When VHS tapes and Laserdiscs were introduced to the public, it brought pornography out of the theatres and into the homes of millions of people, enabling them to practice self-love without fear of prosecution. It is this era that gave us The Classic Porn, without which I would not be doing the job that I do today.
There are those who love TheClassicPorn due to nostalgia and others who love it because it features beautiful women with full bushes and insatiable appetites for sex, the likes of which cannot be seen in today's cookie-cutter porn. Whether you saw it the first time around or it's brand new to you, porn from the '70s, '80s and early '90s will satisfy you in ways you had not previously thought possible.
The site is adding new content on a daily basis, so there's always something new to see. Also, instead of scenes from videos, they are adding full-length DVDs, which is a welcome change, although it also means that there is no way to select a specific scene from a DVD other than scroling through it while it is playing. The content is nonexclusive, but it is a great collection nonetheless.
Currently, there are 3,271 full-length DVDs, which means there are more than 9,000 sex scenes from movies like "Deep Throat" and "Candy Stripers." The site has added and removed many viewing formats in its history, but this time around every movie I downloaded was either in a below-average or average-quality MP4 file and they also have a streaming option.
In the same way that some people prefer LP records over MP3s, there are those who love old-timer porn with its grainy images and scratchy sounds more than newer videos with clearer definition. There's something sexy about seeing a less-experienced Nina Hartley in the days before her breast implants or watching Candy Samples fuck John Holmes in their glory days. If you love classic porn the way some people love classic rock, then you're going to love this site.
There are photos, but they don't have their own section. To see them, you have to look through the profiles of the different stars. There are about 300 galleries and the number of pics in each varies wildly. You can also submit your own photos with a pornstar in them (which seem to all come from classic porno mags). All the sets can be downloaded in Zip files. A bunch have high-res shots, but being retro, they're still a bit grainy.
Your membership comes with access to three related bonus sites: Gay The Classic Porn, Classic Porn Scenes and Retro Porn Archive. Two more are promised, but that claim has been there for a while. There's still a great amount of content that should keep lovers of The Classic Porn reminiscing for a good long while.
