The Manhub Review of Bareback 101

First Impression

I am an avid learner.  When I was getting my AA degree, I added an extra year so I could take more elective classes--in sociology, biology, psychology and physical education.  When I got my BS in biology, I added an extra year so I could take more elective classes--accounting, outdoor recreation, spanish and piano.  Right now I'm pursuing a master's in theatre.  I can see myself getting undergrad degrees in psychology, sociology, English, history and gender studies.  But let me tell you--the minute I find a school that actually offers "Bareback 101" as a course, well…that's the last degree I'll need to get.

Navigation

If Bareback101.com were actually an instructional porn site, that would be banoodles.  But that would also be socially irresponsible, so I guess I'll review it as the pornsite it is.  It's guest home page is pretty average, but not so much that I hate it.  It's blocky design is a welcome respite from the sites that have to have a pithy update or a cum splooge covering every naked inch.  The guest home page for Bareback 101, with it's yellow greens and soft blues, just gives you what you need to know about the site:  the guys are gonna fuck without a condom.  I see a couple of pictures that give me hope where other bareback websites fail:  a cum-covered asshole, boys taking a load in the mouth, and the like.  There's nothing more annoying than a "clean" BB site, where the actors are afraid of cum.

Logging in, and resemblance to the home page is gone.  Bareback 101 is a member of the Male Unit network, and all sites within this network have the exact same site design and layout once members log in.  This isn't necessarily a bad thing--if the site is devoted to bringing the hottest bareback sex it can, does it need all the accoutrements of any other website?  The answer, for me at least, is yes; part of the paysite experience is the ambience it creates with its site design.  Would you go to a restaurant that had the best food you've ever eaten if you had to sit on wooden crates and eat out of a paper towel resting on your lap?  No, because ambience is part of the equation. Then again, many people enjoy a basic network hub.  Regardless, Bareback 101 makes up for its lack of ambience with a relatively simple navigation that makes everything accessible and easy to find.  One thing to keep in mind is that the navigational bar at the top of the page is for the network in its entirety, whereas the navigational bar for Bareback 101 itself is located halfway down the page.

Content

Bareback 101 only offers video and DVD content, so don't look too hard trying to find pictures specific to this site.  The video content is original content solely for Bareback 101, whereas the DVD content is…well, DVDs of bareback porn.  Both the videos and DVDs can be streamed online or downloaded in hi- and lo-definition for Windows Media Player or for your mobile phone.  There's nothing terribly special with delivery of content.  They're competent, but not revolutionary.  There are photos, but they are generic and not catered to Bareback 101.

Curiously, Bareback 101 hasn't updated their site in a year or more.  Perhaps the Male Unit network struggles keeping all their balls in the air and Bareback 101 has fallen by the wayside. There are network updates almost every day, however - just nothing new on Bareback 101.

Guys And Sex

When it comes to the quality of the content, there's a bit of a conundrum.  The DVD content is, in my opinion, better than Bareback 101's original content.  Now, the original content is not bad at all.  Other than some fairly average looking actors and an overabundance of twinks, the sex is perfectly serviceable.  More than a few of the videos caught my attention, if you catch my drift.  It's just that in comparison, the DVD material is much hotter.  The models are a little more attractive, the sex is a little seedier (which, let's be honest, if you're doing bareback you're doing it to feel dirty) and the production quality is a little less haphazard.  In the DVD content is where you're more likely to find the guys whoa re more willing to get cum in them somehow.  The only real critique I have of the videos is that the actors tend to break the fourth wall a lot, and it kind of annoys me when porn actors show they're aware of the cameras.  To me, it just shows that they're not into it.

Value

Bonus content at Bareback 101 is where the real draw is.  Access to Bareback 101 is actually access to the entire Male Unit Network which includes such sites as 69 Gay Videos, Big Cocks and Jocks, Twink Clinic and Crotch Buffet, among 13 others.  Luckily, there's a lot to go through, so plenty to keep yourself occupied.

Bottom Line

Bareback 101 isn't a beginner's class per se.  With a proper site design and more recent updates, Bareback 101 could be one of those rare paysites that's a master class within it's genre.  Right now, it's worth paying to bone up on your education.
