WERK OUT

WATCH: ’80s Workout Video Or Softcore Gay Porn? You Decide

 

Y’know how your friend sends you a YouTube video and while you’re watching it, you noticed the strangest image on one of the “suggested” videos on the right column? That’s how we found this gem, apparently a clip from a workout video for lonely divorcees circa 1983. We love the knee-high socks, kicky Latin beat and furry bare chests. Pull up a box of White Zin and enjoy.

    the first soloflex ads were kind of porny for a very young kid when they would just show the guy working out in not their shorts.

  • Tone

    “And over on your stomach…”
    Yup it works as pron.

  • David C

    Oh hell, yeah. I need a cigarette now.

  • Thomas

    The creepy female (?) commentator just adds to the surreality with her molesteresque comments.

  • iDavid

    The extended Vids are really sexy. I’d take an 80’s bod anyday. As one who hates treadmills, I think I just saw my next cardio workout. Thx Queeerty. Down Boner! That’s my dog.

  • dfrw

    That was awesome. I watched it without sound.

  • crisi

    gotta love them short shorts

  • Orange

    Great chest

  • Mr. Enemabag Jones

    God, I miss the eighties.

  • jack e. jett

    The female voice ruins it for me……..

    As someone who was very sexual adventureous in my youth, I have found that as I get older I am morphing back to my more vanilla days. I am also way over the six pack stomach and shaved bods….

    I thank God that hairy assholes are making a comeback.

  • christopher di spirito

    Very hot. I love a guy with a thick head of hair and not overly muscled.

  • alan Balehead

    Funny how the unhappy femminists of the 80’s complained about the 20 minute workouts…but stayed silent about these…..

  • dvlaries

    I remember these! Showtime played them in between movies, and they often kept your eyes more faithfully on them than the features. You never knew when they’d be on, so you never had your early VHS machine cued to tape them.

  • jockjack5

    OMG… I actually heard her say… “And now for the hard one”
    Yes, it is very gay… loved it!!

  • jockjack5

    @Thomas: Too funny… molesteresque… but quite apt.

  • catinhat

    This reminds me of a Canadian program that was on every morning. It had the most blatant crotch and butt shots with cute guys in very short shorts.

  • todd

    Ok I just watched a suggested video after the first one. It has always seemed men back then actually looked like men. Like real objects of desire…not the youth invaded model which is pandered by most of the men’s design houses today. Maybe David Gandy is the transcender of the macho man. When did we get so youth obsessed?

  • iDavid

    @Todd

    I agree, they didn’t shave their bods and primp powder and makeup like today. They were more natural and authentic looking. Not that this isn’t also present today, but seems less advertised being replaced by the primp look crowd.

  • Ganondorf

    Now for a different approach to vérité (it seems that the closer a guy is to “not wiping regularly after bowel movements,” the more natch he is on this thread ,anyway), contrasting these gents with their present day appearance in the same garb and poses would be intentionally hilarious. You doagree, so stfu. And it would prove once and for all that old only appeals to a fringe fetish set. No offense, but there’s a reason sexual appetite NORMALLY diminishes with age, and not simply because aged players and a healthy sexual fantasy life are incompatible. That said, the sexiest part of this is are the funny workout socks, redolent of columbo/murder she wrote, arm bands and leg warmers–for legs are cold without leg warmers.

  • hf2hvit

    From the era when Bruce Jenner was actually a naturally, very sexy man.

  • ewe

    There were so many beautiful guys back then. I thought it was because i was in my heyday but this just proves to me the eighties were HOT. I don’t see that sensuality today. Too many GI JOE insecurity trips. Too many paper cardboard sitcom cut outs. Too much fake masculinity posing for the sake of blending in. Those were tumultuous years but truth was the experience. HOT!!!

  • Emery J

    @dfrw: But the sound is what makes it even worse (slash better lol)!

  • iDavid

    @ewe

    Spot on, man. With the heavyness of aids and the religious right vehemently coming onto the gay scene all has changed. Nothing can quite match those “days of innocence “.

  • Mr. Enemabag Jones

    @Ganondorf:

    There he goes again. Writing a lot, and saying nothing.

  • Brad

    That is actually a Chippendales’ exercise video. I worked for a large video chain back in the early 90s and when we had to go through old video stock from a bought-out competitor, this video was in the mix. The whole video is a riot, especially the larger group exercise segments when they wear only the tiniest of shorts. Vintage indeed.

  • spider_orchid

    The “Stomach Workout” video is SO MUCH better.

  • Cam

    @Ganondorf:

    You remind me of an intellectual language excersize in German, where they will see how long they can speak without putting the descriptor in the sentance which actually defines what they are talking about.

    Your post was just like that excersize….except you forgot to put in the definer.

  • Michael

    Yum the guy on the right is so delicious.

  • Tim

    I am surprised nobody noticed that the hairy chested one on the left is the main stripper (astronauts) from the movie “Mr. Mom” – I believe seeing that scene at age 13 made me gay.
