Pros and Cons
- exclusive content
- some high-def videos
- zipped high-res photo sets
- download limit
- inconsistent updating
- no bonus sites
Desperate Amateurs began in 2005 as just blowjob scenes. The videos gained popularity and then in 2009 one of the girls wanted to do more than just suck dick. This happened again a few weeks later and then the "just blowjobs" was over.
Today, the site is home to true amateurs doing whatever it is they want to do, which most of the time is suck and fuck and sometimes even play with multiple cocks and/or another pussy. There is usually a little interview with the participant before the action starts. In one scene, the girl getting fucked called the cameraman over to put his cock in her mouth.
To get a real sense of the content and the freewheeling amateur nature of it all you can check out the tour and watch the previews for each video. Should they whet your appetite (and anything else), I can tell you that the porn inside lives up to those expectations.
Currently there are 232 videos. They include the early BJ-only scenes, as well as everything done since, including fun behind-the-scenes stuff. The movies all come with the option to stream and download them in both clips and full-length files and they're mostly good in quality, but the newer ones come in HD.
In the photo section I found 118 sets of pictures with a downloadable Zip file for each. There are two to three sizes for each set, all of which contain high-res images. You will also find vid caps with each movie. You can also browse the content via the models section. Some of them only appear once, but others come back and become part of the DesperateAmateurs family of performers.
The creator of the site, who also happens to be the director and lead camerawoman, has a pretty thorough "about us" section that talks about the history of the site and how her filming and the collection have evolved. She explains that relying on fresh, i.e. inexperienced, talent means that not every shoot is going to be successful (some of the girls even back out before anything starts).
So to make sure her members stay happy, she's created an "update guarantee" for those who sign up with a recurring membership. This offers a minimum of four new video updates within a 30-day billing period. If for any reason she has not met these upload guidelines she will extend the membership billing period, so the member will not be rebilled until the four updates have been met.
I appreciate that by making that kind of pledge to her members she's allowing herself enough leeway for posting new content that she's not going to post every single video (whether it's hot or not) simply to meet a deadline. She can take a bit of time to bring you only the best of her efforts. All in all, Desperate Amateurs delivers high-quality content featuring attractive everyday folks in hot hardcore action.
