Pros: - Part of the Kink.com network
- Approximately 140 scenes available
- Updates weekly
- Good mix of scenarios
- Videos available in a variety of formats and sizes
- Pictures (with zips) available
- Unique Ė Iím not aware of another site like it on the Ďnet
- Excellent value for price
Cons: - As with the last time I reviewed this, there are no negatives. If you have an interest in this niche (BDSM and public nudity), then this site is sure to satisfy.
Bottom Line: Public Disgrace is one of the Kink sites that I join regularly. Like the other sites in the network, this one has a fairly unique niche. Like other Kink sites, the folks at PD really have an excellent product.

Iíve re-read my past two reviews and what I wrote continues to be valid. The biggest change is that the site is getting bigger by the week. They are now up to approximately 140 videos, most of which are about an hour long,

The basic formula remains unchanged since the site first opened: they combine some pretty intense BDSM (with a lot of humiliation, which is a sub-genre in BDSM) with public nudity and sex. The two broad categories that I said existed are still there: scenes shot in the U.S. (mostly) in the Kink Armories and scenes shot in Europe. The scenes shot in Europe are far more daring (obviously due to a more relaxed environment re public nudity) involving bondage and nudity actually out in public in front of regular people going about their business. The scenes shot in the U.S. still involve public humiliation but it is done in a more controlled setting with a group of people who obviously are in on the whole thing. Having said that though, there have been several U.S. scenes posted since my last review that really push the envelope. There are no scenes that compare to those shot in Europe for full outdoor public nudity, but there are some scenes that push the limits.

Regardless of where the scenes are shot, the underlying formula is unchanged: take a model, put her in bondage in some public setting and add in a heavy dose of humiliation. That takes up the first half of the scene, and then the model is bound and fucked. While that may sound like a recipe for all the shoots to look the same, the site does an excellent job of keeping the scenarios fresh and interesting.

As with all Kink sites, the scenes are available in a variety of formats and sizes to keep everyone happy. There are both HD and SD wmv files, an HD mp4 and a format for IPods. You can download the entire scene as one file in the listed formats, or you can download it in segments. Pictures are also available individually or as a zipped set.

Iíve said before that Public Disgrace is an excellent value, and it continues to be, especially now that the site has grown. The site continues to update weekly. To make the site a better value, register as a Kink.com member (free) and get on their mailing list. They regularly email special offers and deals on this and other Kink sites.

The bottom line remains the same: this is an excellent site if you have an interest in this very specialized genre.

(Some may quibble with the Ď99í score, but I stand by it. The scoring guide recommends scores in the 90s for sites that are ďnear perfect, best in itís class. Highly recommended.Ē That is definitely the case here.)

Pros: - Kink.com is among the best (if not the best) BDSM provider on the internet
- Very user-friendly Ė easy to navigate and download
- Part of a larger network of BDSM sites
- All exclusive videos
- A mix of settings (some outdoors in Europe and some inside at Kinkís Armories
- Excellent value for the monthly fee
- Very unique content. Iím not aware of any other content quite like this on the web
- Discount access to other sites on the network
- Excellent customer service
- Regular updates
Cons: None. I mean that. In my last review of this site it was just new and didnít have a lot of scenes up. Now there are in excess of 90 with more being added regularly.
Bottom Line: Itís certainly no secret to anyone who has read any of my other reviews of sites on the Kink.com network, but Iím a huge fan of this company. Obviously itís essential that Iím a fan of BDSM too, and for anyone who is, Kink.com offers the best BDSM sites available.

When I last reviewed Public Disgrace it was a relatively new site to the network that catered to a very unique niche: BDSM and BDSM-related activities outdoors and indoors in public settings. As the site has grown it has continued to serve this niche and serve it very well.

The niche, as you can tell from past reviews, puts a woman in a BDSM situation, with various forms of bondage and discipline, and brings her into public. In my opinion, the site can be divided into two broad but distinct categories: public outdoor with real public looking on, and public but in a controlled environment. The site is relatively equally divided between these two sub-niches.

The public outdoor scenes are very unique. They are shot in Europe, where the religious right obviously hold little influence. A woman in some form of bondage may be made to walk in a public square with her arms bound and her skirt around her ankles. Or perhaps on a bus. Sex is often included, but not normally right out in public, though it is outdoors and the public is nearby. These scenes are very unique and very interesting, though sometimes I can feel a little uncomfortable for the public who happen by.

The second broad sub-niche are scenes filmed in some setting like a bookstore, a bar or a hardware store. These seem to be a bit more staged than the real public ones, and part of that feeling comes from the ability to control access. The result is that there is usually more sex involved. This sub-niche also includes scenes shot at the Kink.com Armories in San Francisco. These scenes are more like a BDSM gangbang. Both of these types of scenes are very well done and are also interesting.

On the technical side, the site offers video in various formats and scenes that are downloadable in segments or as a whole. There are pictures, and zips are available.

For a site with this amount of very unique photos and videos, the price offers excellent value. Once youíre a member of any of the Kink.com sites you can get discounted access to the others. While some sites, like Society SM and their related sites, now offer five sites with one membership, I canít fault Kink.com for not doing this. The sites within Kink.com are all unique and are easily able to stand on their own.

Public disgrace is an amazing site offered by a company that obviously cares about its product and customers. I highly recommend taking a membership.

Pros: - Massive site
- Stunning models
- Mostly exclusive scenes
- Class-leading production values
- Well organized layout
- Fast downloads
- Supports download managers
- TBP / PU discount
- Photos available (with zips too)
- Excellent quality photos
Cons: - Nothing really. At three weeks into my membership I haven't found anything to complain about.
Bottom Line: Iím probably the last PU member to take out a membership on this network. I finally took the plunge and joined the network and was immediately impressed by the quality here. Iíve said in the past, and I stand by it, a site has to do well in three areas to be a great site. First, the porn has to be good, second, the site has to be well organized, and third, it has to be easily accessible.

I should step aside for a moment and say that Iím writing this review as a first-time subscriber. I realize that some PU members have said that they donít like some of the recent updates. I donít see anything in the latest updates that would cause me to agree with that, but Iíll admit that I may be just overwhelmed as this is my first visit here.

Regarding my first criterion Ė good porn Ė I think this network is among the best Iíve ever seen, and Iíve been an active porn subscriber for many years. Subjectively it is incredible. If I were to allow more subjectivity in my scoring this network might just be 100. Itís that good. The network is so big that there are likely models to satisfy most interests, as long as you like specific types of women. (Iím not being sarcastic Ė BBW, hairy, etc are legitimate niches but you wonít find those represented here.) Many of the models are exactly what I look for: young and petite. Last year xexbot wrote that ďThe skankiest girl on their sites will still be ten times hotter than the best looking girls on other sites.Ē Heís right: there is really no clearer way to describe the models here. The sex too, is what I like. I donít think the site is too heavily skewed to anal sex, but if you donít like anal you might think that it is. There is definitely a lot of anal, even on the sites that arenít anal-themed.

This criterion isnít just subjective though. Even if I didnít like the models Iíd have to admit that the production values are top quality too. It is obvious that the directors and technical staff are highly skilled.

My second criterion (site organization) is also met, but it could be better. Thatís the bad news. The good news is that they are working on that now. Just in the past few weeks theyíve made some improvements and it appears that theyíll soon have an extensive list of tags to help sort material. For now, each of the networkís sites is fairly unique so that alone is a good first cut at sorting things. Once in a site you have a large thumbnail for each scene on the page and rolling your mouse over it gives you key data like female models in it and the date it was uploaded. Depending on the site there could be one page or many. You can also search the network by model and doing so brings up all her scenes in the network. Some have said that the navigation is too simple. It is simple, but it does work. I have no complaints about it but I am looking forward to the massive number of filter tags coming soon.

As for the porn being accessible, the network scores high here too. You have the option of streaming or downloads with many download options available. Obviously the newer scenes have more options, with three different resolutions each of wmv and H.264. When available I took the medium range of H.264 and these are a great compromise between quality and file size. These came in at 960x540 at 3000kb/s and 30fps. Those numbers donít do the scenes justice though as they look better than higher resolution scenes at some other sites. Obviously the older material has fewer download options and in some cases limited options for file types.

I used a download manager with no issues. Download speeds were as good as Iíd get anywhere else but the real advantage is that the links donít seem to time out at all. If they do, the time-out duration is long. And given the amount of data I was downloading the first week or two of my membership I can guarantee you that there is no download limit.

The network is huge. There are 21 primary sites and 18 bonus sites. The network has almost 11,000 scenes spread over these sites. A vast majority of the material seems to be exclusive and the only non-exclusive stuff I was aware of was some older U.S. DVD stuff on some of the bonus sites.

For a (primarily) video site they definitely donít scrimp on photos. I suspect a photo collector could join here too and be very happy. The photos offered are often both screencaps and photos and theyíre available as singles or zips. Many sets come in two resolutions. The highest resolutions look great and come in at approximately 3000x4200. Older photos arenít so high, of course.

So would I recommend joining? Yes, yes and yes. This is a huge network of top-quality porn with some incredible models that is available on a well-organized site that has fast downloads. And it offers an amazing price for PU members. This is definitely in the top three sites/networks Iíve ever joined and I highly recommend joining.

Pros: - Excellent quality in videos and photos
- HD Available (up to 1920x1080) for many videos and all newer videos
- Multiple download options
- HD Streaming available
- Over 1000 videos available (varying lengths)
- Photos available (most high resolution Ė some at 2592x3888)
- Photos zipped or singles
- Great mix of North American and European models
- Models are very beautiful
- Some great on-location shoots
- Not Ďcookie-cutterí porn
- iPhone / mobile device users have separate area so no need to sort
- Still updating regularly
- Discount to ALS Angels with site membership ($9.95) (this is NOT a pre-checked cross-sell)
Cons: - Limited search function
Bottom Line: The last time I joined ALS Scan I joined specifically for the public nudity scenes. I did that because I really had no interest in anything else they had to offer. I did download some stuff other than the public nudity and when I finally got around to watching it I was amazed at how stunning the models were, how hot the scenes were, and how the site seemed to go out of its way to offer industry-leading resolutions on both video and pictures.

Objectively, the site is as good as it gets. Itís near perfect. Itís obvious that the site owner wants to deliver an excellent product to his customers.

The site offers both video and pictures, and unlike many other sites one doesnít take a back seat to the other. Both are very well done. The site currently has over 1000 videos on the site, with more being added. One point about the updates is that they are new, as in recently shot, and they are old, in that the site offers older, re-mastered material.

The videos are all available in multiple formats. The formats and sizes vary depending on when the video was shot and uploaded, but itís fair to say that if youíre downloading a video from 2007 it would have exceeded the specs of almost anything available elsewhere. For the past year or so all videos have been available in true HD. Theyíre available in DivX and mp4 format (1280x720) and in WMV9 at 1920x1080 (at 8000kbps). I only downloaded the WMV files, and they are amazingly crisp. This is some of the best video Iíve ever seen. HD streaming is also available. HD became pretty common in mid-2007 though not universal until later.

The videos come in several categories: solo photo shoot, solo masturbation and girl/girl. There are several public nudity shoots, but they havenít added to these in a couple of years. Each year for the past several the crew has taken models to an on-location shoot in the Caribbean. The locations and the models combine with the technical expertise of the crew to create some fun, hot videos. There are also casting shoots in Budapest and the Czech Republic. These arenít necessarily Ďhotí but they are a lot of fun to watch. Mixed in to some of the scenes are some fisting (girl-on-girl and solo) and some peeing (but no golden showers).

