No Rest Network
This site offers a whole lot of bang for your buck — not to mention a whole lot of double penetration and extreme anal gaping. But be warned: It's not for the faint of heart.

If you're looking for a wide variety of extreme hardcore content, then perhaps it's time you paid a visit to the No Rest Network. You see, in addition to gorgeous gals being double penetrated — and with a smile, too — potential members are further tempted with promises of 11 websites, nearly 500 girls, and over 250 models.

Once logged in, I was greeted by your standard large network, or "mega-site" style layout. The main menu allows members quick access to all the bare necessities — scenes, models, sites, etc. — while the sidebar seems more dedicated to things like the network's top models(by member rating), latest content, and a powerhouse list of kinks. Speaking of which, there's 80 niches to choose from, altogether. Not unlike your typical mega-site, No Rest Network covers quite a bit of ground. What separates it from most of the rest, however, is that it's not afraid to play with fire. You see, in addition to old standbys like foot fetishism and facials, they've included quite a few "less than conventional" ones, too — lactation, extreme gaping, and hairy pussies, just to name a few.
Although, you'd hardly have to scroll through that long list of debauchery to get the idea. All you'd really have to do is take one half-assed glance at the main page. As I write this, the thumbs that represent the latest updates show young ladies stretching their(formerly) dainty ass holes with gigantic toys, trying to suck multiple cocks at once — hell, I even recall one babe being two wrists deep in ass hole. Suffice to say, this immediately sets the tone, letting the member know that this isn't going to be like their granddaddy's megasite. A fact that is also reflected in site names like Gag Girls and Gapes in POV.
Of course, all those kinky ideas wouldn't mean squat if you weren't capable of finding sexy ladies willing to sink to that level. But that's not a problem here. In fact, it seems to be one area in which the network excels. I truly cannot remember the last time I saw so many high caliber models being double penetrated, fisted, and spat on with a smile. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that, of the 289 girls on the list, a good 80% of them are European. Admittedly, it could all just be a big coincidence, but it's hard not to notice those sexy Eastern European accents and wonder if there's a connection. More obviously, though, all of these performers, no matter what their country of origin, have one thing in common: they are top-flight porn stars. Who else could take so much abuse without breaking a sweat?
We're only 2 months into 2013, and the network already has 18 updates to show for the year, most of which, I might add, fall under the more extreme end of the niche spectrum. These new updates look pretty damn good, too. Indeed, they have has come a long way in terms of raw play-back quality since their launch over a decade ago. What started with a variety of SD options, as well as moderately good 720p HD, has evolved into great looking SD files, and the addition of positively stellar looking 1080p HD. Also, their 720p files have — to my eyes, at least — improved dramatically since those first updates in 2001. The only thing they seem to have overlooked is including an HD streaming option, but if they keep things up in this fashion, I won't be surprised if they do fairly shortly.
Oh, and I should mention that, in spite of the bulk of material including Euro content with performers with very thick accents, you don't have to worry about subtitles, or worse yet, taking a course in Russian. Every scene I've downloaded or streamed has been in English from start-to-finish. This may seem like a given, but I can't count how many European sites I've been to where the language barrier was a huge issue. Plus, I think understanding the dialogue is of particular importance here since they have a number of "casting couch" and "first timer" style scenes, where the build up and "dirty-talk" is a huge part of the fun.
Fans of photography won't be disappointed, either. Every scene on the site has its own attached photo and screen gap galleries. The former includes great looking high-res images shot during the heat of the moment; the latter, while not nearly as clear and crisp, contains twice as many(sometimes upwards of 500) pictures, giving you ample opportunity to find stills of your favorite moments. These galleries don't really have any fancy viewing gadgets or anything, but they can be downloaded in full, which I'd prefer over a slide-show any day.
That having been said, this site was not without its issues. The first that really jumped out at me is the its navigation, or lack thereof. Aside from the menu, niche list, and ability to sort by rating, date, or views, there's really not much else. Ordinarily this would be enough, but when you're talking about 11 sites, over 200 hours of footage, and 221,000 photos, I expect a tad more. Similarly, I couldn't help but notice that when going from site-to-site, the layout and even the general style of the content(save for kinks) doesn't change all that much. They really should consider doing something to give these sites a little more individuality.
Also, in spite of offering 1080p HD files, which, as you can imagine, tend to be on the heavy side, their download speeds are mediocre at best. The fastest I've witnessed was a gruelingly slow 400 kilobytes-per-second. This isn't as much of a problem with streaming videos(although speeding ahead usually results in quite the delay while the scene rebuffers) but this is due to the fact that their streams are only available in a much lower, SD quality.
Their biggest flaw, however, is, without a doubt, their update schedule. Out of the eleven sites, nine haven't been updated in over a year. In fact, there's 3 that haven't been updated in nearly 4 years, and one(Anal Educator) that has zero updates. Worse yet, most of these sites had iffy update schedules to begin with, so we're not even presented with all that much material, all things considered.
If you're looking for a wide array of über hardcore material, No Rest Network won't disappoint you. The site covers over 50 niches, including some pretty filthy ones that you won't find on a lot of other networks. However, if you're signing up for one of the individual sites, you may want to reconsider. The majority of them haven't updated in over a year, and already had spotty schedules to begin with. That having been said, when it comes to extreme Euro sex, you could do a whole hell of a lot worse.
