-Many attractive models
-Decent sized site overall
-Navigation is good
-Good variety of softcore, lesbian, hardcore
-Camerawork is generally good
-Zips of photosets, newer ones in 3 quality levels
-Newer videos are of respectable quality, typically 4 options available (SD wmv, HD mp4, SD mp4, and portable), I generally downloaded SD mp4
-No DRM, download managers work, respectable biller
-Most girls are natural
-Frequent updates, generally a photo and video set every day
-Sort of expensive
-No network access, no bonus sites
-Older videos and photos are substandard quality and older movies are often split in parts
-Not a lot of diversity in model body type or ethnicity
-HD scenes seem larger file-size wise than they have to be
-A fair amount (maybe 1/5 or so) of the video material is "behind the scenes" type of stuff, I don't mind it, but could be a negative for some
-Some material is not exclusive
Generally I think this site is pretty good, but not great. I sort of don't get the whole setup of all the ATK sites, what makes this one premium, is this site exclusively the hot girls? In general, I guess this is the case compared to some of their other sites as the hot/wtf ratio seems to be a good bit higher.
I liked the material here for the most part, but for some reason felt a bit disappointed here. Can't really put my finger on why. Most sites I join, I spend a fair amount more time poking around and checking things out, but I got tired of this one pretty fast for some reason. That isn't to say that they don't have some good material here, they certainly do, I just wasn't super-excited by it I guess.
As for the site itself, the navigation is pretty good: model index, scene ratings, scene tags, it is pretty easy to get around. The girls are generally of the thinner more natural body types, and they have both American and Euro stars.
Overall, I think I would recommend joining this site to those that never had before, but I don't know that I would recommend it as a repeat join even given the update schedule. They seem to do most things very well, and the models are generally quite attractive, so it is certainly worth a look.
Just an FYI, for those with the time and the extra $3.99, the trial cross sell to amkingdom is full access with no limits, so at least you can get two sites (briefly) for $34. Connection timeouts are long, so you can queue up the DL manager for quite a bit.
There is a clear cut division between those who love full body hair and those who like things more moderate eg. possible pit and pussy hair but no more than that.
Just to make a decision easier for either side here is a clear statement of intent by ATKowner addressed to someone who expressed a desire to see an otherwise gorgeous model without her heavy leg hair:
ATKOwner to xxxx:
I doubt very much if Monica would consider shaving her legs and to be honest with you we would not pass on such a request to her as we are about promoting hairyness in women. So we generally encourage women to grow out if they are willing but not the other way around.
This one seemed to come out of the blue. I haven't joined any ATK sites for years and don't recall getting any offers from them in the past. But there's now a $12.99 a month offer sitting in my inbox. So, if you've ever considered joining this one, check your inbox and spam.

1) Hair is paramount. If'un you like hair on broads, then here you won't be disappointed.
2) Site boast of having millions of pictures. Well, bully for them. I'd have to say that might be a bit of a stretch.
3) Claims to be 12 times the size of any other hairy site. Does it also mean 12 times the cost?
4) zip files for downloads. Small watermarks on pics, larger on videos. No DRM.
5) Promotion touts of having 1577 models.
Well, I guess if they say so .....
6) 5,549 videos. Could be, but the 30 days I was there they musta been in hiding.
7) Updates appear to roll in as promoted.
8) HD on more recent shoots.
9) Some very pretty gals are in the lineup, European, Asian, Latina and American; predictably, a lotta plain-Jane's are there, too. Then there are those who're are just plain ugly.
10) You have solo, soft core, toy, boy/girl hardcore, and lesbian.
1) Sometimes I'd corralled a beauty only to suddenly see her wander off somewhere.
2) Poor selection of medias, having WMV pitted against two other unknowns.
3) Streaming went smoothly, however, Buffering was unceasingly long and tedious.
4) From my viewpoint, I thought the video-shoots and directing sorely lacked the quality subscribers deserved.
5)Same-'olé-same-'olé .....what with too many and long closeups, and particularly ones that dwell on the genitalia. I can only assume The guy shooting just falls asleep at his camera. The man must belong to a damed good union.
6) Small watermarks on pics, bigger ones but none obtrusive on videos
7) Maybe it's my lack of electronic wizardry, but I simply couldn't find the combination to opening pics on a full screen.
