Oh. My. God. A girlfriend and I decided to see a porn-umentary for Valentine's Day. Has anyone seen this?

It isn't showing here in the heartland yet; hopefully I'll get to catch it soon.

I'm ignorant. I had to google to see what this was.

Interesting. I never saw the original film, but heard about it from my peers back then. The talented (in a way) now-dead lady who starred in it later campaigned against the film and said she'd been raped the whole time, although that claim was suspect. The male lead (so to speak) is now a real estate agent and born-again Christian. Most of the money that the film made went to the Mafia interests that controlled the porn theaters, so those friends of mine who were enjoying this revolutionary flick were feeding crime lords the whole time.

Just all kinds of great little ironies wrapped up in this one.

Yeah, they talked about all that in documentary. I have never seen Deep Throat from beginning to end, but I have seen enough to know that Linda Lovelace was a very impressive cocksucker. I was really just shocked at how much it sucked. Every review I've read practically goes down on the film - I thought it was poorly constructed, confused (and not in the good, engaging in multiple ideas kind of way), kind of sexist and honestly, just stupid. They have their narrator (Dennis Hopper, by the way) and their subjects yakking about how great porn is, because before porn we were all inhibited about our sexuality (yes, this is their contention), and people didn't know how babies were made. Seriously. While they are trumpeting a movie that locates a woman's clitoris on the inside of her NECK. Yeah. This is engaging with sex in a frank and honest way.
Also - I read "Ordeal" when I was a child, and for a kid that is pretty traumatizing. LL's claims are very suspect - but I think you would have to be pretty twisted to make it all up. And what she detailed in the book was that which would not help her in life to do anything, ever. The way they constructed LL really pissed me off.

That and talking about "feminist censors." Protest is not censorship. Idiots.
I know. I rant. I really like movies. And I was truly prepared to like this - I really wanted to like it. And they ruined it by making it stupid.

I saw the original, so I'm excused from the documentary.

I thought the premise for Deep Throat was just goofy, but I have since come to believe that some uvulas are special. :O

I didn't know much about sex when I saw the original Deep Throat in the 70's. I was drunk, stoned, and paranoid since me and a few underage budies had snuck into the theatre to see it. However, even in my altered state at the time I knew that A: What she was doing was not normal and B: She was at least as stoned when she made the movie as I was when I watched it.

So what's changed in 30 years? Back then, porn producers wanted us to beleive that a woman's clitoris could be in her throat. Nowadays, Seymore Butts want us to believe it's up her ass.....

Oh. My. God. A girlfriend and I decided to see a porn-umentary for Valentine's Day. Has anyone seen this?i've heard about it, but i'm hesitant about seeing it. i have the feeling it was one of those "the cultural impact of deep throat" type documentaries.


I have never seen Deep Throat from beginning to end, but I have seen enough to know that Linda Lovelace was a very impressive cocksucker.you didn't miss anything by not watching the film. Deep Throat was notable for it impact and popularity, but as far as porn films go. IMO, the film itself was vastly overrated when compared to some of the better porn films of that era.


I thought it was poorly constructed, confused (and not in the good, engaging in multiple ideas kind of way), kind of sexist and honestly, just stupid. They have their narrator (Dennis Hopper, by the way) and their subjects yakking about how great porn is, because before porn we were all inhibited about our sexuality (yes, this is their contention), and people didn't know how babies were made.spoiler! you just ruined it. seriously, you just confirmed my worst fears. i was afraid it was going to be something along those lines. i was hoping the movie would be more along the lines of investigating some of the allegations of her book like grilling some of the celebrities such as Hugh Hefner and his interest in beastiality.


