A few shots from a forgotten/never seen 60s softcore/nudie/roughie. CINEROTIC MagazineVol 1 No 5, 1969The All-Girl Issue, packed with reviews and photos from the various Fanny Hill movies. Here are photos from the obscure women in prison movie Caged Desires. I gauge this type of movie by how intense the prison guards look and this one looks like she can hold down any cellblock without any problem. You never know what’s going to drop in the online shop.

The sex paper, KISS, was described by the New York Times as “so countercultural that it made The Village Voice look like a church circular.” Kiss was an underground adult newspaper founded in 1969 by Joel Fabricant, Dean Latimer and Peter Mikalajunas, all of whom worked at The East Village Other. The titillating and artsy paper was the most well known of the several East Village Other spinoff magazines and often featured the work and contributions of R. Crumb, Kim Deitch, Kenneth Anger and Warhol Superstars such as Ondine. The paper was padded out with sexual imagery, erotic fiction and … Continue reading UNDERGROUND SEX PAPERS & R. CRUMB

THE SMITHS – Cover Stars

Back in the day I had tried to snatch up new Smiths singles when they were released and I managed to assemble a decent little collection of 12″ and a few 45s. So being in this Smiths state of mind in the early/mid-80s, I naturally picked up a single by a band I’d never heard of called Pink Industry because of their use of Morrissey as a cover star.

Satanic Gothic – Mark of the Rope by Miriam Lynch

I can’t say I’ve ever read a gothic romance or even a plain old romance novel, but I am a fan of the gothic romance novel nonetheless. I get a bit weak in the knees over the dark, desperate art that graces so many of the covers of these books. So many fearful women in nightgowns, wandering dark estates and stormy grounds. Barren trees, tilted tombstones and that ever present element of dread. The gothic romance novel gets a tad darker and more overtly demonic with the Avon series dubbed Satanic Gothic, the logo of which features a silhouette of … Continue reading Satanic Gothic – Mark of the Rope by Miriam Lynch
