Pros: - Decent amount of content around 5,606 videos (although most girl-girl and boy-girl scenes have three videos each) around 1,427 models and daily updates.
- Exclusive models
- More recent videos are available in multiple formats up to 1280x720
- All shoots have images available as ziped files, they also have a best of, which highlight the best photos in a nice gallery.
- All models look very natural, little make-up many are not shaved, just trimmed almost all look very next door girl
- The sex looks very natural, there are some awkward pauses, no insane penetration angles, the blowjobs look realistic.
- Overall the site has a fun, softcore feel with some close-ups of vaginas and blowjobs.
- A lot of the scenes have a before and after where they interview the models and the girls seem pretty relaxed (although there are some serious language barriers at times)
-In a lot of scenes the orgasms are or look real.
- Good download speeds
- Decent forum with many members
Cons: - Almost all of the videos have an old school feel to them, with highlights overblown and colors a bit faded. Even the highest resolutions feel a bit grainy.
- A lot of videos are broken up into various parts. Also the before and after interviews could have easily been lumped with the actual scene.
- Scenes tend to have a slow intro (I remember one video where the boy texts the guy for 3 minutes)
- The site's navigation is decent but takes some getting used to. There are videos labeled "intimate moments" which are basically solo masturbation shots, but there are also "solo shots" and "after dark" shots and when I say shot I don't mean a video I mean a collection of videos... trust me it makes sense but it takes some getting used to
- The girls are very natural looking and some could use a bit more make-up. I was expecting the same kind of models Backroomcastingcouch or Exploitedcollegegirls has, but the girls here seemed less attractive (IMO)
Bottom Line: Man, this site is something else. I've been a member of most major porn sites over the years and have seen many styles and combinations of content, but Abbywinters stands out as a unique product. If I had to compare it to anything else I'd say it's close to suicide girls in their focus on fun, softcore stuff and community (at least that's how suicide girls used to be back when I joined it a few year ago)

The great selling point of the site are the exclusive, natural looking models and the realistic settings and action. The site claims that all scenes are shot in the girls homes with their outfits and only (supposedly) with their boyfriends and/or girlfriends. To cement this claim there are before and after sex interviews where the girls explain what felt good and what they were nervous/ excited about, where they met the boyfriend, how often they have sex in private and so on.

Aside from scenes with boy-girl, girl-girl sex the site has "Intimate moments" scenes where supposedly the girls are alone with the camera and can be themselves as well as solo shots where the director interviews them a bit before the action. They also have a handful of "after dark" scenes where the girls are supposed to be dressed in nicer clothes and be more romantic. I hope they get more of these as some of the outfits were very nice, but for right now they only have a dozen or so.

Overall the site has a decent premise, unique content and a strong community of followers (and a great forum btw). If you like their style and the girls this place will be a great find and the 3 month membership a steal. However the scenes are far from perfect and you could easily end up disliking the site for how different it feels.

The navigation is efficient, but somewhat different from other porn sites and can get a bit confusing at first. The homepage shows the updates, but the preview images are not animated. The easiest way to browse is by looking at shoots and then either video shoots or image shoots (this way you get animated previews), but you can't easily view all models that video or only images and there is no way to search for top rated models or Russian models. Not to mention that older videos tend to be split into 10 parts and even more recent ones often have 2 parts.

Speaking of videos, I have to say that the girls look great in photos but in many of the videos they end up looking average, even a bit disappointing. I suspect that in order to maintain the vibe of the site everything is filmed with minimal equipment and it shows. Overexposed shots, some blurry close-ups, the sound of the camera taking photos in the background. It all contributes to make the site feel unprofessional. Don't even ask me how many scenes are shot in an extremely bright room with perfectly clean white walls or how overexposed reds look in half the scenes. Overall for me the technical quality was a huge disappointment.

The content itself is decent with a lot of the girls really into it and believable orgasms

However it's a bit slow paced for my taste. All sex scenes take several minutes before anyone gets naked. I personally don't see the need for a little make believe story (oh I'm a photographer, get naked. Oh we're watching tv, get naked) when there is a before interview where the girls say they are excited to have sex (especially when some scenes are only 25 minutes long).

Speaking of the interviews. Some have captions to translate the interview and those are great, the British accents on some girls are even better, but the broken English most girls have coupled with giggling every two seconds when they don't understand the question can get frustrating and took me out of the mood.

At the end of the day I see the appeal of Abby Winters, but I don't think I saved more than a handful of videos. The image sets are very good, but the technical quality and the poor set-up make this feel like old, old Pierre Woodman casting videos. I don't regret joining the site but it's not my cup of tea, I'll stick with Nubiles, which has a similar feel but much better navigation and quality videos.

Ergo Proxy (21) I liked your review because you address many points I would have mentioned too and the final score seems fair. Have you ever considered to look at "I feel myself"? Personally I didn't like it much but in your case if you don't mind they have mostly solo scenes they do have decent video quality and usually the pacing is faster.

elephant (65) Yeah very informative review, well done Draken

Personally the site isn't for me, I found it was just a little too natural for me and many models I just wasn't interested in seeing naked, but that said I did find a few real gems in there that are real cuties, it if had more cuties I'd probably re-join more.

As Creative Director of abbywinters.com I just wanted to clarify some points. All single and double masturbation videos are shot with just a camera and the model in the room. There is absolutely nobody else there, the operator sets the frame, lighting and sound and leaves the model in her room alone. This is designed to give the girl the most natural setting where she can masturbate to orgasm as she would normally do and offer the member the ultimate voyeur experience. All the girl boy shoots are done with real life couples, however the girl-girl shoots are almost always shot between non real life couples.

As mentioned in the review our site is about representing girls as naturally as we can, they all wear their own clothes and have complete control over how revealing they choose to be. We want to show real girls having fun and engaging in natural and provocative activities. That is why we make many of the stylistic choices observed in this review.

Whilst we feature amateur models we do pride ourselves of having high technical standards. So it was a bit of a surprise to read in this review that the video quality was criticized. We are all about keeping the focus on the model and not placing all of our efforts on technical quality but we still believe the standard of our videography and editing is strong and represents our girls well. We also have a range of quality equipment we use to achieve the naturalistic look we aim at.

Also I wanted to mention some features that have been added to the site around the time and just after this review that are exciting:

- mystery shoots- something never been seen before on abbywinters.com (some examples- girls commentary of girl-girl scene, orgasm race & POV Go Pro double masturbation video)
- radio podcast- 'girls talk' features girls talking about sex, last episode featured the topic of 'the female orgasm' with a live in-studio orgasm.
- aw education- models asked questions from topics (potential partners, sex, relationships and internet dating) with the view of informing men about women's issues.
- editor's choice- a fetish selected by the editors where the best compilation of footage from that fetish is compiled from our archive. Some examples are large breasts, hairy, red-head and peeing.

We also have plans to continue adding these bonus features to the site and advancing the innovation of the content we are releasing.

graymane (31) Excellent review. .... However, I'm having to juggle this thing around a bit because a lot of time has elapsed since this review and the recent one by staff (Vanessa).
Whoever, aside from whom I've just mentioned, can give me a more up-to-date progress addressing those issues dracken have mentioned in this review, I think would improve my perception considerably.
I've put a good bit of positive weight on Vanessaa's review, mainly because its new and, of particularly impressive importance, is the added webmaster's personal reply.
