Summary
BaDoink is essentially a large DVD archive that throws in some pretty nifty tech elements to make your porn surfing (and storage) a stress free experience. When we first looked at the site back in 2007, we were less than impressed, but thanks to a completely updated interface and a huge increase in content quantity (and in most cases, quality), Iím pleased to say that these guys are finally competing with the big boys on the DVD scene. Finally, to top it all off, theyíre offering Richardís Realm users a special monthly membership price of $24.95 (usually over $39) - just click here to sign up!

General
After reading my esteemed colleagueís previous review, I was dreading this one to be honest - back in 2007, the site didnít have enough content (and much of it was poor quality), the user interface was clever but clunky, there was no hassle free iPod/iPhone compatibility, download speeds were slow and the pricing was over-complicated... I am very pleased to say, however, that all of these issues have since been rectified, finally making BaDoink a top contender in the oversubscribed world of the DVD download site.

The idea behind the site is actually pretty simple - you just download a nifty little piece of software called BaDoink Ultra, and youíre away. It becomes a sort of self-contained iTunes style porn library - you connect to the siteís DVD archive through the program & download the movies that you like the look of. Theyíre then forever stored on BaDoink Ultra (as well as on your hard drive), and you can either watch them from within the program, use the integrated ĎEasy Burnerí to burn them to DVD or export them to iPod format, or use ĎEasyOnTVí to watch them on your television via an Xbox360, Playstation3 or other uPnP device. You can also import movies that are already on your hard drive from other sites, so all of your porn is in one place. Sounds complicated, but believe me; youíll get the hang of it in 10 seconds flat! Of course, you donít have to download the software - if youíre a bit of a technophobe (or are surfing on the sly) you can also use the site the good old fashioned way, via your browser - youíll just miss out on a bit of the gadgetry!

Content
The DVD archive on BaDoink is massive, featuring 7,777 full DVDs, so as you can imagine, the quality and genres here are pretty wide ranging! As far as I can tell, there isnít any exclusive content, but thatís not unusual when it comes to DVD sites - what you will find are movies from all over the world, from both top name studios and obscure little companies, some of which you may have seen before, many of which you wonít. They literally cover everything, from amateur and teen to anal fisting and peeing, with a healthy dose of everything else in between!

The content archive within the BaDoink software is basically set out like a website, with a navbar and various side navigation panels that will take you where you want to go - the homepage displays the most recent DVDs and the DVD of the Day, and there are links to most downloaded and best rated movies, plus a massive category list and a search box. Just click on the Search tab in the navbar, and youíll be taken to the siteís entire DVD catalogue. I had a couple of issues browsing the content - it seems that theyíre occasionally a little too liberal with their tags, as I searched for some keywords only to find that the content brought back didnít feature quite what I was looking for. Donít bother changing the number of items displayed per page either - this seems to confuse things and will often return 0 results! My only other complaint is that the DVD Categories list returns a list of scenes, not full DVDs - no biggie, but being the pedantic sort I found it pretty irritating!

Videos
As Iíve said, there are 7,777 full DVDs on BaDoink so far, which equates to over 40,000 individual movie scenes - this is a colossal number, so expect to spend a little time trawling to find exactly what youíre after! When you download them within BaDoink Ultra, theyíre moved straight to your library to join your other movies, and itís only then that youíll find out what resolution they are - the main size I found was 640x480px, but there are apparently higher definition offerings here too, youíll just have to dig about a bit. The main format is MP4, although you can also stream the movies in the siteís Flash player, which has a thumbnail timeline that lets you jump to other parts of the scene. They also have a mobile site thatís free to access for all members - just visit BaDoink on your phone, and youíll be taken straight there.

Updates
