Hot House Entertainment is one of the leading producers of hardcore, gay porn in San Francisco and the Web version of its particular brand of hypermasculine kink is just as slick and well executed as its full-length releases. I first became enamored with Hot House by way of Cory Jay, the lean (yet quite hirsute) star of the Acres of Ass franchise, and I have been a fan ever since.
The men of Hot House are not bears, but they are often quite hairy. They are also not strictly body builders, but they are often really muscular. And the men of Hot House are also older and younger, but not twinkish nor geriatric. There is most certainly a definite “type,” but it’s not as easy to define with Hot House as it is with some other studios that have found their niche and their demographic and rarely deviate from that norm. It’s about body type, it’s about leather, and it’s about attitude and swagger, but it is somehow much more than that. The men of Hot House exude testosterone and confidence and their DVDs scorch accordingly.
The Backroom offers scenes from these full-length releases as Flash clips that open in a new window in the center of the screen. Now if you’ve read any of my other reviews that mention Flash, you’ll know that I am (typically) not a fan because of the navigation, bandwidth, and general functionality issues associated with the technology, but there are none of these in Hot Houses’ Backroom. (At all.) In fact, the video quality and navigability of the content is really amazing.
In fact, it has none of the long wait times and screen stalling that I’ve ranted and raved about before and the quality and the crispness of the imagery are ridiculously good. One of my current Hot House favorites is a beefy Southern bottom, named Ty LeBeouf, who stars in such recent titles as Jockstrap and Verbøten: Part 2, and I went straight (well…) for scene four of the latter where Monsieur LeBeouf bottoms for Josh West in a moody leather scenario. Dang! is all that I can really say about all that.
Video content is searchable by title, model, and theme and the Backroom features clips that are available exclusively online. (The Dungeon has darker and more-extreme offerings.) Full-length releases can be viewed in their entirety via Hot House On Demand or purchased from the Superstore. The Hot Flash Blog aggregates information about new releases, events, men, products, and promotions and some random behind-the-scenes views of the Hot House empire. So sweaty, and so exceptional, that you can almost smell the men and the leather in The Backroom.
