Review date: January 2020
Active Duty is the largest military porn site online -- and some of these young guys are HOT. Most of the 18-25 year olds on the site are real US service men, who don't mind sharing their gorgeous cut bodies and hard dicks with the rest of us. Hosted by Dink Flamingo, Active Duty offers over 1360 videos, with twice weekly updates, to stream and download. All of the site's older standard-definition videos have been re-mastered, over 60% are in HD, and video quality ranges from good to excellent throughout the site.
The Active Duty tour homepage remains somewhat busy, however you can now browse the entire video index and watch free clips, with a couple of limitations: you can only watch a total of five, and there are no clips available for the older half of the videos.
When you go to sign-up, watch out for the pre-checked trial offer to another site, which you should uncheck.
The look and navigation of Active Duty is fresh, well-organized, and contemporary. As a member, you can readily browse through "Videos" (hardcore and solo), "Recruits" (aka War Chest, solo videos of new models), "Soldiers" (models) and "Pictures". You can sort by date, highest rated, upcoming, and most popular scenes. On the individual scene pages there are topic tags and cross-links to related videos and to the model pages. You'll also find a general search box.
As with too many sites, there is now an upsell page when you sign in. You have to decline the offers to get to the content you've paid for.
The Men and the Action
The amateur models on Active Duty are in the 18-25 age range, and when you combine youth, good genes and rigorous military fitness training, the result is some absolute stunners -- most with buzz cuts of course. There are lots of huge dicks, muscular builds, complex tats, and marble smooth skin.
Most scenes begin with a few minutes of banter with the models, to get them comfortable. These buff young men work their way along the path from solo sessions, to hot duos, and sometimes all-out group action. Included are solo jerk-offs, sucking, rimming, fucking and the use of a few toys. The more experienced guys often initiate the raw recruits, some of whom look ridiculously baby-faced and tentative.
One recent plus is that the famous Dirk Yates is now contributing new content. Between Dink and Dirk, Active Duty has an expert team of military porn specialists.
The video content is found in:
Videos: all video scenes, exclusive to the site, though many have been previously released on DVD.
Recruits (War Chest): just the solo, audition-type videos.
DVDs: an index of DVD titles, which will link to scenes (though not all scenes are available to watch.)
The viewing quality of the video varies a lot, depending on when they were shot. Most are very good to excellent at the default size. Although competently shot and edited, the scenes are filmed with one handheld camera and the style is purposefully amateurish. Lighting is sometimes an issue and older vids tend to be less sharp than newer ones.
There are over 1360 videos on the site, with a hardcore and a solo episode, (including a 1080p video and image gallery) added each week. You can stream them or download them to keep.
Video is available to stream or download in MP4 format.
The more recent 65% of the MP4 video streams and downloads are available in several qualities. For most the top choice is 1280x720p (5000 kbps), but those added since mid-2015 (about 20% of the total) are full 1920x1080p HD (6000 kbps). Older ones, shot in standard definition, have a bitrate around 2000 kbps, but are sized at 960x720 or 720x540 pixels.
Screens: You can stream the videos on a smart phone or tablet. Those videos shot in HD look
good on a large, TV-sized screen.
Image and Other Content
In the "Galleries" section you'll find 1280 digital image and video capture sets. The are generally good quality, average sized images of 70 pictures each. You can download zip files and watch in slide-show mode.
Active Duty taps into a pool of the world's sexiest young military, ex-military and college age amateurs. Most of these straight amateurs are athletic, confident and damn sexy -- and the video viewing quality of most of the scenes is very good to excellent, with an authentic, amateur style of camera work. If you love hot young guys, you'll love this site, even if not all of them are from the military.
