I like the AT sites although I haven't joined them in years (I keep finding a way to put it off). I'm glad to see they decided to network all of their sites. However, it's priced at $99 a month. Really! Most of us don't have that kind of porn budget and even if I did I'd basically be forced to get a DL manager and a big ass external hard drive and just rip the whole damn thing in order to get the content. Way too expensive. Their marketing team needs to come up with a new model on this one.
...none of the links work. There aren't even any hyperlinks when hovering over the link to the discount, the one that says to check out ATKGirlfriends.com or even the one for "ask us here". I've tried three different browsers and there's just no reaching the site through my email. Seems someone at ATK needs to learn some basic HTML.
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.
Been a member of 3 or 4 ATK sites over the years - and some of it is in the league where I want to go back.
BUT: Still a bit confused about which site does what (except from the special deals like Petites, Hairy and Exotics...)
My favorite used to be Galleria - but the "Archives" has much more content - is that only "amateurs"???
BTW: to Khan or others at TBP here: You missed the "K" for Galleria in the TBP profile....
I just received a special offer that would give me this site for free if I re-subscribed to ATK Natural and Hairy. I know I haven't been too complimentary when it comes to the latter but if Archives is any good it would be worth considering the offer.
So, here's the question: Does "archives" stand for mainly outdated formats like 800x600 px for picture sets and 640x480 for videos, or is there newer stuff to be found? Thanks!

Very very a lot of photographs and a lot of movies.
Amateur women who have not seen on other sites.
Women in various countries.
Convenient retrieval function.
There are a lot of small size movies.
There is no discount even if becoming a member on the site in the same company.
However, it proposes some trails.
I like this site.
A lot of healthy photographs of amateur women are very wonderful.
It is natural or this site looks like ATK Galleria.
There are a lot of works of wonderful photographers as well as ATK Galleria.
A convenient retrieval function is the same.
Many of movies on this site are small.
However, the photograph is wonderful. The amount and the quality are good.
I enjoyed this site very much as well as ATK Galleria.
I recommend the inexperienced person to see ATK Galleria first.
It wants to enjoy it enough, and to recommend it to the person who likes the photograph by all means.
As for me, the member of ATK Galleria became before it became a member on this site. And, it is a member of ATK Exotics now.
Meanwhile, they proposed the trail of ATK Natural & Hairy and ATK Premium to me.
I enjoyed it very much on the site where both were good.
However, I wanted them to propose subscribing for one month of a little discount.
I think this to be different by the person.
When the subscription can be chosen for one month of a trail or a little discount, it is very glad.
Club Seventeen and Reality Kings propose the extended contract in a very good condition to me. It is glad.
Recently, the proposal that the company that made this site gave me is to subscribe to all sites for one month for about 90 dollars. It is not so glad. I did not contract.
Perhaps, I think that I become a member on this site again.
I joined this site when they sent out the mailers to former ATK members offering $9.99/mo membership - and at that price, this site is very much worth it.
ATK's editorial position seems to be that virtually every woman alive that is willing to pose nude should be used as a model - so I find that I have to do a LOT of clicking in order to find models that I am interested in seeing much of - and I frequently click away quickly wishing that I hadn't seen what I just did. I'm not a fan of their Natural & Hairy site - not my thing at all - and there's a lot of that material here.
But there's a large number of sets of Sarah Blake. There are a lot of sets of Sandra Shine. And there are a lot of real "finds" if you are willing to click until you find babes that are hot.
The presentation of new material doesn't give you much of a clue as to what you'll find when you click - and the presentation of the vids is so - well, crappy - and there are so many unattractive models on this site (for my tastes) that I'm not even bothering to look at vids.
But I like finding new babes and hidden jewels so I plan on sticking around - they are currently posting material with a copyright date of 2004 so I'm sure that there will be lots of good stuff to come - and members of this site certainly don't need to worry about a dearth of updates, which come at a rate of 75 or so per week.

- Enormous amount of material
- Great search options
- Huge variety of model types
- Categorized sections
- Easy to navigate
- Much of the material is dated, with small pics and grainy video quality, but that's to be expected since this is an Archive.
