#1. Brazzers
#2. RealityKings
#3. TrueAmateurs

Having finished many other decades, it’s about time we grab a pot of lube and insert ourselves into the tight holes of the 1980s porn. This decade labeled the end of “good old days” and spawned hundreds of 80s pornstars including some that are still active. All the babes that were once just random females now had more fans than obscure celebrities.

Thanks to cheap videotapes, VHS stores, and cheap workforce, everyone could become a porn producer. If the decade of 70s porn had a few solid movies and a two hundred unknown amateur tapes, the 80s multiplied those numbers fiftyfold.

Where to even find these 80s classics? Many of the suggested DVDs can be bought at any decent store, be it Amazon or something more discrete like AdultEmpire.

23Surrender in Paradise (1985)

What if you were trapped in an island after a massive storm? Wait, wasn’t that a plot of Robinson Crusoe? Exactly! And people ate that novel like chocolate covered raisins. This 1980s porn flick is similar except it was a plane crash and there’s just one guy. Oh, yes, as well as close to a dozen of sex thirsty females with Ginger Lynn Allen leading the cast.

I wonder how that will end? Plenty of good looking pornstars as well as sceneries make it a fine evening experience.

Length: 87 minutes

22Pretty Peaches 3: The Quest (1989)

Third time’s the charm or so they claim. What started as a pornographic comedy in 1978 ended up in the late 80s with some heavy scripts. Those were later edited because lesbians giving enemas in public places were too much, not to mention a few other things. The final epitome of this trilogy dialed down on nonsense content and included males, females, and nuns.

Length: 89 minutes

Director: Alex de Renzy
Writer: David I. Frazer

Pornstars:

Lynn LeMay
Tracey Adams
Victoria Paris
Priscilla Love
Rachel Ryan
Jamie Gillis
Marc Wallice

21Nightshift Nurses (1988)

Following doctor’s advice is crucial for your wellbeing but watch out for misunderstandings. When D.J. Cone (a female redhead with incredible sucking skills) is told to take a thermometer from behind, things end up differently.

Pornstars often end up directing films later in their lifetime and that’s exactly what happened with John Leslie. This guy has close to 30 awards as a performer and as a director. Yes, he did receive an award for Nightshift Nurses too. It was for the best directed adult film that one should not miss.

Length: 89 minutes

Director: John Leslie
Writers: Jim Holliday, John Leslie

Pornstars:

Peter North
John Leslie
Lynn Francis
Joey Silvera
Bionca
D.J. Cone
Dana Dylan
Keisha
Lois Ayres
Sheena Horne
Siobhan Hunter

20Peeping Tom (1987)

Multiple movies exist with the same name but only 1980s flick stars Nina Hartley. It was nominated for having the best adult actresses and the best sex scene. Which one? I feel like telling you that would ruin the rest of experience. Everybody likes to watch, right? That’s the idea.

Still, if you insist on knowing because your life is far too chaotic to watch hours of porn, look for one with Nina Hartley and Buck Adams.

Length: 86 minutes

Director: Gary Graver
Writer: Gary Graver

Pornstars:

Kimberly Carson
Honey Wilder
Kristara Barrington
Leslie Winston
Shanna McCullough
Nina Hartley
Sheri St. Clair
Tracey Adams

19Debbie Duz Dishes (1986)

Spanning three sequels, Debbie Duz Dishes is among the funniest 80s porn movies. The pure silliness of this film convinced us to add it to this top 20. I’ll tell you about the plot without revealing the catch first. A housewife as horny as Johnny Bravo has nothing else to do, so she starts fucking herself with all the crazy household items or visitors. Be it an old vacuum cleaner, exorcist, or an unsuspecting salesman.

But what makes this movie a true legend is the main pornstar. She’s no other than Nina Hartley, portraying all the roles perfectly.

Length: 88 minutes

Director: Bob Vosse
Writer: John Finegold

Pornstars:

Nina Hartley
Keli Richards
Jerry Butler
Billy Dee
Alexis Greco
Mike Horner
Herschel Savage
Jon Martin
Roger Scorpio
Damon Christian

18Centurians of Rome (1981)

Should we warn you upfront that this is a gay film? It had one of the most impressive budgets at the time for a gay film, which was $100,000. That’s $316,286 in today’s (2022) money! However, if rumors are to be believed, this money came from a $2 million theft! This is how it got famous, by the way.

Lots of gay scenes with a gladiator theme, lots of ideas about slavery, and guys with beards.

