Currently available on Blu-ray, Buddies should be mentioned. Buddies is not an adult film, nor does it contain any explicit sex. However, Buddies is directed by gay adult film pioneer Arthur J. Bressan, Jr. Buddies was also the first dramatic feature film to talk about AIDS that was ravishing the gay adult movie industry at the time and would be the final film made by Arthur before he, himself, died of AIDS.

I am really looking forward to Memories with Miss Aggie because the director did some other great movies.
I have never seen this one, but from what I have read it is well worth checking out. Vinegar Syndrome mentioned Through the Looking Glass on their website being the same writer.

According to their newsletter released today, next year all hardcore releases (well, all releases) are going to be Blu-ray releases. However, they are apparently only will be releasing 10 adult releases next year. Less than half of this year's output.

I'm okay with quality over quantity although I assume the more marginal films and roughies won't make it to blu which is a shame.

I am all about this announcement. To have any kind of step forward in progress one must invest. Sometimes that means more risky decisions. To me this move is a no-brainer.
The qauntity over quality shows in the constant releases of DVD, and them having to blow them out.
I am sure they obviously still make money, but the long term makes the consumer exhausted for the collector's market. If there are strong titles in HD, they will sell, and word will continue to get around that this company continues to be the best for adult titles in HD (I just hope sex is the focus over some of the dreary titles that keep penetrating....maybe a mix like Anna Obsessed?.
All that said, the one thing I saw with the announcement is their refusal to separate adult from horror. Pack together's only work if there is a true theme like "complete" director...etc. Making consumers buy a horror title with an adult title, or like the golden age Volume #3 to go with Volume #1 is silly. For those of us that will not collect the horror, not only does it make it look bad on the shelf, but furthermore it corners themselves into stopping the momentum before it has begun.
It leaves consumers with their hands up saying...but I don't want the horror collection and I shouldn't be forced to get it if I don't want it.
It is like sticking gay porn in with "mainstream" ...with no theme.
Take my criticism for what it is. I know it is usually soap up and worship Vinegar Syndrome, but to me without some complaints, perhaps there wouldn't be a change. I will say this, with this announcement, there are going to be lots of bluray collectors that will be happy, and they are very much out there just waiting for something like this that ALWAYS made sense. With Deep Throat coming out soon with a new 2K transfer, I hope this is the shape of things to come. There are some that will be stubborn till they see the market take off. Some of those people will be eating their words.

I actually complained about this move since it reduced the adult movies coming out from Vinegar Syndrome from 26 last year to I believe it is 12 this year.
Happily, Vinegar Syndrome has announced a new sublabel Peekarama (taking the name from their adult DVD double feature releases) that will still release adult films that for one reason or another aren't Blu-ray worthy on DVD. The releases aren't going to be monthly anymore though.
Just out of curiosity, how do you know that Deep Throat is a new 2K transfer? I'm just curious since the distributor has been unable to get that information from Sunset Entertainment.

Why would you complain about transferring at high quality? That truly makes zero sense to me. If the format sells then there will obviously be more titles. DVD is moving further into the past as it should. These movies are filmed and they are absolutely bluray worthy. Matter of fact, they are actually more than bluray worthy because they are analog film.
I never get someone actively sabotaging progress.
Just do me a favor, if the titles pick up speed in sales and more come out, please feel free to apologize. They already come out at what...2 a month. You don't think bluray can be done that way if not more????
As for Deep Throat, I read about it elsewhere. Do I "know"...well I read it, so take that for what it is worth. The info isn't that hard to find.
Although if it was filmed and scanned, why wouldn't it be done in a 2K transfer? Would that be minimum quality? Not that it would matter for someone that wants to put titles out like crap through a goose no matter the quality.

