Yes, I know that I should have noticed the warning on the TBP page, but I didn't. And to make matters worse the biller (FX Billing) lumps your agreement to buy adult material in with the cross-sell. I'm not sure if you could even join without getting the cross-sell because you need to tick the box to affirm you're legal to buy porn.
Not knowing that I had signed up for another site, I also didn't cancel it right away and got rebilled today. The site is NS Premium, which has some affiliation with New Sensations. Here's the thing though: after being charged $40 on the rebill I go to the site to find out that when I try to download anything I get a message that I'm not a valid member and that I now need to buy an upgrade!
I had an online chat with the biller and they've not yet agreed to refund the $40. My preference would be a refund, but I'd even accept a functioning membership for that price.
Make sure you try uncheck the box if trying to join Bikini Dare. If you can't join without accepting the cross-sell, then don't join Bikini Dare at all. It isn't worth the hassle.
Went to sign up and saw no evidence of encryption. It says 100% Secure Server & Confidential Transaction, but there's no https, no "lock symbol"...nothing. Asking for a credit card number without any security? NOT happening!
Love the site! Tired of all the "produced porn", you do provide some awesome stuff, so hat's off to you! However, I do have some complaints:
1. Model naming is very inconsistent. Choose one girl in one shoot, she's called another name in the next shoot etc.(I know it's hard to keep track of all the girls you and other's shot and then to then encode and publish it, but if you have the option to browse by model on your site, you might want to add some attention to that)
2. An option to disable autoplay of the videos when entering a model's page would be appreciative. It would save your bandwith as well I think.
3. Update the design. I don't care that much for it really, but it's looking old!
4. SPEED! Download speed is kind of slow (200-500 kb/s), and there seems to be a limit of simultaneous downloads.
Iím a huge fan of public nudity and was pleasantly surprised to see this site since it is actually a rare site in a rare niche. This site features well-known American porn stars doing some relatively risky public nudity.
The site has 18 scenes with some well known models doing public nudity in the Los Angeles area. Stars such as Taylor Rain, Gen Padova, Violet Blue, Courtney Simpson and Desire Moore make appearances. There is public nudity in some relatively secure-but-still-public areas and most scenes also include the model performing oral sex on one of the guys. The site no longer updates and the newest scenes are likely from 2005 to maybe 2007. This, unfortunately, is where the good news ends.
I find that public nudity sites can be hit or miss. I realize this is subjective but some sites manage to remove all the tease and risk from public nudity, thereby turning the heat way down too. Such is the case here, but the heat gets further turned down by the fact that the cameraman is clearly an amateur Ė the camera work is jerky to the point that if you have a weak stomach you might want to avoid these videos. To make matters worse, the models are often filmed while standing in the shadows so lighting becomes a serious flaw. To top it all off, the editing can be pretty bad too with too many potentially interesting bits obviously cut out.
But it gets worseÖ assuming the videos were shot several years ago and realizing that technology continues to advance, then even by the standards of the year these were shot they are well below the norm. The videos come in at just 320x240 at 330kb/s and only 8fps. Surely these specs were state of the art more than a decade ago. The low resolutions combined with the jerky camera work make a lot of the scenes essentially unwatchable.
And continuing on our cavalcade of crap, the scenes are only offered as clips with no option to download the entire scene as one complete video. The only potential good news is that by offering clips only you might not realize that the download speeds are up to a decades-old standard too. I havenít seen download speeds this slow in years. The average speed I got was about 130kb/s. Thatís KILOBYTES, not megabytes. I saw speeds drift down to double digits frequently.
I always try to find something positive about any site I join, but thereís really nothing good to say about this site. The one possible positive Ė big-name American porn models doing public nudity in Los Angeles Ė is vastly overshadowed by poor camera work, poor lighting, poor editing, abysmal download speeds and the lack of full-video availability.
The last possible positive also falls flat: this could have just been a bad site in an otherwise good network, but the rest of the network (Hush Pass) isnít much better. So even if youíre a big fan of public nudity like I am, trust me on this: donít bother joining this network.
Before I left the site a few months ago, it had not updated in months. I have a feeling the site may have changed ownership.
I also noticed an additional $1 being withdrawn from my account by bfbsupport.com*- 800 376 4333, on several occasions at about the same time Midnight Prowl took their money via #4 svgsupport.com*- 866 525 1343, despite the fact I had not initiated any such transactions.
About a month or so after I left the Midnight Prowl, $39.99 was withdrawn from my account by MMLSUPPORT.COM* 8778069289, again, despite my never having made such a transaction.
Immediately I knew an unauthorized person was using my card and suspected my details had leaked out in some manner due to my membership of Midnight Prowl, given the timescale and the nature of the unauthorised transactions, pornography. I know that I did not unintentionally sign up to anything because I am always very mindful of that trick.
I cancelled my card immediately and am in the process of getting the money returned.
In its heyday, the Meat Members product was very good despite less than optimal video quality and navigation. The content was original and they where fearless. Now it has been watered down, updates are sporadic and there is more filler, as opposed to original content. Midnight Prowl has also lost a lot of its grit and originality. A lot of the guys they use appear to be established actors or mopes and are recognizable from other sites and videos.
