elephant (67) I've never joined one but joined trials in the past, usually very limited to the point of being totally pointless and then they charge lots more on top so you end up maybe paying $39.99 instead of $29.99, I don't see the point in them, unless it was full access for 24 hours then I would think they would be OK.

tangub (155) I can't speak from experience as I've never taken a $1 or free trial but my perception of them is that they fall somewhere between not worth the effort and a scam. Doing my research on sites at PU/TBP coupled with a decent site tour usually means I know what sites I like before joining so I don't ever worry about needing a trial. There have been occasions when I've paid something like $5 for 3 days full access to a site and downloaded everything i've wanted in that time but sites that let you do that these days are few and far between and i've only done that 2 or 3 times in 10 years of joining paysites.

graymane (33) I say scam ... an' watch out for those little camouflaged boxes planted about that draws the unwitting into putting checks in them.
I've been roped into this trap a couple times myself.

hodayathink (18) I wouldn't go so far as to use the word scam, but they are traps if you're not paying attention. Between some sites setting the post-trial billing price higher than their normal subscription price and the prevalence of pre-checked cross sales, they generally aren't worth the effort.

Capn (28) Never go anywhere near them.

'Free' turns out to be nothing of the sort in 99.95% of cases.

Cap'n. :0/

gaypornolover (38) Never tried one, but they do sound too good to be true to me. I'd probably be a bit suspicious of any site that offered them TBH.

marcdc1 (174) I'm caught between scam and not worth the effort. I'm really interested in the feedback though. Maybe I'm all wrong.

Who ever submitted this question great job!

TheSquirrel (53) Either not worth the effort or they're a scam, so I went for they're a scam.

Denner (235) "Free"???? - nothing in porn is free - no matter what they say. Would never go there - and most is probably scam.

pat362 (373) It's one of the most ingenious scams you can come up with. I don't know how good it still is but even if they only get half of the people they used to. It can still be a lot of money in the pockets of the sites owner for very little effort on their part.

The vast majority of trials offer very very little of substance so what you often get is a glorified preview section.

RustyJ (145) Never tried, do not want to and have read too many warning stories describing how your cancellation period is too long to effectively cancel before rebill etc. etc.

Drooler (220) Never have done a dollar deal for porn. There's something psychological about price. It can't be too high but it can't be too low, either.

And as Pat362 pointed out, most trials are "glorified preview section(s)," which is paying to peek into the window from the coldness of the outside. Makes you feel like Oliver Twist.

Well, "Oliver Twisted," maybe.

BadMrFrosty (56) The problem I found with most of these sort of trials is while you do get access to the members area you are very limited to what you can actually watch or download rendering them pretty useless.

Cybertoad (Disabled) I have tried these so called trials and there are several problems.

1. Depending on the policy often not posted, you may join today at 4pm and have a until 4pm the next day. However if they are on a calendar day system and not a hourly you could be charged long before 4pm

2. Canceling is a nightmare, you have to cancel before the 24 hour period however. But if you cancel now it will often cancel right then, so one to get a full day would have to wait until the very last minute to get and actual day.

3. The nightmare of billing, most sites do not just let you join for one day, the stipulation is if you do not cancel the trail become a subscription and sometimes for more then a month all of a sudden that 1.00 join has become a 3 month 90.00 subscription.

The thing is every site varies so consumers can not assume that one trial is the same as another.

I avoid them like the plague, and do my research on joining. Many users of the trail think they will do a smash and grab, and often times their money is grabbed while there say there with a hard on and
with the blood racing from their heads did not see the checked box or the small print.

Also like BD said the trials can often be limited in either downloads or areas of the site you can access

exotics4me (463) I get the free offer from Porn Access every week. It's 3 days free access and turns into a $29.99 membership if not canceled. You can join the site here through TBP for $5 a month. I would rather pay the $5 for a month than free 3 days with the risk of not canceling it fast enough.
