From 1965 to 1975, an array of journals, magazines, fanzines, and underground presses were the voice of a dramatic sexual revolution. In Europe and the United States, this sex press consisted of publications such as Other Scenes, Yellow Dog, Actuel, Suck, The Body, and Screwsome of which were fully dedicated to sex, while others also engaged with the times most riveting topical issues, including politics, human rights, war, womens rights, and gay and lesbian rights. Showcasing art from the most revolutionary publications of the era, the book traces the exuberant sexual liberation of the 1960s and then moves into the mid-1970s, with its more codified form of pornography. Illustrated by a vivid collection of full-page facsimiles, Sex Press offers a compelling visual tour through an extraordinary period of experimentation, creativity, and sexual freedom.
