Dark Alley XT originally opened as Dark Room and we reviewed it back in September 2014, but after a change in directors, the site was renamed and redesigned in May 2015. The original site had a heavy emphasis on fisting and extreme ass play, and while it still contains those kinds of scenes, newer ones are featuring a lot more rough fucking and barebacking. So let's have a look at the new Dark Alley XT and see what's happening.
There are now two sites with the Dark Alley name. The first and original produces its content in New York City while Dark Alley XT films in Europe. However, you'll have to keep in mind that the site has changed directors, so earlier scenes used American men. What's consistent though is the type of men: sexy, masculine hunks with nicely-defined or well-muscled bodies. The men appear to be in their mid-twenties to early thirties and you'll find plenty of leather men, punks, and even a few skinheads. Some have body hair, others are smooth and they're a mix of tattooed and not. I was thrilled to see a lot of my favorite European hunks here, and lots of them hail from Spain like real-life lovers Antonio Miracle and Mario Domenech (they split up after this review was written), Max Toro, Martin Mazza, Letterio Amadeo, Max Duran, and sexy bald newcomer Viktor Rom. There are others like Logan Moore, Joe Gunn, and Geoff Paine, and plenty of men I haven't seen before. And you can expect them to be wearing a variety of gear like jockstraps, denim, leather gear, and of course nothing at all.
A little less than half of the videos fall under the category of "extreme penetration," so you can expect lots of fisting (even the odd foot fucking) and dildo play. But the newest videos produced under the new director are less about handballing and feature more rough fucking, barebacking, and cum eating. Of the latest 20 new releases, five offer fisting action while the rest feature dirty pigs sucking, fucking, and guzzling cum.
There are only a handful of threeways and orgies (I counted four of each), so the rest of the videos are one-on-one sessions with aggressive tops using their bottom's mouths and asses however they want, and it's usually hard and rough. And these sessions can get pretty dirty with lots of verbal abuse, dirty talk, spitting, and manhandling. The action is filmed in playrooms, a few dungeons, and some home-like or hotel settings.
Dark Alley XT is not a pay-per-minute site like its original version; instead it's a full membership site giving you unlimited streaming. There are 191 videos offered in MP4 format, and these stream at 770x428 at four different speeds, and each progression improves the picture quality but does not increase the player's screen size. These are good amateur productions and they fare well at full-screen mode. The videos played with no stopping and starting and I had no problems jumping ahead in a scene. There are no downloads here, nor are there picture galleries, although each episode has eight to ten small pictures on the page that lets you preview the action.
Are there any deal breakers? No, not really. I'm not a video collector, so the lack of downloads didn't bother me, and their servers are robust so the streaming video plays very well. But those who prefer to download may be disappointed. You'll want to check the default speed before you begin watching because it's often one of the lower speeds, and the higher speeds give better quality. The videos aren't 100% exclusive as I have seen one of these videos on another site. The site mostly updates once a week, but once a month it's every ten days.
I like the new direction Dark Alley XT is taking. I love European men, and Spaniards are among my favorites, so I'm quite turned on by the latest offerings. Although the site is producing less handballing than they did before, fisting hasn't been completely obliterated either. What's important is that the sex is still rough and dirty with lots of sweaty bareback fucking, dirty talk, manhandling, and I enjoyed seeing these aggressive tops unloading on butt holes or down cum-hungry throats. Dark Alley XT has grown nicely adding 35 new videos since our review last September. If you like your sex on the piggy side, you should be happy with the offering here.
