Sexytime is the book that pornoisseurs all over the world have anxiously been waiting for. Not that grade drooler, the porn addict, mind you, but the porn aesthete, the porn classicist who knows his stag film history and lives by the credo, Veni ergo sum.

An oversized coffee table book celebrating the art of the 1970s porn movie poster, Sexytime collects over a hundred of the most outrageously over-the-top porn movie posters of the era. It includes “classics” like The Sex-Ray Machine, Candy Goes to Hollywood, and The Senator’s Daughter starring such ’70s porn stalwarts as Annie Sprinkle, John Holmes, and Seka.

This is the book for those who harbor a healthy, passionate yet tortured curiosity and appreciation, in short, a total jones for retro design mixed with brazen sexuality, who want to discover a secret, blushing school of design that is uniquely controversial to this day. Selected with heat sensitive attention to detail and accompanied by a brain-ripping narration on the rise of “post-porn” by Jacques Boyreau, this collection of pristinely re-mastered movie posters from the golden age of American porn is a portrait of taboo-busting 1970s “porno chic” erotomania. Accept no substitutes.

Promotional Video by Jacques Boyreau:

Praise for Jacques Boyreau's Portable Grindhouse: The Lost Art of the VHS Box:

"This awesome picture book... [is] filled with a delightfully odd array of vintage video covers... VHS cassettes may be treated like toxic waste in the age of the Blu-ray, but Portable Grindhouse offers that micro minority who still remain faithful to their trusty VCR a long overdue reprieve." – Ronald Hart, PopMatters

"The packaging... is brilliant and the actual product is no less magnificent. The quality that Fantagraphics put into [Portable Grindhouse: The Lost Art of the VHS Box] is top-notch. The card and paper stock could not be more perfect. The high resolution pictures and scans of each of the films are almost like you are holding the original. ... This is a 'must-have' for genre fans, collectors and art lovers alike." – Cinesploitation

"Compiled by Portland, Oregon-based trash cinema expert Jacques Boyreau, Portable Grindhouse honors the pulp video era that inspired Quentin Tarantino." – Hugh Hart, Wired

"...[A] book as lovingly edited as this could only have been put together by someone whose appreciation for these objects is matched by a real love of cinema." – Matthew Caron, Vol. 1 Brooklyn
