Taking you back to the days when porn was shot on film or video tape or even in black and white, Vintage Gay Loops shows you the history of gay porn. Featuring some of the first erotic gay movies and taking you all the way up to the 70's and 80's they have all the stars of the past, hard to find videos and vintage gay erotica like you have never seen before. One part museum and one part porn site, Vintage Gay Loops is unique and will have you enthralled.Pros:
They have some really cool vintage porn and when possible they have digitally remastered it so that it looks a lot better than it otherwise might. They have a good collection here and are always updating the site so it is growing as they find new treasures in the vault. Most of the scenes they have here feature a movie as well as some pictures.
From a technical standpoint they do a decent job of restoring and remastering some of these scenes. Some are older than others or were shot on lower quality cameras than other so the actual quality can vary from scene to scene, but the guys that run this site have put forth a solid effort to get you the highest possible quality video to watch. All of the scenes have a video that you can watch in an online stream or a version you can download. It looks like WMV is the format of choice here. The streams loaded fast and played very well for me. The pictures are much like the movies in that their quality can range greatly from scene to scene, but for the most part they look good.
There is some really interesting stuff here. From true vintage male erotica to real hardcore fucking they have it all here. I loved some of the cheesy 80's stuff with the wild porn music, 80's fashion and cool vibe. They revel in the clichÈ of men fucking in bathrooms and steam rooms and bunk houses, but that is part of the charm. They also have information about the scenes and where they come from as well as some great info about the history of gay porn. It is kind of like you can cum then read and learn something.Cons:
It seems like the updates are a little inconsistent. I would guess that they just update the site when they get new material, but is hard to know for sure.Conclusion:
There are a decent number of vintage porn sites out there these days, but very few vintage gay porn sites. This is one of the few I have seen and it is a nice, well put together site. They have done a good job of finding some nice vintage and classic content and they appear to have cleaned up and remastered the video and pictures rather well. The site has a good number of scenes in it and there are updates, it is just a little hard to know how often those updates come. This is going to be one of those sites that is not for everyone, but if you have a passion for or an interest in classic/vintage gay porn give this one a look. I think you will enjoy its mix of porn, information and old school erotica.
