a phrase coined by New York Times contributor, Richard Perez, in describing a dark subgenre of sexploitation, often exemplified by the BDSM inclined so-called "sleaze" paperbacks or pulps of the 1960s and the stag-like "roughies" or violence inclined pre-porn "adult" films and morality tales (also known as "cautionary tales"), which include the work of Russ Meyer ("Lorna," "Mudhoney"), Herschel Gordon Lewis ("Scum of The Earth"), producer David F. Friedman ("The Defilers," "A Smell of Honey, A Swallow of Brine," "A Sweet Sickness"), Mike and Roberta Findlay ("Touch of Her Flesh") and current neo-sexploitation films and books like "Run Bitch, Run" and Perez's own, "Permanent Obscurity: Or A Cautionary Tale of Two Girls and Their Misadventures with Drugs, Pornography, and Death."
Sexploitation noir or the psychosexual black and white grindhouse feature films dominated 42nd Street or "the Deuce" before the arrival of XXX.
