Pros: -100s of models from Eastern Europe and South America.
-Cheap privates: most at 1.99 per minute; few at 0.99 or 2.49+.
-All models state in their profile what's OK for them in private.
-Fast navigation and search. Feeds start almost immediately.
-Very good image quality (above average).
-Forum for users to discuss models and review private shows.
-Most models can be seen for free before going private.
-Any surfer may see free shows and participate in free chat.
-6 payment options though none of the usual adult ones.
-Recurring membership option to access additional features.
-Constantly adding new features to improve user experience:
--Mouseover on model at results page to see show preview.
--3 different results views: compact, big thumbnail, text details.
--RSS feed to notify when favorites come online.
--Facebook-like profile page for performers and users.
Cons: -Regional pricing. 50% more expensive in Europe.
-No indication of time spent/credits left while in private.
-Recent chat history/money spent goes back only 15 days.
-Models often wait some time before starting the show.
-Many creepy rooms: dolls, teddy bears, kid decorations.
-Non-exclusive models; found at the same time at other sites.
-Models seem to be mostly at cam studios, not their home.
-Red background is hideous: looks old, makes you wanna run.
-Almost no models from the US or Western Europe.
-Members chat is pointless: models rarely answer.
-Non-members/guests in free chat produce lots of noise.
-Same model may have several different profiles: confusion.
-No recording options for shows.
-Very impersonal. Maybe new facebook style will help.
-Who is Jasmin?
Bottom Line: A recent review here prompted me to give this site a try. I was a bit reluctant initially because, even though they offer up to 6 different payment systems, none was an adult processor I recognized. Also, the weird name of the site and that impossible red background made me feel the site was some relic from the internet cam scene past.

This seems to be, in fact, a very lively cam site and, leaving apart the site's look, one of the most technically advanced I've seen. In fact, they keep on adding features that make browsing and searching for performers more convenient. They have also very recently given a kind of facebook style to the performers profile, integrating in a "wall" the reviews they used to have in separate forum, the model's pictures and presentation, etc and adding some new model-users interaction features. I personally don't see the point since most models aren't exclusive to this site and I doubt they will participate more than they already did but maybe things will change. Users may now also have a profile page stating their tastes, etc. which, if models are able to see it, might be convenient to speed up private shows.

The main drawback I've found in private chats is that you get no indication of time spent and models often take some time before they start the show. Some times, they use the old trick of typing questions for a while. Other times, they keep on going through the free show motions for up to a minute until they suddenly realize they are in private and start the show; I don't know if it's an act or that, since they are obviously working at the same time at several cam sites, the system they have in place doesn't notify them properly or takes some time to close the connections to other sites. It's not a feed delay issue because there's no delay in chat once she acknowledges your presence.

On a side note, even though I noticed many models at other sites simultaneously, all the multi-site models I found had the lowest price per minute at Live Jasmin, even after taking regional pricing into account.

There's also a recurring membership option available that costs 15 USD/EUR every 15 days and gives you some additional features like messaging to performers, being singled out in chats and lifting the favorites cap to 96 from the 24 that non-members get. It's probably not worth the money unless you're really into this site and want an expanded experience.

Pros: -Official site of US porn star Luscious Lopez aka Dasha.
-Exclusive material. Except for solo sites from other models.
-A bit of everything: anal, big tits, interracial, threesomes, ...
-53 main scenes plus their photo galleries and bonus scenes.
-10+ standalone solo Luscious Lopez scenes.
-Max. video resolution: 640x480 WMV, 2000kbps, 20 minutes.
-Interesting BTS content and bonus scenes.
-1600x1200 picture. Zips. 80 per set. 50% landscape.
-Easy access to alternate content from scene (gallery, BTS).
-Release date and small description on most update lists.
-Inexpensive unlimited one week trial.
-ccbill. No regional pricing.
Cons: -Sporadic updates: currently, about 1 new scene per month.
-Good metadata but no search engine or model index.
-Scenes under 4 broad categories: main, solo, bonus and friends.
-No way to find other scenes from models in the scene.
-Pictures' composition is rarely good.
-No interaction with model but an email form and Myspace link.
-No user forum, no webcam chats, no blog, no candids, ...
-Old-looking design even though site is only 2 years old.
-Uninformative free tour: list of 10 most recent updates only.
Bottom Line: I'd been a member a couple years ago and I got a very good impression. I'd been keeping an eye on the update list in the free tour for some time and decided to join when update rate seemed to be catching up speed last summer. Currently, though, it looks like they are back to about one update a month. On a side note, I think it's a mistake that the update list in the free tour is limited to the 10 most recent ones: I'm sure they would make a somewhat better impression if they showed all that's available inside, even if the updates are so sporadic.

The main attraction of the site are the videos. Despite some budget limitations in terms of settings, the cast includes well known models like Gianna Michaels, Kelly Divine, Sara Jay or Sophie Dee to name just 4. There's also a lot of variety in male talent, including top performers like Jack Napier, Marco Banderas or Mr. Pete. No one but Luscious Lopez appears in more than a 3-4 scenes, which is always good. Scenes are also quite diverse. According to some of the BTS scenes and what I've seen around, my guess is that the scenes are only available here or at the solo sites from other cast members. Pictures aren't that well shot on average so, despite the decent size, they serve for little but getting an idea of what's in the video. There are also some somewhat better solo photo galleries without videos.

What stands out the most for me is some of the BTS content. You really get the feel of how they shoot a porno, probably even more than the regular behind the scenes from DVDs. How they care for continuity, how some guy has real trouble staying hard and continuously asks the girls to blow him to get wood, the lengths they go to prepare for a minute of anal scene. Luscious Lopez has an interesting personality and at least you see some of it through this content. Wish the site offered some interaction too.

One thing I liked is that it's possible to find all the related content from a particular scene: video scene, bonus scenes, BTS and various photo galleries are all linked among them. Contrary to similar solo sites which, for some reason, always dump the photos and videos in separate listings and you have to puzzle the pairings by yourself. Even though, it's a pity they have such a broad categorization, listing scenes only under 4 different categories. Scenes' descriptions have an Action section that looks like some quick tagging system ("Anal, POV", "Lesbian, Toys" or "Threesome, Outdoors") but it serves little purpose since they don't have a search engine to exploit that info. At least, they clearly put aside scenes without Luscious Lopez in a friends section.

As far as solo sites of US porn stars that aren't linked to major companies go, this is a pretty reasonable site. If you're interested in seeing interesting never before seen content of Luscious Lopez, going for the trial membership is a no-brainer.

Pros: - Official site of UK glamour model Melissa Debling.
- 5í3Ē, blonde, curvy, big boobs, no tattoo.
- 50+ photo sets. Average 100 photos per set.
- 1200x800 (75%), 1600x1050 (25%). 75% are portrait.
- Solo teasing in casual clothes. Up to topless.
- 60+ videos. 60% photo-shoot BTS, 40% camera teasing.
- Flash format, 720x400. Avg 5 Mbps video rate, 5 minutes long.
- Lots of closeups on boobs and ass in videos.
- One new photo gallery and one new video per week.
- A little bit of interaction: forum, short blog entries.
- Free tour makes me think itís still updating.
- Free tour claims you may now also access other solo sites.
- Shop offers prints, posters and other merchandising.
- Billed by epoch. No regional pricing.
Cons: - Model has recently been tweeting against joining this site.
- Most likely they wonít be updating/online for much longer.
- No metadata on photo galleries, videos (no release date, etc).
- Galleries compressed in RAR format instead of ZIP.
- RARs become available some days after gallery release.
- Slow motion segments, unrelated new-age music on every video.
- Videos are streaming only. No downloads available.
- No link between same sceneís photos, tease video and BTS.
- No webcam chats despite free tour lists the feature.
- No way to privately message the model.
Bottom Line: This is or, more precisely, was the official site of UK glamour model Melissa Debling. Melissa Debling is blonde, petite, curvy and has a phenomenal rack and no tattoos. She has appeared in UK menís Magazines like Nuts and Zoo, on the page 3 of tabloids and also on UK glamour websites like Only All Sites. I was reluctant to join this site after my experience with Official Lindsey Strutt from the same company but her looks made me take the plunge.

The type of content is very similar to that on Official Lindsey Strutt: very tame posing up to topless in casual clothes (almost no pantyhose, thank God). Videos are somewhat better here even though a bit repetitive. You get almost every video twice: as BTS of the photo shoot and as a tease segment. The only difference between the two is that in the tease segment the model looks at the camera while in the BTS she looks at the photographer. Melissa Debling seemed slightly more involved with the site, periodically replying to forum messages and posting short blog entries regularly but Iím pretty sure that has stopped.

