Why is the Fame cancel page so hard to use?

This is probably more of a rant than a comment, but it’s something that has been bugging me for a while. Lk2fireone’s comment on the Fame cancel pages not being secure prompted me to finally rant.

I know this is a better fit for a comment but since Fame has so many sites it made more sense to put this in the forum.

What bugs me about cancelling any Fame site is how hard they make it. I subscribe to several of their sites regularly and the join process is very easy. I select a username*, a password and some basic information including a credit card and I’m in. Leaving is a different matter though.

They make you go through these steps:
• find your join email to see which of several Fame billing sites they billed you through so you go to the right one. They’re all similar but you need to know because you can go through the first half of the cancel steps before you find out you’ve made a mistake
• enter the first six and last four digits of the credit card you used. But… whereas with the join process the cursor automatically moved from one four-digit block to the next to make it easy, the cancel page requires that you tab forward yourself. No big deal, but annoying
• enter the expiry date of your credit card using a pull-down menu. The issue here is that they swap the required order of that regularly
• enter a six-figure captcha and hit ‘locate your order’

You’re now in a new page. If you’re a regular subscriber you’re given a list of past and present memberships. My lists on all the Fame cancel sites are long. If you’re list is shorter then this is less of a concern. The problem here is that there is no way to differentiate between past and current memberships. They all look the same and they all have a cancellation button – even the ones you cancelled a long time ago. You need to scour the list to find a join date and a site name. Choose an already cancelled site and you won’t know it until you’ve gone through the rest of the process.

Select the right membership and hit the ‘cancel’ button

You’re now taken to the third page…

Now you have to enter your username
• Enter your email
• Confirm your email
• Select your reason for leaving
• Enter another six-figure captcha
• Hit the ‘submit’ button and hope you got everything right – if not, you’ll be starting over

I know that this rant sound whiny, but why make your customers go through this to cancel a membership. It isn’t like I’m trying to get out of the mob!

I know of no other sites with such a convoluted process.

I’m left with the thought that the only reason they do this is precisely to make it hard enough so that any error you make increases their chances of a rebill. That’s a bad choice, in my opinion, since they offer some of the best porn on the internet. They don’t need unfair tactics.

(* in an unrelated rant, with Fame having so many sites it’s a pain in the ass to have to create a new username every time you join any of their sites. Do like Kink.com does – create an account under one username and then allow members to join whatever sites they want with that name. And cancel and rejoin later under the same name. I’m running out of usernames…

The good news for webmasters is that the buzz amongst them lately is that their well is drying up. The file lockers often get their bank assets frozen due to illegal files.


I may be naïve or just stupid, but I didn't know that money changed hands in some of these cases. I always went on the assumption that these pirates did it out of some warped sense of right and wrong. Sort of Robin Hood of the high-tech world.

It's great news for all of us who buy porn to support porn production that some of this piracy may be drying up.

One question though (and I know this demonstrates my ignorance of the whole thing) but are "file lockers" different from torrent sites and if so, how are these different from "tube" sites. Tube sites look like they exist in a grey area where there may be some otherwise legitimate businesses engaging in less-than-ethical practices.

Thanks for the info jd.

Thanks to all for the replies. I have a lot more comfort now that I've read what you wrote.

While I am a heavy downloader (initially at least) on most new sites I download, I don't use any software to 'grab' the whole site. If I'm downloading a lot from a site it is only because I like what the site offers and I want to see a lot of it. And I'm anti-piracy and pro paying for porn to keep the supply chain alive so I'd never upload to a torrent site even if I knew how to do that.

How is site ripping defined?

A recent back-and-forth between a PU member and webmaster got me wondering about site ripping. More important to me personally, I was left wondering if I could ever be accused of doing the same thing.

What is site ripping? Is it literally using some kind of software to download EVERYTHING from a site automatically or is it just a term to describe a heavy user?

