I love the kinds of hunks you'll find on Retro Males, because I actually find them more appealing than a lot of the gay pornstars you see nowadays. There is just something about the studs from the late '70s and early '80s that makes them so hot. In the past I'd have thought that it was all about the mustaches, but you can see lots of facial hair on present-day performers. So I think it's because they've got the kind of bodies I find the hottest.
I really like a guy who looks in shape, but doesn't look like he spends all his time working out. And I get the impression that mainstream "gym culture" really didn't take off until the mid-'80s and quite a few of the dudes on RetroMales predate that trend. So they definitely have some muscle and taut stomachs, but their physiques and abs aren't overly pumped up and appear toned, not shredded with definition. There are some hairy guys, but even if a man has only a bit of body hair, he keeps it intact.
One thing that apparently was in fashion back in the day and remains on trend even now is a big fat cock. Although it seems in these often pre-condom classics (nearly 70% are tagged "bareback") that the dicks are uncut more often than not and that usually they shave around the base of their shaft, so just their balls are shaved. As much as picking pubes matted with lube out of your teeth can be a pain, I always like the look of pubic hair.
They've added nine movies in the last month or so and you'll already find 136 videos to stream and download. You have a few options when it comes to their quality, but the best of them offers high-def stats, although they don't always look that great. Clearly the scenes weren't shot in that format and the footage is sourced from old film stock that would deteriorate a bit with age. Even those scenes digitized from analog video are going to seem faded.
Still, the flicks look decent enough considering what they are and I'd say that's also true of a good portion of the images in the 78 photo galleries. They, too, may be digitally sampled from old print magazines. They also sometimes simply throw in some vid caps into a gallery, as the porn here predates DVDs - and video tapes, unlike DVDs, generally didn't come with any extras. It has been over a month since they added any pics.
You get 12 bonus videos and although they're not vintage, you will see some studs who have paid homage to the '70s and '80s by growing porn 'staches worthy of old-school gay pornstars. These add limited value, of course, but you get a Rabbit's monthly discount if you join through our link. I think it pretty much guarantees that you'll get your money's worth if you join Retro Males.
