[v]Intro promises(4)

Bijou Gay Movies is the online home of one of the top and classic gay porn studios. The site is the flagship for the company and offers you over 275 exclusive movies with your membership. There are also erotic audio stories to listen to and masses of variety. These movies date back to 1969 and the pre-condom days so you have original and hard to find classics that are as boner-making today as they were all those years ago.

[v]Impression(4)

Bijou has been a leader in gay erotic since 1969, but you donít have to be a fan of the company to want to sign in to this site. The movies here pre-date the current condom days and they come across with atmosphere and all the erotica you could wish for. Itís also a great place to come to find those films you might remember seeing in your early days and which would have otherwise have been lost to us. Start at the home page and catch up with the latest news, check the side menu for the various parts of the site, check the links for other interesting places to go, or use the drop down list of 55 full DVDs to get you stared. (I didnít find the promised audio stories though.)

The membersí area is actually very simply laid out with recent additions featured on the home page and then simple links to scenes, photos and a press department. I went to the all videos by scenes area first and found 27 index pages with 12 sample shots and links per page; that was easy enough to use and the samples were clear enough, considering that some of them have been transferred from celluloid or video to some kind of new digital format. I checked one of the scenes on the last index page and one on the first, to see if the viewing options were the same, and they were: you have two kinds of WMV download, a high quality and a smaller version and you have a Flash stream which starts as soon as the page is ready. This is a mid-range size and so should suit more or less every connection speed. So, viewing the scenes and downloading them is simple enough.

And oh! To hear that music. Yes, you've got classic porn musak here as well as classic looking models. Remember the days of big hair and moustaches, Cowboys and bears, smooth twinks with tufty bushes and all that jizz? Well, itís all here just as you would hope for and expect. The movies stand up well though, if you can put the Ďdatingí out of your head. The sex is still hardcore and there is something delightfully innocent about it all. (Not all scenes have the musak, there is dialogue and natural sound too, and some better acting from the models than you find these days.) There are story lines and build-ups, not like some of todayís (Eastern European) productions where the scene opens on two anonymous guys getting it on. All this adds to your enjoyment.
What I didnít see here were upload dates, and there was not a huge amount of information about the movies, who appears and when they were made and released. There are names of the actors are on the viewing page, but these not linked to a model index or anything like that. You can rate the scenes as you go though, but some more interactive elements and some more information would be really good to see. The viewing page for one scene comes with links to other scenes from that DVD/Video though so you can easily jump from scene to scene.

And as for your other menu items: the All Photos link will take you to screen cap galleries from each movie, 275 in total when I looked at the site. Sadly there were some collections here showing missing images, a temporary glitch I hope, but others led to decent sized galleries with reasonable screen caps at 640 x 480 with a choice of six speeds in the slideshows. You've got to accept that the quality is not going to be up to todayís high standards if HD, but when you view this content you will be pleasantly surprised at how well Bijou Gay Movies has transferred the originals to the digital set up; and you are going to love the erotic, natural and well made hardcore from all those years ago.

[v]Conclusion(4.1)

I always like to applaud sites that preserve our gay porn heritage and Bijou Gay Movies is doing just that. The stock of films is great, there are plenty of scenes and pics to view and many interesting links too. Iíd have liked more detail and some more interactive options as usual, but you canít knock the site for giving you a glimpse of what porn used to be like. Modern studios could learn a lesson or two here, and this is a great site for all collectors as well as for all gay porn fanatics.
