Review date: June 2016
Back in the day Tyler, of Tyler's Room had a great idea. He would launch a huge, inexpensive, one price site that would include tens of thousands of video streams, hundreds of exclusive original video downloads and over 130,000 stunning digital images. It would be perfect for surfers who wanted to sample a whole bunch of different porn genres. This popular site has undergone many changes over the years; and the current design presents the variety of its "content apps" in a form that's attractive and simple to access. But over the past few years the overall personality of the site has diminished and in the past year no new exclusive videos have been released.
The non-member's homepage displays a grid of "apps" representing all the sections of this huge site. Click on any one to open a screen grab with a description of the content, a few sample images, and a video count. Just one content area, Tyler's Room Originals, has explicit preview clips. The tour does give a good idea of the massive amount of porn you get for your monthly membership fee.
The homepage is identical to the tour's homepage, consisting of 60 large image links in a grid pattern; each one leads you to a "Content App," whether it's downloads for you to keep, streams from some of the best gay porn producers, digital image galleries, or many of the best known movie feeds. There are prominent text links so you can access recent content updates and most of the "apps" have categories and a search box.
On the minus side, because the content is aggregated from so many sources, the design and navigation can vary moving from one "app" to another. Also, it is hard to dig deep into the 15,000 DVD titles in Tyler's Room Movie Feed because it doesn't allow you to move more than one page back at a time.
The Men and the Action
The men in the 400 all-exclusive videos are all young Americans and Europeans. Then, going beyond the exclusives, the site's huge porn collection offers every type, size, and ethnicity of model you can imagine. The pictures and scenes cover the complete spectrum of themes, settings, and action. There really is something for everyone. But Tyler definitely has a bias: in the exclusive videos, the video downloads, and the massive number of image galleries, muscular young collegiate guys age 18-27 are the most common type.
The original exclusive videos and the streams from major studios tend to be better quality than the DVD downloads and the movie feeds, but they all load quickly and stream smoothly with a choice of qualities. Around 1/3 of the 400 exclusive videos can be streamed or downloaded in HD. Tyler has taken the time to carefully select all the content on the site. Given the varied production dates of the video scenes and the various sources there's a fair amount of variation in their technical quality. The more recent ones are either excellent or very good, the older ones are average and there is a large range of shooting styles and video production techniques.
A big aspect of the value of your Tyler's Room membership lies in the 400 original, exclusive videos. These high quality videos, many of juicy, young Euro-guys and duos, average 10 minutes in length, sadly, there have been no new updates since early 2015. There are an additional 1400 video downloads which are scenes from DVDs, with new ones added each week. Don't forget the Tyler's Room movie feed, which has 15,000 streaming DVD titles from AEBN. Then add the huge number of video feeds.
The videos are available in various formats, speeds and sizes depending on when they were added and whether they are "Originals" or DVD scene "Downloads." All of them will stream in an embedded Flash player of either 640x480 or 640x360 in size.
The "Originals" are the highest quality, with the more recent 35% in true high-definition playback in Windows Media or MP4 format, playing in a large 1920x1080 window at bitrates of 3,000 to 9,000 kbps. Smaller files are also available.
The DVD scene "Downloads" are, aside from the Flash streams, in Windows Media and MP4 format, playing in either a 640x480 or 720x540 window at up to 3,000 kbps.
Screens: The site is fully mobile compatible.
Image and Other Content
There are many very high quality image galleries in "Tyler's Room Photo Sets", totalling over 130,000 digital photographs. These are available in a standard size and in an eye-popping large size.
You'll also find high quality image galleries accompanying each of the 400 original videos. These can be viewed in a spectacular larger format or in a smaller standard size and average 130 images per gallery. There is an adjustable slideshow feature as well.
In addition to a large number of movie feeds now found in the Tyler's Room, many quality branded content feeds are also available, including more than 1700 scenes from membership sites, such as Fratmen, Jake Cruise, Lucas Entertainment, Cocksure Men, Video Boys, and CitiBoiz. Then there's "Tyler's Room - Movie Feed," with many thousands of scenes from 15,000 DVDs in the AEBN library.
The content is rounded out in the "Tyler's Room - Webmaster" section, which has his blog and even XXX pics and videos of the handsome young Canadian man himself.
Tyler's Room provides countless hours of erotic fun, offering a clean, straightforward design and tons of frequently updated, non-exclusive porn -- all for a very reasonable price. But the site lacks the personality it once had and the exclusive content updates have now stopped.
