Intrigued by the reviews, I took a look at the demo clip (which is unusually long and hires). The game idea is cool, but the models look like pros (sex is boring to them) and there seemed to be no arousal, plus too much emphasis on anal, double penetration, etc. Tho it has very little content, I like DareRing much better, where the game participants seem genuinely excited by the uncertanties in the game, reacted with real personalities (not plastic ones), were a little scared sometimes, a little embarrassed, and where some people really got off.
They've had for years the option to create custom scenes but they were only visible in-game. Their latest newsletter, though, says it's now possible to encode videos in standard codecs (MPEG, Divx, etc) so you can play them in external players and also edit with standard video-editing software. The resolution seems to be 800x600.
Looks like they keep solving the issues I had with the software when I was a member; last year they created Gamerotica user community and now this. Hope next year they do something about the stories and make them less dull.
Unfortunately, they've gone to the dark side of regional pricing: 30 EUR a month. Ouch.
The site is really-really great! I signed up and it looks like some fucking reality show just like darering did but with new games, new people and more fun!
They also giving free access to mydrfeelgood.com which is about sex therapist in florida.
I have been a member of this site off and on since it was launched. To say this site was 'niche' would be putting it mildly, but let's face it, it does what it says on the tin, and I don't think anybody can claim to have been misled if they join!
I was a little uncertain about the increased trend in video content but I have to say I am now a total convert. As a Brit myself I am particularly pleased to see (apparently) British models being used (no offence to my US/European cousins), this I feel Ed should exploit a little. The girls are natural and really get into the gist of what the site is all about; most appear to be amateur which I think helps (although Cate Harrington appears in some content - no bad thing though as she is very hot!); they also wear their own clothes with occasional forays into fancy dress. The girls come in all shapes and sizes too. (my current favourite being Natalie more more more of her please!)
I am also impressed with the openness that the site owner (Ed) practices, running two web forums both for paying subscribers and those who aren't members - this is a very useful dynamic and Ed is careful to point out that it is an opportunity to influence future material. He is also scrupulously open on these forums about the site and always tries to meet criticism head on; this is a bus on which some of the big hitters in the industry have yet to embark.
The website seems far more stable than it was two or three years ago, with occasional crises over running out of update content long in the past.
I have two minute criticisms of the site:
- there is no set day of the week for updates, with new material appearing sometimes every 24 hours and sometimes after 5 days, that said you will always get an answer on the two forums if you chase Ed about a perceived overdue update!
- a large proportion (but by no means not all) of the 'Bonus' material actually appeared on Ed's other now static website "A Measure of Curiosity" (www.amoc.com), so if you're an old customer of that site expect to see some familiar content. Again Ed has made a convincing defence of this practice and of course the amount of this older content is finite.
So then - if you like watching attractive girls playing and losing stripping games then this site is for you - if you don't, it isn't!
I don't want to make too much of an accusation yet, as the dust hasn't quite settled yet, but potential buyers probably need to watch out for this site (and others in the network). I joined up yesterday using the "free 2-day trial" option that rebills at $39.95. I noticed that there were 2 boxes to uncheck on the signup form, just like TBP reports in the details. I made sure to uncheck both before signing up. The terms & conditions (which I read) indicated that I would be subject to the $39.95 fee if I did not cancel prior to the end of my trial. No other charges should have been made.
After I placed the order, I got my use out of the sites (which were quite disappointingly small) and determined it was not worth the $39.95 to me, so I went to the cancel form (they don't use CCBill - red flag!) and noticed I had been signed up for an additional free trial (to accessdvdsnow.com) that would have also rebilled at $39.95 had I not cancelled it. Thankfully - I had the option to cancel both trials, so I did. A couple of hours ago, I got a call from my credit card company's fraud department asking me to verify whether 4 separate charges (I think all were $39.95) were authorized by me. I said they were not, so my card was of course reported compromised and thus I will have to have it reissued.
Obviously - I can't recommend that anyone sign up for these sites right now. There's obviously something shady going on if my card was charged for almost $140 when it should have been hit with only a single $39.95 authorization. Stay away for now - I will update if I figure out what is really going on.
I got a promo email from them today announcing they have launched a new free site by the name Gamerotica. There's a message board and sections where users can share the content they've generated with this company's games: models, custom movies, screen shots, etc. The only games that have this option are 3D Sex Villa 2 (3D Sex Games), Hentai 3D 2 and 3D Gay Villa 2. Why not 3D Lesbian?
If you have a current game account for any of those sites, you have to link it to a new Gamerotica account in order to access the shared content. Looks complicated and a BETA in capital letters: lots of things were not working. Don't bother creating one if you don't have a current membership: no access without them.
As I said in my 09-28-08 review and 06-25-08 comment, I felt that being able to share user generated content and building a community around this software were a must so I was excited to see it happen. My sudden desire to join back the site faded pretty fast as I got tangled in the account creation process. Hope they polish the product and get out of beta soon.
