Live Muscle Show delivers live bodybuilders in all their glory, including IFBB pros, semi pros, fitness models and some serious beefcake. The men here have massive physiques with bulging biceps, massive shoulders and pecs, huge thighs and hard, muscled asses. Some are ripped and some are big and beefy, and it's quite obvious every one of the models here spends plenty of time sweating in the gym. A lot of the performers here are guys I've watched in videos on other sites including Muscle Hunk or Power Men, which are sites from the same company.
The men here are not only hot and well-built, they're very accommodating. I got Carin Cameron to peel off his shirt and show off some muscles, and masculine Lucas Diangelo put on a one hell of a show including stroking his enormous pecs and some hot naked posing; all I had to do was let him know in chat what I wanted to see next and he did it. Ripped and sexy Fritz Helm blew me away with his most muscular pose, and when he stripped down to his jock strap and played with his hardening cock as he showed off his powerful biceps, I was in muscle-worship heaven.
Live Muscle Show had 4 to 8 live bodybuilders on whenever I checked and they were available for free chat with some posing, and were also available for live one-on-one or group shows for a per-minute charge. While that's the centerpiece of the site, that's not all they have to offer. The site also offers profiles and pic sets from 154 models, some of whom may tell us a bit about themselves. Some have free pics, some charge per set, and there's over 1600 pay-to-own videos, as well; half of which are archived live shows, the other half are home videos and videos taken at the gym.
The live shows stream at 470x350, and can be enlarged to bigger sizes. Quality varies from average to good depending on the model's webcam, and while most of the guys have sound in their shows, one I visited didn't. There's chat to the right of the screen, but I'm guessing that guests chat with the performers privately, so you may notice the models reading and responding to comments you can't see. You can also send a private message to the performers who can send them back to you.
Now let's talk about the videos. The videos are DRM-free; all are offered in Flash, and the newer ones are also available for download in MP4 format in 2 sizes including one for mobiles. You can see what formats are available before you buy a video, and once you pay for it, you can immediately download it or stream it if you prefer. Like the live shows, the archived live shows are available in a variety of qualities, and while many have sound, some don't. The newer archived shows are sized at 596x448, the older at 320x240, while the newer vids from Pics & Videos are sized at up to 796x448. The videos in the Pics & Videos section are sometimes quite short clips of the guys working out, or there are longer vids of naked posing or jackoff sessions.
Live Muscle Show also offers 288 photo sets. These are mostly digital stills, shot either with a camera or a webcam, but taken as stills. The older pics are sized around 500x750, the newer ones larger at around 640x1136, but sizes and qualities can vary. Some of the models offer free pics you can view without paying for, but the 288 sets require payment and can be downloaded in zip files. While some photo sets offer over 30 pics, some only offer a couple.
Were there things I didn't like? Well, free chat time is limited to 2 minutes. If you want to continue, you need to buy minutes. Some of the videos are on the short side because they're only part of a scene or recorded show. I would have liked to have the option to buy an entire scene or live show rather than a clip. I also felt that the prices for the shorter downloadable videos and the smaller pic sets were on the high side and are also not very consistent. One 12-picture set cost $24.99, a two-photo set cost $2.99 while another cost $5.01. A 21-second workout video cost $4.99 while a an almost-nine minute video cost the same.
Live Muscle Show offers the chance to interact with real bodybuilders live - we're talking competition class men of muscle, some monster huge, others very well built. Most of the guys I watched put on a great show, particularly in private shows, and the window is larger than on our last visit. The site also offers over 1500 download-to-own video clips with new clips added daily, and while some were quite short, some were pretty good watching and were DRM-free. It's fun to browse the current and previous models' profiles, see some free pics (or buy a pic set here or there), and overall I had a great time. Live Muscle Show offers the kind of men you'll see in muscle magazines and websites, only here you can get your own private naked muscle show!
