Slow Downloads

I can download from other sites no problem. Right now the problem is it takes 1 hour to download a 250 mb file from Kink? What gives? This is a Kink problem, not on my end.

    Slow and not completing larger files, I will add.
  • It's gotten better, but not a fast as say a week ago. Something has changed on the Kink side of things. Every other download service I use (iTunes, P2P, other adult pay for content sites) work just fine with no slow downs. Any updates from Kink?

    Same here. Hope it gets fixed soon.
  • Argh I feel bad because I just made a new discussion about this before seeing this one! Yes, I have varying speeds. Sometimes a file will be going nice and fat at 5MB/s for the entire download. Other times the download will fail, or complete and will be corrupt. So I have to download the file again only now it is hovering at 40 KB/s, then jump to 1MB/s, then slowly goes back down to 100 KB/s. Very random and definitely making it difficult to keep track of what I've collected. If only porn held all the most powerful backbones in their hands!
  • It's gone back to a 1 hour download time for me again. Just checked another porn site, I can download lightning speed there. Let me check itunes...yep good there too. What a joke, what happened Kink?
  • Same here. Just awful perf...
  • here also...image :(
  • slow downloads--choppy play.
  • where's the tech support? Is this just a bitch session?
  • Same here. Very choppy and slow, STALLING constantly then (at some undeterminable point) creeps on again. WHY ARE WE PAYING MONEY FOR THIS TECHNICAL NON-PERFORMANCE ON THIS SITE? Currently a 558 MB vid file has taken more than an 1 1/2 hours and it is still only 3/4 done.

    I'm yet another person having fits with VERY slow download performance for a kink.com site. I can browse the site (MenOnEdge) perfectly well and look at pictures with no trouble, but the videos often load and/or download at dial-up speed or slower. I'd love to know why this is happening. Is it an issue with bandwidth limits, server problems, high user volume, an attack on the site, or what?
  • I just signed up for SexandSubmission after having a subscription to FuckingMachines. FuckingMachines had lightning fast downloads. I have great internet and I can download a 2 gig hd vid in 3 minutes. SaS isnt completing a single download. Is this normal for SaS?

    Everything so slow, both download and streaming. No other site is like this. What is going on ?

    Downloads from TUF also shows variable download speeds, often dropping to <300 KB/s on many occasions. Running connection speed tests often show the problem is somewhere between Kink and the client's IPS. However, this speed throttling is non-existent during low usage hours, such as after 10:00 PST (which is also San Francisco time).
  • Apparently they are too busy fighting their OSHA fines to actually respond to their members complaints.

    The downloads/streams far too slow to be any use and nobody at the site seems interested so that will be the end of my subscriptions

    Did a quick google search on "OSHA Fines Kink" and according to latimes Kink were fined $78,000, "the main complaint related to a July 31 shoot involving actress Cameron Bay, who tested positive for HIV shortly thereafter, bringing filming in the adult industry briefly to a halt. The complaint said the production involved acts "considered high-risk for the transmission of HIV."

    Be nice if they looked after their paying members or they won't be paying much more

    Have been browsing the forums and have not seen many if any comments from the Kink staff which seems to the current customer support policy ~X(
  • same problems as above
    VERY annoying
    and a first for me on Kink.
  • Hello,
    there ist something terribly wrong on your site.
    Even in medium-Res most videos don't work online and can not be downloaded. More than a year with sexandsubmission without problems has ended. My new subscription does not work at all.
    That's Horrible.
    And still no message from you
    No information, no apologies, nothing.
    I am very annoyed
    and I read, that I am not the only one
    count

    Shall I try to get my money back?
    That would be sad.

    Hi all, if you use the support form on this page they will likely come back to you.

    Also you could try GetRight or another download manager, it's still slow but you can pause and resume by updating the download URL each time you resume
