I have been a continuous subscriber to 21st Sextury since 2009. It was one of the best sites around. Just 10 bucks a month and always a lot of good new material whenever I logged on.
So looking at the last 6 months or so I can just say: "What the heck happened?"
This site has gone completely sideways:
* First there was the godawful new design. The old design was simple, clean and efficient. The new one is bloated, buggy, annoying and a general design disaster.
* Then there was the video formats: no more WMV videos. I was told it was "obsolete". Maybe so, but that is what works best for me and is what I prefer as a customer.
Still, I could live with the design horror and the technical deficiencies if the material was still good. But not so:
* The missing photosets. Since 2010 or so there had always reliably been hi res photos with each set, now it seems mostly hit and miss.
* The photography quality itself has deteriorated greatly. Photos used to be super sharp, good lighting and color contrast, etc. Highly professional stuff, some of the best around. What do we have now? Blurry and washed out looking pictures seems to be the new norm.
* Hi res pictures when they do exist at all look like basic blownups of the low res stuff, sometimes you can even see the scaling artifacts.
What the hell is all this? Can't they or won't they invest enough in staff and equipment to keep the quality up?
I will be dropping my subscription if this nonsense doesn't change soon. Never mind the 10 bucks, it simply is not worth my time to put up with the technical hassles and mediocre quality.
am I the only one who is thinking site is going to worse? this site used to be my favorite but over the course of last year, I saw that quality is going down. Not only number of anal scenes decreased but also quality of the girls doing them.
they use some American porn stars but only for soft content same for the good looking east European ones. only anal content is coming from really ugly girls. what happened to anal teen angels?
don't think I will renew when my membership expires :(
I usually never read user comments for the models on adult web sites but for some reason I started to read the ones on the 21 network because an awfully ignorant comment caught my eye one day. It is to be expected to read immature comments like "I'd like to jizz all over her tits" and stuff like that, but I found TONS of comments that are degrading the models, calling them ugly, whores, and stuff I'd rather not say. One comment read "look at this filthy whore, her breath reeks," another one read "typical fat ass american trash, what a whore" another one read "this bitch is so ugly it's a miracle they found a guy to do her," and I can go on and on. It simply blows my mind that a professional site like this doesn't have a moderator to delete the ignorant comments. How would these models feel if they happened to read those comments? Not very good. Makes the site seem careless to me, like they don't care about their models. I don't know why this bothers me so much but it does.
I noticed that in the picture set for each video there's WAY more cum than what they guy actually shot. Are the pictures touched up? A perfect example is Abbie from Anal Teen Angels (12/25/2011) In the picture set she has thick gooey cum piled on her pussy like whip cream on a sundae but in the video 90% of the cum ran down her side and there was hardly anything on her pussy. I noticed this countless times on every site on the network.
That as soon as I cancel my membership the server is now super S-L-O-W. 100 mbs per second internet speed but it's taking 6 minutes to dl a 180MB clip, which was taking 15-20 seconds before? Strange...
21Sextury has the best hardcore image resolution which is great for my 4k ultra high defintion 3820x2160 monitor that I have come across in an adult website, but I just wish they would include 10 times more images like about 1000 images per session. It may not be possible since it will take up a lot more size.
I know Brazzers offer about 1000 2460x1600 images per scene or session, but the quality is lower, so there is a compromise between quality and quantity.
@webmaster any change the website will offer more images per session?
There is no doubt that the 21sextury network is one of the best site on the web. However, when it comes to navigation it is totally a mess. Many broken links. Filtering the content is problematic. More importqnt is you cannot navigate hq content in your browser. If you want to see hq photos from a photo gallery of a model, you have to download ALL the hq pics in zip format. Most of the time I dont want to see all the photos but I just want to see some of them. This is very frustrating. Other than these problems site is great. Lastly, there is no need to ask about anything in the customer area because they wont answer you.
Some sites have poor preview pages, that show very little of what the site offers.
21sextury has a great preview pages.
The thumbnails show clearly what the models look like.
You have some really nice-looking models.
The videos look professionally shot.
You get to see short samples of the videos.
Reading the PU site reviews, scores range from 80s to 90s.
This is not directly in my comfort zone, as far as the type of sex action. I like a slower approach to sex. The sample videos I saw are like a bucking bronco at a rodeo.
Bu with a first month offer of $9.95, and a ton of gorgeous models, it's worth a try.
So I will sign up tomorrow.
OK. I signed up at 21sextury.
For some reason, the signup page rejected my Mastercard credit card 4 times.
I then tried a Visa card, and the signup page accepted that card.
The biller is Epoch.
After accepting my registration, I got a URL page that said, in part:
The first step of your purchase was successful.

I checked my email, and found 2 emails from Epoch or 21Sextury.
One email said:

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 itís 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 Ė in newspapers and magazines, online, in the mail, or on billboards or buses. The FTC looks especially closely at advertising claims that can affect consumersí health or their pocketbooks Ė 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.
The site navigation has become a complete joke. If you go to a models page it lists her scenes in a completely random order. It used to always be in chronological order, but not anymore. For a model like Sandy with a few hundred scenes, it's impossible to find anything specific if you're looking for newer stuff. There are no sort options whatsoever. I submitted this issue at least a week ago, never heard anything.
