Review date: October 2017
Boy Fun Collection offers an enormous volume of exclusive porn, with several video updates per week and a library of over a million high-resolution images. For admirers of younger guys -- from eighteen to mid-twenties -- the effect is mesmerizing. BoyFun relies on 25 video producers from around the world to keep the faces fresh, and in the past few years the videos are in full HD. The main drawback is the site's lack of personality: there are names but no stats, very few interviews, and even ages are rarely given for these cuties. The monthly price is also above average. But if you're OK with that, then sit back and enjoy.
The BoyFun tour homepage opens with a rapidly changing graphic displaying images of recent episodes. Down the page you will find a listing of the latest video and gallery updates. Only two of the video links open to a free video preview; the rest will give a sample collection of thumbnail images from the scene.
You can view the complete list of scenes and galleries by clicking on the main menu near the top of the page. However, only some of these include ample images and none provide trailers to the videos.
For some reason, the emphasis on the site seems to be on the photo galleries. They appear first in the menu and on the top of the first page of the member's site. They even have a list of categories, from amateurs to athletes to outdoors. The "Movies" are all lumped into a single category. Luckily, there is a very comprehensive "Search" feature that allows you to narrow down your search by media type (pics or videos) and by model attributes and action.
The Men and the Action
BoyFun has over 2550 attractive 18-25 year old amateur guys, mostly European, ranging from young and slender to collegiate hunks. The majority of the image galleries and movies are shot indoors. Outdoor locations include pools, beaches, the forest, and a tropical garden. The action includes solo jerk-off, duo and group scenes and the use of some toys.
Unfortunately, what BoyFun lacks is personality. There are few model interviews, and the young guys themselves do not throw many real sparks. To be fair, though, with their smooth muscular bodies and hard cocks, they are still hot as can be.
The viewing quality of the videos vary, with the more recent 50% available in high-definition MP4, but older ones are lesser quality. Occasionally we found blurring or pixellation with faster motion in the action of the video, particularly in the streams.
On the videography side, although the one-camera, usually handheld, movies are well lit, competently edited, and usually have several poses and angles, they could not really be called inspired.
New videos are uploaded four to five times a week, and new image galleries nearly 7 days a week. At this year's review there are over 4,060 videos, averaging 20 minutes in length. If you like gay porn number-crunching that's hundreds of hours of high quality video to watch (not all at once please!)
Just over half of the videos are available in MP4 format. These are true high-definition, sized at 1280x720 pixels, with at least a 4,000 kbps bitrate, and are the best quality.
All videos are also available in Windows Media (WMV) format; about half display at 720x480 pixels (2000 kbps). Older ones are standard definition 620x480 pixels (1600 kbps), or smaller.
Many of the older videos don't stream, but only download.
Screens: While there isn't a mobile version of the site design, since May of 2010, small MP4s, that will stream or download on a mobile device have been available. The high-definition MP4s are suitable for viewing on large screens.
Image and Other Content
BoyFun has always featured top notch digital still photos. The quality of the more than 6628 image galleries -- averaging 130 pictures for each gallery, is excellent, and can be viewed as "High-Res" (large) and "Low-Res" (medium), opening up to pictures of exceptional clarity. Photosets can also be downloaded as zip files.
Your monthly membership also includes a handful of third-party feeds to several voyeur cam sites, streaming video, and 'zines.
BoyFun gives admirers of young guys an absolute mountain of 18-23 year old amateurs. The amount of content is mind-boggling, particularly with the addition of more and higher quality format choices; and -- for those into still images -- the hi-resolution photos are very impressive. The site does lack personality, it is somewhat over-priced, and it would be nice to see older videos upgraded; still, BoyFun is a good bet, especially since you can download and keep any of the videos.
