I like a straightforward site, and Fit Young Men is just that. It’s quite simple: This is an athletic male photography site that features British, fit, athletic, young guys, mainly in their sports kit, but also out of it. There is a great selection of hot 18+ youth to get your hands on here, and most of the guys you will see are not professional models. They are sportsmen. Tennis-twinks, Hockey-jockeys, boxing-boys, lacrosse-lads, you get the picture. Well, you get loads of pictures once you’re signed up, but don’t expect porn videos.
There’s something totally erotic about a handsome, lean young guy in tight Speedos and you’ll find some of them here. Personally, I have this big thing for gymnasts; those skin-tight sports tops and bulging bottoms, tight buns, to say nothing of the muscles. And as for the cuties who do that Greco-Roman wrestling at the Olympic Games, well, don’t get me started on that. Just the way they grapple with each other, wearing nothing beneath their lycra… How they don’t get a hardon is beyond me. We’ve seen snapshots of guys like that before, on all kinds of free sites, but the quality of the images at Fit Young Men is something else.
It’s all about the photography here with a few interviews where the guys are naked, or ‘subtly naked’, which means you don’t see boners or jerk-offs, but you can always imagine. The artist behind the site, the London photographer Nick Baker, knows what he is doing and he knows what you want to see. There’s a section for ‘Fit & Famous’ with some athletics stars you may recognise, and then there’s the list of amateur guys who are into sports and totally exclusive to the site. He shoots them in their sports gear, and also out of it, and gives us some info and details about each one. Anyone can apply to be photographed, or you can suggest someone you think would look good on the site. So far, Nick has found 643 models for us, and his collection adds up to over 188,454 individual images.
Here’s the technical info: There are currently 560 + photo sets with 300 to 500 images per set, so plenty to collect there. You have a choice of zip files to download, once you have been a member for long enough; before then you can view them online and download them one at a time. You will find resolutions/sizes at 600 x 900 px and 750 x 1,125. Members who have stayed loyal for more than 60 days have them at 1,000 x 1,500 and members who stay around for longer than 120 days have them at 2,000 x 3,000. The quality is excellent, and Nick captures the guys’ characters as well as their gorgeous looks and sculpted muscles.
All of this content is exclusive, there are new updates added to the site every Thursday and Sunday, and the site has been regularly updating since it started out in 2010.
There is a pricing structure that you need to be aware of. You can opt for the lower-cost sign-up, but that will only give you access to the last two years’ worth of images. The higher-cost one lets you see everything (560 + image sets), and both of these options have 30 and 90-day recurring memberships, or 30 and 90-day one-off payments, so you should be able to find a membership to suit you. Sign-up is through a secure company, and there are no hidden charges.
The site itself is easy to use and looks great. There is a list of sports so you can find your favourite kind of sportsman, from cross country runners to wrestlers, skateboarders to power lifters. The guys are shown with stats and a few details. There are no technical issues, and everything looks perfect.
It’s simple: you have the hots for handsome, young, fit and sexy lads in and out of sportswear, and you only want images. That’s what you get at Fit Young Men and for a reasonable price too. There are a few dick flashes, and a couple of videos, but nothing pornographic. The work is of an excellent standard, the site looks good and works well, and updates are reliable and regular. Quality is excellent, and there are a couple of sign-up options to consider. You’re not going to find a better place for fit young men than Fit Young Men. See? Simple.
