A “head’s up” if adding Public Invasion through Bang Bros
Public Invasion is a stand-alone Bang Bros site that you can join for $25 per month. If you join this way I don’t know what network access you get. If you join the BB network through the main portal you have the option of adding Public Invasion for $10. That sounds like a good deal, but it isn’t. The main site has 189 scenes available while the ‘site’ you can join for $10 only has 30 scenes. Obviously BB can charge what it wants, but nothing I saw when I joined through the BB portal indicated I was getting limited access, and the cost per episode is more than double on the add-on site.
Having said all that, if you’re a fan of public stuff, as I am, my advice is to save your money on both sites. There really isn’t much ‘public’ material here, at least not in the 30 scenes I had access to. The site really offers Eastern European models (most unknown to me) flashing a bit outdoors when no one is looking and then the action moves to a more secluded spot for oral and intercourse. This really shouldn’t be tagged as ‘public’ but rather as ‘outdoor.’
I've been an on-and-off visitor of Bangbros since about 2005. I've never thought it was perfect (too many dudes mugging for the camera), but I always came back for the bottom line - BEAUTIFUL GIRLS GETTING NASTY. It was a great website for seeing beautiful, everyday chicks getting fucked dirty.
But lately when I follow the updates, I see little reason to join. Most of the girls look like nightclub hoes or strippers. There are too many fake tits. The few sites that were still bringing in cute chicks, like Facial Fest, seem to have stopped updating. Plus, these guys couldn't find a real MILF if their lives depended on it. All the mature ladies look like mid-life crisis strippers.
The network looks like a cheezy rap video now (that applies to all the races - white, black, latina, etc). I know it was always fake, but I miss the days when the chicks actually looked like coeds. :(
I'm not really sure what happened, and I'm not blaming Bang Bros for this, I merely want to add this in case someone else has a similar issue or if someone might find this useful.
I joined the site a couple of weeks ago and within 20 minutes my credit card company called me. They were concerned that this was an unknown company charging my card. I told them everything was fine but they suggested putting a block on future charges. Two days later I go back to the site and my membership won't work. I check my credit card and see that I was only charged a small amount and assumed that I had somehow got a trial membership. No big deal.
But today I checked my credit card again and two weeks ago (a week or so after I initially joined) there was another Bang Bros charge. So I tried the membership again and it works.
I'm not concerned, yet, because this doesn't appear to be a billing problem.
Still, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for no more issues.
I had a membership here recently which turned out to be only a trial (which I didn't think existed) so I only downloaded 50 or so scenes so this is based on those scenes only, but in about 20% of those there are audio problems. The problem is that the audio and video aren't synchronized. The scenes start out fine but by the end it appears that they're off my as much as a minute. This is with the WMV files and I can't say if it exists for other formats too. I'll admit that I only have a small sample of scenes available on this site, but a 20% problem with the ones I have can't be a mere coincidence. I joined the site to get a rare Tanner Mayes anal scene and it's one of the worst for audio problems that I downloaded.
Unsynchronized audio is a personal pet peeve of mine and enough to ensure I never rejoin the site.
This is one of those learn from my mistake posts. Bang Bros are now offering more than 10 different addon packs, but you can only add them for the special prices once you're inside the members area of Bang Bros. Their biller, while not real well known, has never given me a problem and the biller itself replies to any problems with 24 hours from my experience. I had signed up for Bang Bros then added the Super Pack. When I went to cancel, I canceled "Bang Bros" from the support page. That didn't fully work. It canceled the Super Pack, but not the Bang Bros membership. After I went back and looked, after an email to their biller, there was a second membership listed on my account, which was Bang Bros itself. I hadn't canceled it. They could do better with this by listing the Super Pack as Super Pack and not Bang Bros, but I could have clicked the drop down box to see two accounts too.
So if you add anything besides Bang Bros, be sure when canceling to use the drop down menu to see the other accounts so you can cancel them too. In a way, I felt like this is misleading, but in another way, I can see how maybe someone would just want to cancel the addons, but keep Bang Bros, so it's iffy as to how you take this practice.
I am very disappointed by Bang Bros, I am sorry but they like to charge your credit cards without your approval, they are very good at taking you money.
If you are logged through your members area, you have a cookie on your computer.
All the sites you may browse from their network (by typing directly the official URL, so outside of the members area), even if you just want to see the prices with their join now pages, will automatically detec this cookie, and if you click on the join now page without approval (I mean, from the homepage -> Join now), you won't have the choice and you will be automatically billed a free trial
this is deceiving practices I will never pay go back to this network! one click and you are charged... it's just amazing.
