+ About 215 scenes of exclusive milf / mature hardcore action featuring mostly attractive gals.
+ All scenes have vids and about 98% have pic sets with zips.
+ Multiple download options on vids and vid quality is good. All vids have at least one HD download option.
+ Good download speeds for me (about 3-4 MB/sec).
+ Decent price of $18 month through TBP.
+ Bills through Epoch.
+ The inbrowser video player works well.
+ Good production values across the board.
+ Model directory seems complete.
- Not really a picture site (see below).
- Downloaded files and vids poorly labelled (just numbers).
- Too much music in the earlier produced vids.
- No real search function or tags. No model information.
- Pretty much M/F hardcore, not much anal or 3 way and zero solo or lesbian if you're into that.
- A bit too "heartcore" for my tastes.
- Updates only once a week.
- As one sort of expects with the older actresses, there is a lot of silicone to look at.
Wasn't really sure what I'd be getting here when I signed up other than a more mature line of starlets. Overall, it's pretty much a straight M/F hardcore site featuring pornstars in their late 20's to late 40's. The girls are mostly attractive pornstars (no BBW) and the production value is good to excellent across the board (no amateur feel to it). Here's the specs:
PICS: Like I said this isn't really a picture site. The pics dating from the beginning to late 2014 have portrait resolution of 1500x2700 but only have landscape resolution of 1500x840. What went wrong there? Others are a hodge podge of different sizes (a lot of 1000x1500 though). The most recent pics are all 1000x1500. The pics mostly look like HD screen grabs so there is some blurriness and cropping is questionable at times. A lot of scenes are shot in bright light or white backgrounds which causes some pixelation and washout. Most of my downloads were done in hopes that I could salvage some stuff that would look good on my monitor as opposed to looking forward to editing the sets later.
VIDS: Download speeds were good for me. With earlier vids you get options 1080 mpeg or wmv or 480. Starting in 2014 you also get 720 resolution options. This mostly a "heartcore" site which means lots of bright background lighting. The older vids show a bit of pixelation because of this but it improves over time. Also, through late 2013, the theme was "heartcore" (aka - porn for mimes) meaning that no one in the scene makes any real sex noises. Apparently the producers noticed that and thus incorporated random porn synthesizer music into various parts of the scenes to take it down another notch. The music goes away for the later vids (late 2013 onward) and the action gets more heated but there are no real story lines or conversation in the vids. The camera work is decent though and you do get some nonstandard views which is welcome.
NAV: As noted, it's pretty basic. You can only search according to model, date or ranking. If you are looking for something specific in a scene then you'll have wade through everything to find it because nothing is tagged.
MISC: There is a fair amount of POV style shooting here (run by remote or a cameraman, not the herky jerky hand held stuff done by the guy). The scene shifts in the vids can be a bit choppy at times too. Otherwise, the main theme is heartcore or heartcore with a slight edge. No real slapping or spitting here which is fine by me but it's almost too tame, especially if you've seen some of the actresses other work. As a comedian once said, "If the sex ain't dirty, you ain't doing it right."
If you're looking to add to your mature video collection it's worth taking a look at. Otherwise I'd say it's OK. If you're into pics then I'd say move along. Average is the site so average be my score.

- Some fresh models early in their careers
- Lots of download and streaming options
- Good production values
- TBP Discount
- Small site
- Updates are very slow to arrive
- Site will remain small unless the update schedule is increased
- Download speeds varied
- Would be better off as part of a network
When I saw this site listed as a new site on TBP I signed up. Iím a big fan of collecting Ďfirsts,í and especially collecting first anals. I knew this would be a small site since it was just starting out but I had high hopes that it would develop into a great site for this rare niche. And the fact that the site is affiliated with Porn Pros gave me some comfort too. I went into the membership with my eyes open and the scenes are good but unless one fatal flaw is fixed this site isn't worth the membership right now.
There are currently only nine scenes uploaded. For a new site in a narrow niche thatís to be expected though. The problem specific to this site is that it appears that they only add one new scene per month. When the site started they added one new scene every three days and then they went a month before a new scene was added. Unless they pick up the pace this site will be a low value for a while.
