Beware, children, girlie magazines are a narcotic that leads to communism and which opens the doors to homosexual hankerings and sadistic cravings — all at the expense of the taxpayer — and society, which bears the burden of rape, murder and venereal disease.

Oh, the glamorous life of an adult webmaster: it is 7:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning and I'm preparing to leave for Las Vegas with my lovely wife Dawn to attend the XBIZ Summer Forum and XFANZ Expo. While enjoying my morning coffee and email, I am also going through the latest recordings on my office DVR, which includes a short film recently aired on TCM entitled "Perversion for Profit."

Produced in 1965 by the Charles Keating-backed Citizens for Decent Literature, Perversion for Profit portrays "the floodtide of filth that is engulfing our country," in a light that when viewed by today's audiences seems laughably primitive and ill informed — much as how the 1936 film Reefer Madness portrayed marijuana use as inevitably leading to murder.

I love these kinds of films, not only for their artistic representation of outdated social mores, but also for the true slice of Americana and a forgotten time that they reveal, and I thought that I’d share this one with you. It discusses Supreme Court rulings, community standards and anti-porn activism — describing porn as a two billion dollar racket that promotes moral decay and the decline of civilization.

"We know that once a person is perverted, it is practically impossible for that person to adjust to normal attitudes in regards to sex," narrator George Putnam, described as an outstanding news reporter, stated, detailing how regardless of whom originally purchases the pornographic materials, "75 to 90 percent of it ends up in the hands of our children."

"Now, you might ask yourself, 'Why this sudden concern? Pornography and sex deviation have always been with mankind.' This is true. But, now, consider another fact: never in the history of the world have the merchants of obscenity, the teachers of unnatural sex acts, had available to them the modern facilities for disseminating this filth," Putnam continued. "High-speed presses, rapid transportation, mass distribution: all have combined to put the vilest obscenity within reach of every man, woman, and child in the country."

Yes, the high-speed printing press, America's new highway system and the U.S. Mail — rather than the Internet — are the technological villains here.

Highlighting the widespread availability of "girlie" and "nudist" magazines, which demonstrate a "preoccupation with the female breast to the point where it has become a fetish," Putnam characterized an image of a woman's butt as "appealing to sodomites," while tight-fitting boots, riding crops and burning cigarettes hint at sadistic overtones.

"And then we come to a terribly sad indictment of our society," Putnam said. "The so-called 'physique' group of publications."

Putnam warns young men that the magazines they are turning to for instruction in bodybuilding and nutrition are really tools for luring them into homosexual perversion.

"'Today's conquest' they say, 'is tomorrow's competition," Putnam revealed as the true slogan of homosexuals out to degrade our youth — displaying a series of shocking images that depict "the tender age at which homosexuals prefer their conquests."

"This moral decay weakens our resistance to the onslaught of the communist masters of deceit," Putnam continued — little realizing how sagely his words foreshadowed the influence of Russian webmasters in spreading adult entertainment across the Internet — right into the homes of wholesome American families.

Surprised that it has taken me this long to uncover such a gem of social intolerance, this author wholeheartedly encourages all operators in the adult entertainment industry to watch Perversion for Profit — available as a free download from the Internet Archive.

And remember, parents, do not let smut peddlers lure your daughters into lesbianism — keep them away from stimulating materials so they can enjoy a happily married life.
