Sexytime is a new book & art show that pornoisseurs all over the world have anxiously been waiting for. Celebrating the art of the 1970s porn movie poster, this is the book & exhibition for those who harbor a healthy, passionate yet tortured curiosity and appreciation for retro design mixed with brazen sexuality that is uniquely controversial to this day. Selected with heat sensitive attention to detail and accompanied by a brain-ripping narration on the rise of “post-porn” by Jacques Boyreau, this collection of pristinely re-mastered movie posters from the golden age of American porn is a portrait of taboo-busting 1970s “porno chic” erotomania. “The idea of Sexytime is that these posters are more satisfying than the movies they advertise. The peculiar freedom of these posters’ no-holds-barred innuendos and rehashed figure studies of classic art-flesh is a bit of a perfect crime. They do not sell a ticket to the general public yet they are meant for the general public to see... As such, they occupy a public vortex, a space alive with all the possibilities of misrecognition, including the ‘error’ of wanting the poster without wanting the movie.”
