Pros and Cons
- many 1080p HD videos
- easy-to-browse interface
- favorites tracking
- four sites are no longer updating
- no advanced search engine
- tags aren't actually linked
I had a real lightbulb moment while thinking about this mega-site. You know how MGM Studios uses a roaring lion named Leo? I think Pride Studios should have an entire group of roaring beasts called a pride of lions. Granted, out in nature you'd have only one or two males with many lionesses, but in this case it's all male, all the way.
In fact what you're getting here is a mega-site with access to seven sites. The largest by far, Boyz Party, stopped updating back in 2013 and Circle Jerk Boys hasn't grown since 2014. Cock Virgins, which is the newest of all these sites, along with High Performance Men haven't updated since August 2015. Extra Big Dicks and Men Over 30 seem to be updating on a weekly basis, while Dylan Lucas is more like every two weeks.
All told I found 13 new videos in the last month scattered across different days of the week. There are 4,458 videos to check out right now and many of the newer ones are in Full HD. You can also peruse 3,721 photo sets and they can all be downloaded in Zip files, many of which include high-res images. They aren't dated so I can't say exactly how many have been added recently, but presumably they're added at the same time as the video they correspond to.
The interface seems to offer almost every feature you could want. You can save your favorites, post comments, rate the scenes and sort them, like by popularity, covering anywhere from the previous week to the all-time most popular. There are keywords labeling each scene, but they aren't actually hyperlinked. The links to the model index pages do work, however. The only thing missing is an advanced search engine.
It would come in handy, but in my case it's pretty easy to find the content I like the most. After all there's an entire site devoted to mature men (over 30 is pretty old in gay porn years) and large cocks. I should add that when you browse the individual sites, if you don't pay attention you'll land back on a page for the whole network.
I think when a site has as much content as this one, sometimes a great alternative to browsing by site or niche is to work your way through the model index. That way you can see all the scenes of the men who catch your eye regardless of which sites they've performed for or what types of scenes they've shot.
The content is exclusive on all the sites, which is great. Also, although most of the time the performers use condoms, there are a small number of bareback scenes, but I don't think many of them are very high in quality. And even though some of the older scenes aren't as impressive, most of the time you can expect well-made gay porn with pornstars or amateurs. In the end, there's no question that Pride Studios merits your proud patronage.
