Instead of your traditional monthly rate they've opted for a pay-per-minute system, allowing users to purchase credits at discount bulk rates. The tour looks very polished and professional, and the teaser images looked positively stunning. And as an added bonus, members currently recieve free minutes when they sign-up.

Despite the healthy amount of videos and split between gay and straight content, the AEBN.net members' area was is a breeze to navigate. Browsing the 88038 titles is made simple with nearly 120 categories to filter by. That might sound like a lot, but there's really not much overlap. It's a lovely and versatile assortment of niches and fetishes. All of the biggies are represented, as well as some of the more kinky ones: think watersports, trannies, grannies, and ultra-violent bondage. And if you're the nostalgic sort, you'll be happy that they've covered three decades — '70 through '90, which means you'll have plenty of retro ass to checkout. Personally, I was pleased to see they have a great selection of cuckold videos. But whatever your particular kink might be, chances are you'll find it here.
You can also browse by studio or performer. There are literally hundreds of studios to choose from, and even they can be browsed in several different ways. Most members would do well to checkout their list of top-rated studios. I masturbated to some great titles from Elegant Angel and Vivid Entertainment. There's also plenty of star power in the mix, with names like Sasha Grey and Lexi Belle. On a side note, the user-control panel was quite useful, allowing the user several ways to customize the site to their own personal preferences.
Every flick on the site can be viewed using your choice of the Windows Media or Silverlight formats. Not all movies are offered in high-definition, but the ones that are look killer. But many of the other files, though a far cry from HD, still possess higher than average level of play-back quality. Each video page includes a photo of the cover art, the directors name, as well as a cast-list, synopsis, running time, and categories list. And to make your choice even easier, they all come with a free preview, though I have to admit sometimes they don't pick the most telling of segments. On the bright side, they offer a wide range of bitrate options and, if you hover your mouse over them, it'll tell you what sort of connection it's best suited to All in all, a great little setup.
I was saddened to find a limited number of HD quality movies were available. As amazing as these looked, in the end they felt more like a tease than anything else. Once you factor in the low-end files, their overall play-back quality isn't quite up to par with some of their competitors. And with more and more sites everyday are going full-HD, so it's definitely something they should at least take into consideration. Though it seems all of the newer updates are coming in with that great HD quality, so perhaps it'll soon become a moot point. If not, though, they may find themselves falling by the wayside as more and more sites are going full-HD.
One thing that's sure to turn many off, however, is the DRM restrictions place don these videos. Sadly, this is the norm among VOD sites, so I can't fault them too much. If you want DRM free downloads you'll have to pay extra. Otherwise you're apt to find the license has expired and you can no longer jerk off to your favorite movie. And when you consider how much downloading some of these babies can put a dent in your pocket, it's a real drag knowing they'll someday expire, leaving you to your imagination. Even if you keep it up, there's always the minor annoyance of having to enter your login credentials before you can get off. To make matters worse, DRM-free downloads are only available for a limited number of films.
A minor negative would be that the content isn't 100% exclusive, which, quite frankly, isn't surprising isn't all that surprising for a VOD site. In their defense, they do have exclusive content. In fact, over half of the films are unique to the site. Personally I don't think this is much of an issue. I quite enjoyed the strange brew that came from such a massive studio list. To me, that's one of the better aspects of the site, and it'd be a real bitch to pull off while maintaining full exclusivity.
As far as video-on-demand sites go, AEBN.net is about as solid as it gets. Granted, their archive isn't as big as the major players and their content isn't 100% exclusive, but they've got a very flexible, user-friendly layout, and an awesome model and studio selection. They're also quite flexible in regards to how you view their films. If paying by the minute isn't your cup of tea, then you can rent or purchase it. What's more they've a very diverse film library, which encompasses over 100 kinks and fetishes. Factor in their large collection of gay flicks and there really is something for everyone. So, whether you're gay, straight, bi, or just enjoy the occasional company of a man in a dress, this site is worth giving a shot. But don't just take my word for it — sign-up and take advantage of those free minutes.
