Things to Change, Things to Keep

I love this site and what it produces, but they have been doing some things in the last few months that need to be changed:

1. No more guys in photos or videos. They used to be pretty good about this, but now with "full" photoset releases (bloopers and outtakes included) they also have the occasional male assistant in some photos. I understand they work for the site and therefore help make it what it is, but I don't think it would too hard to keep them truly behind the scenes, or at least out of frame.

2. Cut down on the lollipops and baby oil. Lollipops and baby oil have been used by a lot of their models since the '90s, but they seem to really overdo it now. At most, they should only have one scene with a single lollipop or baby oil.

3. "Guest" photosets and videos. These are pretty rare, but I am not sure why they are there, maybe for some promotion agreement. They have only been from 1By-Day, usually with ALS models, but bottom line: it is just not ALSScan.

There are some great things they have been doing lately, and they need to keep it up:

1. New HD vid format. They now release new vids in an additional 1920x1080 wmv format – huge files, but huge videos…very nice.

2. Classic model remasters. These are great, especially since older releases were pretty limited in quantity and quality compared to today.

3. Hard with the soft. They might just be a girls-only site, but their hardcore is just as hot as the soft, and hopefully they won’t stop shooting it.

messmer (137) Ah, now you've hit upon another one of my pet peeves: lollipops being licked by women over eighteen. That's a little girl thing and doesn't belong on a porn site. It looks ludicrous too. That and pony tails and school outfits on women in their twenties.

Thanks for the positive information as well!

Mmmmmm - lollipops being licked by women over eighteen. That and pony tails and school outfits on women in their twenties.

Now you're playing my tune - I love that stuff!!

In straight movies, one of my fave scenes was in Dogma with Salma Hayek as the stripper Muse, in full schoolgirl regalia with pigtails, glasses and a lollipop - looking way over 18 - mmmmm!!!!

Excuse me - I've got to go see Charmane Starr feature dance at my fave strip club - I hope she's wearing a school girl outfit!

I don't really mind lollipops and the things models do with them as long as they do not do it too much, or with every single model. She has a lollipop, alright, now move on.

I also forgot to mention the "meal" scenes, where a model "eats" a meal -- usually breakfast -- and spills something on herself or inserts some utensil handles; it is just too dumb and repetitive for me, and every one of these scenes ends up looking the same.

badandy400 (103) About the guys in the "behind the scenes" scenes, I would have to say it is okay for them to be there. It is behind the scenes after all, and that means pretty much anything goes. It is not like they have their cocks out or anything! They absolutely keep them out of the normal shoots, so they are not breaking any promise here.

Lollipops are nice, but to a point. I agree they should not be used a lot. A few scenes is great, but it should be a small percent.

1080.....sounds great. I might just have to start thinking about updating from them! Funny thing, I was just watching some of there videos right before i seen your comment.

Drooler (218) I don't care to see the guys, but those pics just wind up deleted from my stash anyway. The "guest" galleries don't bother me, but that's because ALS Scan puts them in as "extras" along with their own updates on the same day, which is unlike 1byday, which replaces what could have been one of their own with an ALS Scan thing.

But the lollipop business has definitely gotten old. Each time I see a new set of a girl playing with one, I imagine a parody version of that song from The Wizard of Oz being performed by a chorus of ALS Scan girls:

We represent the lollipop shtick
The lollipop shtick, the lollipop shtick
We represent the lollipop shtick
That shows up too much at ALS Scan


I guess that's been my coping strategy. It's helpful as I just saw that Sarah Peachez has been added to the group.

The remasters have been great. The bonus with Zoe was something I'd been looking forward to for a long time. Wish they'd do that with Monique Alexander!

I just can't swallow some of the fantasies or understand some of the fetishes, even though I have my own. I have the same "credibility" problem with those so-called MILF sites when the "young man" is obviously almost the same age as the "older woman." So, it's not the lollipops and uniforms etc. that turn me off, it's the incongruity of the scene. My requirement for enjoying any scene is that it should be reasonably believable.

PinkPanther (44) REPLY TO #7 - messmer :

To me the schoolgirl thing is especially fun if it's obviously unbelievable - like when Lisa Boyle & Crissy Moran did schoolgirl sets into their 30's - mmmmmm - so hot! I would love to see Lanny Barbie do a schoolgirl set with frilly socks, stiletto stripper heels, french cut panties and a top that makes her boobs pop out like crazy.

