Short Review:

Gay Castings is a relatively new site that deals with a subject often covered in many sites: newbies who want to get into the porn business. Yes, it is a tried and trusted favourite but no, this site is not just another one of those casting sites. Here you've got a small but growing collection of handsome and varied amateur guys doing their first time solos, helping hands, or full on hardcore scenes in exclusive videos that you can download and stream.

Content:

The site started off in September 2012 and has been updating every week since then. I say it is very simple because it is made up solely of videos and a model index, that's it. There are some links and adverts to other up-sell sites, but there is nothing complicated or fancy or extra in the members' area. You have a list of Scenes and a list of models and there are 19 videos (as I write) and 18 models.

Each video is sampled with a good sized sample shot and these are as varied as the guys who appear in the exclusive movies. When you click to find a scene you then discover that you have a large streaming version to run and three downloads. The stream will be better suited to faster connections as it is very high quality and thus a bit big and cumbersome, and anything other than a full broadband connection will probably suffer a lot of interruption. But set it buffering and come back later for a stream that is great in quality terms, and very smooth to run once buffered. There is also a standard sized stream to use if you can't take the full-on version, and this was just as clear and good in quality.

Your download options are Mpg in high definition (1920 x 1080), WMV in the same and a smaller Mp4 at &50 x 422. At times even these smaller files are quite large, over 300Mbs, and downloading may take some time depending on your connection; the download speed for me was fine, around 200Kbps. The movies run for between 35 and 45 minutes so you get a good lot of time in terms of viewing.

And as for action: well the important parts about these movies are the starts, the interviews and the chats. You want to watch these in order to get a good idea of the guys you are about to see, you want to find out more about each one. You can hear them talk to the camera and decide for yourself if they are gay, straight, bi, sexy or simply in it for the money. They have all come of their own accord and yet some are still very nervous. Its cute. And then they start their strip or play session, and you've got solos in the traditional sense, then helping hand ones, and then the guy is obliged to suck off a member of the crew or fuck with another model, and it's all natural. Sometimes the chat continues through the strip and the solo sessions and sometimes the camera work is POV, as the hunky model fucking the newbie holds the camera. Like the models, the action is varied and doesnt let you down in terms of excitement and horniness

Each scene comes with a set of screen caps and a set of digital pics as well. These galleries hold many images each and the quality is fine. Screen caps were up at 1,920 x ,1080 though scaled down initially to a better size for the screen, and the digital shots, the HQ Pictures were at 1,500 x 1,000 and also scaled down at first. They are both a mix of poses and pre-show shots plus action.

So, Gay Castings has a weekly upload schedule and dates are posted, the guys are varied and horny to view, the action is nicely mixed and the quality is great. This is set to become a top casting site and is well worth a look.

Features & Navigation:

The members' area is very easy to navigate and use. There is a top menu and his holds simple links to the scenes, the models and then to the up-sells, the live cams site and a page of Deals where you can see some sign up offers for other sites. There is also a Top Rated page where you can see the most popular scenes. This will come into play more when the site has built up a bigger content stock. You can cast your own votes on each scene and also make comments as you view, but those are about your only interactive options.

Image galleries come with zip file downloads for the full sets but not with navigation buttons, so you have to open each image one at a time, but videos do come with trailers so you can get an idea of a scene before you download or stream.

The overall design of the site is fine, it's dark and clear, but there are one to many advertisements for my taste: there are lots of adverts for other sites and sign ups which, although interesting, do get a bit boring to see. There is, after all, the Deals page to check out so why not keep all the adverts there? Other than that: no technical issues, no problems all nice and simple and clear and everything worked exactly as it should do.

Conclusion:

Gay Castings works very well as a castings site; you have the interviews and you get to hear and know the models, you get good quality videos which are exclusive and you get a new one every week. The men and the action are both varied and you won't get bored with what you see. There are good viewing options, good quality pics and an easy to use set of pages. Its not very interactive or big, at the moment, but other than that; it's a good price for a simple and very good quality set of videos.
