From the first time you access asstr.org you are immediately hooked. The first thing you see is a disclaimer explaining what you can expect inside, but it is not only presented with text, it is accompanied by an artsy drawing of a sensual lady. This combination serves to wet your appetite enough for you to be curious and want to enter. All while feeding both your desire for imagination and erotic material.
Once inside, you’ll notice that the layout was a bit tricky at first, since the sexy imagery is substituted by a text-only database, which is not bad, but it does appear slightly misleading. Still, if you are checking out a site like asstr.org then it is safe to say you are not there for the sexual imagery it could present, but the enveloping narrative.
The main issue with asstr.org is that since it conducts itself like a database, then the content is presented as such. Categories or tags are not present, just text, or in some cases images, which kind of goes against the line that the site originally made you believe it was trying to follow.
One of the most discouraging things about asstr.org is that it does not seem to know what it wants to be. As mentioned before, it greets you with nice imagery, only to later take it away, to later bring it back. asstr.org seems to be a bit all over the place in this regard, since the content is unclear as to what it is.
Because of this, you may find yourself clicking on a link, thinking that it will redirect you to a short story and it instead shows you an image or vice versa. These issues make it hard to consider this site as one of the best porn sites for erotic material. Sure, it hides the images it presents behind the concept that they are “image short stories” but that seems like a lazy way to not categorize properly.
