No money in porn

After being blocked for downloading too much in 24 hours even though I set the DM to 550kb/s (should only be 45gb in 24hours), I was told to set this to 500kb/s by their support (41gb per day) to avoid the problem. The strange thing is I was sent rant about how European customers who actually download 24 hours a day cost them money! (European hosting being more expensive)
They only get Ä3.49 of my Ä20 after paying commission etc, so there must be no money in porn these days!

pat362 (375) 1-People producing porn make a lot less money these days than in previous years. Tube sites, Illegal torretn sites, many more places for people to get pron are the main reasons.

2-The recession has made this even worse. Most Coutries are still suffering from this world recession so people are using their porn money for other things like food, and other essentials.

3-I may be in a minority but I think that any site that limits it's members to 41GB of allowable downloads per day is more than generous. That's over 1200GB of content at the end of your month long membership.

anyonebutme (14) Bandwidth is still *very* expensive on the server end. Dedicating an entire month of 500kb/s to one person is losing money. I have two T1 lines here for the dedicated bandwidth and guaranteed service, cannot do what is done here on dsl or cable, and the dedicated 300kb/s service costs ~$2,000/month. Now Sapphic Erotica is on a much faster connection, so each kb/s is cheaper, but it's still very expensive compared to the residential services users compare to.

I have to agree with pat362... whereas it's annoying when sites limit you to eg 2gb per day - stopping you even downloading just a few scenes in one go - bandwidth does cost the sites and 41GB is pretty generous.

Unless you were trying to download an entire site with eg a 3-day trial membership - which, to be fair, isn't really in the spirit of things - I can't imagine that being much of a restriction.

And if you can download >1TB of content for around $30, there's really not much of anything - porn or otherwise - that can compare in value :)

There are some sites/network with over 1TB of content that's worth downloading so I can see where someone might be a little nervous to be limited to a certain level of allowed Gigs but I believe that the least someone should do is be willing to stay longer than one month to get access to all of it.

The issue I have is not the download limit, at least queued links donít go dead with this site which is a huge plus point. The issue is the rant concerning how they were losing money with customers like me. After all it is a free market; they set the price and the rules for their site, so ranting at customers regarding loosing money is unprofessional in my opinion.

Hmm... considering that 720p HD video is perhaps 3gb/hour, this site's limit allows downloading 12 hours of video a day, so approx 1TB over a month. If there's that much content that one person actually wants... definitely VFM that can't be argued with.

But mashy, you are right - no matter how profitable certain customers may or may not be, if their activity is within the allowed limits, then it's unprofessional to complain - a customer is a customer, and hopefully valued as such!

Sorry if I got the wrong impression about your comment. I agree that customer relation is a must for any business who deals with the public.

At least the person was being honest with you.

Even though it is a business, it is still being operated by people who have the full range of emotions as everyone else in the world. It takes two people to enter a business transaction, it goes both ways. It's just not something one would understand unless you give it a shot yourself running a business (any business in any industry, not just porn). Think the infamous Jet Blue steward who made the news last year.
