Pros: + What video content there is, is VERY hot
+ Updates on average 2 - 3 times per week, though not consistently
+ Extensive user forum (though this is flawed)
+ As far I can tell, no regional billing
+ No DRM
+ Choice of two good billers - CCBill or Verotel
+ All-exclusive content
+ The only pure, true CFNM site I have yet found
Cons: - Have gone back to being a picture-only site - as of August 6, 2012 no new videos have been uploaded at the time of this review. NO warning of this in preview, no explanation of why in-site.
- Pictures are good-quality, but downloading is a joke - no zip files, no collections - must download each picture one by one
- Very expensive ($39.95 1st month, $34.95 after), especially now no more videos
- Poorly-designed site with poor search functions, ancient design and a mess of a forum
- Forum is completely ignored by site management, no suggestions seem to be taken on board.
- Downloads and streaming the slowest I've ever seen on any site.
- $1.95 additional joining fee if using Verotel, never found that at any other site.
- Each story is split into many small scenes which constitute each update
- Many videos still unique to a sister-site - see below.
Bottom Line: This is my third review. I am writing it with a heavy heart, because this site has so much potential and could easily be the best CFNM site ever, but it's taken yet another one of its abrupt policy reverses, so it's on entirely the wrong track again.

What I will say is that CFNM.net is, in my opinion, the only true CFNM site on the internet. The scenarios and stories are superb, the models incredible, the acting is good and believable - focusing purely on past content this site should be scoring my first ever 100.

So how did we get to 60 as a score for a site which can produce the best content ever?

Simply - they cannot decide what they want to be - a picture site, or a video site. They change their minds and their policies more often than the guys get naked!

CFNM.net has always described itself more as a picture site, and they have a "sister" site, CFNM.TV, which is supposed to be the video site. Sounds fair and straightforward - you want pictures, you join this site. You want the videos, you join CFNM.TV.

That could work, except CFNM.TV is a lousy video site, and CFNM.net is a lousy picture site.

CFNM.TV, according to the previews, hasn't been updated for months. It doesn't have all the the video content CFNM.net does, even though it's supposed to be the video site, and what is does have (some of which CFNM.net doesn't have) is riddled with the most intrusive, crappy DRM I've ever known which makes you log in to watch each video, won't work unless you use Windows, and means downloads stop working the second your subscription expires - you CANNOT download to keep.

As a picture site, CFNM.net is lousy because although the pictures are high-quality - well-lit and professional - for a so-called picture site they are a joke. You get one size only, the viewer is clunky, and you CANNOT download the photosets as one file - zipped or not. No, you have to click on each individual picture (and each story has hundreds), then click on the "download to computer" link and download each picture manually. This would take you weeks of painstaking work.

When I did my last review, CFNM.net seemed to be improving. CFNM.TV was active but seemed to be abandoned, with no new updates. The video updates were being uploaded to CFNM.net, and they were also uploading old footage previously exclusive to CFNM.TV but WITHOUT the DRM. I was hoping they were going to upload the CFNM.TV-exclusive stuff as "new" updates, then when they'd done it all, quietly close CFNM.TV.

Nope! When I left the site last July, I was almost done downloading the last of a video set. When I rejoined six months later, I downloaded the last couple of updates from that set and then found the entire six months worth of updates after that were photo-only. No mention of this in the preview, nothing on the site I can see about a change in policy - it's just back to photo-only.
However CFNM.TV seems to only have had one update with a video of some old CFNM.net content. So, we're back to two sites which between them have incredibly hot content, but which are so badly designed and run you can't satisfactorily access either.

CFNM.net has an extensive forum where these and my other complaints all as listed above are discussed - but from what I can see, nobody from the site itself ever answers or pays the slightest bit of attention to anything said on the forum. The forum is also practically a seperate site, which its own seperate log-in, no integration to the main site, and ancient layout.

I don't intend to go over the details of the site - it's all in my previous reviews, one of which is still active at the time of writing - and nothing has changed since.

Suffice it to say, if you've never joined this site before then I would strongly recommend you do, as it has some incredibly hot content - but then accept you will never know whether they ever intend to upload more videos again, that the photos are a complete pain in the ass to download, and that CFNM.TV is a joke.

If you have joined before, certainly in the last six months, then you will already have all the video content they're offering and even if you like photos, downloading them will be such a pain I don't think it's worth joining it again.

I will certainly be cancelling before auto-renew and I have already downloaded the two videos I wanted. Nothing else on the site is of interest.

TheSquirrel (53) Congrats on a great review. Even though this site isn't my thing I can tell you took a lot of time and care to put this together.

Thank you! It's a little different to my usual as it doesn't include much technical content, but as that's all in my previous review and this review was more of a description of what's changed and how the site has gone downhill and why, I thought this type of review was more appropriate than just repeating information already available in previous reviews.

I like to review sites like this as although not everyone is into them, they still appeal to more than just a gay audience and I hope I give a unique gay perspective on what is not a gay site.

Thanks for bothering to reply, it's always nice to know when a review is appreciated!

spagett (0) Great review mate. Could I ask a bit of help and ask how you go about cancelling your membership. They haven't made it very clear how to do this.

thanks

Thanks! Sounds like you found it a little disappointing too - I hope you'll do a review! More pressure we put on them the more likely it is they'll bring videos back - they've done it before!

They never make cancellation very clear but happily it's very easy. You deal with the billing company not the site itself.

When you joined you should have received an e-mail from them from either CCBill or Verotel, whichever you chose to use when you signed up.

If it's Verotel, the e-mail will be entitled "Your Receipt". Just click on the link in the e-mail, choose "Cancel a recurring subscription" and enter the username and password you use to access the site. Click to continue and it should show you the website name and ask if you're sure you want to cancel. Click on "Yes, cancel all future billing" and you're done - you should get an e-mail confirming it's cancelled.

If it's CCBill, the e-mail will be entitled "Confirmation of Subscription XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" with the Xs being one long number. Click on the link in the e-mail and enter how you paid (usually credit card) and then your e-mail address and the long subscription number called subscription ID. Click on search and then it should find it and you can cancel it. Again you should get a cancellation e-mail.

Hang on to your cancellation e-mails just in case there's any issues with them rebilling you, but it shouldn't happen.

If you've deleted your original e-mail, just visit either vtsup.com for Verotel and enter your login details for the site, or support.ccbill.com for CCBill and there you can search using your e-mail address and credit card number if you've forgotten your subscription ID.

You'll still have full access to the site until the end of the day your subscription ends, so make sure you download everything you want before then!

Good luck and hope to see a review soon!
