I’ve been an active internet porn buyer for more than 15 years and I had to ask myself why I’d never joined Twisty’s since it seems to be one of the larger and more popular sites around. So I joined. I realize that a lot of any reaction to a site is subjective and my subjective response to the site is that it lacks any real heat. In is recent review of the site, Graymane hit the nail on the head when he noted that the site seems to be lacking heat. For me, I think a lot of that lack of heat comes from the fact that this isn't the kind of site I’d usually join. Objectively it’s a great site, but subjectively it isn't for me.
The site uses a ‘trick’ commonly used by many sites in that it sells itself as a network when it really isn't. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but there is a main site where everything in available and then the ‘sites’ allow you to filter the scenes and photos further. For example, all the hardcore scenes can be filtered by selecting the ‘site’ called “Twisty’s Hard.”
The site is huge with more close to 7700 videos uploaded. 385 of those feature b/g hardcore sex. 186 are lesbian and the remainder are solo girl. The site caters to photo collectors too, with equal emphasis on photos. (I’d prefer to tell you exactly how many photo sets are available but I ran out of patience. The site only allows the user to advance two pages at a time and after advancing through almost 400 pages of videos two pages at a time I just couldn’t bring myself to do that again. This is a minor flaw that should be fixed.)
I collect videos so this review will be on that part of the site.
The videos are mostly offered in three resolutions, 240, 480 and 720. Ordinarily I’d opt for the 720 for quality but I always look for a balance of resolution and file size. A problem with the site is that there is a vast chasm between the file sizes for the 480 and the 720 resolutions. It wasn’t unusual to have a scene where the 480 resolution was 500MB and the 720 was more than 2GB. Because of that difference I opted to go with the 480 and those are 1024x576 and 3000kb/s. There are some scenes that offer a fourth resolution of 1080 and with those there tends to be less of a gap between the 480 and 720 files. I can’t say how many scenes offer the 1080 resolution because they aren't marked and it isn't an option on even most of the newest updates.
Speaking of updates, the site doesn’t disappoint in that there is one new video and one photo set added per day.
The site allows download managers and I had no problem using one. I had no issues with links timing out but most of my links were never more than a half hour old anyway. I didn’t encounter any download limits. One problem I did encounter was a wide variation in download speeds. There were times when I saw downloads as fast as 15MB/s but there were a lot more times when the speeds were lower than 3MB/s.
My three biggest complaints about the site are purely subjective and I haven’t factored them into the score. Depending on your tastes these may be seen as positives for you. The site is primarily a solo girl site and that isn't something that I collect. I find solo scenes boring because they lack any interaction with another person. I find that interaction, when done right, creates a sexual tension and for me that’s where the heat comes from. Second, the site seems to favor models with large breasts, whether they’re real or fake. This is especially true of the older videos as the newer ones do seem to have a bit better balance between smaller-breasted models and ginormous-breasted models. The final complaint is that there aren't a lot of anal scenes and those that are offered are mostly older and with European models. (As an aside, searching for anal scenes will bring up hundreds, but they include solo scenes in that count too. To be fair, once you get the search results for anal you can then further sort by site and selecting “Twisty’s Hard” will give you all the hardcore scenes. If you’re interested in this niche, there are only 23.)
Overall the site is well laid out and it is relatively easy to find what you’re looking for. You can sort by model, there is an effective search function and they use tags effectively. Navigating is easy here.
The bottom line is that this is a great site as long as you know in advance what you’re getting: the site is primarily a solo girl site that offers both videos and photo sets and they add in some hardcore b/g and lesbian to keep things interesting and to offer something for everyone. The site has some flaws but overall they do more right than they do wrong. I won’t be back (for the subjective reasons I’ve noted) but I would recommend the site to someone who likes solo girl stuff with a sprinkling of relatively tame hardcore. The site certainly delivers on that.

#Hoards of very beautiful women. Most include videos. All have picture galleries; enough that you'll stay busy downloading.
# HD comes with all the accolades Twisty promised us.
#allotted space for votes and comments
# unbelievable, heavenly crafted anatomical infrastructure ..no "warts and all" associated with any of these beauties.
#videos up to 15 minutes.
#For those inclined, unusually long, strip teasing
#Hardcore, softies, lesbos, something for everybody but solos (predominate).
#Rather simple navigation
#Should get a good discount if you look for it.
#popular site. My second time around
#Particularly annoying was that nearing my termination I had to login again after almost every video clip.
#Way too many shoots done places and in positions that did nothing for me ...example: chairs, showers and outdoors. Although we've yet to see close ups of rears fresh from being seated in a mud puddle.
