5 hours in 6 episodes. 1 antiquity. 2 print (some in French) the Marquis de Sade as revolutionary force. 3 photography; magazine, homosexual, digital editing. 4 movies; specific films & actresses. 5 video; incredible skags, self. 6 digital relevance, what is reality, future porn but not predicted accurately by these guys. I'd like to see the whole history of the world broken up into different topics like this one -- which simply happens to be pornography. The women aren't particularly good-looking but then that's the case with most actual pornography itself, isn't it? I did learn from this. Nonetheless I'm not directing my daughter to it.
