No excuse - I've read the TBP warning about download limit.
And then thought: what the heck.....2GB a day.
But no, not: "what the heck".
When you join a site for the first time...or for the first time in quite some time (like me) you tend to go half crazy with multiple downloads. And if it's vids, you reach that limit fast...and then you're locked out for 24 hours.
Hate it - never going to join another site with "download limits"!
I'll be posting a full review of this site with all the usual factoids I include - but I wanted to provide my personal opinion and issues with this site and Japanese porn in general. I definitely like the look and fashion style of Japanese AV models - I think they are some of the hottest women in the world - and this site has many fine examples of that beauty.
That said - I do not like the truly submissive, near rape-play style that nearly all real Japanese hard-core features. Very rarely do the girls look they are enjoying sex - and sure they are hot and doing many of the same things other porn stars are doing - but they whimper, whine and cringe the whole time. I would love a Japanese site that was filmed by a European or American director - someone who got the girls to smile, be energetic and enthusiastic.
While I like girls as the submissive partner - I guess what I like I'd call aggressively submissive (see German Goo Girls for an example) - this site is just submissive submissive. That said - it is well filmed and some of the girls are crazy hot - check out the model "Hoshino Mai" - she could easily be a fashion model. I'll cover all the important facts in the review now. Cheers!
I love the JAV vibe ting but these download limit comments are kinda scaring me a touch. Not in a girlie way but in a wallet way.
Ok, I'm down with Yu Aizawa, but cannot find any of her material on this site. Can anyone who is a member vouch for this?
Also, the mosaic shit and softcore thang doesn't really happen with me. Is there good hardcore content or am I going to have to use my limited imagination as someone said summat about bikinis. I'm not really down with bikinis otherwise I would go to a Japanese beach and get it for free.
Oh, and before wallet is unleashed, is there a regional pricing issue to contend with? I only have one lung and a single kidney left after subscribing to HLF, so need to be sure about this.
Thanks if anyone can enlighten a boner nursing ethnic.
This site has excellent exclusive content. There is plenty of it as well. BUT: The photos appear to be deliberately mixed up, instead of being in order. As such they are really frustrating. The site separates each video into as much as 40 clips and you have to download one or two at a time. Then you have to download the string to combine them all together. There is no option to download the whole movie. You are forced to undergo this process as download managers are not permitted. I have never experienced anything like it!!! This has to be the most frustrating site I have ever visited. After paying good money, you do not expect to have to do this. It is a terrible shame, because the content is excellent. I can't stand this, so I will not be renewing my subscription and would not have taken it out in the first place. Be warned!!
Ya know, you can have a site that has great updates on a regular basis, but if you click on a page and it takes forever to load - and then you finally get to the page where you can download a vid and the damned thing times out before you can even START your download, what difference does it make?
It's just waving great unattainable material in front of a horny member's face and saying "Ha Ha! See what you could have if we actually had our shit together enough to have a site that worked?"
Most of the pros/cons have been covered by the reviews and comments here. All I can add is that, if you're looking for the traditional JAV videos (i.e. censored/mosaic'd filters on genitalia), ActionJAV is really all you need. Not only do they have an immense catalog of almost every JAV actress (especially the top ones), but it's organized very well with good screencaps of the action and DVD covers for each movie. Speed has been a bit of a problem for me in the past, as sometimes it fluctuates from pretty good to really awful.
Still, if I were to choose one JAV website tailored for English speakers, ActionJAV is the all you really need.
At My Horny Asians (part of the 21sextury network), they advertise $9.95 Month.
You click on the hot link, and you get 3 options to sign up:
1. 1 year, no rebill, $9.95/month, billed at one installment of $119.40 at one time.
2. 1 month, rebill at $9.95 after 4th months. In the first four months you pay $19.95/month.
3. 3 month, rebill at $19.98/month. Recurring at $59.95 every 90 days.
So I don't see any option to sign up for $9.95 for the first month, whether it's one-time only, or $9.95 for first month, and a higher price for succeeding months.
I've seen a similar advertisement at another site, where they advertise $9.95/month, but it turns out, when you go to the signup page, that is the rate for a 1-year subscription.
Which seems slightly deceptive to me.
If they advertise $9.95/month, and at the signup page it turns out that $9.95/month is only available with a 1-year subscription, I wonder if that is legal.
There are supposed to be "Truth in advertising laws".
