Review date: March 2016
[NOTE: This site underwent a complete redesign in May, 2016; this review will be updated shortly]
Franco, the host of Straight Fraternity, specializes in finding sexy young straight guys (not necessarily college jocks) and getting them to do gay stuff. This is one of those sites where the models are encouraged verbally and sometimes serviced by the videographer, so it has an authentic feel and it's evident that it's a labor of love. The videos aren't fancy, but they do the trick. There used to be several hundred videos available on this site but in May, 2016, it underwent a complete redo: now all of the videos older than a year have been removed, with the intention or reintroducing them as "new" updates.
The Straight Fraternity preview is a mirror of the content inside, and allows you to browse through the indexes and check out the variety of guys on the site. To watch a free clip, look for the Sample Video button. The tour gives you an excellent idea of the kind of men and the action inside.
While the design of Straight Fraternity is a little dated and quirky, it's simple enough to get around. The main content starts on the homepage; these are the "Pledges" being taken through the paces of gay sex. Follow the links at the top of the page for the other main sections of the site: "Auditions" where "Rushees" have to jerk off for the camera; and "Gloryholes" for anonymous blowjobs.
Note that the "Preview" and "Members" links both take you to the homepage. Also, the site has no search, no category tags and no links to pull together all the scenes a model has been in.
The Men and the Action
Contrary to the site name, all you need to be in this fraternity is to be a good looking guy. The men here are quite varied, but many of them are sexy without being overly cute or built. Most are amateurs but there are a few familiar faces, too.
The set is basic -- a couch or a bed -- and can be the same for weeks or months. The sex ranges from solo scenes taking place in Auditions and mostly duos in the main section. Generally the (apparently) straight guys are encouraged to explore gay sex with handjobs, blowjobs and fucking, along with some kinkier things like paddles. Site operator Franco gets in on the action himself often enough and the guys seem to be having a fun time.
The videos, shot in HD, are good quality. The videos are well made but without the flashiness of branded studios.
At review time there were over 300 videos, of which most were regular, hardcore sex videos, and other were auditions glory hole videos.
Video will stream or download in QuickTime and Windows Media formats. The more recent half of the Windows Media files play at 960x540 pixels, from 3000 to 5000 kbps. Corresponding QuickTime videos have a bitrate around 1800 kbps. Older videos are standard definition with lower bitrates. Videos will also stream in Flash format.
The site's streams are broken up into clips (which they call "scenes") for some reason, which is unnecessary. Depending on your browser and operating system, some of the stream formats may not work. Offering only streaming and downloadable MP4s, which is the trend, would resolve this issue.
Screens: You can play the videos on a mobile device; however, the site design is the same as for desktops so the print is tiny and some streaming options won't work.
Image and Other Content
Most videos also have a set of screen caps. There are 20 to 30 per set and are good quality. But there's no slideshow or zip file downloads -- not even a way to move from one picture to the next without going back to the thumbnails.
Straight Fraternity will get you off if you like amateur guys in good quality, not overly produced videos, and will especially appeal if you like to see lots of interaction with the man behind the camera. But the decision to remove hundreds of older videos and reintroduce them as "new" content is regrettable.
