As used in these Terms and Conditions, “Content” shall mean any image, video, sound, text, email, or any other type of file or media which is publicly viewable on our website. The only persons who may upload Content onto our website are verified Content providers.
Our performers are verified Content providers because they have been approved by us after our robust process for verifying the age and identity of every performer. This includes the review and validation of their government-issued picture identification card and steps to ensure their government-issued picture identification card is in the possession of and belongs to them. We use a number of tools to validate government-issued picture identification cards, including we use a third-party vendor that specializes in the validation of government identifications. Our approved performers may upload Content onto our website, which Content would be viewable or accessible on the performer’s Bio Page. We will review any such Content before it is published on our website. If our review indicates any of the Content is illegal or violates the Standards, then we will block the Content from being published on our website.
Our robust age verification process is required for us to be in compliance with the age verification requirements of United States federal law stated in 18 U.S.C. §§ 2257 and 2257A et seq. (“Section 2257”). As required by Section 2257, we maintain and store records of all images, videos, and performances, in whatever medium is required. In providing real-time or live video streaming services, we operate on a platform that we are able to fully control and that allows for real-time monitoring and the removal of the Content being streamed. To ensure compliance with the Standards, we conduct live monitoring of broadcasters during performances, including a broadcaster verification step at the beginning of each stream and periodically throughout the stream to further validate that the performer(s) has been approved by us. By using our Services, you are fully consenting to us conducting such live monitoring and verification steps and our maintaining and storing of the records required by Section 2257.
You shall not record, copy, make a video of, or in any way reproduce any of the Content appearing on our website, including but not limited to any part or portion of a live performance.

We charge NO fees for unlimited and unrestricted access to our website's free picture archives, free live guest chat rooms, free profiles, and all other free Members-only services. If access to pay live video chat rooms requires an additional fee, the amount of any such fee will be prominently disclosed to you prior to entering the pay chat room. Paid chat room fees are solely at the discretion and control of the performer. No charge or transfer will be made to your credit card or related to your alternative payment method without your authorization by accessing the Pay Per Minute areas on your Membership account or authorizing a premium Membership. A premium Membership is a membership that enables you to access services beyond per minute chat or free Members-only services, such as videos or Club Membership. The amount and possible recurrence of all premium Membership fees will be clearly disclosed to you.
By entering the clearly marked Pay Per Minute areas, you authorize us to make a charge or transfer related to your billing method, of the posted rate, as well as any taxes and service charges that may apply. Credit card users and certain debit card users will be charged $2.00 USD or an amount equal to the first full minute, whichever is greater, upon entering these areas. This nominal amount is automatically refunded to you in the form of a credit to your account once you purchase any premium services. For billing inquiries, or to request a detailed statement of your usage, you may email [email protected].
You may also choose to make purchases by use of "GOLD." GOLD is a site currency that you can send to a performer in addition to a performer's per minute chat rate. One GOLD is equal to $1.00 USD. The amount of GOLD given will be added to any streaming charges incurred and billed in the same manner. Should your first purchase be to send GOLD, the total GOLD amount will be billed immediately and only be sent to the performer upon a successful collection. The use of GOLD is completely voluntary and is not required.
There is no fee for basic Membership of our website. However, a nominal onetime authorization may be applied to your credit or debit card upon initial enrollment, which we use to confirm the integrity of your account information. This authorization is typically $2.00 USD, but may vary depending on your payment method or billing currency. The authorization may show on your statement for a few days, but it will expire within 7 to14 days and then the entire amount of the authorization will be refunded to your credit or debit card.
Some alternative billing methods do not involve this nominal credit card authorization. In some situations, if you decide to enter a fee-based or premium area of the site, however, you must then upgrade to a full membership. At that time, we may apply a similar nominal charge not to exceed $5.00 USD, or an amount of your choosing. The nominal amount will always be prominently disclosed. This nominal amount is automatically refunded to you in the form of a credit to your Member account, and it is credited toward the cost of any premium services you purchase.
Premium Memberships have a published prevailing rate. These fees are prominently disclosed to you prior to your authorization of the Membership charge and its recurrence. Many premium Memberships are time based and therefore a recurring charge is incurred by the Member. An authorization of a premium Membership provides you with the specified timeframe of access to premium services. An example of a specified timeframe is a 30 day recurring premium Membership. Upon signing up for a premium Membership, you are provided 30 days of access to the premium services. If you choose to cancel the recurrence of the premium Membership renewal, your Membership will expire at the end of the initial 30 day period. Premium Memberships are listed in your My Account area of our website and cancellation can be facilitated from that page.
We set a daily spending limit for our Members. This daily limit is a rolling 12-hour limit of charges you may incur. We set this limit in our sole discretion. You can request an increase to your daily limit by contacting [email protected].
