Manville Goes Retro With 'Classic Loops: Gay XXX From the Past'

CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Manville Entertainment and Pulse Distribution have rolled out “Classic Loops: Gay XXX From the Past” via nascent Manville Classics label. The compilation collects archival sexplay from the 1970s and ‘80s.

The condomless, all-male footage was uncovered in a “treasure trove of retro films in the vaults of our brother studios,” said Austin, executive producer for Manville Entertainment.

He notes the raw, rough qualities derive from a time when gay erotica was produced and released through underground channels.

In an earlier interview, Austin said the films encompass more than “a time capsule of gay porn in its infancy. The movies are a reflection of an era of unapologetic sexual expression. The sex is raw, the men natural and masculine.”

He notes the footage is pulled from film stock and Beta masters. “Due to the age of these masters, minimal modern technology has been applied to contrast, stabilization and sound,” Austin said. “I did not want to lose the essence of what these movies reflect: straightforward man-on-man sex from a bygone era.”

Customers can’t get enough of classic content, said Pulse VP of Sales Hyland C. He notes the content in “Classic Loops: Gay XXX From the Past” has never been released for home entertainment, neither on DVD nor VHS.
