The Manhub Review of High Octane

First Impression

HighOctane.com, I ain’t mad at you. So what if the website title sounds a little like an energy drink, this is what I like to call a complete package site loaded with original content and exclusive material that is pretty well presented and well constructed. The site features mostly hot, natural muscle men and college aged jocks with a few twinks and tattooed older guys for variety, but there is a ton to look at and appreciate by all, no matter what your sexual taste. The homepage looks like a scorchingly hot fast food menu board with stunning guys and endless calendars of upcoming events making you want to strip down and get involved with the action. So I will.

Navigation

What seems a little cluttered at first is really just a way to organize all of the material that this site holds. There are live web shows, countless original videos, DVDs, action and solo photos and easy to use tabs and scroll bars allow you to search the site pretty effortlessly to find the guys and the material that you want to sink your teeth into. Yes, there are a lot of ads on the screen, but most of them are included in the site membership instead of just trying to get you to join another site, so they are more like schedules and special bonuses instead of true advertisements. You can conveniently view the latest and most popular videos, photos and models and a scroll bar at the top of the page lets you know what is coming up next and when the next live shows will take place. For a site that has so much to offer, this is pretty well organized and certainly makes the visit worthwhile.

Content

The site so far features about 120 exclusive video scenes and about 60 DVDs. There are also numerous archived shows and a new live show featuring some of the top guys in the porn business are added every week. Each scene comes with a hot narrative description making it easier to search through the material to find what you want to see.  In addition to the live shows, new DVDs are added about once a week so that you will never run out of quality material to watch. Most of the scenes are really well lit, well edited and showcase the hunky models perfectly. The site allows you to stream or download the full scene in a few sizes, and each one comes with a small photo gallery of beautifully shot action stills. The video quality is exceptional and although there is sometimes too much “porn” music laid over the scenes, you are still able to hear every grunt and lustful groan. The biggest let down is that the site isn’t fully Mac compatible so Mac users currently can only stream the scenes. Also, the live show are on a pretty low bandwidth, so in order to have good quality, they appear pretty small on the screen. Most of the models have their own photo gallery, and the photographer has really taken the time to come up with beautiful locations and does his best to make the models look really great. You can save the images to your computer or view then as a slideshow, which allows your hands the freedom to be working on other things, if you know what I mean.  

Guys And Sex

The men of HighOctane.com know how to have great sex on camera, and let’s face it, at the end of the day isn’t that what you most want out of an adult site. Most are buff European boys hungry for cock, but there are plenty of American men in all shapes and sizes as well, all competing to see who can deliver the hottest scene. These are not amateur men fumbling to find their way around a bed. These guys know what they want and the audience will have the cum-soaked pleasure of watching them achieve their goals. Many of the guys you won’t find other places and their fresh new faces and assess seem to be eagerly waiting to be filled. Some of the live scenes can be a little awkward, but still the audience will certainly find something to help them achieve self-satisfaction. This is definitely a site, which appreciates the beauty of regular guys’ guys with hot natural bodies and huge cocks. Often times sites dedicate and limit themselves to one type of boy or another, but at HighOctane.com all seem to be eagerly welcomed.

Value

The best part about this site is all of the extra things that come with it. Along with the spectacular material on HighOctane.com you get access to five other fully loaded sites. Plus, there are weekly scenes added from several other popular websites, an online store, and live chat rooms where you can get more personal with the boys. A year membership is only $149.00, which is a pretty exceptional deal given the amount of quality content you are privy too, or you can pay $39.95 dollars for a one month no renewal membership. Either way, you are getting a lot for your money, and with easy online technical help, all of your questions can be handled with efficiency. (Okay, I just went from porn mode to sounding like I was selling a vacuum cleaner.)

Overall Impression

I like this site a lot because there seems to be something for everyone. A little bit of lovemaking, a little bit of raunchiness, some live material, some quality DVDs and a shit load of extra content that will keep you satisfied for a long time. I love that the guys are just straight up hot hunks and don’t necessarily fall into a gay category, and since the site is easy to use, that is just another huge bonus. I will just say, however, that it’s 2010, and most gay guys with any standards work on Mac's (LOL), so you gotta update the site to fit the customers needs.

Bottom Line

HighOctane.com is a fully loaded, well-organized site that will please any lover of good porn. The guys are beautiful and fresh, and the sex is well delivered and expertly presented. There are live shows, photos, scenes, and full DVDs for the audience to enjoy, and with all of the extra material thrown in for good measure, this site is definitely one to check out.
