Pros: -Official site of US porn star Nautica Thorn.
-Exotic, petite, all natural, zero tattoos, zero piercings.
-Around 60 photo galleries. 80% solo glamour. Some boy-girl from movies.
-Around 20 videos: recorded webcam shows, movie scenes, BTS from movies.
-Model is certainly involved with the site.
-She may have done webcam shows recently.
-Interaction with the model only through her frequently updated blog.
-Rare dildo anal attempt: 2 minutes video; very bad picture quality.
Cons: -Updates are not dated or highlighted: hard to tell if there are any.
-Zero categorization and organization. Extremely unpleasant to use.
-Hard to tell the exact amount of content.
-HTML pages were really slow and unresponsive at times.
-90% of the pictures are 1000x700 or lower. No ZIP files.
-Large galleries are repetitive: too many similar photos.
-Landscape pictures are often as wide as portrait ones.
-Videos: 50% 320x240; 50% 720x480. Low bitrates: 700kbps average.
-Most videos come from her movies or webcam shows.
Bottom Line: I believe I had never payed much attention to Nautica Thorn until I found a scene of hers I really liked at a DVD site. I decided to join this site after I checked the free blog here and it looked like she was really involved and was ceaselessly pumping into it BTS content from the movies she directs.

This site uses the worst ever color combination of text and background: some of the text is simply unreadable. Pair this fact with a decade old content engine that mixes in a single section all videos and photo sets and forces you to click, click and eventually choose from a drop down list to get to the higher resolution and you get one of the most unpleasant sites around. I believe there were some updates while I was a member but they showed up mixed within the chaos, probably marked with a "new" sign in the same color as the background. I only knew there was one update because she mentioned it at her blog.

The only part that is for sure being updated is the diary/blog. There were a couple updates a week in January but they were mainly long entries about her sentimental and sex life. There seemed to be quite a few members who liked this feature but the problem is she doesn't use a single line break: try reading a diary entry with 60 sentences with no line breaks without being a die-hard fan; I couldn't go past the first couple sentences. The blog is hosted on wordpress and all members must use the same login and password written on the site to access it. Pretty sloppy.

Picture quality in images and videos is poor. Some of the picture galleries can be salvaged even though they are probably simply unedited sessions for the DVDs but videos look more like teasers for the movie. She has the looks, puts up great performances and knows her job but, at such low bitrates, it's just impossible to get into it.

All in all, I am not sure I'd recommend this site even to Nautica Thorn fans: you'll sure appreciate the limited interaction and the few BTS content but you may end up so fed up with the site's cumbersomeness that you'll never want to hear from her again.

ControllingMind (Disabled) Thanks, I will join this site tomorrow without fail ;)

Seriously I am glad of your review, I will be sticking this site on the never to join list. As for her blog/diary, she might have very little site input and it might be written by a site assistant. I never trust that solo site girls write these themselves all the time.

I always tend to go the Occam's Razor way: it's probably the girl writing it. But, believe me, in this case, it doesn't matter: it's just an endless account of sex adventures with all the details.

I mean, whether it's her or an assistant writing it and whether the sex adventures are for real or totally made up doesn't make a difference: what's the point of reading about the detailed sex life of a porn star when you've seen her having sex in HD a dozen times? I feel it's a thousand times more interesting the few times she talks about her work.

jd1961 (95) I've noticed that these porn star sites seemed to be slapped together really quick and then left to rot.

There are exceptions but you are right that most porn star sites are a letdown.

In this case, Nautica Thorn is for sure still involved with the site but updates are so erratic and the site is so unusable that only die-hard fans will appreciate it.

Jenna Haze's site is a good example of one that is not a let-down. Nautica's is not as good. I did enjoy the webcam show I saw - she's pretty hilarious. She was masturbating with a dildo, then when a friend came over, she gave it to her without telling her what she'd been up to and had the friend suck it - then she told one of the guys that works on her movies to come get his dick sucked or she'd fire him.

Thanks for the tip. Pity webcam times on all sites, with no exceptions, are always fatal for European PUs.

I believe Nautica Thorn does cam shows but I doubt they come close and there's no schedule at all. There were some recorded shows: I recall one with Eva Angelina.
