As I mentioned, the content seems older here all around. I’ll go out on a limb and say that 1080p HD is the de facto standard these days, but Jocks Studios only offers 480p SD videos, which is two full quality levels behind the norm.
They almost have an older VHS quality to them at times, though I’m sure it’s not that bad, and it’s just me being so used to the newer sites we check out.
The pictures here look older as well, as expected. Surprisingly, the size isn’t as bad as I thought it could be. They come in around 1200×800 or 1280×960, which isn’t huge, but I’ve seen smaller recently, so it’s hard to complain. Though they do look rather faded in terms of color and sharpness for sure and don’t compare to today’s standards.
On the plus side, the site was larger than I was expecting to see, which is always a pleasant surprise. They have 634 scenes online, which is pretty good for an individual site like this. I think they’re probably forever stuck at this number, but at least it’s not a low count.
They don’t date anything here, so you can’t technically be sure when they last updated. But it doesn’t take a private investigator to figure out that they probably don’t update at this point, and haven’t in quite a long time. The content just looks too old to be anything recent.
Navigation & User Interface
The site also feels older and is very reminiscent of sites from many years ago. That sadly means that they don’t have a ton of advanced search features, so you’ll pretty much have to browse by content date or by the models.
With an older site, it’s no surprise that their mobile scores aren’t the best. Since it’s not mobile optimized, browsing on my iPhone XS just needed a lot of zooming in. It’s not the best site on mobile. You can see the results of our JocksStudios.com mobile page speed test here:
Desktop speeds were better, but still not great. It’s fine enough to browse around, and since they don’t really offer downloads, all I really cared about was that the videos played smoothly. Which they did, likely since they max out at 480p. You can see the results of our JocksStudios.com desktop page speed test here:
Price / Value
The half off your first month is a nice start, but we’re looking at a $30 a month site that hasn’t updated in many years. And considering you can’t download the videos on top of everything, I’d say that the value here is on the low side.
Jocks Studios just feels like an old-school site that hasn’t had a lot of attention in many years. So it’s a blast from the past, which might not be a bad thing if you are looking for a certain type of porn from back in those days.
The numbers are the best thing here with over 600 scenes. Plus, you can join for just $15 for your first month if you do want to check things out.
Beyond that, things don’t look great. You can’t download the videos, so you’re stuck streaming them only. On top of that, they only offer them in standard definition, which hasn’t been the norm in a very long time. And of course, I don’t think they’ve updated in many years at this point, so don’t expect anything in the way of new material.
If you like muscle jocks in hardcore porn and like what you see in Jock Studio’s tour, it could be worth a quick look to scratch that itch. I don’t imagine you’ll want to stick around terribly long, but if you miss gay porn from years back, it could be a fun trip down memory lane.
