[v]Impression(4)

I checked in and was taken straight to the live feed. It wasnít live though because when I moved off the page and then came back to it, it started again from the beginning; it was one of the siteís replays. But it had been a live show, recorded, and presented for me while I awaited the start of the next one. I instantly saw that I could login to the chat area and see if anyone else was watching at the same time and, if they were, I could text chat with them. First though I went to the home page to see what the video content was all about.

The video content here consists of live show recordings and there were a lot of them. 32 on the home page which serves as the first index page of 18. The content dates back to January 2007, and the content is dated so you can keep an eye on the uploads. There were 571 recordings to watch. These ran for around 40 to 60 minutes each and the quality was a bit low to be honest with you. These were Ďstandardí quality streams playing in WMV at 128 kbps, in a small screen, 320 x 240. The high resolution versions are contained in a separate area, which is easy to spot as it is in your man menu, and here the streams were playing at 538 kbps @ 640 x 480, which is higher than the standard ones but still not that high by todayís standards. However, full screen viewing was possible here and the quality was fine when I tried it.

There is no doubt that these sessions were recorded live, they have that fixed camera studio look about them, they have the models talking to the camera and answering questions and they have a live and relaxed feel to them. The models are mainly smooth and hung, in their twenties and they perform together in pairs, sometimes in threesomes, occasionally solo. You get the names of the models plus a short outline of the action on the index pages with each session, and a decent sample pic showing you the cast. The only downside about the videos is that I could not download them.
There are also links to galleries on these viewing pages, and there is an area in your menu for galleries as well. There were 571 of these with around 40 images each. The older galleries had images that were clear enough to view but which were rather small as were the ones in the more recent galleries. Navigating through the sets is easy though and there are links to the video that the stills were taken from. No zip files or slideshows were found though.

Next on my menu was the model index and this kicked off with a featured model who came along with a decent image and some stats. There were 208 guys listed in the index with their stats and a neat image showing a full body, nude, or face shot. Click a link and you go straight to a page of the modelís videos and then links take you off to the individual shows.

Navigation is easy enough here and I had no trouble moving around the site. There are a few things I would have liked to have seen though. There is a search engine but a list of categories or some other search tools would be good. There is a timer but this is simply showing the time in EST beneath the video streams; counting down in actual hours would help. The schedule is featured in your main index. Although the tour said daily shows, there are actually some live shows and then daily repeats. There were two actual live shows scheduled for the week I saw the site. There are other links to PPV sites and news sites, but I didnít actually find the promised 50 bonus sites. However, Show Guys does let you chat to other members as you watch so you can jack off with your new buddies 24/7.

[v]Conclusion(3.9)

Show Guys is a strange beast in that it has been around for many years and it has a lot of content but it is not known as one of the main players in the live show world. And yet it gives you at least two new shows per week and loads of replays and archives to view meanwhile. The quality varies but it is good enough, and this means it streams fine on a mid-range connection. The guys are hot, amateur, real couples and horny hung jocks and twinks, and the site works very smoothly. Sadly I didnít find the bonuses, but they may well be in there somewhere. A site to see for real, long and simple live shows and recordings.
