Butch Dixon launched a little over seven years ago with some of the hottest hairy European men and muscle bears you'll find anywhere. The site has recently undergone a redesign; they're also in the middle of a video remastering project and they have added some new bonus features, so let's jump inside and see take a closer look at what's new.
Butch Dixon men are masculine, usually hairy, and range from their mid-twenties to forties. You'll find lots of facial hair and furry bodies and quite a few tattoos on well-built men with gym-built physiques. The bulk of the men are European, although the odd American flies over to film, but you'll be treated to heaps of foreskin. Most of the men are gay porn regulars like Jessy Ares, Viktor Rom, Martin Mazza, Gaston Croupier and plenty of lesser-known Spanish hunks. In the early videos you'll find lots of porn performers who have left the business, men like Harley Everett, Issac Jones, Carlo Cox and Samuel Colt. But Butch Dixon also introduces us to newcomers who are just breaking into the business or simply fulfilling a fantasy of making a gay porn video. The site also commissions scenes from an Eastern European production company, so you can also expect to see Czech and Hungarian men popping up occasionally.
The site still films jack-off videos, but not as many as they did previously. Still, you can expect to see a new hunk spilling his cum for the cameras every few weeks, sometimes with the help of a sex toy. These usually come with a chat session where we learn a bit about the performer and what turns him on. But the bulk of the videos are duos that feature men kissing, sucking, rimming, and fucking both bareback and with condoms. The newer videos generally jump right into the action, but older sessions often have a brief storyline to get us into the action like a sex toy store owner catching a customer trying to steal a dildo or an office worker accidentally texting his boss a picture of his ass. So nothing complicated, just a bit of fun to get us into the main event. Most of the action happens in homelike settings, but Butch Dixon does sometimes venture out to bars, sex clubs and warehouses. There are a number of threesomes.
There are 425 videos, which is an increase of 90 since our last review 18 months ago. They're offered in MP4 format and newer scenes come in four sizes; 640x360, 960x540 as well as two HD versions at 1280x720 and 1920x1080. They're good amateur productions. Older scenes are offered in three sizes, not quite as large as the newer ones but still good. You can also stream the videos and they're offered at three different speeds and play at 720x540 to 960x540 depending on the age. They're generally well lit and good quality and play smoothly, and even in full screen mode they look pretty decent. Older videos hold up pretty well in full-screen mode, too.
Butch Dixon offers 986 photo galleries -- 795 solo and 191 action -- featuring large, good quality digital stills shown at 683x1024. These are good-sized galleries featuring 50 to over 200 pics per set. You can browse the pics in the galleries or enjoy them as hands-free slideshows. And when you find a set you like, you can download the entire thing as a zip file. You can save pictures individually, too.
Members get access to an assortment of 12 gay porn feeds, each with 20 videos, featuring twink sex, bears, hunks, bareback sex and more. Recently Butch Dixon began offering bonus videos from its five partner sites; Young Bastards, Spritzz, French Lads, UK Naked Men and Raw Fuck. They offer three streaming videos from each producer and a new one swaps in every day. You'll also get a monthly DVD download from one of these studios and two others, as well - UK Hot Jocks and Euro Boy XXX.
Butch Dixon started a video remastering project in October 2016, and they're re-encoding the older videos. But this is both good and bad news. While it's great getting improved quality and screen sizes on the older scenes, the site is bringing them to the front of the member area and releasing them as updates. In October there were four new scenes and two remastered, in November there were two of each, and in December they released three remastered and two new scenes.
While the site is easy to use, be aware of is that there are two offers on the billing page that will sign you up to other sites, and one of these is pre-checked. It's also near the bottom of the page and might be easy to miss. The site has a download limit for members - 10 gig every 12 hours - so this may affect power users. Also the billing page offers a "Huge Bonus Program", but while there are some extras, it's far from a huge amount, and the billing page also offers full HD videos, but the older videos are standard def, not HD.
Butch Dixon focuses on furry men, muscle bears and hairy daddies with lots of uncut cocks, but the site gets a bit of a mixed review from me. The video remastering project has the site resting on its laurels and relying on re-encoded older videos to fill part of the update roster. While there are 425 videos to download, stream and watch on your mobiles, for the past two months they have only released two new videos a month and the others are remastered older scenes. But there's a selection of 12 third-party video plugins and 15 streaming videos offered from five partner sites as well as a DVD download from one of seven producers. The new design is user friendly and easy to navigate, but Butch Dixon's main strength is its sexy, hairy men; you'll want to head over and check them out.
