Bad Puppy review
Summary: Bad Puppy doesn't win awards for its megasite for no reason - there are so many reasons to sign up for this site. The collection is gigantic, the contributor sites are great, and you'll find that you'll be a member at Bad Puppy for a long long time.

If you've been around the gay pornsite world at all, you're going to recognize the name Bad Puppy. This powerful gay porn brand has been well known for their excellent megasite for years, and the amount of independent sites under them gives them a great amount of bonus sites.
The member's area might look a bit dated at first, but it ends up working really well. The amateur look just ends up being perfect for Bad Puppy, and the loads of information is presented in a way that makes it well organized, not busy.
You have basic navigation across the top of the page, and underneath that are the latest updates. A category run down gives you a few major gay niches, featured sections, highlighted sites, and news.
I've had the pleasure of exploring Gay Puppy in the past, and it looks like they're just going to continue getting better and better. There's a ton of different features here to go over, so let's get started with the base video and photo content. There's a keyword search, so you'll be able to make your way around the site this way as well.
There are daily updates within the network, so you'll always have something new to check out. The collection that you get access to on the main Bad Puppy network hub consists of over 1900 models in total. It can take a bit of time until you get used to the setup of the network, as bonus site content is also conveniently provided within the main listings.
There are 77 studio movies available, 681 video and photo galleries, and 3,292 photo only galleries. That's enough of a collection to keep anyone happy, and they cover pretty much every gay porn niche that you can think of, and with daily updates it's pretty unlikely that you're going to manage to get through even the main collection. There is another video listing area, still on Bad Puppy, that just makes it easier to get to the contributor site videos - the rest, however, do look to be mainly exclusive to Bad Puppy.
The galleries have a bit of a frame setup. You have the set going down the left frame, then the picture shown in the main frame. It's an older setup, but it's not going to bother you all that much. The pictures average 533x800, and while the size is relatively small the quality is very good. There are over 50 photos per set, and you aren't getting zip downloads or slideshows.
The video pages are laid out simply, but in a way that presents all of the viewing options to you at once. The links to the photo galleries are right up top, and oddly they offer the zip and slideshow options right here. It's a nice touch, but they probably need to have those options linked right on the main page.
Under that you have 5 different viewing options - low and high speed wmv, mpeg, ipod, and Flash. There are suggestions of other models that you might like to check out, along with comments on the videos. This is a very popular site, so the comments area gets pretty damn lively. Let's start with the MPG - this is the largest file size out of all of them, and it is offered at 720x480 and 3 mbps. Next up is the MP4 which is shown at 640x480 and 2.69 mbps. The two WMVs are shown at 720x480 and 1 mbps and 320x240 and 100 kbps. Quality does tend to vary between the different videos, and older videos are shown at a max of 640x480.
Bad Puppy also offers an active community beyond the comments. You just need to hit the more tab, and all of your community choices are right under there. There's a member survey, hot links to books and magazines, forums, erotic stories, and a massive newgroup (and Bad Puppy provides a web newsgroup reader, so you'll be able to dive in right away). This is far more than just a gay pornsite - it's a true gay community, and provides plenty of food for thought throughout.
Now let's talk about the bonus sites - there are two different kinds of bonuses. The first are straight up third party feeds, and they're pretty much just the same type of feeds that you'll see on any gay site offering bonuses along those lines. The others, however, give you 47 sites of their own flavors of porn. There is a lot more personality in these sites than you would ever expect to see out of a porn megasite, and there are countless niches covered, including the ever rare gay classic porn. There is also a gigantic archive of contributor sites that are no longer being updated, but still contain plenty of great porn.
Bad Puppy is an insanely good gay megasite that offers all you want out of a porn network, plus all that you want out of a good gay community site on top of it. While it might not be the flashiest in presentation, it is user friendly and gives you a reason to come back every single day.
