Review date: May 2016
Dirty Tony brings you a variety of well-built amateurs age 18 to 50. The guys come across as very natural (with their cumshots captured from two angles in many of the videos), and there are many more duos and groups than there used to be. Only the newest videos are in HD, but the viewing quality of all the Flash streams is very good. When signing up, watch out for a pre-checked box for a membership to another site on the sign-up page. And unfortunately the frequency of updates has slipped from weekly to biweekly.
The top-quality Dirty Tony tour gives you a free explicit preview clip of at least 60 seconds for every video on the site. The clips are accompanied by Tony's juicy paragraphs about how he found the guys, and his observations on the shoot. Just click on "Free Tour" and "Video Previews", then you can page through the video inventory and look at all the clips you want.
The five most recent episodes are highlighted on the homepage, along with a full text description. You can page through the episodes, five per page, or skip to a particular month in the Archives. The individual episode page has the two video options and thumbnails for the image gallery. One odd thing is that on this page the age, height, weight and orientation of the models is provided, but they are all lumped together, so if there are 4 models you get 4 ages, 4 heights etc. It would be much better to list each model along with his stats separately.
In the left column, there's a "Categories" function so you can select videos by age, orientation, physical attributes and the type of action. But there's no model index on the site, not even live links to a guy's other videos when you're on a video page. Finally, there are upsells in the members area: there is an ad in the left sidebar of most pages for "Sexcams", and there are upsells to other membership sites at the bottom of some video pages.
The Men and the Action
Tony has an eye for handsome, masculine amateur guys. Some of these trim dudes are smooth; others have a bit of facial and body hair, and there are some tats and piercings. Almost all of the episodes are shot indoors, and there are about twice as many solo shows as hardcore episodes. The guys range in age from 18 - 50 and there are jerkoffs, hand jobs, blowjobs, fucking, toys, and tons of creamy facials. Tony does like the facials, every year he does a composite video of all the best ones from that year, with names like "Tony's Famous 39 Cumshots" and "20 Loads".
Tony gets great performances because he has a way of making these porn newbies really comfortable. At the start of each of the solo videos the guys sit on a couch and answer questions about themselves and their sex life. In older videos, these hot masculine guys seemed less spontaneous. But in the last couple of years, the guys are much more relaxed, and they're quite happy to just get naked. Similar types of guys are paired up and the chemistry is usually excellent.
All the Flash streams look very good at the native size of 640x360 pixels. For downloads the more recent half (a few which are HD) look quite good too. Older Windows Media and Quicktime downloads are inconsistent in their viewing quality.
Most of the videos on Dirty Tony have a very good level of light and sound quality. And the camera work is more skilled with each passing year, with the last 375 the most sophisticated. The camera work on the older videos is a bit uninspired, with unnecessary brief screen blackouts between cuts. These days, the videos feature a creative range of camera angles, and improved editing. Overall, Dirty Tony makes these guys look very natural by using a range of medium and close-up shots, poses, and angles.
There are 726 exclusive video episodes with an average running time of 20 minutes. The update schedule is about once every two weeks. And there are no download restrictions, so you can download any video and keep it as long as you like.
The videos on this site can be streamed in an embedded Flash player or downloaded in Windows Media and either MP4 or Quicktime (MOV); videos are offered in only one size choice per format.
The Flash streams are 640x360 and can be upsized to full-screen.
About 10% of Windows Media and MP4 downloads are HD (either 1920x1080 or 1280x720 pixels, 2,000 kpbs); about half are just 640x360 with a bitrate of 1,000 kbps. The oldest half drop down to 780 kbps or less.
Screens: Most of the videos will play on an iPhone, but the site design is for full-screen viewing. Only videos shot in the past couple of years have the specs for viewing on a large screen TV.
Image and Other Content
There are 726 digital photo galleries of Tony's guys -- and these definitely capture their lean, sexy qualities in high quality, medium-sized images. These can also be downloaded as zip files.
Dirty Tony has a great touch, attracting hot amateurs, treating them well, and shooting them expertly. While most of the older performances are solos it's great to see that many more of the videos in the past four years are hardcore. All the Flash streams are quite good quality -- as are the more recent half of the downloads. However most videos would still benefit from an upgrade and the addition of a model index would be a big help too.