- Vid clips are too small and scattered in a sometimes confusing manner.
There is so much content on all of the ATK sites that even with a fast connection you simply can't get to all of it without an extended membership, and even if you had one for several months I doubt you could get through all of it, since they update so frequently. All you can do is dive in, come up with some kind of systematic approach to consuming the material, and hope you're not missing something.
Because of the amount of content, it would be nice if ATK had a member forum so people could give each other a heads-up on certain models or videos which are outstanding, or advice to one another about finding what we like. For instance, if you like panties, search for R. Williams; white cotton panties, R. Field; downblouse, upskirts, and panties, Marco P; in-your-face butt-shots, LIL, and so on. Each photographer has his/her own particular bent and style.
Twenty-five dollars is a drop in the bucket for this kind of feast. Don't under-estimate the Archives. There is a huge amount of excellent material here.
96 was too high. Always thought so, finally fixed it.

Excellent photography (Newer sets), Older sets reflect technology available at the time.
Huge selection of girls
Excellent value for the money.
Very good navigation
Sets featured here are no longer available on ATK's main websites.
Quality of web videos looks increasingly outdated by todays standards.
Just a few years ago ATK Galleria and ATK Hairy were two of the best amateur sites out there. These sites featured a huge selection of mostly American girl next door amateurs. However, in recent years the use of European babe types has increased dramatically. Finding a real amateur American girl on these sites is now more of an exception then a rule. Anyway, if you have never seen the old ATK websites, the ATK archives is a treasure trove of the type of material that made ATK famous. Even if you previously visited the older ATK sites, you might want to revisit the Archives to see some of your old favorites.
I will admit, some of the older material from the late 90's does look a bit primitive compared to today's technology, but they are still worth viewing and you can see the improvement in quality as you move forward through the years. I highly recommend this site.

This site lives up to its name, featuring exotic women in mostly softcore photosets and videos.
-very impressive ethnic talent pool
-generally high quality photography
-new shoots in 3000x2000 photo resolution
-new videos in 1080P
-credit is given to the photographer or videographer in a watermark
-excellent work this year by photographers JSP and GBP
-commonly features stripping, closeups, girl on girl, fingering, and dildos
-less commonly but consistently features peeing
-rare boy on girl, blowjobs, and anal
-all original content is online back to 2001
Some of these cons have been mentioned in previous reviews and they continue:
-search, tags, and categories still give incomplete results
-a small number of scenes are moved between this and the other ATK sites every year
-reposted archive content is not remastered
-favorite photographers Alicia S and BMB/Wanton Productions haven't produced anything this year
This is an amazing site, and one of my absolute favorites. I love to see beautiful women of all ethnicities in porn, and it is a rare site that features women as ethnically diverse as ATKExotics. ATKExotics is also the only site that consistently features high quality photos of ethnically diverse women peeing. So if you want to see many beautiful women from all around the world taking a pee in high quality photos, ATKExotics is basically your only option.
ATKExotics has produced some of my absolute favorite scenes, and they are still going strong. London Storm's peeing scene shot by Alicia S is one that I will never forget. She leans back with her legs spread, and smiles while she shoots a dark yellow stream straight up in the air, then lets it pool in her spread pussy and holds it open for some closeups. Unforgettable! Classic style for Alicia S!
One of my concerns is that there haven't been any new Alicia S scenes posted that were shot in 2015. All of her scenes posted this year were shot in previous years. BMB/Wanton is another studio that hasn't posted anything new on ATK for a while. It will be a loss if Alicia S and BMB/Wanton are done with ATK, but there are some new photographers who are really stepping up their game. JSP and GBP have produced all my favorite scenes in 2015, and I hope they keep going strong with the peeing scenes. Marco P made some incredible peeing scenes in 2014, and he is still producing new scenes, so I am eagerly awaiting his first pee scene of the year. I would also love to see more pee scenes from Pout Productions and Amy.
