The Dick Show tour shows plenty of horny guys, mostly below 30, stroking their cocks, plus a few 2-guy sessions. You can preview many of the guys including juicy descriptions and sample videos. There are all sorts of men here, from average Joes to well-built hotties, some eager to show their dicks on video and some shy. The site offers weekly updates, exclusive content, and says members can "Download every full length video to your hard drive!" Sound good? Then join me for a look at the member area!
The first thing members are met with when they log into Dick Show is the next up and coming update, followed by the latest update and more recent additions. Each is listed with thumb, synopsis and the date the update was added to the site. At the top and bottom of the page you will find the Video Archive and a link to all the videos. There are a couple feeds listed to the right of the newer updates and at the bottom of the page we get to hear a little from the photographer as he tells us which are his favorite videos. The site offers 329 updates, and a new video is added regularly every Thursday.
The newer videos are offered in streaming Flash, and are shown at about 480x360. They look fairly good and play smoothly, but are not offered in additional sizes or formats. Some of the older videos are downloadable, some are streaming only and most are shown at 320x240 in Quicktime format, with bitrates between 340k and 450k. These older vids are generally offered as both full scenes and clips, where the newer ones are full scenes only. Quality varies with the older videos, but most are between amateur and good amateur quality, and all are DRM-free.
The Dick Show videos surprised me. The thumbs didn't lead me to feel the videos would have much personality, but actually they have a distinct feel to them as well as a great variety of horny guys. Many include the model talking with the photographer where some have guys who simply whip out their cocks and get into action. There are some guys with great big dicks, some with average dicks, and the photographer is obviously really into the guys and the action. Lighting is fairly good amateur work improving as the videos get newer.
For those who want more, Dick Show Members get access to an ezine and a feed - Dick! Mag and NYC Boys. These don't offer videos, and the pics aren't huge but there are some cuties to be found here and both of these feeds say they update regularly. While there are live feeds listed, they require payment in order to see full nudity or action.
The site has a couple of issues. First, while the tour says all the videos are downloadable, none of the newer - better quality - videos can be saved. Also, when you get to the join page each membership option is listed without the cost of rebills being disclosed. Then there are some quibbles. When you go to the video archive, all the episodes aren't listed. You must go to the main page and click "Click Here To See All The Guys" at the bottom of the update list to see all the guys. While some sites are moving away from streaming videos to add downloadable videos, Dick Show has gone in the opposite direction, so that all the recent updates are streaming only.
Dick Show has grown to 329 updates thanks to regular weekly updates. The videos are exclusive, the guys are mostly amateur and hot, and several months of updates are dated so it's easy to tell update frequency. Navigation is a little clunky when you get past the last year or so of videos, but still not difficult to use. One thing that did disappoint me is that only the older updates are available for download - the new ones are streaming only. Still, if you love watching horny amateurs, jocks and twinks jerking off, and aren't looking for large downloadable videos, Dick Show is worth checking out.
