Pros: Huge Library Of Videos
NO DRM
Top Notch Streaming
Categorized Into Decades
Beginning To Digitally Restore Films
Screencap Previews
Cons: Not All Vids Have Download Option*
Some Vid Labeling Erroneous
Photos Are Mostly Screencaps
Some Films Are Silent
Bottom Line: This is a difficult site to grade because with the problems mentioned, it has a ton of very hard to get material. The material (meaning video/film) covers the whole 20th Century. Up to the 1940s, the offerings are sparse, but after that increase greatly in volume. Something like 7500 films all told. These are all derived from the mammoth "Blue Vanities" collection, that you may remember from video stores. (By the way, if you go to the Blue Vanities review here, it just redirects to this site).

The 1970s section to me is the most impressive. You have all the "Swedish Erotica" series, "Diamond", "Pretty Girls", "Dirty Movies", "Diverse Industries", "Screw", "Playmate", "Lasse Braun", "Collection", "Pleasure", and a whole lot more. Back in the day, this stuff cost a fortune, if you had a projector. Back then they were released as silents. Soundtracks have been added here (but not all of them). You will only hear the soundtrack after you download---the streaming versions have generic soundtracks, or even a projector sound no doubt because of the copyright infringements! There are so many of these loops, shorts, and stags that a month hardly scratches the surface.

There are problems however. A lot of the videos are streaming only. I solved this easily by downloading them with the latest RealPlayer, and then converting to another format. A bit time consuming, but worth the effort. Another problem I encountered was mislabeled films. Sometimes the film will have the title in the film, so you can label it that way.

The streams here for me have been flawless. A good way to preview what you want to download. The videos are DRM free. Download speed is average (ie:500 kb/s). They are offered in MPEG, with 2 different sizes: 720x480; 320x240. they do not label their video with technical detail. They have a page where digitally restored films are available. Obviously this is a slow process; as of this writing they have 41 done. Look great though. Forget the photo section---pretty much all screencaps.

Updating has slowed down recently, haven't seen one in 3 weeks. Maybe they're on vacation or something. They claim to still be processing the videos to get them online, which is probably true.

I give this site a high score chiefly because of the incredible hard to find content. If you're looking for that cheap porno thrill---move on, you won't like it. If you are a collector of vintage porn, this is the mother lode.

Monahan (42) Just curious whether this site has any stuff by Candy Barr (1950's era), Virginia Bell (1950's & 60's), Nancy Suiter (1970's) and/or Traci Lords (1980's & 90's)

Also, one of my favorites is the porn musical version of Alice in Wonderland.

I'm thinking about signing up for the 3day trial but thought I'd ask first.

Thanks.

I thought most of Traci Lords' work was illegal (at least what she did when underage) and no site would even think of running the risk of offering it.

True, but I hear that some European sites do have some of her stuff.

Yeah, I read that if the country's age of consent is lower then they can show her earlier stuff.

Sorry it took so long,I've been away.
The watermark is on the bottom right hand corner, it's not too big,it's the site's address---however, many have no watermark at all. This site is kind of like going back to 1982 and entering a massive porn warehouse! It is impossible to get through this site; yet i can't quit because I'm finding the most amazing stuff.

Yes to all the stars except Traci Lords. I've found a lot of Nancy Suiter. They have a functional search, but I've found more than they have in their search results.

Alice in Wonderland is available as a DVD on Amazon. See http://www.amazon.com/Alice-Wonderland-T...64232421&sr=8-22.
Its a bit pricey. I bought one last year used for $19.99 though.

Stew (0) Join site and has an amazing amount of material. I prefer to download and watch later but it seems that the downloads are not as long and the streams (if that is the correct was to describe) and the most important shot (literally) is the section of video missing. Has anyone else noticed this and is fixable.
