||-Easy login. Username and password. No captcha.
-Epoch is the billing company.
-You get a confirming email on signup. Which is starting to get rare, for some reason. At least some of the sites I've joined in the last year, I've gotten no confirming email. How much does it cost to send an email? But why bother, since if the customer forgets his username or password, or has some problem about cancelling his membership, that's his problem, and in the meantime, the site can continue charging him for his membership.
-I'm seeing so many lovely young models at many different networks/sites. And this network has some truly gorgeous young models.
-Default viewing option. Select your favorite viewing option on how to view a scene, and the site will remember it. Not sure how useful this is, seems more like a gimmick than anything useful.
-No download limits.
-Download manager works. I use DownThemAll.
-Good download speeds. I regularly get 1.3MB/sec, which is my max download speed.
-Membership price recently reduced to $17.87/month. I'm not sure how long that price reduction will last.
-Videos have the date they were posted to the site.
-Pre-checked offer at signup has to be unchecked, or you will have a $1.00 1-day trial membership to some site, that automatically renews at $38.57/month. So if you miss the pre-checked offer, you will be paying $38.57/month until you figure out what's happening.
-Get thumbnails advertising other sites on the member's pages. If you paid to get inside, do you need this advertising thrown at you? But many sites are doing it.
-Large watermark bottom right side of videos.
-Small site. Only has 20 videos so far.
-19 of the 20 videos were previously posted at Tricky Masseur (part of the Teen Mega World network). There was one video at Rub A Teen that I did not match up. But that's probably because I didn't want to spend the time going through each video at Tricky Masseur.
||If you've been a member of Teen Mega World in the last 6 months, and you examined the Tricky Masseur site of that network, then you've probably seen all or almost all of the videos that are at Rub A Teen.
The Rub A Teen site offers more choices in the video definition than the Tricky Masseur site. For the videos that are at both sites, Tricky Masseur offers a low, medium and high definiton download. Rub A Teen goes one better: a low, medium and high definition, and a higher definition. (The high definition is 720p, the higher definition is 1080p.)
The Tricky Masseur site often has subtitles to go with the foreign language the actors/models speak. The Rub A Teen site videos do not have the subtitles. But once you have read the subtitles, you realize the words have little meaning, so the absence of subtitles is not a problem, because what the actors/models are saying is basically just noise.
Teen Mega World is a huge network, with a lot of great-looking models, and a lot of hot hardcore videos. It's certainly worth joining the network at least once, to look through their tremendous archive of hardcore videos.
Tricky Masseur has 93 videos. It's basically an archive site, having added only 1 new video in the last 7 months.
The Rub A Teen site has 20 videos total. 19 of the videos were already posted at Tricky Masseur (part of the Teen Mega World network).
The difference in file size between the 1080p version and the 720p version is huge:
For example, for a video with a runtime of 29 minutes 30 seconds (the Laura video):
Rub A Teen Laura video:
The 1080p MP4 file size is 2.08 GB.
The 720p MP4 file size is 1.05 GB.
Tricky Masseur Laura video:
No 1080p version is offered.
The 720p file size is 999 MB.
How many people are going to spend 2 GB per video of hard drive space?
Most of the videos are between 25 to 30 minutes in runtime.
So if you are going to keep the 1080p version on your hard drive, you are allocating around 2 GB per video. And if you are a collector of videos, you will be buying lots of hard drive capacity to store these huge video files.
Actually, I don't know why the file sizes at Rub A Teen are so large.
At Diesel network, for instance, they give you 1080p video for a 30 minute runtime, and the file size is 686 MB. That compares to 2.08 GB at Rub A Teen.
Comparing the bit rate of the 720p files (of the same video):
Rub A Teen Total bitrate = 5134 kbps Frame rate = 29 frames/second
Tricky Masseur Total bitrate = 4736 kbps Frame rate = 25 frames/second
Comparing the bit rate of a 1080p video, with a completely different 1080p video:
Rub A Teen Total bitrate = 10136 kbps Frame rate = 29 frames/second
Diesel site Total bitrate = 3199 kbps Frame rate = 29 frames/second
To increase the bit rate by a factor of 3.2, you are increasing the file size from 686 MB to 2.08 GB.
I don't know how these technical details play out. But as far as I can tell, you can't really tell the difference on a computer monitor that is 20+ inches in size between the 3199 kbps and 10136 kbps files.
Maybe on a large-screen TV monitor, you can tell the difference. But you are going to be spending hundreds of dollars on hard drives, as cheap as they are today, if you are going to collect videos that are 2GB in size.
If you enjoy the erotic massage niche, then I suggest signing up with the Teen Mega World network, where you get one site (Tricky Masseur) that focuses on that area, with 93 videos. Plus you get over 20 other hardcore sites that are mainly boy-girl sex, some solo vids, some lesbian vids.
All the Rub A Teen videos (except possibly 1 video) are at Tricky Masseur. And Tricky Masseur has over 4 times the videos that Rub A Teen does.
Basically, I think it makes little commercial sense to build a site that is a clone of a competitor's site. But I guess that the owners of Rub A Teen decided that the erotic massage niche was popular, and this is what they came up with as an inexpensive way to do it, because they are just buying/leasing some of the same videos that Tricky Masseur bought/leased.
For people who don't know about Tricky Masseur, then the Rub A Teen site can be a nice introduction to the erotic massage niche.
Rub A Teen is part of the Team Skeet network. Joining any one of their sites gives
access to 11 sites in that network, which currently consists of: Exxxtra Small-Her Freshman Year-Innocent High-Oye Loca-POV Life-Self Desire-She's New-Solo Interviews-The Real Workout-This Girl Sucks-Titty Attack.
I'm giving the Rub A Teen site a score of 73. If the Tricky Masseur site didn't exist, the Rub A Teen site score would be much higher.
