George Duroy’s Bel Ami has been producing incredibly sexy and well-filmed gay porn for almost twenty-five years. Now there’s a spin-off aptly named Freshmen. This site has a unique magazine presentation and now boasts over 250 excellent quality videos. So if you like young, gorgeous and hung central Europeans filmed in Bel Ami style, it’s definitely worth your consideration. The only negative is that Kinky Angels material is no longer included on the site.
The Freshmen tour gives you a chance to browse through the entire site's contents, and there are plenty of free one-minute preview clips on offer.
The Freshmen look is clean and contemporary and it's a cinch to browse through from page to page. There is a very basic search field, a handy model index, and models in one scene can now be cross-referenced to the rest of their scenes.
Freshmen has a magazine format with a new "issue" coming out each week, usually with three videos along with text descriptions and small screen cap galleries.
The Men and the Action
The freshmen are young, handsome Eastern Europeans lads under 25. They tend to be smooth, lean, uncut and well-endowed, and it is not very often you'll even find a single tattoo on any of them. Although not all of the models identify as gay, they all seem quite keen on fooling around in front of the camera.
Proven Bel Ami models are often on hand to help these young apprentices out, showing them how to make love to (and like) a porn star. If they do well, they may graduate to Bel Ami Online. Others will bloom for a few scenes on Freshmen and never be seen again. Sex can range from solos to mutual jerk-off sessions to blow jobs to full-on raw fucking.
As you would expect from Bel Ami, the videos are outstanding quality, with expert videography, perfect lighting and stunning close-ups.
Freshmen now has over 250 hardcore and solo videos, with 2 to 3 new ones added per weekly issue. Sadly, The Kinky Angels archive, which had over 250 videos in 45 back issues, appears to have been removed in 2019.
The Freshmen videos are available to download in MP4 in three qualities. The top quality is high definition, 1440x816 pixels, 6,000 kbps. They will also stream in-browser at a default size of 960x540 pixels, which you can toggle to full-screen and between SD and HD.
Screens: Freshmen is fully responsive, so it looks good and acts well (except for displaying image galleries) on any size screen. The HD videos look great on a TV-sized screen.
Image and Other Content
Each scene has an image set of just a dozen screen captures. Freshmen has about 65 sets of high-quality digital stills. The digital stills can be viewed in-browser, but for full effect download the zip files for much larger, high-quality pictures.
Stunning men, excellent videography and a fun, porn star tryout theme: Freshmen is a site to join if you admire the brilliant work of George Duroy and his team at Bel Ami.
