I see this listed as being owned by Viv Thomas, and to be honest, looking at the preview page, that does not look anything like new content. Even worse, one of the new videos says it was released in November 2013. Just a friendly warning to those seeing the high reviews pop up.
I'm not saying it isn't new content, but that "reunited" set with Eve Angel in the preview looks like a set I have from the mid-2000s.
I haven't decided whether to write a re-review of Videobox, but I did add the Japanese "Soft on Demand" channel and thought I would share some info on it for anyone interested or maybe even warn others.
I've always wanted to join a Japanese video site, but wondered how I would feel about the mosaic. Lets get that out of the way first. Every scene I've downloaded from Soft on Demand has the mosaic/censorship. There isn't a search filter for uncensored, so I'm guessing it's all censored. I have to say it doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would. In a way, I even thought the mosaic censoring gave the content a more believable feeling (in voyeur and public scenes especially).
These are the numbers for the channel.
126 DVDs/564 scenes as of 5/20/2013
I joined with 7 days left in my Videobox membership and the prorated price was $7.50.
Maybe the biggest selling point to the content are the fetish scenes. There definitely seems to be more creativity in these scenes than the American counterparts. I should also mention, no scene I've watched has English subtitles, so this does take away some since some of the scenes have 25-30 minutes of story building up to the last 10-15 minutes of sex. To put the amount of fetish content into perspective, 347 of the 564 scenes are listed as fetish.
My feeling towards this channel is pretty simple. If I had joined it for the full month it would have cost in the $30 range just to add it. I wouldn't have been happy about it. Joining for a week at the prorated price though, gave me a pretty good view of Japanese porn without the big price. I would recommend adding it for a week or less. I am going to keep roughly 30-35 scenes I downloaded from it. I still prefer Vivid's channel and even Kink's channel.
And one last note, there are no HD scenes or DVDs on this channel.
I admit, I'm a porn hoarder.
I download dozens, sometimes hundreds of videos, before I even watch one. But this isn't a pornaholic anonymous meeting.
The problem I'm having, quite a few, I'm going to estimate 30% of the videos I'm downloading are not fully downloading. I don't know if the server is resetting or if I'm just downloading too many scenes at one time. I don't use a standalone download manager anymore and I just download 8 videos at a time through Firefox.
I chose 8 as the number since I download by model. Inside the model's page there are 8 videos per line, so it makes it easy to keep up with what I've downloaded and what I haven't.
Any ideas on why the scenes aren't fully downloading?
I've cursed Videobox 3.0 to hell. Then found some positives from it. Then cursed it back to hell. I was so frustrated the last time I was a member that I decided not to join it for awhile.
On my recent join though, everything seems to have improved.
Not only is the navigation not giving me any problems, they also are stacking up the HD DVDs with nearly 800 or roughly 4,000+ HD scenes. They also are offering quite a nice combo package of their extra channels. It was at sign-up, 5 channels for $50. That's a pretty big savings, but I still prefer to wait until a few weeks have passed then add then channels at prorated prices.
One last note on the Roku comment, I did receive the free Roku offer, but it was only when joining for 18 months.
I haven't been seeing as many combo offers from Nubiles in my email inbox lately.
I've been waiting for that Nubiles + Anilos offer that Nubiles webmaster talked about trying to do in the future. Anyone seen that one or if their webmaster is around, any news on when that combo will be available?
I mainly joined this site thanks to the discount price. Just thought I would throw that in as a reason for other webmasters to take the discount route.
I'm still a little iffy on the whole heartcore genre, but I do like the content better here than on the other heartcore sites. I have a few of the same complaints I had with Sex Art, I don't understand why solo sets are included, unless this model is extremely good at masturbation, dirty talk and has a lot of charisma. Eve Angel didn't do the talk at all, but she set a standard very few solo models reach, thanks to her ability to communicate with body movements and eye contact with the camera. The other is more minor complaint and it is the girl/girl content. I don't understand why one of these heartcore sites haven't tried 100% boy/girl. Maybe one has and I haven't found it yet?
Either way, for me, I liked it much better than Sex Art. Will review it over the next week or two once I've had a chance to see it all.
Besides TBP not doing business with this company, I can say I won't be anymore. I joined it from an email promo and had to jump through hoops to cancel. I really don't remember being a past member, but that's what the promo email said. If I was a past member I hadn't kept any of their content and can say with confidence that I probably won't keep more than 4-5 scenes max from this recent join.
I noticed this site in the new listings on TBP. I was a member of Melissa Midwest years ago, nice to see this new one is packaged with Melissa Midwest's site and other similarly themed sites as well. This Val is worth checking out if you're into younger models with athletic bodies, she looks like she just stepped out of cheerleading or gymnastic practice. Really nice thighs which you don't see very often these days. Of course they've got that stupid "play free video" crap where you click to watch a trailer and it takes you to a sign-up screen.
