[quote=“Stanton, post:5, topic:2467”]I don’t think so.
The books were in my childhood mainly bought by teenagers, but they were written by May for adults several decades earlier. And I’m sure that the films were back in the 60s also aimed at adults, or let’s say made for the whole family, for everyone who went into a cinema.
Would probably be interesting to check the original FSK ratings.[/quote]
I was about 10-14 years old when I read the novels; I had a cousin who was a few years older than me and, like me, a great reader; he owned a dozen of novels but had stopped collecting and reading them when he was about 14-15 years of age. I bought the novels for ten guilders a three pornographic magazines I had laid my hands on. I still have most of those books (God knows what happened to the magazines), they’re still in good condition and unabridged (most later prints were abridged considerably). I don’t know for what audience May originally wrote the novels. An adult audience? If you say so … Well, the times they are a’changing …
