Pros: - Exceptionally beautiful and sexy star in Lucy

- Good range of scenarios in the videos and pics (from simply admiring Lucy's rubber-clad or tied-up body through to full sexual activity with male and female co-stars)

- Videos are good quality (1280 x 960 for latest clips)

- high-res pictures

- a good quantity of material with regular updates
Cons: - videos are DRM protected

- videos do not seem to be Mac compatible? (see below)

- Design of site is poor
Bottom Line: On the face of it, this is one of the best fetish/rubber sites around. Original content, a stunningly sexy star who seems to be fully into the activities, and good quality videos and photographs with a touch of originality and imagination. There's everything from inflatable buttplugs to fucking machines, cumshots to bound-and-gagged scenes, all wrapped up in a beautiful latex package.

The design is not good - for example you have to keep returning to the Members' Index page to go to different video/gallery pages - there should really be a sidebar on each page to access any page at once. I suspect the site is home-designed and would be better designed professionally.

The main gripe for me is about the DRM protection on the videos, which uses EZDRM. First, this means that (as far as I can tell), you can only watch the videos while your subscription is active. I have never before been a member of an adult site (and I've been a member of plenty) where this was the case, from the biggest like BangBros to individual amateur sites. I understand why they do it - to stop people uploading the videos onto forums or torrents - but I think it's counterproductive and will put off legitimate paying customers, who may even be driven to see illegal DRM-free versions of the videos online, thinking, "Well, I've already paid for them."

Second point on the DRM is that it seems to make the videos unwatchable on an Apple Mac. I emailed the webmaster about this and he/she suggested that I could partition my Mac hard drive with BootCamp, but I don't want to buy a copy of Windows just to watch these videos (and only while my sub is active!). It's not clear to me whether this is a teething problem or a permanent issue. If I get any further clarification from the webmaster I'll post a reply below.

All in all, this is a site with great potential because of its superb high-quality content, but is let down by some aspects of the structure and design.

Ergo Proxy (21) I aborted my membership because of the DRM stuff. If you don't subscribe you can no longer watch the videos.
Nobody with a sane mind should support such a shit, though I really love this site. It really hurt to leave it.

carteresque (Suspended) REPLY TO #1 - Ergo Proxy :

I did get a reply from the webmaster who basically said that they transferred over to DRM because they spent so much time taking down siterips that they almost gave the site up at one point. I can sympathise with that, but I do think that the move to DRM will discourage long-term subscribers (particularly as the updates are only about once per week, alternating video and photos, so for video fans like me, there are only about two updates per month).

I don't know how other sites manage to keep going without DRM. And it's important to remember that siterips and videos appearing on filesharing forums are actually a crucial form of advertising for these sites, albeit illicit advertising. Indeed it was after seeing a clip from Rubber Passion on pornbb that I signed up to the site in the first place.