You agree that we may, in our sole discretion, accumulate charges incurred during your billing cycle and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle. This means that accumulated charges may appear on the statement you receive from your bank, card issuer, or other payment source. Further, you agree that we may delay obtaining authorization from your bank, card issuer, or other payment source until submission of the accumulated charges, which delay will be chosen by us in our sole discretion. You acknowledge that, if you want to see the components of accumulated charges, you may do so by emailing [email protected].
If you are paying dollar-based fees in a currency other than U.S. dollars, your bank or financial institution may impose fees for currency exchange and for international transactions. For example, Visa and MasterCard typically charge a 1% processing fee on international transactions and most card-issuing banks add their own small additional fees, generally a percentage of your overall purchase price. Similar considerations apply when there is a difference between the currency in which fees are quoted on our website and the currency in which you make your actual payment. In some situations, we might be able to change your billing currency. To inquire about this, contact [email protected].
The Washington State sales tax on video and club Membership purchases is included in all published prices. No additional Washington State sales tax will be added to published prices on these purchases.
You are responsible for all charges associated with connecting to our website and all amounts owed to your internet service provider. You agree that all such charges incurred by you are entirely your responsibility. For example, depending on your particular location and chosen internet service provider, you may be responsible for long distance charges and/or other communication surcharges.
Funds transferred to your account, as well as discounts and promotional pricing associated with your account, will expire as applicable, except where prohibited by applicable laws. We reserve the right to set the expiration date of these items in our sole discretion. Rewards are issued to Members in our sole discretion. Rewards have no cash value and cannot be traded or used as legal tender.
If we do not receive payment via your payment method for your use of our Services, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by us. Each time you use our Services, you agree and reaffirm that we are authorized to charge or make a transfer related to your billing method. If we do not receive the full amount of your account balance within thirty (30) days of the invoice date, an additional 1.5% (or the highest amount allowed by law, whichever is lower) per month late charge may be added to your bill and immediately become due and payable, in our sole discretion. You shall be liable for all attorney fees and collection fees arising from our efforts to collect any past due and unpaid balance of your account.
You agree to be billed for and to pay any outstanding balance in the event of cancellation or termination of your account. Unless you notify us of any discrepancies within thirty (30) days after they first appear on your account statement, they will be deemed acceptable by you for all purposes, including resolution of inquiries made by your card issuer or bank. You release us and all our representatives from all liabilities and claims of loss resulting from any error or discrepancy that is not reported to us within thirty (30) days of its publication.
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT, AT ANY TIME, TO CHANGE OUR FEES AND BILLING METHODS, INCLUDING THE ADDITION OF SUPPLEMENTAL FEES OR SEPARATE CHARGES FOR ONLINE AREAS, CONTENT, PREMIUM MEMBERSHIPS, OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY US OR OUR AFFILIATES. WE MAY ALSO ELECT, IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION, TO PROVIDE NOTICE OF BILLING CHARGES THROUGH POP-UPS; EMAIL; MEMBER INBOX ON SITE; U.S. MAIL TO THE ACCOUNT HOLDER; OR BY ANY OTHER MEANS DEEMED REASONABLE BY US. If any such change is unacceptable to you, you may terminate your Membership as provided below. Your continued use of our website following the effective date of any such change shall constitute your acceptance of any such change.
All sales are final. We have a "no refunds" policy. In our sole discretion and in extraordinary circumstances, we may provide credits in the form of free time or provide discounts in the event you experience technical difficulties that you demonstrate to have made a sincere effort to resolve. We do not provide cash refunds, unless we determine in our sole discretion that extraordinary circumstances apply. Discount rates posted on our website can be changed in our sole discretion and without prior notice by us to you. Any such discount will be based on the rates posted on our website at the time of purchase.
We reserve the right to terminate your Membership at any time for any reason in our sole discretion. This includes but is not limited to we have the right to deny service for accounts and users which in our sole discretion are deemed to be fraudulent or otherwise high risk accounts. We also reserve in our sole discretion the right to report to and cooperate with law enforcement agencies with respect to any claims of potential fraud.
You also may terminate your Membership at any time, subject to your continuing duty to pay all charges incurred by you. You agree this is your sole remedy with respect to any dissatisfaction with us, including but not limited to your dissatisfaction with our Terms and Conditions, any Content available on our website, any amount or type of fees or charges, or our billing practices. You can terminate your Membership by delivering notice to our Customer Service Department by sending an email to [email protected]. To ensure effective cancellation, please provide your log-in name, your full name, and the last 4 digits of your credit or debit card number (or the full account number associated with your alternative payment method).
In the event your account is terminated or canceled, no refund (including but not limited to any Membership fees) will be granted and no online time or other credits will be credited to you or can be converted to other form of reimbursement. Any delinquent or unpaid accounts with unresolved issues with our Customer Service Department or any of our other departments must be fully paid or otherwise resolved before you may re-register with our website. Members using multiple accounts without prior express written permission from us shall have their Membership terminated.
