The Manhub Review of My Husband Is Gay

First Impression

Okay, I won't lie.  I've been known to check out the gay dating sites (I won't bother linking to them here, it's not the purpose of the review).  It's also fun to check out stuff like Craigslist because…well, why not see what people put out there?  My absolute favorite ads that I find are the ones that read "Gf is out of town, want to mess around with a guy" or "MWM traveling for job, looking to host in my hotel room" or "Well the wife's away, the husband will play."  Because, really?  It's kind of hilarious.  I'm not judging by any means, it's just…funny.  And I always have to wonder if these guys are serious.  That is, are they married or otherwise opposite-sex coupled in real life?  Is there actually a missus they're cheating on, or is it just an act to make the hook-up more illicit (because, let's be honest, all of us gay men have thought about changing a straight man, why not add a stubborn wife to the mix?).  So when I receive an assignment to review MyHusbandIsGay.com, I'm rather looking forward to it.

Navigation

Visiting the site before logging in, I'm a little confused.  In all of the video previews, the guys look…well, they look barely old enough to fuck, let alone old enough to be married.  So I'm wondering how the premise of the site is going to be pulled off.  But I forebear, so I log in.  Upon doing so, I'm actually redirected to Phoenixxx.com, the network site that houses My Husband Is Gay.  Which, cool.  Redirecting to network sites generally means users get access to the rest of the sites the belong to the network site.  The site is kitted out in blacks and greasy, with red accents.  It's a little garish, especially with the addition of a cartoon phoenix at the top of the page.  The navigation is pretty simple; they're not redirecting the wheel here.  To get specifically to the videos for My Husband Is Gay, obviously you're going to go to the "Sites" link.

Content

Once you get to the point where you're only viewing content for My Husband Is Gay, you'll find that navigation is a little more complex, but in a way that's welcome.  Updates can be organized by date added, by category (video tags, like you might tag a blog update) or by site (but since we're focusing on My Husband Is Gay, we're going to ignore that for right now).  Some of the tags are a little odd, like why would you tag a video with "average dick"?  Regardless of tags, all videos can be streamed online in low, medium, high or 720p HD definition.  Which…wow.  That's a lot of choices and that's not a bad thing. Types of file download options are limited--Windows Media and MP4--but the definition quality is just as numerable.  Photo content isn't original per se--mostly screen caps, some posed shots from the videos--and can be viewed in an online slide show or downloaded in a zip file.

Guys And Sex

Now, back to my earlier comment about the guys not looking like husbands.  My Husband Is Gay is selling a concept that, to be honest, is a bit difficult to buy.  These guys don't look like husbands.  For that matter, these guys don't look straight, either.  I'm not saying they need to be straight, but if the premise is they have a wife, it should at least be plausible that they could pass for straight.  Additionally, the videos are inconsistent.  Currently, there are only about thirteen videos that have been updated.  Granted, My Husband Is Gay is a relatively new website; they've only been in production for about five months.  However, it's curious that the site executives didn't have a large quantity of videos ready when the website went live.  As a result, when the videos are about 50/50 as far as content quality goes, that leaves about seven so far that are actually good.

Value

Normally, the fact that logging into a site redirects one to a network site would be cause for joy and would definitely add to the value of a site.  However in this case, there are only two websites that belong to the Phoenixxx network site:  My Husband Is Gay and MyGayBoss.com.  That's it.  And again, the site is new so there's just not a lot of content.  Additionally, there are bonus videos and live chat but again, it's strange that there aren't more satellite sites. I assume more will develop in the future, but as of right now the network access is a little lackluster.

Bottom Line

MyHusbandIsGay has a lot of potential but it's struggling thus far.   Luckily, the site has the potential to make changes, considering it's still young and fresh.  Additionally, there's still the chance that the content will improve naturally as the site continues to grow.
