I joined Bangbros earlier this year, but canceled after being double billed. Maybe it has gotten better, but they have virtually non-existent customer support. I emailed them about the double billing and did not receive a response for well over a week. I find that level of customer service to be pretty poor, also canceling was quite a chore.
They have some attractive girls and a nice archive, but the video quality of their scenes could be better (best I have seen is 720p) and it seems a lot of their websites are no longer updating or updates are infrequent at best. Can any recent or current members confirm it is still the same in regards to billing/support/canceling or has it gotten better?
I joined BangBros yesterday and just after my first log in i realized that not only BanBros is unlocked but also: Dancing Bear, Haze Her, College Rules, CFNM Show, Brandi Belle and Busty Adventures.
I only joined BangBros and im afraid that they will charge me for all the sites listed. Anyone experienced the same?

Huge amount of videos up.
Good variety of actresses.
HD videos look very good.
Various downloading options.
Sneaky sign-ups/cancelling process is questionable.
A number of the "sites" have few videos or stopped updating long ago.
Way too much pre-action scene intros.
Some scene duplication across sites.
Suspect they choke downloading speeds after a certain point.
First, let's get this out of the way; I clicked on what I thought was a preview video for XXX porn and suddenly I joined the site. Hmm. Strange. It would not have been bad save for the fact that I just paid $20 for about as many updates.
The cancellation process is also questionable; it makes it seem that I have to cancel from every site rather than the main one I joined. Beware.
Outside of that, the model variety is pretty good, and the scenes largely well-filmed. I noticed some of the newer 1500kbs scenes (for which 3000kbs scenes existed) look very rough; as if they were trying to duplicate the 3000kbs scene with the same basic dimension settings. This only appears on a minority, however, and all of the other (older) 1500kbs scenes looked good.
While disc space is becoming cheap, I can still do without the scene intros, with the bozos talking to the models and such (or just talking to the camera). I don't need video of some guy driving a van for 30 minutes, thank you. For many scenes, about half of the time is non-sex, which is way too long. Call me old-fashioned, but to me, a good scene is about 15 minutes long, and mostly action. I've got better things to do than to spend all day downloading the scenes then later editing out the stupidity. So, if you're joining this site, and I do recommend it, better have a fast connection and a John Holmes-sized hard drive, if you know what I mean. Were it not for this, my rating would certainly be higher.
There are a lot of pseudo-sites up, i.e., sites with 20-50 videos and are no longer updating. It would be better to roll these into other sites rather than trying to impress us with the number of sites.
I don't know if anyone else who is a member of the Bang Bros site have been having problems. My problem that I have been having is that when you try to download either the movie or the zip picture file there serves close the connection to download the zip files or the movie files.
I got an email on Thursday for a site called XXX Pawn. It wasn't listed here so I checked it out from the email. It looked interesting and I would definitely consider joining so I clicked the link to "Join Now" and I can't accuse them of lying. I wanted to see how much the site subscription was but instead a page popped up thanking me for joining. A bit of digging revealed that this is a new Bang Bros site and because I was a recent BB member they obviously retained my credit card information.
My advice is to make sure any "join" link you hit from an email isn't from BB or you might be in for a nasty surprise.

- A mega-site that still manages to get specialties right
- Something for everyone
- 2-3 updates per day
- Broad spectrum of niches
- Many different types of models
- Logically laid out site
- Many complaints of misleading practices
- Links time out very quickly (2-3 minutes)
- Not all sites update
Bangbros seems to be the most polarizing of the mega sites that gets reviewed here, and it doesnít really have to be that way. The sites included with the basic network are large, many (but not all) are updating regularly and all offer some great porn. But working against BB is the perception of misleading signups and shady billing practices. It seems unreasonable to me that BB isnít aware of these concerns since the misleading signups are obviously a choice they made (and the billing flows from that) and if they are aware of the concerns, it baffles me why a site of this calibre would continue to do that.
