Renewals*** Sticky *** After a few months of everything working correctly, I've just been informed by a member that his renewal hasn't gone through correctly. I've fixed his access manually, later today I will go through and check everyone. I knew it was too good to last! Update: EVERY SINGLE RENEWAL has failed this month. I have complained to Zombaio, this really is outrageous. If you lose access, don't create a new Zombaio account, as you will be charged twice (by them, not me). Just contact me, and I will renew you manually as soon as I can.
Stop Age Verification*** Sticky *** This may not be the place for politics, but... Our stupid, cretinous, conservative government has passed a law mandating age verification for all adult sites. See Here: Stop Age Verification. All in the name of "protecting children". Of course, it will do nothing of the sort. However, if implemented in its current form, it will make it completely uneconomic for small independent sites such as this to allow access from the UK (where about 1/2 the members come from). Of course, the more computer literate of you can get around it with a vpn (if you don't know how to do this, ask one of the children who are supposed to be "protected" by this stupidity. They all know!) Anyway, it may still be possible to block this, or at least reduce the worst effects. Please visit Stop Age Verification. There is a stack of advice there. Write to your MP and to the BBFC. I have! Update: I had a very interesting, and obviously personally written, reply from my MP (if she wasn't a conservative I'd vote for her!), she really seemed to take notice of the points I raised, and has passed them on to her colleagues and to the committee in charge. I'm not saying it will do any good, but it can't do any harm.
Now Here's A Pretty Girl22nd January 2019 14:51 Here's Cadef. I shot her yesterday, briefly. Like all latin americans, she was late (they call being on time "hora ingles", and find the idea quite amusing), so it was getting dark. I will try to fit her in again before I leave :)
Travelling Again8th January 2019 14:20 I'm off to Lima again, this time for 3 weeks :)) I have a week in Brazil, and when in Lima I will hopefully get 3 shoots in, including 2 new models. I'm taking the laptop that updates the site with me, but updates will be at funny times while I'm away :)
Happy Christmas22nd December 2018 20:19 A bit early, but having just donated £100 to the "Buy Your Local Emergency Plumber Another Ferrari Fund" for doing 5 minutes work, I'm off to Belgrade tomorrow morning. As usual, I've put up the next weeks updates early.
On To Something New21st December 2018 19:16 You may be thinking I don't seem to do a lot of work, and you'd be right :) But, from now on, I won't be doing any work at all! As of today, I have retired. For the next few months I will be travelling a lot, and not shooting much. Never fear, there is a shedload of material to publish... and when I return in the spring I will probably shoot more than ever! In the meantime, I've got to get used to the idea of spending my investments rather than adding to them!
A Very Classy Lady10th December 2018 16:20 There are a lot of models available in London, but they aren't the most ethnically diverse bunch. I find what I can, and look at Alishaa! I just had a shoot with her, she'll be back :)
A New Take On Piracy21st November 2018 19:06 I just bought a new laptop for photoshopping, as the old one I use for maintaining the site is getting flakey... So, it arrived in the post and I promptly installed photoshop on it. I disabled the license on the old machine, and when I tried to add it to the new one it had been revoked! 3 hours of grief on the help line to Adobe later... it turns out I had bought it from an illegal reseller! I've had it 5 years, so it worked out at £5 a month which is 1/2 what it costs to rent these days (they no longer sell lifetime licenses, because of all the piracy!). Now I have to go onto the rental plan. The good news is that the new version of photoshop is better than the old one I had - the spot healing tool is a revelation :) Windows 10, on the other hand... what a pile of shite!
A Weekend In A Dungeon23rd October 2018 18:59 Well, not exclusively! Haphazard Kittie again, Amelie Dot (who I've shot before but not released yet), and 2 lovely new latvian girls Casey & Nata Ocean. And some fetish sets for you :)
Nearly Sorted12th October 2018 11:11 I've been very busy with the house move, and not been doing much other than keeping the site going for a while. We're nearly sorted! Just waiting for a new bookcase to arrive today, and the curtains in about 3 weeks... Of course, now I am flat on my back with the worst cold in history, so I'm not doing anything at all :(
A Whole Lot To Do6th September 2018 19:16 Off to Greece tomorrow, then Peru next weekend, and we've finally fixed my house moving date for 2 days after I get back from Peru! I have 4 days in the country to do what you normally have 2 weeks to do! So... I'll be putting everything up good and early to save time :)
