Supermen.com is a pretty cam site for gay men. The site was released in May this year (2013) to critical acclaim from the webcam community that almost unanimously agreed on the high quality. It seemed that finally there was a proper contender for a webcam site aimed at gay men.
The website & Content
When you first visit Supermen.com you will notice that it looks a bit different from a lot of the carbon copy type sites that you see these days. The logo and overall design looks to have (naturally) been styled on Superman (the movie).
Below the logo are 5 tabs, each tab takes you to a different area of the website:
- What’s New – This is the default tab and offers information from the different areas of the site. There will be comments from the editor of the week, an interview with a random chat host, places to visit, latest blog posts and erotic videos to watch.
- Webcam Hosts – This tab takes you to the main ‘fruit’ of the site. We will discuss this section in more detail shortly.
- Magazine – This is effectively a blog for gay men. Topics include “Places to find your next Boyfriend” and “The Top 10 Gayest Songs Ever!” among others. It remains to be seen how successful the magazine will be but it’s an interesting diversion and it’s nice to see a cam site offer things like this.
- Exclusive Videos – If you just want to jerk off to a high quality gay porn video. Supermen.com offers videos that you won’t find anywhere else. For the most part these are excellent quality. As a guest you will not be able to watch the videos and registration will be necessary. Credits cost 3 credits per video and the video is available for an hour after you start watching (so make sure your partner or mom isn’t about to walk in!).
- Local Spots – Another nice feature that I haven’t seen on a cam site before. Local spots offers exciting places around the world for a guy to hand out with his partner. Venues available include Twist, Vertigo, G.A.Y, Club 69 and Le Queen among others. Each local spot includes address, opening times, map and user reviews. As Supermen.com is so new there are not many reviews but as with the magazine it’s a nice idea and good to see on a cam site.
Under the webcam hosts tab you will notice that the layout looks a lot more familiar and more like your regular cam site. At the time of review there were over 50 gay men online with 14 of them being teen and 36 shaved. I visited the site at various times of the day and noticed that the number of hosts rose to over 100 in the evenings.
Using the drop down boxes you can filter by guy type (Teen, Bear, Shaved etc) and by features (High Quality, Audio, Happy Hour etc). If you use the advanced search you can also narrow it down to 27 different languages!
Each profile picture contains useful information to help you decide if you want to enter a boys room.
Profiles are either displayed as “Private Chat” or “Free” Chat”. Private chat means that the host is already occupied talking to another registered member. Free chat means that the host is available to both guests and registered members. This is the perfect opportunity to get to know him better.
If you place your cursor over the chat host image (profile pic) of a host in ‘free chat’ will provide you with a few second glimpse into their room. This is a great idea and it enables you to peek into multiple chat rooms quickly without needing to open a new page every time.
Other useful info here include the guys age, current rating and languages spoken. From here you can also view the hosts bio and access photos if available. You can also add the model to your favorites (if you are registered and signed in). The Bio pages are an obligatory addition on any webcam site and things are not much different here, there is the usual about me blurb with turn-ons and turn offs. Basic info about the host covering age, body type, eye color, penis size and whether they smoke.
If the member has been broadcasting a while usually they will have been reviewed, using a star rating system similar to this site. Of course the site is still very young so the number of reviews are still quiet low.
Tell me what the gay cams are like
Of course, if you are reading a review of an adult cam site called Supermen.com about a chat site for gay men I think it’s fair to say you are going to know what the adult chat is like.
Clicking one of the profile pictures of the sexiest stud you can find will take you through to his live chat room. From here you will be able to watch live guys on webcam, usually performing from their bedrooms or wherever. Don’t be surprised to see guys stroking their long hard cocks, most of them will be half naked as well which is sort of expected. You won’t see full nudity or sex acts unless you take them private, this is restricted to members only.
I spent some time browsing the various cams and was surprised by the high quality, many were in HD and most had audio. The guys I spoke to via chat were mostly a friendly lot who seemed keen to please and got off on being watched.
You can chat as long as you like and watch the live webcams even as a guest however it’s worth registering to avoid the annoying popup every few minutes requesting you to register on the site. If you want to take any of the guys private which surely is a must or you just want to send a tip you are going to need to register.
How much is Private Chat?
The guys at Supermen.com can set their own prices for private shows. Prices vary between 0.98 – 5.99 credits per minute with the average being around 2.99 per minute. If you are lucky and get the opportunity to participate during happy hour, prices can go really really low (0.20 credits per minute).
When you decide to go private with a guy you will be offered the option of Cam2Cam. This enables the host watch you as well. It’s a nice feature that really does enhance the user experience and on Supermen.com it’s free to use.
How to Register?
Registering at Supermen.com takes just a few seconds, choose a username and password and then enter your email and your account will be automatically be created. During the registration process you can use the opportunity to add credits to your account. Taking advantage of this now is a good idea because you will receive 10 free credits. Each credit if the equivalent of approx £1.00 / $1.00 / €1.00
Credits can be purchased in the following amounts:
- 25 credits for £25
- 50 credits for £50
- 75 credits for £75
- 100 credits for £100
Payment is processed by CCBill and is a one time charge.
Despite Supermen.com being a relatively new site it works like a dream and it has some very nice features.
I like the idea of an integrated blog to make the experience more community orientated. The webcams that I saw all looked good and had enough features to keep me entertained. The available guys were friendly and seemed to be enjoying themselves. Prices are about the norm for an adult cam site so their should be no unwelcome surprises from the anonymous billing.
