I recently had to change my email and frustratingly they don't allow you to do it through their site (at least on the ddfadventures version). Imagine my shock when I got a message back from support after changing my e-mail which also contained my password!
As of today Twistys has reduced it's update schedule from what was once 3 photo sets and 2 videos a day only 6 months ago to only 1 photo set and 1 video a day. The reason? A major decline in memberships (income) due to a major decline in quality of new content over the last 3 months. Now that's all they can afford.
Twistys still has a lot of great historical content, but new content is rapidly becoming mostly 2nd rate stuff you'd find on free sites AND now there's less of it. They also censor most negative comments. The new content manager is on Twitter and acts like he doesn't care about the site and it shows. Of course the VP doesn't give him much funding to work with anymore either.
Check you inbox for promo offering of $5 for the first month of Hard X.
I've never been a member, but lately, it seems I've been getting a lot of promo offers from sites to join for $5 for the first month.
Don't know if this is a sign of desperation, or if the hard economic times are still continuing for the porn sites.
(Khan - I didn't want to edit my earlier comment because that would make the replies seem strange but if you want to delete that earlier comment and replies I'll understand.)
I emailed New Sensations earlier today and asked them about the download limit and told them that I thought 2GB in 12 hours was unreasonably low for a site that offers HD scenes. Here's the reply I got:
We are not limiting the 2gb per 12hours. It is 6gigs in an hour. And if you are "blocked" it is for only an hour. Or if you let us know, we usually can fix it even faster, but it resets in an hour. We had to do that as we found abusers with download managers that were hurting the streaming and downloading from legit members. Let us know if you are seeing things differently and we will help you. In the beginning (after we switched the site to offer all the new formats and sizes) we had to watch and see what was happening.

I can confirm that my experience with the site tonight is completely different than last night. Last night I was using a download manager to queue up scenes and I triggered the limit. I'm certain that the warning I got was 2Gb in 12 hours (because that's pretty specific) but I'll concede that I may have been mistaken.
Tonight I'm downloading again and I'm well over 2GB but I'm taking things slower so as not to hit the limit. So far I haven't been locked out.
It appears that the site's intention is to reduce site rips and large data transfers by download managers and I can live with that.
I think it's important to set the record straight. I apologize for any confusion and I'll update this as necessary in a review later.
I just joined this network an hour ago with the full-price monthly membership and can confirm that the same (ridiculously low) 2GB limit per 12 hours applies to the full membership too.
I figured that since both bibo and audrina69 had trial memberships that the limit may be applied there. I admit that this was just an assumption on my part and I didn't check the terms of service. (A fool and his money are soon parted...)
Because I've exceeded the bandwidth limit I'm not even allowed to log in so that I can check the Terms of Service to ensure that the limit is CLEARLY spelled out there.
Download limits piss me off. Unnecessarily low download limits mean I'll spend the month with them and that's the last dime I'll ever spend there.
I just found out there is a 2GB download limit (at least during the trial period).
The following message appeared on my screen:
Bandwidth Limit Exceeded
"You have exceeded the bandwidth you are allotted per day. Each member is allotted 2 gigabyte's per 12 hours. This is to ensure that bandwidth is more even around for all members to download at fast speeds all the time. If you feel that this has been a mistake, or that your username/password have been cracked or stolen please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look into this and see if your username has been compromised."
Note: after exceeding the limit, you can't even connect to the site anymore! Given the fact that there is no notice whatsoever about this limitation, I think this is rather cheeky. Maybe the TBP staff could add this to the site description?
Just downloaded some of the 4K videos and at 22,000 kbps these scenes are phenomenal to watch. Who needs 3D when you can have this quality and clarity, especially if you have a 4K screen. The files are big: typically 3 to 5GB.
I've been looking for some Brazzers scenes I've seen on tube sites *blush* that are linked to Brazzers as kind of short low res advertisements but I cannot find those scenes on Brazzers.
There's for example one BigButtsLikeItBig fetish kind of with Sandra Romain, Honey Demon and Danny D. The only hits I can find with search engine lead to site called brazzersvaults.org which looks more like blog, not a subscription site. The scenes cannot be found under Brazzers site "Brazzers Vault".
What's the deal? Is the dot org site even related to the Brazzers? Do they remove old scenes as I could find many images of that scene with Google stamped with BRAZZERS stamp but nothing like that scene under the brazzers.com having looked both actresses scene listings.
A few days ago I received 3 emails all referring to an old (about a year ago) subscription I had with them.
The first 2 said I'd taken out a membership, the third - an hour later - stated my membership had been cencelled.
What's happening here - I certainly didn't rejoin.
'Apparently' no money has been taken from my account, although the card I used for that membership had no money in it, so I can't be sure they didn't try to pull a fast one. I contact Epoch (their processor) and they confirmed no money had been taken, but still seems a little didgy to me !
They still haven't replied to my email requesting details about the emails, and I find it worrying.
Just wanted to let you know that Private is at present offering a 2 days trial, but it only allows you to view and download 5 episodes of your choice. It also reminds you continually (and annoyingly) that you can access everything by upgrading.
Well.. title says it all I guess.
Whenever I'm downloading something from this site, my internet connection goes kabooom. I can't browse, I can't load other pages. It is as if my connection is being reduced to 56k modem times. I can cap my bandwidth, no effect. This is the only site where this happens.
Anyone else got the same problem? Any ideas how to solve this?
Nothing. Sadly this site is completely untouched. There is a slight redesign, but no new content. In fairness, I think I remember reading somewhere the Dylan is retired - but I'd have thought they might have acquired some of her other content.
Bad enough that it seems the majority of the videos now show up with the message "upsellplus.php" where the "upgrade" is $29.99 for 30 days... but even the "low resolution" 1500kbs per second yield the same upsell message. OK so it costs 19.99 to join but then another 29.99 for the better videos??? What the ell!
Example: "Lexi Bell" searched under the term "Porn Stars" shows 60 results. After clicking the first 10 videos all of them with the upsellplus message (both 2500kbs and 1500kbs) its obvious the people running this site have an issue telling the difference between smart business practices and greed.
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?
