My Opinion About RetroSex

While some of us love the new styles of gonzo and reality porn, there are others who want something along the lines of erotic pinups and vintage stag films, and Retro Sex just happens to be one of those sites that offers a collection.

Every Sunday, updates their collection, which isn't bad considering that it can't be too easy to track down half-decent quality vintage porn. However, there are no bonus sites available, and if you find the novelty of vintage wears off, then you might be stuck to play out your membership. Of course, there are those of you that probably never tire of old-style hardcore and softcore content.

The content is original and is owned by this site alone, so you aren't likely to find the same images or films on other vintage sites, and I loved this aspect of RetroSex right away. There are 97 pages that you can browse, yet I was also thankful that the site categorizes their content into stag films, true crime, scrapbook photos, Hollywood snapshots, XXX comics and 1930's pulp magazines.

It doesn't look as if there are any sets of pictures per se, yet there are literally over 10,000 images from the earlier half of the 20th century. Images have been restored, so the quality is much better than I ever anticipated, even if the 455x576 pictures aren't huge in size. Not all of the photos are pornographic. The Hollywood and true crime categories, for example are meant to be more nostalgic than anything else. All photos appear to be black and white, there's plenty of hairy pussy for those that love the good old days, and you'll find pictures of solo models, blowjobs, lesbians, hardcore and even some snapshots from burlesque shows.

There are at least 140 movies, yet I wished that they were organized a bit better than they were. In any case, I was surprised and excited to see that not only carried a lot of fetish and BDSM films, which were underground but popular in that era, but lots of hardcore and even some softcore movies. One of the newest additions to the site featured an old film of Norma Jean before she transformed into Marilyn Monroe. Other films are old homemade movies, and there are also more professional productions. All the films appear to be 225Kbps 320x240 .rm files and there aren't other options. Obviously, the quality isn't up to the standards we expect from porn today, but you kind of have to cut this site a break. First of all, the films would have had to have been transferred into digital format and second, even Hollywood had trouble storing early century films that were made of a flammable substance, so in fact I find it pretty damn awesome that the RetroSex was able to get their hands on as many films as they carry, let alone restore them to a viewable quality. Movies aren't more than five minutes a piece, but there are all sorts of scenes from the erotic to interracial threesomes.

Final Verdict

I'd consider Retro Sex to be much more erotic than anything else at least in the photo galleries. They had a different style of shooting nude babes and sex back then, and you won't find any extreme close-up shots of pussy or cream-pie like you do these days. The film quality isn't perfect, but considering the effort it takes to even provide vintage footage, I'd say this site offers a good selection.
