What were you doing between the years of 1985 and 1995? Well, do you want to know what Paul Markham was doing? He was filming British amateurs and pornstars, as well as Page 3 girls, getting into all kinds of naughty fun in the process. And that is the content you will find on Astral Blue.
At this point AstralBlue has 175 videos and 265 photo sets. However, despite having 10 years of content to pull from, they unfortunately rotate their material, so even though it looks like they add something new to the site every day, the content amount has dropped since we last visited.
That content is a mix of niches and action. There are hot masturbation scenes, lesbo love sessions, hairy pussies, one-on-one sex, anal banging and threesomes. Some of the scenes are hot and others are a little awkward, but that kind of makes them hot in an amateur way.
Like some of the girls, the content is also amateur. There is a really relaxed feel to it all as the cameraman (who I assume is Paul Markham) talks to the girls before, during and after their scenes (but not too much that it was a problem for me), and they talk back and often interact while they get themselves off.
As for the quality of it all, the photos look very good and can be enlarged to a high-res size, but you have to save them one at a time. The videos can all be downloaded, but they don't all offer the same viewing options. All of them come with a good-quality Windows Media download and some also offer 3GP and MP4 options. All the videos also have Flash downloads and streams.
The design is pretty good and navigation isn’t a problem. There aren't any bonuses, but you did come to Astral Blue for the vintage U.K. action and there is enough of it to keep you happy for a while. It's just a shame that there isn't going to be more horny and bad-hair porn on the way. Also, the price tag is a little above average, which is disappointing, and there is a daily download limit of 2GB.
