There's been some changes at Raging Stallion Studios since our last visit including a new and modern design, so it's time to update you on what's been going on. First, a bit of history: Raging Stallion Studios was started by Chris Ward and JD Slater in 1999, and aside from DVD production, the studio ran seven sites - Hairy Boyz, Rear Stable, Hard Friction, Sex Gaymes, Monster Bang, High Octane, and Xtra Inches - that they merged into one mega site called Raging Stallion. Their parent company bought Falcon Studios, then they acquired Hot House, and the three production companies formed Falcon Studios Group, however each brand still maintains its own membership site.
Raging Stallion used to feature primarily handsome hunks and muscle bears with hard bodies; they were often hairy with facial hair and lots of big cocks, but the merger with Falcon and Hot House and the crossover of performers between the three studios makes it difficult to define a Raging Stallion man with absolute clarity. Generally speaking, you'll still find lots of hairy, masculine, and bearded men here. And while Raging Stallion has introduced us to new faces like Boomer Banks, David Benjamin, and Johnny V, most of their performers are already established in the business - men like Rocco Steele, Nick Capra, Logan Moore, Billy Santoro, and Dario Beck, to name only a few. These porn hunks range in age from their twenties to forties and they sport athletic to muscular bodies.
Raging Stallion used to be king of the theme movie, featuring leather men, cowboys, Arab sheiks, and military men fucking in exotic settings or on location in warehouses, dude ranches, and boot camps; most of the filming now happens indoors on a set with changing backgrounds and props. Occasionally they film on location at a beautiful estate or a ranch, but gone are the days when a cast and crew of dozens were flown to Hawaii or other locations.
You can expect lots of hot man-sex with kissing, sucking, rimming, and fucking in duos, threesomes and small groups. I don't remember the last time I saw a solo jack-off video at Raging Stallion (looks like it was over 12 years ago) - the action these days is all hardcore. The studio has resisted the tide of producers going bareback, so with the exception of some third-party video plugins, all the action here is filmed with condoms. Raging Stallion is also well known for their fetish, kink, and fisting scenes, but that content is fairly limited here as it mostly appears on a separate fetish site.
There are currently 1,819 videos from all the studios, over 800 of which are specifically produced by Raging Stallions Productions, and the site adds an update every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. You can stream the videos in MP4 format, but there are no downloads. The videos display at 1200x650, which works great for the newer videos offered in two HD sizes at good quality and five smaller sizes all the way down to vids suitable for older mobiles. Alas, the oldest videos don't fare as well since they were shot at smaller sizes originally and must be stretched to fit the player. I discovered that when I shrunk my browser so the video player was smaller, it helped the quality of the older videos quite a bit.
There are also 3,616 picture galleries in the members area featuring a mix of model glamour photos and posed action shots. These are digital stills ranging from 857x1220 to 1280x1920, depending on the age of the shoot, but most of the pics are shown at the larger size. Overall quality is good, although some of the oldest pics aren't as sharp and clear. Some galleries only feature a photo or two, others have over 200 photos. You can view them as galleries or slideshows, or you can download the pics either individually or in zip files. While the photos are shown smaller in your browser, you can expand them to full size by clicking the icon on the lower right corner.
The site offers the Raging Stallion DVD lines as well as what are listed as member exclusive videos; content from Hairy Boyz, Monster Bang, Hard Friction, and High Octane is also available. Of those lines, High Octane is not producing new content, and clicking Hairy Boyz actually takes you to what is essentially a hairy category, as many of the releases aren't actually from Hairy Boyz. Monster Bang is still updating, but irregularly, and there was a three-month break between updates earlier this year; Hard Friction also had a couple month break recently. And the videos listed as member exclusives are actually from Falcon, Hot House, and Kristen Bjorn, so one of the three weekly updates is actually from Raging Stallion.
Let's talk about extras. First, the site has recently started adding interviews with the stars of the videos; there are 15 so far, and these are long and interesting if you find some of your favorites there. There's also the CINEMA XXX section, where you'll find 18 video feeds offering content from producers like Hot Desert Knights, Treasure Island Media, Jake Cruise, and Ricky Raunch; each feed offers 20 streaming videos.
1-CLICK PROMOS section didn't have any promos when I visited, and the LIVE section is a third-party live cam site branded with the Raging Stallions name where there is free chat but full nudity and action will cost by the minute.
I did find some issues here. There is a pre-checked offer on the right side of the billing page that will sign you up for an additional site if you leave it checked. When joining, members are automatically signed up for the email list, and there's no way to opt out at the time you join. Also, if you hit your browser's back button from the billing page, you'll be hit up with a pop-up console. The videos aren't offered for download, which will be a disappointment for some. Still, the streaming servers are fast, so I didn't have problems enjoying them. One last thing is that since the oldest videos are not HD and don't look great in the HD player, it would be great if the site could offer them in a smaller sized player.
I loved Raging Stallion's grand productions spanning multiple DVDs, the older videos featuring hunks sucking and fucking in Arabian tents, deserts, boot camps and barracks, dude ranches, jungles, and other exotic locations. The newer videos are hot, too, with muscular, masculine porn stars fucking in lots of outdoor scenes, in ranch cabins, but mostly on porn sets. They film top-notch performers with the hardest bodies in the business, many with big dicks. The members area is updated once a week with a Raging Stallion production plus two more times a week with updates from Falcon and Hot House releases, and you have unlimited viewing of over 1,800 videos, so there lots here to keep your cock hard.
