Today we take for granted just how easy it is to find what we desire by simply clicking a mouse, tapping the touchpad or screen. Not even 50 years ago the distribution of gay pornography was risky business and illegal, things would change. By the 1970’s there were a handful of studios producing the content we craved or, if you had a camcorder and ability to develop the film, you could produce your own. Even so, acquisition of such entertainment was difficult. So imagine what life was like for a man who hadn’t any idea such visual stimulation existed?
When the walls around “the love that dare not speak its name” began to fall, a whole genre of film became somewhat more readily available. The 1970’s were a golden era for the directors and the stars who we now think of as “classic”. These were the men we dreamed about, the men we wanted to be and in some ways would become. I remember seeing my first feature from this fantastic decade while living in San Francisco. I had no idea who these men were but I fell in love immediately and began searching out whatever was available. I found the films to be not only ridiculously hot but also comic, campy, tender, playful, dramatic and romantic. These pictures were breaking new ground and telling new stories in ways that had never been done before. Here at GayHotmovies.com we have a fantastic selection of these films and the best quality; we take pride in preserving and cataloging the titles we acquire.
Walk down any street anywhere; it seems to be that today’s men are sporting the mustaches and beards of yore and embracing those furry chests. Our culture has been accepting a more natural masculinity similar to that decade of sexual decadence. I dare say I’ve seen more and more than a few Al Parker clones out there lately too! So we’ve become those men in a way and you can see current content evolving with the times. Today studios are producing new plot-driven features that are reminiscent of the classics and relatable to their audience like the films of yesterday. As always, we draw inspiration from the past and I urge you to check out our database of classic content.
From 8mm reels that had to be secretly circulated and viewed to a sexual revolution that broke down barriers everywhere, classic films have been receiving a new lease on life and a brand new audience. It wasn’t really all that long ago that the only way to see these films was to go to one of the theaters (in major cities) that screened them or one would have to find other means to acquire such material either through magazines (if you could find them) or word of mouth. Luckily for you there is GayHotMovies.com where we strive to bring you the best content available and we’re just one click away.
