Ashley Star is a busty blonde with a pair of incredibly big tits. She's an amateur performer who got started in the biz back in 2000. Her site is called Awesome Ashley and that's probably because her performances are really hot. However, her site isn't as impressive as she is.
It's easy to believe her claim that this is a DIY porn site made in the year 2000. Everything about AwesomeAshley screams mid '90s Internet. The design is a black background with basic HTML tables to help you navigate your way across the sections. However, there's not much rhyme or reason to them other than to distinguish files that have been converted into 3D or ones for mobiles.
Between those tables is video dump after video dump. You'll get a bunch of floating screen grabs and scene write-ups and you have to scroll through it all in order to find a specific scene. There are no search engines, sorting options, or the ability to rate or comment on anything. The tour page, which is already quite dated, is significantly more user-friendly than the members' area.
At the end of 2004, the material stopped being dated. The tour promises weekly updates, but, in my humble opinion, I think they deviated from that schedule. Also, most updates these days consist of converting existing files from 2005 and older into 3D versions.
That said, you will find 437 movies (including the ones in the archives). Most of them are broken up into clips that are spread out over a few pages instead of being uploaded together. Others are available as full-length files. The quality is a bit all over the place since Ashley is hard at work trying to revamp the older scenes.
Those that haven’t been upgraded yet, which is most of them, are available as average-quality MPEGs and the upgraded ones are available as good-quality Windows Media files. The 3D vids are always in HD and any video upgrade that was requested by a user is available as an insanely high-quality HD MP4. MP4s and 3GP files are found in the mobile section.
The quality is more consistent in the photo section, which is home to 352 galleries. The oldest ones still have great lighting, but are low-res. Meanwhile, the newer sets all contain high-res shots. You can't save the galleries in Zip folders, though.
The content shows Ashley stripping and posing, masturbating with and without sex toys, and also fucking her husband in POV goodness. She gives a great blowjob and looks fantastic when covered in cum. You'll also see her roleplaying now and then and often she wears sexy lingerie.
As for extras, you get a bunch of video feeds and you can organize a private live cam show with her over Skype. Live shows are also promised on the site, but I couldn't find her schedule anywhere. You also get some audio files.
I really appreciate the effort that the very sexy and Awesome Ashley is putting out in order to keep her fans happy, but good effort can only take you so far. The poor usability is just too overwhelming to make you want to put up with what is generally average-quality content.
