I have been a continuous subscriber to 21st Sextury since 2009. It was one of the best sites around. Just 10 bucks a month and always a lot of good new material whenever I logged on.
So looking at the last 6 months or so I can just say: "What the heck happened?"
This site has gone completely sideways:
* First there was the godawful new design. The old design was simple, clean and efficient. The new one is bloated, buggy, annoying and a general design disaster.
* Then there was the video formats: no more WMV videos. I was told it was "obsolete". Maybe so, but that is what works best for me and is what I prefer as a customer.
Still, I could live with the design horror and the technical deficiencies if the material was still good. But not so:
* The missing photosets. Since 2010 or so there had always reliably been hi res photos with each set, now it seems mostly hit and miss.
* The photography quality itself has deteriorated greatly. Photos used to be super sharp, good lighting and color contrast, etc. Highly professional stuff, some of the best around. What do we have now? Blurry and washed out looking pictures seems to be the new norm.
* Hi res pictures when they do exist at all look like basic blownups of the low res stuff, sometimes you can even see the scaling artifacts.
What the hell is all this? Can't they or won't they invest enough in staff and equipment to keep the quality up?
I will be dropping my subscription if this nonsense doesn't change soon. Never mind the 10 bucks, it simply is not worth my time to put up with the technical hassles and mediocre quality.
How did this site ever get ranked at the top of it's niche?
In defense of the review, all of the facts provided were absolutely accurate, including the warning the scenes were censored. I gave it a shot to see why it was considered a niche leader, and came away grateful for the discount so at least I did not loose more.
What exactly is the point of censored porn? You would be better off watching network tv.
There are several Asian/Japan sites that are not censored, making this site a very low relative value.
The review facts were very accurate, but this site censored site should not be rated higher than a "0" no matter how frequent the censored updates are.
I joined this site today using the trial membership. The TBP page lists the trial as being full access and that was confirmed in March 2013. There has been a change at the site and the trial membership now only allows access to five videos of your choice. Also, these are only available through streaming.
I posted a not on the TBP page too so they may be able to verify this.
Just wanted to quickly share my experience with the Metart Network's customer support.
I had read in the forum that after joining one site , you can join any other for $10 recurring. I didn't know that this offer stands only for an hour and is given by an automatic link, which after an hour expires. After that, it's $20 recurring.
Now, I don't have a credit card, I use a debit VISA card, which I use only for online shopping, so I rarely keep any money on it, which means I have to manually put money in, whenever I want to purchase something. I had $20 in, so I got SexArt, with the intention next day to try TLE, Ninn,Randall, at such a great price.
To my surprise, I found that this offer would be valid for only an hour (it was the evening here, couldn't make any deposit). So I'm emailing their support to tell them what happened.
Not only they were polite and responded fast, they REFUNDED my initial purchase, completely cancelled my membership, so I could rejoin next day from start and get the discounts for all the sites I wanted.
This kind of customer service is awesome,hard to find I think in the adult websites industry, and creates loyal customers. Qudos to them.
The ONLY thing I would like to see from them support-wise, is a live chat, which is much faster than email exchanging, although as far as e-mailing goes, they were very fast with their responses. Over 13 emails exchanged in 24 hours.
am I the only one who is thinking site is going to worse? this site used to be my favorite but over the course of last year, I saw that quality is going down. Not only number of anal scenes decreased but also quality of the girls doing them.
they use some American porn stars but only for soft content same for the good looking east European ones. only anal content is coming from really ugly girls. what happened to anal teen angels?
don't think I will renew when my membership expires :(
I usually never read user comments for the models on adult web sites but for some reason I started to read the ones on the 21 network because an awfully ignorant comment caught my eye one day. It is to be expected to read immature comments like "I'd like to jizz all over her tits" and stuff like that, but I found TONS of comments that are degrading the models, calling them ugly, whores, and stuff I'd rather not say. One comment read "look at this filthy whore, her breath reeks," another one read "typical fat ass american trash, what a whore" another one read "this bitch is so ugly it's a miracle they found a guy to do her," and I can go on and on. It simply blows my mind that a professional site like this doesn't have a moderator to delete the ignorant comments. How would these models feel if they happened to read those comments? Not very good. Makes the site seem careless to me, like they don't care about their models. I don't know why this bothers me so much but it does.
I noticed that in the picture set for each video there's WAY more cum than what they guy actually shot. Are the pictures touched up? A perfect example is Abbie from Anal Teen Angels (12/25/2011) In the picture set she has thick gooey cum piled on her pussy like whip cream on a sundae but in the video 90% of the cum ran down her side and there was hardly anything on her pussy. I noticed this countless times on every site on the network.
That as soon as I cancel my membership the server is now super S-L-O-W. 100 mbs per second internet speed but it's taking 6 minutes to dl a 180MB clip, which was taking 15-20 seconds before? Strange...
