    New section

    We have a new section for newer adult movies made after 1996 now thanks to the generosity of some very good friends and fellow posters.

    I hope y'all enjoy the new material that they have to share with you.

    Among classic movie collectors, 1995 is considered to be the last year that can be used to classify a movie as "Classic". Everything produced after that is considered the "Modern" era of movies.

    True purists actually consider 1990 as the end of the Classic era, so using 1995 actually stretches the boundary a bit. However, because any movies produced prior to July 1995 are exempt from stricter records keeping requirements of performers, this is generally considered the end of the Classic movie era by most.

    No idea if this is generally agreed upon but I did read someplace that other distinguishing marks between the eras are untrimmed vs trimmed vs no pubic hair and natural breasts vs silicone implants in the early 90's. Such a line will of course be somewhat arbitrary and even a simple Classic vs Modern distinction would probably be too crude. Classic movies were more controversial in terms of various taboos (e.g incest and rape) while most of the 90's were pretty much straightforward porn, with the exception of the anal theme wildly introduced in the early 90's.
    Modern stuff sex on the other hand is much harder sex than both Classic (pre 90s) and post Classic sex. Not sure where where to draw the line between post-Classic and Modern but it seems somewhere between 2010-2015 female fashion changed from trimmed to bald pussies. And of course the Modern era, in the wake of the internet revolution, is also characterized by niche fields bringing back the taboos of the 80's again.

    I would take that line back to 2000.
    Just Over Eighteen, Bring'Um Young and many other teen niches featured virtually hairless beauties
    Lucy Lee was even shaved for a minute way back then
    It's all relative so exceptions will always exist but at the 2K mark was where I noticed the wonderful
    influx of young stars from around the world.

    Anyways, I think 1995 is a good spot to mark Classic

    I did check some titles from 2000 as well. My academic point is not that "shaved" didn't appear before 2010 but at sometime between 2010-2015 movies started consistently being shaved only.
    Yes, I did a PhD on the topic . You can read about this in my new book. 1995 makes no sense to me in terms of on screen changes. 1990 makes more sense! But I wouldn't lose any sleep over this, nevertheless, extremely, utterly, significant, dire, important matter either.

    As I said above, 1990 is considered the true end of the Classic Era because it is considered by many to be the true end of the "Golden Age of Porn". The two forums that I modded at way back when actually had this as the cutoff year for the Classic Movies sections.

    The July 1995 cutoff date was first established at PSuzy I believe and the reason was that this was the time when strict records keeping laws were enacted to establish that all performers were of legal age when the films were produced. Anything that was produced and released before that date was exempt from that law. As you can most likely surmise, this was done because of Traci mostly and several other performers that were found to have provided fake ID's for age or were never asked to provide them when they started in films. If you look at the beginning of many films available, you may see that exemption notice at the beginning of the film. Records keeping was haphazard and almost non existent in most cases before 1995 so it was a case of "maybe they're legal, but maybe not" but you can continue to sell them without the actual verification.

    When B set up this forum, he asked if I wanted to set the cutoff time to be the same time as PSuzy. I went with that because it made the most sense even though it's not the true dividing line between Classic and Modern movies.


    My book comes out next week, be sure to buy it when it hits the shelves because I could use the extra money

    I agree the "Golden Age' ended around 1990. Porn movies became something I don't bother to watch after 1995.

    Not sure why. My age probably, as you tend to like what you grew up with; the proliferation of anal into mainstream which I don't care for personally, and the change into formulaic 'bitch gets fucked' plots where performers do the same positions over and over. Porn somehow lost it's 'soul' along the way.

    Anyway we're gratified by the advent of you folks - I've downloaded several films already which I didn't have and was thrilled to see.

    Thank You Jenny, QWS, Lagerlout, kogi and all who post these here, your work and effort is appreciated!
