Yep - I'm back on the site and wondering what's going on with the download speeds and the use of download managers. Just tried to download a video using the same manager I've always used and it quickly ended, giving me a 52 k/b file. And the browser speed is horrendous, running from around 75 to 100 kb/s. Nothing like seeing 1 hour, 10 minutes to finish a 300 meg file...
Anyone else been here recently or currently who can relate their experience with downloads?
On the plus side (sort of), I saw a reference to their making changes in the lighting on some videos and I look forward to seeing what that's all about. Just wish it wasn't taking ages to see what that's all about. First file to be finished in 47 minutes...
And today, 10 meg speed. Took seconds to download a 315 meg file. Not sure what was up last night. I've seen a site have some variation in server speed from day to day, but nothing this radical.
Constant 75-150 kb/s speed. Been mostly slow all week, with very few spikes of real speed. I'm getting way better speeds using a flash recorder on YouTube. It's ridiculous spending money for this.
This was a nice attempt at something different that unfortunately didn't really come together. It was good to see some "real" looking models, and also cool to see them doing their thing in more natural settings (though there were way too many soft-focus, dimly-lit shoots in bed). Downloads were also very quick. The biggest downsidea for me were the lack of pictures to go along with the movies and the fact that many of the models appeared over and over. The site still managed to get a decent number of videos up before calling it a day, though, and at $9.95 without any annoying rebills, you might want to check it out.
Read a lot of the other reviews and the pros and cons each reviewer puts up and well, we all have an opinion. My opinion of IFM is very high. Quality is excellent, the staff are friendly and responsive and the site is closely monitored to protect the contributors who are often active on the forums.
It's creative and refreshing. Safe site, I've encountered no problems whatsoever. It's artistic without being pretentious. The production values are very high and they have several other sites related which are also pay sites, not free extra content but they are of the same quality. In short, it's comfortable site in my opinion. I think a member gets more than their money's worth in a membership's time.
Sometimes it pays to read the fine print. Nosing around the site, I saw something that really caught my eye:
"OUR EASY CANCEL GUARANTEE
Choose a rebilling subscription with the confidence that if you forget to cancel, we will refund your rebill charge if you let us know within 7 days, and haven't used your account since the rebill."
I can't say I've ever seen that offer anywhere else. More sites should do this! I'm sure more than one of us has forgotten a subscription and let it roll over when we really didn't mean to. It would have been nice to have this option.
But... I'm laughing because my love/hate relationship still stands with this site. I've often said that my life is a series of contradictions, a lot like my screen name. This site is no exception. I just reread some of the expired reviews and it never ceases to amaze me how good content can be accompanied by an attitude that says you can't have the least bit of criticism about it without being told how wrong you are. Still a good join - just keep your mouth shut! LOL
I've kind of blown a lot of money on porn lately so I won't be splashing out on any new subscriptions for a while, but this site looks very interesting and different.
It's aimed seemingly equally at gay men and straight women and seems to be a "arty", tasteful sort of site, just solos of men masturbating.
It's rare to see this kind of sites. It certainly makes a change from amateur sites or sites which self-consciously try to be "dirty" and tacky.
It might all be a bit soft-focus and softcore for me, but I have added the site to my list of sites to give a try to - not a bad monthly price either.
If anyone joins I'd love to see a review and have recommended it for one on TBP.
first read the "about", if it's OK for you, join wholeheartedly
Just some observations I made there, randomly ordered. I joined about 1 week ago, so I am no expert yet, so you don't have the right yet to stone me to death. Maybe it will sound like douchebaggery but these points are what I felt after joining (at least I am not making them up). First of all, I strongly recommend that you read the "about" section before you join, so you can get the gist of what you should expect. The main points are "realism,", "naturalism" and "ethical" representations of women. This leads to one shortcoming: repetitive action, which was mentioned in some comments before. There are not many variations for a woman to masturbate as natural as possible. The self given statement "a historic achievement in erotica" is startling. The emphasis on aesthetic presentations of female masturbation etc. is really interesting and OK, but that's that. I have never seen such a self glorification on any other site. Joining is like to be getting a member of some special community which despises the watcher of "common" porn. One point which I want to emphasize is that there is a wide margin to judge from whether you are diverging from "ethical" (I love this word) porn. In general, sex is not as clean and sugar-coated as depicted here, there is a broad variation of perversion which is nonethless "ethical" in its own right. Just because you use no scripts doesn't make you better. So, after all, I was not really that disappointed by this site as it sounds. It's OK if you want to live out your voyeristic fantasies for some time. But it's nothing for a long time membership.
