Pros and Cons
- exclusive content
- a few great-quality vids
- bonus content
- poor navigation
- no zipped photo sets
- unclear update schedule
The story behind the website Kristian is quite interesting. It involves a young man named Erik going to the wrong optician to buy colored contact lenses. He ends up not only buying his contacts from Glenn (the owner of the store he accidentally goes into), but also ends up modeling in ads selling the colored lenses. From that rather innocuous start, Erik went on to pose nude for Glenn and eventually other men modeled too and here is where you'll see the resulting content online.
The company named Kristian was launched back in 1994 and even though I'm not sure if that means the website is equally as old, you will definitely feel as if you're jumping into a time machine when you see how outdated the layout looks. I did find a couple of vids dated August 28 and October 10, 2011, so even if nothing else is dated, I know that not everything is from the late '90s onward.
You'll find 18 videos that are mostly below average in quality if you go for the Windows Media format that the majority of the flicks include. There are a few that have good or even great-quality playback if you go with the MPEG or QuickTime options.
The whole thing started with pics, so there are more of those than vids. You'll find 177 photo galleries and they're a mix of sets dedicated to one specific model along with those that combine a bunch of pics from loads of different models. Although the images don't tend to be overly large, over the years Glenn (working as Glenn Glass) has improved his photography skills.
He has worked with pornstars, like Jeff Palmer and James Gates, so what started out as an amateur endeavor has developed into a more professional skill. That said, the layouts tend to have simple backdrops, like bed sheets, or they're taken outdoors. There are a few hardcore shoots with blowjobs and anal sex, but otherwise it's solo posing and stroking that doesn't always lead to a moneyshot.
You will get access to the Bad Puppy network, with thousands of other photos and videos to check out. It also has links to other amateur sites similar to this one that will have you recalling the days when your 56k modem seemed like a speedy dream come true.
Still, you will find some hidden gems if you hunt for them. It's just that the design and navigation of the entire network, including this site, is far from ideal. For one thing, you're going to be relying too heavily on your back button to find your way out of sections or individual scenes.
All in all, Kristian has unique content, but most of it is too average in quality for my tastes. The newer vids are better, so I know that there's the potential to improve on that front. However, just improving the organization of the present material would make for a more pleasant experience.