The scenes themselves are well done. All of the models are typical porn cupcakes in that they are young (18-20), petite and natural. Several of the models will be added to my list of favorites and I hope to see a lot more of them in the future.
Of the nine scenes one is billed as the modelís first scene ever, one is the modelís first interracial scene, two are each modelís first (vaginal only) gang bang and five are the modelís first anal scenes.
The videos are available in streaming or as a download. Streaming is available in two resolutions. Downloads are available as MP4s in 1080p, 720p and 480p, as a 480p MPG1 and as a 720p WMV. I downloaded the 720p MP4s and those come in at 1280x720 and 2,600 kb/s. While the bitrate is low there is no pixilation at all and the video looks sharp.
Photos are available too Ė as singles or as a zip. The zipped photos are 1500x1000.
The site allows download managers and I didnít have any issue using one. Download speeds varied from average to poor Ė I often saw download speeds drop below 1MB/s. (The site seems to be affiliated with Porn Pros and I have that same issue there too.)
So would I recommend the site? Probably not, unless you really need to have one or more of the scenes. Even with the TBP discount this site isn't a good value and unless they start updating more often itíll be a long time before it is a good value. This is an under-served niche and the site could be a great stand-alone site if it was updating more frequently. As it is now, however, the site would be far a better option as part of a larger network.
The downloads are crazy slow! A 1.4gb video takes upwards of 2.5-3 hours, most others take around 20 minutes. I have broadband cable internet so it is on their side. I had a membership with another site that had HD videos and their 2gb videos were downloading in under 7 minutes. All videos have generic labels (like WMV 1080p)and have to be renamed on download to prevent a duplicate file warning, this is unacceptable. I will not renew or upgrade my membership to this site for these reasons.
Damn... even the login page asks if you want to buy into their network of sites. $69.95 for access to all their sites. Funny that this supposedly 24-hour sale for their members has been going on for the entire week I've been signed up.
Next, every video you look at has a list of every video that model has done on sites you don't have access to. "BUY ME! BUY ME!"
And what a coincidence it is that, ever since I signed up, my email is suddenly filled with spam - all with similar subject lines.
Yeah - we all know porn is a business. Does it really have to include bullshit like this?
This site, in a way, reminds me of the girlsdoporn site in that it COULD be such a hot site with the girl's they get on, but completely fails to be because of lame scene direction and the equally lame male talent. And this is across the board for all the Pornpros company sites because it's mostly all the same male talent, and he sucks.
Now in girlsdoporn it's the same stupid camera angles where you never get a really good money shot of anything that's the problem, always shooting from the side, or with the girl facing the camera when the guy is doggie, etc. With Tiny4k, or the other sites under this company umbrella, it's actually a pretty similar problem, although you do get close ups of the penetration at least. HOWEVER, it's still the same issue where you never really get to see the girl's vag because it always has a dick in it during the scene, the ENTIRE time. And I know what you're thinking, of course there should be a dick in the vag - but I'm talking like some scenes you literally never even see the girl's pussy once. The guy (always the same big dicked white guy) NEVER does any pull-outs during the scenes, just mechanical fucking constantly, and they edit out the position changes and lots of other stuff where you may could see the girl's private parts a bit more. I want to see a few pussy gapes from fucking, I want to see some in and outs, this boring mechanical pumping endlessly is just that - BORING!
Every once in a while I check out the latest updates, but they are all the same thing, lame. I've lost count of how many girls I literally have no idea what their pussies look like because they never once make a point to show them - and I want to see their pussies damnit! :P
An excellent site if you like matures; Janet Mason, Brandi Love, Lisa Ann, Ava Adams, Nikki Daniels and more. If you don't like boob jobs and veteran stars with a few wrinkles then stay away. These pros can outperform just about anyone on the industry and I am elated to have found fresh scenes from them. Video quality and pics are excellent the last two years and very good prior. Highly Recommended.
It's strange that - even though the review mentions that this site is owned by PornPros, and even though there was a comment a few months ago that this site is just posting old Porn Pro scenes as new - the review doesn't mention that fact. It's not like it has changed. The newest video on PassionHD was posted on PornPros back on 8/23/14.
I've got to say, it doesn't do much for my faith in the thoroughness of TBP reviews.

