Really, I don't know why PU even lists it. If it didn't, I wouldn't have thrown away my money. After all, it hasn't been reviewed in years. But I stupidly assumed that since it was listed it must be ok.
I can't give a full review because all I did was download 5 videos, the newest of which was from 2011. None would play in VLS, a problem I never had before. I managed to find a way to watch them and couldn't bear watching more than a few minutes. The worst quality I have ever encountered. It would flunk as a free site.
I wrote several messages to them on Thursday or Friday. Two were to cancel. No response. Another one was to ask if the site was really as horrible as it seemed or if I might be missing something. I also mentioned I was a PU member and would be writing about my experience and I really wanted to get it right. No response.
PU gods, please take another look at this site to see if you want to continue to list it.
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.
(Khan - I didn't want to edit my earlier comment because that would make the replies seem strange but if you want to delete that earlier comment and replies I'll understand.)
I emailed New Sensations earlier today and asked them about the download limit and told them that I thought 2GB in 12 hours was unreasonably low for a site that offers HD scenes. Here's the reply I got:
We are not limiting the 2gb per 12hours. It is 6gigs in an hour. And if you are "blocked" it is for only an hour. Or if you let us know, we usually can fix it even faster, but it resets in an hour. We had to do that as we found abusers with download managers that were hurting the streaming and downloading from legit members. Let us know if you are seeing things differently and we will help you. In the beginning (after we switched the site to offer all the new formats and sizes) we had to watch and see what was happening.

I can confirm that my experience with the site tonight is completely different than last night. Last night I was using a download manager to queue up scenes and I triggered the limit. I'm certain that the warning I got was 2Gb in 12 hours (because that's pretty specific) but I'll concede that I may have been mistaken.
Tonight I'm downloading again and I'm well over 2GB but I'm taking things slower so as not to hit the limit. So far I haven't been locked out.
It appears that the site's intention is to reduce site rips and large data transfers by download managers and I can live with that.
I think it's important to set the record straight. I apologize for any confusion and I'll update this as necessary in a review later.
I just joined this network an hour ago with the full-price monthly membership and can confirm that the same (ridiculously low) 2GB limit per 12 hours applies to the full membership too.
I figured that since both bibo and audrina69 had trial memberships that the limit may be applied there. I admit that this was just an assumption on my part and I didn't check the terms of service. (A fool and his money are soon parted...)
Because I've exceeded the bandwidth limit I'm not even allowed to log in so that I can check the Terms of Service to ensure that the limit is CLEARLY spelled out there.
Download limits piss me off. Unnecessarily low download limits mean I'll spend the month with them and that's the last dime I'll ever spend there.
I just found out there is a 2GB download limit (at least during the trial period).
The following message appeared on my screen:
Bandwidth Limit Exceeded
"You have exceeded the bandwidth you are allotted per day. Each member is allotted 2 gigabyte's per 12 hours. This is to ensure that bandwidth is more even around for all members to download at fast speeds all the time. If you feel that this has been a mistake, or that your username/password have been cracked or stolen please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look into this and see if your username has been compromised."
Note: after exceeding the limit, you can't even connect to the site anymore! Given the fact that there is no notice whatsoever about this limitation, I think this is rather cheeky. Maybe the TBP staff could add this to the site description?
I'm interested in subscribe this site, but i red that either the downloading is slow and the DM not work :(
I would like to know if Speed accelerators almost working.
It would be' not possibile to dwnload content only with ie
I don't watch a lot of tv these days, but got a promo special offer in email for this site from New Sensations. Thought I would take a look and have to say, while I don't know a few of these shows in their real form, the ones I do are pretty impressive when it comes to finding porn stars that resemble the real cast of these shows. I noticed though on the TBP facts that there are no downloads for the videos. Still worth a preview visit to see the similarities.
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.
OK, so I get an e-mail from New Sensations - get our entire network for $9.95/month for life - sounds interesting, so I check out the recent updates and they've got a recent boy/girl update showing with Michele Maylene - very intriguing, so I click on it - site fails. I back track, click on other links - they fail. I click to look at their porn stars, see Natalia Rossi listed - very intriguing, so I click on her pic - site fails.
