Series of 12 short movies from the start of the twentieth century, compiled by Michel Reilhac. These movies were the first adult movies, most of them were made in order to explain how sex works to unexperimented young men before their first relation with a prostitute... Written by
Check out this porn! It still works (whatever working means in this context). These movies are most explicit, but they are far away. Time-wise and in every other aspect - save the the explicitness. The protagonists almost loose their fake beards and there is a lot of fake spanking. And this really looks innocent to us even though it is certainly not from a more innocent period. Female private parts are rubbed, dogs lick them and those of men (!), gay porn mingles with straight porn - you would not expect this around 1920-1930, but that may be because you would not expect that for contemporary (that is post-1960s) porn. But then, what do we really know about the public display of sex at all? What do we know besides the fact that porn belongs to the era of the technical reproduction of reality and because of that of course starts before 1960? These 12 clips are mysterious, as is any porn: Nobody talks about it but it is everywhere. These secret movies are now exposed to a broader audience - but what does that mean? I don't know, watch it and leave a comment here...
