    "No penis" setting

    Happy to announce today we went live with a new small feature, a "no penis" setting (My Account, preferences, No penis).

    If you set this to "hide penises", most of the shoots in which (real) penises appear will be disabled from your view. For example, they will not show up in searches, filters, when browsing, in the upcoming shoots panel, or in news raves.

    However, they may show in some places: on the boards if posted about, in Behind the scenes widget on the news page, in backstage image-sets, in the Special message (tagging instructional videos) on the news page, and maybe a few other random places.

    While it's not perfect, certainly the bulk of GB shoots will be filtered out, and should rarely, if ever be seen.

    If you have this set to "no penis", and see some (other than the exceptions listed above), please let us know, so we can look into it.

    Great feature, thanks for adding this! One potential bug I did notice is I am still seeing the Crystal S and Cole BG shoot in the upcoming shoots panel.

    Wonders if the other interesting bug that Frans was referring to was that Zena's models page profile picture is actually a picture of "Shae Ann & Anika" ??

    It's the profile pic of her most recent released backstage set actually (prolly from the shoot you're refer to). Have nagged HQ about that some time ago, they'll get it fixed eventually Just amused me to see it again.

    To the main AW site: http://www.abbywinters.com/members then right-top, My Account drops down to Preferences and then set the options as you wish.

    That's is indeed strange, they were gone for a while but now it has returned. I'll ask HQ to look into that.

    Thanks Frans! Noticed the same thing that you did, the shoot did go away briefly but it is back in the raves column now.

    With 'no penis' set he still sees Crystal S/Cole rave, as do I. Only affects mainpage raves and 'recent updates'. Specifically g/b shoots do NOT show on modelpages or in search (which is ok).

    Really? It did hide them from me, which confuses the heck out of me 'cos I didn't realise I had the filter on. It did take some page refreshes to get the shoot to show though, so I wonder if the reverse is true as well.

    How about making GB/Penis a separate paid for section of the site which we can opt out of and make (however small) a saving?

    I like this idea... but from what I gather (I think Garion or someone at AWHQ mentioned it somewhere) there is not enough content at the moment or/and enough new releases to sustain it's own paid section.
    What I would imagine (based on NO facts) that it would be deemed that what we are currently getting in the G/B section is additional to the 3 paid sites (along with the editors choice/mystery shoots, podcast & Girls 101) thus no discount would be given if it did split.

    I think the "No penis" setting is a very nice compromise. I do wish though that we wouldn't get the "genitalia" Preview pictures on the main page or/and on the forums... Yes, I'm on this subject again... This is for both male and female, although it seems that it has improved in the solo shoots over the last little while (excluding Dani L latest. But the G/B advert/preview pics seem to be the worst...
    Alyssa & Marcos
    Aletta & Harold
    Saskia & Leon
    Karlijn & Paul (Extreme example)
    Renae & Ben

    Looks like the upcoming Sasha R & Ollie R is going to join the extreme example.

    When it could be done more like these....
    Eliza & Sebastien
    Fenna & Svenno

    Much more passionate and loving... In my opinion, excluding these two and Maya C & Andy's plus Gina J & Steve's shoots I don't think the "males" face is shown in any others... Objectifies them slightly.
    Ok... rant over.... Now where are the girls

    Asked HQ to look into it, using the feedback pages is prolly better for such issues btw.

    Why?!?

    penis phobia?

    I am 100% hetero, but I like the BoyGirl Shoots.
    But who does not like it, it does not need to look.

    well, some of the shoots are very fun to watch, but alot of people join this site for the girl/girl content only, I don't have the "no penis" filter on myself, but it must come in handy for some members

    No, it doesn't come in handy because it doesn't (always?) work. The latest shoot is yet another example. Yes Frans, I di use the feedback thing last time - with no reponse.

    The raves for the boy-girl shoots are still showing up on the site. Would it be possible to have these filtered out of the news column?

    Confirmed and reported to HQ.

    Update: this is a known issue and being investigated.
