This site is scored on its photo content—not videos!
Shackled Maidens combines glamour photography with BDSM and fetish themes. It's very much a solo posing site, but I saw at least one spread with two women together. The emphasis is definitely on bondage as an artful expression rather than raunchy debauchery and everything is very classy.

I praise ShackledMaidens for knowing that glamour shots are best taken by professional photographers and the site currently has 700 galleries with superb high-res pictures (1456x2184). As to their artistic merit, some sessions succeed very well while others have an almost campy quality, being a tad too stiffly posed with overly complex lighting. You're able to save them in Zip files and there are both black and white and color pictorials.

There are also 47 videos. Some of them are available as MPEGs, while others are available as Windows Media files. There are flicks that offer great-quality playback and even some that are presented in HD, but you're more likely to come across good-quality ones. 

I was quite surprised by how pleased I was with such short, slightly overacted movies. Somehow, the glossy camp of a well-done-up woman pretending to squirm and writhe in pain is more erotic than if the acting was more convincing. All the vids look to be solo.

Getting around the site is very easy. You can access the pics and vids from the menu at the top of the page and you can also check out the model's page and explore the different kinds of toys used on the women. The members' forum continues to be active. There you will find a section for members' requests.

New photos get added to the website almost every day, but new video don't get posted nearly as often. In fact, only six new movies have been added to the collection since the summer of 2011. Obviously, the site will need to work on getting new videos to us in a more timely manner.   

The cost of a monthly membership to Shackled Maidens is pretty reasonable and it gets even cheaper if you stick around for more than a month. Given this and the fact that there's a fair amount of content on the website, getting a membership is a no-brainer for lovers of erotic bondage art.

    The unique, heavy restraints set this site apart. The photography and model are great and there is variety, some nude and some lingerie shots.

    Most images (even recent ones) seem to be a bit small (1000pix) and only the most recent ones are zipped. That is a real pain. There are also a lot of broken links.

    The big problem though is that there haven't been any updates for over a month. How can a site justify automatic rebilling if there are no updates?

    Overall, worth the money as a one-off, but I wouldn't join again.