Itís unclear whether this site will stay much longer online. Melissa Debling has for some time been warning on Tweeter not to join this site anymore. Even though, I see the site is now offering 3 and 6 month memberships. Free tour shows photo sets that have been released since my membership expired, but it seems unlikely they have enough new material to fill the next 6 months if the model is no longer shooting with them. You do get access to other sites from the company, which I didnít get when I was a member.

I honestly donít know whatís wrong with this company that keeps closing its sites after just a few months life. I was a member of a site from this company that closed without any explanation shortly after I knew about it as a new listing on TBP. Several sites from them are no longer accepting memberships or are plain and simply deleted after a very short time online.

Status: Current Member for over 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: -Free section shows what you will get when you join.
-8 free galleries (non nude work).
-20 fairly good galleries in the pay section (site launched about a couple of months ago).
-Almonst only non-exclusive content but it comes from quality sites (Danni.com, Penthouse, Flaunt Girls).
-Mainly solo glamour sets. 6 girl-girl glamour sets.
-About 2 gallery updates a week.
Cons: -Pictures cannot be saved to disk because a script prevents context menu from appearing (right click and keyboard button).
-No zip files.
-0 videos.
-Horizontal pictures are less than half as big as vertical ones: CMS limits picture's maximum width to 750px regardless of orientation (horizontal: 750x510; vertical:1150x750).
-Small thumbnails: longest axis is 45 px.
-Galleries are not categorized: a single page lists all galleries mixing free and pay, solo and girl-girl, etc.
-Images open in a 500x500 popup screen you must resize every time to get the whole picture.
-Asked to solve a CAPTCHA every time you login.
-24 pictures per gallery (on average).
Bottom Line: This site does technically wrong its main (and currently only) goal: the photo galleries. It could be understandable for a free personal model profile site to prevent people downloading sample images. But this decision on a pay site in 2008 is hard to support.

The CMS (content management system) seems to be used on other sites by RT Web Designs. It looks like this site uses one of the most basic setups (others offer video, better diary options or chatrooms), but all sites seem to share the same photo gallery system. I'd expect similar trouble at those sites' galleries.

On the other hand there's nothing bad about the content. Very little is exclusive but it comes from quality sites like Penthouse or Danni.com and interesting photographers like Misha (from Misha Online) and Lisa Boyle (Flaunt Girls). There are some very good galleries (although also available at other sites).

The model also tries to make the most out of the options she has at hand, keeping a daily update on her work (in the free section) and posting new galleries and samples a couple of times a week.

Despite my low rating, I'd still recommend it to anyone who wants to sample Laura Lee's work but doesn't want to join the 3-4 sites she has worked for so far. I'd also give it some time: current options are limited, but the CMS seems quite flexible and adding video, a chatroom, better diary options or zip sets seems feasible. Adding more exclusive content would also benefit the site's attractive.

Status: Current Member for over 3 months (at the time of review).
Pros: -320 scenes on 10 very different sites.
-15 most recent scenes at 1024x560, 3000 kbps, MP4.
-Remaining scenes at up to 720x480, 1400 kbps, WMV.
-Very good flash player for streaming scenes.
-Good pictures, downloadable in zips (500 pics per scene).
-Great production values. Technically perfect.
-Still a very well-organized site. No additional features, though.
-Currently no download limit. Sustained 250 kbytes/s speed.
-White-label Naked.com webcams included.
-Free tour shows all 320 scenes you find inside.
Cons: -Video downloads not queueable: URLs valid for 2 hours only.
-Only 3 sites updading (2 new scenes weekly).
-No explanations on the drastic reduction in updates.
-No blog, no user forum, no site news, no scene comments.
-Their claim to be offering HD is very debatable.
-Still has metadata issues: mistaken performers or keywords.
-Free tour doesn't show release dates.
-There used to be a download limit earlier this year.
Bottom Line: I didn't expect to come back to this network so soon but I got a cheap cross-sale trial and, when cancelling it, knowingly accepted a multi-month membership at a ridiculously low price. At that time, I thought I had struck a good deal: they were updating 6 times a week and they had added three new sites since my last visit that looked interesting and had the usual hardcore US stars I like. I was very wrong.

The only three sites that have been updating for the last couple months are Molly's Life, Cumfu and Manuel Uncut. Molly's Life is like a metronome every week on Mondays and you get a second scene from one of the other sites every two weeks. This has reduced the update rate from 6 updates per week back in July 2009 to the current meager 2 new weekly scenes. Apart from Molly's Life, I wouldn't take anything for granted, though, because the other two sites have been absent for a month in the past.

Most of the last updates from the other 7 sites date back to June 2009, although some of the sites stopped even earlier. Naked Movie released its 7th and final scene in February 2009, a "Ghost Busters" parody titled "Nut busters" with a stellar cast: Gianna Michaels, Rachel Roxxx, and Shyla Stylez plus Jordan Ash and Voodoo. The three new sites that prompted me to stay were King Dong (a grand total of 24 scenes that wouldn't look like out of place at that other network that has the word Big in all its sites' titles; last update in June 2009), Porn Stars Lick (13 lesbian scenes mostly with boy-girl US stars; last update in September 2009) and Manuel Uncut (34 scenes and counting supposed to revolve around Manuel Ferrara but it looks like he isn't always at home and other guys have to step in to entertain the ladies).

Molly's Life and Cumfu offer what they call HD (1024x560, in fact) and Manuel Uncut still goes with the usual 720x480 despite the couple most recent updates are labelled as HD. Apart from these recent dozen of so-called HD video scenes, the technical aspects of the network have stayed mostly the same. This new resolution is streaming only but you still get to download the full clip WMV at 720x480, split in parts or at lower iPod-friendly resolution. They've also ironed out some minor flaws in their flash player and now it's even more convenient (they got the thumbnail functionality right, etc). Images stay at 900x600 but they still do a pretty good job. Website design hasn't changed a bit but it was very solid to begin with.

Go for the trial or monthly membership since you'll likely find something that will catch your eye. But carefully consider staying longer than a month because things aren't exactly ramping up.

Pros: -New network by Reality Kings. Interface, site design is very similar.
-Currently, 7 sites. Around 120 scenes. Last addition: Naked Movie.
-Did not notice any download limit (got 50 full scenes in 3 days).
-Preview options: trailer and full-episode flash streaming.
-Nice flash streaming option (not available at Reality Kings).
-Content: "sex life" (Molly's Life, Kristin's Life, My Sexy Life), Vignettes (Cum Fu, Footville, It's Real), movie parodies (Naked Movie).
-Video options: full movie (720x480 1400kbps), split in 4 parts and MP4/iPod format (not for Cum Fu).
-Videos are 40 minutes long on average (Naked Movie and "sex life" can go over 60, vignettes around 30).
-Images are 900x600. Zip files. Around 400 pictures per set.
-Good network navigation plus breadcrumbs within updates.
-Users may tag scenes and photos with keywords (keyword set is limited).
-5 updates per week (It's Real updates monthly, rest were updating weekly).
-Full trial when joining Reality Kings.
Cons: -Requires a separate membership from Reality Kings.
-New network. Still few updates and sites.
-Metadata isn't always accurate: missing descriptions, repeated or missing performer names.
-Performers cannot be listed alphabetically, only by release date.
-Flash player could be even better: hard to manage the thumbnail scrolling; became unresponsive some times.
-Ads on every page: integrated into site (only image, but marked as advertisement).
-Half of the sites have nothing but screen captures for pictures.
-I had the feeling downloads were slow. I'm downloading much faster from Reality Kings. Trial related?
-Got a great price deal but had to go through an unknown payment processor.
Bottom Line: On a technology level, the main difference between Muffia and Reality Kings is the addition of a Flash player for all scenes. I didn't start with Reality Kings until my Muffia membership expired and I just can't stand that buggy WMV streaming anymore. I got used to the full scene streaming they offer here and it was perfect to easily find the scenes that were worth downloading. Hope they get the streaming there soon. I didn't come across any 15 full episode download limit like they have at Reality Kings but I downloaded only slightly more per day and I did notice things were coming down slower. Just a feeling, though.

Does this network offer something original? Molly's Life is a spin-off of We Live Together (Molly still appears there every couple weeks) and Kristin's Life is a spin-off from Milf Next Door (Kristen Cameron has 86 scenes there). Didn't check both sites thoroughly but it doesn't look much different from what is already available at Reality Kings. My Sexy Life follows Phoenix Marie around while she has sex with many well known US porn stars. I'd certainly recommend this network to fans of any of these women: you get one new scene of them every week and you'd probably care very little about talking cameramen/camerawomen, abuse of POV and endless introductions as long as your favorite star is there. The remaining sites are very niche sites: "Asian" models in various vignette scenes (Cum Fu), a foot fetish site with euro models (Footville), prosthetics (It's Real) and movie spoofs (Naked Movie).

