The Manhub Review of Stunning Studs

First Impression

Well, let’s see, the site is called Stunning Studs and they are stunning (check). Many of them look like they could easily charge for stud services (check). Stunning Studs is a nice relief from the gay-porn doldrums, even if you’ve seen a lot of these clips before. This is one of those sites that opens up the door to a bunch of different movies and studios, and many of them are quite hot. One little lie, however, right from the beginning: The teaser homepage shows clips of gay porn stars, one of them being ex-Colt star Dean Phoenix. When I checked into the site and did a search, there was no Dean to be found. They should remedy that mistake ASAP, or they might get a lot of horny Phoenix risers pissed off. The site offers pretty much every genre, and delivers (though, true to the title, it’s heavy on the studs).

Navigation

Stunning Studs is easy to use and navigate. There are no distracting ads all over the place, and all the links are clear and smart. They even tell you, for example, how many videos are on the site (2,518 when I last checked). That’s the kind of detail that most gay sites leave out, and it’s very helpful. You’re automatically shown the most recent clips, but can check out the Favorites, or go to the niche you’re interested in. The search features work extremely well, and you shouldn’t have any trouble finding your studio and your man. Also, when you watch one clip, they show you similar films that might interest you. They’re pretty much on the money when it comes to finding the next film to get you off. All of the bonus sites and extras are listed right on the left side, making it even easier to go to your desired location.

Content

The photo sets are extensive and give you a complete preview of what you may or may not want to download. They don’t show extra model sets, but what you get is great quality. You can watch in a slideshow or download. The videos themselves are, for the most part, quite good. Since you’re getting clips from several different studios, it’s hard to make a blanket statement about the production quality. I couldn’t go through all of the clips, but I didn’t find any that were horribly blurry or in any other way amateurish. There’s an abundance of foreign companies here, and they tend to like big hunky uncut hairless dudes. They also tend to go for more romantic fuck scenes; not as much “take it up the ass” as “kiss me while you fuck me, baby.”  You can download or stream in different speeds, and they offer Quicktime and iPod. The site has several updates daily, which is fantastic. If you’re big on porn already, be prepared to see clips you’ve found on other sites. The material is not exclusive to Stunning Studs.

Guys And Sex

You can find twinks and bears here, but they really do try and live up to their name. The European studios feature lots of Hungarian men and other quite wonderful specimens of male beauty. European porn also tends to have a lot more group scenes. I didn’t find a lot of inked-up guys or really hairy guys, nor did I see a lot of fetish. Many people will find this kind of sex vanilla, even when it’s four guys together. However, if you like a little romance with your cum shots, check these men out. Big lips reign, and boy do those lips like to kiss. Also, I noticed they had videos going back to 1995, and it’s always fun to check out the older stuff. While you might find some clone-ish men, I think that’s true of most sites. In this case the guys look like they were cloned because of their amazing beauty. The sex is great and hot and passionate, but in a different way than American clips. To each his own.

Value

I think sites that offer a ton of different videos and different studios are great, assuming the guys are what you’re looking for, and assuming you haven’t already seen half of these films elsewhere. Take the tour before deciding on whether it’s worth it. The biggest problem that Stunning Studs has is that a lot of the extras are heterosexual sites, ditto the related links, and even the hook-up site that’s attached. The links for the live cam shows offered up women I want to chat with. It’s a mistake that needs to be remedied before this site can be really fantastic. The stuff you do get is great, but don’t be fooled by a lot of useless extras.

Overall Impression

Stunning Studs is an impressive site that gives you hot films and clips from tons of different sites. I recommend it if you’re into foreign guys, especially, lots of uncut cock, shaved bodies, and steamy, romantic sex. You can also find daddies and twinks, but the site tries to live up it its name. Forget most of the extras, as they’re heterosexual sites.

Bottom Line

Stunning Studs is a site that gives you access to tons of studios’ films. The men are mostly European, mostly hot and muscular, and mostly gonna get you off. The site is very well run.
