ALS has been setting the bar high for years.
-all models are shaved and otherwise natural
-over 500,000 pics in zips
-overall amount of content is overwhelming
-lost count of videos, but I'd guess over 3000
-most videos in 1080P
-mostly solo and g/g
-subjects also include b/g, peeing, dildos, speculums, fisting, anal insertions, anal fisting and lots of outdoors and BTS
-newly redesigned and searchable website with tags (90% of peeing content was tagged correctly, I looked at everything on their site and tagged the remaining 10%. You are welcome.)
-one, sometimes two updates daily
They are remastering lots of their older stuff. How cool is it to see those favorite pics of yours from years ago in more detail than ever before? This is one of the coolest things going on at ALS right now. I give them so much credit for staying true to their roots, and for putting in the real effort and investment that it takes to do this.
I honestly can't come up with any cons here.
Some past reviews have mentioned their introduction of b/g content as a con, while other have considered it a plus. I'm pretty neutral on it personally. To those who feel that ALS is straying from their roots with b/g content, I will say that is not true. ALS has done b/g content in their early days too, including one video with Mia that I'm thinking of, it was just rare back then.
The merger with Met Art was totally a good thing, all concerns regarding that have not played out, and they have kept everything that made them unique and great while totally modernizing their site.
You may notice some of the oldest archived sets appear thinned out. This is not new, they were thinned out on their old site too, actually those old archived sets were just samples of what was once available on CDGirlsOnline.com. As part of their renovation with Met Art, ALS had actually brought more pics back online than they had before.
ALS - All Ladies Shaved. I obviously love this site, because I have given it my top score. If you look at all of the sites that I have scored close to 100%, they all have one thing in common - they are large, high quality networks that are run like the best of the small operations. This could not be more true of ALS - they go to every length possible to please their customers. Usually, the "Bottom Line" is the section where I go into objective detail about a site. With ALS, I will ask you to forgive me for being a bit subjective, because I would rather tell you the story of my own personal experience. ALS is a site that dates back to 1996, just about my earliest days ever seeing online porn. I didn't find them in the 1990's though, they first came to my attention in the early 2000's. I remember that ALS's pics were the first that I ever saw in 1200x800 resolution back around 2003, and I knew they had just raised the bar on everyone else. Those 1200x800 ALS pics still look amazing today. Back in those early days, I got what ALS pics I could from TGP's and the like because I was not in a position to get a full membership. Over the years, I lost many files, first due to an ill conceived idea to delete my collection, and later to a hard drive crash, but ALS's pics were among the ones that I remembered the most.
So I finally joined ALS a few months ago, hoping to rebuild my old collection and check out all of their new stuff too. I was impressed with the amount of content on ALS's site. They are one of those sites that you really can just get lost in, due to the overwhelming amount of pics and videos. ALS has a very distinctive style. It goes much beyond just having all of their models shaved. They love to do shoots at the beach and by the pool on bright, sunny days. Their models are young and slender with natural breasts and few if any tattoos. They always look like they're having a lot of fun too, and you can see lots of behind the scenes videos where the models are just having a good time with each other and with the staff. At the same time, with all of this lighthearted fun going on, ALS can really push the boundaries. ALS is the only site I can think of where the models seem to be having such a fun time while doing things as extreme as fisting, using speculums, and putting clamps (the ALS "dreamcatcher") on their pussies. Of course, there is lots of peeing too. So, there I was, downloading all of this great stuff from ALS, when I realized that something was missing.
I had some pics from the earliest days of ALS that I just couldn't find anymore. Actually, as I would later learn, the pics that I couldn't find were shot and watermarked by ALS, but they were never on alsscan.com or alsangels.com. They were only released on CD by CDGirlsOnline.com, a site that is long gone. CDGirlsOnlines.com was a site that sold CD's of pics via mail with exclusive ALS pics that couldn't be found on their websites. I was let down, thinking that I might miss out ALS's original, earliest work.
So, I contacted support, and they were incredibly helpful! Support passed my email along to several other employees, each of who were remarkably helpful, until it ended up with ALS's content manager. We compared notes about ALS's pics from it's earliest days, and we looked over the really old stuff that I had in my collection. Almost all of the stuff that couldn't be found anymore was from CDGirlsOnline.com. Despite the fact that they had closed CDGirlsOnline.com years ago, he went the extra mile to help me out. So far, he has found thousands of rare, old pics from CDGirlsOnline.com. The ones that he has found so far were released only for a limited time as bonuses, bloopers, and outtakes on the ALS sites and then removed. Out of incredible generosity, he has made these classic ALS pics from CDGirlsOnline.com available to me. Some people feel inclined to guard and keep secret the rare things that they come across. I would rather as many of you as possible enjoy ALS's pics, so that is why I am sharing this information with you, with ALS's permission. These old pics - bonuses, bloopers, and outtakes - are available to you as well, if you sign up as a member and ask politely. ALS has made no announcement that they will be remastering these pics, posting them on their sites, or making them available indefinitely, but they are available right now by special request. They are not up to current ALS quality standards, they range from 400x600 to 1200x800 in resolution, but they are the sharpest 400x600 pics I have ever seen. It's also really cool to have ALS pics with watermarks dating back to 1996, even if the resolution is low by today's standards. What's more, ALS tells me that they still have everything that they ever shot, some in RAW files, and the earliest content on analog color film, all saved in a storage locker somewhere. Isn't that the stuff of legends?
