The last time I reviewed this site I scored it fairly high and I saw it as more of a network with a collection of sites. Now, three years later, Iím rethinking both of those positions. Iíve scored it lower because it now does more wrong than right, and when a Ďnetworkí also offers one main site where all their material is available I now view those niche Ďsitesí as being more like tags for sorting.
I really donít recall what the site looked like or how it was laid out three years ago when I was last a member but it now comes across as wanting to be a competitor to Videobox. If thatís true it misses the mark by a wide margin. MA has many of the weaknesses of VB without having any of its strengths.
The site currently has 7,475 DVDs uploaded. They also show 39,745 scenes as being available. For a DVD-based site they have a serious flaw in that if you open a scene it isnít linked in any way to the DVD where itís from and there is no information the DVD either. It appears that all the scenes are on DVDs but I canít say that for certain. I wouldnít join on the expectation that youíll get access to the DVDs AND get access to a lot of scenes too. I donít think the site works that way though it isn't obvious. (I also have to admit that while it appears that all the scenes offered in the niche sites are taken from DVDs on the main site I canít be certain that they all are. The way all the sites are structured makes that determination impossible. The effect may be that the site looks much larger than it really is.)
While the numbers of DVDs (and/or scenes) is impressive they only have 140 DVDs in HD. Where no HD is offered there are four resolutions of MPEG4 files available and listed as bitrates: 2000, 750, 500 and Ďportable.í For the few HD scenes here those are offered as 1080 and 720 (1920x1080 6000kb/s and 1080x720 4000kb/s, respectively). The highest bitrate scenes in SD come in at 640x480 and 2000kb/s. To be fair MA has access to a lot of older porn from the 1990s and 2000s (which I see as a great asset for the site) so I canít expect a lot better, but when VB uploads two HD DVDs per day MA looks to be lacking. Donít join here expecting a lot of quality because you wonít find it. (Of the scenes 39,745 only 2020 are in HD.)
Updates are another area where MA is lacking. But with the way the site doesnít link scene selections with the DVDs theyíre from it can be a little hard to tell. If sorting by DVD it appears that a DVD hasnít been added in almost three months but when sorting by scene the update schedule is better. There doesnít appear to be a regular update schedule but it appears that at least one scene is added per week and in some cases two scenes may be added per week. When you contrast that with VBís upload of five DVDs per day MA comes up short.
One weakness that this site and VB share is an over-reliance on compilations. Itís less acute here at MA but it is still obvious.
MA has a broad tag system for selecting scenes with approximately 115 niches tagged.
The site supports download managers and I had no problem with links timing out, though with the file sizes being so small that shouldnít be an issue anyway. I also found no download limits were imposed.
One advantage that MA has over its competition is that they offer porn in a lot of niches that aren't widely available on other similar sites. For example, they offer a lot of black-themed titles. Not interracial, but actually black-themed. Also, there is what I would call Ďsenior porn.í Not old men fucking young women or vice versa, but actually titles where all the talent is older. Finally, the site offers some gay material too, which seems odd on a straight-oriented site.
The bottom line is that Iíd only recommend this site to get access to some specific titles or studios that aren't offered elsewhere. Other than that this site comes up short in more ways than it succeeds. While it offers a low price through TBP/PU that low price isn't enough to offset the low resolutions for most of the videos. If youíre looking for an all-you-can-eat-buffet approach to porn youíre better off joining Videobox. VB is a much better value for your porn dollars.

Well just logged on to the member portion of the website and was kind of surprised that the whole layout has changed. So far so good, navigation seems to be improved. Love the changes, Just wish that i would of got a heads up first :s
A few days after I signed up for this site my credit card number was stolen and used. The company that processed the transaction would not tell me what the transaction was or where it came from but this was the only thing that card had been used for in weeks. Beware of scams and prechecked extras also!
Also unless your just looking for pregnant porn the updates leave alot to be desired.
... try to join this site. I wanted to see if the price listed by PU was the correct one or the price the site offers ($9.95) when you click on their icon. I gave a user name and password ONLY, clicked to continue the process, and was told that my credit card had been rejected and to try a different payment processor!!! When responding to that I was offered a blank box with blank options pre-checked!! WTF?? I tried joining through TBP as well as through PU!
The page here and at TBP doesn't mention any discount so I'm not sure if there is one offered if you join through the main network page. I joined through My Stepdaughter Ate My Ass and got a $9.99 price that seems to give me full network access. If I learn otherwise later I'll add a comment. But it seems that the way to join is through one of the sites that offers the discount.
First of all, I went to the massive access site and the price listed was 9.99 and not 8.99. No big deal. However, I signed up and was then presented with a receipt which indicated that $1.10 charge for two days and then an automatic billing of 14.95 per month thereafter. I called epoch.com and all they did was tell me there was no 9.99 option listed (though their billing screen had said it) and cancelled the charge. So I am out a grand total of $1.10. The dollar plus change is not a problem but the fraudulent representation is.
