Twistys, (but soon to be not as we currently know it?)
Well it would appear that Mindgeek has decided to make some (dodgy) moves with Twistys.
This all started with the leaking of the TOTY winners followed by the revelation that the runner up was not going on the TOTY trip (replaced by one of the other contestants) as in previous years (and the further developments that this had been mandated by parent company management).
This all caused an uproar on the forums which then resulted in the link to the forums being taken away from the members site. Since this has happened, the manager of the site who took over in the running from Shap after it sold has left (fired?).
This is all addition to the various site malarky that has occured recently:
- the drop in updates (yet they still advertise 3 galleries and 2 videos a day)
- the removal of advance search
- the replacement of their entire photo retouching team
There are rumours that they will no longer be shooting solo-only models. Shap has even popped up on the forums wondering what the hell is going on...
The website has very scrupulous billing tactics. Once you upgrade to realitykings.com, they automatically trick you and add you to realitykingsreel.com ! they then charge you for "2 sites". $19.95 + $39.95 ! After I contest the billing crooks, they apologize and said once the charges are posted, there is nothing they can do to refund the money. They are just the "billing company" and not the website owner. Be very careful with these crooks and their misleading billing tactics. I have plan to report them to the BBB. Watch for unauthorized bills from MBI-PROBILLER.COM/RK 877-446-0668. Once you give your credit card number, you will kiss your money goodbye. Their policy is "NO REFUND" even if it was their mistake. The guy answering the phone is the FLOOR MANAGER and pretends he is an expert in billing and not authorized for giving out
Holy Mackerel - why did I join this site - again? Oh, because those Playboy-dudes still have some of the best looking models - and normally I do not mind that softer material.
But the way they - now - do the videos get me close to a nervous breakdown.....fast, fast clips - like in a trailer....the moment you get a fine view of the model, they cut - fast, fast fast...and it goes on and on and on.
Guys: Slow down....."give the singer some" (quote Jim Morrison) - Lol.
Unlike other sites that offers easy cancellations through a billing processor or onsite with just 2 pieces of information, playboy.tv requires people to contact the billing processor through a toll free number, a live chat that doesn't work or email(which who knows when they will respond within the 2 day trial period).
On the plus side, I wasn't put on hold while calling the toll free number. Having to call a number to cancel is just bad practice.

- good quality video
- that's it
-I rate the girls from 2 to 6 on with 10 being gorgeous
- girls are all barrio
- scenes are monotonous
- daily download limit stinks
To each his own, but I feel like I threw away my money. If anyone wants the rest of my month (I'm only on day 2), it's all yours for a pittance. Actually, the only good part is it only cost $17.95 going thru TBP.
This is part of Reality Kings though I just had access to Mike in Brazil. The girls are all ghetto or barrio, if you will, fake big tits with boring scenes. Worst of all, well, maybe a blessing in disguise, is the download limit. Iím basically a noobie with download sites, but this is the first site that Iíve come across with a limit. I got about 25 films a day choosing the smaller of the 2 mp4 downloads, about 350mb each.

This review isnít technically a review of Babes network but is of the identical clone, Babes.com. I really canít imagine why a company would have two identical sites, but they do.
This site is another in the Ďartcoreí niche with hardcore porn done with a softer edge. If youíre looking for slapping, throat fucking and lots of anal pounding, then youíll want to look elsewhere. There is none of that here.
What you will find here are lots of scenes with beautiful women in solo, lesbian and b/g scenes. The site has offers the ability to sort by scene type, which is an excellent feature for getting to what you prefer. My preference is for b/g, so selecting for Ďcouplesí removes the solo and lesbian from what I can see. The hardcore b/g scenes all follow a familiar format with kissing, foreplay (for both partners), vaginal sex and the money shot. As is the norm with these kinds of sites, the scene lengths are approximately 20 minutes each, in keeping with the natural feel that the site is trying to create. The production values are high with good lighting and editing in the scenes. The lesbian and solo scenes offer what youíd expect with scenes in those niches.
The models are a mix of American and Europeans. Some are well-known porn stars while others are lesser known. They are all relatively young (18-25) and most are petite. One advantage to sites like this that have more sensual scenes and also offer solo and lesbian is that they seem to attract newer models who may only do solo or g/g for now. Itís a great opportunity to see some new models (like Emily Grey. Please, please, please, Ms. Grey, make the leap to hardcore!)
