In an online gay porn arena full of twinks and college jocks, the mature 30- and 40-year-old men at Men Over 30 are a refreshing change. It's been over a year since we visited this site; they've added another 60 videos and redesigned their site with some cool new features, so let's take another look.
At the top of the member's area there's "next week" and "cumming soon" sections that feature the next two videos coming on deck. Then they present the current video with some pictures, model names, and a brief description of the action. From here you have a few options: you can watch the video, read a longer description, or check out the photo galleries.
On the right side of the member's area, and also at the bottom of the member's home page, you'll find a link to the Video Vault, which houses all 356 episodes produced by Men Over 30. There are also links to the four bonus sites included in your membership: Extra Big Dicks, Circle Jerk Boys, Boyz Party, and Boys Gone Bad; three of these update weekly as well. There are also links to eight third-party video plugins in a variety of niches.
There are currently 356 videos on Men Over 30. When the site first opened up a few years ago they were offering solo jerk off and hardcore sex videos, but currently they mostly offer hardcore sex scenes - only three of the last 40 updates have been solo jerk-off videos. So every week you'll get a new hardcore video, and occasionally you'll get a solo. Each episode detail page provides the models' names and stats, and the models are linked so you can find other episodes they have filmed with Men Over 30.
Then you have the video options: You can stream them in two different sizes of Flash and you have several download options. There are three sizes of WMV, one Real Player, and a QuickTime version that you can watch on your computer or mobile device. Older scenes only offer two download WMVs.
With the streaming video there's a neat feature where you click a button and a series of thumbnails appear across the bottom of the player. Each picture represents a segment in the video, allowing you to jump quickly to the cock sucking, fucking, or the cum shot.
A tab in the viewing area gives you a full description of the guys and the scene's action, and another tab takes you into the photo gallery. The description not only provides you with a blow-by-blow account of the scene, but they give you a bit of background on the men: where they're from, their sexual orientation, what turns them on. Then Men Over 30 will pose a random question like: If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and could only have one book what would it be? They're fun, and I liked reading them.
The photos are a mix of digital stills and screen grabs offered in thumbnail galleries and slide shows, but there are no downloadable zips. I like that they offer both kinds of pictures because the screen grabs capture the cum shot action, and some of those jizz explosions need to be freeze framed to appreciate them fully.
The men themselves are a nice mix of amateurs, first-time porn guys, and gay porn stars. The guys are over thirty, but sometimes a man's scene partner will be younger. I watched a hot video of a hairy, muscle bear fucking a 24-year-old, blond guy's tiny ass. It was on fire! There's a nice variety of hairy and smooth men, some have average bodies while others are quite well built and approaching bodybuilder status.
The only thing I'd have to complain about with Men Over 30 is that the episodes follow a predicable routine: making out, sucking, 69 cocksucking, and fucking in three positions. It's hot, but I'd be happier if they mixed things up a bit and give us some variety.
Men Over 30 is a good, solid site with weekly updates and lots of downloadable video options. Since our last review of this site, Men Over 30 has gone through a site re-design and it looks fresh and sexy. They've added some new search options to help you zero in on the kinds of guys you like; cock size, age, cock style (cut or uncut), tattoos, ethnicity, and hair colour. Overall I really liked Men Over 30. The men are consistently hot and the site has a lot of options to keep members happy. If you're tired of twinks and college guys, Men Over 30 has a nice offering of men to get you revved up, and those four bonus sites really gives you a lot of hot videos to watch.
