Remember Juicy Boys? Well, it's got a new name these days - Bromo - and of course the focus is still on barebacking. The first thing I noticed about this site is the performers, which are a mix of sexy, well-built studs, and smooth slender guys, some of whom are twinks. You'll find dark-haired, bearded Marcus Ruhl, these days muscular with a masculine physique; there's also cock hound cutie Johnnny Rapid, who loves taking it raw; Dennis West is also in the mix, now a bearded hunk who got his start on Sean Cody. You'll also find Vadim Black, Jake Wilder, and impressively hung Lucas Knight. You'll find some guys with tattoos, some with six-pack abs and a couple with lightly furry chests.
The action in the exclusive videos is all raw, without a condom in sight. The men here get it on in a variety of locations including the living room, the bedroom, a garage, a cabin, and on a piece of fitness equipment. The performers aren't amateurs, so they're not shy on camera - there are some hot and slurpy cock sucking sessions, the anal action is sometimes rough, the guys topping know how to fuck, and you'll find the bottoms really know how to take a big dick deep in their hungry holes. There's a threesome, a fourway, and a series called "I Bred My New StepDad," always a horny fantasy.
That's the men and action from the exclusive scenes, but there's more - a lot more. The site offers over 10,000 videos in total, most of which are non-exclusive, and there's a wide variety of studios. You'll find content from Pacific Sun Entertainment, Jake Cruise Media, Bacchus, Stud Mall, and Hot Desert Knights, and that's just to name a few. And then there's every kind of guy you can imagine.
Bromo offers 10,615 videos, and these are divided into sections. There are SD videos (7,621 SD scenes with nine vids added in the last week), HD videos (2,945 scenes with five vids added in the last week) and Gayflix (49 non-explicit movies, and this section hasn't updated), which are all included with your membership. The first two categories are self-explanatory. In the Gayflix section, you will find mainstream gay-themed movies, which can only be viewed by North Americans. There's also one more category called VOD (offering 819 DVD titles), but the VOD section isn't included with your membership. The videos require members to pay to watch; then the scene will be unlocked forever and stored in your account, but these scenes cannot be downloaded to your computer.
There are 15 exclusive videos listed in their own section, and they are also listed in the HD Scenes section. Let's talk about these first, as they're only available to stream in a player sized at 964x546. They're offered in three qualities, the best of which looks pretty good. These videos are not offered for download, but they do have a couple neat features - cinema mode turns everything but the video (and nav links) black, making it easier to focus on the video, and if you click FilmStrip, a digital timeline will pop up, making it easy to navigate to the parts of any video that interests you.
Most of the SD and HD scenes can be downloaded, streamed or viewed on most mobiles. The SD scenes can be downloaded in two MP4 sizes, the largest sized at 640x480 or 640x360. There is a WMV file for most videos which comes at the same size, and a smaller MP4 for mobiles with smaller screens. The HD scenes are also available in three MP4 sizes, but the largest one is available at a size of 854x480 (not actually HD) or 1280x720. There's also a couple smaller sizes for mobiles and a WMV. Streaming videos are also offered in MP4 format, and play at a size of 640x480 (SD) or 960x540 (HD). The video player can be enlarged to full screen, but it is not recommended for all the SD videos as some lose too much sharpness and clarity.
The quality of the videos obviously varies, because the source material is different ages and has been produced by different studios with various equipment from homemade amateur to high-end professional cameras. Also some of the videos are from years ago and these are obviously going to be lower in quality. Overall I think the visuals are decent, and sometimes they're good quality.
While there is a huge library of content you can watch with your regular membership, many of the higher end videos and studios including Lucas Entertainment, Naked Sword, Colt Studio Group, Rascal Video, Men.com, and a number of others are VOD titles not included with membership. That means they require additional payment in the form of credits. Also some of the most popular porn stars including Adam Killian and Rafael Alencar only have videos listed in the VOD section. What's especially frustrating about this is that when you browse by category, studio, or use the PORNSTARS section (which is the model index), the VOD titles are mixed in with those included for members, and there's no way to search for videos included with membership only.
Let's take a look at some of the other downsides. There's a pre-selected offer on the billing page on a dropdown menu, and there are two additional selections - you must choose "No thanks" if you're not interested in being subscribed to a second site when you join this one. Next, when you join you are automatically signed up for the email list, and there's no way to opt out at the time you join. While the site's terms page is long and detailed, it doesn't include information regarding whether trial memberships give only limited access, but I'm 99% sure that the trials are limited. And keep in mind that if you choose to pay for a VOD title, you won't be able to download it; the VOD movies are streaming-only, as are the exclusive titles.
One last thing worth mentioning is something I wasn't able to confirm. A couple of GayDemon readers report that they got trial memberships, and when they logged into the site, there was a pre-checked box upgrading them to full memberships that they didn't spot, which means they were upgraded unknowingly.
Bromo offers a huge collection of gay porn in numerous categories from many studios including their own, which is exclusive bareback content. Altogether membership includes access to 10,615 videos (15 of which are exclusive), including the HD and SD videos and the Gayflix section; updates are frequent. Most of the videos can be downloaded, streamed, and viewed on your mobiles, but some of the videos - including the exclusive titles - are streaming only. The listings in the VOD category - where you'll find the premium titles - aren't included with your membership, a definite disappointment; they're also streaming only if you fork over some credits to watch them. Still, whether you are into twinks, studs, daddies or bears, sucking and fucking, solo strokers, or piggy fetishes, chances are you'll find some at Bromo.
