||- Curvy Latina who's easy on the eyes with nice (if fake) boobs
- Excellent BJs, loves swallowing, so great for people who like that niche
- Lots of different genres catered for; handjobs, BJs, sex, footjobs, solo etc
- Very good customer service, they always reply to emails from my experience
- Seems genuinely interested in interacting with members (polls, comments etc)
- Easy to navigate in a blog format with tags so that you can browse by niche
- Good blog that has been consistently updated with candid photos
- Long history of updates
- Videos available in two different sizes (LD and HD), also embedded as a flash video
- Photos downloadable as ZIP files
- Chica has her own Twitter page which is regularly updated
||- Not enough updates - averages out to one update every 10-14 days
- Older updates only have a single thumbnail preview (no gallery/flash video)
- Generally the softer side of HC, but plenty of hardcore sex in the archives
- Pre-checked cross sells on sign-up
||This is a great website with plenty of content, a long history of updates. It has the positive qualities of a smaller website to keep me interested; good interaction from Chica and good customer service.
It also has the qualities of a major website, such as well-shot videos, good quality content, polished navigation etc. It also has years' worth of content.
When I first reviewed this website, it was updated once-a-week, with an apology/explanation if an update was running behind schedule, but while there are still regular updates, it's a bit more erratic - some updates are within a week of each other, but most are within 10 days, and several even longer than that (it's been 12 days at time of writing since last update). I think even an amateur website should aim to update every week.
To their credit, they're not misleading anyone - I don't think they promise weekly updates, and the previews are all dated, but it does mean that it's not as great value now for returning members.
I love BJs and softer stuff like that, and if you're the same as me then this website is really outstanding. If you like what Chica looks like from the previews, then you will love the website.
If you prefer harder stuff, then her website might disappoint, but she seems to listen and respond to requests, and there's so many years' worth of content that for a one-month membership there should be more than enough to whet your appetite.
Navigation-wise, it's very much like a blog. The website preview is good in that it allows you to see how often Chica updates her site, so it's clear even before joining that it's always updated.
Each update will have a short written synopsis about the update, plus an embedded flash video which you can now skip to any point within without it fully loading (much like Youtube). Older updates don't have this functionality so you have to wait for the entire video to load.
The embedded video is good in that you can skip through it to see whether the video is worth downloading.
There are three different options for downloading videos: for the iPad (M4V, approx 125-150mb), Low Def (WMV, approx 75-100mb) and High Def (WMV, approx 300-350mb). File sizes given next to the download link.
For the majority of updates, there's also a thumbnail gallery with anything from 30-100 pictures. Some galleries are a bit small, some are fine, but photography is always top-notch. All galleries are downloadable as a ZIP. If you click the pictures, you get a larger version of the picture (approx 800px), but the full size ones are only available if you download the ZIP.
All updates are navigatable in a blog format with each update essentially being a post. You can click on tags underneath the update to see similar updates, so you can see all Facials, BJs etc.
Older updates unfortunately just have a short text intro and a thumbnail preview of the video. It's not a huge problem (many sites still ONLY have this) but obviously it comes as bit of a shock having been so spoilt elsewhere.
Now and again Chica will have guest videos which are generally the same kind of fayre that Chica offers. There don't seem to be as many of these lately, but you can find them easily when you browse the different genres anyway.
If you want a website that is high quality with an amateur feel, then Chica's Place is hard to beat. The slower update schedule takes the shine off an otherwise extremely polished website. Hopefully it will find its stride in this respect soon.
