“As soon as moving cameras were invented people began using them to make pornographic films…”
So starts Taboo: The Beginning of Erotic Cinema – a one hour documentary that examines the earliest days of the dirty movie biz. As the quote suggests, Taboo argues that nude/erotic/pornographic films were some of the first expressions created with moving picture technology. But, that shouldn’t surprise anyone familiar with porn’s early adoption of video, digital and the Internet to produce and distribute their goods to wider and wider audiences at lower and lower costs.
While not a porno movie, Taboo is still full of enough moaning nudity to be NSFW.
