Had a little free time last week so I hopped onto this one via the $3, 3 day full trial through TBP. I didn't spend a lot of time here and I think the recent reviews and comments pretty much cover it. Just a few notes of my own:
I made a mistake by failing to notice the "no zips" warnings regarding the photos. Major Bummer as this definitely hurts the site since they offer up to 500 pics on some sets. Most photo sets across the network have nothing of value because they only have 8 to 40 pics but there is no way of knowing how my photos are in a set until you click on the scene you want to see. The internet Stone Age applications continue if you actually go into see the pics (they are good sized at roughly 1200 x 2000) and click on the photo thumbnails. If you click on 6 thumbnails on a page and make the pics full size that means 12 or more back page clicks to navigate back to the previous page. You get the idea here, ignore the pics.
Vids are all over the board. If it has an update stamp before 2010/2011 then it's not worth viewing as it means the scene was probably shot a long time ago and is grainy even at 480x640 resolution. The "540p" or "web hd" is something different that comes up on some recent vids but I found it to only be marginally better than standard resolution (I've never seen a camera with "540p resolution" settings so they're just doing some compressing of an hd file or enlarging a standard vid). The most recent vids have HD (probably several hundred across the network) and all are pretty much professionally done.
There is a fair amount of overlap with most vids appearing on at least 2 sites. The updates are not indicative of when a scene was filmed, I saw some updates within the last year that feature girls who left porn a long time ago. Navigation involves a lot of clicking and really needs to be upgraded. Be aware that the porn star directory is not complete on some sites. Really the best way to get around is to go to an individual site and start cruising the dvd scenes using their search tags (unfortunately you can only search one tag / category at a time).
There is a wide variety of porn to suit just about anyones taste with about 16,000 vids in total, although I'd say only about 1000 scenes have hd standards. I like the look and feel of the Devil's Film, Daring Film and Low Art films as they seem to be offering up more than just standard shoots, actually some artistic thought and production went into the scenes they shoot.
Like I said, I didn't spend much time here and since I'm more of a pic guy the lack of zips pretty much dampened my mood right off. I'd probably score this site in the 82-85 range if I did a full on review.
Saw the new TBP review today and, being that I haven't seen this site in a few years after having a previous member, thought I'd take a quick gander at the preview pages. Uggghhh! The pic updates page showed nothing but content that's been circulating in the web ether for years. In fact I didn't see anything of interest that hasn't been on my hard drive for a long time. The videos looked a little fresher but that may just be because it was mostly solo and lez content which I don't pay as much attention to. Seems like Viv peaked and is riding out the game at this point. No subscription coming up from me.
I took a peek at this site yesterday and was pretty disappointed. Almost all of the hardcore updates since early 2012 are from teenmegaworld / 18xgirls producers (same girls and content). The few HC scenes that are DDF originals are just recycled content from years past. Some of the softcore pics since 2012 are exclusive though but there are very few of them.
Overall, it appears that DDF has decided to pretty much put all of their exclusive hardcore content on their handsonhardcore site and leave the other sites to fill other niches.
Overall, I would not recommend joining this site unless it was part of the overall network or unless you are brand new to DDF material.
Just happened to see the new TBP review today and saw that the review noted exclusive content. Just by looking at the preview page I noted that all the models can be seen on Teenmegaworld, 18xgirls and related sites. Given the high cost / low quantity ratio on this site I'd say save yourself a few pesos and look elsewhere.
I like the AT sites although I haven't joined them in years (I keep finding a way to put it off). I'm glad to see they decided to network all of their sites. However, it's priced at $99 a month. Really! Most of us don't have that kind of porn budget and even if I did I'd basically be forced to get a DL manager and a big ass external hard drive and just rip the whole damn thing in order to get the content. Way too expensive. Their marketing team needs to come up with a new model on this one.
Took advantage of the 1 day free pass just to check things out. Bottom line: worth the free pass but that's all.
First off, I'm grateful for the freebie opportunity but the offerings didn't get me going much. Most of the content is nonexclusive, especially the updates prior to this year. A few sites may be exclusive but the HC niche sites that are part of the network are mostly nonexclusive.
The pics are good sized (1000x1500) with zips but the number and content (pose shots vs. hardcore) vary widely by set. Some pic sets are professional, some are just screen caps.
There are very few HD vids, most are 600x480 at the top end. The HD vids I looked at are not true HD but, then again, most porn sites don't do true HD. TBP says some are true HD but I didn't download many so I can't say for sure. Download speeds were about average (300 to 400 kbs). You do have multiple stream and download options which is nice.
Navigation is just OK. Lots of clicking to get around and the model directory is really only searchable by letter of the models name. Can't search within the individual sites themselves. There are scene tags though and they seem pretty accurate. You can also search by scene tags.
