||I realize that I can be correctly chastised by the members here for joining a site that is almost universally panned by reviewers. And the only review that graded the site fairly high was short on detail and long on subjectivity. But given that Iím on a public nudity kick lately and this network has a public nudity site I figured that it couldnít be THAT bad. This network might just be the worst Iíve ever joined.
The network is a collection of 20 unrelated sites that cover most of the usual porn niches with some emphasis on interracial scenes. Apart from the public nudity site I was also looking for access to several sites that feature Ďpartiesí like Frat House Fuck Fest and Bachelor Party Fuck Fest. The odd thing about the site is that at first glance it looks fairly well designed. It looks like many other decent networks, but when you start actually using the site you soon realize that there are serious design flaws.
Some readers may question this approach, but I will admit that Iím reviewing this site after downloading and viewing very little of whatís available. Iíd normally download and view a lot of scenes from a site before giving an opinion of it, but in this case while there are definitely scenes Iíd like to see it isnít worth the time or hard drive space to have them. All of the videos on the site are available only as clips. Even the newest videos donít offer a full video option. I can understand why this was done in 2002, but in 2012 it is a very rare person whoís internet speed dictates getting clips. To make matters worse, while the specs on the newest scenes seem reasonable, the videos actually look blocky and pixilated. Add to that that the cameraman canít hold the camera steady and that movement causes the pixilation to seem worse. The videos are difficult to watch. The newest videos come only as WMVs and are 720x480 at 1700kb/s and 30fps. I donít understand how all the tech stuff is inter-related, but subjectively these videos look terrible.
For older videos things are worse. I joined specifically to get access to Butt Naked in the Streets and was sorely disappointed in that. Itís rare to have a public nudity site featuring well-known American porn models in an American city so I had high hopes. Unfortunately the older videos come in at just 320x240 at 330kb/s and only 8fps. Iím confident in saying that when these were uploaded several years ago they werenít even close to being up to industry standards then, so in 2012 they look truly awful.
Download speeds are also well below what Iím used to with modern sites. I donít know if the older files are on a different server, but the older files I downloaded came in at speeds I havenít had to endure in years. The average speed I got was about 130kb/s. Thatís KILOBYTES! I saw speeds drift down to double digits frequently. Things were a little better with the newer files, with the average speed around 3MB/s. Thatís about half the speed Iím used to with other sites.
Iím not sure why, but many of the scenes canít be downloaded, they can only be streamed.
There doesnít appear to be any kind of search function at all. No tags either, so you just have to sort through the individual sites.
The network does update with one scene being added every three days.
The site has no independent biller. I cancelled my membership just hours after joining. Cancelling seemed easy and I got a confirmation email but Iíll be watching for additional billing in the future since one commenter had a problem.
The site navigation is strange and difficult to use. Selecting a site on the network brings up a window within your browser. Not a new window or a tab, but this Ďfloatingí thing that is superimposed over the main page. You need to scroll through it but its too easy to accidently scroll on the main page which then moves the floating widow out of your view. And too frequently I clicked my browserís Ďbackí button instead of closing the floating window, thereby kicking myself back to the login screen. This method seems to be an attempt to be innovative but it doesnít work and just seems gimmicky.
Thanks to TBP and PU I rarely get burned in a membership and had I trusted the members here more Iíd have avoided this disaster. Iíve been on a public nudity kick recently and having access to the public nudity site seemed to justify the risk but it didnít pay off. The best I can hope for now is that someone may read this and the other reviews and avoid this network. The porn here is actually pretty good, but it is so poorly shot and accessing it is so difficult that it doesnít make a membership worthwhile. I am definitely NOT recommending this network. The disappointing thing is that the themes on many of the sites are pretty good. The guys who hire the talent and think up the themes should fire the cameraman, editor and webmaster and start over.
