[v]Intro promises(3)

There are some great promises at Gay The Classic Porn. There are also photos, a big cast list and some great box shot covers that will take old timers right back to the early days, and yet will still appeal to lovers of gay porn. The movies come from the 60ís right through to the 1990ís, we are told that there are biographies and that there are daily updates too.

[v]Impression(3.5)

Whoa! First impression? I entered into the network page and came across straight Hentai which was a bit of a shock. Be prepared. There are four sites in this network and you will need to click on the Gay one when you get inside. That done, I then discovered that there are actually only 170 titles in the gay area and that the promise of thousands of movies must relate to the entire network, most of which is straight themed. I also noticed that the upload dates for the movies were from 2011, so there are no daily updates to this site it seems, and it currently looks like the site is static; there was nothing listed under Ďcoming soon.í So donít expect too much.

But you can expect lots of old classics and a few famous names from the past, like John Holmes, and some names from the present like director Chi Chi LaRue (directing ĎJumperí from 1992). There were some titles that did not have dates and I was interested to check out the quality from the older movies. I found one that looked old (it was definitely filmed on film, not video, and looked almost like Super 8) and found that I could run a stream or take a download. The transfer rate was up around 180 Kbps which wasn't too bad.

I then checked out a more recent production, and by recent I mean 1992, and found slightly better visuals but the same choices of viewing; one stream and one download. As far as quality goes, you have to remember that these movies have been transferred from their original Celluloid to some kind of digital format for presentation on the site. That might result in some loss of quality, but theyíve actually done not a bad job here, and where possible, you've got decent enough viewing. Of course, older films may now work well at full screen, but some were ok; a bit hit and miss maybe but such is the nature of sites that contain classic movies.

And they are classic in that they cover the years when only sailors, cowboys and mechanics ever appeared in gay porn, guys with big moustaches, sunglasses and hair, you know the kind of thing. But there are, in later releases, your smooth jocks and some younger guys. Itís all a big mix of themes and studios, actors and directors.
And so on to the other features of the site. I was wondering where the galleries might be, as the tour promised images. I didnít see any sets with the movies, not even screen caps. I tried the FAQ page, but no joy there. I went to the Stars area, the model index, where I found links to each guyís filmography, and lots of faces arranged alphabetically, but no galleries (and no Jeff Stryker either which was a surprise). So it looks like that tour promise only applies to the straight sites.

I was able to read short description of some movies though and find out some information, the cast names were linked to their model index appearance so I could easily find other scenes they may have appeared in, and there are some interactive options. Members are able to rate and comment on what you see, there are links where you can send in ideas, and a membersí poll. The site is also easy enough to navigate and although it looks busy and cluttered at times, it all works just fine. .

One last thing about Gay The Classic Porn: watch out for the pre-checked cross-sales on the sig up pages, you run the risk of joining three sites in one go.

[v]Conclusion(2.8)

Gay The Classic Porn has 170 full length movies, around 70 minutes each, but it is not updating. These movies are from the 80ís and 90ís, in the main, and you only have one choice of stream and one of download. Itís fine for what it is, but I am not sure that a recurring membership would be worthwhile. You can take as many movies as you want though, and if youíre also happy with straight porn then you get an even bigger deal. Some blasts from the past appear for sure and what the site really proves is that gay porn is just as hot now as it was back then.
