Interesting Niche But Annoying & Frustrating Presentation
There is a good amount of content here, but getting to it can be a major hassle, and is sometimes downright impossible. Navigation is very awkward - models are listed out on separate video and photo sections which don't link to each other. Very often you'll find a model you like, but when you try to track down his video or picture set, you'll find it's been "archived" and is no longer available. Say what? Weirdly, the old archived material can apparently be periodically requested by users, and it is then brought back to the site at the top of the photo or video lists, making it seem like new content (even though in some cases the content is several years old - making it very hard to keep track of what's truly new, and what you haven't seen or downloaded before. Photo quality is pretty good, but there are far too many repetitive pictures, causing the site to break each set into as many as 12 sub-galleries, which can really be annoying to have to flip back and forth through to get to the pics you want. Video quality varies from small and very fuzzy to DVD-quality at very high file sizes - which will very quickly eat up the site's annoying 5G daily download maximum. Oh and once that happens? You're locked out completely for 24 hours. Not even any access to the pics.
This site could be a pretty good one if they'd get their act together and (1) make all the content available all the time (without any of their annoying "archive" BS), (2) have a model directory that links all photos and videos that each model appears in from one page, (3) lose the annoying daily download limit, and (4) put all photoshoots in single galleries, rather than breaking them down into so many sub-galleries. Until they do that, I'd suggest not giving them any more of your hard-earned money - they won't be getting mine.
Site tour gives the impression that there is much more content here than is actually the case. Almost all models are "coming soon" (not just the videos, as the site implies). Further, even the few videos that are on the site are not all full scenes. Nice photography and great-looking models, but the site needs to grow A LOT to make it worth the membership.
I signed up for the trial on ccBill but the login information won't work. I wrote to both ccBill and the site's webmaster about it but haven't heard from either one after several hours. Not sure what is going on with this site, but be careful signing up for it because it doesn't seem to be very well run right now.
I joined this site out of curiosity, since you don't see much Middle Eastern porn out there. Unfortunately, this site is about as bad as they come:
* Very small collection, with just over 40 videos and no bonus content.
* Videos are very blurry (more like the quality you'd have expected in the very early days of online porn), and take forever to download.
* File sizes are way too large given their short length and terrible quality.
* No updates in over 2 years.
* Really unattractive performers, used in scene are scene.
* Most clips begin mid-action, as if half the scene had been cut.
* Pics are screencaps only, and very blurry.
Basically, someone needs to close this site and put it out of its misery before anyone else wastes any money joining it.

- Lots of content
- Unique niche (guys appear to be "the real deal" not generic plastic pornstars
- Excellent picture quality
- Not much variety in terms of scene set-up
- DRM and daily download limit. Why does anyone use DRM anymore? These sites probably think they're making more money by forcing customers to come back to their sites again and again, but how often does that really happen? More likely, they're losing more money from customers who refuse to sign up for a site with DRM-protected videos.
Could be a great site if they lost the DRM and allowed unlimited downloads.
It also makes it harder to know what's going on with BangBros when you can join through so many different network sites - if I had seen this TBP page and noted all the user warnings, I never would have joined. I'm almost tempted to cut and past my warning message on all the TBP listings for all related BangBros sites as well. Just a really bad experience here, and yes, TBP needs to block them.
I'm surprised TBP hasn't blocked this site as they've done with other sites that engage in shady and deceptive business practices. All the other users' warning comments written before mine should be a pretty major indication that something is not right here. I had the same frustrating and expensive experience as other users: I thought I was signing up for one site, but simply by clicking on a video from a site I thought was included, suddenly found myself with an entirely separate subscription to a new set of sites. I'm also 100% sure I unchecked the pre-checked cross sale box upon signing up for the original site, but was still charged for the trial membership to yet another site. All of this meant I now had to cancel THREE memberships when I only signed up for one, and I'm still unsure if one of these sites was even canceled at all, since the specific site name did not show up on the list of cancellation options. They've got some interesting content here, and a lot of it, but I strongly warn people to steer clear until this site engages in more ethical billing practices.
I was a fan of Bel Ami for years (back when we used to go to video stores to rent porn). I finally decided to check out their website, expecting the same high standards I remembered from their videos and DVDs, but was surprised to find it lacking in many ways. They've got a lot of content, but the quality is often lower than you'd expect.
Navigation is pretty clunky - the galleries don't link directly to the movies they're associated with, meaning you have to hunt around to figure out which pictures correspond to which videos. The pictures are also pretty small, and galleries open up in separate windows which, if you hit backspace rather than hitting the tiny "x" to close the gallery, ends up backing you all the way out of the site (though you can hit the forward button in your browser to skip having to re-enter your name/password). More importantly, there are many galleries that have no movies associated with them at all - so there's actually a lot less video content here than it first appears when you tour the site. This can be really frustrating when you find a smoking hot guy's pics or screenshots, then realize there's no way to see the movie they came from.
What movies they do have often aren't as clear as you'd expect (even the HD ones) and worse, many of the videos are streaming-only - and there doesn't seem to be any way of knowing which ones will or won't be downloadable - you just have to click on the movie's thumbnail and hope you'll see the download buttons when the window opens.
Bel Ami has some of the most beautiful and well-hung men in porn, shot by some very talented photographers. The site isn't awful by any means - it's just not up to the standards fans should expect from them.
