Show Guys sounds as if you might just be in for fellows dancing in a chorus line wearing bejeweled swimsuits and giant feather headdresses. However, despite sounding like the male version of the female Vegas performers, the site is decidedly hardcore for the most part. The "show" part of the name is because it combines recorded feeds with live feeds and presents them both in an unlimited fashion for a single monthly fee.
However, since nothing is downloadable, there is some limitation to your access. There are currently about 595 videos to choose from in a huge archive of recorded live shows and a new one gets posted each week. However, we're not talking your usually flirty solo guy in front of a webcam on his own. Rather, there is hardcore sucking, rimming, fucking and facials, not to mention more than a few threesomes. You'll find only vid caps in the galleries section.
The guys performing aren't nervous amateurs, but mostly strapping jocks with pornstar good looks (or actual pornstars like Ian Jay, Dallas Reeves and Jesse James), big muscles and rock-hard cocks. However, there's just one catch: The full-length clips offer average-quality playback at best and the same is true of the live shows. That said, at least the sets they use are well-lit and the camerawork isn't merely one camera sitting on a tripod stuck in the corner of the room.
The interface is very basic, so when it comes to the chat, it's just a simple single-room setup. You can add things like emoticons to your messages and change the appearance of the text. You can always enter the chat room even when there isn't a live performance, but it will simply have other members in it. Obviously, depending on the time of day, you might be on your own in there.
When it comes to the recorded content, you can't save your favorites, leave comments or rate any of the scenes. There is a search engine, but it's not an advanced one, and there aren't keyword tags labeling anything. There's enough porn here that some of these features would be useful. For example, maybe you want to isolate all the bareback scenes or check out some interracial action.
There is a fairly detailed model index listing more than 200 performers. They give stats, including height, weight and hair/eye color. They also cover the most important info, so you'll find out if a stud is a Top, bottom or versatile, as well as the length and width of his cock. Many of the men also have a bio, fleshing out even more about their experience and what they like in bed.
There aren't any extras. You can buy the videos or watch them on a separate pay-per-view site, which I presume would offer you better-looking playback, but then why would you pay for unlimited access to this site? Show Guys is an excellent concept and I love live sex shows, but the quality of the streams isn't impressive enough to fully enjoy the live or recorded experience.
