X-Rated Saturday at Shelter


By David Johanssen

Depictions of sex have existed since prehistoric cave paintings, but when such material found its way into American cinema in the 1970s, the uptight nation was aghast. Now, the tasteful documentary X-Rated: The Greatest Adult Movies of All Time shows how we overcame our concerns as Showtime director Bryn Pryor brings the history of cinema sex to Shelter on Saturday, March 7, at 7pm. Combining scintillating film clips of classic adult movies with candid interviews of the biggest stars in the industry, this erotic documentary is the definitive look at the art of carnal films and how America evolved. Hosted by San Miguel’s own sexy and ever adventurous Crystal Calderoni, it promises to be an evening of naughty surprises, complete with complimentary glass of bubbly. 100 pesos.