Also - I read "Ordeal" when I was a child, and for a kid that is pretty traumatizing. LL's claims are very suspect - but I think you would have to be pretty twisted to make it all up.i read the book also. for me, the most emotionally scarring part was reading about her relationship with sammy "mr. entertainment" davis jr. how could he bang that hag? he's sammy davis jr for crying out loud. i used to love his songs. now, i find them creepy. sigh..."the candyman" just doesn't sound the same anymore.

seriously, i don't know what to believe about her book. she could have been motivated by a loaded saturday night special held to her head or she could very well be pretty twisted. after all, she did screw a dog on film. so, who knows the depth of her addiction or paraphillas. OTOH, she could have written her books simply as blatant opportunism.


And what she detailed in the book was that which would not help her in life to do anything, ever. The way they constructed LL really pissed me off.how did they portray her? surely, it couldn't have been any worst than her own book.


So what's changed in 30 years? Back then, porn producers wanted us to beleive that a woman's clitoris could be in her throat. Nowadays, Seymore Butts want us to believe it's up her ass.....another thing is that porn actress were not as young or as gung-ho as they are today. nowadays, you have 18-21 y.o. doing DAP and ATM at the drop of a hat. the whole porn career path is all shot to hell.

Precisely. And it sucked. Metaphorically speaking. The only thing worse is seeing the barrage of TV movies lately that trumpet the rise of Playboy. Cause, yeah. Hugh Hefner and Larry Flint. Fucking visionaries.


you didn't miss anything by not watching the film. Deep Throat was notable for it impact and popularity, but as far as porn films go. IMO, the film itself was vastly overrated when compared to some of the better porn films of that era.
So you weren't even a little impressed? Now I just feel naive.


i read the book also. for me, the most emotionally scarring part was reading about her relationship with sammy "mr. entertainment" davis jr. how could he bang that hag? he's sammy davis jr for crying out loud. i used to love his songs. now, i find them creepy. sigh..."the candyman" just doesn't sound the same anymore.
Ahhh! Shut up! And really. Like Sammy was so fucking hot. Come on. I think that she sucked cock at least as well as he sings.

In terms of blatant opportunism... I'm not sure how far writing about her dogfucking got her in her life. Well, actually I am. Nowhere.


how did they portray her? surely, it couldn't have been any worst than her own book.
Well that would depend on what you mean by worse. Remember when we talked about objectifying women? She is more of an object in the doc. than in the porn flick. So much so that it is hard to explain.


another thing is that porn actress were not as young or as gung-ho as they are today. nowadays, you have 18-21 y.o. doing DAP and ATM at the drop of a hat. the whole porn career path is all shot to hell.
Ahhh! Again! Now you sound like Susan Faludi. And that's just freaking me right out.

I really like cheesy 70's porn films with funk soundtracks, but Deep Throat is not one of my favorites. Nobody seemed to trim their pubes back then though..... :(

The 70's film I liked best was "Bad Barbara." The subtitle was "All She Wanted Was a Taste of Freedom." She was a sociology student at some CA university doing her term paper on sexual subcultures. She found them all for a good range of action. Barbara ends up doing her prof while he says, "It's all valid information." Cute actress and a fun premise. :)

Dude - have you even read any of the posts here? How much hot, cyber sex action have you seen in my posts? Pretty much none?

We've established here that I am a mutant, with a large puss filled sack covering one of my eyes, that moves a little whenever I blink causing dribbles of puss to run down my face, and I have a genetic defect that causes my nose to bleed nearly constantly. If that weren't enough, my lower lip is abnormally distended and all the blood from my nose drains into it, so I'm always making slurpy noises as I drink my own nose blood all day. And I haven't even begun on the weight issues or the running sores on my thighs. So nobody here wants to hear about hot Jenny action.

oh wow, this is an old thread (I found it while looking for another one entirely). It deserves a revival if only to share my experience that deep throat was the very first porno I ever saw! Sometime after Linda Lovelace was getting eaten out (while sitting on the table and smoking a cig, "Do you mind if I smoke?" she asks "while your eating?" haha

anyhow, shortly after that there's a scene where someone is getting it doggy style and the guy pulls out and nutz all over her back. I said, "Ewwwww! What's all that white stuff?"

I will not 'fess up to how young I was.:-[
