"Amateur" is a term that's thrown around a lot in porn and it usually means that the models are not professionals. At Amateurs Do It not only are the models amateurs, but the videography has a homemade feel to it; in fact the site's tagline is: "Where amateurs do it with amateurs!" The models are a varied crew of fit Australians from 18-40. While the videos vary a great deal in quality and some of the interviews are way too long, this site is appealing and almost innocent in its own way.
The Amateurs Do It tour starts off the page with a long explicit preview video clip that serves as a pretty good introduction to this fairly large roster of amateurs. Scroll down the page and there are graphics and preview clips for ten recent videos. Page through the video inventory and there is a semi-explicit clip for every episode on the site! This is good news.
The design of Amateurs Do It is simple and straightforward, in an effort to reflect it's amateur models. The color palette is black and white - with lots of different fonts and large graphics. Getting around is simple. You can rate the scenes and save your favorites and there is a model index, The search function includes a keyword and an advanced search feature.
The Men and the Action
The almost 200 men of Amateurs Do It can't be pigeon-holed, though a big majority are white Aussies, so expect lots of uncut dicks and sexy Down Under accents. The age ranges from 18 to 40 and there is a variety of body types, physiques and body hair. The action covers all the basics and the men are usually really into the sex. In mid-2011 the site evolved from all-solo to a menu that includes duos and groups. About half the videos shot after that date are solo and half are hardcore duos, along with a few threesomes and groups.
There are text descriptions for every video on the site, and many of them start with the camera man interviewing the guy(s). Some of these interviews are much too long and ask simple or obvious questions (like "What color are your eyes?") At the same time, there's a natural and unforced quality about the whole presentation.
Overall the technical quality of the videos is average. For the most part the videos have good lighting and lots of angles and close-ups, though the camera moves around a lot with the videographer. Some videos have still camera pops and flashes during the shoot, a practice we thought had disappeared years ago.
There are 340 videos on the site, though some of them are actually one video divided into two or more parts. They typically run 20-25 minutes. The site is updated once a week with a new video and image set, but they sometimes fudge it, passing off Part 2 of a video as that week's update.
You can stream and download in MP4 format only. About 70% of the videos are HD with a top size of 1280x720 pixels and 5,000 kbps. The older one-third are standard definition 640x480 pixels, between 1,000 and 1,600 kbps.
Screens: Accessed by a smartphone or a tablet, the site will display in a mobile version.
Larger formats can be viewed on the TV screen.
Image and Other Content
There are image galleries for most of the videos and these are digital photos available in three different sizes - a nice touch. There are lots of pics in each set - at 200 to 300, perhaps too many that are similar. You can run them in slideshow or download the whole set, in your choice of size, in a zip file. Membership to Amateurs Do It also includes membership to its sister site, Wank Off World, which has a mass of downloadable content to enjoy. As well, there are 19 additional video feeds to choose from in the Bonus Sites section.
Amateurs Do It is still working out the difference between "amateur" and "amateurish". This shows in the quality of some of the videos and in the slightly clunky navigation and design. With that off our chest, the site, with its 340 episodes and the sister site Wank Off World included, is good value for for true amateur fans.
