Pros: - Massive site
- Stunning models
- Mostly exclusive scenes
- Class-leading production values
- Well organized layout
- Fast downloads
- Supports download managers
- TBP / PU discount
- Photos available (with zips too)
- Excellent quality photos
Cons: - Nothing really. At three weeks into my membership I haven't found anything to complain about.
Bottom Line: Iím probably the last PU member to take out a membership on this network. I finally took the plunge and joined the network and was immediately impressed by the quality here. Iíve said in the past, and I stand by it, a site has to do well in three areas to be a great site. First, the porn has to be good, second, the site has to be well organized, and third, it has to be easily accessible.

I should step aside for a moment and say that Iím writing this review as a first-time subscriber. I realize that some PU members have said that they donít like some of the recent updates. I donít see anything in the latest updates that would cause me to agree with that, but Iíll admit that I may be just overwhelmed as this is my first visit here.

Regarding my first criterion Ė good porn Ė I think this network is among the best Iíve ever seen, and Iíve been an active porn subscriber for many years. Subjectively it is incredible. If I were to allow more subjectivity in my scoring this network might just be 100. Itís that good. The network is so big that there are likely models to satisfy most interests, as long as you like specific types of women. (Iím not being sarcastic Ė BBW, hairy, etc are legitimate niches but you wonít find those represented here.) Many of the models are exactly what I look for: young and petite. Last year xexbot wrote that ďThe skankiest girl on their sites will still be ten times hotter than the best looking girls on other sites.Ē Heís right: there is really no clearer way to describe the models here. The sex too, is what I like. I donít think the site is too heavily skewed to anal sex, but if you donít like anal you might think that it is. There is definitely a lot of anal, even on the sites that arenít anal-themed.

This criterion isnít just subjective though. Even if I didnít like the models Iíd have to admit that the production values are top quality too. It is obvious that the directors and technical staff are highly skilled.

My second criterion (site organization) is also met, but it could be better. Thatís the bad news. The good news is that they are working on that now. Just in the past few weeks theyíve made some improvements and it appears that theyíll soon have an extensive list of tags to help sort material. For now, each of the networkís sites is fairly unique so that alone is a good first cut at sorting things. Once in a site you have a large thumbnail for each scene on the page and rolling your mouse over it gives you key data like female models in it and the date it was uploaded. Depending on the site there could be one page or many. You can also search the network by model and doing so brings up all her scenes in the network. Some have said that the navigation is too simple. It is simple, but it does work. I have no complaints about it but I am looking forward to the massive number of filter tags coming soon.

As for the porn being accessible, the network scores high here too. You have the option of streaming or downloads with many download options available. Obviously the newer scenes have more options, with three different resolutions each of wmv and H.264. When available I took the medium range of H.264 and these are a great compromise between quality and file size. These came in at 960x540 at 3000kb/s and 30fps. Those numbers donít do the scenes justice though as they look better than higher resolution scenes at some other sites. Obviously the older material has fewer download options and in some cases limited options for file types.

I used a download manager with no issues. Download speeds were as good as Iíd get anywhere else but the real advantage is that the links donít seem to time out at all. If they do, the time-out duration is long. And given the amount of data I was downloading the first week or two of my membership I can guarantee you that there is no download limit.

The network is huge. There are 21 primary sites and 18 bonus sites. The network has almost 11,000 scenes spread over these sites. A vast majority of the material seems to be exclusive and the only non-exclusive stuff I was aware of was some older U.S. DVD stuff on some of the bonus sites.

For a (primarily) video site they definitely donít scrimp on photos. I suspect a photo collector could join here too and be very happy. The photos offered are often both screencaps and photos and theyíre available as singles or zips. Many sets come in two resolutions. The highest resolutions look great and come in at approximately 3000x4200. Older photos arenít so high, of course.

So would I recommend joining? Yes, yes and yes. This is a huge network of top-quality porn with some incredible models that is available on a well-organized site that has fast downloads. And it offers an amazing price for PU members. This is definitely in the top three sites/networks Iíve ever joined and I highly recommend joining.

Pros: - Broad range of model types
- Logically laid out
- Good mix of amateur and pro models
- High quality photos
- Low annual price
Cons: - Photos only, no videos
- No zip options
- Multiple clicks to get to high-res pics
- Some overlap with their free site
- Some topless, none nude
- No monthly membership, annual only
Bottom Line: This isnít a porn site in the traditional sense. Iím merely stating an objective fact for prospective members rather than making a subjective judgment. Whether the site is worth joining is probably up to how much you like what they have to offer, which, I guess, is one way that this is definitely like a porn site.

Microminimus is the Ďcommunityí site for Wicked Weasel Bikinis. WW is an Australian swimwear company known for making Ďbarely thereí swimwear like micro-thongs. They also offer swimwear made of see-through material. There are also some accessories, but the overall theme of the company is skimpy swimwear. This site offers photos of WWís professional models as well as submissions from their happy customers.

The site is logically laid out. Photos can be sorted by newly added, updated, popular and wallpapers. Also on offer are photo sets from Ďcompetitions.í These are set around a theme, Christmas, for example, and users submit photos and members vote on them. I find these are a great mix and so far Iíve spent a lot of my time on the site here. There are also archives for Cover Girls (seems that this can be a pro or amateur) and contributor archives. Another advantage is that they offer archives of the photos of their professional models that they use at their main site where they sell their bikinis.

There does appear to be some overlap between what is available for free at the commercial site and this Ďcommunityí site though I really have no idea how extensive that overlap is. There is a difference though: on the free site you only get lower-res photos while on the paid site you get access to higher-res photos. That may not be such a big deal though as the low-res photos on the free site are close and in some cases larger than the low-res photos on the paid site. (The low-res on both free and pay are approximately 950x663.) The higher resolution photos come in at 853x1280. Thatís not much of a difference and it might not be a big enough difference to counter the work you have to go through to get the higher-res photos. The only lure for spending the $25 annual fee to join will probably be access to more photos, not higher-res photos.

The way the site is laid out and the overlap among how the galleries are organized it is pretty much impossible for me to say with any certainty how many galleries and photos there are here. There are certainly hundreds of photos, and more likely well over a thousand. Ten thousand? I doubt it.

Because the site relies so much on user-submitted photos there are a broad range of model types here. There are models who look like they could easily get modelling work at legitimate fashion shoots, models who could easily get work on adult sets, and models who probably shouldnít model. I realize that may seem harsh, but some women shouldnít wear WW bikinis. You donít see me flaunting my 46-year-old body in a speedo. (Photos available upon requestÖ)

The photo types themselves vary, but there is one certainty: this site doesnít have full nudity. Some of the models go topless, some donít. Some of the photo competitions specifically prohibit topless submissions. I find this very odd. Why make that choice? My guess is that the photos can then be used as marketing on their public site to drive sales. Even with the ban on nudity many of the photos can be pretty risqué. We are, after all, seeing photos of women in micro-mini bikinis that are often made out of translucent material. Some of us older guys can still draw on the days when our imaginations played a role in arousal.

If the site has a major flaw (and it DOES have a major flaw) it is that there are no gallery zips offered. So if you like a particular model or theme then be prepared to work to get what you want. To make matters worse, clicking on a photo opens the lower-res version. To get the higher-res version you have to go near the upper-left corner of the screen a click an icon which will then open the high-res photo in a new window. Then you can save it. And close the new window. And go back on the original page to click on another photo to start the labourious process all over again. If I wanted a hobby that required work Iíd take up cabinetry.

So can I recommend this site? No, I canít, but I donít feel too bad about that since this really isnít a site that fits well here either. I think the target market for this site is someone whoís girlfriend posts pics here and you want to show those off. If they offered zips I might lean to recommending it (but probably still wouldnít). If they offered video I might think about recommending it, but they donít. The good news is that it isnít expensive at $25 per year. The bad news is that I now have to remember to cancel the membership in 11 months.

Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: - Huge collection of DVDs
- Many top studios
- TBP / PU discount
- Supports download mangers (with some limitations)
- None of the studios on the site are low-grade
- Something for most tastes
- Some unique and rare niches represented
- Many viewing and download options
- Many ways to sort the scenes
Cons: - Some overlap with other Fame sites
- Links time-out too quickly
- Too many older scenes donít list the female talent
- No search function
Bottom Line: Iíve really liked and highly recommended most (if likely all) of the Fame sites that Iíve reviewed and Fame Digital is no exception. This site offers a huge amount of high-quality porn for an amazing price.

For readers not familiar with any of the Fame sites, they offer DVD downloads from several major studios like Devilís Film, Silverstone and Evil Angel. The same studios are represented here and there is some overlap with other Fame sites but unless youíve recently been a member at several Fame sites youíre still going to find a lot of material here that wasnít on the other sites.

The main page is simple and effective: you have a choice of displaying the available scenes by individual scenes or by DVD. There is a drop-down menu listing all the DVDs on the site and ability to sort by the usual porn themes. You can also view by studio or by model. There are a lot of options for sorting the huge amount of material here, but there is no way to specifically search for anything: there is no search function available. While this is certainly a shortcoming, the many different options for sorting minimize the need to search. In most cases you can still find what you want but you may need to use a few more steps than with just an effective search function.

The site currently has over 3350 DVDs. My thought is that a lot of sites that try to please all tastes generally fail, but this site offers a wide variety of porn but still remains appealing. Youíll find all the usual porn niches here, like legal teens, anal, lesbian, etc., but youíll also find a pretty substantial collection of transsexual and bisexual material. Youíll also find rarer niches like pegging and Ďgrandmas.í Iím not into the niches that I just mentioned so I canít really give an opinion, but if youíre specifically looking for some of them this site has them, but they arenít the main attraction here. The site is by far a conventional site that just happens to have some different Ďspicesí if youíre so inclined. (And if youíre like me and not so inclined, there arenít enough of these niche DVDs that you feel cheated.) As for the more conventional porn, it runs the gamut from hard-hardcore (like Rocco Siffredi) to Ďartcoreí (from the Daring Film studio.) Regardless of what your tastes are all the DVDs I downloaded have one thing in common: the production values are second to none in the industry. Unlike other sites that seem to promote quantity over quality, Fame Digital doesnít rely on Ďfiller.í

One thing I especially liked about the site was the availability of older series and titles. Obviously the download options are fewer for these older scenes, but just having access to them is a big plus.

Like other Fame sites, there is no shortage of viewing options. Streaming is available in multiple resolutions, downloads are available in two formats (WMV and mp4) and in multiple resolutions. Obviously the resolution options are fewer with older material, but most of the newer DVDs offer the scenes in up to four WMV resolutions and up to 7(!!) mp4 resolutions Ė and thatís not counting separate downloads for mobile devices which offer a further number of resolutions. Many of the newer scenes offer both 720p and 1080p. Also on offer for newer scenes is 540p, which the site calls ďWeb HD.Ē This is an excellent option for people like me who watch most of their porn on a monitor. This is higher than the 480p that most sites offer (and is still offered here) without having to download a large 720p file. The 540p files come in at 960x540 at 1800kb/s and 30fps. The 720p come in at 1280x720 at 4800 and 30fps.

The site does offer photos but this is definitely NOT a photo site. The photos are shot during the scenes (but arenít screencaps) and look good, but the main (unforgivable) flaw is that there are no zips.

The site isnít perfect but the flaws are so insignificant that they donít detract from the value. Like all Fame sites, download managers are supported but the links time-out fairly quickly so it isnít possible to queue up a lot of files at once. Older titles often donít list any performers, and with many of the European titles (like Roccoís stuff) the female talent isnít always credited. There may be three girls in a scene but only one name is given. Minor, but still annoying.

The one flaw that I think really does detract from the site is that they frequently donít upload all the scenes from a DVD. In one case, for example, Tanner Mayes is the cover girl but her scene isnít available. (And Fame, I take that as a personal insult!)

The bottom line is that this is an exceptionally good value for the TBP/PU discounted price (and still good without it). This is a huge amount of high quality porn on a site with a simple but effective layout with multiple viewing and download options. I highly recommend joining. I know Iíll be back.

Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: - Small network with a couple of unique sites
- Some HD scenes
- Photos offered in some scenes
- Photos offered as singles and zips
- Streaming available
- Options available for downloads
- Good mix of known and amateur models
- TBP / PU discount
Cons: - Three of the Ďsitesí canít really be considered as such
- Only one (or maybe two) sites MAY be updating
- Some scenes donít support download managers
- Older scenes are sub-par quality
- May be a bit too misogynistic for some
Bottom Line: Hardcore Doorway is a small network of ten sites. Most of those sites are relatively small and three of them donít really deserve to be called sites. Most of the sites havenít updated in years and the most recent updates cause me to question whether the entire network is dead. The good news, however, is that some of the material is pretty good if it happens to be the kind of thing youíre into.

