- It has to be one of the biggest networks on the internet. If you've never been a member you could probably join it for a year and still be happy with it in month 12.
- You get 13 sites and will list them each in the BL with a quick explanation of each and opinion.
- I try to always buy memberships through TBP and the TBP discount is very good, but DDF's promo emails, for past members, are much cheaper. On the other hand these promos only last 24-48 hours.
- Very professional site with high standards on their technical quality.
- Download speeds are about 90% my max download speed.
- The network as a whole does give you a feeling of "something for everyone".
- Videos over the last 4 years or so are HD, picture sets come zipped.
- You will be hard-pressed to name an Euro model who isn't on the network and many have double digit numbers of sets.
- Navigation is good for a network of this size and there doesn't seem to be as much overlap between sites though there still is some.
- A little thing called time. That mainly applies only to new or newer members. I have kept a DDF folder since 2007 that has all the older content I would want so I mainly am just downloading the newer updates. If you're new to it, go ahead and get you a new external hard drive and name it DDF. I would think it's a bit overwhelming to some.
- DDF sites have typically had a common problem of the occasional download button not working, downloading a file marked as 1280x720 resolution only to find out it's a mobile file, but fast and courteous customer service always fixes it.
- The major deduction for me is that I'm not for sure the network offers that much for frequent past members. While the newer content isn't bad, it has either entered the feeling of, "I've seen this before, just the girl is different" or "Another 18 year old Hungarian model". That's not as negative as it sounds, but it's just a feeling of complacency.
It seems my years of scoring high are starting to catch up with me or I'm just not as impressed as I used to be. If you are new or newer to DDF then you can feel free to add 5-7 points to the score and I would say easily. I'm going to focus on the different sites since DDF Network isn't so much a site as it is sort of a home page or hub to go from site to site.
1ByDay - The flagship site. Myself and many Porn Users spent upwards of $35 per month for this site by itself years ago. It still updates 7 times a week and has nearly a combined 10,000 photo/video sets. I think it's important to mention these photo sets are not screenshots from the videos, they are standalone, professional photo sets. You really could get your money worth just with this site alone.
Hot Legs and Feet - The almost flagship site. I used to be turned away from this site because I thought it was a standard feet/toes type site, but it's really not. It's more like a solo/lesbian/hardcore site that has a feet/leg theme to the scenes. Updates have dropped to 3 per week. Close to 5,000 combined photo/video sets.
DDF Busty - The name says it all. This site has a couple of problems for me. It's not unusual to see overlap from other DDF sites showing up on it. It also updates 3 times per week. Around 3,000 combined photo/video sets.
Only Blowjob - Another self-explanatory one. It updates 3 times per week. And has around 3,000 combined photo/video sets.
House of Taboo - The kinkier side of DDF, though I wouldn't say it's near as kinky as most BDSM/Bondage/Sub/Dom sites I've been on. It updates 3 times per week and has around 1,800 combined video and photo sets.
Hands on Hardcore - Though all the sites before this one have some hardcore on them, this one is just all hardcore. Its updates don't seem to be quite 3 per week, but are close, there are 9 updates for the month of March as of March 31, 2013. It has right at 1,600 combined photo and video sets.
Euro Girls on Girls - Updates once a week, all lesbian, only lesbian content. It has nearly 1,000 combined photo and video sets.
Euro Teen Erotica - Updates once a week, this site could really appeal to some. Seems like it started out as mostly solo and the occasional lesbian scene, but I think they changed the focus and it's now more boy/girl hardcore with teens. It has nearly 700 combined photo and video sets.
Sex Video Casting - A site that could be considered the closest to amateur that DDF goes. Some of these sets don't have anything more than a new model stripping, no masturbation, no sex. Most at least go into something near masturbation. It has a combined 1,200 photo and video sets.
Hairy Twatter - Updates weekly, a site about hairy girls. Not my thing, but it has close to 200 combined video and photo sets.
Cherry Jul - Archive site. It hasn't been updated since 2007, but if you like Cherry, it has a combined 216 photo and video sets.
Eve Angel Official - Archive site. It says it's updating, but I have all these sets. If I'm wrong on this, I will change what I've said, but seeing that I've collected Eve exclusively since 2004, I'm pretty sure these new updates aren't new. Still, there is around 400 combined photo and video sets and if you like Eve, but haven't downloaded this content it's really good and would be worth the price of membership by itself.
Sandy's Fantasies - Archive site. This site hasn't been active for several years, but has some real nice older content of major Euro stars before they became big stars. Right at 300 combined photo and video sets.
I tried approaching this review differently to give a rundown of each site included. I still think this network is a great value considering the photos after 2008 are all available in at least 2000 high end and the videos in HD, Prior to 2009, you're going to get varying qualities and just based on the sheer amount of content there's no way I could break it down into how many have HD, how many have standard DVD resolution, etc.
I would recommend as high as possible for new porn fans, Eve Angel fans who don't have the content from her site, Cherry Jul fans if they still exist, legs/feet fans, soft dom fans, blowjob fans and solo fans. The only sites that I consider disappointing are Euro Girls on Girls and Euro Teen Erotica, but that's just a preference since those are mostly your typical 18 year old skinny models.
As a whole the network offers as much content as you could possibly ask for, however, as someone who has been a member of nearly all the sites when they were standalone sites and also a member of this network 4 times, I don't know that it offers me a whole lot of value. Then again, that's what happens when you have a 1.7 TB folder of DDF content.
I still think an 87 is fair with a +5 for those who don't have a 1.7 TB of DDF content already.

- Fairly large network of 6 solo model sites and 1 multi-model site.
- High quality on nearly all sites.
- Network is an even better value if you like the models that have a high amount of content. I will list amounts of content for each site in the BL.
- Seems to be quite a bit of interaction with the models.
- Download speeds will vary from site to site, but never drops to a bad level.
- Navigation is excellent for a network, it includes and easy to use drop-down box that allows you to move from site to site without the hassle of signing in on each.
- I personally find all of the models attractive.
- No cross-sales on registration and ads are non-existent in members area as well. It's one of those sites that should get some bonus points for clean site design without annoyances.
- There is some, though not a lot, more hardcore scenes on the sites. So it's not all just softcore or just masturbation.
- The webmaster explained in replies of my Bryci review. There are no photo zips. If nothing else, I feel like it should be mentioned since photo collectors will see that as a dealbreaker.
- Download limit has been raised to 12 GB per day and I really don't see it as that bad unless you download the 1920x1080 files. I've somehow found moderation in my downloading over the years and am having no trouble with the download limit.
I did a separate review for the Bryci site which is included in this network. I felt like it was quite a bit better than the other sites and deserved it's own standalone review. First thing I'm going to do is list the numbers for each site. I will count these numbers by using a manual method of X amount of scenes per page multiplied by number of pages. I will use this method of describing them (standard video = masturbation/tease. BTS = Behind the Scenes. Webcam = webcam archive)
Ava Dawn - 32 standard videos, 15 BTS, 4 Webcam, 42 photo sets.
Bella Girlfriends - 7 standard videos, 61 photo sets Bryci - See my separate review. This is by far the largest site in the network. The numbers are for combined types of videos (329) and photo sets (280) candid photo sets (62) Hunter Leigh - 24 photo sets, 0 videos. Katie Banks - standard videos (112), Webcam (127), photo sets (172), candid photo sets (131)
Lexi Mason - standard videos (16), photo sets (28)
Monroe Lee - standard videos (18), webcam (25), photo sets (111). candid photo sets (5) Talia Shepard - standard videos (49), BTS (19), Webcam (112), Photo sets (118), candid photo sets (38).
If you notice one model missing, Renna Ryan, the content was up the first few days I was a member, now the site is giving me a "content not available" message when I sign in. She also is no longer listed in the BellaGirls, so I guess that was just bad timing since it was there just a few days ago.
I bring this up because Renna was an extra selling point for me since I have always liked her. On the other hand, the site was relatively small and the last 6-8 videos were during her pregnancy. Overall, her site was a disappointment so I don't think you're going to miss it much.
If you will also notice, several of the models have more webcam archived videos than anything else. I do like these, but there's no way, short of watching everyone of them to say what percentage is just talking or teasing or masturbation.
I was not familiar with any of these models except the aforementioned Renna Ryan and Talia Shepard. Talia's site is above average, so if you like her it's worth noting that it's one of the bigger sites on the network. I even found a new one I'll be watching for more content of, Ava Dawn, who I wasn't the least bit familiar with.
I went to the oldest videos on each site and it looks like all standard videos have the full selection of video options. I'll list them again:
MP4 - 1920x1080, 1280x720, 640x360
WMV - 1920x1080, 1280x720, 640x360
Flash - 900x506
3GP - 352x288
As I mentioned in the Bryci review, I prefer the Flash ones for the combination of good quality and the files are not overly large. If anyone has trouble playing Flash videos, I use either VLC or Windows Media Classic Home Cinema.
The content mostly follows the same path from site to site. It's mostly softcore teasing and masturbation. I'm not for sure if the hardcore number is high since several of the hardcore scenes I had seen on here were on the Renna Ryan site.
Picture sets have a viewing option of 1500x933 or vice versa and 4000x26xx or vice versa. These pictures are very good, look to be professional shot so without zips, you're going to need to be ready to right click, save as on the ones you like.
The webcam videos are decent quality, look to be in the 360-480p range and are entertaining.
It's worth noting that several of these models, Bryci, Talia especially, have very good personalities and can pull off these 40ish minute webcam shows without a hitch. I still haven't seen a live webcam show, but it's more based on me never having a chance to sit down and watch one, so these archived ones are a nice addition.
As a whole, the network averages over 1 update per day. In the most recent months, there are these numbers.
January 1-28: 39 updates.
December 2012: 47 updates.
November 2012: 39 updates.
So it's an active network as you can see. I will touch on the no zips one last time since I think the Hunter Leigh site shows the downside of no zips. It has no videos, 24 photo sets and no zip downloads. She's a very pretty/cute model, but without anything to download, I probably won't visit it for more than a few views of pictures with nothing left to show for the membership to it.
I do think this network as a whole is good though. It helps that I really like Bryci and Talia Shepard. Having their videos in a high number like the network has offsets the cons. I don't think Renna's site would have helped or hurt the score any since it did look to be relatively small. If memory serves me right it only had 2 pages of videos, 2 of photos and maybe with her pregnancy she didn't want the content posted anymore.
I'm going a bit high on the score based on liking the Bryci site so much. The network is worth a join if you like solo models and especially if you prefer videos.

- Bryci is a sensual, brunette model who excels at posing, teasing and may be the best solo masturbation model I've seen in a few years.
- The site itself is pretty big, but not all scenes are masturbation, quite a few BTS, non-nude talking, will list the numbers in BL.
- Archive has webcam archived videos.
- From what I can see, all videos on the site are available in 1980x1080. Multiple video download options on all videos except webcam archives.
- Download speed is relatively good, but you will occasionally run into a slower moving file. I can max out at 3.8 MB/s, most will download around 3.0 MB/s, but a few were in the 1.6-1.9 MB/s range.
- Pictures are nice, but I had a few problems with them which will be in cons.
- Comes with 7 other similarly themed sites, the size of each greatly varies and I will do a review of the overall network separately to get all the numbers in.
- Price isn't too bad for the quality and especially if you like the models.
- Pictures aren't zipped. This could be a major con to picture lovers since they have very high quality pictures 2662x4000.
- Download limit. Normally this would annoy the hell out of me, but I don't download near as much as I used to. It's listed as 9 GB per day, Webmaster says 10 GB, the most I've downloaded in a day is 5 GB, so I've had no problems with it. And since the terms say no scripts are allowed, I'm guessing you can't use a bulk image downloader for the pictures. It isn't being a problem for me though I thought it should be mentioned. One workaround without breaking the rules is to download the smaller quality videos, which I will get to in the BL.
Bryci has to be considered a serious contender for top solo model. The one negative some will find is she has implants, but I've never minded those either unless they are badly out of proportion. Hers aren't. The site is full of high quality content as well. I'm going to focus this next part on the numbers and qualities available since there is a download limit.
I'm counting 329 video scenes as of 1/27/13. There are 5 types of video scenes. Standard masturbation, Behind the Scenes, teasing, talking, webcam archive. The BTS and talking ones aren't something I'm going to download since there is a download limit, so those can be taken out of the equation. Her teasing scenes are short in length, 4-6 minutes usually, but if the attire she has on it is your thing, these are worth downloading. She has one scene in a white thin dress, in the shower, that is great as well as a workout tease scene that I loved.
The scenes I downloaded were masturbation, some teasing and the webcam archive. There's roughly 110 masturbation and/or tease scenes, it's hard to put a number on the webcam scenes that involve masturbation or nudity without watching them all, but several I've watched do have masturbation in them. It almost looks like Bryci may have started out as a tease type model. The videos date back to January 2009, so that's 4 years of content and plenty of time for her to have evolved from tease to masturbation. Most of the first year of updates are of the tease and BTS variety.
I know there are people who like the talking videos, but I'm sticking with my standard on those, I don't want to pay for a video of a woman answering questions. It seems to be a whole section of "Ask Bryci" videos. There also is an Amazon button so you can buy presents for Bryci, which I've laughed at dating back to Raven Riley. One more time, I pay to see your porn, not to have an option to pay for your gifts.
The video download options do vary since 1/5, maybe 1/4 are webcam, these are in Flash only, but you can download them.
The other videos have:
MP4 1920x1080, 1280x720 and 640x360.
WMV 1920x1080, 1280x720 and 640x360.
As you can see, the downloading options are very good and I personally download the Flash ones since it limits the size of the file, while giving me still good quality. From what I see in the members area you have all these options on all videos except the webcam archives.
The pictures are overall a disappointment. I've always removed points for no zip files and have removed 5 points from this review for it since I think the pictures add a lot to a solo site. I guess it's okay to download one at a time if you want to make you own set, but I would much prefer a zip option to download the whole set. It seems to go into a hollow debate of why have 4000 high end pictures if the members can't download the whole set. While I'm sure there are some who wouldn't want to download an entire set of photos at that high of quality since it would be a fairly big file. I like the option of having the option to download if I want them though.
Navigation is very easy, site design is nice and clean. There also are webcam shows, but I haven't watched any. Each thing you would need from navigation is in a toolbar towards the top of the screen, the only thing I would add is an option to filter out BTS scenes and separate webcam archive, but those are minor complaints since the title of each video says, "BTS" or "Webcam" so you don't have to guess at them.
Where Bryci earns the high score is in her performances. She's quite confident, seems to love teasing and works the camera as well as dare I say, a young Eve Angel. The eye contact with the camera, the "I know you're watching" expressions, is the best I've seen since 2006 Eve Angel. That alone keeps me interested in her content. She also seems to be pretty natural in her poses unlike a lot of Euro glam models. She shows a fun and playful side as well.
You do get access to Bella Pass Network which includes 6 other solo models and one other site that is a multi-model site. I won't go into those since I want to review the network as a whole, separately, but Bryci does seem to be the star of the network.
Bryci's site itself seems to update with video or photos 10 times a month. There also is a blog if you're interested in that and it is very active from what I saw of it. In January alone, there were 11 new entries in the blog.
One last part on the download limit. Downloading Flash files, I downloaded 12 videos earlier for a total of 2 GB. So considering I don't want the BTS or talking videos, I should be able to get most of the scenes I want without breaking the download limit.
Overall, download limits and no picture zips, notwithstanding, I would highly recommend it to solo fans.

