The people behind the site Amateur Boyfriend make this claim: "The first site where real amateur gay men share their private pictures & videos." Having been on the Internet for eons (even back when my computer was chiseled from a rock and emails were a series of 1's and 0's chiseled into a stone slab and carried by pterodactyls following a network of interconnected vines), I know that dudes posting naked pics of themselves is as old as sin, even if it's not the original one.
AmateurBoyfriend also claims that its footage comes from social networking sites where explicit content is banned. I'm not sure who is crazy enough to try that, but most of what you'll see here would face banning if someone tried. Some of the nudity though isn't more explicit than what you'd find on a gay dating site dedicated to hookups between horny members - at least the men here have amateur appeal.
The 168 videos are mostly poor in quality. Whether you download them in Windows Media or MP4 files, or stream them in Flash, you're generally going to find them blurry and pixelated. I did manage to find a few better-looking flicks that were more the exception than the rule. It's a shame because I saw some truly hot scenes. As far as updating goes, nothing is dated, but the numbers suggest three updates a month.
Even if they are supposed to be average dudes, you won't be seeing average-sized cocks! I became quite mesmerized by a scene with a rather long (albeit not overly thick) pole being repeatedly plunged deep into a tight, young butthole. There was a certain rhythmic grace even when at certain points the dick appeared to miss its super-slick target before easily sliding in without a helping hand.
You will also find 72 photo sets and quality-wise they're not that impressive, although a few fell into the high-res size. Most of the time you're going to see self-shot pics done in the mirror with a digital camera or cellphone. It's easy to imagine that these dudes are shooting themselves shirtless or fully nude so that they can add pics to some hook-up site's profile. I like that you'll see some hung twinks and muscular jocks, as well as guys with average bods and rods.
You get a bunch of bonus sites, but only two are gay: Gay Banned Videos and My Gay Sex Tube. And I was able to download some much better-quality vids from one of the sites. All the same, I never like to recommend any site based on bonus content alone and I am not about to make an exception here. The quality on Amateur Boyfriend just isn't high enough for me to get excited about.
