The producer of Southern Strokes was located in the rural Southern United States, and he filmed horny first-timers stroking their cocks on camera and explore guy-on-guy sex. He stopped filming new content a few years ago but continued to maintain the site. Recently it was purchased by another company, so it's time to check what's happening with this site.
The guys range from 18 to their late twenties, and they have great physiques from slender and athletic to ripped and muscular, so you can expect plenty of well-built, good-looking guys. They're at the prime of their sexuality, oozing with horniness and testosterone and willing to explore their urges. The majority of the guys are true amateurs, but many of them went on to have careers in the business. Some of them may have gotten their start here, a few others may have been passed off as amateurs.
The performers are a mix of straight, gay and bi-curious, and many of them truly are having their first guy-on-guy sexual experiences. Each solo video opens with a short interview that lets us meet the guys and hear a little about how they came to be filming at Southern Strokes. One of my favorites is Connor, a stocky, blond 21-year-old who just had his first sexual experience with a guy six months before he made his video. He was going to school and plans to become a doctor. He was at a party, got a little drunk and ended up relaxing on a bed with another guy. He says they kind of just looked at each other and it happened. They started kissing, then they swapped blowjobs and shot their loads.
The duo videos start off with the guys kissing and touching - they seem to be into each other and the experience - and then move to sucking each other's cocks, doing some rimming, and fucking in a variety of positions before the guys each cum. The action didn't feel faked to me, and it's always hot to see guys who are really turned on. And that's how it generally goes on this amateur guy site. These jocks and studs arrive at the site and usually start off with a jerk-off video; then if they're into it, they explore guy-on-guy sex. These Southern hotties are often a little shy and tentative at first, but as the filming goes on they can be quite expressive, adventurous and even downright wild.
All 381 Southern Strokes videos are offered in MP4 format. (The site used to offer WMVs, but like so many others, they've abandoned the format.) They're available to download in two sizes - 640x360 and 960x540 - and these are amateur productions with good sound and lighting. You can also stream the videos (also in two speeds), but this site uses an adaptive player, which means that those 960x540 videos will be stretched to fit the player and the size will depend on your device and screen size. I have a 26-inch monitor so they played at 1580x848, and the enlarging comes at a cost in quality; the videos are pretty fuzzy, but on smaller screens, including smaller computer monitors, most phones and tablets, they should play fine.
Each episode also comes with a set of pictures. These are good amateur quality digital stills that are shown in thumbnail galleries on the same pages as their corresponding videos. You can now save the pictures individually (you couldn't before), and there are downloadable zip files, too. The pictures are sized at 960x640 and they show off the guys and the action well. Unfortunately there's no slideshow feature here.
Members do get some extras. Your membership now also includes the feed versions of 15 bonus sites from this company's network of sites and each offers you 12 videos. I don't know if these update or not, but they do give members 180 more videos to watch.
The site is no longer filming new content, which is disappointing. They recycle content by re-dating it and bringing it to the front so the site appears to be updating, but it isn't really. The owners of the site added a dozen videos from some of their other sites, and while more content is generally a good thing, in this case they've chosen videos featuring muscle bears and daddies, and these stand out like a sore thumb amid all the jocks and twenty-something studs. They haven't added one of these scenes in four months, so maybe it was an experiment that didn't pass the test.
There are a couple of other things to warn you about. There is a pre-checked offer on the billing page; if you don't opt out, which is easy enough, it'll sign you up for a membership to a second site when you join Southern Strokes. There are two monthly memberships, and one costs $7 more than the other, so you'll want to be sure to select the less expensive one. There are a couple banners in the middle of the member home page, but they aren't a real problem as they're obviously ads and are easy to scroll past. Despite the lack of updates, there's definitely enough to keep you entertained for 30 days.
Southern Strokes delivers hot and horny amateur guys, most of whom you won't have seen anywhere else, and I like that a lot. Most of these Southern guys are the real deal - amateur guys who haven't done gay porn before and many truly are having their first gay sex on camera. Most of them are pretty good-looking with sexy athletic bodies; some are regular guys, some are hot jocks, and with 381 videos on hand, you won't have trouble finding heaps of guys to turn you on. Despite the lack of new content, there's enough videos to keep members busy for a month or two; I really like the site and I still recommend Southern Strokes.
