"Filled with gems...Basically, if you have an interest in the 1980s era of adult movies, this book is a *must*. Bright exquisitely bangs a keyboard about John Holmes, racism in XXX, interviews Sharon Mitchell and John Leslie, reviews super-rad rarities like SMOKER, TAMPON TANGO, and...aw man, there is just so much good stuff in here."
— Robin Bourgie, Cinema Sewer
"An amazing experience to read the book and learn just how freaking much Susie Bright knows about classic porn."
