Porn Movies Never Looked This Good: Retro Posters From The Golden Era Of Adult Films (NSFW)

Adult entertainment is a massive industry that since its dawn has been heavily linked to controversy. However, despite its contents and the way it is negatively viewed by some, it is without doubt a successful and formidable business that includes man facets of creativity, from artistic direction to creative music scores, to the wide, varying levels of acting and even its full-fledged awards program.

But with the turn of the century and the seemingly unstoppable progression of technology and convenience—which go hand-in-hand—the porn industry has morphed into the innovative yet oversaturated and overexposed monster that it is today. Gone are the days of cheesy narratives, disco-inspired soundtracks and brilliantly detailed retro movie posters. Whether you’re from those times or not, the artwork of the adult film industry of back in the day can be enjoyed by all, and more importantly, can be enjoyed again thanks to the movie poster experts and curators at Westgate Gallery—the name is even derived from a seedy 70’s porn theater in Bangor, Maine.
