Bondage.com is more than just a BDSM and fetish site, it's a community of people who participate in making the site what it is by adding BDSM personals, stories, chats and forums. Currently there are over 1,600 BDSM personal users online and over 920,000 personal ads, 342,000 member pics and a grand total of about 65,000 bondage pics for community members to check out. Registration is free and gives limited access to the site, but for $19.95 per month you can get premium access to the content and all that it has to offer. The member's area offers a unique and professional design, and although the quality of content ranges quite a bit, updates can be expected daily.
Large Active Community of BDSM Members.
When it comes to the community part of the site, I suppose this is where the actual fun begins. There are so many options and user settings, which I'm sure help to create an imaginative community of people who can actually get to know each other in some form and share their BDSM and fetish fantasies with one another.
Member Profiles, User Features & Friends Tools.
Your Personals section allows you to create a profile and answer essay questions such as: Why are you hear? Describe your personality. What is your ambition? Most memorable scene. Describe your sexiest outfit. What does a collar signify for you? What are your deal breakers? You get the idea. There is also a checklist that gives you that ability to let others know what turns you on and what doesn't, you can add audio clips, see who's checking you out, manage a friends list, search for other member's that fit your criteria, etc. Searching the profiles, you are given a listing of members along with their pictures, name, details/location and the ability to browse their member photos, vote for them, add them to your friends list, contact them and more.
Other Good Stuff:
Overall aesthetically speaking, the site design is clean and offers users enough tools to get around. There is a lot to see, so it's not easy to get started, but browsing shouldn't be difficult either.
Mix of Exclusive & Non-Exclusive Content/Quality Varies.
Many of the photos are not exclusive and come from a number of sources. Because of this, quality varies. There are photos as small as 320x480 and as large as 768x1024. Some of the pictures are quite pixelated, dark & blurry, while others are clear and sharp. Some look like they were shot by professional photographers and others look shot at home.
No Video Content.
The video section of the site points you to video feeds (premium member's only) and pay per view video as well as bondage webcams brought to you by cams.com. Although there is no self-hosted or member videos offered here there is a large selection of 3rd party ones and Bondage.com makes up for it in other ways, I assume, by offering members forums and live chat, email capabilities, stories, columns and more.
Search features don't work. It looks like they've done away with categories for the image content in favor of an advanced search feature with multiple filters. However, this search feature didn't work for me now matter what I tried. The member profile search didn't work for me either.
An community of bondage-loving amateurs. Content is just so-so.
It's hard to say how much of the site can you gain access to by registering for free, but if you're someone who's interested in an online fetish and bondage community then I guess it doesn't hurt to find out. I'm sure in order to be able to contact other members and see some of their images you must join at the $19.95 monthly fee, which isn't too bad really. Ultimately, though, potential members need to remember that this is more of a community site then it is a content site. While there certainly is image content to be seen here, most, if not all of it are small images and reduced quality content. I did see some interesting content though, much of which will please those of you who share this lifestyle of spankings, torture, humiliation, bondage, latex and the like.
