Phony Come On

Get this...when you hit the join button, you get taken to a page that says "Join For Free". Oh Boy, I better sign up right now!!! So you send in your email address, risking spam, and you get your magic password! Then everything you click on leads you to the real join page! Shame on you Penthouse for this antique P.T. Barnum sales technique---straight out of the 1970's porn world. It turned me off so much, I decided not to join.

jr2375 (0) I will admit it's a little cheesy, but let's be realistic. The company is in the business for money. They don't give their magazine away for free at the news stand, so why would they give their content away for free on the web? No revenue means no money for site upkeep and no money for new content, therefore no site. I don't think the print media is in the shape these days to be subsidizing web content, especially when it comes to adult content, which is far superior on the web, in any case.

I would have preferred a better free tour setup, but I've seen a lot worse from a lot of sites promising much more. Having some sample pictures demonstrating all the available sizes, for instance, would be rather helpful.

You misunderstood my comment.

I just wanted to join the site---they wanted my inbox.

No, no, I understood you completely. You were very clear. Like I said, it's cheesy, but really no surprise.

I don't like sites getting my email address for no apparent reason. If I'm actually joining the site, as in paying for it, of course, they're going to need my email.

I may be being a little naive, but I'd rather have Penthouse having my email address rather than many of the other sites out there. The company has been around long enough to know the score. If they email me, I suspect it won't be the same putrid crap that spams everyone.

I did give them my email address, since I have a throwaway one just for this purpose, and I do intend to try the site. They simply sent me my password, and I have received nothing else from them.