- The last of the Kink sites on my list to join, Kink's sites, generally speaking are very high quality and are just different enough from the norm to keep most of us from getting bored.
- It's a site about butts, my favorite part of the female, below the neck and they have some of the best butts in porn on here.
- As usual, Kink will do something in at least one or sometimes 20 scenes, that challenges our morality as viewers. I call it pro since I feel like this is done in a safe, controlled, consensual environment and it works to break our boredom with traditional porn, push our limits, etc..
- You get good download speeds here.
- Navigation is as all other Kink sites. I think it's a bit clunky, but if you join enough Kink sites, you start to get the hang of it or you just speed up your mouse scroll wheel.
- Videos have up to 1280x720 resolution and are nice and clear. If a bit dark thanks to setting.
- One update per week is a borderline pro/con.
- As mentioned in pros, Kink will push your boundaries, they do so on this site with enemas, for me.
- Pictures would have been really good for this site since they could showcase the butts/thighs, and they have them, but I'm nearing Kink burnout on downloading 4-6 zips to get one photoset.
- Maybe more than any of the Kink sites, this one seemed to border on formulaic for me. It could be the Kink burnout, it could just be that most scenes seemed like the same thing. Reminds me a lot of the now dead Give Me Pink site and to a lesser extent, In the Crack.
I had found myself in a porn rut a few months ago and decided to start trying these Kink sites in succession. I can't recommend a studio higher than Kink when it comes to pushing boundaries...tastefully. I know there are sites that are more hardcore than these, but I don't know if any focus so much on the model as these. Many rely on the male to make the scenes more violent. Kink does seem to let the models work at their own pace.
The quality is here is like any of the new(er) Kink sites. The videos have the 1280x720 option, there is also a 720x480 option, these come in either WMV or MP4 depending on your choosing. I don't want to go too deep into the pictures, but will say this, if you're a picture fan, you most likely won't be happy. Since I've written multiple reviews on Kink sites, I don't want to waste a lot of space on saying the same things I have before. Plain and simple, you can download 20-25 pictures in a zip, 4-6 of these zips per set, just like it was in 1999 or 2000. I downloaded a total of 8 total photo sets, so they're bordering on "why even post them?" I took points off ATK and other sites, over 4 years ago, for doing it. It's unacceptable in almost 2013.
The scenes themselves should be a big selling point to me. I like butts, thighs, and not just curvy, but any that are not toothpick thin or to the point of cottage cheese nightmares. Everything in between those are good.
My first problem was expected. Enemas are just a flat-out no to me. I remember years ago on here, both Denner and I, talking about Give Me Pink having girls shoot milk out of their butt. That was the line this site crossed for me. I still don't like gape videos that much either. There's plenty of gape here. So much in fact, I think a small nation could find their new home. Neither of these are huge complaints, but I am trying to show the extreme the site goes to, for those considering it as a possible join. You sometimes get the feeling the women are in a dare contest, "I can get a stick, a pool cue and a bat in my butt".
This is simply a problem for me because I like the butt. The curves of it. The silhouette of it a shadow. If you're into the extreme insertions and projectile shooting, you will like this site. Nothing wrong with it if you do. That part just isn't for me.
The good part, they do have the less extreme sets. You get a lot of good lesbian strap-on action and I've never had a problem with women being rough with women. I find it erotic even. The models here are more to my liking than some of the Kink sites. You will see a lot more curvy models here than they typically have.
The site has a pretty good sized collection. I'm counting 217 scenes as of 12/11/12. While this a good-sized collection for unique content like this site has, when I figure in the sets I wasn't even considering, it goes down quite a bit and was what caused me to lower the score some. I typed these out in notepad as I was looking through the site for sets I was interested in.
My counts could be off 1-2.
At least 42 scenes involved enemas.
At least 12-15 more involved instruments that are either gynecological, or look gynecological.
So roughly 1/4 of the scenes didn't appeal to me right from the start. If those scenes would appeal to you, then add another 5 points to the score. I found my boundary there.
The rest of it, to the dismay of some, the delight of others, is more straightforward, rough anal sex, be it with a woman or man or group. There's fisting, there's lesbianism, and I mostly enjoyed these scenes. I'm on the indifferent boat when it comes to fisting.
What it adds up to, if the pictures were easy to download in one zip and the enema/gynecological scenes aren't counted, the site would have scored 94 for me, but because it only updates once a week, there's no telling if 3 of my 4 monthly updates will be in the don't appeal or appeal group, so I can't just say "look over" those scenes.
The models save it for me. The regular Kink girls are around, Isis Love, Skin Diamond, Vicki Chase, would love to see more Kelly Divine and Francesca Le. It leaves me feeling the same way as i have about the other Kink sites. By the 30th day of my membership, I'm usually thinking "time to move on to another niche". It definitely teeters on repetitive, but I don't think that would sit in for those who only join for a month at a time. Way too many puns in this.
I would recommend it most for fans of In the Crack and Give Me Pink. The one big difference, both of those sites excel or excelled in Give Me Pink's case, at high quality photos too. Some of this action is better watched in a still photograph than in real-time movement.
It definitely is good for breaking the monotony of mainstream porn. I would recommend it to most people. One other note is the ass-worship, I do like these and first saw this type of porn on Evil Angel, so if you're a fan of those there is something here for you too.

- A long-running site that is a good place to start as a porn collector.
- 1920x1080 on the videos over the last 3 years
- Pictures come zipped
- Weekly update could be considered a con
- They do continuously get amateur models in their first or at least close to their first shoots
- Good download speeds, around 90% of my max download speed.
- My biggest gripe is with the pictures. I never understood the purpose of having a "superpic" section where the webmaster decides to put 3000 high end and 4000 high end zips for his favorite sets. These are not that often and the vast majority of sets are only 1600 high end.
- Has been in a slow decline, could be because I've joined it once or twice a year, will further in BL.
- That one weekly update just isn't enough and will further this as well.
- No real reason to complain about it since they do separate the videos into parts based on the action, but it's becoming a con to me not to be able to download full scenes.
FTV has had its really strong years. If you've never joined the site would score higher than I'm scoring it, but I just can't give it a higher score based on my most recent join.
I'll start by saying I had everything I wanted from the site up until March 2011's updates. I have always liked their style of photography and most of the videos as well and have kept those on an external. I probably wouldn't have rejoined if not for a promo that dropped the price nearly in half. Even then, as a returning member, I'm not for sure I feel like I got my money's worth. For this whole membership, I downloaded and will keep:
14 models, videos and pictures.
I'm sure the everyone has different tastes rule applies here, but only 14 models appealing to me out of 70-75 since my last membership just isn't good, at least not for me. In comparison, I have over 200 FTV models, so you can see how it has declined for me. I would normally find 30-40 per year I liked, this time it was 14 in 20 months.
It's possible it could be more than just the model's not appealing to me. The scenes, similar to how they have always been, have several videos for each model being more playful and acting silly than being nude. Maybe I'm just getting older and find those more irritating than cute? So you can decide on that one. If you like that style of porn you can disregard my negativity towards it.
The picture size is a no longer an excuse situation. Saying we're going to post 3000 or 4000 high end resolution photos on our (FTV) favorite sets and make the other 90% or higher only 1600 high end is unacceptable to me. You're catering to members not your own taste or maybe I'm wrong on that.
What this equals for me is a site that isn't appealing to me with as many models. Then you just get one update per week with a 1/5 chance I'm going to even like that model, only 4 updates per month, so my 1/5 chance isn't looking so good. A premium price if you join it without a promo, only to find out you only get the highest resolution photos for the sets they pick to do those high resolution ones on. Videos broken up into parts and the scroll like mad navigation, all of which are minor problems by themselves, but when added together make for a big problem. Something has to give. Either the price goes down or more updates or added or you give full scene downloads or you give 3000x4000 resolution pictures on all sets. Or be daring, give them all for the premium price and I won't bitch about the price.
Having said all this, I won't throw FTV completely under the bus, so to speak. They have their strengths. You will see pornstars you know of, but most of their sets were shot early in the model's career. You do get to see a different side of the models than on nearly all other sites. And when they do it, you get some of the best exhibitionism content available. If you've never joined it, I would give it one of my highest recommendations for a first time membership. You also will see some models you've never seen before and probably won't see them ever again. The video quality is as crystal clear in 1920x1080 as any 1080p porn videos I've seen. I think that just hurts the lower resolution photos since it's obvious they have the ability to shoot extremely high quality video. And the superpics section ends up becoming more of a poke from them to say, "we could be giving you these resolution photos on every set". May not be their intentions, but it sure seems that way.
I also don't care for the girl/girl content which has become more common. This just goes into a whole feeling of, there are lesbian sex sites out there that do it better. I didn't list this in cons though since it's no worse than having a pretty girl do cartwheels for 5 minutes. I do get the feeling and have had the feeling before that as a member, you're going to get content based on what the webmaster likes or has fetishes for and still feel that way. I would like to see more variation in the models too. There has never been a maximum age limit on the models and they used to shoot more mid to late 20s models. It now seems like a purely teen site in the newer updates.
As I'm leading to recommending it, there has to be some stipulations added here. If you've never been a member or have only been a member once or twice, it's still a definite join and recommendation. If you're like me and have the majority of the archive and are only missing the last year or so, look at the previews and decide if enough of the models would appeal to you. I should have, but I was shocked to find a promo through, I think Twistys, that I just jumped on the deal before checking out the newer updates. I'm running out of room, but will add a comment about what seems to be a slightly different version of their site, not for sure if it's a mobile version or if it's a new format since the promo I used sent me to it instead of the regular site.
Was a member approx. 2 months prior to this review.
- Female domination of men. I don't know if it always includes the extra site, but when I joined it included Men in Pain.
- Unlike the last Kink site I reviewed (Public Disgrace), Divine Bitches and the added Men in Pain, combine for a very large collection. Large collection does have downfalls, will explain in BL.
- Divine Bitches has the full options on videos with HD being offered on close to 90% of all videos.
- I'm only putting pictures here because they do have them. The quality of them and how they are downloaded are cons.
- There seems to be varying degrees of femdom that this site showcases. Some of it is particularly interesting to me as someone with a past in psychology, other parts will turn a lot off, though I wasn't bothered by any of it. Will explain in BL.
- I like how Kink uses models who are mostly unknown or better yet, more exclusive to their sites, but as with anything it can be repetitive.
- Weekly update on Divine Bitches, no updates on Men in Pain.
- I'll start with the main one. I knew going in that there was cuckold scenes. If you are offended by gay acts, you probably shouldn't join this site. I will further this in BL.
- The pictures are downloadable only in part zips. The quality of them is only 1280x720.
- This was talked about in my comment for this site in the replies, these men who the women are dominating, are mostly effeminate. It does take away most of the believability.
This was probably the most far-reaching porn experience for me. I have talked about my interest in the lighter side of cuckold. This is seen most in the DVDs like "Please Screw My Wife". With a long interest in the power/control aspects of sex, this genre at least interested me. I don't want this to turn into a lecture on psychological theory, but I'm on the side of humans who believes sex is most enjoyed when it's more lust than love. I also buy into the belief that there's a very thin line between love and hate, anger and joy and each of these represents a very strong emotion.
Men in Pain is a bonus site, but I'm guessing by looking at the update dates, Divine Bitches just became Men in Pain v.2. The Men in Pain site is mostly scenes with typical physical control games being played by the women. This site wouldn't interest me very much, but it is a nice bonus since you will see some more mainstream female models being very aggressive, which is rare for them. One that comes to mind is Jasmine Byrne. I always saw her as the pretty, little glamor model who went into submissive hardcore porn. Also can get some older scenes of Isis Love back when she was blonde and pre-implants. Outside of that though, Men in Pain, is of very little interest. I'm not exactly in position to fantasize about a small woman dominating me physically. I can see that now. Jasmine slapping me if she could reach my face, me saying, "aww that's cute". Sorry for the humor.
Divine Bitches is a whole other experience. This goes into mental and emotional pain. It has plenty of physical pain too, but it isn't limited to it. What you end up getting are scenes like this, woman tells her best female friend about her jerk husband. Female friend finds a big, tough guy and they go over to the woman's house. They force the husband to watch as his wife has sex with the other man.
Then they took it to a new level. Not only is the husband being forced to watch his wife have sex with another man, he's being forced to stick his face within inches of the penetration. His wife is saying things like compliments to the new man on his size and how her husband doesn't compare. We're getting deep here.
Then they took it to a new level. Not only is the man facing all the things in the above paragraph, but he's having to take the cumshot from the other man, giving the other man oral, in between pumps of his wife. This was a line to me.
It wasn't a line because it went too far. It became more obvious at that last level, the men being forced were bisexual or gay. I'm in no way trying to be an asshole about this, but the husband walks in the scene in a dress suit and tie. He has a masculine look. Then as soon as it comes time for him to do something labeled as "gay" he arches his back and becomes feminine. You lose me there.
This also applies to the scenes with just a male and female. Some of these men look to be lubing themselves up for a strap-on from their woman. Whether this goes into a gay act or not isn't the point. The point is it's about domination! The willing being dominated is not domination. Simple as that.
Overall, the site is good. The storylines are believable and even enjoyable in a distorted way. Like with other Kink sites, I do think you have to bring your imagination with you because of the fine line between what would be accepted and what would be going to far. For example, would having a real husband and wife in a scene, with the real straight male being forced to give a man a blowjob, be going into breaking laws? Keep the imagination handy and if you do, it's a good, very different site that might touch some emotions in you. And I'll give them a lot of credit for being risky and pushing boundaries, even if my imagination is still required.
The quality on the videos is pretty simple. Everything on Divine Bitches has up to HD except maybe 10 scenes. Each scene has smaller versions as well. With Men in Pain, you're going to be all over the place in quality. I downloaded one that was highest mp4 and it was 340x280. Did another and it was 720x480. Photo and navigation problems are the same as other Kink sites. No full photo zip download. Model list takes you to a network wide listing of each model and even if you have a membership to a site a scene is on, it tries to get you to sign up for the site or use pay on demand kinks, so it's useless. The best way to navigate the Kink sites is scroll, scroll, scroll.
These negatives are still fairly small and not enough to take away much from the site's overall grade. I do think for those who like to see women in dominant roles, it does the job. I could nitpick and say if the men were more masculine or even put up the least bit of resistance, but you do get the feeling the type of domination they are going for is the woman saying, "If you want me you will do what I say" and they do that well.
Another very good site from Kink that is recommended for those who are into this genre.

