Blake Mason opened in 2005 and a year later was winning awards. Billing themselves as offering "amateur British men in action", the site's well known for featuring sexy and horny college-aged guys. Many are first-timers to filming porn, some are repeaters returning for several appearances and a few are straight, open minded or exploring; most of these Brits cocks are uncut. We thought it was time to take a fresh look at Blake Mason and see what's new, because this site just keeps on growing.
While lots of sites feature well-known porn performers, one of Blake Mason's draws is their amateur guys. You'll find plenty of fresh faces here, guys who are making their first appearances in adult videos. Ranging from 18 to 30, there's a variety of body types from slender to athletic, well-defined to fairly muscular. While some have well-built physiques, you generally won't find guys who look like they spend their entire days in a gym. The site features a mix of smooth and hairy guys, and the odd guy will have some face scruff, although very few have full beards and mustaches. And these are mostly British guys with the odd other European, so you'll find lots of uncut cocks, but during some site changes there were more U.S. performers and the filming changed as the site changed to a new videographer.
While many of the performers are first-time amateurs, some come back to Blake Mason again and again, some shooting with them as many as 20 times or more (Kai has 39 videos and has appeared on other sites). So at what point do you stop calling a guy an amateur? And while loads of Blake Mason's guys are fresh faces and totally new to the site, you will find some of the performers doing the rounds on other British gay porn sites. A few, like the massively hung Matt Hughes, have gone on to become porn stars.
Most of the action on Blake Mason is filmed in bedrooms and living rooms, but they have a multi-part series called Mating Season that took guys outdoors on a camping trip, and another series was filmed inside a bath house. Once a week the site adds a new scene, usually hardcore but sometimes a solo. The guy-on-guy sex scenes are usually duos, but there are a few threeways and groups. The performers get into horny suck and fuck sessions with lots of kissing, oral sex, face fucking, rimming, butt fucking and they end by shooting their juicy loads wherever they fly - on bellies or asses, splattering through the air and splashing across faces and hungry lips. Each episode has helpful category tags, like flip flop, doggy style, 69, rimming, foreskin play, etc., to help you find more of what you like.
There are now 1,157 exclusive, DRM-free videos inside Blake Mason. The downloadable versions are offered in from two and four different sizes of MP4 depending on the age of the vids. The largest newer videos are sized at 1920x1080 at good quality plus three smaller sizes and the oldest at 640x480 plus one smaller size at good amateur quality. You can also stream the videos, usually in two to four different sizes depending, again, on the vid's age. I found the smallest version (640x360) was a decent size, but there were from one to three additional resolutions and the highest looks good at full screen. And the videos will play on a variety of cell phones, tablets and other handheld devices. All the movies are well lit with good sound.
Each episode comes with a picture set. The newer episodes are good to very good quality quality digital stills sized at 667x1000, although some of the very newest could use just a tad better lighting. The older episodes come with screencaps sized at 520x400 at good quality to 1000x731 at average quality, depending on the age of the set you're checking out. You can view the pictures in galleries or navigate from picture to picture using the arrow button that will appear when you mouse over the left or right size of each pic, and you can download the photos in zip files or save pics individually if you prefer.
Members get access to some extras. There are 476 bonus videos, most from a site called Beddable Boys that updates every week and offers downloadable and streaming videos. Some of the older bonus vids are from another site. There's also the Blake Mason forum which hasn't been very busy lately but is worth checking out. And last, members get access to the picture sets from two additional gay porn networks, but if you want to watch the videos you have to join those networks.
The site's biggest change is the change in update schedule. Updates are now added once a week after years of adding two updates weekly. Still, weekly updates aren't a bad thing, especially when you add in the bonus site's weekly updates, but I'll miss that second update.
There are some issues worth mentioning. There's a pre-checked offer on the billing page that, if left checked, will sign you up for a second site's recurring membership when you join this one. There is a large ad with a video player at the top of every page in the member area, as well as an animated group of thumbs at the bottom of every page that are live cam ads, and ads have been added to the left side of the page. Also the After Hours videos are listed both in their own section and in the main video section, which can be confusing.
Blake Mason is the kind of site members really enjoy. The hot guys are definitely the first thing to catch your eye, and the 1,157 videos are a big plus. I must say that Blake Mason does a really good job of helping members find what they want. Every scene links the models to their other appearances and those category tags can be quite helpful, but you can also do free-form searches or tick pre-selected categories to find more of what you want. With regular weekly updates along with mobile compatible videos and over 400 bonus vids, not to mention all those uncut cocks, there's so much at Blake Mason to keep members very, very happy.