While not clearly a pro or a con, it is often noted in reviews that the scenes tend to follow a recognizable ATK format. It involves a solo model stripping down in a casual setting with various poses and closeups of the tits and pussy. I personally like this format, because I enjoy closeups, and the format ensures that closeups get taken. I also understand why others find it repetitive. There is plenty of variety if you look for it though, primarily in the types of acts featured in the scenes. There is also variation in the skill of photographers if you really look for it. There is not much variation in the style of photography though, for example there aren't any glam or flashy photos, and the goal seems to be realism.
One of the most interesting aspects of ATK is the acknowledgement of individual photographers. They all produce many sets in the classic ATK style, but then there are other sets where you can see the individual style of the photographer. I'm really glad they do this, because I can recognize that out of the dozens of photographers contributing to the site, my favorites come from a small handful. It would be great if the photographers were featured even more prominently on the site. For example, I think many members would like it if each active photographer had a page with some background info and also a section for comments and requests. Without this feature, I might make some posts asking for more peeing shoots for example, but how would that be acted upon? If there were the ability to post requests to individual photographers, I could limit that type of request to the 5 or so photographers who have produced peeing shoots over the past couple of years, and maybe get a dialogue going with some influence on the shoots themselves.
One downside that was mentioned in previous reviews is the unreliable search, tag, and category functions. If I relied solely on these functions to find their peeing content, for example, I would miss about half of it. The only way to find every shoot that suits your tastes is still to review them all, one by one, start to finish. I can only take so many points for this though, because it is much better to have the best content with a poor search function that it is to have poor content that is searchable with accuracy.
They also occasionally repost older content or content from other ATK sites as updates. I am a fan of this when it is content that was previously offline, but what is the point of just bumping up older shoots in the list of updates? If production is slow for any given week and this has to be done, it would be great if the older shoots were at least remastered.
All in all, I am extremely satisfied with ATK Exotics. They are the only site that I would give a 100% for their talent pool of models. I am wondering what the situation is with Alicia S and BMB/Wanton Photography - are they really done? I would also love to see more peeing scenes from JSP, GBP, and Marco P. This is a site that I will keep coming back too!

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.

- A re-review that I didn't think was needed until I used the new format of the site some more, one of the biggest collections of exotic women on the internet and the new format of the website makes the site work much better than before.
- Newer videos have a 1280x720 HD option, a small (.mp4) version, a standard .mp4 version and a standard .wmv version. Older videos have standard DVD resolution with .wmv and .mov files.
- New site formatting and layout is really nice. This may be hard for some to appreciate unless you were a member back in say 2007-2009. BL will expand on this.
- Newer picture sets are 3000 high end and come zipped, also has a custom zip option. Most of all the photo sets are at least 1500 long end, outside of the random very old sets.
- Search engine has improved greatly.
- Pictures, retain an amateur feel...done professionally.
- This one will also show up in cons, about 75% of the time, site is giving me 100% max download speed, very impressive.
- The biggest con is one I don't think I had ran into on here before, but the improved search engine could be making it easier to find these by accident. I understand that exotic means "different" to some, but women with hairy armpits and hairy arms and hairy legs have a place on ATK Hairy. I will go into it more in BL.
- I am still impressed by the update schedule that I talked about in my previous comment on this site, but it may be a little different than it first appeared to me, one of the day's updates, each week, looks to be from ATK Archives and while I listed 10 videos each week in the previous comment, it then dropped to 8 the very next week, then went up to 9 this past week. It's not a big con, but I did want to note the change.
- Only other one, sometimes the site is painfully slow. I do think 80% fast, 20% slow is pretty accurate. When it's in the slow speed state, I have to download 4 files at once to reach 75% of my max download speed.
The majority of my feelings towards this new version or format of ATK Exotics are very positive. I don't remember how many updates they used to have, but it definitely seems like they are updating more than I remember and the addition of HD .mp4 files on the videos is nice though I have never looked to the ATK sites for videos, preferring their photo sets. The videos are improving too though.
I want to go into the one big con since it's purely subjective. I had noticed messmer's comments on ATK Hairy, about how some of the sets were going with too much hairy. I'm not against pubic hair and do prefer some pubic hair. I don't really care for the full bush, but if the model is hot enough, the full bush won't even completely turn me away. What's the deal with the women with more underarm hair than me? A few even have the outline of mustaches. I understand that it is natural for some women to have more body hair than others, but lets have them with their arm up in their thumbnail.
