Damsels in Peril touts itself as "the home of British softcore fetish fantasy bondage, thriller and peril." Bold claims, indeed, but their H.Q. samples have me wondering. There's nothing like seeing 20 or 30 women writhing in bondage — primarily the hogtied and ball-gagged variety — to get your blood pumping. Naturally, I was pleased to find that there is more to be found inside — a lot more. In fact, according to the figures they give on their tour, just over 400 videos and picture galleries. Oh, and enough yummy amateurs models to stave off a horde of escaped felons.

When I hear a name like Damsels in Peril, I can't help but daydream about helpless women in horrific situations. It would be easy to just tie the girls up, yell at them a little, and call it a day. But this site's went that extra mile, cooking up hundreds of terrifying scenarios — home invasions, hostage situations, violent gangs, and perhaps worst of all: the betrayal of a friend. The one thing that really ties the videos is that the victim, without fail, ends up bound, gagged, and stripped by the end of the scene. Usually with rope, though the bad guys have been known to improvise, sometimes using tape, phone cords, or whatever else they can get their grubby hands on.
It's interesting to note that the action here is almost exclusively girl-on-girl. They experimented with using men, usually as the villain, in the earliest updates, abandoned the idea, returned to it briefly in 2008, and here we are now in 2012 and there's not a dick in sight. Fine by me. In fact, my only complaint would be that there's not enough fondling going on here. The torture seems limited to bondage and intimidation. The site does bill itself as softcore, though, so I wasn't expecting vicious assaults. A tad more fondling, maybe even a little nudity, would have really hit the spot, though. This one's aimed more toward the purists, and in that regard I think they've nailed it.
If anything, the site has been quite consistent throughout the years. Since their debut in 2004, they've been adding a new video and gallery every 6 days, like clockwork. With going on 8 years worth of weekly updates, they've put together a smorgasbord of hogtied action. By my count there's somewhere in the neighborhood of 539 scenes and 548 photo sets.
Digging into all that content is easy due to the straight forward layout. I would have liked to have seen more browse-tools, but everything is organized well enough. In addition to giving you a major taste of the photos up front on the main page, there is also a basic menu and search engine. Content can also be filtered by model, date, or popularity. I think they'd do well to add a few more browse-tools. Perhaps even break the videos up into different categories, e.g., burglary, escaped lunatics, evil authority figures. Some niche tags wouldn't hurt either.
Videos can only be streamed or downloaded. Unfortunately, there's only one format at the moment and no mobile files, either. On a brighter note, the video is clear and, though it's not HD, has a big enough resolution. But the site has been around for going on 8 years now, so it's natural there's a few duds in the mix. The oldest of the updates have a very small resolution and poor playback quality. One thing I will say, though, the lighting in these scenes is some of the best I've seen on a bondage site, hands down. They didn't slouch in the audio department, either, which means you get to hear those lovely accents loud and clear. And I must say, those British babes make great villains.
Keeping with the trend of simple navigation, the galleries are pretty bare-bones. You won't find any fancy viewers or slide-shows around here; just a synopsis, rating, user-comments, and a nice row of thumbs. Naturally image quality has come a long way since 2004, and it shows in the latest updates, which have dimensions of 960 x 1,440 pixels. There's usually between 80 and 160 pictures in each gallery, and complete sets can be downloaded in a ZIP file. Since they follow the scenes quite closely, they're a great way of getting a taste before you go all-in for the download.
Of course, to make these scenes work a nice stable of models. They have 164 girls, so far, and they're a lovely mix of British amateurs and porn stars. They also haven't shied away from the older, rougher looking types. Instead of throwing the older ones straight into the villain role, they used them wisely. I found these scenes were often much more realistic. In spite of the, admittedly, sometimes silly acting. Just thinking that could be someone's mother being taken advantage of like that. So hot.
In addition to producing super hot and fun content, Damsels in Peril is well established and extremely reliable. Once inside the members area you'll find just under 8 years worth of footage of British hotties tying up and degrading each other. To be honest, the site could do with a little updating, especially in the navigation department. But at the end the day, they deliver where it counts. Highly recommended to BDSM enthusiasts — particularly those who don't like it too rough.