I'm not saying that I don't like believable stuff, but porn is about fantasy, so I say bring on the aliens with monster cocks, the hot non-school-age schoolgirls, nympho cuties that want to fuck every single guy they see, the crazy footwear that no normal woman would even try to wear, the inability of a woman to walk across the room without dropping things so she has to bend over and give us a great upskirt view - and all the other unbelievable things that make fun campy outrageous porn.

PinkPanther (44) Someone had e-mailed Alex these commments - he responded to them in his Director's Blog today, so I thought I would post them where the comments originated:

"In response to the first comment: We are not going to change this. In a photoset of 200-400 pictures there may be 5-10 photos where we will step back and show the crew helping out. Whether it is Jimmy holding the video light or Jeremy videotaping the model, or maybe just an overview shot of the entire set, there are so few shots like this that I do not understand how it can be a problem. So my response to that comment is: get over it, man. If that bothers you, "wow!" Just delete those few shots from your set. The value in providing those behind the scenes shots is greater then the possibility of it upsetting a few uptight people. Especially when it is so easy to just delete the pictures that you do not like.

In response to the second comment: I see your point. Not everything we do will appeal to everybody. That is impossible. But we use baby oil in 1 or 2 (out of 7 or 8) sets that we shoot of a model because those are the sets that consistently get voted the highest. Not to mention I constantly receive emails from members saying how much they like that wet, baby oil look. Again, we try to please the masses but we cannot please everybody. As for the lollipops: yes, we have been using them for no more than one (1) set with each model lately. They offer the perfect prop that can give the model something to play with and it can be inserted nicely into the pussy and looks great going in and out. We are always open to new ideas on different things that we can have the models play with and insert, but the lollipops work so well and the models love them. Remember ALS Scan is about finding the hottest models in the world that are willing to insert the craziest things, presented in the highest photo and video quality on the internet, everything from glamour to hard shots. Anybody can find pretty girls and photograph them dancing around and posing, but get them to spread their pussies, or even better, stretch them to the max and insert wild and crazy objects, well THAT is what we do like nobody else can. Keep the ideas coming but they have to be reasonable and not hurt the model in anyway. Is everybody going to like everything we do? NO! But we do try our best and are open to new ideas such as finding something better to insert than lollipops.

My response to the third comment is simple. No worries, it is an extra feature and will never take away from any of our normal updates or offerings. It merely presents more material to our members at no cost that they may not have ever seen."

Yes, I saw Alex's response, too.

Word of warning to those offended by the appearance of male crew members: Don't look at the last pic of Sarah Peachez in the latest blog. Male arm visible! (LOL)

Yeah, I emailed him and told him I wrote it. I sort of figured it would get posted, since he mentioned it last Friday.

Alex's response is what I was expecting, and ALS is proud of what they shoot, as well as how they do it (as they should be). If they weren't, all the girls they continue to select might not still be as shaved and hot as the ones were when they first started in the '90s.

Ahh! Hairy ape arm alert! Maybe's it just an extremely realistic wax figure. (Uh oh, weird prop idea.)

Actually, I really don't care about director's previews. In fact, they can make for some pretty hot photos. I just don't like it when there's a nice, relaxing solo masturbation video, and then some guy starts talking (and, really, who likes all the background talking?) and walks in.

CactusJack2 (0) I agree with everything that you said, but I've always been really mixed about this site.

Let's all get honest for a few minutes about the millions of photo sets and videos they are "remastering" (reselling back to us). Chances are that if you ever looked at any porn during the last decade, you subscribed to ALS and already download all this "old stuff" the first time around. If you think about it, most of all those models who were young and beautiful in the 90's are more than likely fat old housewives with a ton of kids now. Plus, the quality of the remasters really isn't that great, and is not even close in quality to 2009 technology. ALS just doesn't have the amount of material you'd expect someone to have for being in business for over a decade. The remasters to me are just a poor attempt to try and make it look like they have more material than they really do.

As for their new photo sets, the size and quality really can't be beat anywhere on the web, but again, they are so few and far between.

As for the new videos, the quality and download speeds are great but to me they get boring really fast. I mean how many videos of a girl sitting in a chair using a vibrator (that's louder than hell) can you really watch? Especially when most of the girls all look the same. Some of the Caribbean stuff is okay but to me like most of all the other sites they've just fallen into a rut. $100 says I can join a year from now and still see the exact same stuff I'm seeing today.

I swear one of these days I'm going to start my own damn porn site and show everyone how to do it right.
