The name Kristen Bjorn has always been synonymous with gorgeous hunky men, and the producer has been filming men from around the world since the late '80s. In fact, at a time when most gay porn was an American affair, Kristen Bjorn took us onto the international scene. It's only been about a year since our last review, but I love the men here so much that I convinced my editor to let me take another peek.
Kristen Bjorn is packed with handsome European hunks who are sporting gym-fit to very muscular bodies. You'll find heaps of Spaniards, Italians, Eastern Europeans and others from the continent, but there's also lots of South Americans. You'll also find men from the U.S., Canada, Britain, and I even saw some men from Azerbaijan and Israel. And if you're a foreskin fan, this is uncut heaven. The Kristen Bjorn men of today are quite varied in their looks, so you can expect to find both clean shaven men and guys facial hair, as well as a mix of smooth and furry chests. Right now Spanish men are popular in porn, and there are plenty of them at Kristen Bjorn.
Web Series is where you'll find the videos produced for the site, and these 207 videos feature well-known porn stars like Craig Daniel, Hans Berlin, Viktor Rom, Letterio Amadeo, Max Toro and more. These are a mix of duos and heaps of threeways, and most are condom free. Casting Couch is the largest section in the site, and it's another web-only series where Kristen Bjorn auditions men who are new to the studio. Don't let the name fool you, these are not grainy screen test reels, but full-on productions in intimate home settings and usually featuring a newcomer with an established performer. You'll find 400 videos here that are mostly duos with condoms, although there are some raw sessions. The Makin' It section contains 274 behind-the-scene videos showing you how the movies are made, the director talking with the models, or other fun footage that didn't make in into the final cut.
There's plenty of passionate kissing, cock sucking, rimming and fucking in any position you can imagine, but the Kristen Bjorn sex scene is not only about men having a hot time, but showing off their muscular bodies. You'll drool over ripped abs, hard asses and powerful thighs as much as over the deep-throat blowjobs and holes getting seriously pounded.
The 1,421 exclusive, DRM-free videos are downloadable and are offered in MP4 format in a wide range of sizes depending on the scene's age. Newer releases come in four sizes from 640x360 (good for older mobiles) to 1920x1080 while older videos playback at 320x240 and 640x480 (there are a few other sizes here and there). The quality of each scene depends on the age of the film, the newer videos offered at good amateur quality or better, but even the oldest videos are quite watchable. Most the videos can be streamed at 960x540 in an embedded player at multiple qualities, but some of the older videos are stretched and lose sharpness and clarity, and the very oldest videos won't stream, but you can still download them in two sizes.
Most of the videos come with picture sets featuring high-quality glamour shots of the models and hardcore action. There's also a separate Galleries section offering 349 Solo Model Layouts and 145 Group Model Layouts from 36 DVD titles, and these two sections contain both carefully posed and well lit digital stills. Movie Stills offers 275 sets from 66 DVDs (action shots), and the last secction is Behind the Scenes (candid and unposed) with 37 pic sets. The pictures come in too many different sizes to cover - everything from 400x600 to 1365x2048 - but what's important is that they offer slideshows and downloadable zip files, and the enlarged pictures are resized to fit in your browser window, so some may be larger when you download them.
There's a member forum where you can make suggestions or ask questions. Kristen Bjorn actually responds quite frequently, and not only does he answer questions but he chats with his members. There are also 658 model profiles with briefs stats - height, weight, dick size, nationality and sexual position - along with a listing of each hunk's DVD and web appearances. You'll also find 63 interviews in the Model section. And last are 146 streaming bonus videos from studios including Titan Men, Falcon, Lucas Kazan and more.
Now let's talk about updates. While the updates are not dated, the site has added 271 videos in the past year, an average of around 22 new videos added per month. While the tour mentions that the site adds "New Condom Free scenes weekly", it doesn't mention how often the Casting or Movie Scenes sections update, but the site has grown a lot, so I'm pretty happy overall.
I did run into some issues. First, members are limited to ten video downloads per day, up from three on our last visit, although streaming is unlimited. The trial membership recurs at $10 more than the recurring monthly membership. There's a pre-checked email offer on the join page in very fine print right under the form where you create your username and password. The oldest videos can't stream; when I tried to play several of them, I got this message: Error loading media: File could not be played. And it appears that the Casting Couch video section is no longer updating. And while not an issue exactly, not all the Group Model Layouts picture sets are actually groups.
I ran into one more thing that could be an issue or not. When loading the model profiles, you have two options. You can load them all on a single loooong page with over 600 listings by clicking LOAD MORE on the bottom of the page every time you get there. If you prefer, you can click "Paginate", and then the profiles will be listed on multiple pages with 16 per page. The catch with this is that it doesn't load all the profiles, just 11 pages of them, so if you want to browse all the performers, your only option is to load that long page I talked about.
Kristen Bjorn's men are among my favorites in gay porn. I love European men and uncut cocks, so I'm really at home here. And while there's nothing wrong with American porn, it's nice to jump over to Europe to see some fresh faces or ones that are new to me. These masculine hunks have beautiful bodies without being too overdone. I like the Casting Couch section best because it features a lot of newcomers and the sex is more natural, but pretty much everything at Kristen Bjorn is hot. The site has added 271 videos in the past 12 months, so they're continuing to deliver multiple weekly updates. And with 1,421 videos to download, stream and watch on your mobiles including brand new scenes and ones from over a decade ago, there's lots to entertain you and keep you turned on.
