Being home to more than a thousand erotic fiction authors, Asstr has gained a lot of attention from the fans of sex stories. The newsgroup alt.sex.stories has helped this site to get born in 1998, and it is still taking care of asstr.org - happily or unfortunately, almost nothing has changed since the launch.
This platform is an FTP site, and it may cause some problems for the users who have never used such systems. You should see the site by yourself to understand what it is.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. As the name suggests, FTP is used to transfer files between computers on a network. You can use FTP to exchange files between computer accounts, transfer files between an account and a desktop computer, or access online software archives.
Asstr org is a text-based platform, so you will not find there any other types of content. However, there are so many stories that you will rather dig into them and forget about videos and pictures than leave it being dissatisfied.
The site has a pretty good and simple structure, minimalistic design, and plenty of stories, and their number is constantly growing. Yet, the asstr.org reviews tell that the site has a problem with text formatting, especially if using a tablet for reading.
- Members are from all over the world
- More than a thousand registered authors
- Hundred thousands of visits per month
The authors of the platform speak different languages, yet the majority of the stories are in English. You may find on Asstr not only a great porn content for your heart and body, but a lot of like-minded people ready to communicate - among the writers. Only the authors can be the registered members of asstr org; the readers can only enjoy the works without registration.
- Only authors can register
- The writers willing to join the site should apply for an author account
- There is a thorough check of the applications by moderators
- People can read stories without registration
As we have already said, the registration is available only for writers. The administration of the site has made everything for the talented authors to join their community and share the works with the world on their platform. If you do not want to create an account, you still can upload your works into ‘Incoming directory’.
- Communication only via email
- No possibility to make contact with a person without an account
- You can communicate with members for free
If an author does not have an account, you cannot contact him/her, unless the author has left any contacts within the works.
You can send messages only via emails that the writers leave on their profiles. If you do not see the link “Email” on a profile, you will not be able to contact a member. You cannot leave the comments either. How do the writers know which of their works are the most popular? The administration sends the members constant statistics on their publications.
- Unusual structure of profiles
- Only basic data in profiles, such as nickname and biography
- Contact authors via email
- The works are structured into directories
Profiles on asstr.org look different from the profiles on similar sites: they do not represent any photos or personal data unless a member wants to reveal some info about himself/herself. If you want to browse the profiles, you will see the list of them, one by one. A profile contains:
- The name of a user;
- The works;
- Information about the last update - it concerns any changes, the profile itself or the new uploads;
- Story categories. There are no official categories on the site, but authors use their own or general ones, just for convenience.
There is no official mobile application for asstr.org website, but you can access the site via your browser. Some of Asstr reviews say that it is a bit uncomfortable to read stories from tablet because of the font the administration has chosen. But, the owners of smartphones usually feel okay with the font. If you see that you cannot enjoy the content because of the font, please, contact the asstr.org team via the official email - you will find it on the end of the article.
The owners of the site describe the platform as free-to-use, and it is true. You can read sex stories, add your ones, and contact the writers for free. How is the platform still alive? The administration keeps the site clean from any ads, so nothing will distract you from reading. But the site gets the donations from grateful users and sometimes from the authors, and these donations support its life.
Appearance and interface
The design is pretty poor and non-inspiring. It may be explained by the two facts: the site is completely free, and it is dedicated to the text stories. The images will appear in your imagination, and nothing should prevent you from that exciting process. You do not need any pictures or colors: your brain will paint everything by itself. However, the site’s owners still do not want to change the main font that makes people struggle while reading, and it is a serious negative feature of design.
Our asstr.org review will be incomplete without noticing the detailed FAQ of this platform. It is incredible, as it is well-structured and answers literally all the questions a new user to the site may have, and even more. Basic grammatical concepts, articles on writing, sexual synonyms, and even the fine art of the real sex. This collection deserves the attention, even if you are a passer-by.