The reason that I wonder about this is that often when I join a new site during my first week of the membership my downloads can be large. It wouldnt be unusual for me to download 200+ GB from a site in the first week. But I dont download everything I only download what I like. If the scene features a MILF or a BBW I dont download it. There is nothing automatic about how I select what I want from a site. As an example, consider Brazzers. They tend to feature more large-breasted models than the petite models I like. So while I downloaded 200GB in just a few days it should be obvious to anyone at the site that I was being very selective. Contrast that with 18 Only Girls, where the models there are much more to my liking, Ill be downloading a lot more, but Im still selective. In all cases after a few days of downloading like a madman my downloads trail off as all Im doing is looking at the updates.

So as I can be a heavy user for a few days on a site even though I am selective in what I download is this considered site ripping?

Has anybody watched the recent Maddy OReilly scene at Brazzers?

Ive never posted here about a specific scene, but I recently watched a Maddy OReilly scene at Brazzers that might cause me to rethink porn. The scene was uploaded on August 19 and is titled Sex on Wheels. Im not a huge Brazzers fan due to their selection of mostly well-endowed women (either by nature or by a plastic surgeon) but when I heard about this scene I joined the site just for this one scene. I like Maddy OReilly and shes definitely pushing the envelope a bit more.

There are several things for me that mark this as an epic scene. First, it begins in public and the first sexual contact is with Maddy going down on the guy outdoors near a public area. When they move inside theyre on the ground floor of a house and theyre near a wall with large windows. Throughout the scene people walk by giving the scene a risqu element that makes the scene hot. Finally, Maddy really pushes the envelope with a golden shower at the end of the scene. She looks so innocent that this is a real surprise.

My advice for those who have a Brazzers membership is to definitely watch this scene, and for those who dont have a membership take advantage of the TBP discount and join.

This will definitely be on my top-scenes list for a long time.

Count me out. Not a fucking chance.

I noted this in the article: "Increased ability to focus and cognitive endurance." I don't believe that. After just three days I'd become a sex-obsessed lunatic who would have to be locked away from the summer students working in the office.

I've had a Hard X membership several times since they went live a few months ago. It's an excellent site and I highly recommend it. Not every scene is anal, but maybe 75% of the scenes have anal. Some are 'first' too. Production values are great.

They have a trial membership that is reported as being full access so that may be a low risk way for you to check the site out. One caveat: save your confirmation email as the parent company has several support sites for when you want to cancel. The specific support site you need will be given in the email. You'll also need to provide your site username and password to cancel so remember those.

Both pat362 and I have posted reviews here so those may answer any questions you have.

I have no information on Sin Drive, but I'll definitely check it out now.

Its all good I do hope GPL comes back though.
If I ever offended him, or others its not me intent,
I tend to speak my mind at times, but never want a person to feel bad cause of what I said to them in cases like this.


I disagree with you for thinking that you have anything to apologize for. I don't think you stepped over the line at all when you called him out on the name. What was over the line was his response to you. His response to you was uncalled for. I'd like to hope that I would have done the same thing if I had noticed the name earlier.

Ah, these bring back some great memories! Actually, I can still find big hair on the head a turn-on. It's big hair in the nether regions that I don't miss.

Gaypornlover:

Sorry I haven't weighed in on this earlier (and I hope I'm not too late) but I've been away. You have my support on this. I can understand that since there were no rules on usernames that it created a bit of a grey area fro Rick and Khan, but I think that they made a reasonable compromise. Whether our new friend sees it that way is yet to be seen. Maybe this isn't the American way, but I see limits on free speech when it hurts the whole community, and I think being inclusive and welcoming everyone is a more pressing value than allowing someone to have a username that undermines the community - whether or not it was chosen in good faith, as a joke or ironically.

But, as PinkPanther, said, we'd be better off judging the person by his actions and comments here than just the username, but he is making it hard since as soon as Cybertoad called him out on the name, our new friend called Cybertoad a "fucktard."

All that to say that you have my full support. While I wish this hadn't happened, I think you can agree that it showed how supportive this group can be. This is definitely the best porn forum on the 'net.

Im a bit late to this party, but I think were living in the golden age of porn, but there are some issues, and definitely some storm clouds on the horizon.

I think these are great days for porn (though I agree that were on the waning edge of that) just due to the availability of it, the variety of it and the ease of which we can amass huge collections without needing to add an addition to the house.