This network is the one of two affiliated networks, the other being Adult Doorway. AD may be better known since it happens to be home to one of the most abusive, misogynistic sites on the ĎnetĒ: Facial Abuse. The sites on Hardcore Doorway use the same male talent, the same sets and many of the same models, so it shouldnít come as too much of a surprise that much of the material here is pretty extreme. This is definitely NOT porn for everyone.

The site is made up of ten sites, but Iíd only apply that label to seven of those. These are (including some current details):

ē Sperm Suckers: 258 scenes, last updated three weeks ago
ē Latina Abuse: 135 scenes, last updated almost three months ago
ē Amateur Throats: 26 scenes, last updated almost two years ago
ē Anal Recruiters: 33 scenes, last updated about two and a half years ago
ē Huge Rubber Dicks: 20 scenes, last updated about three and a half years ago
ē Lesbians Love Sex: 46 scenes, last updated almost four years ago
ē Sexy Suck Jobs: 26 scenes, last updated almost four years ago

So it appears that only Sperm Suckers may be updating. The earlier updates were posted about once a week so I canít be sure if theyíve stopped given that the latest scene is now three weeks old. It is also possible that Latina Abuse is updating. The update schedule there is sporadic with past updates being posted as frequently as one every three weeks and sometimes just once every five weeks or so. I think itís fair to say that the others are now dead.

The remaining three Ďsitesí are:

ē Monster Cock Madness: 16 scenes
ē Fuck Me POV: 11 scenes
ē Her First Porn: 27 scenes

The last update for each of these Ďsitesí was four and half years ago. The reason I donít think these should be considered sites is because they offer limited scenes, those scenes are not exclusive, there is no scene information available, the scenes are only available as a series of small (20MB +/-) clips and theyíve obviously been abandoned.

I think given the fact that only two sites MAY be updating it is fair to say that no one should join this network expecting to stick around for a while to get more updates. So the question then becomes is this network worth a membership at all? Obviously the answer to this question will be different depending on what you look for in a site, but given that the material on the seven main sites is fairly rare (rough, hardcore anal with lots of genuine creampies and oral cum-play, for examples) and appears to be unique a membership here can be pretty good value, especially if you factor in the $20 price offered to TBP / PU members.

All of the sites (excluding the three non-sites as noted above) use the same simple but effective layout. There are 20 scene links per page in each of the sites and those links open into a separate page where you can stream or download the video. Streaming is in one resolution only, but the latest scenes do offer a lot of choice for downloads. WMV files are offered in 720x480, 640x480 and 320x240. There is usually an option for low-ish quality MPEG and MOV files too. In many of the newer scenes there is at least 720p offered and in a lot of scenes there is 720 and 1080p on offer. The 1080p comes in at 1080x720 at 5000kb/s and 30fps. Each scene is also broken down into smaller clips if that happens to be your preference.

Photos are available as singles and zips and they are pretty good at 1440x960.

Other minor issues are that some of the files wouldnít queue up for downloading with a manager. But others would queue up. I have no explanation for this and canít say exactly how many files fall into either camp. The other problem I had was that I fairly frequently got kicked off the site and had to log in again. Both of these are minor, but still frustrating. (Additionally, I always had to log in through the site I joined even though the network join in page was identical AND the network provided me with a link to sign in through the network. That was frustrating until I figured it out.)

So is this site worth the membership? My answer is a tentative yes. Tentative because there are few updates and much of the older material is low resolution, but on the plus side this is porn you wonít find elsewhere, and it is definitely some of the hardest stuff available. Add in the discounted price and I think this network is worth a look even if only for a one-time membership.

Pros: - Interesting niche material
- Good mix of known and unknown models
- HD available on newer scenes
- Photos available on most scenes
- Real anal creampies in many scenes
- TBP / PU discount
- Part of a small network
- Most scenes have download options
Cons: - Problems with download managers
- Site kicks you out regularly
- Small site
- No longer updating
Bottom Line: Iíll deal with the 800lb gorilla in the room first: this site is not for everyone. This is a site affiliated in some way with Facial Abuse and Facial Abuse is well known here as being among the most abusive, misogynistic sites on the Ďnet today. Prior to joining this site I knew that there was an affiliation, but was unsure as to how close the connection was. The connection is close enough that this site and Facial Abuse use the same sets, the same male Ďtalentí and many of the same models appear.

First the good news: the scenes here are pretty interesting if you like this stuff. This is not porn that youíd sit down and watch with your wife or girlfriend unless you wanted her to leave you. The males in these scenes go out of their way to make the women feel degraded and abused, both physically and emotionally. For those readers who arenít into BDSM material there is a vast difference between BDSM and abuse. Sites like those on the Kink.com network might be seen as abusive by the uninitiated but it is clear that the women are consenting and enjoying what is being done to them. At Kink, the models they use seem to genuinely get off on being submissive and those dominating them are actually giving those submissive models a lot of pleasure. Not so with Anal Recruiters. These guys abuse women for their own pleasure and either these female models are some of the best actors in the business or they are genuinely NOT having a good time. (As an aside, many of the models are quite attractive but Iíve not seen them elsewhere. I wonder if shooting for this site turned them off from porn.) The scenes donít really follow a formula except that each scene involves finding ways to physically and emotionally degrade and abuse the models. Many of the models here seem to be in obvious physical pain. ButÖ to be fair I have to point out that there are just as many who seem to take some enjoyment from their shoot here.

The other good news is that over half of the scenes on the site are offered in HD. (The bad news is that the HD scenes are only offered in WMV format.) Both 1080p and 720p are offered in most cases where HD is available. The 1080p comes in at 1080x720 at 5000kb/s and 30fps.

The newer scenes have download options available, though the standard format seems to be WMV. WMV files are offered in 720x480, 640x480 and 320x240. There is usually an option for low quality MPEG and MOV files too. Then there is the above noted HD option. (I donít understand coding, but the 1080p files arenít much bigger than the 720p so those are a good option.) The download options are reduced with the older files. The scenes are also available as smaller clips and streaming (in one resolution only) is also available. You canít fault the site for providing options for members to access the material.

Photos are available, either as singles or as zips. Regardless of when they were uploaded they come in at 1440x960.

The site itself is small with only 33 scenes. And since it hasnít updated in over two years I donít hold out any hope for the site to keep growing. I know thatís an instant deal-breaker for some potential members, but if this is a niche youíre interested in or you want a scene with a specific model (for me it was a Veronica Jett sceneÖ) the site might interest you.

The overall layout of the site is simple, but I found it literally Ďclunky.í Iím assuming that this is a choice that the webmaster made, but the main page is set up so that when you scroll it doesnít flow smoothly but clunks along often causing you to overshoot where you want to be. The main page shows the scenes available and you have a link to either the photos or the video which then opens into a new page with the available options for each.

Other problems are that I kept getting kicked out of the site and had to log in again. This may be a means to protect the site, but it is definitely annoying, especially since at one point my password stopped working too.

I canít conclusively say that download managers donít work, but I couldnít use Internet Download Manager to queue scenes. It would work to download individual scenes and it would speed the process up. Download speeds were a bit less than average but still pretty good at 5MB/s on most files.

The site is part of a small network (Hardcore Doorway) which certainly improves the overall value of the site, though any prospective members should be aware that the abuse theme runs through most of the network too. Also adding to the value is the $20 monthly fee for TBP /PU members.

So would I recommend this site? Probably, but only to people who join with their eyes wide open and knowing that the site does at least as much wrong as it does right. This is a rare niche (thankfully!) and if it is something youíre interested in then it is probably worth a look. Otherwise, Iíd steer clear.

Pros: - Some amazing, innovative porn
- Top models
- Many different fetishes and niches
- Access to a lot of the Evil Angel catalogue
- Many options for downloads
- HD available
- Streaming available
Cons: - Short link time-outs make download managers almost useless
- Isnít really a true network
- No main page for the Ďnetworkí
Bottom Line: My latest membership here has caused me to rethink some of my earlier enthusiasm for the site. (But just slightlyÖ)

First off, while this site is one of 20 in a network I think it is misleading to call this site a true network since the DVDs and scenes are all drawn from the same source and simply distributed in a logical way among the 20 sites. (The 20 sites are listed here: http://www.thebestporn.com/review_included.html?id=milkenema) This isnít a negative since the material is excellent porn (among the best available, in my opinion), and I admit that in most cases the material is arranged in logical ways: having all the Mike Adriano DVDs on one Ďsiteí for example.

Speaking of the porn on offer here, while what is offered here isnít for everyone, if anal-themed porn with a harder edge is your thing, then this Ďnetworkí is among the best sites on the Ďnet. The scenes have a good mix of fetishes and use top models from the U.S., Europe and Russia but they all share high production values. I look for three factors to be in place for a site to be excellent. The first is that the porn has to be excellent quality and in this case the Ďnetworkí gets top marks.

Where this group of sites come up short is in my second and third criteria, namely site organization and ease of access. They donít fail here, but they could do so much better.

Regarding the site organization, I think the fact that theyíve decided to offer this as a collection of Ďsitesí is their waekness. There really is no reason to have organized the site this way. Since the sites all have material from the Evil Angel catalogue I donít see why the site owners saw the need to parcel it out in the way they have. Unlike a true network, this collection of sites has no main page where a member can quickly see updates. To get access to updates you need to go to each of the 20 sites to see whatís new. But by doing so youíll also see that several of the sites no longer add material. In those cases I suspect that the Ďsiteí has run out of that specific theme in the Evil Angel catalogue. Thereís no shame in that, and it certainly wouldnít be as noticeable if this were just lumped together as one site. (Speaking of updates, there are daily updates spread among the sites.)

To make matters worse, there is some overlap between the Ďsites.í You may find a scene or two from a specific DVD on one site and the remaining ones on another. On DVD sites I prefer to arrange the scenes in folders named for the DVD where they come from, and in some cases that is made more difficult here because while a majority of scenes are listed as being part of a DVD some arenít. I really canít even speculate as to why the site owners made this choice.

That isnít to say that the Ďsitesí are terribly organized, because they arenít. You can easily sort by DVD title or by scene (with the caveat being that the Ďorphaní scenes noted above wonít show up in any DVD search.)

As for ease of access, this is my biggest issue with the site: while they allow download managers, the time-outs on the links are so short that using a manager wonít work. My guess is that the links time out at about 5 minutes Ė so if youíre downloading an HD file at 2GB it makes no sense to queue up another because by the time your first scene is downloaded the second link is dead.

Iím not sure how the site is owned, but even though it shows as having separate ownership from the Evil Angel site they are both part of Fame Dollars. Whatever the link, to get the most from the Evil Angel catalogue youíll need to join both sites. That isnít too bad considering that both offer a TBP discount (though I was sad to read that the full trial is now gone.)

Perhaps the biggest change for me since I last joined is that I now download mp4s rather than WMVs. This is a huge change since the Ďnetworkí has better choices for mp4s, including 720p and 1080p. The 720 come in at 720x480 at 2400kb/s and the 1080 are 1080x720 at 5000kb/s. Both play at 30fps. Subjectively these are as crisp as the best elsewhere. They really do look great. WMVs continue to be offered but not in HD. Streaming is also offered but I donít use that so I canít comment on it.

While most of what Iíve written leans to the siteís shortcomings please donít consider just these negative comments. Consider it this way: think of your favourite model. Do you like her less when you learn that when she eats broccoli her farts stink? Likely not (assuming that this isnít a fetish of yours, of courseÖ). Same here. This collection of Ďsitesí offers up some of the most interesting, most innovative, best produced porn with some of the hottest models ever to grace the industry and they offer it all at a great price. I highly recommend joining, and as in the past I will rejoin again and again and again.