Most importantly, I cannot even trust the site anymore, given what happened to my credit card. Information I gained from scamadviser.com has led me to believe Meat Members membership is unsafe. I would advise people to tread very carefully and pay close attention to their financial statements if they decide to risk it.
Having signed up for a trial I was astonished to see that I could only watch 3 movies. This proved way too optimistic. Every time I clicked something I got the message that I had one less movie to watch and should upgrade. After a few futile attempts I had no movies left and seen nothing.
Not only crooks but very stupid ones into the bargain, because there is no way I'll ever go near them again.
As a past member of Dancing Bear, I read with interest Maggie's review (TBP) of this site on 1st February 2012.She mentions in the review,almost casually ,"and downloading as wmvs and mp4s in four different sizes".Through my experience,and as the above comments will attest, this site did not allow downloads in it's formative years.If,in fact Dancing Bear now permits downloads, I feel that as a porn review site TBP,should make it very clear that even though this site did not originally allow downloads,they now do allow them.While this may appear slightly trivial,as a porn user,and I am sure many will concur,I will not join a site that does not allow downloads.Also,as a frequent visitor to the TBP site and admirer of their reviews,I have been waiting for a review of Dancing Bear's "sister" site Horny Birds.The review was scheduled for 26th January 2012,but TBP have had trouble accessing the site.I will be very interested to see if they now allow downloads.I am not a great believer in what I read on website join-up pages,hence my need to read clear,informative and accurate reviews and user comments from TBP and Porn Users.
Types of Public Disgrace shoots makes interesting content
Public disgrace is still a very interesting site where pretty girls get a public fucking, often with a dose of BDSM.
It now breaks down into two types of shoots. One is where the girl is led around naked in a public place for many minutes and eventually gets fucked in a more semi-public area like a park. In these shoots there seems to be a lot of emphasis on the public reaction to the naked girl and the eventual naked sex by passers-by (seems to be in Europe where the public nudity laws are not like the USA). To be honest, this is fast-forward time for me and I feel the flaunting of nudity and sex in front of pedestrians, some of whom who would rather not see it, is problematic and not particularly sexy.
On the other hand, many shoots are inside, in porn shops or other small establishments or in the San Fransisco Kink.com Armory with an enthusiastic invited crowd. These scenes seem to be a lot hotter in my opinion and I really enjoy the crowd reaction enjoying the hot fucking.
A definitely interesting site with a "twist" from your everyday porn.
Another price issue... looks like this site has recently had a price rise; all reviews I see for it seem to show $19.95 but the only price I see on the site is $29.95. I'm quite keen to join, but would be even keener if it was $10 lower!
I joined the network a few days ago. The videos are of extremely low quality and the content is weak. A ten minute video I tried had maybe 10 seconds of interesting content. But between the low quality, outdoor oversaturation, and being shot from too far away, I cannot recommend this site even as an extra in a network.
I've had this site on my radar for a few years. The thing that keeps me from joining is that the front page/tour hasn't changed in that year. So my question is, is the site still updating? Or does anyone know?
My membership to Bikini Dream is working again and I got into that site. Several of the sites that the TBP review says are linked to Bikini Dream through a membership are actually listed on that site specifically as being bonus sites. However, my username and password still donít work. To make matters worse, Iím now only allowed to failed attempts at a log in (using the link they provide in their own site) before my membership gets disabled.
The trial membership is still decent value if you want softcore bikini videos and photos, but donít join for the bonus sites as you may be disappointed.
Everything I wrote about Bikini Dream in my review remains accurate, but some of my comments about the network need to be clarified. Within the Bikini Dream site there are links to the sites that make up the network. I canít confirm which they are. More on that below.
I used the TBP review page to access the sites and they list 17 sites as being available some of which (now, at least) are not part of the network. I was able to get access to Bikini Dream, Stunners, Ashlyn Brooke and All Anal XXX. I was not able to get access to Busty Cafť, Internal Violations, Stolen Porn Videos, Our Homemade Porno and Real Hidden Porn with my membership. To make matters worse, attempting to access all those sites caused my username and password to be blocked even from the sites that I did have access to. Apart from the sites I've listed I can't confirm access to the others as my membership was deactivated.
If my membership works again Iíll post a confirmed list of available sites on this network.
I've been back and forth to this site probably a dozen times over the last few weeks considering joining it. The public part interests me a lot, but I notice in some of the samples, there's quite a bit of bondage/pain in the scenes. I'm pretty familiar with Kink's sites and have liked the ones I have joined, but I'm curious about the disgracing part and to what extent it goes. I know Kink had one site, don't remember the exact name to make a link that had to do with water torture and thought it was too harsh for me to enjoy. I guess it's one of those things where the models obviously consent to it and I can convince my brain of that, but I can't find sexual stimulation from seeing a woman being hurt physically whether with her consent or not. Also am wondering how believable the sets are. Which is the only constant problem I've had with Kink sites and that is repetitiveness. Thanks in advance for any info.