Fail, fail, fail - I'm no longer intrigued - not at all - I'm just feeling like "Take your fucking no-navigation site and shove it" - Duh! How stupid do you need to be to have a site where nothing works - and that's your promo? Ask New Sensations! They'll be able to tell you for sure!
Interesting....I like fingering so I went to the preview page and NOT ONE picture involving fingering...not one finger,....certainly not four. Is this a site that has a name someone thought up but never followed up on?
Here's another recycling "gotcha." Today they had a set of Laura Stevens that I thought I'd seen somewhere before. I checked my stash ... Well, I'd actually gotten some time before. A couple of years ago.
From this very site.
And the links from that time, around February 2007 on their calendar, are now empty.
Made a mistake in my last comment after beening overwhelmed by some of the stuff at Stunners.
But after some days of membership I see, that Drooler was right about his doubts concerning the exclusive. It's obvious that Stunners does not produce the content of the site and/or bonus-sites.
Still it's NOT a bad site (including bonus-sites) with fine quality in videos, content and updates...
My favorite - Maggie - probably has hit the score very accurately...
Well, Stunners are certainly somewhat stunning...
By all means not all (far from) are exclusive. But for videofreaks there are some damn fine exclusive stuff (hc and solo). Just joined, so not sure how much is exclusive.
But some of those solo-videos are with great dirty talk. Here they call Priya Rai Queen of dirty talk - ok, but much better here is the legendary Jana Cova - in a sweet accent she very dirty - among others asking the viewer if he's ready to fuck here and so on - it's wothout doubt the best video I've seen with Jana (and the quality is nothing but crisp).
How would you like this:
You're a member of a site - and in the middle of downloading some large video-files (500-600 Mb): Then your downloads just stop - and you're asked to login again. And then you have to start all over again...
That sucks in a major way in my opinion - and at this site you're not even allowed DM, so.... well, you get the picture.
Gave the site a 70 score - seriously considering downgrading (if it wasn't for SOME rare and fine content)...
But man, this site - never again. When I pay for something, I do not expect a hassle like that.
I see on New Sensations's tour that they have trailers for their upcoming videos. Does anyone know if you can actually download these videos on the website (when the videos are released) or is this just so they get you interested in buying their dvds elsewhere
I found Stunners.com when I did an asktiava.com search for Diane Deluna (a new, totally gorgeous, babe on Twistys) and did a quick browse of the preview site.
The "join now" price on the site is $24.95, so I did what I always do, I checked back here to see what info I could get about the site and found that the PU/TBP price is $19.95 a month when I followed the link from here to Stunners.com.
It looks like a high quality site and at $20 a month it may be worth a go...but Drooler's comment posted here last year says it may not be that large and/or that exclusive, so I'm back to the "thinking about it" stage.
With this site you get access to 24 sites, most of which can be found on the Newsensations network. You do get some differences with reelpass like Freshoutofhighschool and a few other mostly video sites where the quality is average at best.
As a general rule the newsensations type sites have smallish pics (1020x680) and vid in the max range of 800x600. Download speeds are OK. Some of the older vids on this network only have downloadable clips. A lot of this content gets repetitive for me at least.
I will note that you can access this network on a $5, 3 day full access trial by joining freshoutofhighschool through TBP. So, if you like Newsensations and their cadre of sites this might be a cheap way to update your collection. Newsensations has the better network but if you can find cheaper prices then go with the cut rate option when deciding which network to join.
I joined ashlynnebrooke today, because I love this nasty hottie, but I was disappointed with the site, because the tour page promised exclusive content, so I was hoping for personal videos of Ashlynn. The content is hot, but all the videos are scenes from her New Sensation DVDs. She has a personal diary, but no amateur or homemade content.
The site is okay, but buyer beware. Ashlynn does offer a trial membership to check out the site and the other network sites. I'd recommend going this route to see if you like the content, before purchasing a full membership.