I make a lot of these observations based on my experiences in obtaining porn when I was finally able to legally do so. Actually, that isnt entirely accurate since even though I was legal, the material wasnt. Back then owning a copy of Debbie Does Dallas in my hometown was illegal thanks to the now-antiquated community standards laws. Finally an entrepreneur took up the cause and opened an adult shop. He had visits by the police regularly until community standards changed. That took a while. But even then it meant spending a lot of money to buy a DVD or less money to rent. But it also meant driving to a populated area of a small city and entering a store on a busy street. Then there was the storage of this. Owning a couple of dozen VHS tapes was a pretty big commitment for storage, especially if you were trying to be discrete.

Things were a bit better when DVDs came along, but the cost was still high, you still had to go to the porn store, and even though DVDs are smaller than VHS tales there is still a problem with storing them discretely.

Now back to today where for the cost of one VHS or DVD movie with three or four scenes I can get a membership to a site offering hundreds or even thousands of scenes. I can get this membership from the comfort and privacy of my own home, and storage is cheap and it is easy to store a few hard drives discretely. On top of that, if you properly back your stuff up it should live forever, unlike a VHS tale which deteriorated over time or unlike a DVD with one scratch that could render it unplayable.

Add to that the variety of porn available. Sites now cater to any legal niche you can think of. Maybe the best part of that is that back in the old days Id be disappointed to learn that all the new releases at the local shop were BBW-themed. I just avoid those sites now and go to any of hundreds that cater to my personal tastes.

But I do think this golden age is coming to a close. I think piracy is the biggest threat by bleeding profits off of new porn and driving wages down. This race to the bottom wont help any of us.

The other negative element coming is the political move to the right on these issues and the willingness that more people seem to have to impose their religious-based morality on others, or the soccer mom mentality of protecting the children. One possible remedy for this will be the inevitable end of the community standards test. I wont predict that it will happen soon, but its hard to argue that me sitting in my house downloading a porn video that I bought on a server in another part of the planet can offend my neighbours.

Just a few thoughts

Pat made some interesting points that Id like to comment on:

Tattoos: as others have said, thats a generational and cultural thing now and not a porn thing. A young woman who is a porn star or a Starbucks barista is just as likely to have tattoos. Im like many who are anti-tattoo on models with otherwise unblemished skin, but I also like the other end of the spectrum where women are heavily tattooed. I cant explain that to myself so I wont try explaining it here either.

Extreme stuff versus passion and kissing: I agree fully with this. I miss that in porn, and to get it back doesnt require going back to features. Just add some passion and normal intimacy and the heat in the scene will go off the scale. I know many wont agree with me on this, and some for completely different reasons, but as a fan of anal porn I miss the days of more intimate anal sex. These days it seems all too common to use anal sex as some sort of an endurance test. There is nothing about anal sex that excludes passion and intimacy.

Good male performers: Im glad that pat raised this. I think this is an issue too. Where are the decent looking men who know that theyre not the stars and do the job they were paid to do. I find it distracting when the male talent looks like he got out of jail earlier that day.

Interesting thread. Thanks for starting it.

It occurred to me that perhaps we're getting sucked down a rabbit hole on this issue by thinking that this is the future of porn when clearly it is a fringe niche and will likely remain that way. Trends come and go in porn. Is prolapsing unhealthy? I don't think anyone would disagree with the statement that prolapsing on purpose may cause health problems. But how many models do prolapse porn? I'm not asking that as a rhetorical question because as someone who doesn't look for it I really don't know. But the article only cites a handful and members here only know of the same handful. I really doubt that new models sit in the talent scout's office and are asked if they're willing to let their lower colon collapse out of their anus.

As one of the 'fools' around here who do like seeing anal sex I don't agree that this is just one more step toward complete depravity and social collapse. Many people heralded Max Hardcore as the end of porn but it turns out he was a just a minor side branch off of the then-new gonzo material.

It is probably a natural human inclination to label as 'the other' someone who's interests, tastes or beliefs don't properly align with our own, but this seems to be just a fringe niche and not a trend toward new lows of depravity.

