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.

-Close to 400 scenes with video and photoset all the way from 2005 to this day
-Weekly update with a long scene
-720p HD from 2006 already. Most of the scenes are 720p
-These guys are the pioneers of sex in bondage kind of material. There is lots of variation and little bit for everyone as long as you like the subject
-Active community on site with forums and commenting
-Well known models as well as total amateurs
-Good download speeds, works well with DL manager, no timeout on login that I've noticed. Technical side works
-Kink.com membership is not tied to any subscription. You can stay and subscribe what and when you feel like it waiting for possible special price offers
-Site could use some work. No relevant search or any kind of tagging to find scenes, instead of preview page you are thrown into streaming video when you click on a scene etc.
-Strongly subjective but I prefer European models which this site doesn't feature that often. I'd also prefer even more hardware and less ropes
-Acting too much (I guess it is acting). Screaming, shouting, stupid dirty talk about masters, asking for permission to cum, rolling eyes and making faces etc.
-Relatively pricey unless you wait for a discount either on Kink.com or on some other site
-Not really for photography freaks. Pictures look like non flash pics taken during action or even screenshots
-No 1080p although 720p in mp4 is very good
Without any doubt, this is the most significant sex in bondage site around with strong take on topic and no filler scenes in between. You can see the whole history of them tiptoeing around US legislation in 2005 and quite quickly starting to produce full action in bondage instead of the "catch and release" stuff they were probably forced to do for first few dozen scenes. There is probably no need telling that the site is part of the Kink.com which offers various sites in different fetish themes. However all sites must be individual subscribed to and there is no kind of network pass, only other option being buying overpriced on site currency one can use to unlock scenes.
The content of this site is simply put sex in bondage with various forms of light to semi hard SM with whips, electric prods and such, acting and role play included. There is always at least some kind of master/slave set up in place but occassionally the plots are more elaborate with scifi, medical or some other acting with props and all. The acting is the general porn quality and luckily the focus is still on the action. Sometimes I wish there was a little less of the "Yes master!" shouting as I find it awkward. These people have probably the best shooting locations and hardware for this kind of stuff available in their San Francisco Armory. Personally I think it's still a bit too rope heavy but of course they have a separate site for even more hardware bondage.
Models are the quality factor that varies a lot on this site and it too is of course all subjective. Many of them are American or big name international stars. The most glaring lack is my favorite group, East Europeans. The models aren't all that young or fit and some of them are total amateurs too which is actually cool. The strong American presence leads to lots of awkward dirty talking, shouting and screaming which I personally find a bit too much. There is one particularly frightening case called Chloe Camilla. She looks cute in photos and before the action starts but then it turns into one huge epileptic fit where she makes scary noises and rolls her eyes. Impossible to look for prolonged times.
Video quality is very good, especially if one is willing to download 720p mp4 which can end up in huge files way over three gigabytes. 1080p is a glaring omission by todays standards but I'm not sure if there'd be much to gain with it compared to already very good 720p. The only complaint is that most of the scenes are shot in quite dark conditions although lighting is good. Photo sets are available for every scene but they aren't anywhere near the offerings of sites with more focus on photography and appear to be non flash snapshots taken while filming the scene.
Technically the site itself leaves me little cold. Searching is not happening, there are no tagging on the scenes and the overall appearance is (probably intentionally) dark and minimalistic. The scene links lead directly to streaming scene so be aware of your speaker level. Personally I think they should change it to take user to the site preview.
This site is quite slow updater by today's standards. One scene per week is all you get so prolonged membership might end up not being the most attractive choice. However almost 400 past scenes is certainly a lot and probably takes up to one terabyte of HD space if downloaded at the best 720p mp4 quality so there is a lot for your money. Also once you have made a Kink.com account, you can watch for special offers to join varying sites while leaving others behind. Still I wish they had some system in place where you'd gain credits while subscribing to any of theire sites that you'd be able to buy occassional scene from another one.
*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.
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.
Login system has been revamped for all kink.com sites including SexAndSubmission. It was one of the worst in the industry, now it's one of the best (with ability to see all the sites you're subscribed with them together and almost never-expiring sessions). As it was one of the very few complaints about SexAndSubmission, this change has made it significantly better.