What's the deal here, with this 50% off promo email
Just seen an email from Met Art network with yesterdays date and said 50% off which is $14.99 but when you click the join link it says $29.99 and even better for me in the UK £23.61 cause of ccbill ripoff regional pricing thing. So not a deal at all and at nearly £24 one of the most expensive out there.
I recently joined the site and I thought this was a pretty good site; although, the image sizes aren't consistent in resolution size. Also, in my opinion I think they should've cut out some similar images in the galleries to make the sets a little bit smaller in size. The site was well organized and easy to navigate through.
So I just joined for the first time since they upgraded the site and now I can't seem to find any way to view screenshots of their videos. The old way (like Alsangels still has) you could hover and click on a video pic and it would bring a popup of about 12-15 screenshots of the vids, but I can't for the life of me find any screenshots now. Has anyone else been able to?
Hopefully I'm just inept at finding them, because having zero screenshots for your videos when you used to have them is NOT what I would call an upgrade to the site. Especially since screenshots are pretty much a given for any decent porn site these days.

* Good quality photography
* Most girls are attractive and display a good attitude
* Good connection speed
* Navigation will mostly be familiar to users of other sites on Met-Art's network.
* Streaming videos seem buggy if you want to do anything other than watch them from beginning to end without pauses or skips.
* Lots of strange insertions and weird borderline-BDSM pussy play (may be a pro to some)
* Very little, and mostly mediocre, boy/girl content
* Some videos are basically just the photo sets with a camcorder running (can hear posing instructions etc)
* Navigation options are very lacking and search often turns up irrelevant results. Has a tag system but searches seem to mostly ignore it.
* Model names aren't consistent with other sites, even other sites on the same network.
This is a site whose name I've been seeing for a LONG time. If it's not older than some of the girls in its newest sets, I'm pretty sure it's close - I'm fairly sure it debuted in the 90s, though it only specifically shows shoots back to 2005 at the moment, with selected older content relegated to an undated "archives" section.
I've liked a lot of the bits of content I've seen from them over the years, but never felt compelled to join until now. It seems to have recently been taken over by Met-Art. Like many other sites in their orbit of late, they're marketing it pretty aggressively, with a good discount available through PornUsers and an even better one having recently been e-mailed to current and former members of other sites in this network. On the basis of this, I signed up. Unfortunately I have just canceled after only four days (as always, the membership will still run for a total of a month, it just won't renew).
Partly this is because I mostly want boy/girl content and ALS has only recently started (or resumed - I could have sworn they had some in their early days?) shooting such content. I'd say well under a quarter of their recent updates (which occur once a day) have featured straight sex, and this content only dates back a few months.
However, it's hard to say for sure because there is no option to zero in on a particular type of content, other than a search box that seems to mostly pay attention to the (rather arbitrary) set titles. You'll look in vain for a list of categories on which you can click "boy/girl" and get a list of all the b/g content. Search for "boy/girl" and you'll get every set with "girl" in the title, which as you can imagine, is a LOT of them. This needs a rethink.
Once you've found what you're looking for, it's usually... good but not great. Nearly everything about this site is good but not great, actually (except the navigation which is downright bad). The looks of the models are good but not great, the creativity of the sets and shot choices is good but not great, technical aspects like connection speed are good but not great. Unfortunately with the number of sites competing for my dollar, "good but not great" isn't going to cut it. I certainly don't regret signing up, especially at the price they were offering as of a few days ago, but I don't see anything that compels me to renew.
As with network-mate Sexart (for which I would now want to revise my glowing review downwards a little), it seems to promise something amazing and groundbreaking but deliver something that's merely above-average.
Overall, I can honestly say this is a site I'd recommend, but only weakly so. It's definitely worth it at the very low prices on offer in various places lately. You might like it better than I did if you prefer solo or girl-girl action or if you're into things like a cute girl clipping a dream-catcher to her labia. (That kind of weird borderline-BDSM stuff is only in a minority of their sets, but it's conspicuous by the mere fact that it's there at all.) I can't say that's my thing; while I appreciate a more creative approach to porn, that isn't the direction in which I'd prefer to look for it.
