-files are named 01, 02, 03 and so on
-horrendous download speeds
-no tech support
this site is great as far as content goes. however my download speeds are at 275 kb/s. i have no problems with any other site. ive contacted tech support, they ignored me. i have given the lowest score possible because if you cant download the video whats the point of even joining?
been a member for 2 weeks, but the past 4 days or so the download speeds seem like they start at 2.7mb/s and then drop to 500 kb/s after 10 seconds. pausing and resuming the download spikes it as well. any ideas?
Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
Great video quality and options
No download limit
Not a lot of variety
Not much direction to the videos
FTV Girls is a site that focuses on young, thin, and attractive models.
With a couple of minor exceptions all videos are solo scenes that tend to fall into either masturbation or exhibition categories. The videos are of high quality but I found myself getting bored of this site much faster than most, but tastes will vary on this.
I think the reason why I didn't like the site as much as I thought I would was because there doesn't appear that any real direction is given to the models. Basically the "director" doing the filming places the girl somewhere and just lets her do whatever she feels like. Sometimes this works out but other times it ends up being kind of boring.
There is also always a lot of talking going on between the director and model which you may or may not like. There's not a lot of variety to the model or scene type so you need to really like both.
One thing I did find interesting is that occasionally some of the models performed dance routines. I haven't really seen that done before on other sites so I thought that was kind of novel.
The layout of the site is pretty well done. The scenes are pretty well tagged and organized. The shoots are cut up into small clips of maybe 4-11 minutes. Normally I'd dislike this and want a single complete video but for this site I actually really appreciated being able to pick and choose what parts to see and what ones to skip.
Download speeds were always good and DL managers work fine.
If you like the content there's a good amount of it but I feel the one update a week is too infrequent. It seems to be a one man show so perhaps that's simply the volume one person can handle. I do recommend a join but can't say that I'd want to be a recurring member.
I don't regret my membership but I didn't like it as much as I thought I would and got tired of the site very quickly. It is worth noting though that I generally prefer more hardcore sites and I'm sure that did impact my feelings about this site.
I was expecting alot of sexy mastubation videos and videos of riding dildos. They have some, but most of the videos show the girls waltzing around half naked in public places or trying to see how carrots, pickels and other fruits they can stuff in their vagina. They are often not even masturbating.
On top of this you can't use down load managers, which makes it a real hassel down loading. I can not recommend this site. I have deleted almost all of the videos I down loaded. Not worth the space on the hard disk.

Some may disagree with me on this assessment, but I see FTV Girls as serving two completely different niches within one site. They focus on public nudity and on solo girl masturbation. There are other niches (some girl/girl and some rare hardcore) but the majority of the scenes contain the two main niches that the site serves. There is a limitation to my review in that while Iím a huge fan of public nudity Iím not a big fan of solo girl stuff, so most of what I downloaded was the public stuff. I think itís reasonable to assume that if the public stuff is of such high quality that a prospective member who likes solo masturbation scenes would be equally happy with a membership.
The site has been around for 10 years now and continues to offer high quality exclusive scenes. Right from day one this site had high production values with good lighting, camera work and editing. The site now has 839 scenes uploaded and updates with one (sometimes two) scenes being added per week. Some may say that the update rate isnít enough, but when you consider the effort that goes into these scenes I think the once-a-week update is pretty impressive.
The site itself is well laid out and simple to use. The scenes are laid out 30 per page and each scene opens into a separate page. On that sceneís page there are links for the videos (two or more) and the photos. Each of those opens into a separate page with the download options. On newer scenes there are obviously more options with the scenes being HD in both WMV and mp4, in SD in either format and in two formats for mobile devices. The file size is shown too. I downloaded the HD mp4 videos and they come in at 1920x1080, 12,000kb/s and 30fps. The older HD videos have the same specs except the bitrate is about 8,000kb/s.
You can also sort by model and there is a search function and extensive use of tags. (One great advantage of the tags is that it allows the member to do some pre-sorting. I was here for public nudity and there was a tag for that.)
The site was an early adopter of HD video bringing it in in December 2007. The SD videos offered before that come in at 720x480, 1,200kb/s and 25fps.
One thing I liked about the layout was that when you opened the page for a specific video there are thumbnails of the photos on the same page which allows a bit of a preview to help you decide if you want the scene or not.