Iím not a picture guy, but Iíll make an exception for this site. The pics are available as SD or HD and as singles or zipped. The HD size is large (I saw some at 2592x3888) and subjectively they are incredible! Zooming in causes no pixilation at all.

I used Free Download Manager and it worked perfectly. Download speeds were 1850+/- but that may be where my settings are since I donít know how to change them. File sizes can be huge, so people with download caps need to be wary.

One thing I thought was a nice touch was that they created a separate portal for people who download to mobile devices. That makes finding the material easy.

Subjectively, this site is second to none. The models are stunning. There is a good mix of North American and European models. A-list porn stars are here too. The scenes all look incredible. The lighting, camera work, sound and editing are all near-perfect.

This isnít cookie-cutter porn Ė although there are a few broad categories of scenes, the director and models do an excellent job of making each scene feel fresh. It looks like theyíre having fun on the site. My guess is that they are.

Is there anything wrong with the site? Not really, but it could benefit from a search function. There is nothing now, and arguably thatís okay since the shoots can be sorted by model. By they should consider adding a search function for things like fisting, peeing and lesbian. But donít get me wrong Ė the addition of a search function would only be like an extra layer of icing on a delicious cake. (And since they design and sell their own bikinis, maybe a search by style would be great too.)

Some caveats for anyone thinking of joining Ė these arenít negatives, just things you need to be aware of: 1) there are no b/g scenes, 2) 99% of the models are petite, Caucasian and young.

To add more icing to the cake, when you join this site you can get a $9.95 subscription to ALS Angels. Itís a very similar site and Iím not really sure of the difference but it is a nice addition. If I find major differences Iíll post a comment or review if warranted.

The bottom line is that if you like this kind of material and these types of models, you likely wonít find a better site on the Ďnet. Be prepared to spend some time here.

Pros: - Huge collection (approximately 840 scenes)
- Top quality material
- Very innovative
- Excellent customer service
- Excellent value for money*
- Beautiful models
- Models are a good mix of known, unknown and fetish
- Multiple download options
- Photos available (with zips)
- Download speeds are great
- Supports download managers
- Membership gives discounts to other Kink sites

*I know that there are complaints that there is no Ďnetworkí access. I agree, but fully understand why not. The material is so well done that it must cost a fortune to produce the unique material for so many sites.
Cons: There really are no cons. This is likely the best (excluding other Kink sites) BDSM site you can find on the internet. And to make it better, it is a great value too. In my opinion, it would a great value at twice the price.
Bottom Line: As big of a fan of Kink.com sites as I am, I canít believe that I never took a membership to Hogtied before. This is the site that started the Kink empire way back in 1998. Peter Acworth started this site shooting scenes out of his apartment and eventually progressed through a series of locations until buying the San Francisco Armories a few years back. You can see that transition as the scenes progress.

Even though this was the beginnings of Kink, the business model that they continue to use is already in place: the shoots are very well done, and the videos and photos meet, and probably exceed industry standards. Sure, the 1998 videos arenít up to 2011 standards, but to expect that is unreasonable. What is noticeable, however, is that there are sites today that barely achieve the technical abilities that Hogtied did in 1998.

Another interesting thing to note in this walk through Kink history is how the seeds of several other Kink sites were sowed here first. Water Bondage obviously has its roots here, and you could easily argue that sites like Device Bondage and Public Disgrace do too. As it is a walk through history, the initial scenes are fairly tame and feature unknown models and use little plot. Eventually the scenes shot at the Armories become BDSM spectacles, many times with a plot too.

An interesting side note is the models. At first, they appear to be largely unknown models, maybe girls dabbling in adult picking up some extra cash. They then go through a phase where some well-known A-list porn stars not normally known for doing fetish work show up. The more recent scenes tend to feature models well known in the fetish world. Models like Amber Rayne, Dana DeArmond and Madison Young.

The premise is simple and hasnít really changed much Ė with the exception of some plot-based scenes: the model is tied up and sexually tormented. Sex occurs, but not often. If you want sex in every scene, see another child of this site: Sex and Submission. As simple as the premise is, it works. If you watch a lot of it, it can seem repetitive, but lay off for a while and the innovation becomes apparent again.

Technically, as with all other Kink sites, they are excellent. Videos are offered in multiple formats to suit your wants and capabilities. Photos are available too, with zips on offer. Download speeds are good and managers are supported.

The bottom line is that this is another excellent site from Kink. It is huge, offering well over 800 scenes, many of which are nearly an hour long. The average scene is probably closer to 30 minutes, especially on the newer scenes where the intensity is pretty high. If BDSM is your thing, you owe it to yourself to get a membership here.

One bit of advice: if youíve not done so before, create an account at Kink. Itís easy and free and you will get email offers for excellent deals. When youíre a member to one site, you get a discount on others.

Pros: - Huge collection dating back five years
- One of the few sites available that photo fans and video fans can both enjoy
- Standard-setting production values
- Site has a Ďpersonalí feel thanks to the models and staff
- Site is simple, but user-friendly
- Exclusive content (not found elsewhere)
- Unique content (nothing else like it on the Ďnet)
- Bills through CC Bill
- Excellent value
- Allows download managers with no obvious timeouts
- Offers HD in multiple formats
Cons: - None. Seriously, none.
Bottom Line: ALS Scan is a site that I shouldnít like because I generally have little interest in solo girl, masturbation scenes and girl-girl scenes. But even though thatís all that ALS Scan offers, the site is certainly in my top-five favourite sites and a site that I go back to regularly.

I wonít go into a lot of detail about the technical specs of the site because those have been addressed before by me and others in earlier reviews. The site continues to offer HD video in both MP4 and WMV. I didnít bother to comment on that in a previous review because I didnít realize how rare that is. Due to size restrictions, many sites only offer HD in MP4 format and leave those of us who still prefer WMV to live with a lower-resolution file or go with MP4. This would appear to show the level of customer support that the site has if they take this extra step to keep a few of us happy.

Iíve said before that for me to really like a site it has to excel at three things: 1) the content has to be good, 2) the site design needs to be effective and user-friendly, and 3) the material needs to be easily accessed by the members either by streaming or download. A lot of sites score high on two of those, but few score high on all three of those. ALS is one of the sites that does well on all three. They certainly knock two of them out of the park and do better than average on another.

First the content: like any site, if you donít like the content youíre not going to like the site regardless of how great the technical aspects are. In this respect prospective members really need to know that ALS Scan isnít a Ďnormalí porn site. There is no hardcore b/g here at all. Thereís no b/g stuff period. There is mostly solo and g/g material. If youíre not into that, the site might seem a bit dull, but they add some unique character by having lots of behind-the-scenes stuff too. I call it BTS, but only because I canít think of a better term for it. Some people donít like this, but some like me do, and thatís having the camera rolling during a photo shoot. Iím not sure why I like it, but I do and this stuff is very well done. ALS Scan may be best known, however, for their location shoots in the Caribbean, which seem to occur annually. These are a lot of fun to watch and take place at a villa and on the beach. For a site that shoots so much outdoor material the production values are incredible. These guys have the technical aspects of lighting, sound, camerawork and editing down solid. They should teach others these skills. The site offers hundreds, perhaps thousands of exclusive videos and all of them have a unique and personal feel to them. Itís like the staff are making porn that they like with no concerns about commercial value Ė except that what they make is so good it has exceptional value.

In terms of content, one thing that hasnít been posted in several years and I really wish theyíd shoot more of is European public nudity and body painting. Iím a big fan of this stuff and when the staff at ALS Scan did it they applied their usual high standards and made some of the best public nudity scenes available on the Ďnet. (So if an ALS Scan staffer happens to read this, please, please, please shoot more public nudity!)

As for site design, it can be best described as Ďprimitive.í But while that might be a problem for many other sites it really isnít here. Given the narrow focus of the site having a search function really wouldnít add a lot of value. As it is, you can sort for photos or videos and you can sort by model. Beyond that not much is really needed. I think a fair contrast with the site design here might be to Videobox which had a simple, effective and plain-looking site. Then the marketers decided to make it look pretty to attract new members but in doing so they made it less user-friendly. The ALS Scan site probably looks like it did way back when they started, and since it works I hope they donít see the need to make the site flashier at the expense of utility.

As for accessibility the site scores high here too. Downloads are fast, the site allows download managers, there appears to be no timeouts on downloads and there are no download limits. It seems that the site owners sat down and thought what theyíd like if they were the customer and then did it.

Another rare attribute is that the site caters to both photo and video collectors. They offer high quality regardless of what youíre looking for. Iím not normally a photo collector, but this is one site that I make an exception. The photo quality is incredible.

Obviously I highly recommend ALS Scan, with the caveat on content. Even if you really have limited interest in the stuff they offer Iíd still recommend giving them a try. The content is playful, personal and erotic thanks to the models and staff and the site lets you access it easily. That makes the site an excellent value.

Pros: - 195 exclusive scenes
- Many true amateurs
- Among the most realistic sites around
- Great site for fans of oral, cum play and swallowing
- Simple and effective layout
- Multiple download options
- Supports download managers
- No download limits
- Broad range of models
- Excellent camerawork and lighting given the conditions
- Excellent choices in editing

Cons: - Limited thumbnails of model
- Broad range of models means youíll see some you donít like
Bottom Line: I look for objectivity in a review, and I strive to provide the same when I write reviews, but sometimes a site comes along that makes it tough for me to do that. ĎHeatí in a scene is definitely subjective, and in this case, for me, the heat isnít just turned up to eleven, itís turned up to Ďinsane.í I think my monitor was about to catch fire.

I wouldnít normally join a gloryhole site, but Iíve been trying to collect as many scenes by a beautiful young and relatively obscure model named Claire. Sheís not done much, and she looks like a pretty girl-next-door type, so I was surprised to see her doing something like this. She has four scenes on the site and at least one of them is already a favorite. But to my surprise, I was hooked on this site after watching a few scenes.

For me, the heat comes from the realism. I recently started joining casting sites, where the premise that an unsuspecting model comes in for some information on the adult business and ends up trying out. Obviously, in a world with legal requirements for ID these scenes are staged. But here, while they are still staged, there is an element of realism that Iíve never seen before. While the female obviously needs to be properly documented, the males can be a lot more anonymous. It doesnít strain credibility to think that a model could be brought into a video booth and guys would stick their dicks in for some oral. To add to the chances that these arenít fully staged, the siteís FAQ page has contact information for anyone whoíd like to have their penis star in a video.

Some scenes have a bit of a setup with an interview, but others donít. The action takes place inside a booth where the model services between five and ten men, sometimes more. In most scenes there is cum-play and swallowing. Some scenes have vaginal sex, a few have some anal, and several have two girls. The average length of the scenes is around 35 minutes, but some last over an hour.

Speaking of the girls, there is a broad range of looks. There are some that are young and beautiful, some heavily tattooed and pierced, some BBW, some MILF. The upside is that there is likely some here for every taste. The downside is that you might see some models that you donít like. Unlike most casting sites, I canít find much information on many of these models, which may means theyíre true amateurs.

