Review date: February 2017
Over the years Michael Lucas has had a talent for courting controversy and grabbing the media spotlight, but no one can dispute his massive skills as a porn star, producer and director. A magnet for hot, masculine porn models, Lucas Entertainment has a way of teasing out excellent performances from its performers. The site has lifted restrictions on downloading, so you can now stream and download as much as you wish. The majority of videos are excellent HD quality, there are plenty of them, and the site updates twice a week.
The Lucas Entertainment is very thorough: just begin on the homepage with the large rotating images at the top and you'll find a number of high quality, explicit preview clips. Scrolling down the page, click on any of the scene thumbnails and you can view up to a limit of ten preview clips. You can also go into the extensive "Movies", "Scenes" or "Lucas Men" indexes and view preview clips of some of the featured DVDs, the most watched scenes, and the Lucas exclusive models.
The large amount of content is well-organized, easy to navigate and nicely cross-referenced in a fully responsive site design. The search engine enables you to look for videos by movie title, model or the category of action that you'd like to zero in on. You'll notice links to Lucas Raunch and to Sex In Suits: both are Lucas content but housed on separate sites to which you have full access.
In the "Scenes" menu, upcoming scene trailers are mixed in with the latest full scenes, but these are clearly labelled "Trailers." If you choose to download a scene, the site first asks you if you "are sure" and then the scene is cued in a section called your "Library." You then go to your Library to download the video. This process seems to be left over from a system where credits were required to purchase a download.
The Men and the Action
Michael Lucas’ chiseled features, sexy accent, and magnificent tool are easy to spot throughout the episodes, but he doesn't appear often anymore and there's plenty of other talent on display – usually men with similarly perfect proportions and prodigious packages. The over 800 Lucas models are studs in the classic sense, and there are many big gay porn names to be found here. They're typically endowed with large dicks, handsome faces and ripped bodies. There's a broad range of ethnicities in this international cast, and naturally hairy bodies in equal amounts with smooth.
While there are many plot-driven, feature-length films in the Lucas library, most of the current videos are aimed squarely on the sex. The videos are shot in a variety of settings and cover the many things that can happen when hot, young, horny and often kinky guys get together. Whether it's a bed or a sofa, a beach or a dock, a New York loft or a Fire Island cottage, an amateur-style audition or a fully edited video, these nasty, sexed-up guys go way further than most porn models. You'll find everything from feet, to facials, to deep-throating, cum-eating, piss play and, since late 2013, lots of bareback. And you'll enjoy the frank and explicit interviews with aspiring models.
The playback quality of the videos is generally excellent for more recent ones, and still very good for older ones. The videography is flawless: the cinematography and editing is consistently excellent, even in the casual “Auditions” videos; and a careful directorial eye always catches the best angles, the right mix of medium and close-up shots, as well as almost every cumshot.
With 1450 scenes, and two new scenes added every week (averaging about 30 minutes in length), there’s more than enough videos on Lucas Entertainment to keep even the most dedicated porn fan busy. You also have access to 372 more videos in Lucas Raunch and 90 in Sex in Suits. Download restrictions were removed in late 2015, so you can now stream and download an unlimited number of scenes.
Videos will stream and download in MP4, in two or three qualities. The embedded streaming player is fully resizable and can be toggled to full screen.
For downloads, the more recent 60%, added since 2010, are high definition, with most having a top quality of 1280x720p (3200 kbps); very recent ones are 1920x1080p HD (8000 kbps). Older videos, shot in standard definition, have a default size of 640x480 pixels (4800 kbps); while these have been remastered they are not HD, though they are labelled as such.
Screens: The site is fully responsive, so it looks good and performs well on all size screens. The 60% in high definition look great on a TV sized screen.
Image and Other Content
There are images sets distributed throughout the site, but some scenes have them and others don't; the more recent a video scene the more likely it is that there will be a few digital images accompanying it. There are also small digital image galleries for the 800 models and for the 300+ full-length movies.
The Lucas Community is for porn fans and Lucas stars to interact. You can create a profile and search for and interact with other members though text and video chat; or see which Lucas models are online and send a chat request. It's a community section that actually is active.
Lucas Entertainment is a unique mix of over 1450 high quality productions with passionate, beautiful guys, rampant kink and some amazing locations. Now that Lucas allows downloads, it's great value for fans of masculine men.
