Hammer Boys is a site presenting the hardcore gay porn of the Hammer Entertainment studio, a popular DVD producer with a specific focus on young and horny European boys all aged between 18 and their mid 20's. As the majority of their performers are European, the Hammer Boys site is a great place for fans of uncut cocks, Euro jocks and horny twinks. The tour has been updated in recent months and now gives better insight to the content available to members, with pages of video previews and much more information including Apple compatibility, HD quality, dated updates and DRM free status. But enough of the tour, lets check out the action in the members area.
Everything looks pretty much the same as soon as you log in, with all the latest scenes in videos and galleries listed on the first page and options to see more from that category. There are no dates to these images, but when you click through to watch the video you see that there are regular updates every one or two days. There are 15 updates displaying on the first page, followed by thumbs of their top 10 performers. This is also followed by a selection of the latest galleries, and by miscellaneous collections of three videos focusing on big dicks, fetish action and full DVD's split into parts. It's pretty straightforward and easy to navigate, with each section leading you to more complete lists.
There are currently 454 videos to watch on the site, from a total of 85 DVD's starring some of the sexiest 18 to 25 year old European guys in the business. When viewing the DVD section members can watch all the scenes from each DVD in order. There are plenty of formats available, with downloads in DIVX, Flash, Quicktime and WMV at a size of 1280x720 and at 3Mbps, and with DIVX and Flash both offered in a smaller size. MP4 format can be downloaded in 320x180 at up to 800kbp. Older videos are offered at smaller sizes. All videos can also be streamed in Flash, and are shown at from 540x430 to 768x430, depending on the age of the video. Members have the option to download or stream the complete DVD, or can select individual scenes.
When it comes to images, they are seemingly not linked from the video streaming/download pages. Members can view the profile pages of the guys appearing, and see their associated galleries and videos from their page, or go back to the home page to click through to see all galleries. Not every video has an associated gallery but there are currently 86 sets available containing digital stills, and each of these can be downloaded in zip file formats. There are three size options available including 1600x1066, 1280x853 and 1024x682. Images can also be viewed individually on the gallery page without downloading, but there are no slideshow options for hands-free viewing.
Like a lot of sites, Hammer Boys offers some bonus content too. This includes 30 videos from director Luis Blava, and 20 videos from Falcon International, not to be confused with the world famous Falcon Studios. These can be easily found when clicking "Categories" from the top menu in all pages, and lists all the different categories of action. It should be noted that there are some great fetish collections here too, with pissing and gay BDSM, amateur style home videos, solo jerk off and so on.
When it comes to any issues I had with the site, navigation is the one that stands out. Although it's easy for those who enjoy videos, anyone wanting photos might not understand why they are not linked more adequately from the associated videos. It is a small problem, and one most would work out through persistence. It just doesn't make sense not to link the galleries from the video pages in my opinion. There are also a couple DVDs with no videos yet, a couple videos listed that are 0 minutes long, and the pics and full scenes are listed so you always have to stop and read which is which.
Information on the site is extremely limited, too, with no details about the performers on their pages and no text to describe the scenes. As such, there is no real story or sense of the performers personalities or sexual interests here, just hot guys fucking. One last issue is that search results are very poor, just as they were on our last visit.
The Hammer Boys models are, without a doubt, hot guys. The action here is well filmed, with close up shots of all the uncut cocks in action, and multiple angles for cumshots. European gay porn has a reputation for plenty of foreskin, larger than average cum loads and gay bareback sex - Hammer Boys definitely lives up to that and is a worthy competitor against other large gay European sites. I would recommend the site to anyone who loves uncut cock, defined 18 to 20-something jocks, a lot of oral and bareback action, and messy cum shots. With their regular updates every day or 2 plus the existing catalog, Hammer Boys is a reasonably priced site with some really great content.
