Forward by Jorgen Rothenborg. 

"By publishing this book the success is followed up which SEX ORGIES IN PICTURES has had. In a way it is an unheard-of success, not only because the Danish as well as the foreign public liked the book, but unheard-of because SEX ORGIES IN PICTURES seemed an open-and-shut case for seizure, considering the seizures of pornography previously made by the authorities. This is did not take place redounds to the credit of the authorities in question, as they have unmistakably accepted that SEX ORGIES IN PICTURES is a survey of the artistic and curious aspect of pictorial pornography and that it fulfills a cultural mission while fascinating the pornographically interested public...It seems safe to assume that it will not last long before the day will come when this volume on pornographic or erotic photography can be published without any fear of seizure by the authorities."
