Footage

These 10 films are included in their entirety on the B disc of the DVD, a running time of over 3 hours. Of the hundreds of films we screened, these were some of the most interesting, and I'm happy to finally be able to make them available. The excerpts here are 3 to 5 minutes long.

AS BOYS GROW
AS BOYS GROW was the only sex-ed film we found (pre 1970) that spoke directly about physical details. It was produced under the belief that accurate information helps a teenager evolve through adolescence by providing reassuring explanations for real life experiences.



MOLLY GROWS UP
MOLLY GROWS UP was the only film we found that speaks directly of periods and how a girl should behave while having her period. I spoke with women who saw the film in school, and they said they began referring to their periods as their "Molly" ("Did you get your Molly yet?")



SOCIAL SEX ATTITUDES IN ADOLESCENCE
SOCIAL SEX ATTITUDES IN ADOLESCENCE seems to be designed to help parents understand their kids, though our impression is that it was produced for a teenage audience. It promotes communication and understanding, tracing a boy and a girl through various dating scenarios up until they get together and eventually marry.



IN DEFENSE OF A NATION
IN DEFENSE OF A NATION was produced by the US Army during the late 30's. I presents shocking details of VD rates from 1820 to 1940 and ends up denouncing prostitution with fascinating portrayals of a 30's view of prostitutes and pimps.



EASY TO GET
EASY TO GET is a result of the segregation of soldiers during World War 2. The Army produced white films for white soldiers and black films for black soldiers. This clip has amazing acting and dancing. The only white character is the doctor who tells the soldiers they have VD.



KNOW FOR SURE
KNOW FOR SURE is the white equivalent of EASY TO GET. It includes a demonstration of how to put on a rubber. The only black character is the woman who greets the athletes at the whore house.



DANCE LITTLE CHILDREN
DANCE LITTLE CHILDREN was produced by the Kansas State Board of Health in 1961. A rich kid shares VD with an innocent girl from a poor family. A public health official questions kids one by one about exactly who they had sex with and then tracks them down one by one.



THE INNOCENT PARTY
THE INNOCENT PARTY produced by the Kansas State Board of Health in 1959. A one night with a city slut stand results in a sweet fiance getting VD.



PERVERSION FOR PROFIT
PERVERSION FOR PROFIT was produced by the Citizens for Decent Literature, a Christian group devoted to stamping out girly magazines, nudist magazines, sex tinged adventure magazines, not to mention erotic literature.



PRINTED POISON
PRINTED POISON, also produced by Citizens for Decent Literature, is a film noir equivalent of PERVERSION FOR PROFIT. The montage of offending magazines is a classic.
