The video options are very good indeed. All videos are available for downloading in .WMV, .MOV and .MP4 (for handheld) formats and they can also be streamed in Flash Player. Strangely though, all streaming videos are full length only and all downloads are short clips only. The best quality videos available here usually play at 720x480px. There are no ZIP downloads on any of the galleries, and from what I saw photo sizes do vary quite considerably on the site.
You know, it's really nice of ForbiddenEast.com to explain why there is genital blurring on some of their videos. Us Japanese porn fans have come to expect it, unfortunately, but I can't think of any other site that bothered to explain this! They are also quite right to say that we should instead use our imaginations - a bit of blurring should not distract you from the bigger picture of what is going on in these excellent videos and galleries.
There is some exclusive content on this site but for the most part it relies on licensed content. This isn't a problem and, on the contrary, I think it actually helps the site as it gives you a nice variety of content from a variety of sources. Some of the content, photo sets especially, do look a little bit older so they are at least digging back into the past for some of their content. It is fair to say that this really is a very good site despite some presentational annoyances.
Forbidden East.com is a thoroughly enjoyable and very high class Asian fetish and bondage site that knows exactly what its members are looking for. Exclusive content and a high quality navigation are two things that it doesn't have on its side, but the content exudes such a regular air of utter quality that you can easily ignore these problems and just enjoy a really quite excellent selection of videos and galleries.
