Review date: July 2016
Alpha Males (formerly Alpha Male Fuckers) serves up a mass of muscular, masculine men in solo and hardcore action. The site is straightforward and mostly easy to navigate. Throw in their nice selection of bonus videos and you're ready for some no-attitude, down and dirty masculine action. However, this site has removed all downloads: you can stream only and have to pay for a download if you want one. One major negative: when becoming a member, there is a pre-checked agreement that appears to be related to the site's Terms of Service, but this is actually a sign-up for a trial membership at bulldogpit.com.
The tour at Alpha Males is basic, but you are able to view the complete "Videos" and "Models" indexes; these, in turn, link to short preview clips of all of the site's videos. There are detailed text descriptions, and you can click any active links to see listings based on models and category tags.
The site's navigation is less than. Click "Scenes" to get the list of all of the scenes on the site. Best to avoid the sections (like Alpha Males, Hairy Hunk, Men at Work and Men of the World) because the total number of scenes on the site is much higher than the total if you look at each of the sections; that is, it seems many scenes have not been assigned to one of the sections in the "Scenes" drop-down.
When you go to play a video, the interface is slightly unintuitive. You can start to play the stream, but if you click a quality option, the video will then restart on a new page, so if you want to see your viewing options or the description you have to click the "Back" button.
To access "Bonus" material, you will need to log in using your Alpha Males name and password. The model pages are cross-referenced with the scenes that they're in, and the search function allows both a simple search and a more advanced search.
The Men and the Action
You won't find many slim, shaved twinks here: almost all the guys have some heft, hair and hardcore edge. A model without at least one tattoo and some scruff would be as out of place on Alpha Males as a tutu on a trucker. These guys aren't butch clones, though. The site has a nice range of ages, sizes and performance styles among these almost 260 very manly performers. There's also a wider variety of ethnicities on Alpha Males than on most sites featuring masculine and muscular guys. Many of the videos have a loose story line centered around classic butch fantasies: daddy sex, delivery driver sex, business suit sex; others start out with the guys chatting for a few minutes.
The overall playback quality of the videos decreases as the video inventory gets chronologically older. The more recent videos have a streaming option of up to 5000 kbps and are very good quality, with older ones offering a high quality option at around 2000 kbps. These are usually one camera shoots, almost all are well-lit, capably shot and smoothly edited.
Alpha Males' 450 exclusive videos range from scripted 25 minute action scenes to apparently spontaneous 6 minute solos. The videos stream only, but you do have the option to buy a scene. The site updates on a weekly basis.
All videos stream only, usually in a choice of three qualities; there are no downloads unless you opt to pay for one. The more recent 40% are in MP4 format with a top bitrate of 5,000 kbps and a default size of 1280x720 pixels. Older videos are in Flash and many of these max out at only 700 kbps.
Screens: Included with your subscription is a complete mobile-friendly version of the site. The videos available as MP4s look good on a TV-sized screen.
Image and Other Content
Every episode appears to have an image gallery. Image size and quality decline slightly as you go further back in time, and throughout the site they appear to be video captures and not digital images.
In the "Bonus" content area there are additional videos from each of fifteen other websites including studios such as Bareback that Hole, Bear Films, Eurocreme and Hard Brit Lads..
When you sign up for the site there will be a pre-checked cross-sell for a trial to another site, which will rebill. This appears to be a simple agreement to abide by Alpha Males Terms of Service. It is not. Be sure to uncheck this if you don't want it.
If you like muscular, masculine men in rough-and-tumble action -- often with a light fetish edge -- then you'll like Alpha Males. While quality varies and downloads cost extra, the site offers a great showcase for masculine, muscular guys.
