shots are the norm here. I donít consider these cons, Iím just mentioning them in case someone expects Ďsensualí ass-poundings and facials.

The other semi-complaint that I have (that is also subjective and not factored into the score) is the editing and transitions. It appears that the site is trying to convey a more natural and passionate sex than typical gonzo, but the editors too often choose to cut out transitions between positions. I realize that there is probably a lot of forage left on the cutting room floor Ė figuratively, of course Ė but I think showing more transitions to different positions would convey more passion and, in my opinion, turn the heat up a notch.

The bottom line is that if you like high-production-value porn with some of the hottest models in the business today and you like to season your porn collection with some sensual and passionate artcore youíd do well to give this site a try. Yes, the site is small now, but the discount makes it a reasonable value that will only improve as the site grows.

Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: - Collection of 10 sites
- Large collection (1600+ scenes)
- HD available on many scenes
- Good use of niche tags
- Supports download managers
- Updates by adding one scene to the network every three or four days
- Screenshots and photos available
Cons: - Scenes can get a bit repetitive
Bottom Line: Perfect Gonzo is a collection of ten sites grouped around the main page. While it may be considered a true network because each of the sites serves a clear and distinct niche, all of the scenes are available through the main page too so that means that the sites themselves can act as high-level niche tags to quickly sort in or out preferences or dislikes.

The sites available (with some basic details) are:

All Internal: 322 scenes, featuring vaginal and anal creampies
Ass Traffic: 314 scenes, featuring anal sex
Cum for Cover: 82 scenes, featuring blowbangs with facials
Fist Flush 68 scenes with fisting (for those with an interest, all of the scenes are g/g only, with some g/g/g and only about 10% of the scenes have any anal fisting)
Give me Pink: 259 scenes, featuring solo masturbation
MILF Thing: 59 scenes, with MILFs obviously
Prime Cups: 158 scenes for large-breast fans
Pure POV: 70 POV scenes
Sperm Swap: 189 cum-swapping scenes
Tamed Teens: 127 scenes with 18 and 19 year old models

Each scene is accessible through a medium-sized thumbnail showing the modelís face. That thumbnail opens into a separate page that has tabs for the full scene, screenshots, photos and a trailer. There is a short description of the scene, a hyperlink to other scenes by that model and a series of (hyperlinked) tags for niches in the scene. Members have an opportunity to leave comments and some of those may be useful in deciding if you want to see the scene.

Screenshots and photos are available as singles and zips.

For video, HD is offered on approximately 70% of the scenes. Where HD is offered there are four choices for downloads, all of which are in mp4 format: 1920x1080 (12Mbit), 1280x720 (5Mbit), 960x540 (2.5Mbit) and 480x270 (1Mbit). File sizes are given before you download so you can decide on which version you want with all the information you need. File sizes for the highest resolution can be a bit daunting, but I appreciate that the site makes them available. I downloaded the 1280x720 resolution and subjectively they look great. Where no HD is available, only the two lower res files are offered.

One important point is that the site only began putting the upload date on scenes in July 2013. That makes gathering a lot of stats difficult. What that does reveal is that several of the sites havenít updated since the dates began being added. These include Cum for Cover, MILF Thing, Pure POV, Sperm Swap and Tamed Teens. What that also means is that when I say 70% of the scenes on the network are available in HD that doesnít mean that 70% on the sites that are no longer updating are HD.

All of the scenes have high production values with the lighting, filming, editing, etc. all being top quality. All of the models are European with many being well known in the adult business.

The network is updated every three to four days with one scene being added to the network, not to each updating site.

The site supports the use of download managers and if the links time out they do so reasonably because I had no problems with that.

One thing prospective members should be aware of is that thereís a lot of anal sex here. For me, thatís no problem. In fact, itís why I joined. Ass Traffic is all anal, but there are a lot of other anal scenes throughout the rest of the sites.

I realize that this next point is subjective, but I found the scenes to be a bit repetitive and sometimes a bit boring. I know this is gonzo, and I know that this means a particular style, but I found that many of the scenes lacked heat. My opinion is that heat is most often formed by sexual tension, and that tension is best built at the beginning of the scene. Most of the scenes here are shot with little interaction between the models before they get down to business. Gonzo can have great set-ups that build tension and heat; just ask John Stagliano. It may be that since many of the models have little English that lessens the ability to create sexual tension. And this is not to take away from the scenes because they are great. (And in fairness, I find directors like Mike Adriano and Jay Sin to be repetitive too, but I still buy and download anything I can that they produce.)