Seriously, it's a very big turn-off. I noticed one of the hairy underarm ones has her arm up in her thumbnail. That's not too bad to see since it's a small picture. I think the re-review score would have been a little higher if I hadn't started running into these extremely hairy models.
It's not a big con on the updates including a day of Archive content, but I did want to mention it as well as the movies going from 10 a week for 2-3 weeks straight then dropping to 8 then up a little to 9. Neither of these would stop me from recommending or re-joining the site since I think the site does most everything right.
Onto the good, I really can't say enough for the positive changes in the site. I don't know when these changes went into effect, but they weren't completely there the last time I was member which was in January 2011. The search engine is much better as well though they still have the tags I don't see as very useful, but the ethnicity tags seem to be working perfectly and it's a multiple tier search so you can easily search for "Latina" then specify the year "2011" and it works.
Also am very happy to see them doing more sets of black women. They did some in the past, but now, at least for this month, the black models are getting as much coverage as any of the other ethnic groups.
Glad also to see the HD videos. I also don't think ATK's sites need to go to 1920x1080. Even though I download the videos of the models I like, I prefer ATK's pictures of them and the videos are just like icing on the cake at their sites so 1280x720 is plenty good for me, they also are not the overly huge files, most of the HD ones are running in the 500 MB range.
I tried the custom zip feature out. I don't think I remember a site having this that I have been on or I may have missed it in the past. You click to create a custom zip and it lets you pick what resolution you want, though this changes based on if there is a higher resolution available. You then see the images in the set and click each one you want added to the zip. Pretty nifty feature. It reminds me of Videobox's old "make your own clip" feature.
One thing I noticed that the new format has improved. I am finding models from 2006 that I did not have in my collection that I wanted. I do think this is because of the much easier to use site and search engine, but it's just as much showing how bad the old format and search engine were too.
It's hard to believe in this day and age of porn sites refusing change, that just 3 years ago this site's navigation was terrible, they only offered photo zips in parts and more times than not, I would visit it daily for the first week then wouldn't go back until near the end of the membership. This time, I have visited daily and allowed it to recur because there have been so many models that I have missed in the past that I can now find. They deserve the praise for that. Do something with the hairy models, like keep them on ATK Hairy or even slap a "Hairy armpits" icon on them. I don't mind that others like that, but I doubt those who do and join a site like ATK Hairy would want to see quite a few perfectly shaven models either on it.
In closing, the speed of the site and speed of downloads is seemingly the best I have seen when it's going good. I hadn't seen my download speed go that high on any site, but it does have its slow time which could just be peak hours. It's a fair enough trade off since the fast time is more frequent than the slow.
On recommending it, I would recommend it over all exotic/ethnic model photo sites now and even to those who have been a member in the past because it does come off as a whole new site. They also do have a few free cam shows each month, but they're never on when I have access to the computer.
I had noticed the comments about the ATK sites receiving overhauls and the Santa Claus of porn sent me a promo offer to rejoin so I was a bit, happily, surprised at the new changes. Everything now looks nice and colorful, easy on the eyes too. It doesn't feel like I'm looking at a site that hasn't been changed since 1998. So the initial appearance of the new format gets an A. The models are improving too, in my opinion, I have already found a couple I hadn't seen anywhere before, that have over 2,000 photos each already.
The update schedule is now much clearer and easier to find. By my count they are updating with 7 photo sets per day on Monday-Saturday and 10 videos on Sunday.
That's an impressive update count, 42 photo sets and 10 videos per week.
The newest pictures, tried 3 different sets from 3 different studios, seem to be coming in at a consistent 3000 long end resolution.
The newer videos have an HD option that is 1280x720 and they do run very smoothly. I had been having some problems with HD videos causing odd color blotches during playback.
Very impressed overall so far with this longtime favorite that I've had my share of complaints about over the years. The site is finally catching up to the models. I may even give Galleria a try after several years of being away since this one has impressed me this much with its changes.

Has potential. Not much airbrushing.
Over the top photo editing. Diminished detail due to photo editing.
