Bentley Race is a hot Australian guy who got into the business as a genuine amateur. Back in 1999 a friend of Ben's, which is what his friends call him, took some nude photos of himself and Ben, and he put them online. The pictures got a lot of positive feedback, and he started adding more galleries and soon there were over 100 of them. At this point, Ben started to photograph and film some of his buddies, and when he got more experience both in front of and behind the camera, he launched Bentley Race. Nowadays it's a well-known amateur site that offers hot Australian and European guys in solo and hardcore action. It's been a couple of years since we last reviewed the site, so let's freshen things up.
The performers are good-looking guys ranging from 18 and into their thirties. Some are straight, some are gay, and they're all horny, enjoy exposing themselves and having fun on camera. Most are hot amateurs from Australia, but Ben travels to Europe a lot and the U.S. less frequently, and he always brings his camera, so there's a nice collection of European and American men, as well. There are lots of well-hung studs here with uncut cocks, and quite a few of the guys are straight and curious about filming porn or exploring action with another guy.
The models are a mix of nearly twinks to hairy hunks with lots of jock types. Most of them sport slim or athletic bodies, but others are quite muscular and most are smooth, although there are some hairy guys, too. Likewise, the guys are a mix of clean shaven and bearded. Ben has a penchant for athletic gear and skateboarders, so he often gets his models wearing shorts, swim suits, muscle tees, jockstraps or singlets along with knee-high athletic socks and sneakers. Many guys also hold skateboards or soccer balls or other sports gear.
While most of the guys are amateurs at the time they do their shoots for the site, many do repeat performances on the site, so they're like mini porn stars for Bentley Race. One sexy guy named Skippy Baxter went on to sign an exclusive contract with a major American studio, and you'll recognize other performers from the past like Harry Louis, Tate Ryder and Andy Lee.
There is an almost even split between solo and hardcore videos here. In the 399 solos the guys talk with Ben and play with their cocks; there's quite a bit of Fleshlight and dildo action, too. Ben has a fetish for outdoor nudity and often takes the guys to the roof of his building to shoot some photos. He also often gets in on some of the action with the guys sucking his cock or offering their asses to him, but it's all seems very spur of the moment. There are 378 duos with the guys sucking and fucking in home and hotel settings. There are also a few kinky videos involving pissing and light bondage.
Bentley Race offers 807 exclusive videos. The newest are MP4s that can be downloaded and streamed. They play at 720x404 and 1280x720, and they're good amateur quality with decent lighting and sound; you can enlarge the vids to full screen without losing too much quality. However a few videos are only offered for mobiles, which is the smaller of the two sizes. All of the videos from 2011 forward are offered only in MP4 format; before that the sessions are offered in two sizes of WMV (720x404 and 540x303) and one MP4 (720x404), and the very oldest videos are WMVs only and offered at a small 360x288. Each scene includes a short description of the action and usually a story about how Ben met the model or other information about him.
The FAQs mention a re-encoding project that is standardizing the video sizes and enlarging those older scenes, and Ben says the project is about 90% done. I look forward to seeing the oldest videos larger and in MP4 format so they can be watched on mobiles.
There are also 1,093 picture sets, and these are standalone updates; in other words, the pics are not shot simultaneously while videos were being recorded. Most of these are solo sets and each contains between 40 and 100 photos. They're laid out in thumbnail galleries with the portrait and landscape pics separated into their own sections on the page. The newer photos are good amateur quality with a lot of close-ups and display at 750x1125, older pics are smaller at 450x600. You view the pictures in galleries and you can save them individually, but there's no hands-free slideshow option. Downloadable zip files are available.
There's also a behind-the-scenes section with 445 videos showing Ben photographing the guys, talking to them or giving them direction. There's a members forum where you can talk directly to Ben or other members. There's a blog as well with previews, which is also accessible to non-members.
I only have a couple of complaintse. The first is a technical issue with the dropdown menu at the top of the member homepage. There's a "Browse the Collection" feature where you're supposed to be able to sort all the videos into each of the sub-categories like solo, outdoors, pissing, duo or group, and while this mostly works, it doesn't always. For instance, clicking the pissing and outdoor sections got me no results even though there are 29 and 28 videos tagged in each of these respective sections.
The Bentley Race FAQ says the site updates at least four times a week, but these updates aren't all full episodes; they can be any combination of videos, picture sets and behind-the-scenes videos. While the site is upfront that it "alternates between gallery and video updates", some clarification would be helpful. In March 2018 there were four videos and seven photo galleries added, and there were also eight behind-the-scenes videos, which are mostly just videos taken during the photo shoots. Just checking the past three months, the site has added four jack-off or hardcore sex videos monthly, so consider the rest a bonus.
Bentley Race is an amateur site with a nice-sized collection of masturbation and gay sex videos and lots of picture sets starring hot guys with good-sized uncut cocks. The performers are mostly Australian amateurs, but you will also find some Europeans and Americans, as well as some famous porn stars and Ben himself. The site updates weekly with a new exclusive video as well as picture galleries and behind-the-scenes videos. The site has a lot of personality with Ben talking about how the guys came to appear on his site. Bentley Race is a great place to see Aussie amateurs and it remains one of my favorites.
