The Manhub Review of Boys Casting

First Impression

I love paysites like BoysCasting.com.  I can't really explain why.  The guy who runs the site ("Bruce" which, could that be any more perfect?) opens with a note, letting members know that this is where hot guys who want to get into porn can get their first screen test. There's something kind of…sketch about it, but in a good way.  It kinda seems like the guys are being taken advantage of, but in a way where they want it to happen.  And me, being a big nelly sub, really gets off on that.

Navigation

The site design kind of looks like a casting call page one might find in the back of a magazine.  An acting magazine, not a dirty magazine.  It really lends itself to the idea of this being a screen test site.  The colors are kind of mundane--muted browns and greens--but don't really detract from anything.  Logging in, the design fades away.  Boys Casting is a part of the Male Unit Network and logging in to Boys Casting actually logs members in to the network hub page for Boys Casting.  The site design becomes something more akin to YouTube.  For many of the network's sites I welcome this change, but I liked the vibe that the site design on the guest page gave.  At least the site is easily navigable within its familiarity.

Additionally, the video content has a wide range in which it can be sorted.  Besides being able to switch back and forth between thumbnail view and full description view, the videos can also be sorted into one of 8 different categories including anal, masturbation, and bareback.  There's also "costume" which makes me laugh more than it probably should.  From there, there videos can be sorted by how often it's been viewed, how often it's been favorites, how high it's been rated, or how recently it's been updated.  It's a little touch that sets Boys Casting apart from the rest.

Content

However, when trying to watch videos, the options are a bit stifled.  You've got three  ways to view:  stream it online, download it in Quicktime, or download it for a mobile device.  THe download options also come in hi or lo definition.  It's disappointing because the sorting options are so  multitudinous.  However, the site kind of makes up for it by offering a way in which viewers can jump to whatever scene they want while streaming videos online.  When viewing the each videos page, there are thumbnail views of different scenes within a movie.  That allows viewers to go right to the cumshot if that's all they want to see.  It doesn't entirely make up for the limited viewing options, but it makes it a bit better.  There are 42 photo galleries, but the viewing and downloading options are limited there, too.  Members either need to view them one at a time or download them one at a time; no bulk downloading or slide show options.

Guys And Sex

I love the site content.  There's a certain skeevy factor to it that just makes it really hot.  As far as conventional attractiveness goes, it's hit or miss.  The guys aren't always hot, at least not in a socially normative manner.  However, the vibe of the content heightens that attraction level.  It shouldn't be, but somehow the sleazy, "backdoor casting call" is appealing.  The pictures aren't just screen caps, they're original content.  The idea is the same, but somehow the vibe the ciders has doesn't carry over.  I'm not saying you shouldn't check the pictures out, but I am saying the videos are hotter.

Value

Bonus value at Boys Casting is where it's at.  Like I mentioned, Boys Casting beings to the Male Unit Network.  As such, members get full access to everything that falls under the Male Unit reach.  That includes a model link that has full profiles for every model in every video in every site of the Gay Star Network.  And when I say "every site", i mean every site.  There are 17 sites total (Boys Casting included) and some of them are really hot:  He's So Big, Big Cocks and Jocks, and Studs Over 40.  Of course, there's so much content that it'll take you awhile to get through it all.

Bottom Line

Whether or not it means to, Boys Casting hits that perfect mix of sex and skeeze.  WIth everything it has to offer, buying a membership will make you feel like you're taking advantage of the site.
