Eduardo Cemano & the Birth of the New York City One-Day-Wonder Porno

Before Boogie Nights.
Before Deep Throat.

From the New York underground swinger set he emerged to transform adult filmmaking with a visionary zeal. With a handheld camera he adored naked, copulating bodies. With a sharp intelligence he satirized the same sexual revolution that enabled him. He made two one-day wonders, three adult films, then vanished.

Review by: eduardo cemano on Nov. 30, 2011 : (no rating)
This ebook was the most enlightening of all that I have read about the very beginning of the so called "PORN INDUSTRY".
To my knowledge before Eduardo Cemano's full length Feature Films depicting hard core sex in a humorous, story oriented, well photographed, and BEAUTIFULLY scored with classical music there were just cheap sleazy sexual depictions that catered only to the very prurient masturbatory "RAIN COAT CROWD".
I have been a fan of well made erotic feature films since the beginning of their legality but never knew about the pioneers that braved the laws of the time to create films that showed that sex was fun to watch and need not BE DIRTY.
I look forward Mr. Cemano's later works to see how this groundbreaking film maker developed his artistry and point of view.
