    Anybody have any experience/recommendations about places to rent DVDs by mail? Back in olden times I used to rent gay porn (on VHS tape) from an outfit called PM Productions in NYC but they went bust. More recently I've been doing biz with Gay Adult DVD Rentals - rent or buy gay XXX DVDs at nymMEDIA which has an all gay male catalogue. Good selection but way slow and way expensive, but my expectations may be skewed because I also belong to Netflix which is much cheaper and much faster to turn rentals around.

    To be fair, Netflix has a distribution center in my area so it's to be expected that they would be pretty fast vs, a company several states away. And Netflix has a horizontal (mass) market vs. a vertical (specialty) market which means Netflix can offer more for less and still make money. Capitalism = good, profit = good.

    Not trying to emphasize gay porn but would be interested to hear if anyone has any experience with other Netflix-like porn DVD rental outfits that offer fast turnaround and relatively decent prices. I have a couple of "straight" (cough cough nudge nudge wink wink) buds who like pussy porn for motivational purposes, so I'm looking for a good deal and good variety.

    Hmm, havent heard of adult netflix-like services.
    But don't you think that instead of going for a membership, getting high speed internet might be a better option?

    The amount of websites with adult content is staggering, you'd have more privacy and could just store your favorites on your computer.

    Your mailman will know what type of video you are receiving. We know all the return P.O. Box numbers by heart.

    My mail man is a not very attractive mail lady, bless her heart. I don't much care what she thinks. Now the UPS guys who bring me shit from Amazon, that's another story.

    She may tell the ugly old men on the route. You'll get lots of invites for lunch.

    I too, was a member of NYMedia. Is was way slow, so I let my membership go. I was also a member of urentdvd.com in California. Turn around was twice as fast and I'm in Maryland. Give it a shot-both gay and straight.

    A few years ago, I had a subscription to Bush DVD (not affiliated with the president) for a time. As I recall, the rates and the selection were good, and I had no complaints about the speed of delivery. I don't know if they have a gay division, though.

    Just a quick tip. People should be aware that most of these places are located in Cali and ONLY Cali. Therefore, if you live closer to the East Coast, it will take frustratingly long for the dvds to arrive. (Blame the hideous USPS.) Check the FAQ of all of these sites and see if they have 2 coastal shipping facilities to accomodate you. (Wanted List is in Cali and NJ.)

    A couple years ago I used dvddon.com its lik an adult netflix. They had a decent selection of straight videos, I dont know how theyre selection of gay porn is tho. It wasnt much more expensive than netiflix but as I remember it did take longer, but not a crazy amount of time. And I believe that you can request for them to get dvds that you are interested in.

    The best out there is NYM. They carry a lot of titles that most do not and often they get them in stock around the same time they are released. Most online rental companies make you wait months. Plus if there are movies that you want and they don't carry them, you can request them.

    NYM also ships out from more than one distribution center. That may not have been the case when you last had your membership (to member Visualalert).

    I would give them a try again because you will have a hard time finding a selection of gay movies that is any better than what they carry. I had a membership with almost all of the online companies except about two and none of them could touch NYM. But you are right the service is a little expensive. But consider that they don't carry many of the cheap compilation flicks and horrible Bacchus films. They carry a lot of the top notch stuff like Titan Media films, Raging Stallion, Falcon, etc and a large number of foreign flicks. Many of those titles cost $59 or more. You get what you pay for.

    As turnaround time goes it usually takes about 2 days for me to get my next movie. If they get it on a Tuesday for example I usually have my next movie on Friday. I live on the east coast. I had the one at a time membership and it was a little slow waiting for the next DVD. But I moved up to the two at a time and it is much better. If you don't like waiting I would try the two at time. While you are waiting for them to receive one, you will already have one at home.

    I have never received a DVD from NYM that was broken or excessively scratched and unplayable. That was a big problem with a couple of the other companies I tried.

    I wanted to update this thread with my recent experiences with Wanted List, which have been CRAP!

    I'm sure Netflix users are aware of the term THROTTLING. Well, I'm being throttled by Wanted List now. I'm on the 3 AT A TIME UNLIMITED plan, yet they have stopped sending dvds as they should. I have contacted the BBB Online, as well as my Attorney General's office for advice on how to proceed with further complaints, as their advertising of offering UNLIMITED dvds is fraudulent.

    I use to use a company (forgot the name now) that had a great selection of gay titles to rent. No problems at first but then I kept getting reminder notices for two that I had never received. They supposedly were shipped out. I kept writing and telling them they must have been lost in the mail. Finally, under mutual agreement, my account was closed.
    I wish I could think of their name.
