||Sinnistar is a small but growing site that caters to a fairly narrow niche – rough anal, ATMs and throat fucking. I’m well aware that interest in this niche isn’t shared by everyone or even the majority of PU members.
Currently the site has just under 200 scenes. I estimate that between 60 and 70 percent of the scenes are exclusive and produced by the site with the remaining scenes being licenced material from mainstream porn that features scenes that fit the site’s theme.
The site is very simple in that there are nine pages of scenes with there being just a single column of scenes per page. The scenes have a large thumbnail and a brief description (which adds a lot of value). The file is downloaded right from the thumbnail, which makes things simple, but the downside is that there are no options for file downloads. The only option is wmv. The default resolution is 640x480 at 2000kb/s though there are several older files at lower resolutions. I’m not technically-minded so normally I’d scoff at the low resolution, but subjectively they look pretty good. The video is clear and there is no obvious pixilation. There is, obviously, no HD available.
The exclusive scenes usually feature an unknown (to me anyway) model or models. The models are usually late teens or early twenties and are usually fairly petite. The scenes often boast of it being a girl’s first porn scene, first anal or first ATM, or some combination of those. I have no reason to think that these claims aren’t true. The only well-known model who appears (in several scenes) is Hailey Young. Jamie Elle appears in what looks like an exclusive scene but I’m not certain about that.
One warning for prospective members is that the site has a bit of a sub-niche in that they seem to cater to people who like to see ‘dirty’ anal sex or ATMs. This isn’t a scat site by any reasonable measure, but the site does seem to take some delight in seeing an accidental discharge during anal sex. To each his own, I guess…
Several of the scenes feature deep-throating and face-fucking that are very hardcore. So much so that I suspect Max Hardcore and the guys at Facial Abuse would cringe. There are a few scenes with fisting and watersports too.
The non-exclusive scenes follow the same theme as the exclusive scenes: they prominently feature anal sex and usually deep-throating and ATMs. Well represented are the “Babysitter,” “Naughty Little Nymphos” and Teacher’s Pet series’, all from Notorious and all made around 2000. Subjectively, having these scenes is a plus because these were all great series’, but the negative is that these titles are also widely available on other DVD sites so a member with a large collection and who likes these titles likely already has them in their collection.
While the site is simple, it might be too simple: there is no search function at all. If you’re looking for a particular model or specific thing you’ll be sorting through the entire website manually. While a site this size doesn’t need a high-power search feature, being able to sort and search by star, at least, would be welcome.
The site does appear to update, with two scenes being added once per week. While other PU members have criticized this as being too sparse, for a small site that appears to make some pretty good niche porn this seems very reasonable to me.
I use Free Download Manager to queue up the scenes I want and had no trouble with this. The site supports this, and I didn’t experience any timeouts while downloading.
There were a couple of things that caused me some concern when joining. Trashman and bently both scored the site low and Trashman said that there were hidden download limits. I don’t think the low scores are warranted, but there is obviously a degree of subjectivity in both the previous scores and in my score. As for download limits, bently told me in a reply that they were gone and I can confirm they are. The second concern was they use two unknown billers. If I have problems cancelling later I’ll add that as a comment to warn others. (I joined through “paystar” or “paywide.”)
One billing quirk is that there is a link for U.S. customers to join and one for everyone else. That’s no big deal except that the price for non-U.S. members is $5 higher. I’m in Canada but tried the U.S. link and it worked. I can’t report how that might work for others. My suspicion is that this is a flaw imposed on the site by the billers, and not a cash grab by the site.
I’d definitely recommend this site, with the normal caveat that you have to like this niche. The site is small(ish) and somewhat simple, but the basics are well done. The exclusive scenes are very well done and worth the $30 fee (recurring at $15). After coming from a site that was ‘cookie-cutter’ porn, this site was a pleasant surprise in being well done and unique.
