Having been unceremoniously dropped by DDFProd (the expiration date on my credit card in the biller's records passed so they simply disabled my account rather than notify me that they needed a new date) I tried to sign up for a new membership using the PU/TBP deal shown as $29.95 per month.
Using the PU link to the site the monthly price is now $38.95.
I suggest that PU change the listing to reflect this increase. Better yet, if PU can encourage DDFProd to return to their original price of $29.95, that would be awesome.
Zoliboy (part of the 21Sextury Network) has not updated since March 11, 2010, now within the space of one month 3 updates to this site.
Problem is they are nothing but generic porn (completely un-Zoli-like) and fans of Zoli's would be bitterly disappointed about the vanilla nature of the videos. No further updates are listed in the calendar for the months to come, which leads me to believe that this is just an attempt to prove to potential subscribers to Zoliboy that this site is still very much alive ... and that is sleazy, in my opinion!
As is the fact that they don't give long-term subscribers free access to the new sites they keep adding to the network. I am starting to develop the same antagonism toward 21Sextury that another of our PU members has towards Brazzers. The name has become anathema to me.
I know that I will anger many of the loyal fans of this network who get a steady stream of updates to their favorite niches, but not all of us like glossy "babes" and I feel that those of us who don't are being grossly neglected. Especially when the new sites being added WOULD be close to our niche!
I'was a member of Analteen Angel 7 months ago, and yesterday I joined again the 21Sextury Network.
Great network but I see that some sites aren't in that Network as 7 months ago.
Peepeebabes, Fassinating and Playfulhands i.e. are regularly updated (see that sites), and seem to join the same 21Sex network, but there are not present in my 21Sex membership.
Someone can tell me why ?
Please beware of any annual membership subscriptions to this site. They don't provide any access to Horny Euro Sluts which is great site by itself. In case you have taken an annual membership it costs far less ($9.95) as compared to $24.95 a month which is a good savings but it is big trade off to some of their obsolete, non-updating,non-premium sites which is not disclosed at all in their terms. Unfortunately, this company claims that it will refund in case of disgruntled customers but that's just lip service as actions seem to take quite long by their high standards. This may flare up into a major concern as a member can access all their content only by being a member for 90 days minimum but their annual membership which is a 12 month non-recurring deal tricks you out of major premium sites despite you paying well in advance. It may well be that whomsoever wants to join this site may try it out for a month, then if he wishes to get more content, he may decide to continue. However, having yourself handcuffed to the site for 90 days seems quite better than having to spend time in incarceration for 12 months being denied certain privileges
There's supposedly a new premium site in the network that they invite us to visit on the network. Anyone figured out how to do that? My total sites still shows 47 and I see no scenes from that site or it's name in the drop down menu. Logging in via the url of that site takes me to the same main page as any other site on the network.
Just been looking to update my 21sextury vid collection and the anal site fassinating.com seems to have disappeared from the membership packages. I remember having access to it before the split into 21sextury/21sextreme but now it seems not to be listed as part of either network. Anyone have any idea where and why its gone?!?!??!??
The PU link to the 21Sextury site is broken. Can it be fixed? With the new rules I need to sign up as a new member again even though Ive been a member for two years, and I would like to get the PU price if possible.
I'm well into my membership now (I'll post a full review soon) and I may have jumped the gun a bit in saying the pricing problem is fixed. There are scenes marked as "extra" and those are all now available, assuming that it was these that weren't available before. What isn't available still are any scenes labeled as part of "Moviez." Acess to Moviez will cost you an additional $30. It appears that well over half of the material on the site is only available with the additional fee. This site is huge, so just paying the initial $20 fee is still worth it, but it is frustrating to not have access to all of the content. There is also no way (that I can find) to filter the extra content out. There are also some studios where 100% of there content is only available for the extra fee. Some may argue that this is the same thing that Videobox does, but I don't agree. Videobox charges $5 less for the initial subscription, and the two add-on sites are specific studios. Brain Pass / Pornstar Network doesn't have such a clear distinction, and the additional access is far more expensive than the additional content at VB. Also, you can filter out the additional content on VB.
