Review date: March 2017
Ahh, boyz: smooth and slender young guys (18-22), each one hornier than the last. These guys are all that, with cute faces, hard dicks and willing holes galore. We get to see them in front of Boy Crush's state-of-the-art HD cameras, and many turn out to be excellent performers. A majority of the more than 1200 videos will stream and download in 1080p HD; many others are in 720p HD, and the site is fully responsive to tablets and phones. One minus: the trial membership could be way more generous.
The Boy Crush tour is refreshingly generous. To start, the homepage offers up featured videos and recent updates that open to free video clips. And we were very pleased to find that inside the video index you can view explicit clips for any episode right up to page 14. You can also browse the site's entire model roster where many, but not all, of the model's profiles open to the episodes they've starred in -- and to more explicit clips.
The members' homepage features pics and text descriptions and can be adjusted to display from 6 to 48 of the most most recent episodes, or Highest Rated, or a number of other criteria. There are the usual buttons across the top of each page for the important areas like "Videos," "Photos," and "Models." You can use a drop down list to select among the various video lines and inside the bonus content (which now seems dated and we wouldn't miss).
There are detailed search and sort features for models -- by name, keyword, category, and by numerous tag words. Members can also participate by rating episodes and saving favorites. What we do not like is the advertisements for outside products in the sidebar and at the bottom of every page inside the members' area.
The Men and the Action
The site's specialty is very cute and young gay guys age 18 to 24. Despite their mostly slender frames, they have an impressive assortment of big dicks, washboard abs, bubble butts and flawless smiles, along with some tats and piercings for variety. Most of the guys are more conventionally cute, while a few are more challenging and alternative looking. A very small number even have the "Emo" look, with masses of swooshy hair - sometimes in wild colors. And almost all clearly state that yes, they're gay. While Boy Crush is a condom site, content from its bareback equivalent, Bare Twinks, is integrated alongside the much greater number of condom Boy Crush episodes.
A fairly unique aspect of Boy Crush is the detailed interviews. If you're a die-hard twink fan then you'll be interested in what the guys have to say, and this is an aspect of the site that was developed in direct response to members wishes. There's also lots of bio information and an active comments area. Most of the videos are shot indoors and many scenes finish with one or both of the guys lapping up a generous creamy facial.
Playback quality is excellent for 1080p videos, and for the older HD videos - and still good for the non-HD choices.The lighting and sound is mostly very good, except that in some past episodes those hard-to-reach places were not well enough lit. The camera work has become expert, and the videos usually feature an interesting variety of shots. We're now much more likely to see the camera moving fluidly around these cute young models. And on most of the videos shot in the past couple of years a second camera has been used to capture a different angle on the cumshot. This means that the all-important money shots are almost always caught.
As of this review there are 1180 exclusive videos on Boy Crush (including approximately 300 from Bare Twinks and 28 from Homemade Twinks), These have an average running time of 20 minutes. Two new videos are added each week and you can stream or download any video on the site.
You can stream or download in MP4 format in a choice of three to four qualities. The more recent two-thirds are true HD (1280x720p or 1920x1080p; 6000 kbps); older ones are 640x360 or 640x480 pixels.
Screens: There is a mobile version of the site included with your membership. The HD MP4's even look good on the big television screen.
Image and Other Content
Each video is accompanied by a video capture set of around 180 pics. There are also galleries of 20 to 50 pics for each individual model on his bio page. Recent vidcaps are 960x540 px and very good quality; older ones are 640x360 or 640x480 and are good quality. The digital photo galleries for various individual models are also fine quality and a good size.There are zip files for all image sets.
Finally, the Boy Crush deal is augmented by a small and rather irrelevant collection of bonus videos in the "Videos" section.
The trial membership is very cut-down; you can view just two videos before being asked to upgrade. They tell you this but it is in small black print on a dark grey background. There is also an upsell inside the member area to several sites the operator is trying to push. Ignore the button at the top right that says: Network.
Ahhh youth! Boy Crush has grown up and has become a large and technically advanced site, but its models remain boyishly fresh. Along with an abundance of creamy skin, hairless chests, rad piercings and large boners, there is an easy banter between them that reminds us: sex is for fun - and even if you're young, you can always use a good facial! If you like twinks, you're bound to develop a crush or two on this site.