My biggest gripes are with the:
1)pic's quality 2)photographers who ruins the pics (content) with way too much editing 3)whoever directs the poses, setting, lighting, etc.
Photo editing / manipulation. So often I ran across photos that were over edited, they were edited so much that I couldn't edit them to make them look better on my computer. These photos were so much that the models hair would have no detail and would blend in with black backgrounds. There would be deep dark shadows on their skin ruining details. Too much editing takes away detail. Natural photos are wonderful.
There were plenty occasions that some of the models had unnatural colors. Such as, red or orange skin. They looked more alien that natural. Those were mainly older pics, but some of the newer ones had similar features. I think that was probably due to editing.
Poses / Setting...ect
For the most part, every model has the same expression. All they do is smile, some smile really hard. Nothing wrong with smiling – but they need to mix it up. Like: frown, smile, no expression, lick tongue out. Most importantly, try to look sexy or nasty.
The same hair style, especially on the black woman. A model will have 10 different photo shoots and will have the very same hair style on every single shoot. Example: Amber . Mix it up for crying out loud. I don't care if they wear a wig – just mix it up.
Every photo shoot should have at least one good shot with great clarity of:
1)(full body nude shot with good clarity/detail) standing or lying down
2)(boob shot) from the waist up to include the cute face of the model
3) (vagina shot) model laying down on back with legs spread open, but also with her face in view without being out-of-focus. Kind of like a missionary pose.
There were some many times that I was waiting for a good shot of a model with legs spread, but I was left dissapointed because the model would have her hand covering up her vagina on 10 pics with none of her fully exposed. It's ok to tease, but show me what I want to see somewhere in there.
The are times that you want to see a model nude laying on her back, but on ATK they would either have the vagina in focus with the face out of focus or the other way around. Very frustrating.
Sometimes there are pics put on the site and the whole picture is out of focus or with the face blurry as if the photographer or the model was moving while pic was being taken. Why would something be put on the site like that.
The lighting in much of the photos is so bright that I cannot see any detail off the boobs. This is mainly for the white woman. A good photographer can compensate for that during the shoot.
Wide screen pics. In these days computer monitors and TVs are wide screens – not square.
If a model is sitting against the wall with her legs spread, why would you clip off the legs. The full pic would fit perfectly on a wide screen tv. Legs are nice – don't take them out of the pic.
Why are there so many pics of just one body part? So many times while I'm looking for one good pic of a model that I like, I can't find one, yet there's 10 pics of her leg, foot, or of a single tit.
There are two different sign-ins for the forums and the actual atk photo site. What gives? If I want to comment on a photo, I don't want to have to log in to a different site.
There should be a link were we can ask a question directly to the photographers or at least were we can give feedback. There should be an option to comment on a photo or photo sets while viewing it without having to go to another site.
The entire site needs a new design. I have never gone to a porn site were everything seems old. The navigation is terrible. The site seems like a forgotten site where no one cares to update it.
Every single gripe that I wrote about are wide spread throughout the website – yes every single gripe!!
I just had to write something about my experience there, because I believe the site has a lot of potential, if only they would work on these issues that I wrote about. Every single gripe that I wrote about are wide spread throughout the website – yes every single gripe!!
***Please give access to more than one ATK website with a membership, or at least offer a big discount to second website. I think membership would then go through the roof****
I'd been away from this site for about a year. On the current join, I found some good improvements but also some things that had kept me away since the last time.
Being a pic fiend, I'll focus on that. Since mid-January this year, they've been doing pics in 3 sizes -- 1024, 1600, and 3000 -- with zips for each size. (Funny how the reviews have missed this.)
But they're still reposting older sets in 1024 on weekends. I wonder if they could repost them at least in 1600 instead. They've got some very nice "legacy" material of girls like Breanne Benson, Aneta Smrhova, and the latina Marlena, but these are nothing new to long-term fans of the ATK sites. They're just re-runs. Why not do "encore presentations" instead? ;)
And the thumbs for the newer galleries are bigger (good) than the older ones, so you get this mix of thumb sizes in the gallery listings (bad), the 125px thumbs mishmashed with 200px thumbs. It looks really tacky.