I was just watching the awfully short preview on their site and their sparse offerings of micro preview pictures. Can anybody confirm or dismiss my notion that this site is an awfully lot like Abby Winters?
I agree with the positive comments others have made about the concept, models, artistic presentation and skilful editing and presentation of the content.
But, and it's a very big but: having been encouraged to subscribe by seeing Ifm videos on xHamster (where downloads are very simple, and quick, and allow you to jump about the clips immediately within seconds of downloading) I've found the site is absolutely spoiled by tediously slow download speeds, apparently un-openable and incomplete clips and the inability to hop about the clips with a mouse-click.
Although I have a modern laptop and I'm reasonably competent with it I acknowledge I may not have the skills to get the best out of the Ifm server, but if xHamster can provide a slick presentation with nearly every video for free, why can't Ifm do it for a substantial subscription???
And as others have said, the 'formula' looks and pose (NB singular!) become boringly repetitious very quickly.

The solo action here is exactly what I’m interested in : They're done mostly on a bed by models lying on their backs, starting slowly removing clothes piece by piece as gyrations intensify and build up to their masturbation scenes, most of which are done very well and in different degrees of momentum. All acts culminates in orgasms.
Each model’s page opens with her name, length and size of the video. An option to stream or download in either WMV or High performance. Also on the model's page is a list of her other clips, onto which one can simply click to open.
Video quality is quite satisfactry, with some inovations added I haven't seen elsewhere.
A forum exist for those who want to communicate their thoughts .
Updates are done on a daily basis, although too complicated for me to figure out.
A page navigation with over 200 sections listing about six models’ pages is a convincing reminder there's ample videos for the full price
The fact clips are so artfully done, one can almost overlook the shortage of the usual glamor one finds in most models found on other sites of it's kind.
Perhaps its’ a good thing, though, because the "plain Jane" "real-life" type we get here does appear to present a fresh change.
But, I hasten to add there's no shortage of "babes" either, whose natural beauty introduces something Porn marketing could use more of.
Many of the clips were done which included the model's girlfriends, conversations, and girl-stuff which interested me in no fashion.
IFM promotes, as well as present too much space for their other pay sites to suit me.
I left them alone for fear I’d be roped into joining another site.
I visited this site a couple years ago, and, upon this recent revisit, I found little change except for the added models.
As I mentioned earlier, IFM is unique and is giving me mostly what I want: Realism, routines done with elements to please most everybody. They seem to sincerelly have their members' interest in mind.
One thing that stood out for me was the absence of those infernal “toys”. The fact I saw little if any of them this time has a lot to do with heightening my respect for IFM's skills at running this kind of site.
I'm also pleased to see less vaginal "gouging." I suppose this whole hand digging stuff is done for effect. The more I can see of her virgina, especially on angle shots, the more I like it.
I would sumit my vote, however, for more full-body scenes and limited closeups...esp. those which dwell too long on the same spot.
If there was a disappointment to be had, I’d have to say it was the unavailability of any form of discount through our PU The Best Porn.
Although the membership and renewal price is the full $29.95, I'm convinced I'm still getting my money's worth.
I like IFM; And I enthusiastically recommend it: And its very likely I'll join again.
Please note this is an edited revision of my review of I Feel Myself.
Since I did this initial review of IFM, I came to realize I had acted too hastly with some of my judgements, and I think it only fair to IFM to rectify those actions, if indeed they cast any negative connotations that would otherwise effect the decisions of those contemplating joining this site.

- Exclusive content of mostly Amateur girls masturbating until they reach authentic orgasm.
