Disc 1 - Highest possible rating; Disc 2 - not quite there
14 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

6 episodes/shows on two discs; in more or less chronological order. The first four shows (all of disc 1 and the first show on disc 2) are very well done and quite informative. The final episode, produced in 1999, seems quite dated now - more of a snapshot of how things looked in 1999 rather than accurate predictions about the future of erotica. The first episode gets my highest possible rating for an objective presentation on how our society became so conflicted over erotica. The next three episodes, up through the development of photography and film, are also well done and informative. In my opinion, only the most close-minded could fail to have a more open mind about erotica after viewing the first four shows. Excellent for watching with friends and family.
