If you want the $5 TBP/PU discount it's available only if you navigate immediately to the JOIN NOW page from the home page. If you choose to browse the free tour to see what they offer and then try to join after that tour, you will not receive the discount.
However with all the recent negative comments posted here, and with that last little bit of intentional misdirection by the site, I decided I really wasn't interested after all anyway so I decided to say the Hell with the site.
I signed up early afternoon of 3/23/09 for the 2 day trial and had full access all afternoon and evening...and into today, 3/24, until afternoon, about 24 hours.
Even though Epoch's confirmation dated 3/23/09 at 1:35pm says "Today's charge is: $3.95 for a 2 day period. Membership renews automatically at $24.95 every 1 month until canceled" I now receive a message when I try to sign on that my subscription has expired. Attempts to get an explanation from customer service at the site and at Epoch are not answered. I did not cancel and actually planned to let the trial roll right into the 1 month membership.
I'll update this comment if and when I get a response from someone at the site or from Epoch.
UPDATE 3/25/09 am (16 hours after loss of access and 12 hours after first communication attempt) - Epoch responded quickly and said that my account shows as up and active and that I need to contact the Webmaster. No reply received yet in response to three separate communications to the webmaster and website.
UPDATE 3/25/09 pm (24 hours after loss of access and 18 hours after first communication attempt) - Still no reply from either the Webmaster or the site's customer service department. In order to avoid a renewal at full rate I canceled my membership through Epoch. I really liked this site based on the short time I had access so I'm disappointed that their support function(s) is so inept and nonresponsive.
The pricing is discounted for TBP/PU users. The monthly price, if you access the site using the TBP/PU link, is $29.95 for the first month and $24.95 for each succeeding month. A 3 month membership is $59.95 instead of $74.95..
I found Stunners.com when I did an asktiava.com search for Diane Deluna (a new, totally gorgeous, babe on Twistys) and did a quick browse of the preview site.
The "join now" price on the site is $24.95, so I did what I always do, I checked back here to see what info I could get about the site and found that the PU/TBP price is $19.95 a month when I followed the link from here to Stunners.com.
It looks like a high quality site and at $20 a month it may be worth a go...but Drooler's comment posted here last year says it may not be that large and/or that exclusive, so I'm back to the "thinking about it" stage.
This is just a note about a site - JanaRocks.com - which is a single girl site for Jana Jordan, who is a babe I found on Twistys (Jana Foxy) and a fabulous set of photos and video on FTV Girls (Yana).
My libido got the better of my common sense so I decided to drop $15 for one month on this site (no trials).
About 15 minutes ago my charge through CCBill went through and during that 15 minutes I drained all 9 videos. All nine are G rated (not even her bra comes off in any of them) and the site looks like it would be tame even by You Tube standards.
I will be checking out the 61 photo sets and the "Jana's Friends" section and will prepare a formal review when I'm done.
Bottom line at this point is that I think i may have just blown $15 that would have been better spent on 3 supersized Big Macs.
If you had any thought about signing up for JanaRocks.com, I suggest you wait for a day or two until I post a review.
The site now boasts 5,003 videos as of 8:00am Pacific today and they continue to add 5 a day (that's a rate of 1,095 per year). They have the largest number now and will be insurmountable as we go forward (unless they are insurmountable already).
I was a happy member of Twistys last year with a 10 month subscription that was not automatically renewed. When the subscription expired, the same deal ($99.95 for 10 months) was no longer available so I "moved on" to other sites.
When I saw a comment about a cheap 2 day trial for Busty Ones (one of 6 subordinate sites that partner with Twistys) on PU, I decided to go back to the PU discussions of Twistys to see if there was a short "trial" available there as well. There was not, so I clicked the link into the Twistys site (that's the way to get the $19.95 per month TBP deal). Lo and behold, I found that they offered a $59.95 [b]six month[/b] price ($9.99 per month). That's a deal that's equal to the $99.95 for 10 months deal I had earlier) and was too good to pass up.
I signed up immediately just in case they changed their minds and pulled the deal.
The changes to the site were quite significant, especially the 6 partner sites and a full members forum that had some good discussions in the technical section. (That shows a pro-active attitude on the part of the webmaster. Offering a forum like that can be very risky for a site that doesn't have its shit together as Twistys clearly does.)
Then I did a quick survey of the various sites and concluded that they were good. My (superficial) rush run-through of the six sites disclosed a few duplications (same stuff on 2 or more sites) which makes no sense to me.
I'm very much looking forward to exploring the sites again.
TBP offers a special price of $14.95 per month for BangBros Network but I'm having difficulty getting BangBros' billing service to accept that price. I sent an email to Khan so he can address the issue. If you were planning to sign up for BangBros in the next day or two, you may want to wait a bit to see what happens with the discount.