The bottom line for me is a bit of a mix. I can definitely recommend that anyone with an interest in the network join. The network has the three things that I think differentiate a great site from a merely good one: they have great porn (hot models and high production values), they have a well-laid-out website and the porn is easy to stream or download. The network offers over 1,600 scenes, many in HD, for a fair price. The volume of high quality porn for a reasonable price makes this a great value. The difference for me is that while I recommend that people join, I likely wonít be back myself, but the reasons for that are purely subjective and shouldnít be taken into account unless your preferences are like mine.

Pros: - 660 Private titles
- Likely the most lavish productions of any current large studio
- Stunning models
- Some HD available
- Supports download managers
- Lots of anal (might be a con for some)
- Updates with two scenes (not full DVDs) added per day
Cons: - Not a true network of sites as indicated
- Download speeds can vary
- Sorting functions are limited
- A few minor issues with separate links leading to the same scene and wrong star names
Bottom Line: This is one of the better studio sites where Iíve had a membership, but since I find most studio sites lacking in some key areas that isnít necessarily praise. This is a good site that offers solid value though.

Youíll note that I refer to this as a site while others consider it a network. The TBP review notes that a membership to the main site comes with ten sites in total. Thatís sort of true, because those other Ďsitesí exist, but it is also misleading. The additional sites contain nothing different from what is on the main site. The additional sites are more like niche tags. If you sort by DVD and then open a DVD youíll see that some of the scenes in the DVD are tagged with the watermarks of those bonus sites. While this may be useful for sorting a niche you like, no one should join expecting access to both Private and bonus sites offering additional and unique content.

Currently the site has 660 DVDs available. Unlike so many other studio sites it appears that Private hasnít neglected to upload some scenes in DVDs. For those who know Privateís videos they donít need an introduction, but for those not familiar with them, Private is a European studio (likely the oldest in the industry) known for high quality productions. The studio uses only the best looking models (mostly European but a few American A-listers too), has incredibly high production values and often shoots in exotic (and expensive) locations. Like so much of European porn, anal sex is frequent which may deter some members. If the site has a weak point, it isnít the quality of the porn.

The siteís main weak point, as seems to be common with studio sites, is in the website execution. The site itself is simple, which in many cases is an advantage, but in this case more detail and options should be made available. For example, when sorting by DVD (my preference) the only option is to sort by popularity or title. There is no option to sort by upload date or HD versus SD content.

Iíll confess that Iíve become a bit of a Ďsize queení in recent months: life is too short for low res porn. The result is that unless there is a specific scene that I really want, I wonít download anything less than 720p. On this site, that meant leaving a lot of porn on the table. (I canít really say how much HD is available because there is no way that I can find to sort for it, but I estimate that maybe 40% is available as HD.) Given that some of the DVDs available here were filmed prior to HD I canít fault the studio for this and I assume that all newly shot and uploaded DVDs will be available in HD.

Where only SD is available there is usually only one option of 720x480, though some come in at 720x540. The only file type offered is mp4. Many scenes also offer a lower-res version for mobile devices.

The HD scenes still only offer mp4 but there are more options for resolutions. Those are 480p, 720p, 1080p and mobile. I downloaded the 1080p and those came in at 1920x1080 at 4,100kb/s and 25fps. Interestingly (for a non-tech guy) the file sizes are much smaller than Iím used to seeing for scenes of this resolution. I donít understand how theyíre encoded, but the site really has struck a great balance between how the scenes look (they look great Ė clear and crisp) and the file size. I certainly appreciate their effort.

Scenes are also available for streaming in the same resolutions offered for downloads.

The site allows download managers and I had no issue with timeouts. I realize that some have reported being limited to five downloads at once, but since I only use a manager to queue up downloads for one-at-a-time download I had no issues. I was also able to continue navigating when downloading contrary to what some others have reported. Download speeds were up to normal standards but I did see speeds drop off on a few occasions. I usually saw 10+MB/s but it could drop as low as 3MB/s for short periods.

