Young Bastards is not a new site, but they have just recently redesigned and relaunched as a membership site. They used to operate using a ticket system where users bought and used coupons to watch movies, and downloads were not available, but all that's changed. There are some nice bonuses, so let's get started.
The performers at Young Bastards are mostly guys in their early to late twenties, but there are a few who are older. The guys are sporting mostly smooth and slender or athletic bodies; some have more defined physiques, but none are what I'd really call muscular. The guys are Europeans from Britain, France, Germany, Eastern Europe, and perhaps a few from Spain, so your eyes will be feasting on lots of uncut dicks, and some are quite large.
The guys themselves are quite varied in their looks, so you'll find sweet-faced lads alongside bad boys, skinheads, scallies, chavs, and other rough-looking types. Some of the videos come from a couple of other studios, and these are where you'll find the older guys in their thirties, many with hairy bodies. The cast is a mix of both first-timers and up-and-comers along with established performers like Skylar Blu, Jordan Fox, Kai Cruz, JP Dubois, Luke Pascoe, Moskito, Luke Desmond, and others.
You'd expect guys on a site called Young Bastards to be a little nasty, wouldn't you? And they are. The site's tagline is "Live Fast - Fuck Hard." There's a lot of rough action including two guys force feeding a bottom their dicks before taking turns on his ass. Jordan Fox plays a prison guard who thinks the inmates are there for his pleasure, so he brings them to his private chamber for sessions involving immobilization, CBT, spitting, harsh nipple play, beating and whipping, and of course lots of dick sucking and fucking. I saw scenes with cock pumping, dildo sex and fisting, piss play, bondage and glory hole sex; some guys were forced to work out before servicing their masters, and there was some dirty foot play with guys worshiping sweaty socks, sneakers, and bare feet.
There's plenty of sucking and fucking here, and the sex is a mix of bareback and condom, although most of the older scenes tend to be with condoms. And while there are bedroom and living room scenes, most of the action happens in dirty basements, warehouses, abandoned buildings, dungeons, and playrooms. Some of the guys are restrained, but many aren't and there's a good mix of both duos and threeways as well as a few small groups.
There are currently 131 videos inside Young Bastards, and they're offered in MP4 format. The newest scenes can be downloaded in three different sizes: 640x360, 960x540 and an HD version at 1280x720. The older scenes only come in two sizes at 640x480 and 960x720. These are full scenes and are usually good quality. You can also stream the videos at either 720x540 (older) or 960x540 (newer), and they come in two or three resolutions that improve the picture quality as you go with the higher resolutions. You can use full-screen mode, and the newer and high-quality scenes fare best here.
I didn't check every scene at Young Bastards, but most seemed to have a picture gallery featuring either digital stills or screencaps. I found the pics were sized at at 640x960 or 667x1000, but there may be other sizes as well. Each gallery offered anywhere from six to 30+ pictures, and you can download a zip file, save the pics individually or enjoy them in a hands-free slideshow.
Not all of the videos here are produced by Young Bastards. I saw a good number of scenes from Kallamacka, which features many of the same types of guys, and Dark Cruising, which generally features older guys and hairy men. The latest 34 videos are from Young Bastard itself, and before that they are mostly from the other two studios. The scenes provide good descriptions and linked model names when they appear in multiple videos. And on the videos homepage there's a "Filter Videos" option where you can sort the videos using a few pre-selected categories like outdoor sex or barebacking and several others, you can also sort by types of guys like twinks or skinheads and punks or body types like skinny and hairy, but there's no free-form search.
Young Bastards is now a membership site, so they've dispensed with the old ticket system they were using, but there are two types of memberships available. You can buy an unlimited streaming membership that will let you watch as many videos as you like, but you can't download anything. The other membership is unlimited streaming with unlimited downloads as well, and this one also include a bonus DVD download that you can select from the offers from five European producers. While there are several dozen DVDs you choose from, you are entitled to one download a month. Also there are 16 third-party video feeds included with your membership, and these are from well-known producers like Raging Stallion, Falcon, Jake Cruise, and others offering you content ranging from jocks to bears.
The videos are now dated (they weren't before), and the site has been reliably updating once a week for a while now. There was a skipped updating at the beginning of the year, but since then it's been smooth sailing. There aren't any other concerns, however; just be certain that you purchase the right kind of membership, i.e. streaming only or streaming with downloads.
There have been quite a few improvements in Young Bastards since we last reviewed it three years ago. The biggest is that they're now a membership site and offer a couple of different options like streaming only or streaming plus downloads. They've also tripled the inventory and improved the sizes of the videos, and the site adds a new video every Thursday. Gone are those pesky tickets. And the site has maintained its theme of bringing us uncut Euro guys, skinheads, and bad boys in rough sex and piss action. Young Bastards pads their offering with videos from two other kinky studios, giving you lots to watch, and I'd say that their membership site is off to a good start.