I don't get this new trend among porn networks of releasing a separate second network that requires an additional membership. I'm sure they know what they are doing but it looks weird. Funny thing is Reality Kings has also released new sites within their original network since they launched Muffia (CFNM Secret or Hot Bush, I believe). I got a really cheap 3-day trial when joining Reality Kings for the first time; otherwise, I'd never have joined this site.

Status: Was a member approx. 2 months prior to this review.
Pros: - 1,000 models online at any time. Many from US, Canada, UK.
- Unusual cam site: each room is different and has its own rules.
- Public chat may have nudity, masturbation, girl- girl action.
- Token packages vary from 0.10 to 0.08 USD/token.
- Same price/minute for all models: private, 60 tokens; spy, 20; group, 10.
- All private shows recorded by the site. Unlimited free replays.
- Archive of all text chats: public, private, group or private messaging.
- Token tips as a currency: videos, panties, skype shows, raffle tickets, ...
- Detailed log of tokens spent: tips, privates or group chats.
- Model profiles often have room rules and contact info (email, twitter).
- May opt to receive free SMS or email when favorites come online.
- Interaction with fellow members: lounge, messaging, watch their cam.
- Ignore option for all guests or basic users or any particular member.
- Models get 0.05USD/token: around 60%; at other cam sites, 30-35%.
- Billed by ccbill or epoch. No regional pricing.
Cons: - Myspace ainít dead: it lives in most models profile layouts.
- Chat allows irritating emoticons and font face/color combinations.
- Very unpolished interface: pop-ups, ugly icons, frames.
- Buggy site: random lags and stutters. Every browser has own issues.
- Site often fails to notify when favorites come online or finish a private.
- ĒTrue privateĒ shows, where no one may spy, cost 80 tokens/minute.
- Lack of categorization: geographic region or model self-tags only.
- Models often ask for 100+ tokens to Private Message them.
- Daily spending limit for new members is too high (300+ USD).
- Very few adult models or porn stars. Almost none is popular here.
- Many models are obsessed with their Cam Score or ranking.
- There doesnít seem to be any policing / moderation.
- Boy- girl shows are not allowed but some models offer them off-site.
- Some members tip obscenely high amounts to models.
Bottom Line: This is a pretty unusual cam site which probably explains its popularity. I have, in fact, seen models who were popular at other sites switch to this one. You do have the chance to take a model private / group as in any cam site. But then there are the tips and the public sex shows for tips.

Some models donít even accept privates; the way they get tokens, apart from the occasional public show, varies from just sitting on public room talking to viewers and thanking them for tips they send out of free will to playing a game or setting up some scheme of their own so people send tokens their way. They may also have some raffle going on, whether itís for an iPod, used panties or, occasionally, a chance to meet them in person. Some take this a step further and bring along their cam while driving, laying on the beach, riding a train or on a plane. And people still tip them. Believe it or not, some of these are quite up in the rankings, meaning they probably make more tokens than others that just do sex shows.

Even though every room is different, site offers models few tools to manage it. Models may set up a room topic (a line of text at the top of the page) and have a profile page where they may explain what they offer at length. But apart from that, site offers nothing but tip collecting. For instance, if she sets a countdown for a public show, she has to notice all tips and subtract them from the goal, using a calculator if needed. Raffles usually require a supply of papers, pencil and a fish bowl: you tip and, if the model notices, writes your name in as many papers as the tip allows and puts them in the fish bowl. Raffle always last for days but thereís no public record of existing raffle tickets.

Public room may also be watched with a free account (basic users) or even with no account at all (guests). Models may block guests (almost always) and basics (frequently) from talking. Since public shows are easily recorded on the userís computer and end up around the Internet, itís not usual for models to add some kind of watermark on their cam feed with their name to get some credit.

While other cam sites try to milk every bit of interaction between members and models, MFC looks the other way when models offer skype shows in exchange for paypal or amazon wish list gifts. Needless to say that email address, twitter account or personal website address will be listed on their profile. Itís not unusual to see models offering to sell used panties, videos, picture sets or even their private phone number for a certain amount of tokens or its equivalent in paypal / gifts. Site also prides itself on giving most of the earnings to models; many models publicly say that they are getting 0.05 USD/token which is around 60% of what users pay; afaik, other sites pay models 35% at most. The downside is that you end up underestimating your tips because itís easier to calculate what the models get (x0.05) than what it costs you (x0.08+).

Status: Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
Pros: -Official Site of Heather Vandeven, Penthouse Pet of the Year 2007.
-30 photosets. 1500x100. 40 pictures per set. 20% landscape. Zip files.
-Photos are mostly solo: mix of glamour, fetish and hardcore (fingers and toys).
-A couple tame girl-girl photo sets.
-17 videos. 640x480 1500kbps. 5-15 minutes long.
-50% of the videos are solo (all Juliland clips).
-50% of the videos are boy-girl hardcore (but NO Heather Vandeven in them).
-Monthly blog. Also available in the free section.
-Site design looks good and is easy to use.
-Inexpensive full access trial membership. Billed by epoch.
Cons: -All photos come from Penthouse (50%), Juliland (20%) or Ken Marcus (20%).
-3 photo sets might be exclusive but look like they were taken some years ago.
-Only one photo update since it was launched 4 months ago.
-50% of the videos are from Juliland.
-50% of the videos are from movie "Aperture" by Michael Ninn.
-Heather Vandeven acts only as voyeur in most of the "Aperture" scenes.
-No interaction with the model. Monthly blog entry but no way to interact.
Bottom Line: Despite my low rating, those wanting a sample of Heather Vandeven content shouldn't hesitate about going for it. She can be found at several other sites than those listed here but with this one you get interesting content from 3-4 sources for a low price although you get nothing new and no interaction with the model. Monthly membership is quite cheap but updates don't seem to be coming at any rate so it doesn't offer any more than a mere trial.

They aren't offering anything new or different. 95% of the content comes directly from other sites or movies, each source having its own different style. It's nice that she can get at her solo site the content she shoots for other people but having no exclusive content at all is hard to justify. The content comes from a couple quality sites, though, and the model is gorgeous and knows how to pose so no complaint regarding the quality of what they offer.

Launching a site with few content and not updating it any more is never a good sign but the site was launched less than 4 months ago so maybe things will get better. The most recent content were videos from the "Aperture" movie. There are a few boy-girl scenes but Heather Vandeven acts only as a voyeur and doesn't get into the action. The further she goes is a hardcore lesbian scene with Carli Banks.

-Access through Muffia. Check my review for specs.
Cons: -Too few updates. Only two new scenes since Jan/2009.
-Most scripts are terrible. Probably, non-existent.
-Extremely long non-sex intros with male performers only.
-All scenes are boy-girl only. No threesomes, no girl-girl.
-Female models get very little screen time: sex scene only.
-Too many second-rate male performers in sex scenes.
-Most acting is extremely bad. Over-acting is commonplace.
-Hard to follow: everyone improvises, talks at the same time.
-Scenes in real life settings: bad lighting, bad sound.
Bottom Line: Porn history in one sentence: from features to gonzo to internet reality. If Muffia wants to reinvent the wheel by going back to features, the least they can do is make it round. What I remember from features is that the girls got most of the screen time both on sex scenes and non-sex scenes, some of them were passable actresses and the guys were always the same but did a good job.

At Naked Movie, the girls only show up for the sex scene. In the rare cases they get some lines, it's obvious they weren't casted for their acting abilities. Guys get 99% of the dialog in non-sex scenes but male casting isn't that good. Ramon has proven a hundred times he's a solid performer but his acting is always debatable and he isn't much better here in the Miami Spice (Miami Vice spoof) episode as a latino drug lord. You get the contrary at Farold And Fubar: a couple of unknown guys deliver slightly passable acting but they aren't up to the task when it comes to the sex scenes even though they are paired with Riley Shy and Kaci Starr. Probably that's the reason why you always got the same guys in feature movies: it's hard to find someone who can act and perform.

Some things might be salvaged, though. The pool sex scene with Kitty Bella and Ramon at Miami Spice is worth watching; pity they are such terrible actors in the non-sex part. The guy that plays the USS Intercourse captain in Star Trix (Star Trek spoof) is passably funny and delivers a decent sex scene with Jayden Jaymes; the whole episode is quite OK. Farold and Fubar shows a bottomless party with several relatively known female models (Jada Fire, Louisa Lanewood, Nika Noire, Nikki Rhodes or Ricki White); unfortunately, you don't get a bottomless lesbian scene but two simultaneous and equally terrible boy-girl sex scenes.

