Men watch more vintage porn than women

We begin our visit to the retro porn world with the discovery that men enjoy retro porn more than women. By the whopping percentage of 36% according to Porn Hub.

So, what makes someone go and look at vintage porn?

Nostalgia is often cited as the primary reason we are attracted to vintage. A fondness for or sentimentality toward the past. In the days of mercenaries, traders, and navy personnel that spent many months or years on boats, nostalgia was considered to be a mental illness that interfered with one’s ability to function.

We no longer see nostalgia as a mental illness. Rather it is seen as a natural, common, and even positive emotion. At its most simple it contains a passion for feelings from the past that can be triggered by events as disparate as loneliness, disconnectedness, repeated sounds, tastes, textures, and times of the year.

So why do men like to visit vintage porn more than women?

Perhaps it is because they were the ones enjoying that porn back in the day? Perhaps it harkens back to illicit magazines, glimpses of forbidden film footage, and wandering into cinemas wearing dark glasses and overcoats. Except now these films are freely available thanks to the internet.

For us here at AJAX Books, we love vintage porn. We find it enormously interesting (porn always is) as a mini document about what was sexually stimulating in society at the time.

Plus, it’s just always sexy as hell.
