Pros: - Amount of content of ethnic/exotic women is most likely unmatched. Tons of content.
- Site finally has full photo set zip downloads instead of the sectioned zips it had for years.
- Photos range in technical quality, newest updates are in the 2000 long end range. Also seems to vary based on photographer.
- Navigation has improved, but also has cons. Pros, the model search allows multi-step searches, will explain more in BL.
- Can't really nail down when the video quality improved, looks to be the last 2-3 years, still not HD, but the videos are at least in full scenes, DVD quality now instead of parts. See cons for the other side.
- The site is working to improve and listening to the members.
- Models still are some of the best exotic/ethnic models on the internet, especially on the black models.
Cons: - Older videos are still split into small (20 MB) parts. I guess I'm at the point where I won't even download those anymore.
- Navigation has improved a lot, but I still don't like the way it lists models by whatever classification you put in. Will explain in BL.
- Probably not a site for video only fans as the photos are generally better than the videos.
- And with most amateur/early porn career sites, there are some really bad looking models. To each his own there, but it could be a con for some. The good looking ones far outweigh the bad ones though.
Bottom Line: I hadn't been to this site in over 2 years. I was hoping when I joined this time there would be some positive changes and there are. The full photo set zips is worth 5 points to me. ATK sites, to me, are very good sites for photo fans because they have nice, crisp and clear photos so the full scene zip is greatly appreciated.

Navigation has been an issue in the past with this site. They have a search now that I think is on the right track. For example you can do these steps.

Select letter for the first letter in the name, I'll use A. Once you do this, you can start refining the search by then choosing age, build, height, race, breast size, pubic hair style and photographer. You don't have to pick a choice in all. If you just want Latinas and don't care about the other choices you can just search for Latinas with the letter A starting their name or you can get downright picky and pick Latinas, 21 years old, hairy, etc...

To show how this works. If I go with the letter A to start my search and click, "build" it gives me these options large, medium, thin, very thin. In comparison if I start the search with models with Z as the first letter in their name, my build choices are only medium and very slim. So it really works in that sense.

And when you pick say "medium" in Z's, it removes the models in Z's that are not medium build. This is really nice search engine, but lets say you're not real patient or don't want to go through all those steps and just want Latinas by using the quick jump feature. It takes you to a page of names with no thumbnails and it's titled like this.

Volume 194, (model names). That's not of much use at all. I'm not even for sure how the volumes are classified or if there is a method they list them in. I'm guessing it has to do with newest released sets, but it makes the quick jump pretty much useless. It's okay for me since I don't mind digging through with the search engine to find the specific type of models I like, but I still think there has to be a better way to list the models than the "Volume 194" way.

Still, as a whole, the navigation has improved a great deal. Some of the quick jump options also seem pointless though like "dime pieces" what qualifies as a dime piece?

The models will surely satisfy most fans of exotic/ethnic models, Latinas, black, Indian, Asian, Islanders, they got it covered on the models part.

Movies, while some are good, most aren't. Many of the good ones are the older ones cut into parts. I don't see me keeping a lot of these movies. The photos on the other hand will nearly all be kept. It's not often you find this many beautiful ethnic models in one place in really nice photo sets.

Overall, the site impressed me much more than I expected it to since I had become so frustrated with the part scene zips for the photos. With that fixed, improvement in the navigation and the continuing generally good looking ethnic models, I'm back to recommending it highly.

PinkPanther (46) According to Urban Dictionary,

Dime Piece - When a girl is bangin', hot, beautiful, "A perfect ten."
Jess is a fucking dime piece, bro.

I looked it up after I started seeing photo sets from ATK Exotics at ATK Petites labeled "Dime Piece" and was thinking - "WTF?"

Of course the curators of ATK Exotics have different tastes than mine, so I rarely concurred with their judgement that the photosets posted as "Dime Piece" photosets matched the definition above.

I recommend that they go to a more descriptive categorization, but I suspect that they're quite happy being the only porn site with a "Dime Piece" category and will keep it as is.

Denner (233) Exotics - pretty special you'd choose this site - or rather any site of ATK to join - or for a review.
That ATK and their sites have certainly not had the best scores/words for some time - and understandably.
Like in your review:
"Movies, while some are good, most aren't."

It seems like the old story about ATK - and to follow up, you say:

"Many of the good ones (movies) are the older ones cut into parts." - BTW same as ever.

Anyway - after reading your review - am I wrong in the presumption, that the main PROS - are the quality of models?

Capn (28) I think you are right that the ATK sites are photo oriented.
For sure they are, & none the worse for it.
The skill sets required for video & still photography are more diverse than might initially strike you. Whilst a lot of sites are trying to do both few do both well.

As it is a photography site though I wish they would get away from the idea that bigger is always better.

Some of the zip sets on the other ATK sites are well in excess of 100Meg. That is a lot of stuff to sort through to find the small bits you like.
I am missing custom zips even more now.

Sorry I ranted a little off the point there!

Cap'n. :00

Funny coincidence, right after saying I wasn't familiar with the dime piece category, I heard a guy say, "She's a dime piece, a fine piece of female specimen". Jess is one of my favorites as well, also Emy Reyes earns the dime piece. I do like the originality of using dime piece, but I found searching through the dime pieces to be a subjective mess.

Hey Denner,

Yeah, back to the old the models are good enough to make up for the lack of technical quality. Now, some of those newer videos, like Emy Reyes, those are I think 640-720 high end res and look pretty good, not HD, but they aren't terrible and they're in full scenes. The ones that frustrated me was Wendy, who is one of my favorites on ATK Exotics and some of her movies are split into parts. It wouldn't be so bad, but she's one of the models feature on the front member page. Still, I was in a photo mood and the full zips made up for it.

Hey Cap'n

I tend to bounce back and forth from focusing more on photos than videos, then the next month will be focused more on videos. I also have mixed feelings about the photo set sizes. I'll see some small sets without any nearly same poses, but think I would like to see a little more. Then I'll see a set with 300 pictures with half of them being nearly identical poses as the other half. A few of the photo sets on ATK Exotics were around the 100 MB size, but most were 15-40 MB. I've downloaded photo sets from one site as big as 1.2 GB.

My really big problem with photo sets is the skip of the tease that you can see in the videos. The perv in me likes those photos where the model's panties are pulled over just slightly enough to sneak a peek, but more and more these days go from standing in thong to laying nude without any of the middle parts included.

Capn (28) REPLY TO #7 - exotics4me :

Well, I would say that the smaller set, where you would like to see more has done its job. ;0)

One of my pet peeves is the bulking out of photosets with 6 shots of each pose.
Take the shots for sure, but take only the best ones, FFS do some editing! :0E

Your last paragraph I agree with too.
Unfortunately, the art of capturing a proper striptease has largely been lost.
For instance, very seldom these days do you see the removal of hose & shoes in a photoset.
It can be one of the most erotic parts of the striptease.
