Intro

When I first got to Randy Blue, I was expecting a solo model gay site, maybe starring the hunky young man who is featured there today. Then I saw his name was actually Steven Gray and that there were actually a lot of different men on the site. It turns out that this is more of a hot guy collection! The site offers up hundreds of gorgeous young men in solo and gay pictures and videos.


The Pros

  Exclusive material.

All of the material here is original. They shoot all the scenes themselves and offer some great behind the scenes info, as well. Everything from the model biographies to the two blogs just gives the site so much personality. By actually creating the content themselves, they do a great job at sticking to the theme of the site. The fact that you're not going to find these hot scenes or guys on other sites, is also important to note.

  Good-looking scenes.

Both the photos and videos are high quality. The photos are 1024x768, which isn't huge but they're definitely sharp. The videos play at up to 2000k and are 960x540. The videos are really nicely done. If you prefer streaming, the Flash clips are also very sharp and high quality.

  Large collection.

There's a lot to enjoy here! There are currently 408 models in 675 videos and 1,155 galleries. That's a big site! They've been updating steadily since 2003 and in that time they've managed to put together a very large, well-rounded site.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Good model descriptions. Each guy has a long paragraph detailing his on-camera experience and just talking about how gorgeous he is in general. Makes for some good reading!
  • Plenty of viewing options. Each video can be played in your browser using Flash with four quality settings. They can also be downloaded to Windows Media Player with four quality options, as well.
  • The site design is clean and attractive. The colors look good and there's just the right balance of text and graphics.
  • Weekly live shows! Watch and chat with all your favorite Randy Blue models.

The Cons

  Limited download access.

While you can download the videos here, you aren't able to access them once your membership to Randy Blue expires. This took me by surprised because there was no pop-up DRM box. However, click on the file properties and you'll find that access to the file is only granted for a month.

  Room for a few more browse/search tools.

Getting around the site is easy enough, and they definitely have the basics covered with categories for all the models, videos, and photos, but it would be great combine those tools. I'd love to be able to search for both "smooth" and "tattoos". Or to be able to browse top rated scenes. It's not a huge problem, but they could put together a more advanced search tool.

Minor Negatives:

  • No zip downloads are available for the photos.
  • Had to download and install a program called "Belator" to view the Flash scenes. They looked good in the program, I just didn't appreciate the extra step.
  • Not true high definition videos. Though the highest quality wmvs are labeled "HD", at 960x580 they don't quite qualify. They still look good, as noted above, but they don't actually fit the "high definition" definition.

Bottom Line

A well-built site of hot men in quality content, with mostly minor site faults.

I was really impressed and entertained with Randy Blue. The guys are HOT, the content quality is very good, and there's so much of it to enjoy. This is a really sexy collection. I loved the personality behind the site in particular. The restricted video access was probably the biggest disappointment. That along with not having actual HD content. However, overall this is a really solid site, well worth the $25 a month cost. This is a great site for anyone out to admire some well-built hotties in good quality content.