#Have yet to find my few video downloads anywhere. This could be my own fault reading their techie's instructions.
#A proctologist dream site ...Rectum sizes and opening galore. Panoramic close-ups are so voluminous medical students would do well to considering a go at joining.
Complete with Technicolor highlighting bowel structure, hemorrhoidal close ups, hairy asses, and pairs and pairs of hanging balls abound. Compounded by Agonizingly long clips of this eye-sore going non-stop ...... I suppose when the cameraman's arms become so heavy they simply drop equipment and "head" fo the "head."
With all twisty's hype, on this second visit I came away still combing the four corners looking around to find it. (the hype that is )
I mean, sure, one has to admit sight-savoring, eye-candy depicted this great stuff does abound throughout the ranks of these killer-babes.;
And along with those goodies came the obligatory overload of erotic-crushing smiles, digital foreplay (twisting nipples, among other things cupping and arborizing their pristine mammarys, followed often by just moving from side to side in a repetitive motion ....seemingly to kill time before summing up their act with the good stuff)
I call that interlude "the body waltz" because they just move about aimlessly in the same motion.
I even wolfed down a hefty tray of raw oysters once before Twistys came on stage this time hoping to get a rise out of my dozing pecker. However , All I got from that was heartburn for perhaps eating too fast.
I also ought to mention here another porn related malady resurfacing by this site.... namely the reoccurrence of an old condition I sometimes get with a show's stagnating non-occurring erotic stimuli coupled with said sites' reoccurring but expiring occurring 30 day occurring sneaky pete reoccurring membership policy.
I just call the condition wherein a site leaves you numb with boredom "phalluses paralyses."
For me this recent sojourned into Twisty's "reoccurring" renewals, I found myself again a reoccurring victim of erectile disinterest. The condition came on mercilessly leaving me considering inventing new ideas to introduce positive blood flow back into a lifeless penis.
Forgive me, but I think I might've gotten a tad carried away with just trying to give a favorable review here ....inclusive, of course, nourishing the fact I'm shamefully off topic.
I know that makes no sense but For the lack of an official medical name, I just call the condition "phalluses paralyses."
Old geezers like me get those things for a Varity of reasons .....don't'cha know?
Okay ..... so I've been a little "hard" on Twisty with this review. Wait! "hold-it" can I get another AMEN on the relative connotation "hard?"
Alright listen up! Enough non-sense, already.
So in my final judgment, and in all fairness, Twisty is a site I have to recommend ....The sky rocking number of flawless beauty as well as the sheer volume of the whole package alone speaks volumes. (excuse the double entry of the word volume) But its always been one of my favorite words ....and its legal.
So, guys, FWIW ... by all means "charge" on into Twisty website with my hardest blessing.
But for me .....I don't see a reoccurrence.

This site has very attractive models and I'm sure you will recognize some of them from other well known sites. You will not be disappointed by the beauty presented here.
My interest is purely in photography, so please excuse me if I don't discuss video sets. It is not fair to discuss something I never entered in to.
Camera work and poses are above average and the latest sets typically average around 100 images. The latest sets have choices in image size. The largest size is 2000 X 3000. Even the smaller sizes range from 1000 to 2000, depending on their age. The cutoff between the larger to smaller sets is between 2009 to 2010.
I can't argue the cost. Joining from "The Best Porn" was $9.95 for the first month. This is extremely generous.
I have been a member for less then one month and have run into several technical issues. One during this very review. I will give Twistys a plus for having a very quick response time when directly contacting someone for support, but these glitches are becoming the norm.
Not at first, but sometime during my subscription this site has gone through a change. When I first got my subscription I was able to get zip files of both new and older photo sets. Now, sets older then 2010 are not available in zip. I am only able bring up individual images of these older sets and make a "save image as". I don't remember getting any notification of this change and I can't say if this is temporary or permanent.
Twistys is limited to just picking one category for searches, such as model or solo. You can do a search by typing in a list of terms, but if any one of theses terms is not in a set description, that set will not come up.
Twistys has the finest looking models in the industry and excellent photographers. They update the size of their photography to stay on par with the industry and give you choices of size in all their latest photo images. The price of $9.95 for the first month is very generous.
Sadly, in the middle of my subscription I lost the ability to get zip files of photo sets older then 2010.
Searches are limited. You can type in a model, boy/girl, and oral, but don't expect to get every set that fits all these choices. The best advice is to keep your searches simple and be prepared to sift through multiple sets to find what you want.
I can give a positive account of their support system, because I used it more then once, but that is not a good endorsement of their website in general.
