Dink Flamingo's Active Duty features hot all-American military guys from 18 to 25. They're fit with athletic to muscular bodies, sturdy cocks, and they're just oozing horniness. Most of the men are straight and experiencing their first sex with another guy. Once a week the site updates with a solo jack-off video (sometimes two guys side by side), and they follow up with a second update featuring two or more guys in suck and fuck action.
While billed as a military site, I didn't see a lot of military trappings. The site's design is militaristic with some army green and language like "The War Chest", but if you're expecting action in the barracks with guys in military gear, it's not happening here; at least, not in the newer episodes. What IS happening is a lot of hot guy-on-guy sex. I watched a fourway with three Active Duty alumni ushering a newbie into his first gay sex experience. It was fucking hot. I've always had trouble with the whole "straight guys" having sex with guys thing, i.e. if you're sucking cock, are you really straight? But as I watched these four guys talking and playing together, I realized that, for them, it's all about making their cocks feel good - it doesn't matter how they're doing it.
In this foursome, one guy was lying back on the bed cuddling with two others. A fourth guy slipped his cock through the crevice between his buddy's outstretched feet and fucked them for a good five minutes while everyone else kissed and sucked cock. The guy getting his feet fucked was getting off knowing that he was making his fuck buddy's cock feel good and the guy fucking was in heaven. Then they all started sucking dick and fucking - everyone topped and bottomed - and they all shot their loads one at a time with all of the guys giving the guy cumming their complete attention.
There are guys jerking off solo in their first on-camera experiences. If they're comfortable with that, they're asked back to go further, like Devin, a recent recruit who gave a smoking hot masturbation session, jacking through his underwear, rubbing his balls, then finally grabbing his cock in his fist and really going to town. But Dink wanted to bring Devlin back, convincing him to let another guy suck his dick. They chose Lance, who's also new to the whole "sex with a guy" thing, and Lance worked Devlin's rod, sucking and stroking till he blew his load.
Active Duty has grown to 1023 videos - 619 DVD scenes and 404 audition / solo videos. That's 71 more videos than there were on our last visit about a year ago. The site now shows update dates on all the episodes. There seem to be a few updates short, but rumor has it they've been recycling updates, and since a few of the recent updates are smaller than the rest, I'm guessing these are remastered older episodes added as updates.
The newest videos are offered in MP4 format in 7 sizes and 1 size of WMV. The largest MP4 shown at 1920x1080 and the smallest at 316x178, and the newest WMVs are sized at 720x400. As you go back a year or so, the MP4s are offered in 1 less size, the largest being 1280x720 (the WMVs are still the same size). And when you go way back, many are still sized at 1280x720 plus 5 smaller sizes while some others are smaller. The newest videos feature better production values than the older half of the library. While the newer videos are good amateur quality, I found the older videos lacked sharpness and were not as well lit, so Active Duty has definitely stepped up the quality over the past few years. And these days, most tablets and mobiles play MP4s, so several of the smallest sizes of video will play on most mobiles.
Each episode comes with a set of pictures. Many of the newer are digital stills, some galleries are a mix of digital photos and screencaps, and oldest galleries contain screencaps. The newer pics are sized at 1280x1920 at good amateur quality, and the oldest at 960x720; some of the newer updates are actually remastered, so expect smaller pics from them. You can view the photos online in thumbnail galleries, as hands-free slideshows, and you can download each set in a zip file.
Members also get access to a collection of bonus DVDs from a variety of studios. There were 68 at the time of this review, and they're in a wide variety of niches from twinks to muscle hunks, black studs to barebacking. While video quality could be higher, it's still a nice bonus for members.
There are some issues worth knowing about. First is the pre-checked offer that, if left checked, will sign you up for an additional site membership when you join this one. Next, trial members get limited access to the site's content. As mentioned, some of the updates - not all - aren't actually new to the site; they're being remastered and listed as updates. And when you join the site, you are automatically signed up for their email list. While you can't opt out when joining, you can cancel the emails after you've joined.
Dink Flamingo's Active Duty offers plenty of horny all-American military studs, mostly straight, in a mix of solo jerk-off sessions and hardcore gay sex including the guys giving or getting their first gay blowjobs or fucking another guy for the first time. With 1023 exclusive videos that can be downloaded, streamed or watched on most mobiles, not to mention picture sets and two weekly updates, this site will keep you busy for a long time. And then there are the bonus DVDs. While you won't see many of the guys in their uniforms, Active Duty has made some improvements; most importantly, the guys and the action are smoking hot, and they offer excellent value for your membership dollar.