If you are happier with less adult titles coming out per year then yes you would be happy, or if only titles that come out on Blu-ray interest you then you would be happy. The complaint was over the fact this is 14 less adult movies a year. And no, not every film will come out on Blu-ray. Some will not have the sales to justify it. Some don't have existing elements to justify it. The reason for the change, per Vinegar Syndrome, is that horror is outselling adult so there is more focus on horror films now.
Yes I have seen the non-sourced information on the internet on Deep Throat. The last known scan of Deep Throat was a 720p scan of the CRI which is what the company Intimate Film used for their Blu-ray upscaled to 1080p. There is a general concern that Sunset Entertainment is using the same 720p scan. I asked in case you had actually seen something real from Sunset Entertainment.

Horror has been outselling adult titles because they have been given better treatment and it is obvious....yet there are key titles that have actually outsold horror and I have pointed them out to you. It is easy to declare something a winner when the other genre has been handicapped. We have been over this.
Here are the facts, you are declaring something a failure before it has even been given a fair chance. You want only quantity and refuse to look at the possibility of a better future where care is put into product and giving a public a fair chance to decide. You want to make it where the public has no choice whatsoever only DVD, and that just isn't right.
WORSE you do this as a spokesperson for Vinegar Syndrome (you said you moderated a board on them right??)
Quality will win out every single time and investing in a future is a hell of a lot smarter than throwing money at a dying format.
Oh and for the record, where are you getting this idea that "existing elements" hurts bluray. Even video tape is not your average VHS quality. 2 inch Video tape is broadcast level and that again is analog, which absolutely benefits from a high bit rate bluray. There is complete and utter crap horror movies being put out in great quality, and the "justification" for adult titles is no worse than that. But again...adult titles sales in quality will surprise you.
When Adult titles match horror titles in focus and fails, then you can have a point. The facts are that Adult titles have destroyed horror sales in almost every single market throughout history.
The only reason that adult has failed in bluray is because the A list titles were never transferred. A-list means VINTAGE.
As for Deep Throat, Sunset Entertainment has claimed that this will not be an upscale but a fresh 2K scan. I refuse to promote the website I got the information from, but a quick google search will be your friend. I don't believe in "rumors", I follow the facts, and I am a betting man that this time it just might be right which is a GREAT thing. Pity you don't see the value.

I moderate here. At Adult DVD Talk. I have no connection with Vinegar Syndrome. I am not their spokesman. I have no idea where you have gotten that from.
As for most everything else, you show you don't have the knowledge to continue this discussion so I am done with that. If you want to go argue the elements thing go talk with Vinegar Syndrome.
Good day.

I have you mixed up with someone else that had some facebook page. My mistake.
As for the insult to me, by saying I "don't have the knowledge", it is you that seems to be a little deficient if you are claiming that the adult titles that were restored by Vinegar Syndrome do not have the elements.
Video tape or film, both benefit a great deal with bluray quality, there is really nothing more to discuss about this fact that is pretty easily proven.
Vinegar Syndrome has made it clear that they will continue to support DVD releases, and you want to cry about that and make it where people that are fans of bluray adult titles should not be given a choice. That is selfish.
Vinegar Syndrome discussions happen, what that has to do with what you and (quick one word correction) I exchange in ideas, I will never know.

As an FYI for those who are unaware, Vinegar Syndrome is running their yearly black Friday sale until Monday night. This isn't adult related, however, they are putting their Etiquette Pictures line out of print, so if you want any of those titles, this is the time to pick them up.

Lee Frost's softcore turned hardcore roughie A Climax of Blue Power is planned for a January release on Blu-ray from Vinegar Syndrome and Carter Stevens' Tinseltown is planned for a February release on Blu-ray as well.

I got a question (moving past the other stuff, we can agree to disagree), I thought it was interesting that one of the characters was named Betty Childs in A Climax of Blue Power. That reminded me of Revenge of the Nerds. I am sure it means nothing, but sometimes there are little jabs in pictures, and who knows.
I know nothing of both of these films, but after reading up on them, I am intrigued.

