Strong Men focuses on muscular men and well-built hunks showering, jerking off, using sex toys, and plenty of cock sucking and fucking. The site offers a mix of exclusive or semi-exclusive content plus a large collection of gay sex DVDs. It's been almost three years since we visited this site, and there have been some changes, so it's time to head back for a fresh look.
The performers on Strong Men are largely guys in their twenties and early thirties with nice bodies. Some of their bodybuilders are big and beefy, but most of the models on the site sport athletic, gym-built bodies. The site also features a lot of DVD content, so you'll find guys from all over the world here: Eastern European, Latino and South American men, other European guys and Americans. There's a decent selection of black men, too. And foreskin fans will like the heaps uncut cocks.
Strong Men has a mix of content. There are some videos that are exclusive to the site, others are non-exclusive that I've seen on a couple of other sites, and there's a section with 359 non-exclusive DVDs. The semi and exclusive videos have a high number of solo jack-off sessions, but there's some hardcore sex, as well - it runs in ratios of two-thirds to one-third. The DVD section is where you're going to find lots of variety, not only in men but in the sex that's offered. You'll find lots of duo sucking and fucking, threeways, group sex and gangbangs, interracial sex, bareback and condom sex, indoor and outdoor sex. There's something for almost everyone, but what's consistent is that the performers are generally sporting some pretty nicely muscled bodies.
Before I get into the number of videos on Strong Men, I'll have to explain a few things. There are lots of videos on Strong Men itself, but members also get access to three bonus sites: Studport (pics and videos of studs and hunks), Gay Hot (amateur and user-submitted videos), and Ebony Men XXX (small video site featuring black men).
So on Strong Men itself there are 197 videos, some are exclusive, others are semi-exclusive; then there are 1654 scenes from DVDs. The videos are all downloadable, but they come in a variety of sizes and formats depending on the age of the videos. Generally speaking, the downloadable videos come in two sizes; 640x480 and 320x240, but some of the newest releases play at 1280x720. The streaming versions play at the same two smaller sizes, but some play at a slightly large size of 770x580, and there's a third version for mobile devices. The videos are DRM free, so they're yours to keep. There are also another 154 videos over on Studport, 1656 amateur and user-submitted videos on Gay Hot, and 16 videos on Ebony Men XXX.
Strong Men also offers 65 picture galleries. They are digital stills sized as big as 1066x1600. There are no slide shows or zip files, but the pictures can be saved individually. And over at Studport you'll find another 6244 picture galleries with photos in a variety of sizes. The DVD scenes don't have picture galleries, although there are six decent-sized pics flanking each episode that give you an idea of the guys and the type of action.
Strong Men has added 17 new videos to the site during the month of October 2013, and there are still five days left before the end of the month. It's hard to give you a definitive update schedule because once the month is over, the detailed "updates" window starts over and the videos themselves aren't dated. They added 2 videos and 15 scenes from DVDs. They also added 36 video clips to their amateur site, Gay Hot, but these can range anywhere from a couple of minutes to five or so minutes.
The only real problem I had with Strong Men is how the site is organized. First, I'd prefer it if all the content was brought into one main site instead of having you bounce from one site to another. Second, when browsing the videos on Strong Men, you can only display 12 videos per page at a time, then you click a "next 12 videos," and there's no way to jump to a specific page number. The Strong Men member area also has a lot of ads. and some of those look like content. I don't mind ads as long as they're not designed to mislead the user.
Strong Men delivers a mix of muscle hunks in solo and hardcore gay action in downloadable DRM-free videos. The site offers frequent updates that include semi or exclusive videos plus several full DVD scenes every week. With bonus access to three other sites, with some nice variety of guys and action, you're getting access to over 3400 videos ranging from HD exclusive videos, DVD scenes, and lots of amateur video. While the site is a little heavy on ads and navigation could be a little better, overall watching the well-built men sucking cock and fucking got me turned on.