FTC Resources for Reporters
Truth in Advertising and Marketing
When consumers see or hear an advertisement, whether it’s on the Internet, radio or television, or anywhere else, federal law says that ad must be truthful, not misleading, and, when appropriate, backed by scientific evidence. The Federal Trade Commission enforces these truth-in-advertising laws, and it applies the same standards no matter where an ad appears – in newspapers and magazines, online, in the mail, or on billboards or buses. The FTC looks especially closely at advertising claims that can affect consumers’ health or their pocketbooks – claims about food, over-the-counter drugs, dietary supplements, alcohol, and tobacco and on conduct related to high-tech products and the Internet, such as the dissemination of spyware. The FTC also monitors and writes reports about ad industry practices regarding marketing of food, violent movies, music, and electronic games to children.
When the FTC finds a case of fraud perpetrated on consumers, the agency files actions in federal district court for immediate and permanent orders to stop scams; prevent fraudsters from perpetrating scams in the future; freeze their assets; and get compensation for victims.
But internet sites advertise $9.95 month, and then at the signup page, it turns out that only applies with a 1-year subscription.
So I guess it's misleading, but legal.
Edit01: If you use the PU link to 21sextury, you can join that network for $9.95 for the first month, recurring at $29.95 every 30 days.
The 21sextury network includes access to My Horny Asians. So there are sometimes work-arounds to getting a cheaper subscription price.
a) Took several hours to get access - with both IE and Firefox, all I got were "Internal Error" messages - that sets off alarms to me. No C/S response until the morning, at which point they claimed that the problem was entering the wrong secret word, which all needed to be entered in lower case.
In fact, 2/3 of the time, the secret word appears in all caps, and my experience is that the secret words need to be entered exactly as they appear. In fact, I tried several secret words before I finally got access - some were lower case, some were all caps. Now that I got access, when I re-logged in this morning, the secret word was in all caps - when I entered it in all caps, I was in - so the C/S response had nothing to do with the actual situation.
Some PU's think it's perfectly reasonable to not get access to a site for days, according to justme's response to my earlier comment. I disagree - For it to take hours after many attempts in multiple browsers, is not reasonable.
b) No pic updates since December 2008 at all
c) They add about an hour's worth of vid clips per day. As I say, these are clips - sections of DVD's. While actionjav.com is adding 5 full 2 hour DVD's a day - approx 10 hours of material and jsexnetwork is adding multiple DVD's per day and multiple photo sets on some days, I would say that - on average - the amount of material updated on this site is approx 1/10 the material being added per day on those other sites.
d) They tend to update with uncensored material - much more than either of the other 2 sites mentioned. actionjav has no uncensored material, to my knowledge. jsexnetwork is infrequently updating with uncensored material (vids with a filter are the norm among the big studios in Japan)
e) The updates are hot - lots of Maria Ozawa and other babes that are definitely up my alley. And the vids look great full-screen - very clear, very sharp images - with the Windows Media Player, I can always decrease the viewing window for even more clarity, but I might not have to with this stuff.
f) The download speeds are good. The navigation across the Idols69 site and across the network of sites (at least the Racing Girls' site, which is the only one I checked out much so far) is good - you won't have the frozen page problems that actionjav has frequently had.
g) The price with the TBP discount is just over 1/2 that for a month's access as compared to actionjav & jsexnetwork - though the $19.95 price is for 1 month ONLY - after that it rebills at $29.95.
h) For $19.95, now that I have access, and presuming that I don't start getting their Internal Error BS again, I'm sure that I'll get my money's worth. At $29.95/month, it wouldn't be a good deal as compared to actionjav or jsexnetwork, which have 10 times the material in their updates - and in the case of jsexnetwork update with many full gravure photo sets.
I've been meaning to join a Japanese site for awhile now, but can't seem to make up my mind on which one. My main interest is Maria Ozawa and it looks like this one has a lot of her content. I guess I'm still a little timid based on the blurry thing and am wondering if this site offers the most uncensored content. It's hard to tell by the TBP reviews as it seems to annoy the TBP reviewers as well! Any of our Japanese expert users have any advice?
Not a member of this site. At least some of the models listed are famous Japanese models who are/were completely non-nude. Aya Ueto and Aya Hirayama, for example, are famous models who have appeared in bathing suits, but that is as much skin as they have ever shown.
Anyone joining this site expecting a lot of nudity will probably be disappointed. There are a lot of absolutely lovely Japanese models featured, but a gravure model is not a nude model, but one who wears clothing (including swimsuits and lingerie).
This site has the fastest D/L speed I have ever experienced bar none. And the video files are all around 1GB or more, but I'm downloading them in minutes. They do have a daily 8GB D/L limit, but I can see why---with the speed it would be easy to get 20GB-30GB daily. I would run out of HD space quickly! They have a ton of material though. Review later. BTW TBP, the price is $2 lower than you indicate. I don't know why you do not have a review of this, it's a first class site.
