Review date: September 2017

Randy Blue has been online since 2002 and was once a deservedly dominant force in the gay porn world. The site now offers over 1550 high quality videos showcasing sexy men to thrilling effect in video and images. But there are a lot of prominent upsells for the site's live chat, and more recent videos appear to be contracted out to Europe content providers.

Tour

Randy Blue's tour is somewhat confusing, as it is dominated by live chat ads and calls to purchase individual video downloads. However, there are links on top for the most important areas: Models, Videos, and Photos. Mouse over these and a partial inventory of the contents will pop up; actually click the link to see the entire index and a preview clip from any of the many episodes.

Usability

The site design is colorful, graphically rich and fully responsive to the device your are using. There are large icons throughout the video, photos, and model areas that leave you in no doubt about your viewing options. Models and videos are well cross-referenced and topical access is found in the "Tags" section. However, as mentioned, there are endless upsells inside the site to chat.

The Men and the Action

Randy attracts very good looking models in the 18-30 age range from all over the United States, including many of the top porn stars. The majority of the guys are Caucasian, and there's also a healthy scattering of Latinos, African-American and Asians. The solos scenes usually introduce new models and the hardcore scenes (about two-thirds of the total) match guys up in duos or threesomes. You'll see a few toys, some bareback, and a bit of double penetration and light kink but nothing too heavy or kinky.

The most popular models have appeared in a number of videos over the years, particularly some of the lavishly produced Randy Blue epics that were released with much publicity and fanfare. There have now been more than 700 guys starring in solo and hardcore scenes shot indoors and out, in all sorts of locations around Southern California.

But in recent video updates the personality of the site has suffered as exclusive American models have been replaced by European content.

Video Details

The viewing quality of Randy Blue videos is generally very good, especially those rendered in HD. Camera work, light and sound are topnotch throughout -- and the money shots are never missed.

At review time there were 690 models appearing in almost 1560 videos. This huge site is updated with exclusive video at least weekly and you can download any video on the site.

There are numerous options for viewing videos. The following specs apply to the most recent 80% of videos, which have been upgraded to true high-definition:

- stream in MP4, choosing from at least three different qualities and viewing at any size up to full screen.

- download in MP4 and Windows Media format in four sizes, the best of which is 1280x720 pixels, 3400 kbps.

The older 20% of videos are available in the same formats, but the maximum sizes and bitrates are somewhat smaller, not HD.

Screens: The website is fully responsive and works well on phones and tablets. The high-definition versions of the videos look good on the big screen.


Image and Other Content

Some websites don't put much care into photos, but Randy Blue is different. Because his background is in photography his professional quality digital image galleries - over 2000 - are second to none. They can be viewed in three different modes, and either one at a time or in slideshow mode. But they still can't be downloaded in a zip file.

Summing Up

Randy Blue is a treasure trove of handsome, masculine men in very good quality exclusive videos and photos. But the constant upsells to live chat and recent shift to European content take away from the personality of the site.
