Jeez... at least let me have a tour before I spend $50...
I've been thinking of joining this site because it looks like it has material that I prefer. I consider value more than the outright cost, but still, $50 is definitely on the very high side of subscription fees. So you'd think the site would go out of their way to promote the site by allowing a prospective member to see what's on offer. but no... not here. Clicking anything on the main page brings you to the sign-up page. For that kind of tour I'll spend $50 on TWO memberships elsewhere.
Iíll admit that it is probably unfair to criticize a site that Iím not nor have ever been a member, but I think the stats speak for themselves.
Like many here, Iím always on the hunt for new sites. The main Lightspeed sites have long been on my radar because I really like solo girl sites. But since Iíve been burned by several, I tread lightly now.
So in that vein I looked at Lightspeed World, which now appears to offer access to all the Lightspeed girlís sites for one price. That price, $40, is a bit steep but I measure on overall value rather than price alone. So what do you get for that money? Access to ďover 80 gigabytes of original content!Ē Yes, over 80GB! Iím guessing that actually means just slightly over 80 and not 1TB of original content. But it gets better. You like HD video? Well be prepared to be blown away with full 640x480 resolution! For those of you still on dial-up there is also 320x240, but that will still look good on your 14Ē monitor. What else, you ask? How about a daily download limit of 4GB! No big deal, really, since you donít want to be tying up your phone line with downloads for more than 12 hours, right?
Look, in all my posts and reviews here I try to be fair, but in this case the numbers simply donít add up. It looks like the site just gave up a decade or more ago. But I know they didnít because I heard Mr. Lightspeedís lawyer interviewed on a radio program just 18 months ago. And yes, there is a Mr. Lightspeed, but the interviewer did accidentally refer to him as ďMr. Lightyear.Ē Mr. Lightspeedís primary complaint was piracy and I agree with him on that. I despise piracy because it is killing a hobby that I have. As I get older Iíll have to drop some hobbies and I suspect that porn will win out over mountain biking as I creep into my 50s so I want porn to stick around and show that by buying memberships. But the thing is that any membership I buy has to have objective value. 2,000 5-minute videos in 640x480 resolution just has no objective value in a world where I can buy a membership to dozens or hundreds of sites that offer true HD and donít impose such strict limits for less money. And I am talking sites with original content too.
And it can be done. Take sites like ALS Scan. Theyíve been around since before many PU members ranked girls before Tonka trucks and they offer some of the best stuff on the internet, in HD and no limits Ė for a lower price than Lightspeed. Iím guessing that if Lightspeed had followed a similar trajectory as ALS Scan then things might be different.
Iím grateful for TBP and PU for saving me from getting burned. If this site was even half as modern as ALS Scan Iíd join and rejoin and rejoin again.
Everything I wrote in my 2012 review still stands except for two things. First, the site has grown a lot and continues to update regularly. Currently there are 105 DVDs on the site.
The site primarily gives access to several seriesí from Mile High / Reality Junkies. These are:
American Tranny (15 Scenes)
Babysitter Diaries (64 Scenes) Big Breast Nurses (41 Scenes)
Charlieís Porn Family (6 Scenes)
Corrupt Schoolgirls (24 Scenes)
Cougarís Prey (43 Scenes) Couples Seeking Teens (71 Scenes)
DP my Wife with Me (8 Scenes)
Filthy Family (52 Scenes)
Girlfriends Get Even (15 Scenes)
MILFs Seeking Boys (24 Scenes)
Momís Cuckold (69 Scenes)
Office Perverts (48 Scenes)
Pornstar Athletics (15 Scenes)
Too Big for Teens (69 Scenes)
You might be able to tell from the titles, but the two best-served niches here are teens and MILFs and there is a lot for both groups. Many of the titles cover both niches in the same scene. Iím more of a teen fan but the number of MILF scenes donít bother me. It does seem a bit odd to have selected two opposite niches to cover.
One niche that isnít common on the site is anal. Thatís a negative for me but I realize thatís a positive for a lot of people. There are currently only 32 anal scenes on the site and those are split between the teen and MILF genres. (This doesnít include the 15 tranny scenes which probably also have anal.)
The update schedule is regular, but also fairly slow with only one scene being added every four days. Given that the site only draws from one studio the update schedule is understandable. I donít think itís a negative, but you should be aware of it if you plan to join.
