Softblush is up for review today, and this site focuses on amateur girls. Their slogan, "home of the nice girl next door to you," pretty much sums everything up. This is a one-man show as photographer and webmaster. He finds girls, generally in the 18-22 range, who have usually never posed for any type of porn site before. Some are shy, only getting nude and spreading, while others will openly play with themselves on camera. Some even offer DVD's for sale with full hardcore action. The pricing setup is a little unique; you can join one girl's site for one week for $6, the whole entire member's area for a week for $10, or the entire site for a month at $20, which recurs at $10 a month after that. So the prices are decent.
Exclusive amateur content.
The girls and the content here are what will sell the site best. He does well to find cute girls who haven't done this much before, and then give you an inside glimpse into their world that we probably wouldn't see otherwise. They all fit quite nicely into the age range, and they show off a naughty girl next door side that's fun to see.
Other Good Stuff:
The webmaster writes pretty good and long stories to go with each shoot. It's a little clumsy to read due to the layout, and I don't know how much input the girls have here, but it makes it a little interesting at least.
The price isn't bad here, especially if you join the whole thing and stick around, which brings it down to $10 a month eventually.
Quality needs some definite work.
Everything here from the photos to videos looks like content we were more accustomed to a few years ago, which makes sense since that's when a lot of the content here was shot. Photos are up to 800x600 at best, and I'd look to at least double that for newer scenes, which isn't the case right now. Adding in some more professional lighting and locations could help as well. Videos are small, and definitely much more grainy than we're used to seeing. With competition so high among so many sites out there, you can't fall behind in the areas you're able to control like this.
Navigation setup isn't the best.
I get why it is the way it is, but I still don't really like the whole setup here. Each girl has her own area, which is good, but I think there should also be a full member's area for the members who chose to join that way as well. Put all the videos in one place, and photos in one place, and let us sort and search through them easier. Plus, the login process is a huge pain here (see below). Even the actual galleries are a bit of a pain, with each set broken up into several pages, only with 10 or so thumbnails per page available. If you like the story idea, it works okay, but maybe offer multiple options so people can choose how they want to view it.
Updates are undated, seem a bit slow.
At best, you might get a new girl a month, but nothing is dated, so it's tough to tell for sure. Thankfully, the girls do update with quite a few sets at once when they do come, but there's no set schedule that the site sticks by. They might do better to hold on to some content and release new sets weekly to give people a reason to stick around.
Download options are minimal.
Photos come in a single size, displayed on their own webpage. There are no zip files available, and no plans for any that I know of, which will definitely disappoint some of our users. Videos come in a single file type (AVI or MPG), with no other video types, quality levels, lengths, etc.
They could use more content here overall. There are around 10,000 photos, and under 60 videos. Each girl has several sets, but they never come back. I'd love for some girls to do new shoots to continue adding to their collections when possible.
While there are the initial bios available, and the girls have email addresses (which I don't know how active they are), there is no ongoing interaction with them. I'd love for some girls to become regulars and do chats, or blogs, or something to help you get to know them that much better.
Logging in to the site requires you to enter your username, password, and the hidden image for each girl's section. If you're viewing several girls, it becomes a huge pain. I'm sure it's setup this way since you can join each site individually; but as I mentioned earlier, offering a full-site option would help alleviate this problem for the members who choose the bigger membership.
The girls are cute enough, but everything is feeling pretty dated around here.
Softblush delivers on their promises of cute amateurs in fun scenes, but the site as a whole just feels very dated to me overall at this point. There are several ways they could upgrade to make the site better, in my opinion. First, bump the quality up, a ton. Even "amateur" sites these days have some pretty serious lighting setups, and offer much better quality than the 800x600 photos you'll see here. Second, offer a better site design and setup. We shouldn't have to enter our password for every single girl here to see it all. Third, offer up more options in the form of multiple video types, streaming videos, zip files, etc. Fourth, maybe get some of the girls back for a second go around, or even add some ongoing interaction from them. There's some good potential here, but the competition from the big boys makes this a tough market to do well in.
