Hidden Gay Cams is one of those portal sites that link to a surprisingly huge amount of bonus material. I must say that even after returning to it long after our initial review, I still find that it reeks of amateur style as far as the layout goes. There's just a hodgepodge of links and the quality is equally inconsistent. That also seems unlikely to change, as they are no longer updating.
The video section on HiddenGayCams is a real mess to count. Nevertheless, for our purposes I would say there are about 93 videos. However, I need to explain that these are a mix of about five DVD titles, a number of smooth, inexperienced amateur full-length scenes and short stand-alone clips, as well as many clips of varying lengths.
These clips cover everything from motel spy cams to Mardi Gras street sexcapades to general voyeur scenes. Overall, you can mostly expect below-average playback, although you can also find some that are poor in quality as well as some that come in HD. There's quite a mish-mash of file types even if most come in Windows Media format, because you'll also find AVIs, RealPlayer and QuickTime clips.
You can check out around 142 photo galleries, many of which have high-res images, but they are also not ideally organized. Sometimes the same set of pics will be posted two or three times with various sizes of pics in each. There are also many sets that simply have vid caps and I've tried my best not to count any of those. There aren't any thumbnails, just a series of text links that vaguely describe what each set entails.
You'll be glad to know that you get lots of extras. You'll find a feed with footage from circuit parties from around the world. There are bonus streaming-only clips (but these are merely tiny samples from a pay-per-view site) and you get dirty stories and a whole bunch of bonus sites. More significant than any other of the individual bonus sites is your access to Bad Puppy, a mega-site with literally thousands of photo sets and videos, many of which are exclusive.
Hidden Gay Cams has a decent amount of nonexclusive content, but between the messy organization, lack of updates and vids that are low in quality, it's really not worth joining. If you insist, just keep in mind that if you dig through the mediocrity long enough you can find a few hidden gems.
