I had noticed the comments about the ATK sites receiving overhauls and the Santa Claus of porn sent me a promo offer to rejoin so I was a bit, happily, surprised at the new changes. Everything now looks nice and colorful, easy on the eyes too. It doesn't feel like I'm looking at a site that hasn't been changed since 1998. So the initial appearance of the new format gets an A. The models are improving too, in my opinion, I have already found a couple I hadn't seen anywhere before, that have over 2,000 photos each already.
The update schedule is now much clearer and easier to find. By my count they are updating with 7 photo sets per day on Monday-Saturday and 10 videos on Sunday.
That's an impressive update count, 42 photo sets and 10 videos per week.
The newest pictures, tried 3 different sets from 3 different studios, seem to be coming in at a consistent 3000 long end resolution.
The newer videos have an HD option that is 1280x720 and they do run very smoothly. I had been having some problems with HD videos causing odd color blotches during playback.
Very impressed overall so far with this longtime favorite that I've had my share of complaints about over the years. The site is finally catching up to the models. I may even give Galleria a try after several years of being away since this one has impressed me this much with its changes.
I'd been away from this site for about a year. On the current join, I found some good improvements but also some things that had kept me away since the last time.
Being a pic fiend, I'll focus on that. Since mid-January this year, they've been doing pics in 3 sizes -- 1024, 1600, and 3000 -- with zips for each size. (Funny how the reviews have missed this.)
But they're still reposting older sets in 1024 on weekends. I wonder if they could repost them at least in 1600 instead. They've got some very nice "legacy" material of girls like Breanne Benson, Aneta Smrhova, and the latina Marlena, but these are nothing new to long-term fans of the ATK sites. They're just re-runs. Why not do "encore presentations" instead? ;)
And the thumbs for the newer galleries are bigger (good) than the older ones, so you get this mix of thumb sizes in the gallery listings (bad), the 125px thumbs mishmashed with 200px thumbs. It looks really tacky.
Who cares, you ask? It's why we have building codes, clothing sizes, paper sizes, and layout concepts. What would you think of a product catalogue that mixed different sizes of images on a grid, with big, empty white spaces above all of the smaller ones? Anyway, don't even think of asking me "who cares?" I don't fucking care if you don't. Go write to the International Organization for Standardization and tell them you don't care.
Getting back into the site after a year meant going through the many categories and trying to catch up. They've got 13 softcore categories and 10 hardcore categories. OK, fine, variety is the spice of life and this much has got to be the stuff of five-alarm chili, but why not have a straight chronological list to keep things simple? I mean, I don't want to have to think in terms of "dime pieces" or "masturbation" OR "toys." Just who and when will suffice.
Besides, once you get into a category, the only heading at the top of a list of galleries (this is also called a gallery) is the number of the gallery of galleries. "Gallery 84," for instance, of 16 thumbs to galleries. Of what? Like, where am I? There it is, in the browser's title bar! "nudism 84."
I know, they're trying to keep things organized, and they do, but it doesn't work anyway when you have to struggle to maintain a sense of virtual place while you're trying to enjoy the pictures of naked women.
Still, with the caveats explored above, I'd recommend the site. There's some very nice exclusive material. Quite a lot of it, in fact.
I was really happy to see that ATK Exotics now has full set zip files. I wanted to add this comment before re-reviewing it since the last review mentions the photo sets being only downloadable in parts. That always bothered me too. That's fixed now, so thank you ATK.
Besides fixing what I thought was their biggest flaw, they are still bringing in some of the best exotic models in the world. Emy Reyes is one of my favorites and they have 35 photo sets, nearly 5,000 photos there and 6 videos of her. Emy is fairly rare on sites. It's not too surprising to find 1-3 sets of her, so this collection is huge. Also, with the addition of the full photo set zip downloads, it's worth mentioning for the collectors, Aneta Keys has 11 photo sets on here that are very rare. I think all 11 are exclusive and these were early in her career before she got the tattoo on her hip/butt.
I'll re-review in a couple of weeks with more information as it looks like the whole site has been improved.
While rolling around looking for my next membership deal, I noticed that while ATK Galleria has a TBP monthly discounted price of $25, neither ATK Natural & Hairy nor ATK Exotics has that discount here. If you want to pay $25 a month for either of these two ATK sites you can join through paysitediscounts.com (sorry to the TBP staff if I'm cutting into your revenue stream here :).
The girls are of quite a few different races (aka not overwhelmingly caucasian), but they're all basically of the same body frame. It's like have 20 chicks with all the same bodies. Yeah at first it's nice, but after a while you want something at least a little different. Just skinny girls and small to medium sized breasts.
I am not presently a member. When I was, I thought most of the girls were great, but some of the white girls were not exotic and did not belong with the theme. Loved the explicit pictures, nice photography, but the videos were not interesting. Since I am a video guy, this was disappointing.
Over the years, I've been known for joining sites looking for content of my top 10 models. Most of them are not making a lot of new content these days, so it is giving me a chance to go back and find some models that I have looked over in the past.
I noticed they have a model named Wendy, that I know as the real Cumisha Jones, a few other sites have a Cumisha Jones that is blonde. This girl has jet black hair, very seductive eyes, and she is listed here as Wendy. Also to my surprise, there are 5 or 6 sets of a very young Aneta Keys, that I hadn't noticed before.
Still complaints are the 5 different zips for one set, I don't know how hard it would be to give an option to download the whole set instead of zips that have 12-15 pictures in them, but it would be a big boost to the site. The zips are still poorly named, model name and number is exactly the same from set to set. For example, Wendy 1 is the first zip in every set they have, this can be a problem since you have to group zip 1 with zip 2 with zip 3, but you end up with Wendy 1, Wendy 1 (2), Wendy 1 (3) and so on, that becomes a bigger problem when some of the sets only have 4 zips, others have 7.
Very frustrating and I think that one little difference would make the site much better. Forgot to mention, Black Angelica, they have a ton of her content, I just noticed her recently on several Euro sites.
I have not been a member because I don't like most of the models. They are skinny and ugly. The poses are always the same. They have several sites and you have to pay for each one separately. My recommendation--check it out for the free pics, but it's not a site I would ever pay for.
