Next Door Studios is a 17 site, one price pass to 3814 exclusive, high quality videos you can stream or download. The models are top grade, ranging from untested young amateurs to skilled favorite studs. While only six of the sites currently update, new content is at about five per week. At $14.95 for the first month, and with masses of HD videos, this is a very popular network at a great price.


You can begin with the video teasers cycling through at the top of the page. Then you can browse through the complete movie inventory and watch clips.

When you go to sign-up, there is a pre-checked trial offer to another site, which you should uncheck. Also be aware that the trial offers only limited access.


The Next Door Studios sites feature bold graphics against a jet-black background. Navigation is straightforward enough. Once you have logged in, use the toolbar across the top of the page to select "Movies," a site from the "17 Sites" menu, "Guys" or "Photos". There is also a section called "On The Set" which offers short interviews from the men on the site. The page layouts are almost identical no matter where you go, so navigation is a cinch. There is a search box for the individual sites as well as for the entire network.

There is a separate menu along the very top each page that links to various sites not included in the membership (including a DVD page and links to other porn companies' properties).

When you first log in to the site, there is a blog like pop-up that highlights all the latest news, from new scenes to contests. When you close it, it remains closed for the duration of your visit.

The Men and the Action

Next Door Studios is stocked with a choice crew of handsome, masculine, mostly 19-30 year-old studs. There are some tats and piercings, but mostly these guys are straight-up young, sexy and muscular, without being too heavily muscled or kinky.

Since our last review, two new sites have been added. Next Door Taboo focuses on sex between step-relatives, with older Next Door scenes involving step-brother action included. Next Door Homemade features self-filmed videos by various porn stars, with both solo and hardcore content.

The solo videos are mostly found on Next Door Male and serve as an introduction to the guy, spoken in his own words. He talks to the camera and tells us about his hobbies and fantasies, then strips and jerks so we can see his talents.

Most of the other sites are hardcore, where you'll find duo and group videos with the usual range of guy-on-guy kissing, sucking, fondling and fucking. Next Door Buddies, Next Door Originals, Next Door Twink, Next Door Taboo and Next Door Raw are the main hardcore sites that update, and in the past year the emphasis has been on bareback scenes. Some of the sites have a specific focus, like Next Door Twink and Next Door Taboo, and a few relate to specific stars like Mason Wyler or Austin Wilde. There's also some bisexual content, limited to Next Door Hookups.

Video Details

The videos are very good to excellent quality, according to how recently the video was added to a site. Over 70% are true high-definition 1080p high definition. These sessions are among the best of any gay porn site, with excellent light, clear sound, and a good range of camera angles, close-up and medium shots, and model poses. The all-important cumshots are all there and the gorgeous rich settings don't hurt either.

There are over 3814 videos on the site. The movies average 15 minutes in length, and the network updates up to five times a week, with most updates appearing on Next Door Raw.

Here are the numbers and frequency for sites that update:

Twice weekly:
Next Door Raw: 335 bareback videos
Next Door Homemade: 25 solo and hardcore videos

Once weekly:
Next Door Buddies: 768 hardcore videos
Next Door Twink: 338 solo and hardcore videos of younger men.

Stroke That Dick: 78 solo male videos
Next Door Hookups: 281 male/female videos

Although you will see model sharing across the sites, most videos are original and unique to that site.

Video on most of the Next Door Studios sites will stream and download in MP4 format.

There are several quality choices for MP4 downloads and streams. The ones added since April, 2011 (over 70%) have a top choice of 1920x1080 pixels and up to 7000 kbps. Working back through the catalog, the previous 20% (added since mid-2009) top out at 960x540 pixels, 2000 kbps. The oldest videos, not filmed in HD, are smaller, with a bitrate of 2000 kbps.

All streams, no matter what their native size, are displayed in the embedded player with a maximum height of 600 pixels. These can be toggled to full screen.

Screens: The site's content is easily viewed on its mobile version, included with your membership. About 70% have a size and bitrate high enough that they will look great on a full-sized TV screen.

Image and Other Content

There are video capture image galleries for most videos on the Next Door sites, averaging 70 pictures each. There are also digital image galleries that you can find under "The Guys". Especially in the digital image galleries, the lighting and poses is definitely above average. Some of the galleries are topped up at the end by a couple of video captures of lesser quality for the cumshots, and some of the galleries consist entirely of video captures.

Summing Up

The exclusive content at the Next Door Studios sites will appeal to those who like hot, regular guys aged 19-30. By sticking to this particular model type, grooming their hottest stars, and offering so much porn-for-dollar, Next Door Studios serves up quantity, quality and value.
