Traces the reception of sexploitation film in the latter half of the 1960s, as pornography and obscenity begin to resonate publicly as national problems. It analyzes varied responses of audiences, critics, countercultural observers and researchers to the sexploitation film in the latter part of the decade, as the “adult film viewer” becomes an object of concern and anxiety, derision and curiosity.
