Review date: July 2016
If you dig watching hot, young black men having sex in high quality HD videos then you've come to the right place, though this site has increased its price to a crazy level. CocoDorm, now known as Rock's CocoDorm, operates out of Chicago and is one of several Flava Works sites. While the "CocoDorm" concept pushes the voyeur cams, it's really more about the large collection of well shot studio videos, along with a mass of archived live-cam footage. Although the price is the highest we have every seen and the site design is confusing, the upgraded video collection of these big-dicked young studs will keep you plenty happy
CocoDorm's tour is very minimal. When you click "Dorm Tour" you'll see a page that starts with Preview Home. On this page there are three thumbnail images that open to a very small static image gallery from one of the video shoots. Click on any of these images and you'll be taken to the join page. You can browse the video inventory and view a few pictures of models in the Dorm Dudes index to get an idea of the models and their pairings with other guys, but click anywhere in these areas and you'll be taken straight to the join page. There are no sample video clips.
CocoDorm's design and navigation is not streamlined or well organized. There are too many categories and the overall design and fonts are dated. The site's navigation links run down the left column. There are many of them, but only a few are going to be really important to you as a member. Of all the choices, "Videos" should be your first stop, with very good quality videos that can be streamed or downloaded.
Remember, the site started out as a cam-boy site so there are lots of features geared to that. The biggest section is called "Streams" which are over 3,000 archived videos of interactive cam-boy performances. If you want to savour digital images, choose "Photos." There is no search on this site at all; you can sort by model name or date and that's about it.
The Men and the Action
The typical guy at CocoDorm is young, lean, and well-muscled. There are many shades of brown, including a few Latino guys. Big dicks, bubble butts and tattoos abound, and there is avid cocksucking, fucking, and rimming - sometimes finishing in creamy facials. Members help choose the guys they want to come live at the dorm by voting for their applications on a section called “Wannabes.”
The premium content is in the "Videos" section, consisting of just over 600 high-quality videos. The next level of quality is what they call "Streams" and "Live Cam Archives." These are 3100 recordings, at a low bitrate and under varying light conditions, of the action caught by the live cameras in the dorm.
The chosen boys live at the dorm house for varying lengths of time. Each model has a profile that states their sexual orientation and preference, stats, relationship status, dick size and e-mail address. Some of the models also used to maintain blogs, and some still take part in forums and are featured in confessional videos, where they reveal more about themselves, their preferences and sexual adventures.
The dorm is fitted with multiple cameras in various locations, allowing you to find and follow the live action. You're much more likely to see a solo performance than hardcore action here. And when it does happen, the sex can be far away, poorly lit and feature dismal sound quality. So for the best quality stuff remember to head to the professionally filmed content in the "Videos" section.
Playback quality on the more recent 2/3 of the videos is very good. Videography on the regular videos is good but on the streams and the archived cam shows it is underwhelming. In general, sound quality is quite poor, making it hard to hear what the models are saying, which can be frustrating during their steamy confessionals.
As mentioned, the real value of your membership comes from the 600 professionally shot exclusive solo and hardcore videos. Over the past year video updates have been posted approximately once every ten days. There are also almost 3100 archived live cam videos, of much lower quality.
The regular videos are now available to download in MP4 format; over 80% are high-definition, 1280x720 pixels, 2,400 kbps.
Videos will also stream in Flash, displaying in an embedded 700x400 pixel window, with two quality choices.
The archived live footage plays in a small 320x240 window at 275 kbps and is poor quality.
Screens: There is no mobile version of this site available. The HD videos do look good on a TV-sized screen, though.
Image and Other Content
CocoDorm has a large inventory of photo sets, with hundreds of models and weekly updates. There are 600 image galleries, with an average of 70 pictures per model. Most of the sets are solos, but there is also some duo and threesome action. Picture quality is great and you can download the entire set with a handy zip file option. Cocodorm offers a variety of creative features, such as stories and a desk top calendar. There's also a link to a cam site with Black models, called FlavaCams.
CocoDorm serves up a large collection of very good quality videos of young, mostly African American amateurs. They may play tough, but these gorgeous, endowed guys love the attention and are very responsive to viewers’ requests. The live action seems to have been reinstated now, but the huge price increase seems nuts.
