Like most things in my life, I think my obsession with sleaze, trash and cheese has something to do with my childhood. I grew up in a small town in rural Australia where anything deemed strange or out of the ordinary was generally scoffed at and avoided. I of course, found myself instantly attracted to these weird and wonderful things.
For the most part I found my fix in comic books, pro wrestling and genre films. I particularly liked the “sword and sorcery” genre. Deathstalker, Beast Master, Sorceress, Hercules, Barbarian Queen, Amazons, I loved them all. Through these whacky movies I escaped to a world in which which machismo men and over sexualized women battle mythical creatures while wearing almost nothing. A special place where both men and women had massive breasts, and anything (except subtlety) could happen. The titillating vhs covers didn’t hurt either.
