Dawn's Place Review by Spencer Dawn's Place

Review by Spencer

Released Aug 2, '14 , Written Jul 25, '14
Intro

Today we're taking a look at Dawn's Place, and this is one of the few solo amateur sites from the golden age of amateur sites left these days. Her bio looks a little dated, but she says she's holding strong at 29, so it's safe to say that she's well into her thirties by now. She has a MILF/cougar look to her I'd say. The site offers up anything from solo playing material to full hardcore action with her husband. Although she's not a swinger or anything, they aren't afraid to get down and dirty with each other. $30 a month gets you in the door here, which is usually a bit high for solo sites, but at least she has 11 years worth of content online to check out.


The Pros

  Pretty large solo site collection.

These days, most solo sites seem to be build around a model that was shot for a week and then disappears out of the picture. You're left with a small collection that never really goes anywhere. Since Dawn has been around so long, she has a decent amount to see at least, and it's spread out over a decade or more. Expect around 380 photo galleries, and 670 videos; this is definitely enough to keep you busy, though it's not her entire collection (see below).

  She seems to love all things sex and is pretty involved with the site.

As I just mentioned, most models these days aren't involved in their own site in even little areas. Dawn took the opposite approach and learned how to run her own site very early on in the process. So not only is she sexy, she has a little nerd quality to her, which I know a lot of guys will dig. To make things even better, she's way into her body and sex it seems and has a ton of fun in front of the camera. Her husband is one lucky dude!

  Decent interaction available.

I wouldn't say she does everything possible in terms of interaction, but she offers more than expected, especially considering how long she's been at it. She has weekly cam shows for her members, plus she has a pretty active Twitter feed. Her diary section seems to be gone, though there are some audio files there that aren't updated all that often.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Of course, all of the content here is all exclusive. It's expected these days, but worthy of a note here.
  • Updates still come in pretty regularly here with maybe two new videos per week, and a new photoset every other week. She'll also pop on an archive video daily, but those get taken down within a few days, so catch them quick.
  • The quality actually isn't bad here for the newer material. It looks good while keeping the amateur feel to it.

The Cons

  Older quality isn't that good.

Of course, when you've been doing content for this long, especially amateur content at that, you don't expect much in terms of quality. That's definitely the case here on the older material. Photos are tiny, videos are super compressed, and things definitely look their age.

  A few layout tweaks would help.

The navigation isn't all that bad, but I think things could still be better. Most of the issues have to do with layout for me. The extra stuff on the pages can get a bit long, and you have to scroll to find the goods you're looking for. This happens on the main page as well as the gallery pages. It also means that only 21 scenes fit on a page, and with how tiny those thumbnails are, she could fit a lot more on if there wasn't so much in the way up top.

  Older content rotated off, sometimes sold as an extra.

I don't know if there's a system setup, or what, but she definitely does not have her entire collection online at any one time. Her photos go back to 2003, and the videos only till 2007. Every day, some old videos are put up from the archives, but they're taken down a few days later. There's also a store section which sells longer archive videos for around $10 a piece. It's a little tough pill to swallow that you're paying $30 a month but don't get to see her entire archive. Plus, it just makes things confusing.


Bottom Line

She offers a great example of how a solo site should be, even after all these years.

Dawn's Place is still going stronger than I would have expected. I love looking at solo sites that have been around a long time to just take a look at how things have changed over the years, from the content, to the model herself. Her awkward posing as a younger woman has morphed into some solid photo sets these days, and all the oral and fucking are much appreciated as well. She's still pretty active with the site, which is rare these days for models, and it shows that she has a lot of fun with what she does. There are a few things that could use upgrades or changes, but they're not big deals as a whole by any means. If you like what you see in the tour, this is one of the few solo sites that I can say with confidence that you'll have even more fun once inside.
