    ohhh if that was Mystery shoot number 14... appears Pinky has missed a number... my reference was mystery shoot number 10... In saying that.. I was being lazy and going purely off the "section" list... It appears this is another for the "Content Administration - AKA Kylie gets to pester the post production team" thread... haha Go... Kylie....

    Thanks Timbo...

    Looks like this thread is looked at from time to time as I have just noticed that the old G/B section has been renamed "Girls and their boys" YAY... much better, thanks

    Given my renewed confidence I have another "question" comment on something I have just noticed....

    Editors Choice or "Best of..." which I'm sure I have mentioned before I'm not a fan of that name (surprise/surprise) it is correctly the Editors Choice... this does not make them the "best of" a theme.. anyway not my comment/question at this time...
    I Notice that the raves say.... "material selected by our Editors based on a popular tag or theme, from our 11 year archive." My calculations have it at a 13 year archive now... this maybe need looking at... also what I first notice, to actually read on and see the time gap" was the lasted puffy nipples one... says... "ideo material selected by our Editors based on a popular tag or theme, from our 11 year archive" I was wondering what a "ideo" was and was just about to Google it (shame... I know) when I realized its missing it's V for Video... maybe if someone can fix these minor errors it would be good.

    Thanks....

    I do not prefer 'Video Masturbation' but rather the title 'Intimate Moments.' In my most humble and honest opinion. I wonder why the heck that got changed anyways since 'Intimate Moments' has such a nicer ring to it.

    Agreed.....

    Also noticed that Analyn last shoot is still not appearing in the "Video's of myself at home" which is also a strange section title as it includes Image sets... well in 2 of the 4 official ones... 3 of 5 if you include Analyn.

    Be interesting to find out the plan behind all the name changes including the change to the web addies... Last I read (years ago) they were trying to make them simple and follow a pattern... seems to have been expanded but no real simple pattern...
    I'm not explaining myself very well so... example
    Before.... http://www.abbywinters.com/nude_girls/jade_s
    Now.... http://www.abbywinters.com/nude_girl...+skin/jade_s_6

    Thanks

    Pinky (again)

    I think that they said that they do it to improve the "search engine optimization".
    The website looks a lot less classy with all these changes. But I guess that they prefer to please potential customers than current ones...

    I don't understand how it would appeal to potential customers if the site would for some reason look less-classy and in some instances you are right, in some aspects the site's homepage does look a bit less classy in regards to some of the wording is used on there.

    What drew me to the site and what finally solde me completely on the concept of the site is that it was at the time being presented in a way that answered my queries about naturally beautiful ladies and that, my friends, was the concept that really made AW stand out in front of the other Adult Entertainment websites out there. That was the AW difference that helped AW win the hearts of so many subscribers and it also helped win AW the award as being the best on the 'Net recently. Why AW would ever want to make a departure from that status in beyond me.

    Hi Frankie

    I love your site, love the beautiful women. One thing about the direction you've been headed in. I don't like to watch men. If I wanted straight porn I would be someplace else. Please reconsider the amount of straight sex you are putting up, it's a turn off to me.

    Your not alone rocker... that is way they have added the "no penises option" as discussed here.

    Unfortunately for you, me and a number of others... but fortunately for many many others it does appear to be here to stay.

    As long as they keep it sparing and not let the site become over-run with it I can cope with it. But I'm with you guys, in that I mainly enjoy the site because of the naturally beautiful ladies who share in their lives with us here.

    Alyssa R has the title "Nude Girl: porn star" on her model page.
    She seems to be the only one. It looks strange...

    Jackson would be pleased if he saw that.
    I must say that I do like it... So who gets to go through the back catalogue and up date the others??

    Question...... Is Rhyss still working at AWHQ??? He has not posted on the site since Feb...
    If not or even if he is... Is it still worth us still posting questions on this thread?? As no one has answered any for some time.

    Thanks

    It's always worth posting your questions! Even if you're not getting a reply right away, you're promoting discussion, and maybe someone other than the CD can help too!

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry for my absence on this thread. The change in names of URL and site sections are designed to clarify our content for users who dont know abbywinters specific terms and to increase SEO.

    Also I need to inform you guys of my resignation from abbywinters.com as creative director. My last day will be on the 31st May and from then Garion will be taking of some of the creative director duties and others will be given to the shooters.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of this role and I hope that I have brought some positive changes and exciting content to the site. It is a wonderful website and a great place to work and I will definitely miss it.

    I hope you all continue to enjoy it and thanks for all the passionate discussions.

    Rhyss

    My thoughts for you

    Garion, I'm not sure exactly what you're asking, as I said several things in the passage you quoted. But if you're asking why I said that the recruitment policy used to be amateurs only but it's not any more, the answer is what I said earlier in my post

    "Some of the girls are real amateurs, but certainly not all of them, and very, very few of them have never done any nude modelling before. We have had full-scale hardcore professionals, girls who have decided to make a career in porn and come to Abby Winters for their first steps into that world, as well as girls who are technically amateurs (in the sense that nude modelling is not their only occupation) but who are very highly experienced."



