The Manhub Review of Sweet and Raw

First Impression

When I logged onto SweetandRaw.com it almost looked like Justin Bieber’s website; and in a way, that might be the idea. There are lots of pastel greens and yellows on the homepage, some candy-cane graphics straight out of "Tiger Beat" magazine, a couple of sweet-looking boys who look like they might be auditioning for "Glee" in the near future, and, finally, an open, pink ass and hard cock. This is not your dad’s gay porn site, but it might be your daddy’s. SweetandRaw.com, which carries the tagline "Bareback Twink Diaries," is full of extremely young, extremely Twinkie, and extremely bareback videos. There’s an age disclaimer right away, and when you download, another note saying that condoms are the safest way to have sex. But there’s money in men, and young men at that. If you think these kids are smart enough to somehow know that the guys they are having unprotected sex with are not going to put them at risk for HIV, or if the idea doesn’t bother you, click away.

Navigation

The layout and the look of the site are right on target. I doubt you’re going to log onto this site and think you’re going to find the latest bear videos. There’s a clean look to S&R, and easy navigation tools. You can check out the latest clips, find your favorites, do a model search, and stream or download anything you’d like.  There’s also a live chat room, which you have to sign up for, and, like other ones, is an additional charge. Unfortunately, the one on S&R doesn’t show you the guys in their rooms, waiting; instead, you see a photo. The streaming works well, and the site lets you fast-forward, zoom in, even use a lower speed for slow connections. I like how, if you click on the photo of one of the clips, an automatic, very short, slideshow occurs.

Content

The photos, both solo and action, are professional looking, and nicely shot—a couple of them were cropped in an odd fashion so that you only saw part of the image. Each guy has an extensive photo collection, along with his stats; age, cock size, sexual orientation. The videos have a lot of static in the background, and are generally shot in bright light. There isn’t a lot of direction going on; just the guys talking a bit before going at it. Impressive are the downloading and streaming options; Quick Time, Standard Resolution, WMV, and iPod or iPhone. The site updates once a week, although the video listed as "new this week," when I first logged had a date of Dec. 31, 1969, attached. Figure that one out. The material is entirely exclusive to SweetandRaw.com, and the clips are about 20 minutes in length.

Guys And Sex

What can I say? They’re very skinny men who often look younger than their stated age. Some are so skinny, it looks like they’ve been on Atkins far too long, and skipped the part where you go to the gym and bulk up. If you enjoy bareback, that’s a big plus for you, as are the shots where they cum in each others’ mouths. There are absolutely no muscle guys or hairy guys or guys who are about to hit 30. They do have hot sex, and remind you of college or high school days when sex with another man was an experience, not just a Saturday night. There’s nothing exhilarating or different about the concept, however. It’s Twink and it’s Bareback.

Value

You’re getting a good value, provided this is the type of guys you want. Since everything is exclusive and available in several streaming or downloading options, it’s hard to complain. There’s no blog or user forum, true, but you do get free access to several other sites. The wallpaper is good, too. The best sites update every couple of days, so keep the one-week update in mind before purchasing. The live chat shows are free, if you text, more if you want a private show. Note: Some of the live models are women.

Overall Impression

Barebacking sites are a touchy subject, as well as a moral one; as a consumer, you have to make your own decision if you should support it. It’s even touchier when the guys are this young and inexperienced, as opposed to sites where they have amateur, older couples who are showing you their "home movies." The argument for barebacking sites is that, if studios didn’t offer them, desperate kids would make them on their own, and offer them up on the Internet. The arguments against are obvious.  As for the site itself, it’s very consistent in its theme.

Bottom Line

SweetandRaw.com is a twink barebacking site, featuring really skinny guys who are into hardcore, unprotected sex. The videos are exclusive to the site, and can be downloaded or streamed. There are only twinks on this site; don’t go here for beefcake.
