Don't you sometimes wonder?

Here are all those high ratings based on the amount of DVDs available and on some of the, admittedly, fine features of this site but is this the only reason for giving a site good marks?

I keep looking at the daily updates and see one scene after the other that's almost indistinguishable from the one (scene or DVD) that came before it or the one who came before that .. ad infinitum. I have been a member of this site quite a few times and do recognize its redeeming features but a steady mark in the nineties for basically giving you the same thing day after day?

Does that make sense? Or am I just getting too old and jaded? Or is it simply that nothing else is available and they couldn't change if they wanted to?

lk2fireone (194) It's human nature to always want a new toy.
But based on what's out there, VideoBox appears to be one of the best DVD sites available, especially considering the low monthly membership price.
So I think it's reasonable to give the site a very high score, based on extensive site contents + ease of access + low membership price.

Like I say, it's human nature to always want a new toy, new sensation, better, bigger, brighter videos, more original videos, etc.

But based on what's out there, this is one of the best DVD sites around, so I think it really does deserve a high score.

(Even though I personally don't care for most of the DVD material at this site. :) )

So call me confused. Or trying to be objective.

My question is why would anyone want to purchase the same old toy over and over again if it only differs very slightly from a previous one? I've been doing this myself for quite some time (multiple subscriptions to VideoBox and Videosz,) but think I've reached a point where, if someone doesn't attempt to sell me a new and original toy soon, I'm going to give up on this whole Porn business! :-)

There are too many mindless imitators out there .. and folks who support them unquestioningly with their money and reviews. Bigger is not always necessarily better. Judged by the wealth of contents, and some of Videobox's innovations, a ninety sounds fair but going by the quality (not technical) of the contents all these sites should get no more than an 80.

I am beginning to think that it all boils down to a) people who don't know anything about true eroticism, this is on the producer's side, b) the length of time one has watched porn, and c) one's age. This paragraph has been written to make me look more objective! :-)

And I find that your remarks: "Even though I personally don't care for most of the DVD material at this site." are far from confused and very objective. :) And I do know what you are getting at, most DVD sites are pretty much the same and among its peers VB is the best so why not rate it highly? Can't argue that, I just had to vent!

Denner (233) Oh, yes - I certainly wonder....every time I go back and join this site - it may take hours or a couple of days - and then it comes: Man, I've been here before and before and before - and most seems the same - as ever...

And, messmer: your input makes sense - a lot...

And why do a lot of us keep coming back? This user has problems answering that question - One possibility: a couple of new vids with new models or known favorite models in a couple of new vids for a low price - but that's maybe all - at least to this user....

I suppose part of it may be the fear on missing out on the odd gem.

This is why we continue to collect, despite having vast amounts of material that we seldom, if ever look at.

Greener grass?

PinkPanther (44) There is an ebb and flow to the quality of updates to Videobox.

There were years when I was looking at high ratings for this site and checking the updates and thinking - Meh - I can easily skip this!

At a certain point, there was a lot of archived material that was of interest to me plus a lot of recent updates that were of interest to me and I joined. At a point when I felt that they were providing enough of interest to make worth my while, I joined long-term.

They're in rather a fallow period for updates these days, for my tastes, so I'll be keeping my eye out for when my subscription runs out and seeing whether I want to re-up or let them buid up an archive that I'm interest in again.

Trouble is that happens to me with too many sites, Denner. I subscribe and re-subscribe and have no idea why I do it because this time around, once again, as you stated: "most seems the same - as ever..."
Do you think we'll ever learn to turn our backs on a once favorite site for good??? :-)

I agree with you about the fallow period, Pink Panther. I am not subscribing at present but keep going to the site regularly to see how good the updates are .. and they seem to be depressingly the same from one day to the next: generic porn. The only DVD site that originally gave me what I was looking for, American Vice, had lot of niche DVDs I had never seen anywhere else before but even they turned flat shortly before they shut down.
