Amateur Pie is a reality style hardcore site where amateur cuties get picked up on the street and find themselves starring in a porn flick. The babes are a mix of unknowns, porno movies, and a few relatively well-known porn babes. Membership includes full access to all of the Amateur Pie videos and photos as well as bonus access to over 20 additional sites in the network and even more materials offered through third-party feeds.
Amateur Pie launched sometime in 2002, and it seems that this amateur themed collection has gone through a few different incarnations over the years. Currently, the collection here is what I would consider a semi-exclusive. Although the materials seem to be filmed specifically for this site, they are offered to other sites as third-party feeds. In fact, all of the sites materials are actually hosted on a site called pluginfeeds.com. There are a total of 245 scenes available here currently. Although nothing is dated, I visited this collection before and it's definitely growing. The trouble is that the only update information for the network seems incomplete and inaccurate. I'd estimate that the collection is adding a new scene about two or three times a month.
Like most reality flicks, the Amateur Pie videos start off with a pickup scene. A group of guys heads out in a car or on foot to score a hot babe, and they never strike out! After meeting a cutie on the street or at a store, most of the action typically takes place in and around the car. One scene even features a hot 18-year-old who has a midnight curfew but decides to start fucking her boyfriend in the back of her dad's SUV, which is parked in his garage, at 11:55 PM. The amateurs these guys land range from barely legal teens to mature MILFs.
Throughout most of the sites archives, videos come at a pretty low quality level. These are offered for streaming only at 320 x 240 pixels, 500 kbps. Luckily, more recent releases are not only available for download but also at a far higher quality level of 1068 x 600 pixels, 4200 kbps. It looks like around 70 of the scenes are offered at this higher quality level and for download. The photo quality has increased with recent updates as well, although all of the images I viewed here or 800 pixels on the long side. Clarity, lighting, and overall quality have certainly gotten better over time for these amateur porn pictures.
Amateur Pie has an extremely slick and modern looking tour. A good number of scenes are previewed with images, text, and streaming trailers, and there is accurate information about the size of the collection. If you click the "more updates" button enough times, you'll eventually come to a page where you can preview every single one of the available themes from the members' area.
The members' area of the site is a bit different visually, but it's pretty easy to get around here. At the very top of the page, you'll see the main navigation menu which will take you to the site's home page, a favorites tool for saving scenes for later viewing, two different bonus sections with the included network sites and third-party materials, customer service, and a tutorial section that can help you learn how to use the site. There's also a third bonus section called "bonus network" which is more like an ad and upsell page than anything that could genuinely be called a bonus.
The Amateur Pie scenes are listed 12 to a page with a single thumb nail image and not much else to represent each one. Each of the scenes has a page where you can access the video and photo materials. Most of the flicks offer only streaming WNV and MOV files while the more recent downloadable releases come in your choice of split or full-length files for download in WMV format or for streaming and Flash format. There are a few different quality levels to choose from when it comes to the WMV format files, and these are easily accessible via drop-down menus. Photos are offered in thumbnail galleries which open the full-size images in a small pop-up screen that layers over the gallery page. You also have the option to download full photo sets in ZIP files.
While it's a shame that so many of the videos here are low quality and streaming only, the downloadable and higher-quality portion of the collection should eventually overtake the older archived scenes in number. The materials here don't really stand out particularly in the amateur category since so many sites follow essentially the exact formula, but there are quite a few good-looking scenes here, and the bonus package adds a lot of value to the cost of membership.
