Cocksure Men is a site created by Jake Cruise who, unlike on his own site, is not featured having a sexual role in any of the movies. His philosophy is that sex is fun, and he tries to make sure that the performers enjoy themselves at all times during a shoot; tied into this is Jake's attempts in providing a relaxed working environment. He tries to keep the direction of the scenes to a minimum resulting in a scene's natural feel. The site features a variety of men - some are muscular hunks, some college/athletic types ranging in age from early 20s to 40s. Basically the site showcases masculine men. Some of the men are known porn stars and adult performers, including Zeb Atlas, Leo Domenico, Topher DiMaggio and Phenix Saint. There are also some hot amateurs.
The episodes are filmed in a variety of different scenarios, which range from some raunchy aggressive fucking to some that are more romantic, with the guys being playful with one another during lovemaking. In many of the scenes the guys exhibit good chemistry with one another, almost like fuck buddies or lovers. Most of the action is gay hardcore, and aside from couple scenes there are some solo masturbation, blowjobs, group sex and barebacking. In some of the standout sessions are a few scenes of erotic massage which are worth checking out.
There are 491 videos offered, 178 more than there were a couple months over 2 years ago, so while there are no dates on the updates, that sounds pretty promising as it averages over 6 updates per month. The newer videos are offered for download in MP4 and M4V at 1280x720, and in WMV and QuickTime at 960x540. The videos are good quality and play smoothly. The older vids are all sized at 640x480 at good amateur quality, although there are no MP4s offered, despite the links that actually don't lead to vids. And for those who prefer to stream, there are streaming Flash vids offered in 2 quality options.
The images are located on the same pages as the videos associated with them. They are shot as good amateur to good quality digital stills, depending on the age of the set you're looking at, and are sized at 960x640 pixels. They are offered as both thumbnailed galleries and downloadable zip files. The photo sets comprise a combination of screen captures and photo session images of the couple in the scene. Not all the videos on the site have a photo gallery associated with it, e.g. some of the massage videos don't have downloadable photo sets.
Cocksure Men members also get access to Straight Guys for Gay Eyes, a site from the same studio that offers straight guys jerking off and nailing chicks, but the straight sex is shot to show off the guys rather than the girls. This site offers over 400 downloadable videos. Members also get links to 5 gay feeds including the feed version of Treasure Island, a hot barebacking feed and 3 Raging Stallion feeds. There's also a link to Cocksure Men Live, but in reality this is a third-party cam site. While there is free chat with cam guys, any full nudity or action will cost extra.
Does this site have any issues? I found a single pop-up on the tour with ads for other sites, but it was easily closed. Also according to the site terms, members give this company permission to send emails, although only from their own company - they specify that they do not ever sell email addresses. As already mentioned, there's no updates dates shown, so no way to know if updates are added on the same day (or days) each week.
Overall Cocksure Men is a hot site with mouthwatering men, lots of hardcore action and exclusive content. The performers include well-known porn stars and adult performers, and the guys look like they are enjoying themselves during each scene, a credit to how Jake Cruise likes to conduct his shoots - as relaxed as possible, without much direction so it leaves the guys open to take the scenes where they want to take them. All the videos are good quality and downloadable without DRM. Despite some slight drawbacks, Cocksure Men has enough to offer members and have them coming back for more.
