Content:

The Swank Pass collection is very large currently at over 9100 galleries and well over 3100 videos. In addition to the regular video and photo materials, members also get access to a magazine archive section that has over 220 issues of over a dozen different print publications such as Swank Magazine, Genesis Magazine, and Leg World. It looks like the magazine issue section stopped updating in 2008, but members can expect a new addition to the overall collection every single day. These generally consist of a photo gallery or a video.

Swank Pass covers a wide variety of porno categories, but the majority of what you'll see here is pretty typical and straightforward smut that features solo posing, one-on-one hardcore encounters including both lesbian and straight action, and a bit of group sex and fetish fun here and there. You'll see some of the biggest names and learn from the last 10 years or so as well as plenty of unknowns and amateurs you probably aren't familiar with.

I believe that significantly less than half of the overall collection here is exclusive to the Swank Pass network. Much of what's available here has a definite magazine feel to it in terms of style, and the photos in particular seem very posed and fake. Even those who prefer a magazine style of shooting may be a bit disappointed in things since the quality level isn't exactly where you would expect. The photos here can be a bit smaller and lower in quality than you would imagine from a magazine based site, and the video quality is all over the map ranging from files with very small dimensions and low bitrates to some fairly decent quality flicks with bitrates going up to about 2000 kbps.

Features & Navigation:

Although the Swank Pass tour pages don't preview the entire collection, they do offer a pretty easy to use search tool that allows you to check out a significant portion of the network's materials. You can get a very good sense of the model selection and quality level, and you can check out an alphabetized list of all of the available models.

Layout and navigation are typically a bit different on magazine based site than on your average Internet smut collection, but Swank Pass breaks the pattern. The members area here is very straightforward and basic with navigation menus near the top and search tools that include a basic keyword search box, a drop-down menu with dozens of categories to choose from, and an advanced search page that allows you to combine some of the various search attributes to make your results even more specific.

When it comes to accessing the materials here, I thought things could use a bit of work. While the options for the photo materials remain consistent with thumbnail galleries, automatic, variable speed slideshows, and ZIP file downloads, things vary more in the video section. The exact options available change from flick to flick. Some of these are only offered in WMV format in a single quality level while others are offered in multiple quality levels and in other formats including Flash streaming and MP4.

Conclusion:

In the end, I think the fact that the majority of the materials found here at Swank Pass are nonexclusive really hurts this otherwise OK network. The quality level doesn't remain consistent because the materials come from so many different sources, and the overall collection just seems to lack the personality and defined style that I'm used to seeing on magazine based sites. The sheer volume of content here may lure you in, but I think there are probably better networks for your buck.
