Warning: trying to trick European customers with "special offers"
I used a TBP discount to buy an evilangel.com membership. When I decided to cancel they offered me a 30 days membership for $11.21. So I decided to stay. Since I didn't receive a confirmation email, I was a little sceptical. That's why I contacted their support with a couple of questions, and I'm glad I did.
Imagine my surprise when they told me, that they would charge me the same amount in Euros. Which is in fact $15.26 and not what I agreed to!
I'm really getting tired of the porn industry and their shady tactics. Shit like this is why people aren't willing to pay for porn anymore.
Iíve been a member here twice before and while there was a wide variation in models before it seems to be that there has been an overall slide in model looks over the past few months. Some of the more recent models have been downright scary looking. (But for those with this fetish, there was a very-pregnant model a couple of weeks ago.) For first-time members this wonít be an issue, but if you are returning make sure to look carefully at the previews before deciding to rejoin. I hope this is just temporary.
This site has currently a 12GB download limit. Annoying to be sure and my fault for not realizing it when I signed up. The bigger bullshit though is that they don't automatically unlock the accounts after the 24 hour penalty period.
According to their terms, it's supposed to be locked for 24 hours if you exceed the download limit. However to get your account unlocked you have to email their support. I've been locked out of my account for periods of 30, 38 and currently 25 hours. That's an extra 15 hours - nearly an entire day of access - they've stolen from me. Complete bullshit. Download limits are bad enough - can blow through 12GB on my connection in less than an hour - but to not automatically unlock frozen accounts? That's next level.
I'm also pretty sure their stated 12 GB download limit is wrong. When I was most recently locked out it was after downloading 11.8 GB.
I will not be renewing my subscription or ever resubscribing!
I'm a current member of the site and it has an option to see upcoming updates but I noticed a while back that the updates stopped at a certain date and at first I just thought that they would start adding new updates later on but I just checked and the last update was 2 days ago and you can't see any new stuff on the update screen.
They may have had a serious computer problem because they have now started updating again and there are more updates to come.
The first 17 vids look great and r worth a visit. Be warned that all the videos after the first Dakota Skye post are only 720p. I have tried to see if this will change but the customer service is virtually non-existent over there, and when I did hear back from them they were misleading. If anyone knows if this has changed and they are back to 1080 please let me know.
I got an email on Thursday for a site called XXX Pawn. It wasn't listed here so I checked it out from the email. It looked interesting and I would definitely consider joining so I clicked the link to "Join Now" and I can't accuse them of lying. I wanted to see how much the site subscription was but instead a page popped up thanking me for joining. A bit of digging revealed that this is a new Bang Bros site and because I was a recent BB member they obviously retained my credit card information.
My advice is to make sure any "join" link you hit from an email isn't from BB or you might be in for a nasty surprise.
After registering and reveiving my welcome email, I tried to connect but couldn't log in. After a couple of failed attempts, I was temporary banned for "too many failed login attempts". So I wrote a support ticket, explaining my problem.
The next day, I was really able to connect (wohooo!) and I even managed to download a movie (go me!!!)... just to get booted from the site after a cople of minutes. Logged in again and saw random lines of php code on the side of the screen and my account was created on "22.12.2012" for whatever reason.
After another booting event, I was lead to a login screen, that didn't even give me the oportunity to enter my login details. The text fields just wouldn't accept any letters (however, the "wrong password" message was still working, thank God!)
In addition to that, some of the 1080p movies are actually 720p resolution.
Bottom line: I've never seen such a messy, buggy and instable site. If this is the member area of a paysite and they deal with people's personal data and cc details, we should be worried.
Happened to see Maggie's review on this site today and hopefully this comment should clear up some questions she had about this site. The material from this site originated from the Robert-Rosenberg.com site that existed about 10 years ago and was originally part of the, now, Tainster network. So, don't ever expect to see any HD vids on this site (didn't exist back then) and don't expect it to ever really grow (it wasn't very big 10 years ago either). The original site at least had pics (tiny by todays standards) but I see they don't have any today. Basically, just another site trying to milk out a last dollop of cash by recycling old content.
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 liked this site, it competes well with Videobox and has thousands of scenes. Be careful where your cursor is. One wrong click on an image or a logo next to the scene and you will be billed $40 within minutes. I was going to go for a 1 year membership before this happened. Not now.
Some people will like this site. The photography and lighting are good, the girls are hot. However, in the few dozen scenes I watched the extreme closeups dominated the movie, which is a turn off for me. Photographers that spend most of the scene a foot away from the action do the actors and the viewer a disservice. Disappointing.
I added on a group of sites called the "SuperPack" to my BB membership. I received an email with the joining information (with the same username and password as my main membership) and with a link for customer service that was different from my main membership. I followed the link to cancel the SuperPack membership and it's the same page as the main site where you have to select which site you want to cancel but "SuperPack" isn't listed. My confirmation email said I joined through Dancing Bear (which is part of the Pack) but the site said I didn't have a membership there.
