The Big Book of Porn

A Penetrating Look at the World of Dirty Movies

Details & Features

Porn is more mainstream than ever-witness recent bestsellers by Jenna Jameson, Traci Lords, the Vivid Girls, and Pamela Anderson. Continuing this fine tradition is The Big Book of Porn, a friendly, funny celebration of adult movies. Chapters include:

• Know Your Classics: The 25 most important adult films.
• Great Moments in Porn History: From the first stag movie to the invention of the VCR.
• The Pantheon of Porn: These mini-bios of mega-stars like Seka and Ron Jeremy are filled with surprising trivia.
• It’s a Porn World, After All: Adult movies from Canada, Japan, even Afghanistan.
• Make Your Own Porno: All you need is a video camera, a willing partner, and these simple pointers (”Tell a story,” “Start with a bang,” “Parody a real film title”).

Best of all, The Big Book of Porn is illustrated with classic posters, stills, and production shots from the smutty ’70s to the present day. Provocative, authoritative, and laugh-out-loud funny, The Big Book of Porn is a proud celebration of history’s most scandalous art form.