Now if youíll excuse me I have to get back to smelling some fartsÖ

Pros: - Good selection of Elegant Angel titles
- Good mix of older titles and new releases
- Updates regularly
- Supports download managers
- TBP / PU Discount
- 390 DVDs available
Cons: - Elegant Angel material is widely available on other sites so there can be a lot of overlap
- Some scenes missing from DVDs
- Download speeds can vary and are usually slower than similar sites
- Cryptic file names
- Elegant Angel has a huge back catalogue Ė this site should be much bigger than it is
Bottom Line: Iíve been a big fan of Elegant Angel studio for as long as I can remember. I think that the only other studios that surpass them in my view are Evil Angel and Kink.com. This is my first time joining the site though. Iíve learned my lesson not to write a review until I get a full sense of what the site offers and have actually watched a lot of what I downloaded. Had I written this review earlier I would have scored it lower and complained a lot more. As it stands now, I really like this site and Iím glad I joined.

Elegant Angel offers a wide variety of porn, ranging from rough anal and gangbangs to g/g to almost softcore. Thatís great for some, but I realize that for others that may be a drawback. I, for example, have no interest in large breasts so I left all of those alone. There are some consistencies though: EA uses A-list porn models and has some of the highest production values in the business.

Iíll get one complaint out of the way immediately: Elegant Angel DVDs are widely available on other sites (Videobox has an EA Ďchannelí for example). This can create a bit of a problem for active porn collectors since there is a lot of overlap available on the internet. The problem is that to get the widest selection of EA DVDs you need to join multiple sites. As a customer Iíd obviously prefer to be able to join one site and get everything, but I also realize that Elegant isnít the only studio that does this. Evil Angel and Jules Jordan are two other examples that require you to join more than one site to access more of their catalogues. At least in this case the TBP / PU discount helps.

The site currently has 390 DVDs available. The good news is that there is a mix of older titles and new releases. The bad news is that since EA has a huge back catalogue this site really should be much larger. The site updates regularly with a new DVD being added every six days.

The biggest improvement to the site occurred in March 2010 when they began offering 720p and 1080p files. All new uploads include these options and currently about 30% of the site was added after that date and are available in HD.

Older titles have limited download options. The site claims to offer 720x408 but Media Info says theyíre actually 640x480 at 1500kb/s and 30 fps. The format is mp4. There is a lower resolution available too. Iím not going to fault the site for these low resolutions on their older titles because Iím sure the original quality isnít that great to begin with and it is still great to have access to them.

New titles are offered with more download options. There is a mobile resolution at 320x180, an H264 at 720x408, a 720p at 1280x720 and a 1080p at 1920x1080. Those are all in mp4 format. I usually opted for the 720p as a good compromise for drive space and quality. Those come in at true 1280x720 at 3500kb/s and 30fps. Subjectively they look great. On a few choice scenes I went for the 1080. The resolution is as advertised and they play at 8100kb/s and 30fps. Visually I donít see a lot of difference between the 720 and 1080 but I wonít make a definite call on that as I havenít tried either on my 50Ē TV yet.

The site allows download managers and the links have a reasonable time-out. My guess is that your links will be live for at least a half hour.

This is really getting picky, but for some reason EA opts to not put all the scenes up in the DVDs. I donít know how often that occurs Ė maybe it is really infrequent Ė but it was definitely noticeable in the one DVD that I joined to get access to: Lexi. Thatís the recent DVD with Lexi Belleís first anal scene. The anal scene is there, but the site doesnít have the first scene in the movie with Lexi, Riley Reid and Michael Stefano. I may have wanted this title for the anal scene, but the b/g/g scene is actually my favourite and it irks me that it isnít posted. The DVD was uploaded in early October so I think itís safe to assume that they wonít be adding it now. If anyone has any thoughts as to why theyíd omit this Iíd appreciate hearing from you.

Since Iím being picky Iíll also point out that the file names donít give any clue to the star or DVD. If youíre like me and fussy about cataloguing your collection youíll need to change the names of the files as you download.

The site has flaws (it should be much bigger, some overlap with other EA material on other pay sites, non-specific file names) but those are minor when you consider the value of the site. If you like the style of porn here this is an excellent site and Iíd highly recommend it to anyone. This site is now officially on my list of sites to rejoin over and over.

Pros: - An excellent network of teen-oriented sites
- 14 sites available
- Network continues to grow (new sites added recently)
- Updates regularly
- Many incredibly beautiful young (18+) models, many early in their careers
- TBP / PU Discount
- No download limit
- Permits download managers
- Streaming available
- Photos available
- Bills through Epoch
Cons: - Download speeds are a bit less than I get at competitor sites
- The search function has less function in the memberís section than on the preview pages
- Iíd prefer more anal scenes
Bottom Line: I have to admit to being a bit surprised that this network hasnít been reviewed more often here. Iím guessing that part of this is just due to the wide variety of interests within the PU community such that a great teen-themed site goes without the attention it might get if everyone shared my (limited) interests.

The network is a collection of 14 sites and each of them is either specifically teen-oriented (18+, of course) or has a non-teen-specific theme but still uses the freshest faces available. Of all the sites, only one, Her Freshman Year, doesnít appear to be updating. This isnít a deal-breaker though since it is a relatively generic theme that is easily satisfied with several of the other sites on the network. If there is one usual theme not represented by a site it would be anal sex. The whole network only has 32 anal scenes out of the 1000+ available. If it wasnít for the exceptional teens I might just take this as a personal insult.

The network also includes a massage-themed site called Rub-a-Teen. This site has stirred up a bit of controversy around here because it is a clone of the Tricky Masseur site at Teen Mega World. The site sticks out for two reasons Ė it appears to be the only non-exclusive site on the network (I might be wrong on that though) and it is the only site that has non-U.S., non-English speaking models Ė apart from the Latina site. I donít hold it against the network that they bought a whole site, but Iíd have preferred to join this network to get it rather than Teen Mega World. And honestly, Iíll bet that if the guys behind this network made their own massage stuff it would be top quality.

When I last joined this network about 18 months ago I found it to have great porn but the technical bits were a bit dated. There were limited choices for file formats and their definition of HD was a bit loose. The good news is that this is no longer the case: in October 2011 the network rolled out mp4 as their standard format and all new scenes are available in three resolutions, including 720p and 1080p. One WMV file is still available as is a file size for mobile users. I downloaded the 720p and those come in at 1280x720 at a 2400kb/s bitrate and 30fps. They look great on a monitor and I suspect theyíll look fine on a TV when I get around to trying that.

Each of the scenes is available in a variety of ways (in segments, full scene, etc.) so most users will find what theyíre looking for. I may not understand why the network has so many options, but I appreciate that they do and I think this shows their positive attitude to members.

Photos are also available Ė as singles and zips Ė and as stand-alone and screencaps. I wouldnít call this a photo site but for those who like photos you can get a fix too.

Other positives are that the site bills through Epoch, allows download managers with no obvious timeouts, and doesnít impose any download limit.

There are some negatives, but I donít want to over-emphasize these as they really are minor in light of the overall quality of the network. The most serious of these negatives is the search function. Full disclosure here Ė I might be dead wrong on this, but I searched and tried for an hour and couldnít find a solution. Hereís the weird issue with the search function: each scene has a series of tags. The tags can be used to sort the scenes. ButÖ when youíre on the preview page the sort function works to narrow your choices, which is, I assume, what it is intended to do. You want ďblonde,Ē ďfootjobĒ and glasses? On the preview page youíll be left with the precise scenes that have those three elements. When youíre in the memberís section though, the tags just pile on each other. Select ďblondeĒ and you get any scene with that. Add ďfootjobĒ and you get all the footjob scenes on the network rather than just the footjob scenes with blondes, which means you get a lot of stuff you donít want. I looked long and hard and canít find a way to make the tag filter work when in the member section. If Iím wrong, please say so in a comment.

Other minor negatives are that the download speeds are a bit slower than Iím used to. Not enough to really complain, but noticeable mostly because the site is so well done that this minor issue sticks out.

This is neither a negative or a positive, it just is, but given the newness of some of the models theyíre only doing solo stuff at this point. This is a bit disappointing but if thatís the choice of the models then I canít criticize the network for that. Iím just stating this as a fact.

This is a great network that continues to add sites and scenes. One scene is added per day, spread over the 13 updating sites. I think this is a great network even at full price, but at the TBP discount it is a must-have for anyone who likes teen-themed, high quality porn. Not only do I recommend it, Iíll definitely be back again and again.

Pros: - Site is part of a great network
- Site is growing with at least two updates per month
- Three streaming options
- Five download options
- Bills through Epoch
- TBP / PU discount
- Allows download managers
- Provides porn in a rare niche
Cons: - Slightly slower download speeds than with similar networks
- Still small as of this writing
Bottom Line: Iíll get this out of the way: no, the site isnít named Exxxtra Small because it only has nine scenes posted so far. And no, I havenít lost my mind in taking the time to write a review for such a small site. Yes, I know that having only nine scenes makes it a small site, but it is new, it is updating, it is part of a large network and, most important, it serves a niche where good porn is rare: very petite women. I know that at any given time there are usually any number of petite young women in porn, but sites that actually showcase them are fairly rare.

This site is part of the Team Skeet network and is one of the newer (if not the newest) site on the network. It started on June 22, 2012 and has been updating regularly with two updates per month. I know that two updates per month doesnít sound like a lot, but since the site is part of a large network new scenes are being added throughout the network regularly.

Team Skeet is a great teen-themed network which is a must-visit site for anyone who likes their porn models fresh. The gang at Skeet must have a direct channel into the talent agencies to get so many of the newest faces in porn. Exxxtra Small is a great addition to the network and really fits in well with the overall teen themes they promote. The models on this site are all young (18-20) and all are exceptionally tiny.

One good thing about a niche like super-petite models is that the directors arenít locked in to just a few scene set-ups. This happens with a lot of massage sites where the massage set-up is so narrow that it can get stale pretty quickly. But the same canít be said for the extra-petite niche: take any porn set-up you can think of and add in a tiny model and it still works. Boats, pools, living rooms, naughty students, perky tempsÖ it all works. All the director needs to do is accentuate and promote the modelís tiny size.

Since this site started recently it has the same new video download options that were rolled out on the network late last year. This saw a significant improvement in video quality being offered. All the scenes here are offered in streaming in high and low resolutions and in HD. Iím not into streaming so I canít really say anything about these except to add that Team Skeet doesnít follow what is becoming a more common model to have the streaming start automatically. Since this might be an unpleasant surprise to someone who forgets to turn their speakers off, and since it unnecessarily hogs bandwidth I think that the site made the right choice here.

Downloads and streaming can be broken down into many different ways to satisfy just about anyone. You can view or download a preview, the full scene, the scene broken down into thirds or into one-minute blocks. Theyíve really thought of ways to make the customer happy. The best thing about these broad choices, in my opinion, is that it is easy to set your preferences which then impact any scene you open. I set my preference for Ďfullí and thatís the link that came up each time.

Downloads are available in two formats and multiple resolutions per format. A medium-grade WMV is available as is a file for mobile users. The big news for the network is that they now have mp4s available in three resolutions: ďhi,Ē 720p and 1080p. I opted for the 720p in most files because it offered the best compromise between file size and video quality. Those files are 1280x720 at a 2400kb/s bitrate and 30fps. These look great on a 24Ē monitor and I suspect theyíll look good on a 50Ē TV too when I get around to trying that. If you have any doubts, the 1080p is also available.

Photos and screencaps are also available (in singles or zips). The photos look great at 1053x702. The screencaps are a lower resolution and 720x405.

The other good news is that the site (and network) bills through a reputable biller, allows download managers and has no download limits. They also offer a TBP/PU discount. The (semi) bad news is that I find the download speeds to be a little slower than I normally see with other similar networks. It isnít bad Ė just a bit slower. (A subjective negative is that the entire network isnít big on anal scenes. Thatís their choice, but I wish there were more. There are no anal scenes on this site. But a guy can dreamÖ)

So am I going to say that a site with just nine scenes is a good value? No, but that doesnít factor in that this is a new and growing site on an established network. And the niche is underserved so this is a welcome site. This is great porn at a great price and perhaps the best recommendation that I can give it is to say that because of this one new site Iíll be joining this network more frequently than I used to.

Pros: - Part of a large teen-themed network
- Close to 350 videos now uploaded
- Updates regularly but not on any obvious schedule
- Site now offers HD in mp4 format
- Bills through Epoch
- Supports download managers
- Many new models just starting out in the adult business
Cons: - Slower download speeds than with similar networks
- The same male talent appears too often
- Not much anal
Bottom Line: Iím a huge fan of teen-themed sites with the young models (18-20ish) playing schoolgirls. I suspect that this is a common fetish for a lot of men. While this is a niche that is served fairly well, Iíd never say no to a well-done site, and this is a pretty decent site.

