Bel Ami Online is a site that should really need no introduction. Surely everyone has heard of them and knows exactly what to expect when visiting the site? Smooth, hung, young and sexy East and Central European guys in solo and hardcore scenes that are top quality and dreamy. You've got it all here from atmosphere to a forum, from videos to images. There are now even HD and 3D scene to view and collect.
This is the official website of Bel Ami, though you may have seen some of their work on other sites and certainly would have seen some of the DVDs in the shops. When you look at the sign up price here against the amount of content you can aces you can see what a bargain a membership is. There are over 1,000 scenes and then all the photo galleries to view and although the site doesn't put dates on its content (that I could easily see) it does add new content and the site is continually growing.
It's also easy to use. You sign up and sign in and find yourself at the start page where the recent updates are shown. At first the pages and menu might look a bit daunting as there are lots of numbers and arrows. What these are is a way for you to decide how many samples you want to see per page and the arrows are for easier navigation. So you select, say, 24 movies, galleries, models etc. per page and away you go. You access the content via the top menu and then set your preferred viewing options. That's pretty neat. There are also options, within the Sex Scenes area for example, to see scenes from the released movies, scenes that are condom free, ones that are just oral and so on, so some categories are available.
Movies are also arranged as Sex Scenes and Solos, plus some Backstage clips and then the 20 3-D scenes set out separately. The sample pics give you a rough idea of what to expect and come with members' ratings and the names of the models. Click a sample to open a new, floating, pop-up kind of viewing page. Here you can stream the scene in a large player in HD or standard, in most cases, or you can download in various formats. Some scenes have stories, others start straight in. But throughout you get the Bel Ami quality that you expect: great filming, great lighting and great sex.
The guys are all of a kind really, so there's not a lot of variety in the cast, but that's what we want: smooth, hung and with hard cocks, tight asses and the kind of guys that dreams are made of. And one of the best things about the filmmaking is that they achieve a kind of dream-like quality, with great lighting and sound. There is something very special about these films; they are classy and yet not pretentious, they give you great quality erotica movies and hardcore that are probably the best to come out of the European porn industry.
Checking out the photo galleries you find that you can view online or download the sets, there are also rates you can give and you can add things to your favourites area and make up your own store of hot pics and guys, and videos, and come back to them when you're next in the mood. Thumbnails can also be enlarged as the galleries open in a new page where there is a slider for image size; another neat interactive option. When viewing videos you can also make comments and easily see any other related content. You can get further involved in the forum and there is a Settings area where you can decide how you view the site and where you can also change languages. If you should need any help or support then those links are there as well, but I doubt that you will. Everything worked just fine for me.
The quality of the movies improves with newer scenes up to a full HD standard, but it is never bad quality even in the older scenes. You have the top quality filmmaking and models that this company is known for, and the site is also, technically, very high quality in design.
With over 1,000 scenes running for 10 to 20 minutes you have plenty to see. There are many photo galleries with around 50 pics each, not huge but enough and there are also backstage and 3D movies on offer now. Were not sure about updates or regularity of additions but hopefully the site is expanding.
The best things? The models, always dreamy, always fit and smooth and sexy and of a certain type so there are no disappointments. The site is brilliantly interactive and very well designed. The quality is high and you don't get let down. It's also a reasonable price and exclusive and you have a members' forum to use.
Wed like to know more about updates and would like to see dates published. Slower connections may not do so well with the big streams and large download files. The extras appear to be mainly adverts.
The prices showed up for me in Euros, as this is a European company, so watch out for that. But they were good considering the amount of content you get. As some of it comes from DVDs you otherwise have to buy in the shops you get great value and that increases with the longer-term memberships. There don't appear to be any bonuses though.
I knew I was going to have a good time in Bel Ami Online as it has such a good reputation, not only for its quality and its models, but for its good membership price. But what I wasn't expecting was the stylish and interactive members' area and the forum; two more reasons why no one should miss out on this perfect twink, jock and Euro-boy site.
