Male Porn Pass is up for review today, and this collection of sites was actually something a little different than I was expecting. Sure, it's a gay network, with around 30 sites in various niche categories. However, most of the content seems to be DVD-based, which through me for a loop. Their setup can work, but it makes me wonder why they didn't just set it up as a DVD site from the get go, which would offer more options and features better suited to their collection. Anyhow, just $15 a month gets you in the door, which is a nice discount for our users off the normal $30 monthly price tag.
Lots of content up.
As expected with a network based on DVD material, there's quite a bit to see here. There are over 850 photo galleries, but even better, there are over 2,000 DVDs here. It's probably one of the smaller DVD sites out there, but that's a shitload more content than most paysites provide.
Updates come pretty regularly.
I don't see a set schedule, as updates seem to come in spurts, but they add new content at a decent pace overall. The last week brought 15 new DVDs (all one a single day), but the last update before that was over 10 days in waiting. Still, it averages out nicely in the end.
Other Good Stuff:
As expected, there's a pretty wide variety of content here. Site niches include bareback, orgies, threesomes, all the ethnicities, bears, twinks, and more.
Just $15 a month gets you in the door, which is a very nice savings off their usual $30 price tag here.
The videos are all streaming, but at least have filmstrip navigation setup. About the only issue I had was that the filmstrip loads sequentially, and you're never quite sure if you're at the actual end scenes or what.
Mostly non-exclusive material.
It seems that most of the stuff here is based off of DVD content, and thus, non-exclusive. They don't really specify either way, but my guess is that there's not much exclusive material to be had here unfortunately.
Nothing is downloadable.
People come to expect certain things, like video downloads, from DVD sites these days. Unfortunately, only streaming videos and non-downloadable photos are offered here. This one will be a huge deal-breaker for quite a few people out there.
Photo setup isn't great.
There are quite a few issues with the photo section here. First, everything is run through some kind of slideshow feature, which has two problems: first, you can't download anything, as mentioned above; second, the thing goes way too fast on the initial setting. Plus, the pictures seem on the small side to me, and there are no dates for photo updates anywhere.
Navigation needs work.
You can browse by site, or by viewing all the videos (or photo galleries for that matter), sortable by category. However, that's not nearly enough for a collection of this size. They need to step it up with a much more advanced search, plus other basics like a models index, list of studios, etc.
The quality here is definitely below average. To compete, they'd need to bump the whole collection up several notches.
There's a lot to see, but everything is a bit too mixed up for my liking.
As I mentioned in the intro, Male Porn Pass is just setup wrong for what they offer in my opinion. Since it's mostly DVD content, I think they could combine everything into a DVD site to make things just work better. As it stands, navigation is more complicated than it needs to be, and doesn't offer enough features. The lack of downloads is a huge issue that will turn many away as well. Updates are coming at least, though not on a daily schedule or anything. Quality could also be beefed up a bit to better compete. I think you can have a bit of fun here, but everything is just a little sub-par in terms of options and features, which would make me look for a better alternative.
