Just like many others I have read, I was ripped off by this company. I ordered the first video off the TV for $9.95 and specifically told the lady on the phone I did not want anything else to be sent to me. To my surprise I got several more videos every month thereafter. It wasn't until I opened my bank statement (that I never read) in October, that I realized they had been charging me $23.98 every month for these stupid videos. There was never a number to call, and I did not know what to do. When I called GGW I was told that there was a disclaimer in the commercial that said I would be enrolled in the a month to month program. This is bull ish because I never heard anything. Don't let them rip you off, and let's close this company DOWN!!!!!!!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

What ARE You Buying Here?

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

When I was helping a friend research a divorce settlement and I saw that the worst of the dispute centered on who was going to get the complete series of "Girls Gone Wild." I had to find out what it was.

Now I wish I hadn't wasted my time.

You have college-aged, young and dumb, who apparently never learned the proper way to act in public, of questionable morals, and they are usually someplace where  alcohol and/ or drugs combine with scanty clothes and you have some Hugh Hefner- Robert Guccione wannabe types out lurking to prey on young and dumb females with  video cameras, a contract to sign if these young women will expose themselves to their lenses and maybe even get it on with another young woman as stupid and and stoned..

I admit I have never watched one of these soft porn videos through as the trailers were enough for me. But the general idea is SEXPLOITATION of women who should have never been permitted out of the house by themselves much less to a Spring Break or nude beach or wherever the predators with the vidcams found them.

The more videos sold will only encourage these slicksters to make more of them.

Who cares how much these videos cost?

A good businessperson is going to get as much for their product as they can!

What is more of a concern is what are these young ladies husbands and children going to think if they find out their mother is on those videos. Or their parents and relatives find out.

Probably they won't care or they would have taken greater care to teach a sense of decency, propriety and morals to those girls. Some people are going to be hellions no matter what but a little parental involvement does go a long way.

Have to wonder how many emotional problems happen to the dim-witted "stars" of those videos who probably have signed away fall rights for a few beers or hits of dope or whatever just for the moment.

Cause when they are sagging and dragging and bagging, nobody is going to want to see them in the nude and the residual income they signed away would come in handy.

These videos cause disrespect for women in general.

Add to this that the young lady may suddenly mature and has a OMG moment and emotional damage ensues. You signed away all your rights to future royalties or lawsuits caused by  any damages you felt you suffered, etc. & etc. Now she lives hoping her co-workers, boss, husband and/ or children won't find out and see her nude, drunk or stoned as a pig acting like a bimbo s**t. It might be great publicity if you are a prostitute, stripped or porn film star but in a serious, professional business environment where millions and billions of dollars are on the line, well, not so much.

Even though I doubt some of these foolish women will ever make it into a corporate suite intellectually, even a supermarket cashier or sales clerk or waitress or other woman in a pink collar occupation will probably always carry the shame, the stigma and not wanting people to know she was ever filmed in such sleaze.

No abortions were performed in the making of these movies.

But what about the irresponsible lifestyle they encourage?

These films are stupid and disgusting --not just harmless fun.

Are they a RIP OFF?  I think so as they are ripping off the ogling, leering creeps who buy them and the idiotic, shallow, immature twits who "act" in them.

How are they RIPPING ME OFF PERSONALLY?

Good question, that.  I would not buy them or film them. For obvious reasons, I am unable to appear in them LOL.  Just the fact that there are  leering idiots who buy them and that there are b****** stupid enough to be their subject matter clutters my world.

Makes me very cynical about the chances of this country to be able to be serious about  severe political problems which need their attention a lot more than dreck like this!

You can also be ripped off not only financially but emotionally and intellectually as well.

Don't want to support or encourage this type of thing and don't want to get ripped off financially by this sordid enterprise?

THEN DON'T BUY THE VIDEOS IN THE FIRST PLACE!
