It usually puts a smile on my face when I'm told I'll be reviewing a stocking site. Not all of them are equal, so I find it interesting to see how one will make itself stand out from the rest. Claude Christian took a unique twist in standing out.
Admittedly, I doubt the twist was intentional. However, I have to point out that what will make me remember ClaudeChristian more than other stocking sites is its poor usability. When you get pass the landing page, you're first introduced to what looks like one of those omni-spam o'doom pages that you land on when clicking on malicious banners.
However, if you look closely, you'll eventually find a small text link that takes you to the real members' area. Once there, things are still pretty much devoid of organization and the site looks like something you'd spot on a 1995 WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) program-made site.
Scroll your way down and you'll eventually find what are considered several archives. These are model indexes that let you view all the movies and photo galleries that a performer has appeared in. Click on a model and often you get a little intro to her before having to scroll through all her vids and pic sets.
Needless to say, you'll wish you actually did land on that omni-spam o'doom page I mentioned earlier. However, if you stop pulling your hair out and take a look at the actual content, you'll be rather pleased. Most of the movies are good in quality and the pics are high-res. The way things are set up made it too difficult for me to get the exact amounts, but it's safe to say that you'll get at least 230 movies and about 500 photo sets.
Many of the movies can only be downloaded, while some can also be streamed and others are even optimized for the Apple's iOS. Most files are MP4s, but there are some QuickTime vids here and there. A bunch are rather short, but that's also because they serve to highlight the best parts of the longer versions of the movies that many come with. You can stream the vids in a separate window.
The movies show amateur and pornstar hotties as they masturbate and/or pose while nude or while wearing nothing but stockings. There's some bondage and blindfolds and I even spotted some spanking. A bunch of the babes play with vibrators and dildos, too. There don't appear to be any extras, but new pics and movies are added multiple times a month.
In case I somehow wasn't clear earlier, the design and navigation are really the pits. However, the content is more than decent. If you don't care about user-friendliness, then it's worth checking out.
