Why is vintage gay porn so much better than contemporary gay porn?

    They guys are less primped and pruned, however the video quality sucks so I will stick with newer porn. I don't want to have to squint just to get off.

    The guys in vintage porn all look like Tom Selleck or Rex Harrison or my dad in those movies.

    I prefer newer porn. The guys are prettier.

    Yeah, I like men who look like men, not twinkish Aryan youth. We know your preference is the Sean Cody/Bel Ami aesthetic -- we've been over that. icon_wink.gif

    Okay, there's nothing in contemporary porn that's this good.

    I'm having a paradigm shift...

    No I mean in most modern porn the guys have better bodies, seem more groomed and are younger and usually facially better looking.

    70's and 80's gay porn (for one I don't even think half of the guys were gay) were kinda out of shape, really hairy and all had moustaches. Nothing wrong with hairy and nothing wrong with being a chub but that seemed to dominate porn for a while.

    Out of shape = false
    Really hairy = false
    All had moustaches = false

    And there are plenty of gay-for-payers still all over porn. You make things up a lot, kid.

    Well most of the vintage porn I've seen had burly guys with a lot of hair and they tended to be older. I admittedly haven't watched a lot of old porn because the production levels weren't as good as today's.

    I've seen a few really old ones from the mid/late 1970s that were film transfers. Pretty sure these were the ones that were shown in porn theaters or booths at sex shops. The audio was just cheezy music. The guys didn't speak at all. And the interesting thing was the emphasis on the money shot. It seems that slow motion cum shots were a popular effect back then.

    What I find very disappointing about contemporary porn is that it seems like it's very heavily directed. The guys are going through the motions mechanically and not enjoying themselves. The Sean Cody and Corbin Fisher studios are the worst in that respect with the guys doing that high speed bunny fucking; who fucks like that all the time? But many or most of them aren't any better.

    Early Colt films, late 70s to the early 80s, were incredible! Jim French was sort of the Russ Meyer for gay men. He replaced big-titted beautiful women with handsome, muscular and hung men. Many of the strict obscenity laws were eased in the 70s, allowing for much greater "artistic" freedom.

    Gay men no longer had to settle for physical culture mags, Bruce of Hollywood or Athletic Guild stills, etc., or 50' 8mm b&w reels sold in the back pages of questionable mags.

    Many of the early porn actors were friends or couples in real life. It made a difference.

    TheGuyNextDoor saidIt was a freer time and guys looked more raw and natural on film back then. There was an art form to the old studios that you don't really see today. It was quite a bit more erotic in the past. In some films, they actually appear to be making love rather than just getting off.


    Yes, it's this that's missing from contemporary porn. Vintage porn captures what's hot about male-to-male action: the taboo aspect of the freedom of it. Perhaps it's because homosexuality is more accepted (a good thing) but the gay community is becoming like Disney -- packaged for mainstream consumption. Gay porn now is emotionally sterile. Gay porn used to represent when gay men were still the secret guardians of primitive masculine freedom -- when anonymous sex with a hot stranger was like saying "fuck you" to the Puritan middle class.

    I don't think it can be replicated because the paradigm has shifted so far in favor of equality. So that Wild Wild West "be free, young man" aspect of being gay is gone now, but thank goodness the porn of the era caught it.

    My favourite porn is put out by Triga films in the UK. It's rough'n'ready - in a production sense, but also in terms of the sex. It feels far less directed and honest. And the men are more bloke-next-door realistic types.

    The rugby themed films always please me most.

    I'm sorry but this did nothing for me. The bad music was distracting. Having grown up on straight porn I can only get off to the guys in straight porn.

    they wouldnt use protection as often which somehow turns ppl on much more thats why the bareback vids are always some of the most watched. they were also "manlier" and much more rougher or endearing and sensual when need be. it felt like it was a legit peak into their bedrooms. didn't look as fake as now, now you get all these guys faking moans and groans and it gets too annoying cuz the lust is ripped out of it. it really is a business and they really think of it as work instead of thinking of it as a fun side thing that you get paid for doing. the dudes are less waxed, shaved, styled, moisturized all these annoying as things that take away from the masculinity. now you get hese tops that look so efiminite which in my opinion is a turn off. and you get these bottoms that squeal like girls. its like WE ARE FRIGGEN GAY LOL! we enjoy sex with men because we like MEN! not women or feminine acting men (which is also ok, but come on not in porn plzzzzz! lol) anywho thats my rant :p

    Well, the bold is accurate.