According to this news article some material in hentai key and also adult empire and other sites may contain illegal material, Best Porn and Porn Users may need to contact ASACP and these sites if possible and also change the reviews on these sites warning about these sites. I saw this article from World Sex News which is mentioned/linked from Best Porn. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28319199/
I noticed that the only price listed was the trial price

Just joined Hentai Key. However, there are serious login issues with the site. While it recognizes my username and password, it does not recognize its own "Security Key" or CAPTCHA. Filed a support ticket as the site advises, but so far, tech support has been unresponsive. We'll see how they respond before I decide what to do.
UPDATE: Tech support contacted me via e-mail with some suggestions. The one that worked was switching from Firefox 3.0.1 to IE7. While I don't like using IE7, at least it allowed me to log in. A more detailed review to come.
The site has many interesting photo sets, but I prefer videos.The site does have a small number of videos that can be purchased separately and not part of membership. I ordered all they had and it was about half a DVD for about $9. The videos are sexy clips of girls playing games and stripping to full nudity and some of just stripping without any game. The nudity is not explicit, but erotic just the same. The models were just ok and most were too thin for my taste. There is also a sister website ameasureofcuriosity, but I could not find it again as it may have closed. Ialso bought their videos. Same price same quantity. The two sites are ok, but not much better than average.
I haven't used this site lately, but elsewhere on PU there was a request for feedback. I can't give a honest review because its been 8 months.
My past experience was no support response over a one month try.
And areas of the site looked to not have been updated in along time. My experience was that site at that time was not usable.
But that may have changed. Taking a look the front page looks the same as it did in November 2007.
But please make your own determination to join.
For 32.95 USD/22.22 EUR, you can get 90 days of 3D Sex Villa 2 (their main product); renews at the same price recurring every 90 days. Plus, 30 days free access (renews at regular price) to another of their sites (3D Gay Villa or Hentai Park). It is also possible to do any combination with the 3 products (ex: Hentai-90, Sex Villa-30).
Offer lasts until June 28th 2008. You have to click on the half-off sale on top of the home page.
I had a trial subscription some months ago and I was really impressed with the end result. There were some minor bugs and annoyances and had some trouble understanding the concept of the game but the high resolution animations you get are quite spectacular and, reading the reviews of similar products here, they probably have the best sex simulator in the market.
What annoyed me the most was that the scenes you film aren't playable outside the program. You can record in AVI the scenes you direct but you only get to replay them in a tiny window inside their software. You can also take pictures which are viewable with any external software (PNG or JPEG, probably).
I also feel that it's a mistake on their part not to have some kind of community where members can share their findings. A simple message board where users could help each other getting started would probably reduce the amount of support emails they receive. Advanced users would also be able to share their latest directed scenes or pictures. Member retention would surely increase.
those sites are owneed by hentaiboss and hentaiboss dont own no license to any movie period, 100% stolen content.
I know for fact that hentaikey actually owns the license t over 200 episoded and pays yearly fees to the anime studios in japan,
in fact besided vod sites hentaikey is the only site that has legal weblicenses to hentai movies, so if yoo want to support someone that gives back that would be the best site.
plus they create 1000's of orignal images comics and games while all other sites dont do nothing but steal content, so figure you get what you pay for, and yes there is so much content it's impossible to license it all i guess but at least they make an effort besides just stealing like all other sites.
and HentaiKey also has a lot of their movies with no legal issue except this one on the site, It is on Hentai Movie Planet.
"Licensed Movie" means that a DVD company has bought the copyright of that individual movie so now the only way to view this movie is by buying the DVD from a licensed store. Unfortunately, for that reason we are now forced to remove the noted movie from our site. The licenses are not held for a lifetime, if the license owner does not renew his license then they risk losing it and we would be allowed to promote this movie once again. We are always checking for expired movie licenses in this regard.
Our site is not the only site affected by this as no other site on the net can legally offer these movies so don't bother trying to find them elsewhere. Instead, we have decided to show you the thumbs without the links to let you know that although we do have this movie we cannot add them due to the licensing laws. Our network, HentaiKey, holds many quality licensed movies, allowing us to promote them as an affiliate.
except Bondanime and Titanime and Lestai have these movies without no legal issues.
you would have to be a member of these sites all at once or separately to figure this weird legalism, in fact legalism is weird
I have always been intrigued by sites like this one that let you customize various features of performers, but until recently the graphics just weren't up to snuff. On initial inspection I'd have to say that it's still going to be awhile until a 3D image can turn me on enough to pay for it, but it does have some apparent advantages.
I must say that my interest was piqued while going through the tour since one of the things you can customize is the length of a perfromer's hair and anyone who has read my past comments (ok, perhaps more like rants) knows that I'm always searching desperately for sites featuring a girl with short hair.
Despite the ability to have short haired girls, I just don't think this one is for me, but would very much like to be convinced otherwise. I have seen some sites with customizable scenarios and real performers which look interesting, although there has to be a limit on how much you can do and I bet changing the girl's hairstyle isn't one of the options.
So, while we continue to wait for even better technology, if anyone has experiences with sites like this (or this specific site) I'd sure like to hear about them!
