Editorial Reviews

The Sed Ed (or marriage manual) film is one of the most significant genres in the history of American adult cinema. As peculiar as it may sound in an age of virtually limitless smut, it was not too many decades ago that explicit representations of sexual activity were considered both morally and legally indefensible, a pure manifestation of that constitutional bugbear known as obscenity. Even though soft-core sex-exploitation films had been gradually pushing the envelope during the 1960s, the notion even among producers of such films that real-life sex would one day find its way onto American movie screens would have seemed like sheer science fiction right up to the end of the sexploitation era. Although illegal stag films depicting sex had been around since at least the 1920s, the convergence of publicly exhibited, 35 mm features with the illicit pleasures of a private Elk s lodge smoker was a cultural and legal development few would have anticipated.

Sexual Freedom in Denmark (1970)

Starting as a documentary on the sexually liberated culture of late-Sixties Denmark, Sexual Freedom in Denmark winds up incorporating major elements of the marriage manual form and even manages to squeeze in a montage of beaver loops and erotic art. All narrated with earnest pronouncements concerning the social and psychological benefits of sexual liberation, the movie, is a kind of mondo film dotted with occasional glimpses of actual sex. Tame by the standards of 1971, when adult loops and features would begin to flood certain metropolitan markets, the film was shocking enough in 1970 to instigate media attention and long lines at the box office.

Sexual Liberty Now! (1971)

After the national success of Sexual Freedom in Denmark, producer John Lamb leapt back into the fray, releasing Sexual Liberty Now! in the fall of 1971. Sexual Liberty takes a defensive posture, specifically focusing on the efforts of certain members of the President s Commission on Obscenity and Pornography to stamp out the menace of sexual expression in the United States. Pornography perhaps is a nuisance, the film s narrator intones toward the film s end, but it s certainly not a menace.

I first saw these documentaries in San Francisco at one of the adult theaters off Market Street in San Francisco back in the early 70s. I wanted to add them to my film collection and recommend the set to anyone that may want to get a glimpse into that era. I was born and raised in San Francisco and the attitudes in the film were the same as the attitudes regarding the "Sexual Revolution" in the "City" at that time. The documentary was made in the Netherlands and is in English. It is a Documentary and discussions regarding sex and how to enjoy sex are graphically depicted using both real models and illustrations. Well made and interesting. STRONG SEXUAL CONTENT! NOT A PORNO FLICK!

This is an excellent film, I just wish they would show more instead of a few bits and peices of the sex. It would be nice if they could or would give references to the films that they took their sources from so that if people like me wish to obtain them, they can.