The URL that do automatical signup is:
even if you browse directly from the official URLS of the sites, ex you go through CFNMSHOW.COM, you click join now and *paf* you are added a subscription.
The company just refunded me the disputed charge without questions. At least they know what to do when problems happen with these cookied cross-sells...
So just be careful where you click with their websites...
Some of the content is good so it's a shame that they have those things in place...
If Bangbros don't watch themselves they'll end up tying Brazzers record for enhanced breasts. I can't count the updates I've had to ignore because of the bolt-on factor since I subscribed again this time. The subscription certainly won't be recurring .. that's how much I dislike these grotesque mutilations.
Another thing I have noticed about their latest updates, and that is that many scenes now start out with the model naked or almost naked and already in the middle of the action, while the picture sets show them starting out fully clothed. This is a major con for me because I always liked the gradual build up, as short as it was, in sites like Bangbros, Reality Kings and Brazzers. Why snip the fully clothed part and leave it on the cutting room floor when so many would enjoy a short strip.
Things must have changed at Bang Bros. Contrary to what's written above, to join costs $ 14.95 a month, however, after that, monthly renewal is at $ 24.95 US. If you hit the Join now button on the top right of the page you will be taken to another page that will list the subscription price for one month. Please be aware that you will not renew at this price. The renewal is, as mentioned above, $ 24.95. It's in the fine print below the red sign on button near the bottom.

I am happy to see that Porn Users have adjusted their listing for the price of a monthly subscription to $ 14.95. I am even more pleased to see that if you follow right through to Bangbros. actual sign-up page that the $ 14.95 is now recurring and NOT one-time. It's in the fine print! :-)
Bang Bros won't stop trying to improve their site long enough for my comments to be still valid.
Not that I'm complaining. They seem to have completed their move to a completely new format, maybe the one I had seen several months ago was a beta version?
The new format is even more of an improvement. Now when you click on a scene every single option is right there on that scene's page. There's no need to click to go to pictures or screencaps, it's all together. Maybe they have a programmer who is as OCDC as I am and decided to make everything neatly laid out. You can from the scene's page, download the full scene in different formats, these do vary some from scene to scene but the general formats are high (WMV), medium (MP4), small (MP4) and Mobile. The newer scenes add an HD option as well.
These are all accessed from a drop-down menu when you click download. Over from the movie download link is a pictures drop down box that lets you either view or download the pictures and screencaps.
Now leave it alone lol! It's perfect like Rebecca Linares butt.
Also I know it has been asked if they still have the 30 or more parts for individual download, the answer is yes, but you have to click on "chapters" to get to those.
They also now offer an add-on package. This is similar to Videobox having the "channels". This add-on they offer includes these sites, Dancing Bear, College Rules, My GF and CFNM Show. These sites do pretty good as standalone sites, but you can now add them into your membership for $24.95. I don't know any other way to get those 4 sites for this price, but it does look a really good deal if you are interested in those sites.
I've noticed all the current reviews still make notice that there are so many options to watch/download the videos which I like. I did see on a recent review that you can still download in parts.
Question: Do they also still have the 1-minute downloads (where there are like 40 1-minute clips) or do you only have the option of 4 separate parts to a scene? I haven't been a member in over a year and loved the option to just download a 1-minute clip that was a few mbs instead of downloading Part 3 that was 100mb, etc.
I am normally a HD whore and download the highest quality versions of all scenes that I can get my hands on. This is usually simple, when a scene is marked HD it is, if not HD source, at least high quality. At BangBros, however, I am dumbfounded by the dishonest use of HD labeling.
Every scene in the network has a download labeled HD. While technically they are HD videos being 1280 x 720 or 1024 x 768 @ 3 MBPS the reality is very, very different. For all of the older scenes that were not filmed in HD or no HD source is available they have just taken the god awful 320 x 240 WMV files and re-encoded them to h264 HD resolution. As anyone who knows anything about video encoding will tell you, you put garbage in, you get garbage out. So what does this mean? Well, not only does the HD video look awful, but some scenes are up to 2GB in size! The "HD" video looks no better than downloading the WMV, which is 10 times smaller by the way, and watching it full screen which looks so bad it makes my eyes bleed. To make matters EVEN worse, there is no way of knowing what videos truly are HD and which videos are these hack job re-encodes.
