The Manhub Review of Alex Boys

First Impression

Alexboy.com's homepage is like walking into American Eagle and picking up their spring/summer catalogue.  It's like paging through a yearbook specifically designed for a drama series on the CW.  It's like...wholesome.  But, y'know, porn-y wholesome.  Alex Boys promises Cute Gay Teen Boy Sex, Nude Boy Pictures and Gay Twink Tube Videos (holy balls on a stick, that's a lot of adjectives).  The models on the homepage are eager and freshfaced, saying "Come on inside.  We don't bite.  We just want to have fun."  The site description asserts that these twinks are not from the "gay scene", whatever that means; I'm assuming that they're every day twinks that I could find on the side of the road.  *ahem*  

Navigation

In all honesty, the site design for Alex Boys is phenomenal.  Like I said, it's a wonderful pastiche of snapshots, captions and links that, when taken in all at once (dirty!) gives off a yearbook vibe.  The colors are fresh and vibrant, like they're gunning for the next Noxema representation.  From an aesthetic standpoint, this site knocks it out of the park, having found a cohesion of logistics and schematics that are visually pleasing, in the simplest terms possible.  However, that same site design detracts from the site navigation.  With random links found here and there, lists on the lower right of the screen, ads spontaneously placed wherever, it's a bit like a kid in a candy store:  where does the member go first?  You get so giddy that it's hard to find a place to start, or a place to go.

Content

As with many paysites, Alex Boys offers model bio pages, with a brief superlative of the model and links to the different galleries and movies in which the models appear.  Awesomely, the content can be search categorically within a drop down menu.  The videos and photos can be sorted by date, name and best rated.  Going a step further, members can separate the content into videos or photos before categorizing the content.  Awesomely, the photo sets can be downloaded, bulk-wise, in a zip file.  This is where Alex Boys excels. There are more than 500 videos and 30,000 photos to check out.

Guys And Sex

So, here's the deal:  Alex Boys rocks out the site design and when it comes to viewing options is pretty fantastic.  However, the quality of that content is occasionally laughable.  You know how you look back at old yearbooks and make fun of all the people with the funny haircuts, the people who blinked in their pictures and look half-busted, and the people who thought the the two-strap bib-overals over a baby doll dress was a good idea?  Sometimes the videos at Alex Boys are kind of like that.  The models don't always seem into it.  It feels like they're just going through the motions until they can get a paycheck to buy more crystal meth (drugs are bad kids, mmkay?).  Occasionally, the videos are hot and when they are, it's on fire.  But now that the powers that be have nailed down the site design, they can work on the screening interviews for their models a little bit more.

Value

Members with access to Alex Boys also get access to BoyLantis.com and Freddy18.com, resulting in three websites that are twink heavy.  This is great if you love twinks.  If you don't, then...well, why are you here?  Ultimately, this is about all the extras that Alex Boys has to offer.

Bottom Line

Alex Boys is visually appealing, but the content isn't always on target.  It's like if Michelangelo's David were completely hollow inside:  at some point, it would just crumble away.
