VGMH Review: Fantastic Foreskin


A little penis history is in order before we move on to the site review for Fantastic Foreskin.  The vast majority of men appearing in American smut from the 1970's- 1980's were circumcised.  Sired right after their fathers returned home from WWII, the parents of these "Baby Boomer" boys were encouraged by the medical community to have their foreskins cut off for sanitary/health reasons (the minor surgical procedure was covered by insurance and was very profitable).  Clergy went along with what had been a predominately Jewish religious tradition for the same health reasons (and because removing the foreskin made the penis head less sensitive and thus was believed to keep men less interested in sins of the flesh).  In a highly condensed version, that's why a baby boy born in 1957, who later appeared in smut magazines like Playgirl in 1973, were overwhelmingly circumcised... just like the millions of other American males in those generations.

Robert Chandler examines the foreskin on a model
By 1993 (when many of the tattooed twinks appearing today in smut were born) the medical community had changed its tune somewhat.  These days, moms seem to be more prone to cutting it off of their sons than their husbands are, because women remain afraid of getting infections from the cocks they let inside of themselves.  Enter Robert Chandler and his new site, Fantastic Foreskin. That a relatively new site looks as polished as this one does is not by accident...Robert first cut his smut chops with Real Guys Exposed.   Fantastic Foreskin is an evolution of sorts, as it replaced Real Guys Exposed, with the main difference being that the focus is now on that precious extra skin dangling on all those naked men.  Robert's experience at selecting a variety of masculine men to drop their drawers shows.  From porn professionals to street hustlers and true amateurs making some extra cash, Chandler shows an appreciation and respect for his models and audience. 
 VGMH gives this new site a high rating of 90 and expects even greater things as it grows and matures during its first year of operations.   Says Robert:  "I intend to be a hub for the foreskin-loving community. I want to provide great foreskin erotica. I’ll give you art, restoration info, live chats, movie reviews, homemade user videos and guys from all over the world. I also want to get contributions from other foreskin lovers. I don’t just understand foreskin fans. I’m one of you."

The content for Fantastic Foreskin comes from two separate geographic areas: North America and Eatsern Europe.  This means there's men showing their natural skins from American, Latino, Canadian, European, Indian, Russian, and Australian cultures. It appears that the lads from Europe are possibly acquired content, while the blokes from North America feature models posing specifically for Fantastic Foreskin, often with Chandler appearing alongside his men. Most of the guys are on the younger side, with model applications accepting men between 18-40. The  free tour offers sample photos of the roughly 56 models /photo and video trailers. 

These are not just pretty boys (although there are plenty of them as well).  Kit Deschanel could be the waiter at your favorite restaraunt. Mature looking and very hairy Lance Phoenix is a real find.  If Calvin comes across as cool and jaded, that works in the bedroom, too.
Content is more than solo masturbation.  It includes sex toys, 1-on-1 hardcore sessions including oral. fucking and dick docking, and sometimes sexual interactions with Mr. Chandler.   Oftentimes, Chandler interviews the model and undresses him at the same time, which is a unique and very honest approach that looks to be unplanned and not edited or scripted.  For some models, talking about sex while being undressed by another man often leaves them in a state of semi-arousal by the time their shorts finally get pulled down...a minor VGMH request for future shoots would be to capture them totally unaroused, soft and small before that skin starts to pull back as they get excited. 

Based on what VGMH followers have already expressed an interest in with other sites, I asked Robert if any of his models would be captured peeing in addition to cuming.  For a foreskin site this is especially a relevant question, as this process both lubricates and moistens.  Robert said that peeing scenes are in the works.  If that happens, the current introductory price would be a real bargain compared to what other sites charge for such specialty content.

Branden up close and very personal
Updates are weekly and Fantastic Foreskin provides a monthly calendar with hyperlinks to the new models right inside the calendar.   This is a wonderful feature that all sites should offer.  The current library includes dozens of downloadable videos (over 76) including three "behind the scenes" flicks.  Video quality is good, with distinct differences between the North American work and the Eastern European scenes (some of the older European films are not as high in quality as their North American counterparts).  There are multiple options for video viewing. Download the full movie in for Quicktime (.mov), iPod/iPhone/iPad (.mp4), and Windows Media (.wmv).  People on the move can stream the movie in Flash (.flv), Quicktime, i-stuff, and WMV.  Speeds were more then adequate, and newer videos were a crisp 720x480.  Another positive is that Robert understands the beauty of still photography, and there are zip-downladable galleries to go along with the videos.  These are not video captures, but high quality camera shots.  Newer images are bigger and sharper at 1024x576. Older pix are smaller - 792x594.  They did not disappoint.
Lance is aged to perfection. 

This is one of the few sites VGMH has reviewed where the main page selection tabs all actually work and look to be updated.  "Behind the Scenes" features videos and photos of models during their shoot.  The "Blog " offers news and information on anti-circumcision.  There's also erotic stories, polls and more.

Calvin is cocky in more ways than one
As a specialty site, Fantastic Foreskin is going to primarily excite the admirers of natural-cocked men, and if you fit into that camp then you might want to consider a membership. Currently a non-recurring one-month admission costs $22.75 and a recurring (meaning the least you will pay for is two months) costs $37.50 or $18.75 per month).  Other options include 90 days recurring for $39.75 and $72.75 for 180 days non-recurring.
