My Opinion About KeithManheim
Anyone searching for a fountain of youth where beautiful Adonis-looking guys suckle each others' tongues, gobble back each others' rock-hard candy and play hide the monkey in each others tight asses, is likely to find the Emerald City at the end of my Keith Manheim review.
For those who don't know, Keith Manheim is the name of a production studio that releases tons of gay titles like "Street Boys in your Face" and "Plant Your Seed" and as a site member you receive free access to all the DVDs the moment that they are released to stores. This isn't the only draw, though. There are 336 photo gallery bonuses, six gay reality porn feeds, 24 categories of video streams and another four mega feed sites that are all geared to guys who do guys. While I may not be a gay guy, I always appreciate a side that offers bonuses focussing on your interests and in this way you really can't fail with the extras here.
All the models are exclusive, the featured content is original and there are daily updates, which is far more than most of the gay sites I've reviewed lately can claim. While the majority of your daily porn dose consists of photos, there's still plenty of video action. Movies made specifically for this site are easily accessible in the page-top menu and there are 34 to date. The majority of videos are 20-minutes long, although some of the lengthier episodes are divided into 10-minute clips. When you choose a film, it automatically loads in an embedded Windows Media player and streams at755Kbps in a 384x216 sized screen. The streams are quick to buffer and play. However, you can also download 320x240 iPod/QuickTime videos to play wherever and whenever you feel horny. On the one hand, I was surprised by the clarity, but then on the other hand, these are films produced by a studio, so they should be sharp. They aren't highly polished productions, but rather give off the atmosphere of first time and amateur experiences. The majority of guys are twinks, fresh looking and energetic. There aren't phony soundtracks so you get the pleasure of the action as it paces along. There's a softness to the sex, although I'd suggest it's just a bit more real than the average gay site and what I mean is that none of the guys appear to be acting and you don't hear them yelling out a lot of hardcore dialogue lines. Experiencing these films is more like being a voyeur in the same dorm room as a couple of freshmen explore each other and tenderly get off. Of course, there are some titles with an element of BDSM, but I wouldn't say that it's over-the-top rough and nasty.
There are 95 original picture sets. The majority are shot indoors although there are some outdoor locations. There are roughly 125 shots in each of the sets. You can rate them, but there isn't a slideshow or zip download option. The images are crisp 1024x681 shots and similar to the movies there's a high element of the candid. In fact, a lot of the photos look as if they're snapshots. Lighting isn't a big concern and while the models do pose, I felt there was a naturalness that flowed through the sets rather than a staged feeling when shots of the sex were taken.
I think there are a couple of things that the site should add. First, I'd love to see a keyword or model search option; and second, when it comes to the models, I'd love to be given some names, ages and biographical details. Adding bios would definitely give the site a much needed personal edge.
Despite the hardcore nature of the action, I was left feeling that Keith Manheim was treading on virgin ground and what I mean is that the style was amateur with a soft romantic-like feeling that flowed through the films as opposed to hard-hitting and raw gonzo-styles or staged and scripted glamour productions. The style didn't make the films any less hot, but rather it added to the realness of a couple of inexperienced twinks having sex. Fans of this style and of youthful pretty boys will love all the original Keith Manheim content and when you're in the mood for something rougher then there are plenty of bonuses to keep your jack off sessions teeming with variety.
