You don't have to buy it in the middle of the night from some yawning clerk behind a counter. The only question now is whether it's just as good virtually as it was in reality. Rather than draw this out after subjecting you to a boring personal anecdote, I'll let you know straightaway that I wouldn't necessarily switch from print to online with GenesisMagazine.
Progress isn't always perfect I guess and the image quality just isn't the same. However, the old mattress can get lumpy with all those back issues stacked underneath, so it depends on whether you're looking for print perfection or a good night's sleep. Besides, a magazine never came with videos to stream or download.
Here you'll find 437 movies that tend to come in at least one good-looking file, although some of the older flicks are less impressive. They seem to all come in Windows Media format, while some also include downloadable Flash and MP4 files, both for viewing at home and on the go in a version specifically for mobile devices.
I personally appreciated the movies because they are very raunchy and involve many of my favorite hardcore themes, like double penetration, gangbangs and lesbians. Some of the content looks rather dated, but newer updates seem to deliver more contemporary footage.
You'll also find 871 photo sets that you can download in Zip files and view in a hands-free slideshow. You'll see a link that lets you view a larger version - sometimes it gives you high-res images and sometimes it doesn't do much of anything.
There are over a dozen bonus sites (also offered through Swank Pass), including Swank Mag, D Cup, Velvet Mag, Just 18 and Gent Online. They're also print mags being brought into the digital age. Speaking of which, there is a huge archive of hardcopy magazines that have been scanned and uploaded online for you to check out. Plus, you get video feeds and a XXX podcast.
The site has only given us one new video in the last 30 days, but it adds new photos each week, so it continues to grow bigger and bigger. In the end, even though this site isn't as glossy as the printed pages I remember, Genesis Magazine has definitely won me over.
