Truth in advertising laws.

At My Horny Asians (part of the 21sextury network), they advertise $9.95 Month.
You click on the hot link, and you get 3 options to sign up:
1. 1 year, no rebill, $9.95/month, billed at one installment of $119.40 at one time.
2. 1 month, rebill at $9.95 after 4th months. In the first four months you pay $19.95/month.
3. 3 month, rebill at $19.98/month. Recurring at $59.95 every 90 days.

So I don't see any option to sign up for $9.95 for the first month, whether it's one-time only, or $9.95 for first month, and a higher price for succeeding months.

I've seen a similar advertisement at another site, where they advertise $9.95/month, but it turns out, when you go to the signup page, that is the rate for a 1-year subscription.

Which seems slightly deceptive to me.

If they advertise $9.95/month, and at the signup page it turns out that $9.95/month is only available with a 1-year subscription, I wonder if that is legal.

There are supposed to be "Truth in advertising laws".

From the internet:

http://www.ftc.gov/opa/reporter/advertising/

FTC Resources for Reporters
Truth in Advertising and Marketing

When consumers see or hear an advertisement, whether it’s on the Internet, radio or television, or anywhere else, federal law says that ad must be truthful, not misleading, and, when appropriate, backed by scientific evidence. The Federal Trade Commission enforces these truth-in-advertising laws, and it applies the same standards no matter where an ad appears – in newspapers and magazines, online, in the mail, or on billboards or buses. The FTC looks especially closely at advertising claims that can affect consumers’ health or their pocketbooks – claims about food, over-the-counter drugs, dietary supplements, alcohol, and tobacco and on conduct related to high-tech products and the Internet, such as the dissemination of spyware. The FTC also monitors and writes reports about ad industry practices regarding marketing of food, violent movies, music, and electronic games to children.

When the FTC finds a case of fraud perpetrated on consumers, the agency files actions in federal district court for immediate and permanent orders to stop scams; prevent fraudsters from perpetrating scams in the future; freeze their assets; and get compensation for victims.


But internet sites advertise $9.95 month, and then at the signup page, it turns out that only applies with a 1-year subscription.

So I guess it's misleading, but legal.

Edit01: If you use the PU link to 21sextury, you can join that network for $9.95 for the first month, recurring at $29.95 every 30 days.

The 21sextury network includes access to My Horny Asians. So there are sometimes work-arounds to getting a cheaper subscription price.

Monahan (38) The folks at 21Sextury produce a superb site from a content and quality standpoint but have been ethically challenged (or worse) for several years in their business practices. Apparently they don't understand that, when they piss off a Porn User, they do serious damage to their profitability. There's enough money in the jizz biz that they don't need to use deceptive practices to boost their profits.

Many other sites use the same gambit, but always preceded with "price as low as..." 21Sextury doesn't do that, but the PU/TBP price is accurately stated.

That's why I won't sign up for any site that isn't listed in Porn Users.

Hi,

First of all, I'd like to thank you the honest feedback, but I'm sure there is a kind of misunderstanding.
If you're checking the Join page of My Horny Asians you can see clearly how our pricing works.
http://signup.myhornyasians.com/signup/s...hp?step=2&signup

The mentioned $9.95 / per month is available if you're choosing the annual option. If you purchase a subscription for one year it costs $119.40 which means $9.95 monthly price. It's a really beneficial offer instead of the regular $29.95 per month.
To avoid the confusing situations you can read the followings indicated: "billed at one installment of $119.40 one time"

Last but not least, we're offering a discounted, monthly recurring subscription for 21Sextury Network for PornUsers, where you can get the first month for $9.95.

Best Regards,
Ed Freiland
