Surprising as it might seem, there’s something almost wholesome about the sweat pigs of TitanMen. Founded in the mid-’90s to highlight safer sex and natural surroundings, Titan’s aesthetic is decidedly raunchy and rough—and yet, everyone just seems to be having a good time. But considering the price of entry, is a TitanMen membership worth it? We broke it all down.
Rather than the gay-for-pay eye rolls and chemically enhanced “if we must” performances one might find elsewhere, TitanMen’s talent seems to genuinely enjoy their armpit-licking, spit-roasting, nipple-twisting jobs.
TitanMen’s various membership tiers are entirely reasonable: Like most companies in the space, you can sign up for a month-to-month fee of $24.95, or you can buy several months at a time and amortize that cost over time. A three-month subscription is $59.95, which works out to $19.98 a month. A year’s worth of porn comes out at $9.99 a month for an annual fee of $119.88.
As usual, watch out for tricky add-ons. The signup screen automatically ticks a box to register for other services. The trial period on those add-ons is unusually short; if you miss the auto-checked signup to add a titan-mrman.com subscription, you only have one day before it starts auto-renewing at $29.87 per month.
Cancellation is handled by filling out a form, which is easy enough.
TitanMen VOD: Membership benefits
Once the site lets you in, you’ll find a huge volume of high-quality porn. TitanMen has exclusive models like Dallas Steele, Dean Flynn, Jay Bentley, and the adorably nerdy Lorenzo Flexx. The site also features revered directors like the talented Jasun Mark, longtime auteur Joe Gage, and the curious Francois Sagat.
TitanMen adds three new hardcore scenes per week, which isn’t a ton. But the already-extensive back catalog will probably feed whatever your appetite may crave. That catalog is considerable: There are over 2,000 videos, 200 feature films, 3,000 scenes, and 25,000 photos.
Plenty of other porn sites boast that much content, but TitanMen’s is actually good. Produced with high-quality video and sound, and shot by professional directors who know where to put a camera and how to time a cut, TitanMen gay porn videos are a pleasure to watch.
On top of that, your membership gets you 20 scene downloads per calendar month. Again, that’s not a ton, but if you opt for the yearlong subscription, that’s up to 240 scenes that you can add to your local collection, DRM-free. Titan also offers members a 25% discount on DVDs, Blu-rays, and toys in the online store, which is a surprisingly good deal.
You can even feel good about the politics of the site. Titan was the first mainstream company to include a trans man in an all-male adult film, a level of inclusion that the industry still sorely lacks.
The TitanMen feel
TitanMen has a distinct vibe to which it is unfailingly faithful. The models are big guys with muscle, hair, and aggressive attitudes. Storylines feature confident, assertive men who aren’t afraid to get dirty, and their films are a seemingly endless catalog of the various ways in which one can perform intense masculinity.
Unsurprisingly, the site has taken home a slew of awards, from Gay Studio of the Year at the XBIZ awards to Best Fetish Movie at the Grabbys.
For something a little more clean-cut, you can also check out the TitanMen Fresh line of products. Those feature younger men—with slimmer builds and less body hair—in more clean-cut scenarios. Those models also tend to be whiter than the main Titan talent.
It should be noted that overall, there is not much ethnic diversity to be found. As with many gay porn sites, the models are generally white. But it’s a relief to see that Titan’s categories do not fetishize race; there’s no separate section for “Asian” or “Latino,” a categorization scheme that injects an uncomfortable level of racism into other sites. While TitanMen does feature “Interracial” and “Men of Color” categories, men of various ethnicities are featured throughout the scenes, rather than being segregated by heritage.
On that topic, TitanMen has a good range of categories. You can browse “Big Dicks,” “Construction,” or “Daddies.” The “Older/Younger” category is wonderfully tender. And it’s nice to see the exploration of kinks like “Latex” and “Uniforms.”
This is perhaps a nerdy note, but the site also does a good job with metadata. It’s frustrating to search for older titles, or a more obscure model, only to be frustrated by incomplete or inaccurate tagging. But TitanMen has done a meticulous job of making sure the details of each title are correct. It’s a small thing—but much appreciated.
TitanMen review: Should you buy a membership?
Aside from some hiccups with the payment process—always a possibility, given how irritatingly skittish most processors are with adult content—it’s hard to find a quibble with TitanMen. Its vibe may not be for you (there’s no bisexual content, for example), but if you want muscle and strength and testosterone-fueled growling, its content is gorgeous, the rates are reasonable, and the tech is as reliable as you could want.
