About

In the early 70s, adult films entered a Golden Age. One film raised the bar and started a new trend: Flesh Gordon, a soft core erotic spoof of the 1939 Flash Gordon serial.

I FOUGHT THE SEX RAY is a 230 page memoir ( plus 30 photos )by the star of Flesh Gordon, the 1974 film that launched both the adult film parody genre and the careers of several of Hollywood’s most important special effects artists, including Oscar winners Rick Baker and Dennis Muren, the president of Industrial Light and Magic. Flesh Gordon paved the way for Star Wars, proving to studios that science fiction films could be fun.

In I FOUGHT THE SEX RAY, actor/producer Jason Williams talks about his journey from top college athlete in uptight Orange County to struggling actor in Hollywood. Plunging into the biggest budget adult film of the time took him on an adventure across the country, meeting movie stars, rising comedians, and the mob. 1970s L.A. was a wild place, and this innocent was right in the middle of it, even ending up as a regular for tennis at the Playboy Mansion.

Writing his story with Derek McCaw of Fanboy Planet, Jason talks about his days working with kids fresh out of college who would become some of the most important people in the film business. His memoir features many behind-the-scenes photos and artwork from Flesh Gordon as well as his follow-up film Alice in Wonderland. I FOUGHT THE SEX RAY will be a hardcover printed in the USA on the best stock paper available. We are seeking funding for an initial print run of XXX copies.

Risks and challenges

The book has been written; the artwork has been chosen. We just want to get it in your hands. Eventually we would like to have it printed and distributed elsewhere, but for now this is an exclusive Kickstarter first edition, with copies of the book and a bonus movie poster replica signed by Jason Williams.
