The Conservative Danish government surprised everyone by removing all censorship from the entertainment industry in 1969. One of the results of this legislation was a series of well-meaning but highly ridiculed attempts to "go behind the facade" of the porn industry. Hvorfor Gør De Det? ("Why Do They Do It?") asked that question to a series of rather dour-looking working-class couples who performed sexual acts on each other or their pets to the titillation of mainly Japanese and American tourists. Films like these invited the re-introduction of some form of censorship, if for no other reason than to raise the level of filmmaking.
