Review date: August 2015
Over the years, Dirty Boy Video has greatly improved its video quality while becoming less edgy and alternative. With the latest redesign the site has made some radical changes, jettisoning hundreds of older videos, discontinuing downloads and representing previously published content as new. There are also many upsells to other porn sites, toy stores and cam sites.
The tour of the redesigned site begins with a series of large, rotating images highlighting recent episodes (though many were originally published years ago). Click on any one of these as it slides by and an explicit clip will play. Scroll down the page for more images opening to explicit clips - all of episodes shot in the last three years or so. But once you get deeper into the video index you'll only get the teaser image: click and you're taken to the join page. One big omission on the tour is that it is not clear at all that it is a streaming only site.
Navigation through the site is quite straightforward. Buttons at the top of each page will take you to the Movies, the Categories, the Video Feeds and the Favorites. The videos are presented with the most recent first, and the 60 different categories are a good way to select your favorite type of guy or activity. All the previous odd labels and niches for different types of activity are gone, and that's a good thing. You can also sort the videos for most recent, most popular, and name/title.
The Men and the Action
The "dirty" boys are mostly slender guys between 18 and 28. They range from cute to average, and from college-type guys to more alternative types with tattoos, piercings, floppy hair and cool stubble. All of the more recent videos are quite conventional in the type and range of sex acts, but a few of the older ones include several unusual themes such as jerking off in public places like parking garages and stairwells, sex under surveillance cams, frat house highjinks, and doll fuckers. Each theme is pretty well-captured. Most of the audition videos include a brief interview and a solo jerkoff. Around one third of all the videos are solo.
The drastically reduced video count now consists of larger videos that are definitely higher quality, due to better cameras, though the frame still jiggles and sways around a little more than we like and once in a while the lighting is wanting.
At review time there are more than 226 exclusive videos, all of which were shot since 2010. As we explained, the site has lopped off more than 400 of its lower quality videos from the olden days. Updates appear to be weekly, but many are actually older content that has been recycled.
Sadly, Dirty Boy Video decided to take away the ability for members to download, so now you can only stream Flash videos in an embedded player. The video will resize with your window as well as toggle to full screen.
Screens: The redesign of the site is now responsive, fully optimized for tablets and phones.
Image and Other Content
Photo galleries are now matched to the corresponding videos. The digital images are good quality and average sized, with 20 to 25 per set.
There are a number of video feeds with familiar names such as Sex Gaymes, Club Jeremy Hall, On The Hunt, Falcon TV, Treasure Island and nine more. It is unusual that the site highlights these nonexclusive video feed updates so prominently at the top of the page.
New York City based Dirty Boy Video offers good quality videos and improved content organization, while continuing to feature sexy, natural, young amateurs enjoying solo and hardcore sex. But while the site has great personality, the wild experiment that Dirty Boy Video used to be has now become quite predictable. More importantly, the removal of downloads and the recycling of older content, gives consumers less bang for their buck.
