Michael Lucas started producing gay porn videos in 1998 and his site, Lucas Entertainment, features videos and pictures from his 19 years of filming. Lucas is well-known for his lavish and big-budget videos filmed in exotic locations that bring together the sexiest men from around the world. We last reviewed Lucas Entertainment recently, but the site has grown quite a bit and made a couple changes, so it's time to head back for another look.
The men of Lucas Entertainment are among some of the hottest in gay porn. While Lucas does film lots of American performers, he's constantly bringing us fresh faces from Europe and South America and is responsible for turning virtual unknowns into industry superstars. Lucas has a stable of exclusive performers who you won't find anywhere else like heavily inked Dylan James and Sergeant Miles, handsome Ukranian hunk Stas Landon, hung Brit Josh Rider, and Latin hunks Drae Axtell and Ibrahim Moreno. But almost everyone in Pornland makes his way to Lucas Entertainment eventually, if he's hot enough.
The men of Lucas Entertainment are quite often handsome with toned, athletic or rock-hard muscular bodies. There's a mix of clean-shaven and bearded men, as well as both smooth and hairy hunks. You'll find quite a few tattooed men, but lots with no ink at all. And Lucas Entertainment features men from all over the world so you'll find European hunks, South American men, black men, Israeli men, and of course, many American favorites. There are lots of big dicks here, many of which are uncut.
Sex is sex, isn't it? Well, sort of. And Lucas Entertainment has all the standards: kissing, dick sucking, rimming, fucking, plus lots of facial cumshots. But where this site stands out is in the truly passionate sex where these men are sucking and fucking. Back in September 2013, Michael Lucas shocked the industry when he released his first bareback video. Lucas had always been staunchly opposed to condomless sex, but since then he's been filming nothing but bareback sex. In fact, a number of his stable of condom regulars performers left when the studio went raw including Sean Xavier who, this month, is bringing his 11-inch cock back to make his bareback debut.
Most of the videos are filmed indoors in hotel suites and homes, but a few take the action outside with men fucking in backyards, on patio decks, by the pool or on the beach. And usually once every couple of weeks there's a big gangbang of five, six, or seven men fucking raw. Lucas Entertainment does still occasionally fly cast and crew to exotic locations like their recent trip to Greece and last year they filmed in Berlin. But most of the filming happens in the United States. The sex is often passionate with long, lingering kissing scenes, but just as likely to be rough and nasty with lots of throat-fucking and hard ass pounding, and where the bareback action is concerned, you can expect lots of cock-in-hole close-ups and dirty cum eating or guys cumming on butt holes and fucking their loads back inside.
Lucas Entertainment now offers 1,510 mostly exclusive videos thanks to twice a week updates (on Mondays and Fridays) with their own exclusive scenes, plus a third update most weeks with a scene from Kristen Bjorn. Good news is that members now get unlimited downloadable videos. They're available in MP4 format with the newer vids sized at 1280x720 and the older at 655x480. Each video is offered for download in a single size but in two quality levels. The newer high-quality videos are sharp and clear and enlarge well; the older are good amateur quality and only losing a little quality when enlarged to full screen.
The videos are also offered in streaming MP4 format and play as big as 1292x726 in the streaming player, although older ones do play smaller. The newest videos are good quality offered in HD, standard and mobile versions, and even at full screen they didn't lose much sharpness. The older videos are fine, but lack the crispness and clarity of the newer vids. The videos play well on a true streaming server, so I had no buffering issues; the sound is good and there's no DRM in use here. The vids worked fine on my phone, as well.
By the way, it's very important to note the way that downloads work now. You must click the "Download Scene FREE" button under the player and the scene is added to your library for seven days and gives you the option to download the standard or HD version, when available. After seven days, the video disappears from your library, but you are free to add it to your library again if you didn't get a chance to download it.
Lucas Entertainment also offers picture sets. Each new scene features a gallery of good quality digital stills sized at 733x1100 and these are sharp, clear and show off the men to perfection. Older scenes have pics that are around 600x900 and they aren't as good as the newer ones, although they're still decent. Some DVDs have only a handful of production stills, others have over forty, and in some cases the gallery will have a few pics from each scene but in a single gallery. Most of the 900+ Lucas models also have a gallery, although the oldest are just a couple pics.
Lucas Entertainment is fairly well organized. The Movies section shows all of the DVDs and clicking inside will give you all available scenes, the description, a gallery and member comments. You'll also find performer pictures linked to more of their work. The Lucas Men section details the 900+ men on the site and most have stats and a bio with a write-up, then a listing of all their scenes on the site.
With the Scenes section, the site has started doing something new that I didn't care for. They load up all the published scenes as well as future coming-soon scenes. So you'll get excited by the preview video only to be told "Please come back on September 12 to download or unlock this scene." And these aren't always new scenes either, as in the case of the four best-of scenes on the upcoming "Tomas Brand Collection" DVD. Unfortunately there's no way to filter out these soon-to-be-released scenes. But once a scene has been released everything is right there on the page: a description, the stars, a photo gallery, and other related scenes from the same DVD.
Lucas Entertainment offers a couple of their other sites as bonuses - Lucas Raunch and Sex in Suits - as well as a blog that updates weekly. Lucas Raunch offers pig sex, pissing and more filthy fun while Sex in Suits focuses on hot hunks in suits and office sex fantasies. Neither site adds new content, but there's plenty to check out. There's also a members forum where you can post comments on your favorite scenes. There's a blog as well that updates regularly. Some blog posts are basically update info but there's also other stuff to read. There's a free wallpaper archive, but the site hasn't added anything since 2014.
The main problem that I have is that pages load slowly; it can take as long as five seconds, which is an eternity when your dick is throbbing. I had no problems watching or downloading videos, but navigating from page to page on the site can be an exercise in patience. I'm happy downloads are now unlimited; just remember you only have a week to download your video choices. And the non-recurring monthly membership costs $10 more per month than the recurring version. One last thing worth mentioning is that when you join, you're automatically signed up for the email list, and there's no way to opt out at the time you join.
Lucas Entertainment is a great site with some of the hottest hunks working in gay porn, many truly gorgeous men with sexy bodies and big dicks. Mr. Lucas doesn't film as many huge budget blockbusters in exotic locations as he used to, but there are some plus all the ones from years gone by. The site has grown since our visit last year, now offering 1,510 videos to download, stream, and watch on your mobile. There are two weekly updates plus you get bonus access to Sex in Suits and Lucas Raunch. If you're new to the site you'll get lost in their huge library of content, but their navigation, search and sorting abilities mostly make it easy to find more of your favorite performers and type of sex. And with their international line-up of performers, Lucas Entertainment has a lot to offer.
