    Just wondering if anybody has seen the two movies that basically kicked off cinematic porn as we know it... Specifically: I am Curious (yellow) and Deepthroat.

    I read a blurb a while ago about both and have been curious about viewing them ever since, but I'm not sure if they're too much of a relic of the past to enjoy on even a retro/cheese level.


    Feel free to chip in any general porn thoughts even if they aren't relevant :wink:

    Have not watched porn now for some time. Last pornos were of straight fisting, mainly the german variety as they seem to have that special kinkyness about them. Acting is hilarious, except for the sexual side, and my german is crapp, which causes me to concentate on body languge, movements more. Hands, eyes etc... when it comes to the goody, yummy parts..

    God bless em... those kinky little german porno producers :)

    They were breakthroughs in their time but do not compare well with what is available nowadays, in my opinion. I saw them both decades ago.

    Linda Lovelace alleges that she took part in Deep Throat at gunpoint and this would tend to turn me off on seeing the film again.

    I've seen them both as well. I'm Curious (Yellow) isn't really porn so much as a low-budget thing with explicit sex. I found it astoundingly mediocre and boring.

    I know that Linda Lovelace was obviously not 100% consensual with everything she did, but there's nothing about Deep Throat that makes me think that guns were anywhere near the set. As she (understandably) came out years later as a virulent critic of the porn industry, I'd take anything she said about it with a healthy dose of salt. I find it exceptionally odd that she could portray sexual satisfaction (if not exactly ecstasy) when her "acting" was otherwise so very extremely poor.

    Lasse Braun, on the other hand, was producing brilliant porn at the same time. That his legacy is now largely forgotten is a tragedy for popular-culture history.

    Saw Deepthroat years ago. Don't remember much about it other than the horrid theme song that got stuck in my head for days after watching it.
