When I saw that Male Video Network
was next in my queue, it was a real blast from the past. I first visited it almost five years ago and I wasn't quite the seasoned reviewer as I am now. As much as I have changed, so has the design of this site and navigation is quite simple and straightforward. Nothing too fancy mind you, but at least they kept up with times and have not fallen too far behind.
MaleVideoNetwork has 552 videos with good-quality playback. You have a choice between DivX-formatted AVIs and streaming-only Flash. Most scenes are accessible from the video section's page of thumbnails divided under 28 categories. However, in some cases, like the "bareback my ass" scenes, you need to make sure to follow the link "click here for more... videos" or you won't actually see all the ones offered.
There are all kinds of scenes with diverse performers, including twinks, bears, mature daddies, Asians, Latinos and ebony studs. You'll see interracial and group sex, blindfolded anonymous sex, gay-for-pay, uniforms and leather action. Some categories have only one or two videos and many haven't been updated recently. However, you can expect about two or three new movies per week.
There are no photos of any kind, so you only have a single thumbnail and the title of a scene to decide which one to watch. Streaming them seems like an easier way to get an idea of what you'll see. Although, with some big names in the biz, like Will West and Michael Brandon, I knew right away that I'd enjoy their flicks and they did turn out to be some of my favorites in the end.
There are three bonus sites, but they have streaming-only vids and I think that some of their content already appears among this site's selection. Six video feeds are also listed, but only one of them actually works. Overall, Male Video Network has a small amount of exclusive content and the presentation is just not high enough in quality to excite me.
