The SLAP - a personal souvenir of the dangerous 1980-90's years

This picture is a bit of a therapy for me : ) I'm speaking about a time when there was no Internet and just only one TV in the house.

Back in the 80s / 90s in France, every first Saturday of the month, at midnight sharp, CANAL + was broadcasting a porn movie. It was crypted like most programs (but you were sometimes so curious/excited that you would watch the very blurry porn movie with no sound anyway!), and if your parents had invested in the black box to watch this channel uncrypted... you had a little chance to access this fascinating adult world !
I remember how exciting and violent it looked to me. 
Actresses like Laure Sainclair were so beautiful, she was both the next-door-girl (she was born in a little city close to mine) and at the same time totally out of reach, doing things most boys in high school like me knew they would not have access before years.

It was very risky though... you had to set the TV recorder, manage to hide somewhere this big VHS tape, and the only way to watch it was on the only TV in the living room... I wonder how many of us had to endure the shame to be caught ! 

Soon !



  1. you are male or female? because alex is a unisex name in some countries (no offense)

    1. As I said in this entry, I feel I was this boy scolded : )

    2. Its certainly is a very descriptive picture, while my childhood was pre video days I can relate to being found reading a book no fourteen year old boy should have been reading.
      Mother berating me while my younger sister has been sent to get the slipper which will soon be imparting my mothers message to my soon to be bared bottom. Yes I remember that day well.


  2. Love the photo! So yong and innocent.

    1. Glad you like it ! It's a kind of little me : )