From what I see in the free tour, they seem to have released only two new episodes since I was a member 5 months ago. A promising 2-scene spoof of Ghost Busters (aptly titled Nut Busters) with a stellar cast (Gianna Michaels, Rachel Roxxx, Rachel Starr, Shyla Stylez, Voodoo) and a new 1-scene episode of Star Trix, probably to ride on the wave of the recent JJ Abrams' Star Trek. Miami Spice episode ended with a cliff-hanger "To be continued..." but, according to the free tour, they haven't released more episodes.

I'm not saying you should stay clear from this site. They should, at least, be praised for trying. It's unlikely anyone will join Muffia for this site alone but if you enjoyed some of the original movies/TV series, you might catch some of the ironies (if such ironies exist). If you are more fluent in English than me, you will likely understand them under bad sound conditions.

Pros: -100 models live from all over the world at any given time (10-15 of them from the US). 1000+ listed.
-Extremely easy to use. No over-configuration or infinite types of membership.
-Free chat with video when models are not in private. Sound not always available in free chat.
-All models have rates of 4 or 5 USD per minute.
-All chats are flash-based. Image and sound rate varies depending on model's connection.
-1 on 1 private chats resolution is 620x450. Image quality could be better (some pixelation).
-Credits can be bought while in private chat. Somewhat buggy, though.
-Option to automatically purchase credits when you run out.
-"Homemade movies" (separate membership) gives access to shows recorded by models.
-Add to favorites feature for up to 24 performers for easily finding them when online.
-Cam on cam available.
Cons: -No account of cam credits bought or when and who you spent them with.
-Too few categories. No porn star or couples category.
-Not possible to record the shows.
-Free membership requires giving out credit card details. It is really free, though.
-Unknown billing provider. Site knows and keeps your credit card details.
-Some of the models can also be found at other sites. Cam studios?
-"Alert when model is online" feature is buggy: not available for all models and at-sign is illegal email character!!
-Some of the foreign cam studios look really cheesy; sometimes other performers can be heard nearby.
-Certain amount of models aren't that attractive or wear unsexy clothes.
-No internal message system: no way to contact models privately to request special shows.
-Canceling for "Homemade movies" only through email.
-Some of the recorded shows require paying for them.
-Few models do "shows": multiuser access at lower price.
Bottom Line: Free membership gives you access to free video chats with all models. I went for it several months ago because I wanted to chat with a certain porn star. I eventually gave up because that model was never online at Europe-friendly times. Recently, I was checking the prices of the site and inadvertently bought some credits and a membership to "Homemade movies". They weren't showing my card details but they already had them since that "free" membership and the page wasn't clear that clicking that button completed the purchase using my credit card. Perhaps it was a mistake on my part because I'm used to the various steps of sites that use ccbill or epoch.

I feel the site lacks categorization. Some of the models have male partners around for the show but unless they choose to display him in their profile picture it's impossible to know. Cam sites should put this type of shows in a category of its own. I feel the same about models who have done some porn; see my comment from 02-04-09 for some models I was able to tell apart.

The site has also some annoyances. For some reason, question marks and other punctuation signs are deemed illegal in the free chat which makes asking questions or entering smileys impossible. This doesn't happen in 1-on-1 private chats, though. Even worse, when you enter your email to be reminded when a model comes online, you cannot type the at-sign. In any case, you can work around the issue via clipboard (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V). You also have to enter your email address for every model that you want to be alerted when she comes online.

I also had trouble once when trying to buy credits while on a show. Everything works if you wait until you're almost out of time: they pop up a panel asking for confirmation. But once I forced the panel to show but couldn't act on the buttons. Bottom line: buy credits before or wait for the panel to show on its own.

Naked.com can be found under several other domains but the design is always very similar. I also found it embedded inside Reality Kings cams section; your Reality Kings user name becomes the same at Naked.com but no password is needed. Didn't try buying credits through that user name.

Most models update regularly their sample photos (small as in any cam site: 250x150px) but rarely bother to change their default text for Biography, Kinky Things, Add-ons, Turn-offs or Turn-ons; they all read "I am a very friendly person looking to meet people online! Come and visit my erotic private show!" and "I am Shaved".

Status: Was a member approx. 2 months prior to this review.
Pros: -Official site of Canadian, LA-based porn star Nikki Benz.
-Easy to use; good content categorization.
-175+ video scenes (54 sets), mostly from DVDs. 15 minutes on average.
-Video categories: 65% boy-girl, 20% girl-girl, 15% solo.
-5 thumbnails per video set: nice for single files but not useful for whole movies split in 10 files.
-200+ picture galleries, 80 images per set, zipfiles, dated, picture count stated.
-Photo sets: 30% solo, 30% candids, 20% girlfriends, 10% boy-girl, 10% girl-girl.
-Professional photography, stylism, elaborate settings. A few Matrix HD but others must be exclusive.
-30% of photo sets published in last 6 months. Not all shot recently.
-Cool search function for pictures and videos: clothing type, clothing color and scenario.
-Long blog entries with pictures (1-2 times a week).
-Model is answering all questions members post in the message board.
-Free tour lists most recent updates. Also has a detailed calendar (feature dancing, shoots, travels).
-ccbill.
Cons: -Low download limit: as soon as you download 1Gbyte, you get blocked for 6 hours.
-Expensive for a solo model site.
-Pictures are somewhat small. 50% are 1200x800; 50% are 1024x700 or lower.
-Most videos are and look very low-resolution. 70% are 320x240 (400kbps), 20% are 512x384 (650kbps).
-All videos but a couple recent ones are non-exclusive (come from DVDs).
-Although, according to Nikki Benz posts in message board, she has shot new content, I was only able catch 1 new video.
-Free tour hints she might do cam shows but she currently doesn't.
-Content from other models is mixed with Nikki Benz-only content and diminishes the good impression of the site.
-For instance, I believe girl-girl scenes without her should be listed under girlfriends category and not girl-girl.
-Album / Favorites is broken: all members probably share the same favorites and thumbnails don't work there.
Bottom Line: Looks like Nikki Benz recently regained control of her site. I was a member about a year ago and I feel the core video content is still the same, though. Release dates of video updates are most prior to 2007 except for a handful of DVDs that have been posted this year. Recent content this year has consisted mainly of picture sets although I am not sure they were shot recently: Nikki Benz had her boobs redone earlier this year and she is still sporting the "old" ones in these sets. 20+ solo sets (professional / high-end glamour with toys and masturbation) or 20+ candid ones (outings, parties, conventions).

On the other hand, according to her blog, calendar and posts in the message board, she's been shooting new content. I only had time to catch a solo anal masturbation update but it was pretty good: high-end location, good performance, well-lit, decent camera work. It was a 6 minutes 640x480 (4000kbps) WMV file so this will probably the standard for new content that will be released in the immediate future (probably right now).

The tour claims the site has her entire collection of movies. I did some research and there's probably everything she did while under contract with Pleasure Productions (videos from 14 movies here) and Jill Kelly (10). Other videos I could identify were from Zero Tolerance On Demand (5), Diabolic (3), Third Movies / 3rd Degree (3), Wicked Pictures (1) and Vivid (1). According to iafd, she has appeared in 86 titles. The tour also claims that most video content is exclusive. This is also currently not true as these DVDs are the main video content. This will change as the new content is uploaded. As I said, new content looks quite promising.

All in all, I got the impression she is pretty busy (feature dances across the US almost every weekend and shoots adult videos several times a month) but still manages to get back to site members via her blog a couple times a week and reply to all message board questions. Site is updated several times a week with new Nikki Benz content so I really don't see why they also release so many content from other models and mix it with her content.

Status: Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
Pros: -Official site of gorgeous UK glamour model Lindsey Strutt.
-Great looking all natural model. No tattoos, no piercings.
-Nice choice of clothing, lingerie and accessories.
-Model always ends posing topless. But no full nudity.
-Content looked original and exclusive to me.
-70 image sets. Average 80 images per set. 85% vertical.
-6 sets with Kayleigh Pearson or Staci Noblett. Rest, solo.
-Image sizes: 45% 850x567, 45% 1200x800, 10% 1600x1065.
-30 BTS videos. Specs vary a lot.
-Update schedule shown in a calendar.
-Currently updating photos and videos at these rates:
--1 new photo gallery every 6 days at 1600x1065.
--1 new wmv video every 6 days at 1920x1080 8500 kbps.
Cons: -No update metadata: no release date, no update name, etc.
-Image galleries are not available to download in zip format.
-Useless image thumbnails: all look either distorted or blurred.
-Inconsistent video formats and file naming.
-Only one format available per video.
-New HD videos are pillarboxed (aka reverse letterboxed).
-No video previews but a single thumbnail in the listing page.
-No interaction at all with the model.
-No webcam chats although announced to start 6 months ago.
-Useless message board: model logged just once to answer.
-Pointless diary option: candid photos with no caption at all.
-No information on who the model is (for those new to her).
-No access to other sites from this company.
Bottom Line: I came across this site because of the new listings section at The Best Porn. I had never heard of the model and I knew almost nothing about the glamour business in the UK but I liked her looks and decided to take the plunge.

