||- Horribly expensive
- Ridiculous one-time joining fee on top with Verotel
- Updates are reasonably constant but slightly erratic - no definite schedule and you'll sometimes wait up to a week
- Only Verotel and Segpay available, even though they use CCBill on sister site CFNM.net
- Some later content overdoes the cheesy "comedy" element at the expense of sexiness
- Could do with some more variety in the clothed guys, though this is improving
- Feedback can be left, but they never respond directly
- Even "high quality" download is modest sized - no HD stuff here.
||CMNM is a unique site from the makers of CFNM.net. They've taken the increasingly popular CFNM (Clothed Female/Naked Male) concept and done it for gay men.
I cannot find any other site apart from their sister site First Auditions which does anything like this, so that makes CMNM unique.
You can tell that it's from the same studio as CFNM.net as many of the models, studios and props used are identical, but that's no bad thing as they are hot!
Since all the models are men, they've made it different by having mainly straight and the odd bisexual man as the naked guy being humiliated and put through his paces by the clothed gay men. The site remains absolutely true to the concept the clothed men stayed fully clothed throughout.
The naked models used are hot - usually between about 18 and 35 and convincingly straight in most cases. There's a decent range of body types and I found the vast majority of them attractive.
The site follows a fairly standard formula - the guy is stripped off naked in the first video, then penetrated with a dildo in the next, and finally wanked off until his cums in the last.
This did get a little repetitive after a while but lately they've spiced up the formula a bit with a welcome dose of creativity, using more themes and stories such as prisoners violated in police custody, footballers used by the managers of their team etc.
The costumes and uniforms for these are generally good and the acting is generally convincing enough for you to suspend disbelief.
I would say though that they still aren't quite as creative in the way they humiliate and use the guys as they are at CFNM.net and one or two of the storylines attempted to introduce humour - bad idea as it was just incredibly cheesy and unfunny and once was absolutely unsexy, when they were rimming a guy and then discussing which brown sandwich spread his ass tasted like! Weird and a real turnoff!
Still, overall CMNM is a totally unique and very well done site.
As usual with this studio the letdown comes from technical issues and value. Until recently only WMV was available. They have now improved this with MP4 files, but even the higher-quality of the two download options is a modest 360x640 - no HD here! Sound quality is decent, though.
The streaming is acceptable but just flash-based so not always easy to jump around. Search is basic, as is the site layout.
At an eye-watering $39.95 for the 1st month, plus a further $1.95 one-off joining fee if you use Verotel, which I do as I've never even heard of the alternative SegPay, you'll need to hand over $41.90 to join this site, and a further $34.95 a month recurring, it makes it all the more disappointing that it updates only on average about twice a week and that's sporadic - sometimes you'll wait a week or more without explanation between updates. Bizarrely, CCBill is not an option even though sister site CFNM.net lets you use it.
I find the content is good enough, and unique enough, to justify the price occasionally but I never feel I get enough to justify recurring billing even at the slight discounted rate, so I tend to join the site every six months or so. I wish there were rival CMNM sites as I feel they know you have nowhere else to go and so feel they can charge what they like.
If this site was better value and updated more often and more consistently, it would easily get into the high 90s for me. As it is 81 is a generous score considering the issues but I feel it deserves it for the uniqueness and quality of the concept, if not the technical execution of it. This site is good, but it could be great - so typical of this studio!
