Pros: - Well known, established web model, now doing hardcore
- Lots of outdoors scenes in risqué outfits in very public places
- Billing by CCBill with no pre-checked cross-sells
- Discounts on softcore site ($15.95 recurring instead of $34.57)
- Good interaction via website comments system, Twitter etc
- All content is downloadable
Cons: Points marked * don’t personally bother me:

- The amount of content doesn't currently justify the price
- Hardcore scenes in a minority and seem incomplete
- Sure that a lot of content is recycled from her old site
- Preview section shows 'live' webcam... this is fake
- Slow download speeds compared to other sites
- Navigation is not very refined and rather inconsistent
- Most galleries don’t have downloadable zip files
- Some galleries you have to download the zip to get all pics
- Lack of download options on videos (one format, one size)
- Large watermarks on images
- Excessive Photoshop filters on images
- Automatically generated username/password*
Bottom Line: I’ve followed Ann since before she even went topless, so to say I was excited by the prospect of her going hardcore would be an understatement. Sadly, at the moment her website is currently pretty disappointing.

Joining is simple. They warn you to make sure your phone number is correct as they will call to verify you’re a ‘real person’ with the call possibly coming from Ann herself. At no stage is there even the option to provide your phone number, nor (of course) do you get any call.

NAVIGATION:

Unlike her old site, navigation is inconsistent and cluttered. It uses a Wordpress template, and the member’s homepage has the most recent updates featured. You can view photo updates by clicking ‘gallery’ at the top, but to view video updates you have to go and find them – easiest way is clicking ‘updates’ then clicking the ‘videos’ tag on the right.

Other options at the top include news (not updated since November 2012), contacts (web form), webcam (LiveCamNetwork video chat) and her Amazon wish list. Updates are tagged with keywords such as blowjob, toys, video, etc, but the layout isn’t as intuitive or straight-forward as you’d expect. To give a few examples of inconsistency:

Not all galleries have zips. Those that do are only ‘preview galleries’ meaning you have to download the zip. To get into galleries on some pages you can click the thumbnail, but on others this pops up with a preview of the gallery, and you have to click the gallery title instead.

Also, some galleries clicking the photo thumbnail doesn’t take you to the high-res picture, you have to click the thumbnail, then a slightly larger thumbnail to get into the full-size image. So that’s two clicks per photo just to get the high-res image.

It just seems quite cluttered, a problem that will surely get worse as the amount of content increases.

CONTENT:

Currently, there are 44 galleries of around 100 pictures. They’re arranged 12-to-a-page with a thumbnail and gallery number. Photos are downloadable and are 2048px on their longest side and are good quality. Some seem to have been overly Photoshoppedd, and there’s a pretty big (1000px wide) watermark in the bottom right of images regardless of whether it covers anything.

Content-wise, many galleries are shot outside, but the lighting is good and I love the sense of danger this gives. Ann has always been amazing in this aspect, and galleries are shot in broad daylight in extremely racy outfits in public (albeit quiet) parks.

Ann is a confident, charismatic and engaging performer. She has a great body, and her solo stuff is still her strength as her webmaster/photographer/videographer can do her justice in this respect as he’s also the stunt dick which limits his ability to film the action.

Videos are shot from multiple angles, normally from a single fixed camera angle, and then a POV. Although the POV angle is shot with an iPhone, I have to say the quality isn’t too bad.

All are downloadable, and the video is embedded onto the download page as a Flash video which you can skip to any point in while it still loads. The only downloadable format is M4V, and there’s no options for quality which is a bitter pill to swallow when some are over 1.5gb and download speeds are slow at best (150kbps)

THE HARDCORE ASPECT:

Obviously, the selling point of this site is the fact it’s Ann’s gone hardcore.

At the moment, the ratio of hardcore content is pretty disappointing. Gallery-wise, around 10% features hardcore, and there’s three videos on top of this. More disappointing than this is that the hardcore content even in the hardcore galleries is pretty minimal.

Most start off pretty conventionally with her posing, before a few dick-in-mouth style pictures towards the end. The most recent hardcore gallery, for example, has 109 pictures, only 5 feature a dick, then 11 of a few spots of cum on her stomach.

The hardcore aspect seems a bit half-hearted at best. Most of the videos don’t ever really end in a money shot or really any conclusion at all, they just peter out. It’s not even really a case of them teasing us, it just all feels a bit rushed and lackadaisical, although I have to say the most recent video, Street Walker, is a definite stride in the right direction. But one good hardcore video does not a hardcore site make.

UPDATES:

There doesn’t appear to be a published update schedule. In the main, updates are pretty regular and reliable, but at times it can be flaky. All updates are dated, and you’ll normally get at least one or two updates a week, although there have been periods where there haven’t any updates for a ten-or-so day period, and promised updates have been late by several days.

SUMMARY:

Beyond the excitement of Ann going hardcore, the site is bit of a letdown. Recent updates hints that things might get better, but the hardcore content is largely disappointing and makes up a tiny percentage of content. The cluttered navigation and limited download options also frustrate.

pat362 (371) Thanks for the review.

If I read your review correctly then her site is pretty much a scam since she hasn't actually done any hardcore sex yet. She may have done some midcore stuff but that is not the same thing at all.

It's definitely disappointing, but I wouldn't call it a scam.

Photo-wise it's pretty bad really. Only 4 galleries are 'hardcore' with the hardcore aspect in each gallery only making up for about 10% of the content, and like I say, the pictures are all kinda the posed HC pics (dick in mouth, after the cumshot etc)

Video-wise the recent street walker one is definitely hardcore by any definition with them having sex in bed. It does feature quite a bit of action including a moneyshot, but that's the only video like that.

The outdoor fuck video is OK, but it just kinda ends, no conclusion or moneyshot and same with a lingerie BJ video which was shot outside - the description said they were interrupted and to look out for part 2 'soon' but it was posted in November and no sign of it yet...

I'm sure it'll get better, but if anybody's joining for the hardcore aspect I think they'll be disappointed.

The only reason I called it a scam is because there is so little HC on this site that almost everyone joining will feel cheated since this is suppose to be her HC site. This is compounded by the fact that she has a few other softcore sites so unless someone sees your review prior to joining then they will rightly assume that Ann is doing only HC stuff on this site.

That's not to say that a few months or a year from now that the site won't be full of HC porn but that won't help all the people who like you joined expecting some HC porn from a favorite girl.

Yes, I'd definitely agree with that assessment.

I think for nearly 5 months' of content, the radio of hardcore is pretty disappointing, but beyond that the quality of hardcore is pretty bad too.

I would definitely recommend her other site over this one if it wasn't for the terrible download restrictions on there. There's more content, it's easier to navigate and it was one of the best in its niche excepting the fact you can't download anything.

I find that her other site is even more of a scam because you can't download anything. I don't agree with sites that offer streaming only of their videos but I at least understand why they do this but I really don't understand why you would prevent paying members the ability to download the photosets. She appears to still be doing cam shows but I'm not sure if they are only for ehr site or if she freelances on other sites. She is quite active on Twitter.

Yep, definitely, hence my '...if it wasn't for the terrible download restrictions on there' comment. Will not be letting my membership recur, but will keep an eye on the preview area of her XXX site to see if it looks like there's any improvements in time.
