And, as if to prove my point, I just had about 15 downloads queued. I've given up on streaming from this site, so i download everything in order to preview. My internet connection was interrupted. When I reconnected, every single one of my remaining downloads failed (403). Now, if I want them, I have to find the video for each one, and try again. This site is a complete fucking joke now.

Site has gone way downhill

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).

Tragic, site has kinda gone to crap :(

In my experience the videos are exclusive. I have been a member of this site and Seventeen Video, and have not found any overlap. Eventually most of these scenes end up released on one of the numbered My Sexy Kittens DVD volumes. And much of the Seventeen stuff ends up released on one of that label's many DVD titles (Sporty Teens, etc). They do seem to be related, but they don't seem to be releasing content in both places.

To the original reviewer: Do the pics have Zips available yet? Before I could not find a good way to download the pics at all. Also, did you have any issues with download speed/reliability? Just wondering if they have improved in that department. I seem to remember this was not a problem before, but the last few times I have checked for improvements it has been worse and worse.

Not all videos marked HD really are

This is a major edit to a previous comment. It looked like HD videos are no longer available but that is not the case. It is simply that all videos are marked as HD, even ones that are not. And the file sizes listed are completely wrong for the HD videos - they are much larger than what is displayed. For example i am downloading one right now listed as 319 MB but actually weighing in at 572.

So there does not seem to be any video content missing, just some that is mislabeled. And not all photo sets have Zip sets, and the navigation is pretty terrible. Content is great though, all in all still well worth the price if you can get the discount - just be prepared for some minor annoyances.

Yeah I hear you about the HD thing. I have a large HDTV i like to watch stuff on, so I am always happy to see HD content available. The fact that they keep it streaming-only just frustrates me, I don't like paying for content I can't keep, and I think this kind of control is a losing game for the studios. I kind of just don't want to give them my money. But that's me.

As for the navigation, it does seem to have improved a bit. But after spending some more time on the site, I agree with you both - it's still pretty frustrating. It's inconsistent as you mentioned, and also i have not been able to find a way to search or browse content from all network sites. For example, if I am looking for content from a particular performer, I have to run a search on every single site. I'd much rather see something similar to Naughty America, Porn Pros, etc, where you can search by site OR you can search the whole network.

I will add that at the special rate of $9.95 available through thebestporn.com, it is still worth joining. I didn't feel that this discounted price should affect my overall rating though. If that discount is still available when you are considering signing up, I would probably still recommend it, just don't expect to come out of it *owning* any HD content.

Yes, this is what their tech support told me as well. Didn't work for me. From the very beginning I was logging in through the site I originally joined, and following links form there to the other sites. I was very careful about this when going through it with tech support. No amount of cookie clearing, restarting, re-logging in etc would totally fix the problem. It would only shift around which sites were accessible and which weren't. It may have somehow been my browser, but since I use the current stable, public version of Firefox, that seems somewhat unlikely. I am fairly knowledgeable about these kinds of issues and I really found it puzzling! Again not a deal breaker, just weird and a little annoying.

Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: + Tons of content, much of which is very high quality compared to other high volume DVD sites
+ Frequent updates (seems like at least one per day usually)
+ Devil's Film studio content tends to be very high quality with good looking girls
+ Newer scenes include HD streaming content which is very nice
+ Easy cancellation. Just sayin'.
Cons: - Download speeds are inconsistent, often just stopping, generally only for a few seconds but sometimes for long enough to time out.
- Downloads are WMV only
- Using a download manager I get a lot of 400 errors. This seems to be an issue of overzealous security, but this is not covered in their collection of 8 FAQs so who knows...
- No zips for image sets (though the image sets are pretty weak anyway and clearly not the focus)
- File names are not helpful (eg 7080_02_big.wmv), expect to rename each file if you like to keep your collection organized.
- DEALBREAKER!!! HD content is streaming only. This may not be as much of an issue for some, but for me this pretty much does it in. These control freak studios (see also: Digital Playground) need to realize that in the current market, those of us who are willing to pay for content should perhaps be accommodated, not punished by having the good stuff withheld.
Bottom Line: If you don't care about HD content, or don't mind streaming it, this is a good choice for a variety of niches in a fairly well organized, mostly searchable format, as long as network conditions are good. Newer scenes are streamable in HD, and older scenes are still pretty good quality.

