The internet makes it easy for us to easily consume porn. But even so, good porn is hard to find. Much of what is available online will never live up to the golden age of adult films like The Devil and Mrs. Jones or Deep Throat. Such x-rated fare made porn stars like Nina Hartley and Ron Jeremy household names. However, producing in great porno was not easy. They actually needed talent for making a good film. You know—the type of film which had to be shot, developed, and then screened inside an actual theatre.
It’s virtually impossible to locate any porn theatres within the United States these days. The only thing remaining from the by-gone era of erotic cinema is a collection fun and sexy promotional posters. These posters are a reminder of a time when couples would sit and watch an entire adult film. Not just fast forward the juicy parts. But getting people to visit the theatres required a bit of creativity ingenuity. To convey a film’s message production companies began developing x-rated movie posters, expressing the spirit and freedom of excess inside each scene.
Here are some of the best vintage X-Rated movie posters from Golden Age of Porn.
