FAQ

FAQ - Updated June 2019

How do points work? Can you tell me the most effective way to get access to tons of content?

Absolutely. The simple answer is: subscribe and earn points. The higher your subscription level, the more points you earn. At the $10-level, you get $15 worth of points. But at the $200-level, you get $600 worth.

Right now, we have over 270 sets live on the site. The average set list price is around 15 dollars in cash. That's only $5 in points, however. By investing $200 dollars, you could be getting up to 40 different sets. In just a few months, you could have total access to the current content.

Or, just invest in a ton of points once and hang onto them for when we release a high-dollar set. Buy the rest with cash (and keep an eye out for coupons and deals!) and buy the big-ticket items with points and save.

Partner Update: One amazing feature of our site is that points can be spent anywhere within the Darkwood Models ecosystem. You can purchase content from any of our members in the same way you could any core Darkwood content.

There’s a ton of content here, but I’ve seen a lot more on your Instagram. What’s your release schedule like?

We plan to release between 10-15 sets per month to the site. This will include both new and archival content. If you’re looking for a specific model who has not yet been released, shoot us an email at requests@darkwoodmodels.com. If you’re looking for more of a model who is on the site, purchase her sets. When a model sells, we’ll add her content to a short list for adding additional sets on the site.

Can you explain your pricing a bit?

As a general rule, our math works like this:

"Small" sets start at 3.99

"Medium" sets start at 5.99

"Large" sets start at 9.99

"Extra Large" sets start at 13.99

"Mega" sets start at 17.99

Fetish, Nudity, Multiple Models, and the amounts of each per set influences the final price of the set. A 7-model MEGA set starts at around 60. There are also "Premium" models that simply cost us more to book. 

Keep in mind, if you purchase 50 points for 20 dollars, you're essentially getting more than half off on each of these sets - so the value speaks immediately once you subscribe.

Cool, can you elaborate further on your pricing and points structure?

Our launch goal is to match the sorts of releases we have done for the past 3 years on our Patreon. In order to give our members as much content on this site as we did on Patreon, we implemented a flexible rewards program. At the standard supporting amount ($20), you’ll be getting 50 points. This should allow you to essentially purchase the same number of sets supporters were receiving on our Patreon. Only now supporters can select the sets they unlock, and they can mix-and-match. And there’s a ton more flexibility, since points roll over from month to month. If you’re just visiting and want to purchase one or maybe two sets, our prices are higher to help support our costs.

What is an "Updated" or "Eternally Updated" Set?

We believe in giving our members value unlike any other in the market. If we revise a set, update edits, or polish anything - we'll update the set and add the revised content free of charge. You'll just see the work improve.

Eternally Updated sets are a retired idea; the goal was to regularly add free content to sets (and slightly increase the price). We will be replacing this idea manually.

What are the "Introducing" sets?

These are sets designed to help you get a good idea of what a model looks like and the sort of energy she brings to her sets. They tend to be priced very low, unless the set includes lots of skin, or the set is extremely large

We'd rather you invest in the models you want to see more of, rather than buy big sets and change your mind.

What can we expect to see from your new site over the next few months?
  1. New features, such as the newly released "Eternal Sets" option.
  2. Clips and Video
  3. Content from Partners
  4. Tons of new models
  5. Updated search options
  6. Bug fixing
  7. Better Navigation
  8. 15-30 new sets per month
  9. Explorations of new theme and ideas; what you buy is what we'll shoot more of.
  10. And more...
What sets Darkwood Models apart from other, similar, sites?

Darkwood Models has four distinct brands, all in one site: casual, boudoir, cosplay, and fetish/erotic. Unlike other sites, you’re not getting the same (or a similar) type of content in each set. In addition to having a large catalogue of unique models, we also have multiple sets of each model we work with – if you find one you like, you can see more and support her with your purchases.

In addition, Darkwood Models is the ONLY site (to our knowledge) that has "Update" and "Eternal Update" features - this means we will CONTINUE to re-invest in existing content. This is why we call purchases on our site an "investment" - because it's doing a lot more for you and our talent than other similar sites.

Finally, Darkwood Models is all about building relationships with our customers. The content you purchase helps us decide on the direction of the site, and allows us to create high-quality sets (and clips) specifically for our members.

