Hot Barebacking has grown considerably since our last review two years ago and it's still offering condom-free sex featuring a wide variety of guys. All of the action here is bareback with a healthy selection of group sex and gang bangs. We last reviewed the site in January of 2010 and there have been some changes, so it's time for another look.
The guys on Hot Barebacking are a wide mix of men from 20 to 40+ years of age. The younger guys range from twinkish types with slender, smooth bodies to jock and boy-next-door types with athletic bodies in their early to mid twenties. There's quite a selection of black and Latino men and lots of masculine mature men - leather men, muscle bears, daddies - with fit to muscular bodies. I found a lot of hairy men and quite of few tattooed guys, but there are plenty of smooth and clean-cut guys, too. The men are a mix of amateurs and established gay porn performers, and because SX Video (the producers of the content) have been filming for many years, you'll find men you perhaps haven't seen for a while like Jeff Palmer, Eric Evans, Josh Weston, and Chad Conners - but there are plenty of newer faces like Fyrefli, Nick Moretti, Jake Wetmore, and Lito Cruz. With almost 300 men featured on the site, you're bound to find lots of performers to your liking.
The sex is mostly guy-on-guy sucking and fucking with no condoms. Some of the scenes get into some kinkier action with about 20 episodes featuring piss play and a dozen with fisting. But the vast majority of scenes are your standard kissing, sucking, rimming, and raw fucking with lots of cum splooging over well-fucked butt holes or splashing into cum-hungry mouths. There's a hefty number of group sex scenes - 70 of them - and these feature threeways, fourways, and multi-man gang bangs.
Hot Barebacking usually updates weekly with a new episode, although once in a while they miss a week. The newer downloadable videos are available in one size (850x480) and older videos display at 640x480. This site uses DRM, which means you have to enter your password to watch these downloaded versions, and MAC users can only stream the videos on the site. The videos are also available in streaming WMV and Flash. The streaming movies come in the same screen sizes as their downloadable counterparts, but they're offered in four or five speeds from a claimed 38k to 1500k, the latter is only available for newer releases.
The quality of the videos is fairly good. These aren't high-end studio productions, but they're not amateur, either. The videos here are largely well-lit with good sound and picture quality, but some of the older videos seem to suffer a bit from over optimizing in the encoding process and could have clearer image quality, but overall they're definitely watchable.
Each episode also comes with a gallery of photos. There's no dedicated picture gallery section, but the pics are included on each episode's detail page. The pictures are a mix of digital photos and screen captures and they display in a variety of sizes from 900x675 to 853x1280, but some are as small as 300x450. And each episode has anywhere from a handful to several dozen pictures. You can view these in galleries or use the site's slide-show feature. There are no downloadable zip files, but you can save pictures individually.
Your membership to Hot Barebacking also gives you access to the mobile version of the site for you cell phone users, plus some exclusive bonus sites from the same network. There are also 39 third-party video feeds offering you more content and some of that is bareback, but most isn't. And there's a live sex show twice a month with an archive of over 500 past shows. They also have a feature that allows you to the cam with other members and that can be fun.
The only things I didn't like about the site is their persistence with DRM. Most sites have abandoned DRM, but this family of sites perseveres, and that's a pain for members. And like I've already said, some of the videos could have clearer picture quality, but most of the movies were generally pretty good.
If raw fucking turns you on, Hot Barebacking is a powerhouse site packed with over 375 videos. I liked the mix of amateurs and porn stars and with a wide variety of men on the site; there really is something for everyone. While the DRM-protected videos are a bother, the site gives members excellent value with their weekly updates and bonus site access. If that sounds good, why not check out Hot Barebacking's free tour and previews and see what you think of this gang of horny cum pigs?
