When On the Hunt first opened several years ago they offered unscripted sex sessions between guys who met on Manhunt, the gay profile and hook-up site. In the early days these amateur sex sessions were filmed by gay porn stars and directors like Matthew Rush, Jeremy Hall, Collin O'Neal and Caesar; later videos were filmed by the site's producer. Before the guys got down to fucking, they'd spend some time talking about how they met and other details about their lives.
Since these are mostly real hook-ups, the types of guys you'll find here is quite varied. These are largely real amateurs who haven't filmed a porn video before. Think of it like this: What type of men would you see walking into your local gay bar or logging into Manhunt? A little of this and a little of that ... that's what you'll find at On the Hunt. Most of the guys tend to be in their twenties and thirties with average to athletic or muscular bodies. Some are average looking, some are quite hot; the guys are a mix of hairy and smooth, tall and short, cut and uncut, but there aren't a lot of older guys, bears or twinks. There's a good mix of white and Latin men and some black men.
As mentioned, the older videos here were often filmed by well-known gay porn stars, but this is not true of the more recent vids. And while many of these sessions are real amateur guys getting it on together, sometimes On the Hunt would bring in a gay porn star to help out. I watched one hot video where a guy named Jordan saw his long-time fantasy come true when his porn crush, Matthew Rush, fucked his ass. Poor Jordan is a nervous mess and a little embarrassed to be talking about how much he loves Rush with the hunk standing right there in the room. Rush puts him at ease with some passionate kissing and touching, then gives this stud the fuck he's been fantasizing about while watching Matthew Rush on his many porn videos. It's a hot fucking scene.
The thing I liked most about On the Hunt is that we're watching real guys doing all the things that turn them on. How many times can you watch a couple of porn stars fucking on a ladder? And how many of us actually do that or even want to? The sex here feels and looks natural, with lots of kissing, cock sucking, rimming, fucking, and even talking and laughing. Sometimes the guys bring dildos and sex toys into these sessions; Matthew Rush used a leather strap that slides around his bottom's neck and feet to hold his legs in the air. Most of these sessions feature duos, but there are a few threeways. There's also a good selection of bonus videos featuring guys jacking off, behind-the-scenes footage, and the porn star directors talking about the shoot. And from time to time, the site also features porn performers fucking each other or guys trying to break into the business.
All that being said, the latest videos are mostly solos that aren't actually On The Hunt productions. The company behind this site bought content from a producer by the name of Mike Hancock; he filmed straight jocks jacking off or getting off with other guys and featured them on his eponymous site which no longer exists. There's also other filler content filmed by Maverick Men, which is another site in this company's stable.
On the Hunt offers 549 episodes. The videos are available in three sizes of downloadable WMVs, three QuickTime versions and an M4V version that's compatible with mobile devices. The vids are 640x480 and the smallest are 320x240, but newest episodes have a larger version that plays at 960x720. Once downloaded to your computer, the videos play well with decent lighting and sound, although I found the WMVs were more crisp and colorful that the QuickTimes. The videos are generally over 25 minutes, and some are close to an hour. You can also stream the vids right on the site in a player sized at 410x310, and while a full-screen option is available, most of the videos don't fare well.
Each video displays eight pictures on the episode page; if you want to see the entire sets you have to download them in zip file. There are around 30 images per session, and they display from 450x600 to 600x800. You can also save individual photos if you prefer, but if you do you'll miss some that are only available in the zip files.
There is a bonus section with the feed versions of Jake Cruise and Treasure Island that gives you another 20 videos each. There are a number of links on the navbar that at first glance may appear to offer goodies to members, but the VOD, Cams, and Friends links all lead to paid properties, so if you want to use them you need to buy another membership, but you can poke around for free.
Now let's talk about the issues. On the Hunt has not added any new episodes in a number of years. But there's definitely enough content to keep members entertained for a month or two. And remember, while the site continues to call all the videos "hook ups", not all of them actually are; a few dozen are staged sessions and then there are the solos. The site had a blog at one time, but the link is now presenting an error.
On the Hunt filmed and updated consistently for four years, so there's a big archive of over 500 videos. I really enjoyed watching the way these horny regular guys hook up to suck and fuck. The sex is real and fun, the guys are turned on, there's no scripts, storylines or elaborate sets - just a couple of horny guys in a hotel room or bedroom playing around. That being said, the latest updates are mostly solo jerkoffs, a total departure from what the site was all about. I still like flipping through all the pages and checking out hot fresh faces and sexy guys, but sadly the site has stopped updating. Still, there's 549 videos to keep members busy, and On the Hunt is a great site to watch real guys doing all the things that get them off.
