Hogtied (Kink.com Channel) Review

Did you know that Hogtied.com was the first site that Kink offered – and its success is what allowed Kink to grow into the behemoth that it is today?

It’s no wonder that over 25 years later, Hogtied is still one of the most popular channels that the company offers.

But is it worth signing up to Kink just for Hogtied, and how big is the channel today?

In this review, I’ll be covering everything you need to know to make an informed decision!

Hogtied – At A Glance

Let’s start by covering some basic information about one of Kink’s largest channels!

Price: A Kink Unlimited subscription will set you back $39.99 a month, or $180 if you purchase a full year at once (which comes up to $15 a month.) This grants you access to all of Kink though, not just Hogtied – making it a better deal for the price.

Number of scenes: At the time of writing (January 24th, 2024), there are currently 1,373 scenes on Hogtied – making it one of their largest channels! Note however that a very small number of scenes are remastered versions of older scenes.

Scene length: The median scene length is 37 minutes, which is slightly shorter than the average on Kink. This is heavily skewed though by earlier scenes published on Hogtied.com – which last as little as 5-6 minutes or so. Recent scenes are longer, with the longest scene being an hour and 50 minutes.

Frequency of updates: Unfortunately, Hogtied isn’t updated as frequently as it used to be – which makes sense, now that Kink has 50+ channels to focus on. Currently, updates are coming about twice a month.

Video format: .MP4. Unfortunately, only 60 scenes (those published in 2021 and later) are available in 1080p. Scenes published between February 2007 and 2020 are available in 720p as the highest resolution, which makes up the bulk of the site. Scenes earlier than this – about 400 of the 1,373, are only available in 480p as the highest resolution. Considering the earliest video was published in 1998, this is reasonable!

Downloads: There are no download limits with Hogtied. You are welcome to download each and every scene if you want to without experience throttling, blockages or bans.

Cross-sells: There is one pre-checked cross-sell at checkout. Be sure to uncheck it if you aren’t interested in the offer!

Customer support: In a test I did with Kink, I received a response back from customer support in exactly 28 minutes. That’s pretty great!

Lexi’s Thoughts On Hogtied – The Pros

So, what do I actually think of Hogtied? Let’s start by looking at what the site does well!

Rope Bondage That Goes Beyond The Basics

Kink obviously isn’t the only BDSM site, and Hogtied isn’t the only Kink channel dedicated to bondage.

However, the rope bondage that’s featured on Kink is a huge class above everything else that I’ve seen. The tying is not only incredibly complex, but creative and erotic at the same time.

Yeah, it goes far beyond just rope around the boob and legs, and a pair of fuzzy handcuffs. This is some next-level shit.

Many of the doms are very familiar with Shibari, or a type of rope bondage that originated in Japan.

And if you want to learn some of it yourself, Kink also has another channel included with your membership called Kink University where they actually teach some of the same ties they use in their scenes!

Great Diveristy of Content

Despite the crazy number of ways Kink has come up with to tie women up, Hogtied actually has a surprising amount of diversity in their scenes – across all areas.

We’ve already talked about diversity of the knots. But there’s also a lot of diversity in the performers, too. We have mainstream stars like AJ Applegate, but there are also a lot of amateur performers too. In fact, some of these amateurs had their first ever porn shoot with Kink, and it’s rumored that a lot of the early talent came purely from word-of-mouth, from girls who were legitimately interested in experiencing what it’s like to be tied up.

Even amongst the girls, there’s a lot of diversity in the types of scenes too. We have girls being tied up, sure. But we also have girls being typed up and forced to orgasm with a Hitachi wand, women getting fucked with strap-ons, giving blowjobs, and a whole lot more.

The sheer diversity of Hogtied helps the videos seem new and exciting, despite so many scenes featuring the same underlying concept – rope bondage.

Live Shows

Hogtied is one of Kink’s channels that also features live shows, which can be a joy to watch!

These aren’t livestreams you can tune into, mind you. Rather, it’s a full live recording of what it was like to shoot the scenes within the livestream. These typically last quite a bit longer, and shows some of the ‘behind-the-scenes’ of what it’s like to produce this kind of porn.

The livestreams are hot on their own, but they’re also a nice way to mix it up when you’re bored of the other videos. I really enjoyed them!

The Cons

Now that we’ve covered the pros, let’s now look over the cons.

No Photo Sets

This is a criticism I have of all of Kink’s channels.

While you can download a zip file containing screencaps from the video, there are no additional photos to go along with the scenes – which is a shame, considering how unique the content is!

It Took Too Long For Videos To Be Released In 1080p

To be fair, Kink adopted 720p very early on, and the fact that so much of their catalog – even dating back to 2007, is available in 720p.

However, the fact that it took until 2021 for videos to begin releasing in full 1080p HD is ridiculous.

Many sites were already releasing content in 4K at that point, and Kink has no excuse for not having more of their catalog available in 1080p.

Closing Thoughts

Despite a couple of cons, Hogtied really is a wonderful site. Let’s recap by going over my list of pros and cons!

Hogtied - The Verdict


  • Very sophisticated and unique rope bondage
  • Great mix of pornstars and amateurs alike
  • Great diversity of content types
  • Live shows of certain scenes being filmed


  • No unique photo sets
  • Few videos available in 1080p. None in 4K
  • One pre-checked cross-sell

Hogtied pushes rope bondage to its limits - and pulls it off incredibly well!

Hogtied proves that Kink really are the kings of BDSM porn, and if bondage turns you on you owe it to yourself to sign up.