21Sextury has the best hardcore image resolution which is great for my 4k ultra high defintion 3820x2160 monitor that I have come across in an adult website, but I just wish they would include 10 times more images like about 1000 images per session. It may not be possible since it will take up a lot more size.
I know Brazzers offer about 1000 2460x1600 images per scene or session, but the quality is lower, so there is a compromise between quality and quantity.
@webmaster any change the website will offer more images per session?
There is no doubt that the 21sextury network is one of the best site on the web. However, when it comes to navigation it is totally a mess. Many broken links. Filtering the content is problematic. More importqnt is you cannot navigate hq content in your browser. If you want to see hq photos from a photo gallery of a model, you have to download ALL the hq pics in zip format. Most of the time I dont want to see all the photos but I just want to see some of them. This is very frustrating. Other than these problems site is great. Lastly, there is no need to ask about anything in the customer area because they wont answer you.
I can't spot a way to track when a new video is added for any of my favorites on this website. Has anyone figured out how to spot when a new video comes out for a star you're following? That is, without logging in every day to check the new videos.
Some sites have poor preview pages, that show very little of what the site offers.
21sextury has a great preview pages.
The thumbnails show clearly what the models look like.
You have some really nice-looking models.
The videos look professionally shot.
You get to see short samples of the videos.
Reading the PU site reviews, scores range from 80s to 90s.
This is not directly in my comfort zone, as far as the type of sex action. I like a slower approach to sex. The sample videos I saw are like a bucking bronco at a rodeo.
Bu with a first month offer of $9.95, and a ton of gorgeous models, it's worth a try.
So I will sign up tomorrow.
OK. I signed up at 21sextury.
For some reason, the signup page rejected my Mastercard credit card 4 times.
I then tried a Visa card, and the signup page accepted that card.
The biller is Epoch.
After accepting my registration, I got a URL page that said, in part:
The first step of your purchase was successful.
Soon you'll receive a mail to your registered email address. Please click on the link you'll find inside the mail to finalize your registration.

I checked my email, and found 2 emails from Epoch or 21Sextury.
One email said:

But some PU members have wondered what are the exact details in how you get access to all the sites in the network.
The web master replied that he would post details on how the membership works, to get total access. But that hasn't happened yet, that I could find.
From the sign-up page to 18 Only Girls, you see the following plans:
$0.97/day, 18OnlyGirls.Com Recurring 30 Days Membership & bonus access to 11 sites.
$0.67/day, 18OnlyGirls.Com Recurring 5 Months Membership & bonus access to 11 sites.
This is a 5 month, recurring membership.
$1.33/day 18OnlyGirls.Com Non-Recurring 30 Days Membership & bonus access to 11 sites.
The above choices are slightly different from the way the webmaster explained it before.
He said a while back, that if you join one of the sites, and re-new your membership, you would then have access to all the sites in the network (he didn't specify how long you would have to be a member before you gained access to all the sites).
The Wow Porn sign-up page has the same three plans listed above, but they only mention membership/access to the Wow Porn site. I assume that is because the site has a problem with English, and that they are not specifying the access to the other sites in the network because they don't realize the omission.
The site navigation has become a complete joke. If you go to a models page it lists her scenes in a completely random order. It used to always be in chronological order, but not anymore. For a model like Sandy with a few hundred scenes, it's impossible to find anything specific if you're looking for newer stuff. There are no sort options whatsoever. I submitted this issue at least a week ago, never heard anything.
Furthermore technical support is non-existent as has ALWAYS been the case. Sure you can submit problems like this but you're just wasting your time as no one will ever answer them. Their link for checking submitted problems is a fake and just sends you to the site homepage. As such I suspect the problem submissions page doesn't actually submit problems either. Their email address is worthless as they don't reply. It most likely goes to a mailbox no one ever checks.
Simply put as has always been the case they don't care one bit about customer support. However, at least in the past you could still find what you were looking for, now with content displayed randomly, in no specific order, you can't even do that for models with more than a small number of scenes.
Just logged in today and now I'm finding that when I click on a scene page the damn videos start streaming automatically. It's never done this before so I'm assuming this is another so called upgrade or improvement to the navigation?
21Sextury has released a new "network" called 21Naturals. Seems to follow PassionHD and similar in white light, low contrast style with more couples themed action. Why it had to be another package entirely and not just a site, beats me.
Besides TBP not doing business with this company, I can say I won't be anymore. I joined it from an email promo and had to jump through hoops to cancel. I really don't remember being a past member, but that's what the promo email said. If I was a past member I hadn't kept any of their content and can say with confidence that I probably won't keep more than 4-5 scenes max from this recent join.
Just wanted to see what a site with "streaming only" has to offer and cannot connect to their server, I tried their sister sites and all of them appear to be down! I wouldn't be terribly upset if they stayed down because no price is low enough for me to ever subscribe to a site that does not allow downloads.
