While the specs are pretty good on the videos here, with videos coming in at 1080p and all, the quality can be a little up and down. They look pretty good overall, but they’re not going to compete with some of the best sites out there just yet.
The scenes vary a bit from one to the next, even on things like lighting. And there were a few artifacts at times, though they definitely don’t look bad or anything.
Things get slightly worse in terms of the photo quality from there. Again, they don’t look bad or anything, but they could definitely be upgraded to keep up with the times.
The biggest issue is
They are currently just shy of 2,400 scenes, which is a very healthy-sized collection! And with the sites and content being pretty similar to each other overall, I’m sure if you like some of the content, you’ll like most of it.
Updates are a little erratic here. Sometimes they come in after two days, and other times they come in after a week. They are coming in, at least, but with 8-13 sites in the network, I was hoping for more each week.
Navigation & User Interface
The site looks pretty plain overall, admittedly. However, the functionality is better than expected I’d say. It’s a little confusing with so many networks and groups of sites. But once you get in the right place, I really liked their ability to combine a bunch of tags together to really get a list of specific content figured out quickly.
Their speed was up and down, depending on what you were looking for. Browsing on

Price / Value
Even though the site isn’t terribly flashy, they do give you a lot for your money. The discounted price really saves the day here as $15 is an awesome join price. And they have a good amount of material, so it all adds up.
Gay Life Network presents a bit of a mixed bag at the end of the day. They do provide a decent amount of hardcore twink and jock content to check out, and the specs for the videos are where they need to be. Even better, it’s just $15 per month with our special discounted rate.
However, the site as a whole doesn’t quite feel like it’s at the top of its game, or even very modern. The scene quality varies, even with the good specs. The updates, while they do come, are a little slower than I’d hope for. And a few little glitches, like download speeds, also chipped away at the overall likeability.
So while it’s not a bust by any means, I wouldn’t call Gay Life Network a must-join option, either. I’d say to check out the tour and see if you like what you see. If you’re not super picky about things and don’t mind some inconsistencies, it could be worth a look, especially at that low price point.
