As online adult institutions go, there aren’t many that can live with Danni.com. This site has been online since 1995, when former stripper Danni Ashe was enticed by the opportunities presented by the emerging online porn biz. Those pioneering days have long gone, of course, but her site is still around, and it remains one of the premier destinations for glamour erotica on the net.
Danni.com bears some similarities to its age-old softcore rival Playboy. The content is typically non-explicit, and there’s a definite attempt to provide ‘entertainment’ in the form of nude jokes, live events and so on. There are important differences between the two productions, however. Danni.com does dabble with harder content, including masturbation and girl-girl action, and the models are the regular large-chested ladies of the American porn industry rather than Playboy’s rooster of nubile amateurs. This site also prides itself on its professionally produced spoof-style features, most of which feature several girls, which are definitely a cut above the entertainment served up by most glamour sites.
Photos come in only one resolution (2000 pixels), though the site offers an innovative zoom in/out feature that allows you incrementally to increase or decrease the resolution with no loss of sharpness. You’ll be playing with that for a while! The images are extremely well shot and natural looking, and the photo collection is certainly large enough to keep you occupied for a long long time (especially once you realise that the photo section is only half the story and that many of the videos have accompanying high quality image galleries).
Video quality varies and overall is perhaps a little bit of a disappointment, especially as the best dimensions of 960×540 aren’t strictly speaking high definition, as the site claims. They’re still pretty good, however, but obviously you won’t enjoy such stellar resolution as you delve into the archives. The best aspects of the videos are the top notch production values and the entertainment levels – the girls really look like they are enjoying themselves, and in fact the site offers quite a lot of live content, with a couple of new shows every week featuring a couple of pornstars playing with themselves and teasing you on a bed.
The site’s remarkable vintage is reflected in its somewhat dated-looking design, but navigation isn’t an issue thanks to the useful (and very numerous) content tags and the separate directories for models of the day and casting models. The model directory can also be viewed in reverse chronological order, which I always think is a helpful feature. Danni.com usually updates with at least one item and sometimes more every day, so there’s a great flow of new content, and the huge ‘Vault’ section featuring their older categories such as Honest Bra and Retro Girls will keep you occupied if you manage to exhaust the new stuff.
There’s no doubt that Danni.com is a high quality and very enjoyable glamour megasite. The only nagging doubt I had was that it seems a little bit to be running on autopilot, and that a redesign, some new ideas and some genuine high definition content would really send it into the erotic stratosphere. But it’s still a cracking site. Here’s to the next 15 years!
