Design: Porn Parody Movie Posters

Back in the 1970’s and early 80’s, people actually went out in public to watch porn – no internet, no videos. There were small theaters in almost every medium size city in the US that would show double or triple features for a price a bit higher then the regular movies. It can only be blamed on the popularity of Deep Throat in 1972, the first real porn movie to break big. Movie stars would talk about seeing it on Johnny Carson, theaters were packed and suddenly it was fashionable to be seen watching porn. Things would quickly take a turn for the ridiculous with the advent of  xxx rated parodies of popular films. Most of these were simple comedies with only the barest nod to the original movies. They’re still being made today with higher production values but no real sense of humor (or so I’m told). These posters are about as slapdash as the movies themselves. I’ve included the real movie name for those of you under 40.