BB really needs no introduction, but Iíll add a quick one in case someone has just discovered internet porn. BB is a large network of sites, which isnít unique, that offers sites catering to just about any niche a member could be interested in. Anal? Lesbian? Big breasts? Reality? Glory Holes? Theyíre all here. What sets BB apart from most other mega-sites is that (at least in all the niches I downloaded) they are done really well. So many other mega-sites have a feel of a low-cost buffet where your appetite will be sated but you wonít rave about the quality. In the niches I viewed I was pleasantly surprised to see that just because the network covers so many niches that they still seem to be able to understand what makes good porn within a specific niche. For example, I love both anal sites and glory hole sites and the BB sites Mr. Anal and Glory Hole Loads are among the best of each niche that Iíve seen. Each could easily be a stand-alone site and still have value. I have every reason to believe that the same thing applies to the niche sites that Iím not interested in.
The other great thing about BB is that they offer models from a range of ages, body types and ethnicities. The models also range from A-listers to relatively unknowns.
Iím going to break with my own convention of providing a lot of detail in a review because I donít want to risk misleading anyone. The reason for this is that I added an optional ďSuperPackĒ of sites that appears in the scenes available to me. To give the number of scenes available would include those and mislead someone who buys the basic membership. But donít let me mislead anyone in the other direction either: the basic membership includes thousands of scenes. For a first-timer or a recurring member there is real value here.
The site started adding HD videos in January 2009. Prior to that the videos were available in WMV (852x480, 1500kb/s), and MP4 (720x404, 1000kb/s and 852x480, 1500kb/s). The HD videos are in MP4 and come in at 1280X720 at 3000kb/s. Those arenít the best the industry has to offer, but they look good on both a monitor and a 50Ē TV.
The network is logically laid out and has a search function and also uses tags. I canít speak for the effectiveness of those, as Iíll explain.
Perhaps the biggest issue with the network is their apparent use of misleading upgrades. Many PU members have reported that all they have done is click on a thumbnail and ended up joining something that they didnít intend to join Ė and being billed for it. I have good reason to think that this is an accurate description of what can happen, so in the interests of providing a public service Iíll make four recommendations:
ē If you only subscribed to the main network, when you go to the main page ONLY click on the link to the ďBang Bros Pack.Ē Thatís what you bought and paid for. Clicking on any other link MAY cause you to join that site.
ē When youíre in the BB Pack that you bought, be extra careful about using the search function and tags as these MAY bring you scenes in a site outside your pack. Opening that scene MAY cause you to be signed up.
ē Keep your joining email Ė it will provide you a link to a site where you can cancel. (This worked for the main network for me, but I did need more effort to cancel the add-on even though I had the right link.)
ē If you donít want to be rebilled plan to cancel a bit earlier than usual in case you have problems. Your membership will still be active until the end of the subscription Ė at least it was for me. (I should also add that even though I had problems cancelling the add-on it was quick and effective.)
One other minor issue is that while download managers seem to be permitted, the short life of the links make it impossible to use a manager to queue downloads. Links die after 2-3 minutes, so even with a fast speed (I saw 11MB/s regularly) queuing more than two HD scenes wasnít worth it.
So would I recommend this site? Absolutely. They are among the best Ė and maybe the best Ė mega-site on the internet today. They offer something for all but the most extreme tastes, and what they offer is top-quality. The website is logically laid out and easy to use. My bottom line with BB is much like it would be for a lot of sexual activities: have fun, but go in with your eyes open and use protection.
I added on a group of sites called the "SuperPack" to my BB membership. I received an email with the joining information (with the same username and password as my main membership) and with a link for customer service that was different from my main membership. I followed the link to cancel the SuperPack membership and it's the same page as the main site where you have to select which site you want to cancel but "SuperPack" isn't listed. My confirmation email said I joined through Dancing Bear (which is part of the Pack) but the site said I didn't have a membership there.
Also, there is a two-part captcha where one part of it has to be the most difficult to decipher that I've ever seen.
I haven't had any billing issues, but my advice is to cancel any add-ons early in case you have problems. I've sent them and email and I'm hoping that cancellation isn't a more of a problem than it is already.
Just thought I'd chime in with my impressions. I've been a member of this site for over a month and haven't had any shady billing issues yet. Like people have said, they do some tricky things to make you think you have access to things you don't, but if you're careful and only click on things that are part of the "BangBros Pack" then you should be fine. It is frustrating though.
The main "HOME" page of the members area is full of sites you don't have access to, but it's displayed in a way that could trick you into thinking you have access to those sites. At the top of this "HOME" page it says: "Your Library - Listing of the products you have access to", but you don't actually have access to most of these sites unless you pay another $19.95. When they say "Listing of the products you have access to", they don't actually mean these sites are part of your current membership, they mean you can add access these sites if you pay more...so, their wording is somewhat deceptive when they say "Listing of the products you have access to"...but problems can be avoided if you are careful and have read the warnings in the comments and reviews here on The Best Porn.
