Status: Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
Pros: - 10,000+ photo sets with about 1200 hardcore and all have zip function. Newest material is 1600x1070, most is 1280x850 and a few are 800x600.
- 2250 vids with about 1000 hardcore with good download speeds in QT and WMV, most come in 640x480 size
- No DRM
- Small watermarks
- Good trial / discount price through TBP (currently you can join at a 2 day trial for $2.26 through Blue Fantasies and other Twisty's sites)
- Access to about 6 sites with membership
- Very good search function
- Several updates every day
Cons: - Mostly non exclusive material
- Updates dont' keep up with other "mega" sites (see "bottom line" for discussion)
- Most of the other sites available are Twisty's clones with the exception of Blue Fantasies, Naughtystaff and Annette Dawn
- Pics only come in one size
Bottom Line: I've been a member at Twisty's in the past and I rejoined on a two day trial membership through Bluefantasies.

There is a ton of content here so if you're rather newish to the porn surfing world you're going to find a lot to like. The content is mostly centered around pornstars in professional style shoots with some amateurish stuff tossed in. However, if you've been around a while you'll recognize most of the sets. There's a lot of material from Vivthomas and pretty much the same material as the Sexy-babes / Dreambabes sites and a few other mega sites. It's been about a year since I was a member at a mega site and quite honestly I only found about 40 "new to me" hardcore sets -- this includes their bonus sites. A lot of their new updates is stuff that other sites seem to have had for a while now.

I will give them Kudos for having a very good search function and model directory. Also I liked the fact that they have upgraded a lot of their older photo sets from 800x600 (which they used to be) to roughly 1020 by 720 or larger now.

The bonus sights, as mentioned, are almost all clones.

Standing on it's own, I'm giving Twisty's a score of 81. If I included bonus sites I'd bump the score up a couple of points more. While the content is good it is nonexclusive and other mega sites do it better with more up to date content. If you're newish to the porn surfing scene then it is well worth checking out; just don't plan to go back anytime soon

TheRizzo (23) Nice review, but I do think that a lot of the content from the past couple years is mainly exclusive content. I know the first few years of the site was based on licensed stuff though. Though a lot of the same girls are on other sites, I do believe the actual sets for a lot of the girls are exclusive to them.

Nice to know they have bonus sites now too, but that does kinda suck if they are pretty much clones.

badandy400 (103) I have been wanting to know if the zip files are still named weird. I was a member there for a long time but ended over a year ago and have been wanting to rejoin. I never liked how stuff was named there because it was hard to tell exactly what it was after downloading.

I just checked one photo set and one photo in it...here's the label...janaredlng_003.jpg.

It's a Jana Cova photo set posted today that they call "Dip and Lick" and the red, I suppose, refers to her bright red panties. There are clues, obviously, and I suppose their naming is better than others that use just numbers, or the same names for everything.

Monahan (38) Twistys has a third bonus site, Anette Dawn.com, which is not a clone.

Blue Fantasies is a very well populated site with tons of good stuff. Naughty Staff is a brand new site with excellent stuff, but not much of it yet.

Thus there are 3 clones and 3 separate content sites in addition to the mother lode called Twistys.

How about the zip files them selves. I remember them having some pretty strange names in the past. When I unzip the zp files I usually have the file name be used for the folder name, so the name is fairly important, otherwise I have to rename everything all the time....very time consuming!

Monahan (38) REPLY TO #5 - badandy400 :

The zip file associated with the sample I mentioned above is janaredlng.zip. I agree with you completely that an effort to use more descriptive zip file names would be a major improvement. These days, with substantially improved file naming protocols, there's no technical reason why severely truncated file names must be used by Twistys.

I'd have to say that Monahan's description of the zips is pretty much accurate. It's a pain because they aren't very well described but I tend to rename them or edit my zips so, for me, it's not that big of deal.

Wittyguy (95) REPLY TO #1 - TheRizzo :

I think when it comes to the hardcore material, which is what I'm primarily interested in, the sets seem to be mostly duplicates from what can be seen on other sites. I do believe that there is some exclusivity but not enough. Also, I think some of the stuff that appears to be exclusive on their site tends to show up later on some of the other mega sites.

Like I mentioned Blue Fantasies is not a clone but it is total softcore glamour. Naughtystaff is a new addition and mostly exclusive but with only 12 sets so far its not big enough to justify joining at this point.

For me, Sexy-babes and it's network is superior but that's just one humble chimps opinion.

I was afraid that was the situation. I never liked that in the bast and it will make it much harder to know what has been downloaded previously and what is new. Oh well. Thank you both for the heads up.

I rename stuff on many sites, but at times it is not needed. Anymore I rename them as they are downloaded while the information is fresh, if I wait i will never remember what I wanted to name it! I have been using "D-System's Keyboard Remapper" for a while now and it greatly helps with this. It saves me a lot of typing, basically by pressing two keys I can copy the model's name and add to or overwrite the file the name of the site and the model name. This is godsend to being a very heavy downloader.I used it on every zip file from Nubiles and and every zip and video from Reality Kings.
