It’s so great to travel again and share my wisdom with the rest of you, guys. For today’s masterpiece, i went into the depths of my girlfriend’s asshole, then my mind, and dug out a few things. First, a missing condom that must’ve been left out there by her ex and as far as my knowledge goes, the greatest or super-famous movies porn movies from all the decades. We’ll start with the 70s since this the library is as vast as ocean.

However, your mind must be racing already, brainstorming all the different places to stream or download suggested titles. I won’t pick favorites but in addition to our free vintage porn sites list, there’s also random adult tubes which too (sometimes) offer full-length films.

22The Story of Joanna (1975)

It’s easy to ignore the first of many 70s porn films that we will mention, but you’d be fool do to so and let me explain why. Despite a somewhat bizarre pacing and uninteresting scenarios, you’ll find a true masterpiece in “The Story of Joanna”. If you don’t feel like watching an hour of this porn classic, tune to the hardcore fucking of Graham and Colt. Not only is it considered as one of the all-time greatest fucks of all time, but we do approve of it too.

By the way, those who want something else than hardcore porn will also find a pussy shave scene near the end of the film. Just a random dude shaving a beautiful hairy pussy.

21Kansas City Trucking Co. (1976) (Gay)

Some will skip gay scenes while others will watch this and nothing else. The good news is that “Kansas City Trucking Co.” is only the first of three films. These all are known as the “Working Man Trilogy”, so have fun streaming.

The name already tells you all about its plot which is truckers heavy. Male orgies, hot gay pornstars, and lots of heavy loads.

20Pink Narcissus (1971) (Gay)

Fine, this is close to the final of non-straight porn movies. Produced for the niche market with a budget of $27,000, the “Pink Narcissus” was shot on an 8 mm film and features quite a journey. The artistic implementation by the gay porn god himself, James Bidgood, is undeniable.

It took them seven years to film everything in a tiny New York apartment, so as far as amateur gay porn goes, this can’t get much better. And even then, this 70s film wasn’t even released with a permission from the director, which was “Anonymous” before.

Length: 71 minutes

19The Other Side of Aspen (1978) (Gay)

Despite a short length, this gay porn masterpiece is worth a look. In fact, it “commercialized” the genre and helped gay porn to prosper. Yes, people realized that there’s an audience and you too can profit from scenes featuring male pornstars only.

By the way, “The Other Side of Aspen” has popularized the macho fantasy, which then grew into a whole new genre and continued to be the “key” element for successful porn film in the 70s and 80s. So, if ever wanted to know why your grandfather is so addicted to this term, it’s because of this film. Yeah, he likely rented it and fantasized about large thick cocks entering unknown territories.

18Spirit of Seventy Sex (1976)

When you get Holmes himself to star in your porn movie, it will already be good by default. This male performer has fucked thousands of sluts and is credited in close to 600 movies. It was released in Chicago and is more of a parody than anything else.

If casual 70s porn bored you to death, then maybe the plot of 70s movie will help to bring back the spark in your heart. This film aims to give you a good look at the sex lives of American’s founding fathers including George Washington, Benjamin Franking, whatever. Some hate the casual sex while others love the kinky idea.

17Candy Strippers (1978)

This movie has won multiple best movie awards back in the 70s and even has five sequels. Nasty nurses deleted or edited scenes with the elements of fisting, and so much more.

But what does the candy stripper term even mean? It refers to the hospital volumeters of the 1970s who wore clothes that looked just like the delicious stick candy.

16Maraschino Cherry (1978)

With a light plot and humorous talk, “Maraschino Cherry” blends hardcore with comedy. This is Radley’s final hardcore film, so consider a “must watch”. This guy is featured in our top 20 multiple times and for many good reasons. By the way, Radley lived a good life and died at the age of 88, so no overdose or another sad story.

Yes, the plot, let’s talk about it! Maraschino Cherry is a hot owner of the luxury agency that provides sexual favors. Just so it happens, she needs to pass the knowledge to other people and that’s when her sister Penny Cherry comes to join the fun. They chat, talk, laugh, and drop a lot of witty quotes.

