Your Host: I’m a US-based freelance writer, erotica collector, and webmaster of the vintage erotica website DeltaofVenus.com, among other things. I’ve been dealing internet smut since 2002 and have always been struck by the relative lack of adult review sites out there, especially ones that seek out quality porn and erotica that’s off the (very well) beaten path. Thus, IntelliSmut.com.
Obviously, these reviews are my opinions and aren’t going to jive with everyone’s tastes. Getting on my soapbox for a moment here – I gotta say most mainstream porn doesn’t appeal to me in the least. Genetically-engineered pornstars pounding away at each other, all that fake moaning and carrying on, the casual misogyny, the ridiculous positions, et cetera. Not a turn-on for me. I like my erotica, whether it’s polished & artful or raw & dirty, to have some level of authenticity, craft, and/or show me something I haven’t seen before. If you agree, chances are you’ll like at least some of the sites on here.
I try to keep things simple and feature quality over quantity – you’re not going to find hundreds upon hundreds of sites reviewed, but the ones that are will be well worth joining.
The evaluations and reviews are straightforward:
One rating from 1-5. Generally speaking – 3 is worth checking out (especially if you like the niche), 4 is excellent, with 5 being the highest recommendation. Anything lower probably won’t make the cut, but you never know.
The review gives you a general tour of the site in question – what it’s all about, what content (images, video, writing, etc) you can expect to find, how everything’s laid out, etc. I’ll also touch on the design, ease of navigation, both quality and quantity of material, frequency of updates, cost vs. value, and other specifics that come up. A few sample images give you some visual ideas of what you can expect (though the more explicit stuff is left for the sites themselves).
Comments on reviews are welcome too – if you’ve been a member of the website and have something to add, have any questions about it or the review itself, or whatever – please feel free to post. Recommendations are much appreciated as well. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy it here!