The site is fairly large with 189 couples videos, 95 lesbian videos and 179 solo girl videos available. The videos are all available as streaming or downloads. Streaming is available as RTMP or HTTP (I have no idea what that meansÖ) in 720, 480 or 320 resolutions. Downloads are available in 1080, 720, 480 and mobile resolutions. MP4 is the only file type offered. I found the 720p videos to be a good compromise between video quality and file size. The 720p videos come in at 1280x720, 4000kb/s and 29fps. Subjectively, they look great with no pixilation that some sites still have at higher resolutions.
The site supports download managers and I had no problems with the links timing out. The download speeds were what I get with other sites so they donít try to limit speeds, even at peak times. Updates are made daily with one scene per day being added.
The site offers lots of photos too. Currently there are 122 Ďcouplesí photosets, 95 lesbian and 179 solo sets. The photos are available as either zips or singles. The few photosets I downloaded all had a little over 100 photos. Photo resolutions seem a bit low at 1663x2494.
There are no obvious negatives to the site. There are ads and upsells, but those happen at other sites too and they arenít obtrusive or distracting. I did find it a bit annoying that when sorting scenes you had the option to see what scenes are available on other company sites like Brazzers, Mofos and Twistyís. I think the trade-off is that if you really like a model it gives you access to trailers and you may want to join another site if you like what you see.
The bottom line is that this is an excellent site with some great sensual porn available. The models are beautiful and the sex is hot. At the discounted price available through TBP/PU this site is a great value if youíre looking for porn with a softer edge.

1)What few models they have on this site are spectacular. So much so Iím inclined to think budgeting for makeup exceeds what they pay models.
2)Proudly touts categories including Athletic, bald pussy, combat ready spiked heels, black stocking and more. does that make you lick your chops, or what?
3)Video quality, is exceptional. HD so graphic one is tempted to reach inside to grab a tit.
4)Media Choices given are streaming RTNP/ progressive HTTP/ Video quality HD 720 SD medium 480P/ SD Low 320P
(if you pressure me to explain all that, I could have a senior moment concerning a blather-matter.
5) Epoch billing is primary.
6)Each model's stats are posted, including a generous amount of helpful info.
7)Comments are given space and encouraged for each model.(Pulling no punches, I think mine went down the toilet)
8)Ample solo, mucho-lesbo, plenty hardcore, as well as an added mix aimed for pleasing all.
8)Video timing varies, 10 to 15 minutes, perhaps some more or less.
1)They boast of having hundreds of models. Where?
Could this be the beginning subliminal porn?
2)clumsy password transport started from the get-go. Lost a day or more in limbo.
3)I found navigation reminiscent to stumbling through an Amusement Park fun-house .... exacerbated by countless promo trappings sticking you for limitless partners, Networks, buddy-boy boot-likers as well as you-scratch-my-back and I'll ... well, you get my drift. If the bate is too tempting, its because "Babes" made it so.
4)Scratch the technical mombo-jumbo about pixels, kbs, electronic numbering and the like, I had enough trouble just puttin' this review together.
4 not surprisingly, each fuck scene routinely goes through the same ritual of she gives him a BJ, followed by a tedious duration of the male vaginally poking, gouging, munching, licking, and generally any other event he can muster up in his presumed goal of upping the volume of her hackneyed screams of uncontrolled ecstasies.
Iíd predict most guys curious enough to read this review might find this site a bonanza for a promo 30 day price of just $10. And he'd be right.
Me, on the other hand, might find better use for my money gettingí a quickie from a Aria Giovanni life-sized doll, pumped at a pressurized perfect psi with velvet lined motorized enter "tush" , satin soft tits, hand-made textured body skin, and all orifices working at peak performance.
But seriously, my lust run rampant every time I see an erotically charged video or a series of photos depicting aria lying on her back ..... wanker motion is in over-ride, titillation gauges at warp mode, all the while I'm praying she'll keep her dammed hands off her self-enamored, overweening obsession with her great pair of tits.
Well my friends, some of the gals you'll see working on this site is about as close to the excitement generated, and physically empowered endowments of the woman I just described as I can muster.
