Though I personally have no moral qualms about recreational drug use. I have little interest in it myself - partially due to the potential physical dangers they present and partially due to the cultural / legal dangers the present - but I don't have any objections to people using them in a moderate fashion (moderate all things to moderation). Excessive use of just about anything will get one into trouble.
I think perhaps only excessive use of rationalism won't get someone into trouble. It might get you labeled as a Sociopath, but you probably wouldn't be locked up, as you wouldn't get caught doing anything illegal if your excessive rationalistic approach is done accurately (this is not to say you wouldn't do anything illegal).
"Turning morality into law merely creates criminals."
That was well said. I'd be willing to sacrifice any future Untouchables type tv series or movies, or Ken Burns documentaries, for that matter, just to let ordinary people use their own discretion regarding dope, booze, and pussy-by-the-hour.
But I guess that's the big difference that lawmakers see between Main St and Wall St. The Main Streeters get regulated plenty, while the Wall Streeters now get away with fraud because, hey, those Main St folks will pony up for their bailout, right?
Pretty much as Claypaws said - compared to other expenses that could be cut back on - or other forms of entertainment - joining a site I like is relatively frugal so it' hasn't affected me that much. That said, other aspects of life have kept me busy so I have been joining less sites than last year...
Well I'm with you there Claypaws when it comes to the 10% part but still based on performance. Just cause it's a niche, doesn't mean they all perform the same. But then most here know my perverted desire to see a good throat job. Since I've said that it takes a certain type of skill to perform that, rather than say an anal or straight sex act, then maybe it would be easier for me to go with the face, or body shape, or other factor. But when you limit the field as to what it is that rocks your socks off then performance is always going to win me over.
I find it even more fun to follow actors' dialogue when their first language isn't English and they're trying to deliver those riveting monologues we're so used to hearing in porn.
Unfortunately, I sometimes get the impression that some girls are not totally into it when they can barely even proposition their onscreen partner for some good ol' buttfuckin' because the language--never mind the guy's penis--is too much to handle.
I was surprised to see those Girls 18 sites back up again. I took a 12 month membership to G18 Spot back in 2010 which was the mothership of all the Girls 18 sites but they all disappeared offline with 6 months of my membership still remaining and never came back. Luckily I'd already downloaded all the sites so I was only missing out on any future updates that may or may not have come along. And yes that watermark was damn awful!! Another site that slapped the watermark right in the middle was the Little Lupe site and other sites in that associated network, although it was just a horizantal watermark and not a great big circular thing like the girls18 one.
The first step in understanding Czech is being able to pick out the individual words. That first time when you can recognise the gaps and not hear just a constant stream of noise is a eureka moment :) Also, like Latin, its a very rule based language, pick up enough words and learn the rules and you are half way there.
And I would not worry about your age. One of my very good friends here is in his 50's and does very well with ladies half his age. You will be surprised how many ladies want to practice their English given half the chance.
If you ever take a trip over to check things out let me know and I will buy you a beer :)
How quickly you can pick up Czech will depend on many things. Firstly Czech is completely different to English so its helpful if you know another Slavic language or even knowing German will help. Secondly it will obviously come easier if you have a natural ability to learn languages. Thirdly, while its hard to become fluent in English, you can get by on relatively few words and still be understood without worrying too much about grammar. In Czech, grammar and vocabulary are tied so close that it does not matter if you know the word, you also need to know how to change it in order to reflect tense, time or the subject in order to be understood.
Personally I am appallingly bad at languages and didn't know German. I tried learning from a book and from friends but didn't pick things up too quickly. What really helped was getting a Czech girlfriend who spoke very little English and also getting out of Prague and living in a smaller town where next to no one spoke any English. When you have no choice but to speak the language its surprising how quickly you learn. I would say that after a year living in a pretty much English free environment I was at a decent level.
Correct, I live in the Czech Republic and have been here for over 6 years. I can count on one hand the number of ex-pats that I know who have actually bothered to learn the language even after living here many years too.
