Nightcharm offers a collection of "premium theaters" together in one big member area. There are 32 video channels in all providing us with all kinds of men from hairy hunks to Aussie amateurs and from bareback pigs to Asian lads taking loads on their faces. It's been six years since we last reviewed Nightcharm, so they're well overdue for another look.
You'll find a huge variety of men in the offering. There are a couple of channels featuring hairy porn hunks like Rear Stable and Fetish Force; there are a twinks at Teens & Twinks and more on the two Asian channels. You'll find plenty of jocks and athletic types, a couple of the sites feature older guys (think daddies, not grandpas), and there are some amateurs and new faces. And there's a mix of bareback and condom sex, guys sucking and fucking, solo jack-offs and raw gangbangs, and there's even some fetish sex.
Nightcharm's videos come from what they call premium theaters, which are a fancy way of saying third-party leased video feeds. In the member area you'll find video channels with content from gay porn favorites like Rear Stable, Falcon Studios and High Octane; there are collections from porn sites like Hot Dads Hot Lads, Jake Cruise, Cyber Bears, Cocksure Men, Bare, Amateurs Do It, Fetish Force, On the Hunt, Straight Men, Bang Bang Boys, Sex Gaymes, Teens & Twinks, Laughing Asians, Dirty Boy Video, Boykakke and bareback sex from Ricky Raunch, Dirty Dawg Productions and Treasure Island Media. There are also 11 theaters listed lower on the page from Lucas Entertainment (more about those later).
So what is a third-party feed exactly? Video feeds (or plugins, as they're also known) are pre-packaged video collections from a variety of producers that site owners can feature on their sites for a cost. Usually a site owner can pick and choose from the entire catalog of offerings and tailor the channels to beef up their own original content. But in the case of Nightcharm there is no original content; everything you find in the member area is leased. It's not a bad thing because there are a lot of videos to watch, but think of Nightcharm as a smaller Netflix of gay porn - there's a lot of stuff to watch, but very little of it is new.
The videos play at 650x364 and you can select one of three speeds, but I recommend choosing the high speed because it gives you the best quality, especially in full-screen mode. I can't easily tell you how many videos are available on the site because there's no easy way to count them. The Rear Stable theater, for example, has 277 videos, but Hot Dads Hot Lads only has 32 videos and Cyber Bears has 142 videos. I'm guessing based on seeing these video plugins on other sites that Nightcharm offers about 2,700 videos.
There used to be a lot more at Nightcharm like toons and erotic stories, as well as oodles of galleries, but they have all disappeared. These days all you'll find in the member area are the 32 videos channels. The tour says there are daily updates, but most of the channels aren't adding new content because they're no longer producing videos. Two weeks into October 2016 and Rear Stable and Hot Dads Hot Lads have added one video each, Falcon has added two, and Treasure Island has added three, which is seven updates in two weeks. The other channels have fixed inventories and aren't adding to them.
There are 11 channels listed from Lucas Entertainment, but I can't tell you anything about them because they weren't working when I visited Nightcharm, and didn't work later when my editor checked. Finally, the tours claims of high quality and high-def porn is a stretch.
I found there's just not that much at Nightcharm to hold me as a member. Their entire member area is made up of third-party video channels that are available on other member sites, and with the lack of any original content of its own, there's just not much compelling reason to join this site. Still, it's not expensive and there's a good library of videos here if you just feel like browsing a wide variety of streaming gay porn.
