Masters: Bob Guccione On Erotic Voyeurism
Erotic master Bob Guccione on voyeurism.
Bob Guccione mentioned when it came to photograph, he took a voyeuristic approach. This was true and it’s what set the pictures in Penthouse apart from the others. In pornography, we know that the models are being photographed. The models know that they are being photographed. However, it seems a tad bit naughtier and dare I say, realistic, if it doesn’t look like they know that they are being photographed.
This was not only true of the pictures, but also of the forum letters. We have to accept that at least some of the forum letters were real; they gave us was a look into the private sex lives of the people who wrote them. Even if the letters were based on nothing more than the fantasy of the writer, they gave us a look into someone’s private fantasies. The last wave of forum letters that I remember under Bob Guccione’s Penthouse seemed to revolve around cuckolding. The way these letters were presented was of men who got off on watching their wives fuck other men (a form of voyeurism). When the hit television show “Desperate Housewives” came out, I could not help but wonder if the creators had read the Penthouse forum to take the countries sexual pulse.
Filthy Fetish Voyeurism
People are reluctant to admit they are voyeurs (probably because it is a nice way of saying Peeping Tom). However, whenever there is a sex scandal involving well-known figures, even the most prudish people come out to take a peek. Long before the Screech or Paris Hilton video, and even before Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky titillated the nation with adultery and a semen stained dress, Bob Guccione brought the world it’s first ever celebrity sex tape in the form of Tonya Harding and Jeff Gillooly. This was Tonya and Jeff’s wedding night that Bob Guccione had somehow legally obtained. What made the video work so well is it’s so very voyeuristic. There is no fancy lighting or camera work. Just the camera stood pointing at the bed while Tonya and Jeff proceed to have sex. The viewer feels like he or she is looking out from a closet and that the couple is completely unaware that they are being watched. An unintended special effect is when the phone rings during the sex and Tonya’s mom leaves a message. That was about as real as it gets. Of course, now “hidden” camera shots are all the rave on the amateur sex video web sites, but Bob Guccione was the first to show us the sex video that we weren’t supposed to see.

Voyeurism, Peeping Tom’s, it all sounds so dirty. In reality, could it be that Voyeurs and Peeping Tom’s were indeed the first true patriots? In the wake of such invasions of privacy as the Patriot Act, is it not every American’s civic duty to find out what goes on behind closed doors? Sure, you could be hearing moans of ecstasy coming through walls or opened windows. However, it could be someone plotting the destruction of our country. It would seem that a true patriot would investigate and find out.
