Kink: Amalgamated

Kink.comSince its inception back in 1997, Kink.com existed as an assortment of largely independent websites all operating under the general guidance of Public Enemy #69, Kink founder Peter Acworth. With recent controversies surrounded the company and its base of operations at the San Francisco Armory, the future of the always-challenging BDSM studio wasn’t as clear as it once had been. A recent announcement has quelled any suspicions that Kink was going anywhere and instead streamlined the company’s subscription offers to bring everything branded with a bed red K into one package.

Kink has always felt like a porno outlier, content to shoot its esoteric content for a limited audience then happy to ride the wave of success and notoriety that naturally flowed its way. Now with its Kink Unlimited program, the most loved and loathed studio in porn packs the agendas of all its subscribers with everything from the all-female anal explorations of Everything Butt to the utter brutality of Hardcore Gangbang, Public Disgrace’s daring humiliations, and the sci-fi masturbation of Fucking Machines. For a service of this magnitude, excellence, and sophistication, the $49.99 being asked of prospective members by Kink seems quite reasonable. In all fairness, though, this deal won’t really suit those only interested in a single site, especially if said site is one now falling from Kink’s list of priorities. The network hub does connect to 24 sites, however, and there’s hardly a porn viewer alive who can’t find something truly, awesomely arousing among them.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have call my landlord and explain why watching French women tied up and taunted in public is more important than paying rent on time.

AJ’s Big Black Gangbang

AJ Applegate

There comes a time in every the career of every porno superstar when she throws caution to the wind and embraces the idea of being completely filled, made airtight if you will, by the hefty dongs of her male co-stars. Once Asa Akira leapt into gangbangs, there was no going back, her tenacity making those scenes some of the most viewed and revered of her illustrious career. Coupled with the added (and kinda dated) taboo of interracial sex, any white pornstar taking three or more BBCs in one sitting is undoubtedly bold, brave, and headed for an even hotter phase of her on-screen career.

Third Degree Films knows talent when they see it and they must’ve seen AJ Applegate tearing up the adult industry since her debut back in 2012 and now, after proving herself in HardX’s Gangbang Me by taking on six guys at once, the studio has hired Ms. Applegate, an AVN nominee and rising star, to take on an insane seven-guy squad of today’s biggest black porn studs. Speaking to Fleshbot about the momentous occasion, AJ claimed that it was “absolutely amazing,” something she attributes to the studio (“they just let you fuck and don’t micromanage,”), the guys (“I felt like all the guys I had were really trying to get a connection with me,”), and the woman chosen to supplement the riotous gangbang with a more sedate but equally passionate lesbian scene, Chanell Heart.

Released into the retail world at the tail end of May, My First Black Gangbang should soon make it to the already AJ-heavy Third Movies membership site. But this, the first in what seems to be a new series of IR gangin’ action, poses a question I can’t wait to have answered. So, Third Degree, who’s next?

X Marks the Hot

AVN’s 2015 Director of the Year award winner, Mason, started shooting porno for Rodney Moore back in the 1990s and learned a lot from the vertan smut-peddler. But soon Mason would develop a style all her own, directing the likes of Jada Stevens, Mia Malkova, Riley Reid, and Anikka Albrite in copious titles for Elegant Angel, before establishing on her own sites through OpenLife. HardX continued the more aggressive Elegant Angel style but pushed it even further, shooting anal, threesome, DP, blowbang and gangbang, interracial, and rough sex, while EroticaX took a more romantic approach to hardcore, letting the performers find their chemistry and let it slowly turn from a sizzle to a roar. Joining HardX and EroticaX is Mason’s answer to all those fans clamoring for an all interracial site from the master director. Introducing DarkX.

DarkX Keisha Grey Interracial

Where HardX pairs top pornstars with the roughest, toughest, most aggressive men in the business and EroticaX creates tender, intimate sex scenes as explicit as they are impassioned, DarX invites Cassidy Klein, Brooke Wylde, Kagney Linn Karter, Ashley Adams, and a handful of similarly sexy pornstars to match their skills against the biggest, blackest cocksmen in the game. Lexington Steele isn’t known for his sexual timidness, nor are Jon Jon, Prince Yahshua, Mandingo, or Sean Michaels known for having modest penises. These BBC-wielders came to DarkX to plow white, Asian, and Latina pussy and Mason ensures her devoted fans can watch it all go down in more than sixty brilliant High Definition scenes and galleries, shot with the utmost artistry and care by one of porn’s most celebrated directors.

There does exist a fair amount of interracial activity on both HardX and EroticaX, which may lead some to rue the lack of a three-site package deal, but will undoubtedly lead others to say, “Fuck it, this shit is insanely hot!” and sign up for all three sites in one fell swoop. If I wasn’t so graciously given complimentary passes to conduct reviews, I know that’s what I’d be doing.
