Since the dawn of human evolution, artists have explored the sexual act - from primitive markings on cave walls and ancient Grecian ceramics, to the more sophisticated forms of Japanese Shunga or Vātsyāyana's Kama Sutra. With the advent of the photographic camera, coitus was depicted with a realism hitherto unseen. Yet, there exists a common misconception that 'XXX' photography is a post-modern phenomenon. Vintage Hardcore dispels this rumor, in a surprising and sometimes wildly shocking collection of rare vintage sex photos. From the very naughtiest of the 1900s to the super-swingingest of the 1960s, this book is everything your grandparents and great-grandparents tried to keep secret - until now.
