Walter Matthau didn't have to look at it to make his decision, why did they?

There is a chapter devoted to "Movie Day" in Bob Woodward's "The Brethren," that is nothing short of hilarious. One one occasion, Justice Potter Stewart, who once famously said he couldn't define "obscenity" but said, "I know it when I see it" had to move his chair right up to the screen because of his declining vision in old age. Justice Marshall started heckling him from the back, "Do you see it yet? Do you see it?"

Great stuff if you can get your hands on a copy.

I'm reminded of that scene in Porky's 2.

Yeah, I remember reading that.  And some of the clerks who were watching would start shouting "That's it! That's it!!" whenever a particularly raunchy scene would appear on the screen.

Did they all pitch in to get a big bucket of fried chicken and some sodas?

70's pr0n. Probably "Behind the Green Door" or "I am Curious Yellow" or some other stuff like that.

Now THAT's effective "Team-Building".
Notice the low, low, low number of members being fired or leaving the team for other employment.  You just don't get that anymore.

"Who says I don't?"

How would you go about selecting which porn to watch in the first place?  That filter alone decides much of what follows:  softcore skinmax stuff = porn is harmless.  "Bad Bear Bondage Explosion VI" = humanity is doomed.
 
2014-08-22 12:51:50 PM  
I'm just trying to imagine a time when you could watch ALL OF THE PORN in 1 day a year.

Now, one day a year won't get you through all the porn featuring women who fill their panties with cake and sit in it.

/Or so they tell me.

Ruth Ginsberg was invited to watch once.  She took one look and, to us,  bade her farewells.

Green Door is more of an historical thing these days-- too tame. Some guys in my college townhouse rented it one night and were disappointed. But then, these were the same guys who bought Madonna's sex book, which proves that college only guarantees the *opportunity* to learn critical thinking.

Is watching porn actually something that non-sexually involved men get together and do?  That just seems...not a casual group activity.

If Jerry Springer taught us nothing else (and it hasn't), there is no such thing as someone too ugly to have sex.

I assumed they only watched films that were challenged, not every film that came out.

But hey, maybe they just did a "casual Fridays" thing each week.

Of course it was awkward, it was hairy, lowbudget '60s porn. How graceful would you expect it to be?

The 70's were the heady days of pr0n, long before something like this fresh, exotic bukkake that you extol arrived on the scene.

They were the days when men would congregate in small, smoke-filled theaters, having arrived there under the darkness of night, wearing a trenchcoat and a fedora pulled low over their shifty eyes, and ducked into the dank, fetid theater after slipping the obscured box office attendant a five dollar bill that was crawling with unseen microbes of sweat, sex, and shame.

It was fun to bring a squirt gun to the theater filled with dish washing liquid.

/I'm outta here.

My guess is that it was made up of stuff that various councils (when communities had them to decide what was okay and not-okay to show in theaters) had banned for being "obscene", from "Last Tango in Paris" to whatever the nudie theaters were showing.
