« Hotel Rwanda (2004): C | Main | Mediocre Times »

One of the most overlooked aspects of the porn films of that era was how much more deviant they were than the bland video "erotica" of the next 20 years, until "gonzo" emerged in the mid 90's.

Debbie Does Dallas features an orgy in locker room showers and masturbation with a candle; Deep Throat has a pubic hair shaving scene and, um, the oddest soda-drinking technique I've ever seen.

That willingness to take risks was one of the worst absences in porn's least-common-denominator days and despite the production (and script) values and the more natural-looking and enthusiastic performers that many cite one of the highlights of porn's "golden age".

Boy, that needs some serious editing.