Who cares, you ask? It's why we have building codes, clothing sizes, paper sizes, and layout concepts. What would you think of a product catalogue that mixed different sizes of images on a grid, with big, empty white spaces above all of the smaller ones? Anyway, don't even think of asking me "who cares?" I don't fucking care if you don't. Go write to the International Organization for Standardization and tell them you don't care.
Getting back into the site after a year meant going through the many categories and trying to catch up. They've got 13 softcore categories and 10 hardcore categories. OK, fine, variety is the spice of life and this much has got to be the stuff of five-alarm chili, but why not have a straight chronological list to keep things simple? I mean, I don't want to have to think in terms of "dime pieces" or "masturbation" OR "toys." Just who and when will suffice.
Besides, once you get into a category, the only heading at the top of a list of galleries (this is also called a gallery) is the number of the gallery of galleries. "Gallery 84," for instance, of 16 thumbs to galleries. Of what? Like, where am I? There it is, in the browser's title bar! "nudism 84."
I know, they're trying to keep things organized, and they do, but it doesn't work anyway when you have to struggle to maintain a sense of virtual place while you're trying to enjoy the pictures of naked women.
Still, with the caveats explored above, I'd recommend the site. There's some very nice exclusive material. Quite a lot of it, in fact.

-Discounted price through TBP.
-Huge mega website. The site states over 1400 models and over 950,000 photos.
-Daily updates. The site states 4200 photos added weekly.
-The photos are zipdownloadable.
-No download limits.
-More Black models than any site I have ever seen, even including those specializing in them.
-The number of East Indian models is quite large. There are few on any site on the internet and this site is probably the biggest on the net for these women.
-Many well known models/pornstars. However most of the site appears to be amateurs who may be exclusive here.
-Listing of who the photographers are for each set. I found that I really appreciate R. Williams for example.
-Far too many tattoos and/or piercings.
-Not high quality videos. The most recent are 850x480, 1700 kbps. Way behind the times.
-Photos are nearly all about 600x1000 and some are 1600x1000. Many, many sites have better.
-Too many sets that are washed out color, overexposed, have little contrast, or miss the erotic by having the models' hands strategically placed where I don't want them. Many cut off parts of the model's body and look unnatural and definitely not erotic. For set after set I did not download a single photo.
-The search engine is virtually useless. I have no idea how many Black models there are for example.
I was last a member here about four years ago. At that time I thought the site was very large, the videos mostly boring and of low quality and the task of downloading to be intimidating without some kind of search engine.
Mostly that is still all true. With daily updates the site has become HUGE though.
I appreciate that the site has so many ethnic models. I know of no other site that I can compare this to as far as quantity. My issue is much more with the quality.
The videos are mostly not all that. The softcore are mostly very blabby and the hardcore not terribly hot either. There are some masturbation scenes, blow jobs and some vaginal, but that is it. There is no anal for example.
The photos are mostly not my cup of tea either. There are too many where the fundamentals just are not what I expect from such a well known megasite. Some things that are not done right are photos that have the colors not adjusted properly, or have little contrast, are too dark, etc. Black models in dark photos just don't work. Neither do photos that have one after another of the model's hand covering her vagina. When did that become hot?
The search engine is useless. This was a problem four years ago and still is now. The various ethnicities make searches a matter of luck. I have seen the same model being labelled East Indian, Island, Black, Dime Pieces, Soft Core, Hard Core, Public, meaning outdoors etc. If you search solely by ethnicity you get lists by volume, with models in it that have no logical reason at all. I think they are listed in each volume because of the release date.
Far too many models have tattoos or piercings. I did a completely unscientific study of the Black models that I have so far downloaded. Of these 104, 41 had either tattoos or piercings. Some have both. Some are small and discrete, but far too many have multiple tattoos and most of these models have these tattoos on the abdomen, thighs, breasts, near their breasts, etc. UGH!, Not for me. At least I did not find any at all with fake breasts.
Overall I liked most of the models and most of the photography. What I feel is that the site needs to be rethought as to what goes into it and how to be more user friendly. Right now it seems to be too big to make sense.

- Amount of content of ethnic/exotic women is most likely unmatched. Tons of content.
