Helen is a writer who was tired of typical porn sites and came up with her own - Illustrated XXX Stories. At first I thought this would be another toon site, but found myself immediately intrigued. This is a cool idea and one that I've rarely come across. Site design is simple and so is navigation.
There are no movies on IllustratedXXXStories, but what's really unique about this site is that it offers exclusive full-length story galleries that can be erotic, romantic and even hardcore. Stories have a good length of over 2,500 words. Themes are diverse and you obviously can't get this kind of creativity with live-action porn.
The narratives in the 97 stories include college fun, blowjobs while driving, MILFs, lesbians and even a few fetish themes. I read a story called "First Time Anal." The writing is solid with a bit of a backstory. While there isn't much in the way of description or depth, there is a load of action. Illustrations are exciting and detailed, colors and lines are effective, but I was disappointed that I couldn't download the ones I saw in the "pictures" section. The illustrations look good.
On the other hand, there is also a "photo" section, but here you will find live action images to go along with the stories. There are about 80 to 100 shots in each set and the pictures are crisp, clean and high-res. The lighting is terrific and the angles and framing make the scenes exciting. However, these are not illustrated images, but rather actual photos, and since the site uses the term "illustrated" right there in its name, we are considering these extras.
Additional extras include access to 12 bonus sites, including Virgin Paradise, Erotic Nymphets, They Drunk and On Moms. These are more live-action sites featuring horny and kinky amateur Russian chicks. There are no dates on anything, but the numbers on this site have only gone up by seven in the last nine months, which implies slow updating.
Illustrated XXX Stories has a unique concept in mixing solid writing with impressive photos and illustrations. For many though, in order to drop the cash, you really have to be interested in the entire network.
