Obviously with any website if you don’t have an interest in the material being offered then you’re 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 don’t like extreme BDSM then you definitely won’t 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 wouldn’t 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 isn’t 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 they’re easily skipped it isn’t 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 don’t 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 ‘new’ element (which I may just have not noticed before) resolves one of the few complaints I’ve had about this site. I wish that they’d 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 ‘live’ 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 aren’t 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 didn’t experience any of the links timing out. Download speeds are a bit faster than I’m 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 isn’t 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 can’t 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 you’re a member of one Kink site you get discounts on the other sites. An element to the value debate is that Kink isn’t a ‘network.’ 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 don’t 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 what’s offered.
