This site has one of the finest BSDM collections on the Internet, dating all the way back to 1998, and undoubtedly headed to 10,000 updates.

The Kink Archive tour page really doesn't do justice to the wealth of twisted depravity that awaits those brave enough to enter its the members area. Promises like "hundreds of shoots" and "thousands of photos" are laughably understated. The numbers for both are actually in the several thousands, and they reach back nearly twenty years.

Upon first logging in I felt quite overwhelmed. There is so much content here, and it's separated by a mere 6 sub-categories, making the 8500 updates just as intimidating as they are titillating. Though I suppose that's at least in keeping with the theme of the site.
My initial disappointment with the navigation system quickly wavered, however, once I realized that not only was there a whole lot of quantity here, but that it was all quality, too. As it turns out, this is not unlike a major network in that the content comes from several different sources. Sites like Hogtied.com, Sadistic Rope, and Device Bondage make up the bulk of the material. And since these are all companies known for producing high quality productions, you can expect some truly vicious, boner-inspiring sadism.
As I mentioned earlier, content is split up into 6 categories: Bondage, BSDM, Femdom, Fetish, TS(Transexual), and Lezdom. Aside from slight variations in theme, though, they're all surprisingly uniform in both terms of quality and style. In fact, the only ones that really seem to stand out are occasional public humiliation updates. These usually feature some poor girl being forced to strip nude or masturbate in a busy area. Which is pretty goddamn cruel, actually.
Overall, though, this has to be some of the finest BSDM pornography I've ever had the pleasure of masturbating to. Not only are they well lit, shot, and appropriately vicious, but they also feature absolutely top-notch models. I mean, these are the types of girls that some of you might not expect would be willing to subject themselves to such levels of torture and humiliation. And believe you me — these women are, without a doubt, being tortured.
During my extended stay at the site, I've seen women have ropes tied around their tits until they resembled bright red water balloons. In fact, ropes seem to be a real specialty around these parts. But it's not just your run-of-the-mill hogtied action. I mean, there's plenty of that, too, but we also see a variety of knots and methods. Hell, ine one scene I watched, one particularly pathetic subbie was hanging by one ankle from some sort of pully contraption. Anytime she disappointed her master, he'd raise her high, then quickly drop her, causing her to squeal in agony.
On that note, I can't remember the last time I saw such a sheer variety of torture devices on one site. Honestly, the level of human ingenuity that goes into some of these devices is simultaneously frightening and awe-inspiring. The doms here make use of medieval devices such as the rack and the pendulum, as well as more modern inventions that make use of large, painful looking dildos and, of course, the advent of electricity. Honestly, though, the simpler ones seem to be the most effective. I recall seeing a petite brunette, blindfolded and gagged, hanging from the ceiling by a series of chains wrapped around a few iron pipes. The lack of circulation and the obvious discomfort she was in were enough to make me wince. So, just imagine how she felt.
Of course, women aren't the only ones being put through hell around here. The TS section of the site shows plenty of male subbies being subjected to just about everything mentioned above. Also, it's quite nice to see lovely looking chicks with dicks playing both the role of sub and dom, and doing a fine job of it, too. I was quite pleased they decided to include them among their ranks, as it adds even more flavor to the already diverse collection.
Now, some of this content goes as far back as 1998, so you can't exactly expect all of it to be sporting the latest video encoding. But a good percent of the archive is available in both good looking SD MPEG-4s as well as 720p high-definition. Admittedly, some of the latter files can be on the hefty side(especially the ones that surpass the half-hour mark in length), but it's not so bad since the download speeds clock in around 2 megs-per-second during the week.
Also, each scene is accompanied by a photo set, which usually has well over 100 decently sized(1,200 pixel width) images. Yes, they're watermarked, but it's not a large or distracting one, so I really didn't mind. Besides, it's not every day that you get to see action shots of such delicious cruelty. Oh, and full sets are also available for download in the form of a ZIP file — an option I highly recommend you take advantage of.
It all sounds too good to be true, right? And I bet you're wondering what catch is, eh? Well, there really isn't one. But there are a few flaws . . . .
First off, I could see some being put off by the fact that most of this content is at least two years old. It seems that, for whatever reason, this material doesn't hit Kink Archive until it's been in rotation on the other sites for a few years. And initially I thought that perhaps they weren't adding any content at all, since the archives are dated by year, and the last year on display was 2013. After more careful examination, though, I realized that new updates were being added in on a weekly basis. So, if you don't mind the "new" updates being a little "old," there should be no issue. Especially if you haven't seen it already.
The site's most glaring flaw, however, is its navigation. To describe the layout as a nightmare would be putting it mildly. Aside from those 6 categories I mentioned earlier, there's really no navigational tools to speak of. Hell, there's not even a search engine. So, the member is basically forced to pick a category, then continuously click "more videos" while waiting for 10 or so more to load. As you can imagine, this makes getting to the bottom of the archive take quite a long time. Especially with categories like Fetish, which house over 3,000 scenes . . . .
But as horrific as the layout is, I still think this site is worth signing up simply due to the sheer awesomeness of its archives. I honestly don't think I've ever encountered such a consistently high quality collection of BSDM pornography — certainly not one so large. And that's saying a lot, because I've been a fan of the genre since I was a teenager.
What can I say? Kink Archive is truly a tour de force. If you are looking for a truly arousing glimpse at humanity at its darkest, then I cannot think of a better site. The content itself is really some of the highest quality BSDM available on the web, and once you factor in the fact that there's so damn much of it, joining the site becomes a real no-brainer. Yes, the price of admission is steep and the navigation is some of the worst I've ever seen on a site this size, but the collection is so damn good that I'd still feel no compunction about recommending it to, well, anyone. So, what are you waiting for? Sign up already!