- It's public sex that sometimes isn't really public, that other times is very kinky.
- As with every Kink site I've been a member on there are high quality photos and videos and plenty of imagination with each scene.
- Navigation issues aren't too bad here since I had never been a member of the site and just scrolled through the updates, making it quite easy to navigate.
- European sets seem to really push the public limit with sex on streets and in barely hidden places that the viewer can still see the society functioning around. Will go further in BL.
- Models can be hit or miss for me. The older European sets had more models I am familiar with, but the newer sets, mostly shot around or in the Kink armory have models I'm not as familiar with. One thing that keeps this in the pros are the appearances of Isis Love in several scenes, though not listed in the model credits.
- Download speed is always above average on Kink sites
- Scenes in America may push the limit of misleading advertising. I'm not of this belief, but the comment section of the newer American scenes have 20% comments complaining that they are not public, will further in BL.
- I'm beating, maybe flogging would be a better word since it's Kink, the dead horse when I complain about the photo sets being broken up into parts, but I feel it's important for potential members to know.
- While the site is plenty large enough, considering the complexity of the scenes, I don't know if it offers much for multi-month memberships or for many return visits. Numbers in BL.
This site had been one on my list to join. The last 4 sites I have joined are Kink sites. My overall impression of this site is good, but at times, I was either thinking things went too far or things were way too protected.
With any exhibitionism or voyeur site, I do need at least some believability. I have enough of an imagination to make most scenes believable. Having said that, I know a lot of porn viewers don't. The members comments on Public Disgrace use words like "false advertising" and "bait and switch" and these are not just 1 or 2 comments, but maybe 5-10 on some scenes. This is my feeling on it.
In the earlier scenes on this site, starting in 2008, it was more of an exhibitionism site than disgrace site. These scenes included recording the male and female models having sex in subway steps as traffic and people walked by. It included sex by the road as traffic went by. From what I can tell by the license plates on the cars it was nearly all shot in Europe. There are complaints about "where is the disgrace?" They do have some scenes that go into bondage in public places, but the majority of the scenes that are outside in Europe are much more regular sex as described earlier in this paragraph. The scenes take on a decided turn to filming in and around the Kink armory in San Francisco. They bring in a crowd to watch, these rarely go into the exhibitionism like the European scenes did since it's a controlled crowd and controlled environment, but these do bring in more disgrace than the European scenes.
How disgraceful? I'm sure it's subjective. There is writing on the model's body, "I'm a slut", "Whore" to dumping food on the model to heavy bondage. These scenes remind me more of Sex and Submission type scenes. Where you as a member have to choose is if you prefer the more public, less disgrace scenes or less public, more disgrace scenes. Only a small amount of the scenes really do both. I do understand and respect the possible laws they had to be concerned about breaking so I'm not really against either side, but I do prefer the more public, less disgrace.
Overall the site is pretty big considering the niche and complexity of each scene, however, it only updates once a week.
As of 11/7/2012 there are a total of 209 scenes. These scenes include photos and video. The videos are quite long ranging from 45 minutes to 90 minutes. The photos are split into parts on the zips.
If you're big on technical quality, this site delivers. These are the video options.
Smaller Screen is 640x360 in MP4 format
Most compatible is 960x540 in WMV format
Windows Media HD is 1280x720 in WMV format
Highest Quality MP4 is 1280x720 in H264 MP4 format
All 209 scenes have those options.
Navigation is pretty limited, but with 209 scenes, you can just scroll through pages of 14 scenes per page. It doesn't do much good to use the model search since it takes you to all the model's scenes on their family of sites, most of which, you won't have a membership to.
As mentioned earlier you get one new scene per week. With the newer scenes turning more to the disgrace side, this could be a problem for me with future joins. I don't want to say all of the American scenes are bad though. Quite a few are in more public places than the Kink armory and as long as they work the crowd into it, whether a controlled crowd or environment or not, I will still like those scenes.
Where they lose me is in the disgrace part. I don't mind bondage, but we saw a bunch of immature sites years ago try the writing on the model's bodies angle and it failed miserably for them. I don't think it's that I'm offended as much as it is that I expect more from Kink than this. I would think anytime you're dealing with a niche like disgrace there are lines that go into "That's not disgrace, it's just silly". On the other side, I wouldn't want them to truly go into disgracing the models either since I'm not even for sure how far that would have to go. The last side of it is I don't ever hold a site to stick directly with their name since the amount of urls available isn't that large and I don't know if I would ever want to be on a site that never changes.
I enjoyed the site though. It's different enough from the mainstream to keep my attention on it. I would like to see more public exhibitionism, but more than that, just enough to give my imagination something to work with. The body writing makes my imagination want to get a washcloth and soap to wash it off. Not exactly the point of joining a porn website.
I would recommend it to most anyone. The disgrace is if anything silly and playful. The models are pretty and some have never been seen. I just don't think if you're really into disgrace you're going to get it here and outside of the Euro scenes, I don't think you're going to truly get a lot of public sex unless you're able to tap into your imagination some. The one admittedly biased part is Isis Love being in some of the newer scenes.

- Huge DVD studio site
- It's maybe not as extreme as some will think, which is what led me to give it a try.
- Hard to get an exact number, but HD DVDs have been coming in for around 2-3 years.
- Navigation is good considering the site's size, but still could use a tweak or two.
- Lots of variety from traditional one on one sex to group sex orgies to the land of extreme with extreme anal and transsexuals.
- Very enjoyable DVD series Voracious. I would say it's the best continuing series I've seen on a porn site though there really isn't a lot of competition.
- Download speeds are good and you can download 6 files at a time while still browsing the site.
- Interesting and unique marketing style. If you swing by the site they often run promos no one would expect like Canadian Thanksgiving 50% off.
- Will even give them credit for being one of the few sites I have seen that has a cross-sale, but it's unmarked. Though I would still keep my eye on it.
- Lowest big option is 480p
- This is probably my biggest complaint. I wish the search engine had a little box for me to search from. Their search capabilities are probably enough for anyone, but having that box to search directly would be nice. Will further this in BL.
- It's a DVD site, not supposed to expect pictures, but they do have pictures for most of their DVDs and you know it, no zips. This is fairly minor on this site since some of the photo sets only have 15-20 pictures, but it would be a nice touch.
- Non-descriptive filenames, which also goes into con #1.
- Piece by piece updates
The first con should be perception. I have joined or added the Evil Angel channel on Videobox for a couple years, but would only add it to get the scenes of my favorite models. I was under the belief their content was too hard, in general, for me to join their own studio site. I received a very cheap promo several months ago, took a shot and have ended up sticking around for nearly 4 months. I should add here that I haven't been able to download as much as I used to or the time I needed to download everything I wanted may have been lower. Still, the content was good enough that I wanted to keep downloading for 4 months so that should say something for the studio.
The negatives aren't very big. My main complaint with the site is not having a search box. In defense of the site, they give you these options to search from. A full model list that lists all scenes by each model. Thirty or so tags that take you to a specified niche. A drop-down box that lets you search by DVD series name, so if you download "Rocco Loves Cougars #8" (most likely not a real series), you can find which other DVDs they have in that series since you downloaded volume 8. These search tools are going to be enough for the vast majority of users, but when combined with filenames that follow this style 10007_03_HD, it can be a problem if you forget which volume of a series you have already downloaded.
I ran into the above problem when I was away from the site for 4 days. I had forgotten not only my last downloaded file, but also the series name. I could remember one word from the title name of the series, but had no search box to put that one word in to narrow down the series'. Instead, it was open the drop-down box and trust my eyes to find the one word I remembered out of 100 or more series names. While this is all fairly minor it still looks like a minor amount of work for a programmer to make what would have been a major difference.
The update style also caused me to knock a point or two off the score. They update regularly, daily, but they split their DVDs up by scene. And if you have bad luck, you'll be like me. One day before my membership expired a new DVD was posted with one of my favorite models. Her scene was scene #3 on the DVD. Which meant her scene wouldn't be available to download until 2 days after my membership ran out. I don't know if just releasing a new DVD, in full, per week would be enough to satisfy the average porn consumers desire for daily updates or not.
The good far outweighs those negatives though. The overall numbers don't compare to a Videobox or Videosz, but the overall quality of the scenes does and surpasses them. The total number of DVDs they have is nearing 1,300 and total scenes in nearing 8,000. I believe the video sites listed in this paragraph are both over 11,000 DVDs at this time, but a quick look at my folders says this: Videobox: 868 GB Videosz: 565 GB Evil Angel: 1.1 TB
The Evil Angel number is much more impressive if you consider I have only been a member this year. I have probably had 10+ memberships to Videobox and the majority of that kept content is from the Vivid channel.
Maybe the thing that makes Evil Angel stand out to me is the variety. While I'm not a huge fan of extreme hardcore, if you get bored with same ol', same ol', they have plenty of extreme hardcore to break the monotony. When you've watched enough gaping, spitting, rough sex, you can go back and find the more mainstream, traditional scenes. To me, this goes back to my assumption of all their content being extreme. Once I was a member, I could see that they have a lot of less extreme DVDs.
It's kind of like they are covering all niches so you can most likely always find something to match whatever mood you are in. The Voracious series is worth mentioning since I was pretty hard on Sex Art on their ongoing series Kamikaze Love. Voracious, like Kamikaze Love is sort of like watching a cable series after dark, but unlike Kamikaze Love, it goes well into the XXX land. The acting performances are still mostly laughable, but if I was here for acting performance I would be watching Tom Hanks or Morgan Freeman movies.
I do think the harder scenes will push some potential members away, but I didn't see anything that hardcore or violent or disgusting. Maybe their hardest scenes are sitting on the border of "we're almost going too far, but not quite". All niches are covered except for gay, but there are transsexual scenes. And if you like the more imagination needed scenes, Buttman has compilations that focus on strip, spandex, feet, butts, etc...
These scenes, I'm pretty sure are just cut from whole scenes, but if you're just wanting a certain part, they've saved you the work of having to go through the full scenes to find it.
A few tweaks here and there would have pushed this site in the 95 range. Picture zips alone may have. Definite recommend, especially for DVD fans who want some variety.

- Met Art going hardcore, kind of, maybe.
- As would be expected, the pictures are excellent quality, but there are some sets with excessive blur, also happens on Met sometimes.
- The videos are romantic takes on sex. Not for sure if I should have put that in the cons or pros. Will further in BL.
- The models are all attractive and especially so if you like the slimmer build models.
- Very good DL speeds.
- Original themed series scenes.
- Navigation is good, but I'm going to guess it's just because the site isn't that big yet. I expect this navigation will be a real pain in the ass in a few years.
- Videos and picture sets combined have at least 1 update per day on average.
- Careful what you wish for. Normal sex doesn't always translate into erotic.
- I honestly have trouble keeping up with, figuring out the different series'. Will further this too in BL.
- 2 months as a member and I will be keeping 4 videos and all of the photo sets. Pretty much the same pattern I have on Met-Art.
- Model variety would be a major plus. Pretty, white and slim is good, but it sure gets repetitive.
- Passion is "eh" believable.
I was one of the ones with very high expectations on this site and was lucky enough to get the first promo they sent out which gave 2 months access for $19.95. I don't feel ripped off at all, but as my previous comment said, I don't get it.
It's probably the last thing Met-Art wants to hear, but I prefer the photos to videos on Sex Art. I'm going to try and break the site down into sections so it's clear.
They have your basic video scenes. Just like Met, they give each scene a name so this can be a bit confusing when you add in the scenes that make up a series.
There are 60 of these as of 9/14/2012. The types of scenes:
Girl/girl or all girl: 23
The rest are solo.
My first problem. As you can see, the boy/girl group is the smallest of the three. When I hear hardcore, I still consider it boy/girl. Second problem, some of this goes into a realm of artsy that I couldn't imagine being interested in. The two examples off the top of my head, a man and woman full body-painted like tigers, having sex in a jungle themed room. One with the women in "chrome" from head to toe. You lost me at nude sex covered with paint and chrome.
Second group of scenes are in the series "Girls Love Sex". And just to keep it under some theme, there are 20 scenes in each season. Yep seasons. Like a television show. They have finished season 1 and 2, but season 3 hasn't started. So there are 40 scenes here. Now don't expect these to be much about sex. It's different models talking, some teasing and very light masturbation. Most of these scenes are less than 5 minutes.
Problem here? Watched 10 and swore to never download one again. These remind me more of Behind the Scenes sets on other sites, just repackaged as it might be porn.
Should be noted, August season is listed as "coming soon August". It's mid-September and there's nothing new.
Third group is Kamikaze Love, which is a full movie or a continuous series, hell I don't know, but I do know it says "New episodes every week" but there hasn't been a new scene added in this section since July.
This is a problem to me because I've got two sections of scenes that aren't updating, so I don't know if they just tanked the ideas or what. Either way the Girls Love Sex and Kamikaze Love are both disappointing to me.
So back to the main section of scenes. These scenes are okay. If you like the softer hardcore, you might be into these, but it's all a little too lovey dovey for my taste in porn. I'm all for passion and cutting back on the abusive scenes, but most of this just jumped to the opposite pole of the abusive porn.
The pictures, just like with Met-Art, are the best part. You get three sizes of zips to choose from. I'm basing these numbers off the newest photo set added, 1024x683 (small) 2048x1365 (medium) and 5616x3714 (large).
The videos are HD with decent bitrate and are relatively short in duration, so the files at least aren't huge. The ones I have watched are nice and clear.
It just seems to be trying to be too many different things. Like the old saying, jack of all trades, master of none. I thought for sure there was going to be something kinky in the Girls Love Sex series since some of the titles go into bondage subjects, but it was just the model talking about bondage.
I was expecting something groundbreaking, but I hate saying this, two women or three women being passionate with each other isn't new. The top Euro sites (21Sextury, DDF, Viv Thomas, Sapphic Erotica) have been filming passionate girl/girl scenes and solo scenes for years. This leaves Sex Art with less than 20 of the more rare, but not unheard of passionate boy/girl scenes. These scenes make up 1/5 of their current total videos. Is it possible that Met overhyped this site and built too high of expectations? Sure.
I have 4 close female friends, who are open to porn, but they say they despise the very hardcore scenes on many sites. After watching a few of the scenes from Sex Art, they all, not one, but all four said something to the effect of "It's too soft". I was just making sure I wasn't being a pig. A few of the scenes are really good.
I have no idea why the solo scenes are on here. The models on here aren't noted as top solo models, though Malena Morgan does a good job in her scenes. I don't know, maybe they should consider older female models? I don't remember 18-22 year old girls being very sensual. I also think they could work on the male talent. The most recent male is so effeminate, I had to look at the pictures to make sure it wasn't another girl/girl scene. You're not reinventing the wheel by having obviously sensitive, passionate people have sensitive, passionate sex.
I'll try it again in a year or two and give the 80 as a benefit of the doubt since it's Met, but also notice the numbers, the amount of no longer updating sections and decide if the photos and small amount of boy/girl scenes are enough to warrant a subscription.