With a video booth as your set it would be easy to have poorly shot videos. That doesnít happen here: the videos are well lighted and shot. The cameraman obviously knows what heís doing.

With scenes like these the editor might be tempted to cut lots of dead air out and keep the action flowing. That doesnít happen here. First, there isnít a lot of dead air, and second, the editorís choices keep the realism and heat up. Bad editing could ruin the site, but the good editing they have adds a lot to it.

There are currently 195 scenes uploaded, but maybe 20 of those are two-part scenes so that reduces the number a bit. The site updates with one new scene added per week. All the scenes offer some choice in how you view it. Streaming is available, but only at a fairly low res. Downloads are MP4 only and usually offer 480x270, 960x540 and 1920x1080. I downloaded the 1080 when they were available and those come in at that resolution with a bitrate around 5000 kb/s and 29fps. They look good. On some videos the highest is 960x540 but those are rare.

Others here have reported a daily limit. I downloaded a lot in a few days and never hit any limit, so that may be gone. I used a download manager to queue scenes and had no issues with that. The download speed was always the maximum that my manager will allow.

The site has a simple design, but since it focuses on one niche it doesnít need to be more complex. You can sort by update and model, there is a search function and each scene has tags. One minor flaw is that there are limited thumbnails of the models so you canít really tell if you want the scene. Thatís not a big deal since you can open the photos and see more.

There are photos, but I canít speak to them. This really is a video site.

One innovation in most scenes is an unobtrusive Ďcumshot counterĒ in the lower left of the screen that counts off a running total of satisfied customers. I like it and miss it on the scenes where it isnít used.

As with any niche site, thereís no sense in joining if you donít like the niche. But here there are several covered: oral, cum-play, swallowing and multiple shots. If you like any of those, you might like this site. If you do join youíll get a lot of unique and exclusive scenes on a simple but effective site and those scenes are well shot and edited. Youíll get all this for a very fair price making this a great value. Not only do I recommend it, Iíll be a regular there myself.

Pros: - Part of the Kink.com family of sites
- 480+ scenes
- Updates weekly
- Standard-setting production values
- Many viewing / downloading options
- Many A-list models
- Rare niche (bondage AND sex)
- Supports download managers
- Clear model consent
- Excellent value
- Photos available as singles and zips
Cons: - None
Bottom Line: For those who know Kink.comís sites, Sex and Submission needs no introduction. S+S is one of their older sites and dates back nine years. All Kinkís sites focus on consensual BDSM play with each site adding a twist. Here the twist is sex. That may seem self-evident, but many of Kinkís sites donít have a lot of actual sex and when they do it is secondary to the specific niche. Here the sex is front and center. The sex isnít plain vanilla though, as there is always an element of D/s play and sex while in bondage or restraint. Kink.com is, in my opinion, the best BDSM company operating today.

For those unfamiliar with Kink, donít confuse them with ďAbuseĒ sites. Those sites seem to revel in making the model miserable. Kink is the opposite: the models get to explore this facet of their sexuality in a controlled environment and it is clearly all about their pleasure. Itís hard to explain, but this isnít misogynistic BDSM.

As with other Kink sites, this one goes out of its way to ensure that the model fully consents to the play. There is an interview in each one where the scene is discussed and the safe word is made known. I know there are some who reject this approach and think that the consent itself is forced, but there is no evidence to support that position. One factor that, in my opinion, speaks well for Kinkís professionalism are the numbers of A-list stars who shoot scenes here, and many of them shoot multiple scenes. I suspect that if Kink coerced the models that no A-list star would work for them, let alone shoot multiple scenes. Adding to this position is the fact that many of the A-listers are definitely not fetish models.

The site currently has 480 scenes. Older scenes start with an interview and jump right into the action. Newer scenes are scenario-based which can add to the heat. There is bondage in several positions, with sex in most of them. If the model does anal, there is usually some anal. The scenes close with an interview which can be interesting to watch to see what the model liked about the shoot. The average length of the scenes is a little over an hour. The scenes canít be said to meet usual standards in that Kink.com sets those standards. Set creation and production values are the best there are. For scenes that strive have a dark feel about them, they succeed but they donít look actually dark. They are all well light, shot and edited.

The site updates with one new scene being added per week.

As with all Kink sites there are a lot of options to watch the scenes. (Obviously the older scenes have fewer options) There is streaming in four available resolutions. Downloads are available for portable devices, in WMV and MP4 formats. Each of those offers a choice of resolutions. I opt for the highest quality MP4s and those come in at 1280x720, 5000kb/s and 29fps. My experience with the next largest is that they are 960x540 at 1500kb/s. A few of the older scenes appear to have been remastered to a higher quality, but some havenít. The highest resolution for some of the older scenes is 640x480 at 825 kb/s, but keep in mind that these were shot in 2005 so they were up to standard then..

Another difference exists between the oldest and newer scenes on the site. When Kink first started the scenes were relatively simple: ropes, chains, spreader bars, etc. were common implements. As Kink matured the scenes became a lot more innovative in the means to bind the models. Kink clearly has some creative minds at work. A majority of the scenes are innovative and very interesting.

Photos are available, though this is really a video site so those are secondary. I donít collect those so I have no information on them.

Download managers work for queuing scenes. I found the links timed out at about an hour, which is reasonable.

Kink.com isnít a network so each site requires a membership. The good news is that when youíre a member to one site you get a discounted price for the others. I usually take advantage of this by joining the cheapest site I want at the full price and then get the discounted price on the others. Iím on their mailing list but havenít seen an offer in several years.

The bottom line on this site is simple: if you have any interest in this niche you should seriously consider joining. For the price, you get access to almost 500 scenes, regular updates and many big-name porn stars doing some interesting fetish work for the best company in the BDSM business. The scenes look great, the bondage gear is innovative and the models really seem to enjoy the play. This is an excellent value and I highly recommend it.

Pros: - Rare niche
- Coupled with Bound Gang Bangs
- Membership gives you discounts to other Kink sites
- Many A-list models
- 59 scenes
- Updates weekly
- Usual well-done Kink.com site
- Supports download managers
- Streaming and downloads
- Choices for file type and resolution
Cons: - Not for the faint of heart, probably among the most extreme sites on the internet
- Female model name should be more prominent
Bottom Line: Let me start with a few of caveats:

ē This is probably one of the most extreme hardcore sites on the internet. Consider this a ďmay not be suitable for all audiencesĒ warning.
ē Many of the scenes use a r@ape fantasy as the scenario. I say this for two reasons, first to warn potential members of this fact, and second to tell people that I had an email chat with Khan and while he okayed describing the scenes in this way he said that using the actual word could cause problems for this site so if youíre commenting DO NOT USE THE WORD lest you incur the wrath of Khan.
ē Each scene, regardless of the scene set-up, has an interview with the model both before and after the scene. The initial interview CLEARLY shows that the model will be shooting the scene fully informed of what the scene will entail and fully consents to it and that there is a safe word in use. The concluding interview makes it clear that the model had nothing occur that she did not fully consent to. In all the interviews I watched the models reported that they enjoyed the scene.

In all my years of buying porn online this is possibly the most extreme hardcore site Iíve ever joined. Other Kink sites come close, but the use of a particular scenario in many of the scenes is what put this over the top. A membership here is definitely not for everybody.

Unlike a lot of other Kink sites, this one does use a scene setup. There is a storyline that plays out at the beginning. What I mean that is with sites like Device Bondage and The Training of O, which can be quite intense, there is really no scene setup. A model does a shoot and thatís it. Here, there is a story and much more often than not that story involves some sort of force by a group of men against a woman. No matter how you slice it, most of the scenes here involve simulated r@pe. If you think youíd be offended by that, and Iím sure a lot of people would be, then donít subscribe. Apart from the setup, the entire scene tends to follow the script with lots of slapping, spitting and generally rough sex.

If done wrong, these scenes could likely cause some problems for Kink, but each scene has an interview with the model both before and after the scene where it is made clear that model knows what sheís getting into and then the post-scene interview confirms that. There is no mistaking that this is pure fantasy.

Speaking of the models, one thing that struck me about the site, and it likely speaks to Kinkís good reputation in the business, are the number of A-list porn models who appear here. With material this extreme youíd think that only the hardest of the hardcore or fetish models would be here, but that isnít the case. Models like Chastity Lynn, Casey Calvert and Tara Lynn Foxx are here. Sure, they arenít exactly wallflowers but I am still pleasantly surprised to see them here.

There are currently 59 scenes uploaded with a new one being added each week. Most of the scenes last about an hour, with some exceeding that.

As with all other Kink sites, they get the technical stuff right. The site is well laid out and the user can change how the site looks by selecting how much information will be displayed on the main page.

One minor quibble is that with each scene the entire cast is credited. I have no problem with that, but the female should be given top billing in all cases. Sometimes you have to read through several names before you get to the female model. I buy porn to see the women. The men are just props.

Streaming and downloads are both available, and Kink offers a broad range of choices. There are four streaming resolution options available. Downloads are available in WMV or MP4 with each format being available in five resolutions. I downloaded the MP4 HD option which is 1280x720, 5000kb/s and 29fps. (For comparison, ďlargeĒ comes in at 960x540 at 1500kb/s and ďmediumĒ is 640x480 at 825 kb/s.) If you can spare the space it is definitely worth it to download the HD files. They are large though, with the average being 2GB.

Videos are also available as clips if you have a slow connection or only want one specific part of a scene.

The site supports download managers and I had no issues with links timing out with five or more scenes in the queue.

To add more value to this membership, it includes a membership to Bound Gangbangs. BGB stopped updating in August 2012. A member explained here explained that this was due to billers being uncomfortable with the content so in order to save it the models were no longer to be bound. There are 93 scenes that are pretty much like what youíll find on HCG but with the models in bondage while it happens.

Obviously the audience for this material is limited, but if you like this extreme porn (with full consent from the model) this is an excellent choice in a rare niche. Iím not aware of any other sites like this, but if there are some, Iím betting that this is better than the others.

Pros: - Huge site with exclusive videos
- Site well laid out
- High production values
- Beautiful models
- Lots of public nudity
- Lots of solo masturbation
- Some girl/girl
- Some (but not a lot) hardcore
- A chance to see some A-listers before they were stars
- Supports download managers
- Excellent video quality
- Downlaod options available
- Early adopters of HD
- High resolution photos available
- Photos available in zips
Cons: - If you donít like the typical FTV model then youíll likely not like the site
Bottom Line: Some may disagree with me on this assessment, but I see FTV Girls as serving two completely different niches within one site. They focus on public nudity and on solo girl masturbation. There are other niches (some girl/girl and some rare hardcore) but the majority of the scenes contain the two main niches that the site serves. There is a limitation to my review in that while Iím a huge fan of public nudity Iím not a big fan of solo girl stuff, so most of what I downloaded was the public stuff. I think itís reasonable to assume that if the public stuff is of such high quality that a prospective member who likes solo masturbation scenes would be equally happy with a membership.

The site has been around for 10 years now and continues to offer high quality exclusive scenes. Right from day one this site had high production values with good lighting, camera work and editing. The site now has 839 scenes uploaded and updates with one (sometimes two) scenes being added per week. Some may say that the update rate isnít enough, but when you consider the effort that goes into these scenes I think the once-a-week update is pretty impressive.

