Review date: May 2015
Big Daddy is network of gay sites brought to to by Bang Brothers, the company behind the infamous Bait Bus. There's a heck of a lot of content here: over 900 scenes from such sites as Out in Public, Rub Him and It's Gonna Hurt among several others. While the quality of the original content is high, the network appears to have stopped updating in August of 2014, the tour is misleading and sparse and there are major upsells inside the site.
The Big Daddy tour claims it is "the largest 100% original gay porn website in the world! Updated daily with never-before seen original, exclusive bareback gay porn videos!" Nothing about this is true. Sean Cody and Next Door World are larger, the updates are once every 3 days and while recent updates are bareback, much of the back catalog is not.
The tour consists of a single page laid out in in Tube-like grid. Click what looks like what will be a video clip preview for any of these and you're taken to the sign-up page. In fact, click anything and you'll be taken to the sign-up page. The tour is inadequate as it provides very little information about what is inside the site or any video clips or sample images.
On the sign-up page the default choice is the $1, one day trial, which is a terrible choice because it 1) is limited to just three streaming scenes; 2) they don't tell you that; and 3) it rebills at $39.95, $10 more than the regular monthly rate. Also be wary of the pre-checked one-day offer to Haze Him. All in all, a terrible tour.
There isn't much to what they call the "homepage." Aside from the one link to Big Daddy, everything else is an upsell, even sites listed under "Your Library." One really stinky trick: an upsell to a site called Project Dick, which you won't discover is a clone of Haze Him until after you upgrade. It's really better to just skip this unusual homepage and use the "Big Daddy" link as your homepage instead.
All of the included content is accessible within Big Daddy, so you don't have to deal with multiple log-ins or inconsistent designs. You can always filter your search by individual site with a handy drop down menu, but you also have the option of clicking on "Big Daddy" to get the master directory combining all the content from the included sites. All the videos have category tags and sort options and there's a general search box, too. While there isn't a model index, when you are on a video page you can click on the model name to see what else he's been in. The individual video page is reasonably well laid out with several streaming and download options.
The Men and the Action
There's a variety of men on this network so it's hard to pin down a type. Most of the Big Daddy sites each have a theme they follow, most with a "reality" edge. The company put a slew of these themed sites out between 2009 and 2012 and some have fewer than 20 scenes in them. New scenes seem to all be bareback whether they are for Out in Public, which has over 200 videos exploring sex in public places like parks and parking lots; Rub Him, with over 150 videos that start as a massage and always have a happy ending; or Bareback Casting, which is shot from the point-of-view of a top with a heavy accent and a big dick. Of the other sites, which no longer update, It's Gonna Hurt is likely the most well-known with a theme of a giant-dicked top invading a tight-holed bottom.
The viewing quality of the videos is generally very good. The camera style tends to be handheld, adding to the "reality" feel of the sites and there's a good variety of poses and angles.
All together there are over 900 videos on Big Daddy, but there hasn't been new content since August, 2014.
Rub Him: 162 videos from 2011-2014.
Out in Public: 216 videos from 2010-2014.
Ex-BF: 32 videos, all from 2011.
It's Gonna Hurt: 134 videos from 2009-2012.
Project City Bus: 17 videos from 2011-2012.
Sausage Party: 19 videos from 2010-2011.
Thug Hunter: 58 videos from 2010-2012.
Unglory Hole: 106 videos from 2010-2012.
Urban Invasion: 7 videos from 2012.
Butter Loads: 12 videos, all from 2010.
Big Daddy offers a variety of streaming and download options:
You can stream or download MP4s; these will stream in-browser in your choice of three qualities; the largest is 960x540 pixels; or download them at a maximum quality of 1280x720 pixels, 3,000 kbps. You can also download in Windows Media format, 850x480 pixels, 1600 kbps. There is another option as well: you can stream or download the content in 5-minute clip form if you choose.
Screens: A full mobile version of the site is included with your membership. The HD versions of the videos look good on a TV-sized screen.
Image and Other Content
Most of the videos are accompanied by large, high-quality sets of both digital photos and vidcaps. There are often more than 200 images per set (more than needed, really) and they can be downloaded in a zip file.
Image and Other Content
Because they don't tell you about the severely cut-down access if you take a one day trial, because of the pre-checked cross-sell; and especially because of the upsells inside the site (including a clone of Haze Him) Big Daddy loses Fairness points.
While Big Daddy has a lot of very good quality themed content, there are no new updates, an inadequate, misleading tour and upsells inside the site.
30 day: $29.95 (rebills @ $29.95)
1 day: $1.00 (limited trial) (no rebill)
