Julia Ann Live's tour page certainly looks promising. In addition to enticing us with imagery of said MILF Goddess decked out in leather, fishnets, even what appears to be a diamond undergarment — and don't get me started on all the filthy acts she's participating in — she promises "all the bells and whistles you could ask for!" among other things. Or her long list of uber hot model friends who've come along for the ride. Like new updates in HD, and, perhaps more importantly, the promise of Julia Ann's interaction with her fanbase. You see, not only is she the star, but a member, too. It almost sounds too good to be true. Let's find out, shall we?

Once logged in, you know you're at a site that's, at the very least, highly productive. The main page is buzzing with activity, which they make readily apparent by occupying their sidebar with times for upcoming live shows, including a countdown clock to none other than Julia's next show, which is just under 19 hours away as I write this. Note to self: set alarm clock to appropriate time. Anyway, the rest of the page is filled out with links to the latest updates accompanied by enough steamy stills and descriptive text to give you an idea. The main menu itself is unspectacular, sticking mainly to the bare necessities, with the only real standout categories being the blog and the site store. The latter, by the way, has quite the assortment of DVDs and peculiar sex toys.
The forum, though, is what really caught my eye. First off, there's a subforum for every single model, and surprisingly, they're all active. Hell, one subforum actually has 54,874 posts. A higher percentage, I might add, than most would probably suspect are from the models themselves. And that includes none other than Julia herself. All in all, I'm highly impressed. This far exceeds any personal amateur or solo model site this reviewer can think of. In addition to the forum, you can chat with Julia live and almost in the flesh, too, as she has a regularly scheduled cam show(remember that countdown clock I mentioned?). Oh, and since she also happens to be social networking savvy, you've got her tweets and facebook wall to look forward to as well. Does she have her shit together or what?
And it would seem that same intensity and dedication has been put into the production of her smut, too; every scene I've watched has been well lit, shot, and hot as hell. The themes are diverse — conventional hardcore and wild, fantasy cos-play — as are the kinks — everything from foot fetishism and BDSM to light-hearted, but candid interviews.
On that note, Julia is a natural performer, and when I see her in action, be it tame and solo or grouped up and rough, she always keeps me interested ... and hard. This translates to the photography, too, as she's just plain photogenic in general. My only complaint at all in the smut department would be that I'd like to see her go a little darker, and perhaps experiment with some really taboo stuff. But I get that feeling on every site.
But going back to the video quality, I had mixed feelings in this department. On the one hand, you are presented with some pretty high-res, good-looking stuff on the latest updates. On the other hand, there's only two download options, and only the one for streaming. Worse yet, natural though it may be, playback quality drops dramatically with the older updates — not so much in terms of resolution size — though that does shrink — but raw play-back quality. They almost remind me of that grainy footage on those old Sega CD games. And for that matter, some of the newer material really doesn't look quite up to par with the HD offerings of their competitors. Fortunately, it's getting better all the time, and I think these scenes are hot, unique, and exclusive enough to even it out.
The photo galleries are a similar situation, only perhaps worse since we're given only one resolution option, and not all galleries can be downloaded in their entirety. Plus, and again just like their video brethren, the photo galleries do drop in resolution on the older updates. One thing I will give them credit for, however, is exquisite photography, lighting, and use of colors. If you took away the watermark and made the resolution slightly larger, they'd be up their with some of the best. As is, they're still pretty damn good.
Also, despite all the user interactivity and wonderful features I was practically sucking the site off over, its basic layout and navigation could honestly use a bit of a facelift. The way content is currently organized is, at times, downright confusing, and at best, wholly inadequate. It's silly, really. I mean, with such awesome original material, the site deserve's a layout to match. Sadly, that's not the case.
And one last minor negative is that some scenes have really obnoxious "porno music" that, for me at least, totally kills the mood. It's also usually way too high in the mix, too. Bummer.
But all is not lost, friends. Even if some of the aforementioned hiccups frighten you, I have some news that just might help you overcome that fear. Your membership at Julia Ann Live includes access to 12 bonus sites. My personal favorite is Charlee Chase Live. She's just so sexy. But there's plenty of other porn stars to choose from, so don't fret if she's not your "dream girl."
Just based on the amount of hot original content everyone's favorite blonde MILF has generated, I'd say the current price of admission is more than fair. And there's certainly no lack of eye candy or talent since not only is Julia is a consumate professional, but she brought along a few dozen colleagues of equal stature, too: grand slam hitters like like Puma Swede and Natasha Star. Not to mention the fact that Julia stayed true to her word and kept up with that frequent fan interaction on the sites. These are some of the busiest forums I've seen in a long while, and it's awesome that the models actually respond back. So, whether you're a fan of Julia's or you just like top shelf MILFs in general, at the current monthly rate, Julia Ann Live' is a real steal. Give the old girl a try — you won't regret it!