Rather than just take you to the area where you actually have true access (such as the "BANGBROS" tab or "ALL WEBSITES" tab at the top of the site), they start you out in an area full of sites that you don't have access to yet. However, the thumbnails for these sites have small lettering under the image that says "get full access for $19.95", so there is at least something there to indicate that you don't have access yet...but if you don't pay attention, I can see how you'd think you had access to one of these upsell sites.
Basically all you need to know is - when you enter the members area, go to the top and click on the "ALL WEBSITES" tab - this will take you to the sites that you actually have access to with your current membership. This is the area that should be the "HOME" page, not the area they have now.
Also, when you watch streaming videos, there will be thumbnails for other videos along the right side that might be for sites you don't currently have access to. Or when you click on a certain girl's profile, it will show all of her videos - but there may be videos mixed in there that are on sites you don't have access to. So you have to be aware of the sites that are part of your "BangBros Pack" and make sure to only click on those videos. I haven't clicked on the wrong video yet, so I can't confirm if you are automatically billed for sites just by clicking on the video.
Other than these annoyances, it's a good site with a ton of content. I'll have a full review in a few weeks.

-Hard to beat the content for assmen
-That content is massive, going back a decade
-Fast dl speeds
-Format Options, mp4[moble, 720x404, 852x480,1280x720], wmv [852x480]
-Photos avail in zip, but...
-Upon joining, I can see how some cases of trickery can occur. Especially if under the sites that aren't part of the core BBnet are added and billed immediately by clicking add site or the special offer images from home page.
-HD is only 1280x720. Fine for me since 1080 vids are too big for me, but sure some prefer best they can get.
-Photos avail in zip, but in some cases are as big or bigger than the highest rez video its from, some with over a 1000 pics @ near 1MB or over per.
-The really old videos are rough to look at these days. Old blocky, low bitrate compression. Some been re-encoded in their remaster section.
This is a popular site for good reason. If you like juicy butts, and sometimes breasts too, getting plowed by enhanced male talent, this is probably top of the list.
Only think really holding it back imo are the obvious billing issues and questionable upsells, but those are pretty major. Think they're mostly avoidable, but guess I'll find out. Not good though for someone willing to pay for their porn feeling like they have to walk on eggshells virtually across a site to avoid hidden charges or scared of later billing issues. I'd recommend, but be leery about where you click,
On the members login of bangbros there are a couple of vids that play underneath the username and password part. they are different some times, but I am looking for the video of the blonde girl with the pigtails with her legs up getting fucked. Any help would be great.
Some of the male talent on this site completely ruin the scenes.
It's the most frustrating thing ever to see a super hot model, then be presented with the most insanely boring scene you've ever seen because of the terrible male talent, and Bangbros (Monsters of Cock) is getting really guilty of this lately. Charlie Mac - I'm looking straight at you as the main culprit. Seriously, watch some of the more recent scenes he is in with models like Alana Rains and Marry Lynn, scenes that could be 10's on a scale of hotness brought down to a 1 or 2 by the terrible male talent. And I would say whoever is in charge of editing has some blame too.
You don't even get a single look at the girl's pussies in these vids, because it starts with an edited intro into him already fucking the girl, then never pulls his dick out one time during the entire scene for a gape shot or anything, then the final pullout is cut out end of scene. Mindless pumping for 20-25 minutes as interesting as watching paint dry. You need to watch some vids of Shane Diesel, Ramon, or hell even Jack Napier to see how to at least make a scene somewhat interesting. God what a waste of potential some of these scenes lately.....
I'm surprised TBP hasn't blocked this site as they've done with other sites that engage in shady and deceptive business practices. All the other users' warning comments written before mine should be a pretty major indication that something is not right here. I had the same frustrating and expensive experience as other users: I thought I was signing up for one site, but simply by clicking on a video from a site I thought was included, suddenly found myself with an entirely separate subscription to a new set of sites. I'm also 100% sure I unchecked the pre-checked cross sale box upon signing up for the original site, but was still charged for the trial membership to yet another site. All of this meant I now had to cancel THREE memberships when I only signed up for one, and I'm still unsure if one of these sites was even canceled at all, since the specific site name did not show up on the list of cancellation options. They've got some interesting content here, and a lot of it, but I strongly warn people to steer clear until this site engages in more ethical billing practices.