- Nice modern look and feel to the site
- Great video player with fast playback, very little buffering, quality video
- Downloads offered as well as streaming
- Good quality photo sets
- Many of the models are very sexy
- Pristine video footage including brilliant lighting and clean, beautiful backgrounds
- Good videography including stable shots instead of the usual CrazyCam (handheld extreme closeups)
- Not a whole lot of fake stuff (fake boobs, fake screaming)
- Hot sex, sometimes ending in creampies
- No condoms otherwise
- Low on updates
- Mostly straight sex with the normal position progressions; nothing unusual, no surprises
FantasyHD.com is a part of the new school of Internet porn ushering the era of higher standards: better lighting, better editing, clearer, cleaner pictures with more beautiful models having sensual sex in elegant surroundings without intrusive, painful music, jarring camera angles. Billed female-friendly, or "couples friendly porn," FantasyHD is another site that focuses on the intense pleasure of the female instead of some guy on steroids speed fucking a bleached-blonde with fake tits, tats and a spray-on tan for 25 boring minutes. The one thing making it hard for me to keep paying for my subscription, nevertheless, is that the updates are coming FAR and FEW in between. I suppose you can't rush perfection, and you'd rather have a few scenes so hot that your dick will leak precum without touching it than to get week after week of weak sauce--pardon the pun. But at $25-$30 a MONTH, and thousands of sites out there, you Have to be able to deliver so perhaps they launched too soon. In spite of that, I plan on sticking around, and checking back for when they do upload that new video that gives me what I'm paying for.
i paid for a membership yesterday, and 24 hours later i still cannot log in using my verified user / password. should have listened to the other reviews. seems like a site with this kind of high quality focus on content would have a better tech team!!
Lots of the preview page pics have nice gaping pussies then the video has 0
So for some mind boggling reason, all the previews on this site and the similar sites like PassionHD, castingcouch-x, etc all have some pretty interesting PICTURE previews of the scenes. Girls getting fucked by big dicks and having their pussies gaped open. But stop right there!!! Do not expect to see this in the videos. Video after video you will experience never once seeing the girls pussies. Scene after scene of robotic male talent never once pulling their dicks out to show us the goods. It's beyond boring and disappointing. Why in the hell do most of the pics on the preview pages focus on some pussy gaping when there is ZERO in the videos?????
Kasey Warner's scene on POVD is like a perfect example. The last 2 positions (doggie and piledriver) were absolute PERFECT opportunities for some pullouts to show a nice stretched vag. But nope, not 1 pullout during the fucking and even the pullout to switch positions is cut out. Good lord get a clue people.

- A small collection of scenes featuring some of the most petite U.S.-based models working today
- Ultra HD for those who want it
- TBP Discount
- Supports download managers
- Options for downloads
- Simple and effective site layout
- Photos available (single and zip)
- ĎTinyí doesnít just describe the models
- 4K may be the answer to a question few are asking
- Updates are irregular
- Could / should be bundled with other sites until it grows
Iíll get this out of the way first: I have no need for 4K videos so I didnít download any to keep. I view most of my porn on a 24Ē monitor so going that large just doesnít give me any advantage. When you factor in the file size the negligible benefit for me in viewing is offset by the extra space needed on a hard drive. For those who are interested though, the 4K files come in at 4096x2160, 10,000kb/s and 23fps.
And Iíll get the siteís main drawback out of the way now too: Ďtinyí doesnít just describe the models on the site. There are currently only 12 videos uploaded as I write this. A secondary drawback is that the update schedule is irregular so I canít give any indication of how quickly the site will grow. The site started in early May and by the end of May eight scenes were available. No scenes were uploaded in June and they have since added four scenes in July (as of the 15th). But since the site is affiliated with a large online porn company I suspect that they will continue to grow.
The scenes they do have are very well shot and presented with excellent production values. The models are all mainstream porn models and theyíre a whoís who of petite models working today. These are: Ava Taylor, Chloe Amour, Chloe Foster, Dakota Skye, Dillion Harper, Emma Stoned, Jenna J Ross, Kacey Jordan and Kacy Lane. Eleven of the scenes are b/g and one is b/g/g.
