The History of Sex on Film in Infographic Form

The History of Sex on Film in Infographic Form

As part of its "Spotlight on Sexploitation," Fandor created this nifty infographic which highlights Sex and the Cinema‘s history, tracking sex on screen from "The Kiss" in the earliest days of cinema to "Blue is the Warmest Color." 

As the smart folks at Fandor explain, "These boundary-pushing films arose with an air of sexual liberation in the 1960s. Sexploitation increasingly figured in the public eye as filmmakers took more risqué risks — even trying to be artistic! — until the early ’90s, when VCRs and cable TV brought outright porn fully into the privacy of homes."
