The Manhub Review of Men At Play

First Impression

I don’t know what I was expecting when I went onto MenAtPlay.com, but it wasn’t nearly as good as what I found. There’s a man in a mask right away, so now I’m imagining sexy parties, hot men in costumes and… well actually that’s it, but that’s enough for me. There’s a preview video on the home page which shows me that I’m going to be enjoying manly men in sexy suits. The preview video also makes awesome promises, like DRM-free viewing, exclusive content, and “tube style” viewing, but we don’t know what that looks like because those sites are bad. I was at a restaurant the other night with a menu that had a picture of every item so you could see what you were ordering – this site feels an awful lot like that. And I think that’s great.

Navigation

There’s kind of a lot happening on the home page, but we can chalk this up to the image-based organization of it all. Like the restaurant I mentioned, you can place your order from a picture instead of using words. The movies are organized into categories, such as hardcore and solo, but if you’re looking for something specific, you’re on your own. When you choose to look by models, there’s a search mechanism available, but I tried a few common searches (uncut, threesome, bukkake, and solo), and they all came up empty. You can choose to sort the models by age and dick size, but the other sort mechanisms aren’t about characteristics but site details such as number of views and date added.

Content

I have good news and bad news about the photos on MenAtPlay.com. I’ll deliver the good news first, because there’s more of it and I like it better. The photos are very nicely done. The lighting is great, the images are crystal clear, the poses are amazing and they’re interesting and engaging. You can save the photos individually as you view the slideshow, but you can’t download them all as a zip file. That’s the first piece of bad news; the second is that they don’t come in high res. I’d love to see these photos a lot closer, and with more detail, but I’ll have to use my imagination on this one. You can stream videos in three speeds from MenAtPlay.com, or you can download for either Quicktime or Windows Media Player. A lot of sites say they have movies but they appear to be more like videos. These truly look like movies. They are DVD quality with lighting that isn’t always the most conducive to watching, but works. The camerawork is steady and these were some of the clearest movies I’ve ever seen. Even more exciting is their "money shot" feature, which allows you to fast forward directly to the cumshot. Ingenius! The site recently moved to HD, and the difference shows here better than it does at other sites I’ve been to. There are more than 200 videos available and they seem to average from 20 to 30 minutes in length. All of the material you get at MenAtPlay.com is exclusive to the site and it’s updated every few days.  

Guys And Sex

These men at play are going to make you want to play. The action is so hot here I had to turn on the air conditioning in February. MenAtPlay.com features those manly men I love so much not only fucking the shit out of each other but worshiping the skin they’re in. Something interesting about this site is that it fully embraces the condom revolution and works with it to make wearing condoms sexy. Every video you watch begins with a reminder that while bareback is sexy, you won’t be seeing it here for safety purposes. And while some videos will skip over the fact that a condom is being put on, MenAtPlay.com considers suiting up part of the action. So you can consider this an educational film as well, because it shows you how to put on a condom without taking a break from the action. That’s the most interesting thing I saw here, but the movies – because they’re set up as movies and not scenes – will allow for different scenarios that you don’t see everywhere.

Value

I think the best thing you get from this site when you buy membership is a community of viewers. You have the opportunity to friend other members, send messages to each other, and put up a profile, photos and videos.  Unlike other sites, this one will show you who has commented where. If your friend comments on a movie he likes, you’ll see and know you should watch it, too. Then you can message him and ask why he didn’t forward the page to you, because that option is available as well. There are a handful of bonus sites you have access to with membership, though it appears you need to use IE in order to get full use of the bonus page. Also, there’s a chat room you can go to so that you can chat with old friends, make new friends and, well, whatever else you happen to want to do while you’re in there.

Overall Impression

I recommend this site. I recommend this wholeheartedly, actually. I can’t help but want to lend my (monetary) support to a site that so actively pushes not only wearing condoms but the movement to have more condoms used in porn. Plus, the community setting of this site will make the experience more fun for you, the member. On top of that you’ll be getting some of the best action on the internet. I’m going to be talking about this site for weeks, and I think after you go there, you will too.

Bottom Line

MenAtPlay.com sets a high standard for a gay porn site should look and be like. The men you see playing here are so hot, you’ll be wanting to jump in the sandbox with them.