All of the scenes are vaginal only. Iím not sure what constitutes couples porn, but it is fair to say that these are not rough scenes where the model endures some hard sex, though some may see it this way since the site does flaunt petite models with large men, so it isnít true artcore either. The scenes range from approximately 20 minutes to about 35 minutes.
The site is simple and effective, which it should be since it is this small. There are search functions which may prove useful as the site grows. Each scene opens into a separate page where a trailer is available, as are screencaps and photos. The photos are available as a zip but the screencaps arenít. There is streaming available in SD and HD, and downloads are available in MP4 format (4K, 1080p, 720p and 480p), in 480p MPG1 and as WMV in 720p. There is some way to view the scenes that will satisfy most users. I downloaded the 720p MP4 which arenít exactly that. They come in at 1280x674 and 23fps. Oddly, the bitrates vary widely from scene to scene with some being as low as 3,000 kb/s and some being as high as 10,000. Subjectively they look great even though the numbers are a bit lower than competitor sites.
The site supports download managers and I had no issue with links timing out in an unreasonably short time.
The site offers a TBP discount which is a good thing because until it grows it would be a poor value at the full price. The same company has 61 other sites listed here (Casting Couch X being the only one Iím familiar with) and it would be a good idea to bundle it with other company sites until it grows.
The bottom line is that at $18 for 12 scenes (with more to be added, presumably) the site likely isnít a good enough value for the casual user. I think it represents fair value at the discounted price since this is a niche I like and many of the models here are those who are on my list of current favorites. I think the real measure of value here will be how quickly the site grows and how close they are able to stick to their premise of petite models while growing the site at a reasonable pace.

Very nice high quality videos
Generally very nice looking models
Good lighting and sets
A few minutes of amazing POV footage in every scene
Navigation is simple
Mostly US models that sometimes talk a little
Considerable variety of girls
Very little content
Some video is very distorted (think go-pro)
Many links to other sites you have to pay for
A few videos FROM other sites.
Inconsistent access and download speeds
On the face of it, this is a pretty interesting site and I joined because of their amazing POV videos peppered around the Internet. I knew the content would be small, but not THIS small. There are only about 40 videos TOTAL that are native to this site as of 5/15/2014. Fortunately, the site owners take pity on you and give you limited, rather inconsistent access to a few other sites.
This site is actually part of a network, but you don't have full access to the rest of the network. Instead, you occasionally get to watch one of the other-site videos and maybe download that content, but you don't always have access to the other sites...maybe there is a view limit to external material or something...I'm not sure. I am thankful, though, that the site owners recognize that giving away some content from their other sites is a good idea, but there really isn't enough content within this whole network to compete with some of the bigger sites out there. If you DO want to join the whole network, it will set you back $69.00 a month or so for a monthly subscription. Thanks, but no thanks. I've been a member of some of the other sites, and they are also very small (Passion-HD, Casting Couch-X, Fantasy-HD, Pure Mature and ExGF) although the video quality is usually very good. I get that these guys have to make money, but Geeez.... explain the rules to me, please.
This site is a video site so the images are secondary and mostly just from the video shoot. Some are screen-caps but it seems that there is somebody taking pictures as well and many of these are not bad.
Download times seem a lot slower than average and downloads time out a LOT and once stopped cannot be restarted. I can't tell if this is due to a download limit or something else. Again, it would really help to know the rules.
The videos themselves are generally very good and all are 720 or 1080p. I have no idea why it has taken so long for POV videos to take off. There is nothing quite like a virtual scene where you are looking down at a totally naked girl who is on her back with her legs in the air as your virtual dick rams into her. And you get to see it from your POV for pretty much every sexual position. There is one scene where "you" are lying on a bed and a girl sits on your face, but then as the camera angle changes (you tilt your virtual head a little), you see another girl bouncing on your dick. That just seems like the pinnacle of virtual sex to me....at least until they start creating porn for an Oculus Rift!
