Review by Maggie

Released Dec 9, '10 , Written Dec 3, '10

Retro Raw presents classic XXX videos from the 1960s-1980s. Stars like John Holmes, Seka, Ginger Lynn, and Vanessa Del Rio can all be found inside this vintage collection. The tour is filled with boxcovers and preview pictures to give you an idea of who and what you'll see inside.

The Pros

  Entertaining retro collection.

This is a very unique collection of videos. It's a great set of movies to relive the porn of your past or simply to enjoy a time when hair was a bit bigger, clothes were funkier, and breasts were a bit less enhanced. And when was the last time you saw puppet porn? That right there is reason enough to give it a try.

  Decent quality content.

The videos play at a pretty good rate. The "high quality" wmvs play at 2000k and look fairly good for their age. They're a bit pixilated and not as sharp as today's DVDs, but overall they were large and looked nice enough considering their age.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Videos can be downloaded in two quality settings.
  • The size of the collection isn't bad. There are currently 132 full-length DVDs online, which is good for a niche site.

The Cons

  Navigation is too simple.

More browse tools are badly needed. You can browse the scenes and boxcovers in the order they were added and that's it. Categories are needed, as is the ability to search by model. A lot of members will come to a site like this looking for a specific star and it's a shame that it is so difficult, if not impossible, to find them in the collection.

  Retro content = retro quality.

It's the nature of the genre. We're not talking about cutting edge technology and HD video. The scenes can be dark and there's some graininess to the videos at times. That should be expected coming into a site like this, however.

  Infrequent updates.

It looks like they're averaging 1-2 DVDs per month recently. That's not near often. On top of that, each scene from the DVD is added individually so just because a new DVD was added today, it doesn't mean you get to see all the scenes now. You'll have to wait until they put that scene up, and since the scenes aren't dated, I have no idea how often those come up.

Minor Negatives:

  • The videos downloaded slowly. They came in at a fraction of the rate I usually get from sites. That meant some long waits for these videos. The download manager was of no help. I couldn't even browse the site while the scenes were downloading.
  • Very little info is provided about the scenes. You'll get a boxcover and brief description, and that's it. There is no info about the stars, studios, or when it was produced.
  • There are some banners in the member's area. Nearly every page has an ad or two for another site.

Bottom Line

The vintage content is great to check out, but the site could be much stronger.

If you're looking for something different, Retro Raw is worth a try. With the infrequent updates and the relative novelty of the content, I'm not sure this is a site that I could remain a member of month after month, but it is a fun place to check in every once in a while. The price is fair and the videos look nice enough, so it definitely deserves a look for a blast from the past.