Length: 83 minutes

Director: John Christopher
Writer: Timothy Michaels, George Bosque

Pornstars:

Adam De Haven
Ed Wiley
Eric Ryan
George Payne
Giuseppe Welch
David Hadkey
Roy Garrett
John Kovacs
Michael Flent
Ryder Jones as Bath Slave
Scorpio

17Black Throat (1985)

Bring the interracial babes into the picture, we say! The scenes might not be as “shocking” as watching interracial pornstars in the vintage era films, but you should watch this one to orgasm, not to be shocked. There are two versions, one of which was uncut and of 66 minutes long. Look for this one.

With eight different scenes featuring Traci Lords and Peter North, of course, this is a good one. Black Throat porn film borrowed its name from the famous 70s film “Deep Throat”, which we also reviewed.

Length: 66 minutes

Director: Gregory Dark
Writer: Johnny Jump-Up

Pornstars:

Traci Lords
Peter North
Sahara
Jack Baker
Erica Boyer
Marc Wallice
Steve Powers
Lady Stephanie
Craig Roberts
Purple Passion
Kevin James
Tony Martino
Christy Canyon

16Fallen Angels (1985)

Porn documentaries are a hit or miss but that’s because they tell a story that is already up there. Like covering previously popular pornstars or talking about the experiences of some sluts from the 70s. This 1980s release is different because it follows three aspiring hardcore porn “actresses”.

There, behind the scenes cuts revealed “the truth” behind many adult films. From humiliation and degradation to wins or disappointments. Oh, and the “cast” featured wildly popular names too.

Length: 85 minutes

Director: Gregory Dark
Writer: Gregory Dark

Pornstars:

Kristara Barrington
Tom Byron
Eric Edwards
Ron Jeremy
Traci Lords
Lisa Lake
Hal Freeman

15Private Teacher (1983)

We just hope that you to have had an experience of many past generations where they felt strongly about one of their teachers. Obviously, we don’t mean strong opinions about their way of teaching. If you wanted to lose your virginity to a teacher and that was your fantasy back then, the 1983 release of Private Teacher should bring back those memories.

Thankfully, there’s catch because those people did end up having sex with Kay Parker in the lead role. She did such a phenomenal job that you cannot ignore this 80s release any longer.

Length: 85 minutes

Director: Gary Graver
Writers: Gary Graver

Pornstars:

Honey Wilder
Kay Parker
Laurie Smith
Joanna Storm
Tom Byron
Janey Robbins
Paul Thomas

14Every Woman Has a Fantasy 2 (1986)

Technically, it’s two movies because most DVDs feature the original film as well as sequel with Nina Hartley. Some will claim that this release is as rando mas many of the 80s flicks while others will swear by this porn movie. We’ll not place it up there in the top 10, but if you feel adventurous, go ahead, test the waters.

If you want plot details, there’s this guy who wants to know about untold female erotic fantasies and dreams.

Length: 70 minutes

Director: Edwin Brown
Writers: Summer Brown, Edwin Brown

Pornstars:

Nina Hartley
Lisa Lake
Rachel Ashley
Lois Ayres
Martina Brandt
John Leslie
Kari Fox
Paul Thomas
Kelli Richards

13Dream Girls (1986)

From intense blowjobs with a lot of bushes to lesbian experiences and butthole licking, Dream Girls is all those things. No, wait, this and much more. In six scenes ranging from 1 to 14 minutes, you experience some of the super pornstars of the 1980s.

It’s slightly different from many of the hardcore porn films because you get this feel of being intimate with them. What’s the secret? The film utilized a lot of up-close angles; almost everything is zoomed-in by 150% or so, and it’s for the better minus the horny faces of dudes. My favorite clip featured a heavy gym workout sex scene.

Length: 69 minutes

Director: Edwin Durell
Writer: Edwin Durell

Pornstars:

Amber Lynn
Nina Hartley
Kristara Barrington
Sahara
Candie Evans
Taija Ray
Melissa Melendez
Alexis Greco
Paula Labelle

12The Chameleon (1989)

Nearing the end of the 80s-decade, John Leslie produced another classic with none other than Tori Welles. She is the main protagonist of this film and is portrayed as female with martial problems. As porn has taught us, only sex and more blowjobs can fix bad marriage!

But wait, this is no random nonsense script. Diana (Tori Welles) can transform into any woman and fuck anyone. How’s that for a new layer of twists?

