The Manhub Review of Blake Mason

First Impression

Blake Mason bills itself as “amateur British men in action,” and that pretty much sums it up.  This site is similar to so other amateur gay sites—young men who are frequently introduced as straight but willing to wank for the camera. A good chunk of the stuff is solo, and even a lot of the man-on-man clips aren’t hardcore; some involve blowjobs and some just involve two guys jerking off for the camera. Where Blake Mason differs from most of these types of sites is in the quality of the clips—everything is high definition—and the professional feel of the production values.

Navigation

The site has a very formal, instructive look, almost newspaper-ish in fonts and layout. The homepage looks more like an instructional manual than a place to find cock. All the links are at the top, and they have the latest updates beneath. They give you an automatic summary of the man or men in the clips, the length of the video, the ratings, and the tags. You can Watch Now, View Pictures, or add to Favorites. You have to go the bottom of the page to get a link to all the videos, and they are extensive. Blake Mason also has a “latest news” bulletin to the right, as well as one of those fun polls. Once you click on Models or Videos the search engines allow you to go by recent or most popular. If a model suits your fancy, you can see all of his stuff. This is gay porn 101, and they handle it in a professional manner.

Content

The photos are fantastic and there’s a lot of them. The images are all high resolution. You can watch in a slideshow format and you can download everything into a zip file. The videos, as I said above, are HD quality. While the men might not know how to position their legs best to show off their assets, the camera work is smart and focused. The sound is fine—they do feature mini-interviews. All of the lighting is bright, yet it’s not washed-out. Once you find what you want, you can stream in several different speeds, and you can download in Windows and MP4, with several different speeds. Once you’re done watching your man, feel free to post a comment. The site updates a couple of times a week, and the videos average about 20 minutes long. All 680 videos are exclusive to BlakeMason.com.

Guys And Sex

The guys on the site are amateur-ish, as billed. Also, they’re pretty young and pretty smooth. They do throw in a few more jocks who, for the most part, seem to be in the solo clips. Some of the really beefy guys only jack off for the camera. The men are fairly clean-cut, and often uncut, with natural hair on the chest, legs, and elsewhere. There isn’t a huge variety in the type of guy, and not a huge variety in the sex. Some men look awkward—and spend way too much time stripping or trying to get hard before the good stuff happens. Some of the guys look like boyfriends, and go at it like pros. The advantage these amateurs have over some of the other guys spread across the Internet is that they are directed and filmed better.

Value

You’re getting quality videos and some great wallpaper when you join. Yes, they also have cam shows and a users forum. There’s a diary too, but the last entry I saw was for November 2011. There’s an After Hours section, which is more of the same, but told in a plot format with more hardcore content.  It’s great that the streaming and downloading options are so plentiful, and that the pictures are so good. This is one of those sites you join if the dudes light your fire. They’re presented in a solid, user-friendly format.

Overall Impression

Blake Mason seems to be capitalizing on the amateur boy craze, yet adding a professional touch to the videos and the site. The men aren’t particularly unique and some are not experts at fucking on screen. But they do fill a popular niche and their eagerness sometimes makes up for a lack of experience. If you get tired of those amateur sites where the videos look like they were shot in about five minutes, you’ll probably find this to be a much better alternative.

Bottom Line

Blake Mason is an amateur site featuring a professional quality that most amateur sites are lacking. The content is extensive and the videos are high definition. This is one of the best amateur porn sites I’ve seen in a long time.
