Review date: March 2017
Broke Straight Boys was launched with a simple idea: a hot, young guy is broke. With no skills to speak of, he needs to do something fast to earn money. His first video scene with BSB is just a solo jerk-off, but if he wants another payday he must consider sucking dick or at least being sucked -- and eventually full-on butt sex. While the men on this site are not always "boys" there's a constant stream of new ones who mix it up with the resident studs in three video updates a week. And about three-quarters of the 1500 videos are in high definition that you can stream or download, though the downloads top out at 720p HD.
On the minus side, the three day trial is streaming only. Also watch out for the pre-checked cross-sale at the sign-up page.
The Broke Straight Boys tour is tighter than a straight boy's butt. The non-members homepage is really page one of the episode inventory and consists of 40 thumbnail images of recent scenes. When you click any of these, you're taken to that episode page but you get the message: "Members Only - Explicit Content". Just below there's a description of the action, links to the model profiles and a grid of thumbnail pics from the scene.
You can browse through the entire model roster and the video index but there are no preview clips or sample images. Anything that you click on will send you to the join page. Never fear though, you can find lots of good quality image galleries for BSB right here on BananaGuide.
Broke Straight Boys navigation is straightforward, with prominent links to the complete episode index and the model index ("The Boys"). For each episode you're presented with a detailed description of the model and the shooting session, along with the video options and the image gallery.
Under "Tags" you can select by numerous categories and under "Search" you can do a general search. The model index can be sorted by over a dozen criteria (including cock size and age). You can also rate models, as well as rate, favorite and comment on videos.
The Men and the Action
The site showcases 450 of these broke straight guys. They are 19-25 year old amateurs, ranging from twinks to collegiate to rough around the edges types. Some look more amateur than others -- and it shows in their ability to put on a performance for the camera. They usually start the scene with a brief interview, in which the "straight and broke" aspect is emphasized -- but being broke doesn't seem to affect their enthusiasm in bed.
The majority of new scenes on BSB are now bareback. You'll find the range of: solo jerking, toys, sucking, rimming, hungry bottoms and cocky, masculine tops. This is a horny bunch, mixing up regulars and newcomers in solos, duos, and groups.
The viewing quality of the more recent 75% of the videos, rendered in high-definition, is excellent; older videos aren't quite as sharp but still very good. The lighting and sound are definitely above average. In composition and camera technique there's a bit to be desired. We found the one camera shoots a bit too static at times, and would like to have seen more camera angles, close-ups and poses.
BSB currently offers 1445 videos, averaging 25 minutes in length. The site is updated three times a week with new video. There are no download restrictions (unless you're really greedy and try to download a massive amount) so you can keep them as long as you want.
The MP4 streams added since late 2013 are offered at a maximum quality of 1920x1080p HD; previous HD streams (dating back to April, 2010) top out at 1280x720p. Older videos are standard definition. The streams play in a resizable player with a default size of 1100x600 pixels.
As for downloads, oddly they are not offered in full 1080p HD, as the streams are. Three-quarters of the downloads (added since April, 2010) are MP4s with a top quality of 1280x720p HD (2700 kbps). The oldest 25% of videos are standard-definition (640x480 pixels; 2000 kbps). These obviously don't have quite the technical quality of the high-def videos.
Screens: The site now has a fully responsive design, so its easy to use no matter if you are on a regular computer or mobile device. Those video in high-definition will also look great on TV-sized screens.
Image and Other Content
More recent videos are accompanied by a digital still gallery of 25 pics, 900x600 pixels. These can be downloaded in a zip file. Older videos have both digital still and video capture galleries. The digital photos are up to 1200x900 pixels and good quality; the video capture galleries are 960x540 and average quality.
You also have access to some bonus sites with tons more hot younger guys in almost 1700 videos that you can download:
Straight Boys Jerkoff
College Boy Physicals
Amateur Boys First Time
HS Boys (a large selection of popular video plug-ins).
Another bonus is the large collection of Behind the Scenes videos. There are almost 230 of them, mostly interviews with the boys, but also some on-set hi-jinks and special location footage.
Broke Straight Boys continues to be a very popular site that consistently delivers hot young amateurs in almost 1500 videos, most in HD, along with frequent updates. While these boys may be broke, their smooth skin, cute faces and hard dicks are definitely valuable currency.