Length: 85 minutes

Director: John Leslie
Writers: John Leslie, Nick Hunter

Pornstars:

Peter North
Joey Silvera
Tom Byron
Debi Diamond
Tori Welles
Selena Steele
Victoria Paris
Buck Adams
Ray Victory
April West
Lynn Francis
Scott Irish
Alexander Horn

11The Grafenberg Spot (1985)

Like watching the all-star football watch, The Grafenberg Spot has its ups and downs. However, with a cast as rich as this one, it’s impossible to not get aroused at some point. Nina Hartley might’ve been known by today’s generation as the best “how to make female squirt” teacher of the 80s, 90s, and 2000s, but she did regular porn too.

The plot is dear to Nina’s heart and involves a couple who needs help findind a G-Spot.

Length: 80 minutes

Director: Artie Mitchell
Writer: Artie Mitchell

Pornstars:

Ginger Lynn
Harry Reems
Annette Haven
John Holmes
Traci Lords
Rick Savage
Amber Lynn
Lili Marlene
Nina Hartley
Raven
Susie Bright

10Café Flesh (1982)

People are talking about doom and gloom all the time, so why not bring it to the world of porn? The 1982 film with hall of fame badges on its shoulders featured a sci-fi post-apocalyptic plot. It didn’t take itself too seriously, thankfully, and ended up drawing everyone into its universe.

The idea is bizarre, but everything makes sense in porn. After a nuclear blast, close to 100% of all survivors become extremely ill if they fuck except for a few lucky ones. Those who can, are “forced” to run a theatrical show full of hardcore fun.

Length: 74 minutes

Directors: Stephen Sayadian, Mark S. Esposito
Writers: Jerry Stahl, Stephen Sayadian

Pornstars:

Andy Nichols
Paul McGibboney
Michelle Bauer

9The Seduction of Cindy (1980)

Starring Ron Jeremy and the 1980s porn sensation Seka as Cindy, this film is good enough for the history classes. No, it doesn’t take place in the Middle Ages or Texas. Pornographic history, that’s the term! Seka was one of the most successful, highly sought out pornstars and once you add other key names, it becomes the 80s classic with superstars.

Depending on which DVD you buy, there could be just one movie of 1 hour and 20 minutes long or a combination of two. Stores often sell it in sets with “Tara, Tara, Tara, Tara”, making the whole DVD length 2 hours and 28 minutes.

Length: 80 minutes

Director: Leonard Kirtman
Writer: Unknown

Pornstars:

Seka
Jerome Carter
Veronica Hart
Jamie Gillis
Samantha Fox
Bobby Astyr
Serena
Ron Jeremy
Christie Ford
Merie Michaels

8Nightdreams (1981)

After the hype of David Lynch’s Eraserhead has dialed down, people were looking for porn movies that captured a similar vibe. The $60,000 dollar budget film Nightdreams combined horror and pornographic elements into a tale that was filmed in Hell. Yes, the 1980s started with people making movies that were showing people fuck in Hell. It didn’t blow everyone’s minds, but still had attracted its audience.

While they didn’t make a lot of movies compared to the most popular 80s porn films, Nightdreams did make profit. It was big enough for Playboy magazine to mention it as well. If you need weird, bizarre, unique, and random porn, this is the one to watch.

Length: 78 minutes

Director: Francis Delia
Writers: Jerry Stahl, Stephen Sayadian

Pornstars:

Dorothy LeMay
Loni Sanders
Kevin James
Fast Steppin
Paul Berthell
Ken Starbuck
Jacqueline Lorians
Andy Nichols
Michelle Bauer

7Reel People (1984)

It’s not the world’s greatest 80s porn movie, but you should still watch it for the novelty of it! In fact, we rate it favorably for inventing a brand-new genre of porn. Yes, people weren’t done creating and recreating stuff even in the middle of the 1980s. Although honestly, they didn’t have that much time considering the 60s is when everyone got to experience hardcore sex.

Reel People is credited as the first mainstream film in history to feature professional pornstars banging amateurs. Watching it back in the day felt like streaming Death Note for the first time, it was magical.

Length: 82 minutes

Director: Anthony Spinelli
Writer: Anthony Spinelli

Pornstars:

Richard Pacheco
Juliet Anderson
John Leslie
Paul Thomas

6New Wave Hookers (1984)

This movie invented a whole new genre of porn! Yes, in the middle of the 1980s people weren’t done experimenting with adult films. The alt or alternative porn wasn’t even a concept before up until 1984. It ditched traditional vintage pornstars and went for wild women. Those were goth babes with tattoos, ravers, random body modifications, you name it.

