Review date: February 2016
You Love Jack is a sexy storehouse of cute young amateur guys who happen to haul around some damn big dicks. The owners of the handsome faces and sweet, always spreadable asses are a mix of slender, mostly white guys, age 19 to 25. In 240 very good quality, predominantly solo videos, these hotties settle in, work a toy or a couple of fingers up their butt, and fire off powerful loads in sessions that have a similar sequence -- but always deliver heat and authenticity. The shooting style takes a little getting used to, as this is supposed to be "self-made porn," but it does grow on you.
While almost 40% of the videos are available as high-definition downloads, the oldest ones could use remastering. You also need to be aware of the slow pace of updates on this site: in the past year updates have come in at an average of less than one a month, for a total of nine.
When you start on the non-members homepage of YLJ you'll find a slideshow of images of recent models. Just below these larger images you'll find four more good sized still shots of the models on the site. These give you a good sense of what these guys look like - and some of what they get up to. Lower on the page are more images that form the beginning of the entire episode index. But this tour is not generous. There are no video preview clips, and you quickly learn that clicking on what looks like an embedded video preview is just going to take you to the sign-up page.
Navigation through the members' area is totally simple. On the homepage, "This Week's Update" is the first to greet you. Just scroll down a bit and you'll find "More You Love Jack Videos," where there are additional recent updates. The bottom right hand corner of this image grid takes you to the next page of updates - and so on, back through the entire inventory.
The Men and the Action
The models on You Love Jack land solidly in the 19- to 24-year-old group. These attractive guys are either smooth or have a bit of body hair, along with some very ample-sized dicks. There is a bit of information for each model, and an amusing description of their video session. The videos are mostly solo performances, though there are a few duo and group videos, too.
The scenes unfold in a way that is quite mesmerizing, starting with the guy sitting fully clothed on a couch or chair. Looking at these masculine young faces and profiles sets the stage for them to gradually get naked and reveal their tight bodies. A signature feature of the videos is that about half way through the guys lift their legs and play with their own cute puckers, usually sliding fingers, a butt plug or dildo in and out till they're at the brink of shooting. Another signature, that we don't quite get, is that many of the guys wear a black t-shirt through most, sometimes all, of their scene.
You Love Jack started off with the gimmick of "self-made-porn." The concept is still there, but you don't see the guy fiddling with the camera; instead there is a blackout of a fraction of a second between shots that gives you the idea that he's gotten out of his position, moved the camera and then started up again. One effect is that each shot tends to be longer than what you might be used to.
Playback quality depends on the age of the video and chosen format. The newest 125 videos look very good at the default size and on upsizing; older ones, particularly the Flash streams, lose significant quality on upsizing. While there are several angles per scene, the camerawork is supposed to come across as "self-made" so you don't get constant, rapid cuts between body parts and you don't get an extra-close close-up of the money shot.
You Love Jack now features 240 videos averaging 13 minutes in length. Updates this past year have averaged just one every five weeks or so, down from one every three weeks the previous year. Very much on the upside, there are no restrictions on the videos, so download and keep them as long as you like.
Video is offered in MP4 formats. The MP4 streams display in an embedded window; about one-third are 960x540 pixels; older ones fall off to 480x360 or 507x288 and almost half are just 320x240 pixels.
The MP4 downloads are offered in two or three qualities. The most recent 40% are true high-definition, with a bitrate of about 3500 kbps, sized at 1280x720 pixels. Working back through the catalog the top size drops to 1024x576, then 576x432 (2000 kbps), then 500x380 pixels (1000 kbps).
Screens: The MP4 files will play on an iPhone or iPad; those in true HD look good on the big screen. ;
Image and Other Content
For each video there is an accompanying vidcap gallery. These are all good quality images, and the first 140 image galleries are a larger medium size while the oldest 100 are a smaller medium size. The galleries could be edited down a bit -- there is some repetition of images that look very similar.
The bonus content offered at You Love Jack is found under "More Porn" on the homepage and consists of three video plug-ins plus live cam and VOD upsells.
You Love Jack is a great source of fresh, young Canadian amateurs, featuring well-made videos you can download and keep. These solo guys do an impressive job of showing off their wares as they "jack" to the finish line. The settings are clean and uncomplicated and the camera work is simple but does the trick, adding to the fantasy of self-made porn. Still, the older videos could use upgrading and the update schedule is unpredictable. We still recommend it because this is a uniquely hot and fresh source of amateur solo guys.
