Shot At Home, as you probably already guessed, is an amateur site. They claim their content is 100% "homemade and user submitted." They drew me in right away with the sample video; two crazed, tattooed young hotties rubbing each other's cunts whilst heavy metal guitar riffs play in the background. I was also quite impressed by how candid they were, going as far as to allow you to sample the first minute of any video in their archives. So far as I can tell, the amateur part, at least, is quite accurate. What's more, I honestly can't remember seeing any of this stuff before. If the members area can halfway live up to the tour page, then I'd say we have one hell of a site on our hands.

Like I said, what you see is what you get around here. The members page is virtually identical to the tour. The main difference being, obviously, that if you have membership access, you get full access to the content, too. Just in case you haven't seen the tour, though, I'll just tell you now that the layout is extremely straight-forward. The main menu only has five buttons, two of which lead to off-site cam feeds and dating pages. The content is all laid out in the middle of the page. The only way to really sort it is by category. There are 32, altogether, and they vary quite a bit.
Comparatively speaking, here's a sampling of the more "vanilla" categories: teen, interracial, hand job, girl next door, undressing, masturbation, etc. On the opposite end of the spectrum, we've got Sybian action, anal, and bondage. And if you like your girls all inked up, there's a tattoo section, too. What's more, I think you'll find an excellent selection of interracial and cuckcold action under the "couples" section. In fact, they have enough cuckold videos for it to have its own category. And it should.
I've waded my way through a ton of these videos, and I can honestly say I don't recall seeing any of this stuff before. I also noticed a user-submit button, which adds a little credence to their claim. What's more, they've got some great numbers. Especially taking into consideration that the site didn't get its start until 2010. Altogether there are 797 scenes on the site, and for such a large body of content, there's a high percentage of keepers. I don't remember watching one scene that wasn't jerk-worthy. Incidentally, they should think about getting a few more foot-job scenes, as the ones they've got are killer. Kind of odd to see such a popular fetish neglected.
To be honest, they could do with more browse-tools. I appreciate that I can sort by niche. However, with such a large amount of content, you need a heck of a lot more than that. I think it's also a little confusing that their archive, by default, is in reverse chronological order. It would be a lot more logical to have the latest updates readily accessible.
The video pages haven't changed much in the last few years. The inside has an embedded player that starts up automatically. There's only one resolution option for streaming, but it's usually pretty decent considering the genre. You won't have too many buttons to think about, either. There's actually only four: download, favorite, rate, and tweet. On the downside, your download choices are limited as well. There's only one, actually, and it's always the MPEG format. Honestly, the resolution is pretty darn low. I realize this is amateur content but you'd think at least a few of these wacked out couples would have nice cams.
I really have to take my hat off to whoever writes the descriptions here. Whoever it is goes into loving detail with every scene. The descriptions are always multi-paragraph. I actually remember one having eight paragraphs in total. He's a real pervert, too, always regaling you with sick details. Either way, you most certainly know what you're getting into before you download the thing.
Naturally, running times range dramatically. Some are a minute and a half whilst others are over a half hour. Users can also comment and like videos. The number of likes and five star rating combined make picking a video on the outside easy.On that note, I quite liked how hovering the mouse over a preview image lets you see several key shots from the scene. The first video was a pregnant, UK slut sucking off a dirty old man. Granted, it was grainy, but it took me back to the good old days of smut and sexploitation films. One minor negative is that downloads here aren't particularly fast. I had no issue with streaming. I guess the video quality wasn't enough to cause buffering hiccups. But direct downloads went at a paltry 600 kilobytes-per-second.
Sadly, it seems Shot At Home is strictly a video site. So, if you're a real pic-hound, this one probably isn't gonna do it for you. Not unless they get so many photo submissions that they're forced to surrender. Just an idea. It may come as some small form of consolation, though, that your membership includes access to a shit-load of bonus content. Just over 3,000 scenes, actually. It's streaming only but, again, there are no photographs, but with numbers like that it's hard to complain.
I definitely like my porn Shot at Home. It may not be pretty or polished like the professional stuff, but the content here is raw and, for the most part, very natural looking. If you enjoy amateur content, I don't see how you can pass this one up. Poor video quality side, the wide range of content, regular update schedule, and over-the-top hot videos make this one well worth the price of admission.
