Historic Erotica Review

Review: April 28, 2015, by Steve
Historic Erotica

Historic Erotica is a collection of vintage movies and photos that, in some cases, go back over 100 years! Now that's what we call vintage! Classic erotica here mixed with critically acclaimed porn movies and rare material that you may never have seen before, this site has built a rare collection that will have those of you who are interested in the history of porn surely coming back for more!

Navigating this site wasn't as easy as it should have been. The content is categorised very vaguely and one of the sections just seems to take you to a collection of DVDs, most of which do not seem to have any connection to this site at all in that they are not retro. There is hardly any information with the galleries and videos here, meaning you get no background here. On a site like this, information like that really should be a must-see.

The videos are often available for streaming and downloading but there also seemed to be some videos that were only available for streaming. The quality of the videos varied somewhat to say the least but they were generally of a reasonable quality. The photo sets were again of variable quality. All of these sets were available to download to a ZIP file, however.

There is obviously a whole history of pornography out there that many of us will never get to see, so when a site like HistoricErotica.com comes along I get quite excited at the prospect of seeing something 'new' - if you know what I mean! But my feeling is that this site is a missed opportunity, instead relying on public domain photos and videos that have been used on so many other such sites before.

And with updates having now seemingly stopped on this site, it does seem as though a further opportunity has been lost. There is still some interesting stuff to see on this site, however, and it was interesting that they really did focus mostly on genuinely vintage stuff rather than a load of porn VHS uploads from the 1980s and 1990s. Plus with the option of a week long membership made available to us, it might still be worth looking at.

Amount of content: 101 videos and 75 photo sets

Exclusive content: No
Max video resolution: 720x5760px

It's definitely a good thing that they're offering week long memberships on this site because they really do make this a site well worth seeing now. Without it, HistoricErotica.com wouldn't have enough content behind it to be worth the trouble. There are definitely some interesting things to be had on this site if you are interested in retro and vintage porn, and a selection of bonus DVDs makes it more palatable.
