My Opinion About IllustratedLoveStories

Illustrated Love Stories isn't simply a collection of original erotica. On this site the sex and the tales are brought to life through 3D images shot specifically for each of the narratives. Through the images you can life the fantasies and while on the tour you do get access to some free stories, only through joining and supporting the writers and artists will you be able to save and keep the content.

The members' area is relatively amateur. Basically, there is an index of content listed with a thumbnail preview of the illustrations and a title of the accompanying story. You need to click the thumbnail to get to an associated page, which can either include a single story, stand-alone sounds and animations, images of Kama Sutra and other sex moves. There isn't an explanation for any of these items in the index, there isn't even a synopsis for any of the profiled stories or animations and some of the picture sections like 'fashion images' are just a series of pictures that strike me as trial and error attempts than actual content that is erotic or sexy in any way.

So far, there are 28 story file downloads and these appear to be wrapped up in Zip files. Again, you need only click the thumbnail for direct download, or so the instructions tell me. Instead I find myself on a page telling me that my download speed is limited, which, of course it is because I only pay for a specific speed per month, which has never caused issues, and urging me to purchase a program called Rapid Share. For whatever bizarre reason, I notice that it is going to take me 20 minutes to download a simple 84MB Zip file. Considering that just a few hours ago I spent less than two minutes downloading a 900MB HD video file from another site, I was feeling less than impressed.

Once you have the Zip, you'll need to open the html files to read the various chapters of each story. Images are in a different file. It's a real pain in the ass and after all the waiting, I couldn't even find a complete story file that was actually working, although I was able to open a chapter, which ended up having one sentence of text in it. Honestly, this was the worst set-up I've ever seen on any similar site. On the other hand, the stories listed in the index were easy to open and view. The illustrations are decent enough, although the stories aren't particularly deep or anything. In fact, they are pretty straight-forward tales that lead to sex.

As mentioned, there are another 13 sound and animation stories. They aren't downloadable, but here you get some movement in the video images. Strangely, in the films I watched, the video and sound files were separate and some of the scenes didn't have sound at all. Sometimes, the sound seemed synchronized with the video, other times it didn't and in at least one video called 'Bad Luck' the video played for a minute while the sound ended after several seconds. As for updates, there aren't content dates, so it's impossible to tell when the next video or animated story will be showing up, but there aren't bonuses or extras to keep you busy no matter how long or short the wait.

Final Verdict

I can think of a lot of different ways to spend my money and purchasing a membership to Illustrated Love Stories is not one of them. I felt like someone was pulling one over on me when I got into the members' area. Files took way too long to download and you're urged to make a second purchase that promises to speed up the process, even though I know that I have a perfectly good and fast connection. Some of the downloadable story files were not working and even when it came to the sound/animation combination films, with unsynchronized sound and repetitive actions, I wasn't feeling it. I don't know, the site felt sloppy to me and personally, I can't justify paying for any of the available content, at least not at this point in time.
