18 January 2011 - It would appear that this site has died a slow and agonising death
and is no longer online... shame!

If you are a fan of beautifully bulbous bubble butts you may well recognise the name
Naomi St Claire, she has one cute curvy ass and has featured in numerous porn productions
over recent years. This time however, Naomi has taken the bull by the horns and started
up her own website. Of course it makes sense if you can entice some of your sexy
friends to get naked too and that’s what she’s done here at ForbiddenGem.com a treasure
trove of hot and horny babes waiting to empty your sack.
Naomi informed me that the site has only been live for a few weeks so I wasn’t expecting
a lot of content, in fact I was expecting the equivalent of porno tumbleweed blowing
through, but I was wrong, but more on that later.
The site design looks great, rich and colourful but not overtly fussy - the emphasis
being the gem factor so lots of sparkly accents here. Navigation takes a departure
from the norm and is left situated and so obvious you can’t miss it. Its arranged
in logical order starting with Home, Gems, Photos, Videos, Blog, Help, Links and
The girls that feature at ForbiddenGem.com are listed under ‘Gems’ - these being
Naomi St Claire, Sunshine Seiber, Angelique Le Clair, Russian Princess, Charlie Morgan,
Naughty Nikki, Vanessa Stevens, Ashlee Chambers, Isabella Star and Phoenix Grey.
Each has a sort bio so you can get to know these hotties more intimately. Having
explored this site in detail I noticed that there were a few girls not listed in
the ‘Gems’ section, such as Mindy Daniels, that actually appear on the site - I’m
not sure if they are simply guest appearances or awaiting promotion to ‘Gem’ status!
Main content is split uniformly between photos and videos and there is plenty to
go at considering the newness factor. These are duly divided up into sub sections
such as Glamour, Solo, Boy/Girl and Girl/Girl. There are currently 19 solo girl videos
plus 3 girl on girl and 7 boy/girl action scenes. Movie quality (640x480) is not
too bad but the majority are short in length. They are certainly watchable but nothing
eye poppingly original nor the scenes themselves - masturbation mainly. On a positive
note download speeds were consistently high throughout.
Photos are displayed in gallery format and to enlarge you simply click the pics as
per usual. At the bottom of each image is a ‘previous’ and ‘next’ link to view the
rest. There is no slideshow option or downloadable zip file which was disappointing.
Photos are generally 900x600 in resolution, crisp and clear despite not being the
highest resolution. Quantity is a bit hit and miss - there are 23 glamour galleries,
5 boy/girl and 3 girl/girl, containing as little as 14 pictures to over 50 per offering.
Updates appear to be running at two per week (one video and one photo gallery) however
barring the updates on the home page nothing is date stamped.
I must confess to wondering exactly what this site is all about. It’s a little bit
of everything but not a lot of anything in particular. When I first viewed the promo
tour page I was expecting a classy glamour site exploiting the ‘forbidden’ theme
but didn’t really get that (one photo gallery even has the ultra nichey ‘balloons
with girl‘ type set… does that have a place here? Don‘t think so). Having seen that
there was harder material I then expected plenty of in your face fucking but didn’t
really get that either. All in all it’s a bit tame, which would be okay if it was
100% softcore glamour but it isn’t.
I adore Naomi St Claire’s work (she is fucking hot too - and would love to see more
of her posing in stockings and lingerie) and feel that if the site direction is addressed
- maybe focus on the best aspects, which surely is the solo glam angle, then this
site may well succeed and attain gem status. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot I
like about this site (it gave me a boner) but it needs some tweaking to get that
elite formula just right.
