June 1977: LB Retires from the Adult Business

      In June 1977, after a 15-year unyielding fight against the system of sexual repression, despite incredible results, Lasse Braun retires from the adult business, leaving his heritage to the new generations. This decision was made for various reasons: (a) dislike for the greedy, superficial attitude of most distributors; (b) feeling of having done enough for the cause; (c) his involvement with the Dutch Foundation, "Documents of Evolution," which required scientific research on different topics in several countries; (d) the deception with the Amsterdam City scandal; and (e) the number of judiciary cases which had piled up against him in Italy during the past years, due to his determination to challenge the medieval ideology of censorship dominating the planet.
