Gay HD is a DVD library with thousands of scenes and masses of variety. It doesn't matter what kind of guys you like to get off with, the chances are that Gay HD has them covered. Amateur guys doing anal; barebacking bears; lush Latino twinks; big-dicked black bi-sex boys; rough, stocky, skaters and punks; or straight uniformed hunks swallowing cock outdoors; there is going to be someone for everyone. And this means there's a nice mix of ethnicities, build types from muscled and slim, cut and uncut cock, smooth and hairy men, and guys aged mainly between 18 and 40. It is one big bubbling melting pot of amateurs, first-timers, and professional porn stars.
The action is pretty varied as well. The scenes cover all kinds of hot stuff from the simple and straightforward cock-sucking office workers to muscled guys in complicated orgy scenes. There are European twinks together out in the woods, in the classroom, and poolside. And you'll also find older studs and jocks hot from the playing field in locker room sex, there are some bisexual scenes, gloryhole action, threesomes, cowboy fantasies, uniform action, Brit boys in hoodies, scally lads and guys with tattoos. There is also fetish action, with some foot worship, watersports, BDSM, and cum-swallowing scenes. The site actually lists 45 different categories.
Not only are the guys and the action diverse but so are the studios that produce the DVDs. There are some big names with content here: Lucas Entertainment, Pacific Sun, and Euro Boy, for example, and then some smaller American and European studios including the British RentBoy. Some studios have only one DVD on show, others have over 400. I think it's fair to say that variety is the name of the game at Gay HD.
You might expect that a site with HD in the title would deliver mostly or all HD content. Out of the 5185 scenes on show from 1069 DVD titles, 2790 of them were presented in HD. In some cases the HD was at 1920x1080 and in many other cases it was shown at 1280x720 in both streaming and downloadable MP4 format; each vid is available in smaller sizes as well, which are good for mobile users. Some download files are over a gigabyte in size. The non-HD videos are available at 720x540 plus a couple of smaller sizes. BTW, while you can browse DVD titles, the DVDs aren't available as full DVDs but rather you can download or view each scene separately.
Movies can be streamed at 540p by default, and the HD videos mostly look good and go full screen with no problem. The non-HD videos are often average quality or a little better, so they will lose some quality when enlarged. There's a "jump forward" feature to use. There is no DRM in use and downloading was not a problem.
The site is currently adding 2 multi-scene DVD titles every day, which is very nice. Ten months ago there were only 1027 scenes, and now there are over 5100 so that looks like a pretty good update schedule to me.
There are no galleries at Gay HD, as it's all about the DVDs, but there are good sample shots for each scene on the index pages. These don't enlarge - when clicked they lead to the scene's viewing pages - but they give you a good idea of the action. You will also find some screenshots with each scenes, around 30, and these open up in a box of thumbnails but these don't enlarge either. When you click one you jump to that part of the scene.
The site has some nifty functions that enhance your experience. You've got the standard "add to favorites" buttons for scenes, DVDs, and performers so you can make up your own lists, and there's also a Playlist function where you can add your best scenes into a collection that you name, so all your favorite BDSM ones can go in one place and the hottest group sex scenes in another and so on. You can "dim the lights" and turn down the brightness of the pages while streaming, there are ways to change your default stream speed, you are also able to rate scenes and leave comments. Navigation is easy, there are drop-down lists so you can rearrange and filter the content and there's an advanced search function.
On the downside, there's a pre-checked offer on the sign-up page to watch out for, and the prices are a little on the high for a non-exclusive DVD site. I didn't see any images with the model index; there's no face or body shots so you can't really use it as a browse tool.
As DVD sites go, Gay HD isn't bad at all. From twinks to daddies, solo stroking to group sex, and amateurs to BDSM, there's lots of variety. The site adds a couple DVDs every day, so your value for money increases the longer you stay a member. The quality is decent, about 53% of the videos are HD: some are 1080p, others are 720p high definition movies; the rest of the site's content isn't HD but there's still plenty of it. You can stream and download, vids will play on most mobiles, and there are good interactive functions. There are some unusual and little-known studios with DVDs here, so the chances are there's going to be a lot that's new to you. Gay HD is like a kind of candy store where there's so much on offer you don't know what you want to try first, but you know you're going to happily over-indulge.
