I think I might have just solved the education problem in North America. Like the solution to most of life's problems, the answer is "naked women." I just finished spending some quality time on Vintage Pics and although I ended up learning about the history and social climate of the past 100years or so, I did it all with a smile on my face and a hand down my pants.
I have come across other vintage porn sites in my time, but without question this is the best and most thorough one I have seen so far. It takes a few too many clicks to get into the actual site, but once you're there you're treated to a nice homepage divided into various eras: 1800s, 1920s, 1930s, etc. up to the 1960s.
The amount of content is excellent. There are 247 sets of pictures divided by era and/or by specific content, like '60s boobs, enema, lesbian, pinups, nudes and, of course, Marilyn Monroe. The quality of the pictures is actually quite good overall, but of course most of the older photos are either grainy or blurred as one would expect from a picture taken over 50 years ago.
Yes, there is also a movie section in which you'll find 59 vintage clips from the '20s through to the '70s, many of which also come with some interesting voiceover information about the era and the significance of such films. The movies are not downloadable, but can be streamed in average-looking Flash format.
After your history lesson, I'm thinking most of you will want to come back to the present day and see some good ol' post millennium fucking and sucking. This is made possible by the inclusion of all the bonuses. Most of it's crappy video feed stuff that doesn't always even load. However, there are many pictures and a video section that contains loads of great-quality streaming films featuring the contemporary hardcore action we all know and love.
Overall, I really enjoyed the vintage stuff. Updates appear to be about three times a week, but there seems to be less content than there was on our last visit. They may be removing old stuff when they add new, but the setup is such that it's hard to be sure what's going on. It was really fun and interesting to see the development of porn through the ages, so if this is something that interests you, Vintage Pics is the site to check out.