Not a fan of Climax but a restored print could change my mind, what I saw may have been cut to ribbons as well and I'm a big fan of Lee Frost's softcore roughies so I was a bit surprised to find myself underwhelmed.

A review will be coming in the near future; however, I am not convinced this isn't an upconvert of the 720p scan done of the CRI many years ago.

I don't check this smartbuydisc.ru nearly as much as I used to, unfortunately, but it's always a welcome surprise to log on and see that I've missed an exciting back and forth argument.
Anyway, a few (perhaps redundant) points of clarification:
1. We're releasing more horror because horror titles far outsell hardcore titles. Does that mean that EVERY horror title outsells EVERY hardcore title? Of course not. But then there's only three Pretty Peaches films, four (doable) Taboo films, two Candy films, a finite number of Hyapatia Lee starring vehicles, and one Sex World...If you get my drift.
2. The 2019 hardcore Blu-ray schedule is going to focus on films by good directors. Regarding the earlier comment on 'good sex' over 'dreary' films, I love dreary films. I much prefer them to silly films. Good sex is subjective and therefore irrelevant.
3. 2 Inch tape hasn't been 'broadcast quality' in nearly two decades. It was the highest quality video format for about thirty years, but as soon as basically all broadcasts went HD, sourcing something from 2 inch is completely pointless, unless it was shot on tape. Yes, Blu-rays of SOV movies can look better than DVD releases of SOV movies, providing the tape source is in extremely good shape, but a 2 inch tape is basically the same resolution as DVD so the only quality advantage of issuing a Blu from 2 inch is to avoid DVD compression artifacting. But since we don't deal with SOV productions, this is irrelevant.
4. The first Peekarama DVD in the new line will probably happen some time late in Q1 or early in Q2.

Some of the best adult films are ones I would consider dreary. Bella, Her Name Was Lisa, Cry For Cindy, Baby Rosemary.
Awesome, that is actually a lot sooner than I was expecting.

The Tinseltown blu by Carter Stevens looks promising but reviews are hard to come by. Has anyone seen this? Apparently it had a truncated VHS release. Great cover too.

They've announced Damiano's downbeat Skinflicks for Blu. Also Milligan's Fleshpot on 42nn Street which isn't hardcore but has a nice performance by Harry Reems.

Actually, Fleshpot on 42nd Street isn't the softcore version originally released on Vinegar Syndrome Direct, it is the original director's cut hardcore version of the film.

John,

I haven't checked the smartbuydisc.ru lately so please I apologize for my delay.

1. I am confused by the horror titles for outselling hardcore titles. Based on what? From what has been released, the horror titles have far out numbered the adult titles on bluray, but also what has been released I wouldn't call exactly sex based. Subjective...sure, but Her Name was Lisa, Corruption...Memories Within Miss Aggie?? Seriously? History based cult status..sure, but spank material really??? Yeah right. This is not a fair comparison at all.

2. I love dreary films too, but I love good sex more. Irrelevant? To who? to the paying public that kept porn alive for many many decades? GTFO? Good sex is important, and it is a sad sad thing that torture and the like takes a front seat to Americans that are a sick fucked up twisted lot. Sorry, just my opinion, and I would hate to see my opinion deleted yet again. Put up the serious challenge, have sex equaled to horror and the let the games begin on who sell better.

3. 2 Inch Tape is analog. It is not the same quality of DVD in any way shape or form. This is scientific. There are millions of aluminum oxide particles that prove this. The quality didn't suddenly drop off because of some modern idiotic mentality that believes it so. I have covered this ad nauseam elsewhere and the group think isn't going to be convinced, let alone convincing anyone here. It is as stupid as trying to get people to convert Sesame Street episodes. Either you get that it was captured analog or not, it is that simple. It is a scientific fact that the quality is absolutely there, and DVD is a far far smidgeon of the original quality and and 8 gigs will not and never do it justice, I don't care how many digital religious buffs try to make it so.

