badandy400 (103) I joined Twists a while back, several years actually. I am sure the site has improved some since then. I know they have merged with some other sites which is good and other PUs say they are doing well. I will be rejoining them soon though.

I like this poll because a first porn site is a little like a first car. No matter if the site is great or not so great it is the first and is liked and remembered anyway. The first kinda sets the bar for other sites. Also a first site can directly impact what a user looks for in other sites and whether or not they will join other sites. We have heard a few people come here with issues regarding their first site and are scared to pay to join another.

lk2fireone (194) I'm getting up there in age, and I don't remember what my first paysite was, to tell the truth. Before I joined my first paysite, I used to look at free photos of Playboy playmates on the Internet. I guess old Hef is the one who led me down that garden path.

Some of the older playmates from the 1970s and 1980s were special. Far better than what they are choosing for the 2000+ playmates. The older ones seemed more real, less plastic. I'm sure there were a number of boob jobs and whatnot back then, but it was less obvious.

Drooler (220) ultimateasian. The first of Dec. 2001. Cost me $9.95. Subscription term? 1 year. It was a collection of non-exclusive Asian girl stuff.

Of course, the pics were usually quite small, and the bigger ones choked my dial-up connection and my RAM-challenged machine.

I remember how I felt back then. 9-11 had occurred less than 3 months prior. There was actually a physical sensation of shock that lingered. I thought that I might as well get my porn kicks while I could.

In 2002, I joined porn sites 76 times. A few of them were free or low-cost trials, but certainly not all.

c236dd (0) My first pay site was Playboy Cyber Club. It's better now, more video content, larger photos and higher resolution videos. There are now more regular features showcasing more babes than back then.

zzzins (12) I joined suzenet back in 1995 (ish...I think). Can't say I've gone back there and looked recently though to be honest.

Monahan (42) If my memory is accurate the first site I joined was SexyBabes.tv many years ago. I'm still a member although my tastes have migrated to video from photos with the advent of HD and the ability to download scenes as long as 1 hour in a single bite.

Candidly I've thought about dropping the site but with the addition of Babelicious to their lineup, while I don't get nearly as much material as I do with, say, Twistys, what they have is still very high quality.

The other end of the spectrum is Danni.com which I joined in 03 or 04 and loved it. The negative was their DRM, which they said would not stop me from creating my own stash on DVD discs that would still be viewable after I dropped my membership(they lied). But as long as I stayed a member and was on line I could acquire the requisite license.

Then when Danny Ashe sold it, the customer service and content slipped badly and their business practices started getting a bit sleazy. I quit the site, then tried a test month in 2006 only to find that it had remained rather bad,,,and still with the lousy DRM.

Haven't been back since and doubt that I ever will go back.

james4096 (126) Great topic. I wish I could remember mine. :(

I would go back to archive.org and check out what it looked like back then.

uscue (39) I had to say "other" in that it no longer updates but it's still online. I didn't click "same as it used to be" because that would mean it's still updating.

EasyDater was the site. Brazilian Facials was site number two. Maybe Bang Bus or Exploited Teens was site number three. Followed by 8th Street Latinas, then Cum 2 Oasis and Cathy's Cravings.

monty2222 (19) I think my first pay site was Deluxe Pass and I liked it back then. As far as I know it doesn't update (regularly) any more, even if it did I probably wouldn't join it since getting access to hundreds of sites with non-exclusive videos doesn't seem as good an idea as it used to do... So I guess my perception of it would be worse regardless of it still having the same qualities.

Wittyguy (95) Sadly, NeanderthalsGoneWild.com no longer seems to exist. Nor does the second site I joined, Cro-MagnonCumshots.com. Maybe I'm just getting old ? ;)

exotics4me (463) I finally remembered the name of the first site I joined. I joined it on a trial basis in 2002, it was one of those trials that says once you pay you get to see it all. I paid the trial, all I saw was her in a shower, covered with bubbles. I then joined the site, $30! She still didn't show it all! That site is Sweet Dominique. It is now part of a network that also has Brooke Skye's site on it. I don't think any of the sites update anymore. Damn tease.

turboshaft (24) Overall I would say "better than it used to be," thanks to numerous improvements in technology over the past twelve years since my first join (thank you high definition!), plus lots more content, models, ideas, etc.

Of course, there are a few problems:

First, the site has either gone softer or harder since your first subscription. You could blame this on the need to stay in business (see below), but if you join a site and love its content, your feelings could be hurt when they trash it up or bring it up from the gutter. Sticking with a proven formula seems to be a big challenge for too many sites there.

Second, it has gone on to porn site heaven (which probably exists deep within badandy400's hard drives), and will probably never be heard from again. I understand saving the American auto industry is important to some people, but who cares when our favorite sites die? Where's their bailout? I am not sure what would be worse here though; a site stops producing new content due to economic reasons, or radically changes its content to stay in business.

Third, and in my view the most important, you just can't replace that first paysite. It is like your first car, or first kiss, spanking (giving or receiving), girlfriend/boyfriend, sexual experience, spouse, etc. This also applies to the first time you join any new site you quickly learn to love; every subsequent subscription, no matter how great, will never feel the same as the first.

Great poll question! Brings up some of the few positive memories I have of the '90s.

pat362 (371) I'm not sure which was the first site that I joined
but I took a look at some old ccbill transactions and I found a maxhardcore membership back in 02. Needless to say that site no longer exist. As a matter of fact. I'd say that more than a dozen sites that I joined back then are either no longer active or total pieces of crap. I had a bad habit of joining single model sites. That is why I have such a bad feeling about all single models sites.

GCode (101) First site was Naughty America and well, they have not changed much. Which means, that's the exact problem with the content of this site. Everything is so damn repetitive that the scenes get old after a months stay in my opinion. Therefore, I put pretty much the same.

PinkPanther (46) The first site that I ever joined was LisaBoyle.com. And Lisa's a number of years older than she was then and now has Flauntgirls.com, which features her own photography. I probably joined Lisa's site when she was past her prime anyway, originally so several years later she doesn't look anywhere near as good to me

Great response. By any chance to you remember the site that was your first? Would just be interesting to see what it was with all that info you provided for sites in general.

GCode (101) Wow, after reading this I feel like such a newbie to porn in general. I basically joined my first pay site around 2004, never joined again until about 2007. Before that, yeah I glanced at playboys, penthouse, hustler, etc. in magazines. But, in reality, I've only been surfing and gathering content for a little over 2 years. I'm just a big newbie here! :)

Thank you. I think you already know the answer to your question; you asked me about them just the other day concerning their content. Maybe its my favorite site because it was my first...whatever the reason, I still love it.

Well you hit a good site as your first site because I just joined yesterday and I am liking what I see so far. I do have a few quirks but they are mostly navigational so far, the models are quite cute and I love the content so far.

Goldfish (67) Sapphic Erotica. Still a great site. They've upgraded to keep up with the times but I'd say the quality is pretty much the same.

Drooler (220) REPLY TO #15 - PinkPanther :

I was a member of Lisa's first site, too. Pix that maxed at 1008px, a funny size. I wonder how "hi-rez" they are at flauntgirls (the newer ones).

Bigger than that - similar to Misha Online. I don't recall exact dimensions, but they were in the middle of the pack for glamour site photos.

pinkerton (37) It was Private Gold and was just photos from the Private shoots and magazines, though I'm sue the content is available via some other Private website. Back in 1998, there was no broadband and hence so demand for downloading videos.
