I love the hunks on Retro Males and actually find them more appealing than a lot of the gay pornstars you see nowadays. There's just something sexy about the studs from the late '70s and early '80s. At first, I thought it was their mustaches, but many present-day performers have them too. So I think it has to do with their bodies.
I really like a guy who's in shape, but doesn't look like he spends all his time working out. Mainstream "gym culture" really didn't take off until the mid-'80s and quite a few of the men on RetroMales predate that trend. So they have muscles and taut stomachs, but their physiques aren't overly pumped up and appear toned, not shredded. There are some hairy guys, too.
One thing that remains on trend is a big fat cock. In these often pre-condom classics (nearly 70% are tagged "bareback") the dicks are uncut more often than not and they usually shave around the base of their shaft. As much as picking pubes matted with lube out of your teeth is a pain, pubic hair can be sexy too.
They're adding a new video once a week and you'll already find 289 videos to stream and download. You have a few resolutions and while the best has high-def stats, they don't always look that great. Clearly, the scenes weren't shot in that format and the footage is often sourced from old film stock that deteriorates a bit with age. Even the scenes that were digitized from the analog video are going to seem faded.
Still, they look decent enough, which is also true of a good portion of the images in the 89 galleries. They, too, may be digitally sampled from old magazines. They also sometimes throw in some vid caps, as the porn here predates DVDs - and videotapes, unlike DVDs, generally didn't come with any extras. It's been over five months since they added any new pics.
Your membership now includes access to the Gay Porn Mega Sites network including SD Boy, Daddy Raunch and Straight Men XXX. Whichever site you're browsing, you've got filtering options, tags and a basic search. You can track your favorites, rate the content and leave comments. There's a model index with stats and a bio and you can rate each guy. You can even apply to do some modeling yourself.
There's a 40GB daily download limit, but they let you know how much you've used thanks to a metered bar. I should mention that the first month's membership is streaming-only, but you can download the videos if you stick around past the first rebill. Retro Males has a good collection pre-condom classics featuring hung and mustacheod hunks.