This is the second time Iíve been a member here and was enticed to join when the network (Team Skeet) offered a special discount on top of the discount they already offer us. I liked the site the first time I was a member there and theyíve made some improvements that made it worth a revisit.

As I noted last time, the theme is schoolgirls and the setting is almost always a classroom. This obviously limits the kinds of scene setups that are available which can make the scenes a bit repetitive. There are only so many scenarios that can be done within these limits and theyíve done them all frequently. The good news, however, is that even though the scene set-ups can be repetitive the modelís appearance and Ďskillsí keep the scenes interesting. The site books some of the freshest new faces in porn so it is worth a membership just to see the latest crop of models.

The site is quite large offering just shy of 350 scenes. It continues to update but the update schedule is fairly irregular. There is at least one update per month though there are many months with three or four updates. Keep in mind that this site is part of a network so the other sites are updating too.

The biggest change that happened since I was last a member here 18 months ago is a significant improvement in video quality. When I was last a member here the only file format was WMV and while they advertised the scenes as being available in HD their definition of HD was pretty loose. Starting in October 2011 the site made a big move forward by offering true HD in mp4 format. A decent resolution WMV is still available but the scenes are now also offered in mp4 SD, 720p HD and 1080p HD. In the interests of balancing video quality with hard drive space I opted for the 720p. Those come in at 1280x720 at a 2400kb/s bitrate and 30fps. Subjectively they look great and I can safely assume that the 1080p would look even better.

The negatives to this site are pretty minor, and some of them are also admittedly subjective. The one objective problem is that download speeds still tend to be lower than I expect at a quality site like this. Iím used to seeing near 7MB/s with Internet Download Manager and most of the time here I was getting no more than 4MB/s. (As an aside, TBPís review notes that there may be a download limit and that there may be issues with download managers. I had no problems. The siteís TOS does say that they Ďmayí impose a limit but I purposely went looking to see if Iíd get shut out and I called it quits at 30+GB in one day and had no limit imposed. Also, I had no issues using a download manager and the links didnít time out.)

The other negatives are, admittedly, subjective. The site uses the same male talent in a lot of their scenes and I find that makes the scenes even more repetitive. I think of the male talent in a straight porn scene as furniture, but I do wish these guys would change the furniture more frequently. The last (subjective) negative is that on a site with almost 350 scenes there are only three anal scenes. I realize that this is likely a reflection of the newness of many of the models, but guys, give the members some variety!

The last time I reviewed this site I found it to be a great value because of the combination of some great teen-themed porn and a TBP discount. With more scenes available and being added regularly this site continues to be a great value and if this is your kind of porn then Iíd highly recommend joining. (And if you act soon the extra discount may still be available.)

Pros: - Large network (nearly 3000 scenes)
- Network updates daily with one scene per day for the network
- Great teen-themed network
- Beautiful Russian and Eastern European models
- Decent proportion of anal scenes (though this is definitely NOT an anal-themed network
- Supports download managers
- No obvious time-outs for downloads
- No download limits
- Several under-served niches are here
- TBP / PU discount ($20 instead of $30)
Cons: - Non-English-speaking models can cause the heat to be turned down a bit
- Several sites not updating
- Download speeds can vary and are generally lower than average
Bottom Line: I know this network has some detractors here but Iím definitely not one of them. This network wasnít even on my list of Ďmust havesí but I joined it to get access to sites that feature under-served niches like young women (18-20) with older men, for example, and Iím glad that I joined. One advantage I have is that while many members here state that the site has lost its edge I have nothing to compare that to so the site still looks great to me. If you join now you likely wonít be disappointed.

The entire network has a theme of promoting young (18-20) Eastern European and Russian models. There are 36 listed sites (but two of them are network duplicates) that offer these models in a variety of niches. The most common niches are here, which is good, but the better news is that several under-served niches are here too. For example, there is a massage site, a nylons site, a voyeur site and an old-and-young site. The network is large, offering just shy of 3000 scenes now.

The network is still active with one new scene being added per day. Thatís one scene per day for the network, not for each site. Several of the sites havenít updated in a while so they may no be updating at all now.

Each site opens into its own page where you see 10 scenes per page. Clicking on a scene you want to see opens it in a new page where you can either stream or download the video. I donít use streaming so I canít really pronounce on it, but the streams arenít offered in different resolutions. The good news is that unlike many other sites the stream doesnít start automatically. The site layout is simple, effective and easy to use.

The downloads are a bit odd in that while there are options those options are limited. Unlike other similar networks where you can choose any number of resolutions in your preferred format this network doesnít offer that. For each scene there are usually options, but each resolution is offered in a different format. So if you want a particular resolution (and file size) you canít choose the format: youíre stuck with the encoding that the network chose.

If photos are available, theyíre well hidden because I didnít see them. I donít normally download photos either so I have to admit that I didnít look that hard.

The biggest advantage for the network is the look of the models. I donít normally take memberships to sites with Russian and Eastern European models but there is no good reason for this, especially since it seems that so many of the newest and most beautiful models are now coming out of Russia and Eastern Europe. This network is no exception: many of the models are new to me and many of them are incredibly beautiful.

This may be a pro or a con depending on your view, but while the network isnít anally-themed (though there is one anal site Ė Anal Angels) there is a decent amount of anal sex here. Iíd prefer more, so that should be an indication for non-anal-fans that the site isnít overwhelmed by anal scenes. Iíd say the proportion is about right.

Some minor positives are that the network offers a TBP/PU discount and it bills through Epoch. They also allow download managers and there are no obvious timeouts on the links. There are also no download limits.

The site does have some negatives. Objectively, the limited download options is a problem (see above). Also, the download speeds can vary quite a bit. Iím used to seeing speeds approaching 7MB/s and I admit that this occurred here, but it was more common to see speeds about half that rate. The lowest speeds I saw were down around 1MB/s but those only occurred at what I assume were peak download times in Europe.

This is a purely subjective negative, but I find that when the models donít speak English that takes some of the heat away from the scene. Iím a big fan of the scene set up and when you canít understand what the models are saying it seems to turn the heat down a bit. This reason alone isnít a deal-breaker because so many of the models are stunningly beautiful, but if you plan to join you should be aware of this.

The bottom line is that the positives far outweigh the minor negatives to make this network a good value. Yes, they could offer more download options and the download speeds could be more consistent, but the large network size, the access to under-served niches and especially the stunning models make this a worthwhile membership.

Pros: - Part of the large Teen Mega World network
- 93 scenes available
- Beautiful Russian and Eastern European models
- Allows download managers
- Bills through Epoch
- TBP / PU discount
Cons: - Updates infrequently
- Language reduces heat
- Slower than average download speeds
- Limited options for video download
Bottom Line: Iím a big fan of the massage niche and will usually try a site at least once to get access to new material, as I did here. One advantage with this site is that is that it gives you access to the entire Teen Mega World network. The name of the network should be an indication that the network and the sites within it arenít for everyone: the site owners take the teen theme seriously so the only models here are beautiful young (18-20) Russian and Eastern European models. If your tastes are for older women, you probably wonít like this site or the network. (But for those of us who do prefer younger and more petite models, this site and the network are great.)

The site currently has 93 scenes available. The scenes follow the usual setup used in the massage niche: model walks in to get a massage from a male masseur, she undresses and gets on the table under a sheet or towel, the massage begins with the masseur slowly exposing more of the model as he massages her, eventually sheís naked and the fun begins. While this can be repetitive it can also increase the heat of the scene if it is done right. The right chemistry between the models and the right amount of tease can make for a great scene.

ButÖ hereís where TM has a bit of a problem. I realize that this is very subjective and is beyond the control of the site so I wonít say this is a negative and I didnít consider it when assessing a score. The problem is that in most massage scenes a lot of the heat is built by the interaction between the male and female models. But since this site uses Russian and Eastern European models they donít speak English so the viewer loses a key element of that interaction. The site does use subtitles which certainly helps, but it doesnít generate the tease and heat of a site that uses English-speaking models. The language issue is partly offset by the female models though, as most of them are incredibly beautiful.

The site layout is simple and easy to use. Each page has ten scenes listed with basic information about that scene. Clicking on a scene opens a new page where you can stream or download the scene. I didnít try the streaming so I canít comment on that. The scenes are available as one complete file or in parts. I only downloaded the complete scene so I canít comment on the scene in parts either.

When it comes to downloading the scenes the site has made a choice that seems a bit odd. I donít know enough technical stuff to understand why theyíd do it this way, but Iím assuming that there is a reason. On most sites there are multiple file formats and sizes available. So, for example, you might prefer WMV files and those are available in two or three resolutions. If you prefer mp4 files, those are available too and in multiple resolutions. Here the choices are a bit different: there are multiple file sizes available but each one uses a different format: the high resolution is a WMV, there is a medium resolution in either MKV or FLV format and a resolution for mobile devices that comes as an mp4. So if you prefer WMV format but donít want a 1GB file youíre out of luck.

Iím fine with WMV so I downloaded the highest resolution available which is in that format. Even the oldest scenes on the site (which arenít that old Ė the first scene was uploaded on November 28, 2010) come in at 1280x720 at 4800+kb/s and 25fps. They use WMV Codec 9. Subjectively they look great. I canít speak for the lower resolution files as I didnít download them.

The site permits download managers (I use IDM) and I had no issue with links timing out. One issue that I did experience is that the download speeds could fluctuate. With IDM Iím used to seeing downloads near 7MB/s on most sites. With this site there were times when I could see those speeds but those times werenít frequent or sustained. I could regularly see speeds well below 2MB/s. On average, Iíd say that I got 4 to 4.5MB/s. Still not bad, but less than I normally get. The slower speeds also seemed to correspond with peak download times in Eastern Europe so I could often improve my downloads by waiting until those members were less likely to be downloading porn.

The site appears to be still active though updates are now infrequent. There was an update on November 24, 2012 but the next most recent was in April. As recently as March 2012 they were adding four or five scenes per month.

One factor that some potential members may be interested to know (and it could be a pro or a con depending on your preferences) is that while there are a good proportion of anal scenes on the other sites in the network, Tricky Masseur has no anal scenes.

The bottom line is that this is a pretty good massage site. The models are incredibly beautiful, young and petite and make for some great porn. If you like massage porn Iíd recommend giving the site a try and as an added bonus you get access to a huge network and you get a TBP / PU discount too.

Pros: - There is a cross-sell on the sign up page but it isnít pre-checked
- Bills through CCBill
- Great chance to see some new models
- Many familiar porn models appear
- Many download options for newer videos
- Supports download managers
Cons: - No zips on pics
- Pics relatively low resolution
- No search function
- No specific tags
Bottom Line: I have to confess that I never expected to be writing a review of a site featuring models with tattoos and piercings, Goth models, punk models and others along that theme. Iím as anti-tattoo as the next guy, except that it turns out Iím not. Iím still anti-tattoo and piercing unless the model goes all the way.

The biggest surprise for me was how conventional the porn here actually is. I donít know what I was expecting, but whatever it was I was wrong. This is a typical porn network that just happens to showcase models with a look that is slightly out of mainstream.

The main page is laid out as youíd expect with any network: there are tabs for going to pictures, videos, the individual sites, or sorting by model. One choice conspicuous by its absence is a search function. If it exists on the network I havenít found it yet. (This lack of search is further worsened by the lack of scene tags. Tags exist, but are too broad to be of a lot of use in specific searches.)

The network is made up of eight individual sites. (Cum on My Tattoo, Fuck me in the Bathroom, Heavy Metal Pussy Party, Joanna Angel, POV Punx, Punk Porn, Punk Schoolgirls and Big Boobs are Cool Ė Iíll post some stats as a comment on each siteís PU page.) While several of the sites have a reason for being stand-alone, several others could just as easily be grouped together. This is neither positive or negative, itís just a fact.

Each site is laid out in the same way: the site opens into a page where there are thumbnails for 20 scenes per page. Under each thumbnail is some basic information about the scene, including a scene name, the genre (girl/boy, solo, etc.), the running length, user ratings and the female star.

When you select a scene you get a larger thumbnail and four small thumbnails to give you some idea of whatís in store. Each scene has multiple options for downloads. You can download a trailer, the full scene or the full scene broken down into parts. I have to question the value of offering the scene in parts in 2012, but maybe there are still people with slow internet connections. For each of those options there are usually some choices for file type and resolution. MPEGs are offered (in resolutions up to 1400x800 Ė 5000kb/s and 24fps Ė depending on the upload date, of course), as are WMVs in high and low resolutions and a mobile version. These options decrease as you get into older files. Prior to 2010 MPEGs werenít offered but Quicktime files were. The oldest scenes on the network, which date back to 2007, are often only available in one resolution and only in WMV. The resolution on the oldest scenes is low at 480x360, 1800kb/s and 30fps.

