Summary
Sandra Shine Live, if you hadn’t already gathered, is the official website for Sandra Shine, the delectable porn goddess! Packed with features for her devoted followers, it’s definitely one to check out if you’re a fan, and thanks to an increase in content over the last couple of years, even if you’re not an avid Sandra devotee, there’s plenty of beautifully shot porn to see here too. Overall, we loved this site when we reviewed it back in 2006, so what other improvements have been made? Read on, my friends...

General
The site design hasn’t really changed since 2006, which is a good thing - it looks slick, sexy and professional, with straightforward navigation and a logical layout. There’s a fair amount of adult content, obviously all featuring Sandra, which forms the main basis of the site - when we reviewed it before, it was really one for fans only, but there’s now enough porn to keep the casual browser very much occupied! Sandra still updates her diary every couple of days, so you can check out what she’s been up to, and she posts photo and video content from her various outings and holidays - there are also backstage galleries from all of her shoots.

All of the above features can be accessed via the site’s navigation bar, and on the homepage there are also wallpapers, updates, and links to her store, where you can buy clothing worn by her and other models, signed items, toys, and even direct your own custom video! For a nominal 400 Euros (about $577), who wouldn’t want a nubile porn starlet pandering to their every whim, I ask you?

Content
As already mentioned, the amount of content has increased since we last reviewed the site. There are thousands more photos, and although the number of videos has also increased, I was slightly disappointed at their number - there’s roughly been one 18 minute video update every 2 weeks since 2006, which is still not on a par with many other big sites out there. Still, the quality of the content, photo and video, cannot be faulted, and there is more than enough there to keep you going for a while!

Sandra’s content is all either solo or girl/girl, so still not one for those of you solely looking for hardcore entertainment - however, there is a 3 site membership option, which gives you access to 2 other sites that do contain some high quality hardcore content, so it’s not the end of the world! The other girls that feature with Sandra in her shoots and movies are also absolutely gorgeous, which should go further to soften the blow a little bit... She’s collaborated with some top names, including Peaches, Eve Angel, Bambi and Katalin Kiraly to name but a few, and promises that all the content you’ll find here is exclusive to her sites, so you shouldn’t have seen it anywhere else!

Videos
There are 68 videos on Sandra Shine Live at the moment, which is pretty good, but hardly mind blowing. Their quality, however, is - the video clarity and playback is excellent, and everything is beautifully shot. They are only available in Quicktime, which might be a problem for some - it is a shame that there still isn’t another option; however, if you have a decent broadband connection, the download speed is likely to excite you greatly (although at this point in the process, the anticipation of naked Sandra-ness would probably mean you’d blow your top at the sight of an uncovered table leg). It took me less than five minutes to download an 18 minute HD movie as a zip file, which is brilliant - in other formats I’d usually be waiting for at least an hour, often much more. This does somewhat make up for the fact that there is only one preview thumb for each set, and that you can only download the movies in full - although it is still a little disappointing that these features haven’t been implemented since our last review.

Pictures
The amount of photos on offer here is much improved; with almost 12,000 piccies to browse through you’re likely to be able to keep your appendages amused for quite some time, you’ll be pleased to hear. Again, the quality is excellent, and Sandra looks positively edible in practically every shot! Sadly, 2 years on and there is still only one preview thumb on offer, and you need to download the file as a zip before you really know what you’re getting. At the very least, there should be an online gallery, and ideally a slideshow feature. That said, the files do download in a matter of seconds, and you can always start a slideshow in your own picture viewer if you so wish!

Updates
The update calendar is a bit confusing, but it looks like there is a video added every 2-3 weeks, and a photo set added every week in between. Sandra updates her diary with news and photos every few days, and backstage and bonus content is added regularly.