Shot on tape has a quality that is just "different" than an HD broadcast, and thank goodness for that. I was watching Karate Kid in a 4K scan and my jaw just dropped at the quality that a current Shameless episode could never achieve. Writing that off as some kind of miss in detail is severely losing the point. Old porn should be scanned in as good as quality as possible. The 4K scan of Maniac is proof positive of that (and that was only 16 mm). Use your eyes people. I have been banned from a great many boards because I state the fucking truth. The dip in quality from the streaming sheep is just plain old sad, and you can see it on other boards. They push for mediocrity, and that is exactly what they get.

4. I think all peekarama should be released on bluray, but that is my opinion, but if it does I will be buying in force. Just like many many other salivate (look at the youtube clips for fuck's sake) for the few peekarama put out like Sweet Young Foxes/Young Like It Hot that was wasted in a limited edition. There were class A titles that were basically thrown away on half hazard compilations instead of cherished in their own releases, while basic torture porn was given front row center.

This is all just my opinion and sorry that it offends, but if you want the truth you aren't going to get it in censored smartbuydisc.rus. Sex sells and will always outsell horror if done correctly. That remains to be seen if this will ever be done right. I love Vinegar Syndrome but I refuse to have history be glossed over as if it didn't happen.

People that have managed video stores, the whole internet, etc... no one in their right mind can ever be truly serious in thinking that horror could ever outdo sex films sales! It is a promotion scheme and comparing a handicap runner (sex) to a Carl Lewis on steroids (horror) given every possible advantage is called the winner?

*UPDATE*

p.s. I want to state that while what I have said is very blunt, it is not meant to insult anyone here or anyone that has posted. This is not personal, but rather a general overview as I see it. Sorry if it comes off as offensive.

^ There is really nothing very shocking or offensive about your post. Some of it doesnít relate to what john posted, other portions are just opinion, and other portions donít make much sense. I admit I did not read in detail. Anyway, I donít think you need to worry about being censored and I donít know why you brought that up beyond delusions of grandeur.

Regarding #1 (and #2 actually) it seems very clear that specific hardcore titles may outsell horror titles but overall the hardcore does not sell as well as horror. Therefore, VS are choosing to focus on super duper great films that are hardcore because those are the hardcore titles that sell well. What constitutes ďgood sexĒ is indeed subjective so it is pointless trying to have that debate. Sex World is imo one if the sexiest films ever made. Itís also probably dreary according to some. I donít know. But I think everyone can agree that it is completely fantastic as a film.

The last part was uncalled for. If you are ignorant on circumstanced why guess? Regardless I had my reasons for bringing it up, so lets just leave it at that.

As for not relating or being just opinion. Which part? I think I made it clear that some of what I said was my opinion but restating implies there was more????

To anyone that owned a video store or has been aware of the internet sex sells far more than horror. Matter of fact back in the rental days the sex would outsell the entire fucking store! The same is true about the internet is this even a debate?

The difference with DVD is that the free shit is a hard competition. But comparing horror films to sex on bluray is flat out silly when so few exist.

As for Sex World we are in complete agreement on it being a great film and the sales prove my point all the more. Was there any killing or torture that I can't remember? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the titles that are sex based getting more notice.

Not that I think grit and edgy story etc should never take place but when it gets to the point of being the focus and it stops being a sex film well that makes all this jazz about horror outselling sex fall flat.

What is comical about this discussion is how sex sells the horror titles too. Take out the t&a in the Vinegar Syndrome and they are lots of titles that would flat out not be bought.

I do appreciate your discussion, and I perhaps do have delusions. Though as Randal from Clerks would say, I would like to think I am a master of my own destiny. Cheers!

I hope we can at least both agree that Vinegar Syndrome is a great company and ANY porn on bluray is at least a great step.

Subjective...sure, but Her Name was Lisa, Corruption...Memories Within Miss Aggie?? Seriously? History based cult status..sure, but spank material really??? Yeah right. This is not a fair comparison at all.

