In recent months they have been splitting their photo sets up in to 2 or 3 parts so instead of a complete photo set every day you now only get a half or third of a photo set for your daily update and usually have to wait 1 to 2 weeks to complete the set. A disappointing development for one of my once favourite sites.
The MindGeeks (Twistys parent company) VP decided to screw over the runner up of the Treat of the Year contest and make the 5th place finisher runner up because they want to completely change Twistys into just another blah boy/girl site.
They've already shrunk updates from 3 photo sets and 2 videos a day down to 2 and 1 and the quality seems to be dropping off. They still advertise 3 and 2 updates, so they are engaging in illegal false advertising and have done so for a couple months now.
If you're thinking of joining Twistys for hot models in glamor style solo and girl/girl shoots, well that may only be historical content going forward. The slimeball VP who is now in charge is determined to change the site into generic boy/girl site so don't expect a lot of new traditional Twistys content going forward. These slimeballs also run Brazzers and other sites and have ZERO respect for customers, models and everyone who works for them.
Twistys, (but soon to be not as we currently know it?)
Well it would appear that Mindgeek has decided to make some (dodgy) moves with Twistys.
This all started with the leaking of the TOTY winners followed by the revelation that the runner up was not going on the TOTY trip (replaced by one of the other contestants) as in previous years (and the further developments that this had been mandated by parent company management).
This all caused an uproar on the forums which then resulted in the link to the forums being taken away from the members site. Since this has happened, the manager of the site who took over in the running from Shap after it sold has left (fired?).
This is all addition to the various site malarky that has occured recently:
- the drop in updates (yet they still advertise 3 galleries and 2 videos a day)
- the removal of advance search
- the replacement of their entire photo retouching team
There are rumours that they will no longer be shooting solo-only models. Shap has even popped up on the forums wondering what the hell is going on...
The PU/TBP link shows a signup price of $44.99 per month and $149.99 for one year. Looks like the special price shown on TBP has been withdrawn. They still offer the 2 day free trial that converts to $44.99 per month on day 3. They also still offer 3 months for $89.99.
Holy Mackerel - why did I join this site - again? Oh, because those Playboy-dudes still have some of the best looking models - and normally I do not mind that softer material.
But the way they - now - do the videos get me close to a nervous breakdown.....fast, fast clips - like in a trailer....the moment you get a fine view of the model, they cut - fast, fast fast...and it goes on and on and on.
Guys: Slow down....."give the singer some" (quote Jim Morrison) - Lol.
Since DDF seems to differ slightly from what I found to be very easy with other sites, I thought I'd post a question here on how other users/members do.
What I basically prefer to do is this: find a scene, download it together with a "cover" image, and store them together in a separate folder. This way its easy for me to browse through scenes by the cover images using a mediastreamer connected to a tv.
On first impression DDF seems to be exemplary: an excellent "cover" image showing not only the scene name and the performers but also the site name.
But when adding videofiles into a download manager, and downloading each "cover" images separately, its neither easy nor exemplary to me: the image found on the download page has no file name which relates to the downloaded scene, and can differ slightly from those "cover" images presented when browsing for scenes. The image found on the download page is both smaller in size and can be less informative.
So far I found it to be less than enjoyable manually renaming files/sorting out which image goes with which videofile.
Am I missing something? How do other users do when organizing their downloaded content from DDF network sites?
This site, and it's network, was once a great place before ownership changed. They now engage in the shady practice of throttling download speed during various times of the day, that is to say they intentionally and with malice aforethought slow down your speed, even to less than 100 kb/s at times. Of course the motive being to save bandwidth and increase profit. Before you ask, yes I checked this out thoroughly to make sure it wasn't me. For instance, I downloaded simultaneously form Met-Art and this site; Met had my normal speed, OBJ was drastically slower. I did join through TBP discount, perhaps it's only us. But I'll never know, because after I rip the whole site by downloading day and night, I will never join this or any of their sites again.
I was told I'd get a reply back within 24 hours.
Well, it's been longer than three days. Nothing back.
However, The basis of my inquiry had to do with my interest in joining this site (Only Silk and Satin)
The only drawback is my intense dislike for pantyhose!
In fact, anything that remains leg cover throughout the entire scene.
I had asked if I could purchase the same subscription without the bulk of the model's screwing up the whole shoot with any form of fabric covering the thighs.
Have not been here for quite a while - but the main reason for joining once again are loss of former material - due to external breakdown.
Generally the ups here are the different way of shooting vids - compared to most other main sites - it's got a certain touch of libido and foreplay that a lot of those other top/mainsites miss - and there are some not so well known French models with a different attitude.
And a large number of material.
The downs are too many models that would (probably) not turn your head in the street....