However, if like me you are looking for content that looks great on your big fancy HDTV, aren't turned on by buffering screens, and/or don't want to reward studios for trying to control piracy by simply not letting customers have what they want, you will be frustrated. Combine this with downloads that often seem to fail due to having an incorrect security key, and I get the impression that Devils Film cares more about protecting their content than providing it. As long as this is the case, I will not be coming back.

Agreed. That being said, I do think they are doing better than some others, and I am hopeful that more improvement will come. At least they are not going the route of studios like Digital Playground, who would rather you stream everything and download nothing...

Just a quick follow-up: today I am having a 100% failure rate on photo gallery zip downloads. I figure either fix it or don't offer it.

Updated: 02-21-11  09:20pm  (Update History)
Reason: Encountered a significant negative: download keys expire quickly, so no download managers
Pros: + Large amount of content
+ Some very hot girls
+ Decent set of options for videos. All scenes are streamable (Flash) and downloadable ( multiple formats)
+ New videos are in HD, a key area where a lot of the "reality"-type, episodic sites are beating most of the more studio-based sites. the 720p versions look great on my HDTV.
+ Zip downloads for photos (when they work, which is rare)
+ Current price of $9.99/mo is hard to beat
Cons: - Not friendly to download managers - I am only able to queue about 5 scenes before they start failing with expired key notices. For some reason this is even worse with photo zips (seems like the keys expire very quickly)
- Inconsistent and sometimes laughably low download speeds. I am currently downloading at about 24KB/s
- Server seems to stop responding an awful lot, but usually just waiting a few seconds and reloading will get it going again.
- Zip files often fail to download. More often than not, I get a sorry.txt file instead saying "wrong security key"
- Navigation is pretty bad, particularly for images. No links back to the scene itself, links to the zip files are only present on individual images, so if (like me) you are only looking for zips, not viewing individual images on-site, it might take a while to figure out the zips are even available.
Bottom Line: There is some good content on here, and with newer scenes in HD, I think the future looks promising. Some navigation improvements would help, but the existing ability to browse by DVD, scene, model, tags, and categories keep this from being more than a minor gripe. The connection problems are extremely frustrating, but the low price keeps that from being a deal breaker (if only barely). At the current price, I can definitely recommend this site. When/if the price ever goes back up, some improvements might be necessary to justify it. One minor gripe that i didn't feel like was worth making a "con" of - i wish these sites with single scene downloads would include the model's name in the filename! It is very rare that I think "I am in the mood for scene 3 from '8 Simple Rules 3'" - no, I think "I want to see Mindy Lynn, what scenes do i have?" but... maybe this is just me. Not worth a con, just sayin'. Save me some time: put more data in the filename! Bottom line: recommended, especially at this price. Not without flaws, but i intend to keep my membership active.

EDIT: I don't know if this is new or I just didn't encounter it before, but the inability to queue downloads in a download manager is a major con in my book. Now i have to go back and find all of those scenes again or just forget about it. Frankly i think docking 5 points is the very least I can do.

User session problems

Another con to note, though it may be somehow specific to Firefox on Mac: I can never access all of the content at any given time. When I log in through the site I joined, then follow a link to content on an included site, often I get an error message that my user session has expired. Anyone else had this problem? Know a solution? Tonight it happens to be a certain few sites, last night it was a different few sites. Clearing cookies and restarting partially fixes, then it comes back. Seems like bad cookie management on their end, as I don't have this problem with any other sites. Their tech support advised me to clear cookies (I did, see above), and "try another browser" (I'm on the latest version of Firefox, give me a break). Lame.

