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.

Pros: - Access to 44 Sites
- Interesting niche content
- Updates daily
- Site might be good for people who use streaming rather than downloads
- Photos available
Cons: - No usable search function
- No Stars named
- Meaningless file names
- Doesnít support download managers
- Many scenes appear to be clips but the others in the series arenít readily identified
- Must wait one minute between downloads
- 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.

Pros: - Large network
- 21 sites (including a relatively new BTS site)
- All interracial
- Some unusual niches
- Older scenes are being remastered
- Easy to use network
- Supports download managers (IDM)
- Easy access to download and viewing options
- Streaming is available
Cons: - Not all sites are updating
- Older remastered scenes may be dated and posted as a new update
- No effective search function
- No (that I could find) high-res or HD scenes
- More expensive than comparable sites
Bottom Line: Dog Fart Network (DFN) isnít a network that Iíd normally have joined, but Iím glad I did. I joined specifically to access one of their unique sites but I found many of the other sites quite good too.

DFN has 21 sites that cover a wide range of niches. The overall theme that runs through the network is interracial sex, specifically black men with white women. One site does feature white men and black women. The sites range from fairly standard porn, straight b/g, b/b/g, anal, etc., legal teen oriented sites, cougar sites, through sites that feature glory holes, and a couple of sites with some unique themes Ė Wife Writing and The Minion. Both of these are unique sites.

The network is simple in layout and operation: the homepage shows all 21 sites. You enter each site through that link and all the sites share the same simple layout: five scenes are listed per page and there is easy access to all the pages. One thing I particularly like about the sites is that on each page, beneath a large thumbnail of each scene, all the viewing and downloading options are available. So many other sites require the users to click through several pages before getting to the download or viewing links; DFNís choice to keep it simple is appreciated.

Speaking of the downloading and viewing options, DFN has more than most other sites. While only two formats are offered (WMV and MP4) those are usually offered in more than one size. I download WMVs and those are offered in two Ďsizesí Ė both come in at 640x480 with the only difference being that the larger ones are 4500kb/s versus the smaller ones at 1500kb/s. Both play at 30fps. Some of the older videos are a lower resolution. Oddly, for 2012, the site still allows users to download the videos in segments. While Iím sure that few people still need to do this, Iím sure that those who do appreciate this option.

While the resolutions are somewhat below standards, they still look crisp.

Streaming is also available in two resolutions that appear to be similar to the WMV downloads.

Speaking of older videos, DFN appears to be moving to remaster a lot of their older scenes. This is both good and bad, depending on how you look at it. The Ďbadí is that they seem to use the remastered videos as updates rather than posting new videos as often. I donít hold the opinion that this is necessarily bad because it gives access to fairly decent quality videos of stars from the past decade. I consider that to be good.

The site also offers photos, and like the videos there are several options. Interestingly, the options are for good resolution photos (1067x1600) taken during the video shoot, lower resolution screencaps and these things they call Ďpanelsí which are photos that contain four smaller photos. The higher resolution photos are available as zips but the other two sets are singles only.

The site supports download managers. I use Internet Download Manager and had no problem with links dying on me over a period of over an hour.

One glaring problem with the network is the lack of an effective search function or the use of tags. There is a search function, but it has serious flaws. It allows you to search for a word or words in the title or description of the scene but that can be a rather blunt tool. For example, I searched the term ďanalĒ and got a number of hits but many of the scenes had no anal sex in them. The site producers frequently refer to a womanís ďbirth canalĒ in the scene descriptions and that phrase was captured in a search for anal scenes. This could be solved by a smarter search engine, but it would probably be better solved by tagging scenes with niches.

Any potential member is obviously going to make their own decision on value, but in DFNís case some people may jump to a conclusion based solely on price. The issue is that DFN charges $35 per month, which is more than most comparable sites. Is it worth $35? My opinion is that it is. I think weíve become accustomed to lower prices but the market has changed and we all may need to rethink the value equation. In this case, you get access to over a thousand exclusive scenes with decent production values and fast downloads (with no obvious limits, I might add). I think thatís good value. (As an aside, Iím not sure where the upper limit on pricing is, but I note that last week TBP posted a review of a BDSM site, Infernal Restraints, that commands $65 per month. Iím a BDSM fan, but that seems a bit steep.)

One potential concern that has been expressed before is that several of the sites do not appear to be actively updating with new material. Iím fine with this as long as the network is updating and the remastering continues.

The bottom line is that I certainly recommend DFN. Its top-quality porn, and specifically interracial porn, with top porn stars thatís well produced and easy to access at a fair price.

Pros: - Interesting and under-served niche
- Part of the Dog Fart Network
- Many options to view / download scenes
- Photos available
- Streaming video available
- Still updating Ė but slowly with usually just one scene per month
- Many popular porn stars
- Supports download managers (I use Internet Download Manager)
Cons: - Small site
- Scenes are mostly just oral
- Could play the BDSM role more
Bottom Line: This review might be best served if I define the niche first. The focus on the site is that in the course of the scene the male uses a marker to write on the femaleís nude body. Iím guessing that the Ďwifeí part of the title is only for alliteration.