The site itself is well laid out and simple to use. The scenes are laid out 30 per page and each scene opens into a separate page. On that sceneís page there are links for the videos (two or more) and the photos. Each of those opens into a separate page with the download options. On newer scenes there are obviously more options with the scenes being HD in both WMV and mp4, in SD in either format and in two formats for mobile devices. The file size is shown too. I downloaded the HD mp4 videos and they come in at 1920x1080, 12,000kb/s and 30fps. The older HD videos have the same specs except the bitrate is about 8,000kb/s.

You can also sort by model and there is a search function and extensive use of tags. (One great advantage of the tags is that it allows the member to do some pre-sorting. I was here for public nudity and there was a tag for that.)

The site was an early adopter of HD video bringing it in in December 2007. The SD videos offered before that come in at 720x480, 1,200kb/s and 25fps.

One thing I liked about the layout was that when you opened the page for a specific video there are thumbnails of the photos on the same page which allows a bit of a preview to help you decide if you want the scene or not.

Photos are available and look great. Obviously the photo size has grown over the years with the latest being offered as either 1600 or 4000 pixel downloads. Zips are available.

An interesting facet of the site is that since it is so high quality and has been around so long it affords an opportunity to see A-list stars before they were stars, and in many cases under different names. Amia Miley appears as Ileana, for example. Christie Lee and Kelly Wells make early appearances. There are quite a few big models who appeared here early in their careers. Something that may be unique is the 2006 shoot of Brianna Love (as Brianna) when she is 8 months pregnant.

I joined specifically for the public nudity. In my opinion, public nudity is either very good or very bad. When done wrong all the heat is removed. FTV does it right: the public parts of their shoots are really well done. I use Teasers VOD as the gold standard of public nudity due to its high risk and intense heat. FTV isnít up to that standard but it is still excellent and any fan of the genre wonít be disappointed. I should also point out the flaw in comparing this site to Teasers: Teasers was so risky that the City of L.A. shut them down. Iíll accept the less in-your-face public scenes in FTV as a trade-off for more scenes being shot.

Notwithstanding the above, this is NOT just a public nudity site. Most videos have some public nudity and thatís followed by an indoor scene with masturbation. While I normally prefer the option to download an entire video, the fact that the shoot is broken into segments really fits well here. I just want the public stuff and thatís in a stand-alone video. Same with the solo stuff. I liked that the scenes are not sterile. The modelís personality is allowed to shine through. Some may not like that the cameraman interacts with the model in the scene, but I think it adds to the heat.

There is a lot of ďBTSĒ material available too for those of us who like that. Itís located under the ďExtrasĒ tab.

Download managers work on the site and I had no problem with using one.

If there is a downside to FTV it is likely that some people who like variety in their models may not be satisfied. The models are almost exclusively Caucasian, 18-22 and slim. Donít join looking for 30+ BBW black women. I like what they offer, and Iím a satisfied customer.

The bottom line is that this is an excellent site that does a great job of offering material for different interests. The material is great and it is easy to access. I recommend a membership.

Pros: - Beautiful models
- Exceptionally good production values
- Mix of American and European models
- Mix of solo, g/g, b/g and multiples
- Updates regularly
- Multiple download formats and sizes for videos
- HD available on all videos
- Photos available (as singles and zips in multiple formats)
- Allows download managers
- Fast download speeds
- Cross-sell at sign-up isnít pre-checked
Cons: - Anal is very rare
- Models have little variation, so if you donít like beautiful, petite 18-22 year olds maybe you should avoid the site.
Bottom Line: I have to confess that Iím always a bit surprised when I find sites like this so good. This really isnít the kind of porn I usually buy. I prefer harder-edged stuff from studios like Evil Angel and Kink.com. But maybe Iím wrong about my own habits because I really, really like this site. The best comparison I can think of for this site is X-Art: the women are exceptionally beautiful, the production values are exceptionally high, and the sex is sensual. This site is a great option for couples looking for something they can both enjoy.

The site is relatively new, with the oldest uploads being added on August 28, 2012. With 133 videos and 110 photo sets available some may see the site as too small, but that position would be to completely ignore the low price of $20 per month and the overall quality of the site. The site continues to grow regularly with a new video being added every two days and a new photo set being added on alternate days (mostly, anyway).

Videos are available primarily as mp4s (480x360, 640x360, 960x540, 1280x720HD and 1920x1080HD) with one WMV available at 1280x720HD. I downloaded the largest mp4s and those played at a bitrate of more than 7500kb/s and 23fps. Subjectively they look amazing. Keeping with the Ďnatural and sensualí feeling of the site, the scenes are shorter than found on some other sites because theyíre a more realistic length. There is some music to start the scene but that quickly fades. None of the scenes were overacted with fake moaning.

The videos have high production quality with lighting, sound and editing all being top tier. An issue some might have with the models is their lack of variation. They are almost exclusively 18-22, petite and Caucasian. If you like that general type of model then itís safe to say that they are also incredibly beautiful. There is a good mix of American and European / Russian models too. The videos are a mix of solo girl, g/g, b/g and some multiples. In the multiples with a male, the women outnumber the man.

The photos are available in three sizes (12800x800), 2000x1333 and 5600x3600). Theyíre available as zips or singles. The number of photos per set varies but the average seems to be around 150.

The technical bits of the site are well done too. The layout is simple and effective and you can easily sort by photos and videos, and by tags. Streaming and download links are easy to use. The site supports download managers and I saw some of the highest download speeds Iíve ever had while downloading porn.

Two points which are highly subjective and arenít factored in to the score: 1) there is only one b/g anal sex scene on the site with both photos and videos; 2) facials are rare here: I like seeing facials and in this case I miss them more since several of the male models are channelling their inner Peter North with massive shots. Iím guessing the lack of facials is because the site is otherwise couples-oriented and most women arenít as into facials as guys are.

Iím obviously highly recommending this site after what I wrote above. It is some incredibly sensual porn with some stunningly beautiful women who are presented with high production values on a well laid-out site that has fast download speeds. Some may see it as small, but even ignoring the fact that it is growing regularly it is still a great value for the high quality and reasonable price.

Pros: - Huge collection of innovative videos
- Unique niche
- Multiple download options
- Photos available
- Beautiful models
- Hardcore sex in BDSM settings
Cons: - Limited search function
- Organization could be improved
- File names vary and are of limited use
- No tags assigned to videos
- Some missing scenes
Bottom Line: TTOO was the first Kink site I joined several years back and it remains my favourite. Most BDSM sites put a woman in bondage and inflict some pain. Some sites have a unique theme (Water Bondage) but the underlying premise is the same. TTOO is different: there is bondage, humiliation and pain, but the premise is the training of a submissive woman. The niche is the making of a sub, not what can be done after the sub is created.

The traditional TTOO shoots are broken down into days, with the normal training regime being conducted over four days. The intensity of the training is increased as each day passes. Bondage, humiliation, demeaning work, pain and training are all here. Sex occurs in the shoots. The sex is very well done but isnít the main focus: it occurs as part of the training, not just for the sex itself. The end product is near four hours of some intense video per shoot with exceptional production values.

In the past couple of years TTOO has added a new kind of shoot to keep things interesting. This is still about training, but theyíll bring in multiple girls to audition to be trained. These can last from one to four days and involve much of the same kinds of training as the main scenes, but have an extra element of competition. These share the usual high production standards that Kink has. These are innovative and a welcome addition to the site.

The technical stuff is standard for all Kink sites. Each scene has its own page where the video can be streamed or downloaded. Downloads are available in either WMV or Mp4 format. Two resolutions are available for both formats. The highest resolution for both comes in at 1280x720.

Like all Kink sites, TTOO offers photos as singles and zips, but this really isnít a photo site so I wonít go into any detail.

Iím a HUGE fan of the Kink sites and I may have been blind to some faults because of that. The faults are fairly minor but just look more serious given the overall quality of the site. I think that for a site to be exceptional it has to provide excellent porn, make that easily available to members and has to be well organized. Obviously the first element is the most important, and Kink delivers: this is incredible porn. They succeed in the member access by allowing download managers and having servers that never slow down and give some of the highest download speeds Iíve encountered. Where Kink falls down is in site organization.

To keep this succinct, here are my specific concerns:

- Limited search function Ė the search function is limited and doesnít work well. The problem appears that when you search a term the only thing it searches is the scene title, not the performers. So searching for star X wonít get you a scene if the scene is titled ďRope Slut.Ē You can search the model index but that isnít great either. You can locate scenes on specific Kink sites but you canít download them from there. The solution is to take a few key words from the title and go back to the main site page and search those terms.

- File names vary and are of limited use Ė this is likely subjective, but the file naming convention has no standardization. If you want to have any hope of organizing the scenes into related groups youíll need to do it as you download. One bright note is that each scene has a unique shoot number as part of the name and that can be searched. The issue is you may download ď1234_BobbiĒ as the Day 1 scene in Bobbi Starrís training, and then download ď1100_Bobbi_SĒ as Day 2. The problem is that unless you rename the files as you go, the Bobbi in day 1 might not be Bobbi Starr, and if youíre sorting your files numerically youíre apt to get Day 1 and Day 2 mixed up. In most instances, modelís last names arenít included as part of the file. I think a file-naming standard that captured the shoot number, modelís full name and day of the shoot would work much better.

The lack of a search function and odd naming are bad enough when dealing with the traditional multi-day shoots, but organizing some of the multi-girl, multi-day shoots is a lot of work.

While this sounds like Iím being overly fussy, keep in mind that TTOO goes out of itís way to produce multi-day shoots. These are amazing, but grouping the whole shoot together is a lot of work and their own file names make organizing the files difficult.

Other more minor concerns are the lack of tags. Iím not saying that they need tags for everything, but for narrow, specific and hard to find niches they could work. Finally, while rare, there are missing scenes. The training scenes lose continuity when a day is missing.

The bottom line is this: when you weigh the good things about TTOO against the things that need improvement there is no contest. This is compelling, unique porn with stunning models in high-quality scenes. The negatives pale in comparison. If you have even a passing interest in BDSM Iíd highly recommend a membership.

Pros: - 650+ videos
- Many big name stars appear
- Updates approximately every four days with the addition of a new scene
- Good variation in age, body type, tattoos/ no tattoos
- Variety of ways to download and view the videos
- Streaming is available

- Photos are available Ė usually broken down into Ďsetsí with set zips being offered
- Supports download managers with no obvious time-outs
Cons: - Probably a bit extreme for many
- Some may not like the price
Bottom Line: Full disclosure: I think Kink.com is likely the best online porn company in existence, but Iíll do my best to stay objectiveÖ

Obviously with any website if you donít have an interest in the material being offered then youíre likely not going to like it. That is especially true for a site like this where the material offered is definitely not mainstream porn. If you donít like extreme BDSM then you definitely wonít like this site, but I trust that you can still appreciate the effort that Kink puts into the scenes.

Device bondage is just that: the scenes all involve a female submissive being put into bondage by using various devices rather than more traditional ropes. Kink has amassed quite an impressive collection of implements to immobilize the models. Once immobilized the model is subjected to some further torment and in most cases there are forced orgasms. Actual sex does occur, but not in every shoot. Many of the Doms are females.

This may or may not be new since I last looked at this site, but I find that there are more big-name porn stars here. Amber Rayne appears to have shot a bunch of scenes in the past while and there are other stars that I wouldnít expect to see on an extreme BDSM site. Examples of this are Marie McCray, Sensi Pearl and Kaylee Hilton.

