Next Door Studios will ring a bell for some of you. After all, it's the name behind a lot of fantastic gay porn, both online and on DVD. In its earliest days, this production house featured mostly amateur talent, but nowadays it isn't generally true of this network.
Next Door Casting might be the one real exception. Despite my initial skepticism, its fresh-faced performers are nervous enough on camera that they may very well be inexperienced. Otherwise, though many are gay-for-pay players, most of the men on NextDoorStudios are pornstars.
Moreover, when you feast your eyes on the 3,387 videos, you'll realize that they're anything but amateur productions. And it's not just because nearly 2,200 of the newer movies are in Full HD or even 4K for some of them, but also because the production values are high. At least it's true of anything newer than, say, a decade ago - some of the very earliest content from sites like Tommy D XXX and Stroke That Dick isn't as professionally shot.
To be honest, those sites don't interest me the most. I find some of the newer additions more interesting, like Next Door Raw. Yes, part of the attraction is the bareback sex, but that's only because the action on the other sites is sometimes clinical or sterile - some of these gay-for-pay pornstars have been known to simulate the penetration. They've also started to include some bareback action here and there, but condoms are used more often than not.
The 3,316 photo galleries often have high-res images. There are some truly beautiful specimens on here and I love that when I find a guy with a hot bod, handsome face and big throbbing cock, I can download his gallery in a Zip file. Many of the guys are white with little body hair. Besides occasionally finding a hairier man, as well as twinks and twunks on Next Door Twink, thanks to sites like Next Door Ebony, you'll also encounter men of color.
As far as the interface is concerned, you can browse just the videos or just the photos, and updates from all the sites or just one. You can rate, comment on and track your favorites - both the scenes and performers. Not only can you sort the content and use tags, but doing a basic search pulls up some advanced options alongside the results that will help you really pinpoint what you want. The pagination can feel a bit limited at times, but all the usability tools compensate for it.
Some sites aren't updating at all, but the network is still growing multiple times per week. They've added 18 scenes this month, which is nothing to sneeze at - cum over, maybe, but not sneeze. Next Door Studios offers outstanding gay porn with exceptionally hot men in incredible productions.
