A movie review today was posted on Adult FYI reviewing Jessica Drake’s official website. Apparently it didn’t get such a good review. In fact, I think it got one of their lowest reviews to date. [source]
Sean from AdultFYI and Adult Cyber Mart writes: Jessica Drake is a multi-award winning superstar and member of several industry related halls of fame. She also has an exclusive contract with Wicked Pictures and she is a hot looking blonde which in my book supersedes all of her other accomplishments. That being said, her official website, JessicaDrake.com, doesn’t come close to equaling her industry status.
The site is designed well and is easy to navigate. It also meets the industry standard by offering movie clips and pictures.
Taking the site tour I was a little confused with the description of the videos. It’s advertised that the site has scenes from all her latest Wicked movies. Great, but then further down the page I see a ‘View Movie Now!’ icon. So what is it, do members see the whole movie or just her scenes? Your guess is as good as mine.
Her biography and list of industry awards appear to have not been updated since 2008. The last award mentioned was a Best All-Girl Sex Scene won in 2007. I went to Wikipedia and discovered that since then she has won the following awards: 2009 AVN Award – Best Actress, 2009 AVN Award – Best Double Penetration Sex Scene, 2009 XRCO Award – Single Performance, Actress, 2010 AVN Hall of Fame inductee, 2010 AVN Award – Best Group Sex Scene, 2011 XRCO Hall of Fame inductee.
Her site also has a blog and appearance page as well. Both haven’t been updated since April 10, 2011.
This site, somebody’s attitude, or both, need a complete overhaul. A site cannot survive on name recognition alone. Her name may get fans to visit the site, but fresh content and updates keeps the fans coming back. Even the best restaurants change up their menu occasionally.
Membership to her site is $29.95.

Sean’s Grade for www.JessicaDrake.com : D+
On a side note, the site seems to be run by the now defunct Adult Star Profits that from what I heard they took off with all the money owed to the girls and let them hanging. But my question is, if that is true, then why keep the site up at all? Clearly someone is running things. NATs cost at the very least $150 a month. So somebody is paying that bill, not to mention the monthly web hosting fees and the domain name registration fees. So if you are allowing new joins and not updating the site then perhaps this D+ was well deserved. Her fans deserve better, especially if she is going to milk them for $30 a month.
