Why I removed all my content from Kinkbomb and why they suck

shady shady shady
I’ve been selling my content on Kinkbomb for over a year. For those of you who don’t know who they are they are a fairly new clip site  with “offices” based out of Las Vegas. They call themselves “Kinkbomb Media Group” But I’m pretty sure it’s about 4 people. I’ve had personal contact with 3 of them. A nameless, Customer service rep, A tech support guy and the President who’s said his name was Joshua.

When I registered to sell content with them there were only a handful of store up and operational and it was easy for me to quickly become a top content provider. I spent 3 solid months of driving traffic, adding links and promoting my content on their site. Kinkbomb takes 40% of my sales and for that they process the transactions, host the content and provide traffic or what I like to call “eyeballs” The more people who see your stuff the more likely you will make sales. I give up 40% of my earnings for those services. After 3 months I didn’t see my sales increase by much, they hovered in the barely getting a check range and I decided to put my efforts into my other clip stores. Especially after getting my analytics results and doing some analysis. I was driving a hefty portion of my traffic, in fact I was driving most of it. So Kinkbomb was making 40% of my sales for payment processing and hosting my content for sale. That for those of you who don’t know is outrageous. If Kinkbomb was providing traffic and i was still not making any increasing sales well, that’s on me. Kinkbomb was not bringing eyeballs to the table so i basically did the bare minimum moving forward and put my efforts into marketing and promoting my stores other sites.

Flash ahead to a few months ago when Kinkbomb servers failed. Almost all my content was lost, how did I find out about this huge problem? I stopped making sales and spent some time asking around until I found out that Kinkbomb had a huge server failing and that many stores were effected. I went from being the number 3 or 4 content provider to being off the list. Kinkbbomb eventually sent out a mass email to its stores informing them that their content might be affected with a promise that eventually it would be fixed to be patient etc, etc… Not an email telling me directly how I was effected and what steps they were taking and what steps I would need to take to correct or compensate for the issue. I had to follow up with that after several days of Kinkbomb tweets asking for their stores patience and some emails informing that it would be rectified soon.

It wasn’t, most of my content was lost. It needed to be uploaded again, descriptions added, pricing information added, keywords added, animated gifs added, it was a mess. KB’s tech guy was helpful and i mass uploaded all the content I had easily accessible since most was on back up drives and needed to be searched out. I spent a fair amount of time uploading my content to which KB told me they could eternally reinstate the other info. Yay! Only it was bullshit i found that out a month later when all my best selling content, my hypnosis mp3s were in the server but not listed for sale. I had to by hand add those to my store for sale. So much for kinkbomb doing the linking. How did I find that out… no sales, then investigation. Which was becoming a pattern for Kinkbomb

Okay I get it shit happens and it was a huge pain in the ass and Kinkbomb handled the situation really badly. A sever melt down is a huge deal and causes work for everyone. Kinkbomb’s lack of personal attention and having what appeared to be a piece mail solution thrown together only as needs arose and studios complained and as after thoughts didn’t help. But I was able to get a quarter of my content back up for sale and put Kinkbomb out of my mind and got to work on other sites and life was almost back to normal with them…

Then the unthinkable happened…

I got an email informing me that Kinkbomb had over paid me due to an accounting error on their part and a “new” accounting system they went on to say they would be docking my current drop. They gave me blanket numbers and did not provide any documentation. A day later my deposit was docked. I then did my own accounting based on my sales emails and found sadly, not to my surprise that my numbers and Kinkbomb’s numbers did not match. I provided Kinkbomb with this information including transaction numbers and asked that the difference be direct deposited to me that day.

Email one: Customer service then told me that 3 of my sales were “incomplete” sales and that the “system” had sent out the emails too soon.That glitch was being corrected.

Email two: Customer service then said that according to “finance” 2 of those sales were charge backs and that one was just refunded no reason given.