I have seen dishonest practices but this really does take the piss. I have lost confidence in them as I cant download the scenes with confidence that the quality will be good without wasting massive amounts of bandwidth. With other networks like Porn Pros, Brazzers or Naughty America producing similar content without the HD lie I wont be keeping a membership here and I urge anyone that cares about quality to think twice before joining. I used to like BangBros, this is such a huge disappointment :(
I realise ages ago I rated this site without a comment. I agree with the earlier reviewer that this site promises so much, in terms of "real life" tapes. But you'd really have to have arrived from a different planet to believe some of these guys are straight, and that this is not staged...
At first, I wasn't too happy with the new design at Bang Bros. It worked really good, makes the site less cluttered, but the screenshot sips and part of the photo zips were not downloading. In their defense, they did have a note up that they knew everything wasn't working right and it would be fixed shortly. It was fixed within 24 hours. So now, they have really improved the functionality of their site.
The other good news, may just be for me, the model some of us know as Abella Anderson, one of the few models I have recommended to other members on here, once had a solo site called Living with Anna.
I don't know when Bang Bros added it to their network, it is just an archive site now, but this is some really great content of her with some of it coming before her implants. The amount of content of her on it isn't that great, but the totals are: 35 videos, 35 photo sets, 35 screenshot zips.
Up until now I had only been able to find 1-2 scenes of her on different sites and only had a total of 18 scenes, so this site being thrown in to the Bangbros Network, added a big boost for me since it nearly doubled my entire collection of her content.
A few other sites I hadn't seen on here before. Ava Spice. This is a tiny site with only 5 videos, 5 photo sets, 5 screencap sets, but this is yet another site where it looks like Bang Bros adds these no longer updating solo sites to their network as a nice little bonus.
Also there is a Bang Bros Remastered site that has 15-20 remastered sets from the early days of the Bang Bus.
I had first noticed Bang Bros doing this adding of sites that had gone out of business when they added the archived content from The Penny Show. Considering they are still adding new updates to their regular sites and with the much improved navigation in the new site design, it's still easily recommended and even more so if you like finding content like the Living With Anna content.
Just to update Scnitzel's comment below, the last update on this site was posted in November 2006.
If you are interested in the site, it comes with a membership in the Bang Bros main site and, while there was no HD in 2006 (or earlier) the site has made a good effort at upgrading many of their offerings by remastering the old stuff into HD.
The babes and the wedgies are still erection setting, so the site is worth joining for first time members of the site who, as I, enjoy pussy flossing.
Unable to log-in despite typing correctly both US & PW time and again.
Today i tried to log-in and i couldn't. Then, i went on to retype both my US & PW -having checked previously if they were right and if my subcription was still active, which it was- countless times. Afterwards, i proceeded to write an email to custome service. Well, they provided me with new US's and PW's to no avail. I still can't enter the site.
The following happens, when i try to join Bangbros from a european country (i would bet similar will occur for any country with non US-Dollar currency too):
- Bangbros tells me the price for monthly membership: 24.95 USD
- After hitting the button to proceed, i am directed to the Epoch site for credit card information, which is showing me the price for monthly membership now in my local currency (Euro): 27.47 EUR
As of todays exchange rate, 27.47 EUR equals to 36.30 USD. This is 11.35 USD more than what Bangbros listed me as the price in the first place.
I wonder who will receive this extra 11.35 USD, Bangbros or Epoch? Needless to say, that this currency trickery doesn't really support their otherwise good reputation. Other sites/billers go well by just charging USD or whatever their currency is, leaving the exchange to be appropriately done by the credit card company (Visa, Mastercard etc).
Contacting both Bangbros and Epoch support by email (1 month ago) at least gave me one reply from Bangbros to join by the reduced rate, which is also available through this site (and which seems to convert to Euro more accurate). Epoch didn't reply up to today.
I just read the review by Duke and the site sounds interesting. HOWEVER, how can they have a daily download limit of 500 MB? The site facts say that the WMV files are 300 to 500 MB and the MP4 files are 600 to 900 MB. Does that mean I can't download the MP4 files and can download at most 1 video a day of WMV? And this is without using a download manager mind you.
I've been subscribing to Bangbros.com for five years now. I really got off to the last fifty pages of the site but it seemed as time went on, the women kept getting more fake. I can deal with the fake boobs, but fake asses?, stretched skin?, and extreme wide-angle lenses? Come on. I'll go on record to say that the last fifty pages of women on this site turned me on back then but they need to get some different niches.
For all the current subscribers, I have a question about the site. Is there a scene or scenes with Sandy Sweet in the site? They have a pic of her with the words "Staff Picks," but when I look her up, she doesn't show. Just wanted to know.
