The Casting Room is a tricked straight guy / porn audition site where the guys answer an ad to become performers in straight porn movies, but things don't go quite the way they expected. As part of their auditions, they're interviewed, examined, weighed and measured, and they are made to pose naked for the camera from just about every angle. There are some cock closeups, and these straight guys have to lean over and spread their cheeks, giving the camera (and us) nice views at their tight, virgin assholes. When it's finally time for their screen tests, each man shows us what he's made of as he gets his cock hard, then jerks off and shoots his load on camera.
Most of the straight guys are from the UK or parts of Europe, which means you'll find plenty of uncut cocks here. The examination parts of the episodes expose our porn star hopefuls in just about every way; they expose their soft, hooded cocks, hairy armpits, not to mention their assholes. They're humiliated, helpless and vulnerable. They were expecting to bone a hot chick, but it's a lot more embarrassing to stand by yourself and expose every inch of your naked flesh.
They're asked a series of questions about their sexual experiences. Have they had sex with women? With men? With women and men at the same time? How many? Have they ever gotten a blowjob from a guy or given one? The interviewer asks them about their turn-ons and other personal sexual questions. Then the guys have to do an Erection, Masturbation, Ejaculation Test – can they get a hard-on and cum on demand? For many of the guys, this is it - they shoot their loads and we never see them again. But some of the guys actually come back to do a second video where they do guy-on-guy gay sex sessions, sucking some dick or getting fucked on camera for pay.
The Casting Room now offers 1,174 videos, although a few of these are from other sites. The site adds four to six updates per month, each between three and ten days apart. Each episode is broken into three parts - the Interview, the Physical Examination, and the Erection, Masturbation, Ejaculation Test - and sometimes all three parts are added as a single update while sometimes they're added as separate updates. The new videos are offered for download in WMV and MP4 formats; the WMVs are sized at 960x544 and are sharp and clear, and they enlarge well. The MP4s are smaller, sized at 696x390, and looked good on my phone and tablet. The older videos are offered only in WMV format at 640x360 at good amateur quality, although these don't look as good at full screen. Newer vids are also available to stream at good amateur quality, and these play at 700x392.
Each episode comes with a set of pictures and as with the videos, the pic sets are broken up into three sections. These are surprisingly good quality screencaps (even the oldest ones from 2005 look pretty good) sized at 1200x675, and while there are no zip files or slideshows, they can be individually downloaded.
While the site doesn't have a bonus section, some of the updates are actually videos from other sites from the same producer. They tend to be of similar niches - humiliated males. In 2017, original productions slowed down quite a bit: In the first six months of the year, there were 13 videos produced for The Casting Room, as well as 14 videos come from a couple of other sites run by this company. And there are three videos from "The Fucking Room" where auditioned guys return to do full-on sex scenes with another man.
Does the site have any issues? First is the good-sized collection of ads on the bottom of the member home page, filling at least a third of the page; most of these are animated to catch the eye, and some could be mistaken for content, as well. Next, the tour states the videos have been "HD Since Jan 2005." Maybe they were shot in HD, but the older videos are delivered to members in standard definition only. The site exaggerates the number of videos, claiming there are 6,787 videos, but they count every video's format as a unique video even though they're the same scene. Then there's a $1.95 processing fee members must pay on top of the already rather steep monthly membership cost. It's worth mentioning that the videos all have the same name, so you'll want to remember to rename them or else you may overwrite the one you already saved.
There is one more issue, and it has to do with the watermarks on the pictures and videos. During the course of a video, the watermark will periodically change location, and this distracts from the action. In the pictures the watermark often intrudes by appearing across part of the model's body.
The Casting Room is all about straight guys tricked, exposed, examined in detail, and finally stroking their cocks to a climax on camera. The action is hot, the humiliation during the in-detail exams is exquisite, and most of the men here have uncut cocks with plenty of foreskin. Of the over 1,100 video updates, there are a few hardcore man-on-man episodes, but most of the action is solo. The site has been adding four to six videos per month for the past several months, although sometimes these are from other sites. The videos are good amateur quality, downloadable, DRM-free, and the newer vids are mobile compatible. The porn audition isn't a new theme, but The Casting Room executes it quite well, and in my opinion, does it the best.
