Review date: June 2019
MindGeek's Men.com is one of the largest gay porn sites online, approaching 3000 excellent quality HD videos, updated daily. The idea from the beginning was to offer exclusive themed content with big name porn stars. Now, 900 models are showcased in scripted, professionally produced videos in eight sites: "Drill My Hole," "The Gay Office," "Str8 to Gay," "Big Dicks at School," "Jizz Orgy," "Men of the UK," "Gods Of Men," and "Top To Bottom."
There are irritating aspects of the Men.com user experience, the most recent being that the default membership is now streaming only, with the option to add downloads for $15 a month, after you become a member. There are also many upsells throughout the site.
On the tour homepage you will find a display of the latest and most popular videos. Clicking further in will either a) take you straight to the sign-up page or b) lead you to the scene page where you can watch a hardcore trailer and then browse through the scene indexes.
The sign-up pages don't tell you that the default membership is now streaming-only or give you the opportunity to simply sign-up for a downloads included membership. (You must first join, then once you're a member, upgrade to downloads). Do not take the pre-selected "Premium" trial; it's a bunch of extra streaming content that is not worth it.
The site's navigation and content display is fairly clear and well-organized (however, you may have to surf past an immediate upsell to sister sites before being able to access member content). Once you're on the members' homepage, click on "Explore"; an advanced search feature will drop down that allows you to filter by date, site, tag and keyword. You can also "Favorite" any scene and watch it later on your playlist.
All the video download options are displayed below the video. Click on the "Download" button and a choice of video quality will pop up (OR if you have not upgraded to downloads-included, you will be asked to pay for the upgrade). One thing to look out for is the "Settings" button, which is where you can choose the quality of the stream.
We have mentioned the many upsells on the site. You will often find when you log in that the first page is full of ads for other sites; just look for the small link to get to men.com proper. There are further upsells to live cams, on-demand video, other sites and a "premium" membership (which is streaming bonus content).
The Men and the Action
The men of Men.com include lots of well known porn stars, most between the ages of 18 to 30, all with nice builds and handsome features. The physical types range from masculine and muscular to younger collegiate and a few twinks. There are almost no solo scenes so just about every video is hardcore sex. Name just about any room of a house, any type of activity, or any type of office or commercial space and you're likely to find a video for it.
Each site has a particular theme (though these are often interpreted quite liberally) and there's even a brief story line at the beginning to set the scene. In mid-2018, the site started adding bareback videos.
Drill My Hole; 1407 scenes: the bottom-boy screws up somehow -- he damages property, attempts a robbery, loses an important file, etc. -- and is taught a lesson.
Str8 to Gay; 600 scenes: a straight guy is somehow convinced to have sex with another guy.
Big Dicks at School; 237 videos: college guys get it on with each other, and with their teachers and coaches.
Gay Office; 182 scenes: man-to-man sex in the workplace.
Jizz Orgy; 144 scenes: group sex scenes.
Men of the UK; 117 scenes; at least one of the models carries a UK passport. (Last scene, July 2016.)
Gods of Men; 180 scenes: a range of guys in hardcore encounters.
Top To Bottom; 22 scenes: experienced tops who bottom for the first time; no recent updates
The viewing quality of the videos is excellent; their sharpness and clarity is quite outstanding. The video camera work is professional, complete with establishing shots, multiple sets per scene, and a variety of close and long shots on the sex action.
There are over 2890 true HD videos on the Men network, running over 20 minutes each. A new video is added each day.
If you have a downloads-included upgrade, video can be downloaded in MP4 format, in four qualities. The top grade is true high-definition, with very high bitrates from 8,000 to 10,000 kbps and a default size of 1920x1080 pixels.
Video will stream at a default size of 960x540 pixels, with an easy toggle to full screen. Choose the stream quality by clicking "Settings."
Screens: Men.com is fully responsive, so you can browse and view on any device. The scenes look great on a TV screen, whether you save them first or stream direct via AppleTV or another media box.
Image and Other Content
There are digital image galleries for all of the videos. These are excellent quality sets of 50-80 pics each. You can view average-sized versions in a slideshow or one at a time and you can download much larger versions in a zip file.
Men.com is a very large, frequently updated and excellent quality collection of professionally made videos starring many big names and some Men.com discoveries. While there are a lot of upsells on this site, and downloads now cost extra, it's definitely worth your consideration.
