Inside Liandra Dahl

I first became acquainted with Liandra on my social networking site, she struck me as being a very open and honest…kinkster…yes that’s exactly what she is and therefore explains my attraction to her.  I’m rarely intrigued by every day people, they just don’t have that spark to ignite my fire.

After learning that she was starting up her own site I just couldn’t resist asking her if she would like me to review it.  My reasons weren’t totally altruistic, I knew she had put up some naughty images of herself that for obvious reasons she couldn’t post on the social networking site.  😉

Little did I know I would get so much more…

I’ve never been a member of an adult site before so I really didn’t know what to expect.  Yes, I knew that it would be naughty but I just wasn’t sure how naughty.

I logged on to the site and was surprised with the comic strip format which was fresh and inspired.  There in the middle of the screen sits a stylised image of Liandra open-legged inviting you to log in.

The site is still under construction so I’m unable to give the site a full review, perhaps Liandra will invite me back when all the sections are up and running.  But as the site stands at the moment it’s very impressive, taking you in to the naughty and kinky world of Liandra Dahl. There are areas that have yet to go live but I get the feeling this will be a work in progress over the coming months as the creative juices flow. I also found the navigation a little inconsistent on a couple of occasions, again possibly due to it being a work in progress.

Once logged in you can access a gallery of images of Liandra and a video gallery too. The videos play in a pop-up window and are of great quality. The themes of these videos are notable by their variety and just how different they are from other sites. They include readings from erotic literature, masturbation, girl-on-girl and pegging (one of my particular favourites).

Liandra’s blog is filled with personal entries and not just the trite blogging that you see on so many sites, there are observation and of course news about up and coming features on the site.  Of particular interest was the mention of her shooting some clips for the site featuring male bisexuals, I’ll be keeping my eye out for that. Yes, this is a real blog that holds your interest by being filled with real content.

The current version of Liandra’s website contains the first edition of a comic strip featuring the gorgeous Miss Dahl as the super hero.  Someone has really put some time and effort in to conceiving and creating this online world and it shows.

To give a personal and intensely intimate touch Liandra also has a Camshow every Thursday between 11am and 5pm for you to get close up and personal.

When finished the site will have a forum for you to hold discussions with like minded visitors to Liandra’s world. The possibilities of this section will of course increase exponentially as the number of members and contributors increases.

I also spotted a VIP area which isn’t up and running yet but intrigues me.

Overall  I found myself feeling really excited about this site, it has the makings of a new and inspirational place for like minded individuals to hang out and enjoy the delights on offer. It’s totally unlike the huge number of carbon copy adult pay sites that seem to think purveying countless images of naked young girls is all that visitors want. Liandra wants to offer more, a rounded site that treats its visitors as mature sexual creatures.

I can’t wait to see the finished product.

Foreplay Magazine Review

Foreplay Magazine is a new kind of adult publication and for that let me say a quiet Hallelujah!

That may sound a bit odd but before I explain how different it is let me explain my thoughts on other adult periodicals. Some are specialist and therefore do not have a wide audience. They are great for what you could generally call special interest groups but not something that the wider porn loving public would generally buy. Then there are the decreasing number of more general pornographic magazines. These are struggling because there is little to differentiate them from each other but more importantly the Internet is providing most of what they can provide – for free.

So is there a space in the market for a new pornographic periodical?

The people behind Foreplay magazine like to think so. With an editorial staff that could best be described as eclectic and fun loving they cover a diverse range of topics around sex, sexuality,  relationships and kink in their publication.

Foreplay Magazine is probably very different from anything you’ve seen before. First of all it’s in a small format, easy to hold, easy to read and easy to slip quietly away when you aren’t reading it. Of its 200 pages, just under one third is ads. However they do not intrude as they occupy the back section of the magazine. Their collection of chat lines, stores, kinky getaways and personal services are there if you want them, not in your face.

What is also not in your face is page after page of models with their legs open and pouty poses. If you are looking for acres of naked flesh on display Foreplay isn’t the mag for you.

Foreplay does however offer something that has become all but absent from adult magazines in the last ten years or so – fun. You may disagree but I find a lot of the editorial in other adult mags to be joyless and formulaic, not something that Foreplay could be accused of. Its style is frank, open and honest. It’s about sexuality, not just about jacking off. But if you do want to jack off then there’s some very nice erotic fiction for you to read, in my opinion a far more fulfilling way to become aroused than airbrushed pictures.

Some of the sections in Foreplay are what you’d expect, the aforementioned erotic fiction, letters page and reviews of DVDs, toys and clubs. What will come as a refreshing change to anyone used to “traditional” porn mags is features like the one about a CFNM fetish party, a report from Torture Garden in Italy and an honest and therefore enlightening piece by Jane Fae about being a transvestite and the attitudes of others towards TV men.

I can thoroughly recommend Foreplay Magazine to anyone wanting something a little different from their adult mags. As Suze put it, Foreplay is like the adult version of readers Digest, and they won’t try and get you to enter into a prize draw!
