Review date: August 2016
Bang Bang Boys turns its hot tropical beam on more than 225 stunning Latin guys, age 18-30. You'll see them in 380 exclusive videos (and 170 non-exclusive videos) you can stream or download and in great looking digital images that showcase their gorgeous skin tones, stunning faces, and their thick, uncut "attributes." Most of the videos look good, though a fair number have a top bitrate of less than 800 kbps. But we noticed that not all the "new" videos are actually new; sometimes the content is recycled with a recent date.
On the top of the non-members homepage you'll find eight thumbnails of the most recently uploaded episodes to preview; you can also preview all older videos by clicking on any of the video thumbnails on the rest of the tour. The clips are explicit and will give you a flavor of the video quality. You can search for more specific content using the category menu along the left side of the site. Although the tour indicates that there are 70 pages of content, most of this is photosets rather than videos.
Navigation through Bang Bang Boys is simple, though there are a couple of confusing points. There's a basic menu along the top of the page -- including "Videos," "Photos," and "Download To Own" -- and thumbnail images of each scene below. Each model page has a scene description, stats, and buttons for the videos and the pictures.
There are a few oddities. For some reason the category menu is only available on the homepage; otherwise, if you want to find something specific, you need to use the search bar. The "Download to Own" section should just be called "Bonus Videos" because it consists of non-exclusive DVD scenes which you can stream or download (and you can stream or download the exclusive videos as well). Also, the downloads are labelled as Windows Media, when they are actually MP4s.
The Men and the Action
We haven't seen these models elsewhere: good looking Latin men, most with thick dark hair, others more light-skinned. The Bang Boys are shot indoors and outdoors, surrounded by saturated tropical colors. Each video scene has a brief description, along with some important stats such as cock size. Approximately half the scenes are solo, but there's also plenty of duo and group scenes featuring deep kissing, cock sucking, ass fucking, rim jobs, and toys.
Overall the viewing quality is very good for the more recent two -thirds of videos, and less so for older ones (whose top bitrate is just 700 kbps).We were impressed by the quality of light in these videos. Just the right quality of light is vitally important when you're shooting models with darker skin tone. The camera moves easily around the action, and there is a decent variety of angles, poses, and of close and medium distance shots.
There are over 380 videos on Bang Bang Boys, averaging 20 minutes in length, plus 170 bonus DVD scenes (confusingly called "Download to Own"). The site does not seem to update on a regular schedule, with up to a month between "new" videos, and many of these are recycled from years ago.
Videos are available to stream at several quality levels in Flash format. You can also download the videos (the site indicates that these are Windows Media files, but they are MP4s). The very recent 25% of videos are 1280x720 in size, with a bitrate of 1800-2000 kbps. Working back through the catalog, another 30% of the videos have a top bitrate of 1500 kbps and are either 864x480 or 640x480 pixels in size; most of the rest top out at a mere 768 kbps.
Screens: The site is now optimized for mobile viewing. But even the "HD" ones are less than ideal for viewing on a TV screen, because the highest bitrate is 2000 kbps.
Image and Other Content
There are lots of very high quality images for you to enjoy at Bang Bang Boys. Each of the boys has a digital image gallery of them, and each of the videos has its own video capture image gallery. These beautifully lit and shot images display in a richly-toned large size. You can view any of the pictures one by one, or view them in a slide show.
The "MenLive" hasn't had a live show for years, but it does have an archive of almost 400 Raging Stallion Studios live cam sessions. Bonus content also includes the "XXX Cinema" of 16 movie feeds.
Bang Bang Boys is a great showcase for some very hot Latin men, though inconsistent release of new material, the recycling of older material and lack of attention to navigation are issues.
