After having been on porn hiatus for a while I logged in today and found Twisty's advertising a $1, 2 day full access trial. Alright I think to myself. Catch up on some of the stuff since I last joined. WRONG. After paying out and logging in you get this lovely little message: "As a trial member you get access to 3 Scenes & 3 Photo Sets hand picked by Twistys Staff". Frickin' yeah. Obviously, don't bother with the current trial offer here.
Shap announced in the Twistys forum today that he has sold Twistys to the owners of Brazzers. He was craving more time with his family and I'm sure that he had built Twistys into a valuable business. I wish Shap the best. He's certainly been one of the most classy and open site-owners in all of his posts on this site. And while I felt that Brazzers was at one time a bait-and-switch operation, all of that pre-dated the current ownership, who have operated the site in a more honest way with a lot of high-quality material. So it seems like a good match and one that should bode well for the future.
To say that I've been disappointed with most sites these days would be an understatement. I wasn't really for sure if I was just running out of interest in most porn or if most porn just wasn't very interesting. So, I decided to take a trial of my all-time favorite site Twistys since it had been about 7 months since I was last a member. The first thing I noticed is the new, at least to me, way to download picture zips. You hover your mouse pointer over the zip icon and the different size options pop up. Just from first glance it looks like fall 2009 was when the "large" photos became available on picture sets which is a lot considering 3 photo sets a day. These large zips have 2000x3000 resolution pictures in them and I think that's more than acceptable. Even the "medium" zips are 1000x1600 resolution which is adequate and those look to date back into 2006 on some sets.
Not really for sure about the trial, similar to wittyguy's comment, maybe there are different trials, but the one I signed up with through PU directly to Twistys was $1 for 2 days. It lets me download the picture sets, but if I click a set to view in browser it says I need to upgrade to a full membership. I also cannot download movies in this trial. Anything that requires a click is bouncing me to the upgrade to full membership page.
That's not a complaint at all. The trial still lets you see everything that has been updated for every model AND download the picture sets. I can't see anyone complaining about that for $1.
Also want to say that if Twistys does one thing better than any site it is the quality of models, especially newer models. Having said that, they at least have confirmed it's not me losing my interest in porn just that most sites aren't delivering porn that interests me. You could maybe see this as a slight warning to those looking for a full trial for the $1 price. Also continuing in my praise of Twistys for not bailing out on us longtime fans. Once this month runs out, I like joining at the first of the month to make sure I get all the new Treats content for the month, I'll be back to a full membership.
I usually venture back to Twisty's once a year or so to catch up on anything that I've missed when browsing other super sites. Doing my annual checkup I noticed a couple of things:
1. Twisty's has a great full access trial membership for two days for a few bucks (please don't yank this Shap, I dig it). However, it is a bit curious that your fees can vary depending on which entry site you use. I found two day trial prices varying from $3.88 to $2.95 to $1.00 (the one buck deal is through the AnetteDawn site). A little weird but I guess it pays off to poke (figuratively that is) around. Also, you get different billing processors (ccbill or epoch) depending which site you join through.
2. As I'm more of a pic guy and Twisty's has lots of pics I like the site. However, this time around I noticed that a lot of models in both the hardcore and softcore sets seem overly cropped in that you rarely see full body shots. I don't mind closeups and tight shots but especially when it comes to solo models I like to see the whole body more than I what I get here. Just a suggestion for future crop jobs there guys.
While I'm on the pic topic I also note that the photosets seem a bit small. Not many sites push the 30 to 100 images per set but, again, when it comes to solo models a lot of these sets feel like they've been cut short. I don't need thousands of pics but more in this case would be better.
At the top of the updates page they say they go back at least 6 months, but they have links taking you back to January 2008. The site has been around longer than that and I am sure some people would like to see at least some of the older content. Going through the model pages is a pain because you have new stuff mixed with old stuff. So here is the trick!
Look in your URL box when on one of the monthly update pages, it should look something like this:
"http://random.members.twistys.com/" "updates?offset=-30&offsetmode=2" that random string of stuff changes so that links expire a couple times a day. Anyway, notice after "offset=" there is a number "-30" and this number gets higher with every month you go back. Once you run out of links on the update page just put in "-38" for example and that will take you back into 2007. The pages look just the same as they do for 2010 and all the links still work, even the zip file links on the main update page.
As of July 2010 it goes back to 105, which is October 2001. This coming August will make it go to 106 and so on each month.
Just a little something I thought I would share with all of you. It is not hacking in anyway, just makes getting around the site a little easier. Enjoy.
I just took a brief tour and while checking the updates I noticed that the videos are listed as "5 clips", "7 Clips." Is there an option to download a full video with one click or are they only available as individual chunks? Thanks!
It used to be a mystery to this user:
Why do I keep going back and join this site?
SOME of the material is non-exclusive (licensed), but still:
You get two video-updates each day and even better on the photo-deals.
The videos are now TOP in quality, mostly - ok, some old stuff is not THAT good in viewing quality, but it's now rare.
This is just a 'thumb-up' for the old Twistys - you know what you get - and to a fair price...
I'll keep coming back here in the future - a lot of videos here are just great!