I joined Dog Fart Network specifically to get access to this site. This is a very small niche and my interest in it stems mostly from its use as part of BDSM. While the site is interesting and reasonably well done, I was a bit disappointed with the theme since the Ďwritingí is done to highlight the fact that the scenes are interracial rather than specifically as part of BDSM. (So instead of having ďWhoreĒ written on her forehead the model might have ďBlack Cock LoverĒ instead. Iím probably really splitting hairs here but for anyone into this niche it can make a difference. Still, Iíll take what I can get.)

Two things that any future member may want to know: the male talent is all black. That shouldnít make a difference, but some may prefer to see a Caucasian male once in a while. The other thing is that actual intercourse is rare; most of the scenes are only oral. I didnít see any anal in the few scenes where intercourse occurs. The female talent ranges from relative unknowns to popular porn stars.

The site is quite small with only 43 scenes available. It is one of the DFN sites that is still updating though, but the updates are fairly slow only coming in approximately once a month.

The site layout is simple: you open onto a page where six scenes are listed. Each scene has a large screen-cap of the model. One thing I particularly like is that the video and photo options are available right below the modelís name and screen-cap. Thereís no need to open a second page just to access the scene. I also like that there is a brief description of the scene too which can provide more information for you to consider before downloading.

Speaking of video download options, the site offers two: WMV and MP4. WMV files are usually offered in two sizes. Interestingly, both sizes come in at 640x480 but the difference in that the larger ones are 4500kb/s while the smaller ones are 1500kb/s. Both play at 30fps. MP4s are usually offered in three sizes. I use WMV so I donít have the specs on the MP4s. Some of the older videos (but not all) come in at 640x360.

This seems odd in 2012, but the WMV files are also offered in segments for both the lower and higher resolutions. I canít imagine there are many people out there who would prefer segments when the full video is available too.

The site supports download managers and I had no problem with links dying on me.

I didnít view the site on a mobile device but there is a separate link for those users where various viewing and downloading options are also available. Surely no member could complain about a lack of viewing options here.

Streaming is also available, but I donít use that so I canít really comment on it. The scenes I tested looked okay on a monitor. The resolution of the two available streams seems to be close to the WMV downloads. The streams open in a new page and play on the siteís player.

While the site is really a video site they do offer photos. In keeping with the various options for videos there are options for the photos too. There are separate photos taken of the model during the scene. These are available as singles or zips. The resolution is pretty good at 1067x1600. There are also lower resolution screen-caps available. Then there are ďpanelsĒ which is a photo made up of four screen-caps fitted per page. Neither the screen-caps nor the panels are available as zips.

As BDSM goes, this site is fairly weak. I think they could improve by playing the Dom/sub roles a bit more. Still, sites that cater to this niche are rare. This is the only one I know of, so if another PU member has some recommendations Iíd appreciate getting them.

Even though the site is small and the videos arenít exactly what I was hoping for, Iíd definitely recommend the site for anyone with an interest in this niche. And Iím not just saying that because there is nothing else out there. This site could stand alone and still be a good value at the right price. Admittedly though, unless youíre into this obscure niche like I am the real value of the site is the access to the rest of the Dog Fart Network.

Pros: - Nothing else quite like it
- Pushes the boundaries on extreme insertions
- Very rare male on female anal fisting
- Exclusive material
- Photos and Videos
- Resolutions on even mid-grade videos look great
- Updates regularly
Cons: - Streaming only
- true HD stutters a lot even with a high-speed connection
- Insertions only Ė no actual sex
- Expensive for whatís offered
Bottom Line: First, please let me introduce you to an 800lb. gorilla in the room because readers will definitely notice it: yes, this is an EXTREME site. It isnít for everyone. Heck, Iím pretty sure that a lot of it isnít even for me, and Iím a fan of extreme anal stuff. So, readers, please remember that even if you donít like this niche, Iím wearing my reviewerís hat as much as my pervertís hat, so please keep the comments civil.

The other 800lb. gorilla in the room is the fact that the site offers no downloads at all. That goes for photos and videos. The site explains and justifies that by noting the risk of piracy if we, people who actively support pay sites, are allowed to keep what we see. I have no doubt that piracy is probably the biggest problem in the online porn industry today and Iím sure it hurts small sites like this much more than big sites, but I am not convinced that penalizing supportive paying customers is the solution. I really hope that the site re-thinks this policy.

Hot Kinky Jo is an attractive Russian model who speaks good English and appears to be in her mid-20s. Sheís petite and has looks more common in mainstream porn rather than the often rough, hard look of a model who pushes the limits in extreme fetish porn. According to an interview she gave to Jay Sin in Anal Acrobats she got her start doing webcam work and discovered she has a particular Ďtalentí for being able to insert large objects into her ass. Iím not sure if there is such a title, but if there is then Jo deserves to be labeled the Queen of Extreme Anal Insertions. In fact, I suspect that if the title comes with a crown then she could easily insert that into her bum.

The videos all feature some sort of extreme anal play. There are solo scenes where Jo anally fists herself, scenes where she uses huge dildos in her ass, including one where she takes more of a horse-dick dildo than would seem possible. There are scenes where she is with one or more women where there is more extreme insertion and usually female on female anal fisting. There are even a few scenes with male on female anal fisting. Iím not aware of any other site that offers this. In several scenes Jo actually takes more than one fist in her: three go in during one scene. I warned you that this was extreme stuff. One thing you will not see is actual anal sex, but that isnít the theme here anyway.