Prepare to stare at a lot of hair.
Hair here, hair there, hair everywhere.
Nary model dare to be hair-bare, and that's fair
(jus' thought I'd throw that in)
I went for this $21 deal because I strongly favor seeing natural hair where it's supposed to be on women. It's sexier, more erotic, and adds that important element of realism to the scenes.
This site does a very good job of giving us that, but sadly, eroticism falls woefully short. For one thing, the girls move around too much. No sooner than I get into a clip than the model jumps up and leaps onto something else. Another erotic spoiler is the over-use of smiles ....I know readers don't share or agree to that, but when a gal is in the throes of sexual release, smiles ought to be minimal.! They're necessary I know, but porn isn't Comedy Central and I just don't find them compatible with serious porn.
Cameramen and directors here tend to follow the same old trend that shooting genital closeups are gold. When, for crying out loud, will these numb-nuts wise up and give us a break, already?..... Thanks to vaginal over-exposure I think I now know more about the female pussies than my x-wife's gynecologist.
In my judgment, I'd recommend this site for all who wants to see hair. Otherwise, it's just plain-old generic porn.
Admittedly, I got a bang-for-my-buck for what I paid, but I don't think I'd opt for thirty.
I like to keep my eye on this site, just to see if it is worthwhile re-subscribing, and noticed that the latest updates listed on the tour are from December 29, 2012. Could a member please clue me in if the updates are still on a daily basis. Thanks.

Vast amount of old Aunt Judys/Older women material stored in the archives.
Very much improved members' page under the new management of ATK.
Much improved quality in Hi-Res picture sets and an even more startling improvement in videos over those offered by “Older Women” in the past. Most updates (except remastered ones) are now in true HD.
Same excellent search engine as in the other ATK sites.
Access to ATK Lounge.
No download restrictions.
Fast download speeds ... however, read below.
Streaming a video is discouraged, so that more bandwidth is available for downloads. Despite my fast download speeds (max of my modem) navigation within the site was sluggish.***
Download managers are not allowed. I wasn't sure if Firefox' DTA, when downloading one video at a time, was considered to be a true manager and used it consistently without being stopped. If I crossed the line, my apologies to the new managers of the site. ***
*** This was only recommended during the first few days. Streaming and Download Managers are now allowed. Score upgraded by 5.
Updates are a mixture of Aunt Judy and “bonus” picture sets and videos imported from ATK Natural and Hairy (Mature Hairy). This has caused complaints from those who are subscribing to both sites at the same time. I was surprised myself when I downloaded some picture sets and found that I had them already from a previous membership to ATK N&H.
I must confess that it was a disappointing month for me. I had received an email by the old "Aunt Judys/Older Women” site offering me a membership for $ 9.95 a month (recurring), with the notification that the site was now under new management. I had not liked AJ/OW for a long time because the “tease and erotic factor” had declined dramatically over the past few years, but could not resist .. just to see how ATK would do with one of my formerly favorite sites.
My first impression was and still is: not ready for prime time. Without the imports from “Mature Hairy” their updates would be very skimpy but what saddens me more is that ATK's new content is every bit as bland as that of the former site in its dying years. And no I am not calling for hardcore material, just for more excitement in the solos.
This might appear to be a very unfair assessment when viewed from the “web owner's“ side but I have to repeat once again that any review, especially that of a layman, has to be subjective so take my score with a grain of salt. Not everyone feels the way I do. And I still believe that the new management will eventually create a very attractive site. If it will be for me remains to be seen.
Old AJ (pre 2007 or so): lots and lots of enticing lingerie, or a prolonged strip, on attractive “housewifey” models.
New AJ/OW (until take-over by ATK): most models came with three very basic items of clothing that they would take off within the first few pictures of a set, or within a couple of minutes if it was a video.
New ATK AJ: same thing, which can make a set very boring unless one absolutely loves a model and collects her, no matter how utilitarian and sparse her attire may be.
My old complaint, as in so many other sites, is that the tease factor has disappeared and, without that, so has my libido when it comes to most sets or videos. There are only so many positions you can place a naked body in so, why give them so little to wear and why undress them so quickly. At least if you dressed the women in more than the “bare” essentials there would be a difference from set to set.
