PHOTOS: Our Victorian Grandfathers of Gay Porn (NSFW)

Whoever said the Victorians were dull has clearly never seen these photos.

We recently stumbled across the website Victorian Gentleman in Love, which features images of gay men caught in loving and, at times, compromising positions. This led us to investigate more vintage gay porn and — low and behold — we learned there are tons of websites devoted to it.

Who knew?

Once we got over the fact that the subjects in these photographs have likely been dead for more than a century, we came to appreciate the pictures for what they were. These men were the original pioneers of homoerotic porn. They give a whole new meaning to the term “the Gay ’90s.”

Scroll down to see some of our favorite images. (Sadly, we had to censor many of them. Who’da thunk a group of Victorian men would violate our site’s guidelines?)
