I was a big Bel Ami fan for many years but is it just me or has the quality of actors dropped recently? I havent seen a good vid in ages!

I liked them a lot when I was younger, too (first gay porn I ever bought was Bel Ami, at 18), but compared to the kind of stuff I can get from Staxus or Treasure Island Media now, it just lacks the intensity of very hard sex.

The models are undoubtedly gorgeous, but I rarely watch a scene of theirs anymore for more than a few seconds. The sex seems fake, plastic, staged, and non-genuine. Machofucker beats the ever-loving hell out of them in terms of fucking I can believe. Bel Ami models are too sleek and ... it's hard to describe it. It's like watching a bunch of posed Ken dolls. I don't *believe* that these guys would ever meet each other at random and just fuck with or without the camera.

It helped a bit when they went bareback (honestly, I don't watch condom porn at all anymore either -- porn is for my fantasy time, and I for one don't fantasize about condoms), but only marginally.

Also, there's way too much of an emphasis on orgy scenes and group sex. I've always found those to be distracting and over-the-top. I need to focus on a specific thing to cum; if the camera is cutting all over the place to 20 different performers every 5 seconds, it's just too much.

I think of Bel Ami is starter porn now. When I was 16 I used to love it, the men were (and are) stunning and it is clean and highly polished but 20 years on I cant be bothered with it as it's too fake, boring and sterile.

Bound Gods, Treasure Island Media and the likes for me now... its just a bit more real and the men more natural... I mean come on... who wants to be fucked by angels all day in heaven when the fun is in hell?

I used to love Bel Ami too when I first started watching porn, so many good looking guys, but like many others said, over the years as I age, the guys are still very good looking, but now I like my porn almost amateurish.  Like sauna, locker, gym porn, they just seem much more raw and real instead of stage and the guys acting like they enjoy it.

I'd add that most of the "Legacy" studios still in business (Falcon, absolutely anything ChiChi Larue directs are great examples) are similarly sterile. It's all about the pure physical attractiveness of whatever model they've given a contract to, and very little about action and an actual state of being turned on and mindlessly craving the sex (I get that feeling from Treasure Island Media, that the people on camera are just fucking stoked to be fucking EACH OTHER ... never from Falcon, Bel Ami, etc.)

I'd love to see some of the 'perfect 10' models in scenes that have believable, animalistic sex, but there's just so many more porn scenes like that from the myriad of minor studios that have 8s or 9s, haha. :-p

I did recently download a scene from Sean Cody that surprised me; he's definitely trying to get closer to that intensity, though he doesn't quite make it. His performers are in that sleek, plastic, Ken-doll "10" category, though. If you're looking for a good compromise between both worlds, Sean Cody is probably it.

It's too mechanical for me.

And there's no intensity to it at all.

A few of the guys are hot but that doesn't count for much when the action looks shit on screen.

Its a strong sign that you already bored over BelAmi.

They always make a vanilla porn video from the past until today. I think your taste has changed and you want something stronger than that cutie vanilla pie.
Maybe it's time for BDSM  porn Evil Evil Evil

I've stumbled upon BelAmi around 3 years ago, and let me say that I have noticed that their models have went downhill. Even now, I only watch their old models (I don't know if they still shoot) but my favorites are Kevin W, Mick, and Gino too. From the start, I noticed that their scenes were too soft for me, not enough hot, rough passion. However, there are a few which I love. My favorite BelAmi scene is when Gino is tied to a bed, then is brutally fucked by a stranger (it's a scene from the remake of American in Prague.)

Seems like many others here, my introduction to gay porn was thru Bel Ami. I recall a scene - think it was from Frisky Summer but not sure - of Johan Paulik and Ion Davidof fucking, both with rollerboots on. At the time it was the hottest thing I'd ever seen in my life. Then I was watching another video with my boyfriend one night, and he'd noticed there was a pattern to every scene, a formula if you like, that didn't change from scene to scene or film to film. That knowledge alone kinda soured my thoughts on any Bel Ami video after that point. I couldn't watch without hearing my boyfriend going through all the steps of the formula as it happened!

As someone else pointed out, tastes change over time, experiences shape our fantasies and desires. For me, condoms became a complete turn-off. I like cock, and especially I like to see nice looking cocks, but when it looks like vacuum-packed sausage still in the wrapper...

I've not been tempted to revisit Bel Ami even though - like many studios - their output has gone bareback. None of the models really interest me. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I've outgrown 'twink porn' (Bel Ami basically DEFINED what a twink was!), or that they've not got nice bodies and attractive faces, its just that I don't think 'I MUST see him get fucked' or 'I gotta see that cock sliding into a tight hairless hole' from any of them. But that's on me. TIM, MachoFucker, Fraternity X and SketchySex feature prominently in my porn-stash right now. The sex appears genuine, spontaneous and realistic. Maybe their lack of 'gloss' is what is appealing, I don't know. At least it's not like some SEVP stuff where the wide-shot shows the top really banging away at the bottom, but the close-up reveals that only the cockhead was inserted and for all the vigorous banging the dick was barely moving!

Someone mentioned ChiChi Larue and at some point in some video I recall hearing the line 'Yea, but she only does condom commercials these days...' in response to the name being mentioned. Never been much enthused, but anyone who can take a promising concept and develop it to the appeal of a turd in a supermarket aisle must have some skills Wink

One of the very first porn clips I ever remember watching as a teen was with Johan, Ion, Lukas. There was a party on a boat house and the boys would pair off and find somewhere to go fuck. It's old now but I found it a while ago on here, Lukas' Stories couldn't wait for it to download, kicked back nude and enjoyed a couple of great orgasms remembering what got me coming back for more gay porn.

Very outdated, scenes are repetitive and actors are boring but I guess some people like them.

Like someone said, it's very repetitive. But Kris Evans and Jack Harrer are just too hot.

I never really liked Bel Ami, the models are just way too "perfect" and "dreamy" that it just starts to feel very unrealistic. The only models that I liked are the Peters Twins, I miss them. Lately I prefer realistic porn like Treasure Island Media. Kinda done with flashy studio porn to be honest.
