Review date: September 2016
Gay Asian Network is the premier site for admirers of hot young Asian models. Now with a fresh new design, it is a one price pass consisting of six Asian-themed sites. The newer videos are in 1080p HD and you can download and save any of them. Sites included are Japanboyz (regularly updated), Boykakke and Gay Asian Amateurs (both infrequently updated); Asian BoysXXX, Asian Boy Feet, Asian Boy Nation and Gay Asian Anime. At this review update the sites have a total of 1500 scenes, along with some bonus DVD movies and videos scenes. In a landscape without many decent quality choices for gay Asian porn, this one price pass means good value for fans of Asian men.
The Gay Asian Network tour begins on the non-members homepage with more than a dozen explicit high-quality video clips. Just click on the first thirteen graphics for recent episodes in the Videos area. These give you a good idea of the overall quality and shooting style which varies somewhat from site to site. You can further explore the rest of the video scenes, the model inventory and the bonus content, but anything else you click on will take you to the join page.
A recent design update showcases an attractive color palette along with new content display. The Home page features large graphics displaying recent episodes, photos, models and new bonus content. Within each of the Video, Photos and Models areas there are some search and sort features and cross-links to related areas.
The Men and the Action
With the exception of Japan Boyz, we're never told from which Asian country an individual GAN model originates, as if it doesn't matter if the guy is from Thailand or Malaysia. These slender, nicely muscled guys are almost all in the 19-24 age range, and many of them sport good-sized uncut tools and gorgeous, smooth bubble-butts. Caucasian, European and Latin guys can be found in the bonus sites and feeds.
There are very few professional gay porn models in Asia. Therefore the guys who perform in the Gay Asian Network videos are amateurs who don't play to the camera, but just get busy and have sex without a lot of frills. Shot mostly indoors, the episodes include solos, duos and group scenes featuring passionate deep kissing, mostly uncut cocks disappearing down open throats, vigorous ass licking and fucking, creamy facials, toys, water sports, and foot worship. The Japanese guys are definitely more into kink, so the majority of kink scenes are found in Japanboyz. There is some bareback content on these sites, but bareback episodes are not identified. Here are the themes for all six sites:
Japan Boyz: 498 videos - Kinky Japanese amateurs.
Gay Asian Amateurs: 362 videos - Guys from other Asian lands, infrequent updates.
AsianBoysXXX: 168 videos.
Boykakke: 303 videos - Asian group sex with cum in the face, occasional updates
Asian Boy Nation: 124 videos. Asian Boy Feet: 43 videos - Toes and such, only a couple of updates since 2010.
Gay Asian Anime: 5 videos of graphic novel style porn.
The production values of the videos vary across the different sites included in your membership, however most of the camera work is on the no-frills side. The camera doesn't necessarily linger on particular angles, poses, or close-up shots, and the light is not always perfect. After a while you get used to it, along with the sometimes impassive faces of the Asian models. However the technical quality has improved markedly as the back catalog has been upgraded to high-definition, and some of the oldest have simply disappeared. Unfortunately, a few of the videos include the pop and flash of still photos being taken as the scene is being shot.
The exclusive videos in the network total 1504 videos, averaging 16 minutes in length. This is an increase of 211 more than last year. There's no DRM on the downloads and over 1000 of the videos are available in HD.
Video formats and sizes vary according to the site and the time added.
Videos will stream in Flash, sized at 960x540 pixels, with a toggle to full screen.
Almost 80% of the videos can be downloaded in MP4 format; most of these have a top size of 1280x720 pixels with bitrates of up to 5,000 kbps (though the newest are 1920x1080) and are available in two smaller sizes. Older videos are smaller and lower quality, in MPG format, with MP4s in smaller sizes.
Screens: All videos have a small-sized MP4 option suited to play on mobile devices and the majority have an HD version suitable for large screens.
Image and Other Content
The GAN sites share almost 1545 image galleries. There is a liberal mix of video capture sets along with digital photo sets. The vidcap sets are average in size and vary a lot in quality, while the digital image galleries are of excellent clarity and composition.
Gay Asian Network also adds a nice bit of value to your membership with the addition of 12 full length porn movies and a bonus site called Gay Asian Anime.
When you sign-up there is a pre-checked offer to join another membership site (which will rebill unless cancelled); be sure to uncheck this if you don't want it. Also, the trials are very cut-down: you can only watch six videos. They do tell you this, but it is well below the "Join Now" button and so could easily be missed.
The GayAsianNetwork is still one of the best values for porn fans with a taste for horny young Asian guys in solos, duos and groups. The viewing quality of the videos has been steadily improving, especially the newest ones, although overall clarity -- even of the HD videos -- could still be fine tuned. When you add the bonus DVDs and the soon-to-come scenes from Asian Boy Nation included in your membership this network is a good value for Asian lovers.
