Pros: +Some nice exclusive content of “natural” girls with no fake breasts
+Exclusive photos available in sizes up to 3000 pixels
+Easy to navigate; uses the same web package as now does Aziani and FuckedHard18
+Variety of models greater than shown in visitor’s pages (but see cons)
+Videos are only of the exclusive models (usually 2 per model) and are usually not shot at the same time as the photoshoots
+Videos available in DivX 1280x720 or 640x360, wmv 640x 360, iPod 480x272, or Flash video
+Total of 182 photosets to date
Cons: -Hasn’t updated with anything since May 2nd, '09
-Usually only 3 photosets of each exclusive model (one plain background; others in various settings)
-Some exclusive photosets are too dark
-Zips of exclusive content only of 3000 pixel photos
-Some of the exclusive models aren’t that appealing (chunky bods or overboard tattooing)
-Non-exclusive content is only 1024 pixels, even though there are always “stated links” for 1600 or 3000 pixel photos
-Thumbs don’t show all of pics; cut off sides of “landscape” shots are particularly annoying
-Not all zip file links work for non-exclusive content (the “Jeans” one of Renee Perez, for instance)
-Only 36 videos; 4 are “BTS”
-Videos are only 2-6 minutes long, mostly in the 3-4 minute range. This might be long enough for some. ;)
-Downloads are kind of slow, reaching approx. 360 kbps
-Last “news” post was over 2 months ago – not a good sign
Bottom Line: I’ve seen sites that started with a lot of non-exclusive content to boost the overall amount early in the game and gradually grew into truly exclusive sites. MPL Studios is one. But Ambya has done it in reverse! Browsing the model index by date, you’ll find most of the exclusive ones together from the time the site started. Then the non-exclusive, 1024 pixel sets start appearing rather suddenly, but regularly, usually with 2-3 updates per day until March 20th this year, when the frequency drops to 1 per day to May 2nd, after which purely archival zombieism sets in.

There are 89 models in total, but only 20 of them are exclusive content models. The rest are in the non-exclusive stuff, which includes Ember, Jade Hsu and Nikki Nova (many years old), but also some “less-old” stuff of girls like Cassie Young and Renee Perez.

Of the exclusive models, my favorites are Cali Logan, Stephanie Sage, Erin Nicole, and Alyssa Reese. Funny what they all have in common: Sexy eyes, slender figures, and nice butts. And usually small tits.

But others don’t do that much for me. Anyone remember Maliya Madison? I even have stuff of her from Shae Marks’ former site. Vintage 2003. Here at Ambya, she appears as “Heather.” She’s still got a cute face.

And “Tangent,” while having a nice physique, has this enormous tattoo all over one side of her body and much of her back.

It’s practically a cliche now, but you can’t always tell a site by its “cover” pages. I mean, just look at the bulleted points on the tour page ("Exclusive Content ... Diverse Model Portfolio," etc.). None of what they say is untrue, yet it is very different from what one would expect. Very.

And it’s a shame. Ambya looked like it had a good concept going: All-natural girls (‘except the ones with tattoos) in exclusive, toy-free softcore at 3000 pixels. But that sizzle turned to fizzle and now the fire’s apparently gone out.

Maybe there just aren’t enough all-natural girls around?

lk2fireone (194) I think you brought up a really interesting point. How long should a video last?

Maybe you could make that a poll question.

Personally, unless a video is really fantastic, I don't see the point of a video that goes beyond 10 minutes. Since most videos are basically rutting, with little attention to elegant style or storyline or other factors that might increase the appeal, I think these rutting scenes get tired/boring very quickly. For me they have little appeal. But even if the models are attractive, which would be a real plus, I don't think it's more of a turn-on for a single sex scene to last beyond 10 minutes.

I am talking about the sex scene itself. It would be great to have some prolog/story that leads up to the sex scene itself, if the story is not really stupid, the conversation is not really stupid, or demeaning or trash.

Erotic is something that most sex videos ignore or have forgotten about.

It would be nice to find a site that specializes in erotic videos, where the body is mainly natural, no tattoos, lovely young models (maybe a few over-30 for Drooler and his buddies), and the videos are like mini-movies or actual movies, with a sensible plot, good dialog, good lighting, good color, soundtrack, etc. etc.

Dreaming the impossible dream. :)

It was a poll question. See the poll ...
In your opinion, what is the "ideal" Full Scene video clip length?

Fantastic memory, Khan. To remember a poll question from over a year ago.

Thanks for the tip.

The best reply to the poll, in my opinion, was: Pornjackker: "It depends on what happens in the scene. Most of the time if it's just pure sex 5-10 mins is fine.
If there's a good flirtatious back story then 15-20 is good. Anything beyond 20 is really a waste of time."

His reply was entirely sensible, and fits with my thinking exactly. He also framed his reply better than I did when I tried to express the same thing.

Drooler (218) REPLY TO #1 - lk2fireone :

It is a good question. I watched one of Stephanie Sage from Ambya that was 4 and half minutes long and found myself skipping through, not because of boredom but just interest in what all would be shown and how. ;)

Thought it was a nice, complete show.

Maybe those 2-3 minute softcore vids would suffice, but it's a tough call. The numbers don't "look" long enough, so that's why I put it in the con's, trying to tap into the "ether" of the Great Porn Users' Spirit of Consensus.

As for the over-30 women, I actually prefer the ones that are now young enough to be my daughters. HEH-heh-heh-heh ...
