Badpuppy is one of the oldest and largest megasites on the gay internet. It has been online since 1995 and boasts such a vast and varied content that it precludes providing too much detail in the limited space of this review. I will try, however, to point out some of the highlights of this site in hope of giving you an overall impression. I would strongly suggest that at minimum you take the preview tour, or perhaps take out a trial membership if you can, to give you a more accurate idea of what awaits you as a member.
As you enter the site on the start page, you first notice at the top of the page a chart of all the different sections of the site. These represent major categories that have additional breakdowns within. They are:
Chat, Forums, Model Pictures, Profiles, Video Reviews, Community, Gallery Photos, My Badpuppy, Shop, Webcams, Contributors, Help, New Page, Site Map, Email, Live sex, Newest Models, Streaming Video, Erotic Stories, Magazine Stand, Pay Per View, and Video Clips. These choices allow you to browse the site according to your area of interest.
The rest of the start page gives you more detailed options in the following sections:
About 50 features which are exclusively or mostly photos and photo sets. Some contain video clips as well. The badpuppy photos section has 1145 models, with 4 new models added every week. You can browse by model name, or you can browse by a variety of types and categories by means of a drop down menu.
Original Models contains 500+ exclusive photosets of mostly young twinks.
Euro Models has 300+ photosets of husky Euro models.
A variety of other categories gives you a wide range of choices. With each photoset you are given a choice of 4 different pic sizes, as well as slide show and zip downloading options.
A variety of magazine sites are also included in this sectiom.
This section contains 22 live cam sites, including Beach Bois, Boys Condo, Our Guys, and Prague Buddies to name just a few.
This section contains 15 features of varying types, including video plug-ins like Cruiser Boys, Squirtz, and Maximo Latino, among others, as well as some pay per view sites. Except for a feature called long playing clips and the plug-in and PPV sites, the vast majority of video clips are only 30 seconds long, with a few as long as 5 minutes. Video quality on these short clips is also quite marginal. To me, 30 seond video clips are alright as previews to other pay sites, but are hardly appropriate as features for paying members. For that reason I feel that the video offerings at Badpuppy are not up to the standard of what megasite of this size should be providing for it's members. Each member, however, must decide this for himself.
This section is made up of 12 personal web cam sites, each one unique in what it offers.
This is a large category at Badpuppy consisting of 75 contributing sites. These are considered bonus sites offering a variety of content, but most of them are small and limited in what they offer.
Chat, Instant Messenger, and Forum are a few of the 15 features included in this category.
Twenty one features to help you shop online for a variety of wants and needs.
Badpuppy provides 8 different help categories to provide assistance to members should any problems arise.
In summary, those who are searching for quantity and variety in a site should be very happy at Badpuppy. Those who might have a primary interest in photo material should find more than enough to satisfy their interest. Those whose primary interest is in video, however, should check out what Badpuppy offers in this area to see if it is right for you. Also, it should be noted that repeated logging in with user name and password is required for just about everything within the Badpuppy member's area. I found this to be excessive and an annoying niusance. Again, decide for yourselves on this point.
