I got few hundred of this kind of paperbacks. There is still one place in stockholm who sells regular xxx and fighting/wrestling etc type of book for perhaps couple bucks each. Unused old stock.
Shop in Finland who had MASSIVE amount of this kind of books closed down while ago. I assume for health reasons. Their price ranged from 1 to 25 euro. I sometimes considered buying all what was 1 euro each new copies but now regret that didn't.

If I had known they'd be worth money one day I wouldn't have gotten rid of the ones I used to have. I'm not sure if porn shops around here still sell novels, haven't been in one in years. But they used to something like five bucks each.

For some reason I noticed, back when they where still selling them, that all the incest ones suddenly stopped appearing. Not sure if that was a customs thing or if they just stopped printing them or what.

I wonder if a lot of the original art for the covers still exist in some form, somewhere. An exhibition of them would be great.

I think price is something one can't really set to specific level like with records.
In most places, old porn is garbage. They just want to get rid of it, to get new stuff.
Like said, in Finnish shop there was HUGE shelves full of 1 euro still sealed paperbacks of everything else but incest, beast and kp. And despite the price being throw-away level, shelves always remained full.
There can be international demand of collectors who need the get things, and who won't refuse 25-100usd range for product they feel they can't live without. But I'm assuming that is small market.

While some cities and some shops have problem moving this stuff, as opposition, I recall visiting one place in Paris who sold beast paperback xerox bootlegs for 34 euro each! Its admirable to think someone actually copied 150 pages, stapled them together into bad looking pile of paper and for this work obviously needs decent payment.

I'm not sure was it this site or some other xxx paperback auction site what sold kp topic paperbacks (amongst other) for 100usd each. Then same year visiting NYC, I saw a pile of 3 book bundles of exact same titles, still new stock from 70's, 7,99usd per 3 books wrapped in plastic. To guarantee getting rid of the stuff, they had wrapped copies in a way that if you wanted different titles, you still got several duplicate copies because all bundles had different selections, but always one different and one same as other bundles.

So what is worth of money and what isn't? I think all sorts of successful auctions and sites with big prices will give illusion of some price range what might not be there. You think you got valuable stuff, but it's valuable ONLY if you find the one obsessive fanatic who's willing to accept the deal. Otherwise it's just waste pulp. Which is probably more common case.


I'm not sure was it "porn gold" or other book talking about paperback business and there was said the painted/drawn covers were much much more better selling than photocovers. But I guess due cheapness, majority of paperbacks turned into photocovers sometime in 80's.
If you want good looking paperbacks, 60's, 70's, early 80's maybe. Some specific publishers, especially s/m can have magnificent artwork and design.

I have a book published by House of Lords in 1985 called Chained, Raped Widow that I picked up last year for like $5 or something. It has a pretty good drawing on the cover, which I'll post here later.

Quote
Hilda gasped when she saw a reflection in her bedroom mirror: through the slightly open door, she caught a glimpse of the chiseled abs and square jaw of the mysterious stranger who shared her cabin. She stood and spun around, her breasts swinging heavily with the momentum. She grabbed the door and flung it open, revealing shirtless Torolf (which was seriously his name) quivering with desire in the hallway.
Torolf was ashamed at being caught, but his shame made him even hotter – hotter for sex. He stepped into the room, and his bulging abs accidentally smushed into Hilda’s rich chest.
As Hilda’s buttermilk bosoms squished up against his granite abs, Torolf almost had a dick aneurysm.

"Sandra Hill always delivers".

And I didn't know smushed was a word.

Gothenburg had the BRILLIANT Dolores Comicshop which did not only carry anything from mainstream superrhero comics to old american underground titles but also had a huge section of bizarre and interesting litterature. They had at times quite an amount  of pornographic litterature & comics, bondage art and vintage stuff (both magazines and books). The day they closed was a truly sad one, I still mourn it years later.

Personally I have always liked the sleazy agent/detective paperbacks which in typical exploitation-manner spiced up the quite brainless plots with raunchy sex and gratuitous, sadistic pseudo-porn. even the quite mainstream ones are full of it. Ever since the first carter Brown book I read this has been one cultural form which I hold in very high esteem. I like it more than the strictly pornographic books, but of course the borders are quite blurred since the genre would be nothing without the filthier elements.
