Good diversity in models and photographers
Exemplary site layout/features
Live cam shows
Perhaps too hair-oriented
Mostly amateur themed
Pics often less interesting than videos
Photo sets need tighter editing
This is a tricky one for me to review, as I'm not necessarily the target market; nevertheless, I'll do my best.
Firstly, compare and contrast: I am very fond of any content featuring panties and nylons - especially tights - the longer they are teased/toyed with the better. I will gladly concede that things I could do with/to them, either on or off their owner, puts this in fetish territory.
OTOH, I also like pubic hair on a model. I think it makes the girls look womanly, sexually mature, and inviting; it is a thrill to catch a glimpse of it, or even to know I will do as the underwear (cf above) comes off; and although I've got used to shaved models, it is still a bit of a disappointment when there's only skin revealed. Pubic hair is natural and sexy thing, and I don't quite see why it's regarded as a fetish; and I do not further fetishise it by way of insisting there is LOTS of it (everywhere), playing with it, or drawing more attention to it than it creates itself. I just prefer it to be there.
Anyway, the above disappointment sent me in search of a suitably themed site; but it appears that there aren't sites for folk like me who just like hair - only for those who worship it... but beggars, choosers etc. The two obvious sites, therefore, are We Are Hairy and ATK Hairy. I looked at both of them and they seem very similar in style, content and even in model roster - WAH seemed a bit more glam, a bit better organised and with a more manageable amount of content to get through within a month's membership.
The mechanics of the site are exemplary; one of the best I've ever joined. There are the usual features:
* Dated updates
* Separate video and pic lists
* Model index
* Browse by category or tag
* Advanced search
As well as novel features like:
* Your own favourites (although oddly you can't favourite a model, only specific sets?)
* Browse by photographer (I tend to follow photograhers more than models)
* Custom zip downloads
* Webcam shows (I never got round to viewing any, but there seem to be a couple a week)
* Forum and comments on sets (albeit with the usual complement of spurious/disrespectful ones)
* Personal settings (how you view pictures, and what tags/categories to exclude if eg you don't like hairy legs etc)
And although not as vast as ATK, there's a good deal of content; generally 4-5 updates per day (3 photo sets and 2 videos), and with about 4 years worth of updates I make approx:
* 400+ models
* 3000+ photo sets, 3K, 100-150 pics each
* 2000+ videos, most 720p, 10-15 mins
Models are reasonably diverse in age - 18-40 and some beyond - and there there is probably just a little more ethnic diversity than on an average site. They can be broadly split - with plenty of exceptions - into 3 groups:
* East European (mostly Russian) account for maybe two-thirds of the updates - most girls are young, with pubic hair and otherwise neatly shaved. Some pretty girls but many do not let their personality or sensuality show; it would be nice to hear them talk more, even if their English was not good, or even in Russian etc.
* UK models - as above, most have pubic hair only - but get more chance to show their personality, with interviews, various dirty talking in masturbation and stripping videos, etc. These were the ones that worked best for me.
* US girls - tend to be more of the hippy type, with many more having hairy armpits, legs, etc. Again, they get interviews and some fun videos; some of the girls are very alluring but the extra hair isn't necessarily for me.
Photo sets are a bit too big for my liking; I prefer them more tightly edited, large sets get a bit repetitive. The style is relatively amateur (and I do mean the style, rather than the quality - which is generally good) - without much in the way of mood or evocative lighting - but still some fun sets.
Likewise for the videos - they are generally plenty explicit enough, most featuring masturbation with/without toys (also some GG and GB videos but much fewer). Many are a bit too samey, but some have a bit more of a theme - eg the very lovely Fawna Latrisch getting predictably wet and soapy when washing a floor; or a couple of models stripping out of some sexy officewear.
So, overall, although a great site, it doesn't quite work for me. It's only this that dictates my slightly lower score; if I was more of a hair and amateur lover this would easily be in the 90s.
I wish there was a site like eg The Life Erotic, or Joymii, that featured more unshaven girls; until that happens, I guess I'll stick to picking and choosing the limited amount of unshaven content such sites have.

Some hairy models are forthcoming and natural. Many are attractive or beautiful. There is no download limit. Videos are mostly solos, which is fine, and there a fair amount of time is devoted to closeups, which I like.
Files have a different name than they appear in at the site. Thus the site might refer throughout to “This Model playing with hairy pussy on bed” but delivers “ThisModel_HiddenPinkPanties”. This, combined with a URL system that disarms cookies, makes it all but impossible to keep track of which files you’ve downloaded and which you haven’t.
Videos plagued by artificial masturbation with lots of sighs and moans: really irritating. Also the site often instructs women to ‘masturbate’ by snaking their hands around their thighs from behind, a move as artificial and labored as it sounds.
Despite assurances to the contrary, downloads break under any Macintosh download manager I’ve tried.
Too few women of color (or age).
Minor- files are named according to some object in the room, not by date, so there’s no sequence to the files, as is the case at a major competitor.
Not a naturalistic site, which I prefer, especially for hairy models. If you don't mind very artificial masturbation videos with -lots- of ooooh's and aaaah's for no reason, you'd do fine here.
Hint to somewhat improve your ability to see your download history- delete the nonsense string ahead of "members" in the url and reload before downloading.
*Newbie reviews and ratings don't count toward a site's overall score/rank until the user reaches the Rookie status level (5 points). This rule is needed to help prevent fake (or heavily biased) profiles and reviews.

