The landscape of adult cinema has change a lot since the shorts that are included in this collection where first conceived. Filming techniques have become slicker and more refined. Sex scenes have become more explicit and drawn out. Male and Female performers look fake now when they used to look like everyone else. Tracking down adult cinema used to be a laborious task and now it is readily available via the home video market or for those who need instant gratification they internet gives them their quick fix. One thing that I noticed that has been around since these early days of adult cinema is the money shot. As to the origin of the money shot as of this writing there is no definite answer to when it was first implemented into the world of hardcore films.Vintage Erotica anno 1960 is the fourth installment from Cult Epics in which they collect obscure fetish/sexual hard and soft core shorts most of which where shot on 16mm. There are twelve shorts included in this collection. The first short consists of a strip tease while the remaining shorts features boy-girl, girl-girl or several couples copulating with each other.

The sex in each short looks really good as the action is shown from various angles and not done from one or two set ups like many of these 16mm sex loops. Also the sex scenes are full on hard core with money shots on and all. The women in these shorts all look natural which is a huge advantage over today’s porno starlets. The sex looks more in the moment and real then today’s pornography mechanical sterile productions. Ultimately if you are a fan of classic adult cinema then you should thoroughly enjoy Vintage Erotica anno 1960.

The DVD:

All the shorts included are presented in their original 1.33:1 full frame aspect ratio. The video quality while not flawless is as good as these films will ever look especially considering their rarity.

The audio features a groovy soundtrack that perfectly complements the action on the screen. The extras are a 1940 Unreleased Bonus 16mm Film and a Photo Gallery of stills from the 1960’s. Overall If you are a fan of rare erotica then you will want to add Vintage Erotica anno 1960 to your collection right away.
