Never heard of it? I hadn’t either, until I found a book that decided to take me on a wild and crazy ride through some of the film industry’s most notorious “sexploitation” posters EVER! Need proof?

Chelsea Girls – WHAT THE – ?!?!?!?

Welcome To The Wild World Of “Chelsea Girls!”

I had never heard of this movie, but this eye-opening poster certainly caught my eye. It’s just one of a series of provocative, controversial movie posters that helped define a genre of film!

Thanks again to the crazy book sellers at Taschen, who created a large photo book called “Film Posters – Exploitation”, which puts a wide array of exploitation movie posters into one great place!

Ladies They Talk About sex movie

The posters for these films, from Alberto Vargas’ artwork for “Ladies They Talk About” (1933) to Alan Aldridge’s photomontage for Warhol’s “Chelsea Girls” (1966), are masterpieces of visual innuendo, offering, in most cases, far more that the movies actually delivered.

Andy Warhol films

“Chelsea Girls” may be a controversial movie poster, but the film itself was an Andy Warhol art project – very experimental, barely released to the moviegoing public – and the poster is in keeping with the shocking, experimental and psychodelic nature of the film itself…

As for the film, here is what IMDB says: “Lacking a formal narrative, Warhol’s art house classic follows various residents of the Chelsea Hotel in 1966 New York City, presented in a split screen with a single audio track in conjunction with one side of screen.”


Made history by becoming the first “underground” film to be shown in a mainstream cinema. In a limited run at New York’s Cinema Rendezvous from December 1st 1966.

And as you can see, that is ONE provocative poster! If you look at movie posters, you will see quite a history of controversial work…

“Why Do So Many Rich Girls Go Wrong?”

It’s a question that movies have asked for decades…


Here is a web site that celebrates these iconic portraits in depravity:

I Am Curious (Yellow)

And this is a perfect example of a subtle, almost “innocent” poster that ushered in a new era in european artsploitation:

I Am Curious Yellow

“I Am Curious (Yellow)” helped break through censorship laws across the country and usher in a whole new era of movie!

Sex Kitten Christina Lindberg

And Let’s Not Forget Christina Lindberg!

Sometimes the best part of a movie is how they sell it – I mean, look at how they sold young European starlet Christina Lindberg to America – here are three of her most provocative posters – “Maid In Sweden”, “Sinner” and “Wide Open”!
