Randy Blue is an award-winning gay porn site that has been bringing us hot jocks since 2003, and they've garnered the reputation of having some of the sexiest guys around. The site has over 650 models and many do multiple appearances. Most are jocks have athletic to very well-built bodies; most are good-looking guys in their twenties, mostly clean shaven and many are smooth bodied, but Randy Blue doesn't shy away from hairy, tattooed, or bearded guys either. Jock porn sites aren't known for their diversity, but you will find some black studs, Latinos, and a handful of Asian guys. Randy Blue is constantly introducing us to hot new models, but they also have a stable of regulars, and very recently a few of the updates were shot in Europe and licensed to the site, so you'll find a few Euro guys in the mix.
When it comes to sex, Randy Blue keeps things pretty simple rather than bogging us down with complicated plots or set-ups - a couple of guys working out in the gym cruise each other, drop their weights and fuck. Some of the solo scenes open with a brief introduction segment where the models give their name and stats, the kinds of guys and action they like before jacking their dicks, and sometimes playing with toys. Likewise, the older duo action scenes open with the guys introducing themselves but the newer ones often get right into the action; sometimes they have a bit of fun first. Popular hunks Austin Wolf and Kurtis Wolfe start off eating fruit, make out passionately, suck each other's cocks, and do some rimming; then they flip-flop fuck, taking turns boning each before shooting their loads and eating cum.
Most of the action is duos, although there are 93 threesomes, and the guys get into lots of kissing, licking, and touching, which really helps set the mood before they start sucking, rimming, fucking, and cumming. The guys fuck in living rooms and bedrooms, but there's a lot of gym action and some outdoor sex scenes.
Randy Blue now offers 1,478 DRM-free videos and adds a new one six or more times a month; there have been three solos out of the last twenty updates. Hands down, Randy Blue has the largest offering of video formats and sizes of any gay porn site. The newest downloadable videos come in four sizes of MP4 from 1280x720 to 700x394 and four sizes of WMV displaying at 960x540 down to 160x90. There are also are mobile and cell phone versions (three of each). Older videos are smaller but still decent and come in less sizes, but generally have two MP4s and three WMVs, and they also have tablet and mobile versions. And then there are the streaming versions. The production values are consistent, the videos are good quality as is the lighting and sound.
There are also 1,628 photo galleries. The pictures are good quality digital stills that display at 768x1024. Newer galleries have 30 to 60 photos while older ones have 80 to 100. You can view them in thumbnail galleries or use the slideshow feature. You can save the pictures individually, but there's no downloadable zip files.
An interesting Randy Blue feature is the free membership that gives you access to all of their photo galleries and loads your account with 80 chat credits. That sounds impressive, but a one-minute chat with a model costs 60 to 90 credits or spying on a private session is 25 credits a minute. You get 300 free credits when you sign up for 12-month membership, but you could easily burn through that in 10 minutes or less.
To be honest, I don't like the new version of the site. Don't get me wrong; the guys and sex are hot - some of the best you'll find anywhere - but the site now does such a big push to get you to spend more money in their live chat section. The top half of the homepage promotes their live chat section and you have to scroll down to the lower half of the page to see the site's latest videos. And the right side of the pages show the guys you can check out in live chat. While there's heaps of video to download and enjoy with your monthly membership, I found the constant upselling annoying.
There are a few more small complaints. First is that updates were a bit less regular - there were four less updates in November than September, so it's a bit random, but there are still at least six updates per month. And possibly as a result, a few of the very latest updates were shot in Europe and licensed to the site. One last thing worth mentioning is the download speeds: while not actually slow, at just under 1 Mbps, they're pretty lackluster for HD videos - I've been seeing over 10 Mbps at most sites these days, and I'd love to see that kind of speed here.
Randy Blue gets top marks for having some of the hottest jocks and studs around, heaps of videos (there are currently 1,478 exclusive vids), frequent updates, and lots of video options including several for mobiles. The new free membership gives you a great opportunity to preview the models and the site. I'm really torn here because Randy Blue has so many sexy performers who I'd love to see more of but all the selling for their live chat really kills my boner. You'll have to take a look at the tour and judge for yourself.