A last issue I will bring up now, because I ran out of room in the "cons" section; after I finished with a set, I would naturally back out to continue searching, only to be brought back to the very first page. I could be any number of pages into my search and always be dragged all the way back to the first page. This is minor, but when you are planing an evening of downloading this starts to get annoying.
If I were to measure this site on the beautiful women and the quality of the photography it would have a very high rating, but I can't ignore the loss of zip files for older photo sets, the constant technical difficulties that came up or the difficulty in doing searches. These brought this site's rating down for me.
So if you can live with the cons, I have listed, you will find models that rival the best sites in this industry and in quality HD photos.

Chat never had a porn star use it.
Crosschecked items (BEWARE)
I was a member back in 2010 I had hoped the site would have improved it was ok then just unreliable.
Toads over view, the site is pretty, plastered with gorgeous women, the front page of updates is the sites masterpiece. But the site behind uses and old server engine and looks like it did in 2008. The site was slow very often simple downloads of video took 30-40 minutes and I have a 50mb connection. Could not get download manager to work, but Firefox queued them ok. Search never worked and bonus sites are unattended with dead links, blank pages. No downloads just a mess in my opinion.
Toads : Licks : The newer items are in HD the site misleads those that join to think the site has allot of HD when less then 1% are HD many photosets are grainy even newer ones. That’s not to say there are not amazing videos and pictures, but they advertise 1.6+ Million Photos 46,000+ Videos and many are subpar old formats and grainy. I would say 20,000 pictures are good and 2000 videos are good. That’s a great deal still but when you think you are getting a million picture of good or better you are not.
Good Stuff , the site has a nice simple navigation and easy to understand downloads and usage, The site has allot of their own material and most only seen at Twistys. I joined for only $9.99 on a bonus deal so was well worth the join. Cbill cancellation was easy no problems so far.
Cybertoads Bottom Line
The site is good but not great, support never answered me in 30 days and 6 emails, even using the forum resulted in no answers. The chat never had stars use it and there is no future advertisement of when it may be back. Lots of dead links on videos and pictures. Which is a big pain in the ass to think you are getting a great collection and its dead and support does not respond. Quality varies from stunning to WTF, inconsistencies among photographers makes the site unreliable. But Tammy is one of the best look for her shoots they are top notch. The women their tend to shoot much better.
I probably won’t be back for another few years. The site had material I downloaded back then, but many were dead links to. Twistys took allot of their material and moved it to the other sites to help fill. The site is worth $9.99 not the 29.99 they advertise and watch for the subtle crosschecks.

Great content, updated frequently, an insane amount of back content, quality of the newer stuff is pretty good.
Poor navigation tools, does not do a good job fixing errors/bugs quickly.
Twisty's had been a site that I always wanted to give a shot because it seemed like it was right up my alley as far as the content provided. There is just a ton of stuff here and everyone is going to find content they enjoy.
The biggest problem is that their navigation system is spotty, their advanced search is down. Even when I find a girl I like the option to search for similar models doesn't even work.
You can tout the high amount of content all you want, but at the end of the day, if your navigation system is junk and you aren't fixing it (judging by the reviews on this site, and their local message board it's been broken for a while) then people are only going to be able to access a small amount of that content without spending way more time than necessary doing it.
I hope they listen to the feedback on their message boards and on review sites like this. This would be an amazing site if they would just fix their navigation. Until then I wouldn't recommend it to other people.

- Huge amount of content
- Great TBP price
- Pretty much every well-known US model featured
- Multiple daily updates
- Some well-known glamour photographers
- Most videos have no music
- Members area dated, a bit glitchy
- Advanced search offline
- Zip file names could be more helpful
- Content arguably uninspired
- Fairly short login timeout
I joined Twistys as a snap decision; it's a bit more glam than I usually prefer but it featured a number of models I like and the TBP price of $10 for the first month was too good to refuse.
To login you have to endure both a captcha and some cross-sells, but once there, the members area is fairly uncluttered. It proclaims 3,800 models, 3.4m photos and 100K video clips. I can't confirm this since my own figures were going to be a metric gazillion of each - there is lots of stuff here, going back over a decade. There are typically 3 pictures sets + 2 videos per day, which indicates the size of the site.
However, take the above with a pinch of salt - most picture sets are 100-150 pictures, with zips available, and recent sets from approx the past 3 years go up to 3K size. Similarly most videos are split into 5-8 clips - but you can download the whole scene (anywhere from 10 mins for solo videos to 25 mins for hardcore) as a single file, in sizes up to 720p - again for about 3 years - before then the quality is typically half that.
