"Muscles, masculinity and and hung studs" - that is what Handy Studs says they have to offer. The guys on the tour do, indeed, seem to have all of that. I recognize most of these hunky men because they are pornstars - straight pornstars. And unlike most straight guy sites, these guys make a living fucking girls - that's probably as straight as it gets. What's cool here is we get to see them go solo and stroke those famous porn cocks for us. Sound good? I sure think so! I'm off to the member area of Handy Studs to take a closer look.
The member area here is clean and easy to use. There are network navigation links across the top of the page, and on the right is a search box, although it searches the network, not just the site. Underneath are the videos, which you can search by scene or DVD title. Handy Studs offers 86 videos, which is 50 more than on our last visit, but has apparently only had a single update in the last year.
Before we get to the content, I want to talk about something I like about the site and something I think is just silly. What I like is the men. They are hunky "real men" types and they're all fucking hot. Also most are name pornstars - I found Anthony Hardwood, Deshaun Hayes, JR Langdon, Joey Ray, Herschell Savage and Tyler Knight inside Handy Studs. Now the silly part - whoever wrote the text descriptions doesn't seem to have a clue that these guys are pornstars or about much of anything. Too bad - I'd have loved to see real info about the models!
Each video is offered in several sizes and formats. The largest best quality options are the WMV full scenes. These are shown at 720x408 or 720x480 with a bitrate of around 2 Mbps, and they're pretty darn good for DVD rips that don't lose too much quality when watched at full screen. In addition, all the videos are offered in MP4 and sized for your cellphone or handheld device, and the newer vids are also offered in downloadable MPG's. For those who prefer to simply watch rather than download, each video is also offered in streaming Flash and shown at 720x408 at average porn quality or better. None of the videos use DRM, always a plus.
Each vid comes with a set of pics. These are vidcaps and can be browsed as a thumbnailed gallery or downloaded in a zip file. These pics are about the same size as the largest video, and are average quality for vidcaps, which mean expect some blurring and other issues. Still, they are a great way to preview each video, and for that they do a good job. And there are 2 - count them, 2 - sets of digital stills.
Full members of Handy Studs get access to the Gaystar Network - a total of 16 bonus sites, some of which update and some of which don't. The collection includes plenty of twink sites, a daddy site, a bisexual site plus Latinos, barebacking and amateurs. You can browse the bonus content by site, by video or by DVD title, and there are well over 1000 downloadable full scenes from 267 DVD titles.
The site does have a few issues. One I've already mentioned - only a single update in a year, and it was a month ago. Next is the pre-checked offer - also called a cross sale - that you'll find on the join page.
Handy Studs is offers 86 videos featuring straight pornstars with muscular physiques and hard cocks mostly jacking off for the camera. These videos combine several niches - straight guys, hunks and famous men in action, plus there are a few gay sex sessions. The best quality vids can be saved to enjoy again and again as the site uses no DRM, and there are streaming videos, as well. The catch - the site hasn't updated but once in a year, but on the upside, full members get access to a good sized collection of mostly gay bonus sites. If you want to see straight pornstars stroking their manmeat, and don't mind the lack of updates, why not check out the tour of Handy Studs!
