There has been a lot on the news in the last few years about countries gaining their independence. I can tell you this, if Fetish Nation were to form its own sovereign state, then I would be the first one there waiting to sign up for citizenship and a passport. They'd probably have really cool passports too.
I love a classy BDSM site and FetishNation is that and a little more. It's a simply designed site with easy navigation and a nice aesthetic. It's black, which is fitting, and it doesn't have a lot of useless graphics. This site lets its content speak for itself and in that regard it starts by whispering delicately in your ear and giving you a little kiss before it wraps a collar around your neck. I guess what I'm trying to say is that the fetish and bondage porn will make you sit up and pay attention.
The movies are broken up into two sections, with one called "the vault." In actuality, the vault is just where 25 archived movies are found, while the rest are in the video gallery. There are 211 videos in total. You can stream them through an embedded player and download them in Windows Media format. The quality varies, with the worst of them being average. However, many of the movies are in HD, especially the more recent they are. All come in a series of parts.
The pictures come in three categories: bondage, fetish and dungeon. The last one is advertised as having slightly more intense bondage, roleplay and torture, but it's really just the photo galleries that correspond to the archived movies (although that's not to say they aren't intense in their own right).
In all, you'll get access to 135 sets of pictures. The content is fantastic and is artfully shot and beautifully presented. All the submissive women are beautiful, each in their own way. To view the high-res shots you'll have to click a picture and open it up in a new window. There are downloadable Zip sets as well as a slideshow.
There are no bonuses other than access to some stories that can be downloaded as PDF files. The membership fee is standard, with a cheaper monthly rebill, and the only real drawback is that there haven't been any updates since June 2012. Even so, joining Fetish Nation is worth the price of admission.
