Pat and Sam has been around for years, and it was one of the first true amateur member sites we reviewed. The guys in their videos aren't porn stars, and many were obviously doing their first porn shoot - although there are plenty of guys who come back to do more shoots, and I'm sure a few have gone on to do porn for other sites. The site is old-school, with no frills or bells and whistles, but personally I focus on all those amateur guys jacking off - and the occasional guy-guy blowjob session.
There is variety when it comes to the models here; expect them to vary from horny twink boys to muscular military men, average guys to somewhat mature amateurs. There are slender guys and well-built men, tattooed models and some who are more clean-cut. These aren't porn stars - they're guys who have day jobs and had a fantasy about making a porn video, so they're very turned on during the shoots. There's also probably some porn stars wannabes trying to break into the business, which you expect on sites like this. And I felt the interactions and interviews where the camera man talks with the models is well handled and adds to the videos.
Pat and Sam offers almost 200 exclusive videos, but the site no longer updates. The videos are offered in WMV format, and are on the small side, sized at 320x240 at amateur quality - there's also a lower bandwidth version available. The vids are DRM-free and downloadable, and if you prefer to watch rather than download, you can just click them and they should play in your browser, but don't expect to be able to go full screen without a noticeable loss of quality.
Some of the pic sets here contain screencaps, others offer digital stills. The digital stills are mostly shown at 400x534, which is a smallish medium size, and the screencaps are shown at 640x480. Both screencaps and digital stills are amateur quality - some good amateur quality. No slideshows or zip files are offered, however you can download your favorite pics by right clicking and saving as.
Now let's talk issues. First off is the lack of updates, as already mentioned, but it's also worth mentioning that we've tried to contact the owners of this site repeatedly, and they have not responded. It's possible members get responses, but we have no way to know. Another challenge is that those who want to join by credit card can only do so using their JCB, Discover or Maestro cards - the site doesn't accept Visa or Mastercard, the two most used cards. There are also lots of links here leading to DVDs for sale including some that aren't obvious.
Pat and Sam has some things going for it - we like the hot amateur models, exclusive content and the 180+ DRM-free videos are downloadable. That being said, the site stopped updating some time ago, which is disappointing. Also the videos are small by today's standards and the quality doesn't allow for enlarging without losing sharpness and clarity. Still, there's something very organic about the Pat and Sam shoots - the camera guy (possibly Pat or Sam) is not a pro, but does a pretty good job. Pat and Sam delivers the kind of guys and content those looking for real amateurs like to see, however the smaller size of the videos might detract for some people from the overall experience.
