A Little Something for the Amateur Porn Fans Out There

summer amateurThe one thing that by its very nature cannot be done well by the mainstream porn establishment is real amateur content. I like Amateur District, but I consider it pro-am if anything. The problem is that most real amateur sites – free and paid – are crappy. The quality sucks, the sites are a mess, and let’s be honest, the girls are not all that attractive.

I meet people who run other porn sites at conventions all the time. A little while back, I met a guy from LifestyleAmateurs.com who told me that their site was the real deal. Real women who have their own little sites that they post pictures and videos of themselves on. He gave me his card and a free password, so I checked it out when I got home (as I do with most free porn people are nice enough to give me).

Compared to VideoBox, I tend to think that most sites are okay at best. Lifestyle Amateurs is no VideoBox (and to be fair, it’s not trying to be), but I thought it was well-organized and had a nice selection of cute girls. The part I liked the most is that the girls will do fan requests and talk to members via email. They’re real people and that’s what good amateur porn is all about.

On Tuesday, my new friend dropped me a line asking what I thought of the site. I told him essentially what I just told you and he offered to give free 2-week memberships to any VB members who wanted them (I guess he appreciated the feedback).

So if you want to check Lifestyle Amateurs out for free, email them at support@lifestyleamateurs.com. The subject should say “free membership” and tell them Alison at VideoBox sent you.

    Alison:

    who is Alison? thanks hon. we all luvs ya. i will check that site out. but you should give yourself credit for being a big reason for VB’s success. i miss the good ole days when you were marketing manager at VB but there are times i guess when we all make changes. But if you ever decide to come back as marketing manager i for one would welcome back you with open arms. you have 2 main qualities i admire especially and those are your sincerity and your fairness.
    Anyway thanks for letting us know about the 2 weeks free membership offer at the site you mentioned. all the free flattery you gonna get girl,the rest you gotta pay for dearly

    Due to the overwhelming popularity of this offer we would ask that you register at http://lifestyleamateurs.com/videobox/ to receive your free trial membership.

    Thanks,

    @ LifestyleAmateurs.com – Are you sure you’re gathering enough personal information in the registration process for the “free” two week trial subscription? Quite a bit different from the “just drop them an email” promise of the post. Free isn’t only measured in money. Thanks for the offer, but I’m passing.

  8. HotScooter2 Says:

    @ Lifestyleamateurs.com:

    i don’t understand why we need to register and enter personal info as one does when they pay for membership with a credit card. alison said nice things about your site,and in return you offered free membership for 2 weeks to all VB members wanting it. you knew VB was a huge site when you made the offer. And now one day later you have already changed the format,because of the overwhelming response.you should have already known that VB has largest membership for an adult site in the world . i don’t know if i am comfortable filling out personal info ,or later joining the
    complete site at a very high price of $39.95 a month.
    like Rope i think i will pass up.
    And BTW on the lighter side my browser not only accepts cookies,it eats them every days.especially chocolate chip.
    And finally Alison still rocks,and still a whole lot cuter than rope. no i have not seen him in a skirt and not sure i want to either. no offense my friend

    @ropeadope -
    There are legal concerns involved with any membership to an adult site. When you registered for membership on VB you also agreed to their Terms of Service and were required to enter a credit card. For this free membership offer we didn’t require a credit card but still require that you agree to our Terms of Service and provide subscriber information as we do for all memberships. You are completely free to choose whether or not you want to become a member or not.

    @HotScooter2
    We didn’t change anything… if you register you are provided a 2 week free membership without providing credit card information or being charged. We do not share your personal information with anyone. All members provide this same information. VB asks for the same information when you join as a member as almost all adult membership sites do. It is your choice as to whether or not you register. As far as price, I agree that VB is a great bargain for the price they charge… LifestyleAmateurs.com is a completely different type of program and at $39.95 a member pays $1.33/day and can interact with the models, download pictures sets or videos as well as request custom shoots. I think it is a very fair price and any member receives alot of value from the models for what they pay. I also wanted to point out that a member can join a single models paysite for only $14.95/month and still receive access to our bonus site that has 17 hours of video and 40+ photo sets.

    @ LifestyleAmateurs.com – Thank you for the reply, but your response completely fails to address my area of concern. I wrote four brief sentences. Do you see anything within those four sentences where I’m questioning the need to agree with your Terms of Service? I have no problem with that.

    Let me try again.

    Alison’s post states the method to obtain the free trial is to send an email with the words “free membership” in the subject line, and to reference Alison from VideoBox in the body of the email. Are you now indicating that individuals who utilized this procedure were required to disclose their full name, complete street address including city, state, zip code and country, and telephone number? All are required fields on your registration form. If so, then I agree you changed nothing. If not, then you changed everything.

    Maybe someone who snagged the free trial via the email scenario can let me know?

  11. LifestyleAmateurs.com Says:

    @ropeadope
    Alison posted that you should email us… and if you email us we send you a link to the form for registration. I just opted to post the url here to save time instead of having to respond to every email. Granted… we did not coordinate this offer very well with VB as I didn’t have the form ready when Alison made the post but we are not forcing anyone to subscribe. It is your choice as to whether you subscribe or not. I appreciate your concern and it is noted. 33 other people have not shared your concern and are now enjoying free memberships.