- Women wrestling, clothed, partially clothed and nude. One of Kink's oldest sites.
- Has more content than I'll ever get to.
- Tag team live matches in front of a crowd are some of my favorite scenes in all of pornland.
- Working Isis Love in as ref and extra strap-on is a great idea. I could just watch her walk around.
- Scripted and non-scripted are very subjective words, but I will give them credit for being the most physical of the wrestling sites.
- Nice photo sets, but see the cons and BL for more on this.
- Download speeds are usually extremely good, but there was one day of 1/20th regular download speed and just today the site had a few maintenance issues.
- Dragon Lily. It's not just a site with her on it, but she's a real star here. One of the sexiest, curvy, Asian/Pacific Islander models I've ever seen.
- Get a discount to most of their other sites while a member, believe it's $19.95 on each one you add.
- Site design. This doesn't just apply to Ultimate Surrender, but most of the Kink sites I've been on. Have a membership to two right now and both suffer from the same problems.
- Trying to find a balance. I've competed in martial arts, Greco Roman wrestling and mixed martial arts. Dragon Lily really stands out here because she seems to be very skilled in grappling and flexibility. The combination of athleticism and sexy is perfect with her. A lot of the matches end up being more like foreplay for a lesbian porn scene.
- And those mutli-zip photo sets. There is a reason and defined reason for this, round 1, round 2, round 3, round 4, but each one is only 10-20 MB and requires multiple clicks to download each. I have a round downloaded before I can get back and start another round's zips downloading.
I like Kink sites as a diversion for me. I've almost always liked only glam sites, solo sites, but Kink has me convinced they are "good guys" when it comes to hard, dominating sex and they are perfect for me when I start getting bored with the softer porn.
I do stay frustrated with the site design and the way the photo zips work. Kink does listen so I'm hoping they at least will consider this. To download one match's photos you have to go through this process, click on photos, click on which round, there are 4 rounds in each match, click on download zip, back click, click on round 2, click download, back click, click on round 3, click on download, back click, click on round 4, click download, back click. That's 12 clicks to get one full match's photos. If I'm wrong for complaining about that have Dragon Lily and Isis Love punish me!
This click-a-thon does make the photo sets less appealing to me. Maybe put a full set download link? Or how about even a little zip icon beside each round? Full set would allow one click downloading. Zip icon beside each would be 4 clicks. I could put up with 4, but 12 is just frustrating. Though not applying directly to this site, I've also seen other Kink sites using this multiple click per photo set download.
The site itself is believable to a point. Some of the girls look like they are giving their all to win a match, others look like they just want to lose and have sex. Dragon Lily, Isis Love are both very competitive in it and both are also funny. Sorry Lily, but you telling a woman, "You cannot cum yet" is funny to me and strangely, kind of cute.
The live matches are the standouts. These do seem to be a little less realistic from a competitive view, because they allow double teams, which are always fun. I won't criticize the site for being scripted though. Girls do get injured. Some matches stopped because of injury even.
Where the site succeeds the most. Quality, quantity and hard lesbian sex. I have always had problems watching the harder boy/girl scenes with slapping, but it's pretty hot when it's two sweating, naked women. I do now understand the scoring better than I did on my last review of this site and can see how they are trying to create a real athletic competition with erotic additions.
Video quality can be varied and confusing, which goes back to site design. These are the options on newer ones, Most Compatible (wmv), Highest Quality HD (mp4), Smaller Screens iPod, iPad (mp4), Windows Media HD (wmv). Some of the times, I have downloaded the most compatible option and gotten mid level wmv files in the 720x480 range. So I finally just selected Highest Quality mp4 and it will remember that from scene to scene, but because the site has so much content on it, some of the scenes highest quality mp4 is 640x360. That can be frustrating since on those, the wmv is usually 720x480. It would probably be way too much of a pain to list the resolution beside of each, but it should be mentioned since you have to check each file to see if you got the best quality one available for that scene.
Search could be improved. If you go to "All Seasons" there are 8 listed previous seasons, but they have started season 10. Most of all though, I would love to see an option to just select the live scenes, but it's not here unless I'm overlooking something. I instead go through the updates looking for ones I can see a crowd in. Sounds easy enough, but each page only lists 7 shoots and the live ones are released by round, so you have to dig even more to find the full live scenes and if you want the pictures to those, it's back to looking for each round. Why the full scene video download doesn't have a full scene photo zip download doesn't make much sense.
The Kink sites I have been on all have these different problems with photo sets being split up to maybe tell a story or make sure if you're not OCDC, you will be. The design and frustration has lowered my score from a 90 a few years ago, but if you're not interested in the photos, the score would be in the lower 90s.
Using my most basic method of figuring up how much content, I'm going to multiply the number of pages of updates multiplied by how many scenes per page. There are 84 pages of updates, 7 scenes per page, so that's 588, but the live ones are split, so the number isn't that high. The site has updates dating back to 2004, they update every week.
The live scenes are what brings me back though. Having Isis being more active as a ref, joining in the sex part has really helped the site. Her performance as an unknowing spectator in one live scene is my personal favorite scene of my porn collection.
It's different, it's the hardest lesbian content I've found and it even has some genuine laughs in it. Once you get beyond the site design problems and search issues, you have one of the most original sites on the internet. Recommended to those who are looking for something different and lesbian fans.
Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
- Very high quality, niche heavy site.
- High percentage of pretty models.
- Lots of download options (on newer scenes), newer videos go up to 1280x720 resolution. Newer photo sets top out at 1600 high end and come zipped.
- Navigation is a little harder than it should be at first. Once you figure it out, it's very easy.
- Could be a con, setting is the same in every scene. Though the room is actually quite pretty and easy on the eyes with its colors.
- Could also be a con. Every scene is of a firm, young woman being massaged then sex. Could be a con for those who bore easily.
- I was a little frustrated with the video options. There are some videos with multiple quality options, others with just one, including some newer ones that only have the "ultra HD" option which is usually near 1 GB in size. Also have scenes that are showing unusual resolutions. Will further in BL.
- Nearly every model is slim. I put this because I know there are others who at least like some variety in model shape and size.
- Site is pretty small since "bonus" sites only allowed me to stream.
- Biggest con for me is that the site/scenes lacks much personality. In a one month membership, I did download 27 models, but according to their folder stats, all were done on 3 separate days and what is "hard" about it?
I'm approaching this review similar to how I did Teen Mega World. Outside of a few exceptions, nearly all the models here are slim. I know it's probably implied by the 18 in the name of the site, but then again, there's not a lot of "hard" sex here so you get my point. It looks like from the set ratings the more built models are very popular with members. So it surprises me they don't try to get more built models in.
I don't have too much of a problem with formulaic, but the content here is very formulaic, to the point of most of the scenes being predictable right down to the point of being able to guess (within a few minutes) when the massage stops and the sex starts. As with any site with young models, this leads to the model needing to elevate the scene which as we know can be a problem. Some seem really bored. I don't like porn where the male becomes a major part of the dialogue, but neither the male or female do much talking. Not for sure if they're going for a voyeur feel for the viewer, which is possible since the newer scenes have added a "shower" video of each model washing off after the scene. I think it would be even better if they focused on the stripping of the model instead of trying to make the model look nervous and cautious. That's the idea, maybe a scene or two of the model seducing the masseuse into doing more than a massage? Seems like the storylines with this niche are nearly unlimited, woman mad at boyfriend/husband goes to get massage and ends up cheating, seduction, etc...
For some, I would think the biggest complaint is that there isn't anything here that made me think "That's really hard sex". Maybe I should stay away from the Kink sites, but on a 10 scale, I would rate the hardness of these scenes at 5 or below.
The good parts, the models are all very pretty. They are mostly firm and end up oiled, which is always a good thing. I shouldn't say there are only slim models, since I did find 27 attractive enough to download and keep, but the curvier models really do stand out here like Isis Taylor.
I didn't notice the video quality differences until after my membership ran out. The majority of these scenes I have are 1000x564 resolution. Not that I mind that since I prefer 1280x720 max, for hard drive space, but I don't remember if that odd resolution is listed as the highest option. The options can be confusing. Some of the newer videos only have a ultra high video option. For those looking to save hard drive space or who have a slow internet connection those may be a pain to download.
The picture sets seem to follow suit in being confusing. The 1024 zips contain pictures that top out at 1500 long end.
There is one other complaint that I didn't consider a con since it's one that may not bother others and normally doesn't me. This site only updates once per week. They have quite a bit of older scenes that are 640x380 and that's the top resolution available. I understand this type of porn is probably expensive to make, but as others have mentioned Massage Creep does it while offering a full network of other sites to go with it. I also think Brazzers has gotten in on the massage scenes plus they have an entire network too. Why not remaster those older scenes, maybe 1-2 a week to help beef up the "one" update per week? And like a lot of sites, it seems some of the best scenes are only available in the lowest quality.
I did join the site through a promo or probably wouldn't have taken a chance on it. At the current price, I don't see myself returning to it. The varying score applies here too. If you like slim models, massage, add 5 points to the score. If not, subtract 5 points since I was okay with it and kind of in the middle. I like the oily massages.
Overall though, I wasn't that impressed with the content because of the scene to scene sameness which goes beyond formulaic. Most of the models look similar too. So beyond, talk, act apprehensive, fall to the seduction of the massage, have sex, you also get models who are similar build. In a way it reminds me of Amateur Allure where you had the feeling you were watching a guy live out his fantasies by posing as a porn site instead of creating porn people would want to see.
I still would recommend it for one month since the content is exclusive. I just wouldn't have high expectations unless you do prefer slimmer models. This number puts things in perspective. When I was on the site there was 226 models (June 2012). I have 27 model folders from it, so I only downloaded around 12% of the models. I would give more information on the bonus sites, but I only saw stream options for those and didn't fool with them.

