This comment is pretty much the same as a comment I posted on the Anal Acrobat site because both of these sites are owned by the same company and both have undergone a mild redesign. And both have the same major flaws.
I rejoined this site and the network that itís a part of. It has always come with access to several sites. The network has been redesigned but that redesign seems to be more change for change sake since the old design was functional and effective.
With this site they have made some changes that may mean this is the last time I join. In the past when you were on any site page that was part of the network there was a pull-down menu at the upper left that allowed you to select any other site in the network. Thatís no longer there. In fact, there appears to be no way to move between sites on the network now. There is a Ďnetworkí tab and selecting that brings up all the scenes on the network but there is no way that I can find to associate those scenes with a site or a DVD. Iíve also tried googling other sites in the network (Peter North, for example) but my username and password wonít work.
Site access isnít the only problem though. Now when you select a scene now it automatically starts streaming. For many this is probably a non-issue, but for me it is a major annoyance. I donít stream, I download. If I want to stream the scene Iíll do that myself. Why waste bandwidth having this start automatically?
Iíve emailed their support staff to ask how I access the other sites. If I get an answer and they make changes or point me to a way to actually do this Iíll post the answer here.
I read the TBP review of this site, Silverstone Video, and another site, Silverstone DVD. There appears to be no connection except that Silverstone DVD appears to be owned and operated by the Silverstone people and has a HUGE amount of Silverstone material. Silverstone Video is a relatively small site that was inactive for a while, but has been reactivated.
Each site is part of different networks with apparently no crossover on the sites.
TBP has given the sites scores of 80 and 79 respectively, so qualitatively there appears to be little difference.
The preview sites for each site shows that each site has a lot of the Pick Up Lines series, for example, so I'm now thoroughly confused.
Is there anyone out there familiar with both sites who can provide some perspective?
(I'm posting this comment on both the Silverstone DVD and the Silverstone Video site.)
I donít recall having this problem the other times Iíve been a member here, but all the download links seem to time out after ten minutes or so. This includes any links that you queue up with a download manager but also includes the links on the actual scene pages. I prefer to open the scenes I want in separate tabs and then download them from there, but after a few minutes the page needs to be reloaded to make the links active again. Itís not a deal breaker, but it is annoying.
I don't know if anyone else is having problems with the Brazzers site. But the problem that I have been having lately is that when you try to download the movie files it send you back to the log in page. I log in again with the same result...this happen more with the WMV movie files, as for the pic file there is no problems. And sometimes the next day scenes are not ready to download, you might need to wait 1 extra day. I tried contacting there tech via email and like always The reply I get is we will check one it thank you...
I subscribed to RK and was not pleased at all. It's the first Adult site that I've used with a download limit and I'm not sure what the limit is. It kicked in for me after I downloaded 8 movies. I wouldn't recommend them to others.
Both of my virus utils told me there was malicious content on their main page. I told them about it but they insisted that they have no issues. I asked for a refund based on that and they said that it was against their policy to ever give a refund for any reason. So, if you are going to try them out, please sign up for the smallest time frame to see if you like them. I suspect they have a lot of one and done type payments.
I should note though that the few videos I got for my $60.00 looked pretty good.
I'm wondering if anybody else has had a similar problem with their Brazzer membership in the last few weeks or months. I had a recurring membership for the last couple of years and last Thursday I tried to log in and was told that my membership was no longer active. That was news to me as I hadn't actually cancelled it and even more importantly I never got an email stating that my membership was cancelled. I emailed their help desk who was suppose to get back to me within 48 hrs but that was yesterday.
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: email@example.com 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