Furthermore technical support is non-existent as has ALWAYS been the case. Sure you can submit problems like this but you're just wasting your time as no one will ever answer them. Their link for checking submitted problems is a fake and just sends you to the site homepage. As such I suspect the problem submissions page doesn't actually submit problems either. Their email address is worthless as they don't reply. It most likely goes to a mailbox no one ever checks.
Simply put as has always been the case they don't care one bit about customer support. However, at least in the past you could still find what you were looking for, now with content displayed randomly, in no specific order, you can't even do that for models with more than a small number of scenes.
Just logged in today and now I'm finding that when I click on a scene page the damn videos start streaming automatically. It's never done this before so I'm assuming this is another so called upgrade or improvement to the navigation?
21Sextury has released a new "network" called 21Naturals. Seems to follow PassionHD and similar in white light, low contrast style with more couples themed action. Why it had to be another package entirely and not just a site, beats me.
Just logged in tonight and found the search filters that were down the left hand side of the screen have disappeared making the site virtually impossible to navigate for me.
Normally I just tick the "solo-masturbation" box which filters out virtually everything else that I'm not interested in so I don't have to wade through a sea of anal sex and gaping ass holes to find the nice solo sets.
I must admit I've found the navigation of this network one of the most difficult I've come across and without this filter it's virtually impossible for me to find what I want. The filters didn't work in Internet Explorer anyway so I've been using Chrome. Let's just hope it's only a temporary issue and they are fixing the bugs that caused it not to work in IE otherwise I'm going to be calling it a day on this site.
I tend to keep my eye on this site because I usually re-subscribe when enough updates have accumulated to make it worth my while. However I have noticed, to my regret, that they appear to be running out of mature models because quite often the same model is featured two, three times in the space of a couple of weeks. Can we expect some new models soon or are they just too hard to find?
Just noticed this listed as a new discount on TBP so I'm certainly planning to make this my next subscription as this price is too good to resist for a site I've never been a member of before. Unfortunately as the $9.95 then recurrs at $29.95 for the second and subsequent months I don't see any incentive to stick around longer than 1 month. It seems they've done away with the old price plan whereby the subscription would reduce to $9.95/month permanently from month 3 or 4 or whatever it used to be.
Iím sure there is a simple answer to this, but I canít figure it out.
When you go into any of the 21 Sextury or 21 Sextreme sites there is a long list of niches that appears on the left hand side of the screen under the heading ďfilter scenes byÖĒ It would seem that you could click on any of the boxes or a combination of boxes to sort scenes to include certain things youíre looking for. But hereís the problem: when you select a niche the page doesnít automatically reload to show the themes you want and there is no button to allow the page to sort. Can anyone tell me how I actually use this feature? Manually refreshing the page doesnít work either, it just reloads the page and clears any checked boxes.
Quick (I hope) technical question about the 21 Sextury network
I finally joined this network a week or so ago and love it. My only regret is that I didnít join earlier.
When I went on the site earlier this evening something was different though and I donít know if Iíve changed a setting or if the site has been changed. Iím hoping a member might have the answer (and even better, a fix).
Up until today when I went to a site page there was a grid of 36 thumbnails, one for each scene on that page. Hovering the mouse pointer over a thumbnail would bring up information on the scene name, upload date, site, and model name Ė all useful information. All of that is still the same today but now when I hover over a thumbnail I get an additional pop-up that shows a few screencaps from the scene. I donít object to seeing the screencaps but that pop-up is large enough that you have to be careful to move your pointer to an area of the main thumbnail so you can still read the information. There is a fine line between seeing the scene information and moving your pointer off the thumbnail, thereby losing both the pop-up and the scene information.
So can anyone tell me if Iíve accidentally turned some setting on or is this a new feature on the network as of today?
I joined this network over a year ago. It was my longest membership of any network or site, and I was intending to rejoin shortly, however I find they now have pre checked cross selling. I can't remember them doing this before, but it means I will no longer be a member.
On the plus side (I don't know if anyone here realises this) they run a points system where if you join for more than one month, you can earn enough points to download for free. This means that even after my membership was cancelled, I still had enough points to download six times for free, by simply logging in and using points to purchase downloads.
Another week gone, five days with four updates. One of them has no photos working and another one is CutiesGalore update with some too many times seen girl. Add another solo scene and one quite nice PixAndVideo scene and that's all. Apparently no GapeLand or ButtPlays or AnalTeenAngels (not a single update this year so far) update for this week either. Quality of the sites with fresher faces has been on downhill for long time anyway. Take a look at site like LezCuties and look at the recent stuff and then at something released in 2010 or earlier. I don't know what went wrong but it just seems to me that the cutie-factor disappeared somewhere in 2011.
Here's to hoping that we will see another uphill of rising quality of models and more regular update schedules!
A member at the moment, but miss straight porn - solo and hc. The network has introduced a sweet little thing: Jalace - very cute.
But erotica, solo, straight hc - nada. Only anal, anal and anal....Incredible.
And most of the other updates are the same.
