As it was said in my review, I had very bad experience with Karups. First of all I believe that it is cheating on billing. Second, the quality is poor. Even recent photos look like they were made 15 years ago. The most of the vdeos are unfocused and filmed with terrbly overused close-up. So do not pay for nothing
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.
I have been joining Kink.com sites for at least a decade and in the past have found it at the top of the pack in quality of service. Suddenly 2 or 3 days ago my downloads (normally 800-1200 KB/s) screeched to school zone speed (42 KB/s) which is useless since I don't care to stay connected for 6 hours for the download of one scene.
Downloads from other non-Kink sites seem normal (a sample from firm hand spanking downloaded at 500 KB/s which is normal for their site), so I can't blame my computer, browser, or Internet service provider.
E-mailed them Friday, but no reply because of the holiday weekend. Just curious if anyone else has experienced problems with Kink.com these last few days. Would appreciate knowing that I'm not alone.
I've been a member for about 6 months now. The product is unique and enjoyable. As the reviewer noted it can easily get expensive.
The software is free. They make money by selling shows which they call cards. A card consists of 15-20 individual clips all of the same model in the same costume. Each clip is from 15 seconds to about 3 minutes in length. Some clips are fully clothed. Some clips are strip tease. Some start naked. Some have props like a dance pole. Typically, they will hire one model to create 5-6 cards during a 2-3 day recording session. They release about 5 new cards every week. Most cards are solo acts, but they have a few pairs.
There are a variety of ways to buy cards. A subscription will get you a random choice of cards each week, not simply the newest. This is the cheapest per card, but you have no choice. The most expensive way to get cards is to buy them at full price, $2 per. There is a middle ground. All cards eventually rotate through a demo area where you can sample some short fully clothed clips and buy the cards a half price. I've bought most of my cards through the demo route.
One of the other comments here was that customer service is nonexistent. That's not quite right, but it is not very responsive. However, the forum on the web site has very helpful moderators. Before you spend a lot of money, visit the forum and read some of the message threads. The web site also lists all the available models and shows so you can get a good idea of what's out there.
Over the years, they have improved the technical quality of the cards. The original cards were 480p of vertical resolution. These are now essentially obsolete, but some "best of" collections are still available as "classic" cards. The oldest regular cards are 720p. For the past 2 years all cards were recorded in 1080p. These start at about card 600. However, they were released at 720p. Since about card 900, all new cards have been released at both 720 and 1080. They are now reediting and rereleasing the cards between 600 and 900 in 1080p. They claim and the newest cards have been recorded at about 1600p and that they will be releasing 1600p versions of those cards real soon now.
Other than improving the resolution of the cards, they have been very slow to add new features. The web forum is full of requests and recommendations for improving the product, but very little seems to have been done over the 6 month's I've been present. However, as a software developer myself, I must admit that adding new functions and testing them is time consuming. It is clear to me that they have a very limiting software development staff.
The software essentially presents clips (not cards) in random order. It is possible to make playlists of selected cards to control what you see, but not much more. However, there is third-party software that will let you create multi-clip shows to more exactly suit your tastes.
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.
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.
I've recently started subscribing to sites for a year at a time because, after doing the math, I realize I spend that much at my favorite sites anyway and the longer memberships are usually great values. Usually...except...not with nubiles.net. A 1 year membership with Nubiles WITH the PU discount is $209.00!!! $209??? Wow, that is a lot! A regular, undiscounted 1 year membership with Met Art is $99. Femjoy: $99. MC Nudes: $99. Twisty's: $119. Als Scan: $139. There are a couple of sites that charge $150 or so for a 1 year membership, but very, very few that charge $209. Since there is no real incentive for me to sign up for a year (3 months free compared to others 6 months free), I guess I will have to join for a month or two and then quit for awhile like I used to do. Oh well... A pain for me and a loss of revenue for them.
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.
Just wanted to let you know that Private is at present offering a 2 days trial, but it only allows you to view and download 5 episodes of your choice. It also reminds you continually (and annoyingly) that you can access everything by upgrading.
The site has a price of $29.95, not $34.95 per PU/TBP. If, after launching the preview site, you close it out without signing up, you will be offered a 20% discount to join. That yields a price of $23.96.
The PU price of $34.95 does not show up on the join page.
Nothing. Sadly this site is completely untouched. There is a slight redesign, but no new content. In fairness, I think I remember reading somewhere the Dylan is retired - but I'd have thought they might have acquired some of her other content.
I rejoined to see how things were now that OpenLife took over this site.
I still love Ashley and her great content. However updates are still too infrequent. There were some nice updates and I feel I got my money's worth - but the update schedule will definitely leave you wanting more.
In recent months they have been splitting their photo sets up in to 2 or 3 parts so instead of a complete photo set every day you now only get a half or third of a photo set for your daily update and usually have to wait 1 to 2 weeks to complete the set. A disappointing development for one of my once favourite sites.
I've never been a member at this site and likely never will be. I was surprised at the number of people who reported the same problems over and over. And I was really surprised that the webmaster seemed so concerned and involved yet nothing ever got resolved. If it was the site, shame on them. If it was the biller, then the site should have severed that relationship quickly.
The sad part is that this looks like it might be a case of a good and unique site being destroyed by a third-party biller.
Two thumbs up for the TBP/PU staff in deciding to de-list them.
I am seriously fed up with this company! Warning! DO NOT JOIN!
Since the date I joined last month I wanted to cancel my membership so it did not recur. I have been trying and trying and trying to cancel it over and over to no avail! I am about to be billed again in a week and I can not afford it. They also signed me up to myporndownloads.com, which I did not realize until my membership was processed and confirmed. I am stuck with two fucking bills I can not repeatedly pay. I have only gotten an automated message from centrobill (once, out of the many times I tried to contact them) saying they would be in contact with me soon. This was about two weeks ago and I have heard nothing. I sent a message to customer support at the germangoogirls.com website as well and it took several days until I finally got a response. I got a message from Marie, in an unprofessional manner, asking me to stay longer and I said no, that I wanted both my subscriptions cancelled. I was told that, if confirming my request to cancel, I would be assured the fastest response possible and I have not heard shit from them since the date I got that email. I was not even told that it would be cancelled after my reply, only that I would be 'assured the fastest response.' Either these people are frauds or they are fucking idiots and I am tired of the stress I have been carrying with me over the possibility of being billed again when I can not afford another charge to their website! Do not sign up to germangoogirls.com, or any website that uses centrobill! Complete unprofessional frauds that will steal your money! Be warned!
