This site is a recipe for disaster in many ways: it is simplistic, formulaic, mostly POV-based and uses only one male talent. But in this case the site is much greater than the sum of its parts. The simple layout works in this case since the site is based around the female talent, the formula may be the same in every scene but I found that formula added to the heat in the scenes. While POV can be annoying, the male talent here must have some serious practice because this is some of the best POV work Iíve ever seen, and finally, that male talent doesnít fall into the trap that so many other one-man-shows do Ė he doesnít ever lose site of the fact that members are joining to see the girls, not him.
The glue that holds this site together is the quality of models that get recruited. While there isnít a lot of variety, the choice of model is something that aims for the biggest chunk of the market: young, fit, petite, and usually Caucasian. Iím one of those people who like the siteís choice of models and I really like what the site has to offer. To further the appeal, the models are never caked with heavy makeup and dressed in slutty clothes. The site accentuates each modelís natural beauty rather than covering it.
A sharp contrast between this site and the sites I normally join is that the sites I normally join use the better known porn models working at the time. I have little experience with amateur sites but with very rare exceptions these are models Iíve never seen before or since. I have no idea how the site recruits the models, but whatever theyíre doing they should keep doing it because it works.
The scenes all have a common theme: a Ďcollege girlí is enticed to dip her toes into the world of porn. The girlís youth and appearance certainly lends credibility to the overall theme. A viewer could really get lost in the fantasy that this is an otherwise innocent college student who is about to do something nasty for our viewing pleasure.
Many of the scenes start with the cameraman / male talent picking the model up. As they drive an interview in conducted which is usually pretty interesting. In many of these scenes the interview progresses to some nudity in the car and is often followed by some road head. In rare cases the girl will actually ride the guy while he drives. Sure, itís dangerous, but itís great to watch!
Other scenes begin in a hotel room but there is still an interview process.
The scenes then transition to some posing, usually some oral on the girl, oral on the guy, sex in multiple positions and finally a money shot, usually on the face. Most of the scenes then have some footage shot after the scene, which is also interesting to watch.
The site layout is simple, but simple works here. The scenes all have the same theme so the biggest difference is the model herself. I do wish that there were some tags offered, though there really wouldnít be many. A tag for anal scenes (there are a few) would be great, and maybe even a tag to sort by the modelís age would be a good addition.
One feature that I like a lot is that while a lot of the camera work is POV, there are also two or three fixed cameras set up too. Thatís good to provide some variety but the site uses split-screens to capture two views at once. Half the screen might be a shot of the model getting fucked in the doggy position while the other half is a close-up of her face. This is a great effect and really works well.
Iím not sure if this is a pro or a con, but many of the older shoots arenít edited to vary the shots between POV and the fixed camera. Instead, they offer the full scene from either viewpoint. Iím glad they dropped this practice and started editing, but it does offer an option for viewers who prefer one or the other.
The site is large, offering about 320 scenes and it updates with one scene being added per week. Each scene is available as a single download or in clips if youíre only interested in a segment. The site supports download managers with no obvious time-outs.
Download resolutions vary. The best is 1280x720, 3000kb/s, many are 768x432 at 1800kb/s and the lowest are 640x360 at 1800. All are 30 fps. The older scenes donít look great by todayís standards, but they arenít bad. The medium resolution looks pretty good even though the specs would suggest otherwise. I think the biggest flaw is that the site could offer higher resolutions. Also, WMVs are pretty much all that are available.
Photos are available as singles or zips. I didnít download much, but what I saw was relatively low resolution at 1400x788.
The bottom line is that this site could have been a total mess if any part of it was badly done, but since all the elements are well done the site is very good on the technical bits. Once you factor in the newness and apparent innocence of the models this is an amazing site that I both highly recommend and have already added to my list of sites to come back to regularly.

No DRM, download limits, or pre checked cross selling.
Beautiful amateur girls in a good variety of shape size and colour.
Genuinely amateur and individual content with its own style.
Exclusive material and most of the girls will not be seen elsewhere.
Good lighting considering the niche.
Good download speed.
Girls listed chronological and alphabetically.
Inviting home pages and easy navigation.
Easy log in, site remembers your details, with only an easy to see word to copy.
Good customer oriented feel.
Poor rip off exchange rate with CCBill sign up.
Male lead can be a bit irritating at times.
One type of material.
No network of bonus sites.
A few too many fake breasts, and especially tattoos.
Condoms becoming more common.
Blurred face of male can sometimes spoil action.
Some bad camerawork and views at times. Can be amateurish.
New pics look like screencaps.
A polarised niche, you either love it or hate it.
It's just an opinion but Exploited College Girls, takes this niche and nails it brilliantly. The girl next door types are the type you wish really were living next door instead of that rottweiler, but you know you'll never get that lucky.
