The history of porn industry

Pornography, contrary to some opinions, was not created in the 20th century in parallel to the development of the media industry. Today, it is mainly magazines, movies and photos that are intended to evoke sexual arousal. The history of pornography, however, is much older, almost as old as the history of mankind. Eroticism in art has always been present, just take a look at ancient sculptures and paintings – some of them still to this day surprise with their unrarmedness.

Erotic alphabet from 19th century

In a whole word, pornography has existed forever, but it was just in the twentieth century that people discovered how to make a lucrative business out of it, which would bring millions of profits. Thanks to the discovery of the film, pornography has become widespread, popular and above all public. At the very end of the 19th century, the first stripped scenes appeared in the film industry. The forerunner of this precedent was George Meiles creating in 1897 the movie „After the Ball”, which broke down the existing taboos. The first strictly pornographic film was made in 1908 and immediately became a huge scandal and caused quite a sensation.

How did the first porn movies look like?

Initially, pornographic films lasted about 10 – 12 minutes, and their plot was limited to five simple scenarios:

  • a story about a lonely woman during masturbation,
  • a story about a girl from a farm, surrounded by copulating animals,
  • a history of the doctor examining the patient,
  • a story of a burglar finding a sleeping woman,
  • a story about a naked woman in a bath in the lead role.

As you can see, some schemes have survived to this day, however, the duration of the films has been widely extended, and the quality of the films has been significantly improved, especially considering the growing popularity of porn movies in 3D!
