Butch Dixon launched five years ago and they serve up some of the hottest hairy men and muscle bears you'll find anywhere. The models here are sexy, masculine men, mostly European and the odd America performer who flies over to film with them. It's been a couple of years since our last review of the site, and they recent did an overhaul in their design and content management system, so I'm eager to get a fresh look inside.
Butch Dixon men are masculine, usually hairy, and range from their mid-twenties to forties. You'll find lots of facial hair, quite a few tattoos and furry bodies, well-built men who work out including a few who have reached bodybuilder status. Most of the men are gay porn performers like Harley Everett, Issac Jones, Carlo Cox, Fabio Stallone, and Samuel Colt, but Butch Dixon regularly introduces us to newcomers who are just breaking into the business or simply fulfilling a fantasy of making a gay porn video.
Butch Dixon films mainly in the U.K., although they have recently started filming in Florida, as well, so most of the men are Europeans, mainly British, but with a healthy representation of French, Spanish, and Italian men. So foreskin lovers will have a good time seeing all those uncut cocks. As well, you'll find quite a few American porn performers who have made their way to Europe and stopped by to film some hot sessions.
Of the latest 12 releases, 5 of them are solo jack-off videos that usually include a bit of an interview so we get to know the guys a little better. I really enjoy these chats, especially since a lot of these solos feature men I haven't seen before, and I like learning a bit more about who they are and what turns them on. The remaining 7 releases are duo action featuring guys kissing, sucking, rimming and fucking. The site's producer, Jonno, often creates a brief storyline to get us into the action. The latest video has a French hunk getting a massage from a sexy and very hairy Scottish man that has a very flip-flopping happy end; another video sees a sex toy store owner catch a customer trying to steal a dildo, so this Italian hunk aggressive fucks the thief's ass; and another sees an office worker bent over his desk when he accidentally texts his boss a picture of his ass. So nothing complicated, just a bit of fun to get us into the main event.
There are regular threesomes, as well sometimes the guys are playing with various sex toys. And every year around Butch Dixon's birthday, the site usually releases a bukkake video where 4 to 6 studs get their dicks serviced by a hungry cocksucker and unload all over his face and chest.
Butch Dixon recently finished an overhaul of their site and the new design makes the site very easy to use. There are 233 videos offered in streaming MP4 format in three sizes of video to suit your bandwidth connection: 960x540, 900x500, and 640x330. With the new design, Butch Dixon eliminated downloadable videos; they also retired the WMV and Real Player formats. The HD videos are well lit and good quality; they play smoothly, and even in full screen mode, they look pretty decent. Older videos are smaller playing at 720x540 and they hold up pretty well in full-screen mode, too. One thing that I'm happy about is Butch Dixon now has full streaming servers, so it's possible to jump back and forth in the scene without buffering issues.
The site used to offer some bonus stock video content that wasn't filmed by Butch Dixon and 4 third-party video plugins, but they have also been eliminated. Instead Butch Dixon members get limited access to 4 sites within the same network: Alpha Males, Breed Me Raw, UK Naked Men, and World of Men. The bonus access isn't giving you run of the house of these four sites, but you're getting 12 full videos from each site, so that's 48 bonus videos in total.
Butch Dixon offers 635 photo galleries -- 494 solo and 141 action -- featuring large, good quality, digital stills shown at 683x1024. These are good-sized galleries featuring 50 to over 200 pics per set. You can browse the pics in the galleries or enjoy them as a hands-free slideshow. And when you find a set you like, you can download the entire thing as a zip file. More good news for pic lovers is that the site usually updates weekly with two or three new photo sets, often previewing the men who have videos in the next month's line-up.
While the site is great to use, one thing to be aware of is that there's a pre-checked email offer on the join page.
The changes in design the way everything functions has made Butch Dixon a more user-friendly site. It's easier to navigate and the enlarged preview thumbnails give you a better sense of the guys and the action. During the first few years Butch Dixon suffered from updating issues with videos often being several days late, but they have been consistently updating the site every Monday for quite a while now. In short, Butch Dixon has matured into a good solid site that's worth spending time visiting. The site has doubled in size since our last review, offering 233 videos, and they've tripled the number of photo galleries. But most of all, Butch Dixon offers lots of sexy hairy, masculine men and heaps of uncut cock for foreskin lovers.
