you’ll sometimes see this used in reviews to denote “one time charge” – a site that offers a single month (or other term) access without automatically renewing/billing you.

POV

point-of-view. Lots of times you’ll see this in reviews when we’re describing content that was shot by the person engaged in the sex act – you know the type I’m talking about, like a blowjob video or photo set all shot by the guy getting the blowjob.

recurring

adult paysites that automatically bill you for whatever time amount the subscription is. Most adult sites are recurring billing, it’s an exception when they aren’t. See our consumer tips section for info on how to make sure you can cancel, and what to do if you have a hard time.

slash fiction

Definition from Wikipedia: fan fiction, describing gay pairings between media characters, often in explicit detail, and very frequently outside the canon of the source. The name arises from the use of the slash character in phrases such as ‘Kirk/Spock’ to describe the stories. (’Kirk/Spock’ is widely thought to be the first type of slash fiction, first appearing in the 1970s in Star Trek fanzines.)

WMV
