Buzz West is a smalltown boy from rural Ohio who went west (as gay boys from small towns often do) where he worked for Dirk Yates for a number of years in San Diego. BuzzWest.com is a stylish collection of first-time experiences featuring ridiculously attractive straight and bi men. There isn’t a ton of full-on fucking on this site, but the content is very compelling and highly erotic even when the action is relatively tame. (And have I mentioned the proliferation of USMC tattoos on the biceps and flanks of these lean, yet muscular, studs? Nice.)
There are currently 24 pages of content, in the form of photo sets and video clips, on this site that feature young men with collegiate and military looks about them. (And some of them even look younger than that!) Rather than the typical thumbnails, BuzzWest.com has what amount to digital portraits of each model, a brief description of the man and the scenario, as well as the date that all of this was added to the site. BuzzWest.com is searchable by the model’s name, popularity, and the freshness of the content by way of a drop-down menu on the homepage.
Each photo set, and accompanying videos, has a longer introduction and synopsis about how the photo and video shoots came together and what each of the men was like to work with (in terms of disposition, orientation, and experience) penned by Buzz West, himself. There is a lot of massage, plenty of first-timer fellatio, some rimming, and a few fucks on this site (as I mentioned earlier), but one of the really interesting features of BuzzWest.com is the fact that video content can be streamed and downloaded as small, medium, or large WAV files for the Windows Media Player, but it is also available as MP4s for viewing on PlayStation Portable systems and video iPods(!)
Bonus sites include: Young Elite Gay, Movie of the Week (the gay one), First Timers, Twinks on Parade, Roman Bathhouse, Bye-Bi-Boys, Fuck Me Fella, and Bear Patrol with additional live chat functionality provided by Flirt 4 Free. The majority of the DRM-Free content is proprietary, although some of the older video footage and photos appear courtesy of DirkYatesLive.com, and there is an obvious quality-over-quantity ethic at work on this extremely stylish site. The men are masculine and aesthetically pleasing and this sensibility is applied to the layout and navigation, as well. BuzzWest.com is quality gay porn with a definite SoCal sensibility.
