Joe Sarno is my kind of director. Today, Film Movement has assembled Warm Nights Hot Pleasures, Confessions of a Young American Housewife and Sin in the Suburbs. All three films hit underground cinemas within a decade, but Sarno’s narrative never changed. Basically, it’s softcore porn about enticing the normies into foursomes and partner swapping. While that might have been taboo in the 60s and early 70s, the act is now a cottage industry on the Internet.
Vinegar Syndrome has been doing quite well with the Sarno releases they’ve put out. Hell, this isn’t the first Sarno release from Film Movement. That being said, this is the first release where I feel like a proper creative history is being displayed. When we discuss the American softcore pioneers, their work gets swept under the rug. It’s not pretty to talk about sex cinema types, but they helped influence the mainstream.
I have a larger piece about this that I’m working on now. Hopefully, it’ll go live by the end of the year.
