Sexytime: The Post-Porn Rise of the Pornoisseur


Sexytime: The Post-Porn Rise of the Pornoisseur Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sexytime is the book that pornoisseurs all over the world have anxiously been waiting for. Not that grade drooler, the porn addict, mind you, but the porn aesthete, the porn classicist who knows his stag film history and lives by the credo, Veni ergo sum.

An oversized coffee table book celebrating the art of the 1970s porn movie poster, Sexytime collects over a hundred of the most outrageously over-the-top porn movie posters of the era. It will include "classics" like The Sex-Ray Machine, Candy Goes to Hollywood, and the Senator's Daughter starring such '70s porn stalwarts as Annie Sprinkle, John Holmes, and Seka.

This is the book for those who harbor a healthy, passionate yet tortured curiosity and appreciation, in short, a total jones for retro design mixed with brazen sexuality, who want to discover a secret, blushing school of design that is uniquely controversial to this day. Selected with heat sensitive attention to detail and accompanied by a brain-ripping narration on the rise of "post-porn" by Jacques Boyreau, this collection of pristinely re-mastered movie posters from the golden age of American porn is a portrait of taboo-busting 1970s "porno chic" erotomania. Accept no substitutes.


A surprising collection of art & graphic design from the golden age of adult cinema.
