Lads Next Door offers real amateur guy-next-door types, mostly from England. There's plenty of variety here - there are smooth, twinkish first-timers and regular guys - the kind you might find in a shop, at the park or on the street. There are also a couple muscle men, not to mention some very hot hunks and a daddy or two. Some of the models here have tats and a little "bad boy" attitude, some have unshaved pubic hair or hairy chests, some trim their body hair or shave it off - but all of them are horny and can't wait to strip and get off on camera. And it should be no surprise that since most of the guys are from the UK, members can expect lots of juicy uncut cocks.
Since these are amateurs, how far they're willing to go varies from man to man. Some strip and stroke their cocks solo, but once they're revved up, many are willing to get a helping hand from the director. If you love watching straight guys with foreskin getting jerked, that's a plus. Some guys are willing to do some assplay on camera, using sex toys in tight puckered buttholes. And there's a few man-on-man shoots where UK amateurs enjoy each other's dicks and asses. The action here is well shot, the guys and the action feel very honest and authentic - and fucking hot!
Lads Next Door now offers 82 exclusive videos, 41 more than there were 5 months ago. A new video is added every 3 to 7 days - about every other week, two vids are added per week. The videos are offered in 2 downloadable formats - MP4 and WMV - and also in streaming Flash. All the vids are good amateur quality, shown at 960x540 and 2 smaller sizes, the smaller of which works great on mobiles including iPhone and iPod. Sound is pretty good, the interviewer isn't annoying, and the action and cumshots are well-caught. And more good news is that the videos are all DRM-free.
There are also 15 pic sets (10 more than there were on our last visit), and these are pretty good stuff. The galleries have nice big thumbs, which I really like, and the pics are shown at about 460x690. They're a medium size, look pretty good, and can be viewed as a hands-free slide show, and the newer sets can be saved in zip files. One thing worth mentioning about the pic sets is that there's not a lot of nudity in some sets - overall it seems that the pics are mostly shot as the guys stripped, and while they do show some cock and ass, the action is saved for the videos.
You won't find bonus sites or feeds here, but there is a blog that's quite a fun read. It's not your average blog made to market the site to non-members, and while only the newer blogs have pics (and they're just big thumbs), you can read about the site owner's experiences shooting content, looking at porn, finding models and buying underwear. Definitely worth a read, the blog is available in the member area as well as on the tour. There's also a model index, and each guy has a little description about him plus a profile including his cock size, age and some more fun facts, plus links to the model's pics and videos.
When it comes to issues and quibbles, there's not much to complain about. Sure, I'd have preferred to have a pic set for each video, but it's not really a big deal. The content here is mostly solo assplay and jerkoffs or helping hand videos, so those looking for more hardcore may find there's not enough man-on-man to satisfy them. One thing I would have liked is to be able to browse by type of content - either videos only or pics only, but overall the site is easy to navigate. Last, it may be worth mentioning that while the tour promises 2 updates per week, sometimes 1 of those updates is a pic set with no video.
Lads Next Door delivers hot amateur guys of all types, most British and all with uncut cocks. The 82 videos are exclusive, downloadable and DRM-free, and they're better than a lot of the amateur fare out there. And the action delivers, from solo jerk off sessions to duos, helping hand and anal toys. The site has continued to grow due to updates that are weekly or better, and I gotta say that I liked everything this site has to offer, despite the small number of photo sets. Lads Next Door is fulfilling their promise with continued updates, good quality content, plus they've added some features and continue to offer real UK amateurs (and lots of uncut cocks).
