Naked Sword is a bit of a legend in the gay porn world, it is one of the biggest video sites around with over thousands of DVDs that are full length and that come from some of the best studios. There is a new update every day, at least one, there are loads of different categories, all kinds of gay hardcore is covered, from twinks to bears and dads, and the quality is just fine.
You get a good idea of what to expect from the tour just by wandering around for a while. Then you hit the sign up page and decide what offer to take. I found the prices given to me were in Euros, hence the slightly odd amounts, but there is nothing over the top or unusual about the sign up fees. There is a seven day trial but you may as well go for a full on membership as you are going to need a year or three to see everything here. Naked Sword is a site you want to have in your bookmarks ready to click into at a moments notice as no matter what kind of hardcore you are in the mood for, they will have it.
The content here is a mix of mainly released DVDs from various studios, and some Naked Sword originals. These include behind the scenes footage and scenes from on-going series that they make, or have made. They seem to favour the more experienced porn star in these movies, with good looking and well-built guys of various ages and looks, so you will find twinks, jocks, studs, cowboys, older guys and some names you will probably recognise. These scenes, like all the others, are stream only and came with only a choice of Flash or Silverlight. There were no choices of resolution or quality, so what you see is what you get. I had no trouble streaming them quickly on a 2Mb connection though, the quality was quite acceptable even at full screen.
When you are on a viewing page you can also click thru to any other related videos, you can add things to a favourites area and there are some details about the scene, director and a description. There are also adverts for all kinds of other things down the page.
If you want to search out a star from the huge list then there is an area for this with a model index of Naked Sword Men. Names here include Dominic Pacifico, a guy with his own site elsewhere, Austin Wilde and Rod Daily who also work for other top studios and companies. So, big names, and some very big guys alongside lesser well-known porn names, but equally as horny models.
You can bring up a list of all studios as well and find that you have offerings here from such popular names as Bel Ami, Colt, Falcon and Treasure Island, and then some lesser known names such as Hairy Studs Video, Liquid London and Vinoex; at least there were some names Id never heard of and it's always fun discovering new talent. There's plenty to see here and lot of new things to uncover. You click a studio and you get pages of box covers showing their full titles, or single scenes depending on what is available. You are also able to search by themes, or categories if you like and there's a drop down list for this too so navigation is easy.
So, you could say there is nothing remarkable about his site, it is simple a video theatre where you have to stay as a member I order to watch the films. But then when you think about how much content there is, how much variety and how many guys appear in all kinds of sexy scenes, it is actually a very remarkable site and one that keeps building. There's an update schedule at the top of your home page to prove it.
Older movies are not as high a quality as more recent ones of course, and some can be a bit grainy. But modern scenes are fine and although there is only one choice for viewing resolution, it seems to stream quickly and well and you get the best quality that is available.
The site advertises over 13,000 scenes; it's impossible to count accurately as the content count increases every day, but suffice to say: loads of varied videos to watch. There are many scenes, with good options to help you find what you want, and lists of stars and studios to help as well.
This is a big site, it has been around a long time, it is solid and safe and not going away any time soon, so a long-term membership is worth it. The quality is as good as they can make it without slowing everything down, there are good search and sort options and plenty of details. You have a model index, a studio list and there are also daily updates.
There is only one way to watch the movies and that is streaming by Flash or Silverlight. There are no downloads and no choice of viewing resolution or speed, which may be an issue for slow connections. There are no galleries either and the VOD and Live Guys links take you to sites where you have to pay more to fully use them.
My prices were given in Euros which made the amounts a bit odd, so check that out but the prices asked for were not too expensive, not when you consider how much content there is here. Your best option is to go for the full year and keep the site bookmarked so you can easily watch a scene or full DVD whenever you want.
Up and down: Down because there are streams only and then only a limited choice for viewing them, Up because there is so much to watch, so much variety and so many updates coming all the time. You don't need to join several hardcore sites you only need to join Naked Sword and you will have thousands of scenes at your disposal giving you months of watching.