Actually, MEMORIES was one of the better selling hardcore Blus of 2018! On the other hand...more sex heavy titles like MARY MARY, TRASHY LADY, and TINSELTOWN haven't performed much better than the misery fueled ones.

2. I love dreary films too, but I love good sex more. Irrelevant? To who? to the paying public that kept porn alive for many many decades? GTFO? Good sex is important, and it is a sad sad thing that torture and the like takes a front seat to Americans that are a sick fucked up twisted lot. Sorry, just my opinion, and I would hate to see my opinion deleted yet again. Put up the serious challenge, have sex equaled to horror and the let the games begin on who sell better.

Ah, the Rimmer philosophy of 'why do people love perverse acts of violence but shun depictions of consensual lust?' I think from a buying perspective, it's a lot harder for the average cult film fan to wrap their head around buying a sex focused film than a horror film with T&A. They all want the T&A, but there's still often a degree of moral (?) superiority leveled against sex films. As such, when a sex film overlaps with horror, it becomes more palatable for the average cult film fan to experiment. It's worth noting, that the more horror/cult crossover sex films have generally performed better than the more overtly sex focused ones.

3. 2 Inch Tape is analog. It is not the same quality of DVD in any way shape or form. This is scientific. There are millions of aluminum oxide particles that prove this. The quality didn't suddenly drop off because of some modern idiotic mentality that believes it so...I was watching Karate Kid in a 4K scan and my jaw just dropped at the quality that a current Shameless episode could never achieve.

The dip in quality from the streaming sheep is just plain old sad, and you can see it on other boards. They push for mediocrity, and that is exactly what they get.

I'm strictly talking lines of resolution here...I didn't mean that a 2 inch tape is DVD quality, but that both formats max out at resolutions far lower than HD, and as such, presenting them in HD will inherently require upresing. I've done plenty of 4K scans of 16mm and it's not a great analogy as well exposed 16mm film can hold the equivalent of 3K+ worth of resolution, so 4K scanning will no doubt allow for greater detail capture. Also, unlike digital upresing, film scanners work by the sensor on the scanner recording each frame in a set resolution. The image capture is not upresing. You can scan 8mm in 4K and, although there's no way the film itself will have 4K's worth of detail, the scan itself will still be legitimately 4K in resolution.

4. I think all peekarama should be released on bluray, but that is my opinion, but if it does I will be buying in force. Just like many many other salivate (look at the youtube clips for fuck's sake) for the few peekarama put out like Sweet Young Foxes/Young Like It Hot that was wasted in a limited edition. There were class A titles that were basically thrown away on half hazard compilations instead of cherished in their own releases, while basic torture porn was given front row center.

You're right on that double. Lee always moves discs so we probably woulda done better on that one in the long run had it been a standard Blu. On the other hand, most of the DVD only releases perform about the same as the average hardcore Blu, when compared over an extended period...

I stand corrected.
My personal opinion is that there is far too little adult bluray content to make a firm assertion. I readily admit that free porn has changed the landscape and proving the viable market is going to take investment. One I may be willing to do at some point. Regardless there is plenty more to be had, and there are good signs that interest is absolutely picking up.
Total agreement. Lines of resolution I feel are a small part of it. SD at a higher bit rate doesn't require it to be "HD" to gain a quality jump on bluray that has far more space as opposed to DVD which has a much lower bit rate and compressed Dolby Digital sound quality

I know I am preaching to the choir here, but I like saying it over and over because there has been far too much misinformation that DVD is enough to capture video tape. WRONG.

Not just Lee, but Shauna Grant. I hope more is to come because preservation in the best quality I think will get more fans. It is a slow boil. Thank you for the thoughtful reply. I have appreciated all of it that I have got lately. I have made my point even if all don't agree with it.

Skin Flicks and Fleshpot both arrived and I'm very happy with them. If anyone has any opinions on Trashy Lady or Tinsel Town I'd like to hear if they are worth scooping.

