The Manhub Review of 18 Gay Passport

First Impression

Variety is the spice of life, or so I tell myself when I get the Walt Whitman Sampler to munch on, instead of a Kit Kat, while watching Season 6 of Lost.  That's why network sites are so awesome; if one particular genre doesn't work for you, or if one particular website is whiffing, you can browse around and find something else within the same website and not have to pay any extra. 18GayPassport.com kind of promises that:  "You will never need to search for gay porn on the internet again."  Let's see if that's actually true.

Navigation

The site design before logging in is actually a bit garish.  It kind of looks like an urban setting; a concrete wall that's been tagged with neon spray paint.  Logging in, though, it doesn't really matter what it looks like.  The navigation is so simplistic in such a way that I don't complain.  It's simple in such a way that I can find what I want without having to shuffle around  obnoxious ads or anything to that effect.  There isn't any obnoxious content cluttering up the screen, preventing me from seeing 13 updates each from the 8 different websites that fall under 18 Gay Passport's domain.

Diving into those sites those is a bit deja vu-ish.  Click on Gay Cinema Club and a new window will open, where you'll have to log in again.  Cumbersome at best.  The site design and navigation is simple enough; nothing ostentatious, nothing to distract from the porn.  There's a 1/3 to 2/3 ratio going on between visual content and navigational links (like Piet Mondrian has been designing paysites).  Everything is pretty easy to find and you can get to your content fairly easily.  But let's say you want to check out Impossible Gay Cocks.  You click on the link, a new window opens and you log in again (at this point, it's a little annoying) and then the site design and layout are the exact same thing, but different.  It's hard to explain.  Some of the words change, but the design and navigation are identical.  It sells the material a bit short, I feel.  Each of these sites has their own unique personality, so why not give them their own unique site design and layout?  It's that kind of extra attention to detail that makes sites just that much more special.

Content

To review the content, the guys and the sex, it's a bit easier to combine the three.  For the most part, the sex is pretty vanilla.  There's nothing really special to any of it.  The videos can be downloaded in WMV or Apple compatible files or streamed online.  There's some original photo content, but none of it is really that special.  The content/sex that really needs to be talked about are the various websites hosted under 18 Gay Passport.  Some of them are hits: the aforementioned Gay Cinema Club is straight up fucking, and it's pretty hot.  GoGo Twinks isn't my cup of tea; maybe if it were a bit better it would be.  Impossible Gay Cocks is hot in theory and usually in execution; there's something odd and perverse about seeing assholes stretch to accommodate giant cocks. Gay Sex Exposed isn't really anything special, but it still has some hot videos; same with Gay Amateurs Club and EuroTwinks Club.  The two that really bend my mind, though, are Yaoi Place and 3D Boyfriend.  Call me crazy, but I like my sex to be real.  I don't understand why anyone would want to watch CGI-created sex (Avatar, I'm kind of looking at you here, too).

Value

Do you really need more value than full access to eight separate websites that have more content than Richard Simmons has stretch marks?  I didn't think so.

Bottom Line

18 Gay Passport is definitely best as the sum of its parts.  If any of these sites existed on its own, they probably wouldn't pass mustard.  Lumped together and having access to all of them at once is definitely the novelty here, and 18 Gay Passport knows it, and capitalizes on it.
