I received a 1/2 off offer to vivthomas.com expiring on August 15th. I tried the link several times and it always came up full price. I tried contacting web support for vivthomas.com to no avail. I love this site and wanted the half-off offer to join, but I don't like getting jerked around by false advertising either. It's a shame. They have great content, but this is a terrible business practice.
Update--The vthelpcenter had replied promptly. I simply have not received the email. Mia culpa. Their customer service was on the ball. Thanks Nick!
The quality of their HD videos is fairly impressive. They look great even at 4 MBit/s. I have seen 8 that does not look any better. They seem to have regular updates for these videos, several per week. Of course, I will do a full review in a few weeks here.
Downloads don't even start. Downloads stop halfway. The site goes down.
I joined 20 hours ago this site and i've barely managed to download 4 videos. Often downloads don't even start or commence, other times when a video is about to be fully downloaded the download stops, thus you can open the file but you can't skip forward the video because you couldn't download the whole file. The site goes down when you try to refresh the site often. So far it's been a very dissapointing experience. Customer support replied, not very fast i must say, stating that they checked the site and there are no problems whatsoever, asking what type of connection do i have or which particular scenes did i have trouble downloading.
I have been a member to: hotlegsandfeet three times; once for a six month stint, ddfbusty, handsonhardcore, and last september to this new network for a month, so i believe that custommer support should be more responsive. The network is great, don't get me wrong, and it should be at the top of the list of any pornuser, yet, this problems are really aggravating, and the REGIONAL PRICING tactics are not welcome.
Meanwhile, i've downloaded big files from other sites without a problem , so, it is not a problem with my connection. I'd like to add that download speeds could be better to.
Having never been a member of any DDF-sites before, I joined yesterday and it quickly dawned on me what a gargantuan task I was in for. The amount of content for a first time visitor to go through is overwhelming, for every four models there's at least one where I'm inclined to get everything just from looking at the portraits.
Originally I signed up just to start my collection of the busty tattooed girl Dominno's videos, but now I've gotten those (btw noticed the issue with the same videos being on several sites, really annoying that you have to carefully compare screenshots to make sure you haven't already got it) and am now facing the challenge of picking out the next models to get from among hundreds of others.
Rather unhelpfully, the search function doesn't seem to work for me it just sends me outside the members area so I have to log in again, clicking a single tag on an update works though, but it doesn't help a lot.
Anyone have some recommendations for models I should be particularly aware of? Not just pretty ones (since a spectacular amount are at least that), but some known to be good enthusiastic performers?
If you follow the cancellation instructions on either the website or the email you receive when subscribing, you cannot cancel.
The cancellation instructions on both the website and in the email I received when I signed up are false.
The email I received states: "To cancel the account please go to the cancel link on our member pages." The link on the tainster.com website is to epoch.com. So I tried to cancel via epoch.com - no record found. The tainster.com site states "Please visit EPOCH.COM, our authorized sales agent," Both the email and the site instructions are false. Epoch is NOT tainster.com's authorized sales agent and it did NOT bill my credit card. Ph-ent.com billed my credit card, and there's no way to cancel via Ph-ent.com.
I tried going to Ph-ent.com to cancel and that leads to a site that only allows the user to ask a question by filling in his name and email address on a web form - no direct cancellation is possible at that site.
I sent an email to tainster's support address and requesting a cancellation and an explanation of the misleading cancellation instructions for publication on TBP. I did get a email confirming the cancellation but no explanation of why the cancellation instructions are false.
Epoch is a trusted billing with a very easy web-based means of canceling. Tainster.com is tricking customers into believing a well known and reliable billing company will be handeling the charge when in fact it uses some obscure biller with no web-based means of cancellation.
Just got a mail:
"Free Membership for Loyal Members"
Then it goes on:
"We've automatically upgraded your old account into a free member account."
Hey, wow - a PU thinks.......and you log in - with your e-mail and new password - BUT: What the f...!!
No way to get anything - then after realizing this is shit - you get the message: Account not found!
"Your subscription has expired! Please feel free to renew your membership on the settings page. As a gift for your loyalty, we are happy to offer a 20% discount on your subscription fee in case you purcase an annual membership."
Man, really - what kind of policy is this........I'll go elsewhere. Jeeeez.
... when I resubscribed to this site. Out of 14 updates across the board this past week, out of 36 sites, 7 were non HD low quality videos. I remember a time when non-HD content was quite good but nowadays the quality appears to have gone downhill.
Not only that, but they stop updating sites arbitrarily. The weekly update for Old Young Lesbian love was due yesterday but never showed up. I know they were toying with the idea of letting this site go to sleep but, in that case, they could at least add a new site to make up for it. Other sites like Zoliboy used to be raunchy but have now switched to much milder material that would be quite at home in its sister site 21Sextury.
