Sean Cody review updated on 14 Aug 2018
Sean Cody is one of the powerhouses among internet gay porn producers. For years it features web-only productions, attractive amateur models including the best amateur models you'll find on any site as well as high quality production values. The newest videos feature some guys who could be models or porn regulars, but I must say they're still hot. There are over 1,000 names listed in the model menu and they often add new models. The original guys are mainly straight, from 18 to their early 30s, college or jock types with not too many tattoos. Almost none have appeared on other sites before, although some appear on other sites afterward. Some of the newer guys are definitely neither straight nor collegiate, but there are plenty who got my attention.
Many of the models back a few years did solos only, but a lot more of the guys are doing action scenes these days, and since 2011 those action scenes sometimes include barebacking.
Solos used to begin with some non-sex footage outdoors, often on the beaches near San Diego or showing the model (or sometimes models) playing various sports. They then continue indoors, usually comprising two sequences with a cumshot at the end of each. The new solos start with an interview and things progress from there. Most action scenes take place indoors; there are occasional threesomes and a few large groups, but duos predominate. Sucking, rimming and fucking are all on the menu. The guys generally do well, and popular guys may appear on the site repeatedly. The sucking and fucking are caught at a wide variety of angles thanks to really good camera work, and the scenes feature sizzling action.
Many of the guys have smooth or lightly hairy chests, muscular and ripped. Cock sizes are all over the map, although there are definitely some good-sized ones. And while the models from years ago tended to be clean-shaven, some of the guys now have trim facial hair that accentuate their good looks - some, like Daniel, are gorgeous and handsome while others, like Manny, are really cute. And that's not to say that there are some regular guy types to be found - there are plenty for you guy-next-door lovers.
Sean Cody now offers 832 exclusive videos, and they're adding three new videos per week every Monday, Thursday and Saturday. The updates generally alternate; there's usually two action scenes and one solo scene added each week. The solo episodes includes a little info about the model - age, where he's from or other things about him. Or sometimes they work out or shoot a few hoops outdoor before things get started.
The videos are offered to stream in DRM-free MP4 format. They can be viewed in a player sized that resizes to fit your screen - the vids showed on my monitor at about 1660x880, and the newest highest resolution videos are very good quality and enlarge to full screen well. There are also several lower res versions that are good for smaller screen mobiles. The older videos are shown in the same size of player, and they're good amateur quality but the highest resolution still loses just a bit of quality enlarged. While streaming is fast to load, be aware that downloads are no longer included with your membership.
While 832 videos is a very decent amount, there's a major issue with the video updates that I don't want to wait for the issues section to bring up. Sean Cody lists 2,429 videos yet the site only has 832 of them available to watch. That's because 1,597 of the oldest videos - more than half the listed updates - are missing. All that you see is a pic in the player (usually) with the words over it "ERROR: Video Content Not Found". Since there are no downloads, that means members don't get access to almost two thirds of the videos. All the videos from before July 19, 2013 are missing, so that's over 10 years of missing videos.
Interestingly, most of the 2,429 listed updates do include a picture set. The newer pics are sized at 1080x720 at very good quality, so it's hard to know whether they're digtital stills or screencaps; they are all horizontal. Older sets may contain either digital stills sized at 480x720 or screencaps at 579x326 or 450x306 at good amateur quality. The pics can saved individually, and you can navigate from pic to pic easily enough, but there are no slideshows or zip sets.
Let's talk about issues beside the missing videos. Downloads are now only available if you are a current member whose membership started before December 1, 2017; disappointingly new members and those who have cancelled their memberships and rejoined will have to pay to download individual videos. Next is the pre-selected offer on the drop-down menu on top of the billing page; make sure to change the drop-down to "No thanks, I'm not interested by this special offer" if you prefer not be be signed up for a second recurring site membership when you join this site. Trial members may get limited access; it's not mentioned on the terms page but it was the case last visit. With over 2,300 updates listed, members can only navigate a few pages back or forward at a time. And there's a pop-up when you enter the tour, although I found it pretty easy to close.
One last thing I want to address is the full page ad you land on when you first log into the site. It looks like a network home page, but all the sites listed you must join to enter. There's a link on the right on a green background that says "CONTINUE TO SEAN CODY", and beneath it is a box you can tick if you don't want to keep logging into the full page ad when you log in.
Sean Cody still offers hot amateur jocks in exclusive, very hot videos and pic sets. Production standards are high, and some of the hot, well-built guys featured are genuinely new faces. The 832 videos can be streamed on your desktop or mobile and updates are added three times a week. Sean Cody continues to offer some very hot and well-built amateurs and hunks producing bucket-loads of cream in hot solo and hardcore action for your pleasure.
