For Adults Only *wink, wink*
Porn. It’s been around for centuries. We’ve all seen it, and most of us have enjoyed it in one form or another, although the line is often blurred between what is classed as porn and what is classed as erotica, or soft porn. No matter how you look at it, or what your preferences are, we all know when porn, is porn.
Porn is such an ugly word, don’t you think? A distinction between the more artistic sounding “erotica” and hardcore porn is inevitable, although personally, I think there’s a place for both, no matter how blurry the line.
Hardcore porn from the 1950’s to 1980’s makes me giggle. I think it’s a combination of changing fashions in hair – both upstairs and downstairs, the ridiculous modesty that often “came” into play, especially seeing as these was absolutely no question as to what you were watching, and also the quaint and often very cheesy titles and posters of erotica from decades gone by.
Speaking of which, here are a few of my favourites. None of which I’ve ever actually seen, but you have to admit they’re fun…
Where do I start? In “throbbing” color, seems like as good a place as any. I suppose you could say hot pink is a bit “throbby” – at least on the eyes. And I think the title says it all. Who, or more to the point, what do we have here? I see a goat, what looks like a very hairy sheik and Dr Phil, amongst many. Wait, Dr Phil? What have we happened upon here? Does his wife know about this? Odd tastes, indeed.
Well, I just don’t know what to tell you about this. Is this some kind of necrophiliac fetish film? The more I look at it, the more it disturbs me. I think that guy is actually supposed to be a corpse. And here I was thinking at first glance that they were a highly sexed couple on holiday somewhere in Europe. Ergh. Moving right along…
Funny that I was just listening to a rather well known band of the same name. I think I remember reading somewhere that Mudhoney got their name from a movie. “You will go away……whispering!” Something I always look for in a film.
What… what? BEYOND booze? So, does this mean that people only “sin” and nymphomaniacs are only active when they’re drunk? Hmm. Well, obviously NOT, according to this film. And how shocking that is.
I’m well aware of the cheesiness of current day porn cover art, but wouldn’t it be fun if there was a trend towards the innocence of old… and I use the word “innocence” very loosely. *wink*
More to “come” in this series…
Here endeth the overt use of inverted commas.
