Review date: October 2014

Our first review of Cocky Boys in 2008 introduced the site as a well-crafted Los Angeles based newcomer featuring good looking, well known porn stars. A couple of years later two things happened: the site was sold to young porn entreupeneur Jake Jaxon, and it moved to New York City - which turned out to be a game changer. Its popularity soared, and a series of very hot young models began to appear in its updates.

What you see today is a true phenomenon: videos that are beautifully filmed and edited, often with spellbinding story lines and highly charged eroticism that seems to move at a measured pace. There is absolutely nothing like it in the gay porn world. The Cocky Boys focus on quality has yielded impressive results: all the videos are in high-definition and are available in several DRM-free formats, including mobile. There's a talented roster of hot guys and new, exclusive videos are added twice a week, and many actually tell stories along with the sex. The one reservation we have is the cam boys ad that appears above the navigation bar at the bottom of each page.

Tour

The Cocky Boys tour is very revealing, with an explicit preview clip for over half the videos, including the Feature Films, which are more than just porn movies. Start on the non-members homepage and work your way down, checking out the clips for twelve recent episodes. Then hit any page number button and you'll be taken to earlier episodes of the video inventory where you can view an explicit clips. Alternatively, go into the model index ("The Cockyboys") and you can view clips according to the episodes a particular model has starred in. All in all a very good tour.

Usability

The design of the site is state-of-the-art with a flexible width that will fit most any screen. The navigation is clear and intuitive, with lots of large graphics to draw the viewer in. Under a large banner proclaiming New Releases you'll find images for 10 recent episodes. Mouse over an image and a description of the scene will slide up to tempt you with the details of yet another sexy hook-up. Further down the same page you'll get a taste of Most Popular Scenes. Back to the top for the model index and an area you won't want to miss called "Feature Films." While the models are well cross-referenced and there is a general search box, the only category search is by the very minimal topic tags on each video (and why the need to ask users for tag suggestions?)

The Men and the Action

The site has attracted a who's who of hot young porn actors, ranging in age from 18 to 28. The list of past and current "names" is long and impressive, but even among the newbies the thing that ties these guys together is that they're not shy and inexperienced -- you might call them cocky! Some may be young but they fuck like pros, and look great doing it. In the older videos shot in L.A., the settings were at beautiful homes in the Hollywood Hills, around the pool, or in luxurious interiors. The N.Y.C. shoots take a jump in innovation, location, and quality, epitomized by the "Feature Films" - full length videos of forty minutes and up that combine plot points, humor, and sex in everything from horror to reality TV situations.

You'll find guys solo, or in charged up suck, fuck, and rim sessions, sitting on a big toy or getting enthusiastically rimmed, there's even passionate kissing! There is also a good mix of power bottoms, powerful tops and big dicks. That's not to say that the sex is particularly unusual or full of fetishes.The focus is on the guy's personality and on the pairings of models that can generate a lot of heat and chemistry. The model index has stats to keep you informed, the videos have detailed text descriptions, and many include several minutes of interview time.

Video Details

As mentioned above, every video is not just shot in high-definition, but rendered in high-def as well, for overall excellent viewing quality. There is a high degree of clarity and sharpness in these videos, along with great lighting and professional camera work, as we see various angles, poses, and close-ups. Under the new owners, the most recent 330 videos are stunningly shot in various locations using story lines and real cinematic techniques that heighten the erotic appeal. The older, L.A. based videos have slightly less impact. A small concern is that these are only one camera shoots and occasionally the light is not optimum or a cumshot could be better captured.

Over the past year Cocky Boys has been right on time with their twice weekly updates. It now has 619 videos, averaging about 20 minutes in length. So this is a good deal, with two full updates weekly. There is a search function, and there's no DRM on the videos.

The site offers an excellent selection of streaming and download options.

You can stream or download in MP4 format, the topmost of which is "Large HD" (3000 kbps; 1280x720). The embedded player, which starts as soon as you go to a video page, displays the video at 960x540 pixels, which you can upsize to full-screen.

You can also download in Quicktime (MOV) and Windows Media formats in the small, medium, or HD sizes.

Screens: The videos will stream on an iPhone or iPad; just choose the corresponding option under "Watch Movie" and then click the arrow. In addition Cocky Boys does now have a mobile version of its site, easier to navigate if you're using a smartphone; but the upgrade for this option is $5 per month. The highest quality videos look good when streamed to a TV screen.


Image and Other Content

For each video, you'll find complementary images, averaging 35 images per set. These are good quality screen grabs, ranging in size from 1280x720 to 640x480 pixels. In addition, all the videos from the last few years s include a small image gallery averaging 17 digital pictures which is called On Set Images. Zip downloads are available for images in three sizes up to 1600 pixels wide. There's also a slideshow feature.

Summing Up

Cocky Boys serves up a mix of very sexy porn stars and new-to-porn amateurs, all who have distinct personalities and a certain "cocky" attitude, which definitely leads to some intense and memorable scenes often in imaginative, plot-driven videos. The design is fun, the quality of the videos is excellent, the array of video format choices is generous and it really is refreshing to see a site proclaim that sex is something to cherish and enjoy.
