Sexploitation - For science only











In the late 60's, US obscenity laws were tested by the Swedish film, I Am Curious (Yellow). Because of the ruling by the US Supreme Court, allowing the film on the basis of its educational context, the late 1960s and early 70's saw a number of sexploitation films which were widely referred to as "white coaters" because of the fact that a doctor would give an introduction to the graphic content, dressed in a white coat. Language of Love and other Swedish and American films capitalized on this idea until the laws were relaxed.