(Consider the rise of artcore sites. They seem to be in their ascendancy in terms of numbers and popularity. It seems to me that if we were all morally bankrupt monsters pushing models to do more and more extreme acts that artcore sites wouldn't be financially viable.)

This is a really interesting article. Thanks for linking to it. I tend to be a fan of harder-edged stuff, and I'm definitely a fan of anal sex videos, but some of this extreme stuff is a bit too far beyond my limits. And I say this as someone who has been a member of Roxy Raye's site, though not for the rosebuds.

I recall on another forum (ADT) where a thread was questioning the sanity of any model who would participate in this stuff and I think it was Roxy herself who joined in and in well-reasoned and informed replies made a compelling argument as to why she enjoyed this and why those who don't should stop being so judgmental.

Unlike so many others, I don't see this as a slippery slope. I don't think there has been an appreciable increase in the extreme acts that women are asked to perform on camera. I remember in the '80s that there were ads in adult magazines that seemed to offer worse than this.

I know I'll suffer some flaming for this, but if the models are aware of the health risks and take steps to mitigate the damage, then just because something isn't to your liking, don't denigrate the people who do like it. Hell, I've taken flack here for just liking tame anal that appears on some 'artcore' sites. Pornusers has always been a forum where people could agree to disagree and not descend into verbal fisticuffs.

Thanks.


I always make it a point to read the TBP listing on a site. The page for this site clearly marks it as a RK site.

And I can confirm that they do spell out the download limit in their Terms of Service. The language is a bit vague and it does seem to be applied differently to different people, but the limit is there. But like you I don't read the TOR very often. I do recommend that you dig a bit deeper and see if a site is affiliated with network because if you had identified that this was RK there is lots of information on the download limit. (And I say this with no hint of smugness since I joined a Bang Bros site without checking it out first and got badly burned.)

I agree with pat. I have probably over 10,000 porn scenes and I can't think of any where there is a covered blowjob. But I admit that I don't go looking for it either.

Good luck. I suspect that there is some out there but you'll probably have to dig around a bit.

Interesting porn-related article in Maxim

Theres an interesting porn-related article in the April issue of Maxim titled The Dirty Secret behind Dirty Movies that focuses on the porn industry in Arizona and specifically looks at how the industry there draws on Arizona State University for new female talent. I wouldnt normally have more than a passing interest in the article except that the main focus is two related sites that Ive been a member at and will be again: Back Room Casting Couch and Exploited College Girls. The article lists a number of websites based in an area around ASU including my current favorite site, Amateur Allure, as well as Lightspeed Network, Aziani.com and countless others.

Im not really familiar with the journalism standards that Maxim applies, but Im guessing that theyre relatively low since the article is written almost as a cautionary piece about how young womens lives are being destroyed by the predatory male pornographers who live and work near ASU and prey on the cute young coeds struggling to make tuition at one of the biggest party schools in the country.

The first several paragraphs of the story follow the plotline used at BRCC: a young lass answers an ad for some softcore work and meets a producer at his office. The producer talks about the good money in hardcore and convinces the girl to make a demo tape, for which she wont be paid, that the producer will shop around to get her lots of work in the industry. (Though it wasnt mentioned in the article, the producer often points out to the model that to get to the really big money, up to $5K a scene, she has to do anal, which he also graciously offers to demo with her.) But the crux of the first part of the story uses the same conceit that BRCC uses on its site, namely that the guy isnt a producer and there will be no work for the model. The not-so-subtle message of the story at this point is that the poor lass has ruined her life for nothing.

(The story also raises other high-profile porn cases such as when Shanes World shot an edition of Scavenger Hunt there, and how a frat boys college education was ruined when he had sex with Calli Cox in the shower while the camera rolled. They label Shanes World an amateur outfit. They also tell the story of Courtney Simpson who famously wore her ASU cheerleading outfit in several scenes causing the school to take legal action for trademark infringement. Im no marketing expert, but I think the better thing to do here would have been to offer to give her more ASU cheerleading uniforms and ask her to wear one in every scene. That could have paid off in increased enrollment.)