I like the photos. She basically wears either bikinis by the pool or bra and panties indoors. Nice, simple sexy lingerie and none of those pantyhose that seem to be so popular in UK erotica. I cannot say the pictures are technically excellent (Iím not very savvy but I felt there were some lighting issues and too many similar shoots within a set) but, for a change, I enjoyed watching a beautiful woman with a perfect bust posing in sexy lingerie that didnít make her look too young or too slutty. I donít mind that she never shows anything below the waist but this could be an issue for some.

Videos, on the other hand, offer little. Leaving aside the fact that there are endless combinations of format (flv, mov, wmv - a couple of them are even offered compressed in RAR format for unknown reasons-), resolution (from as low as 384x288 up to 1920x1080 -but letterboxed from an original in 4:3 format also for unknown reasons-) and bitrate (from FLVs at 200 kbps to MOVs at 30,000 kbps), the ones I managed to play without stuttering on my not-so-old computer were basically 1 minute BTS clips with superimposed music. I believe Iíd have gotten a better impression had the site offered no videos at all.

As for the interaction, I came out of the site knowing as little about Lindsey Strutt as before. An ďAbout MeĒ section explaining who she is would have been welcome for those who are not in the UK. For instance, the diary section had some pictures of her with a bunch of soldiers. Turns out Lindsey Strutt went to Iraq to visit the troops as a spokesperson for UK magazine Nuts but I didnít learn about it here. Thereís no point in offering so many interaction options in the siteís menu (webcam chat, diary, message board) if you then make a half-hearted attempt at it or have an ďunder constructionĒ sign for a year.

In the end, looking at this and the other site from the same company I checked (Official Staci Noblett, no longer listed here), Iím under the impression the models are more interested in posing for magazines than working for their own site. At least for me, itís not worth staying a member of a solo site if I donít feel the girl is a bit involved in it. There are other good looking UK models Iíd never heard of who have a site with this company but, given the precedents, Iím afraid Iíll have to pass.

Status: Was a member approx. 2 months prior to this review.
Pros: -USA porn stars trying on panties but rarely having sex.
-Cumshot always on panties/ass/back of model.
-100% exclusive original unique content.
-Some big names, like Courtney Cummz or Jenna Haze (2 scenes).
-Some attempts at reality porn: simple scripts and locations.
-60+ videos. WMV or Quicktime in various resolutions.
-Max resolution: 65% 854x480 2000kbps; 35% 640x480 1000kbps.
-Video length varies a lot: from 4 up to 30 minutes.
-18 photo galleries: 75% 1200x800; 25% 600x400.
-100 pictures on average per set; 50% landscape, 50% portrait.
-Full access to other sites from this company (not updating).
-Free tour lists all updates with release date and trailer.
-ccbill.
Cons: -Erratic updates: 1 in Jan/09, 1 in Feb/09, 3 in Mar/09.
-Very little pussy penetration: handjob or blowjob at most.
-For a panties site, there's too much emphasis on blowjobs.
-Very few of the models masturbate; lots of panty touching.
-Most scenes are POV; last scene had a cameraman, though.
-Always the same guy; he talks a lot.
-Guy often jerks himself off for a long time to finish scene.
-Not enough panty variety: same panties in some scenes.
-Panties not always match bra; most of the time, no bra at all.
-Regional pricing.
Bottom Line: I came across Panty Pops while browsing the Panties niche section here. I'll try to join some of the sites but this was the first one, mainly because I knew most of the USA stars, it had a low price and network access. Scenes are always very similar: there's a model and a pile of a dozen panties; she teasingly tries on some of them, following instructions from the guy that is filming her; the guy takes out his cock and some blowjob and cock-panties interaction ensues. Absolutely no penetration except a handful of scenes.

I don't get why there's so little penetration. It's not that the site is deceiving since it's true to its name: the guy eventually pops on the panties and ass, with the model always lying flat on her stomach. It's the fact that all models are seasoned porn stars who have done lots of regular boy-girl scenes. It looks weird to see the guy not pull the panties apart and get down to business. That's what I was hoping to see but it happens in less than 10% of the scenes. On the other hand, almost every scene contains some blowjob. Since this site seems to be a one man job (performing, filming, editing, etc), I couldn't help but think it is just an excuse for this guy to enjoy some quality time with a few USA porn stars. Are blowjob-only rates lower?

Another thing I found weird was the panties reuse from scene to scene. Looks like the guy buys them by the dozen at Victoria's Secret (lots have the Pink collection logo) but he makes them last for several scenes; many of them are tried on by 4 or 5 different models. It looks cheap since they are probably bought for less than 5 USD each; it also brings a sense of déja vu. Models must have some panties of their own: why not ask the models to bring them on set and try them on camera? That would bring a higher variety of panties to the scenes and they may also have matching bras.

Despite its shortcomings, I feel the content is very unique, the cast is often stellar and it's more than decently produced and packaged to recommend it to anyone interested in this niche. Don't expect much from the other sites in the network: they are no longer updating; there were also a couple more sites that have been taken down and are not accessible any more.

Status: Was a member approx. 6 months prior to this review.
Pros: - Official site of US-resident, Hungarian adult model Anita Dark.
- Site has been running for about 10 years.
- Free section shows exactly what youíll get inside.
- All updates are dated.
- Newest videos (10%) at 800x452, WMV, 1000kbps.
- Content categorized in solo, girl-girl, boy-girl. Further subdivisions.
- Schedule of upcoming photo sets and videos.
- Still one of the most beautiful women in porn.
- ccbill.
Cons: - Low quality in old videos: 1-2 minute 320x240 MOVs.
- Very small images : 99% at 800x535.
- No Zip files for images.
- Other modelsí sets mixed with Anita Darkís (specially in boy-girl).
- Membership doesnít grant you additional interaction with model.
- Looks like interaction was much better in the past.
- Latest sets often consist of self-shot fixed-camera pictures.
- No webcam chats for members.
- No access to the other site from this company: Anitaís Angels.
- Regional pricing.
Bottom Line: This is the official site of Anita Dark, an Hungarian adult model that has been working in solo and girl-girl porn in the US for a long time but who got started in porn doing boy-girl in Europe more than 10 years ago. She has had this site for around 10 years.

Updates have been coming throughout these 10 years so thereís a lot of it even though most content shows its age mainly due to its very low resolutions. There are hundreds of videos but those released up until recently are almost unwatchable at present due to its tiny 320x240 size. This is specially harsh in her old boy-girl scenes, available in 1-2 minute segments in mov format at a very low bitrate. You get about 40 boy-girl scenes, though. On a side note, sheís currently doing boy-girl cam shows at Streamate.com on a regular basis.

Video quality has improved recently (around 30 videos at 800x452); short 3-4 minutes videos, mainly fixed camera strip teases indoors or BTS of outdoors shoots, also fixed camera. Not the best lighting conditions and techno music throughout so nothing spectacular. Pictures resolution hasnít improved and everything is still 800x535.

Interaction with Anita Dark through the site is currently almost non-existent: no forum, no webcam chats, no blog. Free section has a very generic news section (Happy Easter, Merry Christmas, etc) and lists her personal email although an inquiry I made to it while being a member wasnít answered. I feel members webcam chat would be pretty easy to set up. Itís funny that sheís pretty active on twitter, often promoting her site, but thereís no link here to her twitter account.

A couple years ago, I reviewed Club Anita and mentioned that, comparing Club Anitaís update list with the free section of Planet Anita, it looked like Club Anita had the same content as Planet Anita but was being released at a later time. The thing is, around Christmas, I found a very recent-looking sample Christmas-themed gallery of Club Anita which wasnít available here, neither as a previous year update. Planet Anita is the site Anita Dark is promoting as her official site but I really donít know which of the two sites is better to get the most recent content of Anita Dark and at the best resolution.

Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: -Access to 9 sites in the network. See facts at TBP. Total 400+ scenes.
-A couple more sites have been added recently: Sleep Creep, Flexible Positions.
-Free tour pages correctly list all updates at the sites with dates.
-Very good navigation system: easy access to all sites from everywhere.
-Breadcrumbs let you move around quickly within a set or the whole network.
-Search option finds matching performers and set descriptions.
-Every set has video, picture gallery and screencaps.
-Videos are 35 minutes long. Max resolution: 512x288 (1200kbps).
-Multiple video options: stream, flash, 1 minute clips, full video or chunks download.
-Photos are 850x567. Zip files. Up to 600 images per set.
-100 screencaps per set help get a quick idea of the video.
-Users can rate sets (1-10 stars). There's also a favorites section.
-Female models are usually pretty well known porn stars.
-All sites but Euro Humpers are being updated. 6-7 network updates a week.
Cons: -Very low download speed. Usually, 100 kbytes/s. Never beyond 200 kbytes/s.
-Downloads cannot be resumed.
-Somewhat low resolutions. Although videos look quite good anyway.
-No downloads completed with Firefox 3. Had to use IE7.
-3 ads for Brazzer's Network, Reality Kings and other networks on every single page.
-Pictures in the ads are much bigger than set thumbnails/previews.
-Regional pricing: price for EU users is 25 EUR (40 USD).
-Some models are listed with wrong or only partial names. Or listed twice.
-Sets with two models cannot be found listing all sets of each one.
-Model name list is in reverse alphabetical order!?
Bottom Line: This is intented to be a technical description of the network. The content is technically homogeneous but the genres are quite diverse: girls having sex with guys sporting huge fake plastic cocks (Freaks Of Cock), alleged teens (18 Years Old), fake personal sex tapes (Real Ex Girlfriends), an intended comedic/ass centered one (40 oz Bounce) or a deepthroat focused one (Deep Throat Love) to name a few. I'll try to add reviews/comments in the future to some of the sites in the network.

Despite the technical issues, I enjoyed my subscription. Networks' sites are usually just an excuse to put the models in different settings but here you get quite different type of sites. You'll probably find the same models as in any other US network, though. If you are interested in joining one of the sites, I'd suggest joining through this to access them all, just in case. The free tour lists all sets you can find inside and you get image and video previews. Worth checking out first to get a feel.

The reason why there are huge ads of three other networks on every page is beyond my understanding. I am determined to check Brazzer's Network ASAP. And Reality Kings. I enjoyed Porn Pros Network quite a lot but there must be a reason why they try so hard to sell me those other networks. It's unlikely they have worse download speeds.

Pros: -4,500 DVDs total. 4 new DVDs added daily.
-40+ exclusive reality sites. But only 3-4 updates per week.
-Both real photos and screen captures from DVD scenes.
-Video high resolution is Divx (xvid codec): 576x432 2000kbps.
-Also available as WMV (480x360 1000kbps) or low resolution MP4.
-Cool and pretty accurate "find similar stars" features.
-Decent metadata: female and male cast, production date.
-Simple search engine but seems to be pretty accurate.
-Free tour shows everything you will find inside.
-Download Pass and Mega Site Pass under a single membership.
Cons: -Very low speed: rarely over 100 Kbytes/s; often much less.
-Download managers, futile: links die fast and are non-resumable.
-DVD scenes renamed to custom scene description in search results: no info on what DVD they come from.
-Featured star hides DVD info.
-Inconsistent page design: featured vs search vs non-featured.
-Too simple streaming: play, pause, skip are the only options.
-Some of the reality scenes may also be found at DVD sites.
-Like most DVD sites, there's a huge overlap with other sites.
-Somewhat small images: longest axis is only 1024px.
-ZIP files have always 25 pictures regardless of gallery size.
-Site design looks outdated compared to similar sites.
-Download Pass or Porn.com watermarks on all videos.
-Gay and transexual content intermixed in search results.
-Case-sensitive CAPTCHA login. Sessions timeout in minutes.
Bottom Line: First time I heard of Porn.com was probably when the domain sold for 9.7 million USD in 2007. I came across it some time ago while browsing for discounts at TBP. I guess people who type Porn.com or just Porn directly on their browser's address bar are the main visitors.

This site tries to be a lot of things but, in my humble opinion, they get it wrong more often than right. Like their new picture search engine: looks pretty cool and well-thought out but, in the end, you get 1024px big photos and zip files with only a sample of the gallery. In general, I feel they should rethink how they display the information in search results and porn star pages.

Porn.com was painfully slow for me. What's worse, you get only one chance to download a video: once you start downloading, the URL is instantly dead for retries so resuming a paused download is not possible. On top of it, querying downloads is neither an option since URLs change every hour or so. Streaming speed isn't good either: you must hit pause and wait for a long time if you want to avoid eating up the buffer. There was an entry at their official blog on 03/20/09 entitled "Porn.com gets porn fast" [sic] that contained a very true sentence: "I urge you to free your porn from slow downloads!!". Roger. Canceling my membership was quite easy.

Another thing I didn't like about Porn.com was the Featured Star option. Good side is they often get some exclusive footage and video interview; bad side is that, once a star becomes featured, her page gets an unusable layout where there's no information on what DVDs her scenes come from, just those absurd scene descriptions that seem to be a trademark of this site. To top it all, streaming interviews of featured stars are non-pausable and, because of the slow speed, it's impossible to view them but in short unintelligible bursts.

Despite all this, if they solved the speed issues (speed for American users is likely better than those I got in Europe) this would be a recommendable site by its sheer amount of content even though, as in any DVD site, there's a huge overlap with what other companies offer; average production date seems to be a bit older than usual and there's not a lot of very recent content but this could easily be a pro for some.

Some of the reality scenes aren't that exclusive since they have been released as DVDs and are available at any big DVD website (Whale Tail 'N, for instance). What I could see of Brother Undercover seemed an interesting politically incorrect twist on the interracial genre.

- Images are 480x320. 8-10 per scene. All landscape.
- Mobile-friendly image slideshow implementation.
- Videos: MP4 400x224 (800 & 300bps), 3gp 352x288 (300bps).
- All videos also available in 8 parts (highest resolution only).
- Video parts have representative thumbnails.
- Links to mobile versions of official blog and twitter.
- Scenes grouped by site, category, stars or date order.
- Ads for other sites don't get in the way.
- No need to login on every visit.
Cons: - They claim 6,000+ scenes but ďonlyĒ have around 2,200.
- Fixed 320px site width. May look small on newest devices.
- Only 10 images per scene.
- Older scenes have no pictures or not all video formats.
- No scene trailers but mobile free tour has them.
- Search function doesnít work for model names.
- On scene page, no info on which site it comes from.
- Video and images resolutions may be too low for newest devices.
- Several minor bugs make the experience less pleasing.
- Pictures don't work in light version.
- Nags as in main site: scene recycling, model identification, etc.
Bottom Line: This is the mobile version of US reality porn site Porn Pros Network. Itís a simple yet complete site, good for checking new updates and for the occasional viewing. Things go increasingly bad in older scenes: as you go backwards in time, you start finding scenes with no photos, videos or any content at all. As I've said in the past speaking of mobile porn sites from other networks, I donít think itís worth signing up just for the mobile site but it's a nice addition to the main membership.

The picture part is remarkable even though they offer 10 images per scene at most. Instead of mimicking whatís usually available in non-mobile sites (hundreds of images, many of them almost identical, in a thumbnail gallery) they go for a slideshow with the most representative landscape ones. A single orientation is good because you donít have to keep rotating your phone to make the most of your screen real estate. Images donít seem to be picked at random and I was under the impression that not all images were also available in the main site. Next image is automatically preloaded and clicking next loads image without refreshing page, so getting an idea of what kind of images the scene has is fast. You may get back to the main scene page by a simple back button click. All around, a simple but thought-out functionality.

Video viewing is fairly well done. Iíd appreciate getting trailers, tough. Just as viewing 10 images serves great for sampling the pictures from an update, it would make sense if they offered in the members section the trailers that are already available in the mobile free tour. Trailers are also available inside main members area.

Flaws from the main site crept into the mobile version. Scenes that the main site recycles get recycled here too. My pet peeve is the lack of proper model identification. They only have room for one model name; with luck, one of the models gets her name entered but some scenes get just two first names. The mobile site has flaws and bugs of its own, like some weird issues with the numbering in galleries and failing to identify in a scene page what site it comes from.

There are some extras that make sense in a mobile site. Thereís a twitter feed of the most recent tweets from PornPros official account, although thereís something wrong with its integration with the official Twitter App. They also have a mobile optimized version of their blog and the BTS videos played without issues on my phone.

Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: -Official website of Indian born US based porn star Priya Rai.
-All content is shot exclusively for this site.
-13 1800x1200 solo galleries. 75% portrait, 25% landscape.
-Big 230x185 thumbnails. Pictures also available at 900x600.
-Professional makeup, sexy clothes, nice settings, decent shooting.
-11 1200x720 8000kbps WMV movies: 6 solo, 4 boy-girl, 1 girl-girl.
-No music in videos apart from some occasional short intros.
-Videos also available in flash streaming at 576x324.
-Access to Private Camz shows.
-ccbill. Cheap fully working 3-day trial.
[Current update rate]
-1 new photo gallery or video every week.
-Short diary entries without pictures twice a week.
-First live cam show scheduled on February 23rd.
-List of last updates available in free tour.
Cons: -Site launched a month ago. Still few content and some design issues left.
-Slow update rate: only 1 photo gallery or video per week.
-No zip file for pictures.
-Pictures are solo only.
-All scheduled updates until April are solo.
-No lower resolution versions of videos available for download.
-She moans too much in videos. Sounds and acts a bit too fake.
-Managed by Aziani but no access to other sites from the company.
-Site design is a bit too plain.
-Interaction is limited to comments in diary entries. Cam shows are coming.
-No behind the scenes content.
-No direct internal messaging to model: Site Admin is the only available recipient.
Bottom Line: I remember first noticing Priya Rai when she was doing solo softcore stuff. A couple years ago she started doing boy-girl. I might have seen some of the scenes but never been a real fan of hers. The site spiked my curiosity when I saw it had exclusive material and Aziani was involved. The video on the home page where she's seen deepthroating and the trial option closed the sale for me.

Videos look really good. Picture quality is excellent and you get none of that porn music so you can hear the model talk, moan and spit; you can even hear the sound of her vibrators. She usually masturbates with dildos in solo ones. The boy-girl ones attempt to be reality scenes: 3 in a sex therapist series and rewarding a pizza delivery guy. I admit acting is as bad as anywhere else, she moans a bit too much and she has a penchant for spitting which might not be your cup of tea.

As long as they have that trial, I'll recommend it to anyone who's enjoyed watching any of her reality scenes. There are worse ways to spend your money. The main drawback is the slow update rate. It's even worse when you find out they have scheduled releases up to April and they plan on keeping this weekly rate. A solo site that has only one update per week right after its launch is hard to support. I wouldn't recommend staying longer unless you are a real fan and will be able to enjoy the shows or the interaction.

Panties fanatic bottom line: I noticed she was wearing the exact same panties in 3 out of the 8 sets where she does wear panties. It's weird because they pay a lot of attention to makeup, jewel accessories and elaborate wardrobe in general. I also wish there weren't so many panties-less sets: it's weird to see her get out of a business suit or a dress and have no panties on.

Status: Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
Pros: - Official site of US adult model Ashley Jane aka Pure Ashley.
- All natural, no tattoos, couple piercings, hair dyed blond.
- Most content seems original and exclusive.
- 38 videos: 22 solo, 15 boy-girl, 1 girl-girl. 15 minutes on average.
- Video resolution: 720x480. WMV (1500kbps) or MP4 (900kbps).
- Videos available in streaming and download format.
- Videos are very diverse. Nice use of lingerie in many of them.
- Videos have no music. No one but the model utters a sound.
- 10+ solo galleries. 1,200 pictures. 1200x800. 90% portrait.
- Ashley Jane has done very little boy-girl outside this site.
- Much more fingering than toys in solo content.
- Blog updated a couple times a month with short entries.
- Cam shows allegedly taking place twice a week at 10pm EST.
Cons: - All videos are letterboxed and somewhat dark.
- Currently migrating to a new site interface. New and old available.
- Videos may be found only at old, only at new or at both sites.
- MP4 videos at the new site are at a lower bitrate: worse quality.
- New site features like scene rating or search donít work at all.
- Canít confirm chat schedule due to time zone differences.
- Cam shows are not archived.
- No updates in the last month.
- No zip files for photos.
- Non-descriptive file names in most videos.
Bottom Line: Pure Ashley is the official site of American adult model Ashley Jane. A 23 years old all natural girl with no tattoos but dyed hair and a couple piercings: clit and navel. Nice personality. She has also worked for other companies since 2009 doing solo, girl-girl and BDSM scenes and very little boy-girl content.

I enjoyed the videos a lot. Likely filmed by her boyfriend, who often joins in the action in POV. Thereís no fixed structure in the videos but Ashley Jane almost always starts explaining whatís going on, like what sexual craving she has at that moment, and she usually keeps talking to the camera through the video. The cameraman has the good sense of not uttering a word ever in reply which makes the videos even more enjoyable. He doesnít even moan when cumming. She does moan a lot but not so much as to feel unnatural. Lots more fingering than toys in solo scenes. Lots of blowjobs but also intercourse, handjobs and even a couple footjobs. I specially liked some boy-girl videos filmed in a sneaky manner: at a sex shop booth, in a dressing room at the mall after trying on some sexy panties or at a private poolís toilet. Sheís not shy of doing anal or swallowing occasionally.

The downside of the videos is that they are all dark and letterboxed to fit 4:3 format, which means lots of black bars when viewed in a widescreen monitor. The lighting issues go well with the flair of those scenes filmed in hiding but it doesnít make any sense in those filmed at home.

All photos are solo strip tease from sexy clothes ending in fingering. While searching for more content from Ashley Jane, I found out some of the sets are also available at ATK Premium sites : ATK Petites, at least. The girl-girl video also seems to come from a shoot for ATK.

Site currently has both an old and a new version. After logging in, you go to the old site and have a small link to the new one on top. The new version has a nicer interface, good previews and content is divided in categories but still has issues. MP4 videos at the new site look worse due to lower bitrate. I kept the WMV versions from the old site. New updates only appear at new site.

Regarding interaction, itís hard for me to tell. Webcam section announces weekly chats but they are scheduled in the middle of the night in my timezone and are not archived so I donít know if they are taking place. Some blog entries suggest they took place in the past but also that there were issues. Free tour lists a twitter and a facebook account but both have been shut down recently.

I canceled because they didnít update while I was a member. Not even a blog post showing site is still active. It doesnít look good either that Ashley Jane has disappeared from the social network scene. Iíd have stayed if they had released a new video weekly but Iíd appreciate if they could solve the technical problems in them: no letterboxing, more light and higher bitrate.

Status: Current Member for over 1 year (at the time of review).
Pros: - Mobile version of porn network Reality Kings.
- All new Reality Kings videos and pictures are available.
- Accessible with regular Reality Kings membership.
- Choose Big, Medium or Light layout to better use device capabilities.
- Quite usable site: page elements are easy to tap.
- They seem to be actively working to improve it.
- 3 video options: MP4 480x270 800kbps, MP4 320x180 300kbps and 3GP.
- Trailers for all scenes released.
- Pictures available at 900x600 (same size as in the regular site).
- Easy to browse latest scenes released.
- Find older scenes through model index, category list or text search.
Cons: - ďBigĒ site layout lacks various features available in ďLightĒ or ďMediumĒ.
- Only 6 scenes per page is a bit too few. Iíd rather scroll than tap.
- Updates with 2+ models list previous scenes from just one of them.
- Not all old scenes are available: 30% less scenes than regular site.
- Lots of room for improvement in picture browsing.
- Picture thumbnail files are not optimized for the mobile site.
- No screencaps browsing. No favorites feature.
- 1080p videos are not available. Some devices might use them?
- Big ads for other sites at the bottom of each page.
Bottom Line: I really like Reality Kings content. Iíve had a recurring membership for over a year to their regular site and every week I find several scenes that I enjoy. Since my Reality Kings login and password work for this mobile version, I decided to give it a try.

Iíve found myself using Reality Kings Mobile occasionally with my phone to check what new scenes had been released recently. Navigation is quite good and itís easy to tap on links, buttons and images. Next and previous page buttons are the only ones I found a bit too narrow. Iíve stayed so far with scene description pages and pictures while on data connection. A single video would eat up my high-speed data quota.

The site has its glitches. Most of the cons listed are just slight annoyances but itís surprising that the ďBigĒ layout doesnít have the option to show scenes in chronological order: home page doesnít show the last ones released but what they deem most popular instead. ďBigĒ has all kinds of flashy navigation elements but lacks what I feel is the most useful feature. I always use ďMediumĒ for that reason.

But they do seem to be actively working on it. For instance, until recently, you only got the last 6 scenes released on the home page and you couldnít navigate to previous updates as you may do at Reality Kings regular site. Now thereís an option to keep browsing back: itís 735+ pages at 6 updates each but, if youíve missed 3-4 days of updates, you may find those scenes with a single tap instead of being completely ignorant of them. Also, I havenít had any issue with trailers recently even though, when I first tried, I kept getting the same wrong trailer for every scene.

Since I mainly use this site for picture browsing, Iíd really like if they could improve that area. My three wishes are: mobile optimized thumbnails, easy access to key points in the scene and next/previous picture buttons.