No announcements at all so perhaps they are just having trouble with their servers. Or perhaps they're going out of business. Uncharacteristically the sites' Webmaster has stopped responding to posts on the Members' Forum as well.
In any case be advised accordingly before signing up.
The site will satisfy anyone who is interested in what once were called PG (Pretty Girl) photo sets, meaning the photos are the softest of soft core (would pass the strictest censors in the late 60's/early 70's). The videos are, as stated elsewhere, boring and mostly basic photo sessions captured on video.
Being a video guy myself, and having dropped in on the site a few times in the past, I haven't visited in a while. But because I'm signed up for their newsletter, I received an offer to sign up for $19.95 that I accepted.
Contrary to comments made elsewhere, there are many photo sets with the babes in full spread eagle poses with their, frequently large, labia lips on full display.
Conversely, there is no masturbation or insertions of any kind at all, and only a very few of the multiple model sets have any erotic lesbian content at all.
But there's no site that has better "PG" photography that I've run across.
A negative that needs mentioniong is that there is no searchable data base for their huge collection. That means if you want to find a blonde with large breasts, or a brunette with pubic hair, or outdoor active shots, etc., you must look through the entire catalog that can be displayed as "magazine covers" or as head shots.
This review made me curious to see what's up with the site so I went to the "public" site to see what's up. It looks like it's that tired and outdated gimmick about "tricking" unwitting ladies into copulating on camera. The sample trailers are lousy quality and totally unrealistic.
Looks like a tired old site where the owner is simply trying to make a few extra bucks without investing any time, imagination or energy into the site.
After reading all the reviews and the comments, and after checking out the previews, and after reading the replies to my concerns about the apparent paucity of updates, I finally signed up last month.
Wow! This site is far better than I expected (I've had plenty of lousy experiences, as I'm sure many others have had). After spending a few weeks on the site I'm literally overwhelmed.
It's way too soon for me to write a full review on FTV but so far I can't see any way I'll give it less than a 90. At $1.00 per day to start (and a 5 month deal at 67 cents per day) I suspect I'll be signing up for the long-term plan just to get through some of the material in which I know I have an interest.
So far the big pluses are the quality of the videos (even the old scenes that are on DivX only) and the length of each set of scenes. They are going HD later this year so it's only getting better.
The minuses, for me, are the fact that they do not permit a download of an entire "episode" but require multiple downloads (a minor annoyance) and rather small and modest quality photos of most of the babes (again a minor annoyance because I'm in it for the video).
Download speeds are slow, but not terrible.
As should be known by all who spend anytime doing front end research, there's no hard-core sex, but the goings on should provide any guy with a heartbeat a lot of woodies...per episode.
So far all I can say is that this is an amazing site!
Just an add. I was thinking about signing up again but TBP's discount has disappeared. They now want $14.95, which is far too high for a static site with low res material.
The only good thing is that they have added access to 12 sites, all with "...next door" in the name. The sites look like they may warrant spending $15 to check things out for a month, but the motivation went away with the TBP discount.
I spent a few hours matching the title list of X Movies with that of VideoBox (I'm a member of both) and found that virtually every title posted in 2007 is also available on VideoBox.
Accordingly, I decided to cancel my membership in X Movies because it has only one update per day compared with VideoBox's 5 per day.
That's when it got interesting. The street price for X Movies is $29.95 per month. The TBP discount brought that down to $19.95 per month. When I went through the cancellation process a few months ago, the site offered me a "please stay" price of $9.99 per month. I accepted. Then last month I decided that, because I had access to the same videos on VideoBox, I decided that I could use the price for two 1/3 pounders at MickeyD's, so I cancelled again. This time the "please stay" price was $5.99. I said OK and remain a member.
From $29.99 to $5.99...that's a Hell of a discounting policy!!!
The updates are now down to about 1 per week. I've been dragging my feet before signing up to see if this site is like others where they are selling their existing content rather than working on new stuff.
Is there anyone out there who has any information about the rate of updates expected in the future? $30 per month for 4 new updates seems really very steep. (Seven or eight, as previously suggested is OK but 4 is rather thin.)
Also, does anyone know if the 5 Gb D/L maximum per day is still the limit?
I've been a VideoBox subscriber for a long time (2+ years) and am very impressed by its continuing low, low price, the volume of content (over 1800 videos added each year), the "review" section where users can post comments about each video and, indeed, each scene, and a reasonably accurate (about 95% of the time) model search interface capability.
With 5 new full videos added each and every day, there are some "non-mainstream" videos, (trannies, midgets, etc.), far more than any other site and no limits at all.
They have now added a flash feature so a member can check out a scene in good resolution with no waiting and also have an algorythm that will suggest videos based on a mermber's viewing history. (This feature can be disabled if a member doesn't want his history tracked.)
For price, volume of content, quality and simplicity of the various features, I feel TBP's score of 98 is well deserved. (But if your into photos, not video, this site's not at all for you. No photos at all.)
