Manhunt Launches Sister Site, OnTheHunt

BOSTON - OLB Media LLC has launched OnTheHunt, a new website that features Manhunt members hooking up as they are filmed by adult-industry stars.

OLB Media is a sister company to Online-Buddies Inc., the operators of gay dating and community site Manhunt.

"We are excited to launch a new type of porn site that is markedly different than anything available today," said Manhunt chief executive officer Adam Segel. "We are offering content that features real men, the kind you see on Manhunt every day. And we have already received thousands of applications."

Gary Blumenthal will serve as OnTheHunt's webmaster.

"Gary brings more than 10 years of experience in adult website marketing and pay-site management, and he will be instrumental in helping us achieve our vision of offering hot, unique reality content unlike any other on the Web," Segel said.

"We don't coach the guys, rehearse or primp them," Blumenthal explained. "These are real amateur hook-ups filmed as they happen. We want to capture the entire hook-up as they are experiencing it, from beginning to end."

The hunt for amateurs began earlier this year with a Manhunt recruitment campaign. Manhunt invited selected members to appear in the videos, offering them the chance to have a gay performer visit their home to film the sexual encounter.

"We heard from all sizes, shapes and colors, as well as men into every kind of fetish scene," Blumenthal said. "Jocks, twinks, bears, pigs, leather guys, intergenerational couples, interracial couples, tattooed boys, muscle men, daddies and more - all wanting to appear in the videos."

The response from the adult film industry was equally enthusiastic, Segel said. Manhunt offered professional porn stars an opportunity to step behind the camera and film the scenes. Among the stars who took the opportunity were Collin O'Neal, Caesar and Jeremy Hall, all of whom are featured in the debut videos. Falcon Studios granted permission for its lifetime exclusive, Matthew Rush, to demonstrate his cinematic skills. OnTheHunt is the first time in Rush's film career that he appears in a non-Falcon property, Segel said.

According to Blumenthal, OnTheHunt will premiere a brand new amateur video every Tuesday. A bonus episode, featuring behind-the-scenes B-roll, outtakes, short fetish scenes, contests and interviews also will be added to the site each Thursday.

"You never know what or who you will see on OnTheHunt," Segel said. "It may be the guy you've seen on Manhunt that you always wanted to hook up with. It may be your next-door neighbor, or maybe even one of your friends. OnTheHunt allows men access into Manhunt members' most intimate lives."
