Site Rating (3.5)
Turkish lads and Moslems are the stars of this pretty unique site where you have solos and some hardcore, hot Turks and Arabs and some video extras.
Complete review published on 08.03.2015
Istan Boys must have been one of the first, if not the first, Turkish, Moslem boys sites on the net. It’s been around for ages offering exclusive photos and galleries of sexy Turks in hardcore and solos sets. And now it’s still offering us this top content staring hung and hunky guys of which dreams are made. Forget the clichés about Turkish Delight, this is a well established and original site that is not to be missed.

You have a very simple home page here. There is a set of drop-downs across the top to take you to your content, a welcome message, a list of some bonus feed sites and then a text list of recent updates. It’s white and bright, unlike the moody, dark red of the tour and comes as a bit of a shock at first. But when you start exploring the actual content…
…you find seven options under your Videos drop down list. Your exclusive content here is arranged in four player types so you simply select which one suits you best and the page changes (back to the red and orange) and gives you the list of movies. I have to stay I found the layout slightly puzzling at first. I counted 32 movies (WMV) listed as thumbnails with no sample pics; there were options to change the number per page, search and select recent ‘photos’ for the last week, month etc. At the bottom of the page I could sort this content in various ways, and the only thing I had to go on – as to what the content actually was – were the titles of the scenes. But I adapted to this design and clicked a scene to see what would happen. The next page was also a bit technical looking, with details of file sizes, views, rating etc. but no images. Another click and I had instructions to click the thumbnail to download, but nothing happened, a right click didn’t download the movie, and I eventually found the download process by right clicking the ‘click thumbnail…’ instruction. A bit of a pain and I was surprised that the movie had a 10 out of 10 rating, just getting to view it was hard enough.
I tried the Mpeg set of videos (114) and here found a Flash stream that ran perfectly well for each clip; ditto the Real set and ditto the Quicktime set. (But without the Flash stream for some reason.) The video pages were still very clinical looking, everything was called a ‘photo’ even if it was a video, but once you get used to this you realise how things work and you can start to enjoy the content.
Which, I have to say, wasn’t very extensive in the video collection. I double checked to see if the four types of movies were four different sets but they are not, they are the same 114 or so movies in four different player types. They are mainly solos, short and to the point, and the files sizes/resolutions tends to be on the small side, and there was no upload date or update news.
As for photos, well, this is where Istan Boys does better. There were around 238 photo sets, and you access them from the drop down list of the guys’ names. Again, not the easiest navigation tool, and you get to these white and clinical pages again, but at least there are thumbnail pics. (Tip: click the Content list in the Main Menu drop-down and you get a large page of all photo sets and videos with thumbnails.) Galleries hold varying amounts of pics each, the quality is fine and the image clarity good. It would have been nice to have had more info about the boys, some of whom are stunning, and also it would have been good to have a separate video page or two showing samples.
Actually that’s my main gripe about the site. The design may be unique but it's not user friendly. You choose photos by name, and videos by titles, there could be more visual guidance here, rather than technical information. A big thumbs up for the Istanbul Gay guide, the models and the feeds, but a bit of a ‘not too sure’ for the design.
The best thing about Istan Boys are the boys, there are some great looking guys in here and some very spunky jack off moments. Sadly there are not a lot of them and the design makes the site a bit of a headache to use. Love the guides and the extras, love the boys, hate there layout and lack of images on the pages. And I wish the site had grown over the past few years, it’s like it’s just sitting there.
