A while ago I had some problems with them too. For some reason, my account was blocked and I had to email them to solve the problem. Then I tried opening a new account, and when they discovered that it was me they unblocked the old account and told me to "stop opening new accounts". A bit rudely, if you ask me...
In general, customer support at Streamate is really good (probably the best I've seen in this adult business), but they do seem to have occasional problems with their billing department...
Same thing happened to me once. Entered the free chat, said "hello, how are you", she said "horny" or something like that, I said "good", she said "fuck you" and permanently kicked me off. I don't remember the name of the girl, otherwise I would post it here for "publicity".
All in all, girls are quite nice. I specially love chatting with SexyAngel1 or Lolli, they always have a smile on their face even if you tell them you are not taking them private that they for whatever reason. Others are more "straight to business" and will (temporarily) kick you out thee free chat if you don't seem ready to pay.
Yes, as others have said, the rush of finding a new previously unknown scene that you like is almost as fun as watching the scene in itself. In fact, I rarely look at the porn I download, because I've already seen it and it's not new or surprising... :)
So, it looks like a sub-poll has naturally appeared here: do you use your regular email account for your porn-related issues? :)
So far, Capn, badandy400 and monty2222 use their regular email accounts, while myself, tangub, slutty, and I guess yote78 and JayG, use a specific account.
There are two reasons why I don't use my usual email account for porn: firstly, because I think entering this email into porn sites attracts a lot of spam; and secondly because of privacy issues: I want to be have a clean email inbox which I can show to anybody (for whatever reasons) without suddenly recieving an email titled "your suscription to BigBoobsForever has expired"... :D
P.S.: Hahaha, I just made up the name "BigBoobsForever" as a joke, and now I see that there really IS a website with that name. Amazing!
It depends: I use a special email account only for all things related to porn, and I usually check it every 2 or 3 days; but sometimes, if I am not expecting any particular email, I could go for a week or more without checking it...
I am not quite into solo action: it's ok, but it gets boring; I like g/g action, a lot, and b/g action but nothing too extreme. I like mostly Eastern European and Asian women, but I wouldn't kick an American pornstar off my bed. ;) And of course I have my favorite niche: foot fetish. So I would say: several niches, thank you.
I can see how Denner got confused by this email. I would have probably made the same mistake. The idea of a membership that does not let you watch or download stuff sounds kind of strange. And calling it "trial rights" doesn't clarify much either, unless it comes with a little star and a note which specifies what are those rights.
I wouldn't call this a fraud, really, but I would say it's a very confusing offer. On a side note, I also don't like those big red ads on the 21st Sextury homepage that say that you can get access to the network "now for only 9.95$ a month". What they neglect to add is that this is the price that you get if you buy the annual membership OR if you stay as a loyal member for 4 months.
Anyway, it's obvious that we should always read everything carefully before clicking "accept". But it would probably also be a good idea for Sandstone to calm down before answering to a user's criticism, even if it as harsh as this one.
You probably know this already, but I'll say it anyway.
If you are logged in, when you make a search or choose a set of characteristics on the column to the left, and you get the results (the images of the girls with the yellow "online" label), if you pass the mouse over the image, a small video-screen will open which will let you see if the girl is really online; if she is doing a private session (and you are offered to join); if she is doing an exclusive session (in which case you may not join) or if she is taking a short break.
Also, this option has another advantage: that you can peek at the girls to see how good-looking they are and how they interact with other users, without entering the chat (and allowing her to kick you out if you don't go into private, for example).
Hi, Monty. Well, I would be very surprised to discover that 21st Sextury and DDF shared content: I have always pictured them as the two main competing companies in the area of European (mostly Hungarian) porn. Maybe that set was produced by a third company who "sold" it to both of them... It's a gorgeus set, by the way :)
Hi, monty2222! If this is your first time with DDF, yes, you are up for a treat :) I've been a member of their sites for almost ten years now, and although lately they have somewhat dissapointed me, they are still one of the best companies around for online porn.
As for your questions, I would recommend some of their "classic" models, such as Sophie Moone, Eve Angel, Eufrat, Anetta Keys or Nella; or more recent ones, such as Blue Angel or Boroka. As you say, there are so many good-looking girls, that it is easy to get lost...
I basically agree with your review, although I rated the site a bit higher, because it showed promise. If I reviewed now, I think I would rate it a bit lower (more or less like you), for two reasons: the site is incredibly monotonous, as you described; and also, lately it has tended to rely more and more on backstage sets, which are basically the same "regular" sets but filmed from a different angle with a different camera (this is a problem that also affects other 21st Sextury sites, Sweet Sophie Moone for instance...).
I used to edit them to cut the scenes that I really wanted to keep, when I was pressed for space in my hard drive. Now that I have a bigger hard drive (I mean, in my computer), I am too lazy to edit them, and I leave them just as I downloaded them...
I also feel a bit dissapointed when I join DDF lately. I think they had amazing talent five or seven years ago (Sophie Moone, Eve Angel, Jo, etc.), but since then, they haven't been able to replace them with other models with the same charisma, and 21st Sextury has been able to atract the fans of all those "classic" models by offering them solo sites (some of which are also going downhill, btw).
Right now, DDF offers well produced action with cute models, but it doesn't have that soul or glamour or something extra that it seemed to have...
As others have said, I think it is much less stigmatized than it used to be, specially in (Northern) Europe. However, I wouldn't openly talk about porn with somebody I have just met, just as I wouldn't openly express my political or religious ideas to someone I just met. It's not exactly taboo, but it's still a sensitive topic.
I prefer the kind of "foreplay" that tells a story, sets the mood, etc., more fiction-like. On the other hand, I don't mind interviews, but as a separate feature, to get to know specific models and see if they do have something interesting to say (some do; some don't)...
PC with Windows Vista. I tried installing Ubuntu in my previous laptop, but as I have no idea of programming, it was too hard for me, and I quit and went back to Windows. I am always amazed by how Linux fans say it is so superior to Windows, and it probably is in so many aspects, but it is still much less user-friendly for the technologically limited, like myself.
I've only been to a strip club a couple of times, when I was in New York. I too felt uncomfortable, I didn't know how to act, I had a couple of beers, chatted with a couple of girls, saw one or two shows and left. Not going to another one of those any time soon...
I didn't... until just now. This poll gave me the idea of creating a "fake" twitter account to follow some of my favorite models, directors, companies... I'll see if they can keep it interesting, otherwise I'll just abandon that account...
