Pubert: Let's go retro porn this Pride with this special Highlights issue.

Groeper: I haven't seen an issue of Highlights since I was a kid.

P: I haven't worn striped shorts like these since that time period either.

G: You are no hipster then. Maybe they will have some matching knee-high socks too!

Two gentlemen sit on a couch listening to music while a naked man stand before them.

P: He's serving them peanuts.

G: I think it's more like penis.

P: They just switched the cassette to play David Bowie's "Young Americans."

G: Wouldn't the song "Golden Years" be more appropriate.

P: The longhaired naked man is dancing on the table now.

G: This feels like Rocky Horror Picture Show.

P: Why does he have a lightning bolt painted on him?

G: One of the couch potatoes just picked him up like a rag doll.

P: This is footage taken from the actual films. It is grainy like the originals.

G: This is vintage from a bad vantage point.

Men dressed like aristocrats are discussing porn in a library.

P: This place looks stuffy.

G: He just said, "Roll the footage for Kennedy's sake!"

P: I'm going to start saying that.

G: It's a film within a film.

P: The music sounds like it should be in the Olympics.

G: Tarzan with the long hair doesn't know how to suck balls.

P: He just gave him a little finger up the hole.

G: He's digging in like a bowling ball.

P: You don't see that move as much these days.

G: They are talking to each other but there's no dialogue.

P: These are films that are restored where Bijou dubbed in music.

G: Definitely before condom use.

P: And before manscaping.

Back to the library where the quartet talks about their review.

G: They sound like you!

P: I guess size mattered even back in the '70s.

G: We have a solo scene now.

P: Bruce Jenner is just standing by the fireplace jacking it.

G: Wait, he's going over to his director's chair to take a load off.

P: He's making weird smirking faces.

G: Is that a Charles Manson cross on his arm?

P: I think it's a homemade tattoo.

G: This is a far cry from the tattoos we usually see in new porn.

P: He's moved over to the couch now.

G: It's weird the way he's rubbing his foreskin.

P: He seems a little bored.

G: This video looks like it should be played in the background at Big Chicks.

P: Exactly! This was before they called them twinkies, more like a cupcake.

G: I think that's Liberace tickling the ivories in the background music.

Next throwback scene has two young ones on a couch.

P: I swear that's Ozzy Osbourne wailing in the music.

G: I don't ever think I've heard live rock music in a porno before.

P: It's like you are a virgin all over again.

G: Oh my goodness, he just fucked him on a beanbag chair!

P: The screaming in the music was somehow timed to the bottom getting banged.

The adult movie aristocrats continue arguing over what film clip is best.

G: Two students are in the nude in a dorm.

P: Is that John Denver singing in the background?

G: I want to buy this soundtrack!

P: The lyrics are "C'est la vie."

G: "Such is life" when you are getting cornholed!

P: That zit on his ass is the biggest I've ever seen!

G: Maybe it's a boil.

P: The bottom looks a little like Chris Colfer from Glee.

GOLDEN YEARS from page 74

Relaxing at the pad with a strong seventies décor.

G: Who lays naked in front of a fireplace on a rug?

P: Who doesn't? I prefer a bearskin rug though, and maybe a glass of wine.

G: I love the wrap-around dark metal staircase.

P: Check out that guys silver visor!

G: It's a match made in Heaven.

P: They just don't decorate enough in white brick anymore.

G: It's such a shame they don't.

P: It looks like they are dancing to this Doors music while they are kissing.

G: It was called "necking" back then.

P: The lyrics to the song go "goddamn the pusher."

G: Maybe it's his dealer.

P: They don't make drugs the way they used to!

G: That wrap-around staircase comes in handy when you are eating ass.

P: Lots of open spaces and cracks to get into.

G: I'm loving the tall white socks.

P: He's getting shagged on a shag carpet.

G: Someone is going to get carpet burned!

P: Talk about a pusher, he just pushed the white stuff right out of him.

G: We didn't get to see that happened with the aristocrats and their adult review.

P: It just ended with a bang on the floor.

G: Maybe there will be a sequel. Golden Years 2: Electric Boogaloo.

P: Way to leave us hangin'.

G: Hang loose and have a great Pride.

P: I've been going to Gay Prides for years, since the Golden Years!

Pubert: Thumbs up the seventies butt.

Groeper: Thumbs up for those retro porn lovers.

This review is dedicated to the passing of porn star Erik Rhodes, may he rest in peace.

Have a safe and happy Pride, from Pubert and Groeper!
