The Main Point

Length: 251 pages4 hours


The story of Bernd Töst and his career as a porn movie auteur is as colourful and strange as any in the history of pornography. When the subject came of age, the world was still in the grip of post-war austerity. Töst's extraordinary and original outlook was to influence the sexual revolution of the 1960s; he was one of the few people to make sense of his era's cultural and moral chaos.

Bruno Phillips's reflective biography is the most fascinating exposé of the early porn industry and its players since Boogie Nights.

Bruno Phillips has been by turn a psychiatric nurse, adman, scriptwriter and yacht's cook. He divides his time between London, Cornwall and France.

"Watch out world, the future is coming to f*** you; and you won't like it, not as much as one of my movies." - Bernd Töst

"A sexual biography like none I've ever encountered. At times it reads like Elmore Leonard just met Henry Miller." - Oliver Maitland
