Price

$27.63/Month

Looking at porn in 2011, you might be dismayed by the abundance of over-inflated breasts, arrogant jizz-spurting jocks, and a rather noticeable lack of true sensuality. Why not head back to a time when hardcore adult movies were less about cramming something as huge as possible into the tightest hole available and more about putting a man and a woman, both sexy and eager to please, into a scene together and watching the sparks fly. Retro Raw hosts a great collection of vintage smut starring some of the sexiest men and women to ever grace the small (or large) screen. This is one hardcore porn site that knows that the 70's simply can’t be beat!

In a 1998 interview with fellow filmmaker Mike Figgis, Paul Thomas Anderson, director of Boogie Nights (1997) lamented the current state of the porn industry, calling out male actors for not being particularly sexy, the positions employed for being unnatural, and the tendency of directors to force the performers to accommodate the camera and not the other way round. It seems that if “PTA” made Boogie Nights about the contemporary porn world, it would be a lot less affectionate. It’s easy to understand his point of view; just take a look at any decent fuck flick from the 70s and you’ll see something that looks like,and may very well be, genuine sexual chemistry amid all the tittyfucks, deep throats, and cumshots. Guys like John Holmes weren’t just known for their significant physical endowments, but for their performance abilities. In other words: a big dick does not a legend make, you gotta be able to act, too! Retro Raw is one of the leading European websites devoted entirely to vintage pornography. Hosting some of the best work from the Golden Age’s greatest performers - Holmes, Ginger Lynn, Vanessa Del Rio, Seka, and the early efforts of Peter North and Nina Hartley - for roughly $27.63 per month (converted from €19.95), Retro Raw might be a tad on the expensive side, but no more than shelling out for some vintage Super8 or 16mm film reels; and it’s much, much more convenient.

Pros:
Presenting some of the last great superstars of porn, Retro Raw hosts the work of Tori Welles, Barbara Dark, Seka, Loni Sanders, Samantha Fox, Penny Nichols, Al Goldstein, John C. Holmes, Taylor Wane, Shauna Grant, Ginger Lynn, Candida Royale, Tom Byron, Nina Hartley, and John Martin, among many others.

Hosting some extremely racy movies that showcase everything from blowjobs to outdoor assfucking, there’s some truly exceptional sex hosted here at Retro Raw. The performers seem like natural gods and goddesses of cock and cunt, and manage to inject a strong dose of sensuality into porn, something that’s often missing these days.

Ever seen puppets have sex? Well, aside from in Team America: World Police? Didn’t think so. You’ll see it here at Retro Raw, though, as well as oral, anal, vaginal gangbangs, lesbians, huge dildos, lingerie fetish, BDSM, and much, much more. Who said the olden days were boring?

Hosting 138 scenes, Retro Raw has gathered a pretty decent collection of Golden Age hardcore and it’s presented to you in a fairly clear and concise fashion. Each movie is pulled from a DVD release and brings better quality than you’d expect from 30-year-old productions, and the runtimes often push 70 minutes and bring lots of great stuff your way.

Cons:
It’s surprising to find Retro Raw offering no other viewing options besides the two downloadable WMV formats (640x480 and 320x240 pixels). When movies are this old, it’s important to be able to sample them before committing to an often lengthy download. Oh yeah, the downloads could be a lot swifter on better, faster servers.

Obviously none of Retro Raw’s titles are exclusive or original, but that pretty much goes without saying, doesn’t it? They may be found on any number of online retro porn archives, as well as in adult store bargain bins nationwide.

There’s very little to the navigation system of Retro Raw. Adding more features would make the site much easier and more fruitful to browse. A model index, content category list, update list, and studio sub-sections would be great.

It’s a shame to find that Retro Raw, like most other vintage hardcore sites, have neglected photographic content altogether. Pictorials were and still are a very important part of the pornography industry, so why exclude them?

Conclusion:
Retro Raw is an apt name for this site: offering Golden Age of Porn content that is extremely ribald and sexy, hosted in a rather rough, homemade fashion, “raw” aptly describes both this site and its content. With more than 130 full-length feature porn movies online, there’s a decent, if not exactly huge, archive growing here and those of you who long for the glory days of the adult industry when AIDS and fake tits were seldom seen will immensely enjoy these vintage productions. Retro Raw does, however, need quite a lot of work. The navigation system offers next to nothing for the information-hungry home viewer, a complete lack of photo content that would marvelously supplement the videos, and not a single streaming video on the entire site. These issues may seem minor but they definitely have an impact on your enjoyment of this otherwise fine 70s porn emporium.
