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If you're thinking of joining Twistys for hot models in glamor style solo and girl/girl shoots, well that may only be historical content going forward.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 website has very scrupulous billing tactics. Once you upgrade to realitykings.com, they automatically trick you and add you to realitykingsreel.com ! they then charge you for "2 sites". $19.95 + $39.95 ! After I contest the billing crooks, they apologize and said once the charges are posted, there is nothing they can do to refund the money. They are just the "billing company" and not the website owner. Be very careful with these crooks and their misleading billing tactics. I have plan to report them to the BBB. Watch for unauthorized bills from MBI-PROBILLER.COM/RK 877-446-0668. Once you give your credit card number, you will kiss your money goodbye. Their policy is "NO REFUND" even if it was their mistake. The guy answering the phone is the FLOOR MANAGER and pretends he is an expert in billing and not authorized for giving out
Over the past couple months, they've made a few changes to the technical qualities of their videos that I think are worth mentioning. The first is that they've introduced 4K (3840x2160) videos, becoming the first site to offer 4K scene downloads. The earlier scenes are around 11Mbps, the newer ones are a little over 20Mbps. The second is that they've upgraded the 1080p versions of the newer videos to about 12Mbps, which puts them in line with other major network sites on a technical basis.
I'm a huge fan of West Coast Productions, so I'm looking forward to them adding more dvd's from their vast library. The site is still missing some big titles and a lot of their older titles are not on the site yet - many older titles from 2001-2005 have not been added yet (older stuff like "There's Something About Jack", "Black Cravings", "Pink Pussy Cats", "Sweet Teens Black Cocks"). Hopefully they get around to adding more of these older titles, as it would be great to have access to their entire library someday.
I'll give them a pass since they only recently created this site and I imagine it takes a while to add an entire dvd library. It also looks like the site is still missing the "Mom's Black Cock Anal Nightmare" series, and the site still only has a few titles from the "Bomb Ass White Booty" series. I only see a couple dvd's from the "Juicy White Anal Booty" series (I believe they've made 7 dvd's for that series so far, but I only saw #7 and #6 available on the site). Hopefully they are planning to add more of their older dvd's in the coming year.
The site is impossible to cancel. Following the cancellation instructions on the website requires you to select from four different billing companies that MIGHT have billed you. I was billed by psnbilling.com which is NOT one of the four billing companies listed, leaving no means of cancellation. Going to psnbilling.com's site is equally unsuccessful: after entering account identifiers a 404 page comes up. So far I have spent more time trying to cancel than using the site. Cancelling should be as easy as joining, the only reason to make it harder is to increase revenue by billing for unwanted renewals, which judging from my own experience and those of other posters on pornusers.com, is exactly what elegantangel is now doing. Your membership also automatically and without your consent enrolls you in some other low end site, maybe a cam site, with per minute charges, the amount of which is not disclosed. Advertising links to the other site are on every page, I am going to guess, that if you click on any of those links you will get some outrageous per minute billings for something to which you never agreed. Looks like elegantangel has graduated from the bangbros.com school of billing trickery.
Unless this has been changed in the last week, It's not a full trial. I fell foul of this.
Not using The Best Porn website to access Devils film gives you a few joining options. One of them is for a 3 day trial at £3. If you let your mouse hover over this option, a pop up appears stating FULL access to the site with unlimited Downloads. It's wrong. I used this method.
Cancelling gets you the usual pop up offering a special £10 deal. I opted for this instead of cancelling but during the first 3 days you still have limited access (you don't get billed until the 3 days are over though.)
If on the other hand you join Devils film using The Best Porn link, it will take you to a slightly different joining page (there's no yearly option). Let your mouse hover over the 3 day option and it reveals the trial is limited.
You've been warned :) (Still a great site though :) )
Warning! This site tricks you into full memberships with so-called trial memberships! Even if you uncheck their trial offer, you are billed. You get not e-mail on this additional membership. Contacting the site leads to no reaction.
After entering info on the signup page , after clicking "complete this transaction", I am redirected to a page for "Net Cash" with an offer to pay without a credit card a "local retailer". For $29.95 a month, instead of the discounted $9.95. I have tried 2 different credit cards - both good - and from 2 different computers. Any insight?
I'm coming to the end of a month membership and went to cancel. It was a much more frustrating experience than usual so I thought for future members my lessons-learned may be of use.
I'm used to billers like CCBill and Epoch so my default means to cancel is to go to those sites and cancelling is easy. Private's primary biller is Rocket Gate and that's who I was billed through. I went to their site and found nothing for consumers so I Googled "Rocket Gate how to cancel membership" that did take me to a page where I could enter my email and username. The problem is that they had no record of me even though they are the biller. So I emailed them. That was 24 hours ago and I haven't had a response.
The Private site has no link for your account, but at the bottom there is a link for support. That leads to an FAQ page where there is a question about billing. Most of the answer directs you to Rocket Gate, but if you have the same problem as I had then that's not of any use. There is, however, a link to prvtbilling.com. That brings you to a page on the Private website that allows you to enter your username and email address. That worked.
I should also note that I didn't receive a confirmation email when I joined. Those often contain cancellation information. I first thought that could have screwed up my email address when I joined and that would explain the lack of a confirmation email and the inability for the biller to recognize me, but since the Private site itself recognized the email address I'd say I wasn't at fault.
My final advice is that since your membership remains active for the month even after you cancel I recommend trying to cancel early in case you do have problems.
if you are thinking to join this site because of anal content ( like me) beware that anal content is big time cut now. other than bwb, anal is extremely rare. still older anal scenes are out there but new ones are just not coming.
Looks like this site has really gone through some changes and appears to offer some really high quality stuff. Shame about no special offer and regional pricing though, 30 euros a month means no prolonged memberships for me.
