    Re: tv channel American XXXtasy

    I spotted one of the old VideoCipher II / "Dish Guy" ads from American Exxxtasy on YouTube the other day. For those waxing nostalgic, it's worth checking out!

    Here's the link, incidentally: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2-R7bTPsC4

    Fascinating ad. Presumably that's the "whistling" that some people remembered? And what the hell is that small clip that scoots across the screen at the end of the spot, with the woman laughing maniacally and cracking that lever?!

    You heard the fellow! That was sexy!

    There's nothing saucier than, um, spinning a bingo wheel and cackling.

    My brother used to have this channel back in the day. So who can identify the 4 movie stills they show in that one part of the vid?

    On a peripherally related topic, I heard a talk-radio host talking today about "SuperTV," which was a scrambled over-the-air service in the early 80s in the Washington-Baltimore area (see the Wikipedia entry) which showed (softcore) adult features in addition to uncut recent Hollywood films (sort of like a proto-Cinemax).

    yep, that is the whistling I remember. In that clip when they show the four movies, who is the woman in the top left?

    That's Brigitte Monet. Really beautiful actress, not the most dynamic performer though.

    I think the "cackling" woman at the end is the "Ginger" character I mentioned above (the channel's main on-air personality until the "Dish Guy" came along).

    Re: tv channel American XXXtasy

    There is another American Extasy ad on YouTube here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=0tRjr6uImXs

    It features the "Ginger" character in overals with no top on underneath (you don't quite get to see any nipple though, dang it!). Anybody know who she is? Is she a porn star, or some anonymous someone?

    Incidentally, the music being played at the end of the ad is the funky "station ID bumper" music (with saxophone and other music) that I mention in post #31.

    I do recall ON TV (in LA) actually showing edited versions of XXX films, like Debbie Does Dallas & Neon Nights. (The Raincoat Theater DVD versions actually have those versions on the DVD as bonuses.)

    So when is someone going to find an old tape to share with us on DVD? Come on, don't be greedy!

    I'm a new member and I joined because of this thread. As Tim put it, I am jonesin' for an 82' smut fix. Were any copies of the American XXXtasy movies ever made as Tim offered? If so, I would love copies of any of the edited movies. To me, the edited movies are better than the full hardcore. I have the edited "Wild Dallas Honey" and "Brierpatch Dolls" recorded from American Xstasy onto VHS years ago and then transferred to DVD that I am willing to share. The first few minutes of Brierpatch Dolls is missing, but it's still a very good movie.

    Also, did any of you ever see "The Pleasure Channel"? It was on satellite before American Xstasy and it showed some excellent edited movies too. I would love copies of any Pleasure Channel movies if anyone has any. If anyone has any of the American XXXtacy or Pleasure Channel movies on VHS or DVD I would be glad to copy and return your original and I will copy and share the two movies I already have. Thanks - Wayne

    Hey Wayne,

    As far as I know nobody's been able to dig up their old XXXtasy broadcast tapes but if they do my offer to transfer/share them still stands. I just re-read this thread and was reminded that I've got a stash of glossy '82 ONTV program guides buried somewhere in my parents' attic. The "After Hours" section of these was always a treat for my prepubescent eyes. And while my parents refused to pay the extra 8.95 (or whatever it was) for the edited X-programming the mere descriptions of Neon Nights, Wanda Whips Wall Street, etc were a nice consolation prize and introduced me to alot of Golden Age titles. When I find these guides I'll PDF and post them here. Btw, here in Portland ONTV was affiliated with the defunct UHF independent channel KECH 22.
