Pornography: The Secret History Of Civilisation (1999)
The graphic depiction of sex for entertainment has been around since ancient times, and in this comprehensive (and tastefully managed) series, the directors of "Inside Deep Throat" present a wide-ranging history of the art and business of "porn." From primitive drawings on the walls of Pompeii to the World Wide Web, you'll trace the evolution of the always controversial enterprise, with segments covering erotica in the age of the printing press; the writings of the Marquis de Sade; the origins of "stag" films; and more, with commentary by industry figures such as Marilyn Chambers, John Leslie, and Seymour Butts, as well as scholars in art, history, sexuality, and film. 5 hrs. total on two discs. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