Status: Current Member for over 1 year (at the time of review).
Pros: + Quality video (would love HD options but not bad)
+ Thorough: newer content has videos, stills, and screens, all downloadable
+ Newer scenes downloadable as WMV or QT
+ File name includes movie title
Cons: - RECYCLED CONTENT
- No really good central spot for finding updates
- Older scenes have no full-scene DL
- Older scenes difficult to download even clips from
- Somewhat repetitive content
Bottom Line: I have been a member off and on for a couple years now. I reviewed them very favorably before despite a few annoying flaws. But my most recent trip back there has been seriously disappointing. Most "new" content is recycled. Not from other networks, but from these network sites. I already have most of this content, because I downloaded it last year. I hope they start producing new content again, but until then I won't be going back.

Status: Current Member for over 2 months (at the time of review).
Pros: + Some great content, especially older scenes
+ Newer scenes are pretty decent resolution (don't have any on hand to see exactly what it is, can't currently download to check - see cons)
Cons: - IMPOSSIBLE to browse. The site only allows one connection, and I can only browse for a few minutes before being locked out. If I open too many photos in a row, for example, pages stop loading until some time has passed.
- Older scenes no longer have full scene downloads. WTF? Why take a step backward on this, esp when most of you content is all over the web (illegally of course) for free???
- No zip files for pics, pics stored/named bizarrely so you can't even get them with a download tool
- When you do manage to get a download started, the speed is pretty terrible
Bottom Line: I've left and rejoined this site many times since its launch, and it just gets worse and worse. It's really a shame, because some of the content is amazing. But it seems like they do everything they can to keep me from getting to it. I've been trying to download ONE SCENE for weeks now, but I keep making the mistake of checking out a few updates first, which gets me promptly blocked. I don't see how a site like this can stay in business. As I stated earlier, much of their content is freely available - I prefer to pay for my content, but it almost seems like they'd rather I find it elsewhere.

If they ever decide to make it easy for members to get the content they paid for, I'll re-review. For now, canceling my subscription.

UPDATE: good news and bad

This network seems to be undergoing a major update right now. Some of the older content which was DRM'd is reappearing without DRM, and the quality is amazing. Some older content is also now just straight up missing. I assume (hope) that it will be brought back in the new formats eventually.

HOWEVER. Download speeds are a COMPLETE JOKE these days. My average is about 80-90 kbps. Right now it's at 11.4. No joke, and that's not a misplaced decimal point - ELEVEN POINT FOUR. For comparison, downloads from another paysite are at 450 as I type this. The estimated time to finish downloading the newest episode of Contortionist (one of the newer sites on the network) is... oh, haha now it's down to 7.6 kbps and estimated at 31 hours.

Frankly, I should be getting a refund.

Oh, also... The new Flash player sucks. You can't scrub through the content until it has loaded. In light of the download speeds, that basically renders the player unusable.

I'm excited to see the content being brought up to date, but with these download speeds I have to call this a DO NOT BUY. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt due to the transition. But if it continues much longer I think it will warrant editing my review and dropping their score.

Laurel, thanks for the reply.

I'm considering joining but would like to know - as a Mac user, what are my download options? DRM'd WMV will not play on a Mac (no matter what type of license) and often I find that the alternative formats on other sites are poorly encoded.

Can anyone give any info on this? Thanks!

Yeah, it would be nice if they identified what DVD the scenes are from. Again, I didn't even consider this in my review because I don't really care about the DVDs - as far as I'm concerned they might as well distribute their content entirely online (though they'd probably want to boost the quality a little)! In fact, I wish other studios would do this - Digital Playground, for example. They do not allow downloading at all, only streaming. I joined their site once, dumped it immediately, and have never gone back. But that's a different review :)

I had noticed that, and as someone who doesn't often buy DVD's, this is just fine by me. I guess I didn't think of it as non-exclusive, since it is exclusive to the company (New Sensations). It's still not content you're going to get on any other site. But I guess if you do buy their DVD's, then yes, this site is redundant. Thanks for pointing out the omission.

