Gay DVD Empire is an all-you-can-watch gay porn video site that offers a large variety of over 2,700 DVDs from over 60 studios. A site this big is bound to have all sorts of guys and action; expect barebacking, big black dicks in white asses, twink sex, threesomes, first-time amateurs getting off on video and tons of DVD titles featuring horny black studs in action. And the best part about this site is that there's no limit on how much you can watch. One monthly fee lets you view as much you want, and who doesn't like that?
When you enter Gay DVD Empire, the member's area homepage lets you find movies in four main ways: Movies, Categories, Scenes and Tags. The "Movies" section arranges the videos by DVD title and you can easily sort these by the date added or popularity. You can also re-sort the DVDs by a few limited (but not all) categories, performers, or studios. There are tons of categories, including Latin, Big Cocks, Classic, Military and Cumshots. Once you click on a DVD's box cover, you get a fresh page where you'll watch the entire movie.
But the best way to get the most out of Gay DVD Empire is to navigate the "Scenes" section on the homepage where a DVD's scenes are usually all added in order. It's clunky, but get you're the best options on a "Scene" detail page. The video player is at the top and the DVD box cover, title, studio, and tags fall underneath. You can like, dislike, favorite, or tag the scene to watch later. But my favorite feature is the visual timeline, which consists of 24 thumbnails representing specific moments in each scene and clicking any jumps you ahead quickly and smoothly. And since Gay DVD Empire doesn't have any picture galleries, these large thumbs are a quick way of previewing the guys and action in the scene.
On the sidebar of the "Scene" page you'll find links to the other scenes from the same DVD, but there's also a "Recommended Section" where you'll find 10 others. A "more" button will give you more recommendations, if you need them.
Back on the homepage you can use the "Category" section on the homepage, but it's not populated very well. For instance, there are two "Hairy" DVDs in that "Category," but I saw plenty of other titles with hairy men. Likewise, "My Dad Loves Black Cock #4" didn't appear in the "Black" category because the "Dad" is white. Go figure.
The site fairs better in the "Tags" section on the homepage where they have 101 scenes in the "Hairy" tag, and that white Dad does appear in the "Black" tag. There are upwards of 100 tags and some are more useful than others, like 69, big butt, small penis, or blond; but others like anal, big cocks, or blowjob are pretty useless because they're so heavily populated - "Anal" has 2,607 scenes listed.
The Gay DVD Empire tour says they have 2,500 DVDs and 7,000 scenes, but once inside the counts are actually 2,762 DVDs and 10,161 scenes. The videos play in an embedded Flash player with a width of 795 pixels, but the height depends on the source material. Most fell in the 380 to 445 pixel range. You can view the movies in low, high, and DVD qualities, and even if you start watching a movie in one quality, you can flip to another without losing your place in the video.
There's also a full-screen mode, and again, the results will depend on the original material, but I found most scenes held up well. Gay DVD Empire has blazing fast servers and I didn't experience any problem with playback; in fact, I was quite impressed, especially with the fast-forwarding capabilities.
There are a few things I didn't like about the site. I can't tell you how often they add new content because none of the videos are dated. More details about the movies would be helpful: descriptions, cast listings and consistent use of tags or categories. The DVD "Movie" page doesn't break down the DVD by scenes, but funnily enough the "Scene" page does this even though it's only suppose to offer one scene - this seems backwards. The usefulness of their free-form search is limited because it mostly shows results based on a DVD title, so "foreskin" won't return results of every video with an uncut cock, just DVDs with "foreskin" in the title.
I don't know how often Gay DVD Empire has been around, but they have a good offering with 2815 DVD titles offering 10161 scenes. These are largely from lesser-known studios - no A-List studios here - which isn't actually a bad thing. I didn't recognize most of the titles, and that means I'd have a lot of "new" stuff to watch. I do like the all-you-can-watch model and there's certainly heaps to keep you entertained through the duration of your month, whether you're looking for rough sex, mature men, college boys, deep throating or leather. Once you get used to the quirky navigation and organization on this site, I think you'll be off to a great month of watching and jacking. And there's certainly enough here to keep you going for months.
