Summary
Being well known in the on-line adult world, Wetlands was bound to impress, but having had a good look round, itís even better than I thought it would be. Not only is the amount of material to get you off here outstanding but also the member participation is off the scale. Wetlands deservedly gets the accolade it claims of no.1 real amateur website on the internet today.

General
If you've been surfing porn sites for some time, Wetlands is a name that must be familiar, even if you havenít had a chance to see what it is all about. Wetlands is much more than just a website, it's actually a web community. This could be viewed as the King of Amateur Porn as thereís: 15 gigs of exclusive pictures; 72 gigs of video; personal ads; message boards; chat rooms; and access to 100 websites run by amateurs in their "webpartners" program. Member participation can be the key to a great members site as you're not then relying on the kinks of the webmaster to fulfil your fantasy. And it seems to me a lot of members are taking part here and in doing so have some real fun for their money!

Content
Actually I am at a loss where to start, which is a pleasant experience. The memberís area is neatly subdivided into sections, but there are so many of them, I shall have to summarise.

Firstly, you have main categories, including pictures, video and then other. As we'll cover the first two sections below, let me tell you what's in store in a bit of the other. Picture Chat is a new feature where members can chat in real time and also post their pictures for all to see. Nice idea!

The Story archives features memberís submitted stories. Wetmates is a matchmaking section, which will match you up with girls/guys in your area who are up for some adult fun. There is also a picpost, a vote for your fave wife competition, greeting cards, personals boards, etc etc.

Wetlands must have a lot of members, as participation in these sections is high, which is the only way a site like this can work. Once I got stuck in here, I found I was spending hours looking through posts, unfortunately time was against me as I had to get this review done, but you bet I am going back tonight to continue!

Video Section
This is split up into live cam feeds which include chat areas similar to Microsoft NetMeeting chats with other members online and downloadable video, much of it exclusive to Wetlands, which also incorporates a lot of video submitted by members.

The main video area is fully searchable, and results such as threesomes gave around 35 videos to choose from, so I am guessing there must be several hundred if not a thousand videos to choose from here. The videos do vary in size and quality but given these were amateur videos and knowing this was real life was more of a turn on then some staged studio set with two models going at it like rabbits. There were several web cam feeds online when we reviewed, which was noon GMT, a time when most of the US is happily asleep, so Iíd guess if I were using the cams late at night the choice would be even better. Donít get me wrong, I'm not complaining at all, the active cams had some very attractive females on-line. Wetlands have even gone to the lengths of providing web cam archives, featuring the best of past cams. All I can say is there are 1000's of cams archived here, you could spend days going through them, and there are some real hotties to be found.

Picture Galleries
The picture section is once again split into archives of amateurs, couples, lesbians, young wives, husbands etc. Being an amateur site, the picture quality varies enormously, but I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised at the quality of many of the shots. They were nice large pictures, many very cute girls, and a lot of action going on. The lesbian section was particularly impressive, but that may be because of my thing for lots of naked girls together (allegedly).

Updates
Itís nigh on impossible to put a timescale here, many sections are getting updated day in, day out, by members submitted material. Needless to say, being a community project, the amount of new material is going to surpass even the most heavily updated pay sites.