The other big change from when I reviewed the site is that like all sites on the Fame network the timeouts when using a download manager have lengthened considerably. Before the change it was impossible to queue more than three scenes because the links would time-out so quickly. Thatís been fixed. There is still a time-out limit but it is much more reasonable and allows you to queue 15+ scenes (720p, approx. 1GB per scene), though this also would depend on your internet connection.
Also like all other Fame sites there are a lot of options for downloads and streaming. WMVs are available in 160p, 240p, 360p and 480p. MP4s are available in those resolutions too and are also available in 540p, 720p and 1080p.
Iíd keep the 88 score that I gave it last time and still recommend the site to anyone whoís interested in what is on offer. I canít confirm if the trial is still full and unlimited but the discount price makes this a pretty good value.
One final note: Iím not saying that PinkPanther is wrong in his comment, but I havenít experienced anything like that in the two times Iíve been a member. If that changes Iíll post another comment.
I'm coming to the end of a month membership and went to cancel. It was a much more frustrating experience than usual so I thought for future members my lessons-learned may be of use.
I'm used to billers like CCBill and Epoch so my default means to cancel is to go to those sites and cancelling is easy. Private's primary biller is Rocket Gate and that's who I was billed through. I went to their site and found nothing for consumers so I Googled "Rocket Gate how to cancel membership" that did take me to a page where I could enter my email and username. The problem is that they had no record of me even though they are the biller. So I emailed them. That was 24 hours ago and I haven't had a response.
The Private site has no link for your account, but at the bottom there is a link for support. That leads to an FAQ page where there is a question about billing. Most of the answer directs you to Rocket Gate, but if you have the same problem as I had then that's not of any use. There is, however, a link to prvtbilling.com. That brings you to a page on the Private website that allows you to enter your username and email address. That worked.
I should also note that I didn't receive a confirmation email when I joined. Those often contain cancellation information. I first thought that could have screwed up my email address when I joined and that would explain the lack of a confirmation email and the inability for the biller to recognize me, but since the Private site itself recognized the email address I'd say I wasn't at fault.
My final advice is that since your membership remains active for the month even after you cancel I recommend trying to cancel early in case you do have problems.
There are several membership options available to this site. One of them only allows streaming while another allows both streaming and downloads. I paid the additional amount for downloads but when I went into the site and tried to download I was told I now had to buy additional 'tokens.' I cancelled my membership and contacted the site but have yet to receive a response. I also contacted CCBill to ask for a refund but they have yet to respond to me too.
Unless the site is willing to make good on what they sold me I strongly recommend avoiding it.
I'll admit that this may be a problem that I alone have, but if you're considering a membership here you should at least be aware of it.
The site offers two types of HD files, on is MPG and the other is WMV. Both are 1920x1280. Both files are around 3GB is size per scene. I downloaded the MPG files and found that there is a lot of stuttering. This occurs with both Windows Media Player and VLC. I've started to replace those with the WMV files and they don't seem to have the same problem.
Like I said, this may be unique to me, though I tested the files with two computers and had the same problem with both.
If someone has some thoughts on what may be causing this I'd appreciate hearing from you.
Can anyone tell me what percentage of scenes are boy/girl?
The preview pages show primarily lesbian stuff, probably over 90% of the previews are lesbian or solo but there are some preview shots of b/g scenes. can a past or current member give me some information on whether this is worthwhile site to join if I'm primarily interested in b/g hardcore?
This is nothing too serious, but knowing this might save some aggravation when joining.
The site bills through Epoch and when you go to join there is one pre-checked cross-sell to Jordanís other site, The Ass Factory. There is also an unchecked cross-sell to Team Skeet for a seven day membership. I unchecked the choice for The Ass Factory since it only had less than a dozen updates in the past three months or so, and I checked the Team Skeet option because that seemed like a good deal.
The problem with the Team Skeet membership is that it is only a TRIAL membership and only allows you to stream one scene. It doesnít allow downloads. Iíll admit that I may have missed something, but I donít recall that the up-sell mentioned this was only a trial membership.
The more annoying issue is that when you go to the Jules Jordan site and select for recent updates they are laid out in a grid pattern. At the top of the grid is a banner ad for The Ass Factory. The problem is that the first three scenes listed are actually from The Ass Factory and clicking on them brings an Epoch confirmation page where you have to opt in. It wasnít clear what I needed to confirm so I did that thinking I was confirming my Jules Jordan membership and now have a membership to The Ass Factory too.