TBP just did a review of Brain Pass / PornStar Network and they seem to suggest that the problem is fixed. Spencer wrote that “Their join process for normal people can be a little confusing as they have a free account, a paid account, and then a VIP upgrade option. To get the best, you'd spend $60 a month here. However, if you join through our site by clicking their link, you can get in for $20 a month, and access to the whole shebang, saving you $40 a month. This deal is exclusive to our site, and is pretty awesome.” I joined after the pricing issue was resolved and I don’t have access to the whole site. If I open a site available only through Moviez I get the requirement to spend an additional $30. I've submitted an error report and will see what they say when they get back to the site after Christmas.
This is still a great site, but the pricing model is a bit frustrating.
Since writing my review I have become more annoyed with this fact. Even though there are 3 sites that are part of this membership, and they are all supposed to be 3 different types of content, one thing in common runs throughout all 3 sites, and that's the constant anal scenes. Give it a break for god's sake, we're not all in love with anal. Make a fourth site be part of the network and have it be an anal niche, then leave the other sites to do their respective niche.
I could be wrong, but I believe this network is run by Dirty Sanchez, the original bang bus creator (which would explain why Preston has pretty much taken over Bang Bros).
The network looks pretty good although I haven't joined it yet. "Viva La Bus" looks just like his cash cow, Bang Bus, and some of the other sites look good too. Figured out it was Sanchez based on his voice and the fact that UGLY is driving the van. Haven't seen him in years. The Dec. 2 update looks amazing.
Found the network while searching for Morgan Dayne...apparently she has an exclusive contract with him.
Anyway, I look forward to joining soon and getting some more info. Did notice one bad thing--streaming only! Cautious about joining now.
Well, well, take a look at the new DDF-setup... Looks kind of great - and no words from here about it's at top of 'WHAT'S HOT' at TBP -seems like a fine choise - BUT:
Anybody here at PU a member at the moment - and how are things in this new DDF-deal????
Looks a lot like they'd been watching how 21Sextury is handeling things at the moment - with bonus-sites and all....
I just hate when I post a glowing, high review, then things start going wrong within a few days.
First problem is once again an "update" to 1byday (1-4-10) that was an update on Eve Angel Official two weeks ago. I take it they don't understand how unfair this is to those of us who pay $25 for Eve's exclusive content only to see it show up on their network that we pay another $35 for. From November 16th to current (January 5th), there have been EIGHT of these updates that come from Eve Angel Official. To make matters worse, Eve Angel Official only has 18 updates since November 16th.
Maybe I am jumping ahead of myself on the criticism. It should be noted that none of the Eve updates on 1byday have the videos ONLY the photo sets. So, I guess that is to make members of DDF Prod join Eve Angel Official to get the videos. It's still unfair to either side. I hadn't noticed those when I posted my review, but Monahan left a comment about some updates not having videos. I hadn't looked at Eve's content since I had all of it already, but took a glance to make sure I didn't miss anything and saw the video-less updates.
Nope, not the only problem. Our ISP finally picked up 25M internet speed. I upgraded to it from 10M. For 3 weeks, DDF Prod was giving me excellent 3 MB/s download speeds.
This past Friday, I signed in and started downloading some Cindy Hope videos, download speed = 15 KB/s or about 200 times slower than I had been downloading. I thought maybe it was my ISP, but speedtest.net said I was downloading at 25.46 M speed. I figured it was maybe one bad day and waited until Saturday to try again, 15 KB/s again, same on Sunday.
I go back on Monday, speed started out fast, 3.2 MB/s but before one video had downloaded it was back down to 15 KB/s. I just tried before posting this comment and am seeing a little improvement with 250 kb/s, but even that is way slower than what I had been downloading at. Of note, the download speed improved when I went directly to the site the video was on, instead of downloading through the DDF Prod site.
I'll give them a few days to work this out before changing my review score, but nearly a week has been lost at this point. Hopefully, things will improve on the DL speed. I think I'm fighting a losing battle on the Eve Angel part.
