Broke Straight Boys review updated on 5 Feb 2019
Broke Straight Boys is a gay-for-pay porn site that started shooting in 2006, and this site has a split personality. Straight guys (and some with bi tendencies) in their twenties through thirty switch teams for an afternoon of carnal romping or in solo shoots to pay their bills. The guys here run the gamut from boy next door to "bad boy" to bistro waiter, and you'll find a mix of scruffy and well-groomed guys, as well as some with tattoos and a few with interesting piercings. Body types range from slender twinks to middle-weight wrestlers with lots of average guys and athletic jocks. Cock sizes vary, and some are nice and big. And while the guys in the older content look distinctly amateur and sometimes a little rough around the edges, the performers in the newer episodes have a more polished look to them.
In the older videos, many of the guys do appear to be both straight and inexperienced, and they're sometimes in need of convincing (in the form of a handful of cash or fast talking) to get them to do more. These are intimate videos where the director does his best to convince the guys to push their sexual limits for cash - or returning guys who decided this is a great way to make some extra money. The older episodes sometimes try to trick the straight guys, telling them they'll get paid $100 to jerk off on camera and often convincing them for another $100 to let another guy suck their dicks and so on. The camera work and lighting are less than studio pro work, but the action is hot, and at least some of the supposed first-timers do appear to be the real deal.
The newer scenes are quite a contrast to the older. Many of the guys could pass for models or porn stars, and they look less like amateurs. They're still mostly from 18 through their twenties, range from slim to athletic, some with tattoos or facial hair, but they don't have that amateur look. There are still some first-timers, but a lot of the guys in the newer episodes appear in six or more scenes - Jos Alvarez, for example, appears in 28 videos - and may be found on other sites, as well. The photography and lighting is more professional, and there's no director offering guys cash; in most of the new scenes, the two guys sit on a bed together, chat for a few minutes and then get down to business, sucking, fucking and shooting their loads. And they certainly don't seem to need any convincing as most of them suck dick like a pro.
In the latest episode, featuring Benjamin Dover and a supposedly nervous Derek Cline, it's a matter of seconds before the guys start making out passionately and feeling each other up. There's no camera shyness here, either. Even in Derek's first video - a solo from a little over a month ago - he's very comfortable on camera. And Charles Owens is another guy who's supposedly nervous; he did his first solo two months ago, but he sucks a fat nine inch cock without hesitation, bobbing his head up and down and even deep throating it before taking it up his supposedly inexperienced ass with enthusiasm as he yells "Oh, oh, oh!" while stroking his own meat.
There are now 1,748 episodes inside Broke Straight Boys, and the site continues to add three updates each week - usually on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The newer videos are presented in three sizes of MP4s, the largest 1280x720 at good amateur quality, the smallest sized good for older mobiles. The oldest videos are available in WMV and MP4 at 480x360 plus a smaller version for mobiles (although the larger version is already on the small side for most phones). The oldest vids are below average quality for the most part. All the videos are available to stream, although I wouldn't recommend enlarging the older ones as they are already stretched far too large to fit the player and don't look too good.
Each of the videos comes with a set of pics. The newer are sized at 600x900 at good amateur quality or better - the newest are sharp, clear and well-lit. The older pics at either 900x1200 at fairly good amateur quality or 640x480 (these are screencaps) at low to so-so quality. While there are no slideshows, picture sets can be downloaded as zip files or you can easily save just the individual photos you want.
Member extras includes 275 behind-the-scenes and interview videos including candid looks at the models and staff in public locations, i.e. pride festivals, beaches and other gay events. Members also get access to a network of three bonus sites. One, College Boy Physicals, focuses sex with doctors or nurses and offers over 600 videos and weekly updates. Straight Boys Jerk Off no longer updates but has a collection of exclusive videos of amateurs stroking their meat. And the last is HS Boys, which is a portal offering 50+ bonus feeds. There are also a couple forums, and the one called the Membership Chat Forum talks about Broke Straight Boys, the models and more, and is actually pretty busy.
Now let's talk about issues. There's a pre-checked offer on the billing page that, if left checked, will sign you up for a second recurring site membership, and if you're signing up for the one-year membership, the pre-checked offer is for a full year of another site costing an additional $79.87 for the year. Also on the billing page, you'll find an unchecked offer that looks like site terms you'll need to agree to, but if you read it more carefully, it will sign you up for membership to another subscription website. There's still a pop-over on the tour for a special offer. There's two rows of large ads on the member home page, but these are easy to avoid. Also be aware that the "Links" section is all ads and the BSB Live link leads to a third party site and require payment for action or full nudity.
There are some tour claims to examine. Despite the claim of "Unlimited Access", the site limits full members to 15 downloads per day, a reasonable amount but not unlimited. The tour also says the site offers "4+ Updates Per Week", but there are three updates added each week. Even on weeks where there's a behind-the-scenes update, it adds up to four updates, not four plus, and there was only one BTS video added last month, four the month before and one the month previous. The tour says there are four bonus sites, but there are three. The site offers "Full HD Video", but HD downloads are one size down from full HD, and the older vids aren't HD at all. And that leads me to one more claim - "Over 1,850+ Exclusive Scenes". True, but only if you count the behind-the-scenes videos, which aren't actually scenes.
Broke Straight Boys is a hybrid gay-for-pay / hardcore gay sex site featuring guys (some straight and some not-so-straight) willing to perform with other men (and solo) in exchange for cash. There's a wide variety of models who never fail to give it the old college try in 1,748 exclusive videos to download, stream and watch on your mobiles. I'm happy to report that the site is still adding three full updates every week and offers a plethora of extras for those who want more. What I liked most about Broke Straight Boys are the amateur (and sometimes scruffy) straight guys (and some not-so-straight guys) in the older videos going all the way for cash, the over large collection of videos, and I love those frequent updates.
