SMUTTY LITTLE MOVIES: THE CREATION AND REGULATION OF ADULT VIDEO. Peter Alilunas. University of California Press, Berkeley, 2016. 306 pp. with 22 ills. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780520291713 In English.
Publisher's description: Smutty Little Movies traces the adult film industry's transition from celluloid to home video beginning in the late 1970s and examines the cultural and legal efforts to regulate, contain, limit, or eradicate pornography. Drawing on a wide variety of materials, Smutty Little Movies de-centers the film text in favor of industry histories and contexts. In so doing, the book argues that the struggles to contain and regulate pleasure represent a primary starting point for situating adult video's place in a larger history, not just of pornography, but of media history as a whole.
