Southern Strokes' producer is located in the rural Southern United States, and he finds horny studs from all over the South to experience their first times stroking their cocks on camera and explore guy-on-guy sex. The guys range from 18 to their late twenties, and they have great physiques from slender and athletic to ripped and muscular, so you can expect plenty of well-built, good-looking guys. They're also at the prime of their sexuality, oozing with horniness and testosterone and willing to explore. It's been a couple years since our last visit, so it's time to take another look at Southern Strokes.
Each solo video opens with a short interview that lets us meet the guys and hear a little about how they came to be filming at Southern Strokes. One of my favorite guys is Connor, a stocky, blond 21-year-old who just had his first sexual experience with a guy six months ago. He's going to school and plans to become a doctor. He was at a party, got a little drunk, and ended up relaxing on a bed with another guy. He says they kind of just looked at each other and it happened. They started kissing, then they swapped blowjobs, and shot their loads.
The duo videos start off with the guys kissing and touching - they seem to be really into each other and the experience - and then move to sucking each others' cocks, doing some rimming and fucking in a variety of positions before the guys each cum. The action didn't feel faked to me, and it's always hot to see guys who are really turned on.
And that's how it generally goes on this amateur guy site. These jocks and studs arrive at the site and usually start off with a jerk-off video; then if they're into it, they explore guy-on-guy sex. These Southern hotties are often a little shy and tentative at first, but as the filming goes on they can be quite expressive, adventurous and even downright wild.
The site has gone through some changes since they opened in 2008. Back then, they featured mostly jerk-off videos with the odd guy-on-guy sex scene thrown in. (The first 12 videos on the site were solo guys jerking off, the thirteenth finally saw some guy-on-guy action.) But these days, they've done a full reversal: of the latest 11 videos on their homepage, five of them feature guys jacking off, six movies are hardcore sucking and fucking, and man - do those Southern boys know how to fuck.
All 275 Southern Strokes videos are available in WMV and QuickTime formats. There are either three or four different options for the downloadable WMVs, including one called "Super Res" at 1280x720 that isn't available on all videos (100 of the older videos don't have them) but their 960x540 and 640x360 options are still good. There are also three versions of QuickTime videos to download, the largest sized at 960x540. There's a link to stream each video, but in reality it's just another link to one of the downloadable videos that plays in your browser - honestly, I'd recommend downloading and viewing the vids.
Each episode also comes with a set of pictures. These are digital stills that are shown in thumbnailed galleries on the same pages as their corresponding videos, but there's a catch - all the linked thumbs lead to missing pictures. Luckily the pic sets are available packed in downloadable zip files that work fine. The pictures are sized at 640x960 or 960x540, show off the guys and the action well and are pretty good amateur quality, so they're definitely worth spending a couple minutes downloading the zip files.
Now for the downsides of this site. I was disappointed to discover a couple things when I logged in: First, the tour and member area claim the site has 516 videos, but in reality there are only 275, and the bigger disappointment is that the site has stopped adding new content. It still updates - sort of - by using older content as new updates - but no new content is being added. And there are some more issues, as well. The top of the first tour page has several thumbs; these are ads for a live cam site that will take you away from Southern Strokes. You'll get a pop-up if you hit back on the billing page. And as already mentioned, the full sized pics are missing from the galleries; you must save the downloadable zip files if you want to see the photos.
Here's a couple last thoughts, although these aren't precisely issues. First is that the trial gives only three days' access and is only a few bucks less than a recurring monthly membership. That being the case, why not treat yourself to a full month? Despite the lack of updates, there's definitely enough to keep pretty much anyone busy for 30 days. And btw, the non-recurring monthly membership costs $13 more than a regular recurring monthly membership; since the recurring is so easy to cancel, it makes more sense to get the recurring membership to save a few bucks and cancel when you're ready.
Southern Strokes delivers hot and horny amateur guys, most of whom you won't have seen anywhere else, and I like that a lot. There's nothing worse that having some site blazing "Watch John getting fucked for the first time" only to head off to some other site and find John getting banged by another dude. Most of these Southern studs are the real deal - amateur guys who haven't done gay porn before and many truly are having their first jerkoff or gay sex on camera. Most of them are pretty good looking and well built; some are regular guys, some are hot jocks, and with 275 videos on hand, you won't have trouble finding heaps of guys to turn you on. Despite the lack of updates and other issues, there's enough videos to keep members busy for a month or two; I really like the site and I still recommend Southern Strokes.
