Suburban Amateurs, just as the name implies, seeks out British babes from random neighborhoods. Basically, anyone appropriately hot, and with no prior porn experience, obviously. The model selection looks fantastic, not a minger in sight. It's quite varied, too, just as promised on the tour, "From shy first timers, naughty wives and girlfriends to Britains hottest models." Another plus is that you're allowed to see the entire members area, all before spending a dime. Just login as a guest and see for yourself. Me, I'm going inside to checkout those 500+ movies and 310,000 photographs.

Amateur porn sites are often rife with amateur web design. That's not the case here, though. I was quite pleased to find a neatly organized, user-friendly members page. The page looked surprisingly sleek and modern, even including a cool little slide show for previewing upcoming updates. They also proudly display their stats, which, by the way, by my count are 2135 photo galleries and 568 scenes. The galleries were listed by number of photos. Judging by my rough estimation of the average number of photos per gallery, they're accurate. That's over 300,000 photos, altogether. Not too shabby.
The advanced search engine was nice, allowing the user to sort content using up to 90 different niches. You can also enter your own keywords, or simply sort the content by date or media-type. The niche list was great, though, because it covered every popular fetish/kink imaginable — and quite a few I didn't expect, too. The bloopers section was a lot of fun.
Navigation aside, if anything, I'm impressed by their longevity. It's relatively easy to create a half-assed amateur site, what with the bar being so low on production values and all. But Suburban Commandos always had its own unique take on the genre, and I think their model selection goes a long way in keeping things interesting. The tour promised a mixture of girl-next-door types and models, and I'd say that's a pretty accurate assessment. Out of the 262 girls currently on their roster, I saw everything from plain-Jane to runway model gorgeous. There were also a few older birds. More than enough to sate the appetite of the casual MILF fan, that's for sure. Not surprisingly, the gals are mostly white, but given the boom in multiculturalism, I think it's a safe bet that we will get more and more exotic beauties with future updates.
As I mentioned earlier, the site launched almost 10 years ago, so they aren't hurting for material. And as far as I know, the entire archive is 100% exclusive. I certainly don't recall seeing any of this stuff before. I had a blast going through the various scenes. As I said, they cover a lot of fetishes. Some of their foot fetish videos are better than a lot of ones I've seen from so-called foot fetish sites. On the downside, sometimes I feel they might be spreading themselves too thin, as a few scenes I checked out felt a little on the generic side. Nothing is worse than seeing a girl poorly faking it. For the most part, though, you'll find super hot, varied action with extremely naughty British sluts at the forefront. If the accent does anything for you at all, you'll be quite pleased with the scenes here, as there's usually plenty of dialogue.
The scenes sometimes have a plot, which is both good and bad. I think it's a lot of fun, seeing these girls put in various scenarios. The office stuff, usually nylon, was really well done. On the opposite side of the coin, this will take a lot of people out of it, kind of killing that spontaneous, amateur feel. Luckily, there's some raw gritty stuff thrown into the mix to balance things out.
One thing that isn't raw and gritty, though — at least with the latest updates — is the downloads. They add a new video and photo gallery everything week, and quality is great with both. I checked out the videos first. Each video page has a embedded player, brief synopsis, rating, running time, and clear date-marks. I also like that when hovering your mouse over a thumbnail, it flips through various still shots from the scene, giving you a little more of an idea of what you're in for. Anyway, you get three options for download. Format wise, you've got your choice of DiVX or Windows Media. And if you wanna watch your porn on the go, don't sweat it. There's an mobile-friendly MPEG file as well.
Play-back quality on the latest updates was excellent. Videos are super-high quality and I found the latest additions to have adopted a very cinematic feel. A strange departure from their older scenes, but I'm not complaining. Naturally, the older videos aren't quite up to par, seeing as how they go back near a decade. That's the nature of the beast, though. But with multiple weekly updates, members should be up to their knees in HD.
The photos, too, were superb. Even in the earliest updates, dating all the way back to 2003, photos had a decent resolution. The latest offerings are so big that their pixel width is nearing 4k. What's more, these images are well shot, lit, and, without a doubt, fucking hot. No matter the girl's background or experience — whether she's had former modeling experience or worked fast food all her life, these photographers seem to know how to bring the best out in them. Definitely not your typical "amateur" photography.
As far as extras go, members of Suburban Amateurs are treated to six bonus sites. It's a U.K. heavy list, but a nice little variety pack of smut. In addition to the UK Amateur sites, you're treated to more colorful titles, like One Eyed Jack Videos.
Suburban Amateurs has been in the game a long time, and their steady and frequent update schedule has allowed them to built a formidable archive of lewd acts from the 'burbs. I remember being quite excited when the site launched. They were really ahead of their time, and I have to say, they've came a long way since then and they've also done a tremendous job of staying competitive. The new content is high quality and hot as ever. A great investment for fans of the amateur genre. Particularly if you're fond of English accents.
