Bareback Flix features nothing but condom-free sex from 114 gay porn studios that offer a wide range of guys and action. With 1,727 DVDs featuring over 7,833 full scenes, it's hard to believe that you'd ever run out of anything to watch. The action on the site runs the gamut from your standard suck and fuck to guys swallowing gloryhole dick, fisting and rough sex, gangbangs, interracial sex, and lots of guys fucking in duos in bedrooms and living rooms. Using the site's categories section, it's pretty easy to find the kind of action you're looking for. For instance, the "Cum Crazy" category gives you 593 scenes of hungry cocksuckers getting their mouths or faces loaded with jizz while "Muscle Bottoms" offers 40 scenes of hunky muscle men taking it up the butt.
There is such a wide variety of men that I can't imagine you not finding the kinds of guys who turn you on; there are amateurs, college guys and jocks, daddies and hairy men, twinks, Europeans, black guys, Latinos, Asian guys, and so much more. The site has an extensive category section to help you really hone in on what you're looking for - blue collar, cowboys, doctors, leather men or rough sex, glory holes, bareback orgies, and blowjobs, and that's just for starters. In all there are 69 categories of guys and types of sex, but you can also search by studio and performer.
And speaking of performers, you'll not only find all kinds of men; there are plenty of porn stars. There's Trenton Ducati, Tony Capucci, Alessio Romero, Michael Lucas, Marcus Mojo, Adam Killian, Brian Brower, and lots more well-known performers.
The 1,727 DVD titles are from 114 different studios including Treasure Island Media, San Diego Boy, Hot Desert Knights, Raw Joxxx, Staxus, SX Video, and more. And by the way, this site has more than doubled the number of studios they had two years ago; I saw Bear Films, Lucas Entertainment, Bromo, Sean Cody, and Bareback Cum Pigs, which is a brand new producer, so the site seems pretty current. There were 7,833 scenes when I reviewed the site, but they add new scenes every week. The episodes aren't dated, so I can't tell you precisely how often or how many scenes are added in a week, but they've added 484 scenes from 153 DVDs in the past 23 months.
The videos are offered to stream in a Silverlight player, which you may have to download if you don't have it already. It's easy to install if you don't. The vids play in a pop-up window, which is really an enhanced player with all kinds of features and options, and the default size of the video is 640x334. But you can click the maximize button on the browser pop-up window and get a much large picture size like 1380x780 on one of the ones I watched. As well, there's a full-screen button on the player that will give you an even bigger viewing area if you have a large enough monitor. Not all the videos will play at 1380x780; some will be smaller like a couple I saw at 1040x780, and there may be other sizes as well.
An important warning about streaming these videos: the default playback bitrate is low and the picture quality is poor, but if you click "options" under the play bar, you're able to adjust the bitrates up to 768k or better. I found some of the older productions or videos from smaller studios weren't as sharp and clear as I would like, while others were quite enjoyable, although the results will vary if enlarged to full screen.
I think Bareback Flix could have done a better job explaining this. I had to poke around to find it, so don't be afraid to explore and click. There are other features under "options" like how much time is left on the video or how much time is left in your viewing package, as well as the bitrate of the movie, the maximum bandwidth available and the average bandwidth you're currently getting from your ISP. There's also a fast-forward mode that I think has been added since our last review that allows you to watch the video at two or five times the normal speed, or you can slow it down to half the normal speed so you can check out the cumshots in slow motion.
There are no picture galleries, but each video has a filmstrip feature under the playback area and that contains small thumbs of key points in the action so you can jump ahead. The extended player window also shows all the scenes you've recently watched along the side in case you want to take another look at them. And each DVD also offers you selections of other scenes that viewers have watched.
Once I figured out the playback issue and that I had total control over the picture quality, I didn't have a huge number of issues with Bareback Flix. It is a streaming site, so those who prefer to download videos and video collectors may be disappointed, but I prefer streaming videos so I was pretty happy. There is a way to favorite scenes so that you can find the ones you liked later.
One thing I didn't like at all is that unlike most membership sites, members here get a limited amount of time they can watch the videos per month, and memberships that offer more minutes per month cost more. There are currently three options that give you up to 200, 500, or 1000 minutes of viewing per month. And unlike most pay-per-minute sites, you get "up to" a certain amount of minutes per month, so unused minutes do not roll over. When first creating your account, there's a pre-checked email offer for the weekly newsletter. but it's easy to untick if you're not interested.
Bareback Flix has two major strengths: Their huge catalog of DVDs and the myriad ways they help you find exactly the kinds of guys and sex you're looking for. With 7,833 scenes from 1,727 DVDs, there's so much here to see. The site has a lot of useful and cool features to enhance your viewing experience, but I think they could do a better job of explaining some of it, like how to adjust playback quality. Still, once I got the hang of it, I was raring to get watching the wide variety of raw gay porn they have here on Bareback Flix.