Photos are available and look great. Obviously the photo size has grown over the years with the latest being offered as either 1600 or 4000 pixel downloads. Zips are available.
An interesting facet of the site is that since it is so high quality and has been around so long it affords an opportunity to see A-list stars before they were stars, and in many cases under different names. Amia Miley appears as Ileana, for example. Christie Lee and Kelly Wells make early appearances. There are quite a few big models who appeared here early in their careers. Something that may be unique is the 2006 shoot of Brianna Love (as Brianna) when she is 8 months pregnant.
I joined specifically for the public nudity. In my opinion, public nudity is either very good or very bad. When done wrong all the heat is removed. FTV does it right: the public parts of their shoots are really well done. I use Teasers VOD as the gold standard of public nudity due to its high risk and intense heat. FTV isnít up to that standard but it is still excellent and any fan of the genre wonít be disappointed. I should also point out the flaw in comparing this site to Teasers: Teasers was so risky that the City of L.A. shut them down. Iíll accept the less in-your-face public scenes in FTV as a trade-off for more scenes being shot.
Notwithstanding the above, this is NOT just a public nudity site. Most videos have some public nudity and thatís followed by an indoor scene with masturbation. While I normally prefer the option to download an entire video, the fact that the shoot is broken into segments really fits well here. I just want the public stuff and thatís in a stand-alone video. Same with the solo stuff. I liked that the scenes are not sterile. The modelís personality is allowed to shine through. Some may not like that the cameraman interacts with the model in the scene, but I think it adds to the heat.
There is a lot of ďBTSĒ material available too for those of us who like that. Itís located under the ďExtrasĒ tab.
Download managers work on the site and I had no problem with using one.
If there is a downside to FTV it is likely that some people who like variety in their models may not be satisfied. The models are almost exclusively Caucasian, 18-22 and slim. Donít join looking for 30+ BBW black women. I like what they offer, and Iím a satisfied customer.
The bottom line is that this is an excellent site that does a great job of offering material for different interests. The material is great and it is easy to access. I recommend a membership.
Download managers do not work effectively on this site because the links are only active for 1 hour.
This is from their FAQ:
"My Download Manager Isn't Working
Our new members area experience was designed to be viewed on every device we could get our hands on. Unfortunately the way the Android operating system works with its video player, we had to do some crafty authorization techniques to make our site work on Android phones, tablets, the Chromebook, as well as all other implementation.
One of the trade offs is that our download links are only valid for 60 minutes. So if you use your download manager to queue a download for while you're sleeping, that will no longer work. We apologize for the inconvenience. If Android ever fixes this issue, we'll be sure to roll back to a more standard way of linking."
BTW I don't accept their excuse because other sites work around it and Android don't require them to expire their links witin 1 hour. 24 hours would be reasonable and would be an easy change if they genuinely want to support download managers.
Also I think the Site Details for the TBP review need to be amended to note that Download managers don't work properly.
I've had Alison Angel sat in my bookmarks for years without ever joining, just checked out her tour again and its showing a couple of updates with release dates being shown as within the last week. I see there was a previous comment about her retiring so does anybody recognise if this is old content being rotated or has she come out of retirement?
Was a member approx. 6 months prior to this review.
-Attractive, often gorgeous models, often shot early in their careers. Upscale location(s) for the photo shoots help out too.
-Excellent video quality! The HD videos are really good!
-I really like the pussy close up videos-they are very well done.
-Many of the masturbation videos end with real orgasms and oozing girl cum.
-Most of the models have an interview video that does a good job of letting you get to know them a little better. The models can also post a comment on their experience with FTV after the shoot is done.
-They do have occasional lesbian videos which I think are well done. I really liked Malena Morgan and her gf.
-the photo sets are almost an after-thought, and although they are pretty good in general, the one thing they lack is size (many are only 1500 px on the long dimension). This is probably my biggest gripe, especially since they have so many really hot models.
-site navigation could be improved with a better search engine. Its organized by update date, and you can search models alphabetically. Having said that, from my perspective there really are no search tags that can reliably find models I really like. You never really know until you watch their videos.
-there seems to be just a few main locations that most of the videos are shot, so you will start to recognize them again and again. One place that they use for most of the outdoor shoots is some type of office building--usually there aren't many people around, so it appears they go out there on the weekends. There is also a nice house (mansion really) that they use for the indoor shoots. Still, more variety would be nice.