The scenes tend to follow a set formula: the scene begins with an interview where the viewers can see that this is 100% consensual. Then the scene is broken down into three segments so the girl isnít in one device for the entire scene. This adds a lot of variety and keeps the scenes from becoming dull. The interviews have been polarizing here at PU and Kink uses them on all their sites. I suspect that they do this more to appease the puritans and provide some measure of legal protection, but the frequent criticism of them is that including them at the first of the video can kill the sinister mood. I tend to agree with that and would prefer the interviews to be at the end or even as a separate file. But since theyíre easily skipped it isnít that big a deal.

As of this writing there are more than 650 scenes and updates are posted approximately every four days with one scene being added each time.

This could be a good or a bad thing, depending on how you view it, but the models on the site donít all look alike. There is a good mix of stars and lesser-knowns, ages range from 18+ to over 40. There are models with lots of tattoos and models without tattoos. The site seems to want to appeal to as broad an audience as possible.

Another Ďnewí element (which I may just have not noticed before) resolves one of the few complaints Iíve had about this site. I wish that theyíd include more behind-the-scenes material and show the model being put into the devices rather than just start with the model already restrained. The site has posted a few Ďliveí shoots where the cameras are left rolling as the model is put into the devices and the production staff communicates with members watching the show live. There arenít many of these live shoots, but it does give a glimpse into the inner workings of the site and I hope that the site continues to add them.

Being a Kink site, the technical bits are all up to or better than industry standards. Each scene has its own page and you can either stream or download the video. Downloads are available in either WMV or Mp4 format. Two resolutions are available for both formats. The highest resolution for both comes in at 1280x720. The bitrates are a bit different between the formats but both are approximately 7000kb/s. Both play at 30fps.

The site allows download managers and I didnít experience any of the links timing out. Download speeds are a bit faster than Iím used to at other sites.

Perhaps the one thing that many prospective members might take issue with is the price. I agree that price is important, but price has to be taken in context too. I think that the price, when weighed against the value of the site, is very fair: this isnít cookie-cutter porn. This is all exclusive, with mostly top-name models, in a dungeon-like building and excellent production values. Kink has some of the highest production values of any porn company and this stuff canít be cheap to make. If price is an issue, be sure to sign up for emails from them because they occasionally offer membership deals. Also, once youíre a member of one Kink site you get discounts on the other sites. An element to the value debate is that Kink isnít a Ďnetwork.í Each specific site requires a separate membership. Given the high production values and exceptionally high quality of the scenes on all of the sites, I donít think this detracts from the value.

Device Bondage continues to do almost everything very well, and since I was last a member there have even been a few improvements. Even at full price the site is a great value if you like whatís offered.

Cons: - Photo zips are not of the full set (you need to download several zips to get the full shoot)
Bottom Line: Yes, I know this is my fourth review of this site but Iíll try to keep it interesting and informative.

Itís tough to compare PD to anything else on the internet. It seems to be in a class by itself. The same can be said for many Kink sites. They take a common BDSM niche and add a wrinkle to it that makes it more interesting. And they add in production values that are among the best in the business (I think they are the best, but I donít want to bait a reader for an argument).

As I write this there are 186 scenes posted with another one due today or tomorrow. One scene is added each week. The format is unchanged: the scenes can be roughly divided into two classes, those shot in the U.S. and those shot in Europe. The scenes shot in Europe really push the limits of public nudity, and I donít mean that in a negative sense. With some European countries not having the same hang-ups about nudity that we prudish North Americans do there is always a segment of the scene where the model is exposed, used and abused in a very public environment. One of the elements that, for me, makes public nudity alluring is seeing the publicís reaction. Sites that edit that out, or make the nudity seem commonplace lose, in my opinion, all the heat. That isnít the case with PDís European shoots. Even though these scenes are shot in places where public nudity doesnít have passersby running to the nearest policeman or priest, PD is able to get the heat level up and keep it up. One of the usual reactions, which I think adds to the heat, is that people pull out their cellphones and start taking pictures. Maybe Iím weird (okay, thatís almost certain) but that adds a lot to the realism and heat in these scenes.

The U.S. scenes used to be mostly shot in Kinkís location in San Francisco. These are hot too, but the public element comes from bringing the public in to the Armories where the environment is controlled rather than taking the model out to the public. This is obviously safer, but in the past while Kink has become more daring in their American shoots. They arenít Ďpublicí in the same sense as the European scenes, but they are occur in more Ďpublicí spaces like bars and sex shops where access can be controlled. There are some truly public shoots, such as a scene shot partially at the Folsom Street Fair which probably pushes the limits for American tolerance.

PD has a great variety of models. Youíd expect given the nature of the site that it would have mostly fetish models who are known for this kind of work, but there are a number of U.S. and European porn stars who make an appearance too. (The scene with Jada Stevens in a gas station is worth the membership fee itselfÖ) Iím not too sure about some of the European models as I donít follow many of them, but Iím assuming that many of them are popular porn stars. One constant is even though there is a variety of body types among the models they are all beautiful. I suspect that PD is able to attract well-known and beautiful models is in no small part a testament to Kinkís reputation for quality.

One possible downside for some people (though I donít list this as a con since it is so subjective) is that the male talent tends to be the same in each scene. Thatís no issue for me, but if you happen to not like Steve Holmes, Mark Davis or James Deen then this may detract from the site.

Being a Kink site, the technical stuff is well done. Each scene offers a trailer, photos and video. Video is available as a stream or downloadable as a WMV (HD), WMV, MP4 (HD) and in sizes for mobile devices. I downloaded the WMV HD scenes and they come in at 1280x720 at 7200kb/s and 30fps. Theyíre in Codec 9. Subjectively they look great.

The photos are available in two resolutions (800x533 and 1200x800). Theyíre available as singles or zipped. The one thing that I think Kink could do better is offer the entire series of photos as a single zip. Iím not sure why, but they break the scene into sub-scenes and offer zips of each of those. I have no issue with that (though I donít understand why they do it) but they should offer the full set as one zip too.

The subjects of degradation and humiliation come up on the forums and in comments here a lot and tend to be almost universally panned by PU members. For people who like BDSM and know Kink.com, this isnít news, but for those who donít know them, this is BDSM done right. People like Max Hardcore and the lads at Facial Abuse degrade and humiliate women for their own pleasure. Kink, including PD, degrade and humiliate women for the womanís pleasure and their pleasure is obvious whether a non-submissive understands that or not.

The bottom line is that PD isnít for everyone, but if you like BDSM in a public environment this is pretty much your only option. The good news is that even though PD is in a class of one, the site is excellent and is an excellent value. I highly recommend a membership.

Pros: - Approximately 800 videos
- Over 1000 photo sets
- Photos zipped
- Each scene usually has a video and a photo set
- Excellent mix of material (solo, girl/girl, b/g, some multiples, vaginal, anal, toy play, peeing, fisting, indoor, outdoor)
- Naturally beautiful models (some natural imperfections)
- Not a lot of variation in models Ė Caucasian, young, petite. Some larger breasts, but most smaller, proportional (Iím listing this as a pro because I share the siteís taste in women. If you prefer a different look, it might be a con for you.)
- TBP/PU discount
- Excellent value
- Updates daily
- Some photo sets in HD, most lower res
- Helpful webmaster
- Photos and videos are well done Ė well lit, sound is good
- Models arenít heavily made up Ė naturally beautiful
- Didnít have timeouts with download manager
Cons: - Download speeds can be slow sometimes
- Some trouble with Free Download manager, but it seems to be resolved and no one else reported it
- Wish the scene names included the model name
Bottom Line: This site has been getting some attention lately, with a review just last week, so I hope I can add some new information to whatís already here.

I have no idea why I had never heard of this site before because it is large and very well done. It offers a great value at the TBP/PU discount price. I went into it thinking it was a mostly solo girl site but I was wrong. Unlike many other sites that might claim this, this site really does offer something for just about everyone. There are solo, g/g, multiples, toys, b/g, anal, peeing, fisting, indoor and outdoor scenes. One consistency is the models Ė they are almost all young, Caucasian (Easter European and Russian) and petite. There are a few models with larger breasts, but the majority are petite and proportional. Not all models do g/g or b/g. The site has material for about 300 models. Some of those have only a handful of scenes / sets, but many have a large library.

Each scene usually has a video and a photoset with it, but this site splits material with other sites on its network so the photos may be here and the video on 18 Only Girls, or the other way around.

Videos are offered as WMV (Codec 9) and mp4. WMVs are usually offered in one resolution with 720p being the most common. Older videos are obviously lower. There are some scenes at 1080p. Mp4s are usually offered in three resolutions with the highest usually being 720p, though there are some with 1080p. Bitrates are very high, with most over 10,000kb/s. File sizes can be large with most being near 1GB, but there are some that are bigger than 2GB. Obviously, selecting a lower res will reduce the size. There are about 800 videos on the site now, most average between 20 to 30 mins. Subjectively, the videos look clear and crisp. Lighting and sound are very professional. This is not an amateur operation.

Photos are also available and are usually shot on the same set as the videos. The photos are usually offered in multiple resolutions. While there are some at 2666x4000, most arenít that high. Subjectively, they look good, with the higher res looking the best, obviously. Zips are offered. Number of photos per set varies.

The site updates daily with a new video or photoset being added. Some days see two updates.

There is a search function (though I didnít find it all that accurate), and each scene has links to themes. You can also sort by model.

For me, the big selling point of this site has to be the models. Iím usually more into U.S. models doing mainstream hardcore, so this site was a real eye-opener for me. The models are stunning. They are all naturally beautiful and many have slight imperfections that donít get hidden, which makes them more appealing. Makeup is understated too. Some of the models have a unique look Ė wholesome even. Whoever lines up the talent deserves a pay raise.

There is a TBP/PU discount offered, and you can buy a membership to this site or for an additional $10 you can add the whole Ďnetwork.í I strongly recommend spending that extra $10 for two reasons. It makes the membership an excellent value, and the same models appear on the other sites so if you like a particular model youíll be leaving material behind without access to the other sites. The other sites are Ivana Fukalot, Skinny Super Girl, 18 Only Girls (this is the other large site here), Alice Wonder Bang, Lay the Kat, Sasha Fucks Dasha, Natasha Shy, Vika Nymph, Sasha Blonde, Beata Porn, Kamilla 18, The Sperm Lover and Policeman. Iíll post some stats and a brief review as a comment on some of those that might help you decide whether you want to get full access.

The site isnít perfect, but it is close. This may be nitpicking, but I wish the scene / set names included the model name. These models are all new to me it was frustrating to see a model I like and not know who she is. I resolved that by being careful to catalogue them by model, but some indication would be helpful.

I also had some membership problems that you can read in the comments, but those were all resolved thanks to a helpful webmaster. And to be fair, with most of those issues it seemed to be only me who had the problems.

If the site has an Achilles heel, it is that many PU members report that download speeds can drop during peak times. I experienced that too. From a comment made by the webmaster, it sounds like the problem is with their third-party network supplier and not the site.

The site is technically very well done. It looks good and it isnít overly busy. Itís simple, and I mean that as a compliment. The material on the site is also well done. And the models are some of the most beautiful women Iíve ever seen. Not only would I highly recommend this site to anyone who likes models who look like this, Iím going one step further: this will be a site that I come back to regularly.