15Naked Came the Stranger (1975)

Based on the fake 1969 novel “Naked Came the Stranger”, this erotic film features chivalry, masturbation, blowjobs from queens and princesses, weird females with hats as well as other things. It even introduced the classic hot office secretary fantasy, which is like the default plot for many porn films of the 21st century.

Solid sex scenes, cool New York imagery, blowjobs on a bus, even some black and white shots in the middle of a film. The only thing that I didn’t like here was the inverse 69 sex scene and that (by default) means starring at the guy’s asshole 95% of the time, not my choice.

14The Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann (1974)

Dozens of amazing pornstars, a hall of fame award, superior acting, even a plot. All these factors contributed to the success of this 70s hardcore porn film. Also, it helps to have a plot about private detectives, which means a starting of a new fantasy for many.

People of the 1970s might not have even heard of the term “voyeurism”, but it all changed after the release. Deep throat blowjobs, cumshots, facials, lesbian sex, straight pussy licking, etc. No, these acts weren’t exactly filmed from the perspective of a detective, but it’s the whole plot that helped with the fantasies.

Length: 83 minutes

13The Tale of Tiffany Lust (1979)

Also known as “Body Lust (1981)”, the Radley Metzger directed film features a plot about a depressed housewife Tiffany. She wants to spice things up and enhance the sex life hence a suggestion from a friend. In short, there’s a radio show where people can fuck in front of a live audience, which is hot.

Many critics praised The Tale of Tiffany Lust for its cinematography, screenplay, and the overall artistic take. Thanks to many cool angles, this film gives you a boner like no other. By the way, when I speak of live audience, I mean real people sitting and watching everyone fuck. My favorite camera angle is of Lindsay getting fucked in the ass while standing near the table, it’s absolutely hot and for some reason, rarely seen today.

Length: 96 minutes

12The Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976)

With multiple locations showing the beautiful Paris, New York, even Rome, and so on, this 70s release (obviously) had a high budget, and it shows. Furthermore, remastered 35mm copies exist with even greater quality, so this one is not only a treat as in terms of influence, but to your eyes.

It doesn’t take long, however, for the stunning scenery to change and this is when the good parts start. Lots of random talk before the first scenes of a blowjob, then a cumshot, colorful dildos, and double blowjob ideas are introduced. You should enjoy the plot too which is of a random sexologist who tries to turn a slut into some sex monster. The pornstars here are some of the most beautiful, by the way.

Length: 86 minutes

11The Image (1975)

Released in French and English languages, “The Image” is a drama full of kinky BDSM elements. If you’re familiar with the whole “intellectual” part and have read like thousands of books, then yes, you should’ve had already experience parts of this 70s classic. It’s based on the erotic novel by the same name (“The Image”), which was written by Jean de Berg in 1956.

You might think that people didn’t have many fetishes in the 1970s, but “The Image” Features piss porn, oral, bondage, and all the other tools that you have in your basement.

Length: 89 minutes

Director: Radley Metzger

10Resurrection of Eve (1973)

With less sex and more politics than the biggest 70s hit by the same two guys (“Behind the Green Door”, this movie discusses everything. I don’t know if they’ve suddenly decided to be more creative or to use the power of porn to give awareness to important issues, but “Resurrection of Eve” is heavy on sexual politics. Still has the same pornstar though and shows interracial porn.

But why is it famous at all? Like, there are thousands of 70s porn movies. Well, you can get publicity either through good script or a shocking factor and this went for the latter. Okay, we won’t beat around the bush anymore, it featured gay oral sex.

Length: 85 minutes

Directors: Artie Mitchell, Jim Mitchell
Writers: Jon Fontana, Artie Mitchell

Pornstars:
Marilyn Chambers

9Mona the Virgin Nymph (1970)

With casual fucking and clips of no penetration, the 1970s film “Mona” inspired the legendary “Deep Throat”, so its significance is here. Also, the producer of “Mona” went to do another blockbuster which is too featured here (“Alice in the Wonderland”). Overall, a talented team but since it was early 1970s, the writers and vintage pornstars listed below were never credited. Still, at least there is not much “music soundtrack” during the intimate moments unlike in the early era.