Might also be worth noting for those who like exhibitionism. I had forgotten about Melissa's site having some public sets.
Does anyone know if this is the same site/studio as the DVDs by the same name? I remember downloading some from a DVD site. I only ask because those seem to have been older scenes, maybe 2007 or so. Also am wondering if it includes any other sites since it is through the Fame Network. Thanks ahead of time if anyone has any info.
I've been hesitant to join this site dating back to a discussion in the forum well over a year ago.
The biggest reason. On the network's main site it lists the network sites included in the membership. Every single site listed says, "16 scenes".
If you go to each of these separate sites it says in the top header "100+ vids". Now I'm counting 19 sites. As you can see, 19 sites with 100+ scenes each is a lot different than 19 sites with 16 scenes each.
This further concerns me because if you go to each separate site there's only 8-12 previews showing in updates. I don't know if the preview just needs to be improved to show all scenes available, or information edited, like all 19 sites having exactly 16 scenes or if the top menu on each site (100+ vids) needs to be edited. That's way too many questions to answer. I've always thought the content looks good, but I'd like to see some more definite numbers on quantity before joining it.
I hadn't ever seen this model or site until the review recently posted. Since I like, even usually prefer, solo models, it made me take notice.
On the TBP review in the notes over to the side it says, "Owner verifies that there are no restrictions on Europeans joining these sites." My question is, is this talking about with the download limit? It's not that I mind since I don't know if Europeans have slower internet connections or if the sites servers are maybe in Europe and that makes less/more stress on the servers. I'm mainly just trying to clarify that the restriction the note is talking about is on the download limit and there isn't some other restriction. I can work with 9 GB/day limit, so it doesn't bother me much and would give this network a try as long as I know there isn't other restrictions.
I have my month or two per year where I join the lesser known DVD sites. While I still have mostly praise for DVD Box, rated in an 85 awhile back, something feels familiar here. The price ($5) makes it a nice join for a month while you're looking for rare scenes or if you're just looking for a site to hold you over, but if there's one negative, if you've joined any of the other lesser known DVD sites like Porn Access and all the sites they have, you most likely aren't going to find anything new here. You may though. I mainly use it to find sites I've either deleted or lost, it's a good, cheap way to get those back, but on the other hand, the quality here is now becoming close to too low. I haven't found any HD DVDs, still I guess for $5 you can't expect too much. I would rate it about the same as my last review of it. Its biggest selling point is its value if you don't have a lot of DVD porn since you could fill a hard drive up for a low price.
Not for sure if others receive promos from ZTOD and their sister studios 3rd Movies or Black Ice Pass, but the latest one I received made me think Black Ice was going to start updating again. I could be reaching a little when I say I'm wondering if they're releasing Black Ice style DVDs on ZTOD since Black Ice Pass itself is dead? I know in my last review of ZTOD, I mentioned how the search engine was seemingly becoming for all 3 of their studios, instead of having to go to each studio's site to find specific models for each site. Either way, the ZTOD join is just as good as the last time I reviewed it. With the various problems on Videobox and the continued high production quality on ZTOD's DVDs, I would bump ZTOD ahead by just a little bit, maybe 1-2 points. Once my membership is up and I have a chance to see if they are updating Black Ice ethnic girl style DVDs on ZTOD, I will either write a new review for ZTOD or will post a comment.
*Edit* Just noticed ftvgirlsonline.com has a separate listing here on TBP/PU. This is the same site and the price is $29.95, not the $24.95 listed. Looks strange that the site isn't listed as owned by the same company as FTV. I'm pretty sure it's just a mobile/tablet version of the site.
I joined FTV through a promo ad on Twistys, I think it was Twistys. Instead of sending me to ftvgirls.com where the regular site is, it sent me to ftvgirlsonline.com. The content was all the same, but the site did seem faster and less clunky, but I don't know if this is like a FTV new version that they are testing out or if it's just their own clone of their site. I'm holding out hope that it's a new version and they are going to work more on the navigation and download issues.
The DL limit seems to give me some kind of accrued limit. If I don't download anything for 3-4 days, I can go way over the limit of 10 GB per day. If I hit the limit everyday, it's giving me between 9-10 GB per day before shutting me out.
Still, I wanted to share the overall amount I downloaded in a month. I do not download the HD versions. I download the 720x480 videos and most picture sets. For the last month, I have downloaded 382 video scenes, 298 photo sets and hit the limit 5 times in one week. The total amount of filesize this equaled is 242 GB. I was going to do a re-review since it's one of my highest rated sites, but I can't see taking that much off my score since I just downloaded enough scenes to last me for one per day, for more than a year.