ALS Scan is now officially part of the Met Art Network. This means that the site finally has a complete make-over - very well done, in my opinion - and, though there were predictions of glitchy connection speeds, the vid I downloaded came through smooth as one could want at over 2.5 mb/second.
If you're a member of Met-Art, you can now add ALS Scan to your Met Art membership for only $10/month.
Was a member approx. 2 months prior to this review.
1-Great quality content and download options.
2-Huge selection of models.
3-Girl/Girl pairings that I watched seemed very authentic and unforced.
4-Great attitude from models in all the scenes I watches. They all seemed to really enjoy themselves and showing off for us.
5-Lots of good toy play.
6-Fast DL speeds.
1-Navigation could be improved a bit.
2-Some scene types got a bit repetitive or had a lot of posing instructions from camera operators.
3-Nothing major here, almost feel like the points above are nitpicking.
Great quality site with lots of attractive ladies. If you want hardcore action go elsewhere, but if beautiful shaved young women sharing the enjoyment of their bodies is your thing, check this site out. I thought it was well worth joining and definitely earned its reputation as one of the best.
Just tried to sign up for this site, primarily because they have some early Faye Reagan (a personal favorite), but could not get past the code at the last part of the sign in. Tried it several times, kept getting reply that I entered the wrong code, so could not sign up. Gave up, if that difficult to sign in, can only imagine trying to access the site after sign up.
Regarding MarqulisAZ comment about fisting. Personally I don't get anything out of it, and if that is what all the new videos offer then am thankful I couldn't get in.

- Huge collection dating back five years
- One of the few sites available that photo fans and video fans can both enjoy
- Standard-setting production values
- Site has a Ďpersonalí feel thanks to the models and staff
- Site is simple, but user-friendly
- Exclusive content (not found elsewhere)
- Unique content (nothing else like it on the Ďnet)
- Bills through CC Bill
- Excellent value
- Allows download managers with no obvious timeouts
- Offers HD in multiple formats
- None. Seriously, none.
ALS Scan is a site that I shouldnít like because I generally have little interest in solo girl, masturbation scenes and girl-girl scenes. But even though thatís all that ALS Scan offers, the site is certainly in my top-five favourite sites and a site that I go back to regularly.
I wonít go into a lot of detail about the technical specs of the site because those have been addressed before by me and others in earlier reviews. The site continues to offer HD video in both MP4 and WMV. I didnít bother to comment on that in a previous review because I didnít realize how rare that is. Due to size restrictions, many sites only offer HD in MP4 format and leave those of us who still prefer WMV to live with a lower-resolution file or go with MP4. This would appear to show the level of customer support that the site has if they take this extra step to keep a few of us happy.
Iíve said before that for me to really like a site it has to excel at three things: 1) the content has to be good, 2) the site design needs to be effective and user-friendly, and 3) the material needs to be easily accessed by the members either by streaming or download. A lot of sites score high on two of those, but few score high on all three of those. ALS is one of the sites that does well on all three. They certainly knock two of them out of the park and do better than average on another.
First the content: like any site, if you donít like the content youíre not going to like the site regardless of how great the technical aspects are. In this respect prospective members really need to know that ALS Scan isnít a Ďnormalí porn site. There is no hardcore b/g here at all. Thereís no b/g stuff period. There is mostly solo and g/g material. If youíre not into that, the site might seem a bit dull, but they add some unique character by having lots of behind-the-scenes stuff too. I call it BTS, but only because I canít think of a better term for it. Some people donít like this, but some like me do, and thatís having the camera rolling during a photo shoot. Iím not sure why I like it, but I do and this stuff is very well done. ALS Scan may be best known, however, for their location shoots in the Caribbean, which seem to occur annually. These are a lot of fun to watch and take place at a villa and on the beach. For a site that shoots so much outdoor material the production values are incredible. These guys have the technical aspects of lighting, sound, camerawork and editing down solid. They should teach others these skills. The site offers hundreds, perhaps thousands of exclusive videos and all of them have a unique and personal feel to them. Itís like the staff are making porn that they like with no concerns about commercial value Ė except that what they make is so good it has exceptional value.
In terms of content, one thing that hasnít been posted in several years and I really wish theyíd shoot more of is European public nudity and body painting. Iím a big fan of this stuff and when the staff at ALS Scan did it they applied their usual high standards and made some of the best public nudity scenes available on the Ďnet. (So if an ALS Scan staffer happens to read this, please, please, please shoot more public nudity!)
As for site design, it can be best described as Ďprimitive.í But while that might be a problem for many other sites it really isnít here. Given the narrow focus of the site having a search function really wouldnít add a lot of value. As it is, you can sort for photos or videos and you can sort by model. Beyond that not much is really needed. I think a fair contrast with the site design here might be to Videobox which had a simple, effective and plain-looking site. Then the marketers decided to make it look pretty to attract new members but in doing so they made it less user-friendly. The ALS Scan site probably looks like it did way back when they started, and since it works I hope they donít see the need to make the site flashier at the expense of utility.