There are a few nitpicks that I am not fond of, but other people may really like. For one, the male actor in many of the scenes is into licking assholes. A POV close-up of somebody licking a girls asshole is something you can't really un-see and I prefer not to see another tongue going into an asshole from that close....ever again. Also, there are a couple of girls that, although generally very attractive, just are not ready for their close-ups when you are talking about being a couple of inches away from their snatch in the glory of high-def. Fortunately, only a few girls fall into this category. But the most disturbing oddity is that occasionally the POV switches to that of the woman. It is sometimes interesting when the girl is in the shower or something, but this is really, really weird when the girl is getting fucked. There you are drawn into an amazing scene imagining you are screwing the lights out of this awesome girl and suddenly, the POV perspective changes, you are the girl and YOU are getting screwed! Sorry. HUGE NOPE! Same thing happens occasionally while the guy is getting head. I suppose when it comes to POV, there is "give and take", but I am not a taker in this regard. Some Day I'll fire up my Adobe Suite and edit all the junk out of these...some day...maybe. My suggestion to the camera crew and website owners is to take that stuff and create a separate girls POV site. One hetero and one lesbian, even. How about gay POV? You never know who might show up....well, except it won't be me. Sorry.
Bottom line? There are a few OMG videos here that make it worth it to visit, but try to do it at a discount and don't sign up for more than the minimum time-frame....at least until they get their video count up quite a bit. The quality is great, but the quantity is just too low for now.
The first 17 vids look great and r worth a visit. Be warned that all the videos after the first Dakota Skye post are only 720p. I have tried to see if this will change but the customer service is virtually non-existent over there, and when I did hear back from them they were misleading. If anyone knows if this has changed and they are back to 1080 please let me know.
I bit on Porn Pros' promotion, which got me this site. It was pretty delightful for a short time, but since late February, rather than doing any new PassionHD scenes, they're just re-posting Porn Pros scenes from 6-8 weeks ago as new PassionHD scenes.
Was a member approx. 6 months prior to this review.
Good quantity of images
This website was far too short lived. Some of the best black models in the business were on here. With so many photoshopped and unfocused images and videos out there, these site finally got it 100% right! Hopefully they bring it back soon.
I've been a member of this website for quite a few months now. At first, everything was working fine, but suddenly my account stopped working.
I then contacted their customer support through a company called Vendo Services. They basically told me that there's nothing wrong with my account and that there must be a technical issue with the website. They gave me an email address and told me to email them and ask for help. I did but no one ever replied me.
So I contacted Vendo Services again. They told me that there's nothing wrong with my account (again!) and gave me a different email to write to. I opened a support ticket using the second email address I was given and still got no answer (and yes, I checked my junk email folder).
It appears that the only solution I have to my problem now is to cancel my account and ask for a refund... This is not a very good way to keep your loyal customers happy.
I got a deal to join Porn Pros, hadn't been on the site for quite a while and their updates looked tempting, so I joined - and got an offer to get 4 sites - Porn Pros, Fantasy HD, Pure Mature & Casting Couch X - for a one-time charge of $69.95 - but it was very oddly worded, so I figured there had to be a catch. I corresponded with their support, who assured me there was no catch, so I bit. The confirmation of my purchase said, "You now have membership to Fantasy HD for 60 months", which is certainly different than the offer.
When I finally managed to log in with my new login to Fantasy HD, it showed that I had no access to any other sites. When I re-logged into Porn Pros, it showed that I had access to all the sites. Confused, I called the Customer Service, who told me that my $69.96 got me life-time membership to Fantasy HD, Passion HD, Pure Mature & Casting Couch X & that Porn Pros is not included.
It's not what was advertised, but checking out the content of what I did get for the price, it's quite a good deal, so long as the sites don't all shut down real soon.
One of features offered by PornPros is a "Loyalty Promotion." If you are a member for consecutive months, the site promised bonuses. I was a member for 12 months, received none of the promised items.
The only one I was really interested in was after 4 months, they promised to send you a login to a bonus site. There are several sites produced by the same group including Pure Mature and Fantasy HD that I would have appreciated access to. I sent 4 request to the address given on the site......never got a reply.
For the sake of full disclosure, I am still a member of the site. I enjoy the content and after threatening to cancel, I was offered a discounted rate.....but I am still disappointed that the webmaster failed to honor their promotion.