  12. ropeadope Says:

    @ LifestyleAmateurs.com – Thank you for the clarification of this point. I was not aware the email request specified in the post resulted in a link to the registration form. Yes, I realize you are not forcing anyone to subscribe, lol. I withdraw my concern and wish you well.

  13. LifestyleAmateurs.com Says:

    @ropeadope – np… sorry for the confusion. :)

  14. howardz Says:

    I’m in the same boat. I love amateur stuff, but I don’t want to fill in all of those details for a trial.

    I’d rather have an anonymous 3 day trial so I can poke around the site and see if it’s worth subscribing to, rather than providing all of my info.

  15. LifestyleAmateurs.com Says:

    Just for clarification – Although I have described these memberships as trials they are not really trials… they are full network memberships with a period of 2 weeks before expiration. They do not require billing or anything of the sort…

  16. HotScooter2 Says:

    @LifestyleAmateurs.com:

    i do have to admire the fact that you did address All the issues we presented,and on the weekend too. i appreciate your clarifying your position

  17. wcfields Says:

    In This Thread: People who should know better thinking they will get something for free on the internet that will not leave them spammed until ten years after their funeral.

  18. LifestyleAmateurs.com Says:

    @wcfields – Noone will get spammed… we don’t spam people or share your email address with anyone.

  19. Juanxyzzy Says:

    Gee, with a title like that I expected Alison’s amateur porn :(

  20. robert Says:

    Sucks 1 in 10 videos is actually “real amateur” porn!

  21. LifestyleAmateurs.com Says:

    @robert – There are 17 hours of all kinds of different videos in our bonus section (99 videos) and there are currently 124 videos uploaded by the models that are indeed real amateurs. So your ratio is a little off. :)

  22. HotScooter2 Says:

    you know all of us have been extremely ungrateful and ungratious. and ii am including myself when i make this remark.Lifestyle Amateurs was generous enough to offer a 2 week free membership available to all VB members reading this blog,and Alison had a lot to do with them making the offer. Have any of us taken a minute of our time to thank both Lifestyle amateurs and Alison. well let me be the first to do so.
    Thankyou to both Lifestyle amateurs and Alison.
    This whole thing reminds me of a friend inviting me over to dinner,and all i do is tell his wife how lousy the meal is Do you think he will be in any hurry to ask me over again?
    I wouldn’t blame Alison if she never told us about any other promotions like this again. She is too sweet a person to say anything,but i feel we have really put her in a spot. She did us a favor to tell us about the offer and all we did was give her a big kick in the ass for her efforts. for my participation in this whole thing i owe both Alison and lifestyle amateurs a big apology

  23. LifestyleAmateurs.com Says:

    @HotScooter2 – An apology is not necessary but graciously accepted. If you want the honest truth of the matter… we are accustomed to people having a sense of entitlement or a sense of wariness about the motives of others. It is a symptom of our societies due to the large number of companies that have predatory habits. We have been long time affiliates of VideoBox (http://www.adultreviews.net/review/dvd-archive/videobox-4th-revisit.html) and count them as one of the most honest companies in the industry… but we are well aware of many others that do not treat their customers with respect and consideration. VideoBox is the highest ranked paysite on our review site for a reason and we can only hope that we develop Lifestyle Amateurs to the same level.

    I saw that you had signed up on Lifestyle Amateurs. What are your impressions of our site?

  24. HotScooter2 Says:

    @LifestyleAmateurs.com:

    After briefly looking at the site last night, i feel you are what you say you are and that is an amateur site. the models are not porn stars pretending to be amateurs. the quality of videos varies from very good to pretty poor,but then again any of the pro sites have the same problem. Many of the pros have terrible photographers. this site has pretty much the same strengths and weaknesses as any other amateur site. And from glancing at the bonus contents it also seems to be at least a high percent if not all amateur. They seem to be what they claim.
    i have not yet tried contacting any of the models,but there is a little mail symbol next to each model.this allows members to contact any of these models via email and they should respond back

  25. ippo1982 Says:

    For some reason, the site runs really slow when using the Opera Browser. Tried logging in through Google Chrome and it runs fine now.

  26. LifestyleAmateurs.com Says:

    @ippo1982 – What version are you using? I just tried it in Opera 10 and didn’t really notice any speed issues. I am sorry for the speed issues you experienced… we are working to improve performance. Our site was officially launched on August 13, 2009… so it is still pretty new.

  27. ippo1982 Says:

    @LifestyleAmateurs – It turns out that browsing the site works just fine on Opera or any browser. I discovered that when I downloaded a zip set, the pages would not load after wards. I would have to restart my browser and log back in the site and everything would be cool. I use a download manager, particularly Internet Download Manager. Does your site support download managers? and might that be the reason that the website will no longer reload after a zip set is downloaded?

  28. LifestyleAmateurs.com Says:

    Just FYI. This offer ends today at 5pm EST.
