Top Shelf Studs Review by Maggie Top Shelf Studs

Review by Maggie

Released May 3, '14 , Written Apr 29, '14
Intro

Top Shelf Studs is a collection of gay scenes featuring hot, studly men having sex with each other. These handsome young men can't get enough of each other, and it's all captured in high quality original scenes. Membership is offered to our readers at $30 a month.


The Pros

  Original hardcore collection.

These are all original scenes with hot men having sex with each other. Some of the scenes begin with introductions and scene setups, others go straight for the action. You'll see blowjobs and sex, along with a few threesomes, as well. The men are sexy and live up to the Top Shelf in the title, with great bodies that they share with us and each other.

  High quality videos.

The latest movies here are HD and they look good. There are high definition downloadable mp4s in addition to high quality Flash streams. The mp4s play at around 3000k and are 1280 x 720 in size. They're sharp and really good-looking. The photos are also not bad, if a little on the small side.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Videos can be streamed in your browser using Flash in three quality settings and downloaded as an mp4.
  • Members of Top Shelf Studs also get access to the Male Spectrum Pass network. Multiple sites are included for even more original hardcore action.
  • Readers of The Best Porn can join Top Shelf Studs at a special discount price of $30 a month. The regular price is $40 a month, so this is definitely a nice savings that puts an otherwise too-expensive site within reach for a lot more people.

The Cons

  No longer updating.

It looks like it's been about a year since anything new was added to Top Shelf Studs. There are no update dates, so it's hard to get an exact date, but our counts haven't changed since 2013, and there's nothing to suggest updates are going to start up again either.

  Small collection.

Top Shelf Studs is a small site, with just 35 scenes online. While each scene includes around 200 photos and 25 minutes of video, it won't take long to see everything.

  Monthly download restrictions.

Members are limited to downloading 15 videos a month. That's extremely restrictive and would be a major issue for me if the site actually had more content.

  Content is leased out.

Though the content here is original, it is not exclusive. All of the sites produced by this company (Top Bucks) are leased out as plug-ins to other sites. While they create all the scenes, it is possible that you've seen them before on other sites.

Minor Negatives:

  • Needs more browse tools. You can sort the scenes by date and rating and name and that's it. It's a basic set-up; even for a site this small I'd like to see more tools.
  • The site could use more viewing options. It would be great to see other download formats offered and the choice of clips, as well.

Bottom Line

The scenes are hot but the small, inactive site just isn't worth it.

Top Shelf Studs unfortunately is a small, inactive, and basic site whose only saving grace is a couple dozen original HD scenes. The download restrictions are so bad, though, that it'll take you months to save even this small collection. Unless you're joining for the rest of the network, Top Shelf Studs just isn't worth it.
