Studs Over 40 focuses on daddies, mature bears and muscle bears. The men are mostly mature and hairy, many with beards or salt and pepper hair; there's also lots of leather, tattoos and some shaved heads. The guys are unabashedly horny and I see some pornstars including Steve Hurley. None of the models here appear to be amateurs, and most are experienced older bears and daddies, rough and hairy, and they know exactly how to fuck a tight asshole, suck a big daddy dick and give a wet rimjob on camera.
There's a lot of heat in the site's original videos - the guys are real pigs who really are into the action and into each other. The newer videos have more older men with younger admirers in their 20s, and the very newest include a twink or two - or sometimes more. If you're into mature men who love older cocks or older/younger sex, most of the videos could hit the spot.
Studs Over 40 offers members 57 videos, 15 more than our last visit, but the site hasn't updated in a year. The videos are from 18 DVD titles, and are new and improved, though. The downloadable versions are offered in 2 sizes of MP4, the larger sized at 640x480, although some are actually letterboxed so the visual area is 640x360. These are good amateur quality, although they lose sharpness when enlarged to full screen. The smaller versions are for mobiles, and play on iPod, iPhone and many other devices. All videos are DRM-free full scenes, and each comes with a set of vidcaps that can be handy for previewing the action.
In addition to the vidcaps, the site offers 49 sets of pics. These are good amateur quality digital stills that are shown at 768x1024, and each set can be downloaded in a zip file where you'll find larger versions of the photos - 1200x1600. There are a good amount of closeups in each set I downloaded, and the watermarks are quite small and non-intrusive.
Since Studs Over 40 is part of the Gaystar Network, it isn't surprising that members get access to 12 more sites, mostly focused on twinks but some on hunks and one bi site, too. You can either browse the network by site, by video scene or you can browse by DVD. The site says there are currently 1311 videos. If you're into variety, there's definitely enough gay porn to keep you busy, but if you're looking for more older men, you will probably find the pickings here on the slim side.
Now let's talk about issues. First off, the site no longer updates, and the entire network stopped adding new content about 6 months ago. Next, trial members get only limited access to what the site and network have to offer, and trials recur at $10 more per month than the cost of the regular monthly memberships. When joining, you will find a pre-checked offer on the join page, so be sure and read it before you hit submit. And last is the site's changes of focus - first, the action is all older/older; then there are some older/younger and finally the last few episodes are twinks, and I'm not sure why those videos are there at all.
Studs Over 40 delivers a mix of hairy daddies fucking and sucking other older men, older/younger action plus a few jackoff sessions - and a few videos that are twink/twink. The site has 57 episodes, each with DRM-free downloadable videos including mobile versions. While there is a good collection of bonus material, little or none of it features bears of older men, and in fact a lot of it is twinks. If you're into hairy older men, daddies and bears, mature guys with younger guys, and don't mind smaller sites and the lack of updates, Studs Over 40 could be worth a closer look.
