There's nothing quite like the site of a pathetic subbie bound and gagged, their eyes wide with terror, as a menacing looking dom standing over them.
Complete review published on 04.10.2017
If the tour page is any indication of what's in store for me inside the membership area, then Deviant Hardcore is a proverbial sex dungeon. The teaser imagery shows porn stars, with tears and mascara running down their faces as they choke on cocks. I couldn't help but notice plenty of leather gear, blindfolds, ropes, and cages — you know, pretty much everything you'd expect to find on a bondage site. So far, I can see why this site calls itself "The home of beautiful punishment." But we can't know for sure until we've had a look inside, right? And that's exactly what I'm going to do. Care to join me?

The membership area sports quite the fitting considering the sorts of niches this site covers: the blood red text set against a black backdrop, the faint image of a bound woman gasping, and various shots of torture and humiliation. But all of that is pretty much par for the course on a bondage site, no?
If anything, what I found shocking was just how well put together and organized the layout was. The main menu stuck to the basics, making browsing the site for the very first time easy and intuitive, and the sidebar contained links to the most watched scenes and highest rates scenes, as well as the highest rated models. Hell, there was even a link for signing up to the site's newsletter, which I hear is actually quite well written and informative. Not exactly what one would expect to find in a proverbial Internet sex dungeon, but a welcome surprise, nonetheless.
I also couldn't help but notice that Deviant Hardcore is doing a fine job of sticking to their update schedule, pumping out fresh content on a damn near weekly basis each month. In fact, they've maintained this update schedule since the site launched in November of 2015. Which explains how they've already managed to amass 101 videos. Not bad for a site that's not yet 6 months old.
Equally impressive is that they've managed to cover so much ground in so little time. There's currently 59 niches listed under the "categories" section of the main menu, and while there's plenty of the expected categories — spitting, flogging, duct tape — they've also included a few not so common(even for BDSM) categories, like pet-play and hairy girls. Oh, and all you fans of shemales will be happy to hear that they're going there, too. So hot.
With so many categories and so few videos, you might be thinking their current content has to be a mess, but I'm here to tell you that nothing could be further from the truth. What they've actually done is put come up with some very professional looking, surprisingly clear by bondage standards, scenes.
I was very impressed by the props and sets. The rooms they've setup as torture chambers usually look quite gritty and filthy, almost nightmarish, like something you'd see in one of the Saw films. Similarly, they've applied some sort of filter to give the scenes that washed out, grey look often seen in horror films. They even occasionally add a little bit of grain and a few cigarette burns, just to complete the grindhouse effect. I should note, though, that they don't go overboard with the latter. These scenes are very clear and watchable.
So far as the action is concerned, there's plenty of the chains and whips sort of stuff one would expect. And I'm happy to report that they aren't afraid to get extra rough. It's not uncommon to see pathetic subbies being slapped and spit on as they beg for mercy.
One major advantage to this site being brand new is that all of the videos are high-definition quality. In fact, every scene on the site can be downloaded in 720p and 1080p. But if HD isn't important to you or if you'd rather just watch these scenes on the go, they've included great looking SD and mobile formats, too. Sadly, they can currently only be streamed an SD(640 x 360) format. But on the bright side, scenes stream without a hitch, which I suppose isn't all that surprising since content here download at a lightning fast 2.5 megs-per-second.
At the moment there's only 23 photo sets, which is obviously far less than half the number of videos currently posted on the site. They somewhat makeup for this fact, however, by packing these babies cram full of photos. Most galleries contain well over 200 shots, available in your choice of a 1,000 or 1,600 pixel resolution.
Admittedly, the galleries do sometimes contain images that are so similar as to be redundant, but there's still enough unique, highly hot shots to make the large count impressive. I also appreciate the fact this is unique still photography, and not just a bunch of screen caps pawned off as "photos." Couple that with the fact that these are clear, crisp, and feature vibrant colors, and it feels like a bonus. Especially since I wasn't really expecting any photos, anyway.
So, what's there to complain about? Well, I can see some being put off by the scant numbers, but that's to be expected when you're dealing with a site that hasn't even been around 6 months. Honestly, if they keep updating at their current pace, the archive should fill out nicely in a few months. As for now, you just have to look at this site as a strong up-and-comer in the BDSM genre.
My only real gripe would be that often the doms seem to be the strong silent types, who'd rather look menacing while torturing their victims than taking the more straight forward approach of taunting or delivering direct commands or orders.
This definitely works, but sometimes I find myself in the mood for a little verbal humiliation, you know? And to their credit, they sometimes do just that. Sadly, though, in some of those scenes, it seemed the performers just weren't taking things as seriously as they ought to have. For instance, in a scene where Gabi Paltrova humiliated a male subbie by making him suck her strap-on, she didn't really seem all that convincing when demanding he beg her for mercy. Similarly, the male subbie seemed almost sarcastic while doing the begging, even occasionally giggling. This definitely took me out of it. In the site's defense, though, scenes like this were rare, and for the most part the tone remained appropriately dark, nasty, and perhaps most importantly of all, serious.
While there's admittedly not a lot of content at the moment, and no bonus content to supplement what's already there, this site is growing at an impressive pace, and the content it's currently pumping out is damn top notch. So, if you're a fan of BDSM, you'll want to, at the very least, keep this one near the top of your list. Deviant Hardcore is a truly promising up-and-comer, and it's producing the sort of content that true connoisseurs of BSDM are sure to appreciate.