Also, there is a two-part captcha where one part of it has to be the most difficult to decipher that I've ever seen.
I haven't had any billing issues, but my advice is to cancel any add-ons early in case you have problems. I've sent them and email and I'm hoping that cancellation isn't a more of a problem than it is already.
Page loads are now excruciatingly slow most of the time (20-30 seconds or longer). Streaming videos are hit or miss - many don't even work. Downloadable videos are hosted on three different domains, all of which behave differently. It seems they are moving everything to Cloudfront (Amazon CDN). Cloudfront and the other newer server (Videobox-branded, don't know anything else about this one) are both unfriendly to download managers. If you queue several downloads, the ones further down the queue will likely have their authentication expire, and you will have to go back to each individual page to restart the download. I've joined this site many times in the past - this time I cancelled immediately. No longer recommended unless you'd rather spend WAY more time browsing than actually watching anything.
Also, I'm sure it's been noted, but the VAST majority of "new" movies added are old movies I've already seen recycled so many times i could probably recite the interviews. I'm pretty sure they're going for a record on how many times they can call the same New Sensations title "new". This seems even worse than it used to be, not a deal breaker but sort of annoying to sift through. Their "recently popular" section helps with this, but mainly just gives you two sections to check for new content (and more time spent waiting for pages to load).
Have anyone experienced any issues due to inappropriate use of personal information?
Any recommendations on what to look for before signing up in a new site will be more than welcome.
According to Duke, this site does not come with bonus access to the No Rest Network sites, but according to the preview home page it does. Either way, it's good to see the No Rest Network out of hibernation even though it is under new management.
The site is still amazing in quality and content all these years. Heading towards the 1000 photo/video shoot. The erotic locations they work in are bar none the best on the net. The backgrounds it self takes you to places you never would have seen. The very best models doing the sites niche theme. They take you into the crack. Downloads are fast. For fans of the past it is well worth a look. Been a member several times and it is still my favorite site. My hat off to the staff.
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?
Just thought I'd chime in with my impressions. I've been a member of this site for over a month and haven't had any shady billing issues yet. Like people have said, they do some tricky things to make you think you have access to things you don't, but if you're careful and only click on things that are part of the "BangBros Pack" then you should be fine. It is frustrating though.
The main "HOME" page of the members area is full of sites you don't have access to, but it's displayed in a way that could trick you into thinking you have access to those sites. At the top of this "HOME" page it says: "Your Library - Listing of the products you have access to", but you don't actually have access to most of these sites unless you pay another $19.95. When they say "Listing of the products you have access to", they don't actually mean these sites are part of your current membership, they mean you can add access these sites if you pay more...so, their wording is somewhat deceptive when they say "Listing of the products you have access to"...but problems can be avoided if you are careful and have read the warnings in the comments and reviews here on The Best Porn.
Rather than just take you to the area where you actually have true access (such as the "BANGBROS" tab or "ALL WEBSITES" tab at the top of the site), they start you out in an area full of sites that you don't have access to yet. However, the thumbnails for these sites have small lettering under the image that says "get full access for $19.95", so there is at least something there to indicate that you don't have access yet...but if you don't pay attention, I can see how you'd think you had access to one of these upsell sites.
Basically all you need to know is - when you enter the members area, go to the top and click on the "ALL WEBSITES" tab - this will take you to the sites that you actually have access to with your current membership. This is the area that should be the "HOME" page, not the area they have now.
Also, when you watch streaming videos, there will be thumbnails for other videos along the right side that might be for sites you don't currently have access to. Or when you click on a certain girl's profile, it will show all of her videos - but there may be videos mixed in there that are on sites you don't have access to. So you have to be aware of the sites that are part of your "BangBros Pack" and make sure to only click on those videos. I haven't clicked on the wrong video yet, so I can't confirm if you are automatically billed for sites just by clicking on the video.
Other than these annoyances, it's a good site with a ton of content. I'll have a full review in a few weeks.
Site network looked like it could have some interesting content on it, with some new faces, but it was a big letdown. Not much content on each of the network sites, movies can't be downloaded and pics are not very well-shot. The pics also have way too many duplicate images, and they can only be saved as large zip files. Also, not all videos have accompanying photos sets. If you don't care about pictures or being able to save movies, you might like this network, but you should still probably give it several more months to grow before shelling out for a membership, since there are only about 60 videos so far across the entire network.
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.
I tried to join PG by applying an offer from idealgasm ($9.95/mo. expires on 3/26/14) yesterday (3/24/14), but the deal was nowhere to be found. Just the regular prices on their site. Contacted PG and got no response. Very disappointing.
(yes I know how to use idealgasm links...done it many times)
Edit - changed original title to be less negative...