As for accessibility the site scores high here too. Downloads are fast, the site allows download managers, there appears to be no timeouts on downloads and there are no download limits. It seems that the site owners sat down and thought what theyíd like if they were the customer and then did it.
Another rare attribute is that the site caters to both photo and video collectors. They offer high quality regardless of what youíre looking for. Iím not normally a photo collector, but this is one site that I make an exception. The photo quality is incredible.
Obviously I highly recommend ALS Scan, with the caveat on content. Even if you really have limited interest in the stuff they offer Iíd still recommend giving them a try. The content is playful, personal and erotic thanks to the models and staff and the site lets you access it easily. That makes the site an excellent value.

Fantastic quantity of material. The girls are all very young, say, under 25. Newer videos are excellent and in HD. Newer photo sets come in high resolution. The girls appear to be having genuine fun. They use ample amounts of oil, lotion, various types of fruits and vegtables and many, many types of battery operated devices. Sets are dated and are available all the way back to 2006.
Navigation is not as good as other sites. (For example, you can't scroll through the images in a set but have to page back out to the set menu and select the next image.) About 1 in 4 releases are actually re-releases of older material dating back as far as 2001...OK if you are a first time member but not if you are back for the 2nd or 3rd time. The narrow range of girl types, sets and specific types of odd fetish shots makes the site a little monotonous after a while. The girls wear very little or no make-up, making some that are solid 10s at other sites about a 7 here. Many of the newer models are not as attractive as models from prior years.
OK, bottom line? This is a lesbian and fetish site that is interesting to visit once just to see the show, but it caters to a relatively narrow taste. Nearly every girl is young, petite, small breasted and, of course, shaved. On the surface, that's not at all bad. Many of the girls from older sets and a few from newer ones are truly beautiful. A few headliners like Caprice, Malena Morgan and Franzeska, are easily recognizable from other sites even without much make-up. But the majority of recent girls are not particularly memorable and at best rate a notch above amatuer. Maybe after years of visiting this site I'm a little jaded. I apologize in advance if what I'm about to say seems harsh. The success of the site must mean that many people like the signature items they provide. Here are a few of those signature items:
1. There are NO boy/girl sex scenes. None. Lots of girl/girl scenes, though.
2. Practically every model gets fisted at some point. If you like that, this is paraadise.
3. There is an odd fascination with the inside of otherwise unviewable areas on the female anatomy. Examples include almost every model agreeing to use a speculum so you can see what her uturus looks like. Many models agree to use what looks like an ambroidery hoop with clothes pins spreading the labia to provide a more detailed view (think dental headgear for the pussy). Some models use glass tubes allowing a view deep inside the rectum. I guess folks are into that. I find it niether sexy, nor flattering. In a word, it makes the models clinical.
4. Just about every model has to pee at some point. The photographers show you exactly when that is.
5. Ladies, care to have your nipples, clitoris or entire vagina vacuum pumped? Yep, they do that here!
6. The first time I saw a set where a model put a lollipop in her vagina I thought it was interesting and might be tasty. That was about 100 lollipops ago. Now I find myself wondering what flavor the odd color lollipop they use is.
7. This is not a glam site. As such, the girls don't really wear much make-up. You get to see every pimple, freckle, sore, scar and bruise, whether it is on a face, a leg or a butt.
8. Allsscan has a sister site called allsangels. The webmaster/owner has no qualms with showing you a set of girls from auditions in his blog and picking out the more attractive girls to send over to ALSANGELS in an effort to sell you membership in that site much smaller for $25 a month. Sorry, all it does for me is piss me of that these better looking girls should have been but aren't on the site I'm a member of.
Ok, before you send me a nasty email, let me put a thought in your head. ALSSCAN is a bit of a sideshow. Sideshows have an odd combination of allure and freakiness that makes you want to go in to see what is there. I've seen this particular show about 5 times since the late 1990s and every few years I find myself wandering back in to see what the next big thing is going to be. (This time I think it is those emroidery hoop-clothespin things....)
Now, it is clear that the photographers have a tremendous rapport with the models as the models are usually having tremendous fun. I think this is because the models are not forced to please the camera so much. (heck, they hardly even LOOK at the camers.) Instead they are encouraged to please themselves and any other girls that happen to be nearby..and perhaps they are encouraged to experiment. Some of the best photo sets and videos come from annual outings where a dozen or so girls are chosen to go to a tropical island. Once there, they can run around naked and generally have sex with any girl they want...and they do.
So, again, bottom line...interesting place to visit but you might not want to stay for more than a month.
On checking my email today I found an offer from ALS offering a free membership at Nubiles when you sign up at ALS Scan. First time i've seen that package offered as a deal. If you're an ex member of ALS and on their mailing list might be worth keeping an eye out for that email if the offer is of interest to you.

