Although more of an S&M site (or would that be B&D, I get confused) than a spanking site, I think a lot of readers would be interested in knowing what this site has to offer. The website is very easy to navigate, although it might confuse a few people at first. There is a basic description page when you enter the members area, with text links at the top. The Gates is where the photos and videos are, and you may also vote on a poll or post messages on the message board. The poll isn't like one that we have here, where members give their opinion on various subjects. The poll actually allows members to decide how a person will be punished, or in what position, ect. I thought that was a really great way to get the members involved with the site. Now onto the content. As you move into the photo/video area, you have several "gates" to choose from. Within each gate provides several scenarios for a particular girl(s). The way PainGate does their selections is this. There is a new skit at the top of the page with never before seen photos and videos. The archives are located beneath that, which are rotated out, roughly one gate a week. This allows them to post a good amount of material, but not totally kill their resources. The archive gates have all of the photos and videos that are shot from that scenario, while the newest one is added a little at a time until that is complete, and then another skit is started. They update the site nearly everyday, so there is always something to go back and look at. The galleries are fairly large with approximately 20 photos per gallery, and between 4 and 10 galleries per scenario. Each of the photos are high resolution, giving a size just under 800X600. The videos are all in Real Media format, and vary in length from 30 seconds to a minute or so. Each scenario has anywhere between 5 and 10 videos. The resolution of the videos is the average size for RM's. The content is a little more intense than your basic spanking website, but I think it would appeal to many whom are interested in the spanking subject. There is a ton of material to look through, and the updates feature a large amount of material as well. Ok, now the price. It's a little pricey at $29.95 a month, but with the amount of resources needed to handle that much material, it's understandable. The cost of websites seem to be going up these days, but in return you are getting a lot more content, with a lot higher quality. If you are just into Mommy takes little girl over the knee for a spanking stuff, then this may not be for you. But, if you're looking for something a little harsher, then this is a great site to start with.