I let the subscription lapse (yesterday was my last day) despite the low price because I could not find any picture sets during the past month that truly excited me. I gave some of them high marks because of the model herself, or because of factors like quality and lighting and crispness of picture etc. Or because of the way the photographer posed his models but it was done half-heartedly.
I sincerely hope that the pendulum will eventually swing back to the way things were and that at least one set from a shoot will contain a nice strip or lingerie.
I signed up for a trial at the end of August. Today I was going through my mail on the address I use for signups. Low and behold I found some from "mr-reviews" list, that said I had signed up on the same date as my trial started (and using my real name)...
Current Member for over 1 year (at the time of review).
looks like there are many more (and more voluminous) updates going up (daily now), and the new higher-res videos are cool too.
the site seems to be slightly underperforming in the "mom next door" type, which had been AuntJudys big strength over the years (though this seems to be getting better with each passing update). i have also seen a few sasquatch types (renee) that were pretty unappealing. there was also an african american model that seemed a bit too "ooga booga"
if they can really stay true to the AuntJudy mom-next-door-type and keep up the improved update schedule, i think this will be the best mature site on the net.
Updates are below par for ATK sites and just as unimaginative as the later Aunt Judys/Older Women ones. You may take the unimaginative with a grain of salt. Not everyone has my taste.
There are also careless mistakes like labeling a video of a 33 year old woman as that of a 21 year old MILF.** Okay, that is nit picking but still indicates to me that not enough care is taken when it comes to descriptions etc.
** Added 5pm ADT: Just found out, after downloading said video, that it does not deserve the label HD. Picture may be 1080p but is way too soft and blurry.
Streaming no longer works even though you can still click on it but it will do nothing but buffer forever without going anywhere. This is not a glitch but was done on purpose in order to help increase server download speed.
Download managers are forbidden.
Site has potential. I love how they have changed it to the same look as that of all the other ATK sites. I love that videos are now available at 1080p, but seeing that all the old AJ/OW videos were technically inferior and the updates of videos are relatively slow compared to other mature sites I would give this "new site" a few months before I joined, to allow them to build up a reasonable inventory. I am sure, given ATKs record, that it will be an excellent site eventually.
As of today AJ's is now ATKAuntJudys.com. The former owners admit quite readily that they haven't done that great a job over the past little while and that they are happy to have ATKingdom manage their affairs from now on. The site has been restructured to resemble the other ATK sites but will concentrate on mature women with much of the material being from the mature part of ATK Natural and Hairy. Hope it will work out for them because AJs quite frankly has been sadly lacking in quality over the past few years, especially in the video department.
Maybe this ol' timer is a bit late.
But been a member here several times - and like the site. What I did not like was the terrible preview.
Just went there - and wow - "now you're talking"...
Anybody been here, since Claypaws good review in June?
And if so...?
This is one site that used to be in my rotation. First as "Aunt Judy's" then as a super site including "Older Women," plus videos, but I haven't subscribed in a long time because their videos (among other things) were so inadequate last time I was a member.
Does anyone know it they now have true HD movies for download?
They do mention 720p at a 3500 bitrate in their preview but are they good quality, true HD (in other words crisp and clear in full picture now)? Thanks!
And for a change ... something positve from me about this site!
I just re-subscribed, motivated by the positive comments of people I trust, and am delighted with what I have found so far. Plenty of mature models! Hooray! Plenty of mature models in lingerie! Hooray again! I just got finished with a download spree .. and if ATK should not publish anything else of interest to me for the rest of my subscription I already got my money's worth this evening.
Thanks for listening to your subscribers, ATK. Quite the change and improvement since I last reviewed you.
BTW, I just found a treasure trove of sets and videos of Eden, one of my all time favorites. Delight in site increased ten fold.

-2500 models (no silicone), 24750 photo sets, 2,690,000 photos, 7835 videos. -80% exclusive (see bottom line).
-Many attractive models and lots of total stunners (but I do not like more than 10% of the models here or anywhere else).
-10 softcore photo sets per model per photographer per shoot plus some hardcore.
-Many repeat visits from models.
-Photosets in three resolutions (Not all on older sets): 1024, 1500-1600, 3000 with full and custom zips.