BTW: The join gets you to some French billing co. - not comfortable with that - but after a couple of hits I got to Epoch - and just cancelled the rebill - and got a corfirmation after a couple of minutes......
Over 2 weeks on the site I've seen no updates. I sent a message to their support about some bad links and haven't received a reply.
I'm using Safari on a Mac and the interview videos are either duplicates of some of the regular videos or invalid links. The interview videos do not match the thumbnail images on the interview pages. I suspect someone did a sloppy job setting up the interview pages, but why haven't they fixed it?
It's been almost a month now and no updates. No replies to my support requests either. I'm about to drop my membership and it is unlikely I'll join this site again.
Teen Models is still posting almost daily picture updates, but they haven't put up any new vids since Dec 27(2013). Are the Webmasters on some kind of extended holiday vacation? Or are they no longer intending to put up videos, at all?
Over the last few months, they've gone from posting two video updates per week (Monday & Friday)to just one on Friday...and now it seems they've gone down to none at all. Too bad, b/c in the past they've given us some of the hottest single girl/masturbation video content out there, and now their best selling point seems to be fading away completely.
I was getting ready to join again, but if they're no longer going to post new videos, then much of the "draw" is gone(for me, at least), and I'm pretty much no longer interested.
I hate to give up on one of my all-time favorites, but I may just have to be content with staying with the many other websites out there that can give me what I'm looking for. Just sayin'...
Unlike other sites that offers easy cancellations through a billing processor or onsite with just 2 pieces of information, playboy.tv requires people to contact the billing processor through a toll free number, a live chat that doesn't work or email(which who knows when they will respond within the 2 day trial period).
On the plus side, I wasn't put on hold while calling the toll free number. Having to call a number to cancel is just bad practice.
Here's hoping this message will get to the webmasters.
Because I'm such a passionate fan of Aria Giovanni, for that reason alone I would plunk down whatever it takes to see her videos that are featured on a given site. Getting all the other bonuses that goes with her stuff is just icing.
But Aria has created a problem that exist not only elsewhere but also on DDF Network that's drastically changed all that.
The following will explain what I mean .........
The woman has developed an inordinate obsession with her tits. Over 90% of her videos anymore are rife with her fondling them even beyond Ad nauseam.
Even for tit-lovers its bound to wear on them.
All the other fabulous anatomical gifts she should use is wantonly wasted because of her seemingly endless, digital lifting, squeezing, pushing together, nipple pinching, rolling, or any other thing one can think of a woman can do with her boobs.
Whatever happened to her bumps and grind and sundry other wildly erotic writhing and hip thrusting. Hell, who wants to see tits when she can do so much more with her other equipment?
Another thing I'll pass along while I'm so ticked-off:
Her recent sharp increase in lesbian roles is also becoming serious scene stealers.
That, and all her mammary-calisthenics are taking up so much celluloid that her great, unmatched legs and ass action is falling by the wayside.
Tell the woman this tit thing has got to be bothering a large segment of guys out there, who, like me, are sick and tired of looking at the dammed things.
I'm afraid they've gone too far for us - successive scenes with anal is just too much. We've cancelled membership. A real shame, this was a nice site, but they've obviously decided to change their target audience, and we're not part of it.
I happened on a truly amazing deal on a 30-day join to the DDF Network. Unfortunately, I was much less excited by the download speed I'm experiencing. I'm downloading at 265 kb/second at DDF Network. That's so slow that I had to do a test, so I downloaded a vid from Twisty's, which downloaded at 2.5 mb/second.
which I have enjoyed, I've encountered a problem, with download speed slowing to the point of uselessness. Since this isn't happening anywhere else, I'm forced to conclude that the problem lies with the site rather than my machine or ISP. Several hours after contacting the site I've not yet received a reply.
I've got a 120 day membership, but to have the best part of a day (at least) knocked out must be a real pain in the arse for people on a one-month sub.
Following my recent review, my subscription ends in a few days and this is my last time home, so I've just downloaded the last material I will get from here....
We kept a film with my favourite model Susie (Dido elsewhere) to watch at the end... what a shocker. It was a washed-out, blocky, pixelated mess - I can't believe anything this technically poor was put on a professional site, effectively unwatchable. As I said in my review, clearly no-one is bothering to check on the quality of the material any more.
I also quickly looked at another film - it was a DP scene with James Deen, so it had a pretty high uggh factor to start with but it did have a sort of creepy fascination. The girl was a scraggy little thing with buck teeth, an average little porn girl and a long way short of the standard x-art used to have. It was just shot from the middle distance with no style, and the end was careless - a guy came on her face, a quick clunk edit to a shot of her with obvious fake cum for 2 seconds and clunk, the film stopped. No time or care taken at all.
These two films sum up why I am out of this site... It really isn't glamcore any more.
