Retro Raw Review
Taking you back to the golden age of porn Retro Raw offers you full length DVDs of classic porn movies. You see John Holmes and Seka in action. Ever wonder why many say Ginger Lynn was a porn superstar in her day? Now you get to see as you watch many of her movies. The Retro Raw tour gives you a pretty good idea what type of action you can expect in the site, but the memberís area navigation leave something to be desired. It is basically just a group of pages with the box covers for the movies listed on it. You just have to browse through and find something you like.
The models, for the most part, are pretty good looking with some exceptions. Sure you get some of the known stars of the day that are very hot, but you also get a good number of more average looking women. Thirty years ago porn was not as accepted in the mainstream as it is today so there was a much smaller pool of women to choose from. Also this is clearly the age before shaving became cool. These girls have some serious bush. If that turns you on you are in luck.
Retro Raw is classic porn at its best. You get all the cheesy plots, horrible acting and poorly conceived sets as well as the wild music as they tried to make porn seem like real movies, just with sex. Many modern porn movies have just shrugged that off. They know weíre here to watch the fucking and donít care about the plot, but these older retro movies still try to give you a story. When they do get to the action it is pretty vanilla compared to todayís standards. There is a lot of regular fucking and sucking and some occasional wild stuff like a deep throat or a double penetration.
Photos and Video:
There are around 100 DVDs on Retro Raw. The only real pictures you get are some thumbnail samples on each DVDís page. The movies themselves are in WMV format and many of the movies offer you a low and high quality choice. The quality, be it low or high, is subjective. All of these movies were either shot on film or older video cameras then eventually transferred to DVD so they quality of them is only as good as the original. Surprisingly many of them still look really good and have a good picture quality. I feel the low and high quality options are simply to allow those on slower connections the option of having a more compressed movie to download. These lower quality movies are often more grainy or blurry at full screen size than the higher quality, but they are much smaller in file size. They are not the crystal clear high def movies of today, but they still look pretty nice.
The updates seem to come somewhat regularly. Sometimes there are updates a few times a week and other times it may be every other week. I assume finding this material isnít easy so I would guess the updates on Retro Raw come as they are able to get it.
Your membership to Retro Raw does give you access to some bonus movies and pictures. These are modern porn, not retro stuff and the main attraction is a site that features some teen babes live on their home webcams that you can talk to.
Retro Raw is really a trip down memory lane. When I was 18 the first porn I ever owned was a bad movie about a magical cursed monkey paw. It had Vanessa Del Rio in it and I must have spanked it to her one sex scene hundreds of times. This site brings me back to those days. If you are longing for a trip back when porn was fun, cheesy and still very raw and amateur, this is a site for you. There is a good amount of DVDs, the movies are surprisingly high in quality and there are regular updates. The navigation system could use a little work, but that is a minor detail on an otherwise very good site.
