The Male Form is up for review today, and they offer a great title to let you know exactly what they offer here. This is a nude photography site by someone named Dylan Rosser who focuses on the male body as an art form. There's lots of light play here, with good shadows and interesting looks, great photography, and some very high-end male models. These guys are buff, athletic, in shape, or whatever you want to call it. I think a six-pack is the bare minimum to quality to be on the site, with eight or 12-packs being the norm. $20 gets you in for the first month, and that drops to $13 a month if you decide to stick around.
Photography and models are great.
The content here is definitely the main draw. They get great-looking guys, and capture them with great-looking photography. It's a great combination that works well for many sites out there. I love the use of light and shadows, and the black and white they do for some sets. It really helps define the shape and tone these guys have.
Other Good Stuff:
They shoot all their own material here, as expected. They do sell it in their store, but I don't think they release it to other sites or anything.
Updates come in weekly here with generally a new photo set added. Sometimes you'll get lucky with a second set as well.
The recurring price is quite nice here. They drop it down to $13 a month, which is definitely on the low end of membership pricing.
Not a ton to see overall.
With no videos, and only a bit over 140 photo sets, this really is a pretty small site. You can easily get through their entire collection here without wasting a lot of time, and then you're kinda stuck with nothing to do in between updates.
No videos available.
It's a bit expected on a site like this, since they really focus on the photography, but it will piss some people off I'm sure. They have no videos here whatsoever, not even in the "behind the scenes" fashion that some similar sites offer.
Download/gallery setup isn't the best.
They basically list all the full-size images on the main gallery page, instead of offering the standard thumbnails that link to the full-size images on a new page. Plus, they vary the size of the images to make them look like a nice gallery I guess, but I just don't get it. Some images are smaller, none of the images are huge, there are no zip files or anything, and the flash browser isn't all that great either (you can't save the images, and they seem on the small side).
No bio or background info available.
Since they shoot all their own material, I was really hoping for some great bios and scene info here. Unfortunately, nothing is available at all in that area. They're really missing a huge chunk of personality they could offer on the site by ignoring these parts.
The navigation isn't great here. It's not terrible, since the site isn't huge, but the layout just feels a little cluttered and cumbersome.
The photo galleries are on the small side, with an average of 20 pics or so available in each.
The images look nice here, but could really be larger. If they're stuck on the current gallery layout they have going now, perhaps adding in a zip file with the largest images possible would be a nice addition.
Some great content and photography, but the site itself is a little lackluster.
The Male Form definitely provides in terms of content here. The photography and quality are great, as are the models they choose to photograph. The site as a whole is definitely a bit lackluster, mostly in terms of a small collection, lack of options, and lack of features. There are no videos, which can be expected on a site like this at times. However, even the photo gallery layouts are not the norm, and I think they could do better in terms of offering larger photos, and just more options (multiple picture sizes, zip files, etc.). Navigation isn't great, either, though it's not a huge site to get around at least. The last bit of disappointing news was the lack of model info, scene info, etc. There's no real personality here, or any way to get to read more about the guys on the site. I love the content they offer, but it just doesn't quite live up to paysites these days in terms of numbers or features; that doesn't mean you won't have fun with what they do offer at least!