The plot is full of teases and then the oral orgy at the end. Mona says that she can’t fuck before the marriage so early scenes feature nothing but oral sex and this, of course, doesn’t end well. I mean, she turns into a slut and proceeds to suck dick of everyone and anyone.

Length: 71 minutes

Directors: Tony Bucci, Howard Ziehm
Writer: Bucky Searles

Susan Stewart
Fifi Watson

8The Cheerleaders (1973)

Prior its release, the British have renamed this movie to “The 18 Year Old Schoolgirls”, in case you’re having trouble finding it in your region. Now, the whole porn industry was starting to experiment with more extensive plots in the late 70s, so don’t expect much here. Here, “The Cheerleaders” toy with the comedic value hence a “non-sensical” script. To summarize everything what happens here, there’s a cheerleader team who attempts to “tire” the opponents by fucking them. Well, I can’t argue with the opportunity or the logic here.

As for finances, “The Cheerleaders” had a budget of $153,000 (or $968,820 in today’s value) and made close to $2.5 million in rentals which is $15,830,405 in 2022 money.

Length: 82 minutes

Kimberly Hyde

7Score (1974)

With a stunning scenery, the Yugoslavian erotic film by Radley Metzger broke the ground with its iconic script and cast. Unlike many amateur films, “Score” had a high budget and a lot of praising from the critics. It’s loosely based on some “close to Broadway” stage play where a European couple competes with one another. Who can fuck more women and who can seduce more men? That’s how you get into the swinger games while the main “show” lasts for a full night.

Well, there’s that and two separate releases, one for softcore and another for uncut and uncensored hardcore release. The hardcore cut was even released on Blu-ray.

Length: 91 minutes

Director: Radley Metzger
Writers: Jerry Douglas

Pornstars:
Claire Wilbur
Calvin Culver
Lynn Lowry
Gerald Grant
Carl Parker

6Flesh Gordon (1974)

Some of the best 70s porn movies despite now being available for free on many platforms, did cost money. I mean, that’s not a secret. Therefore, unlike early attempts at the 30s porn or even earlier, the larger budgets could be incorporated. While not the largest of them all, the “Flesh Gordon” film had a massive (for the time) budget of $470,000 or $2,680,315 in 2022 money. That’s a cum load of money and its earnings are even more impressive, $5.3 million in 1974 or over $30 million in today’s money.

The plot should be familiar to the Universal Picture’s fans since it’s one of those porn movie parodies mimicking the sci-fi series Flash Gordon (1936).

Length: 78 to 90 minutes

Directors: Michael Benveniste, Howard Ziehm
Writer: Michael Benveniste

5The Devil in Miss Jones (1973)

Despite a one person writing the whole thing, this pornographic film of the 70s received so many sequels that even the American Pie producers are jealous. There was “The Devil in Miss Jones” 2 to 6, followed by “The New Devil in Miss Jones” and “The Devil in Miss Jones: The Resurrection”. The last two are part of the Vivid Entertainment production company which we do feature in our top porn studios list too.

Interestingly enough, it wasn’t as “significant” in terms of popularizing the porn culture as iconic 70s films, but it did beat many of those by revenue. It was like the 10th most successful movie of the 1973 including mainstream releases. The budget isn’t known but those guys made a cool $15 million in gross rental office or $78,386,988 in today’s money.

4Caligula (1979)

Just before the 80s porn movies have started lining up, legendary Tinto Brass released a stunning historical drama that toyed with the idea of a Roman Emperor named Caligula. I do like only the softcore version though and Caligula did get into a lot of trouble, even faced bans for its graphic sexual content. Tinto Brass, by the way, said that the film was supposed to be anti-erotic and he wanted to feature more gore than sex hence the controversy.

