"It's worth speculating on the influence [on Naughty!] of Stephen Marcus's The Other Victorians on the film's Victorian sections. Marcus's book had been available in paperback since 1969 and highlighted as an important book by Nova. [...] It draws on some of Marcus's cast of characters - Henry Ashbee's extensive porn collection, the dubious dealings of John Hotten, Henry Hayler's 'dirty pictures'. [...] It demonstrates a comparable accumulation of primary material -'primitive' silent porn, the diverse material at the Amsterdam 'Wet Dream' Film Festival, footage of John Lindsay shooting hardcore in a suburban front room, explaining the 'come shot' to his leading man." --British Low Culture: From Safari Suits to Sexploitation (1998) by Leon Hunt