I wish they generated mobile optimized thumbnails to speed up access on a data connection: they are using the exact same thumbnails as on the regular site reducing them to a smaller size through HTML only. Pity. Also, I donít mind many repeated images in a gallery but, when browsing images on the regular site, I often jump a couple pages to see how the girl fares at blowjob or how she looks fully nude; here, you may only jump one page at a time, which makes getting to the cumshot pictures almost impossible. Last, I wish they had some way to move back and forth through the gallery from the full size images; right now, you have to keep hitting the back button because full size images are dead ends with no links.

If you plan to watch videos, connect to it via wifi or keep in mind what limits your data plan contract has because, although they are mobile optimized, the bigger ones easily get to 200 Mbytes.

Status: Was a member approx. 2 months prior to this review.
Pros: -Official site of US model Sandee Westgate.
-Ellaborate shoots at high end locations. Great stylism.
-Solo sets usually include spreads, fingering, dildo play.
-290 solo galleries. 60 girl-girl sets with known models.
-Photos: 40% 1200x800, 60% 1050x700. 75% portrait.
-150 solo videos. 16 girl-girl ("Sandee's Girls" series).
-Latest videos at 960x544, 4800 kbps, 5 minutes.
-Great involvement of the model in the site.
-24/7 office spy cam. Occasional interaction with camera.
-Release date and small description on most update lists.
-No longer DRM. Used to be in the past.
Current Weekly Update Rate
-1 1200x800 photo gallery, 1 video clip.
-1 webcam chat Camz.com. Previous ones are archived.
-Active in the site's free forum and blog/twitter.
Cons: -Site navigation is a bit confusing. Too much categories.
-Color combination is a bit extreme. Too dark colors.
-Big 160x180 watermark on photos.
-No search engine; no metadata for sets.
-Her boy-girl videos are now only available as PPV.
-Model recently got a huge tattoo all over her right side.
-Video editing: slow motion, disco music don't mix well.
-Following her (Twitter, Myspace, etc) is a full-time job.
Bottom Line: I was a member for a couple months about 3 years ago. My enthusiasm for the model diminished gradually but I left with the impression this was a great site. I'd been meaning to join back for some time so, when Sandee Westgate put a very convincing sales pitch for her site at a reality porn network forum, I took the plunge.

In my humble opinion, this site is one of the best solo sites. Since it goes back to my early days of perusing the adult net, I could even say it's one of the few sites that's shaped what I currently expect from a solo model site in terms of update rate and interaction. I'm no longer nuts about the model's looks (her new huge side tattoo is... huge) but she's no doubt a hottie and cares to offer a more than decent product and lots of interaction.

I really like the attention to details in the latest picture sets both in styling and posing but I feel they should do something about the editing style of videos. They make it up in the "Sandee's Girls" series: big names, short candid intro interviews and no music throughout the scene. Unfortunately, there's no set schedule for this series and updates aren't dated.

At some point during this last years, they got rid of DRM. They've also moved to a PPV section some boy-girl scenes Sandee Westgate did with her (former?) boyfriend. Most of the old content shows its age but there are some great classic photo sets although not all are available in zip format.

This site really would benefit from a search engine. Having over 350 photo galleries and not being able to filter out/in those where she is posing outdoors, in a brown bikini, using a dildo or posing outdoors in a brown bikini using a dildo will make you miss the sets you would enjoy the most. There are already some small descriptions in some of the update lists so they have some of the work already done.

Status: Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
Pros: -Some content with US porn star Tory Lane.
-21 photo sets. 100 photos each. 1200x800.
--4 hardcore. Probably shot during some DVD scenes.
--2 girl-girl.
--15 solo. Some are 1024x680. Most come from Matrix HD; a couple from Twistys.
-4 DVD scenes. Split in 5 minutes parts. 640x480 2200kbps wmv. No DRM.
--All boy-girl. A couple POV look a bit amateur but are OK. Probably from some DVD anyway. Very unlikely that they are exclusive for this site.
-Clean, simple design: top menu gives access to different content within the site; left menu navigates to other network sites.
-Big preview thumbnails for each set with release date and image count.
-Users can rate the sets: numerically (stars) and also write public comments. Unlikely that Tory Lane will ever read them.
-Access to other network sites. Check Pornstar Key Site Facts at TBP to know the exact sites (most are solo model sites that also begin with "Simply").
Cons: -No exclusive content:
--Looks like Matrix HD and Twistys are the main sources of photo content. Some may come from New Sensations DVDs.
--Nurseholes DVD was released by Powerhouse according to IAFD; somewhat related to New Sensations? Didn't get other DVDs' titles.
-Few sets. Partly understandable as updates started in late Oct-2007 but current update rate is slow: only 7 galleries and 1 video in 6 months.
-No zipfiles.
-Must solve a CAPTCHA to login every time.
-Lots of links to join external pay sites. Some are disguised as regular site links.
Bottom Line: I was disappointed with Tory Lane XXX (allegedly, an official site) so I checked this one in case she had another "really official" site. The tour didn't make me think this was any better but promised access to several network sites so joined anyway. Turns out this was as much a disappointment as the other one. Thank god for trial memberships.

The Tory Lane content quantity is quite depressing. Picture galleries seen a hundred times and no exclusive videos. Videos are good and quality is more than acceptable. Pity there are only 4 scenes while IAFD lists Tory Lane in at least 8 DVDs from New Sensations and 2 from Powerhouse all prior to 2007. Wonder why they can't make them available here 3 years after they were released.

The site is well done and nice to use but the lack of content sends it to the bottom of my rating list.

The overall impression gets somewhat better when you check the other network sites you also get access to (currently 17). They aren't much more better than this, though (no Jizz Bomb or NS All Access). They are all centered around single models, mostly US but also some European. Raylene Richards was quite a find (the model, not the site). The other sites usually have much more content than Simply Tory Lane.

Status: Was a member approx. 2 months prior to this review.
Pros: -Caters to a sex while sleeping fetish.
-14 scenes. Last one released 6 days ago.
-Most models are good looking newbies.
-Most are all-natural young girls with few tattoos.
-Very little makeup brings verisimilitude to the scene.
-Missy Stone and Brynn Tyler look hot.
-Convincing acting.
-Interesting mix of POV and fixed camera.
-Was accessible via Porn Pros Network.
Cons: -Most models pretend to stay sleep and unresponsive during the whole scene.
-Scene page on the site contains a story that explains the girls are OK with what happens. But the scenes don't show any of the story's details.
-Scene structure is always the same. Every scene feels like a remake.
-The usual drawbacks of Porn Pros Network.
-The same male perfomer in 90% of the scenes (Anthony Rosano).
Bottom Line: Scenes always follow this structure: guy sneaks camera in hand into a room where a young girl is sleeping in bra and panties; he slowly undresses her, trying not to wake her up, all the time groping and fingering her; he leaves the camera where it can catch all the action, takes out his cock, pokes her a little bit and starts having sex quietly with her till the money shot as the girl remains asleep. It's just as creepy as it sounds. In only 3 (Rachel Starr, Shawna Lenne and Veronique Vega) of the 12 scenes that were available while I was a member, the girl pretends to wake up and catch the guy (the scene continues with the girl's cooperation; she remains somewhat sleepy but is always happy to find herself in such a situation); in the rest of the scenes, the model pretends to be asleep the whole time.

Those who don't "wake up" are usually quite new to the industry but, of course, there's little doubt that they agreed to be filmed that way, signed their model releases, etc. Among them, there are a couple of rising stars like Missy Stone or Brynn Tyler. I believe some BDSM sites shoot a short segment at the end of the scenes where performers, now dressed in civilian clothes, talk about what they just did so viewers are assured that what happened was consensual. I'm not saying they should do this here but maybe the girls should always pretend to wake up as they already do in those 3 scenes. Another option would be to add a behind the scenes clip. I am sure the performers couldn't help but crack up at some point while filming. It would also be funny if they could release a scene where the one sleeping was the guy.

If the fact that the girl stays asleep until the end of the scene is extremely important to the fetish, maybe they could shoot a short acting intro where the girl tells the guy she's OK with that. In fact, the main page for each episode always has a short story where they justify the situation; things like "she was familiar with my particular fantasy" or "deeply asleep, willing to let me do my thing". It's quite obvious they've added that as an afterthought as the scenes always have the same structure but the stories vary quite a lot in the details.

Creepy details aside, there are some pretty young all-natural newbies here. There's little more to be said, if you are into this kind of thing you'll probably like it. I felt, though, that model's response and the guy's performance (always the same guy) is pretty much interchangeable from scene to scene. They all make a pretty good job. So, if your fetish isn't exactly the same as the one depicted in a particular scene it's unlikely that you'll find another one that better suits your taste.
