Review date: March 2017
The first thing you'll notice when you begin a tour of Maskurbate is the fresh young jocks of this Montreal-based site, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. They are a breathtaking group of masculine, muscular guys, many with big juicy cocks, in very high quality, well-produced videos. These 18- to 26-year-old French speaking men perform self-loving solos, steamy duos, and get dick-worshiped by webmaster Pascal. The big difference between this site and other sites is that some of these gorgeous amateur studs wear a mask, although this has been occurring less frequently in recent updates. Intrigued? Then read on.
The Maskurbate tour is definitely one of the more generous ones around. We counted over 160 explicit preview clips, which adds up to almost 60% of the content; for the rest there's a message that there's no preview clip available. As a prospective member you'll get an eyeful of this impressive site.
On the sign-up page there is a pre-checked cross-sell to another site. Also, be aware that the trial provides streaming access only.
The Maskurbate homepage starts you off with a large thumbnail image for the most recent episode. Below, under Latest Scenes is a grid of twenty-one thumbnails, each of which opens to a full length video. It's easy to get around the site by clicking on the Scenes, The Men, or the Photos across the top of the page. There is a limited search function and you can sort by date, popularity, or by a few categories.
The Men and the Action
Maskurbate originates in Montreal and lovingly presents masculine and muscular guys in mostly solo videos -- or being worshipped and blown by eager webmaster Pascal and others. A few of the videos open with an interview; these are in French, with English subtitles. There are a few hardcore scenes, and it is definitely time for more of them, matching up these studs.
The guys are carefully chosen for their perfect physiques. As anyone who has visited Montreal strip clubs knows, some French Canadians have been blessed with huge, uncut dicks -- along with friendly and quirky personalities. And it's funny about the masks: after a while you hardly notice them. Though the performances can be quite riveting, we'd like to see fewer solos, more hardcore, and fewer Pascal-aided scenes.
The videos look great, with close attention paid to clarity, light and sound. The camera catches the guys in many poses and moves around them to catch a variety of medium and close-up shots. The cumshots are always caught, and the videos are equipped with a catchy musical soundtrack.
There are 300 exclusive video episodes on Maskurbate. The average running time for a full-length session is 16 minutes. Over the past couple of years there has been a regular weekly update. And there are no download restrictions, so you can download and keep them as long as you like.
The videos will stream in-browser in MP4 format in two to four qualities, displaying at either 960x540 pixels (approximately 65%, filmed in high definition, after June, 2010) or 720x540 pixels (the remainder, filmed in standard definition)
Approximately 65% of the MP4 downloads are now available at 1920x1080p HD (6000 kbps). Older ones max out at 720x540 pixels, (2000 kpbs). There are several lower quality options.
Screens: There is a mobile version of the site included with your membership. The high definition MP4s look good on a TV-sized screen.
Image and Other Content
The site has been working steadily on adding image galleries and now has almost 300 image galleries featuring average sized images to complement the videos.
Maskurbate has taken a unique idea -- men in masks -- and done well with it. There are now more than 310 videos the site is updating regularly at once weekly, and many of the videos are available as HD downloads. Though quite a few of the guys don't have masks any more, this site has real personality and the models are guys you probably won't see anywhere else. The abundance of big, uncut dicks doesn't do any harm either!