A couple of minor issues popped up in that on more than one occasion I went to download a scene and my download manager said I already had downloaded it. It appears that some of the links may lead to the wrong scene. Another relatively minor quibble is that on maybe a dozen or so of the scenes I downloaded the female talent was incorrectly listed. As this is the studio that shot the video Iíd like to think they could avoid this mistake.

The bottom line for me is that this is a solid site that offers a lot of top-quality porn for a fair price. While the site could use more tags and search tools, and should continue to add HD content, even as it stands it offers great value for your porn dollars.

Pros: - 74 scenes posted
- All scenes in HD
- Stunning models
- Large majority of models are fresh and unknown
- The male talent is rather Ďtalentedí if you like big facials
- Updates regularly
- Screenshots and photos available
- TBP / PU discount
Cons: Major cons:
- Links time out after approximately 10 minutes
- Limited options for members with slower connections

Nitpicky cons:
- I had trouble with the MPG files (may just be me though)
- Scenes may be repetitive
- LOTS of ads
- Meaningless file names
- No tags or ability to sort by scene type

Subjective cons:
- 3 anal scenes?? Is that it??
- Theyíre affiliated with BangBros so watch out.
Bottom Line: Lately Iíve had a thing for Ďcastingí sites and have been joining anything that looks decent. A week ago that led me to this site. And in case youíre wondering, yes, I know that these are staged, but theyíre staged so well that a viewer can get lost in the fantasy.

The site dates back to just over a year ago and not much has changed in the way the scenes are shot except for the location being much more upscale in newer scenes. The scenes follow a set formula and rarely deviate from that. Girl walks in, presents her ID, is interviewed, stands and undresses, girl poses nude and fingers herself a bit on the couch, guy standing/girl kneeling blowjob, occasionally becomes guy sitting on couch / girl kneeling blowjob (in some rare scenes with rimming), sex starts with girl standing bent over desk, girl on back on desk, guy laying on back on couch with girl riding, then switch back to girl on knees oral with a damn good facial. Most of the scenes stick pretty close to that formula. Some may find that repetitive, and it is, but itís saved by the hot female models.

You could argue that even the models are formulaic in that they are all in their late teens or early twenties, all are petite (but not skinny) and all but a few have B or C cup breasts. Given the age group, tattoos and piercings are common but not overwhelming. Most of the models are new to me, though I did recognize a few faces that I have seen before. To say that all the models are good looking is either an understatement or an exaggeration depending on your preference. I say the former, but if you prefer larger or older models, then this site may not be for you.

The site has a very simple layout that is easy to use. On each page there are 12 scenes shown by a large thumbnail with the modelís name and the date of the upload. There are currently 74 scenes uploaded and it appears that a new scene is added every six days. Each scene is approximately 50 mins long.

Opening that thumbnail brings you to a page to access the scene. Iím a big fan of HD material and always download it when it is available, so it may seem odd for me to complain that there arenít many download options. The choice is HD in MPG or WMV and an MP4 in 750x422. File sizes for the HD files averages 3GB, so this might not work for members with slower internet speeds. I downloaded the WMV version and all of those came in at 1920x1280, 9000kb/s and 29fps. Subjectively, they arenít bad, but they arenít the best Iíve seen either. The MP4s look pretty good so they may be a good compromise for slower connections. Still, more choices are better.

One problem I had that may be unique to me is that the MPG files stuttered badly. I tried multiple scenes on two computers and used two players and had the same result each time. This may not happen to you, but before you download a lot in MPG you should test them on your computer.

Photos and screencaps are available too. The photos are 1500x1000 and the screencaps are 1920x1280. The big difference is that the screencaps arenít available as zips.

The site does support download managers, but the links time out after about 10 mins. Given the file sizes this means that lining up more than three scenes probably wonít work. Also, prepare to rename each file before you download it Ė they all use the same generic, meaningless name.

One annoyance that I can live with is the number of ads on the site. I donít mind ads if they help keep the site going, but I had one big problem here. Given that the site is affiliated with BangBros, and BB has a reputation for some pretty unethical subscription and billing practices, I avoided even going near the ads for sites I otherwise might be interested in for fear of getting burned with an unwanted subscription.