It isnt until well into the article that the author drops the faade and admits that the model he is focusing on (Stacey) was paid $2,000 to act like she was there for softcore and then get talked into and then perform hardcore.

The article quotes Stacey as saying that she was duped though, and that she really did enter into the whole deal expecting a few nude shoots. She claims that the BRCC site owner had her sign a contract where the fine print imposed the hardcore element on her. If she reneged on that part of the contract she had to buy her way out at the price of $3,500. But the problem with that story is that the only source is from a woman who obviously has an axe to grind with BRCC. The article does note that such a contract term is illegal. I know were dealing with an 18-year old here, but why didnt she walk away and take her chances? Some things dont add up.

Im likely a bit different from the average reader of this article in that I have had memberships at BRCC and ECG. I really liked the sites and will definitely rejoin too. But the thing is this: I recognize that this is acting. Is there a power imbalance? Maybe. Is the model trapped? I doubt it. As a regular porn buyer I can also say that there are some models who dont appear to have done more porn, but many of them have. Many have gone on to have porn careers. It seems that the author found a model who regretted her choice and wanted to speak out against it. In my opinion its bad journalism to use one example and apply it to a whole group.

One point to note here is that Im not supporting the tactics that the site uses to recruit models, but I doubt theyre as heavy-handed as Stacey said they were. The author should have done some independent research and not based his reporting solely on the account of one young woman who regrets a choice she made. Interestingly, the article quotes the porn recruiter and producer, Mike South, as saying that when he meets a young woman who wants to get into porn he says that he takes a different approach. My interview process is like this: Im looking for reasons not to shoot you. If its a nice girl from a nice family, Ill ask why the hell do you want to do this? I dont know what approach the BRCC owner uses, but with the author not bothering to find out apart from Staceys say-so, well never know.

Two things that will likely stir the pot a bit: I think that part of the problem is that when I was 18 and did some stupid stuff it wasnt as public as it is today with the proliferation of cameras and the easy distribution via the internet. My (mostly alcohol-fueled, testosterone-filled) mayhem wasnt subject to the same publicity as it is today. If someone took a picture of me doing something stupid they needed a week to get the film developed and then if they put it on the bulletin board I could just remove it. End of story. Not so now with everyone having a hi-def camera in their pocket and immediate access to the internet. Another factor is likely the need for attention that so many people have these days. Facebook and reality TV are good examples of this. It may be that Stacey and others thought this would be an edgy and hip thing to do and didnt think through the consequences.

And speaking of the consequences, isnt that our problem too? I think the saying about porn that we privately adore it and publically abhor it applies here. It has consequences mostly because we create those consequences. The consequences are of our own making. Maybe we need to realize that some bad judgment shouldnt scar a young person for life just as we werent scarred for life by our own stupidity years ago.

I didnt mean for this to turn into a rant If you happen by a magazine stand in the next few days and want to read it, its the April issue with Sophia Bush on the cover. The article starts on page 77. Keep in mind that the May issue will be replacing that soon. Zinio has it too.

(I should also note that the first page or so is available free online.)

Any thoughts???

I think that I may know so little about what I'm asking that I may have asked the wrong question. That or I just don't understand the answers.

For clarification, what I'd like to learn to do is add a link in a post but name the link something other than the actual host web address. So, for example, say I want to add a thread and say that Rose Red could quickly be added to my list of favourite models and include a link to a photo:

http://img140.imagevenue.com/img.php?ima...titled_123_174lo.jpg

But I've seen (here I think) where people are able to name the link something else, like "Rose Red" or something.

But maybe this is something that can't be done here.

Thanks for all of your answers. I hope that if I asked the wrong question that this clarifies it.

Technical question about posting links in a thread

I see here and on other sites where people will include a link to a third-party site where they've uploaded a picture. They are able to name the link something other than the web address name. How do they do that? Do you name the link within the site you're posting to or at the hosting site?

Did Marie McCray ever do an anal scene?

I have a recent memory of stumbling across a Marie McCray anal scene somewhere in my collection but all indications from IAFD and other similar sites don't support my memory.

