- discontinued updates
- mostly mediocre-quality videos
- no zipped photo sets
Taryn Thomas is a real pornstar. She has done over 80 films for the likes of Vivid, Hustler and Red Light District, to name a few. She has also been nominated for various AVN awards including Starlet of the Year. Many of you might already be familiar with this gorgeous gal, but if you aren't then her site is a great way to do so. We sat down to interview Taryn for our blog to do the same.
Niko Bimini, the man behind the site, tells us about how the star of TarynThomas came to him after being dropped by the Lightspeed organization and asked him to help her build her own site. He agreed (and looking at her, who wouldn't), but on one condition: "If I can show your fans the real you." I wasn't sure how much of the "real her" we would actually be getting until I logged in. Then I realized that although I can see her latest journal entry, it's from October 2005.
There are 42 videos available as Windows Media files that give you mostly mediocre-quality playback. However, if you dig around a bit, you will find a few average-quality exceptions. There are hardcore mostly blowjob scenes from Taryn and other hot babes. While most of the content is exclusive, some of it can also be found on some of Taryn's DVDs as well as at the other sites she has filmed content for.
Besides the nudity and fucking, the best part of the site is the interviews. Taryn has such a strong, fun personality that just watching her joke around in a bra and panties is a great way to spend 10 minutes. Whether it is an interview, a masturbation scene or a sex episode, her lively free spirit always comes through.
There are also 47 photo sets. At least all the sets have crisp high-res images, but there are no Zip files. Most of the Taryn shoots are gorgeous solo sets, but there are also a few hardcore blowjob sets with her and some of her gal pals. You will even see her in some strapon action with another super-sexy gal.
A bonus section with loads of extra vid feeds is available (although many led me to an error page) and there's a members' forum, but it hasn't seen any activity since 2008. It's clear to me that a once promising site has let things sort of fall by the wayside. Taryn Thomas needs to start growing again if it's going to be worth checking out for more than a month.
