Be careful if adding other sites

This is one of those learn from my mistake posts. Bang Bros are now offering more than 10 different addon packs, but you can only add them for the special prices once you're inside the members area of Bang Bros. Their biller, while not real well known, has never given me a problem and the biller itself replies to any problems with 24 hours from my experience. I had signed up for Bang Bros then added the Super Pack. When I went to cancel, I canceled "Bang Bros" from the support page. That didn't fully work. It canceled the Super Pack, but not the Bang Bros membership. After I went back and looked, after an email to their biller, there was a second membership listed on my account, which was Bang Bros itself. I hadn't canceled it. They could do better with this by listing the Super Pack as Super Pack and not Bang Bros, but I could have clicked the drop down box to see two accounts too.

So if you add anything besides Bang Bros, be sure when canceling to use the drop down menu to see the other accounts so you can cancel them too. In a way, I felt like this is misleading, but in another way, I can see how maybe someone would just want to cancel the addons, but keep Bang Bros, so it's iffy as to how you take this practice.

rearadmiral (340) Exotics - I just joined this site and have a question about the add-on packs. I can't see that there are any "packs" available, just individual add-on sites. And some of those can be very expensive. The site seems to have undergone a major re-work because the link from TBP takes me to a site that looks quite different from what the site looks like now, although I do have an option to go back to the old site look. I'd do that, but on the old site download managers don't seem to work even though they do for the same scene on the new site. Also, the old site seems to filter out scenes from the add-on sites but those are shown in the new site - with no warning that you can't download them. You might see a scene that you really want only to find when you click on it that you can't have it unless you pay an additional $20.

Anyway, all that to ask am I understanding you correctly when you say there were bundled add-on sites at one time? If so, those are either buried deep or not available anymore.

Overall, I'd have to say that I'm pretty underwhelmed by this network. I really expected better considering that they are so well known. I joined specifically for a new Tanner Mayes anal scene and in the WMV version the sound is completely screwed up. It seems to be in sync at the beginning but it gets out of whack throughout and by 3/4 the way through it has to be off by a minute or more. I'll try another version tomorrow.

I don't have a membership right now, but this is what I remember being there.

Super Pack - Dancing Bear, The CFNM Show, College Rules and one other. These were $24.95 each around this time last year and were stream only.

DVD Pack - No idea what this is, it's some kind of high priced DVD site similar to Videobox.

Then they had a whole list of sites with Spanish name. If you join any of the Spanish sites, you get access to all of them for 24.95. It's very rare, mostly South American models. I want to say the name of it is Culiando.

They also had Reality Kings offers that actually changed price nearly everyday from $9.95 to $24.95.

The site I see when visiting as a guest is the same one I reviewed from. They have been putting subtle and not so subtle changes in for a couple years now, so it's hard for me to say if the changes were there when I was a member. I had been planning on joining again, probably this weekend and will let you know if you do and notice anything differently.

Thanks for this exotics. These are the sites that are still available but there doesn't appear to be any ability to bundle any of them any more. There may be, but it isn't obvious. The fact that some of them are streaming only means I'll steer clear of them. One site I was thinking about paying for is pretty pricey and the reviews note that it hasn't updated in three years.

I'm really surprised at how middle-of-the-road this site is. The biggest thing I've noticed about the site (pat362 noted this as well) that the site is a tool to sell ads and ungrade. This happens on other sites too, but I've never had it so up-front.

I should have been clearer about the Super Pack's 4 sites. At one time, all 4 of those sites were standalone sites for $24.95 each and were stream only. So to put all 4 into one package for one price is a bundle. Once they made this bundle, they started allowing downloads. So those sites are no longer stream only and you get all four for $24.95. I had time to think about what I had said in this comment and my review. Haze Her is another of the addons, but the deal I was offered was to Brandi Belle for $1.25 for 3 days unlimited access and downloads. With the fast internet speed was able to download the 200+ scenes from it in two days. This offer came about 2 weeks into a membership. I signed in, it popped up and said it was a gift for being a loyal customer.

And I didn't notice the negative part of the upsells since I usually have at least one of the addon packs so I get most of those scenes that would otherwise require payment to download. It's not much different than how Videobox is with their Evil Angel and Vivid channels. VB keeps the Kink and Reality Kings content out of search results, but the Evil Angel and Vivid still show up.

As for middle of the road, I would guess you are running into the same thing you did on Reality Kings since the models are more on the curvy side. Outside of subjectivity, it's hard to deny the technical quality, the quantity or the value. But you shouldn't feel too bad there. A lot of our members here love Teen Mega World, I was bored with it within a few days because all the models are slim. I'm running into that again on another site rated high by members here, Fucked Hard 18. I've been a member for 2 weeks and have downloaded 6 scenes/videos/pictures because the models don't really interest me. I've always had problems with that when writing a review since I try to be subjective towards the quality, quantity, but have trouble being subjective towards the model types if a site mainly focuses on one type.

I don't know if this will help on Bang Bros, but I started using the "sites" button and going through each of their sites instead of trying to go through the whole network at one time. This way I found the sites/genres I preferred that they have, from there was able to go to individual models that stand out.

Thanks for all the useful information. I do appreciate it. I agree that I'm probably pre-disposed to not liking the site because the models aren't what I normally look for, but even when I approach it objectively it has some serious flaws. The biggest annoyance is that the site is heavily reliant on ads. The price of your membership gets you access to a lot of porn, but also to a huge amount of advertising and upselling.

My membership turned out to have an unusual quirk too. TBP says that the trial is limited so I signed up for the full membership on May 30. That seemed fine until 10 minutes later when my bank called and said they had put a hold on my credit card because they were suspicious of the biller. I said everything was okay and they asked if there would be other charges through this biller and I said it wouold be just this once. This morning I tried to access Bang Bros and I can't download anything. Even the regular sites want me to 'upgrade.' I was about to contact support and when I was looking at the confirmation email it turns out I ended up with some sort of a one-day full trial membership. It was to rebill on the same day - May 30 - which seems weird. But... since I told my bank that this was a one-time thing they blocked the rebill so I no longer have access. That's the bad news. The good news is that I learned that I really don't like Bang Bros and I got off light with a $1.50 charge.

I only wish I could learn other lessons so inexpensively.

Again, thanks for taking the time to give me the information I was looking for.
