The tour page at Herzog Videos evokes imagery of European hillsides, gals in clogs, and, strangely enough, women lactating into coffee cups. Either way, if you're into retro porn, particularly of the European variety, the tag-lines and teasers I'm seeing here make this site look like a must-have. But I can't be sure until I have a look inside. Care to join me?

The tour page at Herzog Videos evokes imagery of European hillsides, gals in clogs, and, strangely enough, women lactating into coffee cups. Either way, if you're into retro porn, particularly of the European variety, the tag-lines and teasers I'm seeing here make this site look like a must-have. But I can't be sure until I have a look inside. Care to join me?

Once logged into this site, I was immediately digging into content. This was, thanks no no small part, to their very modest layout. Outside of a few filters for date and content type and a simple main menu, there's not much you have to be bothered with.

So, not having to worry about a confuisng layout, I went ahead and scouted out the DVD titles. There's 23 in total, so far, and though I can't read many of them they're all European I have a pretty good idea of what they're about. Plus, they include English descriptions. Basically, expect lots of hardcore vintage sex involving fantasy scenarios, complete with expensive sets. In short, quality stuff.

Indeed, I was impressed with the content. We get a lot of good retro European porn we're talking about best-of-the-best from the early '70s straight to the late '80s. This is back when bushes were in style, condoms were a joke, and sexy was free and wild. Oh, and back when it had storylines, too. To say I was pleased would be an understatement.

And while these films may not have been directed by Werner Herzog, they still exhibit the craftsmanship you'd expect from a fine film maker certainly on a level not often seen in porn these days. In fact, watching these scenes, I felt an lovely mixture of nostalgia and arousal. It was as if I'd traveled back 15 years, and I was watching my Uncle's pornos on my old VCR. The kind of porn that had stories, quality sets, and was, most importantly of all, was shot on real film. So, if sort of atmosphere is necessary to get your trousers off, you'll love these titles.

This site isn't free of shortcoming, however, and the first one that really jumped out at me was the lack of a model index. This is, to some extent, excusable considering how long ago these movies were shot. Hell, half these babes are probably dead. Still, though, you'd think they could dig up some information on at least a few of them. Especially the bonafide porn stars of the bunch.

Another navigational issue is that there's nothing here in the way of timestamps. So, it's almost impossible for a new member to know what sort of update schedule to expect. However, I purposefully kept this one on my desk a few weeks, just to track their progress. And I'm happy to report that in that time, the archive has grown just shy of 20 updates. Not bad.

The video quality is poor, though. Even the latest videos are far from modern HD. In fact, it hasn't improved since the site's inception. ON the bright side, download speeds were lightning fast, averaging 2.4 megabytes-per-second.

Worse still, there's just not a lot of content. I mean 109 scenes just doesn't compare well with most sites out there. But this is a true niche site.

Besides, you get plenty of bonus content. There's tons of sites on the network, and one has over 400 videos alone.

[v]Conclusion(3.7)

Herzog Videos has its share of issues, namely video quality, a lack of subtitles, and an, at times, overly simplistic layout. Nevertheless, I would, with full confidence, recommend this site to anyone into retro porn. If you're into both Euro and retro porn, well, you'd be insane to pass this one up. All in all, I can't recommend this site enough.
