My "Review" (Since I can't make it official)

Free access prevents me from writing an official review, so I'll post it here instead.

While I am a fan of the big-budget, professionally produced porn, I'm a larger fan of variety. I can't watch the same thing over and over again or I'll get bored out of my mind. So every now and then, I need to watch something that doesn't have all that gloss, sheen and shine over it. Something that looks like what 2 people having regular sex actually looks like. And that's what sites like this one provide.

The way that I would describe the site is as well-shot amateur porn. While they do try their best to get the best angles, and occasionally do a little bit of coaching to get the people into the best positions, for the most part they let the people in front of the camera do what they want. Also, while they do hide some of their mistakes in editing, they also leave some in, kind of in an attempt to show how "real" the whole thing is. They have 2 men that they use for a lot of scenes, but they've also integrated a good amount of couples into their scenes, and recently there have been more couples updates than the ones with their own male talent. The women are of various races, ages, and body types. While more than likely they won't all fit your type, there's enough variety that most people would find some girls that they do like.

While the site looks like it has been around for a while, there isn't a huge deal of content there. I counted about 75 exclusive videos on the site, with an additional 12-15 BTS scenes, and some pop-shot compilations. Updates come about once a week over the past year or so. Each video is only posted in one format (wmv) and one resolution (currently 640x480), and no streaming. I think it would be a nice move if they started offering mp4 downloads in addition to the wmv, and streaming would also be very nice as an option (as long as it isn't the only one). There's also very little in the way of navigation. The video page is presented in what I could probably best describe a "blog-style" format. There's a description for each scene, followed by the download link. All the scenes are listed on one page. And there's basically no way to browse through the scenes except for scrolling down the page. While I think that a model list is a little unnecessary since there's only one of these women who have gone on to become a "professional", what might work is to allow people to jump/browse by date (Sept 2009, May 2010 for example). There is also a comment board where people can leave messages to the webmaster, and it looks like she checks it and responds on a regular basis (almost everyday, actually).

While the site isn't a big as many other ones out there, what it does, I think it does well, and it definitely has room to grow. If they improve viewing options and navigation, and continue to add quality content, I would place this site at the top of my list of places to find truly amateur content. As it stands, it's not that from the top anyway.

TheSquirrel (53) Good, informative comment/review. It looks like it does what it says on the packet, and is one of those that is at least a little different from the mass produced jaded pros packaged sites.

Thank you hodayathink,

I am glad to hear you enjoyed the site. I appreciate your assessment of where it needs improvement as well. It started one year ago 9/4/09 with only 20 BJ videos so it has been a long climb up. You mentioned all the issues we are in the process of improving upon now. This week the site is being moved to new servers hosted by a very professional company which is knowledgeable and experienced working with very large adult sites. This should vastly increase our download speed.

Next week a new top of the line content management system (CMS) is due to be installed on the new servers which will accommodate multi-format and multi-bandwidth downloads and streaming as well as search capabilities. This should make the site far more manageable, freeing up time so I can do more of what I love doing, video shoots. It will also improve navigation for users making the viewing experience more enjoyable.

My goal is, and always has been to keep the site truly amateur while improving it as much as possible without becoming too PRO. This is not an easy thing to do and I often struggle with the decisions I make. One of my biggest decisions now is whether to offer HD. Does it or doesn't it take away from the amateur feel of the video? This will be my next big move if I should decide to do it.

Thank you for visiting our site,
Yariana

REPLY TO #6 - uscue :

Just to clarify, TBP reviewed the site about 6 months ago when there were only 20 or so BJ scenes and just a few full sex scenes. The price at that time was $14.95. It has since grown considerably and the site could no longer sustain itself due to the large increase in bandwidth. The price of membership just recently increased to $19.95 for this reason.

Thanks for the quick reply. Yeah I watched a few of the previews just now and the site look really good. I will probably go ahead and try joining today or tomorrow to see what it's all about. It was either this or the Glass Mannequin sites, but I think I'll like this one better.

Another reason why previews help sites as opposed to the limited previews I see on some other sites. I probably wouldn't have joined before watching the previews.
