Tickled Hard is a labor of love from a dominant bearded, tattooed Daddy named Franco Dax who really knows just how ticklish the male body can be. He puts guys in bondage, and once they're helpless, tickles their bellies, armpits, and the soles of their feet - just about anywhere the average person is ticklish. There's plenty of dominant and light-hearted tickling, not to mention the bondage and some cock stroking and sucking, and sometimes the guys jerk off after they've caught their breath. Franco really knows his way around a bondage table, and unlike some bondage and fetish sites, Franco keeps the sessions fun as well as sexy. As each tickling episode moves on, he strips a little more clothing from his victims till they're being tickled while totally naked, struggling against their bonds as they unwillingly laugh, shriek, and squirm. By the way, there are a few threesome and group tickle and bondage sessions that are definitely worth watching.
The guys here are mostly college age, from 18 to around 26 years old, but there are some daddies and a few sexy twinks as well. The site offers a mix of straight guys, amateurs, and gay-for-pay performers with fit bodies including slender, average, and athletic physiques as well as some who are on the muscular side. Some are clean-cut guys, some are tattooed or on the rough side, and there are a couple of black jocks in the mix. Most have never been tied up before or tickled professionally, and each responds a little differently, not only to the tickling, which becomes a matter of endurance, but also to being tied up and stripped or sucked by another guy. The action is fun and fresh and the videos make great watching for those who love seeing helpless guys stripped, bound, and tormented as they give up control of their bodies.
Tickled Hard opened their doors late in 2012 and has grown to 159 episodes, each with pics, video and a nice juicy description; the site adds a new update once a week. The big change is that downloadable videos are no longer included with membership; members get full streaming access but downloads cost extra. All videos are MP4s, the streaming shown at 890x500 at good amateur quality and I found they lost only a tiny bit of sharpness at full screen. The site says they're mobile-compatible. For those who decide to pay to download some of the videos, they're DRM-free, sized at 1280x720, also at good amateur quality, and will play on most newer mobiles.
While the photos are screencaps, they look good enough to pass for digital stills. They're sized at 960x540, and they're good amateur quality, as well lit as the videos and are almost certainly chosen and processed by hand. The pics show off the guys and the action very well, and there are 12 to over 25 photos of each session. Each gallery can be viewed as a hands-free slideshow, but disappointingly the pics are not offered in downloadable zip files; I was able to save some of the pics individually, although it wasn't easy to do and sometimes I wasn't able to at all.
I don't have many complaints about Tickled Hard. I was disappointed that downloads are no longer included for members; you must now use credits to download the videos, and while members do get a discount for downloadable videos, the lowest-priced package of credits is $29.95. Download speeds were only average at best, but since the videos aren't full HD, I didn't have to wait long for my downloads. My last complaint is that for the most part the guys' pages in the model index have minimal info; one only has his age, for example, another his age and shoe size, and the site owner has no info at all. Each performer does have a list of clickable tags, though, including things like big dicks, beards, straight guys, and tattoos.
Tickled Hard delivers hot guys (many straight) including well-built hunks, amateurs, rough guys, mature men, a few twinks, and a couple gay-for-pay performers being bound, stripped, and tickled by a dominant, tattooed and hairy daddy who really knows how to torment them with tickling. Some of the guys are not only tickled but get their cocks sucked or stroked or they jerk off. The tickling is done with fingers, feathers, brushes - whatever tickles the most sensitive parts of the body. There are 159 exclusive, DRM-free videos to stream (downloads available with credits), and the site adds a new video once a week. I think that fans of bondage and male tickling are going to really like Tickled Hard has to offer.
