Live from the Stock Bar in Montreal, “mild-mannered men by day” become hot-to-trot “beautiful hunks striping nightly with gorgeous erections” as six live cams (including an exclusive backstage jerk-cam) capture the action and make the viewer part of the audience.
The front page looks pretty, but doesn’t advertise all of its trailers as well as it could — outside of the main trailer (running a few minutes) and the shorter strip-cam trailer, the 10 model trailers (each a minute long) are easy to pass over. Once inside, the main cam shows a live feed from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. ET (the quality is a little grainy, especially in full-screen mode), but otherwise plays the previous night’s performance (a countdown clock tells you when the next live show starts). It’s a nice way to get out without leaving your home.
The “JO Room” is supposed to follow the same format — but just showed up as a blank screen with a countdown until the next live show. The portfolio section has face shots of more than 50 strippers, with links to minute-long previews of their performances — but not clips of their performances, which will irritate some viewers (a separate section has links to some of their personal websites). The “DJ’s Choice” section catalogues various videos from the last four years, including strip shows, a few jackoffs, non-sexual behind-the-scenes clips and promos. But there aren’t any write-ups or models listed (nor any running times), so members might have to hunt and peck to find something they like (the design is also a tad confusing, with “play now” buttons placed somewhat confusingly). Lots of the videos are of much lower quality (the nature of true live cams), with lots of zooming (as well as music that drowns out the natural sounds).
Another section provides clips to mock newscasts, most of them from 2006 and 2007 (nothing is more current). The promos are hosted by a puppet Tiger (from Winnie the Pooh) and don’t offer much scintillating stuff. There’s a photo page, a section with video clips from three past “Stock Idol” contests (parodies of American Idol) and a hard-to-find link to a message board that includes some threads with technical questions from members.
