Complete review published on 07.02.2018
Retro Males collects classic (old) porn scenes and save them to the members' area, sets them up to stream and download and makes sure you get the best quality possible, and good download choices. It's a relatively new site but is updating with a new scene each week and what sets it apart from other similar sites is that it holds good info and background. There are star names here we'd nearly forgotten about, given new life in this growing collection of gay hardcore.

Bijou Videos are the guys behind this retro site and they've got things right. There are several of these 'classic' movie sites around and very few of them actually give you any info about the models or the scenes; here you get all that along with a collection of 312 scenes from gay porn movies from the 70s and 80s.
You don't have to be a connoisseur or collector to get all the details here, but there are videos from various studios, and probably some titles you might remember - depending on how old you are! These are USA movies, at least the ones I have seen so far are, with titles such as 'The Grease Monkeys' starring Kip Noll, Nick Rodgers and Lee Marlin. It's from Jaguar and the cover reads, 'XXX rated, all male action, color and sound.' It's a blast from the past. There's also 'A Night At The Adonis' with Jack Wrangler in the cast - you must remember him, surely? This movie is from 1978 and came from Hand in Hand studios. And so the list goes on.
But you don't have to be a film buff to enjoy the videos. The action speaks for itself. Yes, there are a lot of long-haired guys with big moustaches, a few completely untrimmed twinks and smooth jocks (some very cute ones, look out for Gavin Geoffrey and Tom Rucker), and they get down to bareback hardcore, as these videos are mainly pre-condom days. There's plenty of sucking and fucking and, as these are older movies, you get storylines and build-ups as well. The dialogue is perfectly audible and reasonably well spoken, and the filming is fine too. Obviously the quality is not going to be great as they are moves from celluloid or video now digitalised, but you do get three good quality versions to take. At the top is 1,280 x 720 @ 9,000 kbps and there care two other Mp4 versions to take as well. You can also stream and movies run for around 12 to 20 minutes.
Retro Males also has 80 galleries to view and these hold various numbers of images each, depending on what it's a gallery of. There are some stills pics with screen caps from some movies at 48 x 270, there are images that look like they have come from glossy porn mags, and there are galleries of specific stars, such as Al Parker and Will Seagers which hold larger images. Image quality is fine, though some pics are small, it all depends on how old the image is, what condition it was in when it was saved, and where it comes from. Galleries have slideshows, easy online navigation through sets and also zip files, and there are some real collectors' items in here.
The other thing the site has and does well is the model index. It's not just a list of guys and their videos, there is good background and biographic information in here. I followed the cutie I'd fallen for, Gavin, and found out that he's still around though not working in porn, and had gone on to do all kinds of other interesting stuff. I'll have to look him up and see if he is as cute now as he was back in 1980-something. There are 68 models to check out so far and more info and guys will be added as the site updates.
By way of extras, members also get to rate the content and leave comments, and you can make up your own favourites store. There are some bonus videos, 18 so far, and they offer a mix of hardcore and guys as they are sample movies from other sites that you can then link to and sign up to. It's a neat little bonus in a very good looking site that deserves to go a long way.
Of all the classic gay porn collections I've seen, it looks to me that Retro Males is going to be the one to go to the top of the list. It's still fairly new but updating each week, it's got a lot of detail about movies and stars, it's easy to use, and there are decent quality downloads and streams, considering the age of some of the videos. Go for a longer-term sign-up to get the best value and prepare to blast your nuts while watching some blasts from the past.
