CYBERSPACE - Goliath Books is now carrying Gretchen Kraut Collection’s History of German Porn. Among all peoples Germans are not exactly famous for pleasure, passion and fun, a spokesperson explained. Antique Roman writer Tacitus describes them as a tough and wild folk running naked through the wilderness," they added. But that’s not the whole story," the rep continued. Like all nations, Germans have dirty secrets - they love porn.

Germans are not really famous for their great passions or pleasures. Abroad, people like to watch them falling under the tables at carnival or at the October Fest, drunk and merry. Tacitus seems to have known this side. He tells tales of the ancestors of the Germans, in classical Rome. He found them a hard and wild tribe that loved to roam the wilderness, stark naked. Indestructible even then but not really prepared to enjoy lust and pleasure. For centuries thereafter, there was little more than yodelling beneath the leather pants. Their best-loved object, a tank-like car, still boasts its indestructible quality. Then, nobody believed that the Germans might indeed, have a very intimate relationship with pornography. What is that supposed to be? German pornography? After the war, porn was happily transferred outdoors, to Scandinavia, generously partaking in the nude bathing cult. Or it was banned to the German Democratic Republic, where allegedly, women were more willing than in the West. Dreaming was allowed, beyond the borders. There was however, still something left of the good old German wanderlust, spiced up with a little sado-masochism. Fantasizing in the style of the romantic fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm Hansel and Gretel locked up in the witch s house. What did go on in there? Is this typically German? Yes, it is. Only it is hard to see, as the Nazis had turned nude culture, which after all had been Germanic, having been invented in Germany, into erotic machinery. All steel-hard boys and Arian women, always willing to do what they were asked to do. Germany militarised the erotic, which was permitted to remain pornographic abroad. The time had come for Germans, characterized by war-time rape and a greatly reduced male population, to put their past skeletons in the closet. Indeed, the Germans had lost something very important. This book shows what they lost: the legendary roaring twenties, when after World War I they shook off the senselessness of the Age of the Kaiser like a drunken stupor. It was the time when photography commenced its victory march, and dared all, without shame. It was not before the revolutionary sixties that lust was raised its head once more. Until then, 8-mm trash films and mags rotted away in farm barns. German pornography found its subjects close to the bestial, close to the stables.

This book is ok but i wish it was put in a bigger size than a small paperback. It has pictures that i have never seen before & runs into the early 1960s. The photos are uncensored for the nude women collectors & there are some good images just not on every page + there is written text on every other page in German & English.

It is a piece of history...sex-history!

Kinky, shameless, humourous...after this time travel you'll see Germans in a new light!

This book is nothing you couldn't find anywhere else. Most of the sections are, if not outright wrong, misleading; there is no sense of fun about it, and in fact it's a depressing read. The pictures are not particularly interesting or unique, and there is nothing here except for an audience who is easily titillated...not that the collection is at all arousing. As a history, it fails. As an attempt at collecting erotica, it fails. The section on gay erotica is barely two pages, remarkable when the Weimar era is considered. Naturally, there is plenty of lesbian this-and-that. It's boring and unexceptional, and the book's construction is extremely poor, very small and hard to read. Save your money. This isn't worth half its asking price, and it will probably not keep anyone interested even once through. Overpriced and poorly-done.
