Review date: June 2018
International porn director Kristen Bjorn has had great success as a traditional studio producer and has fully developed his studio's web presence. Bjorn makes movies starring real men: young Latin American, Czech, Hungarian, Spanish and Italian studs who are always hard, and always ready to fuck or be fucked. The website serves up close to 1300 exclusive scenes and members are now allowed up to ten downloads per day.
The Kristen Bjorn tour unfolds over one long graphically rich page that lists member benefits and showcases the masculine Euro-models for which the site is famous. You can preview some of the latest, highest rated, and most viewed videos from here. You can also browse the entire catalog from the "Scenes" index. You are allowed up to ten free video clips; after that, clicking takes you to the join page.
As a member, you can view all the videos listed in seven different categories under the content heading Web Videos. Although it may seem that the site has too many sections to it and lacks a single index which brings together all videos in a unified list, it's important to remember that you're getting to stream and download video scenes from DVDs made "back in the day" as well as video updates just completed and posted in the current week.
There is also a list of categories, like condomless, uniforms, hairy, or double penetrations that group videos from all the different areas. This will help cut through some of the large selection to help you find exactly what you are looking for.
Depending on where you are on the site, you may see either "Behind the Scenes" or "Makin' It" as a menu item; they both lead to the same section of behind the scenes content.
The Men and the Action
Bjorn finds stunning, masculine, muscular, men from around the globe, aged 19-35, with breathtaking faces and bodies -- and because they're from Europe you will rarely have seen them anywhere else. On DVD, Bjorn's classic titles include "Jungle Heat", "Carnival In Rio", "Island Fever", "Manwatcher" and many more. Over the years he has produced and directed more than 80 beautifully filmed DVD releases, telling lustful, exotic and romantic stories that are among the best-loved in porn.
The DVDs, and to a lesser extent the other videos, have been shot in gorgeous locations all over the world, from Rio to Montreal, from Manhattan to Madrid. The web episodes are more modest in scope and shot mostly indoors depicting a fairly conventional sex scene between two guys. The key is his models, who are always hot, fit, and very well equipped.
Playback quality of the videos varies from fair to excellent, depending on when the video was originally made, the bitrate it has been rendered at and whether you stream or download (streams weren't as smooth as downloads). The lighting is excellent and the various camera angles and combination of medium and closeup shots seem natural and fluid as they follow and capture the action in a sensual and intuitive manner. There's also a sexy and romantic soundtrack accompanying many of the videos.
Your monthly memberships get you the following exclusive content:
Web Series 225 hardcore videos.
Casting Couch: 405 hardcore web episodes averaging 15 minutes in length. These are updated once weekly.
Makin' it / Behind the Scenes: 275 behind-the-scenes and photo shoot videos from the sets of Kristen Bjorn. Updated once per week.
Movie Scenes: 390 scenes from Kristen Bjorn DVDs.
These total almost 1300 video scenes available for streaming or download. There are also 150 bonus scenes in the "Other Studios" section. Although updates are not dated, the site appears to be updating two to three times a week.
Note there's a daily download limit of ten videos. There is also a "Purchase Digital Copy" offer on every video, even for members; as a member, you can ignore this and just download as per normal.
Screens: The site is optimized for smaller screens. Higher bitrate videos shot in HD look good on a TV-sized screen.
Image and Other Content
The Kristen Bjorn image galleries are very high quality. There are approximately 488 sets of images found in the "Galleries" section, of which just 65 are video capture galleries. These are divided into Solo Model Layouts, Group Model Layouts, Movie Stills and Behind The Scenes. These pics will display for you at sizes ranging from 800 x 540pixels to 540 x 350 pixels in size.
The site offers a member forum and a download-to-own feature for both individual scenes and current or classic DVD releases, though many of these are included with your membership.
In the "Other Studios" section there are 150 bonus scenes from other sites, including Falcon, Raging Stallion, Titan and Lucas Kazan.
You'll definitely appreciate the roster of absolutely stunning international models that populate the scenes from iconic Kristen Bjorn DVDs and the web exclusive videos though the video quality varies. You can now download and keep up to ten scenes per day. In the end, this high quality studio site delivers many hours of blazing sex that will keep you wanting more.
