||+++ Some girls are really into anal sex

||-- locations are dull
- cameraguy work and lighting is just ok (not stellar)
- HD quality is not the best for 2011
- 29.99 is too high for a single site
||When I'm looking at EverythingButt, I simply cannot resist comparing to another site within the same niche, BigWetButts by Brazzers. As I was member of Brazzers more than a while ago, it won't be 100% fair comparison, but I hope it will still be relevant enough.
In my review of Brazzers network, I've said that they would get mark of 90 if they wouldn't cheat their customers. Kink.com and EverythingButt do not cheat, so they should get 90 if they're on par with BigWetButts.
First thing which becomes obvious when looking at EverythingButt videos, is that they're reusing the same SF Armory which is present in all Kink.com shoots. While I think SF armory is perfectly adequate to the BDSM niche (and most of Kink.com are indeed BDSM), I would like more bright setting at least for some of anal site scenes. Also cameraguy work on BigWetButts is stellar, but on EverythingButt it is just ok. Overall, BigWetButts IMHO wins here hands down.
Next thing is models. It is very difficult to find models who like anal, and both EverythingButt and BigWetButts have done tremendous job here. On EverythingButt my personal favorite is Amber Rayne, she likes anal a lot, and on BigWetButts there are several models who are obviously into anal (trio Flower-Harmony-Phoenix is my all-time favorite). I would say EverythingButt and BigWetButts have a tie in this department.
Action: I admit it is on wilder side with EverythingButt (analingus, A2M and so on are rampant), but for me it is a bit too much (on BigWetButts all of it is also present, but a bit milder which suits me personally a bit better). Still, trying to put aside my personal preferences, I'd say it is another tie.
Now to video quality. If not paying for HD on BigWetButts, a year ago you'd get pretty low 768x432 resolution, but it came in 2.3Mbit/s and was absolutely crisp at this resolution. On EverythingButt, it is formally HD (1280x720), but the best I could get for WMV from them, was 1.6Mbit/s which I don't think is enough for HD (it was not as crisp as it should). Overall, I'd also declare it a tie there (though for 2011 I'd expect higher quality, especially from market leader like Kink.com).
Next point to compare. Kink.com traditionally has pricing structure where you need to pay separately for each site (there are discounts, but they're just discounts), and price of 29.99 is IMHO way too high for a single site (Brazzers provide access to the whole network cheaper).
Bottom line: EverythingButt is definitely a well-worthy site for hardcore lovers of anal sex. Still, if not for Brazzers cheating their members, I'd like BigWetButts somewhat better. Hence, I've ranked EverythingButt at high (but not enormously high) 85.