Updates come at best about once every two weeks for each site on the network. Many sites have stopped updating or only have a few updates this year.
Quality varies from scene to scene depending on the original source. Some are dark and poorly shot, some are great. Lots of POV and oral here in the network so if you like that you might like this network.
I could say more but I only spent a few hours here. If I had done a full review I'd probably score it in the mid 70's.
First, I'll note that I haven't joined this site. I just saw it listed as a new site on TBP and took a few minutes to tour around. I'm really only commenting on this place because for anyone over 30, Playboy still has a certain residual place in our "hearts" (insert body part of choice).
This is the site they should have done long ago. You get access to the PlayboyPlus sites that have been around for a while, plus at least some magazine/article content, and exclusive HD vids. It looks nice and professional. If they had done something like this years ago they might have had a chance at avoiding bankruptcy.
The problem I see is that they're too late. Without upgrading the quality and content of the PlayboyPlus sites, they're still behind the curve. Also, I don't see any emphasis on social media or fanboy participation beyond some chat sessions. Everything is still softcore and centered on whatever is left of the Playboy mystique. In other words, I don't see this effort resulting in them generating a new and younger audience. If I want softcore, Met-Art kicks their butt. If I want articles about the "sophisticated player" lifestyle I can find that at any number of other websites for free.
This platform also seems to undercut their other niches. It looks like you get access to Playboy radio, i-pad content and some Playboy tv stuff. I guess that makes sense from a consumer point of view but, again, when you're struggling financially with a shrinking brand does that end up shortening your longevity?
The only way I see them continuing on is if they take this website and really push it on other countries (unknown if this site is available in other languages).
Like I said in the title, I like what they've done but I'm not shelling out money for content that other sites do better and I don't care any more about the Playboy brand and keeping up with Hef and his fantasy lifestyle. I doubt many others do any more. If Playboy wants to exist beyond this decade, they need a paradigm shift. While this result is pretty to look at and has a bunch of content, I'd say this ain't it.
This site advertises a $1, 2 day full access trial. I liked the site before so I thought I'd try it again. Wrong. Pay your dollar and go to website. Trying to access any page beyond the home page results in you being taken to their billing processor asking for an automatic upgrade ($1 for 3 days, $25 for the next 30). According to the terms and conditions you can't cancel soon enough to avoid the $25 upgrade charge so you're stuck paying for the full month. So, take this off your list of cheap places to check out for a few days.
After having been on porn hiatus for a while I logged in today and found Twisty's advertising a $1, 2 day full access trial. Alright I think to myself. Catch up on some of the stuff since I last joined. WRONG. After paying out and logging in you get this lovely little message: "As a trial member you get access to 3 Scenes & 3 Photo Sets hand picked by Twistys Staff". Frickin' yeah. Obviously, don't bother with the current trial offer here.
I decided to give this site a shot for the trial since it also includes Teensexmania.com, BeautyAngels and a network of sites. Despite what TBP lists, the $1 - 2 day trial does not give you full access. You don't get access to the movies and you're not allowed to zip. You can download pics (one by one or with a DL manager I think) but that's about it.
Overall the content isn't bad and it's certainly exclusive but navigation sucks and if you like what you see you can can get reduced monthly membership through TBP on one of the other network sites. Just don't expect the cheapo trial to get you much.
I usually venture back to Twisty's once a year or so to catch up on anything that I've missed when browsing other super sites. Doing my annual checkup I noticed a couple of things:
1. Twisty's has a great full access trial membership for two days for a few bucks (please don't yank this Shap, I dig it). However, it is a bit curious that your fees can vary depending on which entry site you use. I found two day trial prices varying from $3.88 to $2.95 to $1.00 (the one buck deal is through the AnetteDawn site). A little weird but I guess it pays off to poke (figuratively that is) around. Also, you get different billing processors (ccbill or epoch) depending which site you join through.
2. As I'm more of a pic guy and Twisty's has lots of pics I like the site. However, this time around I noticed that a lot of models in both the hardcore and softcore sets seem overly cropped in that you rarely see full body shots. I don't mind closeups and tight shots but especially when it comes to solo models I like to see the whole body more than I what I get here. Just a suggestion for future crop jobs there guys.
While I'm on the pic topic I also note that the photosets seem a bit small. Not many sites push the 30 to 100 images per set but, again, when it comes to solo models a lot of these sets feel like they've been cut short. I don't need thousands of pics but more in this case would be better.
I re-upped for another tour of duty here but I'm pretty frustrated at the download speeds. I have a broadband connection but it's still taking me 90 minutes to download a 800 mb video file. Tried downloading in different formats and different times of the day but the site be slow across the board right now. Get some more servers cooking here Deny.
