What is the deal with GUBA?
I have been seeing ads for quite some time now about a site called GUBA. This has become a common link on spanking blogs, but I never really paid much attention because I am generally not impressed with spanking content found on sites that are not spanking specific. But, I finally decided to check it out. As is my custom with spanking sites, I do not review any sites that I have not had a membership to. So I dropped $14.95 and signed up for a months membership.
Here is how it works. As we all know there are many newsgroups out there. I have always found newsgroups to be somewhat of a pain in the ass because there is so much advertising mixed in with the content. In addition, there are special programs needed to join files, strange video formats, and just too much crap to wade through to be worth my time. GUBA is a program that automates the process and only indexes complete files and no spam. They break all of the content into different categories to make it easier to find. You can also search all of the videos and pictures for whatever you are looking for. While skeptical at first, I must admit that I am impressed. There are very few online sites in which you get more than 1000 video updates a day.
I was also impressed at the amount of spanking content. Due to the volume of content, they only keep 1 weeks worth of pictures and videos in their database. As of this morning, there are 373 spanking videos, and 5665 spanking pictures. The Fem Dom category has 826 pictures and 81 few dom videos. The teen spanking category has 2176 pictures and just a few videos. The BDSM category has 1120 pictures and 72 videos. The Bondage category has 11808 pictures and 60 videos. There are many other categories within our genre such as alt.sex.femdom (828 pics), bondage.male (311 pictures), fisting, and too many more to name.
I like the fact that as a non-member, you can view thumbnail previews of all of their content, based on a keyword search, or by browsing the categories. I have never visited a site in which I could preview all of the potential content before signing up. While most of my adult online browsing is focused on spanking, my tastes vary and I sometimes seek out other adult content. Guba has actually opened my eyes to a few types of content that I did not know existed on the web. As you may have noticed, I am somewhat of a fan of voyeur style videos. My experience with voyeur siyes is that most of them suck and feature staged voyeur scenes. But my eyes have now been opened to the world of Web Cam Videos. I had no idea there was so much of this content around. I have been enjoying all of the college dorm videos in which young couples turn on their web cams and record their sex. There are literally hundreds of these videos on GUBA in the Web Cam Videos, amateur videos, teen female, and girlfriends categories. I guess it only makes sense that with the current prices of web cams that this would become a common practice, but I simply had no idea there were so many hot amateur scenes of this nature. The voyeurism category is actually that, real voyeur videos. We are talking about people actually peeping in other peoples windows, as well as spy cams, real upskirts, people having sex in cars and alleys, as well as hidden locker room and shower videos.
So, in all fairness to GUBA, the site rocks. There is more updated daily spanking cotent than just about any site on the web. Their claim of 22 thousand videos and 1.5 million pictures is actually true and for a large variety of pictures and videos, I think it is worth the $15. I am sure this is yet another membership that I will allow to rebill for many years. Check it out yourself by doing a search in the box below (spanking is a good start, but you get more returns by directly browsing the spanking videos and spanking pictures categories.
Comments:I saw some links earlier on this post for movies that showed some flogging situations that appeared to be prison settings.
I thought it was guba... but I don't see the links anymore?
IMPORTANT IMPORTANT. At http://www.thespankingnews.com/reviews/guba.html there is another article on GUBA. It describes a more powerful way to use GUBA than Categories and Searches. This article says you can request others to post (you fill in). For example you can make a request to access all the videos of Linda at Girls Boarding School for the last 3 months. Or Rosaleen at spankmybottom.com for the last 4 months. You get the idea. And people actually answer these requests. And that is, of course, the point.
Now we could debate the ethics of this. It is the same debate as about Kazaa and peer-to-peer networks for music. You aren't paying (although the responder pay'd but that is only one pay for two people). If the ethics do not bother you, this is obviously a more powerful way to use GUBA.
There is one exception to my "more powerful" claim. The other good thing about GUBA is that it introduces you to material different than what you are used to. Obviously the above goes 180 degrees in the other direction. Nonetheless, the value of what is above is obvious.
