Robert Rosen’s Beaver Street is an extremely engaging account of the rise of pornography in New York City, the United States and the world.
How did I not know about Traci Lords? You’ll have to read the book to find out why all, but one, of her pornography films are banned in the United States. In addition to Lords, Rosen chronicles the rise and fall of ‘Free Phone Sex’. The link between porn, Marvel Comics' Captain America and Stan Lee. The link between porn and the rise of Mario Puzo and The Godfather. And a lot more.
Rosen said it well when he related that pornography is about “[...] using sex to separate people from their money.”
