Today we're re-visiting a site called Gay Life Network. With a name like this, you might expect a mainstream gay site or something with lots of interaction, but this is actually a gay porn site. There's a mix of horny college-aged guys - twinks and jocks - plus some muscle hunks and average guys. Expect to find amateurs and porn performers, smooth and slender guys and some who are tattooed, and there's even the occasional man with a hairy chest and ass, although expect more in the way of smooth guys. There's also a nice mix of white and Latin guys, not to mention a variety of dick sizes from average to really big.
When it comes to action, expect fucking, rimming and sucking cock, as a lot of the episodes are hardcore. There's lots of outdoor sex, including some pool scenes, some hot threesomes and a few sex in the shower sessions. You'll find bottoms riding cocks or getting boned doggy-style, not to mention more positions, and there's some nice long blowjobs. And oddly some of the more recent updates are solo interviews with some twink performers, and these are pretty short.
Gay Life Network, unlike most other networks, has 192 of its own videos, and the rest of the sites in the network add an additional 701 videos for a total of 893. While Gay Life Network no longer updates its own videos, some of its sites do update. Last month 7 new videos were added, and there were 14 new videos the month before (October, 2013). So far this month there have been 2 new vids and it's the 8th; the site seems to update at least every 4 days or better.
Most of the videos come with pic sets. These are average to fairly good quality screencaps sized at from 640x480 for the old pics to 1000x563 for the new ones. Hands-free slideshows and downloadable zip files are both available, and you can right click on any pic and save it if you don't want the entire set.
The network part of Gay Life Network includes 7 additional sites including several twink sites, a bareback site and a twink toon site. There's also 3 bonus video sections, but the bottom line is that full members get access to 893 videos. Some of the sites, including Lollipop Twinks, Beddable Boys and Teach Twinks, have added new content within the last 10 days, where a few of the sites (including this one) no longer update. BTW, members also get limited access to 7 additional gay porn networks from the same company.
I'd say the biggest issue here is that the site itself (and a couple of its network sites) no longer update, although luckily some of the sites do. But there's a couple other things that you should be aware of. First, a pre-checked offer on the join page that I suggest you read to decide if it interests you. And also trial members get only limited access to the site's content till their memberships recurs, so if want a taste, a trial could be just the ticket, but if you want access to everything, you might want to go with a full month. Last, the most recent site updates are short interviews - 2 that I downloaded were under a minute.
Gay Life Network offers hot twinks, jocks, average guys and Latinos in mostly hardcore sucking and fucking action, although there are a few solo jerkoffs and some interview videos. Unlike other networks, this one has its own videos - 192 of them - as well as 701 from the other sites and bonus sections. There are versions of all the vids that are compatible with iPhone and other mobiles, a plus for those who like their porn on the go. And while the actual site no longer adds new content, other sites in the network do, and recently there have been anywhere from an update every 4 days or better. While Gay Life Network doesn't have a real theme or focus, and the vids aren't high quality HD scenes, those those looking for variety may find the network delivers what they're looking for.
