The Black Alley is a high-quality Erotica site whose one and only focus is capturing some of the finest images and video available of Asian women. They boast a large stable of gorgeous models, and a highly experienced staff of photographers skilled individuals who had plenty of time to cut their teeth shooting these exotic hotties at Asian4You. They promise large, "razor sharp images" and "crystal clear video." Judging by the great looking images that grace the tour, I'm inclined to believe them.

[v]Impression(3.5)

Although I think the design of the members page is sharp and modern looking, and with the current setup on a lesser site, anyway navigation would ordinarily be a simple affair. But I'm not sure it's the best choice for such a large amount of content. In addition, a few areas are just downright confusing. Here's a great example. The main menu houses the following options: Updates, Models, A4Y Zone, Videos, and The V.I.P. Zone. Just as I was, you're probably thinking to yourself, "Hey, what about the pictures?" Well, strangely enough, you can only access them via the Models section. Personally, I don't see why they couldn't have just added a separate section for the photos altogether.

Another troubling thing I noticed was a message at the bottom of the page, informing users that there's a download cap. If you exceed the maximum limit, which is currently 2 gigabytes daily, you'll be banned from the site for a 24 hour period. To be fair, though, they warn you of this on the sign-up page, so I can't really fault them too much. Bandwidth certainly isn't cheap. On the bright side, the biggest video I recall downloading was around the 150 megabyte mark, so I guess you could download quite a few of them per day, cap or not. Speaking of which, downloads were lightning fast, just under a meg-per-second.

One really good thing I noticed, however, was how eager they are to help out the members. There are messages posted all over the place, most of which are designed in aiding the user in specific site functions. You have to admire an admin who wants to make things as user-friendly as possible. I'd only advise that he take it a step further and try incorporating some of these ideas into the overall layout.
Before I dive into the pictures and videos, I'd first like to take a few minutes to focus on the models. There are, as I write this, 169 of them(appropriate number, huh?) and they're all quite gorgeous. In fact, this is probably one of the finest, most varied selections of Asian models I've yet to encounter. Typically, on Asian-centric sites, you'll just see Japanese or Chinese girls on these sites, but I spotted a number of Thai and Korean babes, too.

I must warn you, The Black Alley has absolutely zero hardcore content. Most of the shoots I've seen tend to lean more toward the softer, more glamorous side of things. While the women certainly do get fully nude, even going as far as to play with the occasional toy or two, you're not going to be seeing any real "action" going on here, if you know what I mean. For the most part you can expect to see ladies posing on front of the camera, gently caressing their own bodies, eyeing the camera seductively, and, slowly and teasingly revealing themselves to you. I have to admit, they do a damn good job of it, too. It's almost like one of those L'Oreal commercials, only worth watching.

Videos come in the DiVX format, with both a low and high resolution option. While they look excellent and are obviously shot with a top-notch crew, I can't help but feel a little disappointed. The High Res option, for instance, has a surprisingly small resolution. So small, in fact, that the Low Res option isn't worth downloading. Perhaps they've did this to make it easier for users to get more scenes each day, in spite of their download cap. I don't like, though. It just doesn't jibe with the high-quality promises on the tour. There's no streaming option, either, but maybe that's a given considering the cap. Bummer.

The photo galleries are probably the best facet of the site. There are 3569 of them in total, and they each contain a minimum of 100 images each. The JPEGs are served up in your choice of either a large or extra large option, the latter of which has a massive width of 2,000 pixels. Those boys from Asian4You know what they're doing. These are right up there with the best erotica photography I've seen. All in all, it's top-notch stuff. My main complaint would be the lack of options. Sure, there's multiple resolutions, but there's no slide show or even a basic offer for downloading full galleries. If they could just add those in, I'd give the picture section a solid A+.

[v]Conclusion(4.4)

If you have a fondness for women of the Asian variety but no real interest in hardcore pornography, The Black Alley dream site. You'd be hard-pressed to find one with such a large amount of content or a more diversified model selection. I do wish they'd update their navigation a bit, and they simply must consider larger resolutions for their videos. Either way, this is still a top-notch Asian Erotica site. Probably one of the best. Highly recommended.
