I have checked and they have done an updated for March 22, but that means they did miss the March 15 update. I hope this is a one-off and that they are not going over to fornightly updates.
At least though they are honest about update dates, even on the preview, and I was glad to see they were back to actually featuring men instead of just women humiliating the viewer - and with my favourite model Andy too! Welcome back Andy!
Expect to rejoin this site in the future, though if it goes to fortnightly updates it will be less often...
Strangely just as I gave this site a decent review, they seem to have stopped updating the previews. It's supposed to happen once a week and the last update should have been on the 15th, but the 8th is still shown in preview.
Might be just a glitch but worth bearing in mind and checking if you plan to join...
This site looks like a sort of "romantic" one, in which the sex is loving and by candlelight. That's fairly unusual for gay porno, which tends to be more full-on and without much in the way of romance.
I am not sure if this type of porno would appeal to me or not, so it's not necessarily high on my "to join" list, but I wouldn't mind giving it a try one day, and it's good to see another type of porn available instead of just another cookie-cutter gay site.
From the previews my only criticism is it all looks a bit samey in terms of sets etc. Perhaps as the site grows they might get a bit more adventurous.
I strongly recommended you AVOID this site, at least for a while to come
I have recently rejoined another site in this studios "family" of sites (not a network as they don't let you access any of their other sites with a membership nor even give a discount for signing up for more than one....) called The Casting Room
I've said before in comments that I can see from the previews that this site is a spin-off from a section of The Casting Room which was called "Groping Hands" and which they've spun off into another seperate site.
I said before that they had lifted the content straight from The Casting Room to make the new site, because I could see I already owned all that content from The Casting Room.
I hoped they'd begin with that content and then make some new stuff and I think they've made some, but an update just a couple of weeks ago was definitely old content I owned already from The Casting Room again.
So they may be making SOME new content, but very little.
Anyway my main point is - I've rejoined The Casting Room and to my surprise, the Groping Hands content is still on there - I thought they'd delete it when the new spin-off site went live.
So why join this site when for the same price, you could join The Casting Room and get most of the content of this site and a load of other content too?
For now, this site is practically a clone and is not worth joining. I'll keep an eye on it to see if I can spot new content - and from what I can see they're not updating Groping Hands on The Casting Room - so it may be that in a while it might be worth subscribing to Groping Hands seperately, but for now I'd guess you can get 90% of this sites content on The Casting Room plus a lot more besides.
Thanks to sk8tershoez, one of the few other gay reviewers on this site, I am delighted to see they have listened to their customers and abandoned DRM!
I suspect a forthcoming review won't be long from me because I've always wanted to join this site and now I can.
Hopefully this will mark a start of more and more sites abandoning DRM! Well done boynapped! I do hope their subscriptions increase and they are shown that they did the right thing - I'll certainly be subscribing as soon as I can to let them know!
I've always been tempted by this site but put off by the fact that it seemed not to update - the previews never seem to update - unlike the other sites run by this studio, which are always given dated updates in their preview areas and heavily cross-promoted, this one always seemed a bit obscure and forgotten about.
It did used to have a full preview section with videos though and was mentioned, though not much, on the other sites.
Now none of the other sites seem to mention it and when I checked the homepage has no previews and nowhere to join - only a login for existing members.
I've heard of sites no longer updating but they usually still let new members join. As I know the company behind the site is still going and updating other sites, I am confused as to why they wouldn't let anyone else join.
I wonder if they plan to close the site and are only keeping it open until current members subscriptions expire?
Seems as shame as a it looked a hot site with a lot of potential to me....
Following on from my previous comment on this site, where I pointed out that it was a spin-off from the "Groping Hands" section of the website The Casting Room, I noted that the content appeared to be mainly existing content from there.
I was hoping that they'd simply transferred existing content to this site but would then start adding new content, so I kept an eye on the previews which update weekly and sure enough they did seem to be adding new stuff.
However the latest update on 26th December 2012 is definitely the same as a clip I already have - I checked the screenshot against my existing collection.
So sadly it looks like they're still putting old content from The Casting Room on here as updates.