Haven't watched Tinsel Town yet, but I find Trashy Lady quite enjoyable as a starring vehicle for Ginger Lynn in her prime. I cannot get enough of her ever!

I've been slacking due to a large project I've been working on.

Henri Pachard's Mascara and Roger Watkins' The Pink Ladies are both coming to Blu-ray from Vinegar Syndrome in August. And unless things have changed, we are supposed to get the first DVD release from Vinegar Syndrome's new Peekarama Label in August as well.

^ I saw a crappy copy a couple of years back. I thought it was good. Henri Pachard is one of my favourite directors--sometimes he sit at the top. There aren't many filmmakers who can so successfully combine dark/fun/sexy like he does. TABOO: AMERICAN STYLE is so wonderful in that regard. Wish someone were able to restore and re-release that series...sadly I believe they cannot.

Cool, I'm hoping that this will lead to more Pachard on blu and DVD.

I watched Tinseltown and can see why it hasn't sold well. Just didn't dig it as much. It was rough on story and worse on terrible sex. Just my opinion. As usual the transfer was superb though and the labels quality is unmatched.

I am very excited by the 2 new releases posted here, Lisa De Leeuw is so hot. One of the best covers ever!

Looks like the Vinegar Sydrome sale did well by adult titles. As of this post, Skinflicks under 400, Memories within Miss Aggie under 200, Volume 3 NINE LEFT?? (while volume 4 Horror is over 400 still), Babyface 2 108, Mary Mary Sold out, Volume 1 sold out (which again sold out considerably faster than volume 2), Taboo II and III 83 left, Taboo Sold out, Trashy Lady 400, Blue Ice 209 etc...

It is a shame that more Peekarama doesn't go to bluray because the answer to me is clear. For titles that have more veterans (and not weighted down by one offs that are not into it) and often are sex based, the market is obviously there and doing quite well. So basically it is not that DVD's are going to stop being produced, it is that there is going to be segregation to pull eyes away from the main site???

The only thing that I can think of is that perhaps this is a tester market and the more popular ones will go to bluray. But there again, you end up gouging the people that buy DVD to have anything from their favorite movie, while basically squandering money that could have went to better quality.

I wish DVD would just DIE already. It is pure insanity to buy the lesser release when better is out there. And yet, there sits DVD releases like Dracula Sucks or The Ribald Tales having more special features and alternate version of the films while the bluray gets stuck on a compilation AND having nothing extra. Both of those titles have been severely cut down in price for a long time and still haven't sold out, yet they have all the bells and whistles?

It is what it is.

Is it really true that Vinegar Syndrome is not releasing anymore adult blurays for the rest of the year? I see that there is Vice Academy series and while very interesting, does not qualify.

This is really quite sad because I found Mascara to be a very interesting film indeed.

Again, the separate adult DVD line will hurt sales/releases of bluray. It is a shame that the DVD's that are included are not dropped completely from the release to cut down cost/price.

Guess I can wish in one hand and shit in the other... lol

Where did you see Vinegar Syndrome's release schedule through the rest of the year?

Yes, we are very well aware of how you feel about their DVDs at this point.

Edited to add, based on their initial expectations, there are four more still coming (unless they don't count Fleshpot) since I believe the expectation was 12. This could have changed over the course of the year.

In addition, supposedly the debut Peekarama DVD is still coming, although that seems to be delayed at this point, hopefully not canceled completely.

Yeah I kind of regret part of what I have said. It is not my business to say how someone should run theirs. I am betting you are jumping for joy though with the continuing backward step of DVD only release. ;)

On a brighter note, I finally got around to watching Memories within Miss Aggie today. I was floored. This was a really great release. While I do criticize the glum nature of a lot of porn releases, there is no denying a really good movie in any light.

Vinegar Syndrome's quality is unreal and I am glad to own this one.

As for where I saw the schedule, I perhaps have jumped the gun looking at comments posted elsewhere. My mistake with that as well... if I am truly mistaken.
