Vintage Erotica Anno 1920 / Various


As we enter the third millennium, we tend to believe that eroticism, and its cinema in particular, was born in the late 60’s. In order to refute this confabulation, the Vintage Erotica collection has decided to unveil the physical attributes that our grandfathers exhibited with wealth and good-nature on their reels. After the horrors of the First World War, a sultry madness takes hold of the French society that no authority can stop. The clandestine cinema is commercialized at the back of specialized booksellers and whorehouses for very delighted customers, through short films.

Costumed as priests and nuns, ballet dancers, satyrs, sparrow, apes, telegraph operator, in monk or in bellboy, never mind, everything is a pretext to describe love affairs which crudeness and humor have nothing to envy to the contemporary porn cinema.