The last time I joined ALS Scan I joined specifically for the public nudity scenes. I did that because I really had no interest in anything else they had to offer. I did download some stuff other than the public nudity and when I finally got around to watching it I was amazed at how stunning the models were, how hot the scenes were, and how the site seemed to go out of its way to offer industry-leading resolutions on both video and pictures.
Objectively, the site is as good as it gets. Itís near perfect. Itís obvious that the site owner wants to deliver an excellent product to his customers.
The site offers both video and pictures, and unlike many other sites one doesnít take a back seat to the other. Both are very well done. The site currently has over 1000 videos on the site, with more being added. One point about the updates is that they are new, as in recently shot, and they are old, in that the site offers older, re-mastered material.
The videos are all available in multiple formats. The formats and sizes vary depending on when the video was shot and uploaded, but itís fair to say that if youíre downloading a video from 2007 it would have exceeded the specs of almost anything available elsewhere. For the past year or so all videos have been available in true HD. Theyíre available in DivX and mp4 format (1280x720) and in WMV9 at 1920x1080 (at 8000kbps). I only downloaded the WMV files, and they are amazingly crisp. This is some of the best video Iíve ever seen. HD streaming is also available. HD became pretty common in mid-2007 though not universal until later.
The videos come in several categories: solo photo shoot, solo masturbation and girl/girl. There are several public nudity shoots, but they havenít added to these in a couple of years. Each year for the past several the crew has taken models to an on-location shoot in the Caribbean. The locations and the models combine with the technical expertise of the crew to create some fun, hot videos. There are also casting shoots in Budapest and the Czech Republic. These arenít necessarily Ďhotí but they are a lot of fun to watch. Mixed in to some of the scenes are some fisting (girl-on-girl and solo) and some peeing (but no golden showers).
Iím not a picture guy, but Iíll make an exception for this site. The pics are available as SD or HD and as singles or zipped. The HD size is large (I saw some at 2592x3888) and subjectively they are incredible! Zooming in causes no pixilation at all.
I used Free Download Manager and it worked perfectly. Download speeds were 1850+/- but that may be where my settings are since I donít know how to change them. File sizes can be huge, so people with download caps need to be wary.
One thing I thought was a nice touch was that they created a separate portal for people who download to mobile devices. That makes finding the material easy.
Subjectively, this site is second to none. The models are stunning. There is a good mix of North American and European models. A-list porn stars are here too. The scenes all look incredible. The lighting, camera work, sound and editing are all near-perfect.
This isnít cookie-cutter porn Ė although there are a few broad categories of scenes, the director and models do an excellent job of making each scene feel fresh. It looks like theyíre having fun on the site. My guess is that they are.
Is there anything wrong with the site? Not really, but it could benefit from a search function. There is nothing now, and arguably thatís okay since the shoots can be sorted by model. By they should consider adding a search function for things like fisting, peeing and lesbian. But donít get me wrong Ė the addition of a search function would only be like an extra layer of icing on a delicious cake. (And since they design and sell their own bikinis, maybe a search by style would be great too.)
Some caveats for anyone thinking of joining Ė these arenít negatives, just things you need to be aware of: 1) there are no b/g scenes, 2) 99% of the models are petite, Caucasian and young.
To add more icing to the cake, when you join this site you can get a $9.95 subscription to ALS Angels. Itís a very similar site and Iím not really sure of the difference but it is a nice addition. If I find major differences Iíll post a comment or review if warranted.
The bottom line is that if you like this kind of material and these types of models, you likely wonít find a better site on the Ďnet. Be prepared to spend some time here.
I really like this site's audition videos. I usually don't care for "Behind The Scenes" material but there's something about all those hopeful young beauties getting undressed, and their reaction to the audition, that makes these videos some of my favorites. Just thought I would mention this because the videos aren't featured under the main updates and might be missed by some. And as an aside, I'd accept every one of the hopefuls! I am glad I didn't have to make the eliminations because to me they'd all look good in ALS SCAN.
There are also High Resolution Picture sets of the auditions available but I found quite a few of the pictures out of place and deleted those sets until their editors straighten things out.
I might have kept them, flaws and all, but one set weighed in at a hefty 3 Gigs plus. So, beside the problem of models ending up in each others audition there was also the problem of having to go through a huge number of pictures to correct the mistakes. As well as the loss of 3.3 Gigs memory on an ever more crowded external hard drive.
P.S. Just came across some audition videos in the main section of the site so if you look long enough you will find them there as well.

A large selection of very beautiful models from Europe and North America.
Impressive photography, mostly solo or g/g. Available in approx. 930x1400 px, Normal Resolution and 2200x3500 px High Resolution, zipped. Slight changes in resolution from picture to picture. Enormously large sets giving you the choice of keeping only the very best.