It will be a long time therefore because I can justify joining this site, if ever, as I own most of the content already from my prior membership of The Casting Room.
I don't have a current membership to The Casting Room so I can't say if they've taken down the content from that site - when I rejoin The Casting Room in future I'll let everyone know - but if you recall Groping Hands content from prior memberships (The Casting Room used to be called First Auditions) then I wouldn't bother joining this site yet as you'll already have seen most of the content, including the latest "updates".
Disappointing - and it might explain the very ungenerous preview page, which compared to the studios other sites is very limited, with no video previews at all.
... is the excuse for a preview on this site! I've recently agreed on here with another user that having what seems to be a video ready to play for a preview and clicking on it only for it to take you to join page.
This is almost worse, as it has genuine preview videos but they are worthless - for a start I'm not sure they're even taken from the video they pretend to be from, and even if they are, they just show two men walking along a beach in shorts. No indication even that they're about to have sex!
Not a site I have any intention of joining for this very reason - as has been said on here my many users, we don't expect free content but we do expect a preview to be honest about content and give us a fair snippet of what we can expect, leaving us wanting more!
Time for all PUers to start demanding better customer service for our money and to be treated with some respect, damnit!
Each to their own I suppose but smelly dicks? Lovely! Of course computers are yet to have smell emitters but just to prove how nice and smelly they are the preview section (somehow I couldn't look away, like a car crash) the dicks are suitably dirty looking!
I think I can safely say I'll be avoiding this site!
I'm keen on some of the content on this site - and I would like to review the site - but I don't feel I can review it until I've made a purchase.
I am very scared of using a site which doesn't use an independent biller - the site seems to be quite well-known but I'd be grateful if anyone here who has used it or knows someone who has can confirm they are safe billers I can trust with my credit card details!
Thanks to Khan for listing this site for me. I was glad of the slight delay because by the time it was listed here and I was ready to click through from here and join, they'd introduced a special offer!
It expires on 25th Nov 2012 - $18.99/£11.99/€17.99 1st month then $9.99/£6.99/€11.99 recurring or add $1/£1/€1 onto the 1st month price for a non-recurring deal.
Usual price is $22.99 or $23.99 non-recurring.
Rare to get a deal open to everyone and not via e-mail so I thought I'd post.
First impressions are good and a review will follow very soon!
This site is from the same studio that runs thecastingroom.net
Thecastingroom, which used to be called First Auditions, is a site I've enjoyed and reviewed here.
Anyway that site used to have a bonus feature called "Groping Hands" which was my favourite part of the site, but they stopped updating it after a while.
This new site is obviously the same thing spun off into its own website.
I have mixed feelings about this because whilst I am hoping that this means they'll make more Groping Hands content, it does mean that they've started this site with old content I already own from the Casting Room site - I recognised a lot of the preview material.
As long as they develop it regularly with new content, I suppose it's not a clone site, but I suspect if I joined it now the majority of content I'd already have... so if you've been a member of TheCastingRoom/First Auditions, I'd hold off and wait for this site to develop further and if possible confirm it is updating before joining...
I cannot understand, based on their own preview section, how this site managed to get a decent score from TBP.
I get that it's about public humiliation, which is a genre I usually love and is sadly lacking in gay porn, but this is almost anti-gay-sex!
From the preview it seems a lot of the "action" in these videos actually involved the camera guy catching some guys having sex, then running out to show them they're being filmed - so they quit having sex and run off!
How exactly is this porn? A guy with a camera ruining a sex scene just as you're enjoying it?
Some of the videos on this site do look hot, so I'd love to join, but I was shocked at them wanting $29.99 for a streaming-only site. That's the same or more as rival sites that allow you to download all of their content to keep.
I did look into their DVD selection but they are almost as bad - $39.99 per DVD, some of which only have two scenes on them.
I am used to paying way less than that on the odd occasion I still pick up a DVD - even a new release one would be cheaper and with more content.
This could be a great site but they need to come into the 21st Century - their pricing structure seems to be stuck in the 1990s when gay porn was a lot more expensive.