- 74 scenes posted
- All scenes in HD
- Stunning models
- Large majority of models are fresh and unknown
- The male talent is rather Ďtalentedí if you like big facials
- Updates regularly
- Screenshots and photos available
- TBP / PU discount
- Links time out after approximately 10 minutes
- Limited options for members with slower connections
- I had trouble with the MPG files (may just be me though)
- Scenes may be repetitive
- LOTS of ads
- Meaningless file names

- 3 anal scenes?? Is that it??
- Theyíre affiliated with BangBros so watch out.
Lately Iíve had a thing for Ďcastingí sites and have been joining anything that looks decent. A week ago that led me to this site. And in case youíre wondering, yes, I know that these are staged, but theyíre staged so well that a viewer can get lost in the fantasy.
The site dates back to just over a year ago and not much has changed in the way the scenes are shot except for the location being much more upscale in newer scenes. The scenes follow a set formula and rarely deviate from that. Girl walks in, presents her ID, is interviewed, stands and undresses, girl poses nude and fingers herself a bit on the couch, guy standing/girl kneeling blowjob, occasionally becomes guy sitting on couch / girl kneeling blowjob (in some rare scenes with rimming), sex starts with girl standing bent over desk, girl on back on desk, guy laying on back on couch with girl riding, then switch back to girl on knees oral with a damn good facial. Most of the scenes stick pretty close to that formula. Some may find that repetitive, and it is, but itís saved by the hot female models.
You could argue that even the models are formulaic in that they are all in their late teens or early twenties, all are petite (but not skinny) and all but a few have B or C cup breasts. Given the age group, tattoos and piercings are common but not overwhelming. Most of the models are new to me, though I did recognize a few faces that I have seen before. To say that all the models are good looking is either an understatement or an exaggeration depending on your preference. I say the former, but if you prefer larger or older models, then this site may not be for you.
The site has a very simple layout that is easy to use. On each page there are 12 scenes shown by a large thumbnail with the modelís name and the date of the upload. There are currently 74 scenes uploaded and it appears that a new scene is added every six days. Each scene is approximately 50 mins long.
Opening that thumbnail brings you to a page to access the scene. Iím a big fan of HD material and always download it when it is available, so it may seem odd for me to complain that there arenít many download options. The choice is HD in MPG or WMV and an MP4 in 750x422. File sizes for the HD files averages 3GB, so this might not work for members with slower internet speeds. I downloaded the WMV version and all of those came in at 1920x1280, 9000kb/s and 29fps. Subjectively, they arenít bad, but they arenít the best Iíve seen either. The MP4s look pretty good so they may be a good compromise for slower connections. Still, more choices are better.
One problem I had that may be unique to me is that the MPG files stuttered badly. I tried multiple scenes on two computers and used two players and had the same result each time. This may not happen to you, but before you download a lot in MPG you should test them on your computer.
Photos and screencaps are available too. The photos are 1500x1000 and the screencaps are 1920x1280. The big difference is that the screencaps arenít available as zips.
The site does support download managers, but the links time out after about 10 mins. Given the file sizes this means that lining up more than three scenes probably wonít work. Also, prepare to rename each file before you download it Ė they all use the same generic, meaningless name.
One annoyance that I can live with is the number of ads on the site. I donít mind ads if they help keep the site going, but I had one big problem here. Given that the site is affiliated with BangBros, and BB has a reputation for some pretty unethical subscription and billing practices, I avoided even going near the ads for sites I otherwise might be interested in for fear of getting burned with an unwanted subscription.
I realize that not everyone will share my opinion on this, but I was disappointed to find only three anal scenes on the site. Many other Ďcastingí sites have a lot of anal because the genre lends itself to that sex act. ďBut honey, the big money is in analÖĒ This actually leads me to another problem that may not be a problem, and thatís that there are no tags or meaningful ways to sort the scenes. Why this really isnít a problem is that with each scene closely following a formula tags are probably unnecessary: look at the model. Do you like her? If yes, you know exactly what sheíll be doing in the scene so download it.
The pros far outweigh the cons here when you consider the merits of the site. You have access to over 60 hours of HD porn at a discounted price. The scenes all have some hot, young and fresh models. The production values are high and the scenes all look great. What more could you ask for? I definitely recommend this site.
