Pros: +Frequent uploads
+Excellent production values
+Bonus section
+Videos available in windows, quicktime and flash
+Some HD videos
Cons: - Pictures not downloadable as zip files
- Not all videos in HD
- Some models don't have separate galleries
-Although models are generally very hot, all of the same "type" i.e. facial hair, generally white, 25-40, but I suppose it's the niche.
Bottom Line: Men at Play is an extremely well known site catering for those who like men in suits. The videos are very well produced, usually with a plot, great sets and some good performances. The production values are extremely high. Some people may find them a bit "glossy", but this seems to be the high end market they're trying to attract.

Uploads are frequent, generally 3 x weekly. The content is a mixture of plot based movies, solo, casting and audition videos, all revolving around guys in ( and out of) business suits.

There are over 360 videos shared between the above categories and over 130 original picture galleries. The pictures are generally 600x900. The pics are easy to flick through, with a slide show option, but for some reason are not downloadable as zip files, which is a real pain! There are also screencaps of all the movies.

The videos come in low, medium and high quality, with the later ones in HD and all are available in quicktime, flash and wmv and are fully downloadable.

There are four bonus sites which have five or six scenes from the following sites: Blue Blake, Colt, Kristian Bjorn and Michael Lucas, as well as a frequently updated blog. The bonus sites only offer limited content which isn't updated that often, so I wouldn't really factor this into reasons for joining the site.

There is a very good model search facility and the opportunity for members to rate and comment on models and videos, which seems fairly well used by members.

At $25.95 the price isn't too bad given the quality of the content, and it's amazing the variety of scenarios/niches played out in what would seem like a fairly narrow category. A good mix of solo/fucking/rimming and roleplay - all very light if you're into heavier stuff, however.

This site has become a bit of an institution in the gay porn world and is definitely worth a look. However if you're not into polished, scripted scenes with plot, great sets and filming, but rather porn with a more amateur feel, then this isn't the site for you. However, with the current trend for rough around the edges, amateur or gonzo porn, this does come as a bit of a breath of fresh air. I doubt if it would sustain my interest for months and months, but certainly worth joining once to download the material.

What stops it from getting 90+ is the inability to download pictures as zip files, the fact that a minority of the videos are in HD and that the glossiness can be a bit stilted at times. But recommended nonetheless.

gaypornolover (38) Yay another manholelover review!! I look forward to your reviews and this is an excellent as ever.
I've often been very tempted by this site as suits are a big fetish of mine - but as usual with me it's the glossiness which puts me off a bit. I love fantasies and roleplay and I appreciate good lighting and camerawork, but hot as the guys are it's just too slick and they're too perfect for me!
If only I could get the quality filming and scenarios, and professional site design, but with some more ordinary looking guys! I want the usual type of the businessman you see on the train, not buff gym-bunnies!
Still they do have some hot scenes so one of those I might join for a month to download what I like and then cancel - I presume downloads work OK?

It's definitely worth a punt, but it is very glossy. Downloads work fine, although, as I'm not very good with computers, I found i could download straight to my external HD, instead I had to download to my downloads file and then transfer. Think I'm still getting used to my mac!

A Mac eh! Is that new? I am back on Windows after going back a while ago - I actually found Macs good for porn in the sense that they're more virus-resistant, but not all porn sites are Mac friendly so I'm afraid that just wouldn't do for me!
Now you do have a Mac a suggestion for future reviews (and updates to old ones) I always mentioned if a site was fully Mac-friendly in my reviews (some are partly Mac-friendly but not all content might work, for example older content may not be available for Mac although of course they still charge you full price!).
I try still to do that now but sometimes I forget - but some sites don't support Macs but don't make it clear - they'll bury it in their terms and conditions so if you join but can't use it, no refund!
It's mainly sites that use DRM that aren't Mac-friendly, and I avoid those anyway, but it's worth noting!

otoh (54) Another good review, manholelover. You'll have to forgive me being so amused/curious to learn of all these niches in gay porn, even though I guess they should be obvious! I mean, I like material featuring girls stripping out of businesswear, so it shouldn't really be a surprise that there are guys doing the same...

BTW gaypornolover - sorry to hear you had trouble with some sites on the Mac, I haven't had any issues - the only thing I can imagine is DRM as you suggested, but I wouldn't subscribe to a DRMd site. For anyone on Mac (or Windows and Linux) it's worth downloading VLC, since it plays pretty much anything.

Hey otoh just saw your reply! Thanks - I'll bear it in mind if I ever do go "back to Mac" - I haven't ruled out the possibility.
I was just using the standard Quicktime player, but where sites wanted me to use Windows Media Player seemed to be the problem - before there was a Mac version but ever since I had to use Flip4Mac some files wouldn't play.
It was mainly DRM stuff which I do avoid now anyway but it did put me off. Porn is important to me as I am sure it is for everyone on this site!