-Updates: 5x12 photosets (80-200pics each) and 2x14 videos (10 to 20 min ave 15min each) videos per week. i.e. 60 photo sets and 28 videos per week,
-Videos in several formats, inc "HD mp4" (1280x720 @ 6Mbps. 1920x1080 starting to appear) and streaming.
-Good model directory and search facility.
-Opt-in for newsletter and promos.
-Customisable for viewing sizes etc.
-Works with Firefox and DownThemAll and FDM (see Reply #1).
-Bills via CCBill - no regional pricing
-Links time out after a few hours.
-Some technically flawed colour (but most is good).
-Size not indicated on video download links. So, if you go for "HD mp4", you do not know if it is 720p or 1080p until you have downloaded it.
-Pages can be very slow to load, especially the thumbnail pages, but zip download speeds are good. It is best to choose 20 thumbs per page rather than "all".
-Although download managers are allowed and work fine (tested with FDM), see Reply #1 for some cautions.
- No "mature" models (but site does not claim to have them)
-"Themes" such as "Lingerie" or "Uniforms" are incidental, not central.
-Some non exclusive content for some photographers such as Fred or Defrancesco.
ATK Galleria (ATKG) has been my "gold standard" for about 12 years and it still is. There are a lot of statistics in the pros and cons, above, so it might be more useful if I explain here why I like Galleria so much.
I collect photos and I see it as primarily a photo site, despite its huge number of videos. Nubiles is stronger on video quality. If you prefer softcore teen video, with masturbation or toys, and are happy with 4 vids per model, Nubiles is the place. You might come to ATKG to add to those.
As far as photos go, ATKG operates in the same general genre as KarupsPC, KarupsHA and Nubiles but it has generally better quality and a very much larger quantity: four times as many images as Nubiles, twice as many as MetArt. It seems reasonable that signup gives you access just to ATKG and not to the ATK Network.
One thing I really love is the many repeat shootings for a lot of its models. You get 10 softcore photosets whenever a photographer shoots the model. If she is shot again, and she often is, you get another 10 photo sets. Those may be from the same photographer a year later or from a different one. Hardcore sets, if any, are on top of that count. Riley Reid, for example, has 43 photo sets and 9 videos here. That is 13 hardcore photo sets plus two separate shoots of 10 softcore sets from one photographer and a 10 set shoot from a second. Her videos span the same two photographers and include toys, hardcore, lesbian, behind the scenes and a camshow recording.
All photo sets for each model go up between one day and a week apart. Videos are less predictable and not all models do them.
Of the nearly 25000 photo sets, photographer Fred's 1600 sets and Denys Defrancesco's 1000 sets are largely not exclusive. But the rest are, as far as I can tell. So I guess 80% exclusive overall.
ATKG is nothing like MetArt, Femjoy or any of the artsy sites. Shoots are amateur in style, professional quality but not glossy. Girls are committed and enthusiastic and engage with the viewer. Some toy use but most sets do not involve toys. Almost all start clothed, if sometimes scantily, and end full nude but sometimes get there after 20 images of a 150 image set. The journey is less important than the destination at ATKG but you do get some tease in most shoots and explicit shots with direct eye contact, provocative facial expressions, minimal looking down or away and plenty of finger spreading pussy.
There are "themes" such as Uniforms, Lingerie, Upskirts and Panties, Babes, Amateurs, Coeds, Masturbation, Toys, Foot fetish, Nudism, Lesbian, Watersports, Action. But some of those are pretty loosely defined. I often cannot even tell what the softcore theme was when I look at the downloaded set.
Take lingerie. The girl may be wearing some under some everyday clothes or she may start in it. She strips via a short tease but without the emphasis on the sensuality of the lingerie that you would get on a fetish site.
ATK's tour gives away a massive amount of actual content. Click the "visit site" link from this PU page, go to the bottom right of the page you arrive at and click the ATKingdom thumbnail. It takes you to their free site on which you will find about 80 full size (3000x2000) images from Galleria, 80 from ATK Hairy and some from Premium, all from their most recent sets and changed every week. There are no sample videos there, suggesting a bias towards photos. At the top of the page from "visit site", you have the whole model directory, which shows how many photo sets and videos every model has.
