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.
*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.

A quick tour revealed that WAH has been doing four updates a day since August! Very impressive. It does my heart good to see that this site is prospering and ever improving (despite my rather "frightened" comment a while ago.) I really was scared that "scary" hairy would take over, but don't see much of a sign of that happening. Thanks, Basil, for sticking with a good formula. Now, please give me more models in lingerie! :-)
... because I like the webmaster and his enthusiasm too much but I would ask all those who read my review to take off at least 10 points if they are not into a "hair" fetish.
Nine updates this month alone feature models with hairy legs! Mind you, this still leaves 51 fairly straight updates, but the site is starting to look way too earthy for me to feel comfortable seeing it listed at a whopping 99 under my name.
Therefore to all ye who may be tempted to subscribe: if you are into body hair in general, including anal, pits, arms, legs, this site will still rate very highly with you given all its good points. The quality, the lay-out, the search engine, the updates, the friendly and helpful webmaster are all still there.
If, on the other hand, you like clean looking girls who have remained traditional by keeping their pubic hair but who shave their legs (as everyone except for hippies and women in rural Transylvania did for as long as I can remember,) then an 89 would be a more realistic rating for you these days.
This is still a pretty good score for a pretty good site, I think! And with a bit of sifting you'll still get a lot of good stuff. I just don't like to see my 99 connected with hairy legs! Ever! :-)
You've been taken over by a different breed. I sincerely wish you luck, after all lovers of hairy legs, pits, bellies, cracks, have to have a site too but there has never been a time in my lengthy life time where I have met anyone who was turned on by extreme hairiness .. except now and that's why the reference to a different breed.
The site owner of ATK Natural and Hairy tried to tell me that people having my taste were still being catered to and he/she "proved" it by stating that only 38% of recent updates catered to the extreme crowd. ONLY 38%??
This love of hair everywhere on the body is something brand new to me and does not fit my ideal of feminine beauty. So, off to "shaved!"
I hope lovers of "extreme" hair see this comment as well because it can't hurt to get new subscribers who like the niche, and I am certainly not out to undermine an otherwise fine site or to dispute their users' taste ..!
"We Are Hairy" are certainly not as prejudiced in favor of extreme hair as is ATK N&H at the moment but judging by their recent updates they are getting there.
Thank Heavens I got used to the shaved look in the meantime, otherwise I'd really be stuck for anything to subscribe to.
I am sincerely sad about the recent developments but also sincerely glad that room has been made for the fetishists in the hairy category to look at and enjoy what they like best. Still wishing the best to this site and its webmaster, I remain,
After having seen that the honourable Messmer gave this site a 99 I couldn't resist and had to join it immediately. Now there's a lot of new content waiting for me to explore some of it is already downloaded and I was able to watch some of the movies they offer. This is a dream for those not afraid of hairy pussy. I did find some models also appearing on AllOver30.com and I'm quite happy with the mixture of mature and younger hairy ladies/girls.
Guess I'll have to write a review soon. The best model so far is 41 year old Carmen who knows exactly how to tease :-).
I was just going to upgrade my review to 99 but discovered I could no longer edit it so I'm taking the lazy man's way out by saying I promised this site a 99 once its content increased and it has. I don't think I'll have reason to rue the decision to give a site my highest mark ever because:
Content has increased considerably!
There are now three updates a day (2 Picture sets, 1 Video)!
Quality and erotic value of the picture sets and videos are far superior to that of its present competitors!
Webmaster is still as attentive and personally involved as he was at the beginning!
May this site escape the ravages of the present economic downturn, it deserves nothing but success!
You may have noticed I didn't mention lingerie. I am saving my 100 for the site that features the most sets featuring erotic undies percentage wise. Haven't checked out all the updates of this site yet so, who knows, I might do the unthinkable yet and give a site the perfect score! :-)
I like this site and really want to see it succeed, especially with so few quality hairy sites out there. But more and more, it's starting to feel just like ATK Hairy. Most of the models are the same ones that appeared on ATK a month or so before, and there isn't much turn-around. The same old faces keep reappearing. Also, although the image size is bigger than ATK, the fine detail in pictures just doesn't come anywhere close to what you'd see on Met-art or a few other high-quality sites. This might be down to poor photography, but at 3000 pixels, you should be counting pores on the skin, yet many sets on WAH just look soft in close-up.
The poses are also getting to be quite boring. Every set is much the same, with corny lingerie up to the last page.
As I said, I want this site to succeed and be good, but it's getting too repetitive and the image quality isn't among the top sites. I'll see how it looks in the future.
I hate to sound like a shill for this site but I love the way they make it easy for potential subscribers to make up their minds by making it possible to look at complete picture sets in their tour to see what they are all about. I just took a look at a couple of their latest updates (in reduced format, of course) and am about to re-subscribe because I actually found some sets containing sufficient lingerie to keep me happy.
As you know I gave them a high score in a review and I still think it was well deserved because they pay such attention to details that are so important to their potential clients.
Been a member for a few weeks, found everything to be fine. Just what I expected from the site after reading reviews and looking through the samples. Have been a member of the "other" hairy site a few times - all OK with wearehairy so far...
Except, I've had a few login issues recently. As in the Members link doesn't respond, keeps timing out...
Any other wearehairy users having similar issues (late October 2010)?
I've mailed support, so will wait and see what the response is like...
I just wanted to let everyone know that the good people at We Are Hairy hooked us up with special discount prices. They included a monthly, 2 month & 3 month discount options. This site scored well and if you have been on the fence about checking it out, now is a good time :)
