Introduced by Karl McCool of Dirty Looks NYC


A landmark of erotic cinema, Deep Throat is credited for kicking off the “porno chic” trend of the early 1970’s. The unlikely story of a woman whose clitoris is located in her throat, the film found a popular audience amongst celebrities, film critics and average Americans alike. Perhaps the most iconic X-rated film ever made, Deep Throat reinforced a hetero-normative, phallic oriented vision of sexuality and received backlash from conservative sectors of society as well as the more liberal minded. The film’s star eventually denounced her role in the film and began a crusade against pornography in the 1980s.
