At first, I wasn't sure that Bait Buddies was going to be the genuine article. However, there are reasons to believe that at least some of the scenes are the real deal. It helps, for example, when there's a woman present for part of the shoot for baiting purposes. Then again, sometimes they promise the dude that one will be there, but then she never shows up. Now what's a pornstar wannabe who's already revved up in anticipation supposed to do?
I can kind of believe that any man, even a straight one, who dreams of being in porn is probably a bit of a narcissist, besides being an exhibitionist. So I can accept that the idea of being admired by another dude will get him off despite his orientation. Then, of course, there's the bait on BaitBuddies. We're talking hot pornstars, like young, lean jock Zach Alexander and hairy beefy Girth Brooks with his big, meaty cock. Who wouldn't swing both ways for these guys?
Updates are weekly and you'll find 299 videos that bring you mostly good-quality playback. You can also check out the vids directly from your mobile device and grab a Windows Media file. Streaming the movies in a Flash player is also an option and some appear to be in HD.
I checked out a few of the "straight" performers in my handy dandy search engine. Some of them tend to have similar performance histories as the guy who played "the bait," so I think most of these dudes are experienced gay-for-pay studs. The main difference is that the boys doing the baiting have worked in the biz enough to be instantly recognizable to anyone into gay porn, while the supposedly 100 percent straight ones are more obscure actors.
You'll also find 299 photo galleries and if you download them in their Zip files you'll find that most have crisp, high-res images. I loved these hunks, because even if some of them are pornstars, their in-shape bods have a natural appeal. Yes, there are twinks and jocks, as well as a few beefy bodybuilders, but overall they look healthy - not too skinny or too pumped up.
You get a bonus site with DVDs to stream, as well as video feeds and Flash games. Honestly, though, you don't really need these bonuses, because Bait Buddies brings you more than enough material to make it worth joining. They may or may not being turning some straight guys gay, but either way it will get you off.
