Gay Hoopla seems an odd name, given that the usual definition of hoopla is making a big fuss. But as we discovered, this collection of very good looking young amateurs in over 1300 videos is worth a bit of a fuss.

Tour

The Gay Hoopla tour is relatively straightforward and mirrors the actual site perfectly. You'll find all the "Latest Updates" and "Newest Models" on the homepage, and you can also browse the full collection of videos or models using the menu at the top of the page. You'll only get to view several of the very latest free clips though.

Usability

The site is very easy to get around with two main menu items: "Videos" and "Models." There is no search option, but videos do include basic category tags like "hairy," "tattoo" and "fucking" to help you find specific content. The model roster is also cross-referenced to all the videos a particular model has starred in.

The first few videos listed on the main video page are for upcoming releases, even though they are not identified as such (check the release date).

The Men and the Action

When we first reviewed Gay Hoopla, it was best known for its daily interactive webcam sessions with different models. Although many of the site's actual videos are from these sessions, the site stopped doing the cam shows a while back.

The guys are very good looking and nicely built college jock types. Some are truly breathtaking and appear new to the porn world. Newer videos often start with the cameraman interviewing the model or models, before the action takes place. These single camera scenes have a competent, yet homemade style to them, and all of the action and cum shots are caught. You'll see videos that introduce a new model, regular solo and self shot solo videos, and hardcore videos that pair up guys who have good chemistry.

Many older videos are archived cam shows and are often shot in the guy's own place so there are a variety of settings and pretty basic camera work. A good part of the show is spent responding to fans' questions and comments. Over the course of approximately an hour, the performer gradually strips off his clothes and starts to stroke -- or poke -- himself, all the while paying attention to the fan chatter.

Video Details

Newer and non-camshow videos are available in high definition and offer a clean, clear image. The archived cam shows are, obviously, lower quality overall.

Starting October 2018, the site said it will be relying on a new, professional production firm, so some of the videos may look a little different.

The site currently boasts over 1300 videos. This is impressive, but remember: most of these are archived footage from live cam shows, and are often solos. The site is being updated about once every three or four days.

Videos stream in browser with a default size of 960x540 pixels. There is no choice of qualities, though you can toggle to full-screen.

As for downloads (if you choose a download membership), the archived camshow have a maximum size of 800x450 pixels, with a low bitrate. However, some of the non-camshow videos are 1280x720p (2400 kbps) and the newest have a default size of 1920x1080p (8000 kbps.)


Image and Other Content

There are now approximately 225 digital image galleries, averaging 20 pictures each. Most recorded webcam shows do not include an image gallery.

Summing Up

Gay Hoopla has been able to attract a very hot and fresh group of young performers. The way the site reveals the models though the archived camshows and interviews, along with an amateur style of videography, are a surprisingly winning combination.
