When I was a student I worked the nightshift in a 24-hour convenience store and secretly thumbed through issues of Genesis Magazine. Today, yet again, my work finds me perusing glossy hardcore images, except this time I'm not doing it on the sly between reloading the slush machine. Now, what used to be available only in print is easily accessible online.
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 472 movies that tend to come in at least one good-quality file, although some of the older flicks are less impressive while some of the newest come in HD. They almost all come in MP4s while some also include Windows Media format and downloadable Flash 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 957 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 16 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 been adding new videos and photos once a week lately, 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.
