Gay Key review updated on 10 Sep 2018
Gay Key doesn't focus on one type of performer or action; instead it offers a variety of both. The guys range in age from 18 to somewhere in their 40s, and they're a mix of white, Latin, black and Asian guys, some with average looks and builds, others who are hairy and older, some balding studs, some twinks and a fair helping of chisel-chested hunks stripping and showing their cocks. Average guys, footballers and jocks get involved, too. If uncut is your thing, then you'll find some foreskinned dicks on offer; there are cut cocks, as well. A couple of college type jocks stand out on the muscled side of things, and a few cute twinks grab the eye in their solos.
The site doesn't really have any one genre for its action - you'll find a mix of solos and hardcore. Most scenes feature duos but there are some threesomes and solo jerkoff sessions as well. The videos take place in various locations and with themes such as military men, cops or outdoor sex, livingroom loving and bedroom bonking, and the solos take you from cumming on the couch to spanking the monkey in the shower. It's pretty standard stuff but can be hot, and the movies come with titles that sum up their content. You'll find titles like "Shave My Hole", "Daddy Bear Cops Suck & Fuck", "Security Guard Fucked In Back Storeroom", "Jock Sniffing", which gives you some mild fetish and "Loving Sucking and Deep Fucking" sums up the general action that swings from cock sucking to dick dipping in some hungry asses.
Gay Key offers 77 DRM-free videos in MP4 format. These are offered with two options for streaming and downloading. The larger downloads are sized at 640x480 or 640xz360 at average quality or a bit better, depending partly on the age of the vid; as they're standard definition, should play on most mobiles, and each also has a smaller size for older mobiles. Expect to lose some sharpness and clarity if you opt to enlarge the videos to full screen, some faring better than others.
All but one of the videos comes with a picture set. The pics are average quality screencaps sized at 640x480 (a few at 480x360) . They are linked from the video page, not in the picture section, and there are between 50 and 110 pics per set, sized at 640x480 or 640x360 (a few at 480x360) and shown in thumbnail galleries. While there are no slideshows, arrows at either side of each photo allow you to navigate through the galleries; the pictures can be individually downloaded or you can save entire sets in zip files.
Now let's talk about updates. Gay Key has added 17 videos since our last visit 30 months ago, and six of those updates have been added this year (it's currently September of 2018). There's an update added once a month or once every other month, although there was a six month break in updates between September of 2016 and March of 2017. Luckily the network updates 11 to 14 times per week, and since Gay Key doesn't have any particular theme, those updates should keep members pretty happy.
Full members have plenty of bonuses included. Your full membership lets you into the entire Gay Hub network of 65 sites and video collections, some of which you may have heard of, holding nearly 9,000 movies, and some vids are HD. Blake Mason offers 1,256 videos and updates twice a week, Homo Emo updates weekly and offers 453 videos and Joe Schmoe Videos features 511 and adds a video every week. Among the sites you'll find twinks, jocks, Latinos, guys in suits, gay-for-pay guys, and some muscle hunks; there are also Asian, British and European guys in the mix, so there's plenty of variety. There is a collection of 2,582 network galleries which hold digital stills. Network updates happen pretty frequently - there are over 40 videos added each month.
I'm kind of thinking that Gay Key is a bit lukewarm, though those bonuses really help give it a boost. One of the main issues with the site is the infrequent and irregular updates. There is a pre-checked offer on the billing page that, if left checked, will sign you up for a second recurring membership when you join this site. The trial memberships are limited, restricting how much you can enjoy for the duration of the trial to the "12 best scenes" from the network. The top of every page in the members area is dominated by a big ad for a particular DVD, the bottom by two rows of animated thumbs that are also an ad. Gay Key's video quality could be better, too. There was a pop-up over the tour when I first entered, although it's easy to close.
There are a few more things worth mentioning. The tour is pretty misleading. First, you won't find the videos or guys shown on the tour in the member area. Second, the first page of videos shows 48 listings and below them it shows there are 21 pages, quite an exaggeration since the entire site has only 77 videos. The claims of thousands of gay porn videos, hundreds of models and daily updates refer to the network, not this site. And last, most if not all of these videos are taken from older gay porn DVDs (figure from around 1999 to 2008 or so) with all that implies when it comes to quality and size.
On its own, Gay Key offers 77 videos featuring a variety of kinds of guys sucking cock and fucking in duos and threesomes as well as some solo sessions. The videos can be downloaded, streamed or viewed on your mobile, and the site updates every once in a while. To get the most out of Gay Key, you need to look on it as the key that unlocks a large gay porn network. Full members get access to the 65 network sites and video collections, some of which offer HD videos, and there are very frequent network updates. The bonuses are what makes this membership a good value for money, although having said that, Gay Key does have a few cuties and some hot flicks, but most important is that this membership opens the door to a network with plenty of good hardcore and solo fun.