Just tried to join this site again. I renew at least once every couple of years. The best porn site says the site cost is $24.95 if you join through best porn BUT I found that the cost is actually $34.95.
I am happy to report that the previews of the videos and full picture sets are back! This is one site that keeps drawing me back to it, even though lately I have only been peeking, but judging by the updates things are getting better for my taste. I notice quite a few sets where the model actually wears panties and bra and some even start fully clothed. Might be time to re-join soon, as long as the webmaster doesn't decide to start including b/g material. :-)
One thing I used to like about this site was that you could look at a whole set (at least the thumbs) of pictures, or a short video preview, and make up your mind, based on the teasers, if you wanted to join or not. It's gone. All you get now is a quick trip to the sign-up page. Really too bad because it was those previews of whole sets (and glimpses of a video) that made the site different and classy.
On the 25th of November I wrote: "Going from glory to glory" because, as compared to another hairy site, this one appeared to have gone back to being moderate when it came to the publication of "hairy legs" sets.
So, here I am, just about to re-subscribe because I really like the new models, but to make sure I don't waste another subscription on a site I get nothing out of any more I do a quick search under hairy legs (my pet peeve) and get 17 updates since Jan. 2, 2013!! SEVENTEEN hairy legs sets/videos in 16 days.
This sort of puts an end to the standard exhortation by web masters that "if you don't like hairy legs you can always look at something else," because 17 updates in half a month is more than just the occasional nuisance that I can choose to ignore, it is a sizable chunk of the updates. This is insane.
From now on "shaved" is in as far as I am concerned .. with a sad farewell to two of my favorite hairy sites .. and one of my favorite web masters ... who, no doubt, does what is best for the bottom line but is no longer able to please a moderate "hairy bush" lover like me.
The usual disclaimer: My discontent is in no way a reflection on the value of the site itself. The material is still top quality, the rate of updates is still excellent .. if you love hairy legs go for it. You can't lose, unless Basil's search engine was off!
This is written with more than a tinge of sadness because their main competition, as well as this site, were staples in my diet for years and it is like losing old friends. But times and tastes change, so what can you do?
Ageism is so rampant in porno land that it takes courage to publish a model over forty. Three cheers for "We Are Hairy" and Tiffany T!
This new model will no doubt cause some negative comments from the younger crowd but her presence on this fine site is enough to make me subscribe once again. And if you think I am exaggerating just go to VB (if you are a subscriber) and see the storms of protest if they dare to publish a GILF video!
I had signed up for this site last week along with juggmaster but didn't spend a whole lot of time browsing around. Have been busy and just got around to checking out in detail today. Looks pretty decent. As I am a fan of the natural look, it is quite appealing. The only thing I see negative so far is that the photographs, although well-composed, aren't always the sharpest images when viewed at Super-High Res. The detail is there, it's just that the focus can sometimes be soft. Then again, as an amateur photgrapher myself, I know how viewing images at high res can bring out the slightest imperfections. Other than that, it looks very well done and many of the images will certainly make nice additions to my erotic art collection. Haven't toyed with videos as I am not much of a video person. Will get around to checking them out after a while so I can write a review with all my thoughts.
I really don't get how this We Are Hairy outscores ATK Hairy. In terms of layout they are about equal navigation/search-wise. Both have massive content, and some of it dates back at least a few years so they both have issues of not everything being HD. Really, when you get right down to it, it all comes down to content. And that's why I don't see why We Are Hairy is scoring higher than ATK.
WAH has some decent models, but even their best is almost average for ATK. My primary complaint about WAH is that it is almost 99% softcore, solo modeling. No action to really speak of. Even the masturbation videos they have are, well, boring.
As far as a hirsute fetish site goes, WAH is okay, they are certainly worth a look if you just want solo models doing little else than posing. However, if you want a littel range in your hairy porn, then I would certainly look at ATK Hairy because they actually have everything from "X" to "XXX."
Obviously, it's been a while since my review, so here are a few updates.
On the plus side:
The number of models has increased nicely (250+), along with it, the addition of different age and body type models. There are also a few ethnics now appearing on the site.
Picture viewing preference can now be set globally.
Custom zip files for pictures in 3 resolutions.
On the negative side:
I have to agree with a lot of the comments that have been left on here and on the site - weird camera angles, focus and lighting issues are far too common in a lot of the picture sets. Two recurring themes that bother me personally are the models pulling on their pubic hair throughout the set and similarly having to touch themselves or keep their hands near their crotch.
With the video, I've seen a considerable amount of scenes where the camera is constantly moving, almost in (for lack of a better phrase) an amateur-with-their-first-camera fashion.
I'm still an amateur fan and definitely old school - I like my women natural and I still like the site. Fortunately, Basil is one of the most attentive webmasters I've encountered and I have no doubt that anything that can be done to appeal to more people will be taken care of.
Does this website do a lot of photo editing that causes the models to have unnatural colors or causes the pics to look unnatural.
How are the poses? Are there a bunch of useless poses without having that good shot you're waiting for or missing some of those basic poses.
They should at least have these basic poses:
1)(full body nude shot with good clarity/detail) standing or lying down
2)(boob shot) from the waist up to include the cute face of the model
3) (vagina shot) model laying down on back with legs spread, but also with her face in view without being out-of-focus. Kind of like a missionary pose.