06-13-1211:56pm (Update History) Reason: Was wrong about some of the sites that are included not being standalone sites. One can see the underlined ones. Those do come with a membership.
- Interesting, large and somewhat exclusive studio DVD site.
- TBP discount pushed me to join, glad I did now.
- Good download speeds unless you download more than a couple files, once one finishes, the other still downloading files don't pick up the speed.
- Pictures with some of the scenes, come zipped, various sizes, most are in the 1280 long end range.
- Quite a bit of content I've not seen from their studio. As a semi-regular on Videobox, I usually check the Lethal Hardcore DVDs. Am happy from the standpoint of a collector since there are some here I've never seen.
- The site is confusing, will be in cons, but was feeling risky and found out there are more sites included with the membership. Though they do seem to just be separate genres, more so than actual separate sites.
- Large amount of content especially for the price.
- Newer scenes have HD option, will be more specific in BL.
- Site is confusing. Bad confusing. They have six sites listed at the top of the main page besides Lethal Hardcore. Since I joined Lethal Hardcore, I figured this meant I would have to pay extra for the scenes on those sites. I took a chance and clicked download on one of the scenes from one of the other sites, it downloaded, no extra charges. This is a con because the site does sell itself, once a member, as a network of sites. I had no idea when joining it.
- Varying quality throughout the sites and the dreaded mislabeled file size. Here is a "high" .wmv file, listed as 780 MB, go to download it's 348 MB. I use those numbers to determine the quality, so this can be frustrating.
- Some scenes don't have pictures. Did I mention the confusion? Took me forever to find the zip download link. It was right in front of my eyes, but I kept looking over it. More my fault there, but could just be below average layout.
For the first time in about 4 years, I joined a site just because a handful of scenes I had seen on a TGP site with the Lethal Hardcore watermark on them. Anytime I have joined a site just for a handful of scenes, I've ended up disappointed. That's not the case here.
I want to reiterate how confusing this site can be. If I click Models ---> Abbey Brooks, it shows me 1 available scene on Lethal Hardcore. Below that scene it says, "Videos from Network Sites" and has five more videos of Abbey. Well, of course, this just pissed me off at first since I figured I was going to click one and it would say, "You need to join this site to see this video". But it didn't. I looked up at the url of the video on the "other" site and it was lethalmembers, so these other sites are included. These are the sites, I do see that none of these sites are listed as standalone sites so that's why I believe they are just Lethal Hardcore videos from different genres. HDVids, TeenGirls, MatureWomen, ExploitedExGF, Tranny.com and GayUltra. Some are very small as well so I have no reason to think they are standalone sites.
These are the numbers they advertise.
143,842 videos, 9,104 DVDs, 31,908 Stars, 3,256 HD Videos. They also have a streaming only "user submitted videos" section.
After that it gets a little confusing again. The site listed as HDVids, which you do have access to has 231 pages of 30 DVDs on each page. That's close to 7,000 DVDs and from the best I can tell you can access them all. I'm not going to go through all 7,000 to be positively sure, but I have been able to download the ones I have tried. These videos are very similar to what you will find on the other DVD sites, you'll see Teen Pink Visual all the way to the more obscure studios with generic names like "German Fucking".
This is not a bad thing to me. When I have the time, I have found quite a few older scenes that I have looked for for years. Here's the good news.
Despite all the confusing, the site works. It has a "favorites" button on every model and your favorites can be accessed from the toolbar at the top of the screen. Videobox veterans know the frustrations members have faced with the favorites being messed up. The site also has a clean interface when looking for certain models. It also lets you search by DVD series, so if you like their Hot Bods and Tail Pipes series you can pull just those videos up.
Once you get over the initial confusion, you find out that this site is a very good site. It has separate tabs to search for scenes, you can then whittle it down to search by newest to oldest updates or you can change your mind and search by entire DVDs. I mean no offense to their webmaster, but considering the early confusion, I kind of got the feeling someone was putting this site together and accidentally got it right.
They have a little bit of everything in the Lethal Hardcore DVD series' from Cougars Crave Kittens to My Stepdaughter Tossed My Salad. We eating or watching porn? Seriously, the series' are ones most porn fans are familiar with. I'm almost certain they don't have all their DVDs here. I have always liked the Hot Bods and Tail Pipe series. When I look at that series specifically it makes me think they have a lot of their DVDs here because they have 30 full DVDs just in that series. That alone is around 120-130 scenes just under Hot Bods and Tail Pipe.
I do wish they had more pictures especially with the older sets. I want to say most of the newer DVDs have pictures, but I'm just going to say "some" do. It reminds me somewhat of ZTOD in that respect. You also do have the option to view just picture sets. These have 1024px and 1600px download options.
Video quality, I was hoping to be able to be very specific on how many HD DVDs they have, but they don't have dates stamped on the DVDs to tell when they posted them. I can tell you this, they have over 120 Lethal Hardcore DVDs with HD option. I want to say that's roughly 25-30% of the DVDs in HD. The high option is not bad at all on the others. It's 720x480 with 2000 bitrate. From my experience on DVD sites, I would say they are about average or equal to other DVD sites in overall quality.
What lifts them up are those obscure ones. The rare (Model name) scene that you've never seen before and there are lots of those for me. It's not a best in class site, but it's near the best in the class known as, "I've already got everything from the best in class site".
The price makes it even better. One warming. We have all fell for missing a cross-sale when joining, but this site as well as Fame Digital and a couple others have been the first ones to use the checked cross-sale way over on the side of your screen method. It's over near your right boundary. Started at 89 on this site, dropped it to 86 for that. With that warning in mind, I do recommend this site as an alternative DVD site.

- Was for years my highest rated site. One of the internet's biggest and oldest sites.
- The updates continue to fill the site up, 3 photo sets, 2 videos a day for at least 8 years straight, 365 days a year.
- The last few years content has had HD video and the added high option in picture downloads that are around 3000 high end.
- You see a lot of models you've never seen on here, though they usually start popping up on other sites, in a recent trend though, I haven't seen as many new ones as Twistys used to have.
- Search engine is one of the better ones in porn. It still will recognize aliases and I think it's the only one that does that. Also has all the regular tags for searching.
- To me this is the biggest pro and I will further it in the bottom line, if you haven't been here in awhile or maybe even never, you are going to see tons of content you haven't seen.
- Download speed was very good also.
- A completely subjective con. I have had anywhere from 12-15 monthly memberships here, a 1 year one and four 3 month ones over the years. A bit of sameness has crept in for me.
- Maybe a word I've looked for before, I usually use it for music, but some of the content seems too polished, like it's overproduced. That could be the airbrushing which isn't near as bad as in the past.
- I think they could get more out of models than they do. Especially in solo scenes. It may be going back to being too polished, but it does seem that way.
Twistys has always been one of my top 5 favorite sites. I admit part of the reason I always liked it was the former webmaster Shap. You could email Shap with problems, questions and he would reply back to you in a day or two, if it was a problem, he would reply back usually in an hour or less. The selling of Twistys worried me because I knew that aspect was going to be gone.
My feeling now is that the new company running it is doing a good job. The content hasn't veered too far off the Twistys path and it's still sort of a harder glam site. My reduction in score is just because I don't feel like the site has improved any. It's possible that between my 1 year membership, in 2010, and now, my tastes have changed some. One thing I do know is that Twistys is now hurt by the retirement or lower activity of some models, especially Euro ones.
At one time, the Anetta Keys/Smrhova, Eve Angel, Stracy Stone, Angel Dark, Sandra Shine and the whole group that was going strong in 2006-2010, were a big selling point for me. All of those have either retired or just aren't very active, though there have been 4 new Eve photo sets this year and 2 new videos added.
This is my overall feeling with this visit to Twistys. I've seen it before. Nothing has really changed. Besides not having my usual favorite models, I haven't found many of the newer models that I really like or I should say that I really want to collect. That's not the site's fault though.
One thing I think is the site's fault is that they could vary the scenery more. Maybe push a fake different color wall in with paintings on it. I know, that's a sign of boredom, naked woman standing there and I'm complaining about the wall color. But that is the big con for me. I really feel like I've seen this content before though I know I haven't.
I really shouldn't even complain at all. They sent me a promo email that lowered the price to 1/3 of what it is if you join directly through the site.
The good and this is especially good for newcomers to Twistys or anyone who hasn't been on the site in a while. They have 1,095 photo sets per year, 730 videos per year and I have seen content as old as 2001. I can't say they updated that much in 2001, but I feel pretty safe in saying they have more content than a new member could go through in a month, maybe even 6 months. It's one of the very best sites for collectors of individual models since they usually have more than just a handful of photo sets and videos. They even added a new Georgia Jones video this week, who I haven't seen in what seems like a year or two. The numbers can be quite staggering even.
Those are my three favorites on Twistys. A few of the newer American models since they cover the world, not just a certain area.
Tori Black 17 photo sets, 14 videos
Tiffany Thompson 14 photo sets, 11 videos Georgia Jones 39 photo sets, 25 videos
You will occasionally find models that only have 2-4 of each, but there are literally dozens that have 10 or more photo sets and 10 or more videos.
This is all hard to find fault in for a new(er) member, but for me, I felt like I was picking through trying to find one or two new sets of the models I collect.
It would be a very good place to start a porn collection though. The high or big resolution zip files of photo sets have been showing up for a couple of years now and those are around 3000 high end, with a few that I have downloaded going over 3000. Newer videos are HD and have multiple format downloads available. Older picture sets or small zips are 1280 high end, with older videos, I would estimate at least 90% being at least 640/720x480.
Their search engine has always been one of my favorite parts of the site since it is able to recognize aliases. A couple of examples, Eve Angel is known as Eva Shine on Twistys, searching Eve Angel will still bring her up even though she is listed differently on their site. Anetta Keys is listed as Aneta Smrhova, searching with either variation of her first and last name will still recognize her and bring her up.
One thing that saved the score from dropping a little more, Twistys is now doing a Live section where they have a girl or girls doing a live video, it had only been happening once a month, but the last few months hadn't had a new scene. They are showing a new live video scheduled for this month so hopefully they are going to start doing that again since it shows a very good effort to improve the site with something a little different. I'm going to use the +/- again, when I say for new members who like glam porn with masturbation, g/g, some b/g, add 5 points to the score. If you have been here many times before, you could remove 5 points from the score. It's still highly recommended. It's also a good site for those who are interested in the photo side of porn with a nice amount of videos too.

- One of the biggest reality American networks on the internet.
- Some really impressive add-on site offers to members, including some sites with full access for as cheap as $1.25 for two days unlimited access.
- New sites are starting to takeover the network and compliment the sites that are no longer updating, will explain in BL.
- Good download speeds, has me in the 95% max range of my max speed.
- Navigation for a network is surprisingly good, site has went through a change or two in navigation and now seems to be settled into an easy to use, minimal mouse click format, explain more in BL.
- Newer videos are 1280x720, which at this point, I prefer since the 1920x1080 videos eat up my hard drives.
- Billing system is not well-known, but I have had two different problems and received a reply in less than 24 hours to both.
- All scenes have at least a screencap zip download of screen capture "pictures" and most have a separate photo download of more posed pictures of the model.
- As much as I have taken advantage of their upsells to other sites, it could be a con for some.
- Seach design can be frustrating since some of the search results will be for one of the sites you have to subscribe separately to.
- Coding in page has problems with Firefox downloading, had to switch to Chrome and it works fine with Chrome.
As the other American reality sites have started to slip, Bang Bros, to me has improved. Besides having a newly designed site with much improved navigation, they are now offering some really good deals on upsells. With the price to Bang Bros itself dropping to just $14.95 a month, it does leave you some spending room to add a few of those upsells too.
I admit, I was worried about adding upsell sites because the biller wasn't that well known. All worries were pushed aside when I had a billing problem, sent them an email and in less than 2 hours, they replied and fixed the problem. To my knowledge, they are the only one of the major American networks that can say they have responsive customer service. It made me feel more comfortable with adding upsells.
I won't name the site, but it is an old solo site that has been reviewed here several times by others, that the model retired from. It has over 200 scenes. One day when I signed in, I had a popup that said they wanted to give me a gift as a loyal customer and gave me full access to the solo site for $1.25 for 2 days. They also have a Spanish network that looks really good for $24.95 more. They have the Super Pack which has 4 sites of theirs that used to be stream only, but are now allowing downloads, you can get that whole pack for $24.95 too. They add several sites here and there that are $9.95 to add.
What made me raise the score though was they are adding new sites to their Bang Bros package too. They aren't updating as much as they used to, but they do add, on average, 3 new updates a day. Bang Bros has seemingly always tried to follow the trends in niches in porn and you can see it in their newer sites. It's nice seeing a site keeping their roots strong, while willing to take some chances too.
I'm going to review one of the newer sites separately because I enjoy it so much. I think Bang Bros and Brazzers have nudged Reality Kings and Naughty America out of the top networks because they keep improving.
There are subjective cons that I will go into since these don't bother me too much, but I know they do others. Most of the models are American. There are plenty of natural models on the sites, but you do get a lot of implants and probably even more tattoos. Another is that the guys on the sites can be annoying. I do think they are annoying sometimes, but I also think they're pretty funny usually. Even if in a goofy way.
To me, they do what nearly all networks are trying these days and do it the best. They try to create scenes that look believable with the help of a little imagination or even fantasy. Their newer sites, Latina Rampage, Porn Star Spa, Brown Bunnies, Magical Feet all have a niche covered in them, some even cover multiple niches. Though I should mention Magical Feet hasn't been updated in a few months so it may be going to archive status too.
On sheer numbers, this is what I figured up.
Total sites just in Bang Bros membership: 42
Total scenes available: 5221 as of 5/1/2012
It seems like each time I sign in they have a new site, a few of the very newest ones, Chongas, an excellent Latina site and Dorm Invasion, a run on the "what girls do for fun in their dorms".
Video quality over the last 2 years has a high option at 1280x720 in mp4 format. I prefer these to the other networks high quality ones just because of filesize. The average high quality scene on Bangbros will run between 750 MB to 1 GB, whereas the other networks are posting videos in excess of 2 GB each.
The old "low clickage" navigation rant of mine from the past is very good on the new format of Bang Bros. You can download the video, photos and screencaps with just 5 clicks with no page loads. Unlike a lot of sites where you have to click photos, go to photo page and click, click to go back, click to movie page, click to download preferred format, click to go back to the scene, click screencaps, click to download. Yes it annoys me that much! Bang Bros newest format has all the download options just two clicks away. I think I broke a dozen mice over the years going through this click, click, click process.
Not only are the new sites updating, but some of the old favorites that have been around since the beginning of this network are still updating as well. I like the blend of the old formula with new sites trying to bring in new twists.
I just keep letting my membership recur, being sure to cancel whatever addons I have added and plan to add more of those upsell addons in the future. My only real complaint is that Firefox doesn't recognize something in the coding so you can't click "Do this automatically" in Firefox's download dialog box. Chrome does it handle it well without problems as does IE so that's not too frustrating.
I don't like comparing them and Brazzers or any of these sites, but just like I now really enjoy Brazzers, I also feel like Bang Bros has made the strong similar improvements Brazzers has. I recommend it very highly.

