Raunchy Bareback features condom-free action made up of hardcore scenes where 18 to 20-something guys fuck raw. Back when this site launched in 2008, bareback sex wasn't as popular as it is now, so it was considered raunchy. Hence the site's name, but these days, almost every gay porn site is offering raw sex, so I'd say that bareback fucking is commonplace or the new normal. Raunchy Bareback is a part of a network with 66 sites, so there are over 9,000 videos for you to enjoy, and some of these are also packed with raw action. It's been a long while since we reviewed this site (almost three years), so let's get back and see what's going on.
There's a mix of twinks from the UK, amateur Russian and Czech guys, some professional models in studio-made movie scenes, as well as some smooth, toned hunks. The emphasis, though, is on amateur performers, and these guys pull off their suck and fuck scenes well and naturally. The members area also gives you some Mexican hardcore and Latin studs, some college dudes in fuck sessions, and you're going to see some straight-looking guys in condomless action, as well. Driving all this variety along is a mix of cut and uncut cocks, hard and ready to drill any willing hole that comes their way.
The action at Raunchy Bareback is varied and there are no condoms in any of the scenes I watched. You'll find some interracial scenes, smooth twinks together, older men fucking rubber-free, some jocks and a few average-looking guys, but mainly we're looking at 18 to late 20s in this action. Some of the sex happens outdoors, there are Latino scenes and some British-made porn, too. A few uniformed guys get in on the action, as do office workers and college guys, so as you see, apart from the barebacking, these movies don't follow any specific theme, giving you lots of varied fantasies to get off to. A couple of the latest videos have BDSM themes with a couple of guys playing in a well-equipped playroom, another features two blindfolded guys getting fucked in a fourway, and a third scene sees a homeowner getting fucked by a masked intruder. But these fetish scenes aren't common.
The videos do tend to follow a similar pattern though; meet, strip, suck, fuck, cum-shot. Some start right off the bat with no build-up or storyline, while others have brief set-ups like two guys out walking in the woods, some conversation follows and then the kissing starts, but these set-ups tend to be really brief. The movies are not exclusive; I recognized several of these scenes having seen them on other sites and somewhat older DVD titles. For example, "Czech Hotel" is something of an old favorite.
There are 91 videos at Raunchy Bareback offered in MP4 format, and both streams and downloads come in two resolutions each; the medium resolution plays at 480x360 while the high one is at 640x480. Movies are average to fairly good amateur quality though some of the older productions do not survive too well at full screen. The movies can be streamed at full screen (but see note below) and downloading is simple; no file was that big even though these are full scenes of around 20 minutes. Some videos were not in English and were without subtitles. And both sizes should play on most mobiles.
The scenes come with galleries, and these are linked from the episode pages so are easy to find. Some of the picture sets contained digital stills sized at 667x1000 at good amateur quality with some posed shots from models as well as some action shots. Other sets offer screencaps at 640x480 with a little blurring on the action shots and not-so-wonderful quality, as is often the case with screencaps from older videos. Numbers of pics per set varies as does quality, and you can download full sets in zip files or you can save pictures individually if you prefer. There's no slideshow feature on the picture viewer, but there is a forward and back control to ease navigation.
Raunchy Bareback updates once or twice a month, although it updated three times in each of March and April of 2018. The site was previously struggling to maintain regular updates, but they seem to have snapped out of that. When we reviewed the site back in December 2015, there were 50 videos and now there are 91, so that's and increase of 41 videos over the past 34 months; there's an occasional month with no update when you go back to 2017 or before, but every month in 2018 has had at least one update.
You can't talk about this site without talking about bonuses. I counted 66 links to other sites and bonus video collections including Gaylife Network, Phoenixxx and Blake Mason. You can use the Videos dropdown in the menu to view all videos in which case you find over 9,000 listed. There is also a menu link for Photos with over 2,500 varied image sets, plus a model index with 2,643 models to browse. They are shown with stats, details, and links to their videos, so it's another neat way to browse for network content. Speaking of which, there are good search and sort options, a detailed search facility for scenes and guys, and some neat interactive options such
Let's talk about issues. There is a pre-checked offer on the billing page that, but it's easy to uncheck if you're not interested. Trial members get access only to the 12 "best" network scenes, which may not include any sample videos from this site. I got hit with a pop-up when I first arrived on the tour. There's a lot of advertising in the member area; of note is the very large ad on the top of every page, but you can turn these off by clicking the minus sign to the left of the words "Promotional Offers" on the left side of the page. The bottom of every page also has a couple rows of animated thumbs that are actually an ad for a live cam site.
There's one more thing I wanted to mention. There is a temporary glitch with watching the videos in full-screen mode in and or Chrome - the part of the player with the full-screen control disappears behind another page element. My editor ran into a different problem and was unable to expand the videos to full screen at all. But I have reported this to the site so hopefully they'll get it fixed.
Raunchy Bareback does deliver what they promise - 100% raw action - but the feels like a hit and miss compilation of bareback videos from various producers. On the other hand, the 91 videos can be streamed, downloaded and watched on most mobiles. To be honest, I've seen bigger, better, and hotter bareback action as well as sites with exclusive content, but this site lets you slip into a large network of 66 gay porn sites, some of which also carry more bareback action or HD videos.
