GayDemon reviewed Dark Thunder on 1 Feb 2015
When Dark Thunder opened over two years ago, they had 14 videos; they've grown quite a bit since then, and they've got a good collection of gay ebony porn featuring horny black amateur studs and porn stars. The site has one of the nicest mixes of men I've seen with a full range of body types and, of course, lots of big cocks. We haven't been back since the site opened, so it's time to freshen up our review.
The guys on Dark Thunder are a mixture of men throughout their twenties and early thirties who range from slim to athletic or well-defined, as well as some who are very muscular with bodybuilder-perfect bodies. Most are smooth and clean shaven and a few have tattoos, but most don't. Short hair, long hair, braids, dreads, cornrows, and shaved heads, you'll find them all here along with do rags and baseball caps. And while there might be the odd thug type, Dark Thunder is mostly populated with average guys, jocks, athletic guys and muscle hunks who love dick.
Most of the action is black on black in duos, although there are 22 interracial videos with white and black dudes in both top and bottom roles. There are a handful of threeways or small groups and there's also a couple dozen solo jack off videos. And these guys are horny for cock with lots of kissing, sucking, rimming and, of course, drilling ass. All but a dozen of the videos feature the men fucking with condoms, so there's not much bareback action here. Most of the fucking happens indoors in home settings, hotels or gyms, but there are around 70 scenes filmed outdoors. I especially enjoyed watching hungry cocksuckers servicing some pretty big black cocks, being told how to do it and opening wide for some messy cumshots.
Dark Thunder currently offers 162 videos. These are still offered in downloadable WMV and streaming Flash. The newer downloadable videos are shown at 850x478 and the older ones at 640x480, but both are good amateur quality, although I'd say the newer ones have the quality edge. The streaming videos are offered in three or four speeds, but there's only one downloadable version. And one thing that will make some users happy is that the site no longer uses DRM protection, so whatever you save is yours to keep.
There are also 145 hardcore photo sets and 118 solo sets. These are well shot and good sized, ranging from 600x900 to 850x1280, depending on the age of the shoot. Most of the action galleries let the guys show off a bit before sharing blowjobs, eating ass and doing some serious fucking. There are enough medium and close-up shots to show the penetration and all the good stuff. The solo sets are smaller, the pics focusing on the guys in clothes and out, probably just before the actual porn shoots get started.
The episodes are dated and Dark Thunder adds two videos a month, but hasn't grown as much as might have been expected. The site's management company confirms that they haven't had any new scenes for a while and that the recent updates are recycled old scenes. As such, many "new" scenes will not play at 850x478 as I mentioned above, and that's because they aren't really new. There's also a pre-checked offer on the join page that will sign you up for another membership, so if you're not interested, simply deselect it.
Dark Thunder members also get access to a bonus site featuring another 367 videos and picture galleries (they mix them together, so I can't easily tell you exactly how many more videos you're getting). The site also used to have weekly live shows, but they don't any longer, although you still have access to the nearly 500 shows in the archive. Finally, members get access to 36 assorted gay feeds in all sorts of niches including frat boys, men in uniform, bondage, Euro hunks, and barebacking, to name a few, as well there are some giving you more sexy black men.
Dark Thunder offers horny black studs, hunks and amateurs in mostly hardcore action, and the site has made some positive changes; along with dropping DRM protection, they have lowered the price of their monthly and 3-month memberships. While the site doesn't seem to be adding much new content, they still have a healthy collection of videos and more on offer at the bonus site, so there's more than enough to keep you happy for the month of your membership. The videos could be bigger and higher quality, but they are a decent size and show off the action well, so you'll want to add many of them to your permanent collection.
