Does anyone even go to the movies anymore? Now with everything from Netflix to Hulu and a million other choices in between you can see the latest celluloid features in the comfort of your own portable device. But what about porn films? Can you even see a skin flick in a theater these days? Now that Times Square in New York has cleaned up its act I wouldn’t even know where to catch the latest porn on the big screen. You might have to travel abroad to check out a xxx in a proper theater today. In the meantime, here’s a look through a collection of pre-AIDS 60’s and 70’s erotica movie posters.
Most of these are pretty tame. In fact mainstream fashion spreads are more risqué these days. Aside from the nude frontal muff shots they were pretty conservative back then when it came to publicity. All the suggestion is in the titles which converse to that genre of “dumb speak” where it’s painfully obvious what’s going to happen once you start watching. Some also play into the success of popular titles from that period. A few of the better ones are Flash Pants, Love In 3D, Hot Lunch and School Of Hard Knocks. Perhaps the most popular title Debbie Does Dallas released in 1978 has some interesting history. The lead character played by actress Bambi Woods actually tried out for the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders but was cut during auditions. The film wasn’t shot in Dallas but around New York City including Brooklyn College’s athletic field and Pratt Institute’s library. Both took place without either school’s knowledge. (via juxtapoz)
