Flava Men review
Summary: What we have here is a gay porn magazine that has taken itself online, and it looks like the transition is fairly smooth. I have no complaints with the content quality, but I do have to whine a bit about the fact that there are sets strewn all over the place. They could use a bit of a layout revamp.
Solo, Amateur, Black, Latinos, Hardcore, Hunks-and-Muscle
gay porn amateurs, gay porn HD, gay porn magazine
Hottest black and Latino men
It's apparent right off the start that Flava Men is not your standard gay porn site - instead it's set up as a magazine, guaranteeing an experience that is unlike your day to day porn surfing. Now that's pretty enticing to me, and the fact that they're focusing on black and Latino men makes it even better.
The member's area has the same look and feel of the tour. In the middle you have sections such as Magazine, Calendars, Models, and Articles, and that's going to be your main navigation method. The sidebar navigation mostly gives you the random support and other miscellaneous links.
I'm always a fan of magazine type setups when it comes to certain pornsites, and it looks like Flava Men has managed to execute the idea quite well. I started off in the magazine section, which gives you 21 magazines ranging back to 2004.
One thing that makes or breaks porn magazine sites is the way that they are laid out when it comes to the virtual magazines. You can download the PDF to get everything all at once, or just go through section by section to enjoy all of the content. There are videos with the web version, as well as the articles formatted for the web.
The PDF version of the magazine looks great, and you'll find that the photo quality is great throughout. You are going to be missing out on some elements if you just stick with the web site of things, so you might want to take a gander at this.
The videos associated with each magazine have their own section of downloads and viewing options. There are three WMVs and two Quicktime versions, shown at 1280x720 and 5 mbps, 768x432 and 2 mbps, and 512x288 and 1 mbps. The quality is excellent, and I loved seeing these FlavaMen showing off their stuff. As expected, the videos also offer the gallery from the magazine. These show more pictures than can fit in the magazine, around 60 or so. You can see them at 500x750 and incredibly professional quality. The photo sets do have a slideshow option.
The next section up is the Calender section. Instead of just a calendar bonus, you get a guy with a video for every month of the year. They cover 2005 – 2010, so there's a good amount of sets here, 60 to be exact. Of course, if you want a calender with these sexy men on it, you just have to scroll down to the bottom of the page. These videos have the same resolution and format options as the magazine movies.
There's a consolidated model list in case you wanted to look through the movies and photos that way. There are 134 models shown, and they all have their own videos. If you just want to get to the content without going through the magazine, this is going to be the way to go about it. The model pages are identical to the video pages given on the magazines, with just a few small differences. Finally there's a section for the articles, for those of you that really do read Playboy for the articles. Another handy section gives you plenty of gay clubs throughout several countries.
Flava Men suffers from some serious organizational issues, but overall it's an interesting setup for a gay porn magazine online. The PDF layouts are great, and you'll love the super high HD quality that the videos offer. If the guys on the tour do it for you, the guys in the magazine certainly will.
