Reason: Streaming and DL Managers now possible.
Pros: Vast amount of old Aunt Judys/Older women material stored in the archives.

Very much improved members' page under the new management of ATK.

Much improved quality in Hi-Res picture sets and an even more startling improvement in videos over those offered by “Older Women” in the past. Most updates (except remastered ones) are now in true HD.

Same excellent search engine as in the other ATK sites.

Access to ATK Lounge.

No download restrictions.

Fast download speeds ... however, read below.
Cons: Streaming a video is discouraged, so that more bandwidth is available for downloads. Despite my fast download speeds (max of my modem) navigation within the site was sluggish.***

Download managers are not allowed. I wasn't sure if Firefox' DTA, when downloading one video at a time, was considered to be a true manager and used it consistently without being stopped. If I crossed the line, my apologies to the new managers of the site. ***

*** This was only recommended during the first few days. Streaming and Download Managers are now allowed. Score upgraded by 5.

Updates are a mixture of Aunt Judy and “bonus” picture sets and videos imported from ATK Natural and Hairy (Mature Hairy). This has caused complaints from those who are subscribing to both sites at the same time. I was surprised myself when I downloaded some picture sets and found that I had them already from a previous membership to ATK N&H.
Bottom Line: I must confess that it was a disappointing month for me. I had received an email by the old "Aunt Judys/Older Women” site offering me a membership for $ 9.95 a month (recurring), with the notification that the site was now under new management. I had not liked AJ/OW for a long time because the “tease and erotic factor” had declined dramatically over the past few years, but could not resist .. just to see how ATK would do with one of my formerly favorite sites.

My first impression was and still is: not ready for prime time. Without the imports from “Mature Hairy” their updates would be very skimpy but what saddens me more is that ATK's new content is every bit as bland as that of the former site in its dying years. And no I am not calling for hardcore material, just for more excitement in the solos.

This might appear to be a very unfair assessment when viewed from the “web owner's“ side but I have to repeat once again that any review, especially that of a layman, has to be subjective so take my score with a grain of salt. Not everyone feels the way I do. And I still believe that the new management will eventually create a very attractive site. If it will be for me remains to be seen.

Old AJ (pre 2007 or so): lots and lots of enticing lingerie, or a prolonged strip, on attractive “housewifey” models.

New AJ/OW (until take-over by ATK): most models came with three very basic items of clothing that they would take off within the first few pictures of a set, or within a couple of minutes if it was a video.

New ATK AJ: same thing, which can make a set very boring unless one absolutely loves a model and collects her, no matter how utilitarian and sparse her attire may be.

My old complaint, as in so many other sites, is that the tease factor has disappeared and, without that, so has my libido when it comes to most sets or videos. There are only so many positions you can place a naked body in so, why give them so little to wear and why undress them so quickly. At least if you dressed the women in more than the “bare” essentials there would be a difference from set to set.

I let the subscription lapse (yesterday was my last day) despite the low price because I could not find any picture sets during the past month that truly excited me. I gave some of them high marks because of the model herself, or because of factors like quality and lighting and crispness of picture etc. Or because of the way the photographer posed his models but it was done half-heartedly.

I sincerely hope that the pendulum will eventually swing back to the way things were and that at least one set from a shoot will contain a nice strip or lingerie.

LOL. Well, I am glad I didn't scare you off, CT. That's always my concern because my niche is so narrow and I am always afraid that I don't do a site justice because of my subjectivity. This is truly how I like it: take what appeals to you from my reviews and give it a try yourself. As long as you never accuse me of misleading you.

Thanks for the review! Just wanted to interject some things.

Download managers ARE ALLOWED. This was an old rule that was put in place due to rules from a prior hosting company. It has not been enforced in years, and the support site had it listed. It has been removed from the support site. All we ask is to be responsible and limit the amount of connections your DL manager is using.

One thing I will say about our updates is they are not skimpy we update 3 items a day, at least 1 video and 2 photosets or 1 photosets and 2 videos. Thats at minimum 7 new videos or photosets a week. Not many sites give that many updates in a week. Then on top of that is the bonus material from Hairy.

As for streaming, we stream our movies using Limelight Networks, they did the Olympics, the superbowl etc. They do not limit the bandwidth in any way. We do use RTMP as the streaming protocol and we do stream a very high quality file, so playback can be affected on less than ideal internet connections. However we will be switching to a new streaming protocol soon that should be better suited to smaller internet connections.

I hope that I have answered some of your concerns and feel free to ask if you have other questions and I will be glad to answer.

Hi ATKGray, this is all a bit dated. I got the messages re. streaming and download managers during the first couple of days of my original subscription. I have found out in the meantime ( a new subscription) that I can stream as well as download with Firefox DTA, so all is well.

As to the amount of updates .. there you will have to excuse me. The update rate is good indeed but I had just got finished subscribing to AJ's sister site ATK Natural & Hairy and compared to their daily updates AJ's seemed a bit stingy. Compared to other sites yours are generous indeed.

When it comes to bland content I cannot yet change my mind but was promised by ATK Owner that more sets featuring lingerie and more prolonged strip sequences would be recommended to all photographers. I am very much looking forward to that!
