I often hark back to the good old days of porn and use the word ‘retro’ quite a bit
when describing new sites that retain the halcyon atmosphere. Usually its because
a particular style or design reminds me of this bygone era, but here, ‘retro’ is
totally apt because this site is a homage to the late and great stars of pornography
spanning the last forty years. XXX actors may have come and gone however many still
linger in our memories. Who could forget moustacheod John Holmes and his gigantic
cock or the alluring sex machine that once was Linda Lovelace? Hey, I admit it, I’d
forgotten about sweet innocent looking blonde nymphette Seka… wow this really is
a trip down memory fucking lane, just turn off at nostalgia boulevard and you’ll
be there… welcome to PornstarLegends.com.
Okay I may gush a bit, but its all warranted. It’s a sweet offering for sure. Readers
under the age of 30 may struggle to understand just how important some of these porn
stars were to us oldies. They certainly pushed boundaries and took huge personal
risks to make ’adult’ what it is today. Obscenity laws were strict back then and
’actors’ were often embroiled in lawsuits and arrested for their XXX associations.
For some, it was an art form, for others a means of escape from some backwater shit
hole - some were coerced - promised large wedges of cash for a career in debauchery,
only to end up getting screwed in more ways than one!
Its safe to say that there are some genuine legends at this site - some have retired
of passed over to the other side but many are still active or semi retired such as
Canyon, Savannah, Tracey Adams, Amber Lynn, Aja, Samantha Strong, Chasey Lain, Ona
Zee, Victoria Paris, Leanna Foxxx, JR Carrington, Hyapatia Lee, Paula Price, Vanessa
del Rio, Deidre Holland, Barbara Dare, Sharon Mitchell, Lynn LeMay, Trinity Loren,
Jeanna Fine, Ashlyn Gere, PJ Sparxxx, Kaitlyn Ashley, Tiffany Mynx, Jenna Jameson,
Jill Kelly plus guys like Peter North and the undisputed king of porn Ron Jeremy.
In my opinion, the 1970’s through to the mid 80’s was the glamour heyday and this
is well represented in the photo section. There really are some beautiful lingerie
sets to drool over and plenty of nice natural pussy sporting shock, horror… ‘pubes’.
Big bouffant hairdos and military style shoulder pads add to the ‘Dynasty’ ambience.
Beneath these outrageous outfits are vibrantly coloured stockings, garters and bras,
oh yeah sexy shit indeed! Photos can be downloaded in zip files or viewed in a great
It’ll also come as no surprise to find most of the movie content is simply a straight
transfer from video cassette, so it has an authentic feel - a bit tired and often
with a pink hue but that is just plain fucking obvious - remember folks this stuff
was shot when the media format war was not DVD vs. Blu-ray more VHS vs. Betamax and
8mm film was still a viable medium!
Personally, I think the site design is great. Plenty of search options plus niche
categories and a decent looking interface, with no nonsense menu headings makes this
a surfing winner. Everything is laid out logically and with great aplomb so you’ll
be able to go back in time and find all your old favourites in a breeze.
