It has been quite some time since we first reviewed First Time Tied and it has changed considerably in that period. On our first visit, we were left with mixed feelings, but I now feel quite positive about the site with only a couple of things that I'm not in love with. At any rate, with gorgeous Swedish girls in amateur bondage scenes, it's rather tempting to overlook any issues.
FirstTimeTied has around 200 videos. Most are completed scenes with numbered sequels, but sometimes the vids are broken up into parts and there's no way to tell short of looking at every movie. There are numerous sorting options, however, including by date, title and scene length. You can also use keyword tag to find similar scenes, save your favorite vids and use an advanced search engine.
The video quality varies greatly and although they list several scenes as having "HD 720p," this is actually to let you know that the default stream has 1280x720 dimensions and not that it's necessarily in HD quality, but you will still find several high-def options for both streaming and downloading. You can choose from just about every video format imaginable, too.
Loads of bondage techniques are shown, with girls hogtied or frogtied, ball or bit gagged, or silenced with a bandanna between their lips or a piece of duct tape over their mouth. I saw some impressive knots, like one that formed a beautiful star-like pattern of rope around all the extremities and neck, making it into one gorgeous knot. Fantasies take place in various locations, like the home, the laundry room or the bathroom.
I counted 337 photo galleries and they have high-res images that in many cases can be downloaded in Zip files. I love the models in these spreads, but Sweden is well-known for its natural beauties. You will see some of them completely naked, while others might give just a flash of cleavage. Babes also appear in bras and panties, lacy lingerie, corsets, bustiers and latex outfits.
There aren't any bonuses. The only other section is the model index that gives some stats about each chick and almost all of them have appeared in multiple video and photo sets. Speaking of which, you can expect two new movies every calendar month, but it's completely random as to when it'll come. You'll see bonus DVDs, video feeds, audio stories and written stories linked to, but the sections are all empty.
As I mentioned earlier, the quality varies quite a lot. Luckily, so do the file sizes. This is very important because the highest-quality scenes will eat up your daily allotted amount of bandwidth. Yes, you read that right - there's daily download limit to deal with.
The chicks are attractive and the amateur vibe is pretty cool. Overall, First Time Tied has come a long way, so other than the daily download limit, I see no reason to hesitate joining.