This is actually a group of sites where you can sign up for some or all of them at an overly steep price. The tour gives you almost zero information which is never a good sign. Once you sign up, you'll find that navigation is awkward, site is very amateurish, photo and video quality are both poor, content is a hodgepodge from several different genres and sources, streaming rarely works, and video downloads are easily the slowest you will ever encounter. It looks like they may have some interesting content here, but you'll be lucky to access much of it given how long it takes to view or save any of it. Unless they revamp the site and bring the quality and functionality up to 2011 standards, this is pretty much a total rip-off.
Lots of content, both pics and videos, and frequent updates. Mostly solos, but with a good number of duos and groups thrown in to mix things up. Super fast downloads, and file sizes aren't crazy high like on other sites, even on the highest quality stuff. Fairly simple navigation, though it would be nice if both picture and videos linked from a single models' directory gallery. Video and picture quality isn't as good on the older stuff (about half the content on the site), but it's still decent. Overall you get a lot of bang for your buck here, so if you're into mostly-straight Latin guys rubbing one out or getting busy with each other, this should probably be your first stop.
This is usually one of the highest-ranked gay sites out there, and with good reason. There's a lot of content, the guys are smoking hot, the updates come regularly, picture and video quality are excellent, navigation is straightforward, and downloads are speedy. The scenes do start to feel a bit the same after awhile, since there's not much variety in settings or set-ups. Also, even though there's no firm download limit, you may find yourself temporarily locked out if you try to download too many films in one sitting - so those with fast internet connections may want to pace themselves a bit and only save a couple of films at a time if you don't want to get a slap on the wrist from the site, and then have to grovel with them to restore your access.

- Good selection of hot, hung models
- Decent amount of content
- Plenty of photos
- Videos are downloadable, pretty good quality and have no DRM
- Reasonably priced
- Some older models' videos are broken into many clips (sometimes 10+ for a single scene)
- Uneven photo quality in some sets
- Firefox warns that it's a suspected attack site, but I did not find any problems
Site could use a few improvements, but for the price it's still worth checking out. Recommended.
Decent selection, but you can only download entire movies rather than individual scenes, and there are no preview pics. All you see is the front cover of the movie (and sometimes you don't even get that), so there's little to go on before downloading the very large AVI files (quite a few exceeding 1GB). Site has potential but it needs to be beefed up quite a bit. Right now, the current bare bones approach makes it hard to recommend.
I signed up for trial but never received a password. I tried to use the site's automated password retrieval but kept getting an error message. I wrote to the "contact us" asking for my password but never received a reply (or a refund). Looks like the site's owner is asleep at the wheel, so probably best to avoid this one.
This site has some of the hottest models you'll see anywhere - lots of ripped bodies and big dicks, all shown in a good variety of settings. The guys also look like "real" people: most are more ruggedly handsome or sexy than what you'd call pretty. (A lot of them look like the hot straight guys you see at the gym but can only admire from a distance.) The problem with the site is that you can't download any movies until after you've been a member for a month (which isn't made clear when you're signing up). Also, while the photography is excellent, there are way too many pictures. The photographer just sets the camera on automatic and holds the button down, meaning many of the pictures are almost exact duplicates of the ones that came before. They really should weed through these so users don't have to look at essentially the same shots over and over. Price is a little steep considering you can't download movies. Seems like they should offer different prices for streaming-only or downloadable. There's also a couple of extra security steps you have to take when becoming a member and each time you log in which is kind of annoying. All in all, they've created a mostly excellent site with lots of content, but the hurdles they make you go through to actually get to it and keep it are a buzzkill.
Truly stunning models - there is not a single dog in the bunch. Excellent quality videos which, though large, download pretty quickly. A bit more photo content would be nice - especially including money shots (of which there are surprisingly few). Only real complaint is that most scenes are pretty much the same unimaginative set-up over and over: hot guy outside or on sofa jerks to orgasm, then showers off, goes into bedroom, jerks and cums again. A little more variety in terms of settings and wardrobe (e.g., athletic gear, suits, underwear, socks, etc.) would be a welcome addition. Still, you won't get an opportunity to see better-looking guys than these jerking themselves off anywhere else.
Trial is pretty much a total waste of money since it only lets you view about a dozen pictures in full-size before directing you to purchase a full membership. Movies cannot be downloaded with trial either. Very limited amount of content not really worth the (expensive) full membership price. Probably best to avoid this site.
This was a nice attempt at something different that unfortunately didn't really come together. It was good to see some "real" looking models, and also cool to see them doing their thing in more natural settings (though there were way too many soft-focus, dimly-lit shoots in bed). Downloads were also very quick. The biggest downsidea for me were the lack of pictures to go along with the movies and the fact that many of the models appeared over and over. The site still managed to get a decent number of videos up before calling it a day, though, and at $9.95 without any annoying rebills, you might want to check it out.
This may look like a brand new site but it's not. Most if not all of the pics and videos are identical to the stuff on "Next Door Hookups". There's a good amount of content here, and it's pretty high quality stuff - though all the scenes start to feel kind of generic after you've watched a few of them. All in all not bad, but it seems a little shady not to make it clear that this is old stuff from another site that's being repackaged.
Trial access allows you to download only ONE movie, and then you will be locked out for remainder of trial period (you can't even look at the photos). Also, files are huge and downloads are SLOW. Not recommended.
