Spiky bracelets, panties adorned with pink skulls, fishnets galore, endless tattoos, and dreadlocked hair extensions. No, I'm not talking about a reclusive high school clique; I'm talking about the cast of GothRockgirls.com, a site that focuses squarely on that special kind of relationship between girls who need to externalize their inner darkness. The site's pre-login front page is pretty well put together, and offers a reasonable look at what lies beyond the subscription frontier. Once inside, it's all goth girls, all the time, stimulating each other in a number of ways. And yes, there are condoms in play here. Despite there not being any real wang in attendance, the ladies felt the need to wrap their toys before playing with them.
Navigation once you're in is a snap. There are two columns of videos, three rows each, four pages deep. Each video offers Windows Media in HD, standard definition, and low resolutions, usually with clips, but always offering the full scene in a single download. However, both the HD and SD downloads seemed to end up getting me a video at 960x540. Certainly nothing to sneeze at but it's not clear what separates HD from SD. Also available are sizes and formats (mp4) to fit your iPhone, iPod, and presumably PSP screens. The options for video are solid all around. Unfortunately for photo hounds, the same can't be said about the availability of pictures. The only thing I found were the thumbnails to introduce each video. No high-res off-screen snaps anywhere. If you can get past that, you'll probably enjoy the videos just fine.
They also have Behind the Scenes clips showing some edited or extra material shot from behind the camera that caught the good stuff. Also promised in the future is a t-shirt section where you can get wearable merchandise to make yourself a walking billboard for the site. When this feature will be fully implemented remains to be seen. However, it could very easily still be in development as the site itself isn't that old. The first videos went up back on Valentine's Day of this year. The most recent was released on July 25, just a couple days prior to this writing. The only oddball thing is, the oldest are on the front page, and the newest are buried on the last page in the series. It's manageable, and the quality and content is consistent throughout, so it's not a big deal really, just weird.
The longevity of the site depends largely on whether you like the still somewhat small cast (several girls reappear in many of the vids) and if the same sequence of events over and over appeals to you. They kiss a little, squeeze a boob, and then spend the rest of the time spitting on, licking up, and otherwise pounding vag. Some new toys appear here and there (though the same double-headed purple dildo showed up time and time again), but a bit more variety overall would have been fine with me, especially since the Goth-ness starts to make the girls kind of run together and lose their identities.
Still, for those out for some chicks in striped leggings and too many piercings lezzing it up with their gal pals, you could waste a good chunk of your life here. As the site grows, I hope to see a bit more variety, but it's definitely got a solid foundation and winning formula in place as it is.