- Content explores the realist orgasms you can find with focus on contractions, writhing, suddle noises, and facial gestures.
- HD movies available in HD mp4 (1280 X 720 with ~5,000 kbps), HI-Q mp4 and Wmv, med-q Wmv and m4v with roughly 400 videos available in HD.
- Updates at least one video daily.
- No DRM.
- Site navigation is quite straight forward.
- Site design is easy on the eyes and sleek enough.
- My IFM section includes total downloaded overall, amount downloaded that day for download limit monitoring, login dates and times, and you can select server for greater speeds.
- Active forum.
- Model index with some good info like age, where the model is from, favorite books, favorite music, favorite cinema, and a few random words they want.
- Most models are attractive but do not expect the majority to be fake and plastic barbie dolls. Most models are women you see on a daily basis at like a grocery store enjoying their bodies. Plus, some are so called 'hipsters' and may not shave and so on.
- There is a focus on showcasing 'genuine orgasms in a tasteful way' which I agree with but some content can be considered too artsy which results in low lighting, static cameras, and non-preferred views.
- The attempt to make models the most comfortable as they can be results in real orgasm but mostly in one position and not a huge amount of camera presence.
- Model index is labeled as 'artists' which the artists are considered the models in the scenes, which can actually be hard to find and may be overlooked.
- Most videos are split up as seperate updates and makes for daily updates but repetitive content.
- 6 GB download limit.
- no pictures or screens but understandable to an extent due to comfort level attempts.
This site dedicated to showcasing authentic female orgasms. The site delivers in this aspect because I rarely saw any of the fake moans and non-movement you see on many sites that are supposably showcasing female masturbation to orgasm. These girls here actually writh and contract while making noises no one would ever expect to come out of a female mouth which is exactly what happens with a real female orgasm if you have witnessed one first hand. You won't get the classic porn 'ohhs' and 'ahhs' here, but full out chest turning red and dolphin noise making orgasms; all caught on video for you.
However, with that said there are some things that detracts from the site. For one, the sites dedication to real orgasm does not mean lighting has to be so dark. A female does not need to be in darkness to achieve full orgasm and many of the studio videos are filmed in extremely low lighting. However, I do understand the camera presence may detract from comfortableness so the camera may stay a bit static for the shoot. This does not bother me as much as the lighting but keep in mind about the static camera which mostly stays overhead looking down on the model, usually full body shots. But, I will admit that many videos will end up going to other angles eventually which is a nice touch and improvement but it is not always present.
The sites models are overall nice but I believe you have to be a fan of amateur models to fully enjoy the content. Personally, many of the models to me were just too average looking and detracted from my overall fantasy. However, there are some gems present in the bunch even for the most jaded. However, I cannot stress this enough if you are thinking about joining.
There is a few different types of content present. You have studio made content, home made content, interviews, lesbian footage, and 'diary' footage. The studio and home made footage are quite self explanatory. However, interviews and diary footage can be a bit different. This footage usually involves none to very little nudity and a lot of talking. The lesbian footage is quite erotic but the model selection reminds me of what real lesbians mostly look like. They are usually quite hipster with shorter hair and less shaving but are actually extremely passionate. An interesting difference in content that may be enjoyed by others.
Overall, the sites focus is well played and you will get what you are looking for, the real female orgasm. However, the site does fall short in regards to the overall delivery. Attempts at changing location turn in to artsy settings and the overall location is just a static, poorly lighted bedroom. But, I can give justification for some of these aspects due to the site trying to make these models the most comfortable to reach full and real orgasm. However, some footage seems to go a bit too far with the lighting, static camera, and setting. All-in-all, you will get a lot of great footage and they are probably the best at authenticity.
Joined up again and I see that they now have a bandwidth counter/warning.
After you reach the limit, you see this:
"DOWNLOAD LIMIT REACHED
You have used more than 6GB of data today and reached the daily limit. Your usage will be reset in x hours x minutes and you will be able to view or download more videos."
I'm not thrilled with the limit, but it's nice to have something to monitor the usage and tell you when you can resume viewing and downloading.
With what I'll call the down slide of AbbyWinters, it seems I'm down to two staples - IFeelMyself and AllOver30.