One niche that the site promotes is prolapse or ďrosebudĒ porn. I am most definitely NOT a fan of this and I know this sounds weird, but I have no stomach for prolapse stuff in the middle of a fisting video.

The site is very small, which is likely because itís so new. There are only 17 videos and 15 photo shoots available as of this writing. To make matters worse, the videos are short, all coming in at just under eight minutes long. But Iím guessing that if youíre having your ass fisted, eight minutes could seem like an eternityÖ

The photo sets all have 100+ photos. Many of the photos shoots appear to be shot at the same time as the videos.

The site, which only began last month, currently updates every two or three days. Video updates seem more frequent than photo updates.

I canít give full specs on the videos or photos because I donít know how to do that for streams. The videos are offered in three resolutions, low (1.5MB/s), medium (5)MB/s) and HD (10MB/s). I have a 60MB/s fibre op connection and I found the HD stuff unwatchable due to stuttering and long and frequent buffering delays. But when the HD stuff played, it did look good. The medium looks excellent too and didnít suffer the same problems. The photos also offer three resolutions. Both videos and pictures open into a viewer on the page. I really canít give much more technical detail because I donít normally use streaming.

Not that this is relevant, but this site is the first Iíve noticed that uses the new ďxxxĒ top-level domain. Until I noticed that I couldnít figure out why I couldnít find the site by simply googling ďhotkinkyjo.Ē

Iíll usually base a recommendation on value. And for me, cost is only one factor in deciding on value. Given the uniqueness of this site Iíd normally be willing to say it provides decent value even though it costs $30 per month and only has a small amount of material. But Ė and this is only my opinion Ė the lack of downloads means I just canít recommend this. Until they offer downloads I wonít be back and Iíd only recommend the site to someone who really likes this niche and understands that it is streaming only.

Pros: - Cute solo model
- 200+ Videos
- Can be added as an extra-cost option with BangBros
- Unique take on the solo model concept
- Good mix of solo, girl/girl and boy/girl scenes
- Good mix of traditional porn and amateur stuff
- Offers full trial
Cons: - No longer updating
- Video quality was average back when it was shot and is below average now
- Be careful when cancelling if youíve added this as an addition site to the network
Bottom Line: Weíve had this discussion here before: can a site still have value if it isnít updating? I come down strongly on the Ďyesí side of that debate. In this case, even if you pay full price you get approximately 80 hours of exclusive video for $18. Thatís fair value even if it isnít updating.

Brandi Belle is a cute, late-teen, early-twenties model. Iíd never seen her before so I assume her only work is on this site. Sheís definitely attractive, but not necessarily got a Ďporní look to her. She looks more like the hot girl next door.

While the site is technically a solo girl site, it isnít like so many other solo sites: it offers solo scenes, girl/girl scenes and even boy/girl hardcore scenes. What makes the site stand out, however, are the scene set-ups in many of the scenes: many of them arenít the standard scenes so common in porn. Sure, a lot of the scenes use common set-ups, but many have quirky set-ups like having three girls lie down and see how far a guy can ejaculate onto them, or deciding whether the Fleshlight feels as good as the real thing. Those set-ups add some fun and spice to the scenes and make them more interesting to watch. Some of the scenes seem to feature real amateurs too. They appear to be the genuine thing since some of them are pretty nervous about being on camera.

The site is part of the Bang Bros network and you have a choice of how you get access. I added it as an extra-cost add-on to my BB membership but they also have a 1-day full trial or you can get monthly access to the site for an $18 TBP discount. I donít know if you buy the latter membership if you get full network access too. When adding the site as an extra cost add-on it appears that you get full access to the site. I note this because I also added Public Invasion and only got access to a handful of the scenes offered on the main site. TBP states that there are 200+ scenes on the site and I downloaded most of them and have 205.

Since this is a Bang Bros site it is organized in the same way as the other sites on that network. There really is no need for a search function.

Download speeds were average but as with the rest of the network while download managers work the timeouts on the links are so short that using a manager is difficult.

Like Bang Bros, the videos are available in WMVs or MP4s. Since the videos were produced and added between 2005 and 2007 the video quality isnít up to 2012 standards. It was probably just average when it was produced. I use WMVs and the most common resolution is 640x480 at 1000kb/s and 30fps. The next most common resolution is 720x406 at 1500kb/s and 30fps.

Back in April exotics4rme noted that there could be problems in cancelling your membership when you add on additional sites. Those concerns are still valid. While a simple click will cancel your main network membership you will have to hunt around to find any add-ons to ensure that those are cancelled too. Iím not saying that I think they do this deliberately, but they donít make that clear and they donít make it easy. This could be solved if they used a reputable biller but they donít Ė they bill in-house.

The bottom line is that the site is large enough and offers three membership options that can make the site a good value even if it no longer updates. The site offers a lot of video and a unique take on the solo girl niche. Iíd recommend it to anyone who likes the niche and likes Brandi Belleís look.

