Pros: -DRM: no.
-Download limits: no.
-Most models will be present at more than one TonyBucks network, but most of the models are not found at a large number of other sites. So the faces you see here are mainly fresh faces, at least until you have gone through the TonyBucks network.
-There are some models that are really cute or outstanding, that you will probably have seen at one or more other major sites.
-Multiple download formats:
--High, medium or low resolution WMV.
--MPG.
--QuickTime.
-Easy login.
-No site timeout.
Cons: -The biggest con is that the site is not updating. The most recent update I saw was from January 2009.
-So this is an archive site. Some of the content is ok, but once you have downloaded the material you want, there is little reason to come back again. A shame, because they chose some nice models at this site, and you want to find more material on them, and that won't happen at this site.
-No zip file for photosets.
-1 size only for photos.
-No streaming option for videos.
-Watermark, bottom right corner of photos. Not large, but could be smaller, less noticeable.
-Download problems? I was downloading 2 videos from the site using DownThemAll download manager. Both videos stopped downloading, giving me a
"timeout" error message. Each download re-started from the beginning of the download. I do not know why each download stopped, or why each download could not resume from the point that it stopped.
Bottom Line: This is part of the TonyBucks network. Joining any site in the network can give you access to 10 or less sites in the network, depending on when you
join and which site you join through. There are currently 11 sites in the TonyBucks network.
At this site the photosets outnumber the videos by a large margin. At most TonyBucks sites the photosets and videos are close in number, and several sites have each video paired with a photoset. Not here.
The size of a single photo (up to 250 KB) indicates high definition. But you don't get the "professional quality" you will find at top photo sites like Met Art or MPL Studios. The photos are "ok", but not high quality regarding colors, clarity, etc. There are some attractive Eastern European models, but they could look much better with professional photography.
The content is softcore teen nudity, with some masturbation. Even though the site was
launched in late 2008 and stopped updating a few months later, the photo quality seems more like something from the 1990s: some very pretty models, but the quality is not high. If you know Teen Stars Magazine, the photography style is very similar: more skin is shown at SpringTimeBeauties, there is some mild solo masturbation at SpringTimeBeauties(no masturbation that I can remember at Teen Stars
Magazine), but the photography is better at Teen Stars Magazine: the colors are better, the models look better.
With the large file size for the "high quality" videos, you expect high quality playback, but you don't get it. The first video I saw had a tiny jittery effect that creates eyestrain. The second video I watched did not have the jittery effect, but the video picture is not crisp. 572 MB for a 15 minute clip, so the video picture should be extremely sharp, but it's not: it's like you're watching the scene through a very faint fog.
You do get the impression you are watching amateur teen models who are just starting their porn modelling career, these girls are young and fresh. I just wish they were presented better (better photography).
The soundtrack of the videos I saw was music from a radio (music mixed with talking from an announcer). The volume level of the music is low, which is better than loud, but it would be better to have no background music at all. The music
is a minor distraction that does not really fit the video.
If you like softcore striptease videos, this would be a nice site, except:
1. The site is not updating.
2. The videos are just ok.
3. The photography is not excellent.
By itself, I don't think the site is worth joining. The videos I saw had some attractive models, but the video quality is just ok in spite of the large file size.
If you like this style of photography, I would choose a site like Teen Stars Magazine, which is a site that doesn't update, but the photos are
nicer, and they have zip files. Or choose the My Precious Virgins site, which has a similar photo style, and is supposed to be currently updating.

Drooler (220) Yeah, this site stopped updating while I was in the middle of a membership, in Jan 2009 (as you noted).

Be careful with My Precious Virgins. I was last a member there a few short months ago and it had stopped updating, too. Besides that, they'd left unfixed a bunch of webmastering mistakes, such as not thumbs but full images in some of the gallery preview pages, making them slow or impossible to load and very dicey for viewing (scroll right, scroll right, scroll right ...).

Just because there's a script (or a real person) behind that latest update date at MPV doesn't mean they're updating. I fell for that. Let me be the last to.

Thanks for the update on My Precious Virgins. I'm not perfect, but I try to be generally factual in my reviews. So I wrote in the review: "Or choose the My Precious Virgins site, which has a similar photo style, and is supposed to be currently updating."

I did not know if they were currently updating, which for many smaller sites can be an on-or-off proposition, which is why I wrote the "supposed to be currently updating."

But since you were a recent member, you have the facts to back you up.

Also, a large part of my reviews are personal opinions. So even though I gave the SpringTime Beauties site a low score, someone else might find the site to be a much better value or experience.

Sometimes, when you read movie reviews by "major" film critics, you wonder if they are writing about the same movie, when they can score the same movie so differently, both high and low.

Drooler (220) REPLY TO #2 - lk2fireone :

I just thought I should let you know because I had thought MPV was updating, too, and they weren't, and I got burned. "Supposedly," indeed. I figure if one of us pays for the risk, and in this case I took it, and things turn out to be less satisfying than they were "supposed" to be, tell!

That little updater part of the My Precious Virgins homepage, I found, cannot be trusted. BTW, it currently says: "Updated Daily. Current Update: November 7, 2010."

Yeah sure. I got burned the last time. (What did I just say? "The LAST TIME!")

BTW it had never entered my mind to be critical of your review. I was just pitching in my words of caution, based on experience.