Iím fairly sure that I bear a lot of the blame for this. I suspect that if I could go back and re-read the join pages that the information was buried in there somewhere, but some of the blame has to go to Jules Jordanís site for making the information a bit confusing. Iím sure Iím not the first person to draw these conclusions based on the available information, but with any luck Iíll be the last PU member to make this mistake.
has anyone ever really figured out what the download limit is here?
When I reviewed this network a long time ago I couldn't figure out what the download limit actually was. Some days I was allowed to download 12GB, other half that. But other members here said they had no limit imposed.
The clause in the Terms of Reference that is quoted or paraphrased at TBP is that there is a daily limit of 10 gigabytes of data each day, and additionally up to 15 big movies. I emailed the site back in 2011 to ask what that meant and go no answer.
But now the mystery has deepened a bit. I just went back to the site to confirm the wording in the TOS and there is no mention of the limit. I searched for every term I could think that would be used in that clause and got nothing.
So are there any current subscribers who can provide some insight into this issue? In her recent review at TBP, Vanessa doesn't mention it but it is still mentioned in the site stats.
While I respect the opinions that martinlongbow and RustyJ wrote recently I can't agree with them. At the risk of sounding like a shill I find Evil Angel to be among the best sites on the internet. They do everything right: the porn is amazing with exceptional production values, the downloads are fast, they offer many different ways to stream or download their material, they update regularly and they offer a TBP/PU discount that turns a great value into an exceptional value.
I admit that the criticisms that the other members raised have some validity, but I don't think those flaws outweigh what the site does right. To address the specific issues raised:
- not enough Mike Adriano, too much Kevin Moore: I think Mike Adriano is among the best directors working today and I download EVERYTHING I can get of his so I agree that it would be nice to get more but there is a lot available still. Kevin Moore does a couple of my favorite series so I'd like more of his work too.
- Too much TS: I'm not a big fan of TS stuff either and wish Joey Silvera would bring back some of his older series (Fashion Sluts and Butt Row please!!) There are currently 94 TS DVD posted out of almost 1500 DVDs. While I don't download the TS stuff I realize that there are those who like it and it doesn't bother me that it is there.
- subsequent months more expensive than the first. Yes, this is true. The discount only applies to the first month but every time I go to leave I get offered the lower price.
- 'locked' updates. This is true too and it can be annoying but I agree with jberry169 in his reply that these are sort of a preview bonus we get to see before the DVD hits the streets. There was an Asphyxia Noir / Skin Diamond scene uploaded and locked yesterday that I really want to download so I'll watch to see how long that takes. I'm sure it'll be unlocked in the next month and probably only a week.
Anyway, I'm not trying to undermine valid opinions, but I think that objectively this site is still amazing and I'll continue to come back to it regularly. I'd score it in the mid 90s (and seeing my review is quite old maybe I'll post another review to justify that opinion).
I joined this site today using the trial membership. The TBP page lists the trial as being full access and that was confirmed in March 2013. There has been a change at the site and the trial membership now only allows access to five videos of your choice. Also, these are only available through streaming.
I posted a not on the TBP page too so they may be able to verify this.
Reply from the webmaster re affiliation with Philly Butt Sluts
I mentioned in my review that there was some affiliation between Dirt Pipe Divas and Philly Butt Sluts. That's good news since the Philly site only seems to upload to Clips4Sale. I emailed the DPD webmaster and asked about it. Here's his reply:
"We'll have all the anal stuff from Philly Butt Sluts added to Dirt Pipe Divas. I'm not sure how John will edit it... but if it involves anal sex, it'll eventually find it's way to Dirt Pipe Divas. Also, any new scenes he shoots will go on the site before his clips4sale store."
This is good news and will definitely make me a recurring customer.
I'm a big fan of studio sites (as long as I'm a fan of the studio, of course) so I was intrigued by this site. But clicking on just about any link on the main preview page links to the join page. Want to see what DVDs they offer? Link to the join page. Want to see what models they have? Link to the join page. I'll probably join anyway, but this crap really bugs me. If they're proud of their site then show it off. This tactic makes it look like they're hiding something.
Can anyone verify that this site no longer allows downloads?
I was a member here twice in the past and am thinking about joining again. I noticed on the TBP review page they say there are no downloads available but then the review goes on to talk about downloads. The reported errors seem to be the source for this new information but the claims of streaming-only haven't been verified yet. Can anyone shed some light on this? This was a site I liked but I won't be back for just streaming.