Pros: - Huge collection dating back five years
- One of the few sites available that photo fans and video fans can both enjoy
- Standard-setting production values
- Site has a Ďpersonalí feel thanks to the models and staff
- Site is simple, but user-friendly
- Exclusive content (not found elsewhere)
- Unique content (nothing else like it on the Ďnet)
- Bills through CC Bill
- Excellent value
- Allows download managers with no obvious timeouts
- Offers HD in multiple formats
Cons: - None. Seriously, none.
Bottom Line: ALS Scan is a site that I shouldnít like because I generally have little interest in solo girl, masturbation scenes and girl-girl scenes. But even though thatís all that ALS Scan offers, the site is certainly in my top-five favourite sites and a site that I go back to regularly.

I wonít go into a lot of detail about the technical specs of the site because those have been addressed before by me and others in earlier reviews. The site continues to offer HD video in both MP4 and WMV. I didnít bother to comment on that in a previous review because I didnít realize how rare that is. Due to size restrictions, many sites only offer HD in MP4 format and leave those of us who still prefer WMV to live with a lower-resolution file or go with MP4. This would appear to show the level of customer support that the site has if they take this extra step to keep a few of us happy.

Iíve said before that for me to really like a site it has to excel at three things: 1) the content has to be good, 2) the site design needs to be effective and user-friendly, and 3) the material needs to be easily accessed by the members either by streaming or download. A lot of sites score high on two of those, but few score high on all three of those. ALS is one of the sites that does well on all three. They certainly knock two of them out of the park and do better than average on another.

First the content: like any site, if you donít like the content youíre not going to like the site regardless of how great the technical aspects are. In this respect prospective members really need to know that ALS Scan isnít a Ďnormalí porn site. There is no hardcore b/g here at all. Thereís no b/g stuff period. There is mostly solo and g/g material. If youíre not into that, the site might seem a bit dull, but they add some unique character by having lots of behind-the-scenes stuff too. I call it BTS, but only because I canít think of a better term for it. Some people donít like this, but some like me do, and thatís having the camera rolling during a photo shoot. Iím not sure why I like it, but I do and this stuff is very well done. ALS Scan may be best known, however, for their location shoots in the Caribbean, which seem to occur annually. These are a lot of fun to watch and take place at a villa and on the beach. For a site that shoots so much outdoor material the production values are incredible. These guys have the technical aspects of lighting, sound, camerawork and editing down solid. They should teach others these skills. The site offers hundreds, perhaps thousands of exclusive videos and all of them have a unique and personal feel to them. Itís like the staff are making porn that they like with no concerns about commercial value Ė except that what they make is so good it has exceptional value.

In terms of content, one thing that hasnít been posted in several years and I really wish theyíd shoot more of is European public nudity and body painting. Iím a big fan of this stuff and when the staff at ALS Scan did it they applied their usual high standards and made some of the best public nudity scenes available on the Ďnet. (So if an ALS Scan staffer happens to read this, please, please, please shoot more public nudity!)

As for site design, it can be best described as Ďprimitive.í But while that might be a problem for many other sites it really isnít here. Given the narrow focus of the site having a search function really wouldnít add a lot of value. As it is, you can sort for photos or videos and you can sort by model. Beyond that not much is really needed. I think a fair contrast with the site design here might be to Videobox which had a simple, effective and plain-looking site. Then the marketers decided to make it look pretty to attract new members but in doing so they made it less user-friendly. The ALS Scan site probably looks like it did way back when they started, and since it works I hope they donít see the need to make the site flashier at the expense of utility.

As for accessibility the site scores high here too. Downloads are fast, the site allows download managers, there appears to be no timeouts on downloads and there are no download limits. It seems that the site owners sat down and thought what theyíd like if they were the customer and then did it.

Another rare attribute is that the site caters to both photo and video collectors. They offer high quality regardless of what youíre looking for. Iím not normally a photo collector, but this is one site that I make an exception. The photo quality is incredible.

Obviously I highly recommend ALS Scan, with the caveat on content. Even if you really have limited interest in the stuff they offer Iíd still recommend giving them a try. The content is playful, personal and erotic thanks to the models and staff and the site lets you access it easily. That makes the site an excellent value.

Pros: - Still the undisputed champion of DVD sites
- Huge selection
- Wide variety of niches
- Add-on Ďchannelsí at reasonable prices
- Channel prices are still pro-rated for your first month
- New studios being added
- Still adds five DVDs per day
- Excellent value
- Good download speeds
- Supports download managers with no timeouts
- Multiple viewing options
- VB3 is still not mandatory
- Prospective members can view the full site before joining
- The best alternative to pirated porn on the Ďnet
Cons: - Over-reliance on compilations and low grade Euro movies
- Wonít allow using the same username and password on rejoin
Bottom Line: Before anyone gets mad at this, being my sixth review of VB, let me just say that I planned this as just a comment and then got carried away.

There isnít much more that one can say about VB that hasnít already been said here, but Iíll try. The site offers a virtual porn mega-store with over 12,000 DVDs and the site continues to grow. Whatís interesting is that the opinions and ratings here really run the full spectrum. My personal opinion on VB tends to run with those who are big fans. I join VB twice a year and probably will continue to do so as long as the site exists. I rank it high because what it does, it does well.

