Thug Boy seems to be following a growing trend in gay porn, which is more black porn with "thugs": hot black dudes with masculine appeal and a streetwise gangsta style. Some sites in this niche have performers who really look rough around the edges. Sometime they tout their guys as living on the down-low. The collection here does include some straight studs, but that really isn't the focus as many performers are gay or bisexual.
ThugBoy also surpasses many of its competitors when it comes to how much exclusive content it offers, not to mention the quality of it. You can download 483 videos and they bring you mostly high-def playback when they include a Windows Media option. Most of them also have MP4s to stream and download, although some come in QuickTime files. The newer scenes are only in MP4, but their bit rates aren't as high as the WMVs.
Around a third of the scenes are solo, while the others focus on hardcore with lots of couples and some threesomes. There are intense blowjobs and lots of hard-pounding anal sex. What really gets me off is how they maintain an amateur charm, but are so near perfect that at times it's almost painful for me to watch - at least if I keep my pants done up.
You've got light-skinned hunks, caramel cuties and solid chunks of dark chocolate. There are lots tattoos and beautiful schlongs and bubble butts, not to mention handsome faces.
You can download 145 photo galleries in Zip files and these accompany the solo shoots. I'll admit that I don't always appreciate spreads with just one guy, but these bad boys are the sort of men I can't get enough of and they command the lens quite well on their own. I also appreciate that the hardcore footage unfolds more naturally without the distraction of a second camera flashing away.
Updates appear to be once every 10 days, although nothing is dated. Even though there aren't any bonus sites, you get access to some fun extras, like wallpaper and a memory game. You can also take part in a chat room with other guys looking to hook up and it has video capabilities. Overall, Thug Boy is reasonably priced and offers HD vids, so there's really no reason not to join.