I realize that not everyone will share my opinion on this, but I was disappointed to find only three anal scenes on the site. Many other Ďcastingí sites have a lot of anal because the genre lends itself to that sex act. ďBut honey, the big money is in analÖĒ This actually leads me to another problem that may not be a problem, and thatís that there are no tags or meaningful ways to sort the scenes. Why this really isnít a problem is that with each scene closely following a formula tags are probably unnecessary: look at the model. Do you like her? If yes, you know exactly what sheíll be doing in the scene so download it.

The pros far outweigh the cons here when you consider the merits of the site. You have access to over 60 hours of HD porn at a discounted price. The scenes all have some hot, young and fresh models. The production values are high and the scenes all look great. What more could you ask for? I definitely recommend this site.

Pros: - Large site
- Updates regularly
- Good variation in body types
- Variation in level of tattoos and piercings
- Class-leading video quality in newer videos
- Many download options
- Streaming available (with options)
- Supports download managers
- Fans of Joanna Angel should definitely join Ė lots to see
- TBP discount
Cons: - No zips for pics
Bottom Line: The first time I joined this site I surprised even myself as Iím not a big fan of tattoos and piercings. Or so I thought.

The site seems to be quite a bit different now than the last time I reviewed it. Back in 2009 when dracken commented on it, and even as recently as a year ago when I reviewed it, the site had a Ďcommunityí feel to it, like it wasnít necessarily a professional porn site but a site owned and run by people into this lifestyle. (That was and still is highlighted by the obvious connection that Joanna Angel has with this site. Any of her fans NEED to get a membership here.) The site still has that feel to it with the blogs, a forum, event listings and chats, but it is clearly more Ďprofessionalí now.

The last time I reviewed the site it was broken down into several sub-sites. Those are listed in my previous review if youíre interested in seeing what those were. Those divisions seem to be gone now in favor of putting all the videos up on the main page and relying on a pull-down menu to sort by niche. This may be a personal thing, but I prefer the new way: all the scenes are right there and there are convenient ways to sort by star or niche.

The site is part of the Fame Digital family of sites. In my opinion, Fame has the porn Midas touch in that they nail the Holy Trinity for porn sites: the porn is incredibly hot with high production values, the site is well organized, and the porn is easy to access for streaming or downloads. The only caveat with Fame is that you need to track which of their billing companies you paid through because youíll need to know that when it comes time to cancel.

Another way the site is different now is that they use a look more common to other Fame sites: the scene thumbnail opens into a page where all your options for streaming and downloads are in sub-menus. If youíre familiar with any of Fameís sites youíll realize that this is both intuitive and easy to use. Also like other Fame sites, this one offers some of the widest choices for streaming and downloads. Other porn companies need to copy this. The oldest videos on the site date from 2008 and are available for download in either WMV or MP4 in 160p, 240p, 360p and 480p. Obviously these arenít great, but they look okay and they were great when they were uploaded. The really good news, however, is that like most Fame sites, this site jumped into HD early: videos uploaded as early as mid-2009 offer both 720p and 1080p in MP4 format. This was way ahead of the curve for most adult sites in 2009. The icing on the cake is that however fame encodes its scenes, in either 720 or 1080 they look amazing. Some sites offer 1080 that still looks pixilated. Please Fame, if youíre reading this please offer encoding lessons to other sites. Or just buy them out.

I downloaded the 1080p versions and those come in at 1980x1280 and 6800kb/s bitrate.

The site currently has 719 scenes of varying length. The scenes run the gamut from solo, POV, b/g, group, g/g, anal; in other words, just what youíd expect from an adult site. The models also have some variation so depending on the look you like youíre apt to find lots to satisfy you. The site updates frequently and regularly with several scenes being added weekly.

If the site has one glaring fault itís that pics are still not offered in zips. I know this is primarily a video site, but for those who like to collect photos of their favorite models it would be a good idea to offer zips.

Download managers are supported and like other Fame sites this one has resolved the issue of short-duration time-outs. Links donít last forever, but they will last about an hour and that is a huge improvement over what was offered even a year ago.