ATKG shows the work of 97 photographers from around the world. Its women are shaved, aged between 18 and 45, but most are young. There are only 15 models aged over 30. 1300 aged 18-20, 1030 21-23. Some models have tattoos or piercings but there is no silicone here. Most are Caucasian girl-next-door types (only 5 black and 11 Asian) and there is a separate site for ethnics - ATK Exotics - with a separate subscription. Some of the Galleria models also appear on the other ATK sites but without duplication of actual photo sets or videos. e.g. she might be shaved here but have hairy sets on ATK Hairy. Note that, if a model is on ATK Petites, membership there gives you her Galleria content too. But not vice versa.
I highly recommend ATKG as a large and high quality source of explicit softcore photo sets, in overtly sexual and amateur (but not amateurish) style. It will specially appeal to anyone who wants everything they can find of a loved model. I believe 96 is valid for what the tour area makes clear you will find.
But if your main thing is softcore video, score 86. There is bg and gg but it does not come over as a hardcore site. If you prefer those, score 80. And there is none with a story line here. It is plain sex. As I am not interested in bg, gg or video, it is hard for me to evaluate them. If you want fetish themes, score 76.

A large selection of attractive, exotic models.
Nice and crisp photography.
Fair to good HD videos (depending on photographer).
Huge daily updates (5 picture sets Monday-Friday, 1 retro picture set on Saturday, 10 movies on Sundays)
Excellent download speeds for me.
Very attractive home page.
Be warned, I decided to be very subjective, most ATK Exotics subscribers may vehemently disagree:
There is a deadly sameness to most picture sets even though the skin color varies. See bottom line.
I would prefer to have video updates on a daily basis rather than having to wait one week for the next update. I think a change there would be very important to those of us whose taste changed from collecting pictures to videos.
Saturday's update is dedicated to picture sets from their archives. Last week they were all dated 2005. This might be a plus for some and would be for me if they were in today's high resolution.
I still don't understand this “volume” business after many subscriptions to ATK's sites.
An email sent to support over five days ago never brought an acknowledgment.
I really thought I was done with mixed picture/video sites, especially those whose emphasis is heavily on pictures, but a very attractive email offer showed up and I couldn't resist, figuring that a site with such a vast amount of material would have some sets that would re-ignite my interest in pictures.
There are some sets where the model wears a pretty nightie or other lingerie (mostly cotton panties) but those sets are exceedingly rare and when you do run across them chances are the model divests herself of same nightie or lingerie within the first ten pictures.
What this site amounts to is a heap of nice, fresh, good looking young ladies of all ethnic stripes wearing similar three items consisting of an abbreviated top, bottom (jeans or cut-offs) and panties or bras alternating, seldom does one see both together on one model.
Okay, you can add a pair of shoes or sneakers and make it four. Five with sox! But it all comes off on page one, page two at the latest!
There is no teasing, there is not enough clothing to make the set a good strip sequence, it is mostly simply a casual taking off of the few aforementioned items, and then on to a drawn out series of pictures showing the nude model from all angles. One could remove two thirds of these pictures and still have a complete set.
There is also a great misunderstanding on ATK's part of what “upskirt” really means, as only one example of inaccurate tagging. To most of us it has always meant a shot taken from floor level of the pantied (or naked) crotch above, but here it means everyone who spreads their legs with panties on. They might even start out in Jeans, but the tag says “upskirt.”
In ATK's defense, it is not because of any of their sites (and I've subscribed to most) that I quit collecting pictures, nor do I mean to imply that they are worse than most, since other picture sites are using identical dress and identical ways of shooting a model.
Not a single one of them seems to think that lingerie might be important to anyone nowadays and they might very well be right judging by all the sets designated “hot,” but this review is written for those like me who like “erotic” sets and might be disappointed because they don't find them.
To those who do like young and pretty models who can't be bothered with the inconvenience of putting on more than the bare essentials, this site is recommended!
It is also recommended for the technical quality of its pictures and videos alike, as well as for their generous daily updates.
It is a good site but not for anyone over thirty who likes a bit of spice (meaning erotic lingerie) along with their pretty women.
I left out the technical details because they are mentioned in other reviews and also because, for once, I wanted to drop objectivity in order to voice a purely personal, subjective beef when it comes to picture sites and the current state of erotic photography.
I did keep the score itself high because if would be unfair to make the site suffer because of my personal prejudices.
