Pros: - Lots of top models, including Audrey Leigh and Julie Night
- Big archive of scenes dating back to 2004
- All scenes are downloadable& fast downloads (>1MB/sec)
- Zip file option for all picture sets
- No DRM
Cons: - Older videos are 320 x 240 RM and broken into 15 or so clips per update
- All scenes, including newer ones, must be downloaded in parts
- Highest quality for new scenes is 640 x 480 WMV, which is not very high
- High price
- Only weekly updates
Bottom Line: I should probably be used to over-paying for fetish/BDSM content, but it still pains me to fork over $30 a month. In particular, I hoped to have access to the site's archive and download past scenes. This is possible, but after the 5th or 6th RM file, I gave up. These older movies really need to be re-encoded and reposted, especially since new scenes only come 1 per week.

My other complaint deals with the separation of movies and pictures: there isn't any! You have to click through each gallery (often 5-8 per scene) and hunt down the 5 or so movie clips for that scene. If I wanted to download pictures, this makes sense, but if I only want the movies, why make me click through each one? Why not put a movies gallery in each scene?

The site earned its really low rating based on my rating criteria which heavily weights update frequency, ability to download movies in 1 file part, and archive size. While the site scored well on archive size, it really bombed out on update frequency and movie downloads.

If you enjoy BDSM content, I think that there are better sites out there, like Fucked and Bound and Sex and Submission. If you are really tired of those and you have an extra $30 to blow, try Society SM.

Jay G (65) Good review. I've always seen Society Sm's ads as a much poorer quality (especially the photography) than Kink.com or Fucked & Bound, Chanta's Bitches, etc. .....

and even though I was tempted, I kept putting off joining and joined many other sites instead. Your review confirms what I suspected. The poor camera work on their preview indicates what's inside. Thanks!

By the way, if you like spanking and red assed cute girls at about $20/mo, I found a bargain site called "Dallas Spanks Hard". No sex, though, only good, hard spanking.

IMHO once per week is definitely not bad for this kind of content. Same SexAndSumbission and FuckedAndBound you're referring to have 1 update per week too (SexAndSumbission sometimes gives "BONUS UPDATES" out of schedule but they're as they sound - irregular bonus updates once in a while). Or "Society SM" has it less frequent than once a week?

My quote refers to my scoring rubric. On a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being daily updates, I scored Society SM a 5 for weekly updates.

I agree that this update schedule is about the same for all of these types of sites, but IMHO all of them could update more frequently (even 2 scenes per week would be a great improvement).

Thanks for the comment.

Sure it would be, but (taking into account that NOBODY does it for this niche) is it realistic to expect it? Among other things, it would increase their cost 2-fold but will it bring them 2x more customers? I doubt so.

That's where I think we have two different viewpoints. I don't think that it would cost 2x more because of economies of scale.

I do think it will increase their customers. Maybe not double their customers, but it should be enough to offset any increases in costs. I have to imagine that they are making pretty good money charging $30/month right now, too.
