Sex, Swastikas, and Sadism: Nazi Sexploitation [...]

a feature article by Chris Bickel

Nazi Sexploitation, a Forgotten Genre:

In the mid-1970s a whole slew of World War II-themed sexploitation films were churned out (most coming from Italy) in the wake of the highly successful Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS. Most of these films, typical 70s softcore porn pieces with swastika-sporting actors, followed the standard "Women In Prison" formula; the locale having been transferred to the Nazi death camps and field brothels. In Italy these films are known as part of the "il sadiconazista" cycle, the bulk of which were influenced as much by Ilsa as they were by three controversial Italian art-house films: Liliana Cavani’s The Night Porter, Tinto Brass’s Salon Kitty, and Pasolini’s Salo.

Salo was a major influence on the genre, though it dealt with atrocities commited by Italian Fascists rather than German Nazis. For this reason, it is excluded from the list below. It should, however, be noted for its importance to the cycle. --Chris Bickel
