Nifty Stories reviewback
Nifty is an archive of erotic stories that has been around since 1992. Is it just me, or is that fucking crazy? I didn’t even know there were websites in 1992, let alone porn sites. The archive is absolutely enormous too, with “over 264,000 stories by more than 15,000 authors,” according to the site’s homepage banner. Now that’s a fuck ton of erotic lit. And the best part? It is all 100% free.
Not only is the site an absolute behemoth, but it is designed well (for an erotic lit site). I don’t know what it is, but erotic lit website designers seem to have a lot of trouble creating an enjoyable, easy to use, aesthetically pleasing online experience. So many similar sites that I’ve been to are just awful to look at and even harder to navigate. I don’t hate Nifty’s design, though.
I mean, could it be better? Definitely. But it is far from the worst erotic lit site design I’ve ever seen. It’s simple … a little dated in its wallpaper-style background and blue hyperlinked text, sure, but not horrible.
Just underneath the banner on the home page, you will find four boxes to choose from, all of which contain selected new stories, broken into sections by sexual orientation and identity: Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender. Okay, I’m all for equal representation of sexual identities and shit, but does Nifty have no heterosexual content? I guess we’ll have to see.
