Retro Raw harkens back to a simpler time, a time before AIDS, iPods and TiVo, a time when John Holmes, Seka and Ginger Lynn ruled the world. Retro Raw offers high quality downloads of classic XXX-rated flicks from the seventies and eighties, a golden era for an industry that has since become jaded, cynical and bloated. Believe it or not, there was a time during the infancy of the porn business when blue movies had plots and production values; that time has long since passed us, sadly, but you can always visit here to relive those glory days.

Retro Raw is a very simply designed site yet it still manages to be difficult to navigate around because it forces you to browse page by page. The main member's area displays the latest three updates and then links you on to the "next page". To find movies in the archive you really only have one good option: click the menu link to see the box covers which lets you browse all of the videos with their named and DVD cover displayed.
I'll admit right here and now that I've never heard of any of the movies on Retro Raw. If you're looking for famous classics like Deep Throat and Debbie Does Dallas, well, you'd better look elsewhere because they aren't here. What you will find here is a depository of ancient adult film also-rans like Cutie Pie, King Cock and Mi Amor. These movies may not be internationally famous, but they certainly have their charms.
What Retro Raw lacks in blockbuster flicks it more than makes up for with star power. All the heavy hitters are here: Peter North, Vanessa Del Rio, etc. Hell, I think I even saw a young Ron Jeremy in one of these clips! Call me crazy if you must, but I'd much rather watch these average-looking starlets of the past do the nasty than some plastic bimbo with fake tits... In short, these porn pioneers make a welcome return on Retro Raw.
Currently, there are 84 movies on Retro Raw. Each movie has been taken from a DVD and is broken up into multiple clips; these WMV clips in turn come in two sizes: low and high. The clips couldn't be viewed in streaming mode at the time of this review, they were only available to download to your hard drive. The quality of the videos varies from movie to movie. Though all the movies come from DVDs, some look considerably better than others. Remember, the flicks on Retro Raw are twenty to thirty years old, so they'll look a little grainy and washed out no matter what, particularly in this digital landscape that we currently inhabit.
The movies are a hell of a lot of fun to watch. Granted, they're pretty goofy and tame by today's standards, but they are downright charming in their innocence. There's an enthusiasm in these movies that just doesn't exist in today's X-rated flicks. Also, there are a lot of hairy guys with bad moustaches in these movies, which is a good thing, if you ask me. It's pretty amusing to see all the outdated fashions, particularly when it comes to lingerie - I honestly can't believe that some of this stuff was actually considered erotic at some point in man's history! All in all, the campy movies on Retro Raw are incredibly entertaining.
The free tour here at Retro Raw lets you see exactly what you'll get inside by browsing through the pages of DVD titles so you can't really be disappointed when you get inside. They provide everything they promised, even if the navigation is a little time consuming. I haven't seen any better place than this to get all of these old DVDs in one place so it's highly recommended if you're in to that kind of thing.

I don't know why more people don't appreciate this type of porn from the early days and why this site did not get a better review. I grew up with this type of porn and I even found the videos from the very first porn movie I watched as a youngster. It was called Aunt Peg and I can even remember the first time I watched it and and became completely addicted to Peg. I am still in awe that this site scored so low on Amount of Content and Quality of Content. I am a member of the site and there is a good amount of content inside and as for the Quality of the content, you have to realize this porn was made in the 60's, 70's and early 80's and back then they did not have high definition or dvd quality cameras. Maybe when the next update for this review is done they will take that into consideration.
I absolutely love this site, but some of the things the review said are weird. It says this is porn before there were aids and then it mentions something about John Holmes. I would have left that part out. Either way I will say this is one of my favorite old time porn sites. I joined another, but the content was so horrible I could not watch it. This site is the real deal and comes recommended.
i remember porn like this when I was younger. i would still my fathers porn collection and it was in black and white and from many many years ago. joining this site has brought back a lot of good memories. The price is a little steep, but there is enough good old fashioned porn that makes it whale worth it to join. I just wonder if any of these old porn stars are still around and if they are still making dirty movies.
Thank You Thank You. I read this review once and checked out the site and never went back. I found this review again and seen that it said something about Ginger Lynn and Seka so I immediately joined. Hooray for me I am a happy boy now.
lot of older porn peoople i recognize from when I was younger. Thank you pc for adding this site.
