Pornography is sexually explicit material, proliferated in the form of images, writings and films. It began to enter the culture of Europe at an gradual level during the rise of Renaissance humanism, but its modern more explicit commerical form came to the fore in the 19th century. It was for the most part an underground and illegal fetish until the late 1960s after the sexual revolution, when Denmark became the first country to legalise it in 1969. Some differentiate between artistic nude works and crude explicit pornography.

The hardcore pornography industry in film and image format is in particular associated with the United States and many of the most powerful people within the industry in ownership and distribution roles have been Ashkenazi Jews. San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles is to the pornographic industry, what Hollywood is to the film industry. It began to popularise between the 1950s-1970s with magazines such as Playboy, Penthouse and Hustler. Contemporary hardcore film pornography began in the late 1970s with Lasse Braun leading the way. Since then, now on the internet, the material has become more and more perverted. The pornography industry also heavily promotes miscegenation, however while they will make endless "blacks on blondes" porn, they will never produce "Palestinian on Jew" porn.


Previously in the West, there were widespread anti-obscenity laws. These were broken down gradually in the first half of the 20th century by Jews in the United States, various social liberals and others of a cosmopolitan disposition. Laws of this kind are still in place in many Muslim countries, China and some African countries where such perversions are not tolerated, but since the advent of the internet it has become more difficult to stop widespread access to the most illict pornography. There have been some legal successes in Europe in recent times, as pornography was banned in 2009 in the Ukraine.


The ethnic flavour of prewar erotica distribution is still with us, although, except for extreme right-wing hate groups, critics of sexual explicitness do not overtly exploit the fact. Many distributors of erotica are Jewish, even though very few sons and daughters of the people whose careers are surveyed here have adopted their parents' careers.

The only reason that Jews are in pornography is that we think that Christ sucks. Catholicism sucks. We don’t believe in authoritarianism.
—Al Goldstein, publisher of pornography magazine Screw.[1]
Extending the subversive thesis, Jewish involvement in the X-rated industry can be seen as a proverbial two fingers to the entire WASP establishment in America. Pornography thus becomes a way of defiling Christian culture and, as it penetrates to the very heart of the American mainstream (and is no doubt consumed by those very same WASPs), its subversive character becomes more charged. Porn is no longer of the ‘what the Butler saw’ voyeuristic type; instead, it is driven to new extremes of portrayal that stretch the boundaries of the porn aesthetic.
