in the business. Very New York, but very well written,
beautifully designed, and easy to navigate.
Nightcharm -- reminds
us of a hard-hitting gay male version of our own site; while
we're certainly not identical, there's a similar attempt

a little raunchier. We think you'll like them.

Museum of Sex bills itself as "the first mainstream sex magazine

interesting news, essays, erotic stories, and has probably the only retired Bishop

Asia Carrera -- award
winning, well-designed, funny, very personal, sometimes touching
site. It's very much adult film star Asia's world on the web.

adult web sites as "banner filled

and not to sneer, regardless of your commitment. A substantial
library, forums, interaction, and a store, all carefully monitored
to stay friendly and safe.
JEN n DAVE's Home Page!
-- a refreshing view of sex; the real, here-to-have-fun,
not-a-glossy-package, smile-on-your-face kind. Lots of free pictures,
a web cam, some commentary, and a lot of personality. You have
to work hard not to love it.
Place -- a site devoted to "watersports"
(urination as an erotic activity). Easy to navigate, intelligently
written, often funny, lots of solid information, and a breezy,
not-a-fetish feel about the whole site. A fine place to visit
if you're into "watersports," but maybe even more interesting
if you're curious, but turned off by the usual treatment of these
activities as a dark fetish.
Persian Kitty -- over
130,000 free pics of, well, you know.

well-designed site, and almost no advertising when we visited.

a need for more positive sex education. Tired of educational policies
that restricted teachers from discussing issues such as safer sex and

Guides & Link Sites
badboynews.com -- Heavily
updated site linking to sex news, articles, pictures, and humor.
Easy to navigate, very current, and often points you to things
you'd have no other way to find.
DungeonNet.com -- "The most comprehensive
directory of BDSM websites in the world." Strictly a links
site, but a very well designed one. Loads quickly, very neatly
categorized, navigation is excellent, the index is well laid
out, it has what appears to be a good search engine, and the
advertising was minimal and tasteful when we visited. Definitely
in the category of "do one thing and do it well" sites.
Erotica Index -- a
Yahoo style index for erotica. It has both links by categories
and a good search engine, and the webmaster appears to have worked
hard to screen deceptive sites out of the listings. The layout
is good, and the advertising was non-deceptive and appropriately
placed when we visited.
Pics Of Sex -- "Hardcore
smut you have to see to believe," it is primarily a pictures
link site, although there is an "erotic stories" section,
and a few pictures on the site. Navigation could be slightly
better in places, but it's largely free of deceptive advertising
and well categorized.

as "The Official Adult Links Site of the New Millenium."

and quality (and, of course, sexiness). Truly a thinking person's
guide to sex on the net.

to Adult Sites designed for women," specializes in links
to sites of interest to heterosexual women. Console free, no
deceptive advertising when we visited, and the navigation is
very clean. Good source for beefcake photo sites.

an invitation only and well categorized links page, primarily
specializing in picture and video links. All links to free sites,
and a conscientious effort by the webmaster to assure that the
sites are not links to links or console clogged.
Naughty Lynx -- a Yahoo-style
listing for adult sites
Richard's Realm --
Easy links to more than 1500 quality sites with free pictures.
Sinfoseek -- Links
separated by category, very compartmentalized, with an adult search
Links -- "The Easy Way To Sex On
The Web." Designed for two-clicks-to-a-destination use. Good concept,
and the advertising doesn't interfere with the working parts of the
site. Lacks descriptions in some spots (which the webmaster says he's
working on), and does pop up a half screen ad as you leave, but it's
a particularly well planned and very functional links site.
