Summary/Abstract: Thanks to legal and economic reasons the British market of pornographic films seems like a very interesting material for a case study, since fully legal distribution of adult films lasted only about a decade before it was wiped out by the Internet. The main aim of the article is to reconstruct the mechanisms of production and distribution of pornography in the UK before the Internet era and confront methods used by adult movie producers with those used by the makers of traditional movies. Most of the information is based on an interview conducted by the author with a former employee of Private Media Group, one of the biggest providers of pornography in Europe.
