Content:

House of Taboo divides its large and exclusive collection into five different "houses". These are called house of spanking, house of bondage, house of carnal clinic, house latexxx, and house of piss. There's also a section with some candid photo galleries from various fetish oriented event, but the section is quite small and doesn't seem to update anymore. In total, the five houses here contain around 320 video/photo combo scenes. Although no update information is found inside the members area, I was able to locate an update log on the outside of the site on the tour pages. It looks like new additions are coming to House of Taboo about twice a week.

The key scenarios here are played out in a variety of different ways. Many of the scenes have a discernible plot and dialogue in English. The action doesn't just take place in dungeons. These guys go on location and use a variety of props, costumes, and sets to create the perfect setting for the freaky fun. Although the main focuses of the site are the five finishes, these are often combined with hardcore, lesbian, or group sex.

The quality of the materials here is very good overall, but I was pretty confused by the completely false information given about the video quality. The flicks here are specifically labeled with their dimensions, bitrates, and file size. The top-quality flicks I downloaded were supposed to be 1280 x 720 pixels, 4000 kbps. Unfortunately, they come at just over half that quality at 704 x 396 pixels, 2600 kbps. They look nice and clear for the most part, they're just not as nice as they would be if they actually came at the size and bitrates promised. Photos are 2000 pixels on the long side and are excellent in terms of clarity, lighting, and color balance. The pictures here are pretty close to perfect.

Features & Navigation:

The tour pages for House of Taboo are done in red and black and are pretty slick looking. You can preview the five different kinky houses they have in the members area, and there's a bit of preview material for each one. I noticed that the tour seems to place a bit of emphasis on things which aren't actually included in your membership, like live cam shows. Despite the good looks of the tour, it's not particularly informative in terms of letting you know hard facts and stats about what exactly you'll find inside.

The same basic graphics and color scheme continues on the inside of the site. As soon as you enter, you'll be asked to choose your perversion and be presented with a list of the five houses plus the section with the candid fetish event photos. A menu near the top of the page will bring you back to the taboo houses listing, and you can also access a model index called "mistresses and slaves", an erotic stories section, customer service, and a contact form that allows you to send in your kinky requests to the site. Sections marked "boutique" and "hotlinks" lead to ads and up sells. There's no way to search or sort the collection, nor can you look up models by anything other than their name.

Once you've selected one of the kinky houses to enter, you'll be taken to a page with the newest release at the top and direct links to access its video and photo materials. Clicking one of the scenes listed below a will pop your chosen scene into this top spot and allow access to the photo and video links. Photos are offered for viewing in thumbnail galleries in your choice of three different sizes and may also be downloaded in ZIP files, although only the largest size is offered in a ZIP. There are quite a few choices for accessing the videos, although the specific sizes and bitrates listed for these aren't accurate as I mentioned. Full-length downloadable WMV and streaming Flash formats are available in two different quality levels, and AVI, MOV, and MPEG formats are also available with more limited options.

Conclusion:

House of Taboo is an excellent site for those whose freaky desires extend beyond just one or two kinks. Although I'd love to see the videos actually bumped up to the quality level they're claiming to offer now, the movies look just fine as is and the photos are excellent. The quality bump combined with some search options and a full update log on the inside of the site rather than the outside of the site could really take this one to the next level.
