When I read the sitename Island Studs, it conjured up images of men from the Caribbean islands with caramel and cocoa-colored skin. However, the island (well, there's more than just the one) in question is Hawaii and although there are some men of color, a lot of the hunks here are blue-collar white guys.
I have to admit that I immediately liked what I saw on IslandStuds, because these look like real amateur men rather than aspiring or gay-for-pay pornstars. There's a wholesome quality to these hunks and though many of them are straight, the guy behind the camera doesn't seem obsessed by that fact. Any conversations and/or interviews seem lighthearted and relaxed, not forced.
It also isn't a site where you're listening to the negotiations during the shoot. It seems like it's decided well before the camera rolls and personally I prefer everything being squared away before filming. It makes the footage and images more organic, even if often the guys are clearly going through a series of planned poses, masturbating and/or pissing on cue.
There is some gay action to be had among the scenes too. Well, often it's pretty innocent stuff, like mutual masturbation without really any touching. However, you'll see at least a couple of blowjobs. Sometimes two or more guys are together without anything sexual happening. It's just casual nudity as they toss a football outdoors or go surfing naked.
I have to say that the nudism is really hot whether it's two dudes or just one. The cameraman really knows what he's doing and you can't help but admire their bodies in motion. Like sometimes he'll ask a model to do some chores around his property so that you can see his muscles straining a bit at the effort and watch his sweet buttcheeks wiggle just a little bit as he walks around.
These studies of the male form are captured in 345 videos and many of the newer ones are downloadable in HD or Full HD, although several of the newest can only be streamed. New flicks are usually added weekly along with their corresponding pics, but there are several photo sets without videos. Often you'll find high-res images in the 350 galleries, but there aren't any Zip files.
There are many cute boys, some slightly older men and even a few daddies to be found here. You've got lots of hairy guys, but those who are into smooth-skinned specimens won't be disappointed either. The quality is high and there's a good amount of regularly updated content to be had. In the end, Island Studs is easy to recommend.