Since it doesn't make too much sense to me to keep reviewing the same sites over and over, I guess I'll be sticking to comments when I see something noteworthy on those sites.
On May 7th of this year, IFM rolled out some really nice crystal clear mp4 files. Starting with the hi-res files, they've changed the page layout slightly so you no longer have to set your media preference for the file type you want. Each preview picture has all the download options available right below it - 1280 resolution mp4 (If available), 640 resolution mp4 and wmv, and lower res wmv and m4v files. I don't know the specifics for the lower res files as I've never downloaded them.
There is one curiosity with the new files though. I don't know if it's just because the hi-def is relatively new on the site, but some of the files they have tagged as HD have mp4 files that are no higher resolution than the 640 wmv files. And some of the videos still aren't available in HD mp4 yet. It remains to be seen if this is just their running out material they had already shot, or if the truly HD files are going to hit or miss from now on.
I have a love/hate relationship going here. The content's great. Some of the responses their reps have left on here leave something to be desired. Telling someone it's none of your business why they've done something they've done or that the download limit "only bothers people who are sucking the site dry" is just the kind of thing that reminds me that porn is a business, nothing more. So it seems these days - Buy my product, take what you get.
Nope - I can't stay away from this one. But I always try to go back after the content has built up. Since there's a 3 gig download limit, I'm trying to calculate the best time to rejoin, so I'm curious if anyone currently with the site can tell me the average file size of the new HD files. I'm most interested in the wmv files.

-There is a nice variety of ethnicities, ages, and body-types.
-The women/girls have a very authentic quality to them.
-All picture sets (or Folios, as the site calls them) are available as zip files.
-A huge amount of content.
-ISMS recently abandoned its multi-tiered pricing scheme, so now all members get all the content.
-Decent quality videos, downloadable as .mp4s, with no DRM.
-Discounts available if you can locate a banner ad and link to the site through it.
-Some of the more popular Abby Winters models (such as Toni B) have some additional sets here.
-Very fast downloads.
-11 updates per week
The single biggest issue here is that there is no good search feature. Basically, you can search by country and that's about it. Considering the many hundreds of models on the site, we should be able to search by age, race, body type, and more.
The other downside is that the pictures aren't huge, especially by today's standards.
Perhaps it's officially true: with today's fancy cameras *anyone* can take a great picture. Well, anyone can take an in-focus picture with decent lighting, if these girls do indeed shot themselves. I'm skeptical because there is a fairly uniform quality. When real girls shot pictures of themselves in the mirror or whatever, they're usually pretty terrible with red eyes, poor lighting, and such. I'm not convinced the site is authentic.
It IS, however, a great source of unconventional models. There are many races, many body types, and many ages. The vast majority are caucasian girls in their early 20s, but there are some women up to 50. Many of the models are not conventionally beautiful in the super-thin, fake-breasted, air-brushed manner that we're used to. They seem real with a joyful vitality.
Some of the models have more of an artistic sense than others. Some models just shoot their bodies in a straightforward manner, while others get more creative. The premise stays the same, but there is still a surprising amount of variety.
If you enjoy amateurs having a good time naked, this site is for you. It updates 11 times per week and the quality of the updates is consistent and doesn't overload you with a lot of generic junk. The personality of the models really comes through and they seem like real people.
I wish the site had a decent search option, but that hardly matters when you consider the uniqueness of the site and how it does so much right. Highly recommended.

+ Still the most realistic masturbation site out there - no make-up encrusted, siliconed-injected models, just women enjoying themselves
+ Unlike other masturbation sites, the women here don't typically play to the camera
+ The site is moving into Hi-def (see bottom line and my comment at right)
+ Files available in high and low resolution wmv and high and low resolution mov
+ 1000+ episodes up, running an average of 5-10 minute each
+ Daily updates (with one con below)
+ They seem to be getting away from the same old "bird's eye view", dimly lit shoots. More women are doing shoots outdoors and in locations other than a bed
+ The member's forum is as alive as ever, with people commenting on the site and the girls daily
- Update schedule is still light with only one episode added per day
- Found out the hard way that there's a 3 gig a day download limit. Go over and you're locked out for 24 hours
Well... I still don't have a job but I couldn't resist this one. This has always been one of my favorite sites and I just happened to be checking the site to see what's what. I saw exactly what I'd been looking for - IFM is moving to hi-def! So, the credit card took a hit and back in I went.
