Icon Male features hot sex between a mix of performers including smooth twinks, hunks, and world-class porn stars. You'll find masculine, mature men (some with hairy chests) like Adam Russo and Brad Kalvo in scenes with slender and boyish types including Liam Harkmoore, Ian Levine, and Casey Tanner; there are hunky, well-built stars including Tommy Defendi and Billy Santoro, both bearded and muscular. Some of the guys are clean-cut, while others have tattoos or a bit of a scruffy look. And you'll find some really big cocks. There's no particular type here, this site focuses more on quality and chemistry between the performers rather than a type of model or action.
The sex here is definitely hot and also passionate; you can expect plenty of kissing, cock sucking, and fucking, not to mention some ass play and cum play. Everything is well filmed to show hard cocks slipping in and out of hungry asses, men making out, and guys sliding their warm mouths up and down big dicks. Sometimes the sex is rough, sometimes it's romantic - the videos here have actual plots (gasp!) and the performers have really good chemistry, so you can expect eye contact and even tenderness in some scenes and hard ass drilling in others.
The sets, lighting, and camera work are top notch, and the videos touch on themes ranging on the taboo side - stepfather/stepson sex in "The Stepfather," inter-generational sex in "His Daughter's Boyfriend," and priest sex (starting with a confessional scene) in "Forgive Me, Father." You'll also find married and closeted men looking for love and lust in "Men Seeking Men," and the latest update is from a movie called "Prisoner of War," focusing on men in uniform during World War II. Icon Male was formed when Mile High Media teamed up with director Nica Noelle to produce a series of gay porn feature films focusing on high-production values, passion, intimacy, and great sex, and so far that's exactly what they are delivering.
Some of the recent videos, like the latest one starring Billy Santoro and Dallas Steele and another with Michael Roman and D.Arclyte, feature more daddy-on-daddy action and no taboo themes. But don't worry - there's still plenty of daddy/boy action and themes like stepbrother sex, not to mention closeted guys getting it on.
Icon Male continues to grow, now offering 372 videos. Each video is a full scene from one of 95 DVD titles. Each video can be downloaded in seven sizes of MP4 including three HD sizes, the largest of which is 1920x1080, and a variety of smaller sizes that should be great for mobiles and tablets. All the videos are good quality or better - the smaller sizes are excellent, and even the medium-sized MP4s enlarge pretty well in full-screen mode with only a minimal loss of quality. For those who prefer to watch rather than download, the streaming MP4s are offered in all seven of the resolutions available for download.
Picture lovers are in for a treat. The site offers 820 picture sets, which are a mix of action pics along with posed sets of the performers solo and in duos. The pics are very good quality digital stills sized at 1280x1920, although shown smaller in your browser. Like the videos, these are professionally shot and lit and show off the guys and the action extremely well. Each set comes in a thumbnail gallery; you can download sets in zip files, save individual pics, or sit back and enjoy each set as a hands-free slideshow.
On our last visit, the site was updating twice a week. It's currently updating a bit randomly; sometimes updates are two, three or five days apart, but there's always at least one update per week. Last month (November, 2018) there were nine updates added; this month (it's currently the 21st) there have been four updates so far.
Good news is that Icon Male members now get access to two bonus sites. First is Noir Male, an interracial site with 40 videos and updates that are added weekly or more frequently. The second is Male Reality, offers European guys having sex in everyday situations, and while this site doesn't update any longer, it does offer 280 hot videos to download, stream and watch on your mobile.
I did find a few issues worth mentioning. There is a pre-checked offer on the billing page that if left checked will sign you up for a membership to a second site when you join this one. It's easy enough to untick, though. When signing up for a membership, you are automatically added to the site's email list, and there is no way to opt out during the join process. Also when hitting back from the billing page, you can expect a pop-up with a bot pretending to be a human rep. There's also a seasonal pop-over on the member home page, and when you first appear at the tour, you'll get a notification pop-up. Only agree to notifications if you're okay with having them pop-up in your browser at literally any time; if you don't want roommates, bosses or others seeing porn site notifications, you might want to block these.
One last thing that might be an issue for some is that there are now two other sites from the same company using the same videos, they're called Gay Super Porn and Gay All Access. Icon Male is the original site and more care is paid here; also the other two sites don't offer any pictures.
One word comes to mind when describing Icon Male - quality. The performers, the action, the photography, and direction - even site navigation is easy to use and well thought out. The mix of gay porn stars, hunks, and slender twink types deliver plenty of heat in their scenes, not to mention a sense of intensity as they suck and fuck, and the camera catches the action to perfection. The site offers 372 full scenes to download, stream and watch on your mobile; they add one or more new videos each week, and there are now two bonus sites. Icon Male has continued to give us the goods: their performers deliver heat and sexuality, and the production values are outstanding.