Does anyone know if she did an anal scene or am I starting the long slide to dementia?

What sites have provided you with your most watched/viewed videos or pics

Full disclosure: Im starting this thread in hopes of learning about some sites that I had never heard of before, but also because it might start some conversations, which have been lacking around here for a couple of months.

Im sure everyone here is like me in that you tend to buy memberships within some relatively narrow boundaries. Theres no shame in that since we all like what we like. The sites I join tend to be slightly harder edged than average, but not over the top like some of the Abuse sites. If I was writing this a few years ago the #1 site on my list would likely be Videobox because it was like a well-stocked adult shop but with lower prices. Today VB wouldnt make any list I had of great or even good sites.

The idea for posing this question came as I realized that when it comes to watching porn I often get a bit fixated in that Ill go back to the same stuff over and over because I find it so hot. Does anyone else share this trait? If so, what sites have you been a member at where what you downloaded gets a disproportionate amount of viewing time?

Heres my list:

Amateur Allure A while back I got hooked on casting and quasi-amateur sites the kind where the models arent truly amateur but dont have a lot of scenes. I dont remember how I found Amateur Allure but since I was a member there maybe three or four months ago the videos I downloaded from there get played a lot more than videos from other sites. This site is definitely outside what Id normally look for: theres very little anal and the sex is pretty standard. Many have (rightly) complained that the site is to formulaic, but that formula works. I think the reason that I like these videos so much is because the models are incredibly hot and they play at being sexually experienced but still somehow innocent. This is a site that Ill rejoin many times.

Exploited College Girls This was another of my slightly-off-the-beaten-path sites when I was joining anything with a casting theme. I expected Id like it, but not as much as I did and still do. This site also uses quasi-amateurs in that they are in the business, but only have a few scenes. So for me, there are a lot of fresh faces. The sex here is slightly harder-edged than with Amateur Allure but still pretty mainstream. I think the main reason I go back to these videos so often is because the models are so hot and they play slightly innocent. And road head. Theres lots of road head and thats a new fetish of mine thanks to ECG.

Teasers VOD Ive always been a huge fan of public nudity and exhibitionism and its one of those niches that seems like it would be easy to shoot. But it must be harder than it looks because Ive had memberships at many public nudity sites and most of them lack any heat. Teasers, in my opinion, does everything right. The models are beautiful (many A-list porn stars) and the public nudity is daring. I think the biggest difference between Teasers and many other similar sites is that the other sites come off as almost clinical while Teasers is sensual and highly sexual even though there is no sex. The bad news is that they are no longer updating due to a cease-and-desist order from the City of Los Angeles. For only being non-sex videos, these get a lot of air time from me.

Evil Angel I think I join this site more often than any other on the internet. EA provides exactly what I look for in videos: hot models, good production values, some kinky sex and lots of anal. If Im in the mood to watch some nasty sex, Ill usually plug in a drive that has lots of Evil Angel stuff on it.

So what sites have provided you with the most viewing enjoyment in the past while?

Why do most of the TS models come from South America?

Im not a big fan of transsexual porn, but Im not ideologically opposed to it either. It just isnt my thing. Much like big breasts arent my thing either. The little TS porn Ive seen, and the stuff that has been available on networks where Ive been a member, seems to be overwhelmingly populated by South American models, and specifically Brazilian models seem to be in the majority. Why is it that South America and Brazil in particular seem to have more TS models than elsewhere? Or is this perception a mistake on my part? Keep in mind that I dont actively look for TS porn so it may just be that the stuff that I have seen is skewed to South American models.

Any thoughts?

That brings back memories. Porn was finally legal where I lived and the eroticism was amazing. Early gonzo was also well done too. with people like Joey Silvera. I really wish he's remaster and reoffer some of his early gonzo stuff.

I understand your reasoning, but I include Asphyxia because her tattoos are so visible.

Karmen Karma has just been added to my list. I don't know how long she's been around, but I just saw her yesterday.

As the site is now, it would be a year or two before I'd rejoin if the only option was the full price. But I can see going back several times a year and using the 2-day trial to get a few scenes I'm looking for. Admittedly, it would be better if Hard X was bundled with Erotica X.

