Pros and Cons
- high-res photos
- bonus content
- zipped photo sets
- no videos
- very infrequent updates
- some network-shared content
The name, Rope Rookie, made me suspect that I would see first time bondage, but that's not so much the case. Instead, it has softcore photos of women tied up, handcuffed, suspended and blindfolded (not all at the same time necessarily).
Most of the images that you'll see at RopeRookie are exclusive to the site, but a small percentage do seem to appear elsewhere on the company's multi-site network. The content is great and the pictorials are all visually interesting. They vary between having mundane settings and abstract ones and some of the pictures are made to look retro, while others are made to look futuristic. In any case, the focus of all the pics is the bound, female form.
In total, there are 126 sets of high-res pictures and each one of them can be downloaded in a convenient Zip file. You can also view them as slideshows. Regardless of how you choose to enjoy the pics, you're almost guaranteed to adore them, as they're rather impressively shot and mix artistic flare with creative forms of bondage.
Although the material is softcore, that doesn't mean you won't see bare tits, ass and pussy. There are also some scenes more extreme in the sense of the intensity of the rope tying. For example, one photo gallery features a brawny babe who gets her tits tied hard, while wearing a gas mask and being suffocated a little.
Since this is strictly a photo site, there are no videos to be seen on it. It's pretty disappointing, but it wouldn't be so bad if you were getting new photo sets on a constant basis. Sadly, that isn't the case. In fact, while they claim weekly updates, the "next update" section on the home page is empty, so I wouldn't hold my breath for anything new.
While members don't get access to any videos, they do get access to a bonus site called Beauty And Braces and they get some wallpaper as well. Another bonus site is apparently on the way too, so that's good to see (although it has been "coming soon" for a long time now). I should note that there's also a section on the site for "bonus galleries," but it's still empty.
The beauty of Rope Rookie will leave you captivated, but its lack of updates and videos might make some of you hesitate to give it a chance. If you're into a bondage and photography, it's possibly worth a quick look.