    Just as examples, the last two new models have been Kimberley, aka Jodi Taylor, professional hardcore porn model, and Sofia M, aka Sofia Matthews, who describes herself as "semi-professional" and who lists nineteen adult and fetish sites on which she appeared before her AW shoot: http://www.adultindustryresources.co...sofia-matthews

    And both those models were presented as first timers: Kimberley expressly said so, and the raves for Sofia M strongly implied it using the words "debut shoot" for her stills set and speaking about her nervousness in front of the camera for the video.

    So that's why I say that this site is no longer the sort of amateur site it was in Australia, nothing like it, in fact.
    I find this thread interesting to read as I had never thought of me as 'highly experienced' model or even a model. I am more your average girl with an office job who enjoys being photographed nude for men to enjoy viewing.

    In order to enjoy doing this, I found it best to have a profile on photography sites in order to network and find the right type of people to shoot with. To join these sites it is required all members register their level of shooting meaning whether this is your main form of income which is classed as 'Professional' or whether you only earn part of your income from shoots which is known as 'Semi-professional' or if you earn none of your income from shoots then it is classed as 'Amateur'. This is the same for make-up artists and photographers as well.

    If you think about it I haven't really shot very much seeing as those 19 sites are spread over 3 years. Just as and when I can fit them in around my day job. But as fees are agreed for shoots, my status is classed as semi-professional. That classification has absolutely nothing to do with experience and on portfolio sites your experience is displayed separately to your status such as 'No experience' or A little experience' or 'Experienced' or 'Very experienced'.

    I first got in front of a camera as a last minute extra model for my friend who runs art nude studio lighting workshops for photographers and which is so very different to a shoot with AW. I then decided to try something quite different from art nude poses by working on mature sites as an amateur girl and found I loved teasing the camera. But again those shoots are nothing as tasteful as AW shoots. I truly love to try new experiences because working in an office is so not a life experience for me. And so when abbywinters offered me a shoot as a mature female for their site where I could be myself and completely au naturale, I relished the opportunity. And even though I have been on camera before I certainly hadn't just been told to be myself and that was a new and pretty nervous 1st time for me. As was having orgasms with Daisy and Lewa for our DIMs - I have never had an orgasm in front of another girl or watched another girl have one - not right bang in front of me at any rate.

    So AW members you really do have really down to earth 1st time shoot material here from me and I really am just a frisky office girl that likes to shoot naked when she can. I guess I was a little miffed when I read this post first of, to think that I could be thought of otherwise - especially if you've watched me. Then you would know I am just who I am - myself.

    But I thought well the least I could do is come in and join the thread and put my thoughts down and at least clarify what 'semi-professional' means. It doesn't mean I am a highly experienced model at any rate.

    Neither did I take offence at being classed as that and I am glad that I fit the AW core criteria for natural, everyday girls as that is very ME!

    Long may you enjoy my naturalness x

    Don't want to get into the argument on whether a model is amateur enough for this site,what I will say is Kimberley's shoots were great and a pretty girl like that is welcome on this site..imho

    I think that the problem isn't really about "is the model an amateur or not?".
    It's just that AW often tries to make the models look more amateur than they are (not talking about other adult works, removing piercings, hiding tattoos).
    For me, it makes the website less real because we can't really trust what we are told.

    It seems like 90% of people DO NOT LIKE piercings, so even though I normally wear them, I'd rather ALL people enjoy my shoots rather than seeing my piercings and thinking they're icky. I don't think this is faking or trying to deceive people. Heck, I take my piercings out when I go to visit my Gran because I don't want to spend the majority of our visit with her looking at me sadly and asking why I've "done that to your beautiful face?" The same goes if I was going for a job interview and I had tattoos I would hide them, then when working there I would be careful to hide the tattoos to prevent people from being offended. If people don't like something that you like to do, there's nothing wrong with choosing to take the easier route and just keeping it out of their face. You don't HAVE to, but sometimes it makes everything smoother.

    Curiously, how sexy do you think it would be for a model to talk about her other shoots? Personally, I don't think a person is defined by what they've done in the past and if I only get about 30 minutes to hear about her life, I wanna hear about her first sexual experience, first kiss, favourite position, favourite foods, what she does on the weekends, and how she defines herself. If there was a model who really defined herself by the previous shoots she'd done, then I guess that would be interesting to listen to, but otherwise I'm not that interested, personally.

    I'm not even a fan of piercings or tattoos.
    I just think that once a girl has chosen to have some, it has become part of her personality.
    (look at Shaminee, Blaire or Joannie).
    On some shoots, we guess that the girl removes her piercings just for the AW shoot. It doesn't look natural.

    Deciding to work in the adult work is a big choice for a girl.
    I'd like to know why she decides to do it, what she want/don't want to do, what's her plans for the future...
    I don't think that it's a good idea to avoid all those questions to make the girl look like a first timer.