Granted, the TBP folks look at a lot of porn sites and they don't collect porn like most of us do so they're not always on top of sites that make claims about exclusive content. However today's TBP review score of 81 is misplaced in my book. It is unfortunate when a review basically seems to read like something ripped from the site's marketing department: "All of the material on Velvet Mag is original. They shot it all and you won't find it anywhere other than the hard copies of their magazines." NOT! I joined this site (see my Swankpass review) last year and found it loaded with nonexclusive content. These magazine sites usually claim "exclusivity" on the fact that they may have had the original publication rights to these scenes but the stuff is so old and has been on so many web sites that it becomes meaningless. Looking at the very limited tour pages on this site today (bad sign) it looks like mostly old stuff to me, same as last year. At $20 a month, you'd get more enjoyment out of buying the "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" collectors set DVD than this place.
I was just surfing through some stuff at TBP and noticed that this site has a $7, 2 day full access trial (the 2 day trial is $10 for the full 10 site DDF network). In fact all the individual DDF sites seem to be running this trial. If you've been to this site before and don't need or want everything, then this should give you ample time to fire up your DL manager and grab what you want. It might be a bit much to grab the whole site over 2 days but there you go ... and know you know.
As I slowly work my way through the 21st Sextury sites this one left me feeling somewhat disappointed. Last time I was here (probably 4 years ago) I thought the models were great and there was a good mix of hard/softcore going on. This time around things seem to have slipped in my book.
First, they keep insisting on using the split sets making grabbing them and getting a single vid out of it a pain. Second, WTF is up with the microscopic thumbnails in the photo galleries? They say that rubbing the stump can lead to vision impairment but I don't think I need an electron microscope to get around in the everyday world. Third, slow download speeds: I'm rarely cracking 100kbs on this site. Fourth, the models seem to have slipped. Still some prime booty but more average booty seems to be making it's way into their trunk with too much junk. Fifth, like a lot of the network sites, the tags on the scenes make the search engine pointless. On other sites its doable, here with over 1300 scenes its a pain in the ass. Sixth, some of the navigation tools (like the page jumps) don't work or don't work well. Seventh, some vids just won't download properly (only a few I've found so far but still annoying).
Time to tighten up and clean up the ship on this site. If this were a review I'd only give Sandy a low 80's score on this site. Sorry babe.
Denner posted a previous comment asking what this site was like and, like "The Dude", I abide and oblige. This really doesn't merit a full review since it's a growing site on the 21st Sextury network and the TBP review pretty much lays out the site technical specs.
Currently, there are 105 scenes available. All have the standard one size fits all pic sizes of 1280x850. The vids are mixed. Some max out at 1900x1080 while most only go 1280x850. New or old, it's all over the board. Same with streams, some have options while others are one bandwidth fits all. There is no music in any of the vids I looked at and no camera dudes groping the models.
If you like the girls on Lezcuties then you'll like this site because a lot of the girls who appear there show up here. Only here its all solo work with almost every scene involving dildo play. I can count on one hand (I know that shocks some people) the number of scenes not involving toys.
The production is all high quality and not a lot of these girls appear outside of this network from what I can tell but then I don't track many of the softcore girls that much. The girls all pretty cute, mostly thin and fall into the teenager and early 20's age range.
To the extent this is a solo site it varies from the usual network options. I wouldn't recommend joining the network just to get this site; I do recommend joining the network though. If you like the overall network content then you'll probably like this stuff too. If I were reviewing it I'd score it in the low 80's without considering the network as a whole.
It has been a while since I was a member here and I lost the dvd I had of some of the downloaded vids so I thought I might go back and update my collection. Now I'm not so sure.
I'm glad this site lets you glance over the model directories and updates because everything here seems to be recycled. The most recent updates are shoots from years ago. The model directory has Silvia Saint listed as age 23, Nella and Anetta Keyes as teenagers and that's just the start. From my look, I can't say there is any new content and the content that is here is years old. Old content is just being put up or recycled through the site as new updates.
If you're a newbie and like attractive younger girls then this site is probably worth a trial because it's so inexpensive. However, if you've been a member before I would probably advise you to stay away.
Don't get me wrong, Blue Angel is a hot little Euro minx who does it all. It's just that I don't get why this is a separate site on the 21sextury network.
First, there is zero background info about Blue Angel: no bio, no blog, no web cams or live events, no interaction with her at all. It's just a collection of postings about her and the majority of these are just behind the scenes shoots and videos of her hanging with friends or doing normal stuff. There are only 6 b/g scenes with her and most of the rest are solo poses, lesbian and group girl scenes. This isn't bad considering there are 60 scenes overall but she also appears in other network sites and some of the content here is just a different shoot from another network scene.
