I don't usually believe a site like Bait Buddies is the genuine article. However, there are reasons to believe that at least some of the scenes are the real deal. It helps the believability, for example, when there's a woman present for part of the shoot for baiting purposes. Then again, sometimes they promise a 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 245 videos that bring you mostly good-quality playback. Despite labeling all of the best MP4s as coming in HD, only some of them do indeed have what we recognize as high-def stats. You can also check out the vids directly from your mobile device. There's also a Windows Media format and you can stream the MP4s in a Flash player.
I did check out some of the "straight" performers in my handy dandy search engine. Some of them tend to have similar performance histories as the guys 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 enough in the biz to be instantly recognizable to anyone into gay porn, while the supposedly 100 percent straight ones are more obscure actors.
You'll find 245 photo galleries and if you download them in their Zip files then you'll find that most have crisp, high-res images. I love 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 one bonus site that brings you DVD scenes to stream, as well as video feeds, Flash games and you can access some of this additional content from your mobile device. Honestly, though, you don't really need these bonuses, because Bait Buddies brings you more than enough content to make it worth joining. They may or may not being turning some straight guys gay, but either way it will get you off without a doubt.
