Review date: April 2018
Dominic Ford is notable for cutting edge formats like 4K HD, virtual reality and especially 3D videos. The site has well crafted movies that are offered on an array of platforms. Dominic Ford's videos featuring masculine younger men are sure to satisfy those looking for porn they can reach out and grab. .
The tour homepage highlights recent and featured movies and models. Click on some of these images and you'll find an explicit clip, or sometimes there's a small image gallery, but sometimes you'll just be sent to the join page. There are complete indexes for "Movies" and "Models" but you won't find much at all in the way of free preview clips and very often you will be just sent right to the sign-up page without being given additional information about a scene.
The site's design and navigation is perfectly fine, if not inspired. The homepage highlights a few recent episodes and models, but about a third of the page is devoted to a live cam ad. There's a navigation bar with links to the Movies, the Models, the Store, and to the Live Cams (which are not included). On the Movies page you'll find a bunch of topical tags that you can use to select particular activities among the videos. Across the bottom of every page and inserted in the middle of each movie index page are ads for live cams.
The Men and the Action
The guys of Dominic Ford are a mix of amateur and more experienced porn performers in the 20-30 age range. From smoother guys to tattooed muscle studs, along with a number of Europeans, they look even more impressive in the 3D environment. You'll also find informative model descriptions and several in-depth video interviews. The models are good at what they do, and always give the impression that they're fully invested in the action.
The downloads on this site have excellent playback quality; while the streams are above average quality. As standard 2-D gay porn videos, the scenes are very good: well lit, nicely shot and artfully edited. The 3-D videos have a hyper-real depth that really does heighten, rather than distract from, the sex.
Dominic Ford currently hosts almost 450 exclusive videos with an average length of 20 minutes. We are now seeing a new video and image gallery about every ten days.
Videos will stream and download in MP4 or Quicktime (MOV) format as well as mobile formats. Over half the Dominic Ford original videos are also available in 3D.
The streams play in-browser sized at 960x540 pixels. These have a "skip to" feature that displays small vidcaps of the action at different points in the video.
The MP4 downloads are available at three bitrates as well as your choice of 2D or 3D. Those added since December, 2009 are available in "full HD" with a bitrate of 4,000 kbps and screen size of 1920x1080 pixels. Top size for the oldest videos is 960x540. Screens: The site is fully mobile compatible, so you can stream on handsets and tablets. The HD videos look great on a large (TV-sized) screen, and the newest 4K versions are available for Ultra HD televisions. And if you have a Roku box, Dominic Ford has a channel for TV viewing.
Image and Other Content
Every video on Dominic Ford is accompanied by a selection of images; the number of digital photos and video captures varies a lot but an average would be around 30. In addition, each model profile is accompanied by an image gallery with an average size of 20 images. In the case of the site's 3-D videos, some of the images are in 3-D. While there's no slideshow, you can download a set as a zip file.
Dominic Ford manages to go beyond being a 3D novelty experience by making sure that the 2D videos are also of very good quality. This means that watching these generally masculine younger guys will work for you no matter which mode you view it in. Also, by using themes and tongue-in-cheek story lines the site has fun -- and so do we.