I like to chat up the very attractive Czech girls but don't let on straight away that I understand what they are saying to their friends. They don't think that a foreigner has learnt the language and are quite candid in what they say even though you are standing right next to them. Seeming like a psychic is a slightly underhand but very effective pick up technique...
Agree with Claypaws - show us the content if you want to prove you're different. I try to join only sites which show all updates etc - basically which give you the same browsing ability as members just without the actual downloads.
Thanks for this, I know how to do about.config on Firefox, but hadn't even thought about that. I will give it a try.
The problem seems to just be on .wmv video files. It picks up .rar or .zip files fine and also .mp4 files. When I download a .wmv file, the dialog box has a tick box for "Do this always for this type of file", but it's inactive on the .wmv files so you can't check it. I may try installing an older version of Firefox and see if that changes it. Thanks again.
I think, if you wanted to re-write your responses, it would make a great review of the Diesel network, or one of their main sites.
I honestly believe, because of your greater writing skills and other factors, that your reviews are outstanding. Far beyond anything I have written. Toadsith hasn't written any reviews in almost 4 years, but his reviews, like yours, are some of the best at PU.
I'm glad that you are finding some sites that you like. I thought, after re-reading your reviews, that your tastes were too specialized to finding sites you might think worthwhile:
"As I am not interested in bg, gg or video, it is hard for me to evaluate the quality of that content."
You say you like Metart, and would score it in the mid to high 90s. But you also say: "I tend to find their images beautiful but not very exciting..."
So when you give Metart a 90s score, do you mean that represents your personal satisfaction with the site? Or do you mean, instead, that is your "professional reviewer's" opinion of the site, apart from your own enjoyment?
When we write reviews for PU, we are supposed to score a site based on some objective criteria, apart from our own personal satisfaction. Which I find hard to do.
My tastes are different from yours, but you've talked me into a ATK Galleria membership in the near future.
You write that MyPreciousVirgins "has some good photos but so few that you can find all of them within a week of joining."
I don't think MyPreciousVirgins is a mega site, but it has a large number of models and photosets. So if you could only find a week's worth of content worth keeping, then it seems that it would take years before 18 Only Girls or Young Legal Porn would build up enough photosets that would appeal to you. Because most of the photos they post (and all of the videos) would seem to be outside your interest, even if they improve their photography.
I am looking forward to reading your future reviews.
Browse the samples from that site. If the photosets appeal to you, then you might join Diesel after giving them time to build up content that you might like.
The quality at Diesel is far superior to what you get at Teen Mega World. Teen Mega Word is a video site. They have tons of photosets, but I assume the photos (and the videos) would not appeal to you.
In one review you wrote:
"What I want is for the model to look like she wants to rip my clothes off. Alas, with these photographers, few models look like they are thinking about sex at all, even though there are plenty of open leg poses and some mild finger spreading too. 'You can look but don't touch'. "
At the moment, I can't think of any sites that cater to your preference.
"I don't know why the the photosets at 18 Only Girls are so unsatisfying.
The quality of the photosets is far below what you find at a glamor-style site like Met-art or MPL Studios, in terms of definition, appeal, etc. The style of the photosets is like what is shown at sites like Teen Stars Magazine (an archive site) or My Precious Virgins. Except that what
is shown at Teen Stars Magazine and My Precious Virgins is done much better. The photosets at 18 Only Girls are like a pale imitation of themuch better photosets at the other two sites. And compared to glamor photo sites like Met-art or MPL Studios, the photosets at 18 Only Girls are almost worthless. The photosets are like snapshots from the 1960s or 1970s. Even though they are nude photosets, the 18 Only Girls photosets lack sexiness. My guess is that the lack of sexual appeal is due to the washed-out appearance of the colors in the photos."
There are a lot of things I like about Diesel. I like their videos, with the option of downloading in several definitions. And the newer photosets have multiple choices for definition, as well.
As far as theme: this is a teen site. But there is a wide range of sexual activity shown. Single girl, lesbian with two or more girls, boy-girl, boy with two or more girls. Some use of toys, but not a heavy emphasis of toys. The toys could be in a single girl masturbating, two or more girls, boy-girl, one boy with two or more girls.
