Gay Star Network is a mega-site, but it's a bit different from others on the market in terms of browsing the content. You get access to 17 sites, but the emphasis isn't so much on visiting each one separately, because you can browse all the scenes easily from this site's homepage. There are sections for all the videos, all the pics and a model index too.
It has been just over two months since the last new video was added to GayStarNetwork. Still, the site already brings you 1,331 videos with good-quality playback. You can download them in MP4s that can also be streamed in an embedded Flash player. You can skip ahead or back at any point. When you hover over the video's progress bar below the player, a small screenshot displays that lets you preview the action at 20-second intervals.
You'll also find 207 sets of high-res pics to download in Zip files. Unfortunately, it's been nearly a year since the last photos were added. All the movies come with vid caps, which is handy, because the photo spreads don't necessarily correspond with the videos.
You will see lots of muscular hunks as well as some twinks in solo and hardcore action, including bareback and group sex. You can also browse by individual sites, which include Big Cocks And Jocks, Club Turk Melrose, Bareback 101, Bisex 101, Barely Twinks and Studs Over 40.
You have loads of navigational features, including saving your favorites, an advanced and sorting the content based on rating, number of comments, added most often to favorites, how long ago it was added and more. Clearly that means you can rate and comment on the scenes yourself. Every scene has a list of keyword tags and you can add your own if you want. There are links to each of the performers' page in the model index, where you'll find a few stats and each guy's shoots.
You can also browse by a list of 16 categories, including body types like bears, sex acts like deep throat and by location. In reality, all the scenes come from DVDs, so you can also browse based on their DVD packaging. Finally, there are 11 studios as yet another way to check out related footage.
It has been over 11 months since our last visit to this site. I mention that to give a bit of perspective as to how often this site is growing beyond already mentioning that more than two months have passed since the last new video. All the same, they've added over 30 videos in those 11 months, so sometimes they update more frequently.
You also get access to other networks, but before you get too excited I should tell you that one of them has tranny content and the other is dedicated to straight action. There are no gay bonuses. Overall, Gay Star Network is a good-quality site worth your money.
