Amateur Clips features pro-am and homemade amateur action, lots of sexy French, Asian, and Russian babes, and a good mix of different kinds of sex. The site is part of the Maxihard network and includes bonus access to three other collections at no additional cost. Members who stood around for three months or longer earn a free month of membership to an additional video site featuring thousands of flicks. Let's go inside for the full scoop on this amateur collection!
Amateur Clips is a relatively new amateur collection that seems to have some time in 2013. When we visited at the end of that year, I found a collection of 293 movie updates in a video section that is updated every other day. There is also a single photo set, and with nothing new added to the picture section here since March of 2013, it's probably safe to say that this is essentially a video only site at this point. Members of the site get free bonus access to Mifosaurus, Porn 1820 and Sexy-Archives, and the small network has over 1000 scenes altogether.
The scenes here at Amateur Clips cover a range of amateur styles including stuff that is extremely rough and has a homemade feel as well as that are more "pro-am" and feature amateur women or lesser-known models in scenes that are amateur in style but still technically professionally produced. Around half of the overall collection here is labeled as being French, and I believe that the balance of the collection, for the most part, is a mixture of Russian stuff and videos featuring women from other parts of Europe. There's a handful of sexy Asian women featured here, as well. Within this mostly French and European amateur collection, you'll find a good mix of one-on-one sex, bisexual orgies, anal action, rough sex, reality porn style pickup scenes on the street, drunken teenagers going wild, and much more.
While the word "clips" in the title might make it seem like this is a collection of short video files, all of the videos I viewed here played out more like full scenes where you get to see the beginning, middle, and end of the action, and they're running time can range from about 15 minutes to well over an hour. The quality level here can vary some, and some of these videos have color balance that is a touch off or lighting that be a bit brighter. Most of what I saw was pretty much in line with what I expect from good quality amateur stuff. This is not an HD site, and the video quality tops out at around 640 x 360 pixels, 1700 kbps.
The Amateur Clips members area is found within the network members area for Maxihard. You can access all of the included bonus sites easily, and you can opt to view each individual sites collection or the network collection as a whole. Everything here has a nice and clean look with a mostly black layout.
Each scene here is tagged with several different category keywords. You can click on a keyword to see other similar scenes or simply select a keyword from the drop-down menu near the top of the page. There is no basic keyword search box, and there are some other less than full decisions in terms of the design and layout, as well. For example, while all of the scenes here have a title, you can't view them without mousing over each one individually. Rather than displaying the title by default, the site displays each scene's tags. A little bit of tweaking with attention to the user experience would definitely go a long way here. A model indexes provided but some of the models don't have a picture and while the index can be sorted in a couple of different ways, it's just not as comprehensive as I'd like to see.
The Amateur Clips video scenes are offered for streaming or download. Streaming versions are provided at a single quality level, load quickly, and you can easily skip around within the scene. Mobile and HD desktop versions are provided for download in MP4 format, and AVI format downloads are also available for each flick in a central quality level.
Amateur Clips offers a mixed bag of stuff that includes some authentic amateur stuff, some pro-am stuff, some obviously professional stuff, and everything in between. I enjoyed seeing the sexy French babes and other European hotties, and there's a good mix of action, but I'm not convinced that the site is as geared to legitimate amateur stuff as most potential members will probably expect. As a piece of the overall Maxihard network, this one might be worth checking out.
