Abstract
One interesting phenomenon when looking at Indonesian cinema in the 1970s to the 1990s is the large number of national films containing elements of sex that bring out artists known as hot artists. Hot films raised titles that have sex connotations, present erotic scenes and display vulgar posters, are widely advertised in the mass media and become public consumption, even though the authorities in charge of film affairs clearly forbide films containing pornography. The method used in this writing is a historical research method which includes heuristic, criticism, interpretation and historiography stages. Sources are generally obtained through literature studies by collecting written data in the form of archives, newspapers, articles, posters and photographs. This study shows that sex in national films throughout the 1970s and 1990s not only served as a spice but also as the main menu and solely takes into account the commercial side. The role of film censorship institution on the circulation of films is not optimal because of the intervention of the government.