Great site. Frequent updates, high quality photos and videos.
I have been a member of this site before and had nothing but compliments.
Signed recently and like others are mentioning here recently, you even look the wrong way and you have joined a new site whether you wanted to or not, even though you did not realize they were going to bill you.
Dont even look at this site or any of the other sites in the group or your credit card is in danger.
I'm tenacious - But unfortunately this site is still dormant :-<
No updates since June 9, 2009, same as last year. PU price is $18, same as last year. 640 x 480, same as last year. Promoted as an active site by Bang Bros, same as last year.
If your interested, however, you can drain free samples of every video in the site from their preview site. Short clips (20 sec to 60 sec).
You ask why am I checking again? Because I like the content (all babes with natural big tits captured on video by a big tit lover who knows exactly what us big tit fans like me) and I'm hoping that someone at Bang Bros figures it out that there's money to be made both by remastering the existing inventory and by adding new stuff with all the new talent out there.

updates every day
decent variety of attractive women
impressive archive of content
Site is incredibly dishonest.I signed up for the bangbros network for 29.95.When I signed up I went through the standard procedure,like on every website, where you get to review then submit your purchase. I used the website for about a week, and never once during that time did I attempt to purchase a subscription to any other website,nor was there ever the standard procedure for doing so presented to me. Checking my bank account after about a week after my bangbros purchase, I saw I had 2 more charges from bangbros, for 29.95 and 14.95. I called bangbros support to find out what the additional charges were for and they told me they were for dancing bear and college rules. I explained to them I did not want or purchase either of those, to which the girl replied "maybe you didn't uncheck those before you joined" I told that i made sure nothing else was checked, and if in fact I had not unchecked anything why would my initial purchase only be 29.95, THEN I had 2 more charges afterwards
I had to threaten to contact the state attorney generals office about their fraudulent charges, then she offered to credit my account for the 2 sites I did not order. From what I can gather if you click on a girls profile on the bangbros website, and one of her video credits is for a website not in the bangbros network, and you click on that video, they automatically bill you for it without telling you or giving you an option. I have never encountered a problem like this on any other website, I am astounded by their dishonesty and thievery.
Bottom line is that it doesn't matter how good the content is on a website, if that same website steals your money, the content means nothing.
Trust means everything when you are making online purchases, bangbros is completely untrustworthy, shame on them
I will update my review when or if i actually get the refund they promised me.

+Their content is all exclsuif and they add 2-3 new scenes per day.
+They have over 6400 videos to choise from going as far bask as 2002 and they can all be downloaded as a single file.
+Videos since 2009 are offered in HD 1280x720.
+They have an excellent selection of mostly American performers with a good mix of body type and age group.
+They offer a photoset for each of their scenes which can be downloaded as a single zip file and resolution for the ones from 2011 to now is 1224x816.
+All the scenes are tagged with multiple keywords so that you can search for a particular word.
+They keep remastering some of their older videos.
-The site is still clutered with advertising for their other sites and offers for cam shows.
-You have to go through two pages of advertising to get to the main Bangbros page and one of these is sort of made to trick members into believing they have access to certain sites.
-About 1/4 of the first page is dedicated to useless crap and cam shows and worse it's at the top of the page so you have to scroll down to actually see the content you want.
-All the videos have multiple keywords but some of the words aren't correct for the content.
-They haven't fixed their search option so although you can search for keywords. The order in which the videos is presented is never chronological and no way to do that.
*It really sucks when a good site like Bangbros can't or won't clean up their site to make finding stuff easier. Here you have one of the really good porn sites who updates more often than most of the others and does a very decent job at shooting a wide variety of porn but where the site design is so annoying as to make each visit a pain rather than a pleasure. I'm just glad that I'm a returning member who already has most of the content he wants and is only looking for the last few months worth. The thought of having to find stuff through 11 years owrth would be a daunting task.
*They still manage to hire some top performers and they get them to do hardcore porn. They also seem to have a higher number of unknown girls as opposed to their counterpart in the US. That's both a good thing and a bad one because it's quite common for those girls to shoot porn one or two scenes for Bangbros and then disapear to never be seen again.
