The worst kind of regional pricing...

Happend upon this site - seems to be a new one in the Joymii/X-Art/Orgasms genre of, dare I say, sensual hardcore.

Quite appealing, but... another one of those sites that thinks 1=$1, so whereas US folk pay $30, in the UK it's 30, over 50% more.

I'll wear the odd extra few $ here and there - such discrepancies are endemic, so I'd miss out on some good material if I was that principled about it. But this definitely counts me out.

Interestingly, it's from the same network as Twistys, who are quite happy to charge me the same $ price as everyone else.

elephant (67) I feel your pain Otah, it really is so annoying isn't it cause its just so wrong, I agree exchange rates and that a few dollars more can be hard to take but its something you'd be will to do but when its like this its just very unfair.

I keep to my principals and just will never join one of these sites that thinks its ok to do this to UK and Euro customers.

Never understood why the bank that takes the money can't automatically convert $ to £. when you withdraw cash abroad from your card it's done automatically....

They can - we buy porn and stuff on eBay, Amazon etc in $ using a £ credit card; the merchant gets the same, and the bank converts it using their own exchange rate.

It's just sites like this that see we are in the UK and decide to charge £29.95 instead of $29.95 - it's entirely their call. Grr. Etc.

gaypornolover (38) Drives me nuts mate! As you say I'm used to paying a few dollars more but to be charged the same in £ as US users pay in $ is totally unfair.

It's over a 50% markup and cannot be explained by currency conversion fees.

Only way we can try to stop it is to boycott such sites I guess.

Yeah exactly it would make so much more sense, its certianly strange why they think in Europe we would think its ok to rip us off and we will pay, they are losing out in the end, people read about it on these sites like pornlovers and will say oh right I'm being ripped off I'll stay away from them, simple as.
