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.
*Newbie reviews and ratings don't count toward a site's overall score/rank until the user reaches the Rookie status level (5 points). This rule is needed to help prevent fake (or heavily biased) profiles and reviews.
After a week or so of impossibly slow download problems, Sex & Submission seems to be up & running well again. I went away in frustration, but came back yesterday just to check and the download issues seem to have gone away and it works well again.
I was rattled, but my faith in Kink.com is now restored.
I have been joining Kink.com sites for at least a decade and in the past have found it at the top of the pack in quality of service. Suddenly 2 or 3 days ago my downloads (normally 800-1200 KB/s) screeched to school zone speed (42 KB/s) which is useless since I don't care to stay connected for 6 hours for the download of one scene.
Downloads from other non-Kink sites seem normal (a sample from firm hand spanking downloaded at 500 KB/s which is normal for their site), so I can't blame my computer, browser, or Internet service provider.
E-mailed them Friday, but no reply because of the holiday weekend. Just curious if anyone else has experienced problems with Kink.com these last few days. Would appreciate knowing that I'm not alone.
I have joined many of the company's sites at KINK.COM.
But for some reason when I joined this last one Sex and Submissive Woman after 5 days they will not let me login in any more nor will they reply to any of my emails.
So how does one cancel a membership if you can not log in and cancel it.
I now have to cancel my credit card , very unprofessional and they will never see me back.
Be careful of this group !!!!
I have trouble with many links on this site and kink.com sites generally not working. They are not giving error or anything, clicking on them simply does nothing. I've tried on two different computers and on multiple browsers. The links not working are for example the ones on the top leading to forums and the site links on the site drop down menu. Right clicking with open to new tab works though. Anyone with same issues?
Also another question. Is there a way to preview other sites without logging out first?
... is the short pre-action interview with the model in the beginning of many of the videos. I understand the reasoning behind it, it is meant to re-assure tender souls (and the law?) that the submission is not only willing but actually anticipated but to see a model gush how much she looks forward to the "abuse" makes the whole rough "play" unbelievable right from the start. The post-action interview is fine. This habit of a pre-action talk with the model is common to many Kink.com sites and I, for one wish they would do away with it. I know it's all game playing but why make it so obvious?
I'd really love to subscribe but I feel network pass is the standard these days. I wish you guys had one, let it be limited or expensive if that's what it takes.
I could live with a subscription that lets me download only a handful of clips across all kink.com sites weekly. There appears to be so much great material spread across them but then there's also some stuff that's totally "meh" to me, even on my favorite niches.
Since you have so much genre overlapping stuff on your sites, maybe do what's very unpopular on network pass sites? I mean offering duplicates across the sites where it fits. So if a scene has sex in bondage, have it always on SexAndSubmission. If it has anal, put it on EverythingButt and so on.
It looks like a really great sit but i have a few questions. Is there DRM on the site, cause since you can but certin clips i would assume there is DRM on this site. Why would a person buy 1 clip for 29.95 when they could just join the site for the same price and download as much as they want.
My second question is are the movies in good quality or are they just a bunch of old films.
I was a member too long ago to write a full review, but I still have the videos I downloaded. There were many top notch attractive women on the site and mostly the sex was creative and interesting. Most, if not all, are recognizable pornstars doing things that you don't see on your average mainstream sites. I feel definitely an acquired taste as this is a BDSM site though. Some scenes are worth rewatching just to see the chemistry among the participants. It had a real enough feel to the sex and sometimes there is even a story. This site has some things missing in many mainstream porn videos. My only criticism is that you get just the one site, even though there are others in kink.com that you have to pay for separately at full membership price. They should have the other sites included or at least give you a break on the price if you join more than one site.
