Straight Naked Thugs focuses on guys I haven't seen in a porn site before - white thugs, who are sometimes referred to as "wiggers". There are also some ethnic thugs in the site, but the models here are primariy tough street-talkin' white guys with tats and plenty of attitude. The site doesn't make a lot of claims, but they do let us know that Quicktime 7 or better is required to view the videos, and you can browse all the models from the member area.
There are currently 24 videos inside Straight Naked Thugs video section. Each of these are offered in Quicktime format at a screen size of 640x360 and a bitrate of around 820k. The videos are offered for streaming and download, and you can watch full scenes or clips as you prefer. The videos are good quality and fairly large, and only lose a little quality if you go full screen with them. The lighting and hand-held camera work is amateur but is pretty good overall.
The models inside Straight Naked Thugs are everything the tour would lead you to believe. They talk the talk when they talk to the camera. They're mostly 19 to their mid-20s, tough with plenty of street attitude - even after they shoot their loads. The guys each jack off, some with another gangsta in the room, most solo. Expect some tattoos, goatees and plenty of guys smoking or throwing gang signs. When it comes to the models, I'd say this site really delivers the goods.
The pics are digital stills shown at 675x900. The pics are average porn quality and the photography is amateur. I notice it in the lighting, which is hard and slightly yellow. Still, the pics are fairly sharp and you can always see the action. You'll find pics in the FRESH THUGS, STREET THUGS, ALPHA THUGS, MUGSHOTS and BITCHIN DOWN/THUGS TOGETHER sections, as well as in MODELS. The pic sets all have ads for DVDs on them on the right, and that leaves less room for the thumbs on the left, but the ads - although prominant - are easy to avoid if you choose not to click them.
Content inside the member area isn't as simple to browse as I would like. While there is a link to see the all videos, if you'd like to see all the pic sets, you'll have to go through 5 different categories, and some of the listings in each category are videos while others are pics, so keep an eye out for the small video pic to the lower right out each set - the ones without it are the pic sets.
I did have a couple issues with the site. One is that when you join, there is a pre-checked box to sign you up for the mailing list. You may want to join the mailing list, in which case you don't need to do anything. But if that isn't something that interests you, you'll have to remember to uncheck the mailing list box. Also I was unable to download more than 1 video at a time, nor was I able to navigate pages while a video was downloading.
Straight Naked Thugs delivers exactly the kind of guys they offer on the tour - thugs - in J/O vids and pic sets. The videos are good quality and downloadable, the pics are good-sized. The site says it adds 1 and 1 pic set per week, and while the vids are updated weekly, the pic sets are added more frequently for now. If you like guys with a tough street attitude - particularly white and latin guys - Straight Naked Thugs is a site you shouldn't miss.
