BOOK DESCRIPTION

Among all peoples Germans are not exactly famous for pleasure, passion and fun. Antique Roman writer Tacitus describes them as a tough and wild folk running naked through the wilderness. Several centuries later, they wear lederhosen, eat Schnitzel and drive unkaputtable cars. But that’s not the whole story.


Like all nations Germans have dirty secrets – they love porn!


This stunning collection from the Gretchen Kraut Archives gathers amazing vintage photos from the early days of porn photography in the 19th century to the lascivious Twenties, from the crazy 1930s to the Swinging Sixties.


Learn about the good old days when images of sex and nudity were sensational and bold, playful and provocative, hot and forbidden.