This is being a bit picky, but the way the download options are laid out with the trailer as the first option made it too easy to select that instead of the full scene. It didnít happen to me, but it required that I pay more attention than Iíd normally do when just downloading porn. Even having a trailer as a download option seems odd to me, but at least they could put it lower in the option list.

The site supports download managers and I had no problem with the links timing out.

The network bills through CCBill so you have confidence in that. There is a cross-sell, but it isnít pre-checked.

If the site has a major flaw it is how they provide pictures. I donít normally download photos but in this case I was looking forward to doing so. I had flagged several models that I really liked that are rare on more mainstream sites and wanted photos too. I was disappointed to see that zips arenít available and that even if they were, the resolution isnít great. The newest photos are 1080x720. I know that isnít bad, but they could be better. Older photos are obviously a lower resolution. I gave up on getting photos since having to save each one individually seems like too much work for porn. The lack of zips really needs to be addressed.

I know this is highly subjective, but I found most of the models on the site to be very attractive. I do question why some models appear on the site though. Katie St. Ives has a few scenes here and Iíd not normally think of her when I think tattoos, piercings, Goth or punk. Donít get me wrong, Iíll take any of Katieís scenes when I can get them, but it just doesnít seem to be a good fit.

Dracken posted a comment back in í09 that the network appeared to be a Ďcommunityí site for people who like the Goth / Punk / etc. look and lifestyle. That is true. There are blogs and forums for the look, the music and the life. Iím only interested in the naked chicks so I really canít comment on the non-porn parts of the network.

The bottom line is that this is an excellent network. It is well laid out, easy to use and offers some great porn. If youíre like me and want to push your porn boundaries a bit then Iíd highly recommend starting with Burning Angel. The models are beautiful and the scenes are hot.

Pros: - All scenes available in HD
- All anal (which might be a negative for some)
- Top porn models
- Bills through Epoch
- Supports download managers
Cons: - Small site (72 scenes and 17 BTS scenes)
- Only updates twice a month with one scene being added
- Really shouldnít be a stand-alone site
- Expensive for what is offered
Bottom Line: Iíll cut right to the chase on this: this site shouldnít exist and likely only does because of greed. The reason I say that is because The Ass Factory (AF) has Jules Jordan scenes only and since Jules Jordan doesnít have that many titles what he does have is split between AF and his main site, Jules Jordan. I donít think there is any real justification for having two sites since neither of them is very big, and to make matters worse, these are even the same DVDs on the two sites with three or four scenes from a DVD on Jules Jordan and one or two on AF. So if youíre looking for all the scenes on a specific DVD you may be out of luck because you may discover that one scene you really want is on the other site. And since each membership is $30 this is a little expensive.

The site has only 72 scenes available now and that wonít be growing by leaps and bounds any time soon since the regular update schedule seems to be that a scene (yes, a scene, NOT a DVDÖ) is added every two weeks. Thatís just two scenes added per month. I will admit that the most recent update was added just one week after the previous one so maybe theyíre stepping it up a bit.

AF suffers from the same problem that baffled me about Jules Jordan: Jordanís material is all from DVDs and yet the scenes arenít organized or named by DVD. You can determine what DVD each scene is from by clicking on the scene where youíll find that information, but it seems odd to me that the site wouldnít be organized by DVD title. Maybe the reason for this is because organizing it by scene makes the site seem larger than it really is.

Once you get past the fact that the site isnít a very good value you do realize that you have access to some great porn. Jules Jordan is consistent (though his older stuff is definitely better) and makes great porn. Jordanís work definitely isnít couples oriented with his scenes having a fairly hard edge. Much of Jordanís work also features anal sex, which I know isnít a good thing for some people. If you donít like anal sex scenes, this isnít the site for you since every scene posted here features anal sex.

With Jordan being one of the better known porn producers / directors in the business heís able to get the whoís-who of porn in his movies. Most, if not all, of the models he works with are A-listers.

Another positive about AF is that every scene is available in 1080p. Each scene only offers mp4s for download but there are four resolutions available for each: mobile, SD, HD 720p and 1080p. I went with the 720p on most because file sizes on the 1080p were quite large and the video quality is excellent so I can imagine that theyíd look that much better in 1080p.

The site also offers streaming in mobile, SD and HD resolutions. Thankfully the scenes donít start buffering and playing until you actually select that option.

A quirk with the site is that there are 17 behind-the-scenes scenes. I say this is a quirk because there are none posted at the main Jules Jordan site. Iím a fan of BTS material so I appreciated having access to them but I realize that not everyone likes BTS stuff.

The site supports download managers and I had no problems using Internet Download Manager. I didnít have any problem with links timing out.

The bottom line is that I canít recommend this site unless it really has something that you absolutely must have. I know the porn business can be accused of being a little unethical sometimes and I think that splitting a fairly small DVD catalogue between two separate sites and charging $30 for each site might cross the line into being unethical. There is no reason to have done this: it isnít like AF offers any specific niche that isnít also on the main JJ site. Yes, this site promises all anal, but there is still plenty of anal on the main site and the scenes at AF are from DVD titles that that are also on the main site. At $30 for access to just 72 scenes and 17 BTS scenes The Ass Factory just isnít good value.

(As an aside, you know how some high-end European car manufacturers and even the Corvette allow buyers to take delivery at the factory? Well it occurs to me that the way to improve the value of this site is if Mr. Jordan were to offer a factory tour here. Being such an ass aficionado I KNOW Iíd like that. Iíve always wanted to see where they make these thingsÖ)

Pros: - HD available in new titles
- SD looks good
- Access to a lot of older titles
- Supports download managers
- Access to a good mix of older and newer JJ stuff
- Newer DVDs appear to be uploaded shortly after release
- Bills through Epoch
- Updates regularly
Cons: - Site not organized by DVD title
- Small site
- Download speeds can vary
- Need a membership to a second Jules Jordan site to get all the scenes from some DVDs
- Search function could use some improvement
- Updates by adding only one scene at a time
Bottom Line: After two memberships to sites that Iíd not normally have joined due to their focus on older (25+) and busty women, I figured Iíd better join a site that I knew Iíd like: a DVD-based, raw hardcore site with a healthy dose of anal scenes.

Jules Jordan is probably one of those producers whoís work you either like or donít. He started with Evil Angel many years ago and has continued to produce some excellent porn if you like your porn with a rougher edge and heavy dose of anal sex. Heís no Max Hardcore though, and his work was certainly a good fit for Evil Angel. If you like EA stuff youíre apt to like JJ stuff.

The site is organized in a straightforward way in that you can sort by all scenes, older scenes, HD scenes and by models. Clicking on either of those will bring up a list with large thumbnails that you can further open to get what youíre looking for.

The individual scenes open to a new page with a large window for streaming (which, thankfully, doesnít start automatically). There are links for streaming choices and for download choices. In the newer scenes streaming is available in HD, SD and mobile, and the same is usually available in HD (1080p and 720p), SD and mobile for downloads. The only file type is mp4. The videos looked good (I downloaded 720p when it was available). Obviously older files shot in SD donít look as good but theyíre still watchable.

The site supports download managers and links donít time out quickly. Download speeds were usually good at 6+MB/s using IDM though there were times (infrequently) when it could be half that.

The good news is that you have access to 124 DVDs. Iím not sure how many DVDs Jordan has produced but IAFD doesnít seem to list too many more than that. This means that you have access to a lot of his older titles and still have access to new releases. The newer releases seem to get uploaded shortly after they hit the DVD market. The bad news here is that with only 124 DVD titles this is still a pretty small site. And itís destined to stay that way for a while since the site only updates with one scene being added every two days. On some days two scenes get added, but that isnít frequent. The other downside to this is that if youíre looking for a specific scene in a movie you might have to wait a while to get it.

Iíll admit this may be subjective, but on a DVD-based studio site it seems logical to me that the scenes be arranged by the DVD they appeared on. For example, if you want to check out Ass Worship 3 you should be able to sort by DVD title, select that title and see the scenes in that movie. But for some reason the site isnít set up this way, even though the DVD title will appear as a tag in a scene. Not to get too confusing here, but letís say you open a scene with a star you like. The thumbnail and link will give no indication of which DVD the scene is from, but when you open the link there will be a tag with the DVD title that you can then click on to see all the available scenes from that title.

An obvious work-around would be to just enter the DVD into the search function, right? Sort of, but if you search ďAss Worship 3Ē be prepared to scroll down past the first four or five links because those first links wonít be scenes from the DVD youíre looking for. Aim for the fifth or sixth scene and open it and you might just have a scene from Ass Worship 3 with a link to the DVD that you can then follow through to see the other scenes from that title. My description is confusing partly because the process is confusing.

To make this even worse, the tour pages have a ďMoviesĒ link which will take you to a page with thumbnail covers of all the DVDs on the site. When you enter the memberís page though, that link is gone.

What really hurts the value of a membership is the way that the studio has decided to release the videos. Besides this site the studio also has The Ass Factory. We can debate whether a single studio the size of JJ really needs two sites (Iíd debate that they donít) but the problem is that for most JJ titles you might get three scenes here and two at The Ass Factory, which means that to get more complete access to the JJ library you need to buy two $30 memberships. But I suppose if there are enough people like me who will pay for both there is no incentive to merge the two sites into one.

So is the site worth a membership? It depends on who you are. If you really like Jordanís stuff it probably is. If itís merely a passing interest for you there are probably better places to put your porn dollars. The porn is excellent, but the site needs a rethink on a couple of key problems and the fact that the site is small and the DVDs are spread over two sites makes the value lower than it should be.

(As an aside, if you want a membership to only one JJ site Iíd recommend this one over The Ass Factory. AF is a much smaller site for the same fee. Iíll try to get a review to that up soon.)

Pros: - 30 sites on the network
- TBP / PU discount
- Supports download managers
- Bills through Epoch
- Many options for downloads
Cons: - No usable search function
- Not a huge amount for people who donít like big breasts and MILFs
- Many of the big breasts are Ďenhancedí and not natural
Bottom Line: I doubt that Iím offending anyone by saying that Brazzers is a network that caters mostly to MILF and large-breast aficionados (and most of those big breasts are enhanced, not natural). So why would a guy who prefers younger and more petite models take a membership here? The answer is simple Ė Jenni Leeís first anal scene. Yes, I have to confess that I took a membership just to access one scene.

As with my review of Naughty America I realize that there are a lot of reviews already so Iíll review the network from the perspective of someone who prefers younger and more petite models. Is it worth a membership for those of us with those preferences?

The network is made up of 30 individual sites each based around a theme. All of the most popular porn themes are represented. Unlike Naughty America, Brazzers doesnít really have any sites that would specifically appeal to those of us who like younger and smaller models. In contrast, many of the sites are specifically aimed at members who like big breasts, with names like Big Tits in Uniform, Big Tits in Sports, Big Tits at School and Big Tits at Work. So if you like big breasts youíll know there are lots of scenes for you here.

There are currently over 4600 scenes on the network and three more are added daily. The bad news is that many of the sites are currently not updating, though I donít consider that a negative as the scenes are still available.

Each site opens into a separate page where the scenes are listed with a large thumbnail. Each thumbnail has a scene name and lists the female star or stars. Clicking on a scene you want brings up a new page where you can stream or download the scene. Newer scenes have more options available for download, which makes sense, with many offering as high as 1080p. Mp4s are the most common offering with newer scenes being available in SD and 720p and 1080p. One (or sometimes two) WMV resolution is also usually available as is a MPEG version. Many also offer a size for mobile devices too. The size of the file is listed right beside all the choices which is helpful in deciding which resolution you want. This is useful since the 1080p files can top out at more than 2GB. I downloaded the 720p when it was available and it actually comes in at 854x480 and plays at 2000+kb/s and 30fps. Subjectively they look great. Older scenes obviously donít have HD available or the same range of choices which can be a bit frustrating but even the older scenes look pretty good.

I had no problem using a download manager (IDM) and found that the links didnít time out unreasonably quickly.

