Review date: February 2016
Broke Straight Boys is a perennial favorite with BananaGuide visitors. Maybe it's because the owner is a welcoming presence and these natural college age guys have a big comfortable Florida estate to hang out and roam around on. They relax, then the chemistry just happens. Maybe it's the impressively regular update schedule: the site has a constant stream of sexy, young new guys who mix it up with the resident studs in a reliable three video updates a week. About three-quarters of the 1300 videos are in great quality high-definition, and you can stream or download without restrictions. Membership is also a great value.
On the minus side, the three day trial is severely limited: you can only watch the most recent video, and look at the photos. Sometimes the models don't fit what you'd think of as "broke and straight." And there is a pre-checked cross-sale at the sign-up page.
The Broke Straight Boys tour can hardly be called a tour. The non-members homepage is really page one of the episode inventory and consists of 33 images depicting recent scenes. When you click any of these, you're taken to the episode page and you'll see a large graphic of the scene with a horizontal buffering signal that makes you think a video is about to start. Instead, a large black and red graphic appears: "Members Only - Explicit Content". And, of course, a link to the join page. Just below there's a description of the action and links to the model's profiles.
You can page through the entire model roster and the episode index and browse, but there are no preview clips or sample images. Anything that you click on will send you to the join page. Never fear though, you can find lots of good quality image galleries for BSB right here on BananaGuide.
Broke Straight Boys navigation is straightforward, with prominent links to the complete episode index and the model index ("The Boys"). For each episode you're presented with a detailed description of the model and the shooting session, along with the video options and the image gallery. It is now possible to do a more fine-grained search than previously. Under "Tags" you can select by numerous categories and under "Search" you can do a general search. You can also rate each video and add the ones you like the most to your Favorites.
The Men and the Action
The site showcases 535 of these broke straight boys. They are 19-25 year old amateurs, ranging from twinks to collegiate types. Some look more natural and amateur than others - the ability to put on a performance for the camera is not automatic. They usually start seated on a couch with a brief interview. The "straight and broke" aspect is heavily emphasized - but being broke doesn't seem to affect their enthusiasm in bed.
The majority of new scenes on BSB are bareback. You'll find the range of: solo jerking, toys, sucking, rimming, hungry bottoms and cocky, masculine tops. This is a horny bunch, mixing up regulars and newcomers in solos, duos, and groups.
The viewing quality of the more recent 75% of the videos, rendered in high-definition is excellent; older videos aren't quite as sharp but still very high quality. The lighting and sound are definitely above average. In composition and camera technique there's a bit to be desired. We found the one camera shoots a bit too static at times, and would like to have seen more camera angles, close-ups and poses.
BSB currently offers 1290 videos, averaging 25 minutes in length. The site is updated three times a week with new video. There are no download restrictions, so you can save and keep them as long as you want.
About three-quarters of the videos (added since April, 2010) are high-definition. For these, MP4 videos are available to download and to stream in three qualities; the maximum is 1280x720 pixels with a bitrate of about 3,000 kbps. When streaming they at first display in a 960x540 in-browser window, but can be upsized to full screen for full effect.
Older videos have a maximum bitrate of 2,000 kbps and are standard-definition, 640x480 pixels. These obviously don't have quite the technical quality of the high-def videos.
Screens: While the site tour is optimized for mobile, the members' area is not; still it's easy enough to get around on the phone and the videos play just fine. Those in high-definition will also look great on TV-sized screens.
Image and Other Content
More recent videos are accompanied by a digital still gallery of 25 pics, 900x600 pixels. These can be downloaded in a zip file. Older videos have both digital still and video capture galleries.

Broke Straight Boys continues to be a very popular site that consistently delivers hot young amateurs in HD videos, along with frequent updates.
