Descripción

Brown glossy boards. 160 pp.; profusely illus. from contemp. sources; bibliograpy; filmography; index. Minimal wear, else fine - a handsome copy. Finally out from under the bed & into the artistic mainstream - this book celebrates the youthful period of pulchritudinally frank, filmic porno, ca. 1920's - 1960's. Parental guidance required - no foolin'! (& how will you explain those Mexican movie stills to grandma, as well?). Regardless of how one defines obsenity (personally, I'd say the War in Iraq is a far more obsene thing than this earnest little tome) this is inarguably a remarkable book. Mr. Tynan provides all the erudite justifications one may ever need. Size: Oblong 12mo. N° de ref. de la librería 001822

Sinopsis:

"Its always pleasant to see prudery knocked, and whenever I read articles bu fellow-intellectuals in defence of pornography, I do my best to summon up a cheer. Lately, however, the heart has gone out of my hurrahs. The old adrenalin glow has waned. And now that I've analysed a number of recent anti-censorship tracts, I think I know why. The writers are cheating. A whiff of evasiveness, even of outright hypocrisy, clings to their prose: Too much is left unspoken, or unadmitted. Their arguments, when you look at them closely, shift on the quicksands of timidity. On the surface, a fearless libertarian has come forth to do battle with the forces of reaction........"