After reading on the site that they do requests and emailing them asking how long it takes with no response, I've decided to ask here. Has anyone ever actually requested a video and was it put up in time for a one month subscription? Or, does anyone know how long the request will take through experience? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
While browsing through my bookmarked sites trying to find something to join which isn't going to screw me with regional pricing i noticed some changes here since i last checked out the tour. It now comes with a bunch of bonus sites All Asians, Filipino Fuck, Pink Affairs, and Tia Ling. I've not joined an asian site since the old Asian 4 You site went offline a few years ago as good quality photographic asian sites seem to be few and far between but 88 Square does seem to be one of the best around at the moment unless anybody knows differently. This must be a fairly new deal with the bonus sites as they are not mentioned in TBP site facts for 88 Square.
I saw on another forum that Tia Ling is retiring. Not sure what that means for her site as I'm not currently a member, but thought I'd let people know. Happy for Tia, though, and hope she enjoys her post-HC life :)
Total ripoff with the mosaic crap and the 6 gb limit. The movies can be pathetically slow to dowload as slow as 100 kb/s is slow don't cancel it you only get 4 movies a day. that includes streaming movies so you have to plan what you watch. Watch when you sign up they set the membership for 2 months so unless you want to get suckered in buying a 2 month membership at a substandard site avoid this site.
Easy signup, but problems follow.
Signup was easy for sexasian18 thru CCBill today.
Was assigned a username and password thru CCBill.
But 40 minutes after signup, have not received any confirmation email from CCBill about my subscription. Over the past several months there have been a few times I did not get any CCBill email confirmation about a subscription signup (or a subscription cancellation). I don't know if this is some problem with my email account, or if this is because of CCBill changing policy. I do check both my regular email and my spam accounts for these confirmations, but do not see them.
Separately, 40+ minutes after signup, still not able to log-on to members area of sexasian18. I click on the "members login" link on the entry page, and nothing appears to happen. What I want is a new page that will accept my username and password so I can get into the members area.
Close the browser page for sexasian18, and try again a few more times, by opening a new browser page, loading the sexasian18 preview page, and selecting the "members login" link. Still no luck. Stuck at the preview page, can't get into the members area.
When I place the mouse pointer over the "members login" hot link, my pointer changes to the finger-hand symbol, showing the link is active. Then I select the "members login" hot link (by clicking on it), and nothing happens. The page does not change in any way, and I can not go on to the next step where I would enter my username and password.
Restart my PC. Open new browser page. Go to sexasian18 and try to login.
Same routine, where I select the "members login" hot link, and apparently nothing happens (except that the "members login" is no longer a hot link, because the mouse pointer no longer changes to the finger-hand symbol when I place the pointer over the words "members login".
Close browser page (because there are no active hot links on the page) of sexasian18, and the page appears dead, can't use the page to change to any other page at the site.
Open new browser window. Clear cookies, cache, browsing history.
Cookies were cleared, because I am now forced to re-log-in to my Yahoo home page, and to re-log-in to Porn Users home page.
Open a page for sexasian18, select the "members login" hot link, same as before: page turns dead, with no hot links.
I will give this a day or so, then cancel my membership if I can't get into the members area.
It's possible the problem is in my computer software/hardware, that is preventing some popup page from appearing and that I am not aware of it. But so far, this is the first paysite that is blocking my access BEFORE I can enter the username and password. And I have joined a number of paysites, and never had this problem before.
Actionjav.com used to have what to me was a confusing pair of membership options - VIP membership was a monthly join of $34.95/month and gave you access to vids in RealPlayer and WMV format. Then they had a DIVX membership that was a bit less expensive, as I recall, and gave those members a set limit of gb to download within a month. Those members were only able to download vids in the DIVX/avi format. Once those members hit their download limit, or the 30 days, whichever came first, their membership was over.
Actionjav.com has now made a change to one membership option - $34.95/month - with access to all content. Those members who had purchased the DIVX membership will have their membership converted to a monthly membership - I don't know if it will automatically renew at the higher price or not. But they might gain a lot if they have been frenetic downloaders and were about to reach their limit and now have the remainder of the 30 days to download to their heart's content without a download limit.
On the downside, they have backed off from their 5 vid update schedule/day - they now promise 4 or 5 updates per day.
I don't know of another site in this genre promising and delivering 4 or 5 complete recent jav's per day, so they haven't killed their site, just making things less confusing membership-wise and saving themselves a bit of money by cutting back a bit on the updates.
