Why are gays so into straight guys? Maybe it has something to do with them spending their youth hiding in the closet - and watching heterosexuals going gay-for-pay is like payback. (Or gayback?) At any rate one thing's for sure - the men on Active Duty are hot no matter their sexual orientation. So if the straight thing is your thing, there's an added dose of hotness coming from these hotties.
ActiveDuty has been around for a long time and it's always been a labor of love. The content was maybe a tad amateur in the beginning, both in terms of the performers and the production values, but over the years the man behind the scenes, Dink Flamingo, has really honed his craft to bring us better and more professional material. The current incarnation of his site is the slickest one yet.
However, the collection hasn't lost its heart. It's still all about muscular guys, often tattooed and pretty much always with buzz cuts, who are formerly, or currently, soldiers, sailors or marines. If you've got a military fetish then you've come to the right place. In the earlier shoots, there are a lot more solo scenes and they always make the straight-boy sell more plausible. Offer almost any man some cash to masturbate on camera and his ego will be stroked whether he thinks chicks or guys are going to be watching.
However, as time progressed, Pink finessed more than just nudity and masturbation out of his performers. There's also a lot of hardcore sex here. Oh, and just to be clear, I don't simply mean handjobs and blowjobs, but rather raunchy man-on-man anal penetration, including bareback and group action.
They add a new video (these days it normally comes with pics, too) two or three times a week and you'll already find 1,205 videos. I should mention the "scenes" section includes all the updates, even the ones that you can also find in the "war chest" section - which might make it look at first like there are more videos than there are. The newer ones are in Full HD, many more are in standard HD, and the older ones are good in quality or lower. You often have multiple MP4s to choose from.
In the case of the photo section, you'll find 513 photo sets when you go through the over 70 pages - the same issue happens when browsing the flicks, too. You can only move through these a few pages at a time unless you jump to the first or the last page, so it gets tedious. Some of the pic sets have vid caps mixed in, but many are almost as large as the actual photos. All the sets can be downloaded in Zip files and viewed in an automatic slideshow.
There aren't any bonus sites, but there is one free full-length scene to stream from another site from the same parent company - which you can then join at a discount. There is a DVD store that lists some of the Active Duty DVDs that were created from the videos here, but why pay more for hardcopy versions that you can already find by browsing the DVD section here? Still, all these minor issues aside, I find it easy to recommend this gay site. Also, you can follow them on Facebook or Twitter for news about their latest updates.
