Darkroom focuses on masculine men, kink and pig sex. You'll find a mix of leather men, amateurs, adult industry semi-pros and gay porn stars including Jessie Balboa, Matthias von Fistenberg, Dominik Rider and Adam Faust. Expect a mix of hunks, men with shaved heads, guys with tattoos, models with facial hair, some with ass-stretching big cocks, plus a fair number of men over 30. Expect plenty of aggressive tops who know just what to do to satisfy submissive, hungry bottoms. The models here are perfect for the kink, perversion and extreme hardcore the site has to offer, and are no newcomers to the dungeon. And some have
The site is well-named, as the sessions take place in dungeons or dark locations that set the mood for the action to follow. And we are talking real piggy sex, BDSM and more. You'll find plenty of fisting - over the wrist fisting featuring handballers with big hands and arms. There's at least a couple double-fisting scenes as well, and the bottom boys sure can take it! And this is one place you'll find lots of rimming from guys who love sticking their tongues deep into hot assholes. Expect men in bondage, being told what to do, a few interracial and piss sex scenes, guy sucking dick, in slings getting fisted and fucked hard and deep.
Darkroom is a brand new site that currently offers 44 videos, and the 3 most recent updates as the site launched have been added exactly one week apart. The videos are streaming MP4 offered in several bitrates at a single size - around 772x426 - and at the best claimed bitrate, they look good. You can let the site "decide" what bitrate is best for your internet connection, but if you want to enlarge the videos to full screen, the highest bitrate is the way to go. The second highest still looks pretty good at full screen, but the motion isn't as natural. While no DRM is used, the videos are not offered for download. BTW, each video has several good-sized, non-clickable screencaps under the movie player so you can preview the action before watching a video.
While the site doesn't offer any extras, it does have some handy features. First off, you can not only browse a list of categories or men - there's a search box that gives good results. I also like the timeline under the video player that allows viewers to skip to any part of the video they like easily. And being given the choice to select your video bitrate or let the site do so for you means members can have the amount of control they want over the content quality.
Now let's explore issues. First off, I was disappointed that the videos aren't available for download. Second, there are some important categories missing from the category page. The site offers barebacking, men over 30 and a good amount of group action, yet none are listed - you have to browse to figure out which videos offer these. And last, I was hoping for model profiles if not a full-on section with profiles and solo photo sets, but the model pages only show the videos the men appear in. Honestly, though, I wouldn't consider these deal breakers unless you generally join sites to download the videos for future viewing.
Darkroom delivers down-and-dirty gay sex, including lots of ass eating, plus plenty of kink from fisting and pissing to bondage and dungeon action. The site is off to a good start with 44 exclusive full scenes, and while the videos aren't downloadable, they are DRM-free. Member area navigation is simple and intuitive, and the search box works well. The bottom line - if you're a fan of fisting, rough or kinky sex and gay fetish content, and don't mind streaming videos, Darkroom is definitely worth checking out.
