Babes Cartel[Visit site]
You better stock up on the lube, because if you try jerking it dry to all this content, your cock will fall off before you've even made it 1/4th of the way through.

Babes Cartel doesn't specialize in running guns, dope, or even murder for hire. Instead, they simply eliminate the competition with their covergirl good looks and feminine wiles. They promise the hottest models on the net, made up of a mixture of amateurs, porn stars, and those naive, barely legal bitches that always make for an interesting viewing experience. Plus, I can't remember the last time a tour promised me Hungarian bitches. With the combined strength of 12 sites — equaling roughly 800 gigabytes of porno — you're practically stretching your dollar's buying power to its limit. A hell of a deal.

Sometimes when you log into a site, especially a network of sites like this one, you feel overwhelmed with the abundance of menus, links, and, worse yet, annoying ads. Often it gets to the point where it's practically impossible to even put the thing into words without writing a 40 page instruction manual. Thankfully, the cats at Babes Cartel went for a more simplistic approach, taking a traditional layout and spicing it up with some nice navigational tools. Using the search engine, content can be filtered by media type or 62 different categories/kinks. I know that's a really big number, and you'd think they'd have to be stretching it a bit, but they've actually included some really off-beat but descriptive ones like, "Large Areolas" and "Jerkoff Encouragement." And unlike many other sites, browsing content by model is actually a viable option here. Perhaps even the preferred method, considering the fact that this is, after all, a babes site.
Navigation aside, what really impressed me most about this site was the sheer number of movies and picture sets that are currently available. True, the archive dates back the tail-end of 2008, but even by the standards of a 3-4 year old site, these numbers are staggering. By my count there are 1669 videos and a whopping 6035 photo galleries. With the current schedule of daily updates, the archive will only continue to grow throughout your membership. So, strictly based on content count alone, this one is, in my opinion, well worth the price of admission.
Seeing as how this is a babe site, the model roster is, perhaps, the most important aspect of the site. You can tell they really understand this, too, because they've went out all out, both in terms of quality and scope. At the moment there are 1,698 models and, just as promised in the tour, they're a mix of big name porn stars, teens, euro babes, and full-fledged amateurs. One thing I didn't expect was to find a lot of old-school, legendary porn stars in the mix. This adds another layer to the site and the retro porn almost feels like a bonus. Very cool.
The action here is compromised of all your favorite hardcore goodies; solo masturbation, girl-on-girl, wild threesomes, facials, anal, double penetration, interracial, — you name it. As I mentioned earlier, there are over 60 categories to choose from, and they even have some softcore scenes for the faint of heart. It's really just a great collection of good, old-school style studio porn, and probably one of the better of its kind out there. Perhaps not the most original in the world, but since it comes from a number of sources, you at least avoid the burnout that would, no doubt, come from such a massive archive of likeminded material.
The latest scenes are available in an HD quality Windows Media file. The play-back quality on these files was great and the resolution was more than adequate. In an effort to please those with slower connections, they also added the option to download the entire movie broken down into 3 minute segments. If, by any chance, you're still on a dial-up connection, though, you'll probably want to pass. These files can get as big as 50 megabytes and that's ridiculously big considering their running times. However, since almost none of us are on a connection so slow, I guess it's a bit of a moot point. On a more serious note, once you really start going back into the archives, the video quality diminishes rapidly. So, if you're one of those guys who just has to have HD or he can't cum, the massive archive might not be so appealing to you. Personally, that's not a big issue with me, so I feel like I'm in heaven here.
My only real complaint about the whole video section in general is that it's sometimes inconsistent, especially the farther back in the archive you go. Some scenes lack streaming capabilities, others that are side by side offer different resolutions/bitrate options altogether. I was also a bit letdown that the scenes themselves, in spite of having a nice rating system and comment box, are really lacking when it comes to descriptions. The standard synopsis right now rarely exceeds a sentence, and it's often so vague that it could be describing hundreds of other videos on the site equally well. A little more information about each film would go a long way in helping in the decision making process, that's for sure.
The photo galleries here have a pretty standard setup. No fancy viewers or anything like that, just row after row of thumbnails, usually adding up to about 200 photographs. The latest galleries give you the choice between two different resolutions, one with a width/height of 1,500 pixels and the other exceeding 2,000. The images are clear and crisp, well lit, and look to be professionally shot. They are watermarked. However, the watermarks are tiny and, no joke, translucent. Probably the least annoying I've ever seen, actually.
As far as bonuses are concerned, it doesn't get much better than the 11 sites that come with your membership. The themes are all over the place. There's 3 boob sites, 2 handjob sites, a couple of porn star sites and a couple more babe sites, too. Perhaps the most intriguing of all, though, is Hungarian Honeys. I had no idea their chicks were so hot. There's also a webcam section, but it was a little disappointing, with its 3 off-site cam links. But with this much content, extras aren't really necessary, anyway.
Babes Cartel is a well put together site that, with the help of a top-notch and extremely diverse group of models, succeeds in fulfilling pretty much every promise on their tour page. Granted, the site's not perfect, and the older content is defintely showing it's age. But really, with an archive this big and so many sites to choose from, not to mention the hotness of the content, is that really such a big deal?