BEWARE CROSS-SELLS

I'm careful signing up for these sites, so I'm not sure how I missed this... But I received an email from terapatrick.com with the UNIQUE username I used to sign up for MyXXXPass the day before, with the subject line "NO LOGIN 24 HRS AFTER JOIN". It was from their support address (support@famesupport.com) notifying me that I had not "yet" logged in to their site, and inviting me to reply to that address if i have any problems.

TWELVE DAYS LATER, after four replies from me, including the ticket number this email said to include, I have not receieved a single response from this third party. I called the phone number and their offices are closed.

I'm not sure what, if anything, differentiates this from a scam.

Nope, not worth it at all. Despite what TBP says, the video downloads DO HAVE DRM.

From the video help page:

Windows Media downloads are for PC users only. Sorry this format is not compatible with Mac/Apple OS. DRM downloads are stored on your hard drive so you can download a movie and watch it later. These videos can only be viewed as long as your Hustler subscription is active. If you cancel your subscription you will no longer be able to view these movies. Windows Media Player will check for an active subscription every few days so you may have to log into the website to play the movies.

--

Incidentally, I've also encountered quite a bit of "This movie is currently not available in the selected format/bandwith speed."

Status: Current Member for over 1 year (at the time of review).
Pros: + A decent amount of EXCELLENT content
+ Downloadable scenes
+ Newer scenes are very good quality
+ Downloadable image sets (both stills and screenshots)
+ Some absolutely amazing girls
+ File naming recently updated to include movie title!
Cons: - No really good central spot for finding updates
- Older scenes have no full-scene DL
- Older scenes difficult to download even clips from
- Somewhat repetitive content
- WMV only
Bottom Line: This is an excellent network. The few flaws are just really not that bad, in my opinion. Take the schoolgirl stuff for example. Yes, it's tired, and yes the scenes all go pretty much exactly the same. But it's sort of tried-and-true, and when someone like Dani Cole comes along and does a schoolgirl scene... I'm all over it. Or Renna Ryan. I have almost every scene she has released, and her scene from Naughty College School Girls (released on Jizzbomb) is HOT.

It can be easy to miss scenes if you don't know how to really dig. If you go to the New Sensations home, you'll see updates from the whole network. But only three, so if you don't check for a few days, you're likely to miss something. And if you use the model dropdown on that site to search for a model, you get results from across sites. But not ALL sites. So it's very easy to get confused, and to miss content. Also, some models appear more than once under different names. My advice: if you have a girl you're looking for, find out what her aliases are and look for them too. On every single site.

That being said, quite a few of the sites are crap. Just old, non-exclusive content that's hardly ever updated. I didn't include this in the cons because really, they give you plenty of good content to make up for it. The other sites are essentially bonus content that i don't like. No big deal.

A note about video quality: For newer videos, it's fantastic. It shows on my system as 888x480. For some reason the picture is slightly stretched horizontally on my system (Mac, using either MPlayer, VLC, or QuickTime the result is the same) but if your player allows you to force 16:9 it's perfect. This may only be on a Mac, have not tested in Windows. Unfortunately, the only file format option is WMV. While this is not a deal-breaker, it's highly irritating that so many content providers opt for the proprietary format designed for Windows. There are just so many platform-neutral formats, I don't get it. So if you have Mac, you'll need to download some third-party components, and it's still kinda crappy. But oh well.

For older videos the quality gets lower. And you don't get that full download link. In order to download you actually have to open a popup for each clip, which prompts you for a password (which as far as I can tell only works in Windows), wherein you will find a streaming video (if you're running Windows) and a link to download that clip. I have been banned from the site a few times for failing at this password prompt a few times in a row so if you're on a Mac, you may find the older videos to be a pain. Again, this would be easily remedied but like many adult sites, this one is clearly designed for Windows. Newer videos do not have the download issue.

In conclusion: This is an awesome network and highly recommended. It's not without its flaws, but i am perfectly happy to accept those flaws and keep renewing my registration.
