Vintage Sexploitation Posters

Vintage Sexploitation Posters
Consenting Adults
A lot of the movies featured on The B-Raters are exploitative by nature. We are particularly fans of the Bruceploitation sub-genre, as well as the sexploitation slashers of the 1980s and beyond. A lot of the movies we watch were filmed in the '70s and '80s when mainstream standards were different and exploitation flicks remained very much underground.

These images of sexploitation cover art from the 1960s and '70s recall those times in lurid detail. This was before the advent of the VCR, which revolutionized the adult entertainment field, so these materials were only seen by a comparatively handful (ahem) of people in their time. This era is widely remembered as the time of sexual revolution in America and many of these depict a "free-love" environment in alignment with other hippy drivel.

What I find most striking is that almost none of these images are in any way shocking to me; they seem tame by almost any standards although they are suggestive and some are provocative. Maybe they didn't generate much controversy when they were first released, either. I only recognized the names of two or three of the movies featured (I swear!) and I don't think they are all pornographic, some are merely sleazy.