A number of These models are at a rolling boil; I might even add they're shockingly glamorous.
Figuratively, I simply visually dined on the gourmet of seeing them do their stuff.
I'd like to enthusiastically give the direction, and camera crew equal praise, but, unfortunately, they're dug in to the same old rut that befalls too many of these guys who just won't listen to we their customers.
The prolonged unsavory close-ups; shabby uncorrected mistakes; stumbling around thus giving us unsatisfactory imagery; too few full body shots; glued on single point focusing to the point of sheer boredom. The operative word is plainly "lousy.
Recommend it? with only two weeks into the site, I can't give a fair answer. Amend
if you are thinking to join this site because of anal content ( like me) beware that anal content is big time cut now. other than bwb, anal is extremely rare. still older anal scenes are out there but new ones are just not coming.

+ A boat load of scenes and models (about 4500 scenes)
+ About 8-10 updates per week across a 27 site network
+ Excellent navigation, can search by model, site or across the network
+ All scenes have pics up to 2500x1600 with zips and multiple video options with true 1080 HD on scenes added since late 2009
+ Model directory (with actual info!)
+ Good price at $20 a month (I got in on a special $10 price)
+ Pretty much all hardcore across a variety of genres from teen to milf
+ Excellent production values and usually an attempt to build some story line into the scenes
+ Lots of ability for users to interact on the site (ratings, forum, comments, etc)
+ Good download speeds for me - consistently in the 500 or more MB/sec range across multiple channels
- As usual the older content (before mid 2009) lacks in quality (no HD video and only 900x600 pics)
- Tags are inconsistent so not a reliable way to do a comprehensive search
- Only about 14 sites update.
- Their motto might as well be "Home of big tits and bit tatts". The majority of models would make silicon valley envious but there is something for about everyone here except softcore.
- Cross sale on signup and advertising on the site and when you log in
- A slew of "bonus sites" that are just tube quality streaming videos
- Too many pics. Many scenes have over 1000 images which just means endless pics of the same thing.
- Although not really a negative, most all the models here are certified porn stars so if you're looking for fresh meat, you won't find it here.
- Nothing terribly original about the scenes so it can seem a bit stale after a while even across the wide genres they cover
It's been almost 5 years since I was last here and I mostly stayed away because of the low quality pics and "bit tit, big ass, bit tattoos" theme that most of the sites focus on. However, I decided to jump in on a $10 a month special through TBP and have to say I was pretty impressed. There's a reason why this in one of the biggest and most popular porn sites out there. Here's the quick low down:
PICS: Older pics (before mid 2009) are only 900 to 1000 by 660. Since then, the size is great and so is the quality. You don't get download options though. My only beef is that there are too many pics with some scenes having over 2500 pics. A few sites have done better keeping them around 200-300 but most updates still have around 800. I'm glad they don't give you too few pics but I really don't need 15 shots of the same thing. With the large pic sizes, some zip files end up being 600 - 800 mb in size which is just unnecessary.
VIDS: As noted, before 2009 the vid quality is average at best. Since then the HD stuff looks really good. You get up to 7 download options (full HD to mobile sized), in browser streaming which works great (very little lag time), screen caps and 1 or 5 minute screen caps which appear just below the video to let you jump to the good stuff. Download speeds were fast and consistent. Vids range from 20 to 50 minutes. I found that I downloaded a lot of "SD mp4" files (lower rez but formatted with HD dimensions) which look pretty good on my 23" monitor and saved on the 2-5 GB full HD size.
NAVIGATION: The more I review and look at porn sites the more I see sites that just grow too big for their original navigation systems and become, at best, a chore to slog through. Since my last join here years ago they have completely revamped their navigation and it freakin' actually works well. Only a few clicks will get you where you want. You can browse through a 1000 pics and with two back button clicks you're out to update page for any site. You can search in various ways except really the tags because they're inconsistent but then I've never seen a really good tag system on a large site.
You can create favorite lists, the sites track the scenes you've looked at that you can easily access and there's lots of opportunity to give feedback and interact if you're into that. The model directory has actual info and lets you follow porn stars.
OVERALL: I'm not really into the big tit slutty porn star thing but I found that I downloaded about 500 photo sets and about 80 vids so I can't say I was disappointed. You got teens, milfs, uniforms, bit butts, big tits, squirting, etc. to choose from so unless you're into softcore or lez you should be able find a few goodies.
