Flick magazine: 1975 – 1976 – The First 8 Issues

Flick magazine was the first New York magazine fully dedicated to covering adult films.

It was produced on a sporadic, not-quite-monthly basis – starting with the first issue in June 1975. It contained features on many of the more successful films of the era, including ‘Defiance’, ‘The Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann’, ‘Sometime Sweet Susan’, and ‘Anyone But My Husband’, as well as interview with stars such as Jennifer Welles, Sonny Landham, and Andrea True.

It also contained some great ads for products (‘Fulfill Your Wildest Dreams with the… Electronic Everything Doll’), self-improvement (‘Increase Yourself To Mammoth Dimensions with the… Peter Pump’), and potions (‘Free Spanish Fly Pills!’)

Here are the first eight issues of Flick magazine – available in their entirety.

      Dear Lord,
      These scans are amazing. Thanks so much for posting them. I have been trying in vein, to find a website to view or download the old classic porn mags e.g Adult Cinema Review,Cinema X, Erotica X-Film Guide ,but all I ever come up with are multiple uploaders of the Cee Cee and Silwa magazines. All of the sellers have the exact product. Does anyone know an indexxing or way to see these magazines online? There is an amazing gay porn magazine site, timinvermont.com. He literally has any mag ever published ready to view for a buck a day; There must be a straight equivalent to it. II have tried hundreds of times, but always come up with the same results. Could it be i am the only person out here who treasures the classic porn mags? Any help from anyone would be deeply appreciated.
      Thanks much,,
      John NYC

    This is amazing, and I hope marks the start of The Rialto Report publishing all similar magazines from the 1970s and 80s. That would really be something!~!!~!

    Love the article with Marc Stevens. We used to have cocktails on his veranda and shop! We fell in love with a salmon suede sofa. He bought it.

    Love the vintage mags and this is one I had not heard of. Looking forward to thumbing through them. Thanks for the great job once again

    Two good reviews for Carter Stevens films (In Sarah’s Eyes and Highway Hookers) I don’t remember the magazine but obviously I love it.

    It’s great to see readable copies of these, because I think Steven Morowitz used some of these pages in the “ephemera” sections of the Henry Paris special editions…and unless you froze the frame, they just went by way too fast.

    I love reading the interviews.

    Brilliant! Would love to see more of these vintage magazines digitized for research purposes. A great archive.

    Oh, man, I’m going to be digging into these. GREAT idea.
    On the December cover – ‘What Porn From The Past Can Teach Us’!

    Brilliant – Rialto once again proves that t has become the pre eminent and only authoritative source of historical information regarding adult films.

    Hope this is a regular feature… I’d like to see Cheri, Adult Cinema Review, High Society, and others.

    Love it!

    I’d include the early ’80’s ‘Velvet’: what with the hysterical photo captions & outrageously bogus “interviews”, it was truly the ‘Mad’ magazine of smut rags.
    Forgot to say thanks, RR, for sharing this material (the ads are as fascinating as the articles)!

    Two things stand out to me…

    1) The girls were really pretty. So natural. So many porn stars today, girls in there 20’s, fill their face with fillers. Makes them actually worse looking. Marilyn Chambers was especially pretty.

    2) The hairy bushes. Damn! Some of those girls were hairy! Love it!

    Real time capsule, great idea and thanks.

    Never even heard of this! What would retro smut fans do without you? Thanks for sharing!

    I like how they intentionally made the FLICK logo in such a way that the “LI” looks like a “U” from afar…

    Some amazing women from that time period Roberta Pedon, Sylvia McFarland, Mary Waters. It was before women became plastic versions of women. When women could still be not perfect. Interesting that when the internet age took over men reverted back to real women and the plastic Barbie dolls disappeared

    Agreed the golden age of Adult Entertainment is shown in these magazines. The ads are amusing. I am tempted to vet my x-ray glasses I missed out on as a teen. Thanks again to everyone at Rialto Report.