The site has hundreds of studios on offer and as the site grows they appear to be attracting more. I wish that some of the bigger studios offered more of their titles to VB but a site this size can only continue to grow as it brings sales to studios that need them. Almost any interest can be satisfied here with the only limitation being that as VB relies on DVDs they donít have some of the more extreme niches since those arenít usually issued on DVDs. But if it happens to be available on DVD, VB probably has some titles in that genre.

VB continues to offer the DVDs in a variety of ways. Streaming is available and downloads are available in both WMV and MP4 formats. The highest resolution available on most is only 640x480 which is low by todayís standards and those come in at 3300kb/s and 30fps. Only one DVD per day is offered with an HD option.

One thing that Iíve always respected about VB is that they donít just rely on a few flashy preview pages and then ask for your credit card number. VB lets prospective members see the entire site. I wish other porn sites would follow this model.

VB still offers premium Ďchannelsí at additional cost. These are great value if you like those studios and VB still offers a pro-rated price through your first month. If you join in week two of your VB membership youíll only pay half the price until both sites renew.

While Iím a big VB fan the site isnít without its flaws. Iíve said this before, and I remain convinced of it: one of VBís biggest selling points is also one of its biggest flaws, namely the addition of five titles per day. What person would argue against more porn, you might ask? One who prefers quality over quantity. With 12,000+ DVDs on the site no one would dispute that VB is the biggest player in downloadable porn DVDs. But to sustain that growth VB relies to heavily on compilations with re-hashed scenes and on low grade Euro porn. Iíll admit that there is an element of subjectivity in this opinion, but I think Iím also being objective when I say that having the same scene on the site in three or four different titled movies adds nothing. Thankfully VB members usually point out a repost so you can avoid it if you have it. As for the Euro stuff, while Iím not a huge Euro fan I can still recognize that there is a difference between good porn and bad porn. They do have good Euro porn here, but they add a lot of bad stuff too. My recommendation to VB is to drop the five-DVD schedule and concentrate on quality instead. One or two quality DVDs per day would be fine and judging from many of the comments on the VB site many other members would agree with me. (I understand that the compilation issue isnít VBís fault since the industry cranks them out, but while they make sense in DVD format, they donít make sense as a download.)

One minor gripe is that the site doesnít let you use the same username and password when you rejoin. Iíd prefer that when I join with the same email Iím given my usual name and password.

The most polarizing aspect of VB seems to be the VB3 interface. My opinion of VB3 is that it appears to be something dreamed up by the marketing people to lure in new members who are attracted to bright shiny things. If that works, thatís great, because obviously VB needs members to continue to operate. It also appears that the technical people have some clout because the old site is still available and still fully functional. Whenever I go to VB the first link I click on is to go to the old site. I hope that option remains available, and I hope that if enough people also vote for the old site with a mouse click that the marketing exercise that is VB3 will be shelved.

Recently, other PU members have reported having low download speeds and even having downloads stop. I experienced none of that and Free Download Manager downloaded everything at the highest supported speed and never once had a broken link or a failed download. It may be that whatever caused that is now fixed.

The bottom line for me is that Iíll continue to both support and recommend VB. It has a few flaws, but those are far outweighed by its advantages. With sites like VB no one has an excuse to access pirated porn or tube sites. VB remains an incredible value and I hope theyíre around for a long time.

Pros: - Huge collection
- Many sites
- Offers HD on many scenes (in MP4 only)
- New sites added
- Good variety of ethnicities, ages and body types
Cons: - Video quality isnít great (with WMVs)
- Time-outs for links are very short
- Some sites have just been abandoned
- Found an unusually high number of WMV files with sound that wasnít synchronized with the video
- Large number of ads and upsells Ė many sites are additional cost
- Sites donít list scenes by model Ė theyíre given a unique name
- Doesnít bill through a reputable biller
- A lot of fake breasts and tattoos
Bottom Line: This has been one of the most difficult reviews Iíve written here. On one hand, this network offers a lot of decent porn for a low price. On the other hand, it takes an ďall-you-can-eat-buffetĒ approach to porn: thereís lots of it but a lot of it seems the same. I would (and will) recommend the site, but only for people looking for specific things in a porn site.

Bang Bros doesnít need much of an introduction here, but for those who donít know it, it is a collection of 20+ sites covering a wide variety of niches. The sites are listed at TBP so I wonít mention them here. There is lots of variety, and lots of well-known talent here too. The scenes are shot reasonably well and the website is relatively easy to navigate and use. I have no idea how many scenes are on offer, but it has to be several thousand at least.

Each scene on each site opens into a separate page where you can select how to view the scene or photos. The scene can be streamed in ďlight,Ē ďmediumĒ and HD. I canít vouch for those as I prefer downloads. Downloads are available as WMVs and MP4s. While the MP4s are available in several file sizes (from ďsmallĒ to ďHDĒ) the WMVs are only available in one size. I prefer WMVs so thatís what I downloaded. Those come in at 640x480 @ 1100kb/s and 30fps. Subjectively, theyíre what youíd expect for those specs. I do wish that the network offered more choice for WMVs. While this isnít widespread, I did find a higher number of WMV files with unsynchronized audio than Iíd see on other sites. This is a fairly rare problem, so to have it occur on 20+ scenes seems high.

