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 2,448 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. The oldest videos, which were only offered at 480x360, don't look great enlarged to fit the player, but you can either shrink your browser or just enjoy these videos and keep in mind they were shot in 2001 and 2002. While streaming is fast to load, be aware that downloads are no longer included with your membership - more about that shortly.
Most of the 2,448 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 digital 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.
Now let's talk about what's new at Sean Cody. Downloads are back, but only if you pay $14.99 per month on top of the cost of your membership. I have mixed feelings about this. First, I like this extra subscription model better than having to pay for individual downloads or having no option to download the videos at all. But I wonder why the site doesn't just offer a more expensive streaming+downloads membership up front on the join page. In any event, if you don't mind paying extra, you can download the videos you like.
Let's talk about issues. First 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're exit the billing page back to the join page, but 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 2,448 exclusive videos can be streamed on your desktop or mobile and updates are added three times a week, and downloads are back if you don't mind paying for a second subscription to add them to your account. 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.
