Black Stud Vids brings you a perfect mix of raw street thugs, handsome Latin jocks, blatino studs and sexy ebony guys. Some of the scenes here are interracial scenes, so you will find some white guys on the site, too. The guys are amateurs with well-defined bodies and many of them are packing some serious meat. The men here come in all shapes and sizes, from slender smooth twink boys to more beefy or muscular hunks in their twenties and early thirties. There is just one thing they all have in common; they all know how to use their delicious cocks.
There is a lot variety – the action includes jacking off, sucking and fucking, duos and threesomes, not to mention plenty of hot cum. If you like action-packed videos with big-dicked black guys and some lighter skinned hotties sucking each other off and pounding each other's asses, Black Stud Vids is probably able to satisfy your needs.
At the time of this review, there were 65 videos inside the members area, and since that's over 100 vids less than there were in 2010, I suspect that at some point the site had a reset. On average, Black Stud Vids updates once a month with one new scene, although last month there were 2 updates. Most of the scenes are taken from full-length DVDs and often it takes several months of updates before all the scenes from the same DVD have been added to the site. This site could use some growth and more frequent updates wouldn't hurt.
The videos here are available for download in three different MP4 sizes. The largest videos play at 640x480 and they are average to good amateur quality. The smaller videos are perfect to play on various mobile devices. The videos are not protected by DRM, which means you can keep and watch them forever. In case you'd rather stream the scenes in your browser, you can choose to play them through the online player. Again, there are three different sizes/qualities to choose from and all of them load very fast.
The navigation and search options are good, as you can easily search for videos inside Black Stud Vids and across the entire network. Videos can be sorted by popularity, length and age. On the page of the video, there is a little write-up about the action and the models, a link to the matching picture set and a button to add the video to your personal playlist. Members can also rate and comment on the videos, but it seems only a few members are using those options.
Each Black Stud Vids movie comes with a matching set of pictures, which are actually screencaps taken from the video. A set contains between 50 and 70 pictures, but I found a lot of them to be dark, blurry and unfocused. The hands-free slideshow enables you to sit back and enjoy the pictures plus there's a zip file for every set, which you can download to your own computer.
Black Stud Vids is one of the 29 sites that belong to the Massive Gay Pass network and a full membership to one of the sites, gets you access to all of the content inside the entire network. There are currently 2039 scenes and that number is growing fast, because the network gets updated at least once a day. This makes the free access to the network a valuable extra for members. One of the sites within the network is another all-black site, called Thug Vids and there are two more Latino sites, as well.
Issues here include a trial membership that will only give you limited access. In order to view all the content, trial members need to upgrade to a full membership. Also, beware of pre-checked offers on the join page. You should uncheck those if you don't want to make use of those additional offers. The last issue here is that Black Stud Vids could use some growth, which means that the site should update more often and more regularly.
Black Stud Vids offers hot and hung black and blatino studs in various ages, shapes and sizes engaged in hot gay sex and dick-stroking action. Some of the guys are amateurs, yet they certainly know how to use their juicy cocks. With 65 vids, the site is rather small and I wish their updates would be more frequent, however members do get free access to an entire gay porn network, which hosts enough content to keep you busy for a long time, although just one of the bonus sites is an all-black site. The bottom line - if you are into dark-skinned guys in solo and hardcore action, and don't mind the once per month updates, why not check out Black Stud Vids and see if you like it.