- Site finally has full photo set zip downloads instead of the sectioned zips it had for years.
- Photos range in technical quality, newest updates are in the 2000 long end range. Also seems to vary based on photographer.
- Navigation has improved, but also has cons. Pros, the model search allows multi-step searches, will explain more in BL.
- Can't really nail down when the video quality improved, looks to be the last 2-3 years, still not HD, but the videos are at least in full scenes, DVD quality now instead of parts. See cons for the other side.
- The site is working to improve and listening to the members.
- Models still are some of the best exotic/ethnic models on the internet, especially on the black models.
- Older videos are still split into small (20 MB) parts. I guess I'm at the point where I won't even download those anymore.
- Navigation has improved a lot, but I still don't like the way it lists models by whatever classification you put in. Will explain in BL.
- Probably not a site for video only fans as the photos are generally better than the videos.
- And with most amateur/early porn career sites, there are some really bad looking models. To each his own there, but it could be a con for some. The good looking ones far outweigh the bad ones though.
I hadn't been to this site in over 2 years. I was hoping when I joined this time there would be some positive changes and there are. The full photo set zips is worth 5 points to me. ATK sites, to me, are very good sites for photo fans because they have nice, crisp and clear photos so the full scene zip is greatly appreciated.
Navigation has been an issue in the past with this site. They have a search now that I think is on the right track. For example you can do these steps.
Select letter for the first letter in the name, I'll use A. Once you do this, you can start refining the search by then choosing age, build, height, race, breast size, pubic hair style and photographer. You don't have to pick a choice in all. If you just want Latinas and don't care about the other choices you can just search for Latinas with the letter A starting their name or you can get downright picky and pick Latinas, 21 years old, hairy, etc...
To show how this works. If I go with the letter A to start my search and click, "build" it gives me these options large, medium, thin, very thin. In comparison if I start the search with models with Z as the first letter in their name, my build choices are only medium and very slim. So it really works in that sense.
And when you pick say "medium" in Z's, it removes the models in Z's that are not medium build. This is really nice search engine, but lets say you're not real patient or don't want to go through all those steps and just want Latinas by using the quick jump feature. It takes you to a page of names with no thumbnails and it's titled like this.
Volume 194, (model names). That's not of much use at all. I'm not even for sure how the volumes are classified or if there is a method they list them in. I'm guessing it has to do with newest released sets, but it makes the quick jump pretty much useless. It's okay for me since I don't mind digging through with the search engine to find the specific type of models I like, but I still think there has to be a better way to list the models than the "Volume 194" way.
Still, as a whole, the navigation has improved a great deal. Some of the quick jump options also seem pointless though like "dime pieces" what qualifies as a dime piece?
The models will surely satisfy most fans of exotic/ethnic models, Latinas, black, Indian, Asian, Islanders, they got it covered on the models part.
Movies, while some are good, most aren't. Many of the good ones are the older ones cut into parts. I don't see me keeping a lot of these movies. The photos on the other hand will nearly all be kept. It's not often you find this many beautiful ethnic models in one place in really nice photo sets.
Overall, the site impressed me much more than I expected it to since I had become so frustrated with the part scene zips for the photos. With that fixed, improvement in the navigation and the continuing generally good looking ethnic models, I'm back to recommending it highly.
I was really happy to see that ATK Exotics now has full set zip files. I wanted to add this comment before re-reviewing it since the last review mentions the photo sets being only downloadable in parts. That always bothered me too. That's fixed now, so thank you ATK.
Besides fixing what I thought was their biggest flaw, they are still bringing in some of the best exotic models in the world. Emy Reyes is one of my favorites and they have 35 photo sets, nearly 5,000 photos there and 6 videos of her. Emy is fairly rare on sites. It's not too surprising to find 1-3 sets of her, so this collection is huge. Also, with the addition of the full photo set zip downloads, it's worth mentioning for the collectors, Aneta Keys has 11 photo sets on here that are very rare. I think all 11 are exclusive and these were early in her career before she got the tattoo on her hip/butt.
I'll re-review in a couple of weeks with more information as it looks like the whole site has been improved.