If this site has a serious flaw itís the lack of a useful search function. I know other reviewers have commented that the search function isnít very good, but Iíd go further and say it is really non-existent. This is a flaw because the site is huge and covers many themes so relying solely on tags to find material can be problematic. The site does have a series of filters but I didnít find them to be terribly helpful. And to make matters worse Iíd often forget to clear the filters when starting a new search and that would further limit what I found until I realized my mistake.

There is also no way to search for individual stars by just typing their name in. You can select the Ďpornstarí tab which you can then sort by letter. You can further sort that in any of several ways (popularity, number of scenes, etc) with one of the sorts being by name. The problem with this is that the alphabet that Brazzers uses appears to have no connection to the modern alphabet that most English countries use. If youíre looking for a specific star be prepared to manually search through several pages to find her.

So does Brazzers offer any value to a potential member who prefers younger and more petite models? UmmmÖ yeah. Probably. I think what likely tilts the balance towards recommending this network is that there are scenes for guys like us and the discounted TBP / PU price makes it an okay value for people who arenít into big breasts and MILFs. And they use a reputable biller. (If youíre a fan of large breasts and MILFs then there is excellent value here and Iíd highly recommend a membership.) There are scenes for guys like me, though there arenít as many as Iíd hoped, and finding them isnít made any easier by the flawed search function. But Iíd still recommend it. But Iíll likely only be back if they happen to have the worldís first Lexi Diamond anal scene.

(This is a bit off topic, but the network produces a couple of high-end porn series. Think of it as if HBO did hardcore. These are interesting and the production values are high Ė better than most in the industry. In one of the series a young woman is murdered, wrapped in plastic and dumped by a stream. For some reason, Brazzers often uses this shot as their siteís wallpaper. I have a lot of fetishes, but Ďmurder porní ainít one Ďem.)

Pros: - Even though the network promotes itself as featuring more mature and more buxom models, there is still a lot here for those of us who like younger and more petite models
- Huge network of 27 sites
- Over 5000 scenes
- Exclusive (appears to be)
- Newer uploads (2009 onward) offer a wide range of file types and resolutions
- HD available
- Many sites updating regularly
- Bills through Epoch
- Allows download managers
Cons: - Site has a lot of ads that can slow things down
- Have to enter your username and password each time
- More dead links than Iíd expect on a network like this
- Older scenes are low resolution
- Some sites no longer updating
- Proportionally fewer anal scenes than similar networks (thatís obviously very subjective and isnít factored into the score)
Bottom Line: Like a lot of PU members probably did too, I joined this network to take advantage of the great price they were offering to commemorate uploading their 5000th scene. I had never considered joining before because much of the preview material made it clear that the site was more about buxom MILFs than the 18-22 petite stars I prefer. But with a $5 fee it was worth the risk. I know that this will be the 50th review posted here so to make this of some use to PU members who share my tastes Iíll review it from the perspective of someone preferring younger and more petite models.

The network has 27 sites up and while I realize that some readers may dispute my classification of sites, the majority of sites cater to members looking for older and more buxom models. I knew that going in and Iím not critical of that. I also wonít let that impact this review or the score.

There are some sites that focus on the young and petite. These are:

ē Fast Times Ė 148 scenes, updating with two scenes added per month
ē My Sisterís Hot Friend Ė 481 scenes, updating with up to eight scenes added per month
ē Naughty Bookworms Ė 430 scenes, updating with up to eight scenes added per month
ē Naughty Athletics Ė 137 scenes, hasnít updated since August 2012
ē I Have a Wife Ė 246 scenes, updating with up to four scenes added per month
ē SoCal Coeds Ė 40 scenes, hasnít updated since 2007
ē My Dadís Hot Girlfriend Ė 162 scenes, updating with up to four scenes added per month
ē My Friendís Hot Girl Ė 41 scenes, updating with up to three scenes added per month
ē Naughty Country Girls Ė 22 scenes, hasnít updated since 2009
ē Naughty Rich Girls Ė 39 scenes, last update was January 2012

The network offers a wide variety of file types and resolutions on their newer scenes. There is really something for everyone. Mp4s are available in 1080p, 720p and 480p, WMVs are available in ĎDVDí and ĎNormalí and there is a Quicktime version and one for mobile devices. On all but the HD files they are also available in parts. I didnít download all the various versions to test them, but what I did download is what it is advertised to be. The one problem with resolutions is that while they certainly offer state-of-the-art downloads now they didnít always do that. On many older scenes the best offered is 512k which looks pretty bad. When these were being offered Iím fairly sure that they were not up to par with the best in the industry.

Streaming and photos are also available but I sampled neither so I canít comment on those.

With the exception noted below, the network supports download managers and the links donít appear to time-out quickly.

The site definitely has some flaws, and I realize that some of these may seem trivial but they add up to reduce the usefulness of the network. Not in any order, the flaws I found are:
ē The network has no option to remember your username and password.
ē If youíre on an individual site and click to open a scene, hitting your browserís back button will kick you all the way back to page one, even if you were on page 30. Either remember where you were or use tabs. (This may not be a problem for people who donít use IE.)
ē Earlier in my membership I couldnít use Internet Download Manager to download either of the two highest resolution files. That may be fixed now but I donít know if it is.
ē There are a lot more dead links on this network then Iíve seen with competitors.

One major flaw on the network is that it is extremely Ďbusyí with ads and feeds. Ordinarily I can overlook ads (they do work on me sometimes) because I realize it can be a decent revenue stream for exclusive networks like this but in this case they cross the line to be obtrusive. To even get into the network you have to click through two ads. Once in, the pages have a lot of ads. Theyíre obtrusive because they require a lot of time to download. I have a fiber op connection and on many occasions I had to wait for what seemed like a minute for the ads to load before I could navigate on the page.

I realize that this is purely subjective and many readers may not care or may see this as a plus, but for a network of this size they donít have a lot of anal sex scenes. There were many models who are known for their anal performances who donít do anal here. This is a subjective con, but for others it may be a plus. Iím just making the statement so that readers will know this.

So was this membership worth the heavily discounted price? Absolutely. Is it worth the usually-discounted price offered through TBP/PU? Definitely yes. Even for a guy who isnít among the target customer group there was plenty of great porn with young and petite models to make this a worthwhile investment. Iíd recommend that anyone who shares my interest in a particular type of model take the plunge regardless of the fact that the stuff we like is in the minority. There is still a lot of great stuff for us too.

Pros: - 175 studios (some major, some niche)
- 9000+ DVDs
- Many individual scenes independent of DVDs
- Some exclusive sites
- Updates daily
- Adds new studios
- Supports download managers (IDM for me)
- No obvious time-outs for files
- TBP / PU special membership makes it really worthwhile
Cons: - Not all sites update
- Like other DVD mega-sites, there is a lot of crap to sort through while looking for the gems
Bottom Line: I wrote a review of this site about a year ago after my first membership here and after re-reading that I can say that it all still applies. I know that Iím not the only PU member who regularly visits the same sites so my perspective in this second review is to give some thoughts about whether it is worth joining a second or later time. Iíll cut to the chase, the answer to that is certainly yes, but it isnít as easy a decision to make as with some other sites.

PSN suffers from a similar problem to other DVD sites, namely the availability of new material to keep updating the site. Like Videobox, PSN uploads five DVD titles per day. Unlike VB though, PSN doesnít put the complete title up at once. You may see a DVD that you really want only to find that the scene you really want is due to be posted later. The good news is that you usually wonít have to wait more than a few days to get all the scenes in that DVD. The problem with that uploading schedule for both PSN and VB is that they have to upload a lot of crap to keep to it. The good news is that, in my opinion, PSN uploads less crap than VB.

The site is large, with over 9000 DVDs already posted from 175 studios. The studios range from the biggest of the big names like Elegant Angel and Private to more niche oriented studios. In short, there is likely something here for everyone. It appears that PSN continues to add studios because, as I noted in a comment a few weeks ago, they are now the only site Iím aware of that has Max Hardcore DVDs available for download. Yes, Max is polarizing, but I still think it reflects well on PSN to licence and make available these titles, even if they are the edited American versions.

The site continues to offer downloads in multiple formats, with AVI, H.264 and MPEG being the most common. The H.264 files come in at 720x540 and look decent so only true Ďsize queensí will miss higher definition scenes.

I use Internet Download Manager and had no problems. The links didnít time out in the time it took to download them and download speeds were as fast as I see with most porn sites.

One problem that I perceived (and am open to being corrected on if Iím wrong) is that there is some overlap within the sites themselves. Take the site Sperm Cocktail which offers a lot of Brandon Ironís material including his series ďA Good Source of Iron.Ē Sorting the site by DVDs gives you all the DVDs obviously, which you can then click on and download the individual scenes from each. You can also sort by scene which appears to includes a lot that isnít on the DVDs but that is mixed in with the same scenes that are on the DVDs which means that you will likely end up downloading some stuff twice. This is no big deal if you donít care to associate a scene with the DVD it is from, but for those of us who like to organize by DVD it can be an issue.

While this likely wonít happen if you join, I will point out that both times I did I had initial problems and Iíve read of others having similar problems. The first time I joined they had just started offering the full access to TBP/PU members and I got missed. This time after paying my fee I was given limited trial access. The good news is that on both occasions customer service was helpful and resolved the problems quickly.

One advantage to a rejoin is that during your first time through youíve likely downloaded all the material you wanted from the several sites that no longer update. Most of these are solo model sites where the model has left the business. This is an advantage on a rejoin because PSN still has a download limit of 100 files per 24 hour period and many of the files on the older sites are small so you can hit the limit. Iím no fan of limits but I have to admit that the one here is pretty reasonable. It would have to be a rainy, hung-over Sunday to hit the limit.

One point that bears mentioning even though it is a repeat of what I said in my original review is that if you want to join this site it is very important to join through TBP / PU. Joining through TBP / PU makes what might be a decent membership and makes it a great one. The difference is that joining through here gets you access to the otherwise-optional Moviez material which is really the bulk of the good material on the site.

In my opinion, PSN is definitely worth a re-join. They continue to expand and even add new studios. They offer a great collection of mainstream American porn along with a good mix of lesser known European material and even some niche stuff. Iíll definitely be back again too.

- Files only available in one format and size
- Scenes stream and play automatically
- Photos vary widely in quality
- No zips for photos
Bottom Line: There are certain porn niches that I really like; two of those are public nudity and group sex parties. This network has several sites that offer material in those niches and since those sites that have this material are relatively rare I often take a chance when I find one. But given the reviews posted here and the information at TBP I should have avoided this site. Iíll skip right to the bottom line now: with a narrow exception, do not join this site!

Iíve said many times that I think for a porn site to be great it has to have good porn, the site needs to be well laid out and finally it has to be easily accessed or downloaded by the user. A lot of sites hit two of those targets but fail on a third and donít become great sites. Theyíre stuck at merely good. It is arguable that this network offers good porn. I think they do: some of the material available is interesting and looks pretty good. But on the overall layout of the site and the ease of access by members this site falls flat.

The network is made up of 44 sites. Unlike a lot of other networks that follow a formula, this one has unique concepts for many of the sites. Most of the standard porn niches are covered, like teens , MILFs and cumshots, but rarer niches are also covered here, like feet, pubic hair, drunk girls, BBWs and femdom. What drew me in were several sites that feature a strip club motif and sites with public nudity and group sex parties.

While I like many of the unique niches available here the scenes themselves are just mediocre. In most cases the scenes are quite short. Many of the niche sites have scenes that average less than five minutes. The layout of each site is the same: there are 16 medium-sized thumbnails per page with a short, mostly useless description. Clicking on a thumbnail open that page where the scene starts streaming and playing automatically. This is a pet peeve of mine: I donít like that it hogs bandwidth and I donít like the audio surprises that come with sites like this. There is an option to download the scene too. The downloads are only available as mp4s and only in one resolution. That resolution varies from fairly low (720x480 at 1500kb/s) to fairly decent (1280x720 at 3500kb/s). I didnít download a lot of material so I canít really say how much is at the higher resolution.

I have a number of complaints about how the downloads are accessed. First, the file names are meaningless, consisting of just a number. I can live with that, but many of them include ďpart 1Ē as part of the title, obviously implying that there are other parts. I really donít like scenes broken into parts in 2012 because for the vast majority of user it simply isnít necessary, but to make matters worse, if the scenes actually are in clips the other clips in the scene arenít identified. How do I find them? The name gives no clue and there isnít even a usably search function if the names had any meaning.

