Judging strictly by the tour, it would seem that if you're into intimate — no, strike that, "erotic" massages with "happy endings," then the Nuru Network is the place to be. Hell, their motto is: "Hot girls giving slippery, full-service massages," and, even better, in addition to a tantalizing slideshow of unorthodox physical therapy techniques, there's over 580 previews images, showing a variety of massages, including girl-on-girl and couples.

Nuru Network has been cranking out hot massage themes — both in and outside of the parlor — since late-2007, so in addition to amassing a number of scenes, they've also had time to hone their craft. The art of therapeutic massage is, after all, no joke. Which probably explains why they've went above and beyond the techniques you'll find at those local so-called massage parlors. You see, the happy endings 'round these parts often involve a whole hell of a lot more than a lone hand or mouth; it's not uncommon to see full on intercourse, intense lesbian sex, or even a threesome. I also like the change of locales. A few of their favorites, it seems, are bubble baths and swimming pools, and even the occasional sauna. This contrast of the laid back, relaxing atmosphere(not to mention the massage) with the ultra-raunchy, hardcore sex makes for some very interesting viewing. Another nice touch is that their traditional, Asian massage parlor type scenes are actually surprisingly accurate. Outside of the amazingly speedy service, they pretty much nail it — from the tacky surroundings to the awkward table baths. Great stuff.
And as I said, they've only gotten better at since the early days. Current scenes are filmed much better than their ancestors, and video quality has improved leaps and bounds, too. The latest scenes are served up in 12 different formats: 7 in the MPEG-4 format, and 4 more in Windows Media. There's 7 different resolutions for streaming, too, ranging all the way from 160p to a fantastic looking 1080p HD. They didn't forget mobile users, either. By my count there's at least 7 mobile files up for grabs, including a full-HD one.
As I mentioned earlier, they've been pumping out updates reliably for over 6 years now. There's actually $scenes and 1150 galleries currently on the site, a number that should grow significantly in the coming months if they continue with their multiple weekly update schedule. So, if anything you can rest assured that you won't want for updates. This site's rock-solid in terms of reliability. It's also worth noting that that same dedication to continuous growth is shared with the model index. There's 552 girls at the moment, but as the archive grows, so will the stable — and what a stable indeed! In addition to a lot of juicy no-names, there's also plenty of full-fledged porno stars, like Asa Akira and Charley Chase. I should add, though, that this list includes the fellas, too — Tommy Gunn, Will Powers and Seth Gamble, just to name a few.
The photo galleries have, too, come a long way since the site's inception. Currently sets can be viewed in a sweet slideshow, watermark free, with a resolution of 1,280 x 1,920 pixels. They look great. Unfortunately, there's no way to download them other than individually, which is, obviously, annoying. Well, you could get some sort of download manager. But really, should you have to? This is a pretty standard feature, and not difficult to pull off. Seems an odd oversight. Especially when compared to the movies section of the site, which is practically overflowing with methods of content delivery.
I noticed a few more odd oversights in other areas. The movies and picture archives, for instance, have no timestamps on the outside. You have to actually click an episode to see when it was added, making it a pain in the rear to figure out what their update schedule is. They've actually been adding episodes quite frequently, so there's no reason for any deception. I guess they just hadn't considered it, or perhaps they were just trying to save a little page space. Either way, though, it's not good.
Similarly videos and sets have no synopsis. Just a running time, rating and view-count. Not exactly helpful when trying to quickly choose something to masturbate to. The model index didn't get away unscathed, either. Outside of a rating and number of views, the index really only serves to sort content by model. If you're interested in actually learning something about the performers, don't bother.
Another problem, but one that can't really be helped, is that the older content is, well, pretty lackluster in terms of resolution sizes and play-back quality. Fortunately, the current influx of HD updates should more than balance things out.
In spite of being quite disappointed with some elements of the site's layout and design, I still left Nuru Network feeling satisfied. The unique traditional japanese massage theme, their excellent model selection, their willingness to branch out into high-octane orgies at the blink of an eye ... all these things help me overlook all of those few, admittedly, annoying oversights. And if you're a big fan of massage themed porn, I think you'll probably feel the same way, too. Besides, at $14.95 a month, how can you pass it up?
