At a first glance, bdsmlibrary.com/stories may appear as a perfectly organized database of erotic stories that has all you would want from an erotic fiction site; however, once you take a closer look, you’ll realize that it contains a strange organizational structure that looks neat, but is far from friendly.
The layout keeps everything in its place, but the site offers no tags or clear categories, it merely mentions them right next to the story titles. This makes browsing the titles like swimming in an ocean of text, since the categories mentioned for each story are merely presented in text with no hyperlinks.
bdsmlibrary.com/stories does feature a way of finding stories in a less problematic way, but since it only allows users to search via title or author, it really does nothing for newcomers who have not yet gotten accustomed to the site’s way of doing things.
The content itself is varied and all BDSM related, with varying degrees of intensity to appeal to a wider audience. Still, it does have some issues when reading, like the need to click a title to be sent to a summary where you find links to what you think are the stories, only to be redirected to a list of the site’s terminology, which is useful, but this random placing is unpleasant.
The lack of visual elements is also something that catches your eye in a negative way, for you do not even have the expectation of some nice imagery as you get around the complexity of the site.
bdsmlibrary.com/stories cannot be compared to the top porn sites that offer erotic fiction because it is very hard to navigate and understand. Browsing through its content sometimes feels like a chore instead of something enjoyable, which is the opposite emotion it should be eliciting.