Pros: - Huge collection of titles (close to 60,000)
- Affiliated with Adult DVD Empire Ė a company with a long history and good reputation
- Various options for viewing or downloading (PPM, download and stream)
- Two or three (depending on the age of the title) quality options
- Speeds are up to industry standards
- Excellent customer service
Cons: - Can be an expensive way to collect titles
- Limited search capabilities
- Least expensive option (1 day rental) is streaming only
- Web name is very similar to a blacklisted site
Bottom Line: First a quick warning: this site is Adult Empire.com. Donít confuse it with Adult Empire which has been blacklisted here at PU. That confusing name is unfortunate since this PPV/VOD site is very good.

I have a love/hate relationship with PPV/VOD sites. On the love side, a site that offers a lot of titles is an excellent opportunity to view titles that arenít available anywhere else. On the hate side, they can be like crack for the pornuser in that you only get a quick fix and then have to dig out your wallet again.

PPV/VOD sites arenít like other porn sites. They donít offer exclusive material, and unlike sites like Videobox, you have to pay for everything you watch. So why bother? Because a good PPV/VOD will have a huge number of titles that arenít usually available elsewhere,. Itís a great option to see some titles that you otherwise wouldnít have access to.

This site is relatively new and appears to be a spin-off of Adult DVD Empire. I say that because my wish list at the older site was migrated to the new site. But the old site still offers PPV/VOD, and some of the titles are the same on the two sites though the new site has better pricing options. Of the PPV/VOD sites I use, my favorite has always been Adult DVD Empire, and the new site offers all the same quality and variety at a price that is often lower.

As with most PPV/VOD sites, there are many options available depending on how you want to view the title. You have a pay-per-minute option, the option to buy a download (most with no DRM) and then there is a streaming rental option. The big advantage that this site offers is a one day streaming rental for just $1.99. If youíre familiar with PPV/VOD sites youíll know this is a great deal. My preference would be a one day download rental, but thatís just a personal preference.

There are negatives, but to be fair, I suspect that most of those are beyond the control of the site. What the site can control is generally great. The one big flaw is the lack of an advanced search function. The parent site has a great search function, so why that wasnít just migrated over is beyond me. What the site canít control (I suspect) is what studios will do business with them, and what those studios will charge to the site. Many studios offer decent pricing, but a few (Iím looking at you, Jules Jordan) seem to think that their material is worth a lot more than other stuff. Obviously the site has to pass those costs on. But as a consumer, I can just choose to not pay those high prices. (Up yours, Jules!)

PPV/VOD sites have their limitations, but if you really want to see a title that isnít available elsewhere, this may be an option. If it is an option, Iíd recommend starting at this site because the rental prices can be very low. There may be lower prices at other PPV/VOD sites, but unless the price difference is huge Iíd recommend doing business with this site as the quality is excellent.

Pros: - A very unique niche
- Part of the Kink.com network
- Over 500 scenes
- Updates several times a week
- Multiple download options
- Pictures available (individual or zipped)
- Fast download speeds (1.4MB/sec on a single download)
- Interesting mix of amateurs, BDSM models and mainstream porn models
- Excellent value
Cons: Can get a bit repetitive
Bottom Line: I realize that Device Bondage might not be for everyone, but if you have a bondage interest this is an excellent site. The siteís claim to fame is that they donít use traditional rope bondage, but, as the name suggests, they use a variety of other means to bind the models. The most common is a set of pipes and clamps that can be used in countless ways. It all makes for quite a unique site.

Most of the scenes follow an effective formula: first there is an interview (to make it abundantly clear that there is full consent Ė this isnít Max Hardcore). Then they move to a bondage scene with some S+M thrown in. Usually a second bondage and S+M scene follows. At some point there will be forced orgasms. Finally, the scene closes with another interview. The basic formula is also followed where there are multiple models.

As of this review, there are now well over 500 scenes on the site. They continue to update several times a week. Adding the uniqueness and creativity on the site to the volume of material makes this site an excellent value.

On the tech side, this site meets the high standards of all other Kink.com sites. There are both HD and SD wmv files, an HD mp4 and a format for IPods. You can download the entire scene as one file in the listed formats, or you can download it in segments. Pictures are also available individually or as a zipped set.

My only two criticisms of this site are subjective. First, at its core, this is really a non-sex site. Mostly the only sex is forced orgasms on the models while in bondage. This is excellent stuff, but it isnít something that Iím really into. Kink.com has sites, like Sex and Submission that are more to my liking. Second, Iíd really like to see the women being bound, either as part of the scene or part of a behind-the-scenes view. All the scenes start with an interview, and then move immediately to the model in bondage. Please Kink, add some BTS here!

Finally, the listed price may seem high, but consider the cost and effort that goes into the site when deciding to join. This site doesnít hire a male a female and stick them in a bedroom setting to fuck. There is a lot of creativity that goes into these scenes. It is definitely a good value at full price. Having said that, there are ways to avoid paying full price. Kink.com usually offers a discount on a second site and having memberships to two Kink.com sites isnít a bad thing. Also, register as a Kink.com member (free) and get on their mailing list. They regularly email special offers and deals on this and other Kink sites.

The bottom line is that this is an excellent niche site. It is unique, it is creative and it exceeds industry norms for the technical stuff. If you have an interest in BDSM, you owe it to yourself to have a look.

Pros: - Kink.com is among the best (if not the best)BDSM provider on the internet
- Very user-friendly Ė easy to navigate and download
- Part of a larger network of BDSM sites
- All exclusive videos
- Excellent value for the monthly fee
- Discount access to other sites on the network
- Excellent customer service
- Regular updates
- 77 scenes as of this review
- Multiple options for downloading video
- Pictures available
Cons: None. There is nothing I would change about this site.
Bottom Line: I wouldnít normally write a review so close on the heels of another member doing so, and especially since I agree with most of what Pat362 wrote, but I want to add some details.

First, as Pat362 also noted, this site isnít for everyone. Everything Butt is an anal-themed site on a wheelbarrow full of steroids. Kink.com is a network well known for its BDSM-themed material, and this site adds a BDSM element to anal play. For someone like me, who is a dedicated, lifetime ass man, and a fan of BDSM, this site is pure gold.

One thing this site is not is an anal sex site. This isnít like Ass Traffic where the focus is on anal sex. Everything Butt is a site about extreme anal play. Featured here are enemas, bondage, strap-ons, fingers, fists and some very large toys. Only on rare occasions do we see a male get to join in the fun for some anal sex. Men appear more often as in control of the situation rather than as active sexual participants. In some of the scenes there are women solo, administering their own enemas, using toys on themselves, and sometimes fisting themselves. In the remainder of the scenes, there are multiple women with at least one taking the Dominant role over the other(s).

As Pat362 noted, there are several models who appear a number of times. Pat362 considers this a bit of a negative, and part of me agrees with this, but not all of me. When the repeat models are stars like Bobbi Starr, Amber Rayne, Dana DeArmond and Felony Ė all certified anal queens Ė I canít really complain. To see a model like Amber Rayne, who is always on her game, enjoying some really intense anal play is a sight to behold. Iíd rather see a model who is capable of the intensity of the play than a model who canít rise to the occasion. I think in fairness to Pat362 Iíd say that I agree that while there are several models who appear a lot on the site, the scenes are different enough that it doesnít get boring.

Everything Butt is part of the Kink.com network of sites, so everything Iíve written about them before also applies here. I think that Kink.com is probably the best porn company on the internet. The variety of their work, the inventiveness and uniqueness that they bring to their sites, the size of their sites, the value, and their customer service are all second to none. All of that is on display at Everything Butt.

I also agree with Pat362 that the pictures arenít perfect, but I think that is due to the fact that this site and other Kink sites are more video oriented. I suspect that the photos are secondary, and this may be because there is no way that a photo can convey the intensity of some of these scenes.

If youíre an ass man, and like to dabble a bit on the dark side of BDSM, you owe it to yourself to check out this site.

Pros: This is the mother of all video sites
Like having an adult video shop right in your home
Wide variety of videos available to suit almost all tastes
Many studios are represented
You can download a whole scene or just take a custom made clip
Cons: Get a bigger harddrive - you'll need it unless you have good self-control
Bottom Line: I've been a member for approximately 3 years and have no plans to leave any time soon. Sure, not all the videos are to my taste, but I can live with that. If you join now there are so many videos that you'll be busy for weeks if not months. On top of that every 5 hours a new video is posted. Sure, Videobox has people who complain, but most of the complaints are that once in a while a video gets posted that they don't like so they have to wait. Big deal. There's enough here to keep anyone happy for a long time.

This site is HIGHLY recommended

Pros: - Large site
- Updates regularly
- Good variation in body types
- Variation in level of tattoos and piercings
- Class-leading video quality in newer videos
- Many download options
- Streaming available (with options)
- Supports download managers
- Fans of Joanna Angel should definitely join Ė lots to see
- TBP discount
Cons: - No zips for pics
Bottom Line: The first time I joined this site I surprised even myself as Iím not a big fan of tattoos and piercings. Or so I thought.

The site seems to be quite a bit different now than the last time I reviewed it. Back in 2009 when dracken commented on it, and even as recently as a year ago when I reviewed it, the site had a Ďcommunityí feel to it, like it wasnít necessarily a professional porn site but a site owned and run by people into this lifestyle. (That was and still is highlighted by the obvious connection that Joanna Angel has with this site. Any of her fans NEED to get a membership here.) The site still has that feel to it with the blogs, a forum, event listings and chats, but it is clearly more Ďprofessionalí now.

The last time I reviewed the site it was broken down into several sub-sites. Those are listed in my previous review if youíre interested in seeing what those were. Those divisions seem to be gone now in favor of putting all the videos up on the main page and relying on a pull-down menu to sort by niche. This may be a personal thing, but I prefer the new way: all the scenes are right there and there are convenient ways to sort by star or niche.

The site is part of the Fame Digital family of sites. In my opinion, Fame has the porn Midas touch in that they nail the Holy Trinity for porn sites: the porn is incredibly hot with high production values, the site is well organized, and the porn is easy to access for streaming or downloads. The only caveat with Fame is that you need to track which of their billing companies you paid through because youíll need to know that when it comes time to cancel.

Another way the site is different now is that they use a look more common to other Fame sites: the scene thumbnail opens into a page where all your options for streaming and downloads are in sub-menus. If youíre familiar with any of Fameís sites youíll realize that this is both intuitive and easy to use. Also like other Fame sites, this one offers some of the widest choices for streaming and downloads. Other porn companies need to copy this. The oldest videos on the site date from 2008 and are available for download in either WMV or MP4 in 160p, 240p, 360p and 480p. Obviously these arenít great, but they look okay and they were great when they were uploaded. The really good news, however, is that like most Fame sites, this site jumped into HD early: videos uploaded as early as mid-2009 offer both 720p and 1080p in MP4 format. This was way ahead of the curve for most adult sites in 2009. The icing on the cake is that however fame encodes its scenes, in either 720 or 1080 they look amazing. Some sites offer 1080 that still looks pixilated. Please Fame, if youíre reading this please offer encoding lessons to other sites. Or just buy them out.

I downloaded the 1080p versions and those come in at 1980x1280 and 6800kb/s bitrate.

