Keeping your Tails Up:
The Looniverse



Just like with photography, stereo photography and especially Polaroid photography (don't forget digital!),
where it often looks like photography equals pornography, the movies have produced their share of titillating entertainment.
But it has always remained underground; the legit business has mainly steered clear.


I have often wondered why pornography mostly is so sleazy. Since attitudes have changed so much and pornography has become almost respectable, this has remained the same. The girls these days are much more attractive, often acting and looking more like enthusiastic amateurs in the original French sense of the word than, as it used to be, wasted uninterested hookers for who it's all in the daily grind. The men are still godawful, hairy, tattooed, and potbellied sleezers. Makes one wonder less why those chicks would take on dogs, donkeys and pigs; come right down to it, these beasts may hold more attractions. Unfortunately, this tends to make me vain. There's no getting 'round it, even at my rotten old age I must seem more attractive to a human being than your average billy-goat. But the real secret may be that, essentially, porno always remains small time.

A producer of porno movies in the way-back-when super-8 market told me that you could use the same male characters over and over again; nobody was interested in these guys. Members of the audience, be they male or female, watched the girls, and the turn-over in female porn stars thus still is much larger than for male stars.
Which, of course, is exactly the same in legit non-porn movies.

If you're lucky, you may run across these.
The word is, this is moonlighting by artists at a major Hollywood animation studio, and it's easy to believe that.
Better done than a charred steak, just as hot, and very funny. They were obviously made in the 1930s, when that was still possible.

In the 1970s, there were at least two European outfits making porno animations.
A German one, which movies were released on super-8 film, but were presented at Festivals as well.
Then there was an Italian studio, of which I don't think I've seen anything.

They made a spoof on Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

Another strip-turned-porno movie is Up in Flames with the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers (live action).
I only hope Gilbert Shelton got some money for it, and the same for Robert Crumb, whose Mr. Natural is in it as well. But I guess not. Not much, anyway.
This is a very amateurish production. Sound, direction, acting... One very funny scene, to me, is where they set up this cozy bed-nest,
with a beautifully lit hot-spot for two girls to play out a lesbian scene in. They get so carried away that they end up next to all that light.
Obviously, nobody dared say a word to disturb them and they neck on in semi-darkness.
