Gay porn networks offer audiences diverse pornographies under a single offering. This article considers how specialist, online gay pornographic sites are made viable via networks, providing an overview of the 10 most popular gay porn networks currently in operation, and making connections between them via qualitative reading.

By recognizing the potential for alternative pornographies within these networks, yet not reifying gay porn networks to the production of solely non-mainstream offerings, the article invites a more nuanced assessment of the complexity of the online gay porn commercial environment.

The internet has provided much opportunity for the development of pornography. Yet, the internet has certainly diversified and democratized the commercial porn offering, in particular allowing for the proliferation of narrowcast fantasies, which embody especially the diversity now available in the online commercial pornographic space. Such diversification is of particular interest to me here.

Namely, I am interested in the specialist sites that have emerged in the online space to cater to fringe interests e. Recently, scholars e. Maina,admittedly in a heteroporn context have hinted at the decline of pornography directed to alternative tastes. The present study explores the potential viability of alternative pornographies in online commercial gay porn today. However, in my reading of the top 10 gay porn networks currently in operation, I also acknowledge that certain networks offer a more conventional, studio product Next Door Studios, Pride Studios.

By recognizing the potential for alternative pornographies, yet not reifying gay porn networks to the production of solely non-mainstream offerings, I invite a more nuanced assessment of the complexity of the online gay porn commercial environment.

A total of 50 sites are considered, which allows for an overview of the most successful networks and individual sites currently available. Sites for inclusion were selected based on visitor s, and are read using a qualitative text-based method. The study s for connections between these 50 sites, while also discussing the brand identity of the networks in which they reside. This is a relatively under-researched approach to digital pornography and one that is similar to the more structural approaches of influential early scholarship in the area, such as from Waugh The internet has facilitated the emergence of niche sites that for almost any sexual interest imaginable.

Individually, such sites have attracted scholarly inquiry. Some notable examples include college hazing site Haze Him hazehim. Such scholarship is crucial. Indeed, further, richer, stand-alone readings of these and other sites would be welcome.

But as these sites become increasingly commonplace, and for our purposes here, I believe a more encompassing consideration is now warranted. In fact, it seems necessary to contextualize these examples via the relationships between them, given that they belong to the same network the Big Daddy Networkand are marketed together as part of a single offering, despite catering to different niche interests and maintaining their own brand identities.

The wider context of which is important to any meaningful analysis of gay porn Waugh, : Such networks are important to consider as they point to the revenue streams and audience-attracting strategies that make a diverse digital porn offering viable. This is in line with recent calls [e. Yet not only does an understanding of networks explain viability. These networks also point to the potential for financial success, and a curious mainstream appeal that consists of a constellation of genre and sometimes-marginal porn sites and tastes housed within a single offering.

Men men. Men commands brand recognition see Brennan, cyet it is in fact a network of individual site offerings, housing a range of different sites that, even in its top five, cater to specialized tastes. Tastes that include: sex in suits The Gay Office [ gayoffice.

My Brennan, c recent study into the top 10 gay commercial sites currently in operation ranks Men second — behind Sean Cody seancody. These nine sites cater to niche tastes that include, in addition to the themes already listed: superhero porn parody Super Gay Hero [supergayhero. This example illustrates that when connected with other niche sites within a porn network — as a collective of niche tastes — these examples have the potential to rival even the largest, single-site heavyweights Sean Cody, Gay Hoopla [ gayhoopla.

And has been captured by the terms net- and altporn see Paasonen, b : — Further, the network model affords niche sites security, and a broader audience, by being packaged as part of a suite of specialized, non-mainstream offerings. To read these sites in all their individual and networked complexity I have opted for an integrated approach that attends both to the need for broad overview, and yet also employs qualitative analysis to understand the narrowcast fantasies each individual site caters to.

The quantitative component of this study is presented visually via Figures 1 and 2which are useful as a means of visual overview, while also encouraging connections between these sites and serving as an important reference point for me as textual analyst.

There is an emphasis in the present article on the viability of alternative pornographies within gay porn networks. Such acknowledgement allows for an inclusive treatment of the networks in my top As the first study of its kind, a key aim of mine is to provide an overview of the five most visited sites within a list of the top 10 networks.

The are presented across Figures 1 and 2which I utilize to make connections between these sites within and across the nominated networks.

It is important to disclose from the outset the various decisions that went into the included networks, as such decisions point to key definitional characteristics of gay porn networks and point to future research directions. I was concerned first with ensuring a large enough overview, yet also figures that were contained enough to stimulate qualitative reading. Therefore, a network needed to consist of five or more sites with only the top five entries in each included here.