The site currently has 719 scenes of varying length. The scenes run the gamut from solo, POV, b/g, group, g/g, anal; in other words, just what youíd expect from an adult site. The models also have some variation so depending on the look you like youíre apt to find lots to satisfy you. The site updates frequently and regularly with several scenes being added weekly.

If the site has one glaring fault itís that pics are still not offered in zips. I know this is primarily a video site, but for those who like to collect photos of their favorite models it would be a good idea to offer zips.

Download managers are supported and like other Fame sites this one has resolved the issue of short-duration time-outs. Links donít last forever, but they will last about an hour and that is a huge improvement over what was offered even a year ago.

So that leaves dealing with the 800lb gorilla in the room: that the models donít sport a mainstream look. If that is an absolute deal-breaker for you, then there is no way youíd like this site. If, however, you have even a remote interest in this niche then I highly recommend checking this site out. The models are all really beautiful and but for the tattoos and piercings they look like the beautiful models that work in other parts of the porn industry. There are varying levels of body modifications too: not all the models are heavily tattooed and pierced; some are very light on both. Katie St. Ives, for example, is on this site and I doubt many would consider her a niche model.

The bottom line is that just in the past year this site has made some changes that, while subtle, have made a great site even better. Itís a large and growing site that offers excellent quality (in production values and in how they look on your monitor or TV) at a discounted price and features unique-but-beautiful models. Whatís not to like? I highly recommend joining.

Pros: - Large collection of DVDs / scenes
- 23 Ďsitesí
- Many top models
- Videos offered in multiple resolutions
- Supports download managers
- Increased time-out on links
- True HD looks excellent
- Updates regularly
Cons: - Not a true network
- Membership can be tricky to cancel
- Update schedule can be confusing
- Updates loaded to more than one site
- Updates are available only as streaming for a few days before allowing downloads
Bottom Line: Many of the opinions and details I wrote in my earlier review are still valid, but after re-subscribing to this site several times since I think it deserves a new review and a higher score.

The first thing to point out is that while this collection of sites is billed as a network, it really isnít in the true sense of the word. This Ďnetworkí would work just as well, and probably better, if they just had one large site. Arguing against their classification as a network is the fact that each site isnít updated individually but a DVD is added regularly and added to one or several of the sites where that genre fits. That means that an update can often be found on several of the sites, and it also means that some of the sites only get rare updates.

The Ďnetworkí is a group of 23 sites many of which cater to a specific niche. I included a list in my last review and that is pretty much still accurate though there have been a few sites added since.

I canít really pin down the update schedule as updates are added to the individual sites and canít be tracked as overall network updates. Adding to the confusion is that an update might be added to several sites at the same time.

This site (like the other Fame Digital sites) updates by allowing streaming only for several days. Iím sure they have a good reason for updating this way, but as a subscriber who prefers to download it can be a bit annoying to have to check back regularly to see if a scene you want has been unlocked for downloading.

One big change for the network since I last reviewed it is worth noting. In the past a complaint I had with all of Fame Digitalís sites was that while they allowed download managers those were difficult to use since the links timed out quickly. All the Fame Digital sites Iíve subscribed to in the past few months now have much longer time outs on the links. I canít say how long for certain, but they seem to be at least an hour before they time out.

A negative to any Fame site now is that theyíve made cancelling your membership more difficult. For anyone subscribing to any Fame site I strongly recommend that you keep your email confirmation as it will identify the link you need to follow to cancel. I just cancelled two Fame memberships and each had to be cancelled through a different site. To cancel you need to enter your username and password and a captcha. That seems insignificant, but the cancel process is more involved than it needs to be. I canít imagine why Fame has chosen this because so many of their sites are so good that Iím sure they get a lot of repeat customers. I should also point out that while cancelling a membership a few weeks ago the cancel sites werenít working and I had to use online chat. That worked fine, but the process took about 15 minutes.

This network, like all Fame sites, now offers everything they upload in HD. They list it as 1080, 720 and 540. I used to prefer WMV files and that meant that I couldnít download true HD scenes since those are only available as mp4s. Iíve since switched to mp4 and since Iím a big fan of a lot of the directors and actresses here I downloaded the best quality they had to offer. Those come in at 1920x1080 at 7,000 kb/s and 30fps. The downside is that the files are large, with some topping out over 3GB. The trade-off is that a lot of the scenes are long, running nearly an hour, and the video quality is incredible. This is among the best video quality Iíve ever encountered. Iíve seen other sites that have the same specs, but the videos arenít nearly as crisp as these. However theyíre encoded, Fame Digital is doing it right.

Members should note that there is some overlap with this network and the Evil Angel site. That can be bad if you have a membership to both, but it can also be good in that if youíre looking for a specific title you can check both sites because it may be uploaded earlier to one site than the other.

The network allows prospective members to see everything that is available, but the preview pages donít allow you to sort by DVD title, only by scene. Once youíve joined there is the option to sort by DVD.

A pro or con (depending on how you feel about this) is that once you subscribe to a Fame site youíre on their mailing list. The bad news is that youíll get a lot of email from them, but the good news is that youíll get a lot of good offers. This network offers a TBP/PU discount, but many of the email offers were for a lower price than that.

The bottom line is that this is an excellent collection of sites that gives easy access to what they have. Download speeds are good, and there are a range of resolutions available including some top notch video quality. Much of what is offered here is harder than some PU members like, and anal sex is featured in a lot of whatís offered, but if you like high quality porn with some of the top female talent working in porn today you canít go wrong here.

Pros: - Huge collection of DVDs
- Many top studios
- TBP / PU discount
- Supports download mangers (with some limitations)
- None of the studios on the site are low-grade
- Something for most tastes
- Some unique and rare niches represented
- Many viewing and download options
- Many ways to sort the scenes
Cons: - Some overlap with other Fame sites
- Links time-out too quickly
- Too many older scenes donít list the female talent
- No search function
Bottom Line: Iíve really liked and highly recommended most (if likely all) of the Fame sites that Iíve reviewed and Fame Digital is no exception. This site offers a huge amount of high-quality porn for an amazing price.

For readers not familiar with any of the Fame sites, they offer DVD downloads from several major studios like Devilís Film, Silverstone and Evil Angel. The same studios are represented here and there is some overlap with other Fame sites but unless youíve recently been a member at several Fame sites youíre still going to find a lot of material here that wasnít on the other sites.

The main page is simple and effective: you have a choice of displaying the available scenes by individual scenes or by DVD. There is a drop-down menu listing all the DVDs on the site and ability to sort by the usual porn themes. You can also view by studio or by model. There are a lot of options for sorting the huge amount of material here, but there is no way to specifically search for anything: there is no search function available. While this is certainly a shortcoming, the many different options for sorting minimize the need to search. In most cases you can still find what you want but you may need to use a few more steps than with just an effective search function.

The site currently has over 3350 DVDs. My thought is that a lot of sites that try to please all tastes generally fail, but this site offers a wide variety of porn but still remains appealing. Youíll find all the usual porn niches here, like legal teens, anal, lesbian, etc., but youíll also find a pretty substantial collection of transsexual and bisexual material. Youíll also find rarer niches like pegging and Ďgrandmas.í Iím not into the niches that I just mentioned so I canít really give an opinion, but if youíre specifically looking for some of them this site has them, but they arenít the main attraction here. The site is by far a conventional site that just happens to have some different Ďspicesí if youíre so inclined. (And if youíre like me and not so inclined, there arenít enough of these niche DVDs that you feel cheated.) As for the more conventional porn, it runs the gamut from hard-hardcore (like Rocco Siffredi) to Ďartcoreí (from the Daring Film studio.) Regardless of what your tastes are all the DVDs I downloaded have one thing in common: the production values are second to none in the industry. Unlike other sites that seem to promote quantity over quality, Fame Digital doesnít rely on Ďfiller.í

One thing I especially liked about the site was the availability of older series and titles. Obviously the download options are fewer for these older scenes, but just having access to them is a big plus.

Like other Fame sites, there is no shortage of viewing options. Streaming is available in multiple resolutions, downloads are available in two formats (WMV and mp4) and in multiple resolutions. Obviously the resolution options are fewer with older material, but most of the newer DVDs offer the scenes in up to four WMV resolutions and up to 7(!!) mp4 resolutions Ė and thatís not counting separate downloads for mobile devices which offer a further number of resolutions. Many of the newer scenes offer both 720p and 1080p. Also on offer for newer scenes is 540p, which the site calls ďWeb HD.Ē This is an excellent option for people like me who watch most of their porn on a monitor. This is higher than the 480p that most sites offer (and is still offered here) without having to download a large 720p file. The 540p files come in at 960x540 at 1800kb/s and 30fps. The 720p come in at 1280x720 at 4800 and 30fps.

The site does offer photos but this is definitely NOT a photo site. The photos are shot during the scenes (but arenít screencaps) and look good, but the main (unforgivable) flaw is that there are no zips.

The site isnít perfect but the flaws are so insignificant that they donít detract from the value. Like all Fame sites, download managers are supported but the links time-out fairly quickly so it isnít possible to queue up a lot of files at once. Older titles often donít list any performers, and with many of the European titles (like Roccoís stuff) the female talent isnít always credited. There may be three girls in a scene but only one name is given. Minor, but still annoying.

The one flaw that I think really does detract from the site is that they frequently donít upload all the scenes from a DVD. In one case, for example, Tanner Mayes is the cover girl but her scene isnít available. (And Fame, I take that as a personal insult!)

The bottom line is that this is an exceptionally good value for the TBP/PU discounted price (and still good without it). This is a huge amount of high quality porn on a site with a simple but effective layout with multiple viewing and download options. I highly recommend joining. I know Iíll be back.

Pros: - Unique site
- Beautiful models from around the world
- Videos and photos
- Videos available in multiple formats and resolutions
- Photos available in zips and in multiple resolutions
- HD available in most scenes (as high as 1080)
- Great mix of solo, girl/girl and boy/girl hardcore
- Currently 139 models
- Supports download managers (with no obvious time-outs)
- Site updates regularly
- Might appeal to couples
- Bills through CC Bill
Cons: - No search function or tags (please see comment on that below)
- BTS videos canít be downloaded
Bottom Line: X-Art isnít a site that Iíd normally join because I prefer porn that has a harder edge to it, so I was pleasantly surprised that I liked this site as much as I did. The site has that elusive combination of stunning models, excellent technical elements and a user-friendly website. Many sites get two of those components right but few have them all. Iím convinced that the sites that do get everything right do so because of site owners / webmasters who actually care about the material theyíre producing and putting on their site.

The site currently has 139 models. Most of those models have both videos and photos but there are a few who only do photos. Many donít have a lot of material available but there are a few who have lots of material so it balances out.

There isnít a lot of variety in the models; theyíre all Caucasian (with one or two Asians), young (18-25) and thin (but not skinny). This isnít a problem if, like me, you happen to like the type of models that the site selects, but if you prefer fuller-figured women or different races youíll not be as happy with the site. There is a mix of nationalities too.

The models are naturally beautiful, not the airbrushed, heavily made-up models that many other sites feature. Unique features like freckles are allowed to shine through, giving even more appeal.

