Review date: August 2023
Next Door Studios is a large gay porn network, with access to over over 5300 exclusive, high quality videos you can stream or download. In 2023 Next Door content was merged with the ASGmax Network, giving members access to over 12,000 videos in total. Next Door models are top grade, ranging from untested young amateurs to skilled favorite studs. The network updates about three times a week. At $14.95 for the first month, and with masses of HD videos and all the extra content in ASGMax, this is a very popular buy. Unfortunately the tour tells you almost nothing about what's inside.
The tour for Next Door Studios has been severely cut down so that all you see is a home page with all links going to the sign-up page. This is a disservice to potential members.
When you go to sign-up, there is a pre-checked trial offer to another site, which will rebill at the full price if not cancelled.
Next Door Studios content is totally integrated into ASGmax. Use the nested menus along the left side of the page to select "Videos," "Models," "Photos," or "Channels." To get to Next Door content, Select "Channels" and then "Next Door Studios."
The Men and the Action
Next Door Studios is stocked with a choice crew of handsome, masculine, mostly 19-30 year-old studs. There are some tats and piercings, but mostly these guys are straight-up young, sexy and muscular, without being too heavily muscled or kinky.
The solo videos are mostly found on Next Door Male and serve as an introduction to the guy, spoken in his own words. He talks to the camera and tells us about his hobbies and fantasies, then strips and jerks so we can see his talents.
Most of the other sites are hardcore, where you'll find duo and group videos with the usual range of guy-on-guy kissing, sucking, fondling and fucking. Next Door Buddies, Next Door Originals, Next Door Homemade, and Next Door Raw. Some of the sites have a specific focus, and a few relate to specific stars. There's also some bisexual content in Next Door Hookups. You can get more info on the content of these sites by reading our reviews for them (click the links in the content breakdown, below.
The Next Door videos are very good to excellent quality, according to how recently the video was added to a site. Over 80% are true high-definition 1080p HD, and newer videos are being offered in full 4K. These sessions are among the best of any gay porn site, with excellent light, clear sound, and a good range of camera angles, close-up and medium shots, and model poses. The all-important cumshots are all there and the gorgeous rich settings don't hurt either.
There are almost 5300 videos in the Next Door suite. The movies average 15 minutes in length,

Image and Other Content
There are video capture image galleries for most videos on the Next Door sites, averaging 70 pictures each. There are also digital image galleries that you can find under "The Guys". Especially in the digital image galleries, the lighting and poses is definitely above average. Some of the galleries are topped up at the end by a couple of video captures of lesser quality for the cumshots, and some of the galleries consist entirely of video captures.
The exclusive content at the Next Door Studios sites will appeal to those who like hot, regular guys aged 19-30. By sticking to this particular model type, grooming their hottest stars, and offering so much porn-for-dollar, Next Door Studios serves up quantity, quality and value. And now with over 12,000+ total videos in the ASGMax network, that value is much greater.