- Another site in the ATK line of sites, do not take the score as the deadset score. There will be an add +5 or -5 at the end of bottom line.
- As with the other ATK sites there is a lot of content, newer videos are HD, pictures are still the big draw here and are zipped, will explain sizes in BL.
- Really good download speeds, actually reached speeds I hadn't reached before.
- While there is a theme here, "petite" most models in the 18-24 range fit the petite group, so there are a lot of models.
- Going to go out on a limb and will further in BL when I say this site is like joining a best of ATK, since you get content from all their sites except Archives, as long as the model is petite.
- Navigation is pretty basic and easy as long as it's working.
- I couldn't tell you the update schedule since it seems to vary, but there does seem to be daily multiple updates, will further in BL.
- To me there are two big cons with this site, one will be completely subjective, the other will be more based on your experience with these sites. They are:
#1 Programming nightmare, missing thumbnails by the dozen for the first 3 weeks of my membership. I will give them credit because it looks like they fixed it. There are still other problems, I've seen videos with parse link errors, no clue what that is, just know it means I can't download the video. I have videos that are corrupted and had a few zips that were corrupted too.
#2 Exclusivity. As a collector, exclusivity is one of the most important things to me. There is a high percentage of models here who have no content exclusive to this site. It does however come from one of the ATK sites. That's why this is subjective based on your experience. I joined ATK Exotics in December/January, ATK Premium in January/February, ATK Galleria in February/March and ATK Petites in March/April. I have a lot of Petites content already.
I'll jump right in where the cons left off since I ran out of characters.
Though I numbered it as #2 con, my biggest con was the amount of overlapping content here on ATK Petites. If I hadn't been to the other ATK sites, I would probably be rating this site in the 90s, but I have, estimating, 60% of the content Petites has that I would want from my memberships to the other ATK sites. This is straightforward enough by them in the videos where you will see ATK Premium watermarks on videos, ATK Galleria, ATK Exotics, etc...
It's not straightforward when I join though. The preview lets me see all the models and # of photos, # of photosets, # of videos. It doesn't tell me that I may already have 50-100% of those from their other sites. I have complained in the past about DDF doing this, so it's only fair that I stay consistent and complain here as well.
It's not to say this site is a ripoff or isn't good. As it is, I give it an 85 because there is a good amount of exclusive content here. The score would have been a little lower if the programming problems hadn't at least shown some improvement, which they did a few days after I posted the comment about the missing thumbnails.
Here is a very small example of how exclusive the content is to this site. From March 25th-March 28th, there have been this many updates.
32 photo sets
Those are staggering numbers. That's 48 combined videos and picture sets in 4 days, or 12 per day.
8 of those sets are exclusive to this site, that's pictures and videos. So, 8 of 48 are exclusive to this site. That's roughly 16% exclusive. Having had memberships to 3 of their other sites, it means I have most of this content.
The update schedule is impossible to list because it changes daily, one day they had 12 photosets, another day they had 5 photosets and 6 videos.
Okay, enough bitching. ATK sites are fun sites. You're not going to find much if any airbrushing in their photos, you're going to see newer models and you'll also find old sets of current hardcore stars doing innocent photosets as a newcomers. I do get annoyed by the hairy sets and the even worse, "scary hairy" as they have them tagged, but overall, the girls range from cute to very pretty. It's not close to glam. Nearly all sets start in very normal clothes from jeans, shorts, skirts with some lingerie mixed in.
The newer picture sets have 3 zip sizes, largest is 2000x3000 resolution and vice versa. Petites can be a little confusing here since some of the newer sets from their other sites are not as high resolution, but most of the newer sets are the above number. They do have a custom zip feature that works when I have tried it.
This is an in-between one. The videos are very hit/miss. Most of the girl/girl videos aren't very good. The solo videos are the best ones on the site and usually these are worth a download. The boy/girl videos are borderline poor. I'm not talking about technical quality either. They are poor in the sense that you don't get a believable feeling from the scenes, it's very clinical even. I had the same feeling about Nubiles boy/girl videos too so ATK shouldn't take it too personally. I do get the feeling that a lot of these girls are not comfortable on video, just like I get on Nubiles videos, if they're not comfortable, I would rather see more photosets of them because the photos are really good.
Technical quality on the newer videos is good, at least a year, maybe two years of HD videos, but I really think if you're here for the videos, you're going to be disappointed.
This was my first time as a member on Petites or I would have known that most of the content comes from the other ATK sites. I do think the ATK sites have made big positive strides in their site design, navigation, search options and they continue to get tons of models.
My advice is if you prefer one of the niches like hairy, exotic, to try one of those if you're just starting out with these sites, but if you want a really good overview of all their niches, Petites would be a very good place to start. If you've been on their other sites in the last few months, I can't even recommend Petites because you're going to see a lot of content you have already seen.
As a new, non-biased towards genres, member, I would recommend this site as the one to join. It's like buying a greatest hits album by a band you're new to.
If you're new to the ATK sites or haven't been to them in the last year or two, add 5 to the score for a 90. If you are not new to the sites and have been on the other ATK sites recently, take 5 points off for an 80.

- This site continues to push the technical quality boundaries and probably has the highest production value of any site.
- Numbers will be broken down in the bottom line. The video quality is and has been at 1920x1080 for a good while. The picture quality also is an impressive 2400x1800 in "large" quality and come zipped.
- While the update frequency may not be comparable to some of the big networks, they average between 10-11 updates per month.
- The settings on this site are different from most sites you will join. From tropical locations to indoors at large houses to farms and lush fields. The outfits are also fitting of the settings. The only site I know of that goes through this much setup is ALS Scan.
- You'll be hard-pressed to find a model who isn't attractive.
- Download speeds are excellent (95% of max)
- Navigation is easy to use and also gives you the options to search by year, model name, age, nationality and location.
- Will further these in the BL.
- Probably the only real valid con. I think there should be more pictures in the photo sets. Maybe 300 even. It's a con that's a compliment. The pictures are some of the best I've seen, but they skip a lot of the teasing seen in the videos.
- I'm still going to complain about the price, but I only join it once per year so it's not a very big complaint. I use it as my Christmas present to myself.
- This one was more frustration than anything. There was a few days where the site would open, models could be viewed, but when you clicked on a model, it wouldn't let me go into the download section. Lasted 3-4 hours each time. It only happened twice though.
This re-review started out as one of the harder ones I've done. I have mostly joined networks the past year and at first found myself frustrated with the update frequency of In The Crack. Keeping in mind, I had all the content I wanted coming into 2011's updates. It almost was enough of an initial letdown to stop me from rejoining this year, but they had 4 Jinx/Jynx Maze updates and that pushed me to join. As the subscription has went on, my respect and enjoyment from this site keeps growing. This will be slightly different than most reviews I write.
Production values of this site have made me notice production values. I wanted to bitch and gripe about the "only" 11 or so average of updates per month, but when I started looking at the sets, I realized it wouldn't be possible to make that many updates. They have settings ranging from tropical beaches to large houses to country/farm settings and the models' outfits fit the settings accordingly. When I compare this to the majority of sites I have joined in the last year where the setting is almost always the same, the outfits are almost always the same or similar at least, it made me look at this site differently.
On August 13th, 2007, ITC had their first 1920x1080 video, ironically, featuring the model August. Considering this site has been around since 2001, it may sound like half their content would be lesser quality, but it's not true. ITC's original problem was lack of updates. So for once, a lack of updates in the early years of a site's life is going to really help here. An example of this: For the year 2002, they had a total of 11 updates...for the whole year. In May of 2011, they had 13 updates just for May.
As of February 20th, 2012, they have 622 scenes. Of those, 509 have the 1920x1080 option. Those 509 have three video options, 1920x1080, 1280x720 and 640x360. The earlier 113 scenes have two video options of 640x480 and 320x240. This made me re-think complaining about updates since they are releasing 100+ updates per year now, combined with the high production value and high technical quality. Another thing I have noticed about their content is if they have a model I collect or consider a favorite, their content of her will be near or at the top of my list of her content. This is especially true of the pictures. Now I have a complaint.
If I could change one thing about this site it is that I would add more pictures to the sets. With all the time and probably money spent on the best models, settings, outfits, why not bump those picture sets up to 300 or more photos? It would flesh out the updates too.
Possible con for some and I originally listed it as a con in my last review, but I think there is a reason for this. The videos do not have a full scene download option, they are each broken into parts and the parts represent a certain action you're going to see in each part. One part is pissing, one part is stripping, one part is masturbation, one part is close-ups and you get the drift. I would guess these different actions require moving to different locations in the setting and also think it gives the members a choice of what they want to see since I know some are disgusted by pissing, even the close-ups, so you can pick and choose what you want. A full scene option would be nice, since if I like a model, I'm going to download all parts anyway, but I'm more neutral on it than calling it a pro or con.
You will occasionally get the feeling of the scenes being formulaic, but I'm thinking that's what they're going for. You're going to get what you expect from each scene. This is again where I think more photos in the sets would make an improvement.
Another thing I think could help here is more girl/girl scenes. By my count, out of the 622 scenes, they have 17 girl/girl scenes with at least one being girl/girl/girl. Their lesbian scenes are easily some of the best I've seen. I don't even think it needs to become a regular part of the site, but maybe 1 or 2 per month just to break the monotony of the formulaic solo scenes.
With all this being said, I think they suceed at creating a different and unique porn site. I would estimate after this last membership that I have around 90% of their content and have yet to delete one scene. That far outweighs giving me 1,000s of scenes that I will only keep a handful of. It's one of those that I can't recommend highly enough. I do think viewing the content with an open mind, noticing the production value, the work that is put into the sets, adds even more to its value. I still won't join more than once per year though. In a way though, maybe that's a positive too? Instead of joining every 3 months and sifting through the tons of updates, I know I'm downloading most everything new for the past year.

- Kiara Mia is a very pretty solo model who is hard to find content of.
- If you try to leave the site after taking the tour you are offered a lower price of $19.75.
- Some pictures have extremely high resolutions, some go near 6000 long end.
- Site is fast
- 13 similar solo sites included in membership
- Where to start? First of all the site has no downloads to speak of. You can't download the videos and though some of the picture sets have a download link, it doesn't work.
- Really old style of updates, including up to 10 parts/updates for ONE photoset. Videos are also updated this way and can be streamed.
- From looking at two of the bonus sites, Isis Taylor, Nina Mercedez, those sites also offer no downloads.
- To ask $30 for this group of poor sites with very low quantity counts is borderline criminal. Honestly, I don't even like this model anymore. That's how disgusted this site made me.
- Speaking of criminal, some of the videos and picture sets are from Brazzers and Aziani. I'm sure they have rights to use those, but I already had those videos from Brazzers and Aziani.
- Archived webcam shows are poor. One includes Kiara fully dressed until the last 2 minutes, just sitting and talking. I joined a porn site not a "tell me about your GD life site".
I probably could have went on with cons for another 1000 characters or so. I am not kidding when I say this or exaggerating, I cancelled my membership with this site within 9 minutes of joining it, according to my ccbill receipts. I got burnt on some solo sites a few months ago. Made myself write, "I will not fall for those solo sites anymore" 500 times, then fell for it again.
There is a little good. I tell you though, you're going to have to work to get the good. The good is you can use a legal bulk image software downloader to download all the photos in each set.
Every set that has a "download this set in zip" link gives me a 403 Forbidden message when I click it, so using the bulk downloader was the only choice since I'm not going to go back to 1998 and do right click save as on each photo.
Most of the pictures are 1500x1000, but I would say 15-20% are in the 3500x6000 range. The reason I had been drawn to this model was a set I saw on Reality Kings that had her in it for about 1-2 minutes. It was one of those sets that has 15-20 women in it. She really stood out in that video and I had been looking for content of her ever since seeing it. I did a few sets on Brazzers, but haven't had much luck anywhere else.
So these pictures, despite being a pain in the ass to download, are pretty rare. There also are a lot of pictures. The thing is, there isn't a lot of sets. For those that were around porn sites in the early 2000s, you'll know this practice that this group of sites practices.
Here's what you see when you join. There are 20 photo sets per page and there are 15 pages. That's 300 photo sets. Right? Or roughly. Hell, lets say 250 photo sets.
Looking on my hard drive, there are roughly 50 photo sets. These include sets as small as 15 photos of Kiara at a gay/lesbian celebration. I don't have 50, my count is 37, but I grouped most of the candid ones into one folder so I'm giving them a boost when I say 50. I can tell you that there are roughly 4,000 photos. You can do the math. They have 250 or so photo sets listed, 4,000 pictures, there's roughly 15-25 photos in each set. Now for the fun part. You'll find photos that went with a set updated in late 2009, in the late 2010 updates and have to drop them into the right folder.
I can't support that. It's misleading, it's 2012, piece photo sets together over 7-8 updates is a hassle and a cheap way to boost the content count. This wouldn't have been so bad if the videos weren't done the same way, but they are. This gets worse too. Besides only allowing streaming, they release a video in parts, 2-5 on some, then they release the "full" video as a new update.
This site's earliest content is dated 8-3-2009. That means this site is nearly 2.5 years old. It has roughly 40-50 photo sets and around 20 full videos. Based on this pace, the site has been up for 129 weeks, thanks date duration calculator and has roughly 60-70 full scenes or photo sets.
I can't tell you how pitiful that is and it's still updating too. They list their updates now as 3-4 times a week, but they are tiny pieces of full sets of photos or tiny pieces of videos. Plus you have to go through the hassle of using an image downloader and can't download the movies.
On the blog, Kiara has posted one time that I see. On her twitter which is linked to the site, she mostly brags about how much money she is making. That didn't help my perception of her. Oh and lets go back to late 90s, early 2000s again, she has a wish list too of all the things you are welcome to buy her and send her. There's something to be said about models who are satisfied with people willing to pay money to look at them naked.
Technically, the photos are good to excellent. Nice resolutions, colors, settings and poses. The videos vary in streaming quality since some do come from other sites. Some look to be 720p, maybe, others look to be in the 480p range.
The webcam shows are still active, I think. There was one in the last month, but there was a full 6 month lull in these also in the archived section. Sadly, the best ones are the ones of her just talking. The others are webcam recordings of photo shoots. That's exciting, huh? Lets watch photo or video shoots from a blurry camera across on the other side of the room!
Not to worry to the webmaster or Kiara, I'm not making fun of you all. I'm obviously the dumbass here. I will enjoy the pictures though after 6 hours of loading a bulk downloader. Oh and on that, a few of the newer sets have broken image links, so you can't even use the bulk downloader on those. I gave the site 5 points for having a nice looking site and a rare model. That is how my recommendation for this site will work.
If, like me, you just have to have those 4,000 pictures of her and don't mind the hassle of the image downloader then you might not feel too ripped off. Otherwise, unless you just like throwing money down the drain, don't join this site.