My score would lower just a little based on principle, maybe 3 points, but I wouldn't be able to justify it enough to write an entire new review for it, outside of saying, "Taking 3 points off for the DL Limit".
I tried this site out for a month while a member on another Kink site. If you're looking for different than the norm, this is the place to start. You also get a bonus subscription to Men in Pain. Everything is the same as it is on other Kink sites. I didn't download all the scenes on Divine Bitches, but I do believe every scene has the HD option on videos. The pictures are separated into chapters which will always be an annoyance with Kink sites.
I know at least one member has mentioned Ashley Fires. She has quite a bit of content on here. Men in Pain has the very underrated Jasmine Byrne in ways most porn fans have never seen her. Really, the majority of this content is going to be different than nearly everything you've seen.
A bit of a warning ahead of time. There are what I would consider extreme cuckold scenes blended in. I'm still not real familiar with the depth of the cuckold genre, but I have always liked the sites that do what I guess is a lesser version of cuckold, where the husband watches his wife have sex. On this site, there are some of those, but there are also some where the husband is forced to give the wife's lover a blowjob and/or take the cumshot. So things could be going to an extreme there. These scenes are limited to the Divine Bitches site. Men in Pain is more along the lines of one on one femdom.
I can't say I would recommend it unless you're into the genre. For me, it was okay since I do like the dominant female scenarios. It goes well beyond the mainstream porn world though. Definitely one that you will want to look at the preview of before joining. A big positive for me was the models. Outside of a couple of Kink sites, you won't find a lot of well-known models, but Divine Bitches has quite a few. Lots of Isis Love on both sites for fans of Isis too.
I joined this site awhile back, maybe 2010, and thought it had a ton of potential. Back then my thought was it was some kind of spinoff of FTV since I know FTV shoots quite a bit in Arizona and Sun Devil is usually associated to Arizona. The layout also has a FTV look to it with the magazine style thumbnails for each model. I still have some content from it, mostly photos, but the preview isn't being helpful unless of course, they stopped updating since it only shows a small section of models. They also had the public tease/exhibitionism like FTV. I know that FTV spun off at least 3 solo model sites and pretty sure those have all stopped updating. Though let me make clear that I'm not saying it is FTV that owns or runs this Sun Devil Angels site. It very well could have been a site ripping off FTV's style for all I know.
I have a 2 month membership so I will give them the full 2 months before reviewing it since my review wouldn't be that fair or even that positive right now.
The quality is very high. I really like the photo sets as well. The ones I have downloaded top out near 6000 long end on the pictures.
Video quality is very high as well, though a little confusing. I don't know if they are doing something to optimize bitrates/file size, but full length 1920x1080 files are only 200-300 MB.
One reason the video files are small is because the time of the videos. I haven't seen a video over 20 minutes yet and the average seems to be in the 14-15 minute range.
As I had worried would be the case, the picture sets are better than the videos. I believe the basis of this site is really good, but it's going to take nearly perfect execution to pull it off. Most of the models, especially females, are younger 18-22 range, and I'm not for sure how believable an 18-22 year old can be when it comes to passionate sex.
To my surprise, there isn't much dialogue or story with the scenes which was something I was expecting a lot of. On the other hand, there is the Kamikaze Love series, which I downloaded all of, only to end up deleting all of because it was like watching an HBO after dark movie.
I will give it the two months before reviewing it with the chance maybe their steady updates will start showing some improvement.
As others have mentioned, DDF is running a very good promo right now, but it has one big problem or maybe two. One is the right border cross-sale to Porn Access, two is that it doesn't look like you can change your credit card info. From the best I can tell it's an offer for past members and it is going to charge your card they have on file for you since it signs you up with your past username and past password. This is a problem because my credit card expired back in March and I now have a new one with a new CVV code or whatever it is called, the 3 digit number on the back. I'm not for sure why they would use this method to sign-up, especially with a huge discount and a marked cross-sale. I'm not insinuating anything except their promotion could be hurting itself since I don't think it would be possible for my card to be approved. My last membership was in May 2011, so surely they would know credit cards expire?
In a recent membership to Videosz, I noticed that Videosz has over 200 DVDs from Erromax, the studio that most of this site's content comes from. I wouldn't say not completely exclusive since they only had DVDs from 3 of the original Erromax sites, but it could also be a good way to check out some of their content. It could also be why there are posts here about old content disappearing.
Like Jay's comment, Fame Digital and their other networks, use the "it's way over there on the right pre-checked cross-sale". Ran into a second problem when joining since I joined Sweet Sinner on the same day. My Fame Digital account wouldn't login. I clicked to reset the password. Then realized both networks use the same cancellation process which includes inputting your username and password. Well, I used the same username and password to join both. I guess the system didn't pick it up when created or it would have said username already in use. Instead, they sent me a new username and password with 3 numbers added to the front of the original username and 3 added to the password.
