Tickled Hard is a labor of love from a bearded, tattooed daddy named Franco Dax who really knows just how ticklish the male body can be. He puts guys in bondage, and once they're helpless, he tickles their bellies, armpits and feet - just about anywhere the average person is ticklish. There's plenty of dominant and light hearted tickling, and some cock stroking and sucking, and sometimes the guys jerk off after they've caught their breath. Franco really knows his way around a bondage table, but he keeps the sessions fun and sexy. As each tickling episode moves on, he strips a little more clothing from his victims till they're being tickled while totally naked, struggling against their bonds as they laugh, shriek, and squirm. By the way, there are a few threesome and group tickle and bondage sessions that are definitely worth watching.
The guys here are mostly college age, from 18 to around 26 years old, but there are some daddies and a few sexy twinks, as well. The site offers a mix of straight guys, amateurs, and gay-for-pay performers with fit bodies including slender, average and athletic physiques as well as some who are on the muscular side. Some are clean-cut guys, others are tattooed or on the rough side, and there are also 16 black jocks and 32 Latin guys in the mix. Most of the guys here have never been tied up before or tickled professionally, and each responds a little differently, not only to the tickling, which becomes a matter of endurance, but also to being tied up and stripped or sucked by another guy. The action is fun and fresh and the videos make great watching for those who love seeing helpless guys stripped, bound and tormented as they give up control of their bodies.
Tickled Hard opened their doors late in 2012 and has grown to 224 episodes, each with pics, video and a nice juicy description, and the site adds an update every week. All videos are streaming MP4s shown at 890x500 at good amateur quality, and I found they lost only a tiny bit of sharpness at full screen. For those who decide to pay to download some of the videos, they're DRM-free, sized at 1280x720 (also at good amateur quality) and will play on most newer mobiles.
While the photos are screencaps, they look good enough to pass for digital stills. They're sized at 960x540 at good amateur quality, as well lit as the videos, and are almost certainly chosen and processed by hand. The pics show off the guys and the action very well and there are 12 to over 25 photos from each session. Each gallery can be viewed as a hands-free slideshow, but disappointingly the pics are not offered in downloadable zip files. A couple of technical notes about the galleries: first, when you land on an episode's page you'll only see six pictures initially, you have to click the "view more" button to expose the full gallery; second, to save pictures you need to right-click and save link as on the thumbnail not the enlarged picture.
Before we go futher, let's cover the membership and pay per view options here. You can opt for a monthly streaming membership that will allow you to watch whatever you want or you can buy tokens and surf the site à la carte, if you will, redeeming the tokens to watch or download only the scenes you want. If you have the streaming membership, you'll still have to buy a selection of tokens if you want to download any of the scenes you want to keep, and as a member the token price is discounted.
I don't have many complaints about Tickled Hard. I was disappointed that downloads aren't included for members, but this isn't anything new or unusual in Pornland these days. Download speeds were average, but since the videos aren't full HD, I didn't have to wait long for my downloads. My last complaint is that the model profile pages really only contain stats detailing a guy's age, shoe size, height, weight, cut or uncut, and their sexual position, i.e. top, bottom or versatile. And some guys are missing some attributes. As most guys only appear once on the site, there's only a full write-up about them and their session on the episode page, so these profile pages look a little sparse.
There's a Live Men option with a NEW flag on the navigation bar and if you click this you'll be whisked off to a third-party webcam site where you'll have to pay to see anything hardcore.
Tickled Hard delivers hot guys (many straight) including well-built hunks, amateurs, rough guys, mature men, a few twinks and a couple gay-for-pay performers being bound, stripped and tickled by a dominant, tattooed and hairy daddy who really knows how to torment them with tickling. Some of the guys are not only tickled but get their cocks sucked or stroked or they jerk off. The tickling is done with fingers, feathers, brushes - whatever tickles the most sensitive parts of the body. There are 224 exclusive, DRM-free videos to stream (downloads available with credits), and the site adds a new video once a week. I think that fans of bondage and male tickling are going to really like Tickled Hard has to offer.