The sets don't emphasize any themes, except for being teens.
"Are they doing multiple photo sets per girl or is it more of a one or two sets per girl kind of a site (like Pretty4Ever)?"
The number of sets a girl might have is completely random. A lot of girls have only 1 or 2 appearances. The model Maria has 7 videos and 10 photo sets. Katie has 13 videos and 13 photo sets. The model Mia has 56 videos and 27 photo sets.
Those figures are for 18 Only Girls. If a model appears at this site, she might be found at the sister site, Young Legal Porn, with additional sets.
As far as style, I would say the recent photosets are like Met-art, in that they are glossy photos, with high definition, professionally photographed. The difference is that Met-art, until recently, was nude softcore, but no overt sex. The models did not touch themselves sexually. If there were two female models in a scene, the most overt thing was the two models might kiss on the lips. No boys in the sets ever.
At Diesel, the girls are shown having sex, whether by themselves, with one or more girls, or with a boy and one or more girls.
I am far less technically inclined than you, and I don't apply the same expertise to judging a photo or video.
In your review of ATK Premium, dated 2012-06-04, you write:
"As I am not interested in bg, gg or video, it is hard for me to evaluate the quality of that content."
You're absolutely right, I was always more into pics than vids. There are several reasons for that, which I've mentioned before.
-Pics take less space than vids.
-It's far easier to make an excellent pic than an excellent vid, because there are far fewer factors to control in a pic than a vid.
-Therefor, excellent pics are far more common and easier to find than an excellent vid.
-Also, the time you spend looking at a pic and deciding if good or bad is a fraction of the time needed to do the same for a vid.
-I'm sure there are other considerations, as well, such as the time and money spent looking for sites that you think are worthwhile.
Anyway, I'm simply repeating things you already know.
But it's still worthwhile saying them, I believe.
Personal taste varies widely. What I like can be bland or boring or a waste of time to someone else.
I think Metart is the best site out there, for softcore teen photos. In terms of lovely teen models, quality of the photos, amount of content, and the low price you pay for that content.
Their videos, in contrast, are a waste of time. Boring, in spite of the lovely models.
I can't emphasize enough how much personal taste controls or affects what you like.
I looks at photosets from Femjoy, and I don't like them anywhere near as much Metart photosets. Other PU members have said they prefer the Femjoy approach over Metart, in the photosets. I think Metart uses more photoshopping, and cosmetics, to present the models more attractively. For the same model, who has photosets at Metart and at Femjoy, I will normally enjoy the Metart photosts more. But some PU members have said the Femjoy approach emphasizes the natural beauty of the model.
The Metart videos are boring. Femjoy videos are slighly better, but not by much.
Young Legal Porn and 18 Only Girls are two Diesel network sites with the same site structure, and the content has the same style. The photosets and vids and models could appear at either site. They have two sites, instead of one, for marketing purposes, to make more money.
The two sites have always had models that I thought were attractive. The videos have improved over time, and for years now, have been excellent in terms of definition and other factors.
The photosets had far less value. But over time (years), the photos were improving. And the photosets they are posting now are really nice. So as I said in my review, if they can keep up the quality in the future, these sites will be excellent photo sites in addition to their excellent videos.
Here's what I wrote in an earlier review of 18 Only Girls, dated 2011-01-23:
Thanks for your comments. As far as I can tell, the site continues to release shoots and scenes over a long period of time. I can't be 100% certain since they don't give the date of the shoot. It's also possible that because they have a roster of regular models that it may just appear that they're releasing stuff over an extended period.
I hope they won't go after ex-members as well ... in some other way. (frown) Maybe through a newsletter containing an unphotoshopped sample of Faye Reagan? That would probably do me in! I was feeling fine and quite content until now, so thanks a lot!
And, yes, I did see the Killer Joke .. some time ago ... and as I recall feebly, it had me in stitches! :-)
