Tired of the same old generic porn, whether it be straight or lesbian? Well, then Crash Pad Series might just be exactly what you are looking for. This site produces content that is described as blurring gender lines and it features a wide array of sexualities and expressions. Still not sure what it's about?
Well, CrashPadSeries is home to lesbians, queers, gays and transgenders. There are photos and videos and behind-the-scenes content and it is all produced with an artistic eye and a true sense of the community for which they are making it. The site is actually really nice to look at and surfing it is a breeze.
There are 318 videos (159 scenes plus 159 behind-the-scenes vids). The movies can be streamed or you can download them in mostly Windows Media and MP4 files. Older movies offer the WMV and QuickTime, while the newer episodes provide WMV and MP4. Quality can be all over the place, but most fall in the good-quality range. There are also images with each episode, but they appear to be vid caps (although very good-looking ones).
There's a nice "characters" section where you can browse the performers and see what each has to offer. There's also a blog with interesting information and writing. They offer a basic search engine, but it would have been helpful to get keyword tags to find like-themed content quickly.
They have a three-tiered membership system and if you opt for the highest level, you also can peruse the "keymaster's collection." This consists of "premium picks from the keymaster's stash" and they include director's cuts and other choice scenes. The other two memberships are obviously lower in price, but you won't get certain features (like the ability see any movies), so be sure to select wisely.
Nothing is dated, but taking previous and current content amounts into consideration, it looks like they're updating weekly. There is enough to check out right away and then with the community aspect you will be able to spend a good amount of time on the site between updates.
The full-service price tag is a little higher than I would have liked and higher quality would be nice, but Crash Pad Series is a strong site. With all the content and the blog and the respect for the genre it will surely make fans of anyone interested in this kind of queer porn.
