Gay History – True Then, True Now: The Adult Video Association’s Public Service Announcement On Personal Freedom (1982) – Video


Adult Video Association Public Service… by Movieboy5280

When the Religious Right first came along in the early 1980’s, then known as the Moral Minority this message from the Adult Video Association was tacked onto the beginning or end of every adult movie in the United States warning them of the loss of their personal freedoms by the hands of these conservative intolerant religious extremists.

If more people rented porn and watched the opening and credits of porn back then and took action we might not still be in the same mess today 35+ years later.
