Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This first comprehensive & most in-depth history of cinematic pornography details sex in film from 100 years ago to today, concentrating on the quarter-century since the legendary Deep Throat, when porn penetrated popular culture. Luke Ford is the best-known source on the porn film world today-the only journalist writing about the industry, yet not employed by the industry. It is this unique position that gives Ford the objectivity he needs to report & to check his observations with trusted sources in major news & porn publications. Insightful, compelling, bold, yet easy to understand, A History of X is a delicious romp through the back rooms & film studios of the odd characters that gave porn its start in the 1900s to the closed-door, multimillion-dollar corporate porn film machine that operates today. Sketching the origins of pornography to three novels from the 1650s, Ford traces the development of the themes that still trigger male arousal today, & the films that celebrate them: adultery, lesbianism, bondage, group sex, graphic scenes, & much more. This book includes exclusive excerpts from interviews with porn stars, producers, & distributors as well as detailed data on attempts to censor porn from the early days to now, & the horrifying new AIDS epidemic in porn. In addition to exclusively & explicitly documenting the robust & controversial careers of top porn stars Linda Lovelace, Harry Reems, Gerard Damiano, Georgina Spelvin, Traci Lords, Max Hardcore, Ginger Lynn, & others, Ford reveals the great benefits & tragic consequences that sometimes result from fame & fortune in porn film. Most importantly, Ford bravely tracks the big producers & distributors behind the movies, from the once secret Mafia & ethnic influences to the false claims of victimization by some porn stars. Far from a stuffy examination of the subject, A History of X is a fascinating expose of a business few dare touch. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_1573926787

Inhaltsangabe:

This first comprehensive and most in-depth history of cinematic pornography details sex in film from 100 years ago to today, concentrating on the quarter-century since Deep Throat, when pornography became a subject of popular culture.

Luke Ford is the best-known source on the porn film world today-the only journalist writing about the industry who is not also employed by it. This unique position gives Ford the objectivity to report without bias, and he is often consulted as a trusted news source on the porn industry by many major news publications.

Insightful, entertaining, and bold, A History of X takes us from the primitive film studios of the 1900s, where porn got its start as a daring experiment in sexual freedom, to the closed-door, multi-million-dollar porn-film corporations of today. Ford includes exclusive interviews with the stars, the producers, and the distributors as well as detailed data on censorship attempts from the early days to the present. He documents the controversial careers of top porn stars Marilyn Chambers, John Holmes, Linda Lovelace, Harry Reems, Gerard Damiano, Georgina Spelvin, Traci Lords, Max Hardcore, Ginger Lynn, and others, revealing both the great benefits and the tragic consequences that often come from fame and fortune in the porn industry.

He also discusses the many controversial aspects to the business, including Mafia influences, the impact of the AIDS epidemic on the industry, and the myths and realities behind child pornography.

Extensively researched and documented, A History of X is a fascinating expose of a business few dare to touch.