Good point. I hadn't thought of couples-oriented porn. You're right that the male needs a bigger role in those scenes.

I'm probably not an average porn buyer, but I would have spent $30 for this...

I agree with you that they'll likely have to bundle this with Erotica X or Open Life. That makes sense.

It won't happen again. I should have though that through a bit better. The promo price is the same as the TBP / PU discount price so everyone should ignore the promo. I tried editing it out but can't.

Hard X Studio site is now live and taking memberships

Mason's new studio has finally opened it's doors for members and downloads. I just joined so I can't vouch for it, but Mason's work with Elegant Angel was superb and I have no reason to think this will be any different. The site is affiliated with Mason's other site Erotica X and that's part of the Open Life Network. I can vouch for both Erotica X and Open Life as I've had memberships there before.

I don't think I'm breaching any rules to mention that there is a promo code available for 50% off. The code is OPEN50. With the studio being new, the site is likely small so having a discounted price at $15 is a good idea.

I'd love to stay and chat, but I've got Maddy O'Reilly's first anal scene to watch...

I have nothing against the men in porn, but

it bugs me when they get the same billing as the female models on porn sites. Let me explain.

At a network that Im a member at now the scenes list all the cast. The site Im downloading from features parties with lots of people, both male and female. The cast list has many of the models listed, but often starts by listing some of the men, and usually intersperses the mens names with the women. Since I name the downloads for the women in them, it makes it more confusing for me. Is Tyler or Pat a new female model I might like to find more of, or is it male?

I wont name the network or site because they arent the only ones who do this. Ive complained about it in past reviews of other sites.

I have nothing against the men in porn, and I think they deserve credit for the work they do. But I hold the opinion that the men in straight porn are really nothing more than a prop. The scene may have a couch or a bed, and it needs to have a penis too. The male supplies that. The males job is simply to show off the female at her best.

I have nothing against listing the male talent, I just dont like it when they get top billing.

Does anyone agree or disagree?

I realize that what you wrote is quite contradictory, but it's an opinion that I share. I can't explain it, but while I definitely prefer all natural, I like women who are heavily tattooed or openly tattooed. Bonnie Rotten, Krysta Kaos and Asphyxia Noir are among my favorite performers.

Or will you? Given the topics around here one could easily argue that Frost was talking about anal sex when he wrote the last stanza of The Road Not Taken:

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

Mmmmm... less travelled...

I'm adopting this as a new phrase in my lexicon: "I'd like to tongue punch her fart box."

Now all I have to do is figure out how to incorporate this into civilized office and dinner table chat.

Any information on HardX.com website going live?

As most members here probably already know, the former Elegant Angel director Mason is off on her own now. Im not sure if she has any affiliation with EroticaX, but she has a sister studio called HardX. They have a blog, and they have trailers for what has to be some of the hottest porn to be made in years, but there are no obvious signs that the studio website is about to go live any time soon meaning the titles are only available as pricey VODs.

I have read elsewhere that Mason was talking about a late February date for going live, but obviously theyve missed that. Ive also read that some people stumbled on what appeared to be a beta test of the site that was up for an hour or two.

I know this is subjective, but it seems to me like this site is going to offer some amazing porn and may be a shot in the arm to a lagging industry. Ill admit that a lot of the reason that Im interested in this studio site is that Mason shoots stuff I like. Itll be like an early Christmas when they go live and if they offer all their titles.

Does anyone have any information on when the new site will be up?

I've been actively buying and downloading porn for well over a decade now, and up until recently I could best be described as a hoarder. I almost never deleted anything. This past summer I did delete a bunch of old, low-res stuff that did free up some space.

One thing to keep in mind is that the furious pace at which you're uploading won't continue. You probably downloaded 1.5TB recently because you hit the mother lode of stuff you like. That won't happen all that often. If you have 16+TB of space I suspect you have a long way to go before you need to worry.

