KinkyCards.com: When you want to say, "Spank Me!"
Jul 30, 2002 (Updated Jul 30, 2002)
I tried to find a tastefully sensual card that I could send my husband at work at KinkyCards.com, and had no luck. This web site is truly kinky! I ended up sending a card to his personal email address.
By entering this you are agreeing that you are legally an adult, that you will not send any cards from this site to someone who is not a legal adult, and that you are sending your card to someone who will appreciate this type of greeting.
Kinkycards.com is a division of Passion Productions. This free site is supported in whole by the adult ads ubiquitous throughout the site. If you don't want to see flashing ads for Viagra and hard core pornography, don't enter. You are given an opportunity to opt-in to their newsletter every time you send or receive a card. This does appear to be truly opt-in. In my experience, if anything, I have been receiving less adult ads since I used this site than before. They have both a web form for removal on the same page as their mail policy, http://www.kinkycards.com/homeframe.htx?&PAGENAME=/mailpolicy.htm, and email removal through email@example.com.
Kinky Cards has over 2000 free cards to choose from. On the face of these card you'll find everything from tame to extreme, coupons for "a night tortuously long night wishing you never met me," sexy costumes, bondage, submission, domination, and fetish. If the subject matter of these cards is too extreme for you, you might want to visit their more conventional, softcore sister site, NaughtyCards.com.
The cards are not searchable. The search box at the top of each category or listing page does not search the cards. It an adult product search of Adult Toy Chest.
The photographs used on the cards are high quality and many are quite artistic. Passion Productions photographer, Joshua Carlberg, holds monthly photo shoots in the San Francisco area, so the content stays fresh and up-to-date. If you are over 18 and so inclined you can apply to appear on their cards by sending a photograph to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sending and Receiving
Sending a kinky card is easy. Clinking on an individual listing will take you to a Create your Kinky Card page with the front photo and an area for text. You can use HTML in your text to format you greeting. Enter your name and email address and your recipient's name and email address, select whether or not to join their Bi-Monthly Announcement list, certify that both you and the receiver are legal adult, then click "Send this Card Now" or "Preview this Card Now."
Kinky Cards are immediately delivered. Both the sender and recipient receive a notice for the card. The primary disadvantage of using this site is that you can't schedule when the cards are sent. The notice is text email that includes links to adult toys and entertainment. Cards are
available for pick up for at least two weeks online.
Don't send a kinky card to anyone at work. You and/or your recipient could be sued for sexual harassment.
This site makes this heading an unintended pun. If the site were searchable and organized more to maximize the display of cards than advertisements, and the cards were schedulable, I would give this site a higher rating overall. None the less, the cards are free, high quality, easy to send, and customizable. I was teetering between rating Kinky Cards three or four stars. The exceptional quality and selection of kinky greetings at this website pushed me over the edge to rating this a four star website. If you're an adult looking to arouse an adult lover with an extreme greeting, Kinky Cards is a great place to satisfy your desire.
