- no bonus sites

Alternadudes is a real breath of fresh air for me. I get so tired of seeing the typical gay clones, those hairless nubile guys who look as if they could be molded from plastic, but here you get punks, skaters, rockers and other amateur guys with an alternative flair in what they wear and how they live. I appreciate that all orientations (straight, gay and bi) are represented.
Alternadudes was acquired by a company that owns a network of amateur straight sites a while back, but I am happy to report that it still has the unique appeal that it has always had. It looks better than ever these days and it's got a pretty user-friendly interface. I'll go into more detail on that later, though.
First, let me tell you that they post new flicks almost every week and the straightforward video section now contains 258 movies. They can all be streamed in an embedded player and also downloaded in different MP4 formats. You're able to enjoy full-length versions of vids, but they're made available in shorter clips as well. Most of the flicks are HD.
The photo section holds 258 picture sets. The galleries are often comprised of big, high-res images. Just keep in mind that you need to click somewhere on the pic when it's displayed in the embedded slideshow to see the full-sized photo. Some pictures are crisper than others, but that's an issue of lighting and sometimes they've been altered for a more artistic effect. You can download the galleries that catch your eye in Zip files.
I honestly could fall in love with any one of these guys, so the more I can see of each one, the happier I am. Many of them have long hair, tattoos and piercings. Some of them have an emo look, so they sport dark eye makeup. One even wears "demon" contact lenses. I also appreciate that while many are young, there are a few mature guys too. Most importantly, for my tastes at least, there's lots of intact body hair, although you will see some twinks as well.
Now, let's go back to the rather extensive navigational features and let me tell you that you have the ability to save your favorites, leave comments and rate content. You can sort the video and photo sections by members' ratings, date and name/title of shoot. You will not only find keyword tags listed for each scene, but you will also find that there's an advanced search, so it's quite easy to find what you like. You can also browse for action via the model index.
You also get access to a whole lot of bonus video feeds that cover a wide variety of gay categories. That's terrific, but I don't need to rely on the bonuses here to give this site my recommendation. Alternadudes has retained its alternative style that makes for some unique all-male HD porn.