The site has many things going for it, but one thing that really sets them apart is the chemistry between the models in the lesbian and b/g hardcore scenes. The chemistry is obvious because it exists, and also because it doesnít exist in most other sites. In most other sites the overriding feeling that the viewer gets is that here are two people being paid to have sex. Obviously the models here are also being paid, but they seem to be into the sex too. This is an assumption, but Iíll give credit to the models themselves and to the site staff who obviously play a role in creating and then capturing that chemistry. The chemistry in the scenes likely makes this a couples-friendly site.

The site offers lots of choice on how you can download or view the material. Videos can be streamed and downloaded. All videos have multiple options for downloads, though those vary depending on when the video was uploaded. The scenes are always available in WMV and Quicktime formats with lower resolutions for mobile devices being added more recently. WMVs and Quicktime videos are available in 960x540 and 1280x720 (5,000+ kbps) and in newer videos theyíre also available in 1920x1080 (8500+ kbps). I download the WMVs and theyíre in codec 7 and 30 fps. The videos are relatively short with the average being 10 to 12 minutes. A previous comment noted that these are too short, but I donít agree with that. The videos have a natural feel to them which lends itself to the shorter format. Subjectively, the videos look great.

The photos are also available in different resolutions Ė 1200, 2000 and 4000 pixels. Theyíre available as zips. The number of photos per set varies from a low of 30+ to a high of 120+ but the average set has about 80 photos in it.

The site updates daily on weekdays with either a video or photo set being added.

The site allows download managers (I use Free Download Manager) and there are no obvious timeouts.

An interesting feature is the use of original music in many of the scenes. Normally music isnít something that Iíd notice, but the choices here really do add to the feel of the scenes.

There isnít really anything to complain about, but I do have a couple of minor issues. I like behind-the-scenes clips Ė especially on sites like this where it gives a chance to see more of the modelís personality. While BTS material is available here, and even has its own tab, I canít figure out how to download the clips. It appears that the only option is to stream them. Iím assuming that the site made a conscious decision to do this, but I wish theyíd make them available for download.

There isnít a search function available, nor are there tags. The videos can be sorted, however, depending on theme (solo, g/g, b/g). Normally Iíd criticize a site for such a glaring omission, but in this case Iím not. The reason for that is that the site seems to be focused solely on the models. I realize Iím making yet another assumption here, but it is possible that the site made a decision to not offer a search function or tags as a means of keeping the models more real. Thatís how it feels anyway Ė I appreciate stumbling on an incredible hardcore scene with a beautiful model and that makes me appreciate it more than if I could select ďshaved pussy,Ē ďhardcoreĒ and ďanal.Ē Or maybe Iím just over-thinking this.

The bottom line for me is that Iíd highly recommend a membership at X-art. If you like the type of model featured on the site it has a lot of varied material available for a great price. Not only would I recommend the site, but itís on my list of sites to join again.

Pros: - Affiliated with Diesel Access, so the same quality is here
- Videos and photos
- Amazing quality for both videos and photos
- Incredibly beautiful models
- Good mix of solo, masturbation, girl/girl and boy/girl hardcore
- Models do live shows
- Bills through CC Bill
Cons: - Site wonít remember your username / password even though that option is available
- Photo pages load the whole set as good resolution thumbnails so that takes a lot of bandwidth even if all you want to do is download the zip
- Photo sets wonít download with download manager (Free Download Manager specifically)
- Iím unsure about exclusivity though some of the models are definitely not exclusive to this site or related sites
- Not sold as part of the Diesel Access network
- Some overlap with other Diesel sites
Bottom Line: Wow Girls is obviously affiliated with Diesel Access (18 Only Girls, Young Legal Porn and more) so any comments made in reviews of those sites will apply here too. The layout is the same, the models are the same and there are even some scenes and photo sets that are on both sites. This site isnít part of that network so youíll only get access to this one site with your membership.

This site has many of the same models as found on the Diesel Access network. For some, that may be a negative, but given the comments about the models on other reviews I suspect that most people would agree with my opinion that these models are some of the most beautiful young women on the internet. The potential downside of this is that if you donít like the types of models that the site has then you obviously wonít like the site. The models are exclusively young (18-20), petite and (usually) small-breasted.

The site is relatively new so it is still small but it does update regularly so it will continue to grow. It updates daily with either a video or photo set added. Currently there are 48 models, 139 videos and 235 photo sets.

The site uses the same simple and effective layout as used by the Diesel sites. You can search using tags or keywords. Each of the models has a separate page to keep things simple.

Videos are available as either WMV or MPEG-4. In most scenes there are resolution options for the MPEG-4 ranging from lower resolution for mobile devices up to 1080p HD. The WMV files are usually only available in HD. The newest videos are at 1920x1080 at 7000+ kb/s and 30fps. They use WMV Codec 9. Subjectively they look amazing Ė theyíre incredibly crisp. The drawback to the high quality is that the file sizes can be large. A 20 minute video can be 2GB in size.

While photos make up more than half the site this really isnít a photo site. The photo sets are mostly shot as part of the videos. Most of the photo sets are available in multiple resolutions. Iím not a photo collector but I make an exception for many of these models. The highest resolutions are 3200x4800 and they look amazing.

The videos and photos are a great mix of solo, masturbation, b/g hardcore and g/g scenes. Thereís even some anal and peeing in the mix too.

There are some minor negatives and these may even come across as being petty, but they stick out a bit because the site is otherwise so well done. For starters, the site wonít remember your username and password even though that option is available. To make that worse, the password is randomly generated and assigned so youíll need to keep it handy. A pet peeve of mine is having videos stream automatically as the page loads. I dislike that because it needlessly sucks a lot of bandwidth. That doesnít occur here, to the siteís credit, but when you open a page for a photo set the page loads with some good quality thumbnails so that sucks a lot of bandwidth as it loads. Since the average user will probably be downloading the zip file I wish there was a way to access that zip without having all the thumbnails load. Speaking of downloading photos, for some reason using a download manager (Free Download Manager at least) doesnít work with the photos. It works great with the video sets (with no obvious timeouts) but for the photos I had to download them through the browser which is obviously slower. This was also the same for the Diesel Access sites too so it must be a quirk in how they set up the sites.

I canít speak to the exclusivity of the models, but I am aware that some of them have appeared (and do appear) on other sites, sometimes using different names. This isnít a good or bad thing unless youíre really into exclusivity.

Iím sure that most potential members would find the fact that this site isnít part of a network to be the biggest negative. It does impact on the sense of value that comes with the site. But considering that if this site were added to the Diesel network it would essentially be a free add-on. Porn of this quality canít be cheap to produce and Iím certainly willing to pay for material of this quality.

The models do live shows though I never viewed any of those. I presume (but stand to be corrected) that these are an additional cost. The live shows are recorded and those can be downloaded or streamed too.

This site, like its sister sites, does everything well. The models are stunningly beautiful and the people shooting the videos and photos are clearly professionals. The website provides an effective way to sort and download what you want. There are much bigger names in internet porn who could improve by following this site. I know that potential members might question the siteís value as it grows, but the quality is near perfect and Iíd highly recommend joining.

Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: - 240 videos
- Streaming and downloads available
- Updates with one video per week
- Pics offered (with zips)
- File names use the modelís name
- Male talent knows their role
- Excellent selection of lesser-known models
- Simple but effective site design
- Supports download managers
Cons: - Only one file type for download (wmv)
- Model name usually only includes her first name
- Only one anal scene
- Files added after May 2, 2009 start streaming when you open the link (make sure your sound is turned down!)
- Odd process wonít allow you to browse the site while downloading anything Ė you get a message that the server is down for maintenance
- No search function but can browse by model name and categories (tags)
- Not much variety
- Site name doesnít give clue of the specific niche
Bottom Line: Fucked Hard 18 is a single themed site, the theme being massages that end in sex. I learned I had an interest in this niche when I was a member of Massage Creep and have been looking for good massage sites since then. Thankfully several PU members recommended this site because the site name gives no indication of the theme.

The site started on December 29, 2008 and now has 240 videos posted. The site updates by adding one new video a week. For those who prefer files other than wmv format, youíre out of luck. Thatís all they offer for downloads. Streaming is also available. The files changed as of May 2, 2009. Prior to that there is only one resolution offered, 640x480 @1200 kb/s. After that date two resolutions are offered for downloads, 1260x720 @ 3200kb/s and 1000x564 @1600kb/s. Streaming is unchanged. All files use wmv codec 9 and play at 30fps. Subjectively, both versions look good. One word of caution for the post-May 2009 videos Ė selecting the link opens to a new page (as happens with the pre-May videos too) and when the page loads the video starts streaming. This is a pet peeve of mine as it hogs bandwidth and can be an unpleasant surprise for anyone who forgets to turn their speakers off. Webmasters: please donít do this!

All scenes run from approximately 35 mins to just under an hour.

A potential problem with single-themed sites like this is that the scenes can be repetitive. That criticism can be directed at FH18 because the only thing that changes in the scenes is the girl. The setup is pretty much identical in every scene: the camera opens on a long view of a massage table, the girl walks in, usually by the camera so we can see her ass, she sits on the table and waits for the masseur to come in. He comes in, they introduce themselves. The setup is that she has been selected for a free massage because they are filming a training video. The girl gets naked, gets on the table and the massage begins. One thing I really like is that the masseur (who is the same in all the scenes) uses lots of oil.

One aspect of the scenes that I wish was different is what happens before the sex starts. I think Massage Creep does the setup better. MC has the masseur introduce himself to the girl and then he leaves the room while the girl gets undressed and slips under a sheet on the table. The camera acts as sort of a Peeping Tom while this is going on and the masseur peeks in too. Then the massage starts and it is played straight for a while before it becomes sexualized. With FH18 the masseur is in the room as the girl undresses and gets on the table. The massage quickly becomes sexualized with the masseur deliberately going for the naughty bits very quickly.

There is almost no variety in the scenes. There is only one anal scene, one lesbian scene, and one or two scenes with two girls. Model types are almost exclusively young, petite and natural. There are a few Ďenhancedí girls, but not that many, and only a few sport a lot of ink.

Two things take this site from ordinary to extraordinary:

1) The models are stunning. The models are mostly Ďporn starsí in that most of them have a listing on IAFD, but they arenít Ďbigí stars in that they usually only have a handful of titles to their credit. Some A-listers do appear. While I like most of the A-listers, it is refreshing to see some models that I donít know. (One beef is that while the site uses the model name in the scene name, they only use her first name. That can be frustrating with some obscure models with relatively common stage names like ĎAmberí or ĎNatalie.í Iíd prefer her full name so I can source more if I want.)

2) The male talent and crew know how to make good porn. The guy in the scene does an excellent job of never getting in the way or trying to upstage the girl. The cameraman and male talent clearly understand that the scene is about the girl, not the guy. They both do their best to show the girl off. Many other websites could learn a lesson from these guys.

Pictures are available, but this isnít a picture site so they are really just an afterthought. Zips are available. Resolutions on newer pics are good at 996x1500.

The site itself is simple, but it doesnít need to be complex. There are multiple pages of scenes and you can sort by model and categories.

There are four bonus sites and several ĎDVDí sites offered with the membership but those are streaming only.

One annoyance is that you canít browse the site while downloading. Attempting to do so gives you a blank screen with a message that the server is down for service.

Overall, this is a site that is really better than I expected. The single theme and the lack of variety would suggest a lower score, but the amazing models and the siteís ability to show them off to their best without the guy ever upstaging the girl pushes the site beyond the average. I highly recommend this site.
