Best Site Concept
AVN Online Internet Awards 2000
(also proud nominee for Best Overall)
It was wonderful, it was surreal, it was great. Among the highlights of life to this point. Our own little "Oscar" moment. The lovely dinner, the beautifully dressed people, the flashy show. Only instead of having Julia Roberts, we had the lovely porn star Kobe Tai reading the nominees and then saying our name. Cue the flashing lights, the stunned feeling, the blind walk to the stage focused completely on not falling on our faces, the rushed (and slightly goofy) acceptance...and then we are led backstage to tell the AVN reporter what winning "means to us". Well, truth is, it meant alot. Pretty damn cool.
We appear twice in the April edition of AVN Online. The first article is a brief interview they did right after our win. The second article is an overview of the entire awards ceremony and the winners. AVN Online also has a print version which has a picture of the curator and webmaster in a layout with the winners and nominees. Oddly enough, we are front and center with the largest photo in the layout. Maybe they thought we looked the happiest. :)

Hester Nash curates one of the largest collections of porno-bilia on the Net
by Tristan Taormino
October 13th, 2005
Do you find yourself wondering about how RetroRaunch came to be? Who's running this joint, anyway? It's now easy to find out: the story of RetroRaunch and our Curator, Hester Nash, is published in the new book "Naked Ambition: How Women are Changing the Sex Industry", an anthology (edited by Carly Milne best known for the classic and lamented pornblography.com, she has a number of other books on the way), of writings from some of the most interesting women working and writing about sex today: the ever-lovely and brilliant Nina Hartley, the delightful and daring TRISTAN TAORMINO , the Goth Goddess Joanna Angel , and many others. It's a great read from fascinating sex-positive women. Check it out!
|Fierce.com was nice enough to put us in their new book Fierce.com - The Exclusive Book for Web Elitists. Tor Hyams and david Scharff are absolutely hilarious and sometimes very, very cruel. :) Reading some of the other reviews made us really appreciate what they said about us. Get this book!|
You can also find us mentioned in Deb Levine's best selling book The Joy of Cybersex.
"Another fascinating site is RetroRaunch. It contains "a century of smut," including more than 5,000 erotic photos of women and men through the ages. The key to this site is that the photos are all from the era before porn was glamorous and lucrative, so these poses feel more genuine and sexy."
|On October 15th, 1998, our webmistess did a live chat at washingtonpost.com, hosted by Linton Weeks. They discussed decency, indecency, censorship, feminism and the brutal competition among sex sites.|
|RetroRaunch is proud to be a charter member of the Femmerotic Network!|
|Adult Stars Magazine
also has nice things to say about us! Here's a sample:
"But, after looking at the naked bodies without plastic tits, enhanced thighs and all the other plastic girl accessories, I started to appreciate the real bodies, in true human proportions, even in black and white... It is definitely worth a visit and I found it to be quite refreshing in these days of everdecreasing boundaries on the net."