Production values since 2009 are great and you get a ton of models.
My negative impressions are mostly minor. A few broking links, the site bogged down my Firefox browser after 2 hours (probably need more ram), and even with all the sites and models the porn does get a little repetitive but then again this is a pretty mainstream porn network.
While I'm not ready to sell out and go sign myself up for life to the silicon boob of the day club I was pretty impressed with the site. If I were to score it just on content and production value it'd only be in the mid 80's but the well thought out navigation and ease of use are some of the best I've seen which bumps up the score to 92. At last, a pleasant surprise.

+avg 100-200 images per set
+great quality images and videos
+HD videos (1080/720)
-not a lot of models
-usually one video or image gallery per model
-one size zip
-image viewer sometimes frustrating
This is a great site with the majority of it hardcore and I would recommend for hardcore fans. The photography is similar to Digital Desire and Twistys which those sites are the reason why I joined this site.
Navigation is pretty easy to understand and you know what you can search by. You can sort by latest, oldest, favorites, etc. in videos, photos and models. When I encountered the Customer Service to cancel my subscription, I didn't have any problems and it was fast service.
As for the content, the majority on the site is BG and GG with a good amount of solo. When I was on the site I had counted about 420+ videos and about 430+ photo sets. When I joined the site I wanted the solo, but I was amazed on how great both BG and GG sets were. I really liked the GG interactions of the photo sets. Most of the models had either one video or one gallery or one of both which was a disappointment. You can only download one size zip which is large.
Models image pages loads pretty slow which takes about 10-30 seconds to load and you have to download photo sets to get the highest quality, for you can't get the highest resolution by looking at the gallery on the website. The highest image sizes I came upon was 2493px on the long side and is seems like it's on all images.
Video choices you can download are, 1080p, 720p, 480p and iPod/PSP. The quality of the videos are really good with excellent shots.
Bottom line is this is a great site for hardcore and softcore fans. This is a site I would recommend.

- Daily Updates and lots of content (1600+ videos at time of review)
- Most videos shot in P.O.V style
- Videos are downloadable in various quality types
- Downloadable zipped picture sets for each scene
- Members get good discounts when they sign up on other networks
- Good range of niches over site network
- If you like a model you can request them to do a new scene (unsure how effective this is)
- The bonus channel is a little clumsy and seems a bit "tacked on"
- To navigate to a scene filter were you search for categories it is a bit of a round-a-bout way to get there, but when you get there it is comprehensive
- A few of the links in the top bar (Cams, Reel, and Liveshows) are not part of the joining fee and require additional membership/PPV
Overall i really liked the layout and presentation of the site, and found it pretty easy to look around and explore.
I am really a fan of the POV "amatuer" style of this site and the way the scenes are shot, it does an OK job of not making the scene seem so staged, also the overall look of the girls is really good, and most of them i do not recognise and look pretty fresh and don't have big fake breasts which a good thing
I think this is a really good website and is well price and definately worth a look
Lately they have not been placing the picture zip files until a day or to later, and if you keep track of the up dates or up coming videos, you might notice sometimes the updates are short one update posting. Small draw back, but I did notice a lot of comments on brazzers about there later posting of the zip files. Still a pretty good site for the money. My personal thought.

+Lots of sites
+Good video quality
+Plenty of female variety
+Lots of different genres
-File sizes are huge
-Lots of ads
-Some sites update almost randomly
-OK search function
-(partial) Download limits *not a problem for me*
+One thing I will say about RK is that they leave few stones unturned when it comes to porn. They have the standard sites that you would expect from a network like this, but they throw in a few surprises like a squirting site, "joke" site (It's Real) and even a tranny site if you want something outside of the typical offerings.
+All of the videos are filmed very well and the quality of the downloads is very high. Some of the POV scenes are a little rough and/or poorly lit, but I imagine that is part of the "look." The videos also do a nice job of putting forth enough of a "story" to make it entertaining, but not losing sight of the fact that it is porn.
+There are lots of attractive women on this site that cross quite a range. I was able to find most of my Euro favorites from previous memberships to those sites as well as many American women as well. There is a fair amount of silicone (which is not necessarily my cup of tea) on the MILF models, but it is not very widespread through all of the models.