The network does offer a lot of material in HD. The HD is MP4 only and comes in at 1280x720 at 3000kb/s and 30fps. These, obviously, look a lot better than the low resolution WMVs.

While photos are available, this really isnít a photo site. The photos are screencaps of the videos and are available as singles or as zips. I didnít download any photos.

Speaking of downloads, while the network would allow you to use a download manager to increase the download speed, the link timeouts were so short that a manager couldnít be used to queue up multiple scenes. The timeouts are the shortest Iíve ever encountered on a site that still allows download managers, being less than two minutes before the link would go dead.

This isnít a pro or con, but it seems odd that the network stops updating sites but creates another one with a similar niche. It really doesnít matter, but why stop updating one BJ site only to create another similar one? Not to be too cynical, but my guess is that it helps in marketing by being able to say you have more sites.

The network does have its flaws, though Iíll admit many of the flaws I see are subjective. My biggest issue is that when browsing a specific site you have a thumbnail of the scene and below that is the scene name and the date it was uploaded. While I have nothing against providing that information, I do wish that theyíd also provide the modelís name. I found it easier to browse the network by model than by site.

This is definitely a subjective criticism, but the site seems to favour larger models than I normally like. Iím not talking BBW or anything like that, but my preference runs to the more petite models. Petite models are here, but the site seems to favour those with larger breasts and asses. Tattoos are also plentiful. If you like your models petite and unadorned, you may not like this network. On the other hand, there are a lot of different ages and races here too.

Another issue here is that even after joining the network youíll see lots of ads for other sites and up-sells for other, additional-cost, network sites. While I can understand why a network would want to generate more income, this network really makes these ads and up-sells prominent. (But since I joined two of the up-sells, they obviously work.)

The network manages its own accounts so there is no biller. As exotics4me noted in a comment, you really need to make sure your membership is cancelled, a particularly is youíve added sites for additional cost. The simple means for cancelling only applies to the main network so unless you specifically cancel the add-on sites that billing may recur.

As I said at the beginning, even with the flaws Iíd still recommend this site, though not to everyone and only after explaining the siteís weaknesses. Iíd recommend the site to someone looking to access a lot of porn for a decent price where quality isnít the motivating factor. Who would this be? Likely someone deciding to give up on ďtubeĒ sites and start actually paying for the porn they use. I wouldnít recommend this network to a long-time porn collector with experience with great sites. That would be recommending that someone who dines at Mortonís Steakhouse try Uncle Moeís Family Feedbag. Both serve a purpose, but some people wonít feel satisfied at Moe's.

Pros: - $14.95 TPB/PU discount
- Supports download managers (see comment below)
- Scenes have a decent amount of heat and eroticism
- Beautiful models, most well-known porn stars
- Appears to be exclusive content
- Very high production values
- Updates regularly
- Seems to be affiliated with the Fame Digital Group
- Can sort by tags and models
Cons: - Limited resolutions available for WMV users
- The theme may be repetitive for all but the most ardent massage aficionados
- Lack of hardcore sex may be an issue for some
- No independent biller (see comment)
Bottom Line: This site doesnít market itself as a network, and Iím not saying it is one, but membership to one site gets you membership to three other massage-themed sites so Iíll cover all four sites here.

While there are subtle variations between the sites the basic elements are the same in all of them: a guy walks into the massage parlor to get a massage. The girl greets the guy, they undress and shower together, they usually start the massage in a large tub and then the massage continues on an air mattress or massage table. In Nuru Massage they use a thick, clear massage oil for which the type of massage and this site are named. In Soapy Massage they use soap bubbles as the medium, and the massage is a bit more traditional in Massage Parlor. In all cases there is a Ďhappy endingí and in 80% of scenes on all sites there is oral. There are a few sex scenes, but those are rare. All Girl Massage seems to follow a similar pattern, though I didnít watch many of those.

Some potential members might find the massage theme can get a little dull after a while. I agree that it can, but if you like massage as a niche this is definitely well done. The models play their roles well and they keep the heat and eroticism turned up. Some may not like the fact that there is very little sex (apart from oral), but I think that adds to the heat and realism.

The details on each site are:

ē Nuru Massage Ė 166 videos, updates with one video per week
ē Massage Parlor - 220 videos, updates several times per week with the addition of one scene per update
ē Soapy Massage Ė 242 videos, updates irregularly and infrequently, but at least one scene per month is added
ē All Girl Massage Ė 106 videos, updates with one video per week

The site is either affiliated with or uses the same web design as Fame Digital. I think itís the former. This is a good thing, in my opinion, because the quality of these sites is very good. And like other Fame sites there is a TBP / PU discount. Unfortunately, like other Fame sites, they donít use a biller though Iíve never had a membership issue with any Fame site before.

TBP includes Nuru Massage as an Asian site, which seems appropriate considering the idea of Nuru massage is Japanese, but while there is a higher percentage of Asian models on the site than on many other porn sites, I donít think Iíd call this an Asian site. It may be that when TBP reviewed it originally the site had more Asian models, but now they arenít even in the majority. When you consider all four sites as a group this is definitely not an Asian site. That could be good or bad, depending on your tastes.

