Review date: April 2015
Wank Off World leads to a solid and reliable medium quality experience. There are 325 exclusive videos of above-average quality, along with 21 streaming video feeds from Hard Gay feeds. The videos have gradually been re-formatted from Windows Media to MP4 in order to play well on devices, and a limited search function has been added. In addition the site is now responsive so it looks good on various sized screens. Updates occur weekly and there's no DRM so you can download and keep the videos as long as you like.
When you start on the non-members homepage you'll see a page of ten large graphics that showcase the site's exclusive videos. Each of the videos is described with a few lines of text and five decent sized images. Click on the large image accompanying each video description and it will open to an explicit preview clip. There are ten episodes on each of the following four pages and all have preview clips, although the clips on the later pages are shorter than the earlier ones. This is a much improved tour that gives you a good window into this medium quality cache of almost 400 exclusive videos.
The site features a clean and fresh design with lots of white space and prominent text links across the top of each page that guide you to the videos, the pictures, and the bonus content. A search function has been added. Across the very top of the page are "image categories", or a series of words that describe various types of image content. If you choose "Couple and Groups" for example, you're taken to image galleries featuring couples and groups, but these do not include links to the videos that are related to the images. Why no cross-linking of the two types of content? And as you might expect, the video pages do not link to the image galleries.
The Men and the Action
The young men of Wank Off World are a varied crew, mostly in the 18-26 age range. Sadly, no stats are provided, including no name, age, or country of birth. They are average to good looking and get into all the major sexual activities within the vanilla zone. A majority of the new hardcore scenes are bareback.
Recent exclusive videos on WOW have a very good viewing quality with fairly professional camera work. Non-exclusive videos are small in size and below average in quality. The pace of these scenes lags at times. The editing could be tighter, and we'd like to see more emotion and responsiveness in the models. But don't worry: sometimes there's a voice off camera telling the models to look more involved ...
There are 378 exclusive videos averaging 25 minutes in length on Wank Off World, with a new one added each week. There is no DRM on the videos, so you can download and keep them as long as you like.
Most of the exclusive videos on WOW will stream or download in Windows Media format only. The most recent 40% (added since November, 2012) are high-definition, 1280x720 pixels, with an odd range of bitrates, from 2100 to 6000 kbps). Another 25% are sized at 1440x1088 pixels with a bitrate around 2000; the oldest half are just 768x576 or 640x480 pixels in size with bitrates around 1800 kbps.
MP4 downloads are also available for the most recent 25% of videos. These are , 1280x720 pixels, from 2100 to 3000 kbps.
Image and Other Content
There are over 300 exclusive image galleries averaging 200 images in each, and in the bonus area there are more than 2,600 non-exclusive image galleries. The exclusive images tend to be better quality, and are medium-sized (768x576 pixels). Navigation of the pic sets is basic; you have to keep going back to the thumbnails to move to the next full-sized images. There are no zip files or a slide-show feature. In addition to the pics, there are 21 video feeds and a stories section.
