Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: Billing by Epoch with no regional pricing
Included as one of 4 free bonus sites when you subscribe to 88 Square
Decent amount of content for a solo model site
Mostly exclusive content
Most photo sets at 1280 x 857px
Good mix of solo, g/g and b/g content
Content dated
Updated weekly with 1 new photo set or video
Cons: Some non-exclusive content bearing the name of other sites
Some photo sets as small as 600 x 400px
Videos not downloadable, streaming only
No Zips for picture sets
No way to search or sort the content
Bottom Line: This is the site of Tia Ling who according to her bio here is a 34 year old Korean glamour model/porn star although judging by her natural sounding American accent I would guess she’s not spent much time in Korea, in fact a quick search of the iafd database puts her at 2 years older and born in Cleveland, OH. She’s 5 ft 1 inch tall and sports a pair of fake 34c tits and has a nice fit toned body for her age and a tribal tattoo on her lower back. I’m not quite sure what the deal is if you join her site directly, the join page here shows $5 less than I paid to join 88 Square but I see no mention of bonus sites in her tour area.

There’s a decent amount of content here for a solo model site with currently 174 photo sets and 112 videos dating back to June 2007 and according to the dates it looks like we’re still seeing one new update per week. Only problem is it seems the site does everything it can to try and restrict paying members from actually downloading anything with streaming only videos and no zips for the photos and even the right click has been disabled when you view the photos online using the flash photo viewer of slide show facility. The one piece of good news here is that I found I was able to easily grab the photo sets using Down Them All in Firefox. The photo and video sections are basically categorised into three sections, Solo, Action and Fetish, the action featuring both lesbian and boy girl hardcore, and the fetish section featuring some foot fetish, spanking and bondage stuff.

There’s also a live show section for where you can view previous live cam shows. The last show is showing as 197 days ago with no indication of any more shows forthcoming. Other features include a diary which still looks to be updated each month and a store where you can purchase various Tia souvenirs such as autographed photos. Overall as a standalone site I couldn’t really recommend it with the lack of download options and even as a free bonus site a couple of hours was enough to find anything of interest to me.

The reason I no longer allow Downloads babe is because everyone is stealing them and throwing them up on tube sites and torrents. I would think that would be common knowledge at this point.

Hi Tia,

Thanks for the reply and taking an interest in pornusers, the guys here are always happy to hear feedback from site owners/webmasters.

If you are so proud of the fact your site does not allow downloads why do you not promote the "No Downloads available" in the tour pages, I suspect because you know full well it would discourage genuine potential customers from getting out their credit cards. You are basically telling potential customers they might as well go and download your content from tube and torrent sites because they won't be able to download it by paying for a membership.

I seriously doubt these actions will stop those who are determined to steal your content as i'm sure those pirates have the software and knowledge to easily grab streaming files and convert them. I've never looked into it because i'm not really a video fan, i'm more into the glamour photography side of things and despite your attempts at restricting downloads of photos by having no zip files and disabling the "right click save as" feature i was still able to easily grab the sets that interested me using the firefox browser add on "Down Them All" but rest assured they will only stay on my hard drive for my own use. My attitude is i've paid for it so why would i want to give it to anybody else for free.

But anyway thanks to my review and the new review i noticed was posted at The Best Porn yesterday at least potential customeres now have advance warning of the "No downloads" policy and potential frustration. If you think penalising paying customers is the way to do business then good luck to you. With video downloads and photo zips i would probably have rated the site 10 points higher by the way. Once again thanks for the reply.

Tangub.

I like Tia Ling, but the lack of an ability to download will keep me from ever joining. If I pay my money, I expect to get downloads. You are definitely in the minority of webmasters.

I'm glad t hear that they would only stay on your hard drive, but if you think that's the case in general you are being nieve. I own the site, I see where my content goes and ends up, I protect it as anyone would. Yes people can still grab the photos, which isn't as big of a concern to me, but you can't grab flash videos unless you put an absorbant amount of time into it. The simple fact is that since I have done this I have had less theft, I know this because I track it and the vids that do pop up on tubes are clips that I've approved for webmasters. No members have complained and I've receved good feedback on the quality of the vids even though you can only view on the site. I know this may be difficult to understand but content isn't cheap and isn't easy to produce, not everyone can afford to just produce it only to have it stolen and ripped up on every torrent / tube. I didn't make things this way, just adapting.

As far as the tour goes, no where on it does it say downloadable anything. It was designed before the members area changed but is in no way misleading. if you like quality asian hardcore content, solo nude and fetish you will like my site. The vids are very easy to jump around in as long as you don't have a phone modem,lol, its no different than downloading and replaying.

Finally, you're last comment is out of line. I love my members and anyone will tell you I go out of my way for them because I enjoy it. To imply I'm penalizing members is rediculous. If you disagree on the no downloads, that's fine, I'm sure there's some that do, but I don't think you're being very objective about the situation we face as producers these days. At any rate, I've said my piece :) tia

"but you can't grab flash videos unless you put an absorbant amount of time into it."

I decided to test your theory. I have little to no technical knowledge regarding computers, infact your site was the first time i've ever managed to get Down Them All to work successfully. I did a simple google search of the words "download flash videos" and in no time found a simple piece of free software which basically allows me to save to my hard drive the video that is playing in my browser. After that i searched "convert flv to wmv" and again the first piece of software i downloaded for free enabled me to easily convert the flash file into a wmv file to store on my pc and play with windows media player. So if somebody with little technical knowledge is able to download and convert streaming videos to wmv in no time at all then i would suggest its a minor obstacle to someone truely intent on stealing the content and an inconvenience to paying customers who want to download and keep the content for their own viewing.

I appreciate the problems you and other websites face with theft but i don't really think denying paying customers downloads is the answer so we'll just have to agree to disagree on that. Thanks for the feedback anyway and hope your site continues to prosper:-)

Uuuggghh.... I ll tell you what , why don't you just print a manual on here instructing everyone on how to do exactly what I'm trying to avoid. While you're at it why don't you just point people to illegal download sites for ripping copywritten software to use to pull down flash videos ?

Yes....I'm sure if you look hard enough you'll find a free program that will fix just about any issue you have. However, the fact is that most are not going to go thru all that trouble of finding a script to download and then finding one to convert to wmv. If they go through all that and for all my videos more power to them, but most are not going to.

I can appreciate what you're saying, but it does make a very big difference in theft regardless of what you may be able to pull down with a script or what you may think makes a difference. As I said, the customer can still watch the video just the same as if dowmloaded, my customers don't seem to mind at all.

Well if you're happy and the majority of your customers are happy then who am i to argue. Respect to you for coming on here and defending what you believe in. All i tried to do was review the facts fairly as i see them to help other pornusers make an informed choice as to whether they wish to sign up to a site that is streaming only. When i sign up for any site i do so in the belief that i will actually be able to download the content i'm paying for as i'm sure the majority of people do. Once again thanks for your input.

Just Wanted to post here to let anyone know that downloads are now available. Entire Methodcash members area was actually redone across the board. Actually a pretty cool set up as you can switch from site to site very easily.
