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If you're thinking of joining Twistys for hot models in glamor style solo and girl/girl shoots, well that may only be historical content going forward.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...
anyone joined recently? i remember having a few clips back in the day and loving it. just wondering if its worth it for a single month? also i seem to remember it was just a bunch of clips, the idea was to get you to buy dvds. was this true? thx
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.
First of all I have to say that I joined this site thanks to a 1 day free trial offer, so I cannot complain much since I didn't pay for it.
The reason I joined was, basically, to get access to the videos by some of my favorite girls, in particular Little Caprice (Caprice A in this site) and Blue Angel. And so I was a little dissapointed to see that there were only to videos of each, and although they were in fact highly erotic and extremely well filmed, well, I was expecting more.
During my 1 day free trial, of course, I also browsed and downloaded pictures and videos from other models, but I have to say that, after a while, and if the models didn't seem remarkable enough, it all started looking the same to me. I lost interest.
It's a pity because, in other aspects, this site seems made precisely for me: it offers high quality, sensual erotic material, without the hardcore, often extreme, sometimes disgusting stuff that you can find in most sites. Videos are filmed with care, and actors and actresses act passionately and with tenderness. Of course, if you are looking for a more extreme take on sex and porn, this site will probably dissapoint you.
From the technical point of view, I have almost nothing to complain about: you can stream videos (although I couldn't get to fast-forward) or download them in different qualities. Download speeds were good, and there didn't seem to be a download limit, even in free trial mode.
All in all, this site is excellent in the quality of the videos (technically and artistically), very good in relation to the beauty of models, quite good in design and navigation. It just gets a little repetitive when you browse through the archive. But hell, what site doesn't get repetitive after a while?
I've seen them for a while now on the met art network sites, says free day then you are charged $30 or something. Has anyone anymore info, is it legit, can you download anything on your free day and is it possible to cancel in time or do they charge you even if you cancelled as soon as you signed up.
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.
I was expecting alot of sexy mastubation videos and videos of riding dildos. They have some, but most of the videos show the girls waltzing around half naked in public places or trying to see how carrots, pickels and other fruits they can stuff in their vagina. They are often not even masturbating.
On top of this you can't use down load managers, which makes it a real hassel down loading. I can not recommend this site. I have deleted almost all of the videos I down loaded. Not worth the space on the hard disk.
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.
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.
As always, these guys are fairly aggressively marketing to ex-members like myself. Their latest (Halloween-themed) e-mails advertise a deal on six of Met's sites, mostly on the harder end of the scale, including one called MagikSex that I hadn't previously heard of. Anyone know what the deal with this site is - how long it's been around, whether it's a pre-existing site or a newly created one, etc?
From the previews I looked at, it seems like the hardest site in Met's network currently with the possible exception of Ninn (e.g. there's a fair amount of orgies and DPs), but still artsy. However, oddly for this network, I've seen some of the content before - at least some of it seems to be repackaged from various Private films. So seeing it on Met's network is odd, to say the least.
MetArt adding a tinge of more eroticism to some photosets.
MetArt is still softcore. But yesterday, 2013-10-19, they added a softcore lesbian photoset of two models. The models actually were shown touching and kissing each other's breasts, as well as kissing each other on the lips. A few years back the models might have looked at each other with their eyes, but fondling was strictly forbidden.
I guess Met-Art is trying to boldly step into the new world of eroticism, where being nude is not enough to satisfy its audience.
I really love their style of work and they have great quality pictures, but does anyone know if they'll have any low priced deals anymore? I occasionally got emails from them, but the past year I haven't got anything.
I for one wish X-Art would hurry up and launch their harder-hardcore version -- it that is indeed still in the pipeline.
I keep looking for videos that explore more vigorous anal and facials but with X-Art models, style, production values and beauty.
One idea I've become increasingly drawn to is seeing "glamour bukkake" or high-end, high-quality art videos devoted to women consuming semen slowly from their faces. It doesn't have to be a gross-out 20 men who provide the semen, but it might be from 2 or 3 guys.
The point is there really aren't any HQ artistic videos exploring the semen fetish today out there. Glamorous facials that take some camera time (like 5-15 minutes) and show lots of semen worshiping and slow semen eating -- this sort of fetish I would love to see from X-Art.
All with lots of eye contact.
Many men get off only after the male actor has ejaculated. For that very reason, X-Art and other glamour sites ought to spend more time on the post-cum head and various fetishistic ways of eating cum. Perhaps from champagne glasses or pacifiers, perhaps just right off another female model's face, perhaps off a glass table top.
But something harder-edged and more fetishistic is in order. Not gross and mindless, like "1000 Facials" or some German/Japanese bukkake high-volume site, but something artistic and expressive of the love a woman can show for a man's sperm.
I firmly believe that a web site is only as good as its customer service. Once again this week, Met Art demonstrated that it is an AWESOME web site by providing some of the best online customer service I have ever experienced.
I upgraded my subscription from monthly to annual. My monthly subscription was through Epoch and my annual subscription is now through their new biller(Rocketgate?). What I did not realize is that Epoch had already queued me up for my monthly charge, which I saw on my account a few days after upgrading. I sent an email to Met Art support telling them about the issue. Within a few minutes, here is first class the response I got:
My name is amnon and im the CEO of MetArt,
So sorry for your trouble; however rest assured you are in great hands and our support team is looking into this issue ASAP.
we will make you happy.
all the best,
OK, I'm not easily impressed, but here is a guy who truly understands how important it is to be responsive to customers.
So many other websites (adult or otherwise) really don't care when there are problems and some (often adult) are downright obnoxious (Go look at the chain of my MPL Studios comments. I complained about an easily resolvable problem and MPL Studios blamed ME and permanently kicked me off of their site.)
Oh, and yes, I was promptly refunded the Epoch overcharge and received a follow up email from Met Art customer service to ensure everything was OK.
Kudos to Met Art for not only having a terrific web site, but for ensuring that, in the words of the CEO, "I am happy". Yes, I am happy. Thank you very much!
