Next Door Buddies review updated on 23 Jun 2018
Next Door Buddies is the second oldest site in Next Door Entertainment's network, and it was one of the original straight guy sites where many of the guys were exploring gay sex for the first time. The performers were featured in side-by-side jacking sessions, first-time blowjobs or anal sex, even their first threeways, and there were a few solo masturbation scenes, too. These days, we're treated to some of the hottest hunks and fresh faces in the business sucking, fucking and blowing their wads in mostly duos, but occasionally threeways and foursomes, but they aren't the straight guys the site started off with. It's been a while since we visited Next Door Buddies, so let's drop in and take a look at what's new.
The site focuses on guy-next-door types, mostly well-built jocks and muscle hunks with athletic, gym-fit bodies. You can expect plenty of handsome guys with chiseled pecs, ripped abs, strong shoulders and arms and firm butts, and while the guys are certainly muscled, most aren't the size of competition bodybuilders, although some are quite built. There's a good mix of smooth and hairy bodies, men both bearded and clean shaven, as well as guys tattooed and not. And most of the performers here range from their twenties to their early thirties.
Next Door Buddies introduces us to newcomers and first-timers just breaking into the business and doing their first scenes, but they also have stable of exclusive performers like Arad, Mark Long, Johnny Torque and Markie More. And you'll find lots of your favorite porn hunks there, as well, including Connor Maguire, Brenner Bolton, Lucas Knight, Colt Rivers and Darius Ferdynand. Some of the newcomers come and go pretty quickly, appearing in a couple of videos and then disappearing, while others become mainstays on the site and go on to develop full-blow porn careers.
It's been a long time since Next Door Buddies released the kind of side-by-side jerking that put them on the map. These days the action is mostly duos with a few threesomes or fourways thrown in. The videos generally have uncomplicated story lines to get us into the action like the wedding planner who exacted sex out of the groom with the promise of a discount or the hunk putting the moves on a foreign-exchange student at the gym. And the action happens all over the Next Door mansion - living room, bedroom, and kitchen - and sometimes outside by the pool or in the garage; there's also a gym and public toilet set with gloryholes. A recent video had two guys at a train station eye each other, then one follows the other to his hotel where the sucking and fucking begin, so not all the action happens at the mansion.
A lot of the performers have excellent chemistry, so if they don't all seem like boyfriends, they at least feel like fuck buddies. There's plenty of kissing, eager blowjobs and face fucking, rimming and fucking from all sorts of angles. It looks like the cameramen really know what they're doing, too - the action is all caught well and the cumshots are shown in good quality closeups.
Next Door Buddies currently offers 679 episodes, and the site is still growing strong thanks to regular updates every Thursday like clockwork. The newest videos (most of which are over 30 minutes long) can be downloaded in seven sizes of MP4 with the biggest and best quality being a full HD version sized at 1920x1080 that look good and fill most monitors without enlarging. There are smaller sizes of new MP4s including at least several sizes that will work on iPhones, iPods and Android phones. The older releases don't carry all of the different sizes; the very first scenes only come in two sizes of MP4 with no HD versions but they will play on most mobiles. You can also stream the videos, the newest sized at 1180x640 and fare very in full-screen mode, the older videos are offered in smaller screen sizes.
Each video page comes with a nice juicy description of the action as well as linked categories and model names. There are also member comments and ratings. You can also save any video to favorites if you want to keep track of it to watch it again later.
There are also 657 photo sets featuring digital stills with newer pics displaying at 1280x1920 and older ones at 800x1200. Quality is mostly good amateur or better, although some of the oldest pics aren't quite as sharp and clear as they could be. But overall the pics show the guys to perfection with enough cock and ass closeups to make your mouth water. In the past this site hasn't offered slideshows or downloadable zips, but both are now standard features.
Next Door Buddies members also get some very nice perks. They get access to 16 bonus sites from the same network, mostly starring the same kind of guys in hardcore and jerkoff action. Not all of these sites update, but there are give new network releases per week in the network, and Next Door Buddies is one of the sites currently updating. Altogether the network offers members 3,308 videos plus a member forum.
Does the site have any issues? If you hit back from the billing page to the join page, a popup may appear - it has a bot that acts like a human rep on it, too. There's a pre-checked offer on the billing page, so you'll want to read that carefully and untick it if you're not interested. Trial members get only streaming access to the videos; if you want downloads, you might want to get a full membership. And when joining the site you are automatically signed up for the email list with no way to opt out at the time you join. The five oldest galleries are missing all their pictures, but there are still hundreds of sets to enjoy, and I didn't include the missing galleries in the picture count.
One last thing I wanted to mention is the notifications pop-up I got. It asks to sign you up to receive notifications from the site in your browser. If you have roommates, a significant other or someone else who uses your computer or if use your computer at work, I'd suggest blocking the notifications so that you don't have porn notifications pop up on your computer at inopportune times.
Next Door Buddies has a lot going for it from years of regular weekly updates and 589 exclusive videos full members can download, stream or watch on their mobiles to a healthy selection of bonus sites. But most of all, the guys here are everything I expected them to be - well-built, athletic and very horny. Some of the older videos are solos, but the newest videos are hardcore (and have been for a long time), so you can sit back and enjoy all the cock sucking, fucking, and loads of hot cum. The bonus sites offer more of the same types of guys in action. While the site does have a few issues, they don't interfere with enjoying the content. Next Door Buddies delivers hot all-American jocks and tattooed studs who love sucking dick and anal or jerking off on camera, and this is one site that keeps growing and getting better.
