Casting Couch X[Visit site]
Aspiring porn stars are apt to do anything to get their "big break" in the biz. But how far are they willing to go? As it turns out, pretty damn far.

Casting Couch X promises footage and photos of "real girls" who are "trying to enter the business." What I like most about this is that, while they, of course, make mention of the girls who actually end up becoming bonafide porno stars, they're also candid about the fact that others wander off, never to be seen nor heard from again. It's this sort of cold realism that, for me at least, is the draw with these sorts of sites. Anyway, why don't we take a look inside the membership area and find out what these girls are willing to endure to become "famous?"

Finding your way around Casting Couch X is about as simple as it gets. It seems their web designer went with the minimalist approach, forgoing high tech browse tools and search engines, and instead sticking with just a simple menu and links to the latest scenes. With that in mind, I'll skip all the navigation talk and focus on what we all came here for in the first place: watching naive, nervous young women biting off more than they can chew.
Being curious about what sorts of girls these days decide porn might be a good career path, I just had to take a look at their model index. I remembered one of the girls mentioning she'd found them through craigslist, which led me to believe there'd be plenty of legitimate girl-next-door types among the ranks, and if not, at least some super hot college babes. As it turns out, they have fairly high standards, as all of these girls are quite lovely. They don't seem to have any specific build or look in mind, though, because as I scan the roster, I see everything from flat chested, rail thin young gals to busty MILFs — yes, it seems sometimes that porn career is decided upon late in life. Hell, there's even the occasional babe covered in tattoos in piercings. Works for me. I like variety.
I also couldn't help but notice that they've auditioned quite a few chicks throughout the years — 190 to be precise. As a result, there's somewhere in the neighborhood of 213 scenes to choose from. Closer examination of their archives reveals that they've been at this since October of 2012, pumping out new updates an average of 2-4 times per month.
What are the scenes like, you ask? Well, true to the site's name, there is, in fact, an actual couch. It's very long, almost intimidating looking thing, spanning the length of the entire room, but far too narrow to look comfortable, and upholstered in the sort of shiny silver fabric that would be right at home on the set of any cheesy porno flick. Perfect.
Each scene starts out with the girl being interviewed, which I think is a component of any good casting couch video. They don't skimp out on this process, either. In fact, it's usually a good 10 minutes into the scene before you'll see any clothing removed. I think was wise on their part, because, for me at least, it's all the more hot once the sucking and fucking begins if you know you're watching a real flesh and blood girl, with ambitions and fears just like the rest of us. And as it turns out, these girls are just as "real" as any you might pass on the street. I was actually quite pleased to find a number of them were outwardly nervous and apprehensive, with doubt showing in theirs eyes all throughout the interview and post-interview process. Very hot.
Of course, they don't pay these girls just to answer questions, and around 15-minutes into the video they've inevitably been stripped down and put to work. I really liked the fact that, despite the somewhat raw shooting style of the scenes, they still managed to edit together a very smooth and cohesive finished product. I wouldn't exactly call it "polished," but the good audio quality and seamless editing of multiple camera angles makes for a very satisfying viewing experience. On that note, I think it's worth mentioning that, in addition to the usual stationary cameras mounted to tripods, the interviewer is also wearing a P.O.V. helmet cam, which is used to great effect during blowjobs and missionary sex.
And it seems they've dedicated themselves to this high standard of quality since the beginning, as not only do the earliest scenes exhibit similarly high production values, but they're available in high-definition quality, too. In fact, the only thing that's changed in that regard since the site's inception(aside from perhaps higher bitrates) is that now there's even more formats and resolutions to choose from now — 5 to be precise; everything from 1080p and 720p high-def to great looking mobile files. They were also good enough to include the option of either MPGE-4 or Windows Media with the latest scenes. I should mention, however, that the latter is currently only available in 720p.
Each scene is accompanied by a screen cap and "HD Pictures" gallery, too, so if you're after still images, I highly recommend you check out the latter, which is usually filled with over 200 clear and crisp high-res shots. The former isn't that great, but I find it's useful for gauging a scene before downloading. Speaking of which, download speeds here are quite fast, clocking in at just under 3 megs-per-second.
The only real issue I have with this site is its navigation. As I touched upon earlier, it's far too minimalistic. And while I can deal with the lack of sophisticated browse tools, I think they should have at least included descriptions for each scene. Currently, we only have the title and photos to go by. Well, there are user comments and ratings, which can be quite helpful in their own right. Honestly, though, I expected more.
To make matters worse, the main page has several ads that practically beg you to upgrade your account. I don't know about you, but when I'm paying for membership at a site, I expect not to see ads. I mean, if I wanted to see ads, I'd just look at porn on any of the numerous free tube sites out there.
Casting Couch X has some really great auditions in its archive, featuring fresh faced, nervous young women who are willing to do anything — and I do mean anything — to get their big break in the business. What's more, they obviously strive for high quality, not only in their models but in the production value of their scenes. Which, as you can imagine, results in some really high caliber reality porn. My only complaint would be that the layout of their site is far too simple, to the point that they neglect to even include niche tags or descriptions on their scenes. Still, I think a navigational faux pas or two is worth overlooking when the content is this hot.
