There is an authoritative guide for every possible kind of movie except “adult” films. Adult Video News—the extraordinary trade journal that covers the adult industry—has filled this void with a superb collection of reviews of the best porno videos and DVDs. This book is for the aficionado of erotica, couples, viewers, and everyone in between.
The AVN Guide to the 500 Greatest Adult Films of All Timeincludes the magazine’s selection of “101 Greatest Adult Tapes of All Times” and much more. In addition, entertaining sidebars run throughout (e.g., Ten Best Couples Films, the Ten Funniest Titles, Ten Best Gonzo Flicks, Ten Best Gay Videos, Ten Best Euro Style Videos, Funniest Hollywood Takeovers, and more). It is a skillful compilation of professional reviews of the best the adult industry has produced, arranged by the commonly used categories—among them “Couples,” “Pro-Amateur,” “Specialty,” “Gonzo,” “Gay-Bi,” “Wall to Wall,” “Alternative,” and more. The 500 reviews were originally written as guides for retailers—so they are gritty, honest, and absolutely straightforward in their evaluation. They provide production details and other inside information rarely known outside the adult industry, including the advice AVN gave to retailers on stocking and marketing specific films.