The original film had Traci Lords but then was re-edited when people found out that she was under 18. The cover was also replaced with that of Ginger Lynn, and it was all for the better. New Wave Hookers is often credited as one of the greatest porn films of all time. The final scene featured almost all pornstars too!

Length: 75 minutes

Director: Gregory Dark
Writers: Gregory Dark, Platinum Fire

Pornstars:

Desiree Lane
Jamie Gillis
Steve Powers
Brooke Field
Kimberly Carson
Peter North

5Taboo (1980)

Man, if you thought that “Lord of the Rings” or “Star Wars” has too man sequels already, wait till you hear about Taboo. A total of 23 different movies have been produced in the series with the last one being in 2007.

Scoring awards for the best adult tape, Taboo featured fauxcest scenes, as simple as that. Some claimed those were far too unrealistic, but the movie was already at the final stop of the hype train and people boarded in waves. No bad movie has that many sequels, so people did find value in it, even if they didn’t admit that in public.

Length: 86 minutes

Director: Kirdy Stevens
Writer: Helene Terrie

Pornstars:

Kay Parker
Dorothy LeMay
Tawny Pearl
Holly McCall
Mike Ranger
Miko Yani
Milton Ingley
Juliet Anderson
Lee LeMay
Turk Lyon

4Insatiable (1980)

With four sex scenes and a sequel under the same name, Insatiable featured one of the hardcore film legends, Marilyn Chambers. Yes, the same pornstar from the 1972 film “Behind the Green Door”. However, that’s not enough, right? I know that you’re already waiting in anticipation to figure out why exactly should one add Insatiable to their watch list? This adult movie was as trendy as today’s gossip about latest celebrity leaks.

Those clips were so intense and spectacular that it remained the best-selling porn movie of the 80s for two years! For what reasons? No spoilers.

Length: 77 minutes

Director: Godfrey Daniels
Writer: Kiki Young

Pornstars:

Marilyn Chambers
Serena
John Leslie
Jessie St. James
Mike Ranger
David Morris
Richard Pacheco
John C. Holmes

3Nothing to Hide (1981)

Big bucks and big names, tight pussies, and slimy games. Nothing to Hide featured a massive budget of $400,000, which is $1,265,144 in 2022 money. Yes, picture a porn film with a million to burn! It’s bound to be good or at least that was the idea.

Two guys who are best friends have far different worldviews and personalities. One is always outgoing Casanova type of a superstar while another is as shy as a virgin from the most popular NSFW subreddits. Unlike in real life, both get laid and those scenes ended up in the history books.

Length: 101 minutes

Director: Anthony Spinelli
Writer: Mitch Spinelli

Pornstars:

Erica Boyer
Elizabeth Randolph
Richard Pacheco
John Leslie
Tigr
Richard Dove
Jack Hoffey

2Traci, I Love You (1987)

This is the only and last porn movie with Traci Lords, a controversial pornstar who has got into trouble for entering the business a tad earlier. Every other film was removed from the shelves and good riddance, we say. In addition to generating controversies, Traci also generates cash and is one of the richest female pornstars to this day. If you want to see why everyone was raving about this celebrity, watch it now.

The story features a photographer who is keen on taking naked pictures of Traci. After fucking a casting agent, Traci goes wild and ends up in a massive orgy with multiple people.

Length: 80 minutes

Director: Jean-Pierre Floran
Writer: Jean-Pierre Floran

Pornstars:

Traci Lords
Marilyn Jess
Gabriel Pontello
Alban Ceray
Nathalie Christal
Alain L’Yle

1Talk Dirty to Me (1980)

The cast might not impress you at first glance, but this movie is kind of a big deal or at least was at the time. Not only did it receive spinoffs plus 15 sequels (from “Talk Dirty to Me: Part 2” to “Talk Dirty to Me 15”), but it’s considered as one of the most influential movies of the 1980s. In fact, not just the 80s but the whole “Golden Age of Porn” in general.

And if random awards for best film, best actor, and whatever else is best don’t convince you, then how about a script? Talk Dirty to Me features a male superstar who claims that he can get any woman into bed. Well, then a hot blonde comes into picture and the rest is for you to figure out.

Length: 80 minutes

Director: Anthony Spinelli
Writers: Dean Rogers, Anthony Spinelli, Mitch Spinelli

Pornstars:

Jesie St. James
John Leslie
Juliet Anderson
Richard Pacheco
Sharon Kane
