Gary Busey's Angelo Pappas said it best in Point Break: “22 years. Man, L.A. has changed a lot during that time. The air got dirty and the sex got clean.”

When it comes to porn, the cineskin business has also changed a lot since the '80s. The plot lines got kinkier and the hair styles got a helluva lot less cheesy. From Club Ginger to Milfwood USA to Interview with a Vibrator, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Vivid Entertainment's 1984 launch with a timeline of sexy and hilarious cover art throughout the years.
