Pros: - There is a cross-sell on the sign up page but it isnít pre-checked
- Bills through CCBill
- Great chance to see some new models
- Many familiar porn models appear
- Many download options for newer videos
- Supports download managers
Cons: - No zips on pics
- Pics relatively low resolution
- No search function
- No specific tags
Bottom Line: I have to confess that I never expected to be writing a review of a site featuring models with tattoos and piercings, Goth models, punk models and others along that theme. Iím as anti-tattoo as the next guy, except that it turns out Iím not. Iím still anti-tattoo and piercing unless the model goes all the way.

The biggest surprise for me was how conventional the porn here actually is. I donít know what I was expecting, but whatever it was I was wrong. This is a typical porn network that just happens to showcase models with a look that is slightly out of mainstream.

The main page is laid out as youíd expect with any network: there are tabs for going to pictures, videos, the individual sites, or sorting by model. One choice conspicuous by its absence is a search function. If it exists on the network I havenít found it yet. (This lack of search is further worsened by the lack of scene tags. Tags exist, but are too broad to be of a lot of use in specific searches.)

The network is made up of eight individual sites. (Cum on My Tattoo, Fuck me in the Bathroom, Heavy Metal Pussy Party, Joanna Angel, POV Punx, Punk Porn, Punk Schoolgirls and Big Boobs are Cool Ė Iíll post some stats as a comment on each siteís PU page.) While several of the sites have a reason for being stand-alone, several others could just as easily be grouped together. This is neither positive or negative, itís just a fact.

Each site is laid out in the same way: the site opens into a page where there are thumbnails for 20 scenes per page. Under each thumbnail is some basic information about the scene, including a scene name, the genre (girl/boy, solo, etc.), the running length, user ratings and the female star.

When you select a scene you get a larger thumbnail and four small thumbnails to give you some idea of whatís in store. Each scene has multiple options for downloads. You can download a trailer, the full scene or the full scene broken down into parts. I have to question the value of offering the scene in parts in 2012, but maybe there are still people with slow internet connections. For each of those options there are usually some choices for file type and resolution. MPEGs are offered (in resolutions up to 1400x800 Ė 5000kb/s and 24fps Ė depending on the upload date, of course), as are WMVs in high and low resolutions and a mobile version. These options decrease as you get into older files. Prior to 2010 MPEGs werenít offered but Quicktime files were. The oldest scenes on the network, which date back to 2007, are often only available in one resolution and only in WMV. The resolution on the oldest scenes is low at 480x360, 1800kb/s and 30fps.

This is being a bit picky, but the way the download options are laid out with the trailer as the first option made it too easy to select that instead of the full scene. It didnít happen to me, but it required that I pay more attention than Iíd normally do when just downloading porn. Even having a trailer as a download option seems odd to me, but at least they could put it lower in the option list.

The site supports download managers and I had no problem with the links timing out.

The network bills through CCBill so you have confidence in that. There is a cross-sell, but it isnít pre-checked.

If the site has a major flaw it is how they provide pictures. I donít normally download photos but in this case I was looking forward to doing so. I had flagged several models that I really liked that are rare on more mainstream sites and wanted photos too. I was disappointed to see that zips arenít available and that even if they were, the resolution isnít great. The newest photos are 1080x720. I know that isnít bad, but they could be better. Older photos are obviously a lower resolution. I gave up on getting photos since having to save each one individually seems like too much work for porn. The lack of zips really needs to be addressed.

I know this is highly subjective, but I found most of the models on the site to be very attractive. I do question why some models appear on the site though. Katie St. Ives has a few scenes here and Iíd not normally think of her when I think tattoos, piercings, Goth or punk. Donít get me wrong, Iíll take any of Katieís scenes when I can get them, but it just doesnít seem to be a good fit.

Dracken posted a comment back in í09 that the network appeared to be a Ďcommunityí site for people who like the Goth / Punk / etc. look and lifestyle. That is true. There are blogs and forums for the look, the music and the life. Iím only interested in the naked chicks so I really canít comment on the non-porn parts of the network.

The bottom line is that this is an excellent network. It is well laid out, easy to use and offers some great porn. If youíre like me and want to push your porn boundaries a bit then Iíd highly recommend starting with Burning Angel. The models are beautiful and the scenes are hot.

The next thing you know, you'll chose an avatar with bright pink hair and pierced nipples. Lol.

Good review, but I will stick with sites that are a bit more mainstream (except for bonus sites that are thrown in for free).

pat362 (367) Another great review. This site and it's associated ones have been on my radar for a few years in large part because of Joanna Angel. She is on my list of girls who sport multiple tattoos and who I still enjoy watching have sex.

Nope... the next thing might be acceptance of boob jobs. I was watching a Madison Scott scene earlier today and found myself okay with her massive pump-up - from A to DD. But I don't think that I'll be heading off to any big-breast sites (real or fake) any time soon. The tattooed models that I like are still young and petite.

You and I have a lot of similar tastes so my guess is that you'd like this site too. There is a lot of Joanna Angel stuff on the network. She also does a lot of anal here too.

hodayathink (18) As for reasons for segmented downloads even today:

Some people might only want to watch a certain part of the scene (i.e. just the blowjob, or just the popshot, or just one sex position), and if that's all you want to see you can save bandwidth by just downloading one part of the scene.

Definitely not. Too bad too because so many of the models are really beautiful.

Divinx (4) As you say, it is "a typical porn network", because it's as XXX as any.

BUT, it's not so typical after all, because of a couple of factors (besides the peculiar emo/gothic/tattoed/heavy metal niches it covers).

First of all, some of the performers are well known in mainstream porn (Coco Velvet, Dana DeArmond, Regan Reese, for instance), but others are newcomers, some of which may have jumped to mainstream porn, but not all. And some are just "photo starlets".

Also, the performers themselves are part of the community, comment on each other, have their friends and favorites. The thing is they really seem to know each other very well, and have a pretty funny time doing all this. Actually, there uses to be a lot of humour put into the scenes.

And the end result is that they do not look like "I am doing this only for the money, but I'm bored", but rather, "Oh my god, I love it". And I love them because of that.

Besides that, I appreciate the fact that they have trailers for every scene. It makes it a lot easier to find the content of your choice.

The photos, on the other hand... oh, well, I suscribe rearadmiral's complains.

(I'm currently a member of the network).

rearadmiral (322) REPLY TO #8 - Divinx :

fair comment, Divinx. I didn't spend any time with the forums so I can't really comment on those. I think what I meant (and admittedly didn't say clearly) regarding this being a conventional porn network is that I was expecting something different, and I suspect my own biases caused that misconception. What I meant is that since I had very little history with goth/punk/emo porn I was expecting something out there, pushing the envelope. What I was expecting I'm not sure, but what I got was some very good 'normal' porn.

And I agree that the female talent seems to really enjoy their work here, so that can be differnt from other sites.
