Homo Active offers a very good-sized collection of gay DVD titles including all sorts of guys: skater boys and Euro punks and studs, muscle hunks, daddies and bears, Latinos, twinks and even more performers, both amateurs and porn pros. I found that a lot of the guys here are well-hung - in some cases, VERY well hung - and since there's a good selection of European men, there are lots of uncut cocks. There's content from studios including Treasure Island Media, Lucas Entertainment, UK Naked Men, Butch Dixon and Boys-Pissing, to name just a few.
Much of what the site offers is hardcore, kinky or both, but I did find some hot masturbation scenes, as well. When it comes to action, not only are there plenty of guys sucking cock, making out and fucking; the site also offers plenty of extreme stuff like fisting, barebacking, sports-themed action, pissing, gangbangs and even a few sounding titles. If you're looking for down and dirty, there's plenty of it, and there's also feature films with actual plots.
Homo Active currently offers 1351 multi-scene DVD titles, 1125 of which are offered for download, and 4 new DVD titles are added every Tuesday and Friday, for a total of 8 DVDs every month. When there are HD and standard versions of the same title, they are added on the same day and count as a single update. There are a couple different ways to enjoy the content; you can either pay by the minute to stream full gay porn DVDs or individual scenes, or you can pay to own a scene or DVD and download them to add to your permanent collection. It's handy, too, that non-members can browse all the titles and scenes without registering.
Both downloadable and streaming videos are offered in MP4. Standard videos are sized at 720x406 and HD at 1280x720, but all the videos - HD and standard - enlarge pretty well to full screen, although quality varies a bit. There's also a lower res version that's pretty good, but I wouldn't go full screen with these. Sound was good on the videos I watched, and the downloadable videos are DRM-free, so once you buy either a scene or full DVD, they're yours forever. One thing worth mentioning is that you must download the videos within 48 hours of purchase. A cool thing is that each downloadable DVD comes with a graphic of the actual box cover, both front and back.
Each DVD scene comes with a set of 3 pics, and these are good quality and probably digital stills. 600x455. While 3 pics isn't a lot, it looks like someone is hand-choosing these pics, because the pics are well-lit and show off the guys and the action to perfect. In fact, I was disappointed that the pics aren't downloadable.
There are a few things worth mentioning here. First, each time you stream or buy a video you get points that can be used to watch more videos. Second, the DVDs in the Special Deals section aren't the only lower priced per minute streaming videos, so it could be worth browsing - although sadly there's no way to sort videos by price per minute. And last, but not least, if you plan to watch a lot, the two most expensive plans include a free DVD download, which makes them very good values for power users.
Paying by the minute may or may not be a good value, depending on how much porn you watch. If you only watch porn videos a few times a month, or only watch a few minutes each time, paying by the minute could be a better value. Also handy is that any money you pay for credits has no expiration date for the time you buy at Homo Active. Another handy thing - you don't need to remember to cancel a membership as you only pay for what you watch.
One issue is that there are a fair amount of banner ads on the home page, mostly for related products like the Homo Active DVD store and sites and live chat from related companies.
Homo Active delivers good quality streaming videos, an easy to navigate site and good browsing and searching options. Their downloadable titles are good quality, and the site adds 8 DVDs per week, 4 on Tuesdays and 4 every Friday. I like the extreme and hardcore action here, not to mention the parody titles and some classy stuff, as well. Plus there are plenty of uncut cocks in the Euro and ethnic sections. I was pretty impressed by how much Homo Active has grown, the variety it offers and the harder stuff like fisting, barebacking and piss - overall, this site will keep you busy with all the uncut cocks, variety from cute twinks to pig sex and fetish and the ever-growing number of DVDs.