As of the date of this review there's about a week's worth of 720x576 video up and I have to say it's a most welcome addition. Bitrates have jumped from 900+ to 1600+ so the files look GOOD. Now I'm eagerly awaiting the the higher resolutions. The updates still just come one a day so I think this is still one of those sites you join, download for the month, then leave to join again after the content has built up. Just be careful when you go back and try to catch up that you don't download more than 3 gigs a day or you get locked out for 24 hours.
Definitely tops in it's niche as it is, if they could get more than an episode a day up, I'd say this site would be about as perfect as you can get.
"In November 2008 we began a $100,000 upgrade of our production facilities for conversion to Hi Def, Widescreen video. The first step was the purchase of Sony EX1 XDCAM cameras, which record in full Hi Def at 1920 x 1080 pixels (not HDV 1440 x 1080 as used by most of the industry). We began using the cameras immediately and so all material recorded since November 2008 is ready for encoding into various hi definition formats for release on IFM. We also have some footage recorded since 2007 in HDV which will transfer quite nicely to the new format.
Of course this means we'll soon be upgrading the video playback facilities on the site, making the high def versions of new videos available to those who have the connection speed. We'll still support dialup customers with small versions of the videos, and the current standard sizes will increase as well. Additional file formats will be offered.
For a while, not all videos will be available in hi def, as we run out all the SD footage still in the system. All the existing videos will be unchanged, and won't be deleted from our back catalogue. Subsequent re-releases will be in higher res, if not widescreen."

-All other masturbation oriented sites fade to a pale pink in comparison.
-The Female orgasm, not a phrase usually associated with porn, is on full display.
-A host of fresh faces. Does anyone claim to have seen these gals elsewhere? Other than its non-nude sister site beautifulagony.com
-Most lose themselves to their pleasures, others stare straight into the lens. Some of each group generate yells and groans that are klaxon-loud. I dare say the building has no mice.
-During the post-orgasm, the sensation overload leaves some barely ambulant as good sex is a gentle cathartic.
-While some don't get naked, I enjoy the slow undressing of those that do. Many begin by rubbing thru their garments & this may continue for some time before blouse, bra and panties are removed at leisure.
-Understandably, a vid only site, as moans/groans don't translate well to pics.
-Some updates are merely a previously released scene now shown at a wider crop or via another camera.
-Perhaps two gals old enough to have bought a beta tape. The rest are just past legal age.
-The home page naviagation links are squashed into a small area. I clicked into wrong sections thru out my m'ship.
-Its a one-trick pony site: the desire to film big O's reaches something not far from mania.
-This is one of the tiny number of porn sites whose members aren't 98% male. Don't write that your sexy wife is devoted to Abbeywinters.com or the latest female conquest really grooves to your old downloads of Jeanna Fine fuck-fests. No, I'm guessing this is one of a very few with a sizable m'ship of single females who tracked it down on their own accord. Others would be adultfriendfinder.com and, maybe, hegre-art.com
-If your idea of perfect porn is non-plot fucking conducted at breakneck speed, hup-two-three-four! then you won't incur an erection. If you prefer women being fucked into the floorboards, so hard she ends up with a nosebleed or concussion, this site won't raise your blood pressure.
-A reminder of what gets many women off: fully half don't finger themselves internally, the dildos are small-ish, I don't recall any anal probing. Judging by the twitches and moaning, any desire for cock is a passing velleity compared to the yearning for mons venus stimulation. Gentlemen, take notice.
They should try some different poses. Who wants to watch 99% of the girls in one pose (on their back). They have a few sitting, but the hottest of all was Cle standing up. How about more standing, sitting, etc poses?

One of the few megasites on the internet out there with "true" girl next door types.
Massive collection - over 3,600 folios to date.
