UniversBlack is one of 20 sites in a larger network of theaters run by a French company called Studio Presse, and this one brings us hot and horny black men playing together as well as solos and some interracial action. There were only eight sites in this network when we last reviewed UniversBlack nearly three years ago, so there's been some changes and plenty of growth. I'd say it's time to head over for a fresh look.
UniversBlack produces some of its own movies, but the theater also brings together content filmed by EbonyD, Cadinot, JNRC, PitBull, Monster Bang, Flava Men, Next Door Studios and others, so they offer a varied collection. The guys themselves are a mix of fit, athletic and muscular guys in their twenties, some maybe some in their early thirties, and each studio has its own flavor of men. Some of the guys are a little on the thug side with do-rags, ball caps and baggy clothes, while others are more muscular gym hunks, and still others are just regular hot and horny men with slim bodies. There are lots of big dicks and plenty of mouths and asses to take care of them. As well, you'll find amateurs and first-timers side by side in productions featuring well-known performers like Kamrum, Cutler X, Race Cooper and others.
While there's lots of black-on-black action, interracial sex fans with be happy here. These studs mix it up with white guys and Latinos; sometimes the black guys are doing the fucking and other times they bottom. And if you like gangbangs, there are around 230 group action videos, too. But it's not all hardcore as there are around 175 solo jack-off videos. The action happens just about anywhere you can imagine from cozy bedrooms to warehouses and dirty basements.
There are 1,227 videos inside UniversBlack; 98 of these are produced by the studio itself while the rest comes from the other studios featured here. Not all the videos are available for download, but one that I did purchase was in MP4 format and played at 960x540. Be advised that there may be smaller sizes in the older inventory of movies. Most of the content can only be streamed, and these vids play around 770x576. The site has a good streaming system and the videos played smoothly without a lot of machinations with buffering, and I easily jumped back and forth in the scenes. Viewing the videos at full screen had varying results - some were okay, but others suffered from some loss of quality; regardless, I was pretty happy using their standard player.
There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why some videos can be downloaded and others can't, but I think it has to do with the arrangements each studio made with Studio Presse. UniversBlack is a video site, but each scene provides you with a gallery of five or six medium-sized, good amateur quality screencaps that give you a sense of the guys and action.
UniversBlack isn't just a typical membership site; you can buy packages of tickets that cost from $5.00 for 5 tickets to $50.00 for 100 tickets. Then each scene costs you a number of tickets to watch (usually four) and you can watch it as many times as you like for a 24-hour period. Downloads generally cost six tickets and your tickets don't expire, so you can use them as you want, and they're valid on any of the network's 20 sites.
Fairly new here is an unlimited streaming membership that lets you watch whatever you want, but you'd have to buy extra coupons if there's anything you wanted to download. I'd be inclined to go for the monthly streaming membership because it allows you do the research to see what scenes you'd actually like to add to your permanent collection; then with your list in hand, you could buy the appropriate number of tickets. If you're not a collector, the streaming may be all you need, while if you're only a casual porn consumer, the tickets may make more sense.
UniversBlack doesn't date its videos, so I can't say how often they update. But when we reviewed the site nearly three years ago there were 816 videos, 32 months later there are 1,227, so they've added 411 videos, which averages 13 a month. All told, the entire network adds about 80 videos a month.
Are there any issues? The tour's claim of 10,000 videos can't be verified. While there are thousands of videos, a single scene can appear multiple times in the network's 20 theaters. Still, there's a lot to watch here. It'd be nice if all videos could be streamed or downloaded, but that's not the case. And as I mentioned, some of the videos could use work when it comes to quality.
I was pretty happy with UniversBlack. The men are sexy with mostly well-defined, athletic bodies and lots of big cocks, both cut and uncut. Likewise, I found the action offered a good selection between solos, duos, threeways and small groups. Since our last review, Studio Presse has upgraded both its servers providing a better viewing experience and they have almost tripled the number of theaters. UniversBlack itself has 1,227 videos, having added over 400 videos in the past nearly three years, and they've added a few new studios to their roster, so that's pretty good growth.
