My Opinion About HotGayClassics

Since the internet exploded, there's been a bevy of amateurs who have become overnight sensations. However, if you're looking to get back to the days when stars were stars, then Hot Gay Classics might just be up your alley. Here you'll find men from the pre-condom 1970's to safe sex porn of the 80's and beyond.

Every Friday, a new porno is added to the growing archive. The site hasn't been around for long, so the number of videos is a little sparse at the moment. There are already 29 scenes to date, though. These are full 15 to 25-minute scenes from longer movie titles. You can make a keyword search and the two most popular videos are always listed at the top of the members' area. Beyond this, there are few ways to navigate. At the moment, this isn't problematic, but as the number of scenes increases, I can see it becoming tricky. For example, 'Nine Plus Inches' is a title of a complete movie and there are two scenes from the title at the moment. However, the scenes aren't grouped together, so after watching scene one, you need to go searching for scene two.

The majority of films are so far offered in colour. However, there are a couple of old black and white porn films, which some aficionados will appreciate. When you click on a thumbnail you are linked to the video page where you get some added information about the film. The decade that it was made is available, directors are credited and when possible, and if they are known, so are the actors. There is always a scene synopsis and the films also come with picture galleries.

I didn't expect the pictures to be fantastic. I can't imagine that filmmakers took all that many photos when working on a film back in those days. Indeed, the photos are 720x480 movie captures. They aren't fantastic, but at least if you want to save them, there is a Zip file to download. Also, there are around 110 images in a set and you can also save single photos if you just wanted a few of them and not the whole set.

Many of these films have storylines. Apart from a handful, the scenes don't typically drop us in the middle of a blowjob. Often, stories surround situations where two guys find themselves in a horny predicament. As the narratives progress, sexual tension mounts and the two guys (or more) end up releasing the pent up energy with a bang. Expect hair balls and shaved ones when the movies are from the 1990s, and mostly count on hot, hot action. There are circle jerks, three-ways and there's even a touch of interracial and leather in this mix along with a whole lot of cock-sucking and fucking with unknown and known stars.

Videos are available in varying qualities, in full-length and clips and as either WMV (1420kbps, 720x480) or MOV (2100kbps, 720x480) files. Some of these films were obviously made on film stock or video that is almost 20 years old. A bit of resolution has been lost over time, but then again this does give each film an authentically retro look. For the most part the films are clear enough and some are better than others. However, fans of pornstars like Jack Wrangler and Brandon Wilde will be happy to find a couple of spicy scenes on Hot Gay Classics.

Final Verdict

Hot Gay Classics may not have a huge archive at the moment, but the site is off to a good start with 29 scenes and the promise of weekly updates. The content will need to be better organized as the archive grows, but for those looking for great vintage classics when men were hairy (mostly) and when there were stars rather than overnight internet sensations, Hot Gay Classics looks promising.
