About My Passes On Girls On Glasses – Silent Porn Star

About My Passes On Girls On Glasses – Silent Porn Star | Herstory | Scoop.it

The reason these glasses are so common are that many of them survived for the very same reason of needing to be hidden. Tucked away under the bar, in the booze cabinet, and other places children, in-laws, nosy neighbors, and even spouses were expected not to peer, just saved the life of the glasses. They remained unscathed, hidden in dusty places until the now-adult children discover them as part of the estate. (Of course, the true iconic bachelor, however real or unreal he may be, he may have used the glasses to the point of wearing the decals off them… If we can believe the legends of “the bachelor life”.

As you might expect from a site titled "Silent Porn Star" this is NWS; but it's an interesting piece about such collectibles & cultural history.

Looking Back At Vikki “The Back” Dougan (A Biography) | Herstory | Scoop.it

Collecting vintage smut, as I do, I know who Vikki Dougan is; but I’ve been surprised a number of times by both the lack of recognition this iconic beauty has and the lack of information about her. So, ever obsessed as usual, I set out to correct the situation.

She was the inspiration for Jessica Rabbit, English pop artists, and more than one personal fantasy.

The Sublime Diane Webber

The Sublime Diane Webber | Herstory | Scoop.it

In the history of glamour photography, few women possessedthe combination of beauty, grace and wholesomeness that Diane Webber did. It was more than just her ample bosom (which featured incredibly perfect nipples) and dream-like hourglass figure. She was truly beautiful, with fetching, blue eyes and an overwhelming smile. She was hypnotic, even if she weren't naked! Though only 5' 2", and very curvaceous (listed by Playboy, Feb. 1956 at 39D-23-37, though she was four months pregnant at the time), she always appeared svelte and statuesque, thanks to her ballet dancer's agility and toned figure. She was photographed by some of the most famous names in glamour and nude photography, including Bunny Yeager, Peter Gowland and Russ Meyer, and was Playboy Magazine's Playmate of the Month in May 1955 and February 1956. According to several sources, she is not only the first model to show her pubic hair in Playboy, but also the first to be shown in a full-frontal nude pose.

“So many women are left out of historical records,” Dahlsad says. “Men will say, ‘I want to show off what my father did; he deserves to shine. Someone should do a book on him!’ Daughters don’t do that about their moms to the same degree, so often things get thrown away. How many men would look at their archives say, ‘Just take it all to the dumpster’? Somebody would be saying, ‘You can’t do that! You’re George Petty. Put it back!’”