You’ll either love it or hate but do know that the uncut version remains banned in a few countries. Also, let that be a lesson, don’t mix BDSM or historic films with porn, either show violent war movies that are fine with everyone or hardcore porn, just never both.

Length: 78 to 90 minutes

Directors: Tinto Brass, Bob Guccione, Giancarlo Lui
Writers: Tinto Brass, Malcolm McDowell, Bob Guccione

Pornstars:
Malcolm McDowell
Teresa Ann Savoy
Helen Mirren
Peter O’Toole
John Gielgud

3Alice in Wonderland (1976)

Everyone but the insane hate musicals, so the only way for us, casual people to enjoy musicals is by blending the said genre with comedy or erotic acts. The 1970s film by Bud Townsend does both. It’s another huge that has made millions. The suggested Alice in Wonderland budget was only $500,000 and their sales go close to $100 million.

There are two releases, so you can pick either the original (softcore) release or Osco re-edited film with penetration, oral, and all the expected acts in any porn movie. Expect the Queen of Hearts, lesbian fantasies, random cock sucking, foursomes, and (as per plot) an orgasm so strong that it incapacitates her. I mean, just writing about it feels like we’re back to the today’s ridiculous ideas from the biggest adult studios.

Here’s a fun fact: due to its name, the studio releasing this porn movie was “forced” to include a label saying that this is not the fairy tale that everyone knows, but something else instead.

Length: 72 minutes

Director: Bud Townsend
Writer: Bucky Searles

Kristine De Bell
Larry Gelman
Alan Novak
Terri Hall
Jason Williams

2Behind the Green Door (1972)

Let’s take $60,000 and turn it into $50 million, that’s what two brothers behind the successful porn movie did. Just like the best 70s porn film that you will see in the first place, “Behind the Green Door” is considered as one of the major boosters for the “Golden Age of Porn” trend. Marilyn Chambers is the key 70s to 80s pornstar here who, despite a long running time, didn’t say a word. By the way, she wasn’t even known at that point, so imagine what a tremendous boost of public fame did to her earnings potential.

While not confirmed due to many unknown releases, this film is often considered to be among the first to show interracial porn between two straight people. Also, it did reach the mass audience, which was huge and rarely seen in the 1970s. Other sex scenes include lesbian gangbang hardcore with close to a dozen other women. Oh, and the first regular scene has shown Marilyn fucking the African American boxer who licked her pussy for a whole academic hour which is 45-minutes.

Length: 72 minutes

Directors: Artie Mitchell, Jim Mitchell
Writer: Elliot Wax

1Deep Throat (1972)

The 1972 American film directed by Gerar Damiano was one of the biggest sensations of the century. It even has a full Wikipedia page. It’s often credited to being one of the very first films to have characters and a plot. No, not with the pizza guys, but still, something interesting. By the way, Deep Throat even helped the term “porno chic” or “Golden Age of Porn” to gain momentum, not an easy feat in a sex suppressed society.

Despite a small budget of $30,033 or $202,002 today (that’s the year 2022), Deep Throat earned millions in the first two months followed by all-time earnings estimate of $600 million or over $4 billion in today’s money.

There’s also a controversy regarding Linda Lovelace, the main pornstar who said that she was almost forced to have sex while Deep Throat crew members denied the charge. There was even Deep Throat Part II with Linda as well, so who knows who is right or wrong. Sadly, she passed away at the age of 53 due to injuries related to the second car accident. The first car accident already left Linda hepatitis positive after the blood transfusion.

Length: 61 minutes

Sam has been working in the adult business since 1997, starting from the bottom of the barrel as the director's assistant, thinking of transitioning to male performer only to resume behind the scenes work, which was the most rewarding creativity wise. As of the 2010s, Sam has been covering top pornstars and best porn sites. Everything I ever say is either a fiction or a joke. Anyway, sharing is caring and there is nothing like helping guys discover hidden talents or porn networks that deserve their attention.
