It used to be called Alpha Male Fuckers. However, after winning a Hot Rods British Porn Award for Best Studio of the Year, they decided to rebrand it to the more straightforward Alpha Males. They feel as if the change in moniker reflects the strength and staying power of this production house in an industry that has been struggling these last few years.
Of course, the name AlphaMales is also suitable based on the men it features. They boast a host of manly specimens. We're talking body and/or facial hair, shaved heads, tattoos and piercings. There are loads of burly musclemen and even those who are slim are still muscular jocks, not skinny twinks, for the most part. Although you will see some dudes in their 20s, lots more are in their 30s and even 40s.
When making the changeover they promised to continue to deliver the same production values and worthwhile viewing options. So when you check out any of the 302 videos you'll notice that a good number of the flicks offer excellent-quality playback when you stream them in an embedded player. I like that they don't stream automatically, because it can slow down browsing depending on your connection speed.
You used to be able to download the movies, but nowadays you're stuck streaming them. You always get at least two quality settings to choose from. A lot of vids come in Flash, but the newer ones come in an MP4 format.
There's an advanced search and you can use keyword tags like bareback, BDSM, cum eating, feet, fisting, pissing and uniforms to find content you'll like. I selected "self-sucking" and even though it had only one result, I enjoyed seeing Kurt Rogers casually bending over to lick his dickhead, which is already slick from the blowjob Darren Robbins is giving him.
Most of the movies come with pictures, but there are a few that don't. There are 296 photo galleries in all and they bring you high-res images that you can download in Zip files. You can also arrange to view the pics in an automatic slideshow that frees up your hands.
There's a bonus section to check out, but once you venture inside, all you see is a message that tells you there are extras on the way. Another section provides you with links to other gay sites, but you can't get access to any of them without paying for a membership. So there isn't actually any bonus content. I guess it's a good thing that new content gets added to the collection weekly.
You could argue that Alpha Males isn't as good as it once was, but it still offers some pretty hot content. You might find the website to be worth your while if you're a macho-man lover, but just remember that you can't download any of the videos.
