Pros: * Good quality photography
* Most girls are attractive and display a good attitude
* Good connection speed
* Navigation will mostly be familiar to users of other sites on Met-Art's network.
Cons: * Streaming videos seem buggy if you want to do anything other than watch them from beginning to end without pauses or skips.
* Lots of strange insertions and weird borderline-BDSM pussy play (may be a pro to some)
* Very little, and mostly mediocre, boy/girl content
* Some videos are basically just the photo sets with a camcorder running (can hear posing instructions etc)
* Navigation options are very lacking and search often turns up irrelevant results. Has a tag system but searches seem to mostly ignore it.
* Model names aren't consistent with other sites, even other sites on the same network.
Bottom Line: This is a site whose name I've been seeing for a LONG time. If it's not older than some of the girls in its newest sets, I'm pretty sure it's close - I'm fairly sure it debuted in the 90s, though it only specifically shows shoots back to 2005 at the moment, with selected older content relegated to an undated "archives" section.

I've liked a lot of the bits of content I've seen from them over the years, but never felt compelled to join until now. It seems to have recently been taken over by Met-Art. Like many other sites in their orbit of late, they're marketing it pretty aggressively, with a good discount available through PornUsers and an even better one having recently been e-mailed to current and former members of other sites in this network. On the basis of this, I signed up. Unfortunately I have just canceled after only four days (as always, the membership will still run for a total of a month, it just won't renew).

Partly this is because I mostly want boy/girl content and ALS has only recently started (or resumed - I could have sworn they had some in their early days?) shooting such content. I'd say well under a quarter of their recent updates (which occur once a day) have featured straight sex, and this content only dates back a few months.

However, it's hard to say for sure because there is no option to zero in on a particular type of content, other than a search box that seems to mostly pay attention to the (rather arbitrary) set titles. You'll look in vain for a list of categories on which you can click "boy/girl" and get a list of all the b/g content. Search for "boy/girl" and you'll get every set with "girl" in the title, which as you can imagine, is a LOT of them. This needs a rethink.

Once you've found what you're looking for, it's usually... good but not great. Nearly everything about this site is good but not great, actually (except the navigation which is downright bad). The looks of the models are good but not great, the creativity of the sets and shot choices is good but not great, technical aspects like connection speed are good but not great. Unfortunately with the number of sites competing for my dollar, "good but not great" isn't going to cut it. I certainly don't regret signing up, especially at the price they were offering as of a few days ago, but I don't see anything that compels me to renew.

As with network-mate Sexart (for which I would now want to revise my glowing review downwards a little), it seems to promise something amazing and groundbreaking but deliver something that's merely above-average.

Overall, I can honestly say this is a site I'd recommend, but only weakly so. It's definitely worth it at the very low prices on offer in various places lately. You might like it better than I did if you prefer solo or girl-girl action or if you're into things like a cute girl clipping a dream-catcher to her labia. (That kind of weird borderline-BDSM stuff is only in a minority of their sets, but it's conspicuous by the mere fact that it's there at all.) I can't say that's my thing; while I appreciate a more creative approach to porn, that isn't the direction in which I'd prefer to look for it.

RagingBuddhist (63) Great review!

Just a comment on the early days of ALS -
I could definitely be wrong cuz I'm now prone to way-too-early senior moments, but I don't recall them ever having boy/girl content on the site. My lack of recall might also be due to solo material being high on my "gotta get" list and the hardcore just never really registered with me. But all I remember is about 2/3 solo action and 1/3 girl/girl, both of which seemed to mostly center around insertions and masturbation.

messmer (137) I was a member in April, 2011 and there were no b/g scenes listed then. Must be something reasonably new.

Yes, as I said, they only go back a few months.

luv lickn clit (19) I was last there a few years ago, and there was no B/G content then. They did have some pretty good G/G scenes, and of course, lots of solo shoots. As I remember they do tend toward large and sometimes unusual dildos and objects for insertions. I liked their body paint scenes and Caribbean vacation scenes. You are right about some of the videos being nothing more than a camcorder running during a photo shoot. I'm a member at Met-Art, so I'll be taking advantage of the low price sometime soon--they have a decent number of my fav models there.

Hi Abel, I was responding to your: "Partly this is because I mostly want boy/girl content and ALS has only recently started (or resumed - I could have sworn they had some in their early days?) shooting such content!" with the emphasis on "early days!" I had never seen any b/g content in the early days. That's not to say they didn't have it but I never came across it. I hope this clears things up.

Abel Semen (3) Just as a general update, I was WAY optimistic even in saying "less than a quarter" of recent updates were b/g. There has been ONE in the last *21* updates. Though just prior to that there was a mini-run of them with four out of the previous 20 - which is still less than a quarter, but not nearly as blatantly so (only one set short). Still not enough for a merely above-average site to merit a renewal from me, but naturally, different strokes (in this case, somewhat literally) for different folks.

I have some JPEG's and even BMP's from ALS dating back to 1996 - these earliest ones are of an era that can not be found even in the archives. While they are sized around 374x600, they are still relatively sharp and good photography, just a little small by today's standards.

They are remastering the older content, which is a great development! Presumably it was shot on analog color film and scanned into digital images (as the name ALS scan implies), so now it can be remastered in ~2000x3000 resolution!

Interesting! If you don't mind helping settle the argument from March (see above comments), was there any b/g content in the 90s sets you have? I remember seeing a whack of ALS stuff on Usenet around 1997 or 98, but I don't think I downloaded much if any of it - at any rate, I don't have any of it now, as far as I can tell. I couldn't tell you for sure if there was b/g content in there, but I lean toward yes.

I don't recall any b/g content from that long ago. I have 67 peeing sets in my collection from the good old days (some remastered now!), but none with b/g action.

LPee23 (13) As I look further back through my collection from ALS's earliest years, I should take back what I said earlier. While I still haven't seen any b/g photos from the early years, there were some videos. I actually came across a POV b/g video with Mia from ALS that looks like it's from the early 2000's.