Most recent videos are in HD format in 720p dvx and mp4 format, as well as the extra large videos at 1080p wmv. All are downloadable!
Streaming is also available for previews or watching the whole video on-line if you so desire. Streaming picture is HD and very clear as well. I experienced no buffering problems.
Speed of download was also very good for me at 3.5 MB/s. This was for a single file through Firefox's DTA. Normal downloads through the browser downloader were much slower but still around 600 KB/s but as a plus this way of doing things seemed to allow multiple downloads.
Nice bonus material (auditions, blogs, bts etc.)
Huge picture sets will require a large amount of time to prune. I never thought I would consider a set containing approx. 300 pictures a con. Well, it isn't really - see above under pros, but some of you might be a bit more impatient when it comes to downloading or editing a 500 MB picture set so be warned.
I desperately want a search engine for this site. You practically have to go from update (arranged in chronological order) to update to find something that fits your taste.
Model directory is in alphabetical order but it would be nice if the pictures of the models contained the dates when her sets and videos were published. This would prevent the frustration of finding a beautiful model and then realize that her pictures are not High Resolution and her videos are split up into various parts .. something most of us aren't interested in nowadays unless we collect the complete works of a model.
It would be nice to be able to go to a point where publishing HD videos and HR pictures first started and work one's way up to the present from there.
Close attention is required when looking at the updates themselves, some are an invitation to rate sets, some are bonus material from other sites, some are masturbation videos or g/g videos, some are picture sets, but there are also videos of photoshoots .. something I dislike heartily, but others might enjoy.
Because I didn't pay attention originally I downloaded a hefty HD file (g/g content) expecting hot action and found myself listening to the distracting remarks of the director as he gave his instructions for the shoot. I don't like to have my illusions destroyed. But, as I said, some might like that sort of thing.
This is a well-respected, well run site that offers top quality material. I did not see one single unattractive model, I'd even take the ones they had to reject during their auditions. Most would be between 18-25 in age.
The material is shot indoors, as well as in more exotic locations. Lovers of glamorous videos and picture sets will be well pleased.
There is also the added eroticism of a bit of kink. Fisting, insertion of large objects (mostly dildos), peeing, some public exposure scenes. Good stuff for most.
I also loved the fact that I did not come across one single pair of enhanced breasts. They MIGHT be there but I didn't come across them. This is so refreshing when compared to most sites!
I am adding my usual plaint, and yes, all of you who know me knew it would come:
I wish they featured some mature women, and I wish that their models would wear more than the bare necessities. Sometimes the girls don't even wear those, because I very seldom came across a bra or even a pair of panties during many of my spot checks of the picture sets and videos, but then I shouldn't go to a site like this one and expect it to be something it wasn't meant to be.
You can't expect to find cougars in a cubs' playpen.
After all this site is not meant for lovers of a leisurely strip by mature women but for those who revel in beautiful young, glistening bodies, and for them ALS SCAN does its job very well.
Praise - I wanted to comment that I'm happy to see the majority of newer models fisting again. There was a stretch of a year or maybe 2 where many of the newer models were not fisting, but now almost all of them are. This is very good!!
Rant - It is WAYYYYY past time for this site to change the way it does updates. Models still have their content released on a totally sporadic schedule, which could literally take a year or more to see all of their content. Or you could never see some videos or sets of a model, seriously never. There is no organized release schedule, they just add updates as they get feedback from members as to what they want to see. FUN FACT - I do not want to have to beg for every set or video I want to see!!! Just release ALL OF IT in an organized fashion and EVERYBODY will be happy. Seriously, get all of a models content out in 2-3 months MAX. My guess is less than 20% of members are actually giving feedback of what they want to see, but does it matter, WE WANT TO SEE ALL OF IT. Get rid of this current system and implement an organized release schedule for content PLEASE.
Having said that, here is my current feedback - release a ton of masturbation category fisting scenes please. ;)
Current Member for over 2 months (at the time of review).
- A fantastic array of beautiful girls
- Very detailed and "up-front" photos
- High quality vids, offered in three different formats; 1280x720 HD DivX, 1280x720 HD MP4, 1920x1080 HD WM
- Older models have their videos remastered and published
- Director's blog - you can read and find out what's going behind the scenes and grab some exclusive vid's or photo shoots
- Lots of mqsturbation and self-toying action
- Their castings are featured on video, and photos /w commentary
- The website design. I've been a member three times, and it hasn't changed much from when I first joined in 2002.
- No search function
- Too much fisting for my taste
- Too much focus on "perfect breasts and no tattoos", come on, let in a girl that have some personality and quirky feautres.
- ALS hasn't published all videos of their older models (instead they sell them on DVD for 49.99 o so), come on.
Give us long time fans everything that was ever made with girls like Joanne, Jana, April, etc to download, and I'll be an happy customer.
