English Lads Review
Oct 10, 2010
Zone 8 Media Ltd
"EnglishLads.com advertises as "Uncut Amateurs, just a little bit hotter." Well, folks, they are right on the mark. This site is packed with hot English amateurs, jerking off, messing around, and fucking. The site provides beautiful photosets and impressive high quality videos. There is a 50/50 mix of straight guys and gay guys, and this works fairly well. The photos are great, and the quality of the videos is top notch for a pro-am site. Nick, the owner of the site, provides lots of extra features and communication with members. There is a blog, a member forum, and plenty of video footage of the English lads talking and letting the viewer getting to know them. The site has hot guys, hot sex, and personality, which is a formula for a very successful site."

PRO 1 Many of the guys, both current and past models, are simply stunning hotties. There are many member favorites such as James Nichols, Matt Hughes, and current favorite Hayden Harris. You definitely want to check out Hayden if you enjoy super sexy straight guys inching closer and closer to full on man-sex. The number of models is almost 400 now, and new, fresh English faces keep appearing regularly - Nick must have a knack for recruiting all of these studs!
PRO 2 Members are allowed to rate and comments on the videos and photosets, and EnglishLads has a member forum where members can request scenes, make suggestions, or simply discuss the models and the site. Nick himself sometimes joins into the discussion, and also provides a blog. Even in the videos you can tell right away that EnglishLads is a labor of love for the owner and staff and that they intend to keep bringing the freshest, horniest English studs to their members, all the while taking input and aiming to please. This sort of dedication is hard to find among sites these days, and it is simply refreshing.
PRO 2 While a few of the lads might have gone on to do other sites, in general the feeling upon logging in for the first time is that a completely new world of content has been laid before you. The models are rarely found elsewhere, and the types of videos range from jerk-offs, massages, side-by-sides, oral, and all out fucking. Sometimes outdoors, sometimes inside, the vids and guys are unique, hot, and high caliber.
CON 1 "This site is updated ""3 times per week, every Friday is a video. Every Wednesday is a photo set and Sunday's alternate video and photo set."" Confused yet? I think this adds up to 1.5 videos per week, on average, and hopefully you can keep the alternating Sundays in your head so you will not be disappointed by a photo set instead of a video. The release schedule, judging even from the members forum, is a consternation to many active members. There is wailing and gnashing of teeth over the relative value of photo sets versus videos, and many members are begging for more videos. That being said, if you know how many pints are in a gallon, and how many pecks are in a bushel, you should be able to keep the EnglishLads schedule in your head."
CON 2 "At the time of this review, only 3 out of the latest 10 video release were fucking scenes, and one of these fucking scenes was actually a video of a photoshoot, not a proper fuck scene. In these ""videos of photo shoots, the camera is clicking away and the viewer feels like a production assistant more than a masterbator. If you are a hardcore fan of ass fucking, the fuck video schedule might not be to your liking. That said, with hundreds of vids available, there is still plenty of older content to browse through. "
EnglishLads started in 2004 as a photo-only site. The expansion to videos was definitely a good call.
Calling all Anglophiles!
Final Word Detail:
From the country that brought us Wedgewood china, London dry gin, and a parliament that calls elections when it bloody well wants to, what else would you expect from an English site except top notch quality, attention to detail, and a quirky release schedule?
