Reason: Clarifying DRM situation
Pros: Some excellent content
High quality on newer videos
Cons: DRM on older videos
Older videos which USED TO BE DRM-free have become DRM-protected
Older videos don't play on Mac OS
No full-scene downloads
Bottom Line: This would be a great site, but unfortunately it's ruined by bad DRM. I can't even play the older content on my Mac. That's bad enough, but what's worse is I've been a member in the past and it didn't used to be this way! They actually went through and broke all of their videos. Sorry, DRM = dealbreaker.

UPDATE: The older content does have iPod versions which seem to be DRM-free, and play on a Mac just fine. The quality is not that great though. Also the one-minute clips (also low quality) will work. Note that NONE of this is mentioned anywhere on the site. The technical requirements documentation doesn't say anything about it, and it even has a section dedicated to Mac browsers.

This does make one wonder: if you're going to release non-DRM versions of your content, why bother releasing it with DRM as well? The sites seem to have been acquired by Spice TV, so my assumption is that this is just another misguided attempt by a big network to control how its paying customers can use its content. They should at least be up front about this before asking you for your cash...

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.

Interesting, yeah that's exactly what I've done, but it's still spotty. Tonight FuckStudies is the single site I can't access. It's not awful now that I know it changes, I can just kind of rotate :/ They really do have some great content...

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.

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 :(
