||I think most members here would agree with me that for a site to be good it has to have more than just decent porn. The site needs to be easy to navigate and the material needs to be reasonably accessible. That latter part is where My Public Dream fails. In 2012 having download speeds that top out at 300kb/s doesnít cut it, especially when the site offers some files that are getting close to 1GB in size.
The siteís premise is simple: take attractive Eastern European models and get them naked in public. Most of the scenes appear* to add some boy/girl hardcore to the mix.
Iím a big fan of this genre and one constant issue with it is that if it isnít done right then all the heat and titillation can get lost. Unfortunately this site seems to* make this mistake. I think European public nudity sites tend to lose some heat and titillation simply because public nudity isnít the huge taboo that it is in North America. The problem is that the public nudity can just seem common and normal. The best public nudity scenes (in my opinion) show the model as being nervous and excited at the same time while being nude in public. (As an aside, I noticed that one American NIP site, Nude in L.A. appears to be gone, at least temporarily.) My Public Dreams falls into the trap of making public nudity seem like an everyday occurrence. It might seem hard to do, but a lot of NIP (Nude in Public) sites can take an attractive and nude model and make that unerotic.
The site design is also pretty simple and basic. Thatís not a bad thing though. There are tabs for updates, videos and photo sets. Once on those respective pages there is a single column of scenes that can be downloaded. For the videos, clicking the download link opens another page with the download or streaming options, while you can open the photo set for single pictures or download a zip right from the main photo page. There is no discernable search function, but it really isnít needed either.
As of this writing there are 56 videos and 80 photo sets available. The site seems to update weekly with one photo set OR one video being added each week.
The site is modern in that they do offer multiple ways to see the videos. On the scene page there is the option to stream it there and there are download links below that. The videos are available in WMV format (codec 8) at 1280x720, 720x400 and 480x272. Mpeg files are available at 384x240. There are resolutions available for mobile devices too. I give full marks to this small site for offering HD, but keep in mind that they donít offer any reasonable access to that material. The download speeds are so slow that it is practically impossible to download the HD material unless youíre very, very patient.
I only downloaded the 720x400 size (which still took 15+ minutes to download a 300MB file). The reported size is what you get, but subjectively they donít look great. I noticed some pixilation. I canít speak for the other formats or sizes, but the 720x400 plays at 25fps.
Adding to the grief of slow download speeds is that the site doesnít seem to allow download managers. I normally use Free Download Manager to queue up scenes to be downloaded one at a time, but I couldnít use that. I had to download within my browser, which made the download speeds even slower.
One problem with the few scenes that I did download and watch is that the camera work is poor. Like a lot of NIP sites they have to rely on a handheld camera. The camera movement is at best distracting and at worse nausea inducing. The last thing I need is for my brain to start associating naked women with the need to barf.
Photos are also available, as singles or as zips. The resolution is low though, at only 800x444. Iím not a huge photo collector, but when I collect photos I want them to be better quality than this.
For fans of the NIP niche, it can be hard to find new material so you may be tempted to join this site. There may be some excellent material here, but I didnít find it. The slow download speeds are this siteís Achilles Heel and until that gets fixed I wouldnít recommend a membership here.
* My apologies to anyone relying on this review to make a decision as to whether or not to buy a membership. Normally I spend a lot of time with a site and the material on it and can make definitive statements. I have to confess that I canít do that here. I found the slow download speeds so annoying that I didnít download a lot. I cancelled my membership pretty quickly and left disappointed.