That’s when I saw red. Let me be clear we are NOT talking about a lot of money were talking a few bucks. I responded requesting documentation of the two charge backs and a reason for the third and i asked a lot of questions. If in fact the sales were charge backs why did they say they were incomplete sales? what steps were they taking to block the buyer? What investigation was done for these charge backs? how could a trust them with so much conflicting information? and so on and so on. I was not a happy camper and i felt like kinkbomb was being either shady or plain old  incompetent and i let that be known.

Email three from the president of Kinkbomb media: giving me a “charge back” lesson explaining to me what a charge back was and the general process with no information pertaining to my specific “charge backs”  NO answer to any of my questions and none of the supporting data I asked for. I had explained to kinkbomb in my previous email that they have used up their  good will and that i could no longer excuse their business practice they needed to provide me proof of the situation. The email i received from the president of kinkbomb was condescending in tone,  especially where he got to the part where he touted Kinkkbomb as being “tops” in the industry “bar none” he had the balls to tell me that after their server melted down, after they docked my deposits before even letting me know there was a possible issue, with bringing under 500 eyeballs to my store a month  and with extreme lack of customer relations or service. Really that’s tops? No one does better then that?  Well color me fucking surprised.

I wrote back asking the president of Kinkbomb media if he would be the one answering my questions from now on and if i would be getting the charge back documentation from him personally and i have not heard back from kinkbomb media since. Radio silence. well I get the mass emails where they tout their lame as fuck contest where they try to get the studios to promote heavier to win something lame so they don’t have to buy any actual advertising. Yeah, i got those but nothing from the president who thought it important enough to inform me what a charge back was but not important enough to actually answer my questions.

In my frustration I thought to myself how stupd can they be? Then it dawned on me its not that Kinkbomb is stupid (shady maybe) it’s that Kinkbomb thinks I’M stupid and they have been acting accordingly.  Great way to do business Kinkbomb. So I removed my content of f their servers but left my store up because IM STILL WAITING for my documentation of those supposed charge backs and I’m still waiting for a reason for the third refund and while I wait I’m not comfortable making any amount of money for Kinkbomb Media and since they have shown that they are untrustworthy I thought it better to just remove the content pending the answers I need to feel comfortable doing business with them.

I have a feeling i’ll be waiting forever, so be it as long as they can ignore me is as long as i can tell people my personal experience with them and that’s what i intend to do. People can make up their own minds and if they decide to do business with them they can take their own measures to safeguard that they aren’t being for lack of a better term ripped off.

Maybe kinkbomb should have checked me out that not unlike some of the other studios who have left them because they were unhappy with Kinkbomb that I may be a low money maker with them but my mouth is tenfold and if you wrong me I will make sure everyone knows about it …. until you make it right or when hell freezes over which ever comes first.

Living East

Im here!
I’m not homesick at all, I thought maybe i would be but it turns out so far I’m free and clear of that special emotion. Ive moved to Washington DC and i promptly got sick. Aww stress how you like to fuck with me. Even though this move was planned for months and i was well prepared, i tend t deal with stress in a very specific way. My body revolts. From my stress triggered complex and simple partial seizure disorder to the flu. When ever the big life changing event is over so is my bodies ability to adhere to it and i spend a few days in bed being sick as a dog. This move was no different.

I’m on the mend and looking forward to new adventures on the east coast. There is much to do to get my life in east coast order. I need to design and put together my new shoot room and get myself to the task of making clips and mp3s. As well as digging out a commercial DC metro area dungeon to rent on a per session basis also I need to hang my photographer shingle out in my new town and get some hot gils in front of my lens. All in due time, I’m in no hurry, I’m blessed with a partner who has no issues in letting me work it all out at my own pace and is always super supportive of what it is i do. I am, by any stretch of the imagination….a very lucky girl.

 

Femdom Hypnosis It’s all the rage

Listen and obey
I fell into it but I took to it like a duck to water and by that i mean it looks all easy peasy from the surface but underneath I’m paddling like hell to keep myself moving forward. I am a hypno domme, i will mesmerize you into doing all the nasty dirty things you really wanna do but are to fucking scared to just do. I give you permission, I let you think I’m “forcing”  hey I’m a fetish freak, I get it and I’m happy to help you in your journey of self discovery or self repression or what ever it is that tickles your dangly pickle. Call me a fetish conduit because I suppose thats what I am.

