While the tour page at Wizard Clips presents great flexibility, noting that its members are not only privy to multiple studios and photo sets, but that they can also customize the site via a filter system so that they only get the content they really want, I still can't help but notice that, studios aside, all of the teasers have one thing in common: gorgeous women being humiliated and tortured — and so far as the latter is concerned, we're talking both emotionally and physically. And don't get me started on the ropes and raunchy sex .... What's more, they they're so confident in their product, they offer potential members the chance to scope out the sight with two free tokens. And that's without you entering any credit card information. Not a bad deal, eh?

Right off the bat, you get the feeling that the Wizard Clips is a place where community matters. Upon logging in, the very first thing you see is a bulletin reminding you to checkout their message boards, which they boast already have over 2,000 posts. Of course, the other thing you'll notice is the main menu, which in addition to the bare necessities, also houses some extras, like that steamy, picture filled bondage blog written by Nymphia, chronicling in loving detail the exquisite blend of pain and pleasure these hotties go through. What pleased me most, however, was the surprisingly well written erotic fiction written by none other than my fellow members.
This site's primary focus is videos and still photography, and more specifically, video and still photography that depicts young women — sometimes groups of them — being bound, gagged, and pushed to the limit. So, it's only naturally that I temporarily bypassed some those aforementioned community features during my initial visit, awesome though they may be, and instead went straight to the core of it all: the slave/master relationship. And, boy, do they ever nail it.
Content is broken up into 49 categories, which basically amount to a mixture of niches(barely legal, infantalism, water sports & enemas) with the rest being what I can only describe as methods of torture — think nipple clamps, whippings(with a leather belt) and canings, as well as your good old fashioned paddling. You gotta love corporal punishment. What really surprised me, though, was the inclusion of a few unexpected, off-beat fetishes like food-play. Going to what they call their "Expanded!" search engine, you'll find even more ways of narrowing down your search for the ultimate ball emptier. It has two drop-down menus: Erotic Element and Girls' Attributes. Between the two, you'll have just under 300 additional filters at your disposal, including a number of niches not listed on the main page. Sufficed to say, they've done an outstanding job of mixing it up, and I'm pleased to report that most of the main categories have at least 40 videos, and many well over 100. All of which, I might add, are wel shot, appropriately brutal, and always stay true to their intended niche and/or theme(s).
The site list only 115 scenes under the 'everything no filter' setting. However, if you add up all the numbers given under each of the main niches, it comes out to 1,014 videos. So, the only thing I can figure is that they're doing a shit-load of cross-posting. Which, to be honest, isn't surprising when you've got categories as vague as "Brunette," which, by the way, houses — surprise, surprise! — nearly 100 scenes. Interestingly, only 6 videos are listed under the "Fucking/Intercourse" category, which means if you aren't a purist when it comes to the whole BDSM lifestyle, you might want to venture elsewhere. But if you, however, enjoy seeing women expertly tied, gagged, and destroyed before your very eyes, stay tuned.
The clips themselves are well shot, and, as much as I hate to admit it, often feature very appropriate scores. In general I despise porno music, but whoever is in charge of production here has really done a great job at picking pieces(perhaps even composing?) pieces that fit the mood of the scene to a T. For instance, I just finished watching a recent one where a gorgeous Asian model nervously searches her apartment, and the creepy music did a great job in heightening the tension, and as a consequence, made it all the hotter when she met her nasty fate. And believe you me, no orifice is safe here. I've seen barely legal gals not even yet out of their school-girl uniforms having fruit, veggies, and over-sized dildos up their mouth, pussy, and anus ... simultaneously.
Oh, and I think it's worth noting that downloads here are lightning fast, averaging — in my case at least — at a more than adequate 2.5 megs-per-second. So, you can save yourself the awkwardness of seeing a freeze frame — while the goddamn embedded player is rebuffering — of a formerly attractive model making one of the most unattractive faces imaginable.
And just in case you're wondering, their model index is superb. I'm not surprised, though, because they've only 64 models despite being in business 5 years. It would seem their high standards have paid off, as we've got a lovely selection of gals ranging from just-turned-18 girl-next-door types, to experienced and ready MILFs. Not to mention a few "alternative" types just to spice things up. And best of all, each of these lovely ladies her own in-depth bio, which is almost always positively filthy
On the flip side of the coin, their encoding and playback quality leaves much to be desired. I mean, they only offer us one format and one resolution, and it's not high-definition — not even close. No, these files are much more akin to your typical(for several years ago) SD file, e.g., 649 x 480 resolution and a 1,400 bitrate. And their streaming video, isn't much better, which is a real shame when you consider how their credit system works, which I will get to breifly. Anyway, though, unlike direct-download, streaming does have three options — small, medium, and large — none of them really look all that great when compared with what most other sites are currently offering. Bondage sites have been known for poor lighting and low quality, but I honestly think this is pushing it. Even for a genre that's known for dingy dungeons and sweaty, red behinds.
What may be a flaw — depending on how you look at it — is that there's no flat monthly rate here. This is pay-per-view content. Typically a 10 minute video costs around 2.50 tokens, which equates to $2.50 USD. If, on the other hand, you decide to just stream the video, instead of it being cheaper, which to me would make sense, it ends up costing you about three times as much because they charge you around .69 tokens per minute. Bummer.
I was also quite saddened to find that photos have been deemed "low priority" by them, so as of yet there's only a lone sample gallery. Which, by the way, costs just under 2 tokens. And that's for 10 photos. Not quite the bargain I was hoping for. The images themselves were a mixed bag. I was pleased to see they were well shot and lit, and did not feature any pesky watermarks. However, just like their video brethren, they suffered from a lack of resolution. Also, your only option is to download. The images cannot be viewed on site. But I suppose if you're paying for them, you might as well keep 'em forever, right?
But just so we end this on a positive note, I think it's worth pointing out that, not only did I eventually visit the site's forum, but I was quite impressed with it, too. There's over 2,000 posts, 741 topics, and 3,500 members, and it's not uncommon for as many as 50 to be on at one time. They've also done a great job adding plenty of sub-forums — most of which are pretty damn active — ranging from site technical help and suggestions to niche specific erotic chat. I browsed the boards quite a bit, and I was happy to find a fairly close knit community with pretty much zero fighting. A rare sight, but a welcome one. Anyway, between the forum and the blog, I'd say they've gave this site a personal touch that really makes it feel real. Which, in my opinion, equates for superior load inspiring potential.
Wizard Clips does a great job at providing high quality videos not only to those into hardcore bondage, but off-beat fetishes as well. The inclusion of infantalism and food-play was of particular interest. Though I suppose I can see how the former fits into the whole humiliation part of the kick. Either way, they've quite the versatile, growing archive, and are off to a great start. Perhaps most impressive of all is their user forums, which are extremely active and constantly abuzz about the latest releases. The only real pitfall I can see here — aside from the occasional too short clip — is that their credit-based system may turn some off. So, if you're more into a monthly flat rate, you'll probably wanna avoid this one. Otherwise, I think it's worth a look. Particularly if you like your models young and your sex rough.
