Manifest Men is one of the top sites for bodybuilders and hunks, pure and simple. You've got loads of great looking guys here, members videos to view, or on demand, a model index, galleries, interviews, previews, a live chat area with a performance schedule, and a blog. And at the heart of all this are the beefcakes, the muscle men and gym guys who defy description. There are reasonable prices for your memberships and viewing credits too.
There are over 300 videos at Manifest Men and you stream them online. There is no downloading here (actually there is, see later), and you will either have to take an unlimited membership or pay for certain amounts of credits in order to view them. The prices are not high though and you get good quality movies in return. And before you ask, yes you do get to see the guys naked and stroking. But the site isn't about porn, well it is, but not only about porn. The jerk off scenes come across as being erotic rather than pornographic and the leaning is more towards the beauty of the powerful male physique, than slutty hardcore. It's got class, that would sum it up nicely.
And the men have class too in fact Id not be surprised to learn that these were some of the top bodybuilders and competitors in their class. Check through the Videos list to see the interviews, behind the scenes footage, the work-outs, jerk-offs and poses and click one to get to the viewing page. If you haven't got enough credit you are told and you click over to add more. If you have though you click through to a good quality Flash stream. And some downloads are available, though these cost you 100 credits, which means that the cheapest movie you can buy will cost you $6.99 a throw, unless you are a full member.
In the Photo section here you've got 180 photo sets featuring the same godlike men. The photos are free for premium members, in that you don't need credits to view them unless you are a standard member, and they are digital and high resolution. Standard members get to see the first five from the set before you have to pay more to download the zip file, or browse on line.
You may think that your payments are stacking up here and you'd be right. But premium memberships only cost $29.95 for the first month and the payments recur at $24.95 a month until cancelled. But for that you get to see all the content and photos, the live shows and you also get discounts at the store, so it's only going to cost you more if you don't take this membership and start paying for everything a little bit at a time. And once you've seen one of these videos you're going to want to see more.
Talking about the live shows: when I was in the site there was a countdown to the next show, and this was in a day or so. There is an archive of previous recordings and again you need to either be a premium member or pay for credits to view what is in it. You've got an update schedule presented in its own page, and there looks to be something new here every couple of days, which is good news. So, all in all, you've got a decent stock of muscle-man content, great looking models, good quality everything and more of it coming to you regularly.
This site has some neat extra functions and features attached to it. You have the basics, the standard things, but you've got them set out is a very well designed and easy to use site. There is a favourites area for you to store you best hunks in, you've got the chance to rate the content and you can comment on it too. What's good about the way that works is that you can easily see what other members have written, and the comments boxes almost act like a chat room.
There is also a filter-thing going on in your main menu. Here you can organise the site content by vids or galleries according to their rates, dates and even how many times a guy has been added to a favourites area. You get great stats and info about the guys and even about how many times he has been viewed and rated and so on, the texts are all clear and easy to read, well written too, and these little things add up to show you that the site is well maintained and looked after. And that, in turn, means that you shouldn't have any concerns about updates or customer care, should you run into any problems. Which is actually pretty unlikely.
Navigation is easy, and the site has a very modern design which adds to the smooth looks and the smooth running of everything. Pages open quickly, the sample images are all large and good quality (as is everything else really) and the details about your membership, account, and how to get more credits is easy to read and the instructions are simple to follow. So, a well designed site with nice interactive options and a fab design.
The whole site shouts quality to you, from the men and their bodies (and some very impressive cocks) to the way the pages are designed and the way the technical things all work. Get your head around the membership options and you'll see that, if you're serious about your bodybuilders, then an ongoing premium membership, which is not expensive, is going to be the best for you. If you're only popping in from time to time then buy credits as and when. Either way you wont be disappointed.