One of my peddling beneath the surface efforts was to launch my own site where I controlled the content. I already sell my fetish content on other sites and i will continue to do so. I love some of them like a fat kid loves yummy, yummy cake so in no way will I be yanking anything and really who doesn’t want their content reaching out to different audiences with other people promoting it. For me that’s a no brainier, the more it’s available the more it will sell. I’ve launched my own femdom hypnosis themed site because I’m a greedy control freak bitch and I want more of the cash for my hard work and I want more of the control. Call me crazy but that’s how I roll.

When I conceived of this femdom hypnosis web site I had a different idea in mind and I also hired a web design company to put it together for me. They of course sucked giant donkey balls and never did squat and had to issue me a refund for their lame incompetence. (Write me ladies I’ll tell you who) So after months of not having a site in play and way behind schedule I was put in a position to design and put up my own site.. which i did. In a day. Granted it was a long ass day and half if it was spent with me pulling my long luxurious sexy red hot streaked hair out because I had a lot to figure out but i got the job done and it looks… fucking amazing. It’s all hypno spooky and as things stand right now I have 90% of my content available uploaded for sale and it is selling. Less then a month and I’m in the black. Now a lot of that is because I invested my time and not my cash in this project so being in the black came easier then expected.

The next step is SEO, that’s right i need to learn a few things about getting my site out in front of the people who would be interested in my special band of fetish content. I’ve done a fair amount in the past with hooker sites and blogs and (some real world seo work, yeah i do that too)  but this is e-commerce so i do have things to learn and learn i will. I’ll attack this how i attack everything else with vigor, passion, and lots of book reading … until the site brings in the monthly nut I want and I get bored and move on to the next bring shiny thing. Yes, that’s right i’m not only  a control freak but im a control freak who needs constant outside stimulation… which is likely one of the reasons I became a hooker in the first place.

I thrive on variety

Use a strap-on go to jail

Enough about me …
Pssst Dommes fucking a guy with a strap-on in exchange for cash is prostitution. So maybe you’d like to think about not  judging prostitutes who exchanging sex for money. If you strap on a cock and give it to a man up the ass and he pays you for that service, that’s exchanging sex for money. Just because you’re not being sexually satisfied and catering to someone else needs doesn’t mean it’s not prostitution. It is. Do you really think that escorts, hookers, call girls whatever you wanna label the illegal sex work of exchanging money for sex are getting off and being sexually fulfilled in every appointment or do you think they are doing a job in exchange for cash? Yanno just like you are.

Having my feet in both worlds i have felt the scorn from fellow Dommes when they realize I play both sides of the fence. I have been the one who gets starred down when a Domme on a panel pontificates on how SHE’S not a prostitute in a lame attempt to shame me.  Lots of Dommes don’t like to be called sex workers for the same reason a lot of strippers dont like to be called sex workers. They think it means prostitute. Which it doesn’t. Instead of embracing the term and showing the masses all the flavors of the sex worker rainbow, Dommes distance themselves when in fact so many of them engage in activities that are flat out prostitution. Fucking a man in the ass with a strap on if he pays you to do it… not a gray area.

I know many of you think this is obvious and there’s no reason for me to bring it up but its not. Dommes get arrested all the time for solicitation for exactly that activity or rather agreeing to that activity. Why? It’s prostitution and that’s illegal and the sooner this is accepted then the sooner the Pro Domme community can protect themselves and keep their rubber glad asses out of the slammer. I wish the Pro Domme community would be a little more accepting of the escort community. There is much to learn from escorts in this regards. Part of an escorts job is staying out of jail and many work to keep they whole community safe by being reference friendly and sharing info on safety. Its really become normal to work to keep others safe in the escort community. I know Dommes are alpha chicks and a lot of that energy is ” I know it all, I am supreme” but jail for breaking the law is real and if you want to avoid you being the one cuffed (and not for your pleasure) maybe think about being less judgey with the escort crowd and be a little more inclusive. If only because in the end its good for you and will help to keep you safe.