-The file sizes are large. I know space is cheap, but the shortest videos are 25ish minutes and those take up 2GB. After being a member of other sites with equivalent video quality at half the size, I believe this is something that can be improved.
-While I normally anticipate ads when joining a site, one of the things that annoyed me about RK was that they would put in scenes for other sites mixed in with some of their scenes. More than once, I clicked on an update to be redirected to a "join" page for a partner site.
-Some of the sites are on a monthly or a "whenever" update schedule, which is disappointing and frustrating. They might have 20 active sites, but only 7-10 update in a way that you know you will have a weekly update.
-Search function is nothing special. For a general search (click on a type), you can pick one element and go from there. Their "Search" function (type in something) is nice if you know the name, as it will auto-fill, but you have to have a good idea of the name.
-The big gorilla: download limits. The TOS has a data limit of (I believe) 5GB OR 15 "Big" movies. A "big" movie from what I saw is an HD movie of 720 or 1080 quality, as the filename is "blahblah_big.avi," so you can download 15 of those in a day. I am not a site ripper, but instead download movies that I like, so I never had an issue with the download limits and never received a message that I went over my limit despite downloading over 400GB over the course of a month.
While it appears that the cons outweigh the pros, I found most of the cons to be fairly minor in comparison to the high-quality porn that this site provided. This site is top 2 when it comes to downloaded videos over the course of a month and I have not "tired" of them as I have with some of the other sites. I definitely recommend this site, especially with some of the deals that can be had.
has anyone ever really figured out what the download limit is here?
When I reviewed this network a long time ago I couldn't figure out what the download limit actually was. Some days I was allowed to download 12GB, other half that. But other members here said they had no limit imposed.
The clause in the Terms of Reference that is quoted or paraphrased at TBP is that there is a daily limit of 10 gigabytes of data each day, and additionally up to 15 big movies. I emailed the site back in 2011 to ask what that meant and go no answer.
But now the mystery has deepened a bit. I just went back to the site to confirm the wording in the TOS and there is no mention of the limit. I searched for every term I could think that would be used in that clause and got nothing.
So are there any current subscribers who can provide some insight into this issue? In her recent review at TBP, Vanessa doesn't mention it but it is still mentioned in the site stats.

Many horrible shot videos old stuff
Chat never had a porn star use it.
Crosschecked items (BEWARE)
I was a member back in 2010 I had hoped the site would have improved it was ok then just unreliable.
Toads over view, the site is pretty, plastered with gorgeous women, the front page of updates is the sites masterpiece. But the site behind uses and old server engine and looks like it did in 2008. The site was slow very often simple downloads of video took 30-40 minutes and I have a 50mb connection. Could not get download manager to work, but Firefox queued them ok. Search never worked and bonus sites are unattended with dead links, blank pages. No downloads just a mess in my opinion.
Toads : Licks : The newer items are in HD the site misleads those that join to think the site has allot of HD when less then 1% are HD many photosets are grainy even newer ones. Thatís not to say there are not amazing videos and pictures, but they advertise 1.6+ Million Photos 46,000+ Videos and many are subpar old formats and grainy. I would say 20,000 pictures are good and 2000 videos are good. Thatís a great deal still but when you think you are getting a million picture of good or better you are not.
Good Stuff , the site has a nice simple navigation and easy to understand downloads and usage, The site has allot of their own material and most only seen at Twistys. I joined for only $9.99 on a bonus deal so was well worth the join. Cbill cancellation was easy no problems so far.
Cybertoads Bottom Line
The site is good but not great, support never answered me in 30 days and 6 emails, even using the forum resulted in no answers. The chat never had stars use it and there is no future advertisement of when it may be back. Lots of dead links on videos and pictures. Which is a big pain in the ass to think you are getting a great collection and its dead and support does not respond. Quality varies from stunning to WTF, inconsistencies among photographers makes the site unreliable. But Tammy is one of the best look for her shoots they are top notch. The women their tend to shoot much better.
I probably wonít be back for another few years. The site had material I downloaded back then, but many were dead links to. Twistys took allot of their material and moved it to the other sites to help fill. The site is worth $9.99 not the 29.99 they advertise and watch for the subtle crosschecks.