- A re-review that I didn't think was needed until I used the new format of the site some more, one of the biggest collections of exotic women on the internet and the new format of the website makes the site work much better than before.
- Newer videos have a 1280x720 HD option, a small (.mp4) version, a standard .mp4 version and a standard .wmv version. Older videos have standard DVD resolution with .wmv and .mov files.
- New site formatting and layout is really nice. This may be hard for some to appreciate unless you were a member back in say 2007-2009. BL will expand on this.
- Newer picture sets are 3000 high end and come zipped, also has a custom zip option. Most of all the photo sets are at least 1500 long end, outside of the random very old sets.
- Search engine has improved greatly.
- Pictures, retain an amateur feel...done professionally.
- This one will also show up in cons, about 75% of the time, site is giving me 100% max download speed, very impressive.
- The biggest con is one I don't think I had ran into on here before, but the improved search engine could be making it easier to find these by accident. I understand that exotic means "different" to some, but women with hairy armpits and hairy arms and hairy legs have a place on ATK Hairy. I will go into it more in BL.
- I am still impressed by the update schedule that I talked about in my previous comment on this site, but it may be a little different than it first appeared to me, one of the day's updates, each week, looks to be from ATK Archives and while I listed 10 videos each week in the previous comment, it then dropped to 8 the very next week, then went up to 9 this past week. It's not a big con, but I did want to note the change.
- Only other one, sometimes the site is painfully slow. I do think 80% fast, 20% slow is pretty accurate. When it's in the slow speed state, I have to download 4 files at once to reach 75% of my max download speed.
The majority of my feelings towards this new version or format of ATK Exotics are very positive. I don't remember how many updates they used to have, but it definitely seems like they are updating more than I remember and the addition of HD .mp4 files on the videos is nice though I have never looked to the ATK sites for videos, preferring their photo sets. The videos are improving too though.
I want to go into the one big con since it's purely subjective. I had noticed messmer's comments on ATK Hairy, about how some of the sets were going with too much hairy. I'm not against pubic hair and do prefer some pubic hair. I don't really care for the full bush, but if the model is hot enough, the full bush won't even completely turn me away. What's the deal with the women with more underarm hair than me? A few even have the outline of mustaches. I understand that it is natural for some women to have more body hair than others, but lets have them with their arm up in their thumbnail.
Seriously, it's a very big turn-off. I noticed one of the hairy underarm ones has her arm up in her thumbnail. That's not too bad to see since it's a small picture. I think the re-review score would have been a little higher if I hadn't started running into these extremely hairy models.
It's not a big con on the updates including a day of Archive content, but I did want to mention it as well as the movies going from 10 a week for 2-3 weeks straight then dropping to 8 then up a little to 9. Neither of these would stop me from recommending or re-joining the site since I think the site does most everything right.
Onto the good, I really can't say enough for the positive changes in the site. I don't know when these changes went into effect, but they weren't completely there the last time I was member which was in January 2011. The search engine is much better as well though they still have the tags I don't see as very useful, but the ethnicity tags seem to be working perfectly and it's a multiple tier search so you can easily search for "Latina" then specify the year "2011" and it works.
Also am very happy to see them doing more sets of black women. They did some in the past, but now, at least for this month, the black models are getting as much coverage as any of the other ethnic groups.
Glad also to see the HD videos. I also don't think ATK's sites need to go to 1920x1080. Even though I download the videos of the models I like, I prefer ATK's pictures of them and the videos are just like icing on the cake at their sites so 1280x720 is plenty good for me, they also are not the overly huge files, most of the HD ones are running in the 500 MB range.
I tried the custom zip feature out. I don't think I remember a site having this that I have been on or I may have missed it in the past. You click to create a custom zip and it lets you pick what resolution you want, though this changes based on if there is a higher resolution available. You then see the images in the set and click each one you want added to the zip. Pretty nifty feature. It reminds me of Videobox's old "make your own clip" feature.
One thing I noticed that the new format has improved. I am finding models from 2006 that I did not have in my collection that I wanted. I do think this is because of the much easier to use site and search engine, but it's just as much showing how bad the old format and search engine were too.
It's hard to believe in this day and age of porn sites refusing change, that just 3 years ago this site's navigation was terrible, they only offered photo zips in parts and more times than not, I would visit it daily for the first week then wouldn't go back until near the end of the membership. This time, I have visited daily and allowed it to recur because there have been so many models that I have missed in the past that I can now find. They deserve the praise for that. Do something with the hairy models, like keep them on ATK Hairy or even slap a "Hairy armpits" icon on them. I don't mind that others like that, but I doubt those who do and join a site like ATK Hairy would want to see quite a few perfectly shaven models either on it.
In closing, the speed of the site and speed of downloads is seemingly the best I have seen when it's going good. I hadn't seen my download speed go that high on any site, but it does have its slow time which could just be peak hours. It's a fair enough trade off since the fast time is more frequent than the slow.
On recommending it, I would recommend it over all exotic/ethnic model photo sites now and even to those who have been a member in the past because it does come off as a whole new site. They also do have a few free cam shows each month, but they're never on when I have access to the computer.

- Lana Lopez, one of the sexiest models I have ever seen.
- Photos vary in size, biggest resolution I saw was 2000 long end, the majority are 1200x1800 and come zipped.
- 24 webcam shows in the archive, but see cons, bottom line
- Photos are nice and crisp, Lana is an excellent poser and the photos here are worth way more than the videos.
- Download limit on photo zips, 21 zips allowed per day. Will further in BL.
- I was pretty excited about the video section. No download limits, the first one I downloaded was HD quality. Then I noticed the videos were downloading in 1-2 minutes.
- Three upsell "zipsets", no joke, $17.95 each, each one has an "explicit" video and matching photo set. So if you want to three explicit videos, a subscription plus the zipsets will set you back around $70.
- It's not all exclusive, quite a few of the videos are from Holly Randall's site. Some of the pictures in candids are from car websites.
- The webcam videos, I thought for sure these would be the saving grace for this site. Then I watched them, they average 5 minutes in length, go to full nudity, but no masturbation. At least Lana has a good personality and is really cute in these, otherwise, they would be useless.
I probably would have gone a little easier on this site if they had included access to their other sites, but they don't.
Instead you get a site of one of the most underrated softcore models, Lana Lopez, that has just a little over 100 photo sets including candid sets, which are often not even close to being nude, questionable if they are even "porn". The pictures are good quality, very nice colors, settings and Lana as always really shines in them but these photo sets average maybe 35 photos in each.
When your pictures are the strong point of the site, I would hope for at least 75-100 photos per set.
The videos range in quality. One is HD, but it's licensed from another site. The videos that are exclusive to this site are videos of the photoshoots or very softcore/tease. And excuse me for saying this, but why can't the dumbass photographer get his head out from in front of the video camera? It's bad enough that his camera is flashing, making noises, but now I get to see the back of his head?
There are some good videos. Lana was very softcore for most of her career, there are some masturbation videos mixed in though these are in the minority. The quality is okay on the videos, most are standard DVD quality 640x480. At least her tease videos are sexy though and were able to get the photographer out of the frame.
Where I became most annoyed with this site was when I clicked "zipsets" at the top of the site, right in with the site's menu options like "pictures", "videos", "webcam" there is "zipsets".
Here you can buy 3 "explicit" videos and matching photo sets for $17.95 each. First of all, there are explicit videos on the site that are included in the membership price. Also, I know for a fact that Aziani has at least 2 very explicit videos of Lana. Why should I pay for 3 videos that should be included with the site? That's $55 for three videos. If this was supply and demand, I could maybe understand, but you are giving me explicit videos with membership. Why would I pay for something I'm already getting? If none of the videos included with the site were explicit, then I could maybe understand it.
The webcam archived videos. I really like these videos with any solo model who has a good personality. Lana has that and more. She's smiling a lot, laughing and teasing, but then she takes her clothes off, spins around a few times and that's the end of the video. It reminds me of those cam sites where you can see the model teasing, sometimes even nude, but if you want to see more you have to pay for a private show. That's exactly how these webcam videos are.
I really can't tell you when the site last updated. There are no dates, but the live webcam calender was last marked for Wednesday, November 19th, looking at my calender the last November 19th on a Wednesday was in 2008. So those haven't been updated in 3 years. The last diary entry was in August 2010 and says she did sets for Twistys and would be posting those sets on this site without the Twistys watermark, so there goes more of the exclusivity of the site.
It's a poor site overall. No updates. Lots of photoshoot videos which aren't very desirable since you see the photographer's head as much as Lana.
The photo sets are nice, but as mentioned above they are small photosets. It should be a bonus site to another site or include bonus sites at the $20 price.
I can only recommend this site if you are a huge fan of Lana and even then, you may still regret it. There just isn't much good with this site except Lana. Not even close to recommending for casual or even moderate Lana fans. There are other multi-model sites that have good content of her and won't try to get you to pay $55 for 3 explicit videos either.

- The one site in this group of sites that doesn't focus on one main model, instead focusing on point of view style hardcore scenes.
- Quality is really good. Scenes are in standard HD quality 1280x720, three downloadable options, WMV, AVI and FLV.
- Wasn't expecting photo sets, but they have a photo set with every scene and these photo sets are not just screencaps, if they are, they've got a trick camera! The pictures are good quality as well, up to 2300 long end resolution and come zipped.
- Updates regularly, averages out to once a week with a video and photo set. I do think the content is exclusive too.
- Simple navigation of clicking "scenes" then just going through them.
- For a POV site, the cameraman does a pretty good job of filming. I didn't get seasick.
- Comes with four solo model sites with the Jessica Jaymes one being the best of the sites.
- Not a lot bad here, the site isn't real big, but they are updating. When Spencer reviewed it for the TBP review, he listed 26 scenes, they are now up to 47.
- Probably a little sharing with the Jessica Jaymes site, there are sets here that have Jessica in them and those also appear on her site.
- If you're not careful you will miss the photo sets since they are listed as "HD gallery" on each scene. Not really a con, but thought I would mention it in case anyone joins and misses the photos.
This is a bonus site that comes with four other solo model sites. In trying to be fair, I've reviewed each of those since they didn't have any current active reviews on them. Three of the solo sites are okay if you're a fan of the model, nothing spectacular though. Jessica Jaymes solo site is very good. As a whole, this group of sites is recommended and especially recommended for fans of Jessica.
This site First Class POV is good. The models are top-tier, from Tiffany Brookes to Brandy Aniston to Annie Cruz to an old favorite London Keyes to one of my all-time favorites Mariah Milano.
The quality here is also very good, all 47 scenes are shot in 1280x720. Looking at the update schedule, they have averaged right at one scene (picture set and video) per week. The site's first update was on 9/26/10, the newest update is 9/15/11 and there are 47 scenes, so there were a few that were a day or two off, but weekly seems to be the standard they are going for now.
Some of the content is shared within the group of sites, but I'm going to estimate it's at 10% or less.
It's hard to find much fault in a site that has HD videos and nearly 2500 long end zipped photo sets. It's even harder to find fault if you're a fan of the solo models they have, making this a really nice bonus site.
I should mention that my download speeds on all these sites has been very high. The POV content ranges from some just being blowjobs, others being full sex and the filming is better than the average POV scene.
Overall, it's a good POV site that just needs some growth in amount of content to match its very good quality of videos and photos. Recommended as a bonus site to those solo model sites, but wouldn't just recommend it to POV only fans since you would be paying $30 for 47 scenes.

- Capri Cavalli, one of the prettier porn stars and she's just behind Aleska Diamond in the prettiest eyes in porn for me.
- This is some sort of re-launch or new launch. It should be noted that the name is different than the TBP listing has, it's now XXXCapri not Club Capri Cavalli.
- Videos are nice quality 1280x720, except for a few of the older ones, which is where this site can be very confusing.
- Pictures are in the 2000 long end range and are zipped.
- Navigation continues to be a strong plus on this site especially with what I think is the web 2.0 software.
- Comes with four other sites
- The site is updating, I was very frustrated with this group of sites when I did the Regan review and said I thought they were recycling. Maybe their webmaster could chime in and say if these new updates are newly shot. Capri is pretty enough and young enough that it's really hard to tell, will continue in BL.
- At this point, it's a very small site, 26 videos, 19 photo sets.
- Doesn't look like there will be any new webcam videos
- Re-launch as a different site is going to cause some confusion, hopefully I can help that confusion out in the bottom line
This is a very hard site to review. Two main reasons, it was known as Club Capri Cavalli, now it's XXXCapri. I don't know if that needs to be changed in the TBP listing.
Next problem and why there is going to be confusion. When listed as Club Capri Cavalli in Duke's review for TBP, the site had 69 videos and 83 photo sets.
Not anymore. The site has 19 photo sets and 26 videos as XXXCapri. Similar to the situation with the Regan site, I'm not for sure if there's a legal problem that happened there, but I do want to clear that up before anyone joins it expecting quite a bit more content than there is.
What content is here is very good. Seems to be a trend with the models on this group of sites to be good dirty talkers. Capri is no exception, which again leads me to preferring her solo videos over the girl/girl, boy/girl. The content by genre.
19 Photo Sets
3 old webcam with Jessica
As I said in the cons, the site is now updating. It's not quite making a weekly update, but it's pretty close. August 7, 2011, seems to have been the date that it switched to the name and since then there have been 3 photo updates, 3 video updates on August 15, August 25 and September 5th. I'm not going to use the recycle word, but would like to know if these new updates are actually new updates or just old sets with the new watermark logo on them. I don't think it's going to change my score much either way since an update every 10 dates isn't going to fill the site very fast.
I look at it the same way as the Regan and Tanya site, if you're a fan of Capri, it might be worth joining just for what looks to be mostly exclusive content.
However, if you are a fan of the other models, the group itself as a whole is very good and would be recommended.
I'm hoping if nothing else with this review that I can warn Capri fans ahead of time that there isn't near as much content as there was when the site was listed under the Club Capri Cavalli name, it will save them some frustration, like the frustration I had with the Regan site and in turn save the webmaster the frustration of seeing their sites get slammed by reviews expecting more.
If the updates are new and the content is still being shot then I would add about 5 points to the score.

