We reviewed Twinks in Shorts when it launched in April 2016 as a fairly new site that brought together content from a couple of European sites that were being discontinued. We reviewed it again earlier this year, and the site had been updating weekly and had a redesign, but we've heard that there've been some changes, so it's time to head back to see what's going on.
The term twink has evolved to mean any slim and smooth guy in his early twenties, and that's largely the case here. So while there are some twinks with smooth, slender bodies, you can expect to find some older guys in their mid-twenties or early thirties with a mix of physiques from well defined to muscular. The performers are largely Eastern European - Czechs, Slovaks, and Hungarians - so you'll find plenty of uncut dick here. There are a lot of well-known gay performers like Paul Fresh, Ennio Guardi, Trent Tarzan, Martin Polnak, Yuri Adamov, Zac Hood, Thomas Fiaty and Danny Montero, to name a few, but you'll find plenty of fresh faces and newcomers, as well.
There's lots of blowjob action here, and sometimes that's where things end with guys getting sucked until they jizz. But there's fucking, too - just not in every scene, and it's all bareback. The latest update offers a threeway in Speedos horsing around by the pool till the Speedos come off, the guys end up in the pool and from there we end up with the guys sucking each other, trading rimjobs and fucking; at one point, two of the three guys take cock in their asses. In another recent video, two hunky guys take turns washing each others' bodies outdoors with soapy water, then trade blowjobs before one takes the other's raw dick in a hot fuck session. The earlier scenes are a hodgepodge of solo jack-off videos and regular suck and fuck action without any particular theme.
The first time I saw the site, the question I asked myself is "I see some twinks but where are the shorts?" Of the recent updates, only two have guys in shorts (well, one is a set of swimming trunks), but there are several with guys in underwear - briefs, actually - which are sort of shorts-like, and one that features two guys who are not twinks and they're wearing jeans. In fact, I'd say that at least half the recent guys aren't twinks and more than half aren't wearing shorts. Go figure.
Most of the action is in duos, but there are 16 scenes with threeways or small groups of four or five guys. There are a handful of outdoor sex scenes, but otherwise the guys play around on a massage table set up in a bedroom or living room and there are a few hot tub scenes. The performers seem to really enjoy each other with lots of kissing, sucking, rimming, and fucking, and the cameras provide a good amount of clear, well-lit cock-in-hole close-ups. These horny guys blow their loads on their bottom's asses, bellies or right into their mouths.
Twinks in Shorts now offers 202 videos, and there are two changes - the videos are now offered for download as well as streaming and updates have been increased to two per week. The videos are MP4s, and downloads are offered at 1920x1080 plus two smaller sizes compatible with most mobiles (the smallest should play on most older phones). Newer videos are good amateur quality or better, older look good but sometimes the motion is a little odd. Overall I like them. The videos can also be streamed in an adaptive player, which means it resizes to fit your screen, and the streaming vids are offered in three qualities. They play well; they look good and are sharp and clear. There is a full-screen option and the videos fare pretty well, but some may experience a bit of quality loss.
Each of the videos come with a gallery of around 15 or more digital stills at the bottom of each episode's page, and most of the models have a set of solo pics as well. All the pics are good quality digital stills sized at a whopping 1600x2400. There are downloadable zip files, and you can save the pics individually; while there's a forward and back control, there's no hands-free slideshow option.
A new extra has been added since our last visit. Members now get access to 57 videos from a site called Southern Strokes that offers up horny amateurs from the Southern U.S. These are a mix of solos and hardcore, and the videos can be downloaded as well as streamed. Members also get access to the feed versions of 13 bonus sites fthat each features 12 to 14 streaming videos. It's not full access, but it's a nice sampling. Half these bonus sites offer a mix of young Euro guys in their twenties, both twinks and jocks, and the other half feature mature men and bears, so there's a little something for everyone.
Most of the issues we talked about on our last review have been dealt with, but there are a couple things worth mentioning. First, neither the join nor the billing page mention if the yearly membership recurs or whether it's a one-time charge. The models' pages don't include profiles or any info, just links to each guy's videos and pictures. There's no way to view only the pictures or only the videos; the pic and video updates are mixed together, which makes the site seem bigger than it is. Also models from Twinks in Shorts or Southern Strokes; you can only view them mixed together. And I find the site's layout and cluttered with lots of repetition of scenes on every page. For instance, on every model's page, below his videos, you'll find other sections like Hottest Massages, Hottest Twinks or Outdoor Sex showing you unrelated videos from the site.
And one last thing I wanted to mention is the whole twinks and shorts thing. There are very few shoots with guys wearing actual shorts unless you consider men's briefs to be shorts. And maybe half the models are twinks; you'll find plenty of muscle hunks, a few guys who could be over thirty and a number who are neither cute nor boyish. There are even a couple guys who have a few extra pounds on them. But you can check all the performers out on the tour to decide if they turn you on.
Twinks in Shorts offers European guys in underwear (or occasionally shorts) getting massages, running or hanging out and horsing around, sucking cock and giving rimshots, and there's lots of bareback fucking, too. The site has grown to offer 202 videos to download, stream and watch on your mobile, and updates have doubled to twice each week. Some of the guys now are twink-like, but you can expect to find jocks and muscle hunks here, too. And members get access to a bonus site plus 13 feeds. If you're looking for European twinks, hunks and more guys with uncut cocks in dick sucking, solo stroking and bareback fucking action, Twinks in Shorts is worth checking out.