Try to revisit some of what you downloaded occasionally. You'll probably find that a lot of it no longer interests you so you can probably delete it. On the other hand, I have poor quality old porn still in my collection simply because I like those particular scenes. Neither of us needs to justify those choices to anyone.

I have 15 external drives, mostly WD. When I cleaned out some old porn I also eliminated any drive that was less than 1TB. Many of my drives are 2TB which means the same physical size holds twice the data, and as hard drive capacities increase I'll start buying those when the price per GB is acceptable.

I also backup everything. I have never suffered a complete failure of an external drive, but the probability of that happening sometime is high so I backup regularly. I backup onto the larger kind of external drives, the kind that also require their own AC power, because those are much less expensive per GB and since they're only for backup storage the reduced convenience is no issue.

As for drive storage, find something that works for you. I have my primary drives in a locked briefcase at home because no one would question that given my circumstances. A tool box, tackle box or even a gym bag might work in your case. Storing backups is a little trickier since good practice dictates that these be stored in a separate location. But since the primary reason you're backing up is to protect against drive failure, you may not see the need to store those in a separate location. If you choose to find a different place for your backups, my advice is that it be convenient to get to otherwise you probably won't backup as much as you should. Or keep you active backup drive nearby and stash your dormant ones.

I hope some of this helps!

The oldest in that folder was from March 2000 - a whopping 44 megabyte file at a grainy as hell resolution of 352x240 and a 700kbps bitrate. Hard to believe that was cutting edge at the time.


I did something similar this summer. I managed to eliminate a lot of stuff that was so poor quality that it just wasn't worth keeping. I managed to consolidate 22 external drives down to 12. The physical space saved there was worth it. Of course, these days I've been downloading a lot so the drives are filling up again.

Damn this thread brings back memories! The slooooow dial up connections. The photos that took forever to download. I remember the first 'video' I ever saw online was a 3 or 4 second long GIF. I thought that the world had changed.

As an aside, I remember swapping some VHS tapes with a co-worker back in '96 or '97 and he expressed the wildly insane opinion that someday we'd be able to watch and download ENTIRE porn movies over the internet. I laughed and told him that I'd like to try what he was smoking. The worst part of that story is that he was an in-house investment portfolio manager with a lot of experience in raising capital. He jokingly suggested that he and I should get into business. I can only imagine if we had. There might be a whole line of ass-themed movies, like "The Admiral's Ass Cravings," or "The Admiral Rows the Little Man in the Boat, and then eats ass..." Okay, I'd need better titles...

1. At any given time, fewer than 10. But I always have a wider circle of maybe 20+ that if I stumble on their stuff I buy it.

2. IAFD (because I prefer DVDs, but I'll download anything) and indexxx.

3. I use IAFD mostly because most of the models I follow are American and IAFD tracks these fairly well and a lot of American actresses don't seem to have the same identity crises that European models have. I do go to indexxx for European models though.

4. Body type mostly. And being a bit of an anal queen.

This site a very good job of offering info on both European and American models. As far as I know. All their links are for paid sites. Mind you I think all of the sites I'm referring to only offer links to paying sites.

http://www.indexxx.com/

This site does about the same thing as porn teen girls but I don't like their design and navigating is harder than on PTG. I also don't think you are getting more than from PTG.

http://www.data18.com/

This is the new guy on the block and it is the best one of the bunch in large part because their search engine allows user to search by keywords. They do the same as indexxx and PTG in that they keep track of both American and European models.


pat, you're a living encyclopedia of porn knowledge. It's great to have you here.

I enjoy Hitchens too. If you haven't read his book Missionary Position yet I'd highly recommend it. It embodies everything that Hitchens stood for, and in this case takes a revered icon and absolutely trashes her. Hitchens seems to do his homework in everything he wrote, and this book caused me to rethink the hero-worship that surrounded Mother Theresa. I think I could sum it up by paraphrasing a general theme in the book: Mother Theresa wasn't a friend of the poor, she was a friend of poverty.

It's a short book and a delightful read. The copy I have has a quote from a reviewer on the cover that I love. he calls the book "deliciously mean."

There was also a short and amateurish documentary made of the same title. Hitchens lays out the same arguments in the documentary.
