Dominate, humiliate, hurt and torture. No, it's not my to-do list for today, but it may well be Mistress Karin Von Kroft's. She advertises herself as being "world class" in domination and you can find out if she's telling the truth on her site Dom Karin.
The members' page on DomKarin is white and a little boring - website style does not seem to be a priority. Navigation, however, is simple. After choosing "members" from the left-hand list, just click one of the red links at the top of the page to reach the pictures, videos and stories housed there.
To start with, there are 92 movies. It looks like there's more than that, but actually many of her films are split into parts. She has a long list of her updates that will require a lot of scrolling, but she links all the parts to each update, so it's not hard to find all of the videos. I know that sounds confusing, but it's actually really easy to understand once you see it.
The older movies offer both a Windows Media and RealPlayer format while the more recent updates give you the WMV and an MP4. It turns out that many are average in quality, but you also find some whose playback quality qualifies as good, but also quite a few that hit below the average-quality mark.
They are all hardcore with little acting and only the occasional command or moan or gasp as a soundtrack. Each one has a theme, like golden showers, spanking, caning, whipping, dripping wax, strapon sex, ass licking, CBT and many other acts of domination.
Most videos feature Mistress Karin and a male slave, one contains a female slave and a couple feature another Domme helping Karin train a slave. It is all very hardcore, so this is not the site for someone with only a mild interest in dominance and submission. It looks like you can expect a new movie about once or twice a month and two to three photo sets in between.
Speaking of photos, there are 347 photo galleries, but it looks like there are more because they come in up to four subsets. The spreads contain around 30 pics that cover all aspects of BDSM. The quality ranges from medium to high-res, but you won't know until you test each set out. Mistress Karin shows you how she humiliates and arouses her slaves by forcing them to lick her ass, peeing in their mouths, fucking them with a strapon and whipping their naughty behinds.
There is also a section containing a bevy of well-written stories that are broken up into parts. These tales are all inspired by Mistress Karin and her site. You can submit your own story if you like and she says that she'll put it on her page for other members to read.
There is a good amount of content on Dom Karin and what is here is very thrilling. It is definitely for those of you who are deeply turned on by pain, domination and humiliation. If she could speed up the updates and improve the video quality, her score would be better.