So that leaves dealing with the 800lb gorilla in the room: that the models donít sport a mainstream look. If that is an absolute deal-breaker for you, then there is no way youíd like this site. If, however, you have even a remote interest in this niche then I highly recommend checking this site out. The models are all really beautiful and but for the tattoos and piercings they look like the beautiful models that work in other parts of the porn industry. There are varying levels of body modifications too: not all the models are heavily tattooed and pierced; some are very light on both. Katie St. Ives, for example, is on this site and I doubt many would consider her a niche model.

The bottom line is that just in the past year this site has made some changes that, while subtle, have made a great site even better. Itís a large and growing site that offers excellent quality (in production values and in how they look on your monitor or TV) at a discounted price and features unique-but-beautiful models. Whatís not to like? I highly recommend joining.

Pros: - Decent sized site (135 scenes)
- Some attractive women
- Supports download managers
- Streaming available
- Lots of rimming (yes, I consider this a pro)
- Scenes are hard without being abusive
- Updates
Cons: - No HD
- Highest resolution is barely industry standard
- Seems to be using even lower resolution now
- Many broken links
- Some scenes are streaming only
- No customer support
- Some women not attractive
Bottom Line: I recently discovered that I like Ďamateurí porn. The qualifier for that is that I like porn that uses models that obviously have some interest in the adult industry and are now trying video, as opposed to a couple who record themselves and post it on the Ďnet.

The setup here is pretty much the same as used on similar sites like Exploited College Girls: the scene begins with an interview of the model, she gets naked, there is oral and then sex. I think this formula works so I donít find it repetitive, but I can see that some might. Most of the sex is vaginal, but there are several scenes that feature anal too, but not enough that Iíd consider this an anal site. One controversial sex act that does occur often is female on male rimming, which occurs in a majority of the scenes. I like watching that, so I find it a positive, but I understand that Iím probably in a minority.

Most of the scenes are around 45-50 minutes long. While the female models are asked to do things they probably wouldnít do in real life, the scenes are in no way abusive as can occur on other sites. There is no face fucking or other extreme acts like that.

Most of the models are quite attractive and there is a decent variety among body types so that most members can say they found a lot of models that suit their tastes. As with Ďamateurí sites though, there can be some models who are questionable. I swear that one of the models looks like a younger Geddy Lee. And as a Rush fan, it pains me to say that. It could have been worse though: the model could have looked like Neil Peart or Alex Lifeson.

Unfortunately the bad outweighs the good on this site. The material itself is well shot (while there is a lot of POV it is well done), lighted and edited. Most of the women are attractive and most of the sex is fun to watch. The site is let down by the web design itself and what is actually made available to members.

The site is simple and I have no problem with that. It is a small site with 135 scenes available so there is no need for a fancy layout and powerful search function. It would be nice to see some tags but I can live without those. Of the problems on the site, one of them is that the 135 scenes are only theoretically available. I didnít count them, but there are many dead links for pages and more for downloads.

Speaking of downloads, this is the biggest problem with the site: all of the older material is offered in only 320x240 resolution. (Only one download choice is offered per scene. Or, if you prefer, the only option is take it or leave it.) I canít be convinced that they were anywhere near state-of-the-art even when they were uploaded. The site did improve that when they upgraded the downloads to 720x480. Those are passable and look pretty good on a 24Ē monitor, but get pretty grainy on a large TV. More options would be better, including an HD download choice.

But wait! It gets worse!

It appears that the site may have made a choice to actually revert back to the 320x240 size. I say this for three reasons: 1) the newest update is low resolution, 2) a blog update in late August reported that the site would be only using low resolution downloads to thwart theft, and 3) a couple of emails to the site to ask if my suspicions were true went unanswered.

If itís true that the site has reverted to low res for downloads, this alone will cause me to not recommend the site and not rejoin. I get that piracy is hurting porn, and probably hurting smaller sites more than big sites, but surely there is a better way to curb piracy than kicking your customers in the balls. Iím an active porn buyer and I frequently rejoin sites, but if this is what I get, I wonít be back.

Two relatively minor issues too: 1) if you have an option for members to contact you, you should read your email and respond. If you donít respond, then donít make the option available, and 2) the third most recent update features a stunning young lass who puts on a great performance, but for some reason it is only offered in streaming. This really cheesed me off, and my reasonable question on future availability went unanswered.

