||- Main odels are hot but need more variety - mainly white, American, clean-cut with good bodies.
- Same models in several scenes
- Not a massive archive of footage yet
- Sometimes I miss the more raw amateur feel
- Many "straight" models don't even come near to being convincing, some poor acting.
- Live cams cost extra
- No access to other network sites
- Some imagination in scenarios but can get a little samey.
||Basic idea - one hot guy is "forced" to be naked in front of groups of guys, tied up, humiliated and made to serve.
I love the way the site sticks to the basic idea of all the guys focusing on the one guy relentlessly instead of pairing off with each other. Also good - the main model is usually classically hot, but some more ordinary guys get to use them too! They show some imagination in the scenarios and there's a good amount of outdoor action in some pretty public places!
They have a few recurring themes - one is the "gay mafia" where a queeny model is harassed by a "straight" guy who is then stripped and humiliated by a bunch of toughs from the gay mafia. Sounds my ultimate fantasy but sadly the "straight" guy is sometimes swishier/camper than the gay guy he's supposedly abusing, and the fantasy is totally cut out when you see the before and after videos in which the "straight" guy couldn't make it clearer he's really gay!
Many have commented that the interviews ruin the fantasy. I think they are there for legal reasons, but other sites have done it and made it hot - the models agree they did it of their own free will, but keep up the act - reluctant and ashamed, admitting they only did it for money. Not here - the guys grin all over their happy gay little faces! They should have the interviews as seperate scenes so you could have choice, but they're still covered legally.
The standard price is $29.95, which is reasonable, but sign up for their mailing list and it's often "on sale" at $19.95 for a month.
The video quality is awesome - beautifully shot & crystal clear. The downloads offer a choice of MP4 or WVM in 1280x720 resolution (lower res is also available) and the in-browser flash works flawlessly. Great customer service, feedback is encouraged - a class act.
For all this technical brilliance, I didn't renew. They've got the production values, hot models and slick camerawork - but they've forgotten that kink is supposed to be sleazy and naughty - no matter how hardcore the action, it somehow feels unreal, a little sanitized. I enjoyed it and would join again now and then, but somehow they need they keep the quality but regain a little sleaziness!
Combine the technical brilliance and service of this American site with the raw sleaze of a British one, you'd get perfection! This site gets right what the British ones don't, but sadly the reverse is also true.
