What’s in a name? XLoveGay starts off with a single letter that’s often used as shorthand for sex and follows up with a deeper connection that sometimes forms after a really good lay. Sex and love can be found among every demographic of human beings in the entire world, though, so they spell out their audience clearly in the tail end of the title. Despite having three different descriptors right in the domain name, it ain’t immediately clear what kind of smut they’re peddling, only who they’re peddling it to. Hell, almost any site I’ve reviewed here at MyGaySites could adopt the name and it wouldn’t feel out of place.
It might sound a little bit vague, but XLoveGay.com still manages to pull around 10,000 visitors every month. Some of those visitors swing by to swing their dicks around, while the rest of them come along to watch—and to cum along. Step right up and collect your prize if you guessed that this is a live webcam sex site aimed at and full of gay dudes. The prize in this case is dirty cam shows featuring sexy dudes, and well, you can collect even if you guessed wrong.

Putting the X Love Gay in XLoveGay
I’m not sure exactly what it is, but man, the XLoveGay logo sure looks gay. I mean, it’s right there in the title, but even if you couldn’t read and somehow missed all the naked guys on the front page, there’s something about the aesthetic that sets it apart from the usual straight webcam site. Maybe it’s the font or the color scheme, which looks like an old-time idea of what was once considered futuristic. That’s fitting, considering how long the site has been around. The domain was registered back in ’07, making them something of a dinosaur among the internet porn scene.
That longevity speaks a lot to their value, especially among masturbating homos. Incidentally, I saw a handful of them the moment I loaded up the front page. They’ve got a wall of webcam thumbnails out front like you expect on any cam site, jammed tightly together in a modern style that defies their ripe old age. One of the first things you’ll probably notice is that there’s a wide range of dudes slanging live dick on the site. To be fair, not all of the X Love Gay members are showing off their members in their front-page profile shots, but it’s almost always available.
As with Pornhub, Netflix or Amazon Prime, choice is one of the factors that makes a platform succeed. As I type this up, I’ve got my choice between Asian dudes, Latinos, black dudes and white dudes, plus a few mysterious, exotic dudes. They don’t have flag icons like some of the other platforms use to indicate location, so you’ll have to judge these books by their covers. Choose a chocolate buff dude, a vanilla bear, or a grandpa who’s some mix of sexy, old flavors.
As I scrolled through the twinks, the femboys, the trannies, the BDSM leather studs and brokeback cowboys, I suddenly noticed the OFFLINE icon in the corner of most of the thumbnails. I scrolled back up, looking for dudes who were actually online. The pickings, it seems, were slimmer than I thought. Visitors can expect their choice of dozens of dudes. It might be more than you’ll find smoking pole at the local rest area, but it ain’t the most hopping gay cam site I’ve ever seen.
But How About Some Freebies While You’re Here?
I usually like to poke around a cam site for a bit before signing up for an account. That always offers insight into what webcam fans can see without spending any money or sacrificing an email address to the spam gods. In the case of XLoveGay.com, though, I was really curious if signing in would open up a larger selection of dudes. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case; after signing up and logging in, I still had the same paltry handful of bros to choose from.
There was a silver lining, though: new users get a free VIP token just for validating their email address. That’ll let you unlock a piece of VIP content from a model’s profile page, which includes photos and videos. That might come in handy, especially since so many of the guys shown out front ain’t currently online.
I feel like pre-made content is something of a sideshow on any cam site, the main event being the actual cam shows. Still, I had a free token, so I checked out the video selection. Since they’d hyped the premium stuff, I was pleasantly surprised to find a nice selection of free pics and prerecorded gay videos. You’ve got to offer the fans something if they can’t get the live action they came for!
The free content is easy to find, too. Just select the Pictures or Videos section from the dropdown menu on the XLoveGay.com front page. The premium VIP material doesn’t seem to be collected in one central location, so you’ll have to find it on your favorite male camwhore’s X Love Gay profile page.
Can I See a Free Live Dick, Though?
As with pretty much any webcam sex site I’ve ever reviewed on both MyGaySites and ThePornDude, X Love Gay claims out on the front page that they’ve got FREE SEX CAMS. Given the number of performers who were live as I typed this up, I was skeptical. A straight cam site with such a pitiably small number of models would be full of bored women with their clothes on, but I still hoped I might see some legit free action. In my experience, male camwhores often have a stronger exhibitionist streak, sometimes eager to show off the goods even without a bunch of tipping viewers.
Models choose their own profile shots to appear on the front page of X Love Gay, but hover your mouse over one and you’ll get a live preview of what’s going on right now. Sure enough, I quickly found some dudes getting naked and kinky in the free public shows. A lot of guys were just adjusting their packages in tight underwear, but I found one guy jacking off, another showing off the Lovense vibrator in his butthole, and one freaky dude wearing nothing but an elaborately tied red rope.
Most of the dudes were clothed or wearing their underwear, but the numbers break down a lot better than you’d find on a straight cam site. Perhaps it’s true that dudes are just more inherently sexual than women, or maybe I just showed up at the perfect moment. Whatever the case, it's good news for the cheapskates and the bums in the audience. You can whack off to a real live guy even if you’re just camping out on the Starbucks wi-fi without buying anything. Hey, I’ve been there before, my dudes.
If you’ve got some change to throw around, the rates for private shows are pretty reasonable. Models set their own prices, with most offering private shows starting at around a buck or two a minute. There’s also a lower “Sneak Peek” rate, usually under a dollar to gawk at a private show for just a few seconds. Be careful, because those prices can add up fast if you’re thinking with your dick and not your brain. That’s how I ended up spending my grandma’s inheritance buzzing those Lovense vibrators. Bzzzz! Bzzzz!
Obviously, the weakest link in the XLoveGay.com formula is just the general lack of live models. That’s going to be a real disadvantage for everyone, including the platform, the models, and the end masturbator (you). I think the free VIP token is a great idea to get users on board, and I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if they started offering more of those as a promotional tool. As it stands, it’s hard to recommend this one above some of the more populated sites, well-designed as it may be. I guess it couldn’t hurt to go see who’s beating off on cam right now, though, could it?
