The sexual revolution of the 1960s culminated in Dr David Reuben’s Everything You Wanted To Know About Sex (But Were Afraid To Ask), published in 1969. That same year, Kärlekens Språk (The Language of Love) was released in Sweden, a sexually explicit sex education film based on clinical research made by American and Swedish doctors.
Controversy surrounded the release - to many it was little more than sexploitation masquerading as scientific study. It was denied entrance into the US, and here in the UK 30,000 protestors marched in London demanding the film be banned. Eventually granted a certificate four years later.
40 years on, The Language Of Love remains an important historical insight into the sexual behaviour of an equally important period of social change, and is rightly described as “the mother of all sex education films”.