FTV stands for "first time videos", and while it may not be true for every model that FTV was her first porn shoot, its probably not far off. Many of the girls still have a youthful energy and innocence that you usually don't see in your average experienced porn star.
FTV has been around for quite a while, so there is a lot of content to go through if you are a first time member. It took me 4 months to go through the most recent three years or so. The updates only come once a week (one new model, each with about 9 to 12 videos and 4 or 5 photo sets), so its not a site that I would stay joined to forever. Rather, its the type of site that you go back to once a year or so, after your initial membership.
FTV has a few themes that feature heavily in its videos: public nudity and flashing (usually 2 or 3 of a models vids will include this); masturbating with extremely large dildos, vegetables, and/or hands (fisting); and real masturbation videos that often include extreme pussy close ups. The public nudity and extreme insertions don't really do much for me, but I love their masturbation and pussy close up videos. That along with the model interviews, "freshness" of the models, and excellent video quality are what I really liked about this site.
Bottom line: there is a huge amount of quality content here. Definitely worth joining!
*Edit* Just noticed ftvgirlsonline.com has a separate listing here on TBP/PU. This is the same site and the price is $29.95, not the $24.95 listed. Looks strange that the site isn't listed as owned by the same company as FTV. I'm pretty sure it's just a mobile/tablet version of the site.
I joined FTV through a promo ad on Twistys, I think it was Twistys. Instead of sending me to ftvgirls.com where the regular site is, it sent me to ftvgirlsonline.com. The content was all the same, but the site did seem faster and less clunky, but I don't know if this is like a FTV new version that they are testing out or if it's just their own clone of their site. I'm holding out hope that it's a new version and they are going to work more on the navigation and download issues.

- 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.
I'm just writing a quick comment and will do a full review soon on this gem, I'm simply loving porn at the moment and discovering I have a real fondess for some of the American girls, I have dipped into to American porn for ages but always preferred the beauty and less tattoo sister from Europe. But ever since watching a few movies at sweetheartvideos and their network I've got a real fondness for some of these women and even with tattoos (never thought I'd say this, still wished they just didn't do it and I don't think I've seen a girl without one but thats reality I guess in the US) still to hear dialogue has been great and something I've found myself really like.
Just watching Aubrey and Nikki movie and OMG, simply amazing Aubrey Belle I think it is (the brunette) is just as cute as a girl can be and reminds me of Lexie Belle when she first started, god if only she didn't have that tattoo lol. Watching them though in public going down on each other, unbelievable, beyond hot.
I so wish FTV would start to do more lesbian stuff as I think they make such great lesbian scenes which includes lots of fun, especially the ones in the last few years 2007 onwards.
More like 1010% Cute, almost want to join just for her
Just checking out FTV girls updates and this girl Riley was added in March, a very rare beauty, got a smile that will melt anyones heart, so cute its beyond words. Such a shame though when I saw the tatoos on her back, I'm not off her totally as she is amazing from the front and will have to join soon here again as there is a few other cuties been added since I was last a member, wish they'd do more lesbian stuff though as they are awesome, especially the public nudity stuff, my fav.

-Consistent. Not much has changed since I was a member 2 years ago.
-The girls. If you like sexy white chicks that run the gamut from avg. to gorgeous, you'll get something out of FTV. (they have an exotic non-white girl here and there).
-Girls inserting large objects. One unique aspects of FTV is their penchant for having the girls stick massive vegetables and/or fruits inside them. Once in a while they'll shove a hand or fist in there for good measure.
-I was able to download zipfiles of pics rather quickly.
-Lots of hot videos of girls masturbating.
-Little synopsis of the scene and the director describes shooting with the model.
-The layout is a bit cumbersome. Also, visually they could reconfigure the site so it's more intuitive to navigate instead of just scrolling down...FOREVER.
-The girls' names! It seems more often than not FTV always has the names of the girls listed differently than what they are everywhere else. This is probably a testament to their ability to locate the newest, hottest girls. However, it's a pain in the butt to us pic collectors who would like to organize all of our pics by model. Thankfully there are unaffiliated blogs on the web that list girls by their FTV name AND their porn names.
-The price. They need to lower that price a bit. In my opinion this is good for once every two years but for less than half the price I can get better content.
