Have you read "The Story Of O," Anne Rice's "Sleeping Beauty" series, or Laura Antoniou's "The Marketplace" series? In those pieces of literature, the idea of a 24/7 BDSM lifestyle is discussed and fantasized about. The Upper Floor is an attempt to make such a concept reality.
In their "castle" in San Francisco, the people behind Kink.com have dedicated the top floor of their studios to TheUpperFloor. It is there they've decided to, as they say, "test the feasibility of such a place and lifestyle." So far, I gotta say that it seems quite feasible. Masters, Mistresses and slaves assume their roles and you can watch what happens online.
If you're at all familiar with this network, then you know you're dealing with serious professionals in the art of kink - these aren't some wannabes. These folks create high-quality productions with an excellent knowledge of BDSM. They also like to share this knowledge and supply information on the site about 24/7 D/s relationships.
There are 535 videos and they're updating three or four times a month (not on a weekly basis though). You can stream and download the scenes in MP4s and they last anywhere from 45 to 75 minutes. You'll no longer find any Windows Media formats, even for the oldest scenes. You can expect high-def playback from the best version of each and they all include a set of vid caps.
You can watch a slave being house-trained and then check out a fancy holiday party with drinks, good food and a slave tied to a table with her ass in the air and her head in a box. One of my favorites includes some fire play and this scene will have you doing a slow burn as the slave gets her tender nips and pussy teased with flames.
The participants are honest and really interested in what they do - and it comes through. A great example of this is a video where two Masters are discussing what the protocol should be when the slaves are elsewhere in the house and what to do when dealing with other people from the company who are not specifically from this site.
When it comes to the interface, they removed the "more" button to navigate through the pages and replaced it with proper page numbers. This also means you don't have to deal with infinite scrolling when browsing on a desktop. The only issue is that you can't access all the page numbers at once, they just show you a few at a time, but at the moment it's not a big deal as there are only around 27 pages. You still can't keep track of your favorites, though, and although there is an advanced search in the model index, there isn't one for the content.
The scenes are long and involved and really interesting for anyone who appreciates real BDSM, particularly slave training, but if you're still craving more kinky action, you'll be glad to know that you can access the rest of the network of kinky sites. They include Sex And Submission, Water Bondage and Bound Gangbangs.
The bonuses are terrific and overall this network produces well-made, professional quality scenes, so you'll definitely feel like you're getting your money's worth. The Upper Floor has created something special that's worthy of your attention. You'd better obey!
