My Journey of Uploading Gay Erotic Media | Downloads 📥 | Gallery 📷 | Movie Links 📽️
I thought it would be interesting to share my thoughts on content and also to offer guidance as to how to appreciate the rich history these publications hold. I appreciate the extra value of uploading full issues. Content consists of not only the beautiful pictorials. but also the other material in these publications. There were tons of articles, features, media reviews, and advertising to fill up the pages. To look back at what was written about, photographed, and illustrated over the course of many years is of particular interest to me. To learn to appreciate what it was like over time is what I mean by it's value and rich history. So, even though I focus on the pictorials as significant content, I do provide the table of contents as a guide to the full issues and this note to say there is a lot of stuff in these magazines that should be of value and interest to everyone. I hope you enjoy it all too. I also add all the Model Pictorial Images and Erotic Art Excerpts to the Gallery in Magazine Title Albums. I felt this added value. I hope this further helps you all to appreciate the Content. It is just another method of presenting it. I recently embarked on an expanded journey by starting to watch Movies advertised in these publications and sharing information about them as I go along. I hope you enjoy seeing Print come to life on Film as much as I do. Please follow my blog to see which images / files I upload and other Media I share.
Thank you for stopping by. 🙂 Eric 😍
tourist said: Can't speak for others, but I definitely enjoy looking through the entire magazines -- whether for features (like the Men sex surveys) or the ads, which show a progression of technological availability over the decades (phone sex services to websites -- stopping short of streaming because that, of course, is what put the magazines out of business). It's all a great treat, and thanks again for providing it.
JackFTwist said: I agree completely. Although I never used any of the phone-sex services (honest!), the ads were usually hot. The ones that used a photo of one of the contemporary porn stars were especially amusing, as if you’d actually get to have phone sex with that performer. (Although I’m sure the guys on the other end of phone line would often claim that’s who they were, in the interest of keeping callers on the line for longer periods — and higher total charges.) It’s also interesting to see the prices of the older magazines, films, and VCR tapes, especially when you consider what that price would be in today’s dollars, adjusted for inflation. Falcon Studios VCR tapes in 2000 could cost in the $60 range, which would be nearly $90 in today’s dollars. By comparison, today’s newly released Falcon Studios HD videos list for about $35 — a little more than half the price of the old VCR tapes — but their video quality is much higher (and they’re often on sale at significant discounts). Many of the magazines that were racier than “Men,” “Freshmen,” etc., and contained explicit photos of scenes from porn videos often sold in the $15—$20 range in 2000. Today’s equivalent price would be in the $22—$30 range. Talk about sticker shock! In addition, I also enjoyed the 2 or 3 erotic stories that each issue contained. Although they varied widely in quality, they were usually much, much better than the gay erotica that was available online. Thanks for putting in the unimaginable effort to organize and upload this goldmine in such an accessible collection.
