The Ghost Of Al Goldstein

The PORN PEOPLE by Bob Hoddeson is an interesting document. In 1974 when it was published the American sex industry was at the beginning of a new stage. A movement had gained traction that was using the First Amendment to muddy the water between exploitation and free expression. The aesthetic was a combination of the exploitive behind closed doors posed era of the mail order porn of the 1950ʼs and the “let your free flag flyʼ bohemian fashion of the swinging 60ʼs.