It does feel slightly dated, though, and is slow to respond - I actually resorted to the public site for browsing models, since it was faster than paging through the model list on the members area. There is a free text search, but no advanced search for finding models by age/hair colour/build etc - it does exist but is broken and has been for some time. This is a shame since it is a necessity on a site this large.
My comment about it featuring models I like - probably applies to everyone here - I wouldn't know where to start when reeling off names, since pretty much every US model is here; along with some of the more popular European and UK models too.
The style is very centrefold glam, such as you'd expect to see in Penthouse etc - the models made up, studio lit with typically sexy lingerie. In some cases it's ordinary; in others it's very good, and Holly Randall - one of the best photographers in the genre - features heavily, as does Tammy Sands, who's work is similar. Also quite a lot from Digital Desire - the soft-focus style is quite distinctive - and most of the UK models featured seem to be shot by APD Nudes, so this site can give you a taste of that also.
Material features full nudity (well, not actually full, depending on your definition; sometimes something stays on, and often - infuriatingly - the high heels) and the majority (not all) feature masturbation, probably roughly evenly split between fully manual and with toys. The focus is largely on solo material - but I'd say - and this is just a rough guess - that maybe 20% is girl-girl, and 10% hardcore. But with the size of the site, that's still a lot if either is something you are after.
This is slightly tricky to score; I found the content a bit uninspiring, as I generally prefer something with a bit more subtlety, or a theme, such as voyeurism - anything that can put me in the scene rather than just looking at a girl posing for the camera. So that's probably why I got more from the videos than the photos here - quite a few feature some fun dirty talk from the models - and almost all of them are devoid of the usual cheesy music track, which was very refreshing.
So if my review seems utilitarian, it's because the site arguably is - it is what it is, a huge site of glam US model content - but with the quantity here there are some good bits and the price is great. If the centrefold style is your thing, this is definitely recommended; for others, you are still likely to find stuff from models you like.

The content is quality. The photo galleries are zipped and many are availible in various qualities (low/med/hq). The videos are available in multiple formats (wmv/mp4/mov) and qualities as well.
The site offers an array of beautiful women, mostly European with a good dose of Latin & Asian models. Most of the content is female only (solo or all girl), but they have couple (m/f, etc) galleries & videos too.
The site offers search for female talent and content (Red Head, Cum Shot, Dildo, etc) which helped in navigation.
I also loaded my download manager with over 100 links and let it run with no problem. So many sites nowadays have limits or cookies that reset, no problem here. The site also met my internet speed limit, no lag at all.
Many of the women listed mid 2008 or before (going back to 2004) have their videos/galleries unlisted from their model page; but in some cases the content is still on the site. For example, Trina Michaels is listed as having 1 gallery, but there is not link to it like the more recent models. I found not only 1 gallery, but 2 so far, not by searching her name, which draws a blank, but by perusing content searches. On top of that, I found 1 video so far.
If you're a fan of male stars you are out of luck, they are not searchable or labeled in any way.
It's a good site. Huge and high quality across the board, content wise. If they ever modernize the search ability it would be an A+ in my book.
They update everyday (literally) and there is so much to look at & enjoy, it's well worth the price of admission. Just be prepared to look around. There is a lot to see. :)

WARNING - My account got hacked and incurred charges
I joined through MBI-Probiller and just noticed several charges for Twisty's cams. I didn't sign up for that nor did I use it. I contacted MBI-Probiller first and they were useless. They actually went through their usual stuff about why I should remain a member even after I explained that I wasn't a member and my account was hacked.
Exercise care and keep an eye on your account!
The site owners were helpful and had the fraudulent account closed and the charges reversed but the biller's support was absurd.
I contacted customer support to ask why the thumbnails for older sets didn't match the set. I was told this was because they are eliminating zip downloads for older sets - 2010 and older. I don't see why that would affect the thumbnails and customer service had no explanation. However, a lot of the older sets do not have ZIPs. From what I gather I expect the zips are in the process of being removed.
Customer service is run by a third-party and has very little information about what's going on on the site itself.
I sent a message to their feedback address and haven't received a reply.
As you navigate backwards in time you will eventually get to the point where the thumbnails no longer match the photo sets! I've seen this a number of times, but the following example seems to be repeatable:
1. Go to the models page and select Nicole Graves (She has lots of sets)
2. Go to page 6 -- all the thumbnails should match
3. Go to page 7 -- starting about half way down the page (Nov 2012) you should see thumbnails of other models, but when you open the set it will be Nicole.
I bit on the $10 per month offer and man am I regretting it. I haven't been here in a few years and boy have things changed (for the worse) under the new management.
