Deep Throat

I had a interesting/random conversation with a customer today.  He was an older gentleman.  He came in and was walking around and not really looking at anything.  I asked if he needed help finding anything.  He looked at me and smiled, and said, “you probably don’t have what I’m looking for.”  Go ahead and ask, I tell him.  He began telling me he’s looking for a movie, and it’s at least 40 years old.  I walk with him over to our classics section and I asked if he knew the name of it.  He said it was called Deep Throat.  I grabbed it and showed it to him.  He smiled even more.  He looked at the cover for a while, then looked at the back.  He said it was out of his price range at the moment, and I told him we always carry it if he would like to come back some other time.  He began talking to me about it.

He said, “I saw this forty years ago in the theater.  You weren’t even a thought in your mama’s mind!”  I chuckled.  “Not too long after I seen it, it was taken out of the theater, and the theater had closed down.  I later learned that it was taken off the shelves completely.”  I nodded along with him.  Being “young” in his eye, I assume he thought I didn’t know my porn history!  I told him I heard about the controversy of it all.  He asked, “There’s worse stuff out there night, right?” I nodded in agreement again.  “My how times have changed.”, he said.  He then told me he might be back for it..(if he couldn’t find it cheaper, of course)..and told me to have a great day.

It’s so strange how that movie back then was considered so taboo.  If you watched it now, you would probably find it dull compared to some of the hardcore movies and kinks out there now.

I definitely recommend seeing it if you haven’t!  If you’re a porn addict, like myself, you will enjoy the history of it.  It’s like being a movie buff and not seeing classics such as, The Godfather, or Casablanca.

And yes, the above photo is of me rocking my Deep Throat t-shirt!

“The End. And Deep Throat to you all.”