**The bottom line is that it's only 15$ and you will more than get your moneys worth. The only people that should avoid this site are those looking for softcore to midcore content because there is almost none.**
*I took a couple of points off from my last review because the clutter is starting to annoy and they really need to fix the search results.*
Is anyone else having problems logging in to the Bang Bros Network?
I subscribed to the Network a few days ago and I have had nothing but problems with this site. I cannot login or even access their Customer Support. Every attempt to login or access Support ends with an error message stating "This Website is Unavailable".
Before anyone asks, yes I am using the correct user ID and password and no my cap locks is not on.
I've read all the comments, in fact most of them kept me from joining the one site i have always wanted to skim through but never had the gut to proceed due to all the bad reviews. Well i just couldn't take it anymore, i had to sign up. As far as people being billed more than they should, there are land mines, like many sites. If you click on a site it will tell you if you are subscribed to it such as many of the Latina content, its an extra package to subscribe. If you click it, it will ask you if you would like to sign up and im guessing if you click again... Your signed. So be cautious and you should have no problems.
Today i canceled my membership since i wont be able to use it much the next couple of months. During my canceling the site offered me a low price on additional subscriptions.
Overall the site was excellent, if you enjoy big butts and large breast this is certainly the site i recommend. There are quite a few videos that have condoms but usually seems to be used on new girls or returning girls not sure but i found more videos without than with.
Im glad i joined, i downloaded alot of awesome content, lots of HD videos and pictures.
Seems most networks have hidden check boxes and what not... The key is to pay attention!!! I know we shouldn't have to but it is what it is.
If i experience any problems with my canceling i will inform.
This seems strange. assparade.com want $1 for age verification before you can see any of their previews. (not that I'm cheap, but I'm not spending a $1 just to see if I might like your content. And while Bangbros is a big company that I'm sure is reputable - I don't know how I feel about this practice.)
About the strange part: Bangbros.com doesn't require $1 on their main site for previews. Even when you access asspardae content form the main bangbros page you aren't asked for a $1 before seeing previews.
My question for the group: What do you think of the practice of charging $1 for previews?

+ Daily Updates
+ 6,000 Videos
+ 43 Sites Included
+ Exclusive Content
+ Many Viewing/Download Options
- Repetitive Content
- Some Inactive Sites
- Limited Trial
BangBros is one of the most popular porn networks in the industry. Launched in 2001, it managed to stay on top with quality reality porn, gorgeous models and an expanding network of new sites. It features a huge library of exclusive updates with daily updates and new models every week.
With a network of 43 sites, you get 2 to 3 new scenes everyday. At this rate, the library is not only huge but keeps growing at a fast rate. There is a total of approximately 6,000 exclusive scenes featuring 2,000 models.
All the content is exclusive and is offered in both video and picture formats. You can stream or download each scene entirely or in sequential parts and there are multiple video quality formats you can choose from depending on your internet speed. The new HD scenes looks very good (1280x720) as well as the high quality large pictures included with each new HD update. Each update contains a photo set (125 to 1,000 photos) and a screencap set (300 to 1,500 screencaps).
There are many reality-based niches at your disposal. From straight amateur sex to lesbian orgies, POV blowjobs, latinas, ebonies big asses and castings, BangBros makes sure to satisfy your porn needs. With thousands of models and new ones featured every week, you have access to the most popular and best looking girls on the web. Most of them are young but mature fans also get their share.
The first con one might observes is the lack of diversity. Although there are 43 different sites, each one focusing on a specific niche or type of porn, the content gets somehow repetitive. There are very few fetish and hard sex scenes (bondages, DPs, gangbangs, orgies) and it is an area where the network could highly improve not only to offer more niches but also to attract a new category of viewers.
Despite a large network of sites, some of them seem inactive as they no longer update. Only the new sites and the most popular ones benefit from regular updates while the old ones (or less popular) collect dust.
There is no doubt that BangBros remains among the top porn websites even after all these years. With a growing network of new sites and daily fresh updates, everyone is well pleased and satisfied after joining in especially the reality porn lovers.
The monthly price is very cheap for what you get (when joining from www.TheBestPorn.com) but beware of the trial membership which is limited to a few scenes and automatically renew at $39.95 a month after 2 days (unless canceled).