Many many many cute girls.
Regular daily updates since 2003.
Includes detailed personal information submitted by the model herself.
3 month membership including "extras" on $45. A real bargain!!!
Non professional photography includes numerous odd angles and soft looking pictures.
There are few web videos
I am surprised there is only one review of this incredible site thus far. It features a massive collection of girl next door types, mainly from Australia, and yes, some featured on the venerable Abby Winter site. Here is how it works: The girls express an interest in submitting a portfolio of themselves and the website sends the girl a camera to photograph themself. The pictures are digital snapshots, of generally high quality. The girls themselves all appears to be amateurs doing this as a form of self expression. The website also features extensive personal information submitted by the model including her reason for posing. I would say most of them look like the kind of girls you would see at a local club.
There are only a handful of websites which feature a huge quantity of genuine girl next door types. Abby Winters is the most famous, but this one has the same quality of girls, and more quantity to boot. The photographic quality and navigation is not up to Abby Winters standards, but I still recommend this site highly. All in all, this site is a tremendous value at $45 for 3 months. You can opt for a $29 membership, but does not include additional sets submitted by the girls. Trust me, you want to spend the extra $16 over 3 months to see the additional sets. It's worth it!!!!!!!!!!

- Extremely high quality content
- Updated often
- Some of the models are very hot; if you have a British Accent fetish, this site will feed it often
- FINALLY, realistic orgasms--not the feigned screaming, shouting and gasping in typical porn
- Deviates from the annoying fish-eye camera lens extreme close-ups; very organic, stable videography for maximum viewing enjoyment
- Some of the videos have outdoor solo shots
- DRM-free WMV files at 900kbit/sec. bitrate; high quality videos that will play on any decent PC.
- Absolutely, positively NO intercourse--even when "Friends" are in the picture (unless you get off watching dudes give their girl a hand job)
- Porn very clearly aimed at the female demographic; the bisexuals/Lesbians aren't the sort you would find in porn aimed at heterosexual men
- Many videos will cheat you out of a good view, lots of models never take off all of their clothes
- The camera angles, while pleasantly stable and pointed at the important stuff - girl's faces, their bits - it can get old. Videos with different angles with girls in different positions is very rare.
- "Mood" lighting overused; the better videos are shot in daylight
Highly erotic content, I've downloaded A NUMBER of videos, so there's lots to enjoy here. I honestly thing there isn't enough realistic "females masturbating" porn out there; the only other site I can think of with material this engaging is AbbyWinters.com and I honestly think ifeelmyself.com is more compelling--especially with their 900k bitrate WMVs. Nevertheless, I was only able to find 2 videos on each page to be keep-worthy. So my recommendation would be to sign up, download what you like, and then sign back up in another 3 or 4 months for the next batch of goodies.

Thought the price was reasonable and lured me in the first time.
I came back a second time about 1 year later and updates are regular (daily actually)
The little window that informs me about upcoming updates.
The difference in scenes...some are outdoors and very "sneaky."
Download speeds are good.
Like other reviews, the close facial view during the orgasm, I would like to see the full view sometimes.
Sometimes the reshoots or re-edited shoots, aren't all the much better than the original. AND sometimes...they are.
Very few women of color...the ones here are WOW!
If you enjoy the looks and sounds of a women during orgasm...this site is great. The price makes it reasonable. The site updates daily, so there is no question on "when?"
The ladies are not porn stars, so there is the uniqueness of the site. Just every day ladies being willing to allow us to see a very intimate and sexy moment.
I will be returning in the future and am confident I will be satisfied.
Yeah... it's gotten a bit repetitious, as one woman after another is seen in the same poses, from the same angles, as dozens of others. Still a few novelties poppping up from time to time, but it just doesn't seem as cutting edge as it did last year.
But the biggest reason for my disappointment in IFM is the site's seeming disregard for their customers. I'd put up a post on their forum about the disappearance of a couple of their videos and it was removed without explanation. I then got absolutely no response to the two emails I sent, asking about the missing videos AND the post being pulled. Seems to me even a plausible lie would've been in order on this one.
