Always Amateur is a non-exclusive site featuring scenes from various amateur porn themed DVD releases from the last 10 or 15 years. The site is part of a much larger network that offers dozens of bonus sites and feeds, thousands videos, and tens of thousands of photo sets in a wide variety of niches. Lets get inside the members area and get some additional details on this amateur sex collection.
Always Amateur hasnt updated since December of 2009, and there are over 760 video scenes available here. The site also lists over 160 amateur DVDs, but these seem to be the same titles that the 760+ non-exclusive flicks were sourced from so they dont really add anything to the bottom line. What does add to the bottom line is the rest of the huge bonus package which consist over over 70 in-network sites, over 55 third-party feeds and over 16000 photo sets in all kinds of different categories. The network this site belongs to is very diverse and has a little something for everyone.
Since the materials here come from so many different DVD titles, there can be some major differences in the way the scenes play out. Some are pure sex, others have some kind of plot ranging from the basic to the bizarre. Many of the babes here are unknown amateurs, but you will see a spattering of well known babes in early scenes shot before they hit it big.
When it comes to quality, there can be quite a bit of variation. Some of these come at up to 720x480 pixels, 2600 kbps which is pretty nice. Unfortunately, they dont always look as crisp and clear as the specs might indicate. Luckily, there are plenty of very good quality scenes as well, and I didnt see anything that wasnt at least worth a look. The photos show similar quality variation, but the best of the pictures looked better than the best of the flicks in my opinion.
The Always Amateur tour pages are done in bright pink and are set up a bit differently than most tours these days. Instead of listing specific scenes that members get access to along with previews, this one just presents a series of crowded pages of images that give very little detail about whats inside. You can tell what kid of models youll see, but thats about it. This is one of the least informative tours Ive seen in a long while.
The color scheme continues on the inside, and things are much cleaner and nicer looking. The sites core collection of videos can be sorted by views, ratings, and most favorited, and a basic keyword search box and very simple model index are provided. I would like to see more comprehensive search options for a network this size.
All of the flicks here are offered for viewing in a Flash streaming format, and WMV and MP4 are available for download. Each comes in two sizes, and one of the MP4 versions is pre-formatted for your portable devices like iPods and PSPs. In the photo section, you can view the sets in thumbnail galleries or download them in ZIP files.
Always Amateur is a pretty mediocre site within the amateur porn category and offers DVD materials that can be seen elsewhere in better layouts and maybe even higher quality levels. Those looking for the best of the best in the amateur niche will most likely be disappointed with this non-exclusive and mostly older collection of materials. The huge network bonus package is the biggest draw here, so check out the bonus sites before you spend your cash.