This may only apply to former members, but I just got an email from this network (21 Evil Angel sites) offering a month for only $5. If you're a former member and interested, it might pay to check your inbox.
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?
Whatís up with 18 Only Girls and Diesel Access Network lately?
This may not qualify as a comment, but I thought it made more sense here than on the forum. Apologies if you think I made the wrong choiceÖ
18 Only Girls was reviewed at TBP today and that got me thinking about how the excellent Diesel Access sites used to be one of the best values on the internet. If you recall, if you joined through TBP / PU you not only got a $10 discount from the single-site price, but you got access to every site they had for that lower price. And the webmaster popped in to say hello once in a while.
But things are different today. 18 Only Girls is a stand-alone site with no discount for TBP / PU members. You do get access to Skinny Super Girl featuring Gloria. Iíll admit that.
But if you want access to their other signature site, Young Legal Porn, thatís a separate $30 membership. And, for some strange reason the bonus site here is also Skinny Super Girl.
The same goes for their other sites Ė they are all now stand-alone and $30 per month. Some donít even offer a bonus site Ė not even the same one that is offered with other sites.
To further erode the sense of value, Diesel spun off a separate company with Wow Girls and now Wow Porn that use the same format and even the same models but are stand-alone sites for $30 per month.
I realize that there are some obvious possible answers here, such as their high production costs make this an expensive venture, or now that theyíre established they donít need to offer discounts, but does anyone have any inside information on why this company changed its business model so quickly? They went from being our BFF here to pretending they donít even know us anymore.
I do realize that some of their sites offer five-month access to ďall our 13 sitesĒ but they donít list the sites. TBP lists 14 from Diesel, so my worry is that buying a $100 five-month membership through 18 Only Girls would exclude the other main site, Young Legal Porn.
Has anyone here tried the five-month, 13-site access who might give some advice?
(Not related to this already long Ďcomment,Ē but in my opinion one of the most sensual (and sexy) photos I have ever seen is the lead photo of Gloria on her Skinny Super Girl site where she is lying face down on a white-covered bed looking back at the camera and giving a sultry look. That photo melts every part of me except one. I only mention this because I saw her model photo on 18 Only Girls and she looks TERRIBLE. Yes sheís thin, but some of us like that. That photo makes her look anorexic. It isnít flattering. I know sheís not to everyoneís liking, but the webmaster must have been mad at her the day he opted to use that as her promo picture.)
Does anyone know if Big Wet Asses 22 is available?
If anyone has a membership I'd greatly appreciate information on BWA 22, which includes a very rare (possibly her second?) Lexi Belle anal scene. The DVD shows up on the preview page but EA is known for putting stuff on the preview page that isn't available on the site.
This site is part of the Burning Angel network, which features models with lots of tattoos, some piercings and generally with a Goth or punk look. This, along with Joanna Angel (the site, not the model) are the two lead sites on this network. Apart from the off-mainstream look of most of the models this is a fairly conventional hardcore porn site. It has 200 scenes up and updates with at least two scenes being added per month.
This site is part of the Burning Angel network, which features models with lots of tattoos, some piercings and generally with a Goth or punk look. This site features these tattooed and pierced models in g/g or multiple girl scenes, but lesbian scenes are also available on other sites within the network. The site currently has 79 scenes and it updates with two scenes being added per month.
This site is part of the Burning Angel network, which features models with lots of tattoos, some piercings and generally with a Goth or punk look. Other than the fact that the models arenít generally mainstream, this is a fairly standard POV site. It is a large site with 196 scenes. It updates on an irregular schedule but it appears to be that at least two scenes per month are added per month.
This site is part of the Burning Angel network, which features models with lots of tattoos, some piercings and generally with a Goth or punk look. The niche here is obviously a focus on 18+ models, but since these are the same models that appear throughout the network there doesnít seem to be a need for a stand-alone site. Though I will admit that knowing there was a young-adult-themed site here gave me some comfort when I joined.
The site is small but growing, with 40 scenes. It updates with two scenes per month.
This site is part of the Burning Angel network, which features models with lots of tattoos, some piercings and generally with a Goth or punk look. This site blends the niche of a specific look for the models with sex in a bathroom. Most of the bathrooms arenít private so donít look for public bathroom sex here. The site is small with just 28 scenes and it hasnít updated since March, 2011.