-The video content meanders a bit. and I'm not a big fan of how they edit by splicing right in the middle of a scene so there's a slight jump in the audio and video.
I seem to join this site every 2 years or so. I like FTV a lot, but for what it is, they should be commanding a subscription rate of $19.99. Even then, I think that's a bit too high. I give it an 83 because it is solidly a VERY GOOD site. However, there are solo glamor-shot type sites that in my opinion are slightly better, and update more frequently. With my latest stint with FTV coming to a conclusion in a matter of days, I definitely enjoyed my subscription this time around...see you in another two years FTV, maybe.
Now, it has been two years since I had joined the site and I still have some pictures, but I was wondering if they have the same sizes for all photos. For example I have some pictures of Georgia Jones' pictures and some are 2000x3000, but I don't have any of Franziska in that sizes.

The girls are absolutely hot. There are lots of them.
Though the girls are hot, the photography is only average. It's not up to today's standards. The photo-shoots are average.
The site navigation is also outdated. I'd also like to add terrible. I feel it's like it's a site from 10 years ago.
The search option need work as well. How could you miss out on this aspect when you showcase so many models. It lacks depth and is confusing.
This site is really slow. I have a high speed connection (32 mbps on speedtest.net) and loading times are slow and choppy at times.
I have nothing to say about the vids. I didn't watch many of them. I'm a pictures guy.
I've been wanting to try out this site for a long time now. Now that I've become a member, I'm very disappointed with it. I'm also disappointed that it got such a high rating considering lots of mediocre aspects. I didn't even download one set. I'm going back to my old porn collection. I'm dissatisfied with the content, site, and value praised about this site.

Very cute, sexy and NATURAL girls!!!
Real orgasms, no fake
A lot of models
Video quality is good
Picture quality is good
Good download speeds
The guy running the website is very nice and good customer support
Not a lot of action in the videos...
Sometimes, videos are too short
Not a lot of content per models
Way too pricey for the content
Older videos are of bad quality
Site navigation needs a major tweak
FTV girls has always been one of the best website on the internet. I have been a member a few years ago, and all I can say is that it hasn't changed much since then... I had to cancel my membership after a few minutes browsing the website...
The girls are very great looking, they are all natural and the videos are great quality.
However, there is not a lot of action in the videos. Most of the videos have the girls talk for way too long or just tease. The actual masturbation videos are kind of short, or they do the same thing which gets boring.
Another point is that for mostly all the models, they only have one video or one picture gallery. It is really missing content.
The website navigation, especially the search feature needs to be better. You can only search models by one pre-made keyword or by viewing the models by alphabetical list. But to find a model you like, you are going to have to browse through all of them.
I have suggested to the webmaster to add a new search feature, where you could search models by hair color, eye color, measurements, nationality, etc, etc, but he replied to me saying he couldn't do it because FTV doesn't have employees, he manages the website all by himself and it took him almost 1 year to do the search filter he has now.
Well let me tell you something... With the money you make, you might want to hire someone to maintain your website. And creating the kind of filter you have right now on your website could probably take 5 mins for someone who knows what they are doing. The new filter wouldn't take that much long either.
Don't get me wrong, FTV is awesome, but way too much pricey for the content and the poor website navigation.
I am not sure if I can recommend this website for those reasons.

HD videos look great, maybe best i've seen.
this is my 2nd or 3rd membership over the past few years..i don't remember there being hardcore before, in any case a nice addition. women are generally very attractive..more ethnic women would be nice. the camera-man is rarely involved. by in-large the women are enjoying themselves. i do like it when the camera-man asks about sexual history.. likes and dis-likes.
as said more ethnic women. tough to think of any real negatives. price is high relative to other sites but most other sites are not this good.
After about 10 or 12 sets, I feel like I've seen it all. The girls are beautiful, but shake it up a bit! A little investment in server equipment would also be appreciated. Faster download speeds could really help this site stand out.
Since there's little that hasn't been covered already via reviews and this source, I'll just act as another number to add on the positive side of FTV Girl's ledger.
Good softcore sites aren't all too plentiful -- at least the kind I like. Happily, this one had the right stuff. The girls gave me the right moves, they talked the talk and walked the walk (figuratively speaking).
It's been a while since I was a FTV member, subsequently, judging from these incoming accolades I'm observing from our seasoned PU-PROs...I'm tempted to take another look.