The models are all beautiful and most are well known porn stars. There are different body types to suit most tastes. Some have too many tattoos but thatís just part of the business these days. In his earlier review, GCode noted there were only 15 models on the site. This has improved significantly with 77 available now.

The scenes all appear to be exclusive. I collect massage-themed stuff and Iíve never seen them elsewhere. Also, given that the set and set-up is essentially the same for all the scenes that supports that these are exclusive. The production values are great too: the lighting, sound, camerawork and editing are all top-notch.

There is no search function on any of the sites but one isnít needed either. You can sort the scenes using different tags and you can sort by model. This may sound too limiting, but given the single theme of the sites it works well.

If youíre familiar with Fame sites the site design will look familiar. Each scene opens to a page where you can download or stream the video. Video downloads are available as WMVs in 240p or 480p resolutions. MP4s are available in 240, 480, 540, 720 and 1080p. I prefer WMV files and I downloaded the 480p ones which come in at 720x400 at 2200kb/s and 30fps. I canít make any assessment of the MP4s. While I understand why a site would limit WMVs (due to the larger size, I suspect) I do wish that they offered more choice with that file type. In their defence, even though the numbers donít look all that impressive, subjectively the videos look great.

An issue Iíve had in the past with Fame sites is that they have a short time-out on the links which makes using a download manager difficult. Iíll admit that I have a faster connection from the last time I had a Fame membership, but the problem doesnít seem to be nearly as bad here as Iíve experienced in the past.

The bottom line is that Iíd definitely recommend these sites. As usual, the caveat is that you have to like the set-up, but for the price it is even worth it to join just to get a few addition scenes with some favourite stars. The sites have excellent material to offer and they offer it through a website thatís easy to use and they sell it at a great price. The whole combination is an excellent value.

Pros: - Unique site
- Beautiful models from around the world
- Videos and photos
- Videos available in multiple formats and resolutions
- Photos available in zips and in multiple resolutions
- HD available in most scenes (as high as 1080)
- Great mix of solo, girl/girl and boy/girl hardcore
- Currently 139 models
- Supports download managers (with no obvious time-outs)
- Site updates regularly
- Might appeal to couples
- Bills through CC Bill
Cons: - No search function or tags (please see comment on that below)
- BTS videos canít be downloaded
Bottom Line: X-Art isnít a site that Iíd normally join because I prefer porn that has a harder edge to it, so I was pleasantly surprised that I liked this site as much as I did. The site has that elusive combination of stunning models, excellent technical elements and a user-friendly website. Many sites get two of those components right but few have them all. Iím convinced that the sites that do get everything right do so because of site owners / webmasters who actually care about the material theyíre producing and putting on their site.

The site currently has 139 models. Most of those models have both videos and photos but there are a few who only do photos. Many donít have a lot of material available but there are a few who have lots of material so it balances out.

There isnít a lot of variety in the models; theyíre all Caucasian (with one or two Asians), young (18-25) and thin (but not skinny). This isnít a problem if, like me, you happen to like the type of models that the site selects, but if you prefer fuller-figured women or different races youíll not be as happy with the site. There is a mix of nationalities too.

The models are naturally beautiful, not the airbrushed, heavily made-up models that many other sites feature. Unique features like freckles are allowed to shine through, giving even more appeal.

The site has many things going for it, but one thing that really sets them apart is the chemistry between the models in the lesbian and b/g hardcore scenes. The chemistry is obvious because it exists, and also because it doesnít exist in most other sites. In most other sites the overriding feeling that the viewer gets is that here are two people being paid to have sex. Obviously the models here are also being paid, but they seem to be into the sex too. This is an assumption, but Iíll give credit to the models themselves and to the site staff who obviously play a role in creating and then capturing that chemistry. The chemistry in the scenes likely makes this a couples-friendly site.

The site offers lots of choice on how you can download or view the material. Videos can be streamed and downloaded. All videos have multiple options for downloads, though those vary depending on when the video was uploaded. The scenes are always available in WMV and Quicktime formats with lower resolutions for mobile devices being added more recently. WMVs and Quicktime videos are available in 960x540 and 1280x720 (5,000+ kbps) and in newer videos theyíre also available in 1920x1080 (8500+ kbps). I download the WMVs and theyíre in codec 7 and 30 fps. The videos are relatively short with the average being 10 to 12 minutes. A previous comment noted that these are too short, but I donít agree with that. The videos have a natural feel to them which lends itself to the shorter format. Subjectively, the videos look great.

The photos are also available in different resolutions Ė 1200, 2000 and 4000 pixels. Theyíre available as zips. The number of photos per set varies from a low of 30+ to a high of 120+ but the average set has about 80 photos in it.

The site updates daily on weekdays with either a video or photo set being added.

The site allows download managers (I use Free Download Manager) and there are no obvious timeouts.

An interesting feature is the use of original music in many of the scenes. Normally music isnít something that Iíd notice, but the choices here really do add to the feel of the scenes.

There isnít really anything to complain about, but I do have a couple of minor issues. I like behind-the-scenes clips Ė especially on sites like this where it gives a chance to see more of the modelís personality. While BTS material is available here, and even has its own tab, I canít figure out how to download the clips. It appears that the only option is to stream them. Iím assuming that the site made a conscious decision to do this, but I wish theyíd make them available for download.

