The Pornographer

Mano, D. Keith
December 1975
National Review;12/19/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 49, p1480
The article highlights the views of hard core porn filmmaker Lloyd Kaufman about his work and the issues concerning pornography. It describes how Kaufman and his partner Mike Herz keep solvent. Kaufman claims that he is neither a socialist nor right-wing, and his film "Divine Obsession" is not a propaganda for sex liberation. The U.S. Supreme Court decision on X-rated films, the public-private distinction, and the role of pornography in the growth of film as art are also discussed.
