||I had last joined Water Bondage in 2008 and it hasnít updated since then, but I wanted to get more scenes and higher quality now that I have a faster connection. The fact that I went back to a site that offered me nothing new probably says a lot about what I think about this site. For BDSM fans, this is an extremely well done and innovative site that offers lots of material. Its part of the Kink.com network, which, in my opinion, sets a high standard for other internet porn sites.
The site offers 274 scenes dating back to about 2003. Older scenes tend to be fairly simple and short, with many at about 15 mins long. Older scenes are a lot more complex with different setups and are usually over an hour long. As you would expect, the resolutions for the older videos isnít great by todayís standards. The videos are available in two formats: wmv and mp4. For most of the time the site was updating there was only one resolution of wmv available: 640x480 / 1900kbps. There are two sizes of mp4s available. One is for IPods and such, while the other is labeled as Ďbest quality.í I donít know how to find resolutions for mp4s, but subjectively the larger file wasnít much better than the SD wmv.
At some point towards when the site stopped updating they did start to offer higher resolution videos. For most of the last 70 or so updates on the site there is the option of wmv HD at 1280x720 / 7150kbps. SD is still available, as are the two sizes of mp4.
There are pics available too. The resolutions for these didnít change through the whole run of the site: they are 1200x865, not bad, but not particularly sharp. Zips are available, and in the longer scenes the zips are broken down into the themes in the scene.
For all the dated technical issues, this is still a very interesting site. Iím not aware of any other like it where models undergo BDSM treatment in water. In most of the videos there are several Ďscenesí within the video, with bondage while being sprayed with water to machines and toys being used, and in most cases some complete immersion in water tanks while bound. There is a good mix of models too. There are surprisingly many A-listers here, as well as some well known fetish models and also some lesser known girls. There are body types for every taste.
Given the size of the site, I donít consider that it isnít updating to be a serious drawback. There are issues though: for much of the life of the site there were no real technical improvements until the very end. One pet peeve of mine too is that the scenes used to be dated, but they arenít now. That troubles me since I wonder if Kink is trying to hide the fact that the site isnít updating. Finally, Kink doesnít offer any price discounts for members of other Kink sites like they do with most others. Paying $30 for a site that doesnít update seems a bit steep.
ButÖ it is still an amazing site and a decent value considering the quality and quantity.