- Solo site of porn model Tanya James, comes with access to four bonus sites.
- Tanya is a very good solo performer. I wasn't that familiar with her until receiving this as a bonus site.
- Videos are 1280x720, this covers all the videos on the site too, though some of the 1280x720 earlier videos are downloadable as flv files only.
- Photos are in the 2000 long end range, also come zipped.
- All the sites in this group of sites have what I would call nearly unmatched navigation. For once, sites decided to make everything simple and it works perfectly.
- Near max download speeds
- By far the biggest con, no more updates, not for sure if Tanya retired or not, but the last update was in April 2011.
- Add the no more updates con to the fact that the site only has 32 photo sets, 31 videos and you can really understand the problem with no more updates.
- One thing I really liked about both the Regan and Jessica sites in this group were the webcam archive videos, doesn't look like Tanya did any of these and that's a shame because she seems to be a good dirty talker.
A hard to site to grade. If it were still updating weekly, I would probably go low 80s with the score because Tanya is a very good performer. Some of her solo videos on here are as good as any solo videos I've seen. She's very believable.
If you're not familiar with Tanya, she could fill some niches, tall, long legs, she's listed at 5'10" in heels, she looks to be pushing 6'2", some of the longest legs I've seen in porn and it took me several looks to decide that her boobs are fake. Maybe I'm wrong though, but I do believe they are, either way, very good boob job if they are fake.
In one way, I think it's disturbing that I've found myself giving points for great navigation, but so many sites these days are cluttered, confusing, misleading ads here and there that it's a breath of fresh air to see a site...that just works how it's supposed to.
This is what you're going to get from this site.
32 photo sets
I wouldn't completely dismiss this site though. Tanya pulls off the blonde one set, brunette in the next set very well, the long legs, the dirty talking, she's very good. I much preferred the solo videos which is a plus since there are more of those and it looks like boy/girl, girl/girl videos of her are pretty easy to find on DVD sites.
Having a HD option for all the videos is also a plus, though some might not like the flv videos since those require a different media player that windows media player, I recommend VLC media player on those.
This is how I'm going to approach recommending it. If you're just a fan of Tanya and not the other models on here, then I could maybe recommend it. Not being real familiar with her content, I still believe this content is exclusive, so it may be enough if you are a collector of her content, especially with the solo videos being pretty rare from looking at her catalog of content on DVD sites.
As a whole, if you like Jessica Jaymes, Regan Reese, Capri, not for sure what Capri's (Cavalli?) last name is now since it has changed and like POV porn, there is one of those included too, then it's easily recommended. Jessica's site really pulls these others up if you are a fan of hers, making these other sites nice bonus sites.

- Official solo site of Jessica Jaymes, comes with access to four bonus sites as well, but I will focus this just on her site.
- Updates weekly with a photo set and video
- Photos come zipped, newest photos are 1600 long end resolution.
- Videos are available in 3 formats, wmv, flv and avi, all three come in 1280x720 resolution, which I prefer over 1920x1080, just because of file size. Bitrates are near 3000, keeping the files from being overly large.
- Has a webcam show every two weeks from what I can see, archives are available for the past shows and if you miss any.
- Each site in this group of sites has excellent navigation for an OCD freak like me, neatly laid out, clean layout.
- Has quite a bit of interaction with Jessica, a regularly updated blog, candid "normal" pictures to go with the blog, an email to write her at and so on.
- Interesting new type of scene called "Fuck My Fan" where you can apply to have sex with Jessica.
- Very good download speeds
- Going to have to nitpick to find many cons. Could update more often and that's only a nitpick if you've never been here before since there is a big archive to keep you busy.
- Older content is lesser quality, this is one I've never liked taking too much off for this since technology advances cause this more than the sites can help.
- Here's one you won't hear much, but I would like to see more Jessica solo, but that's more of a personal taste one.
Let me start by saying this group of sites, not for sure if it is officially a network or just a group of sites, this Jessica site stands way above the others. From talking to the webmaster here and also other webmasters in the past about these solo sites, I do know these sites and some models can be very hard to work with consistently.
That's why I think this site of Jessica's is really special. Most of you know my favorite model for years was Eve Angel and I loved her old solo site. So these solo sites are right up my alley. I'm not as big into the personal interaction part as some are, but it looks like Jessica puts a lot into this site. This new style of set known as "Fuck My Fan" is something I haven't seen since the old site Be the Mask. Jessica blogs pretty consistently, 4-5 times a month and includes pictures of whatever the blog is about.
So, if you're into the interaction that many believe a solo site should have, you're going to get that here. There also are the twice a month webcam shows. How can I fault any of this? I really don't think I can.
To the site's main content. If anything works against Jessica, I joined this group of sites for Regan Reese. I like curvier models, as my name says exotic models. While I think Jessica is a very pretty woman, she's not the type of model I usually am looking for. I'm not one of those jerks that bashes a model on her looks. If I was single and she was single, I would date her in a second, but she's not the type of "porn" model I look for.
The girl/girl videos do help here. What's the newest update? With Raylene/Alexis Fontaine, one of my all-time favorite models. Tera Patrick is in one of the older ones and she's another favorite.
Where I will say I like Jessica is in her energy and performances. This should make my point above about her not being the usual type of model I go for, more clear. I do not have one scene of Jessica besides the ones I downloaded from this site, but I have seen her on sites I frequently join like Brazzers, Videobox, but still haven't tried any of her scenes. I guess that's being guilty of judging a book by its cover since she turns out to be one of the better performers I've seen in my 15-20 TB porn collection.
For some numbers, each includes photo set and video:
36 solo scenes
40 group scenes
46 girl/girl scenes
49 boy/girl scenes
5 behind the scenes, scenes
110 webcam archived videos, no photos on these
That's a total of 285 scenes involving Jessica. If you're a fan of hers, I don't think there is anyway possible to get this much content of her and as I go through the scenes, she may turn into a favorite for me since I've been really impressed by her performances.
Lets take the numbers a little deeper. The earliest video on the site is 640x480 resolution, which isn't that bad. Somewhere in there they moved up to 854x480, then the 1280x720 started around mid to late 2010. So overall, the quality is very good. Even the webcam archives show a similar progression from 320x240 to 640x480 to the last year or so being 720x480.
There really isn't very much to complain about. Well, except more scenes with Mariah Milano would be great! And maybe some more tribbing in the girl/girl scenes. See me nitpicking? One of the biggest reasons I enjoy these sites is the functionality of them. I know, go figure, but I've said it in the past, poor navigation sites cause frustration and frustration takes away from the enjoyment of the content. Not a problem here.
And by the time I finish watching more of Jessica's videos, especially the webcam ones, I have a feeling I'm going to like her much more than I did originally. Going high on the score because I do think the site edges Eve Angel Official when it comes to solo model sites. One note there, this is being written from the perspective of a new member who has none of the content so it's all new to me. I'm not for sure if it would hold up in comparison to Eve's site in the long run since Eve's site does update more, but with navigation pluses, good quality throughout, Jessica's personality, I'm going to say it's the best solo site out right now.
There are four bonus sites here. I am going to work on, probably slowly, posting a review of each since the sites have changed some since the TBP listings or since a member review or comment. So those too help. Very nice package of sites overall.

- A site that is only about nude photos, no videos here and most of the photos are non-sexual poses. The selling point for me to join was that I liked several of the models and the price is right at $9.95 per month.
- Really nice pictures, I like the lighting, they also come zipped.
- I personally didn't have any problems with navigation and thought it was very easy to use. It's one of those sites where you start at A on the model index, click A, scan through those models, go to B, and so on.
- If you are interested in photography, I would say this site would be a nice place to start. It's very artsy.
- Well, if you're coming here to find anything that doesn't require some imagination to enjoy from a sexual standpoint, you're out of luck.
- This is actually a con based on the sister site Goddess Nudes, the photos could be bigger, most of what I have downloaded top out at 1999 long end. I've not scanned through all of them, but the majority have been around the 2000 long end range.
- There's not much tease or strip here. The model I was most interested in, Zulfija, doesn't have a clothed picture on the site!
- I personally think Goddess Nudes, ran by the same company, is a better site if you at least want some sexuality in the photos and the photos are bigger, plus it's only $4.95 a month.
I don't think I can write much more about this site than the pros/cons cover.
This site has been around a long time. The content to me is softer than what I consider softcore. This can be a problem since most of the models start out a set already nude, but never really show anything more than they do in the 1st picture of the set. I do respect that this is the style of site Domai is, but I just can't get that excited over looking at sexy, naked women staring off into space.
There are bright spots here though. The quality of the photos are very good, lots of natural lighting in the outdoor shots, good price, daily updates and if you like using your imagination, this site will really let you do that.
It has been said before so I won't go into it too deeply. There are no videos.
One other thing that is probably just me being used to larger photo sets, the photo sets I have downloaded seem to average between 40-60 photos.
On the positive side because I am going to recommend this site to those looking for softer content, artistic content. The choice of models is very good. I will add that there are some sets that have photos topping out at 3000 long end. If there are others that are bigger, I haven't found them.
There is a package deal to join both Domai and the sister site Goddess Nudes, but the offer I received was for $44.95 for both for 3 months. I just joined Domai for $9.95/mo. then joined Goddess Nudes for $4.95/mo. which equals out to the same price as the multi-month option.
I really can't suggest anything to change except the size of the photos. I'm sure they have established a fanbase that loves this style of nude photos and respect that. As I said in the cons, I would recommend Goddess Nudes over it in a head to head comparison just because the photos are a little more sexual and have higher resolutions. Makes a nice pairing of sites for $15 too.
So, if you're not wanting videos, not wanting anything real sexual and are just looking for some nice quality nude photography, I would recommend it based on the low price. If you're looking for anything more than very soft softcore, I wouldn't recommend it.

- Regan Reese, one of the very few heavily tattooed models I really like. She's the big pro with this site for me.
- Comes with access to four other sites, Jessica Jaymes, XXX Capri, First Class POV and Tanya James.
- There are some nice quality photo sets of Regan, one goes up to 4000 long end on the pictures and all photo sets have zips.
- Video quality is okay at best, but I haven't seen much solo Regan so that's a pro since they have some solo videos.
- The other four bonus sites are pretty good sites. Especially if you like Jessica Jaymes as her site is still updating and has quite a bit of content.
- Webcam archive of Regan's webcam shows
- Surprised me, but there's been a new update listed as 8/7/11, maybe the cons will explain this since in the TBP stats, it hadn't been updating since 2009.
- Going to need a lot of these, will fill the details in in the bottom line.
- Price, $29.95, bonus sites are good, but I joined for Regan's site and have to say $29.95 is about $24.95 too much.
- Photo content numbers have dropped drastically from the TBP stats update and even from Monty222's review in 2009.
- Video quality is not that bad if you don't mind downloading the flash video versions. The resolution is plenty good enough, it's an odd one on most 842 long end. Some are not that good and some drop down in the 468 long end area.
- Possibly removed and recycling content, TBP facts noted that no updates had came since 2009, with decreasing content count and new updates showing up in 2011, it's at least a reason to question if it's being recycled.
- No consistency at all, photo resolutions vary nearly from set to set, same with videos.
- Audio in webcam archive sets comes and goes, which is a big part of webcam sets, especially with a dirty talker like Regan.
(See my comment for updated information)
Regan Reese is the type of model I normally wouldn't be that interested in. While I've said many times that I don't mind tattoos or implants, she has a ton of tattoos and implants. Something about her though that I really liked on a few sets I got of her from Naughty America, maybe it's her curves, her lips. I just found her very attractive.
So I find this site of her. Read Monty222's expired review and combined it with the later updated TBP stats and was more than happy to pay the $30 to get, listed by TBP on 1-5-11 as 75 videos, 83 photo galleries. That's a good amount of content for one model plus the site comes with 4 bonus sites including at least one, Jessica Jaymes that is still updating and has nearly double the content Regan's was listed as having.
In Monty222's review he listed 29 videos and 51 photo sets, and the site was still updating at that time. I trust Monty222 and the TBP stats. The reason I am so trusting there is because this is what the site now has.
41 videos, 22 photo sets. Ahem. How does a site go from 51 photo sets in Monty222's review in 2009 to 83 photo sets in the January 2011 stats update from TBP to 22 in August 2011? I'm not going to accuse them of recycling content, but I think they're recycling.
The reason I think this is the TBP stats update in January 2011 says the site hadn't been updated since 12-2009. Lo and behold, there's a new picture set in August 2011. I'm sorry, but content amount dropping that much, no updates in a year, then new updates start showing up is usually a sign of a site that's removing old content then recycling it as new content. I've been here before with a few other sites.
How is the content that's there? It's good. I would have been very pleased with the content if the number hadn't dropped so much. I'm not real picky about video quality unless it's just impossible to watch. My focus has always been the quality of the model(s). You can give me 10 1920x1080 videos of models I'm not interested in and I'll trade them for 10 640x480 videos of models I am interested in.
The case here though is the content is just not there. Just put the content you removed back up and call it an archive bonus site instead of trying to fool new members into thinking they are getting new updates. I would imagine most people that join this network of solo models join for Jessica Jaymes since it's still updating and even has new webcam episodes. So this site of Regan's is probably just a nice bonus to it.
Where this gets worse. This site is really nice. The filenames are named by the title of the set on the site, how many times have I asked for that? It has probably the best navigation I've seen on a solo model site. It allows one click, by situation, finding of content. Makes it very easy for me to post exactly what is up.
Boy/Girl photosets: 1
Girl/Girl photosets: 6
Group photosets: 4
Solo photosets: 11
Total photosets: 22
Boy/Girl videos: 3
Girl/Girl videos: 4
Group videos: 8
Solo videos: 9
Webcam archive videos: 16
Total videos: 41
To put this in perspective, the total combined content of videos and pictures is 63. In January 2011, it was 158. Maybe someone is confused at the site and thought update meant taking sets down?
I normally will not post a review of a site that I would score below 70 since if it's below 70, it's not likely I'm going to be on it long enough to have a fair view of it. I don't need the time here. Took me 2 hours to download the whole site. The site folder is 7.6 GB. Content itself is very good to great even. If there was 158 total sets, I probably would have went into the mid-80s with my score. I don't care about if a site like this is updating or not. Give me the 158 sets without updates over 63 sets with recycled updates any day of the week.
On a positive note, they do offer three different video formats, wmv, mp4 and flv. In most cases, the FLV files are the highest quality, but I have noticed on the webcam videos the sound will suddenly just stop. I can see her lips moving, but hear nothing. These webcam videos, poor quality and all, are still very good.
Still, take this as a warning to others considering this site. In my 200+ reviews I've only scored one site lower than this one. The webmaster needs to put those other sets back up. If there's a legal reason then I could understand it, but we know it's not an age issue. Seeing that the content on all these sites is "exclusive" I can't see how it could be a copyright issue with possibly another site. It instead looks like the typical remove old, put it back as new, recycle move. If I'm wrong and those sets suddenly re-appear, I'll reconsider my score. Unless you're a huge Regan fan or fan of great navigation, I wouldn't recommend this site.