The biggest flaw in downloading is something Iíve never seen before on a website. The site doesnít allow download managers (which isnít unique but still a very annoying) but the strange thing is a restriction that you have to wait one minute between downloads. This might not be such a big deal if the scenes were all 1GB files, but since many of the files are only 10MB or less that download in a few seconds, it is annoying to have to wait a full minute to download another. If you arenít willing to provide reasonable access to your members then I think you really need to rethink your business model.

One bit of good news is that the network does update regularly with at least a dozen clips being added each day.

I canít tell if the scenes are exclusive or not. Iíve not seen them anywhere else but given the wide variation in quality and the fact that they look like the same kind of clips that are available elsewhere Iím inclined to think that they arenít exclusive. But Iím certainly open to correction on this point.

The site also offers photos. I didnít spend a lot of time looking at them but I can report that the quality varies quite a bit and the site commits the serious sin of not allowing zipped downloads.

As for a recommendation, Iíd only recommend a membership to a narrow group: you like the niches they offer, and you only like streaming video. If youíre a photo guy or you prefer to download videos, my recommendation is to avoid the site. It is disappointing to see some unique porn but to have access limited to it by some bad decisions. I definitely wonít be back.

Pros: - 37 Sites
- Over 1800 scenes
- Something for most Ė broad range of usual niches
- Supports download managers
- Streaming available
- Downloads available
- Download speeds to industry norms
- Exclusive scenes with well known stars
- TBP / PU discount
Cons: - Updates are infrequent for a network of this size
- Only one file type for download Ė WMV
- Search function needs to be improved
- Scene page hogs bandwidth as it downloads to stream
- Wide range in resolutions
- Some scenes very low resolution
- Scenes arenít dated
- No biller
- Some scenes labeled as HD arenít
Bottom Line: Iíve got mixed feelings about this network. On one hand, its large, with over 1800 scenes spread over 37 sites covering the usual porn niches of teens, cougars, lesbians, MILFs (if those differ from cougarsÖ I donít know), big dicks and interracial. They also have some relatively rare sites with group sex in a party setting. Probably the only major site niche theyíre missing is anal, but I promise I didnít let that glaring oversight affect my score or review. Another advantage to this network is that it does offer exclusive scenes with some of the best known porn models. If youíre looking to add new scenes of your favourite starlets you should consider a membership here.

On the other hand, updates are few and far between for such a large network, and many of the sites donít update at all. Because the scenes arenít dated in any usable way I canít really provide more definitive information, but it appears that only ten sites are regularly updating, with another four that may be occasionally updating. By Ďregularly updatingí though, I donít mean that it is regular as in a set schedule. As of the date of this review the last update was nine days ago. The network updates by adding one scene to the network at a time. So if you join the network for a specific site you may find that site doesnít update or doesnít post an update for the month youíre there.

As porn, this is just standard-fare stuff. That isnít meant to be an accolade or a criticism, it is a simple fact. On most of the sites the porn looks just like the porn on other similar networks. The production values are up to normal standards. The networkís production values donít fail it, but neither do they set it apart.

The networkís main page shows you the most recent six updates. This is the only place where there is an upload date associated with a scene. From there you can go into the individual sites or search for pornstars. I didnít find the search function to be especially useful, but there is a pull-down menu of tags and that works well. Be advised that the tag menu works on individual sites too, so if you have the After Class Adventures site up and use the Ďanalí tag it will sort just that site by anal. Using the search function to do that will give all the anal scenes on the network even though youíre just on one site.

Opening a scene brings you to a separate page. My biggest complaint is that the scene starts downloading the streaming video immediately and automatically. I find this to be a big bandwidth hog that I donít want. To the networkís credit though, the scene doesnít start to play automatically. At this page you can stream or download the video. Iíve criticized sites in past reviews for only offering mp4s since I prefer WMVs, so itís only fair that I criticize this network for only offering WMVs. Customers should have a choice.

An issue with the downloaded scenes is that they are only available in one resolution. In some cases, presumably with older uploads (remember, no date info is available) the resolution is 320x240 at 906kb/s. These are almost unwatchable by 2012 standards. Newer files come in at 1280x720 at 3100kb/s. Both resolutions play at 30fps and are in WMV 9. The site really needs to remaster their older stuff and offer a lower resolution option for people who donít have the bandwidth to download a large file. Apart from the lowest resolution scenes, they look good.

In a comment from last year, insomniacxxx stated that some scenes labeled as HD arenít. This is still true, but it may be that he and I noticed this on the same scenes. I saw some 320x240 scenes that had the HD logo.

Photos are available for most scenes, as singles and zips. The resolution isnít bad, but not great, at 945x630.

The network allows download managers and I had download speeds comparable to similar sites.

The site bills internally and doesnít use a third-party biller.

So would I recommend this site? Without a doubt I definitely would, but Iíd make sure that a prospective member realized that it isnít perfect. A member gets access to a lot of good porn for an excellent price using the TBP/PU discount. I realize this isnít a glowing review, but it is a decent site that could see some improvements.

Pros: - Site updates by adding one scene every three or four days
- Offers streaming and (some) downloads
- Pictures offered
Cons: - All videos, even new ones, are broken down into clips
- Slow download speeds
- Older videos would have been low resolution even when they were filmed
- Navigation is strange
- Not all scenes can be downloaded, just streamed
- Website design is poor
- No search function
- No independent biller
Bottom Line: I realize that I can be correctly chastised by the members here for joining a site that is almost universally panned by reviewers. And the only review that graded the site fairly high was short on detail and long on subjectivity. But given that Iím on a public nudity kick lately and this network has a public nudity site I figured that it couldnít be THAT bad. This network might just be the worst Iíve ever joined.

The network is a collection of 20 unrelated sites that cover most of the usual porn niches with some emphasis on interracial scenes. Apart from the public nudity site I was also looking for access to several sites that feature Ďpartiesí like Frat House Fuck Fest and Bachelor Party Fuck Fest. The odd thing about the site is that at first glance it looks fairly well designed. It looks like many other decent networks, but when you start actually using the site you soon realize that there are serious design flaws.

Some readers may question this approach, but I will admit that Iím reviewing this site after downloading and viewing very little of whatís available. Iíd normally download and view a lot of scenes from a site before giving an opinion of it, but in this case while there are definitely scenes Iíd like to see it isnít worth the time or hard drive space to have them. All of the videos on the site are available only as clips. Even the newest videos donít offer a full video option. I can understand why this was done in 2002, but in 2012 it is a very rare person whoís internet speed dictates getting clips. To make matters worse, while the specs on the newest scenes seem reasonable, the videos actually look blocky and pixilated. Add to that that the cameraman canít hold the camera steady and that movement causes the pixilation to seem worse. The videos are difficult to watch. The newest videos come only as WMVs and are 720x480 at 1700kb/s and 30fps. I donít understand how all the tech stuff is inter-related, but subjectively these videos look terrible.

For older videos things are worse. I joined specifically to get access to Butt Naked in the Streets and was sorely disappointed in that. Itís rare to have a public nudity site featuring well-known American porn models in an American city so I had high hopes. Unfortunately the older videos come in at just 320x240 at 330kb/s and only 8fps. Iím confident in saying that when these were uploaded several years ago they werenít even close to being up to industry standards then, so in 2012 they look truly awful.

Download speeds are also well below what Iím used to with modern sites. I donít know if the older files are on a different server, but the older files I downloaded came in at speeds I havenít had to endure in years. The average speed I got was about 130kb/s. Thatís KILOBYTES! I saw speeds drift down to double digits frequently. Things were a little better with the newer files, with the average speed around 3MB/s. Thatís about half the speed Iím used to with other sites.

Iím not sure why, but many of the scenes canít be downloaded, they can only be streamed.

There doesnít appear to be any kind of search function at all. No tags either, so you just have to sort through the individual sites.

The network does update with one scene being added every three days.

The site has no independent biller. I cancelled my membership just hours after joining. Cancelling seemed easy and I got a confirmation email but Iíll be watching for additional billing in the future since one commenter had a problem.

The site navigation is strange and difficult to use. Selecting a site on the network brings up a window within your browser. Not a new window or a tab, but this Ďfloatingí thing that is superimposed over the main page. You need to scroll through it but its too easy to accidently scroll on the main page which then moves the floating widow out of your view. And too frequently I clicked my browserís Ďbackí button instead of closing the floating window, thereby kicking myself back to the login screen. This method seems to be an attempt to be innovative but it doesnít work and just seems gimmicky.

Thanks to TBP and PU I rarely get burned in a membership and had I trusted the members here more Iíd have avoided this disaster. Iíve been on a public nudity kick recently and having access to the public nudity site seemed to justify the risk but it didnít pay off. The best I can hope for now is that someone may read this and the other reviews and avoid this network. The porn here is actually pretty good, but it is so poorly shot and accessing it is so difficult that it doesnít make a membership worthwhile. I am definitely NOT recommending this network. The disappointing thing is that the themes on many of the sites are pretty good. The guys who hire the talent and think up the themes should fire the cameraman, editor and webmaster and start over.

Pros: - Large site with access to a lot of Wickedís catalogue
- Most files have at least two download options
- Later files have 720p and some even offer 1080p
- Contract girls (get access to a lot of material from the contract girls)
- Easy to download complete movies
- Supports download managers
- TBP Discount
Cons: - No tags for scenes
- Small scene thumbnails on main movie page
- Only one file format offered (mp4)
- A lot of silicone
- All condoms, all the time (neutral, reallyÖ)
Bottom Line: Wicked Pictures is a studio that Iíve liked for years but never really downloaded much of their stuff. To make matters more difficult, there are two sites that are either operated by or affiliated with Wicked. Obviously the technical information in this review only applies to this site.

I started watching porn in the mid-1980s when Gonzo had yet to be invented. Most porn that could be rented in those days followed a fairly standard pattern: studios had a few contract models, the movies involved acting and had a plot. And there seemed to be a rule that every movie needed a lesbian scene. Wicked still subscribes to this formula for many of their movies, even the newer ones. This is neither good nor bad, but only to give you a sense of what youíll have access to.

At any given time Wicked has several models working on contract. There are pros and cons to this since if you like a model but donít like Wickedís style then youíre out of luck. If you donít like a particular model youíll end up seeing a lot more of her than youíd prefer, but on the other hand if you do like a specific model youíll have access to a lot of her work. I found several models that I really like had been Wicked contract girls so this site gave me a great opportunity to get some scenes I didnít have.

If there could be a ďWicked GirlĒ look, that look tends to be to the bigger-breasted women, many of whom are artificially enhanced. But as a fan of small breasts on petite women there was plenty to keep me happy too.

On another neutral note (for me, though it could be a pro or con for others) Wickedís policy is for condoms in all scenes except for oral. The guys still pull them off for the money shot though.

The site is fairly large, offering 577 DVDs. These range from DVDs released in the early 1990s to newer releases.

Navigation is fairly straightforward: you can sort the site using scenes or DVDs, and you can go to specific models. After that any sorting or searching begins to fall apart. Each movies has tags applied to it, but those tags arenít searchable and donít seem to have any impact on the search function either. For example, I searched the term Ďanalí and got many anal scenes, but I certainly didnít get all the anal scenes with that search. They really need to have a better search function.

When you open a DVD page there is a large screen at the top of the page where the movie can be streamed. There are a list of tags and performers, and then vertically down the right side of the page there are small thumbnails for each scene. The good news is that you can download the entire video very easily. The bad news is that if all you want are scenes this can be more confusing. Once you open a page for a specific scene the only information available is the female modelís name. There are no tags on these pages to give any indication as to whatís in the scene Ė just who. I downloaded scenes that I normally wouldnít have because the only information I had was female talent. For example, if I went to movie XYZ I could see that the Ďanalí tag is there so there is anal in the movie, but site doesnít tell me which scene has anal. I even downloaded what I though were b/g scenes that were actually lesbian.

Viewing the scenes is easy. There is a streaming option right on the page (which doesnít download or play automatically Ė full marks for that!). Downloading the scenes is easy using a drop-down menu to select the available resolutions. I give the site credit for making good quality uploads available. Obviously the older material wonít look as good, but on the newer material options are available. While not all options are available on all scenes, the possibilities are: DVD, 720p, 1080p and iPod. Iíd normally have selected the 720p but I found that the DVD quality was quite good so I chose that Ė and saved some disk space too. One caveat: the files are only available as mp4. No other options are available. The DVD files come in at 720x400 @ 800+ kb/s and 24fps. They look better than the specs suggest, and the HD stuff looks excellent.

