No, Shadow Lane isn't the porn name of voiceover actor and host of "America's Top 40" from 1988 to 1995, Shadoe Stevens. In fact it isn't even the name of a person. Rather, it's the name of a well-respected spanking production company and that's the type of content that fills the site.
I saw some anal plugging and some hardcore sucking and fucking, but for the most part ShadowLane is about spanking. When looking at the nine newest updates on the homepage, seven of them are spanking scenes and two of them are rectal plugging/play scenes.
The site's motto is, "The romance of discipline" and that idea does seem to permeate the content. The girls are quite sexy, both the submissive and dominant ones, and everyone involved does genuinely enjoy the roles they play.
The site did a little redesign and it looks good. To get to all the content simply head into the videos section and browse the many pages of thumbnails. There's also a categories section should you want to narrow down your search for something a little more specific. Or check out the models index.
Counting the videos was easy and there are 248 movies. However, one annoying issue came up and that was the fact that I could only skip ahead a few pages at a time, with no option to even jump right to the last page. This caused a lot more clicking than there needs to be and will only get worse as the site continues to grow.
As for the videos themselves, they can be streamed in an embedded Flash player and downloaded in MP4 files and while the bit rates did vary, I found that they were mostly good in quality. As for the photo sets they were also easy to find in their own section and I counted 100 galleries. All the sets can be downloaded in Zip files.
For each set, as well as for each scene, you can leave a comment and rate it on a 5-star scale. Everything is also dated and while they have only added one or two new photo sets in the last month, they're updating with a new movie pretty much every couple days.
In the end, if you're looking for some good spanking action with some hardcore mixed in, like anal, then Shadow Lane is worth checking out! Note the download limit, though.
