FLESHPOT is a guide to the genres, personalities and trends that have set screens aflame since the dawn of motion pictures — from the pioneering American pre-code talkies and the racy European imports of the forties and fifties, to hard-core and beyond!

With contributions from such authorities as Kenneth Anger and George Kuchar, FLESHPOT is a fascinating and informative introduction to some of cinema’s most notable sexual myth makers and taboo breakers; the legends and the brigands, the deified and the damned.

Also by Jack Stevenson: Land of a Thousand Balconies