Surprisingly they seem to accept PayPal too. I thought they had some kind of no porn rule...
Anybody member here sho could check if they offer Private magazines or photosets too? Might be my next subscription.
Lately they have not been placing the picture zip files until a day or to later, and if you keep track of the up dates or up coming videos, you might notice sometimes the updates are short one update posting. Small draw back, but I did notice a lot of comments on brazzers about there later posting of the zip files. Still a pretty good site for the money. My personal thought.
Iv just joined this site , downloading video,s isnt the problem, when i get to the main page and pick a scene to watch ,the scene doesnt show itself on my tv screen, i get the internet using wi-fi on the ps3 , it seems that the only way to watch a film is Flash video streaming, my ps3 is supposed to have the adobe flash player installed so i cant understand why the films are,nt playing on screen. My samsung tablet plays video,s easily thru flash, anyone out there any idea.s why the films arent playing. .
Warning - this organisation does not register cancellations
A warning to anyone who may join a site from this organisation - they do not appear to register cancellations. For the second time in as many months, I had to go to live support to cancel my membership. They told me I did not receive a cancellation confirmation, because my cancellation had not been registered. I would suggest you cancel very close to joining, because it may well take some time and effort to cancel once you have joined.
I took up their $5/£5 discount offer even though they have pre checked cross selling and regional discrimination. The renewal is significantly higher, so I'm willing to steal at steal prices, but not willing to pay a fair price for reasonable content from organisations who are going to try and trick or cheat you. I can't argue with the content, and I can't argue with live support, who although it took some time to find someone available, were efficient once I contacted them.
I suppose the lesson is, if you are going to pay for membership to an organisation with questionable practices, you will have to be prepared to put in some time and effort to avoid being ripped off. Buyer beware.
Had a little free time last week so I hopped onto this one via the $3, 3 day full trial through TBP. I didn't spend a lot of time here and I think the recent reviews and comments pretty much cover it. Just a few notes of my own:
I made a mistake by failing to notice the "no zips" warnings regarding the photos. Major Bummer as this definitely hurts the site since they offer up to 500 pics on some sets. Most photo sets across the network have nothing of value because they only have 8 to 40 pics but there is no way of knowing how my photos are in a set until you click on the scene you want to see. The internet Stone Age applications continue if you actually go into see the pics (they are good sized at roughly 1200 x 2000) and click on the photo thumbnails. If you click on 6 thumbnails on a page and make the pics full size that means 12 or more back page clicks to navigate back to the previous page. You get the idea here, ignore the pics.
Vids are all over the board. If it has an update stamp before 2010/2011 then it's not worth viewing as it means the scene was probably shot a long time ago and is grainy even at 480x640 resolution. The "540p" or "web hd" is something different that comes up on some recent vids but I found it to only be marginally better than standard resolution (I've never seen a camera with "540p resolution" settings so they're just doing some compressing of an hd file or enlarging a standard vid). The most recent vids have HD (probably several hundred across the network) and all are pretty much professionally done.
There is a fair amount of overlap with most vids appearing on at least 2 sites. The updates are not indicative of when a scene was filmed, I saw some updates within the last year that feature girls who left porn a long time ago. Navigation involves a lot of clicking and really needs to be upgraded. Be aware that the porn star directory is not complete on some sites. Really the best way to get around is to go to an individual site and start cruising the dvd scenes using their search tags (unfortunately you can only search one tag / category at a time).
There is a wide variety of porn to suit just about anyones taste with about 16,000 vids in total, although I'd say only about 1000 scenes have hd standards. I like the look and feel of the Devil's Film, Daring Film and Low Art films as they seem to be offering up more than just standard shoots, actually some artistic thought and production went into the scenes they shoot.
Like I said, I didn't spend much time here and since I'm more of a pic guy the lack of zips pretty much dampened my mood right off. I'd probably score this site in the 82-85 range if I did a full on review.
This is nothing too serious, but knowing this might save some aggravation when joining.
The site bills through Epoch and when you go to join there is one pre-checked cross-sell to Jordanís other site, The Ass Factory. There is also an unchecked cross-sell to Team Skeet for a seven day membership. I unchecked the choice for The Ass Factory since it only had less than a dozen updates in the past three months or so, and I checked the Team Skeet option because that seemed like a good deal.
The problem with the Team Skeet membership is that it is only a TRIAL membership and only allows you to stream one scene. It doesnít allow downloads. Iíll admit that I may have missed something, but I donít recall that the up-sell mentioned this was only a trial membership.
The more annoying issue is that when you go to the Jules Jordan site and select for recent updates they are laid out in a grid pattern. At the top of the grid is a banner ad for The Ass Factory. The problem is that the first three scenes listed are actually from The Ass Factory and clicking on them brings an Epoch confirmation page where you have to opt in. It wasnít clear what I needed to confirm so I did that thinking I was confirming my Jules Jordan membership and now have a membership to The Ass Factory too.
Iím fairly sure that I bear a lot of the blame for this. I suspect that if I could go back and re-read the join pages that the information was buried in there somewhere, but some of the blame has to go to Jules Jordanís site for making the information a bit confusing. Iím sure Iím not the first person to draw these conclusions based on the available information, but with any luck Iíll be the last PU member to make this mistake.
I subscribed to this site, and I am glad I did. Lot of high quality content, really good videos relative to what you may find on other DVD sites.
But they dont seem to update very often and the last video clip was 3 weeks ago.
This is not a problem now because the existing selection is pretty large.
But I will have to think a bit on the renewal because of the update frequency. Perhaps I will find they put a lot of dvds out there over the course of a full year, and I should be ignoring the week to week stuff.
I have not made up my mind yet because the content quantity and quality is really good despite the update concern.