This resulted in the exclusion of networks such as the Phoenixxx Network phoenixxx. Second, in order to understand the role of individual sites within a network, these sites needed to explicitly self-identify as part of a network i. Jonno Media, for instance, operates the sites Butch Dixon butchdixon. Compare this with the Gay Room Network gayroom.

Most relevant video : "study room"

A key difference being that Gay Room is unmistakably a growing network of smaller sites, while the sites of Jonno Media are individual properties that viewers would not necessarily recognize as connected except via affiliate benefits. While it is important to acknowledge these more specialized networks, and they are deserving of dedicated future study, consideration of them is generally outside the scope Gay mens xxx chat room study the present article and their inclusion would have confused some of the key arguments around the role of diverse niche offerings within a single, more generalized network.

Such a context makes this subject worthwhile for the cultural studies field more broadly. Castells, : It is important to set the parameters of what constitutes a gay porn network, as it is from such definition that the relationships within and across such networks can be understood. The analysis of these networks is in line with reading see Fiske and Hartley, and a cultural studies perspective. Such a perspective views the relationships between the sites included in terms of the culturally generated codes and conventions of the porn genres to which the niche and more general sites refer.

In this regard, I attend not only to the presentation of these popular networks and certain self-evident relationships between the sites that are contained within them, but also to the organization of often niche fantasies as part of an interconnected offering. To arrive at my top 10 networks, and the top five sites within each, I compiled a list of as many networks that met the foregoing criteria. I then ranked the sites within each network according to global web traffic correct as of 24 August These ranks were arrived at using internet analytics site Alexa, which ranks sites based on a combination of average daily visitors and views over a three-month period.

The are presented in Figures 1 and 2.

Figure 1 ranks the top 10 networks according to the most popular individual site in each network, Figure 2 pulls out some of the relevant data from Figure 1 and repackages it to prioritize the visualization of the performance of the 50 individual sites overall. A ranking of the top five sites within each network is also presented in columns labelled 1—5, which in the presentation of 50 individual gay porn sites, sorted within 10 networks. In line with a belief in the value of presenting these networks visually, the logo for each site is also included, which allows for a reading of the brand identity of the sites individually, as well as the nature of the network to which they belong.

We will take considerations of brand identity as our starting point. And central to this strategy, they believe, is the promotion of pornographic products in terms of authenticity, specialty, quality and innovation, many points of which help explain the branding strategies of gay porn networks as perhaps the best example of specialty products individual sites marketed under a banner of quality offerings offered as a suitemaking innovative networked use of the online environment Biasin and Zecca, : There are therefore useful visual observations to be made regarding the branding strategies of these networks and their sites.

This is represented most clearly by branded imagery i. The importance of such imagery is difficult to overstate. Falcon Studios is the perfect illustration of the connotations of the studio tradition. More notably, these ancillary products — with the exception of Jocks Studios jocksstudios.

Of course, uniformity works better in some cases Next Door, ranked one on my list 3 than others as with Pride, ranked sixth behind much less-known industry players, such as Mania Media. This lends credence to my view that when trading as 1 Gay Pass it was more identifiably a network, an association that in recent years has been gravitating towards a more studio-driven identity.

This makes further sense when we consider the top five sites within Next Door and Pride. Though admittedly this is a distinction that is perhaps changing. In addition to the uniform rebranding of its sites, Pride appears also to be moving away from themed content. A review of the site Dylan Lucas on Gay Demon gaydemon. As an extension to this point on the variation across the networks presented in Figure 1it is productive to consider next the themes across all 50 sites.

When considering the 50 sites together, worth noting in the first instance is variation in the of sites contained within each network. That the network with the smallest of sites ranks second Reality Dudes while that with the most ranks second last CJ XXX perhaps suggests a key variance in strategy: namely, a more focused branding strategy at the top, and a low-budget, more-utopian-in-its-pursuit-of-diversity strategy at the bottom. The latter — the utopian, diverse product — embodies more the niche nature of sites within a network.

Such variation in sites within a particular network is part of the reason why I chose to focus only on the top five sites in each one. The network at one Next Doortherefore, contains the most popular site Next Door Buddies of all 50 sites ed for in the study. It is worthwhile ranking the networks in this way — that is, according to the performance of a single site within each network — as it invites consideration of the impact of singular popularity on the performance of other high achievers within the same network.

To demonstrate the pulling power of a single site, we need only consider the theme of the sites ranked first in each network: Next Door Buddies nextdoorbuddies. Man Royale sites, the top performing sites of each network cover a diverse range of themes or tastes with little to no overlap. These themes are repeated in other sites that appear in Figures 1 and 2 : public sex with Out in Public; Black with Next Door Ebony nextdoorebony.

Lack of overlap in the leading sites of each network seems suggestive of an intention for a flagship site, which is supported by a suite of other sites covering other niche themes Gay mens xxx chat room study sold to consumers as part of a single network.
