Pulpy Porn Can Go All Night

Yesteryear's yearnings remain the domain of porno pulp -- lest we forget.

Pompeii Press was not a high profile imprint, and they clearly skimped on their covers.

Still, it's nice to see a snake finding employment in the world of terror.

Bestiality was a profitable niche in 70's and 80's porno pulp, and it benefited (legally) from being text-based, not image-based.

As there is now a thriving Zoo video, underground thanks to the internet, so, too, is there a thriving Zoo fiction renaissance.

Another popular pulp niche.

It was important for the publishers to indicate "New Book January 1979", for example, because the industry was rife with illegal reprints of old material.

Authors of these were usually paid between $100 and $300.

Terrific artwork, and a classic set-up not often emulated by visual porn industry.

Most incest-based pornography has focused on mother/son and daddy/daughter pairings (Kirdy Stevens' Taboo series is a prime example).

I think she's more interested in having her portrait painted than giving her fill attention to the business at hand. He looks a little too old for high school.

  1. I miss the days when a porno cover told you what to expect rather than these glossy portraits of goth models I see nowadays.

  2. Brigit Beauchamp seems to be my type of gal... assuming it's not a pseudonym.

    Why did you have to spoil it with the image of the dirty faggots.

  5. I always loved the old covers. They could definitely inspire you to check out a particular book.

  6. sneering (homo-phobic) snob -- not my speed, either, brother, but life happens elsewhere, too.

    I suggest you visit youporn or an appropriate newsgroup to get the bad taste out of your mouth.
