Assylum is a brand new anal sex and BDSM site that combines the two genres to hopefully create a different experience for those of you who like both or either of these porn genres!
They have done so by employing state of the art video technology, shooting almost all their videos in 4K ultra HD, and also even allowing you to listen to performers commentating on their own scenes!
This site contains 125 episodes at the moment, all containing videos and photo galleries, with photos mainly displaying at 3840x2160. All image galleries can be downloaded in a ZIP file. Videos are available for download and streaming in MP4 and Flash Player formats, and the site delivers on its promise of 4K ultra HD downloads for premium memberships. Regular members can download up to 1080p that displays at 1920x1080(6000kbps). Updates are currently being made once a week, but sometimes its every 2 weeks.
As someone who never bothers with commentaries on film or TV DVDs I buy, you might ask why I find those that are offered on Assylum interesting. Firstly, because this has been done so little in porn and I would like the industry to have more transparency with its content to ward off constant accusations of misogyny. Secondly, because it just offers more insight into scenes. I often wonder how performers felt when doing certain scenes and now I have that opportunity.
Oh, by the way, the content is great as well! Using a mix of well known performers (Casey Calvert, Sarah Shevon, Penny Pax and others) and some of their own exclusive models, there is already a fascinating range of scenarios and ‘porn plays’ available here. Of course, it all looks stunning in this format - it’s not the only site doing 4K content now, but it is still one of the very few employing the format and I don’t think any other site has used it to such impressive standards so far.
The navigation here is pretty good and has more than enough information and features for you to use. The update information is good enough to be going along with updates being regular too, which is important on any new site.
There were plenty of videos options to download those in, and the galleries were quite well presented as well. It would be good to see one or two more features and I’m not a fan of the frames set-up, but otherwise this was fine.
OK, Assylum might be more expensive than most porn sites and it has a collection that is currently very small. But there is so little originality and imagination in porn these days that we have to look beyond this.
Here is a site that has taken two porn genres, managed to meld them together with some beautifully performed and created scenes, and given its viewers a different viewing experience. I think they deserve a hell of a lot of credit for that.