There isnít a search function available, nor are there tags. The videos can be sorted, however, depending on theme (solo, g/g, b/g). Normally Iíd criticize a site for such a glaring omission, but in this case Iím not. The reason for that is that the site seems to be focused solely on the models. I realize Iím making yet another assumption here, but it is possible that the site made a decision to not offer a search function or tags as a means of keeping the models more real. Thatís how it feels anyway Ė I appreciate stumbling on an incredible hardcore scene with a beautiful model and that makes me appreciate it more than if I could select ďshaved pussy,Ē ďhardcoreĒ and ďanal.Ē Or maybe Iím just over-thinking this.

The bottom line for me is that Iíd highly recommend a membership at X-art. If you like the type of model featured on the site it has a lot of varied material available for a great price. Not only would I recommend the site, but itís on my list of sites to join again.

Pros: - Affiliated with Diesel Access, so the same quality is here
- Videos and photos
- Amazing quality for both videos and photos
- Incredibly beautiful models
- Good mix of solo, masturbation, girl/girl and boy/girl hardcore
- Models do live shows
- Bills through CC Bill
Cons: - Site wonít remember your username / password even though that option is available
- Photo pages load the whole set as good resolution thumbnails so that takes a lot of bandwidth even if all you want to do is download the zip
- Photo sets wonít download with download manager (Free Download Manager specifically)
- Iím unsure about exclusivity though some of the models are definitely not exclusive to this site or related sites
- Not sold as part of the Diesel Access network
- Some overlap with other Diesel sites
Bottom Line: Wow Girls is obviously affiliated with Diesel Access (18 Only Girls, Young Legal Porn and more) so any comments made in reviews of those sites will apply here too. The layout is the same, the models are the same and there are even some scenes and photo sets that are on both sites. This site isnít part of that network so youíll only get access to this one site with your membership.

This site has many of the same models as found on the Diesel Access network. For some, that may be a negative, but given the comments about the models on other reviews I suspect that most people would agree with my opinion that these models are some of the most beautiful young women on the internet. The potential downside of this is that if you donít like the types of models that the site has then you obviously wonít like the site. The models are exclusively young (18-20), petite and (usually) small-breasted.

The site is relatively new so it is still small but it does update regularly so it will continue to grow. It updates daily with either a video or photo set added. Currently there are 48 models, 139 videos and 235 photo sets.

The site uses the same simple and effective layout as used by the Diesel sites. You can search using tags or keywords. Each of the models has a separate page to keep things simple.

Videos are available as either WMV or MPEG-4. In most scenes there are resolution options for the MPEG-4 ranging from lower resolution for mobile devices up to 1080p HD. The WMV files are usually only available in HD. The newest videos are at 1920x1080 at 7000+ kb/s and 30fps. They use WMV Codec 9. Subjectively they look amazing Ė theyíre incredibly crisp. The drawback to the high quality is that the file sizes can be large. A 20 minute video can be 2GB in size.

While photos make up more than half the site this really isnít a photo site. The photo sets are mostly shot as part of the videos. Most of the photo sets are available in multiple resolutions. Iím not a photo collector but I make an exception for many of these models. The highest resolutions are 3200x4800 and they look amazing.

The videos and photos are a great mix of solo, masturbation, b/g hardcore and g/g scenes. Thereís even some anal and peeing in the mix too.

There are some minor negatives and these may even come across as being petty, but they stick out a bit because the site is otherwise so well done. For starters, the site wonít remember your username and password even though that option is available. To make that worse, the password is randomly generated and assigned so youíll need to keep it handy. A pet peeve of mine is having videos stream automatically as the page loads. I dislike that because it needlessly sucks a lot of bandwidth. That doesnít occur here, to the siteís credit, but when you open a page for a photo set the page loads with some good quality thumbnails so that sucks a lot of bandwidth as it loads. Since the average user will probably be downloading the zip file I wish there was a way to access that zip without having all the thumbnails load. Speaking of downloading photos, for some reason using a download manager (Free Download Manager at least) doesnít work with the photos. It works great with the video sets (with no obvious timeouts) but for the photos I had to download them through the browser which is obviously slower. This was also the same for the Diesel Access sites too so it must be a quirk in how they set up the sites.

I canít speak to the exclusivity of the models, but I am aware that some of them have appeared (and do appear) on other sites, sometimes using different names. This isnít a good or bad thing unless youíre really into exclusivity.

Iím sure that most potential members would find the fact that this site isnít part of a network to be the biggest negative. It does impact on the sense of value that comes with the site. But considering that if this site were added to the Diesel network it would essentially be a free add-on. Porn of this quality canít be cheap to produce and Iím certainly willing to pay for material of this quality.

The models do live shows though I never viewed any of those. I presume (but stand to be corrected) that these are an additional cost. The live shows are recorded and those can be downloaded or streamed too.

This site, like its sister sites, does everything well. The models are stunningly beautiful and the people shooting the videos and photos are clearly professionals. The website provides an effective way to sort and download what you want. There are much bigger names in internet porn who could improve by following this site. I know that potential members might question the siteís value as it grows, but the quality is near perfect and Iíd highly recommend joining.
