MEN review updated on 15 Dec 2018
MEN is a porn network that's all about gay sex and hot men in large, good quality videos. The performers include many of the hottest porn and web stars around including Paddy O'Brian, Raphael Alencar, Topher DiMaggio, Jimmy Fanz, Phenix Saint, Johnny Rapid, Adam Killian, Christian Wilde - the list goes on and on. There are some smooth and slender bad boys, but many of the performers here would fall into the "hunk" category, with muscled bodies and masculine good looks, plus there are some smoking bodybuilders, athletic jocks and all sorts of hot guys. Expect some tattoos and hairy chests. Action here is 100% hardcore - I didn't run into any solo scenes (more about that shortly) - and there are lots of aggressive tops pounding hungry bottoms.
You'll find some hot niche sites in this network: The Gay Office, Big Dicks at School, Str8 to Gay, Drill My Hole, Men of UK, Jizz Orgy, Top to Bottom, Gods of Men and Super Gay Heroes. There's plenty of cock sucking and fucking, rimming and rough sex, duos and group action in men's locker rooms, outdoors and elsewhere; I found some interracial scenes starring Diesel Washington and Race Cooper. You'll find guys riding cock, as well as some orgy scenes featuring at least five horny men each. There are all sorts of locations from out on a boat to inside an executive's office, and plenty of horny hunks in steamy hardcore sessions, and now there are superheroes and high-end parodies of movies like Star Wars and Batman V Superman as well as TV shows including The Flash and Star Trek.
MEN.com now offers 2,732 videos, and the network adds an update every day. The videos are DRM-free and offered in MP4 format, the largest video sized sized at 1920x1080, the newest at very good quality, the oldest at good amateur quality. The largest vids may be a bit too robust for some older computers, but there are smaller sizes including a smaller size of HD and a standard size available, and the smallest size should play on most smaller screened mobile devices. The largest videos are pretty big in file size, but unless you're on a slow connection, they're worth a little extra download time. All the videos can also be streamed. The lighting here varies from good amateur to professional, so you can easily enjoy every thrusting cock and every squirt of cum.
The videos also come with picture sets. The pics are good quality digital stills - the newest are excellent quality - and most are sized nice and large at 1663x2495, although they're shown smaller in your browser. The sets come with all the features I like to see - downloadable zip files, slideshows, the ability to save individual photos and pic-to-pic navigation. The photos are well-lit, show off the men to perfection, and there are from around 20 to 100 images per set.
When it comes to extras, there's 6,350 bonus scenes from almost 1,700 DVD titles, more than 300 more scenes than on our last visit. These are decent-sized downloadable and streaming videos in a wide variety of gay porn niches from twinks to chubs, cowboys to sex in the restroom, group action and solo jerkoffs, not to mention kinkier stuff like watersports, foot fetish action and cum eating.
Here's something I wasn't thrilled about. The MEN behind-the-scenes, interview and solo videos, including all the oldest videos, are only accessible to members who pay a dollar extra per month for VIP access. Not only that, but the VIP videos are listed in with the regular videos - you just can't watch them without the upsell. There were approximately 200 videos in the VIP section the last time we had access, and these are usually added every few months in batches of two to 14 vids at a time. The VIP access also gives members access to an ad-free browsing experience and some solo scenes that non-VIP members can't access. I don't really care for the idea of upselling members access to behind-the-scenes stuff, but for only a buck there may be some members who find the VIP access a plus.
Now let's talk about some more issues. There's a pre-selected offer on the billing page that, if you don't switch the dropdown menu to "No thanks, I'm not interested by this special offer", will sign you up for an additional recurring membership when you join this site. Trial members get unspecified limited access, and when joining the site, you are automatically signed up to receive periodic emails. When logging in for the first time, you'll land on a full page ad full of things to buy - look for "Continue to Men" on the right side of the page to get to the member area, and be sure to check the option that says not to show you the full page ad again before you do.
There's a large two-part banner at the top of every page to send members to live chat where there is free chat but you must pay for full nudity and action. The search box is now getting better results for terms that were previously showing a few, but there's still a lot to be desired. For example, on our last visit when I searched for "uncut", I got a few results. This time I got five pages worth, but there are many more scenes with uncut guys. Searching for "fuck" got 653 results yet anal got 1,008. And last, I found it frustrating that regular members find the VIP behind-the-scenes vids listed along with the available scenes even though they must pay an additional $1 to view them.
MEN has a lot to offer - handsome and often muscular porn stars sucking cock and fucking (plus kinkier stuff like rough sex and domination) in 2,732 exclusive HD videos, and the site continues to add a new episode every freaking day. The action includes a variety of hot themes - college guys in classroom sex, sex with professors and fellow students, gay office sex with men in suits, tops going bottom, hard ass pounding sex, 5-man orgies, UK hunks, heroes from movies and TV, and straight guys going gay for pay. The videos are exclusive and can be downloaded, streamed and watched on most mobiles. And there's a huge collection of bonus DVD scenes. In fact, despite the issues, MEN delivers some of the hottest men and sex in gay porn, and I always look forward to visiting the site again.
