ATK Premium (1)
Was a member approx. 2 months prior to this review.
||- A lot of content up, both pics and vids.
- Very attractive models for the most part.
- Good navigation, categorization (solo/artistic/etc..), search function, ala ATK style.
||- ATK has always had a somewhat confusing way of organizing the vid section, and this site is no exception.
- Emphasis is decidedly on the glamourous/artsy side of things which makes the 'A' in ATK kind of non-applicable here.
- Pic size decent (avg 1000 X 1500) but still not where it should be for a "Premium" site.
- Vids look decent (avg 640 X 480, 1200-2000+ kbps) but not as good as they should for a "Premium" site.
||I've been to all of ATK's sites and Premium most recently. If I had to live with only one of their sites to the exclusion of all the others, Premium would be my last choice. Why is this?
Well, what we like and don't like is a subjective thing. Two things that were always appealing about ATK were Amateurs and/or Teens, which is what the 'A' and the 'T' in 'ATK' abbreviate. At Premium, the models are hardly amateurs, and despite whatever their average age might be, there is an atmosphere of maturity present which steers quite clear of "teeny-ness" in most of its usual guises. Not that this is a problem necessarily, but it does seem like a bit of a turning away from the original mission of this company.
The impression I get is that this is ATK's contribution to the genre of classy, artsy nudes made popular by sites like Met Art and Hegre's. The women are beautiful and the settings equally so. For me this makes for a certain sterility as far as the libido is concerned, which impacts ninety-five percent of why I purchase subscriptions to these kinds of websites.
While I like the more intimate aspect of some of the videos, I found a few which seemed to show nothing but a model getting her make-up applied or her hair done. I suppose some might like this (and I wouldn't mind at all for a minute or so), but it was too tedious for me. On a positive note, some of the lesbian scenes were among the best I've seen.
Recommended, but with reservations.
