Thoughts On Vintage Erotica, Tease & Lingerie With The Editor Of Delta Of Venus

Thoughts On Vintage Erotica, Tease & Lingerie With The Editor Of Delta Of Venus | Sex History | Scoop.it
Have you ever been to Delta Of Venus? It’s an online archive of vintage erotica, curiosa and other naughtiness from antiquity to 1975 — including nearly 4000 images, about 300 films, plus extras like classic erotic novels in pdf form, old sex-related audio files, etc.


Naturally a lot of the risque fun includes vintage lingerie, so I’m not ashamed to say I’m a fan. *wink* Here’s a little chat I had with the site editor and owner, Robert…

The Erotics of Invisibility

The Erotics of Invisibility | Sex History | Scoop.it

This is paper I wrote on lesbian visibility and eroticism for a class on Renaissance literature and history in 2011. It is very dense– but perhaps still enjoyable.

 

...What I argue is that this invisibility of female homosexuality is not merely a result of the historical distance from the period, but rather a consciously acknowledged component of the understanding of female same-sex erotic desire at the time. In “Sappho to Philaenis,” the secrecy and immaculateness of the title characters’ sexual activity operates as one of Donne’s central arguments for the superiority of a female-female sexual relationship.

If It’s Antique Is It Still Porn?

If It’s Antique Is It Still Porn? | Sex History | Scoop.it

If you thought the matter of who makes art exploring the issue of abortion difficult, perhaps the following antique erotic artworks will be too upsetting. That’s your warning to leave.

 

For these works go beyond the issue of basic nudity in art, beyond even the matter of erotic art, to  explore sexuality along with religion and what appears to be the opulence of wealth.

Linda's Strange Vacation

Linda's Strange Vacation | Sex History | Scoop.it

One of the few '50s-era, Paris books, not by Olympia that's worth republishing. Originally released by the Montmarte-based "Oceanic Press," Huttning's Linda, for whatever it lacks in, umm, editing, more than makes up for it with style, thoroughness and imagination.

 

The Linda of the story is a young girl on holiday at her Uncle Arthur's. Before she meets up with him, there's an encounter with a maid, a young virile cousin, then memorable scene(s) in her uncle's (a quiet-mannered author of guess what) study, comparisons with her sister, punishment, big parties, and so on.
