||+Site search which works well
+Homepage has every list (keyword "LIST") you could want - top rated models, latest videos, latest pic sets, latest updates, etc.
+Site celebrates female masturbation, so you get videos with some odd, but entertaining female masturbation techniques (check out a scene from Mercedes where she uses the edge of a table to get off)
+Two formats (WMV,QT), and two qualities (low,high) of videos offered on most videos (some just offer WMV)
+Images are high quality
+100% exclusive content with girls you have never seen before. A few girls here and there have done professional porn vids, but for the most part they are newbs.
+Theres a headshot for every girl in the directory
+Yanks provides scans of introductory survey that each girl filled out when they applied for Yanks (using their porn name of course). So you get every bit of information you want to know about a girl - measurements, sex habits, likes, dislikes, etc. It is fun to know this stuff about a girl.
||-Watermarked videos and images
-Disappointing library size
-Girl directory not alphabetized
-Can't download imagesets as ZIP files
-No free bonus material. There are two bonus pages totaling 5 types of bonus content: links to buy porn hardware (like dildos and fleshlights), links to "trusted" partners (nothing more than links), friends links (sites which have offered a bit of their junkier content for free to Yanks), streams (junky streams like Lightspeed, which themselves are limited), and actual bonus sites on the Yanks network (except they are not automatically included with Yanks membership). Like I said, no bonus material.
-Videos with multiple girls are featured on their own page. E.g. Mercedes has a video with a girl named Jordan. Instead of this update appearing on Mercedes' or Jordan's page it appears on a separate page for "Jordan and Mercedes"
-Homepage only shows latest 5 updates, no page to show more, and videos are not tagged with dates after being pushed off the homepage
||Overall the site is very underwhelming and feels like it is lacking, mind you the layout has not been updated for years. The site is still updated, at what exact rate I do not know (since I can only see the last 6 updates), though it seems like it averages out to a little LESS THAN one update per day. The material is high quality (good resolution video, good resolution images) and enjoyable to watch, just I wish there was more of it. Each girl has only one or two videos, maybe 2 or 3 image sets and that is it. What is a little more disappointing is that the videos generally have no associated imagesets and the imagesets generally don't have associated videos - which sucks because there are some image galleries that get my blood rushing, that I would love to see in full motion.
Personally, I would have liked if this review applied to the other sites in the Yanks network (Billies Bitches, Girls and Fingers, etc.) but it can't because each site requires separate membership (I mean I guess you could sign up the same username and password on each site, but you still have to pay extra each time).
$10/mo is rather cheap, but VideoBox is also $10/mo and you get 5 full DVD's per day, which works out to 35 DVD's per 7 days, or an average of like 150 individual scenes per 7 days. Compare this with Yanks.com which adds something like six or seven scenes per 7 days - underwhelming to say the least.
Am I going to say to avoid this site? No, because there is some really unique stuff on here, like the masturbation techniques of some of the girls (e.g. Mercedes), and there are also a content from a few girls that I like whose content is hard to find (e.g. Adara Star under the alias Adera). But, the 70 rating is warranted; there is a lot this site can do to improve, and the first thing would be to update their outdated page layout - get with the Web 2.0 revolution, please!
