Cadinot (pronounced ˈkad-ən-ˈnō) sounds like a fine French wine or maybe a brand of brandy from the Cognac region of France. However, it's in fact a name that some of you may know already given that Jean-Daniel Cadinot was a celebrated gay pornographic producer-director known for injecting realism into his films.
This realism came not only from his own sexual experiences with other men, but also it reflected things that had happened to the performers in his movies. This late, great artist who sometimes used the pseudonym Tony Dark is famously quoted as saying that actors "do not portray things that are imposed on them by me, but things they like to do themselves."
Unfortunately, his spirit strong, but his flesh weak, he passed away in 2008 from a heart attack. On Cadinot a message from him was posthumously published with the words: "An erect phallus is a symbol of life…" So, with that in mind, this collection celebrates life. And it celebrates it in a big way with all the big, hard cocks on display here.
With content covering the '80s, '90s and '00s, there's no denying that some of these man-on-man blowjobs, deep anal penetrations and threesomes have a more classic rather than contemporary feel, but whatever the era, this man knew how to land the hottest men. Lots of young and hung studs with beautiful faces, jock bodies and thick, often uncut, dicks, many times with masculine, even straight, appeal fill the 1,042 videos here. There aren't any photos though.
There is an unlimited streaming-only membership option, but it's pricey, so most folks will probably prefer to go the VOD route, which is more heavily promoted here anyway. When you stream the vids, they look decent for the most part. You can also use up more tokens (they call them "tickets") to acquire good-quality downloadable versions.
Just keep in mind that some of the scenes are sourced from older footage, so age may play a factor in how crisp some of it looks. Like an interracial scene between a black construction worker and his white coworker filmed in a dark corner of a construction site is not going to be the clearest or brightest. Whereas some of the vintage action in all-white rooms can seem almost overly lit.
If for some reason you want to see content shot by other directors, but with similar actors and action, you can also check out other VOD sites from the same company, including Citebeur, Domi Addict and Cazzo. Your tickets will work the same across the entire network.
It's not clear how often they're updating, but I can tell you that they haven't posted all of Cadinot's films yet. Also, his longtime collaborator has picked up the torch and carries on his work. Regardless of the date and fate of future updates, there's already so much to see in this large collection of beautifully made gay pornos at a reasonable VOD rate.
