For a country that still censors full-frontal nudity, Japan has produced some of the freakiest porn that I've ever had the pleasure of viewing. If you like things extreme, Asian Ropes will douse you with some hardcore BDSM scenarios. Bondage and S&M enthusiasts will be overjoyed by some of the content here.
AsianRopes offers full-length DVDs and the site tells us that 20% of the content is exclusive. The action is nothing if not imaginative, with scenes involving pliers, electricity play, sensory deprivation and good old-fashioned corporal punishment. The films are all in Japanese and there aren't any subtitles, but you shouldn't have too much trouble keeping track of what's going on.
All the submissives are women and all the dominants are guys. If there's anything that this site is missing, it's a decent Femdom scene. That said, there is one memorable episode that involves a chick fisting another babe while Little Miss Fisted hangs suspended in mid-air. It's really quite hot, so make an effort to seek it out.
The 145 DVDs look quite nice and you can download them in good-quality Windows Media files. This is genuine porn from Japan. As such, everyone's naughty parts are pixelated. So as insane as the scenarios are, you're still not going to see their privates.
It should also be noted that there aren't any photos on the site. There are, however, extras. You can take a look at 40 additional movies and also explore four full-access bonus sites, namely Asia Movie Pass, Brokeback Asians, Asian Prego and Flip 18. The extras might come in handy because it doesn't look like this collection of BDSM DVDs has grown in about a year and a half.
The only real problem (other than the lack of updates) is the size of the files. When you're looking at an average of 1GB per DVD, you'd better clear some space on your computer, so that you can save the ones you want. Also, you should clear your schedule a bit because it'll take you a while to watch them.
The amount of content on Asian Ropes is good, but if you've been in the biz for more than 10 years like they have, you'd think they had a larger selection. Still, the website is worth your time if you love shibari and Asian babes.