- Download speeds. It averages at 150 kbit/s per file, and I ave a 8mbit/s line, and there seems to be a 2 or 3 file downloadlimit.
- Only works in IE
I think that ALS has run it course, yes it is still joinable, and it's not a bad site to join (especially if it is for the first time), but as a third time member I must say that I'm not impressed.
It feels like time stood still, and yes, they do HD, but it is so boring to watch.
And most of the new models are rubbish. They should have picked up at least 10 new models that they discarded from the casting sessions (because she looked unhappy or had a tattoo), come on man.
I guess I've had my longest break from the ALS sites in years. I couldn't quite go through my full boycott of the ALS sites, until they combine them or at least give a double sign-up option to join both sites. I have cut back to one month a year on each site.
Also had problems with the payment processor on both sites. Attempting to sign up through their main payment processor which is ALS, through their site, got me two declines and two redirects to CCBill, their alternate biller. I don't know if I'm making an unusual request, but why not just put a link to join through CCBill? It seems the regular payment processor doesn't like my bank card.
Once beyond that, as always, no reason to re-review for now, the content is as good as you'll find on the internet. Especially the newer content with near 4000 high end pictures and 1920x1080 videos. The models, especially on ALS Angels, continue to be top-level for me. I had never seen Taylor Tilden until the sets she has on ALS Angels and really look forward to seeing more of her. I don't understand the remastering pecking order. I would like to see both Eve Angel and Angelina Crowe's content remastered, both seem to be very popular, but they both still have a lot of older content in lesser quality. I think in my complaint there, I'm just wondering if those can't be remastered higher? Going through the ALS Angels models, I can maybe find 5 I won't download content of.
ALS Scan is still as good as always. The quality is very high here as well though there are less models I'm interested in than on Angels.
Overall, the two sites have produced some of my favorite scenes. They have my favorite Meggan Malone scene, strip poker, as she masturbates in front of another female and two males. Eve Angel has many great videos on ALS Angels, my favorite being the assisted fisting from Nadia. When Eve speaks English, I would think she really means it since she supposedly doesn't like speaking English, but she tells Nadia about halfway through the scene, "You're so good at this" as she makes a mess all over Nadia's arm and the couch. Great video work as well, the camera shows just enough of Nadia to show her nipples swelling when Eve says it.
It's very believable porn and I do believe it's ALS greatest strength. On a last note, I would review both similar to my previous reviews. And as a P.S. anyone notice Zoli from Zoliboy hanging around in some of the sets? I found it interesting since Zoli and Alex of ALS seem to work magic with some of these models who rarely do anything extreme. I could be wrong, it may just be someone who looks like Zoli, but the photoshoot video of Eve Angel outdoors with Kylie fisting her, I'm almost positive that's Zoli walking around and helping with direction. Still highly recommended.
ALS Scan has started releasing material from their latest Caribbean trip. They continue to set the bar incredibly high for creating a setting where their models want to go at each other in wonderfully erotic ways.
The first vid released is centered on Tanner Mayes & Blue Angel. They're all sitting around a table, looking a bit dazed, stoned and bored when Tanner goes off, gets a dog collar and leash and puts it on Blue Angel because "she needs to go for a walk." The expression on Blue Angel's face when Tanner comes over to her is absolutely fucking priceless - it's one of those "I love you and I'm game for anything" looks that's impossible to fake. Blue Angel's fucking gorgeous and when she's really into what she's doing, it's a case of - one of the best models alive at her absolute best.
The pics they've released so far are pretty damned awesome as well. And Alex has said that they have more material from this trip than any previous, so if you're a fan of hot girl/girl material, I highly recommend this stuff.
One caveat: They're venturing into boy/girl action with this trip. There's one bj pic in the samples released so far and, according to the Director's Blog, there's at least one boy/girl fuck scene that was filmed. So a word of warning if you're someone that doesn't want to enter a site where guys touch girls. For anybody else..

- Stunning models
- All models are young, petite and shaved
- Some great scenes on location in Europe and the Caribbean
- Pictures and video available
- No DRM
- HUGE volume of material available
- Some public nudity
- The public scenes are very well done
- Simple, if somewhat dated, navigation
- No search function apart from searching by model
- Less public nudity than I expected since it was heavily promoted in the tour
The reason I joined ALS Scan was because the previews showed that there was some public nudity available, and as a big fan of that I joined for that reason alone.
While Iím not a big fan of solo softcore sites, I have to admit to being really impressed with ALS Scan. This is an excellent site that offers some stunning women in both videos and pictures. All of the women are pretty much of the same body type Ė petite and small breasted. For a guy who thinks small-breasted petite women are the best, this makes the site even better. There is a decent mix of Eastern European models and American women. Some porn stars make an appearance too, like Courtney Simpson and Faye Reagan. Most of the models are also fairly young (18-25) and, as the siteís name says, all of the ladies are shaved. So if you like petite, young, shaved models, you should consider a membership on the strength of that alone.
