Review date: November 2016
If you love hot, slender, uncut British amateurs then this is the site for you. There are more than 1100 videos for streaming and download, cumshots from several angles, numerous video options, and a responsive site design that works beautifully on all your devices. Even better: you can take advantage of BananaGuide pricing at just $14.95 per month (recurring).
The homepage alone gives non-members a fantastic taste of what the site has to offer. There are 11 hardcore, six solo and four "fan favorite" trailers to sample. But if you click on "Videos" or "After Hours" you can go on to preview any scene that takes your fancy. Each video page has a few sample pictures as well, but these link directly to the sign-up page. The actual membership site has a vastly different look, but the content is the same.
The current design is crisp and to the point, listing and describing the content, with the most recent first. Blake Mason now incorporates a responsive design template, which means the center column ends up being the design for your mobile version of the site.
The movie index and the model roster are both searchable by several categories, including type of action, build, age, cock size, and even eye color. One nifty feature is the "Playlists," which take Favorites a step further: you can take any streaming video and dictate a start and stop time and then add it to a Playlist - so you can bookmark not just your favorite videos, but your favorite moments in the video.
There is a promotional offer at the top of each page; you can minimize this by clicking the "-" on the top left hand corner of the ad. Also note that there are a few more ads along the left side of the page (including "Live Cams" and "Hookup Tonight").
The Men and the Action
The younger amateurs starring on Blake Mason are sometimes quite shy, but with their creamy skin and big uncut dicks, these 18 to 28 year olds have a lot to be proud of. It's quite common in Britain for young stars to begin their porn career right here at Blake Mason. They usually start off in solo performances and then are paired up in several duo sessions. In these duo and group videos the guys are filmed in the well-appointed Blake Mason studio, and at locations around the area.
The interviews at the start of the solo sessions show off the range of regional accents, and the guys' easy-going relationship to sex. The site features good old-fashioned jerking, rimming, fucking and sucking for the most part. It is not particularly known for kink, but we do see a few Fleshjacks, anal beads, and dildos. And it is always a pleasant surprise when some of the guys with the biggest dicks are enthusiastic bottoms.
Blake Mason's high-definition videos have exceptional viewing quality; working back in the catalog the overall quality is slightly less, but still very good to excellent. The videos all feature agile camera work and excellent light throughout. And the use of multiple cameras allows for a variety of medium and close shots, with no one shot lingering for too long. Cumshots are captured beautifully with multiple medium and close-up shots. The bonus videos are from Gay Life Network and Beddable Boys and are of lesser quality.
The episode count continues to grow rapidly: There are now just over 1160 videos, with one new scenes added every week. Videos average about 20 minutes in length, and downloads are included. There are 46 videos labelled "After Hours", but these seem just the same as those in the main video inventory.
While there's an embedded Flash player with a default size of 640x360 pixels, you can select to stream at better quality. All of the videos added since January, 2010 display at true HD, with a top size of 1920x1080 pixels (5,000 kbps); they're usually available in three smaller sizes as well. Older ones drop down to a maximum size of 960x540 pixels, 2,500 kbps.
Screens: The site now has a full mobile version, included with your membership. All the videos at 720p or 1080p will look great on a TV screen.
Image and Other Content
Each video on Blake Mason is accompanied by a set of about 70 high-quality, video captures and you have the option of watching them in slide-show mode if you choose; they can also be downloaded as a zip file. The high-def vidcaps are 960x540 (and older ones are 560x480).
There's also a large amount of additional exclusive content under the Bonus Videos tab. Here you'll find over 433 scenes from sites including Gay Life Network and Beddable Boys.
If you click-through to Blake Mason from anywhere but BananaGuide, you may be offered a 7-day trial. This is a very limited trial, allowing you to view just a half dozen videos at most. Although they do tell you this in small print on the sign-up page, it's still pretty stingy.
Blake Mason gives fans of handsome, horny, and hung British college age guys over 1160 crystal-clear, exclusive streaming and downloadable videos of them at play. Add the upgraded videos and great personality, and the site stands up exceptionally well against the top US collegiate sites. Now BananaGuide priced at $15 a month - you can't go wrong.