In any case the longer I look the more I am appalled that so many of the 36 sites are still producing low quality material. I would now say that this is a good site for a one time subscription only, because a long time subscription will bring a lot of boredom and frustration with it.
This will be my last time with 21Sextreme unless most, if not all, content is being offered in HD in the near future.
Didn't feel like writing a full review, just wanted to note that this site is very disappointing. Though they do not have DRM anymore, and the ability to download a good portion of their magazine archive in pdf format is pretty interesting; the navigation is terrible (looking at the preview would lead you to believe the navigation is pretty good - but the navigation of the member area is very different and significantly worse). Also all their content is not available (yet?). I would not recommend joining this site, especially since a lot of their content is available elsewhere - videobox for example; unless you really want to download the magazine archive, which I guess might be worth it as the TBP price is pretty good.
I'm coming to the end of a month membership and went to cancel. It was a much more frustrating experience than usual so I thought for future members my lessons-learned may be of use.
I'm used to billers like CCBill and Epoch so my default means to cancel is to go to those sites and cancelling is easy. Private's primary biller is Rocket Gate and that's who I was billed through. I went to their site and found nothing for consumers so I Googled "Rocket Gate how to cancel membership" that did take me to a page where I could enter my email and username. The problem is that they had no record of me even though they are the biller. So I emailed them. That was 24 hours ago and I haven't had a response.
The Private site has no link for your account, but at the bottom there is a link for support. That leads to an FAQ page where there is a question about billing. Most of the answer directs you to Rocket Gate, but if you have the same problem as I had then that's not of any use. There is, however, a link to prvtbilling.com. That brings you to a page on the Private website that allows you to enter your username and email address. That worked.
I should also note that I didn't receive a confirmation email when I joined. Those often contain cancellation information. I first thought that could have screwed up my email address when I joined and that would explain the lack of a confirmation email and the inability for the biller to recognize me, but since the Private site itself recognized the email address I'd say I wasn't at fault.
My final advice is that since your membership remains active for the month even after you cancel I recommend trying to cancel early in case you do have problems.
I joined MPLstudios with a 90 day membership. This looked to be a marriage made in heaven. MPL had lots of beautiful young women posing in pics and vids. The pics and vids were about average in quality compared to other sites. Met-Art.com they were not!
When I entered the membership area I was greeted with a warning that I was limited to 3 GB of content in a 24 hour period. By todays broadband standards that content can be dled in about an hour and a half.
OK, they should have warned me before I joined about the dl limits. If I'd known then I could have declined.
Still I wasted no time downloading pics and movies.
I use IE7 and I downloaded 2 streams at a time. The sites security blocked me after about 2 gigs of dls. I was blocked for about a day during which time I sent several e-mails complaining that I was blocked. No response.
Later security warned me not to use download managers and the 3 gigs dl limit.
Since I have never used a dl manager I was confused. But I was unblocked and I started dling again. I got about another 1.5 gigs before I was blocked again.
MPL does not allow 2 dl streams and I was told to dl one stream at a time.
The next day I dled another 2.5 gigs before I was blocked again.
By then I had about 80 hours invested and less than 7 gigs of content. I sent another e-mail and I got no response. After about 24 hours I was notified that my account was cancelled.
To this day I am unsure why.
Here's a letter I just sent ccBill within 20 minutes of joining MPL Studios. PU Sysadmin, there isn't really a forum here to discuss account management systems, so I'm dropping this on the related website in the hope that both companies will notice. CCbill is generally MUCH better than the other account managers, but lately, I've had a lot of problems with them.
Here's the letter.
I’ve been happy to use ccBill and have been trusting you as a billing provider for years. Check my email address and you will see a history that is as long as your business has existed. But lately, service has gotten so poor that I am uncertain if joining a site that uses ccBill is worth it.
Tonight I joined MPL Studios for the first time. Not only did ccBill generate a RANDOM password and username, which I hate enough to cancel subscriptions over, but the lsgmodels login pop-up prevented me from toggling back and forth from the ccbill username page to the login. When I finally opened ccBill in a different browser and was able to get the insane user name and password info, the MPL Studios site would not let me in. I can only assume that I exceeded some kind of login attempt limit imposed by you.
Look, you guys are among the better account administrators out there, but I recently cancelled my subscription to met-art because I attempted to log in on several occasions and was unable to because YOUR login servers were down. I cancelled a subscription to Watch 4 Beauty because the random password was soo damn difficult to deal with, I gave up.
As a 20 year IT professional, I understand the importance of security, etc. You are going to tell me something like “the host web site required...” Bullcrap. As a leading service provider, you are in a position to explain to the host that random passwords cause them to lose customers. And a lockout after a certain number of attempts should redirect me to YOUR site to reset the account, not leave me mad enough to cancel the account immediately. In the end, any web based service must satisfy two needs to be successful. It must be convenient and it must be reliable. Random passwords make your service incredibly inconvenient and the inability of a user in good standing to log in to a site he/she paid for makes your service unreliable.
PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES!!
And while you are at it, unlock my account on MPL Studios so I can use the account I JUST PAID FOR!
Now, after I wrote this letter, I went ahead and called ccBaill. They told me that MPL Studios will not allow them to reset passwords that get locked out and that only they can do it. So now I'm sitting here witha paid subscription I cannot use. I will be sneding a letter to MPL Studios, as well, and I have already cancelled my brand new subscription because no website should subject thier customers to this kind of nonsense.
As was reported by Viv Thomas, Eve Angel no longer has anything to do with this site. As myself and others have pointed out, the site is now recycling old Eve content by removing the content from the archives and selling it as new content. So there will be no more new Eve content on here. The site also have lost its 100% exclusivity. As several sets have now shown up on Teen Dreams and even worse, they have sold enough of the Eve content to another webmaster, that has enable this other one to open the site Marina Mendoza, which also has no connection to Eva, except that it has her content from this site on it.
I personally thought Eve had retired, but it looks more like she was the victim of a webmaster screwing her over. She does have some new content that has been showing up on the Teen Dream Network on the Sweet Eva site and new content that Viv has been releasing on his site. It looks like she is still around, just not as much as she used to be when this site first took off.
I thought I would post to warn others who have been members before. If you a potential new member, the site is easily worth the price of a month subscription because of the 200+ Eve videos and picture sets, but to a returning member looking for new sets, it just isn't going to happen.
I have just watched the release from 9th of September(Larisa).
I must say that I am really disappointed. The video is like a sample video, finishes suddenly without a cumshot. "The 'blow' for this is coupled to the sex videos in her next release" I read at the description for the set when I searched for answers why I got only a trailer style vid as a fullmember. So stay tuned for a couple of months? I guess I will definetely not, sorry
The download speed problem has been fixed for about a week now so that should be fine.
I was going through my old content from the DDF sites that I had joined in the past. I noticed that Aneta Keys had some scenes missing from the DDF Prod site. It's a very big deal to me since the review is on DDF Prod and it's not effectively showing all of the possible content on the DDF sites. Here are the numbers.
Aneta on DDF Prod has 16 scenes showing, meaning 16 videos and 16 photo sets.
If you go to each of the sites DDF Prod lists as having content of Aneta on their network, you will find these numbers.
That is a total of 30 photo sets and 29 videos on the network though DDF Prod only shows 16 of each. Mind you, there are some sets that are on more than one site, but there are some completely left off DDF Prod. The only reason the subtraction is not more is because they are hurting themselves! If you go to each site the model is listed at you can get more content than they are showing the model having. The reason for any deduction is that DDF Prod was supposed to make the network easier to use, it does, but if it doesn't show all the content is it really that helpful?
Having been unceremoniously dropped by DDFProd (the expiration date on my credit card in the biller's records passed so they simply disabled my account rather than notify me that they needed a new date) I tried to sign up for a new membership using the PU/TBP deal shown as $29.95 per month.
Using the PU link to the site the monthly price is now $38.95.
I suggest that PU change the listing to reflect this increase. Better yet, if PU can encourage DDFProd to return to their original price of $29.95, that would be awesome.
Just noticed on eurobabeindex theres an actress called LENKA and it states she is on a new site called met-hc but can't find out anymore. Be great if they did, met art is great but would love to see the models getting on a seperate site a little more harder and getting down with each other in a more hardcore way.
Has anyone had issues not getting access to their sites? Have not been able to access since 06-13-13. If my account was blocked you'd think I could at least access the site for support. Any help is appreciated
I've been told that Private has discontinued the evil DRM technology.
Can anyone here confirm this?
Well, I just took a look inside the site and they do have a banner that states "No DRM'. That would be a great thing, why don't I trust it? LOL
OK---I went back in, and it seems to me the downloads are their videos. And you have to purchase the download, for at least $18.95! But it has no DRM. Looks like they just won't let go of the sucker born every minute mentality that has polluted porn for so long.
This site simply does not work for me.After about 2 minutes Downloads freeze ,the website freezes, every link I click on says there's a connection problem,server timeouts etc.
And this happens to me only on Vivthomas.com no matter what browser I use.
Maybe its only users from Japan that have this problem.
I WANT A REFUND!
Their support sucks I did not see any contact info for the few minutes I could logon there.Just a help desk with some ticket system and since I can't login there I have not been able to use it.
Was browsing around the "latest" at Mya Diamond and got a spell of déjà vü. In August '07, there's gallery of Lora Craft called "Deep Pleasure," but I'd already gotten it from this same site in early 2006. I'd filed it as "Deep Pleasure" too.
Then I noticed: this site started in Sept. 2005, but now the archives begin in Feb. 2006.
Does this recycling of content really matter, though? For some folks, I'm sure it doesn't. Yet, anyway.