Also found the cancellation process a bit frustrating since it says, "If you do not receive a cancellation email, your cancellation might not be complete." I didn't even need to go look in my email to know I didn't receive it. But I did go look and sure enough, no cancellation email for either. Went back and did the cancellation process again, my account was still showing up, cancelled again, no cancellation email. Somewhere in here, I was getting pissed off. I ended up waiting for a few days since I remembered the delay before their system noticed the duplicate username. Sure enough, 2 days later, I received the cancellation confirmation email.
I thought this was worth mentioning since the site is only $9.95 the first month, $29.95 for the second month. If you were wait until the last minute to cancel, it's very possible that they could charge you for the recur and say their system hadn't processed your cancellation request. Really good network overall, but that out of place cross-sale combined with the slow cancellation request process does at least make me feel like others should be warned. That's what that out of the way cross-sale does to your credibility.
I would agree with most of the recent reviews on Sweet Sinner and the sites you get with it, but I guess I didn't skim the reviews enough to see the lack of zips on photo sets. I then ran into the same problem on some of the Fame Digital sites, owned by the same company. I wouldn't say I joined either of these networks for pictures, but there were several scenes I would have liked to had pictures from. I probably wouldn't have thought anything of it if they didn't include a photos link. Once you let me see them, you have to give me the zip option or you're kicking my OCDC. Some of the photo sets look like real photo sets and not just screenshots. Why go through the trouble of taking these pictures but making them unavailable as zips?
Either way, the network, similar to Fame Digital is worth the low price for video collectors, but if things like no zips annoy you, you might want to act like that "pictures" link isn't there.
I would have reviewed this site, but because of job duties ended up missing the last two weeks of my membership. Admittedly, I wouldn't have joined this site if not for a promo Kink sent to join it at a much reduced price.
My feeling with this site is that it wasn't what I expected. As someone who isn't really into BDSM, but love Kink's "live" content, I was left with the feeling that this site would be much better for those who love BDSM, but are less into the live part. There is a voyeuristic feel to the content as well as exhibitionist, but some of the BDSM was just a little more than I can enjoy and the live parts aren't like the other Kink sites where a live crowd is brought in to watch.
I could be wrong there. The scenes generally revolve around a group of dressed people doing casual things like eating, cleaning, while a dom or doms, dominate a sub or subs, right in front of them. Where I could be wrong in this not being an actual live audience of normal people is that the "guests" are dressed as if they are at a social event. I think my believability factor is being pushed here. I can't imagine a group of everyday people going out and plunking down cash for a thousand or two thousand dollar outfit to watch someone be dominated, but again, I could be wrong. It's hard for me to see myself doing that so of course it makes it less believable for me.
On Ultimate Surrender's live shoots the crowd is a group of normally dressed people in t-shirts, jeans, shorts and while those are likely planned as well, with crowd/performers interaction, I find it more believable.
Not to down this site because I've never seen a bad Kink site. As always, the content is very high quality technically and in creativity. If I get another promo to it, I will definitely give it another go, but I can't see paying the non-promo price for it. Would definitely recommend it for those who like BDSM and even more of a recommendation if they like voyeurism and exhibitionism. The best compliment I can give is that I think the site is a bit ahead of its time. The other reason I wouldn't review it is I didn't even get a chance to try out the live cams or raw footage sections.
I'm not for sure how long Tera fans can expect to keep getting new updates, but the site has updated monthly so far this year. If you'll notice on the TBP review, it had stopped updating in March of 2011. I don't know if there is a model who has aged more gracefully than Tera and here's hoping there are more updates to come and not just some stuff they had stashed away.
Also if interested, it is a much better deal to join through Fame Digital since you get this site plus 25 others, where as if you join through Tera's site you only get 16 other sites.
This is one of those learn from my mistake posts. Bang Bros are now offering more than 10 different addon packs, but you can only add them for the special prices once you're inside the members area of Bang Bros. Their biller, while not real well known, has never given me a problem and the biller itself replies to any problems with 24 hours from my experience. I had signed up for Bang Bros then added the Super Pack. When I went to cancel, I canceled "Bang Bros" from the support page. That didn't fully work. It canceled the Super Pack, but not the Bang Bros membership. After I went back and looked, after an email to their biller, there was a second membership listed on my account, which was Bang Bros itself. I hadn't canceled it. They could do better with this by listing the Super Pack as Super Pack and not Bang Bros, but I could have clicked the drop down box to see two accounts too.
So if you add anything besides Bang Bros, be sure when canceling to use the drop down menu to see the other accounts so you can cancel them too. In a way, I felt like this is misleading, but in another way, I can see how maybe someone would just want to cancel the addons, but keep Bang Bros, so it's iffy as to how you take this practice.