As others have mentioned, DDF is running a very good promo right now, but it has one big problem or maybe two. One is the right border cross-sale to Porn Access, two is that it doesn't look like you can change your credit card info. From the best I can tell it's an offer for past members and it is going to charge your card they have on file for you since it signs you up with your past username and past password. This is a problem because my credit card expired back in March and I now have a new one with a new CVV code or whatever it is called, the 3 digit number on the back. I'm not for sure why they would use this method to sign-up, especially with a huge discount and a marked cross-sale. I'm not insinuating anything except their promotion could be hurting itself since I don't think it would be possible for my card to be approved. My last membership was in May 2011, so surely they would know credit cards expire?
Good news to all friends of photography! The latest sets seem to have a new photo option, a highres zip package. The images appear to be originals at the more than what is needed 5616x3744 resolution or 21 megapixels. I guess this brings the network right to the top in this category.
Now I need to find some storage space for those 500 megabyte zips...
I'm a long term subscriber to this site and have always complained that we missed out on any new sites that were being added to this network.
My count of sites has quietly and suddenly gone up from forty to forty-four without announcement or fanfare. I still don't like most of 21Sextury's fare for its glamorous "slickness" but it's good to know that they finally did the right thing by those who paid by the year.
26/10/2010: One more site was added overnight (Old Young Lesbian Love) bringing my total to 45. Good for 21sextury. A happy (finally) customer.
Everything worked smoothly and nothing was corrupted. As members know, they did some server changes yesterday. Still I'll keep my fingers crossed as I've experienced problem free days in the past only to have everything fail the next time.
One comment I would add, in addition to my review:
I noticfed Sunday evening that when I did download a video, HD is NOT available in the download section. I believe you need to subscribe to Score HD and this is where the HD video downloads are housed. You can stream the videos in HD but cannot download them. I checked a number of recent video updates to make sure this was the case.
As I am not a big Video guy, this is not an issue for me(mostly). However, I believe this might some people might be rubbed the wrong way, especially if you are used to HD quality downloads. I also think that if this is true, the site owners might make this more clear on the members signup screen and advertising. The HD label appears on the videos, but it does not say you cannot download HD video but only stream them.
I would advise those interested in HD video to subscribe to Score HD if HD video is your primary interest.
Given the cost of subscriptions, HD should be available. IMO, this is a bit misleading but I will always give someone the benefit of the doubt. My opinion is that this is a cross-sell marketing strategy but that is just my opinion. I won't knock them for doing this as it is a good way to cross-sell their sites. I just wish they would be upfront in the member area at Scoreland that HD is NOT available for download there.
If you join you will be joined to other sites without your consent and billed $37 per month and when you demand a refund they refund and recharge you the next day month after month until you cancel your card.
VIPXXX Pass seems to have very contradictory information about which websites can be accessed and when. One page says 32 websites with two more each month (but doesn't say which two or if you choose or they are chosen for you), another page says 10 websites at first then more later. Porn users page indicate certain available websites, but these are not the same sites as indicated on the purchase page. I'm sooooo confused!
Even though there seems to be lots of wonderul content, I'm especially afraid of bait and switch tactics. Does anyone out there know how this network really works or if there is a page somewhere that CLEARLY explains what you get each month?
The PU price for the full network is still $29.95 despite what is posted on the PU home page for the site. So after being bounced from the site because my credit card expired last June I just now decided to sign up again.
They have made several changes in the site and navigation aspects so it'll take a bit to get familiar with it again. I'll write a supplement to Rusty's review once I'm back in the groove, but so far I'm not liking the changes.
In any case, if you are thinking about joining, you might want to sign up before the price goes up from $30 to the PU/TBP price of $45.
I recently went on holiday to Budapest, Hungary for a week. One night in my hotel armed with my laptop, speedy interent access and a horny GF, decided to try and log into my 21sextury account only to be told that access was blocked from my IP. I didnt even get as far as the login page the whole site was blocked. Fair enough I thought, a lot of the models are Hungarian so they want to stop family / friends from recognizing them. So I emailed their support asking for my IP address to be allowed access or at least to only block sites that feature primarily Hungarian models. I didnt even get a reply to my email, thanks "support" for doing your job. So thats 1/4 of my months membership in the toilet, had to resort to tube sites because my legally purchased membership was useless :(
