The Whiz Bang History of Dykesploitation

Girl-on-girl action has always been one of the staples of straight porn and erotica. There were scads of trashy lezzie/bi-girl swinging features churned out in the ’60s and ’70s, before the rise of hard-core porn. We wouldn’t exactly embrace these films as positive portrayals of lesbian or bi life (like their Hollywood counterparts, the exploitation studios had little sympathy for their dyke protagonists). But from our current historical distance, these trashy gems offer loads of campy entertainment value.

Enjoy the sneak peek above (an ad design from the original exhibitor's press kit for That Tender Touch) and stay tuned for The Whiz Bang Illustrated History of Dykesploitation. Coming soon!