Many of the video/picture shoots take place on an indoor set, but there are a lot that are shot in the Caribbean. These are visually outstanding. Apart from solo girl action, there is some peeing, some toy and speculum use and some girl/girl stuff. All of it is well shot.
The videos are classed into two broad categories: masturbation and photo shoot. The photo shoot scenes are pretty interesting as they give a behind-the-scenes perspective on what goes on.
I joined because the site promised some public nudity. There is some of that, but not a lot. What is there is excellent though, and for a big fan of public stuff that alone was worth the price. All the public nudity is done in Europe with European models. For a site into solo girls, they really seem to understand public nudity. Unlike some other sites (Nude in LA) the public nudity isnít matter-of-fact and sterile. It is really well done and the titillation and risk are well presented. They also do something that Iíve never seen before and hope to see more of Ė that is using body paint to paint a skimpy outfit on a nude model and then send her out to the streets. This is really innovative and a lot of fun to watch. I appreciate that the editors chose to film the painting too Ė this adds to the fun.
But ALS Scan also has the technical side right too. They offer several different choices of resolution with the HD being visually stunning. Other reviewers have covered more of the technical stuff below.
One drawback is that there is no search function. I had no way to easily find the public nudity even though each scene was categorized in that way. Likewise, there is no way to separate out the photo shoot scenes from that masturbation scenes. Some search function would be an improvement.
I may not be a big fan of solo girl sites, but Iím now a big fan of ALS Scan. The people behind ALS present some stunning models in well-shot scenes and make it available through an easy-to-use and modern website. Overall, an excellent value.

+ 250+ smiling, skinny, shaved, super-hot hot models
+ Still almost purely solo- or girl-girl action that stays pretty entertaining
+ Amazing quality:
ē videos: HD up to 1920x1080 @ 300 kb/s
ē photos: hi-res are roughly 3900x2600px
+ Great quantity too; archived vids back to Apr 2007, photos much farther back
+ Daily video updates, new photo set released every two days
+ Download speeds have a lot of ass; I normally got about 1.3MB/s with a DL manager
+ They donate some of their pervy profits to charity, in case philanthropy is a deciding factor
- Large percentage of videos are just BTS, and with photo sets the BTS is usually just mixed in
- Some models' content takes a long time to get released or simply stays unreleased
- Site design works well for what it is, but still has NO search function
- They are beginning to delve into boy-girl content, even if only lightly (read more in BL)
- Despite the fun some content can get predictable and routine
- 2 years since my first review and I still wish they would shoot more American girls or non-Euro girls
- I don't get to meet these girls in person! :-(
What can I say that hasn't already been said so many times and so well about one of my all time favorite adult sites over the years--hell, over the history of much of the crazy web itself, seeing how these guys have been finding and shooting hot shaved ladies since 1996. And since they have been doing this for so long they know a thing or two about getting the goods; great photo and video quality, lots of content, fast access, and above all some very happy models, many of whom come back wanting more.
That last point, happy models who become 'repeat offenders' shall we say, is not something I take lightly when I am looking for a new site to join and it's something where ALS has never faltered. I may be in the minority when I say this, but I genuinely don't enjoy porn where the performers, know matter how willing, are abused, beaten up, disrespected, or at the end of the day just left dissatisfied and unhappy. Of course ALS being in the girls only genre probably helps keep things in check but it, like the majority of sites, is still owned and run by a male and caters to a primarily male audience.
And despite all of this male input the output for many years was totally female; female models with female assistants in most cases and a female co-performer or two in some others. But in the past few years they have, if ever so slightly, started to also use male assistants, or at least made them more visible in both photos and videos--not my cup of tea, thank you very much. Even more alarming--or simply the next logical step, depending on your view--they have just recently shot an actual boy-girl scene. It's yet to be released and is described as a blowjob scene with swallowing, but time will tell as to where ALS steers its content.
Generally speaking, and if you're not looking for hardcore content, there's a lot to love here and at least a little to hate. So take your pick; young, skinny, shaved, mostly white models who are not too shy, so don't be surprised by a single model performing many if not all of the following; peeing, fisting, speculum and other crazy insertions, anal, and near constant spreading. The site design may not be impressive to many, nor may be the large amount of BTS, but don't let it fool you--as girls-only content goes they do not disappoint.
I do wish they would be more consistent in releases though. They still have a habit of letting members vote on models' scenes to determine release order and this can mean months before a model's whole shoot is available, and some just never gets released at all. I guess this is a good thing--so much content that there's not enough time to release it all--but I would like to see it eventually. And as unique as some of their content is it can get predictably routine; toy A into slot b, and so on.
But damn if they don't make it look hot time and time again with each new model they find and corrupt. All these years and I'm still sold! :-P
