Hairy and Raw is the dirtier younger brother of Bear Films, having opened in 2011. The site is going strong, still featuring weekly updates with sexy furry men, gay bears and chubs sucking and fucking in raw sessions. We reviewed the site just a year ago, but it's grown, and there's been a redesign along with a couple of other changes, so let's get caught up.
Walk into your local bear bar and you'll find a mix of muscle bears, daddies, big-bellied hairy men, and probably some cute cubs and horny otters, and that's the best way I can describe the men of Hairy and Raw. The performers range from their early twenties to older men in their forties or fifties. The men aren't always hairy, but many are, and there are also lots of beards and other face scruff and they come in all shapes and sizes. Many of the guys sport tattoos and few have pierced nipples or cocks.
There are lots of first-timers here, full-figured men who have fantasized about getting naked for the cameras but who would have been shunned by the rest of Pornland. In fact, when the site first opened six years ago they mostly filmed amateurs with the odd familiar face from bear porn. But these days, there's almost an equal split between amateurs and porn stars, maybe even more of the latter. So you'll recognize many porn performers including Stephen Harte, Hugh Hunter, Dolf Dietrich, Steve Sommers, Brad Kalvo, Lanz Adams and Marc Angelo.
The action at Hairy and Raw is a mix of duos and quite a few threesomes, and you'll also be treated to some horny foursomes and fiveways. And these men don't hold back, either - there's lots of kissing, dick sucking, ass eating, plenty of raw fucking, and of course they blow their loads all over each other. There's cum gobbling, too, but not in every scene. And it goes without saying that the men don't use condoms here - all the action is bareback. While there aren't many solo jack-off sessions, there are some.
There's a mix of indoor and outdoor sessions with men fucking in bedrooms, living rooms, hotel rooms or by the pool. The site regularly films scenes with men in leather gear like harnesses and jockstraps having sex in playrooms with a sling, a St. Andrew's cross or a fucking bench. There's a series of videos set in the Bear Riders Motorcycle Club where several bears get their asses fucked on their motorcycles, and there's another series featuring guys in puppy play complete with dog masks and tails screwed into their butt holes.
Hairy and Raw currently offers 250 videos, and they continue to update with a scene every week. The vids are offered in MP4 format, and unless you specifically buy a membership that includes downloads, you'll be streaming these. The new releases are sized at 1280x720, but the player size varies depending on your screen size. I have a 26-inch monitor and they played as big as 1580x890 when I went full screen. The quality is pretty good on the new releases, and they're generally offered in three qualities. Older videos are only offered in two speeds, and I found the quality to be fairly good, so the videos generally fare decently in full-screen mode. The majority of the videos are full scenes, but there are some two-parters here and there. The videos are also mobile compatible so you shouldn't have any problems viewing them on your cell phones and tablets.
As far as downloads are concerned, there are two options. Many episodes have a "Buy Scene" button where you can purchase downloads à la carte, and they generally cost $12.99 each, but recently Hairy and Raw introduced a yearly membership that includes downloads. I'm afraid no such option exists on the monthly membership.
The site offers approximately 670 picture sets, but I can't tell you exactly how many as Hairy and Raw's redesign eliminated a dedicated photos section. You can find pictures in several ways - each model's page shows all his available videos and galleries; clicking All on the navigation bar will show you all of the videos and photo mixed together in one section; and finally, most episode page has the video and a picture gallery, if the episode has one. Most newer ones do have pics but the very oldest scenes don't. The newest pictures display at 1800x2400 and the older ones at 1066x1600, but there may be smaller sizes, as well. You view the pics in galleries, and while there are forward and back controls, there's no hands-free slideshows. You can download entire sets in zip files or save them individually.
Members get access to the feed versions of 16 bonus sites from the same network, and each offers nine to 12 videos. I don't know if these are changed or updated or whether it's a static offering. But the good news is that the videos generally play in the same large player, and five of the 12 bonus sites feature masculine hairy men.
There are a few issues. First there's pre-checked offer on the billing page that will sign you up for another membership, and it's disguised to look like site terms and conditions. Second, while I was happy to see a membership option that now includes downloads, it's only available as a one-year membership and it's three times the price of the streaming-only annual membership. And by the way, the annual streaming-only membership price isn't shown anywhere on the join or billing page (it's $99.95).
Hairy and Raw used to offer exclusive content, but as of recently, it no longer does. The company who produces the site's videos runs a number of other hairy men and bareback sites, and there's quite a lot of content sharing between these half dozen sites. You're still going to get videos featuring hairy men and bears sucking and fucking raw, and some of them may be Hairy and Raw productions while others may have appeared on other sites, and the Hairy and Raw videos pop up on the other sites, as well.
If you like hairy men, bears and cubs, and sexy daddies, you'll already know that the pickings are slim out there in Pornland, so Hairy and Raw is a good place to satisfy your cravings for bear men and bareback sex. The site has grown quite a lot since it opened six years ago, and they're still adding a scene every week. With 250 videos, you'll have plenty to watch, and don't forget about the bonus videos, many of which also feature bareback fucking plus a few offer hairy men, too. I'm disappointed that the site doesn't offer a monthly download membership option and I'm not a fan of the content sharing scheme, but neither is a deal breaker for me. Hairy and Raw is still a fun and dirty site, and I'm sure these bears will turn you on.
