Wasteland is a multiple award-winning BDSM and fetish site that claims it is oldest such site in existence having been around since 1994. That is over 24 years of leather-clad goodness to catch up on!
With award wins from AVN and The People’s Choice Awards, as well as mainstream media coverage from the BBC and Fox, if you haven’t heard of them before it’s time for you to catch up.
There are currently well over 1,000,000 photos in total and 1533 videos, with photos displaying at a variety of sizes. The videos are usually available to view in WMV, Flash, MP4 and Flash formats, displaying at various resolutions. Videos can be streamed or downloaded. The newer videos display in 1080p High Definition that display at 1920x1080(6000K). That is for the newer videos only as older videos may display at lower resolutions. The site is updated three times a week.
It’s not often that you get to review a site that is so old that you were barely aware of the internet when it was first formed. Wasteland is such a site, formed back in 1994, and what they haven’t covered on their site when it comes to BDSM and bondage content, isn’t really worth knowing.
They are a pretty big organization and outfit now when all things are considered and the sheer range of content impressed me far more than their admittedly large collection of content. It’s funny though that despite being probably the most comprehensive site in this genre that you will find, still remains something of an unknown quantity to some people.
The quality of the content is largely excellent although some might not be particularly enamored with the amount of content shot at parties or indeed the amount of general content that isn’t really ‘adult’. But the experimentation and scope of their vision is undeniable and this is genuine BDSM content by people who know exactly what they are doing – always the most important point when it comes to content like this.
The presentation was very simple. They did this on purpose to make this site accessible to everybody. They used to have a java based navigation system and a flash interface but too many problems from too many users had them simplify this. I personally commend this decision.
The use of text links leaves the site looking far more drab than it actually is. The categorization is certainly decent enough though and you do get a really good selection of browsing options.
Wasteland is certainly approaching being untouchable as regards the quality, breadth, and sheer scope of its content in this genre that it absolutely excels at. The site continues to grow, and the video quality keeps getting better too, as they now have 1080p movies. This site knows exactly what it is trying to do and it has been doing it for well over two decades.