As for some technical stuff, the site updates with approximately one new scene being added weekly. It also supports download managers with no obvious timeouts or download limits.

This is some decent amateur porn that is let down by a too-amateur site. I could live with that but if my suspicions are correct that they are making things even worse for members I canít recommend the site. If the site responds to this review or to my email with some information on better downloads then Iíll reconsider my refusal to recommend and the score.

Pros: - Unique and interesting site
- Part of a larger network
- Supports download managers
- Good video quality
- High production values
- Lots of well-known models
- Updates regularly
- TBP / PU discount
Cons: - Save your confirmation email so you know what website to use to cancel
- Not much interaction between performers and viewers on the live shoots
Bottom Line: This site is part of the My XXX Pass network but it is relatively unique and I figured worthy of a review.

First, I should point out that even though the main claim of the site is that the posts are recorded live I didnít actually watch any of them as they were being streamed. All of the shoots are available as part of the archive and are easily downloadable so that was what I opted for. Given that the shoots are recorded as they were happening I was a bit disappointed to see that there really isnít much interaction between the performers and the viewing members. In the scenes where there was communication via chat that added to the heat of the scene. Regardless of this oversight, the shoots are still great to watch but for a live site they lack that extra element of interaction that usually comes with live shoots.

The site is further broken down into ten categories, most of which have self-explanatory titles. These are (with the number of scenes currently on the site in brackets):
ē Boot Camp (7)
ē Cocksucking Challenge (48)
ē Fuck a Fan (2)
ē Immoral Live (22)
ē Immoral Orgies (60)
ē New Girl in Town (31)
ē Squirtamania (99)
ē Titterific (54)
ē Toss My Salad (19)
ē Wheel of Debauchery (76)

This is, admittedly, very subjective, but I found the Wheel of Debauchery scenes to be the most fun to watch. The gimmick is a large wheel with various sex acts written around the edge so the model spins it and does what the wheel lands on. (The funny part is that there is, quite obviously, someone laying down outside the cameraís view stopping the wheel on specific acts. That makes sense, since a model who doesnít do anal isnít going to start just because the wheel stops on Ďanal.í) I also like the premise of Fuck a Fan and hope they shoot more of those.

Most of the scenes feature some of the biggest names in porn so you know there will be a high level of professionalism. The professionalism applies to the production values too, with the camerawork and lighting being well done too.

The site updates regularly with a new live scene being shot every several days. I donít know how long it takes to upload a scene to the archive but it doesnít appear to be too long.

The site has a good sort feature so you can sort for just the scenes on Boot Camp, for example, if thatís your preference. You can also sort by star and there is a search function too but I found that the latter didnít work well as any scene found that way linked back to the main page rather than the scene you wanted.

Like other sites affiliated with Gamma, there are a lot of options for how you view or download the scenes. WMV downloads are offered in resolutions of 160, 240 and 360. Mp4s are offered in 160, 240, 360, 480, 540, 720 and 1080. Streaming is available as 160, 240, 360, 480 and 540 and mobile users can download in 160, 240, 360, 48, 540 and 720. I downloaded the 720p and those came in at 1280x720 at 4000kb/s and 30fps. (Some of these options arenít available for older videos.) Iíd normally go for the highest resolution available but those arenít for the faint of heart. Most of the scenes are well over an hour long, and some can last more than three hours, so a scene of that length at 1080p is close to 10GB. I figured that 720p was a good compromise. To their credit, the site has no obvious download limit so if you really wanted the best there is nothing stopping you from getting the best. The 720p look great on both a 24Ē monitor and a 32Ē TV.

Also like other sites affiliated with Gamma Entertainment, you need to be careful with your membership information to ensure where you need to go to cancel. It appears that there are many sites that they use for billing (all owned by Gamma, I assume) and you need to save your confirmation email to get the site youíre billed through. Losing that information would probably cause some frustration. Even with that information, cancelling is a bit more involved than with CCBill, Epoch or the other big billers. Here you have to enter credit card information and a captcha which brings you to a further screen where you have to enter your membership name and email address and another captcha. It works, but until I learned to save all my membership information I got frustrated trying to cancel.

