Adult themed WP website - Need harsh criticism (NSFW) (7 posts)

    Hi folks,

    First off, thanks to anybody willing to work with an adult site. The site I'm asking for review of is:

    http://slavewizard.com/bondagedaily/

    I am not a good designer, so be as harsh as possible. What looks good to me has looked rather shabby to some surfers in the past (on other sites).

    Thanks again :)
    Steve

    Not too shabby. Good 'Police Blotter' effect with the font (like the old Private Detective rags?).

    Two things leaped out at me:
    1) Fix that header! Proportions and balancing are all whacky.
    2) Use float to get text to wrap around images: http://codex.wordpress.org/Wrapping_Text_Around_Images

    The "Police Blotter" effect came from the "Anarchy" theme; I wish I could take credit for it.

    I'll look at the other.

    Thanks Yosemite!

    Your bottom-most (no pun intended) sidebar with the white border is messed up a bit. The red bars actually float over the white border.

    As someone that has been active in the lifestyle for "awhile", it seems as if your building a blog of photo shoots and not really adding items suited for comments or "chatter". I would push the site one way or the other. If your actually looking for feedback our writing needs to encourage feedback. I know many people (and groups) that would most likely enjoy a chattable blog like what you can have potential on making, many of these ppl currently use irc or local forums, to encourage these users would require location they would see others particapating in, not a site that projects static images or actions nor would they (imho) be looking at "fluff", lifestylers tend to avoid tease photos as vinallia.

    You really need to label that NSFW, just because it is a theme for an adult site doesn't mean that there are adult images on it.

    Thanks everyone for the comments so far.

    Yosemite, I think I will stick with the header, and text layout as is. That's just personal taste, and I can see myself changing my mind if I got a flood of "yechhh" comment, lol.

    IronMac, that's the next thing to fix after this post.

    Tutor, the goal is commercial. The photos are linked to sponsors, and I get a piece of the action if the surfer likes enough of the shoot to buy a membership in that site. I hope I didn't lead anyone to the other impression; heck, it would be funny if I had people in the scene making comments about the "fakery" of the shoots, but it might cost me sales. Like I said in the comments, I'm just adding fuel for people's fantasys. Most enthusiasts have already "seen that, done that".

    I do need to add more text content, as some of the pics are coming from sponsor feeds, and I need to customize those. My goal was to add some of my own stories in, but they're not flowing while I get the site up.

    Ajd777, thanks for the headsup on that. I am not seeing an option to edit the title of the thread. Is there a mod who can add the NSFW label to this thread?
