Review date: January 2017
Alternadudes is a showcase for sexy -- and unusual -- guys that you have never seen before. The age range is from 18-26, and the variation of types reads like Santa Monica Beach at high noon. There are punks and rockers, skaters and surfers, shaggy twinks and emos, goths, musicians, poets, hairy guys, smooth guys, guys with make-up, with piercings and platinum hair, with mohawks, fauxhawks, foreskins ... Whew, does that give you a bit of an idea? Some of these guys won't be to your taste, but we found the strong statements of personal style arousing; plus, the guys bring total enthusiasm and horny commitment to their performances.
The site updates weekly and features excellent quality videos. That said, a small number of the videos have lighting issues, or lack variety in camera angles and poses -- and some of the older videos could benefit from upgrading, but don't let that stop you, this is a strong and unique "alt" gay porn experience.
The fresh and simple design highlights the focus of the site: atypical, horned up dudes with a bit of an edge. A scrolling graphic reveals the three latest updates to the site, followed by 15 thumbnails of the most popular videos. Clicking a thumbnail will take you to that video's details page, and you can preview five hardcore video clips in total.
Alternadudes is easy to navigate and simple in its design. The homepage starts with a tease of upcoming videos, before listing the most recent scenes. You can also focus your search on "Photos," "Movies," "DVDs" and "Models" if you wish, and in each category select from "Most Recent," "Most Popular" or "Name/Title." There is also an advanced search feature, and all the areas of the site are well-supplied with category keyword tags. Lots of work has gone into optimizing the design and functionality of the site -- and it shows.
The Men and the Action
These are not your typical gay porn models. Here the guys are inked and pierced, with multi-colored emo cuts or shaggy hair, and hipster gear. The standard type is a lean to muscular white or Latino guy with an attitude and a sizable dick. Notice we're not saying cute or handsome, because facial beauty is not a given here. When they go at it, these punks can really pound. And that's pretty much what they do: suck, fuck and cum with full intensity. There is not much hardcore kink but a few dildos and cockrings show up from time to time.
Most Alternadudes videos have excellent viewing quality, though a few of the oldest have a slightly fuzzy quality, and a few others look slightly distorted with fast motion. Most begin with a brief interview and then proceed to well shot, nicely edited solo and action sequences. The lighting is even, the sound is good, and the cumshots are always caught.
The 260+ videos on Alternadudes average around fifteen minutes in length. And there is a new update at least once per week.
All of the videos can be streamed in Flash, or downloaded as MP4s (with a few of the older videos still available as WMVs) .
The Flash streams are in an embedded player and offer maximum control options: choose between three qualities -- low, high, or mobile specific.
The MP4 downloads are in a choice of three sizes; the largest is 1280x720 pixels with a bitrate of 3000 kbps.
Screens: There is now a mobile version of the site. Downloads are available in 720p HD and so are suitable for viewing on TV screens.
Image and Other Content
The site used to offer 1000 streaming videos under the category Bonus Feeds, but this section of the site is no longer available.
Straight outta L.A... Alternadudes is a technically excellent site that showcases young alternative guys rarely seen elsewhere. Underneath the floppy hair, ink and piercings are some really hot guys just looking to fuck.