Download managers are supported with no obvious timeouts. Download speeds were up to usual standards for similar sites.

The site does update by (apparently) adding one DVD a week. The schedule isnít easy to determine because they only use a ďreleaseĒ date which with older titles is clearly the date the original movie was released (it certainly wasnít added to the site in 1993) and with more recently added titles seems to be the date it was uploaded to the site.

The bottom line is that while the site has some flaws, Iíd still recommend it. Wicked isnít cookie-cutter porn like so many other studios. The material is great, I only wish the site did that material justice. And with the TBP/PU discount, the site is a good value.

Pros: - Among the best Public Nudity sites on the Ďnet
- Many well-known porn stars
- Simple and effective site design
- Good lighting and editing
- Multiple formats available
- Videos and photos available
- Very daring
Cons: - Forced to stop updating
- Photos seem to be a bit of an afterthought
Bottom Line: This is my second review of this site. I returned to it to see what was new and to download the videos and photos that were uploaded since I was last a member. I expected some changes, but one of the changes that I found was definitely a negative. Iíll get that one huge, negative change out of the way first: the site is no longer updating and hasnít updated since early November of 2011. According to the news posted on the site the owners didnít make this decision, rather it was forced on them through a cease-and-desist order from the City of Los Angeles. (As an aside, I see that a similar site, Nude in L.A. doesnít even exist now. They were a decent site in that they were more daring than most, but also managed to strip out a lot of titillation Ė pun not intended. So full marks to the guys at Teasers who are still keeping the site alive.)

The other significant change was just starting as I wrote my last review. At the time of that review they had only posted two scenes with the new format so I wasnít in a position to do much more than simply note the change. The site now has 13 shoots with the new format. The old format consisted of breaking a modelís scene down into various parts and labeling those parts accordingly. The new format seemed to be an attempt to create a quasi-reality-show feel to shoots. They are still on the Teasers site, but theyíre in a separate tab. Theyíre branded as ďReal Girls of Porn Valley.Ē Iím not opposed to the new format (with one major exception being that there is an opening screen on each segment) but apart from the labeling of the shoot, and of the individual scenes, there really isnít much of a change, and there certainly isnít any major improvement over the older format. If there is a positive, and this is subjective, it is that the scenes seem to push the limits a bit more under the new format. Because that tends to be model-specific that could just be luck though. (I suspect that some of the more daring shoots are what caused the Cityís legal response. Seeing Jennifer White standing naked in front of my house certainly wouldnít cause me to complain, but Iím probably not a good example in this caseÖ)

The format for both the older and newer shoots follows a bit of a formula. Most shoots follow the formula. The model is filmed as she tries on outfits and we see her changing; there is usually a scene with the model in a short skirt or dress and the camera follows her around in public areas as she flashes. There is a scene in each shoot where the model parades around in a skimpy bikini. There are also two or three clips of the model at a café (usually outdoor) where she is interviewed and asked to remove some clothing. Finally, there is usually a clip where the model is in a secluded, but still public, location where she strips nude and masturbates. In many shoots there is bonus material of the model masturbating back at the photographerís house. In the public scenes people and cars can be seen going by. This is subjective, but I really like that the site usually doesnít edit out the interaction between the model and the guys filming.

The models are the siteís main asset. There are many big porn stars here, and seeing them in the wild can be pretty interesting. Alexis Texas, Eden Adams and Katie St. Ives, among many other big names, have scenes here. If there is one downside to having such a model-centred site it is that the heat of the scene is really up to the model: if the model is daring and adventurous the shoot will be more fun to watch than if the model is shy and reserved. But a huge advantage to this is that this is one of the few public nudity sites that does show the models being nervous.

The technical stuff hasnít changed since I last reviewed the site, except now there are now more scenes posted. There has been some new BTS material added too. The videos are available as WMVs (resolution depends on when they were added but maxes out at to 960x540 @ 3000 kb/s). MP4 videos are available in high and low resolution.

Photos are available, as singles and zips at 800x1200 but the main thrust of the site are the videos.

Some readers will disagree with my position that a site that no longer updates still has lots of value. This is subjective, but given that this site does contain a lot of material, serves a rare niche (American public nudity), and that political authorities seem to be closing in on that niche, I think the site is an exceptional value. The way these guys shoot their scenes puts them in the top few public nudity sites, and maybe even the best out there. Given that the site is under attack and others have closed, if you have any interest in this genre my advice is to join now before they disappear.

Pros: - Huge collection of innovative videos
- Unique niche
- Multiple download options
- Photos available
- Beautiful models
- Hardcore sex in BDSM settings
Cons: - Limited search function
- Organization could be improved
- File names vary and are of limited use
- No tags assigned to videos
- Some missing scenes
Bottom Line: TTOO was the first Kink site I joined several years back and it remains my favourite. Most BDSM sites put a woman in bondage and inflict some pain. Some sites have a unique theme (Water Bondage) but the underlying premise is the same. TTOO is different: there is bondage, humiliation and pain, but the premise is the training of a submissive woman. The niche is the making of a sub, not what can be done after the sub is created.

The traditional TTOO shoots are broken down into days, with the normal training regime being conducted over four days. The intensity of the training is increased as each day passes. Bondage, humiliation, demeaning work, pain and training are all here. Sex occurs in the shoots. The sex is very well done but isnít the main focus: it occurs as part of the training, not just for the sex itself. The end product is near four hours of some intense video per shoot with exceptional production values.

In the past couple of years TTOO has added a new kind of shoot to keep things interesting. This is still about training, but theyíll bring in multiple girls to audition to be trained. These can last from one to four days and involve much of the same kinds of training as the main scenes, but have an extra element of competition. These share the usual high production standards that Kink has. These are innovative and a welcome addition to the site.

The technical stuff is standard for all Kink sites. Each scene has its own page where the video can be streamed or downloaded. Downloads are available in either WMV or Mp4 format. Two resolutions are available for both formats. The highest resolution for both comes in at 1280x720.

Like all Kink sites, TTOO offers photos as singles and zips, but this really isnít a photo site so I wonít go into any detail.

Iím a HUGE fan of the Kink sites and I may have been blind to some faults because of that. The faults are fairly minor but just look more serious given the overall quality of the site. I think that for a site to be exceptional it has to provide excellent porn, make that easily available to members and has to be well organized. Obviously the first element is the most important, and Kink delivers: this is incredible porn. They succeed in the member access by allowing download managers and having servers that never slow down and give some of the highest download speeds Iíve encountered. Where Kink falls down is in site organization.

To keep this succinct, here are my specific concerns:

- Limited search function Ė the search function is limited and doesnít work well. The problem appears that when you search a term the only thing it searches is the scene title, not the performers. So searching for star X wonít get you a scene if the scene is titled ďRope Slut.Ē You can search the model index but that isnít great either. You can locate scenes on specific Kink sites but you canít download them from there. The solution is to take a few key words from the title and go back to the main site page and search those terms.

- File names vary and are of limited use Ė this is likely subjective, but the file naming convention has no standardization. If you want to have any hope of organizing the scenes into related groups youíll need to do it as you download. One bright note is that each scene has a unique shoot number as part of the name and that can be searched. The issue is you may download ď1234_BobbiĒ as the Day 1 scene in Bobbi Starrís training, and then download ď1100_Bobbi_SĒ as Day 2. The problem is that unless you rename the files as you go, the Bobbi in day 1 might not be Bobbi Starr, and if youíre sorting your files numerically youíre apt to get Day 1 and Day 2 mixed up. In most instances, modelís last names arenít included as part of the file. I think a file-naming standard that captured the shoot number, modelís full name and day of the shoot would work much better.

The lack of a search function and odd naming are bad enough when dealing with the traditional multi-day shoots, but organizing some of the multi-girl, multi-day shoots is a lot of work.

While this sounds like Iím being overly fussy, keep in mind that TTOO goes out of itís way to produce multi-day shoots. These are amazing, but grouping the whole shoot together is a lot of work and their own file names make organizing the files difficult.

Other more minor concerns are the lack of tags. Iím not saying that they need tags for everything, but for narrow, specific and hard to find niches they could work. Finally, while rare, there are missing scenes. The training scenes lose continuity when a day is missing.

The bottom line is this: when you weigh the good things about TTOO against the things that need improvement there is no contest. This is compelling, unique porn with stunning models in high-quality scenes. The negatives pale in comparison. If you have even a passing interest in BDSM Iíd highly recommend a membership.

Pros: - 650+ videos
- Many big name stars appear
- Updates approximately every four days with the addition of a new scene
- Good variation in age, body type, tattoos/ no tattoos
- Variety of ways to download and view the videos
- Streaming is available
- Mp4 in two resolutions
- WMV in two resolutions
- Photos are available Ė usually broken down into Ďsetsí with set zips being offered
- Supports download managers with no obvious time-outs
Cons: - Probably a bit extreme for many
- Some may not like the price
Bottom Line: Full disclosure: I think Kink.com is likely the best online porn company in existence, but Iíll do my best to stay objectiveÖ

Obviously with any website if you donít have an interest in the material being offered then youíre likely not going to like it. That is especially true for a site like this where the material offered is definitely not mainstream porn. If you donít like extreme BDSM then you definitely wonít like this site, but I trust that you can still appreciate the effort that Kink puts into the scenes.

Device bondage is just that: the scenes all involve a female submissive being put into bondage by using various devices rather than more traditional ropes. Kink has amassed quite an impressive collection of implements to immobilize the models. Once immobilized the model is subjected to some further torment and in most cases there are forced orgasms. Actual sex does occur, but not in every shoot. Many of the Doms are females.

This may or may not be new since I last looked at this site, but I find that there are more big-name porn stars here. Amber Rayne appears to have shot a bunch of scenes in the past while and there are other stars that I wouldnít expect to see on an extreme BDSM site. Examples of this are Marie McCray, Sensi Pearl and Kaylee Hilton.

The scenes tend to follow a set formula: the scene begins with an interview where the viewers can see that this is 100% consensual. Then the scene is broken down into three segments so the girl isnít in one device for the entire scene. This adds a lot of variety and keeps the scenes from becoming dull. The interviews have been polarizing here at PU and Kink uses them on all their sites. I suspect that they do this more to appease the puritans and provide some measure of legal protection, but the frequent criticism of them is that including them at the first of the video can kill the sinister mood. I tend to agree with that and would prefer the interviews to be at the end or even as a separate file. But since theyíre easily skipped it isnít that big a deal.

As of this writing there are more than 650 scenes and updates are posted approximately every four days with one scene being added each time.

This could be a good or a bad thing, depending on how you view it, but the models on the site donít all look alike. There is a good mix of stars and lesser-knowns, ages range from 18+ to over 40. There are models with lots of tattoos and models without tattoos. The site seems to want to appeal to as broad an audience as possible.

Another Ďnewí element (which I may just have not noticed before) resolves one of the few complaints Iíve had about this site. I wish that theyíd include more behind-the-scenes material and show the model being put into the devices rather than just start with the model already restrained. The site has posted a few Ďliveí shoots where the cameras are left rolling as the model is put into the devices and the production staff communicates with members watching the show live. There arenít many of these live shoots, but it does give a glimpse into the inner workings of the site and I hope that the site continues to add them.

Being a Kink site, the technical bits are all up to or better than industry standards. Each scene has its own page and you can either stream or download the video. Downloads are available in either WMV or Mp4 format. Two resolutions are available for both formats. The highest resolution for both comes in at 1280x720. The bitrates are a bit different between the formats but both are approximately 7000kb/s. Both play at 30fps.

The site allows download managers and I didnít experience any of the links timing out. Download speeds are a bit faster than Iím used to at other sites.

Perhaps the one thing that many prospective members might take issue with is the price. I agree that price is important, but price has to be taken in context too. I think that the price, when weighed against the value of the site, is very fair: this isnít cookie-cutter porn. This is all exclusive, with mostly top-name models, in a dungeon-like building and excellent production values. Kink has some of the highest production values of any porn company and this stuff canít be cheap to make. If price is an issue, be sure to sign up for emails from them because they occasionally offer membership deals. Also, once youíre a member of one Kink site you get discounts on the other sites. An element to the value debate is that Kink isnít a Ďnetwork.í Each specific site requires a separate membership. Given the high production values and exceptionally high quality of the scenes on all of the sites, I donít think this detracts from the value.

Device Bondage continues to do almost everything very well, and since I was last a member there have even been a few improvements. Even at full price the site is a great value if you like whatís offered.
