Pros: +Good production values
+Reasonably frequent updates
+Increasing number of HD quality videos
+Around 300 exclusive videos
Cons: - Navigation very basic
-No model search index
-Photo sets not downloadable as zip files
-The bulk of the photo sets are taken from the video shoot
-No bonus material
Bottom Line: Man Avenue is what I'd call your bog-standard, bread and butter "entry level" gay porn site.

It focusses mainly on solo videos. Not a problem for me, as that's what I'm into.

The videos are shot with excellent production values, another "glossy" site of mainly muscular/athletic guys. The producers have, however, chosen to add cheesy music (think Richard Clayderman) to a lot of the solo videos. Now, I think I'm broadminded, but I don't know anyone who finds Richard Clayderman sexy...

There are a few duo videos, but that's as hardcore as it gets...

Updates happen about once a week and videos are around the 15 minute mark.
The newer videos are all shot in HD. I'd say that accounts for about a quarter of them. All are available in WMV, m4v and quicktime, and all are also downloadable to iPhone.

There are only one or two stand alone photo galleries, the vast majority being photos of the video shoots And yet again, photosets can't be downloaded as a zip file. There isn't any slideshow function either, so each photo has to be opened individually. Annoying.

The navigation is poor. All videos are posted in date order and there's no search function. Even worse is that there are several videos of the same guy, but there's no link to their other shoots, so you have to trawl through the 300 odd videos to find what you want.

All are fully downloadable and download speeds seem ok.

The site also lacks bonus material. For $24.95 you'd expect a little more material. There is a blog, but the videos shot in the blog also appear on the main site, so it appears a bit of a cop out. It would be also good to have the facility to comment on the videos.

Billing seems reasonably secure by CCBill or Epoch.

All in all this is a pretty average site. Some nice looking guys, some good photography, but for the price you'd be better off with something like Randy Blue, Blake Mason or English Lads, which are far more interactive, have a bigger back catalogue and seem to update more frequently.

gaypornolover (38) Yay manholelover's back with another review for me! I really look forward to a new review from you! I checked out the site preview and I gotta say it looks pretty clear it's a solo site! You need to wipe down that monitor more often big boy! ;-)
Navigation sounds crap which would really annoy me and I hate music in porn! I don't mind solos but this sounds a bit too straightforward to me. Like you say, kinda of like "beginner porn" LOL!

dracken (246) What?! Who doesn't love Richard Clayderman ;)

I hate it when porn adds unnecessary music to videos and the whole industry seems plagued with this.

Anyhow, good solid review and although gay porn is not my cup of tea, thanks for the info on this one.