There is a real amateur feel here and a lack of gloss, but the girls are so beautiful they don't need much gloss, they just need someone competent enough not to fuck up capturing them on video, and merely need to look their natural gorgeous best. This is where ECG scores. It is professionally lit, edited, and photographed well enough to be erotic, with the girls looking stunning. For me it's an excellent blend of professionalism and DIY amateurism, which isn't easy to do, because so many times you see beautiful girls being made to look unbelievably unsexy, by lousy lighting, bad excessive makeup, awful camerawork with awful unflattering angles, shot by morons you wouldn't trust to shoot a rock without blurring the picture.
The recent shoots are dated and I counted 286 girls a few weeks ago. Membership gives bonus access to Backroom Casting Couch, (on a quality par with ECG), and Net Video Girls plus some free movies. This isn't a network, it's a standalone DIY site, with quality material, and beautiful girls. Given the one man and his camera thing, it's done in a professional enough way to show off the girls to maximum effect, plus you get plenty of build up, dressing, undressing, and walking around naked and semi naked.
This is just my opinion, but I think the guy does a great job, even though he may not win any humanitarian, or upstanding church goer of the month awards...or maybe he might, we don't know who he is, as his face is blurred out, something that is annoying and can detract from the action. Backroom Casting Couch is the same.
New video spec is 768x432 at 4000-6000 kbps and slightly older ones are 640x360 at 3000-5000 kbps, with the oldest being 576x324, but this isn't about HD pristine quality with models looking like they've been dipped in bronze, it's about one man and a camera, and at it's most high tech, one man and two cameras, with occasional help from a mate.
Old pictures sometimes look better than the new ones, because the new ones are screencaps rather than genuine photos. Old ones are genuine photos, and some of the bonus video footage was behind the scenes, where you could see these being taken. I love that sort of stuff, but sadly newer updates don't have any of that, although the main videos always have a certain behind the scenes flavour due to the nature of the content.
If you're a pic fan, this is not the strongest side of ECG. Examples of picture spec are 1400x930, 1600x1200, 1280x857, 1280x720, and 1400x788.
Some PU'ers have referred to the male lead as a douch bag, but given the abuse, both verbal and physical, some girls receive on mainstream sites, this is relatively mild by comparison, and there are no dirty tricks on sign up or cancellation, no drm, dl limits, regional discrimination, or pre checked cross selling. What you see and are led to expect is very much what you get. In fact the whole site is easy to use and is customer friendly. You can't say that about many.
The login is easy, and your membership details plus password are remembered, with an easy to see simple word to copy. Models are listed both chronologically and alphabetically and navigation is easy, with quite detailed previews of what an update is like, plus a long written summary about the shoot. You may not like the main man's tone, but you can't say he doesn't put in the effort. Photos are zippped, download speeds are fast, and files are numbered.
I found streaming facilities to be excellent even at peak times, when on other sites (VideoBox for instance) it's impossible to get a picture. A recent addition is the split screen view, where you see both the model's face and the other end at the same time, which is okay, but sometimes the two screens seem to get in the way of one another. There are a few scenes with condoms which are becoming more common.
When I recently visited the sign up page then closed the window, I received a $5 off offer if I joined now. That worked out at £17.44 for 30 days, which I accepted. When I went to cancel my subscription I received another cut price offer, which I was unable to accept as I currently don't have the time to download.
If this is the future of porn, with semi amateur girls, and semi professional shooting, done on a budget, I would be happy with that. I don't think it is, but what he is doing, with the niche, style of shooting, reality behind the scenes feel, lighting, camerawork, number of updates, price, and personalisation of site, works for him, and for me too as a customer. This is very close to how I would want to see reality porn with sexy looking amateur girls, I don't believe for one moment that is easy to do. Even the pros get it wrong more often than not, so hats off to ECG.

Iím on my third membership here and find that since the last time I was here the quality of the models has diminished. Most of the recent updates have had models that arenít up to the standards that Iíve seen in earlier uploads. If youíre a first-time member this wonít be an issue, but if youíre coming back to the site after a while you may want to look carefully at the preview pages. The same is happening with the sister site, Back Room Casting Couch.
This was one of my favorite sites and I hope they get their groove back soon.
What are the 23 bonus sites included in membership?
In PU reviews, bently and slutty mention the sister site, backroomcastingcouch, is not included in a membership to this site. And also that the membership price is too high.
So what are the bonus sites that are mentioned as included in a membership on the sign-up page, but not listed?
I was looking to join today so I clicked on the join link. TBP lists the monthly membership at $24.95. Today I was shocked to see $34.97 per month on the join page. Anybody else notice this? Is there another link to get the $24.95 price?
I have been averaging less than 200 KB/sec (total DL speed) since joining this site, hopefully it is just a technical problem, but certainly not promising. Also since logins timeout, download managers haven't been working so well (path disappears).
On the plus side, the content I have been able to download is pretty decent.
Also, in response to dracken's question, no network access from this site either - there are bonus sites but they all appear to be streaming only.
I really like the feel of this site, but does anyone know if it comes along with a subscription to back room castings? I would love to get those two for the price of one, yet no one is really clear about what your subscription includes.
