First Impression:
Up for review now is Open Air Pleasures. This is an outdoor female masturbation site. Honestly, that title doesn't say "porn" to me at all, sounds like a description for an upscale outdoor mall - but I doubt you'll find this kind of material at one of those. They play up a nature angle in their text, but I see an awful lot of deck chairs in these woods. Actually, it's a lot more than just back yards, that just happened to be the first ones I noticed. There are boats and European cityscapes, and the important part, naked chicks.

The members area starts a little busy trying to explain the site and show the updates, but all in all it's very easy to navigate. There's nav links at the top and bottom of every page, lots of "next/previous" links, it's quite handy. The only ad here is a "shop" link in their navbar, not really what you'd call "misleading", right? Each video also has a brief trailer, and there's also a model index, both of which are handy.

The models here are all cute girls, attractive to model quality I'd even say, all trim to healthy physiques. Nearly all of the models are from, as I've put it before, the "cute girl" central European countries - Hungary, Czech Republic, etc. - it doesn't really makes of a difference where they're from, although I don't hear talking (hey, maybe it matters to someone). The theme is girls outdoors in various settings stripping and playing with themselves with or without toys. Sometimes "outdoors" means a garden with a roof and 3 walls but others it's a balcony or a boat or even the woods. The videos each run about 20 minutes or so each.

There are 89 self-hosted video episodes on this site as of right now. New content is added daily, they add a piece of the current episode every day until it's complete, so it works out to 1 new episode per week.

Videos are found in WMV and MPEG formats. They don't actually say this anywhere but the WMVs are the streaming vids and the MPEGs are the downloadable files. The top WMVs are 448x336 and 1064 kbps bitrate; medium WMVs are a respectable 400x300 at 576kbps, while the smallest WMVs are an unimaginable horror of 176x144 at 32kbps (yes, you read that right, "thirty two kilobits per second"). The largest MPEGs are 512x384, the smaller are 400x300. All the videos play smoothly except for the smallest WMVs which are so choppy they're almost useless.

Video quality is very good work - perfectly shot, lit, and framed. From a perfectionist's standpoint, the clarity could be a little better due to the amount of compression, but they still perform ok in full screen mode. It's important to note that the download MPEGs are actually a little bigger images with better quality and color than their WMV counterparts. Sound is decent when it's there, though much of the time it's fairly quiet on the set.

Each episode also has a photo gallery, so that's 89 photo sets right now. Each gallery has around 100-160 pics. And these are great quality photos, pro-level separately-shot stills, fantastic clarity and color and everything you could want from a picture. They're also a decent size from around 631x968 to 850x1280 and 170 to 400kb. Each pic page has navigation forward and back. There are 2 zip file options, you can download each gallery page individually or the whole gallery at once.

Bonus content is access to the 32 other sites in their network of similar quality and different niches. But there is a catch, your membership doesn't start you off access to all of 'em, just 10 or so, and they unlock 2 every month you remain a member. On the "bonus content" page there's a ton of links to various live cam chat - these really do have that free access, but they're intent is to upsell you 1-on-1 time, so it's also sort of an ad.

Negatives are pretty light. The first one is their server being a little slow - it doesn't seem to affect the videos though - no stalling but sluggish and you wait an extra beat for a picture to finish loading every once in a while. Also, pics and vids pop up in a new window while in the background the page you were on scrolls to the top so you have to scroll back down - minor but constant. And minor nitpicks but I do have to wonder about little choices: WMVs not quite as good as MPEGs, limited access to bonus sites at first, no background music on mostly silent videos.

Bottom line, Open Air Pleasures is a good site with really cute girls masturbating outdoors. The members area is easy to use, the models are very attractive, and there's a great number of episodes with weekly updates. In terms of quality, the videos are on the high side of decent - though not wondrous - the photos are amazing, and there's a fair number of bonus sites, without a lot of negatives. Open Air Pleasures is an easy recommend, yes the videos aren't as big as some out there, but the models are gorgeous and there's lots of content so this site is really worth checking out!
