Perversion for Profit: Stark Nudity on Slick Paper

The sixties were a fun time. Remember all those great educational movies with overdone orchestral music you watched on rainy days at school?

Here's one I missed. It's sort of a 1965-version Reefer Madness about the porn industry, complete with "wooden white male authority figure" George Putnam, a popular Los Angeles newscaster of the time, solemnly warning us against "stark nudity on slick paper."
A flood-tide of filth is engulfing our country in the form of newsstand obscenity. It is threatening to pervert an entire generation of our American children. We know that once a person is perverted, it is practically impossible for the person to adjust to normal attitudes in regards to sex.
Watch the movie Perversion for Profit here.

Then, behold the power of editing.

The original film has been edited into a pro-porn piece. Putnam proudly tells us to "come join the fun!" in this edited version, called, appropriately, Come Join the Fun.

I recognized a few of the magazine titles shown. Perhaps the warning was true. Perhaps they did pervert an entire generation of American children. That would explain this blog, wouldn't it?