With Sandy, of ClubSandy fame, having retired (and apparently unretired now) and Sophie Moone no longer updating I can see why 21sextury might want another flagship girl to build a site around. However, given how limited the interaction is there is really no connection to be made between the subscriber and Blue Angel. She's nice to look at but that's where it ends. If they aren't going to do more for her site then I would say it would have been better just to mix her content into the other existing sites more.
I already said my piece about the network in my 21sextury.com review but I thought I'd chime in since there is discrepancy between Pat362's review and Markymark's comment. Here's my take:
Currently 81 scenes all with pics and vids and zips. Vids go up to 1280x720 and are very good; newest content goes up 1900x1080. Pics are just average at 1280 x 850. All scenes come with screen caps too.
All the girls here are pretty much eastern european hotties in their late teens and early 20's. All the content is exclusive and it updates once a week. The girls English isn't too hot so you don't get much scene dialogue. All scenes are pretty much girl and boy starting out fully clothed in some semblance of a normal situation that pretty much progresses to drilling the brown eye in due course. If you want pics or extended vid sequences of the girl teasing forget it. Not very romantic in terms of believable action but what porn is now a days.
Some complaints about too much focus on the dude and close-ups. Personally, I think it's about average overall and typical of all the video shoots on the network. Sometimes there is a bit too much close-up but it's not intolerable. The dudes seem to be a bit rough at times and aren't the greatest but, again, this isn't high art here.
Video speeds have been getting this month. I've been DL speeds of between 200 and 500 kbs with faster speeds the more channels I have downloading. Again, not great but tolerable. Many of the broken links seem to have been fixed from my perspective.
I would say that Asshole fever is the best of the anal sites on this network given it has over 300 scenes and more b/g and dp action than here and a wider array of models. Still if you like younger anal porn this is a pretty good site. I'd score it around an 84 in my book.
I just noticed this site under the new listings on the TBP home page. I sort of like Jade and, for once, I was actually mildly impressed by the tour, you get to see what all the offerings are. The price is right ($5 for a 2 day full access trial which is probably more than enough time) and you get access to 10 other sites. Just wondering what the quality was like even though it looks like most of the material was shot several years ago.
Duke just posted a review on this site and I had been a member several years ago and posted a prior comment on this site. Since my last comment in 2008 (and stretching my memory) it looks like only a few updates have been added in the last few years. I doubt very much that they are adding anything new or, if they are adding updates, that they're probably recycled. Not a great site to begin with (certainly not worth the price of $30 a month) but I'd probably write this one off as a permanent "no go" if in fact they have stopped updating.
Having rejuiced my Twisty's membership for a few days I thought I'd take a gander to see what's new at BlueFantasies. Guess what? Nothing. The last update was in October of 09. Don't know why this happened but it's too bad as it was a decent site.
For those of you thinking about joining Twisty's or here (still worth a cheap trial membership even though it's no longer updating) here's the run down on what you get:
Pics: About 780 galleries, almost all solo. Pic sizes are only 1200x860 with a few 1600x1070 tossed in. All sets have zip and the quality is very good. No size options to choose from.
Vids: About 435 with virtually all of them solo. All vids seem to be 640x480. Only DL options are wmv, QT and iphone. Again, the quality is very good.
You get the same search engine that they have at twistys when it comes to choosing your model or toy or body type your looking for which is useful. The tags are a bit generic though. The model directory is just OK when compared to Twistys because the data seems a lot less specific.
As I mentioned, if you like glamour and decent quality then this site isn't bad. I woulnd't fork out a monthly membership here, especially since they're no longer updating but if you hop on for on the 2 day full access trial specials available through TBP you might like the offerings.
I reviewed Swankpass last April, barely able to justify giving a 71. I just saw the TBP review that clocked in with a ginormous score of 84. After reading the review and going back to look at the site's preview pages it became pretty obvious why the TBP score is so jacked up. Maggie raved about all the exclusive content available there. That wasn't my experience when I was a member. Looking at the preview pages, I saw page after page of hardcore sets taken from DDF Productions web sites. Most of the softcore updates they had posted have been nesting in my hard drive for years as well although many of the scenes were not necessarily DDF clones. It does sound like the search issues may have been fixed up since I was last a member.
For $30 you can get a membership to Swankpass. For $35 you can get a membership to DDF Productions and see all the sets (Swank edited down their pic sets sometimes) and movies in larger and crisper format. If either amount is too rich for you, try Videobox since a lot of the vids from this site are on that one too.
[Note: After Maggie responded below -- always good to see that we occasionally have an impact around here -- TBP lowered it's score to 81. Still too high in my book.]
