Review date: March 2018
The first thing you'll notice when you begin a tour of Maskurbate is the fresh young jocks of this Montreal-based site. They are a breathtaking group of masculine, muscular guys, many with big juicy cocks, in high quality, well-produced videos. These 18- to 26-year-old French speaking men perform self-loving solos, steamy duos, and get their dicks worshiped by webmaster Pascal. The big difference between this site and other sites is that many of these gorgeous amateur studs wear a mask, although this has been occurring less frequently in recent updates. Intrigued? Then read on.
The Maskurbate tour allows you to browse through the entire video collection and model index, but you can only watch 5 preview clips.
On the sign-up page there is a pre-checked cross-sell to another site. Also, be aware that the trial provides streaming access only.
The Maskurbate homepage starts you off with a large rotating image for the most recent episodes. Below this is a grid of sixteen thumbnails of the latest scenes, each of which opens to a full length video. You will also find a listing of the most popular men on the site.
It's easy to get around the site by clicking on "Videos," "The Men," or "Photos" across the top of the page, and each of these categories offers some drop down menus to help you find what you are looking for. You can also use the search tool on the top right hand side of the site.
The Men and the Action
Maskurbate originates in Montreal and lovingly presents masculine and muscular men. Most of the scenes are either solo videos or involve body worshiping and a blowjob from the eager webmaster Pascal. There are just a few hardcore scenes, and it is definitely time for more of them. Some videos open with an interview; these are in French, with English subtitles.
The guys are carefully chosen for their perfect physiques. As anyone who has visited Montreal strip clubs knows, some French Canadians have been blessed with huge, uncut dicks -- along with friendly and quirky personalities. And it's funny about the masks: after a while you hardly notice them. Though the performances can be quite riveting, we'd like to see fewer solos and Pascal-aided scenes, and a lot more hardcore action.
The videos look great, with close attention paid to clarity, light and sound. The camera catches the guys in many poses and moves around them to catch a variety of medium and close-up shots. The cumshots are always caught, and the videos are equipped with a catchy musical soundtrack.
There are over 360 exclusive video episodes on Maskurbate. The average running time for a full-length session is 15 minutes. Over the past couple of years there has been a regular weekly update. And there are no download restrictions, so you can download and keep them as long as you like.
The videos will stream in-browser in MP4 format in several qualities. Most of these (over 70%) can be resized to a maximum default size of 1200x650 pixels, or can be toggled to full screen and viewed at a maximum quality of 1080p HD.
Approximately 70% of the MP4 downloads are now available at 1920x1080p HD (6000 kbps). Older ones max out at 720x540 pixels (2000 kpbs). There are several lower quality options.
Screens: The site design is responsive and so works well on all devices. The high definition MP4s look good on a TV-sized screen.
Image and Other Content
The site has been working steadily on adding image galleries and now has almost 360 image galleries featuring average sized images to complement the videos.
There is a single free scene offered from Falcon, which is a teaser to convince you to become a member of that site.
Maskurbate has taken a unique idea -- men in masks -- and done well with it. There are now more than 360 videos, the site is updating regularly at once weekly, and many of the videos are available as HD downloads. Though quite a few of the guys don't have masks any more, this site has real personality and the models are guys you probably won't see anywhere else. The abundance of big, uncut dicks doesn't do any harm either!
