The Manhub Review of Drake Rock

First Impression

DrakeRock.com is one of those amateur-goes-pro sites, with young guys who look like they haven’t done porn before, and, if you believe what owner Drake Rock tells you, are often straight. I have a difficult time with the latter, mostly because most straight guys I know don’t kiss other men, rim them, suck their cocks, fuck them, turn over to get fucked by them, and lick the cum off their face after getting fingered. I also really don’t care what they claim their sexuality is provided they get me off.  Rock tells you, in the “About” section, that he’d never been with a man before starting this site, and it’s really about his exploration of sexuality that made him interested in maintaining the site. He casts, directs, edits, and does everything else too.

Navigation

When you hit the homepage, there’s a survey on whether the hot stud featured should become a model. After that tease, there’s a lot of busy graphics and some confusion as to how things work. DrakeRock.com has a sleek, modern feel to it, and the layout is awkward at times. For instance, scroll on a model’s photo and the synopsis about him covers up a good chunk of his photo. If you try and read it, it disappears before you’re finished. I don’t know if it’s the photography, but the models also kind of blend together after awhile.

Content

On the bright side, there aren’t ads smothered all over the site, and it’s exclusive material. Rock divides his videos into hardcore and softcore (the former has cum shots, the latter, background music).  Everything on the site is available to download, and you’re asked to install Adobe Media Player. Some people aren’t going to appreciate having to download yet another media player, and I disposed of it ASAP. I also fidgeted a bit and managed to download straight to my desktop. The streaming equipment is slow, and you can’t fast-forward, at least on my PC. Since these clips can be long—around 35 minutes—that’s a lot of foreplay to sit through. For the record, he has smaller, quickie clips to download, for either slow connections, or if you wish to have crisper versions of the videos.

There’s a solid photo gallery of the dudes, and the shots are crisp and clear. If you want a zip file, however, it’s not offered. The videos themselves are high definition, and don’t extend beyond a simple bed-type background. He doesn’t do storytelling. The camera work can be very shaky, and there’s a lot of sound distortion. Then again, you can hear every slurp. The mix of solo and duo clips is about even, and Rock updates twice a week. In addition to the above-mentioned downloading and streaming options, you can also download to iPhones, a huge plus in our porn-on-the-go world. Since DrakeRock.com is all exclusive material, much of what will make or break this site for you is the men.

Guys And Sex

As for those guys, a few of them are gorgeous, and look like they’re plucked out of the world of Falcon or Randy Blue. Indeed, a couple of them do work elsewhere. There’s not a lot of variation in them—early twenties, not too many tattoos, fairly ripped but not steroidal, and no excess body hair or piercings. Rock has a lot of “Flip-Fuck” videos, where the guys take turns. That’s a great feature and a big turn-on. He also relishes in “un-edited” the scenes: The guys have lube nearby and go through the motions, sometimes a little uncomfortably, sometimes like pros. When they fuck, there’s no stopping of the camera for fluffers and condoms. If one guy can’t keep it up, the other one might suck him a bit, or they switch positions until it feels better. The “reality show” aspect of the clips is actually pretty cool, although you might get tired of watching guys with Astro-Glide all over their hands. Rock tends to match up muscle with twink-lite, so if you only want six-packs, go elsewhere.

Value

Every exclusive site has a certain demographic, and DrakeRock.com is made for a specific audience. If you’re into these guys and the amateur look, you’re getting good value. Downloading and frequent updates keeps things interesting, and Rock has a Comments section below each clip. In addition to the plot summaries, there are filmed interviews with the models, a blog that also serves as a users’ forum, and an “Ask” section, in which you can ask the models questions, and he posts the answers ASAP.  There’s also a lengthy “help” section, dealing mostly with downloading and streaming problems.

Overall Impression

The site has a lot of potential and some very hot men. It could use more navigation ease and design, and the softcore section almost seems like a waste of time. If you’re strictly a Colt kind of guy, you’ll be disappointed; ditto a Twink-man. There’s not a whole lot of variety in the types of clips you’re getting, and the guys don’t have or do a lot of variation. I like the un-edited sex scenes, but wish the streaming were a bit more effective so I could fast-forward through them, should I wish.

Bottom Line

DrakeRock.com is a fairly hot site with young guys going at it, amateur-style. The clips have an un-edited, raw look, with the shots of condom placement and Lube re-applying included. The young men are fairly clean cut, so don’t come here for bears or bondage.
