World of Men is a gay porn portal featuring content from nine decidedly different producers, and while each has it's own filming style when it comes to the types of guys and sex, there is some crossover. The site was just getting off the ground when we reviewed it two years ago, so there's a lot to talk about.
World of Men was originally a line of DVDs produced by gay porn star Collin O'Neal, and it was later rolled into a membership site. When O'Neal left the business he sold the site, and a while later, in December of 2015, the site was redesigned and headed off in a new direction as a gay porn network. This network brings together content from nine producers. Four of them have standalone sites that update: Bareback That Hole, Bear Films, Breed Me Raw and Hairy and Raw. There are also five producers whose sites have been shut down and their content now appears here: Sweet and Raw, Brash Boys, Lavender Lounge, Bareback Twink, and Red Hot Latinos.
As a result, there's quite a range of men here. Bareback Twink, Sweet and Raw, and Brash Boys feature twinks and Euro boys from 18 through their early to mid-twenties. The performers here are generally smooth guys with bodies ranging from slender to athletic. Red Hot Latinos offers Latin guys with slim to muscular bodies who are mostly in their twenties. Bareback That Hole and Breed Me Raw bring us mature men in their mid-twenties through to their forties with athletic to muscular bodies; you'll find quite a few hairy men here and the fucking is bareback. Bear Films and Hairy and Raw are both packed with bears, cubs, and daddies ranging from muscle bears to big-bellied men. At Bear Films most of the older scenes feature fucking with condoms, but a lot of the new scenes have barebacking; Hairy and Raw offers only bareback sex.
So the action here is a mixture of bareback and condom sex, and there are also around 100 solo masturbation videos. There's generally not a lot of set-up or story lines here. One video opens with a guy jacking off outside and a masked man sneaks up, surprises him, then fucks the masturbator's ass. In another video a guy driving a jeep picks up two guys walking through the forest; they need a place to sleep, so he offers his home since there are no hotels in the area. As you can see, getting to the sex isn't a complicated affair and many more of the videos simply open with the men making out.
Most of the action happens in home or hotel settings with guys getting off together in living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms, but sometimes they have sex in playrooms, bathhouses, gyms or outdoors. Most of the men fuck in duos, but there are some group scenes of threeways, fourgies and small groups. Most of the bottoms are happy with cocks, but some like to play with dildos. There's some kinky stuff here with a handful of BDSM scenes featuring bondage or leather men playing a little rough, as well as some gloryhole sucking, a couple of spanking scenes, some felching (sucking cum out of guy's ass), and lots of cum eating. But most of the action is guys enjoying each other's bodies, sucking, fucking, and shooting their loads.
There are 813 videos at World of Men, and these are offered to stream in MP4 format. It's a bit hard talking about the video sizes because the player is adaptive so the video sizes depend on the monitor and browser you're using as well as the production date of the original release. For instance, some of the oldest videos have original sizes of 640x360 to 720x576 but on my 26-inch monitor they play at 1034x830 and the quality isn't the best because the videos are stretched to fill the player. Newer productions play at 1476x820 and their quality is better, quite good actually. You can also use the full-screen option, which has varying results, but even the newest videos suffer some quality loss.
The videos are not included as downloads for members, although many have a download option that allows to you purchase them at an additional cost. I didn't buy any downloads, so I don't know specifics about sizes and formats, but they generally cost between $7.99 and $12.99.
Each video has a description, and most are fairly detailed. On the video page you'll also find the performers, and their names are clickable so you can find more of their videos. There's also a tag section that includes applicable categories. You can also use the free-form search to find more of what you like.
Finally, on each video's episode page is a gallery of pictures, and these are a mix of digital photos and screengrabs at a variation of qualities from good to below average. The pics range in sizes from 1600x2400 for the very best down to 667x1000 for the older ones; there may be other sizes, too. You can download a zip file of each photo set or you can save pictures individually; there's no slideshows, but you can browse pic sets in thumbnail galleries.
As far as updates are concerned, it's complicated. None of the content is dated and the site runs on auto-pilot. For those four sites that are still producing content – Bareback That Hole, Bear Films, Breed Me Raw, and Hairy and Raw – when a video hits the ninth month after it's original release date, it's pulled into World of Men. So there should be four "new" videos every week, but if you've been a member of any of those four sites you may have seen them before. For the five sites no longer producing content, their scenes are recycled from the back pages to the front, with a couple hitting the homepage every week to make it seem like they still update.
There are a few more issues to talk about. First, watch for a pre-checked offer on the billing page; there are three processors you can use to sign up, but only one carries a pre-checked offer - luckily it's easy to opt out of it. Second, the tour claims there are over 2,000 scenes, but I only counted 813 videos. Third, you'll have to be lenient when it comes to video and picture sizes and quality because with nine producers and content spanning years of production (maybe even over a decade), there's lots of variety. Fourth, this is a streaming-only site, so any downloads offered will cost you extra, but those are clearly marked. And finally, five of the nine sites aren't producing new content, and even for the four that are, the scenes aren't new by the time they hit this site.
World of Men offers a wide variety of performers and a good sized collection of 813 videos with a few added every week. While I can't tell precisely how often the site updates, it seems to be adding four scenes weekly plus some recycled updates. Still, the site gets a mixed review from me. There is a good collection of videos for you to enjoy throughout the month of your membership, but unless you like all kinds of men from twinks to bears, huge chunks of videos may not appeal to you, and that reduces the value. My suggestion is to take a look at the tour to see if there's enough to satisfy your tastes.
