Alpha Studs focuses on amateur hunks, jocks and bodybuilders from Europe. Physiques vary from ripped and athletic, with sixpack abs, to bulging and thick with muscle, a lot of the guys falling between the two extremes. Expect nice pecs and butts and models who obviously spend some time at the gym. There's a wide variety of looks from average to handsome, cute or imposing. I didn't feel that most of the guys on the site lived up to the "alpha" claim, as they didn't have that imposing, masculine look that makes both men and women look when they pass by. Most, however, are well-built and willing to show off their bodies and cocks on camera. Not surprising, since these are European men, a lot of them have uncut cocks.
You can expect a mix of guys flexing and posing, stripping and teasing, stroking their cocks, just a little bondage and a few duos getting it on. Something I liked is that some of the buffest men show off their firm asses, flexing them and giving us a great look at their huge, muscular thighs, as well - woof! Some of the solo guys stroked their bodies, their hands stopping over their nipples and sides before they finally got naked. The duos including cock sucking that's a lot more interesting then most of the blowjobs I see. There's fucking, mutual J/O, rimming and in 1 video, wrestling to submission. But again, keep in mind that most of the action here is solo.
Alpha Studs offers 20 DRM-free videos - 15 solos and 5 duos - and the site doesn't add new content. The videos are available in WMV and Quicktime formats at 720x576 (a couple were 640x480) plus 1 smaller size for each format. Quality is amateur to good amateur, and the sound is pretty good. The videography is definitely amateur work, as the guys aren't shot from angles that show off their muscles and lighting is sometimes better on the duo sessions than the solos.
Each video comes with a set of pics. These seem to be digital stills sized at 825x1100 or 1440x1080 at below amateur to amateur quality, partly due to lighting. Lighting for some sets is better than others, but most of the pics would show better detail with better lighting, and the pics don't show off the men as well as they could. The photos can be viewed as thumbnailed galleries, enjoyed as hands-free slideshows or downloaded in zip files. Each zip file has some pics sized at 225x300.
Does the site have any issues? Well, there's a pre-checked email offer on the join page, and as already mentioned, the site doesn't update. I was disappointed to note that although the content here is exclusive to the site, there's no info about the models, no profiles and no model pages. I would have also liked better quality pics, and in some cases, pics that were shot to show off the models' bodies and cocks.
Alpha Studs delivers the kind of hot European men they show on their tour - bodybuilders, hunks and jocks, although the tour hints that there's more of a focus on hardcore. What there is here is 20 exclusive videos showing athletic or muscular men flexing, stripping, posing and jerking off plus a few hardcore gay sex scenes. Unfortunately the site no longer updates, and I didn't see any extras or bonus videos, nor is there much personalization. Still, I'm a fan of amateur bodybuilders with uncut cocks, so I enjoyed the Alpha Studs men in action.
