Review date: November 2015
You may have heard of Mr. Skin, the famous celebrity nude site. While Mr. Skin is obsessed with naked actresses, Mr. Man covers male actors and celebrities. Mr. Man doesn't deal in fakes or unauthorized sex tapes; instead you'll find real pics and clips of real celebrities. As of this review there are over 9750 brief clips of around 4200 actors and other celebrities. The site adds new content every day. While you couldn't call this a conventional porn site, it is definitely appealing to those of us who want to see "all" of our favorite actor, model, or athlete.
The tour page begins with a large graphic inside a player window. There's a steamy clip to get you interested in what the site has to offer. The video montage highlights some of the sexiest clips on the site; but while the typical clips inside are hot, they're also very fleeting. Move down the tour page, and you'll see 24 screen grabs of movies or shows that are featured on the site. Each has a player arrow inside it, suggesting that it will open to a preview clip. Instead, clicking on any of these takes you to the signup page.
The sign-up page could be more transparent: it does tell you that: "Subscriptions renew automatically unless otherwise stated", but only at the very bottom of the page, in small print, well below the "Purchase" button. And while they tell you that the annual membership is actually a $72 one-time charge, that isn't clear at first because they phrase it as "$6/month." It doesn't help that they make the annual subscription the default choice. On the positive side though, there's a very good promotional monthly price of just $15.
Mr. Man has a clean and contemporary design. It also organizes and labels its huge amount of content very well. In the top tool bar there's an area called "Browse" with a drop down menu so you can search the "Celebs," the "Movies and TV," or the site's inventory of "Pics and Clips." The "Celebs" index allows you to do a name search or filter by hair color, ethnicity, or whether or not a real penis gets exposed. The "Movies and TV" index allows a general title search as well as filtering by year of release or genre.
The "Pics and Clips" are all tagged with relevant keywords so its easy to jump around between terms of interest. You can make your search as detailed as you want - but combining terms means narrowing your search, not broadening it. An extra feature is the "Playlists" that are compilations of clips on a variety of topics, though not all of the clips are assigned to playlists so far.
The Men and the Action
The men here are all known actors and personalities, including some musicians and athletes as well. Almost all the pics and clips are from movies and TV; there are no "sex tapes" and no fake photos. Since this isn't porn, the skin tends to be exposed for seconds at a time and only in the context of the story. Shirtless is by far the most common form of nudity you'll find, followed by butt shots. There are also lots of cock shots, although they tend to be brief and from a distance.
It's not just sex symbols that make the grade here; there's a big variety, including the likes of Billy Bob Thornton, John Goodman, and Big Bang Theory nerds sharing space with Brad Pitt and Zac Effron. A nice touch is that every movie and TV title provides a brief general plot description in addition to the description of the nude bits. Many of the celebrity pages give a history of the guy's nude moments in film.
The viewing quality of the videos is often excellent, with half available in high-definition. But because this isn't porn you can't expect lingering shots on the parts you are most interested in; more often it's a fleeting moment.
At review date, Mr. Man has just over 9750 video clips from movies and TV series, covering more than 4200 male celebrities. Many of the clips are less than a minute long; several new ones a day are added to the site.
Video will stream in an 640x360 pixel embedded Flash player that will toggle to full screen and back. About half the videos are available in three qualities, the best labelled "HD." You can also download the videos in MP4 format; half are 1280x720 pixels, with bitrates around 2000 kbps.
Screens: Handsets: there is a full mobile version of the site included with your membership. And the videos available in HD look good on a full sized television screen.
Image and Other Content
There are over 36,000 images on the site, almost all are stills from a movie or TV show. The image sets tend to be just a few pics that capture the exact moment of maximum exposure. The images are over 1,000 pixels wide at their default size and will size up to full screen at which point you can use the mouse to zoom in further. Mr. Man wants you to understand that gay men will like the site, so he throws in over 40 porn video preview clips from producers such as Falcon Studios and Cocky Boys, in case you get all horned-up from looking at hot famous people.
Mr. Man provides what it advertises: huge numbers of video clips and screen shots of many male actors and celebrities in full or partial nudity. It's well organized and new clips are added each day. Who knows why we get such a kick out of these often brief and partial views of our favorite male celebs - but we do.
