Today's audiences have become very jaded with assembly line, mass-produced and mass-distributed hardcore pornography. In the United States alone there are over 11,000 adult movies released each year - more than 20 times the mainstream movie production. This is in addition to the estimated 420 million porn pages on the internet. Smut has become easily accessible and is more tolerated by our liberal society. But way before the plastic cartridges you popped in your VCR or those shiny discs you inserted into your DVD player, there was a market for prurient activities captured on film only whispered about amongst the closest circle of friends. Marketing and producing stag films was highly illegal and so these films were all shot in secrecy. They also were not distributed in the typical fashion. A traveling operator, who might conceal his wares in a doctor's bag would bring his films and projector into town. He would typically organize a movie showing in the backroom or basement of an all-male social club or bar, where secrecy was assured. These vintage stag films or smokers as they were then called would be shown to an all-cash paying crowd, and immediately after the showing the operator would be on to another town. The operator and the audience could have gotten busted at any moment and even face jail time for such lascivious activities. It was the extreme illegality of stags that gave these films a certain excitement. Later, watching porn on a scratchy reel of 8mm film, projected onto a white sheet or a wall in a darkened room became the most profitable way of getting these films out to a wider audience. These movies were often advertised in the back pages of men's magazines as 'art films.' Possessing or selling these blue movies was still highly illegal and all the while the 'studios' producing them, who most often were a one-man band, involved in every aspect of production and distribution, faced prosecution by the Feds on many charges.
