What a year for humans!
Honestly, the most suprising part about this fact is that the FIRST film wasn’t porn. But of course they wasted no time in using this newfound technology for lascivious purposes. The film is called Le Coucher de la Mariée and only about two minutes of footage have survived. You can watch those two minutes here, but don’t expect to be too titilated. Erotica was different back in 1896, ya know?
