SMUT CAPITAL OF AMERICA

Can you guess the smut capital of America?



Thanks to BSD reader and professor of smut, Bernard, for passing this along.

  1. Let me see, hmmm.... I went to the 55th St Playhouse, The Adonis, Eros,
    and Variety Photoplays. All gone now. Pushed out and cleaned up. What
    happened to the Marquees? The Variety Photoplays should have been saved-so beautiful, the Eros was pretty cool too. After the Adonis was knocked down, pieces of it started showing up down on Houston street at this salvage yard. I remember walking by one day and there was a life size black and white poster of Jack Wrangler leaning against the fence. That was a beautiful theatre, glamorous and huge and dark. And fun!!! I saw great "art porn" at the Eros. I remember one movie. It was a mainly a blue sky with clouds and super imposed on the moving clouds were images of greek and roman sculpture cut in with live nude guys posing as greek statues. All the while some dude was narrating this text about the natural beauty of the male form down thru the centuries. So cool. If I wasn't so busy being blown maybe I'd be able to remember what the movie was... A fun book to read is "The Motion of Light in Water" by Samuel R. Delaney. It's about living on the lower east side in the '60s and being queer. Autobiographical, and gives a good look into the times and places that he haunted. Also worth reading by the same author is "Times Square Red, Times Square Blue" a lament of the passing of the 42nd st smut playhouses. Ah! The good ole days!!

  2. I was a donor on this movie. :) And you worked with the director of this, too, didn't you Colby? He's one of the writers on "Golden Gate"!
