5.0 out of 5 stars In the good old days when anything goes!
Some people think sex was invented in the 1960's, this series of French shorts prove otherwise. Dating between 1905 and 1930 these explicit films, shown in brothels, offer a diversity of acts! There is even an amusing cartoon at the end. This collection of erotica is a must for any collector.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting
Poor lighting, not very good camera angles, nothing dyed, bleached, implanted or shaved, all go to make this collection of shorts enjoyable

For those interested, this StrandReleasing DVD plays on Region 2 equipment. My DVD reader shows that it is multi-regional for regions 1,2,3,4,5 and 6. I wish sellers would give accurate information on region coding. Many sellers list DVD's as a specific region when in fact they are either region free or multi-regional.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charmingly naïve, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GOOD OLD NAUGHTY DAYS (DVD)
My advice is, if you are easily offended by scenes of sexual penetration, and oral sex, then don't buy this DVD. BUT, as the heading says, it is "charmingly naïve".

These shorts were made in the early 1920s before the advent of sound, the fumblings and hurried sexual encounters compress into a few minutes what today would take a film maker hours. Although explicit, there is never anything nasty about the films, in fact, some of them are funny. Most of the actors seem bemused by their performance. Its strange to think that all the actors are probably long dead now, but they have left a legacy of what tittilated our great grand-parents. These films would probably have been either 16mm or 9mm, and it is to the credit of the people who transferred the originals onto DVD, though it is obvious that they were originally on film.

Would I give this as a present to a maiden aunt? Definitely not! But as compared with the pornography readily available on the Internet today, this really is tame stuff, and in a way a charming historical record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Naughty but History, 21 May 2014

This collection is not great but in Historical terms is priceless. It does open the questions of Women's exploitation however. It was a different age with different values and whilst we should not condone male dominance when there was much hardship, it will give a glimpse behind a curtain that many would not want to see. It is, in the end, refreshing to know what existed over 100 years ago. For those then who may have regarded the great and good as above this there were some prominent dignitaries like Sir Arthur Sullivan and Frederic Delius who would visit brothels in Paris and pay for it this erotica and the reality. It has always existed and was the modern equivalent to the Japanese pillow books. The working man and woman on the other hand might have been complicit by knowing and thinking this was what life was like for the rich. Not a set of movies for the aged Aunt or the squeamish or if you are likely to be outraged. For those interested in cinema it is a surprise that these exist and so much trouble was taken in the making of these films. It was one of the official selections for the Cannes Film Festival in 2002 but I doubt if it won any awards.

Make no mistake about it, this is certainly pornographic, picturing a variety of attractive ladies, including some nuns, removing all their clothes and indulging in all kinds of 'naughty' encounters. However, considering these escapades were all filmed during the nineteen twenties, when women were much less equal with their male counterparts than they now are, it's quite remarkable how the 'girls' are pictured here as always coming out on top, so to speak, with all the men depicted as a bunch of incompetent fools who have to be taught how to do it. It seems also that the nuns main function was to school the priests concerning how to perform properly.

Considering the age of this black and white production from the time of silent films, it's in remarkably good shape and readily watchable. Whereas, like everything else, pornography can degenerate into the realm of abuse, there's no hint of that here. The message seems to be: what we are doing is all very natural, decent and enjoyable; so please come along and enjoy yourselves with us without fear or favour and how silly it is to try and cut oneself off from the natural things in life.

5.0 out of 5 stars old style dirty fun, 21 Jan 2013

This review is from: GOOD OLD NAUGHTY DAYS (DVD)
What an excellent collection , showing that our grand parents werent really that straight laced [ and in the days before proper birth control too ] . In these silent films they really go for it , especially in the orgy scenes where there is any thing goes . At times shocking , hysterical but always entertaining . If you love vintage porn / sex history or just watching a little smut this is for you . Definately prooves that sex wasnt invented in the 1960s .

5.0 out of 5 stars Naughty naughty, ohh la la!, 28 May 2014

This review is from: GOOD OLD NAUGHTY DAYS (DVD)
Well, they certainly knew a thing or two (or more) back then didn't they? Got this today. Really full on stuff, a couple of the gents are rather well-endowed too. Good to see an age when women didn't shave between their legs, so much sexier. Very racy in places, but I won't spoil it for you! Quite outrageous stuff, and good to have short films rather than prolonged efforts which can get rather boring after a while. Considering the age of these films, the re-mastering brings them out as clear as they could possibly be. Good sexy purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Old Naughty Days, 6 Sep 2013
This review is from: GOOD OLD NAUGHTY DAYS (DVD)
This DVD is worth watching, it's very sexually explicit and hits the right spot, made before the days of plastic boobs and shaven bits. Must have been highly forbidden back in the early days of film. Worth a buy and very sellable afterwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ooh! I say !., 5 Sep 2014

This review is from: GOOD OLD NAUGHTY DAYS (DVD)
Just as the film title says but good to know that our forebearers we're not as strait laced as it was painted.if someone is offended by scenes of oral sex etc, then DON'T buy this DVD , although what you do see is very mild compared to porn of today's standard . The film is obviously bit grainy at times but it adds to the uniqueness of the eras that the 'shorts' were filmed. Also the written narrative is informative of why & where these film was shown. All in all a good buy for open minded people.

4.0 out of 5 stars which was fine, and generally performed by amateur actors and actresses, 4 Aug 2014

This review is from: GOOD OLD NAUGHTY DAYS (DVD)
A very interesting set of films. Very graphic, which was fine, and generally performed by amateur actors and actresses, which was very refreshing. The film quality was reasonably good, all things considered. Hopefully a second batch of similar films might be in the offing.
