Bad Puppy was one of the founding fathers of gay Internet porn and launched way back on May 17, 1995. It has been online ever since and has undergone several redesigns over the years, but until recently it always felt a bit behind the times and seemed like a hodgepodge content-wise. But all that has changed finally.
The newest reiteration of BadPuppy is heavily streamlined and offers extremely simplified navigation. You can still check out the old (or what they prefer to call "classic") version, with content spread over multiple sections, but I am going to stick with describing the new look that simply lists models by date stretching back to 1997 and they all seem to all have both videos and photos.
When it comes to the 1,146 videos they can be streamed and downloaded in MP4s. They all come in Full HD, but some of the older ones look average given that they're not nearly as sharp as their newer counterparts. Clearly some flicks weren't filmed in high-definition, so the footage is merely remastered.
The material gives you a variety of performers. Most are white guys, but you also get Asians, Latinos and other men of color. Whether you like them cut or uncut. you will also see average-looking amateurs, young, hung twinks, muscular jocks, hairy bears and older daddies. You will also discover lots of well-known pornstars, like Denis Reed, Steven Ponce, Josh Long and Rod Stevens.
You can suggest keyword tags and I wonder if that would help improve the advanced search. After all, it was easy to find the bareback scenes or even the bit of fetish and leather action on offer, but searching "black" returned a mishmash of often unrelated results and doing the same with "interracial" got zero results even though there are scenes showing ebony-on-white hookups.
When it comes to the 1,446 photo sets, they can all be downloaded in Zip files and in some cases you will find that they contain some high-res pics even when the images online aren't quite as impressive. You also have an automatic slideshow option with adjustable speed.
They've added seven updates in the last 30 days and you still get lots of additional content. For one thing, there are loads of video feeds to check out, but then you've also got bonus sites, the most notable of which is Club Amateur USA. The other bonuses aren't such hot commodities, because they're not actively updating, but they still bring you more studs in hardcore gay action.
I am sure there will be diehard fans who miss the old version of the site, although even the last time we visited, the design had changed significantly. There is less content than we previously found, but I think that some of it shows up on that bonus site I linked to. Personally, I find the new design much more user-friendly. So, all in all, Bad Puppy is of the oldest gay porn sites and it's still worth checking out.
