Masculine Bears says they put the focus on "muscles, beef, hair, intense action" and I definitely see a lot of masculine men including plenty of older daddies, leather men, cowboys and cops, construction workers, military men and amateur guys. Many of the performers on the site have hairy chests - some hairier than others - but what I didn't see was any actual big-bodied bears. Most of the men here are over 30 - many over 40 - and they really know their way around a cock.
I did see some very hot duos fucking, sucking, giving rimjobs and covering each others' furry bodies with cum, and there are also some group sex scenes including a couple hot foursomes. The locations are often sexy, too, as there's some dungeon action, locker rooms and police stations, a garage (I love hot, sweaty mechanics getting it on!), a few outdoor scenarios and sometimes a bed or couch.
Masculine Bears offers 65 videos, and they are not adding any updates, so what you see is what you get. The DRM-free videos are available in both downloadable WMVs and streaming Flash. The videos are full scenes and are shown at 640x480. The WMVs have a bitrate of approx 1.3 Mbps and are average quality, and the streaming Flash vids are somewhat lower in quality. The videos are ripped from DVDs, and as is often the case, they just aren't as sharp and clear as videos that aren't taken from DVDs.
Each video also comes with a set of screencaps, which are offered at the same size as the videos. While screencaps are lower in quality than digital stills, these aren't too bad and will definitely help if you want to preview the action in a movie before watching it. If you find a set you like, you can download the pics in a zip file or watch the entire set as a hands-free slideshow.
In addition to the videos and pics, Masculine Bears members get access to 8 bonus sites in the same network: Kinky Gay Bears, Cock of the Law, Older Gay Daddies, Euro Gay BDSM, Muscled Cocks, Two Dicks in his Ass, Gay Medics and Kinky Older Men. The site also has a section called Streaming Channels where there are 15 gay video feeds in a variety of niches. Last is a collection of erotic stories.
Did I run into any issues at the site? As mentioned, the site doesn't add new content. Other than that, I have one additional complaint, and this one is about the navigation - each movie listing page has only one video listed on it. That means in order to browse all 65 videos, you'll need to click through 65 pages. While video quality could be better, the videos are watchable enough not to be an issue.
While Masculine Bears doesn't seem to have any bears, it does have muscle bears, daddies and a variety of hairy and masculine men. Most of the 65 videos I saw were hardcore, and there were plenty of manly settings and guys sucking cock and fucking. The videos here are offered in both downloadable DRM-free WMVs and streaming Flash, and the videos are big and fairly good quality. While the site doesn't add new content, there are bonus sites featuring cops, hairy guys and older men, plus there's a collection of stories and 15 gay video feeds. While I wish the videos were higher quality, I like the hairy, manly men in action at Masculine Bears ... even if there weren't any actual bears.
