I just learned that Cinemax On Demand has stopped showing softporn cable programming three days ago.  Will the same go for HBO On Demand and The Movie Channel On Demand sometime in the future?

I vaguely remember something called Taxi Cab Confessions from when I really little on HBO.

Kubrick, Nolan, Hitchcock, Tarantino, Wan, Iñárritu, Scorsese, Chaplin - the elite

I believe in the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

I didn't have any of those channels.  or I wasn't supposed to.  Sometimes one of them would kinda sorta come in partially blurred and staticy. 

For the most part though, I relied on USA Up All Night for my skin flicks (with the added bonus of a lot of bad comedy to go with them.)

It's really cool to hear the almost universal experiences of people across the world sneaking downstairs late at night to watch adult things on TV.  I'm very impressed by the guerilla antics some of you got up to, setting time record late at night and retrieving the tape early in the morning!

In Australia, hard porn showing insertion is illegal in general; hardcore material can only be sold in registered outlets (R Restricted rated) with closed doors and signs outside saying it is restricted, or in Queensland, where a lot of thing are legal, it seems.

Pay TV didn't exist in Australia until the mid 90's with the advent of Galaxy and Foxtel, and Foxtel has become the dominant (sole?) pay TV provider.  Other stations with international programming exist and are available by satellite, but most pay landline TV comes via Foxtel.

Foxtel didn't have adult entertainment until some years after the network went on air; the closest thing was World Movies, which sometimes screened more erotic or adult foreign films, and Foxtel marketing really hyped the adult nature of these things.  They showed a few softcore Category III Hong Kong movies like Erotic Ghost Story (1987) and Sex and Zen (1991), as well as Cat III action movies like Naked Weapon (2002). The government station Special Broadcasting Service SBS also had a number of largely uncut foreign movies, which was pretty cool.  It was not until about 2000 that Foxtel offered a softcore channel called Nightmoves, and that was available only by direct subscription.

During the late 90's, commercial stations like Channel 7 and 9 showed a series of horror and erotic/adult films late at night.  While we never got to see the vast plethora of softcore romps from Europe and Italy, we did get a range of American adult drama films like Wild Orchid, The Red Shoe Diaries, Two Moon Junction and Return To Two Moon Junction.

On a trip to America in 1988, I saw some pay TV adult channels which had some cool European softcore films.  I ended up watching a couple and ringing up a bill, haha.  One was set in an earlier time in Europe, and it seemed to involve milkmaids and a scene of gratuitous toe sucking, from what I remember.  Fun days.