Everything is now housed under the twistysnetwork portal. You can select a site and choose pics or vids or both to view. Sh*t immediately goes south after that. The page display only allows for 20 scenes. After that you can only advance 2 pages at a time (big problem with a site this large). Say you're on page 24 and you can click on a scene. After you're done you click the "back" button on your browser; PRESTO, you automatically get taken back to page one (a problem with a Flash driven sites with no internal site "back" and "forward" buttons). Now you get to keep on clicking two pages at a time to get back to the page you were on and repeat ad infinitum, ad nauseum. If you were screening under just pics or just vids it forgets that too. If you were on a particular subsite of Twistys sometimes it forgets that too.
Using the advanced navigation doesn't fix the problem and neither does switching browsers. The url specs in the browser only show that you're on a single page no matter what internal page you might be on so you can't manually override the "back to square one" problem either.
Postscript: The next day I finally figured a work around, you have to right click on a scene and open in a new tab (duh me). Still, why should I have to do this? It doesn't help that their regular search engine is crappola either. The inability to page jump on a site with so much content is still a pain.
They are running a promo for $10! (watch out for the cross-check) I just re-joined so I haven't seen much, but so far it looks about the same as it did in 2012 with more content. They still don't display sets on one page. Videos are 720p max and images are 3000 across max. Many very (too) familiar models here. Very easy to download zips. A lot of advertising...
For $10 I don't know how you can go wrong! (Read my old review.)
As of today Twistys has reduced it's update schedule from what was once 3 photo sets and 2 videos a day only 6 months ago to only 1 photo set and 1 video a day. The reason? A major decline in memberships (income) due to a major decline in quality of new content over the last 3 months. Now that's all they can afford.
Twistys still has a lot of great historical content, but new content is rapidly becoming mostly 2nd rate stuff you'd find on free sites AND now there's less of it. They also censor most negative comments. The new content manager is on Twitter and acts like he doesn't care about the site and it shows. Of course the VP doesn't give him much funding to work with anymore either.
The MindGeeks (Twistys parent company) VP decided to screw over the runner up of the Treat of the Year contest and make the 5th place finisher runner up because they want to completely change Twistys into just another blah boy/girl site.
They've already shrunk updates from 3 photo sets and 2 videos a day down to 2 and 1 and the quality seems to be dropping off. They still advertise 3 and 2 updates, so they are engaging in illegal false advertising and have done so for a couple months now.
If you're thinking of joining Twistys for hot models in glamor style solo and girl/girl shoots, well that may only be historical content going forward. The slimeball VP who is now in charge is determined to change the site into generic boy/girl site so don't expect a lot of new traditional Twistys content going forward. These slimeballs also run Brazzers and other sites and have ZERO respect for customers, models and everyone who works for them.
Twistys, (but soon to be not as we currently know it?)
Well it would appear that Mindgeek has decided to make some (dodgy) moves with Twistys.
This all started with the leaking of the TOTY winners followed by the revelation that the runner up was not going on the TOTY trip (replaced by one of the other contestants) as in previous years (and the further developments that this had been mandated by parent company management).
This all caused an uproar on the forums which then resulted in the link to the forums being taken away from the members site. Since this has happened, the manager of the site who took over in the running from Shap after it sold has left (fired?).
This is all addition to the various site malarky that has occured recently:
- the drop in updates (yet they still advertise 3 galleries and 2 videos a day)
- the removal of advance search
- the replacement of their entire photo retouching team
There are rumours that they will no longer be shooting solo-only models. Shap has even popped up on the forums wondering what the hell is going on...
I joined here on a whim, due to the very good TBP price. It's nothing revolutionary, but it's a solid site with lots of content - my review to follow. But for such a big, high-profile site, the members area is a little disappointing. Page loads are slow and there are frequent errors when loading pages (sometimes have to load 2-3 times to get a page to work).
As noted in a recent review, the advanced search - which is essential for a site of this size - is AWOL, so just paging through the models is the best way to browse. And although you can add photographers as favourites, there doesn't seem to be a way to click through and see all their material.
Granted it's a bit churlish to complain for the price! But a site like this should be more on top of this stuff...
I generally research before I join a site, so I know what I'm getting into. So I knew before joining Twistys that I was going to a site that is primarily a photo and solo site with some hardcore videos thrown in as well. And for the most part that's been true. But I must admit that I was really pleasantly surprised when I started looking at their older video content and started finding hardcore videos that have to be from around the start of the last decade (technically, these scenes were probably made earlier than the earliest updates to the site). It has honestly been the best thing about my membership so far, since I'm not really much of a picture guy.
