Pros: * A special site dedicated to Shay Laren
* Access to more model specific sites
* They tell you that Shay Laren herself manages the website though I doubt it.
* Newer videos are available in HD. Only in WMV HD
* Galleries are archived in zip-files and are High Res.
* Date is mentioned with every update.
* No download limit
* They show some other models on the website like Aria Giovanni. Sometimes together with Shay in a video.
* A collection of Shay Laren-videos available on many different websites. So no need for more memberships if she's the one for you
Cons: * Random updates. Haven't seen an update for 2 months now.
* Older videos aren't really worth it. The quality is well below par
* Navigation could use a make over. About 8-9 pages of videos and you have to open every page for every video for a good description.
* Could benefit from better screenshots in the video pages.
* Cute video at the homepage but get annoying when you visit often as it plays automatically. With sound!
* Beginning to offer too much content featuring other girls and not Shay herself.
* It just looks empty, old and outdated. Really not very appealing once inside.
* If you have a membership to any site that offers Shay Laren in HD, chances are you have all the videos.
* Membership is also available through other websites with more bonus sites. Very confusing.
* The diary and journals just don't cut it and don't offer anything special. Could very well be written by some webmaster.
* Most bonus sites are just as poorly updated as ShayLaren.com
Bottom Line: ShayLaren.com is website featuring mainly the beautiful Shay Laren. The website launched November, 2006.

When you visit ShayLaren.com you are greeted by a welcome video of Shay. The video is cute but can get annoying after a while if you visit the site often through the homepage. This is mainly because the video starts playing automatically and has sound.
If you don't want anyone hearing you visit that website, turn down the volume on your speakers or click really fast on the almost invisible and minuscule pause button.

Once you get past that, you may enter the members page. You first get sent to a mainly black screen with is hard on the eyes at first. After you get settled, you are able to click on the navigation bar. It's nothing fancy but it does the job.

When you click on the videos-link you get sent to the first page of about 9 at the moment, on which you can find the latest uploaded videos. Every page holds about 8 videos. You get a brief description of every video on the page. And when I say brief, I mean brief. A video of Shay in bed is described as 'Shay in bed' for example. Along with a very small screenshot. When you decide and click on a video, you are sent to a page with exactly the same description and the upload date which is a plus.
Here, you may decide in which format you wish to download your desired video. This is only for the newer videos, which are also offered in WMV HD. The older videos are a hassle to download and come in lots of small parts.
They are currently offering about 75 videos. The first video dates back to November 21st, 2006.

When you are done with the videos, one can move on to the galleries. This, again, is nothing too fancy. Every gallery is presented as a thumbnail of the first picture. With about 20 or 25 thumbnails on a page, there is a vast selection of galleries. Each thumbnail comes with a zip-file download-link beneath it.
The journal and diaries are nothing special and may well have been written by some webmaster.

When you are done with the videos and galleries, there are a couple of bonus sites. It really depends which website you subscribed to.
If you subscribe through ShayLaren.com, you get 6 more sites. TerriSummers.com apparently offers 10 extra sites which includes ShayLaren. JesseCapelli.com offers 5. The network isn't really a network but more or less a maze of memberships connected to some and not others.

The updates do not make it worth your while. They are very random and you never know who or what you're going to get. They update a lot with Aria Giovanni these days whilst the site is still called ShayLaren.com. They sometimes update 2 or 3 times a month and the next update might be 2 months away for all you know.

All in all, the website is fun when you really just want Shay and the possible Aria Giovanni video. But if you already have a subscription to a site which offers Shay videos, chances are you already have all or most of the content and the older content just isn't worth it

Monahan (42) I'm really happy seeing this review. I keep thinking about joining but $30 is a high price to take a chance on this being just another lousy one girl site.

And I like Aria and Jessie a bunch so I may be able to cobble up some new stuff there as well.

Looks like I'll be spending some time checking the various connections out there before signing up. [I have a lot of Shay's stuff, but if this site has assembled most of what's available elsewhere, chances are good there will be new stuff for my collection.)

A one month sign-up to one of the "partner sites" may be in my future.

I'm happy my review is useful to you. That makes it worth it, for me at least.

I think you'll be satisfied with a one month sign-up. I mainly did it for ClubCapriAnderson.com. Which I'll probably be reviewing tomorrow.
But accidentally came across TerriSummers.com which offered 10 bonus sites including all of these.

Signing up was pretty confusing to me at first. But just make sure you get the most bang out of your buck.

If you have any questions, let me know!

Good luck!

atrapat (112) Good review. Regarding the connection maze, I think you get access to all sites from this company with your membership. I was a member of a site from this company a couple years ago and my password worked at all sites.

Thank you.

Did your password work for all 10 websites? Even the ones not stated on her website?

I was also a member about a year ago through this website and did not get all of the websites I got this time, when I subscribed through another website.

But then again, ClubCapriAnderson.com wasn't up yet. And maybe some others weren't as well. I might subscribe again in half a year or so to another website and to see which bonus sites you get then.

Anyway, glad you liked my review.

I didn't get a membership directly for Shay Laren but to another site from this company, which is no longer listed here at PU. That site only listed 5-6 bonus sites at its home page but my password worked at all but one of the 15+ sites that company had listed here at PU at that time: all the solo model sites did work; also Glamour Models Gone Bad and Amateurs Gone Bad. If I don't recall badly, only one of the sites did not work and it was not a solo model site; Digi Dolls or Bitchin Movies most likely.

I don't know if it's sloppiness on their side or an unadvertised feature but I doubt they have a membership maze set up. They for sure didn't have it a couple years ago and they were already listing just a few bonus sites at the members' home pages.

Interesting. Glamour Models Gon bad is $25 per month and Shay Laren is $30 per month. So it looks like I can save $5 just by selecting the Glamour Models Gone Bad site.

Sloppy management, but if they have good stuff on their sites, then I'm in.

Hmm... odd.
Just going by my own experiences really. And my password didn't work on all sites.

At the top of the screen you get a drop-down menu with all of the bonus sites in it.And not every site is mentioned.

As I said, the last time I subscribed there were less sites so it's hard to compare both experiences.
But according to TBP as well, one site gets you 5 bonus sites while the other one gives you 10.

I doubt it's a maze as well, at least not deliberately set up. It's probably just sloppiness. They might just make deals with each other individually. So one website can offer specific bonus sites they like personally.
Although I doubt that as well. Sounds like too much of a hassle.

But you're right. It's probably not really a maze but just sloppiness.