Another advantage to the site is that joining through TBP / PU gets you a significant discount. Thatís the good news. The bad news is that this discount wonít carry through past the first month so be careful to cancel if you donít want to see the price double. (I should add that in many cases with Gamma sites youíre offered the first-month price when you start the cancellation procedure.)

The bottom line is that this is a fun site to watch. Itís got some of the hottest models in the business. The production values are high, the site supports download managers and doesnít have any download limits. On top of all of this you get it all for a great discount.

Bottom Line: My XXX Pass might try to act like a network, but it really isnít. Thatís not a bad thing though. It claims (and has) several Ďsitesí but all of that material is made available on this main site, so if all you visit is My XXX Pass then youíll have had access to everything. There is no disadvantage to doing things this way (though some may say it is an attempt to make the site seem bigger than it is) and the advantage is it offers a quick way to sort by general theme. Iím not into MILF blowjobs, for example, so I can just avoid visiting the Ďsiteí that caters to that niche.

The Ďnetworkí contains almost 2500 scenes and these can be sorted by the various sites. The sites are: 1000 Facials, Immoral Live, Mommy Blows Best, Only Teen Blowjobs and Throated. Most of what I write here applies to all the sites, though I do plan on writing a separate review of Immoral Live due to some unique offerings there. As you can tell from the list, the sites are mostly oral-themed. For those wondering (because I did) the scenes on Throated arenít brutal like many other sites with similar names, and 1000 Facials isnít a bukkake site (like I hoped it might be). There are some multi-shot scenes but theyíre mostly one girl, one guy. (And also in case youíre wondering, there is very little anal on the network. There are 150 scenes listed as having anal but fewer than 10 are available in HD.)

The Ďnetworkí updates regularly with at least one and as many as three scenes being added per day. These are spread across all the sites so donít take this to mean that youíll get a new scene added to any of the individual sites each day.

In the most recent uploads there are a lot of options available. WMV downloads are offered in resolutions of 160, 240 and 360. Mp4s are offered in 160, 240, 360, 480, 540, 720 and 1080. Streaming is available as 160, 240, 360, 480 and 540 and mobile users can download in 160, 240, 360, 48, 540 and 720. I downloaded the 1080p and those came in at 1920x1080, 6300 kb/s and 29fps. Average files sizes vary, but since most of the content is only oral theyíre short and come in around 1GB. The scenes look great: theyíre crisp and sharp and demonstrate some high production values. In less recent uploads, some of the options are narrowed, but the full 1080p is still there.

When it comes to file resolutions, there is one point worth noting. The oldest scenes on the site date to 2005 so we canít expect full HD in those, but the resolutions are quite low with only 160 and 360p being offered in both WMV and mp4. The other issue worth noting is that there wasnít a gradual increase in resolutions where they added 540p and then a year later added 720p. It just appears that on a certain date (in summer 2009) they flipped a switch and started uploading HD video. There is a blend of HD and SD for a while, but it is disappointing to click on a scene uploaded in late 2009 to find that it is only offered in low res. I donít want to leave a prospective member with the wrong impression though Ė this still means you get access to almost 1400 videos with full 1080p available. Thatís a great value no matter how you look at it.

I experienced a few minor navigations issues. Each page has 15 large thumbnails and the intention is that you can hover your mouse over those and see a brief slideshow of other thumbnails from the scene. It does work, but first a large box with the scene name will appear for a few seconds obscuring the thumbnails. The second issue that may just be an issue with Windows 8 is that hovering over a thumbnail causes it to go blank for a few seconds. I found that I had to wait for the thumb to come back and then wait for the box to disappear before I could see the thumbnails.

The site gets the technical bits right: it is well laid out, easy to use, supports download managers (with reasonable timeouts of at least two hours) and has good download speeds. The scenes themselves are well done with good lighting and editing. The staff and male talent donít fall into the trap of thinking that the scenes are about anything other than the female models.

One caveat with any site managed through Gamma Entertainment, as this is: theyíre a reputable company but pay attention to where youíre being billed from. They donít use common billers and they seem to have a bunch of proprietary billing companies. Take note of the billing site name as that will be necessary when you want to cancel.

The bottom line is that this Ďnetworkí has some great porn and they make it easily accessible. The production values are high and the HD videos look great. The content is mostly oral so if thatís something you like you canít go wrong with a membership here.
