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