Why do you use the term "Investing"?

When you invest in a set, it's added to your collection forever. Moreover, your purchases will change the direction of our content releases - the more of a model we sell, the more of her content we will release. The same applies for the types of content. 

Furthermore, as sets become popular, we often pay attention to those sets and enhance them with new edits or content.

Therefore, we consider it an investment in our site and your experience whenever you make a purchase with us.

I bought a set and am not happy with it. What can I do?

Email support@darkwoodmodels.com. We have a no refund policy, however, we will listen to our supporters’ feedback and are here to ensure customer satisfaction.

Note: This applies to Partner content as well.

How do I contact the right person for your site?

For all business inquiries, email inquiries@darkwoodmodels.com

How can I provide feedback on a set?

We love all sorts of feedback! Shoot us an email at feedback@darkwoodmodels.com with the set name and your feedback.

They do not allow processing for any Adult content.

What's this about Partners? (Beta)

Darkwood Models is proud to announce our Darkwood Partner Beta. It is the first stage of a launch project that will allow like-minded photographers from around the world to sell on-brand content through the Darkwood Models website.

Best of all, the ecosystem will be united: Subscription points you earn will work across all platforms, allowing you to discover and invest in artists and models in a way no other site does.

 

How can I qualify to become a Partner?

During the Beta, we are only accepting photographers we know. Once we exit the Beta, we will accept photographers who:

  • We have vetted and confirmed (to the best of our ability) to meet our ethical requirements.
  • Whose content meets our requirements and standards.
  • Whose passion for this new platform will benefit all members on the platform, not just themselves.
  • Who understand the expectation of taking care of their talent (models) appropriately.

    We want to create a highly ethical platform of like-minded artists - not a mismash of individuals randomly submitting any set they think might sell, regardless of the content.

    If you feel you meet these requirements now, or want us to keep you in mind for when we exit the Beta, feel free to email admin@darkwoodmodels.com

What is the Darkwood Models Brand? (For Partners)

Artistic and elevated lifestyle, boudoir, fetish, and cosplay content that does not include:

  • Vivid depictions of vaginal penetration
  • Vivid depictions of actual sexual situations (pornography)
  • The act of any form of anal or vaginal insertion - a tail or buttplug is fine once inserted, but the act itself will not be depicted
  • Any suggestion of non-consent, overt and dehumanizing displays of women (subject to review), and any male/female content that suggests ANY sexual interaction (including most POV shots)
How does the Partner program work?

Partners make 85% of all direct sales (after taxes). Darkwood Models keeps all proceeds from points/subscriptions.

50% of all revenue from points/subscriptions will be spent to enhance and market the site (to benefit all Partners and members of the site).

Payouts occur at the end of each month, and we include reporting to show sales figures accurately and honestly.

To submit a set, a verified Partner must include a model's full consent form, proof of ID, and fill out a submission template. Sets are then reviewed prior to being launched on the Partner's portal page.

It is highly suggested that Partners incentivize model sales and growth on our site to their models. As site-awareness grows for one, it grows for all, and taking appropriate financial care of models is one component of the ethical values imbedded in the Partner program.

Disclaimer: We reserve the right to contact any models associated with a set to confirm consent for any sets submitted.

Can a model also be a Partner?

If a model is either

A: a photographer with her own releases and IDs collected, or;

B: has completed consent forms from the photographers she has worked with, including proof of her age during the time she took any submitted sets, yes.

A model can become a Partner on Darkwood Models.

Disclaimer: We reserve the right to contact any photographers associated with a model's content to confirm ownership of the aforementioned content.

What are your "Ethical Expectations" of a Partner?

In order to grow and maintain good standing with the creators in this community, we must hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards possible. Therefore, we expect all Partners to:

  • Be completely clear with all contracts and terms with all parties involved in a creative session (including photography and video, etc.)
  • Be transparent about any payments or payouts - if a Partner is selling content, we believe it is unethical for a model to not have a mechanism to make some form of compensation for that product
  • To comport him or herself wisely with any business dealings that may reflect on Darkwood Models - this includes, but is not limited to, honorable dealings with models
